Bodog Poker Diamond Poker Open

February 20, 2012

Bodog Poker will be hosting a special Diamond Poker Open event starting this March. Satellites are already running to the events that will be played during the Diamond Poker Open at Bodog Poker and we recommend trying to win seats now. The full schedule has been released and there will be a total of 52 tournaments running during the Diamond Poker Open. Bodog Poker will be running over 2000 satellites leading up to the event and during the event, so 1000’s of players will be able to qualify for cheap.

Bodog Diamond Poker Open Kick-Off Event

The Diamond Poker Open is going to start on March 4th 2012 with a Kick-Off Event. The Kick-Off tournament is going to have $20K guaranteed in the prize pool although there isn’t going to be an overlay. Tons of players are waiting to play in the Bodog DPO and I expect the playing field to be big for the opening event on March 4th at 5:00PM ET. Mark your calendars now and try winning a seat into the opening event by playing in one of the many Diamond Poker Open Satellites.

Bodog Diamond Poker Open Contender Series

Bodog Poker has broken the Diamond Poker Open down into two segments with the 1st being the Contender Series. Bodog will be hosting the Contender Series from March 5th – March 18th 2012. The tournaments will have low – medium stake buy-ins and there will be over $100K guaranteed during the Contender Series. The Contender Series will have two events played each day and the Main Event will be played on March 18th at 5:00PM ET ($25K GTD Prize Pool).

Bodog Diamond Poker Open Championship Series

As soon as the Contenders Series is over the Championship Series will begin. The Championship Series will run from March 19th – April 1st 2012. Most of the tournaments during the Championship Series will have high buy-ins, but the prize pools will also be much bigger. There is going to be over $600K guaranteed in the Diamond Poker Open Championship Series events including $50K GTD in the Main Event prize pool, which will be hosted on April 1st 2012 at 4:00PM ET.

The player that wins the Championship Series Main Event will also win an amazing $5000 Championship Watch. Bodog Poker has done a great job setting up the Diamond Poker Open and I think the series is going to be awesome. I like the fact that Bodog is giving away 1000’s of tickets to the events through satellites tournaments this month and next month. You can buy-in to the events directly at Bodog Poker although it’s much less expensive if you win tickets to the events you want to play in.

The satellite tournaments will start at only $1.10 and will give you the chance to win seats into any of the events. You can also play in higher priced satellite tournaments to increase your odds of winning a seat through the satellite. The Diamond Poker Open is going to be great and Bodog Poker has guaranteed to giveaway a minimum $750K during the tournament series that Bodog will be hosting throughout March and April.
