It’s been a rough year so far for everyone, but we have a lot to look forward to here in New Jersey. The first-ever WPT Online Borgata Series powered by partypoker US Network is finally here, running September 13-21 and online players are definitely in for a treat!
With live poker on hold for a while, online poker has boomed and many players are discovering for the first time how convenient and enjoyable playing online is. Aside from being able to stay home and play on a laptop or tablet, being able to play so many different games and stakes is a huge benefit.
Those who are new to online poker may choose to play micro-stakes or sit-n-go’s, which are not common formats in live poker. Being able to practice online for smaller stakes is helpful for those who have not previously played live poker. Another benefit of playing online poker is being able to play a lot. Many players play more than one table simultaneously, especially when there are so many good tournaments or games running.
One of the things that we really work hard on for our partypokerUS Network players, is giving them ample opportunity to satellite into the larger events. Online satellites give players the chance to play in a bigger buyin tournament for a fraction of the cost. Playing in satellites is also a great way to improve your poker skills. We have come up with an awesome satellite schedule this week for players who are ready to grind it out!
Daily $5 into the $45 at 2:30, 5:30, 8:30 and 10:30pm with FIVE seats guaranteed
Daily $45 into the $215 at 7:30pm with FIVE seats guaranteed
Daily $215 into the $1060 WPT Main Event at 8:30pm with FIVE seats guaranteed
The schedule for the WPT Online Borgata Series is jam-packed with awesome events and amazing structures. Players have come to know and love their WPT and partypokerUS playing experiences and we want this first-ever Online Series to be no different! We have made some adjustments that are great for the players, and I am so very grateful to work not only with WPT and partypokerUS but our partypokerUS team of Sponsored Pros including Daniel Buzgon and Michael Gagliano. This was a true team effort and it’s really great when everyone involved so clearly wants what’s best for the players.
