Blogger? Join the Blogger Poker Tour today! From the Blogosphere to the Aussie Millions... BPT - only at Poker.com!. BPT Event 6 (12/2) hosted by Flopilicious!

Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, and many other great musicians are some of the bigger names in the House of Blues. Each one making their personal mark in the history of music and with their personal and distinct sounds to live forever.

Today, it's the sound of poker chips set to a blues background. Names such as Irongirl, Kufolem, ViezeMan, imjusthere4thebeer, our host skinski, and many others. Today, event five of the Blogger Poker Tour, our cast of chip slinging bloggers compete to be the master or mistress of the house of poker blues and we're live with complete coverage here at the Poker Pub.

And speaking of our host. It was Skinski himself who took down last year's Poker Pub Beerbash, when the BeerGuy was hosting the BPT. Can the BeerMan return the favor? Whoever takes this event down will have the steepest field in BPT History. Already, there are 111 registered. With 1 hour to go, this event shall feature the most bloggers this tour has ever seen in one tournament. A solid finish by any of the top players will all but assure a trip to the Grand Final to compete for that Aussie Millions seat.

And while we're on the topic of top players and leaderboard points, here's a look at the official BPT Leaderboard.

The game today is 6-seat NL Texas Hold'em. You can follow the action with live up to the minute chip counts from the official tournament page.

We'll be back in 45 for complete live coverage of the Blogger Poker Tour.
