Earlier this week, PokerStars released the schedule for the 2010 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), unveiling a line-up with 50% more tournaments than last year’s edition.  The inaugural SCOOP in 2009 was a smash hit, attracting almost 200,000 players across 22 triple-tiered events.  $30 million in prize pools were guaranteed, but the popularity of the tournament series actually created over $40 million in prize money.  What differentiates SCOOP from other online tournament series – including the granddaddy of them all, PokerStars’ World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) – is that each event is comprised of three separate tournaments.  All three are the same game and run at the same time, but each has a different buy-in, giving players at all stakes a chance to compete.  This year, $36 million are guaranteed to be paid out from May 3rd through May 16th.  It all ends with the No-Limit Hold’em Main Event, with buy-ins of $109, $1,050, and $10,300.  Last year, over 22,000 players competed in the three Main Events, with almost 19,000 in the low buy-in tournament.
