2020 Vegas National Championship – Dates and Hotel Information

The ink is dried, and are officially back at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino for our 5th Year, for what will be the absolute largest, the most rewarding, and the most exciting Bar Poker Open in history!

We BEAT the guarantee last year by a huge margin and the prize pool increased by a massive $85,000 because of your attendance… to reach $285,000!!    We want all our seat winners and invited players to join us on June 7 – 12, 2020, so we crush last year’s $285,000 Payout… yet again!  

**Save The Dates**

Arrivals and Registration: 

Saturday, June 6th, 2019
3PM – 6PM Special early registration time for Golden Badge Holders coming in early and first choice in starting flight

Sunday, June 7th, 2019
3PM – 6PM – Early registration time for Golden Badge Holders and first choice in starting flight
8PM – 11PM – Registration time for all other qualifiers

Mandatory Championship Dates Will Be:
(Mon 6/8 – Thu 6/11)

With huge crowd, we have to split up Day 1A into two starting flights and we do not know which flight will sell out first.  DO NOT try to register on the same day expecting to be able to play as space is limited and one flight will absolutely sell out.  This makes it necessary for you to be there a day early with the ability to play in either flight.  Based on last year, Golden Badge Players all have their choice in flight before a flight sold out.

Recommended Arrival:
Sunday, June 7th, 2020 prior to 8PM

Recommended Departure:
Friday, June 12th, 2020


Golden Nugget is the absolute the crown jewel property of downtown, and it will be the headquarters of all the action every single day.  Upgrade to the Rush Tower or the Gold Tower and you will have a very short walk to the Tournament Room.

Our players patronizing the property is just as important for BPO as it is at any of the local venues hosting poker every night.  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.   This in the long term allows us to utilize more of what Golden Nugget can offer, by continuing to create better experiences for everyone and negotiate the lowest possible hotel rates with them.

With that in mind, there will also be significantly MORE benefits for those that book a room using the booking link and/or using our code “GSBPO20” through our Golden Badge Program.

Players staying on property will get the Golden Badge will get:

  • Stay on the nicest property in Downtown Vegas in their recently renovated rooms 
  • Special privileges and event access at BPO (will be clarified in the coming months)
  • 2 Exclusive VIP Line Championship Registration times for super fast registration
    Day Early on Saturday and Sunday Afternoon 
  • Free drinks at the player party
  • No Resort Fees (saves you $38/night against all other websites/rates)
  • Free Championship Card Protector
    All this as a BIG Thank You from us and our host venue! 

You must use the code “GSBPO20” or the link below to qualify.  You cannot book through any other casino or third party 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.

Rooms rates are great, 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, you can always cancel the reservation or have us move over the reservation to our account.

This would normally cost you an additional $38 per night and there is no way around them booking on any other travel site!  On a 5 nights stay, the BPO rate saves you nearly $190 in room fees alone and another $100 against the cheapest published rates… that is nearly $300 you save supporting the BPO and Golden Nugget!!

Room Rates:
Sun (6/7) – Thur (6/11)
$72 Per Night.. no resort fees for Premium Carson King (while they last)

Feel free to come early and beat the crowds to register, or stay later…
Weekend Room Rates will be $109 (Fri & Sat) while rooms last.
AND AGAIN … WITHOUT any resort fee (normally $38 with taxes every night)

For same room on Hotels.com, it is currently $69 + $36.16 daily resort fee resort fee… $95.16/night + Taxes.

*when booking through our link, you might see mention of a resort fee, but it is not the case and it will not be shown at checkout.  The opportunity is so rare that hotel can’t take that out as it’s hard coded into all reservations.  Resort fees will not be charged as long as you use that code “GSBPO20” or book through our link below.

To Book Your Stay Today:
