Bodog Drop Tournament Guarantees


In an exclusive so sensational that it just reduced its stockpile of nukes by 1/3rd, Melted Felt can today bring you news of fury online - among people who were going to sign up for a Bodog account tomorrow.

Yes, dear Melted Felt readers - the site which is famous for being 100% Canadian-free recently dropped many of the juicy guaranteed prize pools associated with its scheduled poker tournaments. In one fell swoop going from the site famous for having 'tournament overlays that nobody could really be bothered to sign-up for', to 'the site that used to have tournament overlays that nobody could really be bothered to sign-up for'.

What the big B could not have anticipated was the FURY, VENOM, HATE, SCORN and people upping their post count by typing '+1' which has poured onto poker forums all over the interweb - from people who were just about to sign up for Bodog, tomorrow.

We caught up with Dave Schuman 19, from CA who was beside himself with anger at the way in which Bodog has insulted poker players with this removal of tourney guarantees. "I'm not going to sign-up for an account now, no-way, never, no-no-no", began Dave, "I was going to sign-up tomorrow too, and spend a fortune in rake, not any more - ohhhh nooooo".

Dave started to go purple with rage as he explained further. "I'm not the only one ya know - on my forum alone there are 100's of people who were going to sign-up tomorrow who will not do so now, worldwide there must be 1000's or even 10s of 1000's who would have signed up any day now but now have no intention anymore..." voice getting louder and more high pitched as he continued. "I've personally been about to sign-up tomorrow for over 18 months now, and this is how they treat me!!!, fuck you Bodog, those tournament guarantees were so fantastic and this is what you do to one of your most loyal non-players??!? I personally know people who have been meaning to sign-up tomorrow ever since you started the poker room you heartless fuckers!!".

We put an imaginary call in to Bodog to find out just why they have insulted so many people who were about to sign-up tomorrow for so many years, however the only person qualified to comment was too busy playing in an FTOPS satellite to answer our call.

Got this letter from Claire, my new account manager at Bodog... was going to write back explaining that we were having a laugh at people on forums who were going to sign-up 'tomorrow' and not Bodog... but then again if this ladies reading comprehension is that bad to start with then why bother... just post the e-mail here instead!

Hi Mark

How are you?

I am your new account manager and was looking over your websites. I came across your new post on http://www.meltedfelt.com/ which seems a little harsh to us. It also states: "We put a call in to Bodog to find out just why they
have insulted so many people who were about to sign-up tomorrow for so many years, however the only person qualified to comment was too busy playing in an FTOPS satellite to answer our call.". Can you please let me know who you tried to contact about this so I can make sure you received a satisfactory response.

You also have a link to this site where Bodog is shown as one of the best poker sites: htxtp://XXXXXXXXXX

I would appreciate it if we could work to rectify this post so we can move forward to help you bring players to us and also start you earning money from promoting us.

Kind regards

Claire

Dear Mr. Mark *********

Hehe, guess what I received this morning about my player account at Bodog.... looks like Claire has revealed her true level in life (or maybe it was just an uncanny coincidence for a 2 year old account!).

Will keep you posted!

Wow talk about going overboard IMO. Has Claire bothered to even check out the rest of your site.Hope it works out for you Mark

Mark said...

Well, my player account is back after 2 mails and 1 phone call... but just discovered that my password no longer works for my affiliate account!

In true MF fashion I win 2 cakes.

More bemused than worried really, no point starting a war about nothing too important after all.

Will keep you all posted if there are any developments!

Mark
