WCOOP schedule announced

Wednesday, 27 July 2011

Amazingly it's been ten years since PokerStars first hosted the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). The site is celebrating the decade by offering a massive $30m in prize money in this year's online festival.

A total of 62 hold’em, Omaha, Draw, Stud, Razz, Badugi, 8 Game and HORSE, events are scheduled from 4th to 25th September with tournament formats including heads-up, shootout, knockout, 4-max/6-max, big antes and turbos. Buy-ins range from $109 to $10,300.

Nine of the 62 events will feature prize pools of $1m with top billing going to the $5,000 No Limit Hold'em event which will feature a prize pool of $5m with the winner pocketing $1m. The full schedule can be found here.

Many of PokerStars' top pros will be taking part in this year's WCOOP including Bertrand Grospellier who had this to say, “I can’t wait to start playing WCOOP. It’s the only online tournament series in the world that gives such amazing structures and prize pools! It’s time to take a shot at my third WCOOP bracelet. Join me!”
