The big ballin’ high stakes style of Vegas and the World Series of Poker may not appeal to players of all budgets and skill levels. Luckily Bodog Poker has come up with a fine alternative for up and coming lower stakes players, including the opportunity to get in on the action at the 2010 World Series of Poker. Bodog’s “Mini Poker Series” consists of 13 $10+1 events running on consecutive days from July 4th-16th, 2009.
The series will boast a leaderboard with the top 30% in each tournament earning points towards qualifying for the semi-final on July 22nd. There are two ways of qualifying for the semi-final. All players who play seven events during the series will automatically qualify, while 11th-50th on the leaderboard will also be invited to play regardless of the number of tournaments they enter. The top ten players during the series will automatically qualify for the final, where they will be joined by the top 18 in the semi-finals to play-off for a 2010 World Series of Poker package on July 24th.
