Bodog is Super Bowl Sunday place to be

David Williams

For something to do while watching the big game, and for those who aren't into American football, Bodog Poker is hosting two tournaments worthy of the Super Bowl title.

The first of the two gets the green light today. This special Flight Club Semifinal sports a $125+$10 buy-in, with one LAPT Punta Del Este package awarded for every 48 entries (one guaranteed).

The LAPT package, worth $6,000, includes:

  • $3,700 buy-in to the LAPT Punta del Este main event
  • $2,300 cash for travel and expenses

Here's all the information on Saturday's tournament:

  • Name:  Special Flight Club Semifinal
  • Date:  Saturday, Jan. 31 at 4 p.m. ET
  • Buy-in:  $125+$10
  • Prizes: 1 player for every 48 entries will win a $6,000 Bodog Flight Club Prize Package to the LAPT Event in Punta Del Este, Uruguay, Mar. 18-20
  • Starting Chips:  3,000
  • Levels: 15 minutes

Super Bowl Sunday's the big day. Starting at the same time as the big game, Bodog Poker is launching its Super Bowl Special tournament. This tournament is a $100+$9 buy-in, with $20,000 added to the total prize pool by Bodog.

Not only is the rake slightly cheaper than average (9% instead of 10%), but the $20,000 added to the prize pool gives additional value to every player who signs up. The Super Bowl Special is set to replace the regular $100,000 guarantee.

Details on Sunday's tournament include:

  • Name:  Super Bowl Special - $20k Added
  • Date:  Sunday, Feb. 1 at 4 p.m. ET
  • Buy-in:  $100+$9
  • Bonus:  Bodog will add $20,000 to the prize pool
  • Starting Chips:  2,500
  • Levels:  15 minutes

It's not every day you'll find a tournament with overlay on a major site. And as many poker players know, any tournament that fits that description is a great one to be in.

$20,000 added for a $100 buy-in tournament is a substantial overlay. Essentially, when you're dealt your first hand, it's as if 200 players have already been eliminated. This "free money" greatly increases each player's EV.
