Bodog Music and Vans Warped Tour rock the tables during annual poker tournament.

What do you get when you mix Bodog Entertainment with The Warped Tour? A killer punk-rock poker tournament! In the hottest after-hours party to hit the Warped Tour all summer, Bodog brought the many personalities of Warped together for its second annual winner-takes-all Texas Hold'Em Tournament at the Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ on August 3.

In a poker paradise that included everything from custom poker tables to an open bar to beautiful Bodog Girls, over 80 players showed off their poker prowess. Musicians from a number of bands on the Warped Tour played, including members of Bad Religion, Cute Is What We Aim For, Killswitch Engage and Meg & Dia and Bodog Music's own The Vincent Black Shadow.

In the end, however, only Vans founder Steve Van Doren and Allura's Sean Grant were left standing. As the two went head to head with one hand to go, both went all-in for the run. The final table was surrounded by a mob of crazed tournament-goers who raised their voices and glasses in tandem, bringing forth a rumble that rivaled the concert-goers earlier in the day.

Sean Grant reigned supreme as the king of the Bodog Texas Hold'Em Warped Tour Poker Tournament '07. Grant took home the grand prize of an iPhone, a custom Bodog poker table with the "Lucky 13" Warped Tour '07 insignia, and a Bodog poker chip set. While Van Doren said goodbye to the table, he said hello to a brand new pair of Bose Quiet 2 Noise Canceling Headphones and a coveted chip set.

Bodog Entertainment proved once again that when it comes to bringing music and poker together, no one does it better than Bodog!
