Bodog to award WSOP seat in blogger tournament

Online poker bloggers have a shot at going to the World Series of Poker courtesy of Bodog Poker's latest promotion.

The poker site is putting on the Poker Blogger Tournament Series, which will give out a $12,000 prize package to send the winner to the World Series of Poker as part of Team Bodog in 2008.

The Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament Series is composed of 18 qualifying tournaments that will run weekly starting Tuesday, Feb. 5, to Tuesday, June 3. The top 30% of finishers in each qualifying tournament will earn points based on their finish, which will be used to rank players over the qualifying series.

At the end of the series, the top 18 players with the most points will play in the final tournament June 10 to try to win the $12,000 WSOP prize package.

The weekly tournaments have a $10+$1 buy-in, with the prize pool being distributed per Bodog's standard multi-table payout structure. In addition, the top five players each week will also win $109 tournament dollars to be used to buy into the weekly $100,000 Guaranteed Tournament.

The top five bubble players each week will get a second shot at the Blogger Tournament series with a free buy-in to the next week's tournament.

The Blogger Tournament final is free and only open to the top 18 point winners from the series. Prizes will be offered to the top five places.

  • Grand Prize: $12,000 WSOP* Prize Package with Team Bodog
  • 2nd place: T$540 to be used to buy-in to (2) World Series or Players Choice Semifinal
  • 3rd place: T$379 to be used to buy-in to (1) World Series or Players Choice Semifinal and (1) $100,000 Guaranteed Tournament
