Hit and Run: PokerStars WCOOP Details; WPT Alpha 8 Season 2; Mohegan Sun Launches in NJ

Staff : July 21st, 2015


PokerStars reveals full WCOOP schedule. Mohegan Sun online casino launches in New Jersey. Season 2 of WPT Alpha 8 debuts on FOX Sports 1. And more.

PokerStars WCOOP 2015

The full schedule for the 2015 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, or WCOOP for short, has been unveiled. The 70-event series will run from September 6 – 27, and will feature $45 million in guarantees.

The annual series is the most anticipated in online poker, and this year the Main Event (a $5,200 buy-in tournament) will boast a $10 million guarantee, and a second guarantee of $1.5 million to the winner.

Mohegan Sun joins the fray in New Jersey

New Jersey online gamblers have a new legal online casino option to choose from as Mohegan Sun has launched an online casino under Resorts license.

It might seem a bit odd for a casino to launch an online gaming skin for another casino, particularly a casino that doesn’t even have a brick & mortar presence in New Jersey, but Mohegan Sun took over management of Resorts Casino in 2012, and is one of the more recognizable casino brands in the country.

Alas, there will be no online poker for the time being.

Quick Hitters

Pennsylvania is still contemplating online gaming expansion, but a new bill introduced on Monday would prohibit social gambling.

Laurent Polito is on quite the tear in WPT National Series tournaments, as the Frenchman recently captured his fourth WPTN title in the past two years.

Former EPT tournament director Thomas Kremser is launching his own poker tour.

Barry Carter offers up his thoughts on PokerStars $51k online tournament and why people may or may not play in the historic tournament.

Season 2 of the WPT Alpha 8 series (Super High Roller tournaments featuring buy-ins of at least $100k) debuted on FOX Sports 1 Monday night.

What were old school poker players like? A 2+2 thread was created to talk about three of them, an Eskimo, a Tuna, and The Kid. The thread is only two pages at this point, but it has the potential for greatness.
