PokerStars has bumped the guarantees of its ongoing Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) series by another $10 million, taking the overall series guarantees to a whopping $95 million.
The Main Event Low tiered buy-in which originally had guarantees of $3 million now guarantees half a million more, going up to $3.5 million.
Super Tuesday which runs later today guarantees $600K — up from $350K and $109 Mini Thursday Thrill gets a raise of $250K, now guaranteeing a total of $750K.
A few more SCOOP events’ guarantees have also increased so look out for the schedule and more details over here.
SCOOP now falls just $5 million short of hitting the magical nine-figure and also equaling the record for the biggest guaranteed online tournament series which now belongs to GGPoker’s WSOP Super Circuit Series that guarantees a monstrous $100 million.
At the time of writing, 54 SCOOP tournaments have completed generating over $25 million in prize money.
Looking at how things have gone so far, there is a possibility that the operator could further raise SCOOP guarantees by another $5 million and hit the $100 million mark.
