Complete event details have now been released for the upcoming Bodog Poker Open II, scheduled for September 28 – October 5, 2008. This second BPO series at Bodog Poker offers 14 events over the series' eight-day run and will include a combined prize-pool guarantee of $650,000 — $300,000 of which will be the minimum available in the October 4, $470+30 Main Event. Several of the events also include money added in to the prize pool by Bodog.
The upcoming Bodog Poker Open II represents a significant expansion over March's inaugural series, which included six events. The BPO I Main Event included a $25,000 kick-in from Bodog and built to a $305,120 prize purse, the richest in the site's history. Shawn "phatcat" Luman won that tourney, collecting $76,280 for the effort.
The upcoming series also includes an added twist in the form of bounties on several well-known Bodog pros. Six of the events will be designated as "bounty" tourneys, where Bodog-sponsored players Jean-Robert Bellande, Evelyn Ng, David Williams and Justin Bonomo will participate. Knocking out any of these pros brings the fortunate player achieving the feat $109 in tournament credits, which can be used in nightly BPO II Main Event satellites.
