PokerStars’ Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) is set to make a return as from May 12 to May 17 and this time it will be featuring a record $75 million worth of guaranteed prize pools which will be further supplemented by at least $1 million guaranteed for every single day of the poker series. The $75 million-guarantee is a huge step up from the $65 million that was guaranteed in last year’s event which featured a total of 183 tournament events. Moreover, this year’s SCOOP will feature 67 numbered events and each of them will feature three tournaments.

More Details

Just like previous versions of the event series, the 2019 SCOOP is set to features events with three different buy-in levels, that is, low, medium and high buy-ins. As such, the event will be open to every kind of players and they will all have the opportunity to become a SCOOP champion. During the event, the players will also be treated to a wide range of poker variants and formats that will include such fan-favorite versions as 5-Card PLO, no-limit Hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, 2-7 Single Draw, Win the Button, and Progressive KO among others.

Among the biggest highlight of the forthcoming tournament series will be the six Main Events that have been detailed below.

While all of the events that will go down during the series will certainly feature massive prize pools in relation to its buy-in, these six 2019 SCOOP Main Events are certainly going to be key considerations for the players who love some action-packed gaming and would like to win big. Needless to say, Main Events at most poker tournaments are often the most exciting ones for both the players and the spectators especially because of the huge prize pools that are usually involved.
