Today is your chance to become the next Matt McCullough.

Looking for a way to while away some time today? Bodog has the answer: a Euro Main Event Semifinal that will offer up at least two prize packages to play in the 2008 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event.

The semifinal begins at 3:15 ET today and has a direct buy-in of $500+$40. Bodog Poker is guaranteeing at least two prize packages, each worth $24,000.

The prize packages include a seat in the WSOPE Main Event as well as roundtrip airfare to London, high-end car service to and from the airport, luxury hotel accommodations, Bodog player gear and apparel and spending money.

There isn't much time left either to win a seat to the WSOPE. The Main Event is scheduled to begin playing Sept. 27 and run through Oct. 2.

Last year the WSOPE Main Event drew 362 players, many of them well-established players from around the world, who were willing to put in the £10,000 buy-in for a shot at gold-bracelet glory.

The event didn't disappoint, as several pros went deep to earn some of the £3,676,990 prize pool. Names such as Jamie Gold, Ian Frazer, Patrik Antonius, Erick Lindgren, Marco Traniello, Annie Duke and Gus Hansen are littered throughout the money list.

However, it was 19-year-old online phenom Annette Obrestad who ended up taking the top spot for a £1 million payday. Better known to her online fans as Annette_15, Obrestad was catapulted into the live poker spotlight with her win.

Though he didn't get the win, there was a Bodog Poker player at the 2007 WSOPE Main Event who also made a big splash. Matt McCullough turned his seat won at Bodog Poker into a third-place finish, and also gained the title of last American standing in the Main Event.

Today another couple of players at Bodog Poker may be on their way to repeating that achievement.

Bodog Poker also offers qualifiers for other major live tournaments all over the world.
