 Black Diamond Poker Open is Back at Bodog

The popularity of the 2012 Black Diamond Poker Open (BDPO) meant it was an easy decision for Bodog Poker Network to bring it back and make it even more accessible to recreational players. Traditionally, online tournaments are seen as the domain of the seasoned pro but the BDPO is different. The BDPO is designed specifically with new players in mind but also includes a Series for the more advanced as well. The Black Diamond Poker Open is being launched to give ALL types of player the taste of a tournament but without the threat of their own hand stats being used against them.

Bodog Poker Network is the first network made in Asia for the Asian market and its anonymous tables guarantee that recreational players enjoy a better experience than on other sites whose players can use data-mining sites to buy information to give them the edge over those just playing for fun.

The BDPO is available to all operators within the network and includes a total prize pool of $850,000.
