The final weekend of this year’s WCOOP did not exactly go as planned. PokerStars experienced perhaps the most significant DDOS attack in its history, forcing the operator to cancel all remaining tournaments and refund players.
The good news is that the interrupted tournaments will still take place as PokerStars has rescheduled the three NLHE and the three PLO Main Events for November, as well as all three tiers of the Women’s Events.
The rescheduled events will take place on Nov 5 – 6, and all three NLHE Main Events will feature boosted guarantees to compensate for the inconvenience. Other than this, tournaments will keep their original structures regarding blind levels and days.
If you want to get involved with the new WCOOP Championship Weekend, keep your eyes peeled for freerolls and regular satellites in the PokerStars tournament lobby.
The operator will run plenty of these over the next few weeks, looking to give as many players as possible a shot at winning a seat in what is likely to be the year’s biggest online poker event.
