October 21, 2008 (Atlanta, US) Bluff Magazine, in conjunction with Players Investment Company (PICClub.com), is proud to announce the schedule for the Bluff Poker Tour (BPT), a series of online poker tournament modeled after the World Poker Tour, for 2008-09.
The BPT is a series of online poker tournaments giving players the opportunity to not only win cash but also win their share of over $10,000 worth of great prizes from BPT sponsors along the way. Some of the online poker rooms on the schedule for 2008-09 include DoylesRoom.com, PitbullPoker.com, TruePoker.com and ReeferPoker.com.
“The Bluff Poker Tour is a great opportunity for us to share time at the felt with our readers,” said Eric Morris, publisher of Bluff Magazine. “Our previous incarnations of the BPT had a great response from our readership and we think the 2008-09 BPT will be the best yet.”
To be eligible to compete in the BPT players need to sign up for a PICClub.com account, which will allow them to deposit to or withdraw from any of the participating rooms. Bluff Magazine chose PICClub.com as a sponsor as it is quickly becoming the easiest way for players to deposit or withdraw from online poker rooms.
“PICClub.com is pleased to be a part of the BPT. As we’ve grown to become the best way for a player to deposit funds and the best way for a poker room to acquire new players the BPT was a natural fit,” said Chuck Kidd, CEO of PICClub.com. “We look forward to helping the tour be bigger and better than ever before. The PIC Pro Team is ready to go and they will be at every stop.”
Once the players create their account they will then be eligible to play in any of the BPT events between October 30, 2008 and May 7, 2009. Buy-in for each BPT event is $10 + $1 with points being awarded for both finishing position and participation. Any player who wins a BPT event, eliminates a PICClub.com Pro from any BPT event or finishes in the top 10% of the overall points leaderboard will earn entry to the Tournament of Champions on May 10, 2009. The winner of the TOC will then face the overall points leader heads-up for the title of Bluff Poker Tour Champion.
HoldemRadio.com, the worlds #1 poker entertainment radio station and the official online voice of PICClub, will be broadcasting the BPT live each Thursday night with a pre-game broadcast featuring the PIC Pro Team members starting at 8:00pm ET.
