WBCOOP Approved!, Joe Cada Final Feb 13

I qualified for 5 or 6 weekly semi-finals for the Meet Joe Cada in Vegas tournament by PokerStars. But on the 2nd one, I got into the final, so all those extra attempts will not be needed. Wish me luck on this one, which will be played on Feb 13.

Here's the official email from PokerStars about the upcoming Blogger Championship, for which I am signed up for. We'll see how well I do while bloggin and tweetin and playing in a tourney :P
If it's just one I should do fine, but one of my leaks when multi tabling tournaments is getting too distracted away from the tables.
