The eagerly-awaited, annual online poker extravaganza known as the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) is underway again, and it’s not too late to enter!
Sure, about a third of the tournament’s 33 events have already taken place (we’ll hold off printing any results until after the entire event is completed), but that leaves 2/3 more of the prize pool left unclaimed.
PokerStars is currently the world’s biggest poker site, and the WCOOP is its biggest annual event, with $30,000,000 in guaranteed prizes. The event includes tournaments in virtually every poker game under the sun:
- 7-Card Stud
- 5-Card Draw
- 2-7 Draw
- Triple Draw
- and of course Texas Holdem
There are hi/lo events and limit, pot limit, and no limit tournaments running in most categories. Players can enter in one of two ways:
- Pay the buy-in directly
- Play a satellite tournament a win a seat into a given event
The 2008 WCOOP runs until Sept 21-22 when players sit in at the main event for a shot at their share of the $10,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Players can watch live coverage of all the events at the PokerStars blog.
