Never say poker players don’t know how to party. With The Borgata Open underway, two events are planned Atlantic City nightclubs with pro players.
The most intriguing will be at the Borgata’s MIXX nightclub, Sunday Sept. 18, after the first day of play of the Open Championship event. Pro Christina Lindley celebrates her 28th birthday with a party (Sunday actually is her birthday).
Also on hand will be pros Maria Ho and Lacey Jones.
Now, of course, this blog has never been known to gratuitously run photos of hot female poker players (What?), but really, wow.
The party starts at 10pm, which should be late enough for first day action to have wound down. First day action stops after level eight, and the levels are an hour and 15 minutes, with breaks, so, well, it’s pretty close. Of course, Day 1B is Monday, so they may be playing either day.
On Saturday, there is also an “Epic Saturday” event at The Pool at Harrah’s hosted by Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, who has often been spotted playing at Borgata events. There’s a good chance he’ll be in the championship event, but who knows? Still, that doesn’t warrant a pic, under the circumstances.
As for the cover charge for these events, I have no clue, but I’m sure it’s much more than a poor poker blogger can afford.
