BREAKING: Bally's closing/ Wild Wild West opening this week!

Announcement by Scooter Posted

Dan Morelli, director of poker for the Caesars properties, announced that tournaments at Bally's have all been canceled in the wake of the new 64-table room at Wild Wild West opening this week.

The last official day for Bally's will be Wednesday. Wild Wild West will have its soft opening on Thursday, then the grand opening celebration on Friday. Tournaments will premier on Sunday, and all of them will have guaranteed prize pools (3 per day from Sunday-Thursday, 2 per day on Friday and Saturday).


  1. Better be good ones. They're basically calling Borgata out. We'll see how that goes....

  2. @TheTopGun From Sun-Thurs,they have a $1K guaranteed turbo at 3 ($40), a $3k guarantee at 11am and a $4k guarantee at 7pm $75), and four $25K guarantees on Friday and Saturday, 11am and 7pm ($200). All have a $5 dealer add-on for and extra 5k chips. Simple schedule, and they're guaranteeing $140K a week in prize pools. I like the aggressiveness.

  3. I hope it works out just for the sake of competition. Love Borgata but having some viable alternatives is always good for the players.

  4. I will also say Dan Morelli is a pretty good guy who knows what he's doing. He ran the Showboat for a long time and it was able to stay competitive. The room was good too so if he's getting a ton of tables like that, it's a good thing.
