The PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker is the largest tournament series held online and one of the largest poker series in the world, online or offline. In 2006, PokerStars hosted 18 events and guaranteed $10,000,000, eventually awarding over $18,500,000 in prizes!

Each year, the prizes get bigger. In 2002, MultiMarine of Sweden won $65,450 in the main championship event. In 2003, DeOhGee won $222,750 in the main event. In 2004, Ragde won $424,945 in the big one. In 2005, Panella86 won the championship event and took home $577,342. Last year, none other than pro player J.C. Tran won the WCOOP main event bracelet, beating a field of 2,510 players and pocketing more than $600,000!

This year, the events are bigger, and once again PokerStars is hosting more than the year before. The NLHE Triple Shootout (last held in WCOOP 2005) returns and two new games, 5-Card Draw and 2-7 Triple Draw, make their way onto the schedule, which culminates with the prestigious Main Event with a guaranteed prize pool of $5,000,000! WCOOP 2007 boasts 23 events with a combined guaranteed prize pool of $15,000,000!

How do I enter the World Championship of Online Poker?

Anyone with a PokerStars account in good standing can enter. You can buy in directly, win a satellite or even get in the game free…through Frequent Player Point freerolls. In fact, to give all of our loyal players a chance to get in the game, we're putting up $1.5 million of our own money toward free entries to our frequent players.

Can I then unregister from an event for which I've won a seat?

Yes. If you win a seat to a WCOOP event and then unregister from it, your account will be credited with W$ equal to the buy-in + fee of that event. Unregistration will be available from the tournament lobby up until ten minutes before the start of each event.

What does the winner of a WCOOP event receive?

The prize is two-fold. For starters, each event has a minimum guaranteed prize pool. The overall WCOOP guaranteed prize pool is $15 million. On top of the cash, you will be competing for a coveted WCOOP bracelet that will be awarded to the winner of each event.
