With the November Nine earning their place in poker fame and fortune, the Rio card room is now slightly emptier, but there’s still news flowing in from the 2010 World Series of Poker.
US friendly Bodog Poker sent nearly fifty players to this year’s World Series of Poker Main Event and even though none of them made it to the Novemeber Nine, their stories are still the stuff of legend. Lead by Bodog Poker pros Amanda Musumeci and Evelyn Ng, this year’s Team Bodog included players that made their way up through the ranks in Bodog’s 2010 Series satellite tournaments and finals, players that proved their mettle in the online poker world, but would they be able to bring the thunder to the live tables in Las Vegas?
The answer was a resounding yes, with seven Team Bodog players in the squad ending up in the money, including one remarkable player that turned a one dollar in a satellite tournament into over $27,000 in Vegas! Dennis Scott, a factory supervisor from Midland, MI had never even thought about going to Vegas for the show of shows before, but in an offhand decision to spend $1 on a satellite tournament netted him a 27,000% profit! “It’s actually the first time I’ve ever even tried to play in it,” he said after collecting his winnings. “Actually, it’s my only tournament cash not online. I’ve played in one other tournament at a casino, but it was nothing like the WSOP.”
Check out the video below that shows some of the Team Bodog experience as it happened and see if you’ve got what it takes when you play online poker at Bodog.
