Cheap Seat qualifiers running now; Four $12,000 World Series of Poker* Main Event prize packages guaranteed this Sunday, May 3.

Apr. 30, 2009 – The rush is on for online poker players looking to qualify for the 2009 WSOP* Main Event—poker’s richest and most prestigious tournament. Making qualifying cheaper and easier than ever before is Poker! The online poker powerhouse is running the simplest and most surefire qualifying tournament structure designed to suit every player’s budget and style, and this Sunday, May 3, regardless of how many players enter, will award four Main Event prize packages worth $12,000 in its Main Event Semifinal.

“The road to poker immortality just got easier,” says Bodog Poker Pro Justin Bonomo. “As past Bodog qualifiers can attest to, winning a seat to the World Series Main Event through Bodog is much more than a chance to play for millions. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Las Vegas in true Bodog style.”

Players have plenty of options—from Cheap Seat qualifiers to low stakes Sit & Gos—to win their way to Las Vegas and compete for the biggest prize in poker. For just $1, or 100 Bodog Poker Points (PTS), players can start down their path towards winning one of Bodog’s $12,000 Main Event prize packages awarded every Sunday in the Main Event Semifinal. This Sunday, May 3, at 4:35pm EST, four guaranteed packages are up for grabs, with numerous more being awarded throughout May and June.

Those players wanting to start further up the ladder can enter any one of the $27+$2 Main Event Quarterfinals that run daily at 9:00pm EST, or any of the twelve different Main Event Last Chance qualifiers held on the Sunday afternoon prior to the Semifinal for either $27+$2 or $54+$4.

Walking away from a Semifinal with one of Bodog’s coveted World Series prize packages means more than just earning a seat to the $10,000 buy-in Main Event. Winners will instantly become members of the tight-knit group of poker players that make up Team Bodog. On top of the $10,000 buy-in, those donning the black and red of Team Bodog will also receive $2,000 for travel to and accommodation in Las Vegas, a stylish Bodog gear bag worth $400+, and access to VIP events and player’s club evenings. Players that qualifying through will also be given the pro treatment as a dedicated team of handlers will be on-site to take care of their needs, allowing them to focus on what truly matters, their poker game.

Turning a few dollars into a few million is the dream of every online poker player that qualifies for the World Series Main Event. What caught fire in 2003 with Chris Moneymaker and his $2.5 million win continued last year with the excitement surrounding the November Nine final table and Peter Eastgate’s incredible $9 million payday. Members of Team Bodog took home more than $1.8 million at last year’s World Series, and with this year’s field expected to equal or exceed that of the previous year, Poker is the cheapest and easiest way to find yourself competing for a coveted gold bracelet.
