In an effort to cater to an ever-growing contingent, Bodog Poker has established several perks on its poker site that are directed at and inclusive of bloggers. In addition to a tournament series for bloggers, Bodog has a leader board, live updates during the events, and a tournament host site.
The Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament Series runs every Tuesday night at 9:05pm EST and has been attracting new players each week. The entire series consists of 18 qualifying tournaments that began on February 5th and will continue until June 3rd, 2008. The top 30% of finishers in each tournament earn points based on their finishes, and they are then ranked as the four months of tournaments continues. In the end, the top 18 on the leader board will play in the series finale on Tuesday, June 10th. The grand prize of the final event is a $12,000 WSOP prize package that includes a seat into the $10k buy-in main event and accommodations.
The Bodog Blogger Tournament Leader Board is available throughout the course of the series and provides point totals for every player that played in any of the qualifying tournaments. It is available upon tournament registration and allows players to track their progress.
Another feature added during the tournament series is the Bodog Blogger Tournament Host Site that provides bloggers with news and weekly updates, including tournament results for each qualifying event, announcements of special promotions and guest players, poker news and gossip, and game tips and advice. In addition, live tournament recaps, updates, and commentary can be found on the Buddy Dank Poker Radio show.
The weekly tournaments provide an opportunity to win cash prizes for a mere $10 + $1 buy-in. In addition to winning a portion of the prize pool, the five top finishers each week win $109 in tournament chips to buy-in to the Sunday $100,000 guaranteed tournament. And the top five bubble players each week win a free buy-in to the next week’s tournament in the way of $11 in tournament chips credited to the players’ accounts.
