On Sunday night at 8pm and 11pm on FSN, the third televised event of WPT Season X begins with the airing of WPT Borgata Poker Open: Part 1. Much like the last two televised events, Part 1 will again feature playdown of the first five days of this $3,500 buy-in tournament, including interviews, hands and behind-the-scenes features all from the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ.

Día 1A de Abierto de Póquer WPT Borgata draws 460 players, many of who will be seen again on Day 1B thanks to the format of this event that allows players who bust on Day 1A to buy in again on Day 1B. That second starting day saw more than 90 tables of poker action, puting the total number of entries (including re-entries) at 1,313, which shattered the previous entry record for WPT Borgata Poker Open.

Through the playdown days the cameras keep tabs on several players who are making splashes as the tournament progresses. Among those featured are David Williams, who finished second to Daniel Negreanu at this event (featured in above video), WPT Borgata Poker Open defending champ Dwyte Pilgrim, WPT Legends of Poker Season X champion Will Failla and Season X Ones to Watch ébano kenney and María Ho, who is shown putting a player at her table, deservedly, in his place.

The chipleaders of Day 1A and Day 1B both receive $5,000 bonuses for leading their respective days so the action ramps up as the day progresses as evidenced by Williams and fellow poker pro Jeff Madsen who were in a race to the top of the leaderboard. We’ll let you watch the show to see who wins the contest and walked with the $5,000 bonus.

As player after player hits the rail, the episode finally reaches the final six who make up the final table. For this event, we welcome Ali Nejad to the announcing booth beside Mike Sexton as Vince Van Patten was unable to stick around Atlantic City for the final table.

Away from the felt, viewers will see Failla and Van Patten spar on the racquetball court (turns out Failla is something of a racquetball maestro), last longer bets between players, interviews with players and a very special 5 Preguntas with producer extraordinaire and hip-hop mogul Irv Gotti.

All of this is in store for viewers this Sunday night, so make sure to tune in to, or set your DVRs for, FSN at 8pm and 11pm to catch all of the action.
