World Championship of Online Poker set for September

3 Jul 2008

ISLE OF MAN, U.K. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The seventh annual PokerStars.com World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), begins on September 5th with a guaranteed prize pool of $30 million – double the total of last years' event.

The WCOOP is truly a "world championship" series of events, featuring a menu of 33 different events in total, covering a wide range of poker games including Hold'em, Omaha, Stud, Razz, HORSE, 2-7 Draw and many new events: $10,300 High-Roller No-Limit Hold'em, Eight-Game Mixed tourney, Four-Max No-Limit Hold'em, Mixed Hold'em, PLO with one rebuy, one add-on, $25,500 High-Roller Heads-up No-Limit Hold'em, Six-Max Mixed Hold'em, No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw, Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em w/ rebuys.

This year's WCOOP will be the biggest online poker tournament series in the world; attracting players from across the globe competing for millions in cash prizes and coveted WCOOP commemorative gold bracelets. Each WCOOP event has a huge guaranteed prize pool, with many in excess of $2,000,000.

"Prestigious tournaments such as the PokerStars.com World Championship of Online Poker are the ultimate way to improve your game and experience the excitement of big tournament play" said Joe Hachem of Team PokerStars Pro. There are hundreds of live tournaments to play in, but nothing compares to the all online series that the WCOOP is – for millions of players it is the ultimate online poker championship.

The WCOOP is hosted exclusively by the world's largest poker room, PokerStars.com. The WCOOP will run across 16 days, from September 5th -22nd, starting with the $215 buy-in NL Hold'em tournament. The series culminates with the $10,000,000 guaranteed NL Hold'em Main Event, September 21st -22nd. Last year's Main Event champion was online player 'Ka$ino', who won first prize of more than $1.3 million

The WCOOP is a "must-play" event for the established and elite stars of poker. But with so many recent WCOOP Events won by new online players and poker enthusiasts, there is every reason to test yourself against the world's best. No other sport allows for participation in this way by both professionals and amateurs in a true championship event. Players can qualify for WCOOP events via low-priced satellites to the series – these are running now with buy-ins from as low as $2.20. MTT satellites will start on July 6 after the PokerStars.com Sunday Million. As a bonus to loyal players, PokerStars will also be adding $1.5 million towards free entries to the WCOOP.
