The Main Event of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker kicks off tomorrow; it's the culmination of the world's biggest poker tournament. The Main Event has a guaranteed prize pool of $5,000,000.
The 2010 WCOOP main event brought a field of 2,443 runners to the tables that created an unheard of prize pool of $12,215,000. POTTERPOKER won the event and took home $2,278,076 - that's one of the biggest prizes ever won in a poker tournament. Second and third place, joeysweetp and Russian_nuts both scored over a million dollars each. Make sure you have a seat to the WCOOP main event.
There are satellites running around the clock - you'll find them right up until the Main Event start time at 14:00 ET tomorrow. Satellites start as low as $11. You can use your Frequent Player Points to find a satellite seat to the $5,200 Main Event of PokerStars WCOOP. Turning a zero dollar investment into a mega seven figure bankroll would be the ultimate finale...or beginning to your long term poker career.
