An Incredible grand prize was announced by Bodoglife, with the main event awarding $300,000 guaranteed. Total cash for the eight day tournament will be more than $650,000, over the course of the weeklong Texas hold em tournament. The Bodog Texas Hold em tournament will begin Sunday, September 28th and continues until Sunday, October 5th. The well-known sportsbetting website will also feature six “Bounty” eliminatories, where the participants can win $109 in Texas Hold em credits for each Team Bodog poker player they knock out of the poker event. The biggest poker celebs will be taking on all rivals in the poker tournament.
Team Bodog star, Justin Bonomo, is definitely psyched about the Texas Hold em championship. Over the course of his poker playing career, the 23 year old has won around $1.4 million. He says that if you considered that the first poker tournament was great, you will definitely be astounded with this year’s poker contest and the prize money involved. He also challenges anyone that has the courage to eliminate him from the poker tournament to come forward.
The Kick off Bounty Tournament will be the first poker game in the contest on Sunday. Any poker player is able to buy-In directly into this, and any of the other poker games with cash. Or another alternative is to win their way into the events through the satellites which are being played every night during the Texas Hold em contest week. There will be six bounty eliminatories and seven “Championship Events”, which have higher buy-ins and deeper stacks.
Bodog’s event will have thirteen contests which will lead up to the main tournament on Sunday, October 5 at 4:00 p.m. E.S.T. This is the grand prize event with a guaranteed $300,000 in prize money, regardless of the number of poker players in the contest. All the poker challengers who want to enter the main event will have to shell out $500 for the buy-in and in return will be given 10,000 in poker chips.
