Though the focus of the poker world was on the start of the World Series of Poker Main Event last week, there is life after the Rio.  One of the events players look forward to each year is the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), hosted by PokerStars.  Essentially the online WSOP, the WCOOP has kept growing and growing since its debut in 2002.  PokerStars has released a preliminary schedule for this fall’s WCOOP, increasing the number of events by more than a third over last year.
The 2010 WCOOP is slated to begin on Sunday, September 5th and conclude on Sunday, September 26th with the $5,200 buy-in Main Event.  Each day will feature either two or three different tournaments, with 62 total events to be played over the three week poker festival.  PokerStars will announce more information about the schedule, including guaranteed prize pools, at a later date.
Almost $52 million in prize money was awarded during the 2009 WCOOP, with over $1.7 million of it going to the Main Event winner, Yevgeniy “Jovial Gent” Timoshenko.
