The 2014 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) is coming to your desktop in September at PokerStars. The poker festival offers online poker players a shot at life-changing money and the opportunity to test their poker skill and knowledge against players around the world — that window of opportunity just got a lot wider with the introduction of The Protégé!
The Protégé offers the incredible chance to play in three exciting WCOOP events — including the $5,200 WCOOP Main Event that packs a massive $10 million guarantee! It gets better...you can also train with one of the four best poker players in the world!
The journey to The Protégé
Team PokerStars Pros Andre Akkari, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov and Vanessa Selbst are the pros that are offering to help you make GOOD and win as much as possible.
To become one of the four lucky winners, you want to be in action every day from July 20th to August 3rd in the four daily $5.50 tournaments.
The tournaments can give you the opportunity to be coached by the poker pro the tournament is named for — plus you'll also be fighting it out for the tournament prize pool.
- 13.00 ET – Eugene Protégé Qualifier
- 14.00 ET – ElkY Protégé Qualifier
- 17.00 ET – Vanessa Protégé Qualifier
- 18.00 ET – Andre Protégé Qualifier
Finish in the top two of any of these tournaments and you'll be required to make a one-minute video that will be reviewed by the tournaments' poker pro. Start planning your video now, put as much into it as possible, and be sure to play to win a shot to show it off.
The PokerStars pro will select the top two videos and then it's up to the public to decide who wins the unique opportunity to receive personal training. There's still more opportunity coming your way — you'll also receive a free tournament buy-in to three WCOOP tournaments including the 2014 WCOOP Main Event!
There's Still More!
The four players that win the prestigious role of protégés are going to battle it out for the title of becoming the ultimate protégé and receive an over-the-top grand prize of a 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package.
If you are one of those players, your cashes in the three free WCOOP events will determine your standings for the grand prize. Rack up the highest cashes and you'll be on your way to the Bahamas in style this winter!
