The longest Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) ever to be held is approaching, offering an extra week of phase tournaments. Organizer PokerStars has just released the schedule of the series to take place between April 30 and May 23.
The three levels of buy-in will be $11, $109, and $1,050, respectively. The total guaranteed prize pool amounts to a minimum of $55 million for the duration of the entire series. That is a $15 million increase from what was offered last year.
There will also be three high roller tournaments with buy-ins starting from $1,050 and reaching $25,000.
The Main Event will cost $109, $1,050, or $10,300 to participate depending on the buy-in level. In addition, the most expensive event promises to be number 15, requiring $25,000 to enter.
Notable SCOOP winners in the past include Jason Mercier (2016) and Jude Ainsworth who triumphed in the inaugural year of the series, 2009.
