The Black Diamond Poker Open, happening currently on Bovada, has been a huge success up to this point. There are a total of 52 events in this tournament series and everything wraps up with the main event this Sunday. This is the first year for this tournament series so it is no surprise that hundreds and hundreds of players are grinding it out to be the first winner.The Main Event kicks off on Sunday but there is no need to worry because you still have a few days to qualify or buy-in. If you are not able to, or do not want to afford the $450 buy-in you still have a chance to qualify for just a fraction of that cost. On Saturday, Bovada will be hosting their last qualifier for players who still wish to try. In addition to the glory that comes with winning, the champion will also receive plenty of cash and a nice watch too.Don’t start thinking that the main event is the only event remaining because that could not be further from the truth. Today there is a $75 buy-in for Fixed Limit Omaha as well as a $109 buy-in Texas Hold’em Six-Max Turbo tournament that will host a prizepool of at least $10,000. On Friday there are two tournaments who have guarantees that total at least $15,000, which means that there is over $25,000 to play for between today and tomorrow. On top of all of this there is the main event which will be a fittingly huge ending to this huge tournament series. Just like on the Merge Network with Poker Maximus, the Bovada Black Diamond Poker Open has been quite the success story.
