Friday May 8,2015 : S.C.O.O.P. STARTS THIS SUNDAY
$40 million in guaranteed prize pools.
The Pokerstars Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) starts this Sunday and will be generating plenty of media coverage and excitement for the next two weeks, with 138 tournaments and $40 million in guaranteed prize pools.
This year's SCOOP will again be divided into three buy-in levels – low, medium and high in order to cater for all budgets, with low-end buy-ins as small as $7.50 rising to high-end buy-ins of up to $21,000.
Most popular genres of the game will be available in the events, including NLHE, Pot Limit Omaha, Badugi, Triple Draw 2-7, and Stud.
Highlights are likely to be the main event and a High Roller Heads Up competition that is likely to attract big bankroll notable names. Top-end buy-ins for these two events are $10,300 and $21,000 respectively.
Pokerstars is running SCOOP satellites for most of the events around the clock, which gives online poker fans the chance to play for considerable prize money on a small investment.
