Bovada´s Black Diamond Poker Open Starts on Sunday

Posted on February 8th, 2013 by Todd Wilkins

Bovada Black Diamond Poker OpenBovada Poker´s second Black Diamond Poker Open Series begins this Sunday with the “Contender” round of tournaments prior to the “Champion” Series in March.

Bovada Poker has a reputation for doing things differently and, when it comes to hosting poker tournament series´, you can rely on this US facing poker room to come up with new ideas. So, whereas most online poker sites have their primary tournament series scheduled ahead of a series with mini buy-ins, Bovada Poker is doing things the other way around.

Be a Bovada Contender

The “Contender” round of tournaments which start this Sunday has much smaller buy-ins than the “Champion” series of events that are scheduled for March. Buy-ins start at just $3.30 for the forty-three tournaments in the “Contender” round of tournaments, which run until Sunday February 24 when a $30,000 guaranteed Main Event will be the climax of the series.

More than $150,000 is guaranteed in prizes for the “Contender” series and qualifiers and satellites are already running for most of the events from just $1.10. A super satellite is also scheduled for the Saturday prior to the Main Event which will guarantee 50 players a seat in the feature event and the chance to get their hands on a $5,000 first prize!

Be a Bovada Champion

The main Black Diamond Poker Open “Champion” series does not kick-off for until Sunday March 10th and has the same schedule of forty-three tournaments with mid to high buy-ins with over $700,000 in guaranteed prize pools. The climax of the “Champion” series is a $250,000 guaranteed Main Event which has a buy-in of $425.00 + $25.00.

For players with limited bankrolls, more than two thousand satellites and qualifiers are being hosted on the Bovada Poker web site – again starting from just $1.10 – which will enable those on a budget to compete for a chance to win a valuable prize. Full details of the satellites and qualifiers can be found in the Bovada Poker client under the “Special” tab in the tournaments lobby.

Take Advantage of a Double Bovada Poker Bonus

From today, and for the duration of the Bovada Black Diamond Poker Open, players making their first deposit on Bovada Poker will be able to take advantage of an exclusive Bovada Poker bonus. Instead of the regular 100% match bonus on deposits up to $1,000, readers of will receive a 200% match bonus on all deposits over $50.00.

This means that if you put $500.00 into your Bovada account as your first deposit, you will be eligible for a further $1,000 in Bovada Poker bonuses. This is a great deal, but hurry – this offer ends on March 24th.
