It’s business as usual at PokerStars.
First, we would like to remind you that your time to qualify for a trip to meet Joe Cada in Las Vegas is winding down! Cada burst onto the scene by taking down the 2009 WSOP Main Event, earning over $8.5 million. Cada is the youngest player to earn the WSOP crown. Players interested in meeting Joe must compete in daily freerolls, available until February 13, which send the top 45 players to the Weekly Finals. The final two tables of the Weekly Final go on to play for all the marbles in the Grand Final on February 13. The pressure is on in the Grand Final! Players will be competing for a Las Vegas prize package. This all inclusive package includes entry into the NAPT Venetian Event, airfare, five-nights accommodation, a day with Joe Cada, and $1,000 spending money. We hope to see you in Las Vegas with Joe Cada and the rest of Team PokerStars Pro.
Today marks the start of the World Blogger Championship of Online Poker (WBCOOP). The blogger championship series is free, and culminates in the Main Event on January 31. This year, bloggers will be competing for tickets to the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). Bloggers can also score SCOOP tickets by impressing PokerStars with their live blogs or tweets. You must register your blog with PokerStars to compete in the WBCOOP. Visit the PokerStars website for more details.
Don’t forget about the Janaury Sale going on at PokerStars! Until the end of January, PokerStars will be discounting one item in the store each day. Here are the highlights:
The $50 Bonus is available on the 25th for 3k FPPs, which is $0.01667/FPP.
The $285 Bonus is available on the 26th for 20k FPPs, which is $0.01425/FPP. You shouldn’t buy this Bonus if you can access the $1500 or higher normally.
This is only a slightly better value than the normal price of the $650.

The $215 Sunday Million ticket is available on the 30th for 10k FPPs, which is $0.0215/FPP.

Finally, we urge you to step up to the plate and donate to the earthquake victims of Haiti. On January 12, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Haiti. In addition to the devastating earthquake, over 30 aftershocks were recorded. This deadly combination has destroyed infrastructure and claimed over 100,000 lives. Please take a look at this thread before donating. Follow the directions in the thread to quadruple your donation.
