Bodog Poker Open III Set for Late April

bodog logo

The Bodog Poker Open III will kick off in a matter of days, and this year’s edition will include a few new wrinkles. The 26 tournaments that will make up BPO III are being divided into three separate series, each with a different buy-in tier, giving players even more choices this year. The schedule features ten elite, high-stakes “championship” events, eight “mid-stakes” tourneys, and eight low buy-in “mini-bounty” tourneys designed for players of more modest bankrolls. For the championship series, Bodog has decided to forego the traditional guarantees found with events elsewhere, and will instead donate a generous $75,000 to the championship prize pool, with $30,000 earmarked for the BPO III main event alone. The total prize pool for BPO III promises to top $280,000.

The series gets underway on April 26th, continuing through to the championship main event on May 3rd. Last year’s Bodog Poker Open II drew a total of 3,539 runners in 14 events, awarding well over $700,000 in prize money overall, with the winner of the main event taking home $75,000. As with the two previous Bodog Poker Opens, the schedule is wall-to-wall hold'em
– including no-limit, pot-limit, fixed-limit, turbo, and short-handed. The inexpensive bounty tournaments will give players a chance to test their poker chops against Bodog pros Evelyn Ng, Jean-Robert Bellande, David Williams and Justin Bonomo.
