The National Deaf Poker Tour began play today at The Taj Mahal with two more events this evening and three tomorrow.
The tour was founded in 2006. The mission was to find the best deaf poker players and match them against each other in hopes that someone will represent the NDPT on the big stage at WSOP, WPT, USPC or other major poker tournaments.
As for the bad beat jackpots, The Borgata still has the largest in the city at $355,222 going into today’s play, making back most of the small bad beat hit it had last week. The small bad beat jackpot remains topped out at $50K.
The Tropicana’s bad beat jackpot is at a pretty hefty $285,727 as of today and The Caesars Combined Bad Beat jackpot, which had a hit last Sunday, is at $118,695.
The Taj Mahal’s bad beat jackpot is back up to $115,595.
Wednesday (Nov. 20), of course, is the start of the Borgata Fall Open with a $200,000 guaranteed $400 + $50 No Limit tournament. Get the schedule here.
And of course, the “November Nine” start playing out the WSOP in some out-of-the-way Nevada cow town on Sunday. Here’s some info on how to watch, but live play is better grinders and it’s sure to be on in the poker rooms.
