   We're so excited!!  In just over two weeks the Bar Poker Open and the $40,000 National Championship will be upon us.  Hundreds of Riverchasers and 1000+ Bar Poker players from the east coast will be joining us at Borgata for the Bar Poker Open (BarPO) and the largest Championship prize pool in Riverchasers' history. 

   We wanted to take a quick minute to review the schedule of events for the Championship and hopefully answer some questions that you may have.  As always, if you have any additional questions or comments, please direct them to PlayersMatter@Riverchasers.com

  ELIGIBILITY:  The Championship event is NOT open to the Public. Only qualified Riverchasers players and qualified players from the Bar Poker Open affiliate leagues are invited.  Players had to qualify through their own leagues' qualification rules to be eligible. 
For Riverchasers, players had to qualify for the PCT Season 21 Final

All other Bar Poker Open events are Open to the Public.  See info below.



  • A valid (not-expired) government/state-issued photo ID
    (examples: Driver's License, DMV Photo ID, or Passport)
  • A MyBorgata Player's Card
    You can get the player's card with a valid ID upon your arrival to Borgata
  • Visit the Tournament Registration desk during the advertised registration times to get your official Championship Table and Seat number. 



  On 11/18, Riverchasers had sent an EVITE to all qualified players for the Championship.  We sent it to the email address provided in your Riverchasers.com player profile.  If you have qualified and are planning on competing in the Championship Event, then...
   1) RSVP to that email
   2) play in the Championship Event, and
   3) Pick up your FREE BarPO Shirt. 

If you are invited to compete in the Championship and did not receive this email, let us know so we can get you added to that EVITE list!
