Just days ago, PokerStars released this year’s schedule for what it describes as “the biggest and most prestigious annual tournament series anywhere online,” the World Championship of Online Poker, or WCOOP.  WCOOP 2012 will begin with three events on Sunday, September 2, and will conclude with three other events, including WCOOP’s Main Event, on Sunday, September 23.

Like last year’s WCOOP, this year’s tournament series will include 62 different events that will be played over a 22-day period.  Even though PokerStars has not yet announced the guaranteed prize pools each event will have, if WCOOP 2012 is similar to last year’s series, PokerStars will reward winning players with more money than what the site ultimately guarantees anyway.  For instance, PokerStars offered $30 million as an overall guarantee for WCOOP 2011, but ended up paying out more than $47 million in prize money.

You can find the complete preliminary schedule for WCOOP 2012 below.  All times are presented in ET.
