21 Aug 2017
The 2017 edition of WCOOP will celebrate and cater to PokerStars players of all levels. All players who final tabled a WCOOP 2016 event will receive a ticket to the daily $55 Seat Added Satellite, representing around $50,000 of extra value, courtesy of PokerStars. Players who have just missed out on the money in any WCOOP 2017 tourney will be eligible for entry into daily $7,500 added value freerolls representing $165,000 in extra value, running from 4 September to 25 September.
WCOOP 2017 is appointment poker at its best with lots of opportunities for players to make the most out of the series.
- Daily $55 Seat Added Satellites: These tournaments will have one $5,200 Main Event entry added to the satellite each day from today until 24 September, which means that PokerStars will be buying in a player every day until the Main Event, representing more than $175,000 in entries.
- Bubble Freeroll: To appease the pain of bubbling a tournament, any player who directly bubbled a WCOOP 2016 event will also be given a ticket to a special freeroll on 3 September at 14:05 ET where they will play for one of three $5,200 Main Event seats.
- Special edition Spin & Go: These games will allow players to spin their way into WCOOP at either the $27 or $109 buy-in levels. The Spin & Gos are running in the PokerStars client now until 24 September.
- Stars Rewards Chests: There will be more than $700,000 in added value via WCOOP tickets awarded to players in Stars Rewards Chests.
"Between the Low events, a robust satellite program and the generous promotions, players of all levels will have a chance to take part in WCOOP. With such a huge series guarantee, there is plenty of prize money up for grabs."
