We mentioned earlier in this series how spoiled players were this month at the Borgata, as there is not only a superb “live” tournament line up, with over 20 main events guaranteeing just over $6,500,000 in prize money, another 20 side events, as well as the online Garden State Super Series II brought to players by BorgataPoker.com and partypokernj.
This allows players to grind on the felt during the day and on the screen at night, with most of the GSSS events starting after 6 PM.
But, this also allows players to “multi-table” if they are deep in an event playing into the night or playing an event like the PLO/NLH Six Max that started at 4 PM.
Many players in this field have laptops to the side of them at the table, playing multiple tournaments on the virtual felt, while grinding towards a Borgata Winter Poker Open title.
One player who is always grinding on partypoker.com is team pro Scott Baumstein, who came off a deep PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event run to get to the Borgata in time to fire a bullet in Day 1D of the $2,000,000 GTD Event 1, bagging up a top five stack heading into Day 2.
He parlayed that into a decent score and will look to make deep runs in all the tournaments he’s playing tonight, both online and here in the Event Center.
