Bodog Poker is once again offering online poker players the opportunity to become jet-setting world travelers with the announcement of Amsterdam, Holland, as the newest destination for the Bodog Flight Club promotion. As the site of the Master Classics of Poker and its €6,200 buy-in Lido International Dutch Open championship event at the Holland Casino, this classic European gem beckons to poker players of all stripes as one of the world’s most beautiful, historic and poker-friendly cities.
The Lido International Dutch Open has become one of the staple events on the European poker circuit, drawing in some of the biggest names in poker. Last year that list included Freddy Deeb, Surinder Sunar, Sorel “imper1um” Mizzi, Rolf Slotboom and Danny Ryan. For winning the 2008 event, Danish poker player Jan Sorensen beat out a field of 335 entrants to take home the €623,100 ($890k) first-place prize.
To get started on their path toward poker riches and the chance to live the Bodog lifestyle in Amsterdam, Bodog Poker is offering qualifiers for the Lido International Dutch Open for as little as $1 or T$100 every day. For those wanting to get started a little closer to the goal there are qualifiers running at differing buy-in levels and tournament types all the way up to the $270 buy-in Bodog Flight Club Semifinal. One player for every 48 entries in this Semifinal will win a $12,000 Prize Package to the 2009 Lido International Dutch Open.
The tournament runs from November 10-13, 2009, and the prize package includes the € 6,000 + € 200 buy-in (approx. $8,800 USD) as well as $3,200 for travel and accommodation expenses. As a member of Team Bodog, winners of the package will also receive a Bodog swag bag as well as articles written about their progress, so that friends and family can follow their results at home.
