This isn't correct. The rules of "How It Works" which I copied before the series began states "every player who played in three or more qualifying tournaments will be eligible for..." The Tuesday Jan. 20th Last Chance Tournament. Despite my work and school schedule I got three games in, expecting and saving myself for the Last Chance. Please do not deny me this opportunity, which was promised in your rules. Thank you! -- shamanalix at CP and Bodog.

Found it! This exact paragraph from your own article Oct. 24 2008, which I copied and used the schedule of these past months. Check your story archive. I was only able to play Nov. 30, Dec. 23 and Jan. 4, but I did play. I love Card Player and Bodog and appreciate all you do for us; but please be fair. The paragraph from your story:

"How it Works

"The Card Player Pro-Bowl Tournament Series is composed of a series of 24 qualifying tournaments that run from Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008 to Sunday, Jan. 18, 2009. The top 30 percent of finishers in each qualifying tournament will earn points based on their finish, and these points will be used to rank players. At the end of the qualifying series, Bodog will host two tournaments: first a last-chance tournament on Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2009, which every player who played in three or more qualifying tournaments will be eligible for, and then, on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2009, we will host the final tournament, open to the top 15 percent of players on the tournament leader board (TLB). Each player’s top 10 point-finishes will count toward the TLB Standings. The top five finishers in the last-chance tournament will also be invited to participate in the final tournament. The first-place finisher in the final tournament will win the Pro Bowl prize package for two and the second- to 10th-place finishers will win a seat in any $100,000-guaranteed tournament on Bodog, which are hosted every Sunday at 4 p.m. ET, a $109 value."

Thank you and Bodog for the correction and fix. (Knew all my years as a newspaper copyeditor would still pay off.) Good luck all!
