(Atlanta, US) Bluff Magazine, in conjunction with Players Investment Company (PICClub.com), is proud to announce the schedule for the Bluff Poker Tour (BPT), a series of online poker tournament modeled after the World Poker Tour, for 2008-09.
The BPT is a series of online poker tournaments giving players the opportunity to not only win cash but also win their share of over $10,000 worth of great prizes from BPT sponsors along the way. Some of the online poker rooms on the schedule for 2008-09 include DoylesRoom.com, PitbullPoker.com, TruePoker.com and ReeferPoker.com.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Bluff Poker Tour is a great opportunity for us to share time at the felt with our readers,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Eric Morris, publisher of Bluff Magazine. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our previous incarnations of the BPT had a great response from our readership and we think the 2008-09 BPT will be the best yet.Ã¢â‚¬Â
To be eligible to compete in the BPT players need to sign up for a PICClub.com account, which will allow them to deposit to or withdraw from any of the participating rooms. Bluff Magazine chose PICClub.com as a sponsor as it is quickly becoming the easiest way for players to deposit or withdraw from online poker rooms.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“PICClub.com is pleased to be a part of the BPT. As weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve grown to become the best way for a player to deposit funds and the best way for a poker room to acquire new players the BPT was a natural fit,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Chuck Kidd, CEO of PICClub.com. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We look forward to helping the tour be bigger and better than ever before. The PIC Pro Team is ready to go and they will be at every stop.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Once the players create their account they will then be eligible to play in any of the BPT events between October 30, 2008 and May 7, 2009. Buy-in for each BPT event is $10 + $1 with points being awarded for both finishing position and participation. Any player who wins a BPT event, eliminates a PICClub.com Pro from any BPT event or finishes in the top 10% of the overall points leaderboard will earn entry to the Tournament of Champions on May 10, 2009. The winner of the TOC will then face the overall points leader heads-up for the title of Bluff Poker Tour Champion.
HoldemRadio.com, the worlds #1 poker entertainment radio station and the official online voice of PICClub, will be broadcasting the BPT live each Thursday night with a pre-game broadcast featuring the PIC Pro Team members starting at 8:00pm ET.
