What a great idea for a Poker series (the World Blogger Championship of Online Poker)

Just found a posting on the Pokerstar's Blog about a series of events they are running called the World Blogger Championship of Online Poker.

I love the idea that someone has made this rather odd link between Blogging and Poker and managed to convince someone to made a event out of it.

The blog entry can be found here (http://www.pokerstarsblog.com/2008/12/wbcoop-2008-calling-all-bloggers.html) and more details can be found on the PokerStars website at http://www.pokerstars.com/blog_tournament/

The other interesting thing is in the small print at the bottom of http://www.pokerstars.com/blog_tournament/ and is the mention of something called the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). I can't see any other mention of this on the Pokerstars website, so I guess we'll have to wait a little bit to see what it is all about, but if it is anything like the WCOOP series that is held each year on PokerStars it should be something well worth looking forward to!
