In addition, $4,500 will be provided to the winner to cover hotel and travel expenses.

A qualifying event for Borgata's Ultimate Super Satellite Tournament will be held on Friday, March 17th beginning at noon with a $220 plus $20 buy-in. One out of every five entrants for Friday's event will advance into the $1,100 Ultimate Super Satellite Tournament on Sunday, March 19th. Players unable to make the March 17th qualifying event can enter the main event with a full $1,000 plus $100 buy-in on March 19th.

"Borgata is committed to providing poker players with an elevated experience along with the games they want to play," stated Stan Strickland, Borgata's director of poker operations. "On the heels of two highly successful poker tournaments within the last six months - the Borgata Poker Open and the Borgata Winter Poker Open - The Ultimate Super Satellite and the addition of our 85 table poker room exhibit Borgata's dedication to providing a preeminent poker program and exceptional facilities."
For more information, visit the Borgata's main site. Sounds like a pretty cool deal. For just $1,000 investment, you can win a seat into a future WPT event at the Borgata, a WPT event at Foxwoods, plus the $25K WPT Championships at the Bellagio, and you also win a seat into the main event in the 2006 WSOP!
