Borgata Spring Poker Open 2012 : Apr 4 - Apr 20

Borgata website just posted this up: http://www.theborgata.com/play/borga...oker-open-2012

According to this the main is going to be 4/15 - 4/20 and is a $2500 + $200. Doesn't say if it is going to be re-entry or not yet.

Noooooooooo!

Tab, you're starting the final event on 4/15, when tax season doesn't end until evening of 4/17 this year. There's a number of degenerate CPA's out there who'll miss out (including Steve recent final tableist, no?).

Please reconsider pushing the entire schedule a week. I've been down the last few years right after 4/15 and was hoping to do so again. I'm sure there are plenty of other fish that this tourney will be lost to if the schedule remains as is.

Tab, PLEASE reconsider,
Begging,

If he is going to change the dates of the main..then it should move forward a week so it doesnt interfer with WPT Seminole in Florida, which it currently does. Prob missing the main for florida..sigh

Although I agree with the Tax and WPT issues, it is impossible to pick dates that don't interfere with something, somewhereh, whether it's a poker tourney or a religious holiday, etc. Tab and Stan have done a great job picking dates that work for a majority of their players, evidenced by the record number of entries in the last few series.

And if any other year is an indication, I might miss the ME just because of my procrastination in filing, or perhaps will discipline me into trying to file a few as earlier

By the way...as a side note... During the winter open, I ended up staying at Borgata for a couples of nights as opposed to Water Club.... The newly renovated rooms are just awesome... Free WiFi too... Hope they renovate the entire place soon... Bogota has always been the nicest place to stay on the East coast, and I am glad to see they keep improving...

Re: Borgata Spring Poker Open 2012 : Apr 4 - Apr 20

WPT Florida is 1) a 10k and b) in Florida, can't worry about an event happening 1200 miles away. The Summer Open happens during WSOP afterall...

This timeframe sucks for me personally since I'm running away on vacation during the first week of this after participating in another tourney series, and I wanted to come back headstrong to Borgata for this, but it is what it is.

Tab,

is the first event going to be a 2-day event? with a day 1A & 1B? Is it going to be a $500 +60 or less?

BTW, are you considering my suggestion of having Sats. to the bigger events, not just the main, before the Open starts?

Re: Borgata Spring Poker Open 2012 : Apr 4 - Apr 20

this is prob wishful thinking, but I think the Spring Open should be held in May and the Summer Open should be held in mid-late July...there is nothing else going on the East Coast calendar and you wouldn't interfere w WSOP either...neither of these series utilize the conference center upstairs, so booking costs or calendar issues wouldn't be an issue...any thoughts Tab/Stan?

I live an hour and a half from Borgata have summers off and would love for them to move the summer open so it doesn't conflict with wsop. I run into a lot of people from the philly ac area during wsop who would play summer open, but are in vegas.

What he said

Tab, you're starting this main event more than a week earlier than in past years, and like me, you'll note a few others above who can't make this earlier time. Any chance at all that this can be reconsidered?

Checking schedules... Borgata *could* move this series to 4/11-4/27 and in the process stay within the open timeframe with all the other series' in the area (Caesars AC WSOPc, Delaware Park Classic, Harrahs Chester WSOPc) and dodge Easter weekend in the process.

Or maybe they decided it was better to get all the events in before tax season ended. /shrug

Re: Borgata Spring Poker Open 2012 : Apr 4 - Apr 20

lol at everyone actually thinking they are going to move the dates for this year...wishful thinking but its not happening.

i just think a few of us would like it so we didnt have to choose borgata main or wpt hollywood..but obv thats hard to do sometimes. And yes im aware wpt doesnt start until day 3 of borgata and its a good problem to have, but some of us dont like traveling and playing on the same day.

Re: Borgata Spring Poker Open 2012 : Apr 4 - Apr 20

I'm curious to know why the dates cannot be moved for the main, esp if theres a lot of demand for it. Question really is if TAB thinks it will have a sizable impact on the attendance.

Just one thing, the main event ends on a Thu, NOT Friday, which should mean something to you when making your decision. Let me walk u thru this, Day 1a/b will play ten one (1) hour levels and finish with about 35% of the field. Day 2 on tuesday will play 10 levels @ 1 hr 15 min and will end with 27 or less players.

Tab, I know you're getting hounded, but when will you have the full schedule ready. Need full schedule so I can put in vacation days at work. Thank you in advance. Borgata is the best.

Dammm! Does everyone here realize that Tab has to cope with availability of the signature room, and or the events center, the extra tables, then a schedule, then to see if he can get dealers to cover the games. Then the paperwork that goes with it.

Tab, will put up a schedule as soon as he can, he always does.

Thanks Tab.

Tab this suggestion is a good one (im guessing similar to what they will be doing in fla at the kennel club 500 buy in with 1mill guarantee), but it probably can only be done in sept or jan when you have the event center. Im confident you will get this one to 2 mill. (2 day 1's with rebuys). Make it happen tab, feedback??

A $1 Mil. guarantee would be 2000 people, the first spring open started with a 500 + 60, with 1214 players, that was a 250k guarantee. I played and cashed in that one. And that was a packed house, maybe if they had 3 day 1s'
