Josh Arieh takes on bloggers in Bodog Poker tournament today.

Bloggers will be sitting down at their computers this evening not to post their latest blog but to take each other on in a poker tournament at Bodog Poker. Joining them will also be Bodog pro Josh Arieh.

Josh Arieh will play the part of a bounty in the tournament, meaning that the player who takes him out will be awarded $100. However, Arieh is a tough tournament pro who could also go on to win the event himself and get an extra $100 to keep for himself on top of the first-place prize.

Arieh has more than $4 million in tournament winnings. He is well-known for his aggressive, unpredictable style of play, and it will be on display for bloggers to see in today's blogger tournament starting at 9:05 p.m. (EDT).

The tournament costs $10+$1 to participate. Bodog Poker will also be beefing up the prize pool by awarding the top five players in the tournament T$109 that can be used to buy in to Bodog's $100,000 Guaranteed Tournament, which takes place every Sunday at 4 p.m. (EDT).

The Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament Series began in early February and is composed of 18 qualifying tournaments that run every Tuesday. The series ends June 3.

The top 30% of finishers in each qualifying tournament will earn points based on their finish. Those points are used to rank players over the four months of qualifying, and when all is said and done, the top 18 players on the tournament leader board will play in a final tournament for a $12,000 World Series of poker prize package.

The final tournament will take place June 10.

For poker players who don't have a blog but would still like a shot at being a part of the Bodog Poker team for the 2008 WSOP Main Event, the poker site is hosting a number of online qualifiers for the WSOP.

Bodog Poker guarantees four WSOP seats will be awarded each week in March and April, and five each week in May and June.

The 2008 WSOP Main Event prize packages include the $10,000 buy-in for the Main Event plus $2,000 for travel expenses, Team Bodog gear for the trip, meeting the Bodog Girls and much more.
