Hot on the heels of the 2007 WSOP wrapping up, PokerStars has announced the 2007 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). This series of 23 online poker tournaments boasts a guaranteed prize pool of over $15 Million, making it one of the richest tournament series on the world, online or live!
Last year, poker pro J.C. Tran took down over $600,000 in the WCOOP Main Event, this year you can add your name to the list of WCOOP bracelet winners by signing up for PokerStars. Buy-ins to the WCOOP range from $215 to $2,600 for the Main Event, and the tournaments are sure to exceed the prize pool guarantees, which range from $100,000 to $5 Million for the Main Event!
PokerStars will begin offering satellites soon to the WCOOP events, which begin on September 14. Players can satellite in for a few dollars, or even free by using the FPPs (Frequent Player Points) to enter satellites for WCOOP seats.
With tournaments in every variety of poker offered on PokerStars, including Razz, 2-7 Triple Draw, 5-Card Draw and HORSE, there is sure to be a tournament for every player's favorite game. The Main Event will be No Limit Hold ‘Em.
