SCOOP returns this weekend

Second instalment of popular tournament series from online casino PokerStars.com will feature a trio of main events with varying buy-ins.

Thursday 29th April 2010



Isle Of Man-licensed PokerStars.com, one of the world’s largest online poker rooms, has announced that the second annual Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) will begin this Sunday. PokerStars.com awarded over $40 million in cash over the course of 22 events last year with the SCOOP’s trio of main events featuring buy-ins of $100, $1,000 and $10,000 being won by online competitor ‘JannotLapin’ followed by Team Poker Stars professionals JC Alvarado and Jude Ainsworth. This year, the SCOOP will be even bigger with 38 events featuring buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $25,500 and festivities are set to commence on May 3 with a six-handed tournament and a two-day no-limit hold’em tournament. Over the following weeks, PokerStars.com will offer at least two daily tournaments before ending with a two-day main event from five o’clock in the afternoon New York time on May 16. “The amount of competition available is just incredible and this year’s SCOOP schedule should provide at least a little bit of something interesting for all players no matter what game they prefer or at what stakes level they’re most comfortable,” said Bryan Slick from PokerStars.com. “In terms of buzz, of course the high-stakes main event is generating a lot of excitement due to its five million dollar guarantee and the fact that we’re guaranteeing one million dollars to the tournament champion. Someone’s life is going to change at the conclusion of that event and others and that’s really exciting.” This year’s SCOOP will also feature new events including the Ante Up tournament in which the blinds will remain the same while antes increase alongside a turbo fixed-limit hold’em event. PokerStars.com revealed that there will be 20 no-limit hold’em events including heads-up, re-buy, shootout and four-handed play competitions. In addition, fans of mixed games will be able to enjoy stud, Badugi, Omaha, triple draw, horse, stud high-low, razz and eight-game tournaments.
