Blog for a Chance to Win Cash and SCOOP tickets!

The World Blogger Championship of Online Poker (WBCOOP) is back for 2013! Submit your blog entry now and you could win a share of thousands of dollars in cash across 31 free events. There are also online tournament tickets to be won, plus big cash rewards for the best bloggers. To qualify, all you need to do is blog!

This year’s series runs from March 1-11, and we’ve upgraded the schedule with a huge selection of games in a range of different formats, including a $5,000 guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Main Event on Monday, March 11.

There are cash prizes worth up to $5,000 to be won for the Best Blogger, the Best Live Tweeter, WBCOOP Leader Board players and the Best Female Blogger - a first for 2013. And if you manage to bust any Team PokerStars Pros making an appearance throughout the series, you’ll also win $22 SCOOP tickets.



Here's How the 2013 WBCOOP Works

Submit - send us either a 500-word blog post, or short video, before March 9 telling us what has been your best moment while playing on PokerStars.

Share - next you have to share your blog/video with all your friends and followers via social media.

Free ticket - entrants will be credited with 10 tickets to play any of the 31 WBCOOP tournaments (see full schedule below).

Tournament prizes - Each tournament awards Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) tickets to the highest finishers, and everyone who cashes will be invited to play the 2013 WBCOOP Main Event.

Additional prizes - $5,000 will also be awarded to the Best Blogger, $1,000 to the Best Live Tweeter, and $500 to the Best Female Blogger. There's also a WBCOOP Leader Board with additional prizes for players with the most points scored across the series.

Main Event - the WBCOOP Main Event takes place Monday, March 11 at 10:00 ET, with a prize pool of $5,000!



Note: Blog submissions will only be accepted in English, Russian, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Danish and Portuguese. Please read the WBCOOP Terms & Conditions before submitting your entry.

Contact support@pokerstars.com if you have any questions about how to enter WBCOOP tournaments.

Hey everyone!

I'm a bit new here - played last year and wrote about it in my blog at

http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/blogs/post/?id=41360

It's got a tight opening, a loose and goosey middle, with a flourish for a finish, and when I say style, well.... I guess you'll just have to read it for that surprise ending we all crave sooooooooooo much! Hey - happy blogging and gaming!

I did not manage to get to the webpage of WBCOOP2013. I either get to the Romanian version of a WBCOOP 2011 page or the English version of the WBCOOP 2012 page. Not ready yet?

Hi cibad,

It's often the case that different countries have different pages for promotions. If I were you I'd drop an email to support@pokerstars.com and they will email you back with a link to details of this years WBCOOP.

You are right, RR. Being in Romania the address with www.pokerstars.com goes automatically in www.pokerstars.ro where the WBCOOP was not updated last year, so the results from 2011 appear. Then I tried to switch to the English page, I got to the www.pokerstars.eu and here I found the results from WBCOOP 2012. The new version for WBCOOP 2013 was present only on the German site of Poker Stars! I will wait till somebody updates at least the English page of pokerstars.eu site!

Good luck everyone! Once the voting is up over at PokerNews, perhaps we can make an updated post listing all the PSO entries so that we can easily vote for them.

Here is my entry Roland's Room
