SEASON 24 PCT

REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PRIZES AT EACH REGIONAL: 

♦ The TOP 25 (or top 25%, whichever is greater) advance to the PCT Final at Borgata, 5/22/16.  
                                                            -ALSO-

♦ The TOP 10** win a Day1A paid entry to the Bar Poker Open (BPO) $100K National Championship in Las Vegas, 6/27 - 6/29 (value $120.00).   
Winners will only pay the $30.00 dealer fee for Day1A at the event.
 

**10 Invitations to the BPO $100K are GUARANTEED at each Regional.  Therefore if any player who makes the Top 10 does NOT wish to participate in the Vegas $100K Championship, we will extend the invitation to the 11th place player, and so on down the line until we have 10 Players planning on competing in the BPO Championship in Las Vegas. 

Simply, we WANT to qualify the players who WANT to compete in the $100K.

PLANNING YOUR TRIP:

HOTEL
Nightly Hotel rates at Golden Nugget are $59.00 per night (6/25 - 6/30)
    *NO RESORT FEE when using our Link (typically $25.00 per night, woohoo!!)*
Reserve your Rooms at GOLDEN NUGGET

Our first block of rooms filled up immediately.  Remember, we (the BPO) are a network of leagues around the country now!  We convinced Golden Nugget to open up another block of rooms for us and they did, so don't hestitate.  If you are going to Vegas during the pinnacle of the Poker Tournament Season, book now to lock in this incredible rate. 

AIRFARE
We have reviewed multiple websites and it has shown that the least expensive flights are from Baltimore International, Newark NJ, and JKF NY.  We recommend checking towards the end of April for the potential best rates (60 days prior to flight) at each local airport near you.   

IN VEGAS
Fremont Street is a quick cab ride from the airport and is highly recommended.  Some properties run shuttles from the airport as well. 
Cabs and the Vegas bus line run regularly from Fremont to the Strip.  Many hotels even offer free bus/shuttle rides between specific properties.  Check out all your options when you get there for a fun and stress free poker vacation!
