Friday September 20 ,2013 : ONLINE POKER TOURNEY GUARANTEES EASILY OVERTAKEN AT W.C.O.O.P.
We're still only halfway through the schedule, but event guarantees have been exceeded to the tune of $10 million.
The current World Championship of Online Poker online poker tournament is only halfway through at the ten day mark, yet the organisers report that the generous guaranteed prize pools on the various events have been repeatedly exceeded through the buy-ins of big entry fields, surpassing total guarantees to the tune of $10 million and counting.
With 30 events in the books, the tournament has recorded 87,000 entries, a 24 percent increase on buy-ins over last year.
The main event on this edition carries a guaranteed prize pool of $8.5 million…and the expectation is that it, too will be easily overtaken by thousands of enthusiastic and hopeful poker fans.
