Bodog Announces Sunday $200,000 Guarantee Tourney

What's an online poker site to do in trying times? How about taking its largest weekly tournament, and doubling the size of the guarantee? That's right: Despite the fact that Bodog promotes occasional overlays and often goes out of its way to create them, beginning this Sunday, Bodog will replace its normal $100,000 with an upgraded $200K event. The same buy-in, $100+9, remains in place.

Here is the KAP Bodog review

So what's the deal with this? Well, now, that's hard to say. There is other big news afoot concerning Bodog, but Bodog has never taken a backseat to any site when it comes to luring in prospective pokerists with a big chunk o' green. Bodog is also running extra satellites for entry into the $200K, including 1-in-10-qualifying, 400-player-point events, providing a possible path to get into the thing for free. Bodog's points-entry tourney options had been a bit sparse of late, so this is as an added oppportunity.

We can't really say what's next for Bodog, other than to note it's a good place to be this Sunday.
