Team Bodog Members Finish in the Money at 2010 WSOP

Share this
After days of grueling play, the nine players that will be playing for the championship title at the World Series of Poker Main Event in a few months have been determined. The November Nine include: Italy’s Filippo Candio; Canada’s Jonathan Duhamel and Matthew Jarvis; and six U.S. players—Joseph Cheong, John Dolan, Michael Mizrachi, Cuong “Soi” Nguyen, John Racener, and Jason Senti. These nine players will compete for a total of $29,032,637 (plus interest accrued from July 20 until the tournament resumes in November), with payouts ranging from $8,944,138 for first place to $811,823 for ninth.

As you might expect, the nearly fifty-strong Team Bodog is a bit disappointed that their names aren’t included on the November Nine list, but are nonetheless extremely proud of their achievements at the 2010 World Series of Poker tables. Four of the team—Bodog Poker Pro Evelyn Ng and Bodog online players Eric Liu (draizen), Dennis Scott (dgs) and Greg Schaefer (gman07140) ended up in the money, and considering how relentlessly the field was narrowed down, their performances were nothing short of commendable.

Greg Schaefer was Team Bodog’s biggest money winner, making it to the middle of Day Six before finally hitting the rail. Schaefer went all-in with A-10 while his opponent Gabe Costner was holding A-K. The board of 7-J-4-4-9 gave Costner a pair of Fours with a King kicker, knocking Schaefer out of the game. But Schaefer walked away with more than $48,000 for his efforts.

But the biggest Bodog success story was that of Dennis Scott, a factory supervisor from Midland, Michigan. While Scott didn’t hit a huge payout, he did have one of the best returns on investment in the history of the game. Scott entered into a $1 satellite event in Bodog’s Main Event 2010 tournament series and found himself climbing to the top of the ladder. That single dollar earned him a trip to Vegas with Team Bodog and over $27,000 in prize money.

After cashing out, Scott said, “It’s been a very good time. Bodog has treated me very well. Vegas has been great, but I’m ready to go home now,” a feeling that anyone who has ever experienced the WSOP can sympathize with. This year’s Main Event prize pool was $68,798,600 and 747 savvy players cashed in. The payout for 747th place was a tidy $19,263.

Right now, next year’s WSOP seems like a long way off, but time will fly by and before you know it, they’ll be setting up the tables in Vegas once again for another round. It’s anyone’s guess who will return next year for revenge at the tables. But it’s a sure bet that Team Bodog will be proudly represented.

During the meantime, put your poker skills to the test against thousands of other players at the fastest growing poker community in the world. Bodog Poker averages more than 80 tournaments daily, giving you plenty of chances to play against the best of the best.
