Technical Issues at Bodog Poker Resolved

Players at Bodog Poker were in for a bad surprise on Sunday when they went to play in the weekly $100,000 dollar guaranteed tournament.  The surprise was it was canceled due to technical issues. According to online poker forums users began experiencing issues at Bodog Poker around 5pm EST.  The $100,000 dollar Guaranteed runs every Sunday at 4pm EST and costs $162 dollars to buyin.
There were 469 players in the tournament creating an overlay of almost $30,000 dollars.  But this tourney started having problems shortly after the tourney got uner way. Just before 5pm a player called customer support at Bodog Poker and heard that they were experiencing technical difficulties and that they were working on the problem.
Some players said that they got messages saying the tourney was cancelled because there weren’t enough entries and that the Bodog $100,000 Guarantee was going to be rescheduled.  When players tried to login to Bodog Poker they received the following message:
“Bodog is down for regularly scheduled maintenance and/or software upgrades. We expect to be back up shortly.”
Around two to two and a half hours after players started reporting problems a representative from Bodog Poker said,   “Tonight, Sunday, October 25th, Bodog Poker had to cancel all tournaments because many players were experiencing disconnection problems. Players will be compensated according to Bodog Poker rules, i.e. players will be paid a percentage of the prize pool based on their stack size when the tournament was canceled.”
We all know that sometimes sites go down, servers get overloaded, etc.  but when you have a large chip stack it’s still frustrating and feels unfair.  Bodog is also going to invite all the affected players to a $10,000 dollar freeroll on Sunday.
Players logging into today will see a small software upgrade and the $100,000 dollar Guarantee has been reschedules for Sunday, November 1st.  This is also the same day the Bodog Poker Opens so expect a busy weekend at Bodog Poker.
Bodog Poker offers all new players a welcome bonus on their first deposit.  To claim your bonus just download the software, create an account and make your first deposit.
