PokerStars Announce WCOOP Schedule
While there is no acknowledged 'World Series' for online poker, most players recognize Poker Stars 'World Championship of Online Poker', as the premier event series online these days.
Poker Stars recently announced the schedule for the WCOOP, as it has become known, and there are some new things in store for players this time around. In response to player demand for HORSE, new this year is a $5,200 buy in HORSE event. The addition of this event also means that Poker Stars will be adding Razz to their platform (Razz is not listed in the Stars interface as of the time of this writing). Indeed, the event that kicks off the WCOOP is a $215 Razz event on Saturday, September 16th.
Although the HORSE event is the biggest buy in, the Main Event of the WCOOP is a $2,600 buy in No Limit Hold Em tournament with a Three Million Dollar guaranteed prize pool.
Poker Stars have every kind of satellite imaginable for these events running 24 hours a day. Of course, players can buy in with either W$ (you can trade these via our Poker Currency Exchange), or real money. The schedule is below.
