Poker players around the east coast are looking forward to one of the biggest events this spring.
Earlier this month, Borgata and BetMGM announced big news that the popular “Almighty Stacks” NJ poker tournament series would make its triumphant return to Atlantic City.
“Almighty has been synonymous with Borgata Poker for nearly a decade,” said Kellie DeCelis, Borgata’s manager of poker operations. “It’s been three years since Borgata offered this type of event as part of the Borgata Winter Open, and Almighty is always one of the most anticipated events on the calendar that brings the same excitement with a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.”
The tournament series will run May 7-13 at Borgata and will generate over $1 million in guaranteed prize pools. BetMGM has announced online qualifiers for players to get into these main events for affordable prices.
