Get ready for WCOOP! The richest and largest and most prestigious online tournament series returns this Sunday at PokerStars with the 2022 World Championship of Online Poker, so get ready for 104 events and 322 tournaments spread out over three-plus weeks in September. Like all COOP events, the WCOOP has three tiers of buy-ins -- low, medium, high -- to accommodate players of all skill levels and buy-ins.
The 2022 WSOP begins September 4 with the first Sunday of events.
Keep an eye on the historic Main Event, which is slated for September 25 with buy-ins at $109 for low, $1,050 for medium, and $10,300 for the highest tier.
WCOOP 92-L $109 NLHE Main Event has a $2.5M guaranteed prize pool. WCOOP 92-M $1,050 NLHE Main Event comes with a $4M guarantee. And the big one -- WCOOP 92-H $10,300 World Championship of NLHE -- has a steep $6M in guarantees.
The Main Event is one of 12 championship events which also includes the $5,200 NLHE PKO Championship, $1,050 HORSE Championship, $1,050 Badugi Championship, $5,200 NLHE 6-Max Championship, $2,100 PLO8 Championship, $1,050 Razz Championship, $1,050 Women's Championship, $1,050 8-Game Championship, $10,300 NLHE Heads-Up Championship, $1,050 NL 207 Single Draw Championship, and $10,300 PLO Main Event / Championship.
For all the ladies out there, the 2022 WCOOP will make history with the first-ever Women's Event -- which begins September 25 and has three buy-in levels.
Do not forget about the WCOOP Leaderboards. The top player on each of the three tiers plus the overall leaderboard will get $100,000 in cash prizes.
