PokerStars WCOOP to Include WCBOOP Bloggers Event

Share this
The biggest online tournament series in the world is almost here, which is of course the 2009 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) presented by PokerStars.

Players across the globe are gearing up, entering satellites and getting ready to take their seats in this amazing tournament series which will have a total prize pool of a staggering $40 Million Dollars. The WCOOP encompasses 45 events which include three High Roller events, concluding with the No Limit Hold’em Main Event grand finale that features a whopping guaranteed prize pool of $10,000,000! And the best news for players is that they can qualify for these events for just a dollar! Satellite qualifiers are going on now at PokerStars starting from as little as $1 or 100 FPP and these qualifiers are running around the clock, so all players can find one that fits their playing schedule.

There is no need to stress over buy-ins either, even if you don’t win a qualifier, because there are events to suit even the smallest of bankrolls. Events start with buy-ins as low as $109 for the $50k Guaranteed 8-game and $215 for the $1,250,000 Guaranteed No-Limit Hold’em tournaments. But if you happen to have a fat bankroll, jump in the $10,300 Buy-in High Roller event that promises a $2 Million Dollar Guaranteed prize pool!

PokerStars has something for everyone in the WCOOP including bloggers! While the official kick off of the WCOOP will be on September 3rd with Event 1, the $215 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max, the WCOOP really starts a few days earlier with a special event just for bloggers – the WBCOOP!

The World Bloggers Championship of Online Poker event will be held Sunday, August 30, at 12:45 ET. This event is by invitation only to bloggers who played in last years’ tournament and will award 18 seats into the WCOOP Event #6, which is a $109 event having a $1 million guaranteed prize pool! Bloggers who played in the 2008 event are invited to this years’ blogger championship via a special email from PokerStars.  If you are a blogger and played last year but haven’t received your invitation, check your PokerStars account for the ticket then use it to register now by going to the "Tourney" then "Private" tab in the PokerStars lobby.

Last year the WBCOOP was a smashing success with 369 blogging players from around the globe participating, but when the smoke cleared, it was two bloggers from Estonia, ‘Imric_es’t and ‘Priitk’ taking the top two spot honors. These lucky players from the European blogasphere scored big, with Imric_est winning the first place prize of a PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package, worth $14,300 and his compatriot Priitk snagging an EPT prize package, a SCOOP Main Event ticket, and a Step 6 ticket for his second place finish. In total PokerStars gave away over $100,000 worth of prizes, making the WBCOOP the biggest online blogger event in history.

Whether you blog or not, PokerStars has a WCOOP event just for your bankroll and style, and with $40,000,000 in cash at stake – this is one event you can’t afford to miss!
