Bodog CEO To Give €1K To Player That Beats Him!

14th April, 2010

The CEO of the Bodog poker network, Patrik Selin, has offered €1,000 cash to the person who manages to knock him out of the PokerStars European Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo at the end of the month on 25th-30th April.

“I think it’s a shame more senior management of poker rooms do not play at these events as it is the best way to find out what players want,” he said. “Everybody at a live event is passionate about the game and happy to talk about their likes and dislikes which is invaluable to anybody running a poker room.

“Now I have raised the stakes and will be putting €1,000 straight into to the hand of the person who knocks me out which should make the banter even more fun in Monaco.”

The London based Swede has been working in the online poker industry since 2000.

He was a successful president and CEO of OnGame, playing a large role in the €500m sale of the network to Bwin during 2006.

He has played at many events which include the EPT, World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker.

Selin finished in the money in the 2006 WSOP and has reached two televised final tables in Europe, winning the Ritz Club Live Tournament during 2006 and came second to Peter Gould in the 2007 UK Open Main Event.
