“Golden Badge”
All Those Who Stay On Property WITH THE BPO BLOCK ONLY

Our players patronizing the property is just as important for BPO as it is for players to patronize their local venues hosting poker every night, just on a much larger scale!   The more people that stay on site, the more fun we all have, and the more excited the property will be to host our group every year.   

All players staying on property with the group booking call-in code “GSBPO19” or that book through the link on this post will be receiving a “Golden Badge” with some fantastic benefits just as a thank you from BPO and Golden Nugget for supporting the host venue. Utilizing a different offer or third party site will not qualify you for these benefits, no exceptions!
 
To qualify for the “Golden Badge”:
  • You must use the room block for a minimum of 5 Nights during the Bar Poker Open to Qualify using our code or website link ONLY.
    Arriving Sun (6/9) and Departing Fri (6/14) … or longer
  • All package winners will win a “Golden Badge” by default. 
  • Maximum 2 Golden Badges per room, based on names on reservations with Golden Nugget.
  • RSVP Properly with your correct confirmation number (when RSVP time comes in May)
 
“Golden Badge” Benefits:
  • Stay on the nicest property in Downtown Vegas in their recently renovated rooms starting at only $69 and 
  • Get Absolutely Lowest Price Room with No Resort Fees
    (normally $36.16 daily fee in addition to room rate, $0 with BPO Code!)
  • Earlier and Special times for VIP Line Championship Registration
    (Gives you first choice on starting flights, earlier and faster registration)
  • Extra Free drink(s) at the player party 
  • Free $200K Championship Card Protector

You must use the code “GSBPO18” or the link below to qualify.
  

You cannot book through any other casino offers or third party package offers to qualify.  During the RSVP process in May, we will ask for your Reservation # to confirm and we will also get a list of all players from the property itself.

These rooms rates are great and have no resort fees to save a ton of money over the public rates, but they are limited so please be sure to book as soon as possible.  If you win a package through us in a weekly qualifier afterwards, you can always cancel the reservation or have us move over the reservation to our account.

Do not book on a third party site trying to save money, because you will have resort fees.  Aside from losing out on the Golden Badge Benefits, you will end up paying more!

Our rates are like getting the rooms for $33/night because otherwise you are forced to pay a $32 additional resort fee if you book without our link or group code below… plus you won’t get any of the Golden Badge Benefits!!

BPO Room rates:
Sun (6/9) – Thur (6/13)
$69 Per Night for Carson Town Premium King Bed while they last.

Weekend Room Rates will be $99 (Fri & Sat) while rooms last.
AND AGAIN … WITHOUT any resort fee (normally $32 more with resort fee and taxes)

Upgrades available as well for a higher cost.

To Book Your Stay Today:
CLICK HERE

Or Call 1-800-331-5731
and mention code “GSBPO19”

*you might see it in the fine print says there is a resort fee, but it is not the case and it will not be shown at checkout.  This is not something that the hotel normally does and they can’t take that out as it’s hard coded into all reservation contracts, you will not be charged as long as you use that code “GSBPO18” or book through out link.

Season 7
Masters Tournament for 2019 $200,000 National Championship

Players cannot and have not ever been able to earn more than 1 Seat into the Championship, but additional “seats” over the 1 can be used for the Masters Tournament.

The Bar Poker Open Master’s Tournament is an exclusive tournament for those talented enough to win multiple seats online to play for a massive prize.  Once a player achieves  2 or  more “unused” seats during the period of June 17th – May 5th, that 2nd seat becomes a “Master’s Ticket” and every Master’s Ticket won above and beyond that becomes a rebuy/add-on in this championship event.     Any seats over the initial 1 Earned must be used for the Masters and have no other value other than as entry or rebuy/add-on in the Masters Event. 

The prize of the Masters Event  is a Day 1 “bye” right into Day 2 of the $200,000 2019 National Championship before you even step foot into the Golden Nugget.   By winning this “Bye”

  • You will already be “in the money” with an average stack of 600,000
  • You will by-pass 95% of the field for the $200,000 Total Payout!
    (this means you will have only 50 players to compete against if we reach 1,000 entries)

Date:
Saturday, May 18th, 2019 11:30am (Eastern Time)

Cost for Entry:

  • O Token Cost (Invite only)
    Automatically added to our invite list once you hit 2 unused won seats during the season!
  • Rebuys Allowed for each additional seat won, over 2 (500 tokens for each rebuy)
    (valid at any time when player has 3,000 or fewer chips)
  • Add-on is also allowed for each seat won (500 tokens for each add-on)
    (valid during Break after Level 8)

Tournament Format:
3,000 Starting Stack
15 Min Levels
Rebuys Allowed for 8 Levels
Add-On Allowed during the break (after level 8)
*Re-buys can be made at any point that you have 3,000 chips or less, so this means you can rebuy in the beginning to start with 6,000 chips.

