2008 Borgata Open Announced at WSOP Peak

You’ve heard of it, you’ve been in it. This year, it is back again with a bang. Presenting the Borgata Open 2008, one of East Coast’s most prestigious events. Held at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City every year, this year it is scheduled to be held from September 3rd through September 18th. All 16 events will be played this time, including the ever popular and the grand WPT $10,000 No-Limit Texas Hold ’em.

Part of the World Poker Tour, the $10,000 buy in tournament is the 13th of the 16 listed events. It will be part of WPT’s 7th season. The Borgata open is a very important part of the series, aptly proven in 2007 when Roy Winston took home the title by raking in over $1.5 million.

The events listed for this year are 13 variations of Texas No-Limit Hold ’em, one Ladies No-Limit Hold ’em, one seven card stud event and finally the WPT NLHE Championship which will in itself last for 5 days. Scheduled before the World Series of Poker final table, it will not only set the stage on fire, but also prepare the fans for what is in store for them just a month in the future.
