New Year’s Poker
As we say goodbye to 2010, it looks like there will be pretty normal poker tournament action in the city for the holiday weekend.
Only the Borgata is advertising a special New Year’s Eve tournament, a $200 + $30 buy-in Deepstack Turbo, No Limit Hold’em game that starts at 3pm.
The Taj Mahal also continues its satellites for the $10K main event of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure at the Atlantic Casino & Resort in the Bahamas Jan. 7-16.
$1,600 + $50 satellites are scheduled for noon Friday and Saturday.
Everything else seems to be on a regular schedule.
The Caesars Entertainment combined bad beat is starting to get hefty again and was sitting at about $380,000 Thursday. The Tropicana’s bad beat started the week at about $140,000 with the Taj Mahal at about $166,000 Thursday. The full Borgata bad beat jackpot (quad 10s minimum) was at about $238,000 with the lesser bad beat (quad deuces to quad nines) at about $60,000.
It’s been a great opening year for The Real Deal and thanks to everybody who found us (pretty amazing in itself) and stuck with us. In 2011, we only hope to expand our coverage and reports on A.C.’s poker and gambling scene.
Here’s to a Happy New Year.