How To Rebuy/Add-On:
As a way to only allow rebuys for players that earned them, we will be dispersing players 500 tokens after 9:00 AM on the day of the event for every additional seat you won, more than 2.   These tokens will be removed from your account, they will be removed after the tournament so you will need to use them or lose them.

Example:
If you have 8 Total Seats Won this season
You will be given 500 Tokens On Saturday after 9AM
8 Seats Won – 2 Seat Requirement = 6 Seats to use for a rebuy
6 x 500 Tokens Per Seat = 3,000 Tokens

Rebuy/Add-On opportunities:
– You can rebuy at the beginning of tournament or at any time you are at or below 3,000 chips
– You can only add-on for 3,000 chips during the break (after level 8)


GRAND PRIZE:

The Winner of this event will Win a “Bye” into Day 2 of the $200,000 National Championship with a Guaranteed Average Chipstack (600,000 chips).

  • This will allow the player to get past 95% of the field and instantly “in the money” during Day 2 with a 600,000 chip-stack (the expected field average).
  • Winner may also still use their earned $200K Seat to compete in Day 1A and/or re-enter for $235 to play in Day 1B for a larger stack.
    If player bags chips greater in value than the 600,000 average stack during any Day1, they will start Day 2 with the larger stack.
  • If there is a field of 1,000 players, you will only have to beat out 50 players for the lions share of the guaranteed $200,000 on the televised Final Table!
    You will also be guaranteed a minimum of $500 for your day 2 finish and more as you finish higher.

This prize and your seats are non-transferrable, have no cash value, and can only be used for the 2019 $200,000 National Championship.  Please do not play in the Masters Event (or in any of the weekly qualifiers for that matter) if you cannot make the tournament.   You would have nothing to gain and you would only be taking a prize from someone who plans to attend.   Use your tokens for other promotions, like the “High Roller” Tournaments.  Any masters seats/rebuys or championship seats that are not used for Vegas or the Masters Event will be expired and cannot be used for any future promotions or events.

Masters Tickets Expiration:
Players that won multiple seats and used those seats in either the East Coast Championship AND/OR the East Coast Masters Tournament will need to earn an additional seat for the Masters Tournament.  Meaning that players with a remaining balance of 2 or more Seats Won after the East Coast Championship will be invited to play in the next Bar Poker Open Masters Tournament.

Players that win additional BPO seats at Local League Events, can use the additional seats for entry in the Masters!
You will have to make sure your league enters your seat won into their admin panel.

  • Qualification Examples:
    • Player Wins 1 Seat June 17, 2018 – October 2019, who did not use the seat at the East Coast Championship, will only need to win 1 more seat during November 2018 – May 2019.
    • Player Wins 2 Seats June 17,  2018 – October 2019, who did not use a seat at the East Coast Championship, will be eligible for the 2019 Masters.
    • Player that Wins 2 Seats after the East Coast Championship, will be able to use the extra seat for the BPO Masters and future seats won would work as a “rebuy” or “add-on” during the Masters Event.

How would you of used a prior seat that you won?

  • If you participated in the $100,000 East Coast Championship, your seat would be deducted
  • If you participated in the East Coast Championship Masters, we would deduct a seat for your entry or any rebuys or add-ons that you used during the online tournament.

What if you don’t use a rebuy/add-on you earned?
 The tokens we used are only a way to limit who can and can’t add-on or rebuy.  You did not actually “earn” 500 tokens.  Any rebuys or add-ons you do not use as a player will be removed from your dashboard.  Additional seats and/or tokens are not usable for any other more seats into the championship or any other promotion.  Use them in the 2019 Masters Tournament, or lose them.

If you have any future questions regarding this tournament or the rules of this tournament, please email us at qualify@barpokeropen.com

We are already onto our 7th Super League Season!    The BPO Super League ranks all players from each league and gives HUGE benefits to  top players of the league based on ranking and # of “BPO Events” the league has hosted.   Top ranked players are invited to buy-into the upcoming championship and some are even invited to compete against other league’s top players for more than $7,000 in prizes in the Super League Championship!

