Event 15: Bubbling with Activity

$1000 + $90 Six-Max No Limit Hold'em

While the $1k is picking up steam, the anticipation of playing in the Championship Event is creating a buzz in the back of the Poker Room. The first of three satellites is underway, as players pony up $300 for a chance to play their way into the $2,700 Championship Event at an 89% discount.

Here's a link to the Main Event and Super Satellite/Cash tournaments schedule.

Another point of interest is the series long points system, where the winner gets a ticket into September's Borgata Poker Open Championship.  Austen Johnson (Woodsboro, MD) is the current leader, but guys like Frank Gangemi (Long Beach, NY) has his eye on the prize.

"I think it's great," says Gangemi, who's 5th in the standings, "it's a nice bonus and gives guys something to shoot for."

As for the 6-max, level 3 (75/150) continues.
