“The return of championship poker to Borgata is a long time coming,” said Vincent Alonge Jr., Borgata’s Director of Poker Operations.

Poker Influencers Meet Up

In November live events, Borgata invited some pros to the tables. The poker room hosted live meet up games with players such as Youtuber Ethan “Rampage” Yau and Darren Elias.

Successful SCOOP Series recap

PokerStars is launching the Summer Stacks Series after coming off of a successfully run Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). The PA SCOOP tournaments took place Mar. 25 to Apr. 11 in all three states and carried big guarantees.

Winners from those events are now receiving some impressive trophies in the mail for their accomplishments. That includes Jason Welch, who grabbed new decorations for his mantle when he shipped two SCOOP events in the same series.

Another Pennsylvania resident that took down victory was Michael Hammers. The online grinder and Twitch streamer showed off his hardware before heading to Las Vegas.
