PokerStars WCOOP 2009

by AintLuck.com Poker Team

The Main Event of the World Series of Poker is currently underway, so what better time for the world’s largest online poker site, PokerStars, to announce the schedule for the year’s most anticipated online tournament series, the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP).  The highly successful event is set to begin on September 3rd and this year’s installment will be the biggest one to date.  In 2008, there were 33 bracelet events and this year there will be a slate of 45 featuring games in all of the poker forms, Hold’em, Omaha, Razz, Stud, HORSE, Badugi, and 2-7 Triple Draw.

Like in every year since it’s inception in 2002, all of the world’s top online poker players are expected to participate.  As PokerStars sponsored pro Daniel Negreanu said in a press release:

“There are hundreds of exciting tournaments all year round, but nothing compares to the WCOOP – it’s the ‘must play’ event of the year for any poker player. Last year, over 20,000 players came together from across the world to compete in the largest ever online poker event for their chance to become a World Champion.”

The WCOOP is expected to offer over $40 Million in guarantees which will include several new events added to the lineup.  For example, they will be featuring a $320 buy-in Fixed Limit Badugi tournament, a $530 buy-in Heads-Up Pot Limit Omaha contest, and a Big Ante No Limit Hold’em event.

As in years past, the grand finale will be a $5,200 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Main Event that will run for two days with a guaranteed $10 Million prize pool, in addition to a $10,300 HORSE tournament with a $1Million guarantee.
