It is a sad reality of how poker has been marketed over the years that online tournaments are seen as a playground for the seasoned poker player and, therefore, unattractive to those playing for fun. Bodog’s Golden Spade Poker Open (GSPO) plans to change all that and show casual players how much fun playing a tourney can be. More advanced players will be catered for with their own higher-staking Championship Series.
The GSPO, along with all tables on the Bodog Poker Network, is the only place where players can enjoy poker without the threat of their own hand stats being used against them: With Bodog you play anonymously which stops poker pros who pay for data on how you play via your username.
The GSPO series will run across from September 9th to November 3rd. It will consist of two series targeted at the two types of player – the low stakes Contender Series and the high stakes Championship Series. Both series will feature a Kickoff event, 48 side events, a Main event, and a Second Chance event. Both series offer a variation of different tournament types with 3 or 4 daily events for two weeks, with 51 events in total. Events run 3 times per day, with at least one tournament per day set at an Asian friendly 10 am Eastern Time.
The Contender Series events has a total of $250,000 in guaranteed prize pools and the Championship Series has a total of $1,250,000 in guaranteed prize pools. The Championship series will feature a $300,000 guaranteed prize pool for the Main Event. The Main Event Champion will receive at least $58,500.
