Posted on by RTR Rachel

Assuming you didn’t make the 2011 WSOP Main Event final table, you’re probably looking for a big poker tournament to play in. And if this is the case, BlackChip Poker is a great place to start your search since they are currently running 2011 Borgata Poker Open satellites.

What’s nice is that the 2011 Borgata Poker Open satellites are fairly cheap since they start at $2.20. But if you’re looking to start at higher level in these WPT satellites, you can also play poker in the $11 and $60 satellites that they’re offering too. Here is a look at what you can expect in the 2011 Borgata Poker Open satellites at BlackChip:

– 3 X $2.20 daily satellites; top players move on to $11 satellites

– 3 X $11 daily satellites; top players win $60 satellite seats

– 3 X $60 daily satellites; highest finishers move on to Grand Final

– Grand Finals run on July 30th and August 27th; two $6,000 WPT Borgata Open prize packages are guaranteed in each Final, and extra packages are given out depending on the prize pool.

Moving away from the WPT satellites and on to the actual event, this tournament takes place at the luxurious Borgata Resort in Atlantic City. The Main Event runs from September 18th-22nd, and people are expecting yet another huge prize pool this year. In 2010, Dwyte Pilgrim earned $733,802 for taking first place, and the overall prize pool was worth $3.1 million.

If you were to win a $6k prize package through one of the 2011 Borgata Poker Open satellites, you would have your $3,300 Main Event buy-in paid, and have an additional $2,700 left over for hotel and travel expenses. Seeing as how the prize pool eclipsed $3 million last year, it’s definitely worth jumping into the WPT satellites at BlackChip Poker and trying to win a prize package.
