Bodog Poker Open IV Takes Players From Contenders to Champions
Week-long tournament series gives players chance to go from $1 to poker stardom as the next Bodog Poker Open Champion
It’s time to get ready to rumble for a shot at poker stardom as Bodog announced today details for the Bodog Poker Open IV. The fourth installment of the popular tournament series takes place Nov. 1 – 8, 2009, and this time it offers two parallel, week-long series: the “Contender Series,” consisting of lower-stakes buy-ins, and the higher-stakes “Championship Series,” with $60,000 in added prize money and guaranteed media exposure for the champion.
“With the Bodog Poker Open IV, Bodog is giving online poker players of all levels a chance to strike it rich and gain major exposure as the next Bodog Poker Open Champion,” says Bodog Poker Pro David Williams. “It takes a great deal of patience and skill to run deep in this tournament, and any poker player who can take down the Championship Event deserves not only the huge cash prize, but also the recognition that comes along with it.”
The Bodog Poker Open IV Championship Series kicks off Sunday, Nov. 1 at 4pm EST with the first of seven events. The series culminates on Sunday, Nov. 8 at 4pm EST with the Championship Event, featuring $25,000 in added prize money. The last player standing will not only walk away with the top cash prize and the title of Bodog Poker Open IV Champion, but will also be prominently featured in an international poker publication and on Bodog.com.
Buy-ins for the seven events of the Championship Series range from $50+$5 (rebuy) to $470+$30 for the Championship Event. Bodog is adding additional prize money to all events, giving players exceptional value for their tournament dollars.
The Bodog Poker Open IV Contender Series runs during the same time period and features all the action of the Championship Series but with smaller buy-ins. The winner of each Contender Series tournament receives a seat to the Bodog Poker Open IV Championship Event (T$500), while the remaining eight final table players get a seat to the Contender Series Championship Event (T$50) on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 5pm EST. Bodog.com is adding $2,500 in cash to the prize pool of the Contender Series Championship Event.
“With the chance to rise through the ranks, from contender to Bodog Poker Open IV Champion, the Bodog Poker Open IV promises to be one of the biggest and best poker tournament series in Bodog’s 15-year history,” says Bodog Poker Pro David Williams.
