Friday, 18 March 2011

We already brought news that a tentative schedule for the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker 2011 had been released, featuring 111 tournaments of high, medium and low buy-in across 37 events. The prize pool was set with a guarantee of $63,000 for the series with twelve seven-figure guarantees including a $1m, $3m and $5m guaranteed Main Event.

Now PokerStars have revealed the extras on offer for the cream of the crop at the 2011 SCOOP. The winner of each event receives a Movado gold watch with the PokerStars spade and SCOOP Champion on the face. The winners of every event, be it high medium or low, will receive the watch.

Those who look to grind out most of the 111 tournaments being played out will be happy to know that the SCOOP Leader Board makes a return with a Player of the Series being crowned and taking home a nice shedload of prizes – a trophy, a 2011 WCOOP Main Event entry, a 2012 PCA package, an EPT Grand Final package and a PokerStars chip set.

The SCOOP begins on Sunday, May 8 with $22, $215 and $2,100 6-max NL tournaments guaranteeing $300k, $750k and $1m. It just gets more mental from there, really – view the full schedule here. Satellites are running as you read this from as little as $0.25 so what are you waiting for? That watch looks banging.
