BetMGM has announced a new online poker series for its US players this November which will be hosted by American poker pro Darren Elias. “The End Boss Poker Series” will run on the BetMGM platform in New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania from November 23-28. The series features seven events with combined guarantees of more than $750,000. The series will be held separately in each state but will feature the same events.

End Boss Poker Series

The schedule features buy-ins of between $150 and $1,060, with various formats available, including 8-Max NLH, 8-Max PLO, 8-Max Progressive Knockout Bounty, Freezeout, 6-Max NLH, and 8-Max NLH. Players will compete in one tournament each day on BetMGM and the site is running online qualifiers and satellites where players can win series tickets for as low as $5.
Those outside of New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania will not be permitted to join in on the action as the series is exclusive to players physically located in the three states.

Main Event Guarantees $150K

The End Boss Poker Series will culminate in the Main Event which has a buy-in of $1,060 and offers $150,000 in guaranteed prize money. Satellites to the Main Event are already running on BetMGM, giving players the chance to win a seat into the big event for a more affordable price. Up to 50 players in each state will win tickets into the tournament.

Darren Elias To Host                  

Elias currently holds the record for most WPT titles with four, earning the “end boss” status. He won his first WPT title at the Borgata Poker Open in 2014. In the same year, he also won at WPT Caribbean. The other two titles came in 2017 and 2018 at the Fallsview Poker Classic and Bobby Baldwin Classic.
Back in September, the 34-year-old was announced as the newest ambassador of the partypoker US Network under which three sites operate – BetMGM Poker, Borgata Poker, and partypoker. Among the first commitments under his new role was promoting and participating in the WPT Online Borgata Poker Open which took place in New Jersey in September.
Elias was then allowed to get involved in The End Boss Series which aims to cater to players of all levels, recreational and competitive players alike. BetMGM Director of Poker Luke Staudenmaier said Elias was directly involved in the development of the series. According to him, working closely with the 34-year-old would help them reach their targets for the upcoming festival.

Elias Will Join Main Event in NJ

Players in NJ will get the chance to compete with Darren Elias, as the four-time WPT winner has confirmed he will take part in the $150K GTD Main Event. To make things more exciting, the player who knocks out Elias will enjoy a 3-day, 2-night stay at the Borgata in Atlantic City for free.
In addition to that, the Main Event winner will also earn a seat into a special New Year Knockout Tournament, courtesy of BetMGM. All series participants will be invited to a December freeroll which will give away tickets into the same tournament.
