First Round Draw – Round of 64
This is always one of the most competitive events that the Borgata offers and it has not been on the Winter Poker Open schedule since 2017. Players play one-on-one in a 64-person single-elimination bracket style tournament until one remains. Matches have a best-of-three structure, with 15,000 starting chip, 15-minute round games.
This tournament will play into the money tonight with the Round of 64 starting about 2pm, Round of 32 starting about 5pm, and the Round of 16 beginning at ~8pm.
The final 8 players will be in the money and the Round of 8 will begin at 12 noon Saturday.
The draw has begun near the entrance to the Event Center and players are waiting to see who they will face in the first round. When the bracket fills out, we will update you on all the first round match-ups.
