2015 WCOOP Is Biggest Ever With 70 Events

WCOOP_070807PokerStars has today announced that the 2015 World Championship of Online Poker, which takes place from September 6-27, will be the biggest to date, with a schedule of 70 events – four more than last year. It will also feature the largest buy-in online tournament ever held with a $51,000 Super High Roller and a guaranteed prize pool of $45 million – a $5 million increase on last year.

The highlight of the World Championship is the $10 million guaranteed Main Event on September 27 at 14.30 ET, which is set to be the richest online poker tournament of the year, but there is also a huge amount of buzz and excitement from the world’s top pros at the announcement of a $51,000 Super High Roller tournament.

Team PokerStars Pro and two-time World Championship of Online Poker winner, Jason Mercier, said: “The World Championship is undoubtedly the most prestigious online poker event of the year. There’s a huge range of tournaments, very slow, deep structures, and some massive buy-ins. Winning three SCOOP events earlier this year was awesome, but adding to my two previous WCOOP titles this coming September would be even better.”


PokerStars has added four more events to this year’s schedule to set a new record of 70 different tournaments – the biggest jump in the number of events for five years. Building on the illustrious reputation of WCOOP, for the first time there are also 15 special ‘Championship’ events with bigger buy-ins, which incorporate Hold’em, Omaha, Stud and Draw games of different variations, which will test the very best online players in the world.
