PokerStars’ SCOOP 2021 Festival to Take Place in April

The record-holder series will return much earlier this year.

Online poker giant PokerStars has unveiled the dates for the prestigious Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) series.

For the first time in over a decade, the 2021 edition of the SCOOP festival will take place entirely in the month of April. It will kick off on Sunday, April 4 and run through Wednesday, April 28.

The last time SCOOP was entirely held in the month of April was back in 2009 when the series was established. Since then, the series has always taken place in May.

Last year in 2020, SCOOP created the record for the largest tournament series in the history of online poker.

Held during the heights of the lockdown as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic, the series which originally guaranteed $85 million was raised to $135 million.

After a full month of play, the SCOOP 2020 series awarded $185 million across 371 tournaments.

Guarantees and further details for the upcoming edition are yet to be announced though we expect the total guaranteed prize money close to $100 million.
