The 2013 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) kicked off this past weekend on PokerStars. WCOOP is the world’s premier online poker festival and this year's edition will run through Sept. 29. The 2013 WCOOP features 66 events and guarantees to award no less than $40 million in cash prizes. Last year’s WCOOP offered a similar guaranteed prize pool and ended up paying a staggering $55,522,590 instead!
