PokerStars Guaranteeing $10mm for World Championship of Online Poker Main Event
PokerStars announced that the main event of the 2015 World Championship of Online Poker will again feature a $10 million guaranteed prize pool.
The biggest annual tournament in online poker will be a two-day affair, starting on Sunday, September 27, at 2:30 p.m. Eastern. The buy-in for the event, which has guaranteed the $10mm figure four times in the past, is $5,200.
Satellites to the tournament have already launched in PokerStars’ lobby, at a variety of buy-in levels. Players can also attempt to qualify via “Mega Path” satellites for as little as one frequent player point.
Past champions of the WCOOP ME include Fedor ‘CrownUpGuy’ Holz (2014), JC ‘area23JC’ Tran (2006) and Yevgeniy ‘Jovial Gent’ Timoshenko (2009).
The WCOOP has been running at PokerStars since 2002.
