PokerStars’ Provisional WCOOP Schedule Released
PokerStars has released a provisional schedule for its upcoming World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP), which is due to take place in September.
The WCOOP is set to have a total of 65 events over three weeks, with buy ins ranging from $215 to $25,500. The two-day WCOOP Main Event will have a $10,000 buy in, with $1.5 million guaranteed for the first place getter in that tournament.
A $215 No Limit 6 Max event is set to kick the WCOOP off on September 8. The two day event will be followed by a $215 No Limit event that will begin later on the same day. A $215 turbo event with rebuys is also set to be held the following day, which will add a little variety to the WCOOP.
Hold’em will not be the only variety of poker that will be featured in this year’s event. A number of Omaha events will also be held, kicking off with a $320 Pot Limit event on the second day of the WCOOP.
A $2,100 Pot Limit 6 Max Omaha event is also set to be held on September 26, which will be the largest Omaha event at this year’s WCOOP in terms of buy in. A $700 Pot Limit Heads Up event on September 28 will cap off the 2013 WCOOP Omaha tournaments.
Other poker varieties set to be played include Courchevel, with a $215 Plot Limit Hi/Lo event to be held on September 10. Two 7-Card Stud events will also be held in this year’s WCOOP along with two HORSE events.
A $320 Pot Limit Badugi event is also set to be held at the WCOOP as well as a Triple Draw and Single Draw 2-7 events. Razz will also be featured in this year’s festivities, with a $530 Razz event set to take place on September 24.
Those who like a quick game are also in luck as a number of turbo events are set to be held throughout the WCOOP. One of those will be a $320 No Limit event that is set to take place on September 13. A $215 No Limit Turbo Knockout event is also set to take place as is a $215 Pot Limit Omaha event.
A few high stakes events will also be held during this year’s WCOOP, with the first being a two-day long $25,500 No Limit High Roller event, which is set to take place on September 15. A $15,400 No Limit High Roller Heads Up event is also set to be held as part of the WCOOP, with September 22 currently being the date for that tournament.
While the WSOOP schedule is not fully “set in stone”, it looks to be one of the biggest WCOOPs with a substantial variety of events and formats to take place. Sattelites for events in this year’s WCOOP are due to start from August 8, with a confirmed schedule to be released before then.
