The second season of the Blogger Poker Tour is set to begin. During the first season, we sent 1 player to the WSOP Main Event. This year, the blogger poker tour will be sending not one, but two bloggers to the Aussie Millions! The second season of the BPT looks to be a seven event season and will be utilizing leaderboard points, as opposed to last season's format of final tables.


Of course, what would a poker tour of this nature be without prizes, right? For the seven preliminary events, the payout is as follows:

1st - $125
2nd - $100
3rd - $75
4th - $55
5th - $45
6th - $30
7th - $25
8th - $20
9th - $15
10th - $10

Additionally, knock the host from the tourney and win a $60 satellite entry!

The top 20 in leaderboard points will qualify for the Blogger Poker Tour season two Grand Final.
