PokerStars has revealed the dates for its most prestigious online tournament series—the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP).
It will run for 21 days from September 5 to 25.
Other details including overall guarantees have not been revealed by the operator, but based on its growth trend over the past few years, this year’s WCOOP could see total guarantees between $85 million to $90 million.
Last year, WCOOP 2018 had guaranteed $70 million across 182 events. Despite this apparently ambitious target, it easily covered most guarantees and paid out almost $100 million across the series.
Like last year, PokerStars has confirmed that this year’s Main Event will come with both a Low and High tier ($5200 buy-in).
Online qualifiers will take place from August 19.
More details are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
