Set to begin on September 3rd, the 2009 World Championship of Online Poker is going to be the largest online poker series in history!  The schedule is made up of 45 events, including three high rollers, with a guaranteed prize pool of more than $40,000,000!  That’s enough cash to make anyone swoon!

But how are you going to get your seat in this record breaking WCOOP?  That’s where PokerStars’ WCOOP Extreme Satellites come into play.

Starting August 4th through August 16th, over $1,000,000 worth of WCOOP seats will be up for grabs.  Buy-ins start at just $7.50 and players can use Steps tickets and the Steps system to qualify.  Hundreds of seats are available, which means you have a real shot at winning a seat!  You could find yourself sitting with Team PokerStars Pros Chris Moneymaker and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier in one of the events of the biggest series to ever grace online poker.  Better yet, imagine winning your seat and finding yourself in last year’s Main Event winner Carter King’s position when he walked away with $1,265,432.23!
