As the weather cools down, Bodog Poker tournament action is heating up for the fall season with the Bodog Poker Open V (BPO V). The other four Bodog Poker Opens were a huge success and the BPO V is expected to be the best one yet, with over $300,000 in cash and prizes. Between now and October 3, Bodog will be awarding hundreds of seats into the preliminary and Main Events of this exciting tournament series, and you can satellite your way in for as little as $1!
Like those that preceded it, the BPO V will include two series of tournaments—the Championship Series and the Contender Series—so all Bodog players can play in an event that best suits their bankroll. Buy-ins for preliminary events in the Contender Series range from $5 + $1 to $25 + $2.50, with a Main Event buy-in of $46 + $4. Championship Series buy-ins range from $30 + $3(re-buy) to $200 + $15 for preliminary events, and $470 + $30 for the Main Event.
Both series will kick off on September 26 and run to October 3. Both consist of seven events and end with a Main Event and guaranteed prize pools of $15,000 and $200,000. Bodog will also be adding on huge layovers to the events, between $1,500 and $20,000 extra to each tournament depending on the event that’s being played. The Championship Main Event winner will also receive a commemorative Corum Championship watch valued at over $5,000!
Several paths lead to the championship event. You can buy-in directly, buy-in to a series event, or work your way up through satellites. Event winners in both series get to show their stuff in the championship event, and the remaining 8 final tablers in Contender Series events win an automatic seat into the Contender Main Event.
There will be one re-buy event for each tournament series. These events offer unlimited re-buys before the first beak as well as one add-on during the first break. This means that for the first hour of the event, if you have less than your starting stack, you can re-buy your starting chip amount for the cost of the buy-in only. During the first tournament break, you can buy double your starting chip amount for the cost of the tournament buy-in only, regardless of the amount of chips you have.
The Bodog Poker Open V will be getting underway in just a couple of weeks, and you won't want to miss it. Last year’s Championship attracted a field of more than 250 players, generating a $120,790 prizepool to which Bodog added $25,000 for a total purse of $145,790. Some of those who took part were Bodog Poker Pros Evelyn Ng and David Williams, as well as online poker pros “nevertilt22,” “UFpokerStar,” and “ari,” who finished the event in third place. The BPO IV Championship event was won by “MrElPaso,” who walked away with $36,447.50 for first-place and a guaranteed spread in an international poker publication.