Season Dates:
10/1/2018 – 5/5/2019

Super League Online Championship:
5/11/2019


Rankings Tiers and Benefits Explained:
The Super League gives added benefits to players that are consistently attending BPO Events and finishing in the Top 20% each night.  Every night that you are able to finish in the top 20% that night, you get Super League Points based on your finish.  Players are then ranked based on cumulative points for the season and player benefits are based on your ranking and number of BPO events your league has hosted.  Quite simply, the more events your league hosts, the more top players are given rewards and prizes!

The Super League Points Formula was built to reward players based on finish and participants.  These points and your ranking are all automatically calculated once your league posts accurate results for the event.  The formula is below:

Points = 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(10.25)]
n is the number of entrants
k is the place of finish (k=1 for the first-place finisher, and so on)


Rewards are all based on Tiers on the Super League Leaderboard:

Tier 3:
Every time your league hosts 4 games, a top ranked player is allowed to buy into the upcoming championship.  This season is for the Las Vegas National Championship in June 2019.  This means even if you didn’t win a seat, you will be invited to at least buy into the upcoming championship as a top ranked player for the current season.

Tier 2:
Every time your league host 10 games, a top ranked player wins a seat into the Super League Online Championship on Saturday, May 11, 2019.

Tier 1:
Every time your league hosts 40 games, a top ranked player wins a seat and a rebuy/add-on advantage in the Super League Online Championship!

Example:
League hosting 100 games

– Top 25 players on league leaderboard invited to Las Vegas National Championship (spot opening up every 4 events)
– Top 10 players on league leaderboard win seats into Super League Championship on May 11, 2019 (SLC) (spot opening up every 10 events)
– Top 2 players on league leaderboard win rebuy/add-on in Super League Championship (spot opening up every 40 events)

Why is the leaderboard based on Events?
We find this to be the fairest measure of inviting top performing players from each league.   Quite simply, a league that hosts 1,000 “BPO Games” a season should be able to invite proportionally more players into the special events vs. a league that hosts 50 games / season.

Accurate Results:
Sometimes a player can get a reward or not based on a cut-off of just 1 point, so it is imperative that your TD or League Owner submits results and attendance that are perfectly accurate.  If you feel there is something wrong with the result that game, please contact us.


Questions?
We are always available to answer emails via info@barpokeropen.com, or you can post your question here in the comments section below.

The Bar Poker Open Master’s Tournament is a brand new and exclusive tournament for those talented enough to win multiple seats online.  Once a player achieves more than 2 seats during the period of June 17th – October 1st, that 3rd seat becomes a “Master’s Ticket” and every Master’s Ticket won above and beyond that becomes a rebuy/add-on in this championship event.  We expect the field in this tournament to be less than 20 players.  The prize in this event, with an expected field of less than 20 players, is a “Bye” into Day 2 of the $100,000 East Coast Championship.  By winning this bye, you will already be “in the money” with an average stack of 250,000, and you will by-pass 90% of the field for the $100,000 Total Payout!

Masters Tournament for 2018 $100K East Coast Championship

Date:
Saturday, October 13th, 2017 11:30am (Eastern Time)

Cost for Entry:

  • O Token Cost (Invite only)
    Automatically added to invite list once you hit 3 won seats during the season!
  • Rebuys Allowed for each additional seat won, over 3
    (valid at any time when player has 3,000 or fewer chips)
  • Add-on is also allowed at the expense of each seat won
    (valid during Break after Level 8)

Tournament Format:
3,000 Starting Stack
12 Min Levels

How To Rebuy/Add-On:
We will be dispersing players 500 tokens after 9AM on the day of the event for every additional seat you won, more than 3.   These tokens will be removed from your account, if they are not used, and you will be credited back the “seats” you did not use.

Example:
If you have 8 Seats Won this season
You will be given 500 Tokens On Saturday after 9AM
8 Seats Won – 3 Seat Requirement = 5 Seats to use for a rebuy
500 Tokens Per Seat = 2,500 Tokens

GRAND PRIZE:
The Winner of this event will Win a “Bye” into Day 2 of the $100,000 East Coast Championship with an average chip stack (250,000 chips).

