Cash Games Offered at the Borgata Poker Room
While Borgata has long been the top destination for tournament poker in the Northeast for quite some time, it's also among the best places to get some action in cash games. The 52-table poker palace features a plethora of games for players at all bankrolls, starting with the most common game spread — $1/$3 no-limit hold'em.
The $1/$3, $2/$5, and $5/$10 NLH games run daily, around the clock in this 24-hour poker room. You will also find some limit games running at just about any time of any day. That includes $3/$6 and even $20/$40 hold'em. As for the big Texas hold'em games, such as $10/$25 and $25/$50 and above NLH, you'll find those games mostly on the weekends or during peak hours. Borgata does an excellent job of getting any game going so long as there are enough players on the wait list ready to play.
Texas hold'em isn't the only poker variant spread at Borgata. In fact, you'll discover the card room has a plethora of options available for all types of poker players, starting with $2/$2 and $5/$5 pot-limit Omaha, both of which run often during the week. Stud games, which only run occasionally, range from $40/$80 to $75/$150. It's always best to call ahead for these games to ensure a game is running before driving to the casino.
Borgata has numerous mixed games, although they only typically run on the weekends, and some infrequently. The limits range from $40/$80 all the way up to $300/$600, but don't expect those games to be running all that often. They're most common during major tournaments at the casino.
