Get ready for another wild online series at PokerStars. It's crazy to think that it's now the 20th anniversary of the World Championship of Online Poker with the 2021 WCOOP beginning in less than nine days. The 2021 WCOOP is on pace to be one for the richest tournaments in online gambling history, which will also have to compete with the WPT Online Championships at partypoker and the international leg of the WSOP Online at GGPoker.
The 2021 WCOOP begins on August 22 and runs through September 15. The tradition of WCOOP includes three price points of tournaments, which caters to players of all levels of skill and bankroll. And even if you're flat broke, there's plenty of chances to win free tickets via satellites. Heck, just scrape together $5.50 and you'll be able to take your shot at a coveted WCOOP title.
The 2021 WCOOP will feature 102 events with 306 tournaments in the low, medium, and high ranges. There's a Main Event Championship, a PLO Championship, a High Roller, and a slew of $10K events. There's really a little of everything, even for you Razz sadists.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, September 12. That's when there's a pair of WCOOP Championships. WCOOP Event #91 is the Main Event NL Hold'em Championship with buy-ins at $55, $530, and $5,200. The High version of the Main Event has a $10 million guaranteed prize pool and the winner will walk away with seven figures. The inevitable champ will also become an instant virtual star, especially if they're an unknown player. Of course, every pro from every corner of the globe would love to win the big one at WCOOP because a seven-figure score is nothing to sneeze at and a major win like a WCOOP Main Event title definitely looks good on their resume and on their Wikipedia entry.
There's a $25K Super High Roller set for Sunday, August 29. That has a $3 million guaranteed prize pool. Even if you cannot afford the buy in, that's definitely an event you'd like to check out on the virtual rail. There's also five $10K events including the PLO Championship, a $10K NL High Roller, and 8-Game High Roller.
If you don't have much time, there's a dozen turbos to get excited about, including a hyper-turbo and a couple PKO freezeouts.
There's games for everyone including PLO, HORSE, Limit Hold'em (6-Max), Stud 8, Stud, Limit O8, NLO8, 8-Game, PLO8, Badugi, 5-Card Draw, Heads-up NL, Triple Draw, Single Draw, Deepstack, and 5-card PLO.
