2012 WCOOP Offers $30 Million, 65 Tourneys in 22 Days

The 2012 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker will award over $30 million in 65 separate events from Sept. 2-23.

It’s the biggest WCOOP ever held and the tournaments will take place in almost every poker variant in existence including Hold’em and PLO but also Seven-Card Stud, Draw, Heads-Up, HORSE, Shootout, Razz and many others.

Buy-ins range from $215 to $10,300 so there’s something for grinders of all levels.

The series will culminate with the $5,200 Main Event on Sept. 23 with a $5 million guaranteed prizepool including $1 million to first place.

Other highlight events include a pair of $1+ million guaranteed tournaments on opening day, the $1.25 million guaranteed $10k high roller tournament on Sept. 9 and the $10k 8-Game High Roller on Sept. 23.

There’s also Badugi tournament on Sept. 11 for players interested in slightly more obscure games.

Last year Danish poker pro Thomas “Kallllle” Pederson outlasted 1,627 players in the 2011 WCOOP Main Event to win $1.2 million.

Satellites are now running for 2012 WCOOP on PokerStars and it’s possible to qualify for as little as a $1, or if you’re really lucky, free. Check our PokerStars review for more information.
