Don't Miss the Trio of PokerStars SCOOP Afterparty Main Events This Weekend

PokerStars SCOOP Afterparty

All good things must come to an end, and that is the case with the PokerStars SCOOP Afterparty, which draws to a close on June 10. As with all online poker tournament festivals worth their salt, the SCOOP Afterparty concludes with its Main Events; three of them, in fact.

The trio of SCOOP Afterparty Main Events shuffle up and deal at 6:05 p.m. BST on June 9. All three are played as No-Limit Hold'em and are mystery bounty tournaments spanning across two days. Each Day 1 ends 7 hours 55 minutes after the pitching of the first cards, with Day 2 scheduled to resume at 6:05 p.m. BST on June 10, continuing until a champion emerges.

SCOOP Afterparty 43-L: $11 NLHE Main Event Mystery Bounty, $150K Gtd

The low edition of the SCOOP Afterparty Main Event is the most accessible because it only costs $11 to enter. For that sum, you receive 50,000 chips and play to a 15-minute clock where the blinds start at 125/250/30a.

Up to three re-entries are permitted during the late registration period, which ends after four hours.

Although $11 is affordable for many poker players and represents excellent value thanks to the $150,000 guaranteed prize pool, you may want to win yourself a seat or two via PokerStars' satellites.

Those satellites have buy-ins of $0.55, $1.10, and $2.20 and run around the clock. A $1.10 buy-in satellite with 10x $11 seats guaranteed runs at 4:45 p.m. BST on June 9.

SCOOP Afterparty 43-M: $109 NLHE Main Event Mystery Bounty, $1M Gtd

The medium edition of the SCOOP Afterparty Main Event is essentially a Sunday Million in disguise. $109 is the cost to enter, but you get to play for a share of at least $1 million, including $500,000 worth of mystery bounties.

Similar to the $11 version, the $109 SCOOP Afterparty Main Event allows up to five re-entries for the first four hours of play, and blind levels are 15 minutes long throughout. $109 Main Event players start with 100,000 chips, and blinds start at 250/500/60a.

If you want to satellite into this tournament, you are spoiled for choice, with $37.50 buy-in sit-and-go satellites and traditional satellites from $1.10 available. Keep 6:05 p.m. BST on June 8 and 4:05 p.m. BST on June 9 free because that is when an $11 buy-in mega satellite guaranteeing 100 and 200x $109 seats takes place.

Don't forget, you can also redeem your Bronze Power Path Pass, if you have one, for the $109 entry.

SCOOP Afterparty 43-H: $1,050 NLHE Main Event Mystery Bounty, $450K Gtd

The big guns will be on display in the$1,050 edition of the SCOOP Afterparty Main Event, as you would expect in an online tournament commanding a four-figure buy-in. High rollers enter the battle with a 250,000 stack and play to blinds starting at 800/1,600/200a, which increase every 20 minutes.

Those with deep pockets or who have secured seats from satellites can re-enter up to three times during the first 4.5 hours of play. Once late registration closes, you are on your own!

Phase satellites from $5.50 are your cheapest route into this tournament. However, two June 9 satellites stand out from the crowd. A $55 buy-in affair at 4:05 p.m. BST on June 9 has 10x $1,050 seats up for grabs, while at least 15 PokerStars players will win $1,050 seats in the $109 buy-in satellite at 5:05 p.m. BST on June 9.

PokerNews will have a recap of all the SCOOP Afterparty Main Event Mystery Bounty action for you on June 11.
