Bodog is proud to host its second Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament Series open to poker bloggers worldwide. Play in the Qualifying Tournaments twice a week to challenge other poker bloggers and live to blog about it.
Qualifying Tournaments allow you to win bonuses and earn points to work your way up the Tournament Leader Board (TLB). The top players as ranked by the TLB will qualify for a spot in the Final Tournament of Champions (TOC) and play to win a share of $3,000.00.
How it Works:
This Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament series comprises 15 Qualifying Tournaments that run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting Tuesday, October 28th, 2008 and finish on Tuesday, December 16th, 2008. The top 30% of finishers in each qualifying tournament earns points based on their finish. Each player's top 8 point scores will be aggregated to comprise a total point value that will be used to rank participants on the TLB. At the end of qualifying, all players in the top 15 percentile (15%) as ranked on the TLB will gain entry into the Final TOC to be played on Thursday, December 18th, 2008.
If you get a late start or run your Kings into Aces, there is a last chance to make it into the final! Play in 3 or more qualifying tournaments and you will receive an invitation to play in the last chance tournament on Wednesday, December 17th, 2008. The top 3 finishers of this tournament will win a seat in the TOC!

Tournament Leader Board
The Tournament Leader Board will be available throughout the course of the Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament Series. It provides point totals for every player that has played in qualifying tournaments. The top 30% of players in each tournament will receive points based on their finish. Each player's top 8 point scores will be summed and players will be sorted highest to lowest point total on the TLB. The top 15% of players on the Tournament Leader Board at the end of the 15 qualifying tournaments will play in the Final TOC.
The formula used to calculate points for the Leader Board standings after each event is as follows:
Points = 10 * (SQRT(N)/SQRT(R)) * (SQRT(SQRT(B))+0.2)
- N = Number of players entered in the tournament.
- R = Finish Rank of the player for the tournament.
- B = Buy-in of the tournament.
