Spring fever is here and even PokerStars seems caught up in it, while announcing the schedule of the annual festival – Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). The news was posted on the PokerStars official blog and begins by saying, “The weather is warming, trees are coming into leaf, and flowers are budding.” If you think the site has gone bonkers, well; that is exactly what SCOOP does to the best of players!
And, this time the madness is all set to last an extra week, as it will run from April 30 to May 23. This extra week will alone be for Event 1(Phase 1 from April 30 to May 6).
In case you are wondering, up for grabs is a gigantic guaranteed prize pool of $55 Million across 57 action-filled Events! This is $15,000,000 more than that at the SCOOP 2016, making this year’s series the largest in the history of online poker!
One of the largest online series, SCOOP is widely awaited by all types of players, pros, wannabes, or recreational ones. The festival has it all, guts, glory and highly satisfying rewards.
The best part are the three layers for the same event – low, medium and high, allowing players to pick what suits their budget! Which other series gives buy-ins ranging from as meager as $5.50 (low), $55 (medium), to $530 (high)!
There are some interesting changes too and these include –
No matter what your choice, be it NLH, PLO, HORSE, RAZZ, Badugi, or Knockout, the SCOOP 2017 has something for all.
