The Poker Stars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) starts today, with a 33-event program that features 9 new events and a guaranteed prize pool of $30,000,000.

The 33 events have buy-ins ranging from $200+15 to $25,000+500 in all possible poker variants – along with plenty of Hold’em events there are also 5-card draw, PL Omaha, 7-card Stud, Razz and mixed events including HORSE.

All prize pools are guaranteed, and they range from $10,000 to a whopping $10,000,000 for the NL Hold’em Main Event; seven events have guaranteed prize pools of $1,000,000 or more.

PokerStars offers a wide array of daily satellites into various WCOOP events for those players who do not feel ready to fork out the buy-in money. Either way, the WCOOP is a very attractive online event for those looking to build up their online bankrolls – last year’s Main Event winner Ka$ino bagged a respectable $1,378,330 , and this year looks set to improve on that sum.

Below is a summary of the events with their buy in and guaranteed prize pool.
