London (PRWEB) December 12, 2007
Think you've got what it takes to win the Scandinavian Open? Europe's poker elite will be taking to the tables in Copenhagen for the European Poker Tour, and you could be one of four people sent there by Bodog.
Bodog is offering four lucky winners the chance to compete at the Scandinavian Open held at the Casino Copenhagen in Denmark. The event was won earlier this year by Team Bodog's Magnus Petersson from Stockholm, who was playing in his first EPT tournament and beat the favourite, ElkY, heads up to win the €550,000 ($800,000+) pot.
Qualifiers have just kicked off, and players are being offered the chance to win a seat at the EPT Scandinavian Open for as little as $1 USD. Four semi-final winners will receive a $10k buy-in for the EPT and an additional $2k USD for travel and accommodation.
"Bodog's presence in the U.K. grows bigger by the day and offering up tickets to an EPT event is just another way in which we hope to further cement our position in the U.K." said Calvin Ayre, Founder of Bodog Entertainment. "Poker is a lifestyle, and this is another chance for Bodog's European players to get a real taste of the highlife. We'll be taking Bodog players to Europe's oldest kingdom to compete with the elite of European poker, and we're confident that they'll match the success of our previous buy-in winners."
This is a real chance for a Bodog player to become a high roller. Earlier this year, Bodog WSOPE qualifier Matt McCullough finished third in the Inaugural WSOP Europe Main Event, taking home £381,910 ($550,000+). He also knocked out 11 time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth and Scandinavian Gus Hansen in the process.
For a chance to win a seat to the EPT Scandinavian Open, players must register at poker.bodoglife.com and play in tournaments titled "EPT-Scandinavian" under the "Daily" and "Special" tabs of the Bodog poker software. Qualifiers run daily and semi-final tournaments will run every second week starting Sunday, Dec. 16 at 8:15 p.m. GMT.
