Bodog Online Poker Room Continues to Take Hit

Bodog Poker

Bodog Poker, once among the more prominent of the online poker rooms, continues to struggle during the month of September.

The site had been hovering around the number 10 spot prior to this summer but is now barely clinging on to the number 14 position of top online poker rooms (see PokerSiteScout.com). The Entraction Network is likely to take over the 14th spot by October according to Gambling911.com analysts.

Doyles Room passed Bodog this month as part of the Microgaming Network. Doyles is that company's marquee brand and by far its most heavily promoted. Doyles has the potential to carry Microgaming well into the Top 10 in the event they should sign Olympic gold medal swimmer, Michael Phelps. Gambling911.com was the first to report that Doyle Brunson was recently teaching Phelps the "ins and outs" of professional poker. Sources within that company have revealed there stands a good chance of signing Phelps.

Bodog is looking to make a splash at this week's second annual World Series of Poker Europe. Bodog's celebrity poker players include a man who has starred in granny porn, a Survivor loser and last year's APT champion Yevgeniy Timoshenko, whose name is more difficult to pronounce than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

This summer, Bodog had millions of dollars seized by the US Government as part of an extensive investigation into payment processors.
