WBCOOP: Lone Rhino horns out field in Event #6
The 2008 PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker now has its final field set. Sunday's WBCOOP Main Event will host 369 of the world's top poker playing bloggers as they fight for a prize package to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, a European Poker Tour Trip, and other big prizes. You can see a full list of Sunday's players HERE.
Saturday's Event #6 was, as expected, the biggest preliminary event yet. Nearly 550 players showed up for the no-limit hold'em event. The top 72 were guaranteed seats in Sunday's final. Among the top 72 were some of the better known poker bloggers: BigSlickNut, on_thg, BuddyDank, Donegal, CawtBluffin, ZeemJr, and badblood44.
Perhaps the least surprising performance came from the well-known blogger known as glyphic (12th place). Not only did he make the final table in the 2006 WBCOOP, he also won the World Poker Blogger Tour's Holiday Classic a few years back. We'll be watching him today as he settles in to the WBCOOP final.
Top honors, however, went to the United States' Lone Rhino. He picked up three $215 tournament tickets, one $530 tournament ticket and an $11 tournament ticket to go along with the entry into the Main Event final.
Here's how the final table broke down.
1. Lone Rhino (United States) -- Sunday Majors Platinum Package
