Zorro to Play at Bodog's APT Manila

Remember the legendary horse riding hero Zorro? Well he’s back and he will be making an appearance at the Bodog APT Philippines as well as the $100,000 grand final in Manila in January 2014! OK, so this is just a little bit of fun, a little trick being played on us all by those guys at Bodog. The Zorro in question will actually be an anonymous player that Bodog are sending to the events with a nice bounty on his, or possibly her head. It’s all about the Bodog Anonymous tables and the yearlong Anonymous series that culminates in the grand final in Manila early next year. At the time of writing Zorro was unavailable for questions but Bodog Poker Network President Jonas Odman had a few words, ““When we first introduced the Recreational Poker Model we were much ridiculed and so it is satisfying that virtually all major poker rooms have now changed direction and are seeking to improve the poker eco-system by introducing incentives to the all-important net depositing player. While I am not a fan of the Player Segregation Model unveiled by Party Poker recently there is no mistaking the reasoning behind it.” He adds that the Zorro costume is all a bit of fun but also to serve as a reminder that the Bodog Anonymous tables are around for players to use. Mr Odman also comments on the new network, “ The costume and bounty for our anonymous player at the upcoming APT is partly a bit of fun but it is also there to serve as reminder that we believe the Bodog Network is far and away the fairest place to play poker online. We are the only Network made in Asia with the emerging Asian player in mind and we are specifically optimised for sports betting sites who want access to a network but don’t want their players’ money diverted away to poker pros.” Bodog really is driving these facts home and love them or loathe them it appears that many rooms are taking Bodog’s lead with some sort of player segregation or anonymous aspect to the game. It’s also worth noting however that these tables are of course optional and regular tables are also available.
