Team Bodog In Full Force at WSOPE

The second annual World Series of Poker Europe kicks off in London today, and once again, Team Bodog is there in full force to take on the biggest names in poker as they compete for millions in cash prizes and the final championship bracelet of the year.

Leading the charge for Team Bodog will be Bodog pros David Williams, Justin Bonomo and Jean-Robert Bellande, and “The Last American Standing” at the inaugural 2007 World Series in Europe, Matt McCullough. The 27-year-old amateur player from Cherry Hill, N.J. made history last year after he qualified for the main event on Bodog and went on to finish third to earn $766,674 and the distinction of being the final American in the tournament.

Also representing Team Bodog in London is Yevgeniy Timoshenko, a 20-year-old poker ace from the U.S. of Ukrainian descent. Timoshenko is coming off a spectacular win last month at the largest poker tournament in Asia, the 2008 APT Macau, where he banked $500,000.

“Bodog is sending a great group of players across the Atlantic this year, and we’re all hungry to bring home a bracelet for Bodog,” said Bodog poker pro and WSOP-bracelet winner David Williams. “I’m especially excited to have Matt and Yevgeniy joining us in London. Both guys have scored big this past year, and I’ll be looking for them as well as the rest of Team Bodog to go deep in London.”

The 2008 World Series of Poker Europe will feature four bracelet tournaments and culminate with the £10,000 World Championship No-Limit Hold’em Main Event, which will run over five days beginning Sept. 27. For the first time, ESPN will broadcast eight hours of original coverage in the U.S. and distribute the tournament to television networks worldwide.

At the World Series in London, Team Bodog hopes to continue the momentum from this summer’s series in Las Vegas, where the team walked away with more than $1.6 million in prize money and a bracelet. The tally from Las Vegas puts Team Bodog pros’ combined career winnings at nearly $8.5 million. Williams, who racked up four cashes at the World Series in Las Vegas this summer, alone has more than $6.1 million in tournament winnings.
