Wild Wednesday Is Here: $230K Guaranteed
It’s finally here: The Wild Wednesday tournament festival has landed at Bodog Poker. We’ve loaded up today’s schedule with 13 special tournaments, each one featuring a guaranteed minimum prize pool at the end of the rainbow. You can buy in for as low as $5.50, or you can go all in and take a shot at the $215 Main Event. We’ve got short stacks and big stacks, extended levels and Hyper-Turbos – we’ve even got a Pot-Limit Omaha tournament coming up soon.
Each of these Wild Wednesday events will test your poker skills in different ways. You can enter all of them if you like; you can play up to 20 tournament tables at the same time. Or you can pick and choose based on what you like and how you play poker. Here’s a look at what’s on the menu (all times Eastern).
Wild Wednesday kicks off at 3:17 PM sharp with a $22 no-limit Hold’em tournament that gives you 10,000 chips to play with, and a $10,000 guaranteed purse. With deep stacks like this, you can afford to be patient – consider it a warm-up for the rest of the day. More tournaments are coming every hour after that, including our special $55 PLO event at 6:17 PM; this one also has a $10,000 guarantee, and the levels are extra-long, so you’ll get more bang for your buck.
Once you’ve had a chance to grab some dinner, Wild Wednesday gets even wilder with tournaments running every half-hour. This is the heart of the batting order, featuring the two most important events of the day: the $38.50 Mini Main Event at 7:47 PM, followed by the $215 Main Event at 8:17 PM. These major tournaments have the biggest guaranteed prize pools of the entire festival, with $30,000 up for grabs in the Mini Main Event, and a hefty $75,000 in the Main Event. If that $215 buy-in is too rich for your bankroll, try winning your seat through one of the many daily qualifiers running at Bodog Poker.
It might be getting dark outside, but Wild Wednesday isn’t done yet. It’s time to break out the extra-fun NLHE variants, starting with the big $162 Knockout tournament at 9:47 PM and another $30,000 in guaranteed cash money. Heads-up specialists can try the $33 HU event at 10:17 PM, but be forewarned: no late registration is allowed. There’s no time to waste, because the last two Wild Wednesday tournaments are the $5.50 Turbo and the $60 Hyper-Turbo. The blinds go up really quickly in these events, so you won’t have to pull an all-nighter to claim those prizes at the end, but you also get to start with extra-deep stacks for even more poker excitement. So let’s get wild already; enjoy the day, and good luck at the tables.