  • This will allow the player to get past 90% of the field and instantly “in the money” during Day 2.
  • Winner may still compete in Day 1A and/or Day 1B for a larger stack.
    If player bags chips greater in value than the 250,000 average stack during any Day1, they will start Day 2 with the larger stack.

This prize is non-transferrable, has no cash value, and can only be used for the $100,000 East Coast Championship on October 26 – 29th, 2018.  Please do not play in this event if you cannot make the tournament, you have nothing to gain and you would only be taking a prize from someone who plans to attend.

Masters Tickets Expiration:
Masters Tournament Invite earned before the East Coast Championship may be used for the East Coast Masters Tournament or saved for the Vegas National Championship Masters Tournament.

Masters Tickets earned after the East Coast Championship must be used for the Vegas National Championship Masters Tournament or they will expire.  With a full year season and easier qualification, we do expect the Vegas Master’s to have a larger turn-out than the ECC Masters.

Next Master’s Tournament Qualification
Players with a remaining balance of 2 or more Seats Won after the East Coast Championship will be invited to play in the next Bar Poker Open Masters Tournament.  The expected date of this tournament will be in May 2018 and we expect to have a larger tournament field of 40 – 60 players.

Players that win additional BPO seats at Local League Events, can use the additional seats for entry in the Masters!

  • Seat Use Examples and Scenarios: 
    • Player Wins 1 Seat June 2018 – October 2018, who did not use the seat at the East Coast Championship, will only need to win 1 more seat during October 2018 – May 2018 season.
    • Player Wins 2 Seats June 2018 – November 2017, who did not use either seat at the East Coast Championship, will be eligible for the 2018 Masters because your balance is “2”.
    • Player that Wins 2 Seats after the East Coast Championship, will be able to use the extra seat for the BPO Masters.
    • Player that wins 3 Seats and plays in the East Coast Championship Masters but does not go to the East Coast Championship will be eligible for Vegas Masters because your balance would be “2”.

Time flies when your having fun!  We are already onto our 6th Super League Season!    The BPO Super League ranks all players from each league and gives HUGE benefits to each leagues top players based on ranking and # of events the league has hosted.  Top ranked players are invited to buy-into the upcoming championship and some are even invited to compete against other league’s top players for more than $7,000 in prizes in the Super League Championship!

Season Dates:
4/30/2018 – 9/30/2018

Super League Online Championship:
10/6/2018


Rankings Tiers and Benefits Explained:
The Super League gives added benefits to players that are consistently attending BPO Events and finishing in the Top 20% each night.  Every night that you are able to finish in the top 20% that night, you get Super League Points based on your finish.  Players are then ranked based on cumulative points for the season and player benefits are based on your ranking and number of BPO events your league has hosted.  Quite simply, the more events your league hosts, the more top players are given rewards and prizes!

The Super League Points Formula was built to reward players based on finish and participants.  These points and your ranking are all automatically calculated once your league posts accurate results for the event.  The formula is below:

Points = 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(k)] * [1+log(20.25)]
n is the number of entrants
k is the place of finish (k=1 for the first-place finisher, and so on)


Rewards are all based on Tiers on the Super League Leaderboard:

Tier 1:
Every time your league hosts 4 games, a top ranked player is allowed to buy into the upcoming championship.  This season is for the East Coast Championship in the Fall of 2018.  This means even if you didn’t win a seat, you can at least buy into the upcoming championship as a top ranked player for the current season.

Tier 2:
Every time your league host 10 games, a top ranked player wins a seat into the Super League Online Championship on Saturday, October 6, 2018.

Tier 3:
Every time your league hosts 40 games, a top ranked player wins a seat and a rebuy/add-on advantage in the Super League Online Championship!

Example:
League hosting 100 games

– Top 25 players on league leaderboard invited to East Coast Championship (spot opening up every 4 events)
– Top 10 players on league leaderboard win seats into Super League Championship on October 6, 2018 (SLC) (spot opening up every 10 events)
– Top 2 players on league leaderboard win rebuy/add-on in Super League Championship (spot opening up every 40 events)

Why is the leaderboard based on Events?
We find this to be the fairest measure of inviting top performing players from each league.   Quite simply, a league that hosts 1,000 games a season should be able to invite proportionally more players into the special events vs. a league that hosts 50 games / season.

Accurate Results:
Sometimes a player can get a reward or not based on a cut-off of just 1 point, so it is imperative that your TD or League Owner submits results and attendance that are perfectly accurate.  If you feel there is something wrong with the result that game, please contact us.
