PokerStars SCOOP Satellites Underway

Posted at 12:15 2011-03-16

It seems like the virtual felt is relentlessly taking over the poker world, offering millions in prize money in some of the best championship events the world has to offer, and that tradition will continue as PokerStars brings the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) back to our computer screens in 2011.

With the 2011 SCOOP schedule recently released, poker enthusiasts will need to mark down May 8th-May 22nd in their diaries and start preparing their strategies to become poker champions and instant millionaires.

Last year it was Ryan “toetagu” Fair who took down the biggest tournament of the 2010 SCOOP, earning himself over $1 million dollars in the process and this year promises to offer scores just as hefty in size.

The 2011 SCOOP promises a massive $45 million in guarantees, with 38 events across several disciplines of poker, including two-day events. But, what separates SCOOP from all the other tournament series on the Internet?

The difference between the SCOOP and other similar online championships is the buy-in levels offered. While most big poker tournament series will only offer one set buy-in level, often only catering for those with big bankrolls, the SCOOP is a little different, offering three buy-in levels, running simultaneously, for wallets of every size.

Each event on the schedule will offer a “low”, “mid” and “high” event with buy-ins generally starting with the low event at roughly 1/10 of the medium, and the medium 1/10 of the high event. Of course there is no reason to only play one buy-in level, considering if you run like Erik Seidel, you could potentially take down three SCOOP titles in one day.

The series will come to it gripping conclusion with the SCOOP Main Event on the 22nd of May, with over $9 million in guarantees offered in the two-day event across the three buy-in levels.
