There are 66 events coming to your desktop in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) and it all starts on Sunday, September 8th, with $40,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools! Get set to become a millionaire if you are the last player standing in the Main Event because the guarantee for that incredible feat is at least $1,250,000.

You can get right in the action and play to win a coveted WCOOP bracelet when you satellite in! For the small sum of $1 you can keep playing satellites to get into as many of the events as possible, never give up because the rewards could change your life.

The poker festival runs clear to the 29th of September and has something for everyone, pros and beginners alike, and features all the games you've grown to know and love — 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. If you didn't love the game choices before, you will after you play them, and who knows, they may become your favorites, especially after you take down a nice cash prize.

If the buy-ins are a bit steep for your bankroll, do check out the satellites that are running around the clock — remember, you can start with a $1 satellite buy-in — and you can also play in the 2013 WCOOP 2nd Chance Tournaments where buy-ins start at half the price of the WCOOP scheduled events.

Winning a WCOOP event will not only give you a WCOOP bracelet — and fame — and glory — it will also send you up the ladder on the WCOOP 2013 Leader Board. But you don't have to win a WCOOP event to score a spot on the WCOOP leaderboard, just cashing in an event will start your quest to take down a top 10 finish on the leaderboard. The prizes are incredible — with 1st place being the most incredible of all.

Imagine what you can do with the prizes on the WCOOP leaderboard, and keep that thought in mind when you're playing in a WCOOP event. Talk about life-changing money, that's where it's at!

Russian player maratik claimed the 2012 WCOOP Main Event for $1,000,907 (after a six-way chop), two days of extreme poker action, and playing through a field of 1,825 — and this year it could be you!

The 2012 WCOOP had more than $55,522,590 in cash prizes that ran across 65 scheduled events and the 2013 WCOOP will explode with a new record for every event and it's a must-play.
