Ante up!

The summer season may be over, but things are just beginning to heat up on the poker front.

Tomorrow, the Borgata Poker Open 2008 kicks off a 16-day schedule with a $300-$50 No-Limit Texas Hold'Em tourney.

By the time the final hand is played on Sept. 18, a minimum of $5 million will have been won by poker players who'll be coming to the Big B from around the nation and the world.

The centerpiece of the BPO is the five-day World Poker Tour event that begins Sept. 14 and concludes with the final table of the $10,000 buy-in contest, which will be taped for future broadcast on the GSN cable channel (which means you'll get to see some of the game's top pros in action if you come down to watch).
