Some of you out there may have heard about Bodog Poker’s most recent tournament in the $250,000 Guaranteed that happened on August 11th. It was the largest online poker tournament in Bodog history and saw 816 players take part in it. The results were even better than Bodog expected as the 816 participants combined to make the total prize pool $296,000 which exceeded the guaranteed mark by $46,000! The winner in Kill_Bill took home the largest chunk of that money in $56,600.
Well Bodog isn’t one to rest on its laurels as, just a couple of days after their biggest tournament ever, they’ve announced that they are going to top the $250,000 Guaranteed with the Bodog Poker Open II. The BPO II will guarantee a prize pool of $300,000 – a full $50,000 more than the 250K tourney – and will take place on October 5th at 4 p.m. EST.
To get into the biggest Bodog tournament ever, one will first need to get Bodog Poker. It’s best to use the POKERWORKS bonus code when downloading Bodog Poker so that one will not only be eligible for the Bodog Poker Open II but also get the 110% deposit bonus up to $500.
After signing up for Bodog, one can actually buy directly into the Bodog Poker Open II Main Event for $470 + $30. Now this might be a hefty price for many players out there so the good thing is that Bodog will be running plenty of qualifiers and satellites for the event starting right now. Some of the satellites are so easy to get into that all one needs to do is spend 50 of their Bodog Player Points and they’re in. Other buy-ins offered will be as low as $4.
These qualifiers and satellites are really easy for people to find since all one has to do is go to the Bodog Poker lobby and click on the “Scheduled Tournaments” tab. After this has been accomplished, one needs only look for the various BPO satellites and qualifiers that are offered here. They can also find the tab for the direct buy-in to the BPO Main Event here too.
If March’s Bodog Poker Open is any indication of things to come, the sequel promises to be a great tournament. March’s BPO saw phatcat take first place and win a nice sum of money in $76,280. This year should see the top prize climb even higher since the event is expected to be so big.
