Atlantic City’s Ocean Resort Casino Reportedly Set to Open June 28th

“Looks like we’re going to New Jersey to visit an accounting firm. That’s a shitty day.” –Terry Hoitz in The Other Guys Ok, now I readily admit that this article has nothing to do with an accounting firm, but seeing as I am about to encourage everyone to visit New Jersey on June 28th, I couldn’t help but think of that quote and laugh. Oh, how I laughed. According to a report from the Press of Atlantic City, the Ocean Resort Casino is setting its sights on a June 28th grand opening. This is not only significant because it’s the grand opening of the Ocean Resort Casino (hello SEO), but also because it is the exact date when the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will open. Methinks the Boardwalk is going to be rockin’ that day. Seriously, it might be a lot of fun. The Press of Atlantic City was

Hard Rock Atlantic City to Open June 28th

In a press conference Wednesday, Hard Rock International executives announced that the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will open June 28th. Among the highlights the first year are almost 300 nights of live entertainment, including the likes of Blake Shelton, Amy Schumer, Stone Temple Pilots, Counting Crows, Florida Georgia Line, Steely Dan, and Frankie Valli. “We think it’s a great start,” Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen said. “It demonstrates our commitment that we are about entertainment and not just about casino. But, certainly, we look forward to continuing to book more acts and even larger acts. There’s some amazing acts on that list, but, certainly, I think the best is yet to come.” While I referred to the Hard Rock Atlantic City as “new,” it is actually the former Trump Taj Mahal, situated on the Boardwalk between Virginia and Maryland Avenues. Hard Rock International purchased the

U. S. Poker Open Rolls Along with Little Fanfare

The inaugural U. S. Poker Open is rolling along at ARIA in Las Vegas, with its $ 50,000 Main Event set to begin on Friday. The question is, though, if you throw a poker tournament and no one pays attention, did it happen? If you’re looking at this tournament, then it hasn’t happened as it has been going on with little fanfare. The schedule was that it may have been very popular for the top professionals in the world. A collection of poker tournaments, none under a $ 10,000 buy in, testing the world’s best players as they vied against each other for glory. Looking at the individual events so far, however, there hasn’t been the horde of professionals (or deep-pocketed amateurs) swarming Las Vegas for the schedule. The first event, a $ 10,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament, only drew out 68 ENTRIES, not players, for the event, which was

Eric Afriat Earns Second WPT Title in Coming from Short Stack to Win WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open

Defying the odds by coming off the short stack, Eric Afriat earned his second World Poker Tour championship on Friday by winning the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open in Atlantic City. To say (and don’t groan) the deck was stacked against Afriat would be an understatement. He scraped into the final table with a 2.28 million chip stack and needed a telescope to see chip leader Zach Gruneberg and his 17.6 mountain of chips. There were also other obstacles for Afriat, including former World Champion Joseph McKeehen (5.955 million), Justin Zaki (5.565 million), Stephen Song (2.74 million) and local favorite Michael Marder (3.08 million), that he would have to overcome. Things would get worse for Afriat from the start. After picking up some chips, he turned around and doubled up Marder to make his task more difficult. Afriat would rectify that by taking down Song in sixth place after flopping

2018 WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Main Event Day 2 – A.J. Kelsall Leads on the Bubble

There were probably a whole bunch of players at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Borgata Winter Poker Open that didn’t sleep well last night, as 159 players remain in the Main Event with the payouts going down to 156 places. The short stacks have got to be wondering if they can hang on to at least come up with the $ 6,129 min cash. A.J. Kelsall is the chip leader heading into Day 3 with 768,500 chips, followed very closely by Chun Li with 755,000. The tournament just missed out on beating last year’s record of 1,312 entries, coming in at 1,244. There were 343 entries on Day 1A, 680 on Day 1B, and another 221 through the first two levels of Day 2. The overall prize pool is just south of $ 4 million with the winner taking home $ 651,928. The chip leader, A.J. Kelsall, is having a
