PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker (WBCOOP)
The PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker is a series of freeroll tournaments hosted by PokerStars open exclusively to verified operators of poker-related blogs. The WBCOOP is a great way for PokerStars to increase their presence in the blogosphere while also rewarding all the amateur journalists of the poker world.
There are no cash prizes for any of the WBCOOP events, but instead, winners are given SCOOP tournament tickets. Each of the six preliminary events last year awarded $1,050 in tickets to the top finisher, and the Main Event—which fetched 2,062 entrants and paid out 136 places—shipped tickets valued at $3,150 to the lucky winner. Several “spot prizes” were also awarded to participants with the best blog posts and tweets.
To qualify for the WBCOOP, you’ll need a blog that’s updated regularly and has been active for at least two months. You’ll need to submit an application and then, once approved, post a unique verification code to your blog to confirm that it’s really yours.
