Meet a Bodog fighter - on the poker felt

Calvin Ayre founder Calvin Ayre.

Get in the ring with a Bodog fighter next month and the only potential bruising you'd suffer will be to your pride.

The site is launching the Bodog Fight Challenge Poker Tournament Series Aug. 9 - an event that will pit brain against brawn on the virtual felt until the promotion wraps Jan. 17, 2008.

Sign up at Bodog Poker to challenge the site's roster of fighters each month, earn enough leaderboard points and make the final tournament to with the series prize package valued at $5,000.

There will be six qualifying tournaments running monthly starting in August. The top 30% of the playing field in each event will earn points based on their finishing place. The points will then be used to rank players over the months of qualifying tournaments.

At the end of the qualifying stage, the top 30% of players with points on the tournament leaderboard - excluding Bodog fighters and trainers - will play in the final tournament Jan. 21.

The first-place winner of that event takes home a $5,000 prize package that includes a trip for two to a Bodog fight or an event sponsored by the site, not to mention plenty of Bodog swag. Second place earns a plasma TV, third receives a custom Bodog Poker table and fourth- through fifth-place entrants win boxing gloves autographed by Matt Lindland and poker chip set.

For winning one of the monthly qualifying tournaments, Bodog Poker will also hook its players up with prizes in addition to entrance into the final tournament. First receives a pair of autographed boxing gloves, second earns a Bodog Poker chip set, third place gets a Bodog Fight swag bad and fourth- to fifth-places receives $29 in tournament credits.

The tournament leaderboard will be available for the duration of the Bodog Fight Challenge Tournament Series. Players can find their point totals and those of their rivals for each of qualifying events.
