There is a prestigious title that any online player has a good shot at 52 times a year—Bodog Poker’s King of the Felt. If you can hold the title for a 10-week run, you have a shot at an estimated $12,000 Package to the World Series of Poker 2011 Main Event - where you could be King of the poker world for a full year just like Jonathan Duhamel.
On April 29, Bodog Poker crowned its first ever King of the Felt, “Ddsromero.” After an intense heads-up battle with “Brutus31” lasting nearly an hour, it all came down to one hand. “Ddsromero’s” A-J held up against “Brutus31’s” A-8, winning him a $1,000 prize and a spot on the all-time High Score Board. But the glory only lasts for as long as the King can defend it, and after five consecutive wins, “Ddsromero” was taken down by “Paxrebel,” who wore the crown for one week before being toppled by “Crownroyal84.”
And so it goes, each reiging King will have to do his best to defend the title against a newcomer, drawn at random each week, in heads-up action. The longer a King reigns and defends their crown, the bigger their potential payouts get. Being crowned King of the Felt pays $1,000, defending the crown each subsequent week pays an additional $1,000, defending the crown for five weeks straight pays $2,500, and a 10-week streak earns the reigning King a shot at a 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event prize package worth an estimated $12,000.
Earning a shot at Bodog Poker’s King of the Felt Crown is simple. Just make the money in three Sit n Go tournaments in one week and earn one entry into the weekly draw. Cash in six Sit n Go’s and earn two entries into the draw as well as entry into a $1,000 Freeroll. Better still, cash in nine or more Sit n Go’s in a single week and earn three entries into the draw, entry into a $1,000 Freeroll plus a $500 Freeroll entry.
The weekly King of the Felt draw takes place every Monday, and any player to have cashed in at least three Sit n Go’s the previous week will be automatically entered into the draw once for every entry earned. Then on Thursday at 8:45PM ET, the reigning King and the winner of the draw do battle in a heads-up match to determine whether or not the King will continue to reign, or a new King will be crowned.
