Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane...nope! It's WBCOOP around the corner once again taking over with eleven days of intense poker and hundreds battling it out for fantastic prizes and bragging rights!

Whether you're a recreational or more serious player, this is a great opportunity to take part in a fantastic event and have a chance to duke it out against great competition along with some of the pokerstars pros!

On a personal level, i have always prefered pokerstars as my go to site for playing cards! A constant great selection of games for every kind of bankroll, more than fair amounts of participants twenty four hours a day and some fantastic promotions!

Talking about special events, around two years ago something awesome happened to me on this very site. There were qualifiers running for the americas cup of poker being held in south america on a beautiful resort and casino where the top four of every eligible country would meet for the live final.

Qualifying for this was by far the highlight of my time on Pokerstars and even though i couldn't make it to Uruguay due to the unexpected death of a familly member, i was really thrilled to see my canadian comrades take home the first place title!     

Nowadays, i decided to take on a personal challenge to try and make it to twenty five dollars nolimit hold'em cash games by the end of this year, starting up at the lowest available stakes on pokerstars which, by default, is two dollars no limit hold'em.

Starting January first, i grinded long hours and days on multiple tables simultaneously. Beggining with eighty dollars set aside from my bankroll i embarked on this perilous quest! Around two hundred hours later and approximately ninety thousand hands, i managed to earn two hundred and fifty dollars of profits.

I have been averaging around thirteen big bets per hundred hands over this time span playing a mix of four tabling zoom poker along with some regular tables. This has been helping me practice my reading abilities and decision making a whole lot and i have decided to move up to the next limit, which is five dollars no limit hold'em , only when i have a firm grip and grasp in my capabilities to crush this first level.

Doing this challenge as also allowed me to accumulate around a thousand two hundred and fifty frequent player points which i could exchange for a ten dollar reward in the vip store or use to participate in fpp tournaments. I also achieved the first yearly vip stellar reward worth ten dollars all the while maintaining a silver star status.

On a final note, it has been a great start of the year for me with consistent winnnings even though it took quite a bit of work. If i can keep focused and dedicate on improving areas of my game, i might just make it to my goal! If i can do it anyone can! I will post updates on my progress!

I wish everyone a great series, good luck on the tables and cya on the virtual felt!
