Other Notable Events

The festival kicks off, as you might expect, with Event #1. However, you'll have to wait until the final Sunday of SCOOP to find a winner in those Phase Events, the low buy-in of which is the smallest of the entire festival at just $2.

There are 80 numbered events in total, with each having the usual three buy-in tiers for 240 total tournaments.

The series runs the usual gamut of poker variants, with everything from tried and true no-limit hold'em to five-card draw progressive knockouts on tap.

High-stakes players will find plenty to their liking. Several $10K and $5K events sprinkled throughout SCOOP sport $1 million guarantees, while the aforementioned $25K doubles that.

How Can I Satellite into SCOOP?
