Nine participants will win seats into the World Series of Poker, 2006. Thousands of dollars will be given to Internet bloggers as free prizes, and this sum is really incredible. E. g. the first place winner will get a $ 10,000 entry into the championship event, fully paid hotel accommodations and $ 1, 000 in spending money. The winners of the second through the ninth places will get an entry into a $ 1, 500 buy-in event according to their choice at this year’s WSOP. The holders of the tenth through the 54th places will also be given money, and the sum is said to b equal to more than $ 13, 000.
PokerStars is known to be the first online site to have noticed the greatest role of bloggers and their contribution to the Internet. The company is believed to be the first one to have launched a full time blog for its players. For more information see http://www.pokerstarsblog.com/.
The last year’s WBCOOP proved to be a nice idea, as the number of entries amounted to 1,500. Notice that people representing different interests and professions such as science, technology, politics, gaming, media, business and many others took place in it. A 25-year-old consultant working for a major IT services company became a winner.
