A whopping $75 million is up for grabs during the 15 days of the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) from May 12 to 27.
As part of the record-breaking series guarantee, there will be at least one $1 million+ guaranteed tournament running every day of the series. Poker players will have 67 events and 201 tournaments across low, medium and high buy-in levels to choose from.
On May 26 alone $11.5 million will be guaranteed across three Main Events, with buy-ins at $109, $1,050 and $10,300 guaranteeing $2.5 million, $4 million and $5 million respectively.
“The record $75 million guaranteed for SCOOP alone and $115 million in total tournament guarantees across the same 15-day period on PokerStars.com is designed to excite existing players and attract new players. We’re confident players will be delighted with the format, the structure and the quality of these tournaments, many of which were created based on direct input from the players themselves,” said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations. “We love to create these series. They are a sign of who we are, how much we love the game of poker, and our commitment to grow it globally.”
Phase events start in just four days’ time at the following buy-in levels:
Monday, April 15: $2,20 with $250,000 guaranteed
Monday, April 15: $22 with $1 million guaranteed
Sunday, April 21: $215 with $2 million guaranteed
SCOOP is a fixture on the calendar of seasoned poker players but, as in recent years, there will be ways for newer players to try their hand at a big series while still being able to play at a manageable level. Low-tier event buy-ins start at $2.20 and players can satellite in to series events from just $0.11. Satellites start on April 15.
Players can also look out for varied and fun ways to secure SCOOP tickets, including a SCOOP Spin of the Day, where players can win entries into freerolls that will award SCOOP tickets. Special Spin & Go’s run from Monday until May 27 at three buy-in levels - $2, $22 and $215 - and award a variety of SCOOP tickets including Main Event High tickets worth $10,300.
Players can also warm up for SCOOP with the $215 Sunday Million 13th Anniversary, which takes place Sunday April 14 at 13:00 ET with $10 million guaranteed, including $1 million reserved for the winner.
