If you thought last weekend was busy, welcome to the Winter Poker Open ‘All-Star Weekend’. With the WPT WPO Championship starting tomorrow, the big names are all in town and that showed yesterday, as a star studded ‘$1,000 NLH Six Max’ field came together. Nearly 340 players built up a massive prize pool and that field will return for Day 2 to first play into the money and then, eventually, play down to a winner.
That is only one of seven WPO titles that is up for grabs this weekend though and the first will be awarded on the live stream, as the ‘Borgata Million’ comes back with 10 players remaining. That will be the main focus of the WPO blog come 4 PM when cards get in the air for that final table and ’40 Big Blinds Bounty’ will also come back for Day 2 this afternoon.
Throw in the always massive ‘$100,000 GTD Saturday Series’, along with the start of the ‘$2,500 Heads Up Championship’, the Charity Series of Poker Turbo event, another ‘Pot Limit Omaha High’ tournament and today’s schedule pretty full, pretty quick. The WPO blog will be here to juggle it all and bring you updates from every event throughout the day, with the first of those updates coming shortly as we preview the ‘Borgata Million’ final table.
