The PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) is set to rock the online world in 18 days with 66 events and huge guaranteed prize pools. The Main Event is going to make a millionaire out of the winner with a guarantee of at least $1,250,000 going to the lucky player that sits atop the field.
Every player has a shot at becoming a world champion and taking home a coveted WCOOP bracelet — win your seat for just $1 when you satellite in. The series kicks off on September 8th and runs through the 29th boasting an incredible $40,000,000 prize pool.
With all the games offered, like No Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit Draw, Pot Limit Courchevel Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo, No Limit Single Draw 2-7, Pot Limit Badugi, and more, everyone will find their special game niche. And if the buy-ins are a little high for your bankroll, head over to the satellites and win your way in with a $1 buy-in. You can also grab a seat in 2013 WCOOP 2nd Chance Tournaments with buy-ins running at half the price of the WCOOP scheduled events.
When you enter your first WCOOP tournament, you aren't competing just for the glory and fame of winning the cash and the coveted WCOOP bracelet, you are also playing for a top spot on the WCOOP 2013 Leader Board. You will earn points for every WCOOP event you cash in and taking down a top 10 finish on the leaderboard has incredible prizes waiting for you — with 1st place being the most prized of all. Those prizes can send you on the road to winning more money than you ever dreamed possible.
The 2012 WCOOP had more than $55,522,590 in cash prizes that ran across 65 scheduled events. Russian player maratik won the Main Event after two days of action and battling it out through a field of 1,825; he took home an amazing $1,000,907 after a six-way chop.
