Just a few days remain until the world's bloggers will compete in the biggest blogger freeroll on the planet. PokerStars' World Blogger Championship of Online Poker (WBCOOP) is this Sunday at 4:00pm ET. The stakes are high. The online scribes will be competing for more than $37,000 worth of prizes, including a seat in the 2006 World Series of Poker main event.
