Oh, yeah, I got the invitation, too, and if you're reading this, you're also invited. From my contact at Bodog marketing:
Bodog is pleased to announce it’s first ever Poker Blogger Tournament with added prize money courtesy of Bodog.
As a poker blogger, I am delighted to extend this invitation to you to play in this tournament, taking place starting on August 28, 2007.
Bodog is adding a total of $125 in bonus money to the tournament. If you are one of the last 5 players to be eliminated prior to being paid out by the standard payout structure, you will get your buy-in returned by way of a $10 bonus. If you finish 2nd in the tournament you will receive a $25 bonus. And if you finish first, Bodog will give you a $50 bonus.
This is a limited invitation-only tournament so the field will be comprised only of other bloggers and their readers. It’s Bodog’s way of saying thank you for acknowledging your contribution to the great game of poker.
The tournament will run weekly on Tuesday evenings and will require a password for entry that all invited bloggers can promote within their community.
