LParreira wins 2007 World Blogger Championship of Online Poker
Being a poker player and running a blog can sometimes be a hard gig. You run the risk of giving too much of yourself and your game away. Regardless, there are hundreds upon hundreds of people who spend part of their day playing cards and part of their day writing about the game or whatever else strikes them.
This year, the World Blogger Championship of Online Poker drew 1,337 player/writers from around the world. The final table showed just how international the game and blogs are. The nine final table players came from eight different countries.
Eighty-one players won everything from duffel bags, to iPods, to xBoxes. The final table players won some big prizes, including Portugal's LParreira, who beat out everybody and will be joining us for the 2008 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas in January.
On a personal note, thank you to all the players who came out, had fun, and played with respect for your fellow bloggers. It was a good time all around and we had a great final table.
Here are the final table players and what they walked away with. Congratulations to all.
