Today is Tuesday, which means it's time for two of the neated blogger tourneys out there. Of course, I'm sure you're already well familier with the juiced up Bodog Blogger Tourney Series:
If you haven't yet heard of it, you obviously aren't reading this blog, or are living under a rock. Here's the highlights"
The Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament Series is composed of a series of 18 qualifying tournaments that run weekly beginning Tuesday, February 5th, 2008 to Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008. The top 30% of finishers in each qualifying tournament will earn points based on their finish. These points will be used to rank players over 4 months of qualifying. At the end of the qualifying series, the top 18 players on the Tournament Leader Board will play in the Final Tournament on Tuesday, June 10th, 2008 with the first place finisher winning a $12,000 WSOP* prize package!
Buy-in: $10 + $1
Prize Pool will be distributed as per Bodog's standard multi-table payout table. In addition, the top 5 players each week will also win T$109 to be used to buy-in to the $100,000 Guaranteed Tournament held every Sunday at 4:00 PM ET. The top 5 bubble players each week will win a free buy-in to next week's Weekly Tournament. (T$11 will be credited to these players' Bodog account within 24 hours after the completion of the tournament)
Buy-in: $0 + $0 (must finish in the Top 18 on the TLB to be invited)
Grand Prize: $12,000 WSOP* Prize Package with Team Bodog
2nd place: T$540 to be used to buy-in to (2) World Series or Players Choice Semifinal

4th: T$270 to be used to buy-in to (1) World Series or Players Choice Semifinal
5th: T$109 to be used to buy-in to (1) $100,000 Guaranteed Tournament
So how can I play? That's easy:
How To Register
To register for the Bodog Poker Blogger Tournament Series, poker bloggers must first go to http://www.bodoglife.com/promotions/poker/blogger-tournament/ and sign in with their Bodog account information in the upper right hand corner. Once this is completed, they then must click on "REGISTER NOW" to register themselves into the tournament series. Bloggers will each have to do this once in order to play in the series. Once this is done, they then need to find the "Online Poker Blogger Tournament" in the software and register as they normally would each and every week.
Tonight is also my favorite non No Limit Hold'Em blogger tournament, King of Donk's Blogger Skillz Series over at FullTilt:
Doublestacks and Knockout Bounties? How can you miss this one? Tonight, we're playing Limit Stud Hi/Low, and the chips will fly like there's no tomorrow.
Two doublestack bloggerments, and I'm gonna need the huge stacks in both. Why, do you ask? Because I'm strictly dead money for the first hour or so in both. (And thank goodness for Bodog's structure!) Today is Thoooper Tuesday, and Colorado is caucasing, which means the House of Mondo is caucasing. As this is the first presidential election year where I've ever lived in a caucus state, it actually means a lot to see the process for the first time.
The Good Doctor Mondo is caucusing, and I'm there to watch. As a registered independent, no tickie, no votie for me, but I'm trying to nudge the good half to try to become a county delegate. She's a big Clinton supporter, and stridency gets you far at the county level, I suppose. I'm hoping I have the chance to vote for Obama in November, but it's important to me to not tie myself to a party, where my vote will be taken for granted.
The pertinent thing here is, I've got dead money walking for probably the first 75 minutes of the Bodonkey, and the first 45 minutes or so of the Skillz game, so ya'll should really register and get some of my free money. I actually thought of not signing up for the Skillz, since it is about 8% of my BR in an ante game where I'll miss 40 hands, but fuck it, I'm two for two cashing in this bloggerment, and I will obviously quadruple up within four hands on my return when I luckbox Bayne's normal pockets. Here's to hoping I'm only anted to about 2500 by the time I return...
