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 –

  • Phase Tournaments – newly introduced huge events with a wide variety. Buy-ins for Event 1 range from Low -$11, to Medium – $109, and High – $1,050. 
  • There will be three High Rollers (Events 15, 26, and 40). Buy-ins will begin at $1,050 and go up to $25,000.
  • The 'Win the Button’ format; introduced first in WCOOP 2016 will returns, adding to the diversity (Events10, 42 and 50).
  • Fun is there too, with one event having a Progressive 100% Knockout format. In this event, the full buy-in, minus the fee will be the bounty amount on every player. One can win this money only by knocking out opponents!

No matter what your choice, be it NLH, PLO, HORSE, RAZZ, Badugi, or Knockout, the SCOOP 2017 has something for all.

Yes, players will also have a Main Event in three layers – Low – $109, Medium – $1,050 and High – $10,300; opportunities to write their name forever in online poker history.
