Online gambling pro wins Wynn Classic
One of the largest online entertainment / gambling sites, Bodoglife.com, saw a member of its pro team win the Wynn Classic. Josh Arieh took down the $1,000 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha with Re-buys event on Thursday, 13th March 2008.
Arieh is a previous two-time WSOP winner and he showed some flair and style as he took down a field of 57 players and a tough final table to net a tasty $59,364.
“This kind of performance is what the poker world has come to expect from a two-time WSOP bracelet winner like Josh,” says Morris Mohawk Gaming Group CEO, Alwyn Morris. “We are extremely proud of his victory, and we know that this is just a taste of what 2008 holds in store for Team Bodog at the poker tables.”
Pot Limit Omaha, a speciality of Arieh’s, is considered the hardest and most skilled form of Poker. He won his second WSOP bracelet in the game when he won the $2,000 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha event at the 2005 WSOP, and in 2000, he finished second in the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event at the WSOP.
In addition, Arieh’s season has been rather successful with a third in the first event of the inaugural Bodog Poker Open last week, and a second place at the main event of the 2007 WSOP Circuit New Orleans in December.
At the moment, Bodog Poker is offering entry to the 2008 WSOP Main Event for four members, with at least four $12,000 Main Event Prize Packages weekly through its ‘Main Event Semi-final’ tournaments. Each Main Event Semi-final will see at least one $12,000 Main Event Prize Package awarded.
