Rumble with Your Neighbors in the COOP at PokerStars

Share this
Any online poker player is used to sitting down in a tournament and seeing players from all over the world at the table. Sometimes you may be the only player in the group from your country - but not anymore! PokerStars is hosting the new regional Championships of Online Poker (COOP) which is a tournament series for players from all over the globe. Featuring 11 Events and a massive $3,275,000 Guaranteed prize pool, this is a tournament series not to be missed!

How it works is there are 13 Regions in all and each region has their own special tournament events to play in! Each country’s events not only have their own schedule and qualification structure, but are geared to run during that regions particular time zone. Plus, there is a huge array of buy-ins and games, all with cheap satellites so everyone in the world can afford to get in on the COOP fun and fortune!

The 13 designated regions of the COOP event are: Alpine, America, Asia Pacific, Baltics, Benelux, Canada, Iberia, Latin America and Mediterranean, Nordics, Russian Open, UK & Ireland and Central & Eastern Europe. Each region has its own events with buy-ins ranging from $11 all the way up to $530, but you can qualify for a lot less with the PokerStars Satellites which are running every day! Plus each region will have its own Main Event where you can compete exclusively against other players from your region for bragging rights and your share of the huge cash prize pool when you emerge as your country’s new poker Champion!

Don’t miss the online poker Championship where you can compete exclusively with your neighbors in tournament events that include Holdem, Omaha, Stud, and HORSE. And when you get a bad beat and want to whine or tell an opponent NH (nice hand) you can do it in your own language! This is a big deal for players outside of the US because normally English only is allowed at the tables. Best of all, you can qualify with PokerStars satellites which are running now like the FreeRolls where the buy-in is only 150 FPPs (frequent player points)! There are also a multitude of cheap cash buy in satellites like the $3.33 No Limit Holdem 2x-Turbo that guarantees five Seats to the target event!

The USA and World Championship of Online Poker is a brand-new PokerStars tournament that we will likely be seeing on the online poker tournament circuit every year. This series is sure to be a huge hit as it gives players the chance to prove they are the best player in their area! So grab a chair from November 21st through November 29th to be a part of this huge inaugural event!
