|The opportunity to play alongside some of the best in the world and compete for the $10 million first prize at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) is a dream for all poker players. This year, Bodog.com is pushing for the record number of participants at the WSOP by guaranteeing 40 seats to the main event every single weekend.|
Bodog.com players who qualify for the Main Event this year will be accorded a prize package that includes a $10,000 tournament buy-in, $2,500 in travel expenses, access to the WSOP VIP Lounge and $1,000 worth of Bodog gear.
Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bodog.com, said, 'We want to ensure that our players are given every single opportunity to compete against the poker greats, and by having a new qualifier every 20 minutes during the weekends, we are well on our way to achieving this.'
The success of Bodog.com is highlighted by the dramatic rise in entrants since last years' event. A year ago, Bodog.com guaranteed its online poker players over 70 seats at the WSOP but this year has already succeeded in qualifying over 10 times that amount of players for preliminary and main WSOP events.
