Described as “the premier online poker series in the world,” this year’s World Championship of Online Poker boasts an overall guaranteed prize pool of $40,000,000. Given the worldwide popularity of WCOOP and its established history of exceeding guarantees year after year, it’s quite possible that WCOOP 2014 will surpass its current guarantee by tens of millions before the tournament series comes to an end.
WCOOP begins with a $109 NL Hold’em tourney that has a $700K guarantee on Friday, September 7 and wraps up with the $5,200 NL Hold’em Main Event on September 28, 2014. This year’s ME has a whopping guarantee of $10M! There are 66 events across multiple poker variants, including HORSE, Razz, PL Omaha, Stud and PL 5-Card Omaha, among others, on this year’s calendar.
PokerStars has a steady stream of affordable satellites leading to tickets to each WCOOP tournament which makes participating in WCOOP tourneys possible regardless of whether your bankroll is $5.00 or $50,000.
