WPBT Player of the Year Event #1

WPBT Events are starting up again, so if you're a blogger and you don't suck make you sign up!!!

Hop on the link for the big announcement, or read it below!!

Here it is, the moment you've been waiting for.

Alright all you competition driven bloggers, spread the word:

Announcing the first event in the WPBT-POY Race!

What: Pot-Limit Omaha

Where: PokerStars (Private Tourney 20742121) (password wpbt72)

When: Sunday, March 12th at 9:30 PM EST (that's 6:30 PM PST, according to the supercomputer I use to keep track of time-zone changes).

Cost: $20+2 (couldn't make a $15 tourney and there were slightly more votes for $20 than $10)Requirements: Be a poker blogger who wants to take part in this year-long experiment.

The poker blogging requirements will be light. Even if you post as often as Hdouble, or mention as much poker as AlCantHang, you are good. This rule will be enforced on an honor system. Non-bloggers will not be eligible for the title and the as yet unannounced prize at the end of the year.

POY-Race: From a biweekly series of events (buy-in between $15 and $20) points will be allotted according to the PokerStars tourney formula (buy-in, placement and number of entries are used to figure points). The winner will be announced at the December WPBT gathering, with the December WPBT event counting as the final event towards the race. See previous post for the origin of the rules. Events will be alternated between PokerStars and FullTilt.(If you are a reader that really wants to play, start a sham blog.

You might find yourself making the hideous transformation into a poker-blogger. Before I was a blogger, I was a blog-reader. One of the things that pulled me into this crazy fold was my desire to play in the blogger-only events.)

Watch this site or the WPBT calendar (link at right) for events. Suggestions for events are welcome. The rules will remain as they have been laid out here. Minor changes may occur throughout the year based on majority voting.
