PokerStars Releases Tentative WCOOP Schedule With $100k Super High Roller and Mini WCOOP

PokerStars Releases Tentative WCOOP Schedule With $100k Super High Roller and Mini WCOOP 0001
Sharelines
  • PokerStars has released a tentative schedule for the 2015 WCOOP.

  • Are you ready to take on the brand new Mini WCOOP at PokerStars?

The World Championship of Online Poker starts September 4th and this weekend Bryan Slick asked for feedback on the tentative schedule over on the PokerStarsBlog.

Headlining the schedule is the $102,000 Super High Roller (8-max single reentry) planned for Sunday September 18th. A $10,000 Heads Up High Roller (September 10th), a regular $10,000 High Roller (September 11th) and a $21,000 6-max PLO High Roller (September 23rd) make for an action packed high stakes schedule. The $5,000 Main Event is planned for Sunday September 25th with a guaranteed $1.5 million to the winner.

The schedule, with 82 events, isn't the only thing grabbing the attention of poker players, the announcement of a Mini WCOOP has also got the blood flowing for lower stakes players. Slick described the Mini WCOOP as a separate series of tournaments, equal to it's bigger brother with only the buy in being smaller.

Tournaments of the Mini WCOOP will have buy ins ranging from $1.10 through $11, with the Mini WCOOP Main Event as notable exception with a buy in of $50.

There will be an extremely limited selection of satellites to Mini-WCOOP Events, which will run on the same dates and at the same times, in the same formats, as the WCOOP Events which each one mirrors.

Whether the structures for the events are equal to the bigger regular WCOOP events, is yet to be seen. Mini WCOOP tournaments will not show up under the WCOOP tab in the PokerStars client as they are not part of WCOOP proper.

PokerStars asks for feedback on the schedule via wcoop@pokerstars.com. Take a look at the entire tentative schedule on PokerStarsBlog.com.
