This is my favorite time of year! Not just because of warm weather and longer days either. It is WSOP qualifying time at most every online poker room. But when it all boils down, the place I like to test my poker skills and try to win the coveted free trip to compete in the largest and most prestigious poker event, the World Series Main Event, there is no better choice than Bodog Poker!
Ok, maybe I am playing the favorite but when you look at how you are treated once you are playing with Team Bodog, no one else compares. At least that is how I see it. Sure other rooms will give you your buy in and some spending cash, but when you qualify to play the WSOP with Bodog you get much more! Have a look at what you get when you go to Vegas with Team Bodog::
- $10,000 USD buy-in to the Main Event
- $2,000 USD travel and spending money
- Invitation to a Bodog social in Vegas
- Bodog poker swag bag
- Dedicated assistant on the ground in Vegas
And if 2010 is anything like the years before, those that went thanks to Bodog where treated to a whole lot more than what they list above. Ask anyone who went. Another super reason to qualify online with Bodog Poker is you will have smaller fields to battle to make it to the prizes! Why fight through over 10,000 players for endless hours when you can improve your chances of winning with a smaller field? After all, when you go to the Main Event, you are going to have plenty of hours at the felt.
Have a look at the World Series qualifiers here and chose your own course to Poker Stardom! You can start out as low as $1 in the "Cheap Seats" or just buy in direct to the final qualifier for just $500.

“I’ve proudly worn the red and black of Bodog.com Poker since signing on with them in 2005, and I can say from years of firsthand experience that there is no better way to experience the WSOP* than as a member of Team Bodog,” says Bodog.com Poker Pro Evelyn Ng. “Most rooms will get you to Vegas and buy you into the Main Event, but that’s about it. With Bodog you’ll get your travel, accommodations and World Series Main Event buy-in covered, as well as some spending cash, loads of Bodog swag, a dedicated Team Bodog player handler to ensure you’re always well taken care of, and an invitation to the exclusive annual Bodog.com Poker Players & Pros Social – which has proven to be a uniquely amazing and memorable experience each and every year.”
On April 25, Bodog.com Poker held its first Main Event Satellite of the year where four players – Andrew “Longhorn_99” S., Tay “Huestertay” N., Matt “farmslicer7” F. and Nandit “Riyan” M. – earned $12,000 World Series Main Event prize packages. Those four players got especially lucky as the first Main Event Satellite had a more than $10,000 overlay. On Sunday, May 2 at 4:35pm ET Bodog.com Poker will run its second Main Event Satellite, where an even bigger overlay is expected, giving players huge value for their buy-in buck as the satellite will put another 10 Guaranteed World Series Main Event seats up for grabs.
