PokerStars Confirms $7 Million In Guarantees For 2023 NACOOP Schedule
Poker players in North America can look forward to a guaranteed $7 million worth of tournaments for PokerStars' inaugural NACOOP.
For the first time ever, the COOPs in these three markets are being synchronized to create the combined season of NACOOP.
Prizes and Trophies
Of the $7,000,000 in guarantees, $3,000,000 is earmarked for tournaments in the combined Michigan and New Jersey market. PACOOP will get $2,500,000. And the ONCOOP gets the remaining $1,500,000 — which comes to about 2,000,000 CAD.
The NACOOP series launches on September 15 in all three markets. The high-octane action will continue until October 2.
During this time players aren't just competing for the huge cash prizes, there will also be a 24-karat gold-plated trophy for the winners of the NACOOP Main Events in each market.
As usual for COOP series, the buy-ins for each series will range from $10 donkaments to $2,500+ high-roller events.
Although the full schedule has yet to be confirmed, we do know that all three markets will have:
- a $300 Main Event;
- a $2,500 Super High Roller Championship;
- twenty championship events with trophies;
- leaderboards with $10,000 prize pools; and
- a variety of game formats including pot limit Omaha and mixed game events.
There will also be satellites running online allowing players to win their way into events. With a little luck and a lot of skill, you could event win your $300 Main Event seat for as little as $1.
PokerNews will bring you the full schedule just as soon as it becomes available.
