Blogging to the World Series of Poker

As many of you know, I love the market, I love writing and I love poker. In addition to writing on this blog, I write market analysis and provide equity research five times a week on MSW. To my delight, I went to play a sit-and-go no limit hold’em game tonight and saw an advertisement link to a free tournament sponsored by PokerStars for all types of bloggers. I use exclusively and can recommend them to anyone interesting in playing online.

Here are some details from the PokerStars website:

PokerStars is proud to announce the 2nd Annual World Blogger Championship of Online Poker (WBCOOP). This is an exclusive FREE poker tournament open ONLY to Internet bloggers.”

“To prove our continued commitment to the bloggers of the world, we're giving away a $12,000 package to the 2006 World Series of Poker. This package includes a $10,000 buy-in to the main event, hotel accommodations, and additional spending money. Imagine blogging your WSOP experience live from Las Vegas! You'll have endless blogging material, a shot at being on TV, and a chance to win millions of dollars.”

“…you do not need to deposit money in your PokerStars account or provide any financial information in order to play in the World Blogger Championship of Online Poker event. Yes, it's absolutely free!”

Each blogger in the poker tournament will start with 2,000 chips.
Blinds will start at 10/20 and will go up every 15 minutes.
Prizes will be awarded based on placement in the tournament.

Good Luck to all that enter!

I will be there using my wife’s screen name for good luck!
