Summer heat in poker world is just another synonym for the mouth-watering international online buffet, with the SCOOP 2016, which is now just another 10 weeks away. PokerStars has decided to whet player appetites by releasing a draft of the 15-day long schedule on the popular twoplustwo.com forum. The online feast will run from May 8 to the 22 and will feature a string of 59 delicacies, including the regular and new events that will be seen for the first time at SCOOP.

Quoting the thread post, “Guarantees and multi-day settings will be announced when the Events are deployed to the PokerStars client in early April.

What was confirmed though, was that the Main Events would be a three-day affair. Buy-ins for most of the events range from $7.50 to $2,100 for low to high categories, catering to all kinds of budgets. The big exception is Event 54-H – NL Hold’em Main Event which has a $10,300 buy-in, with a guarantee of a whopping $4,000,000 and $1 Million guaranteed to the champion. Players will find a variety of game formats, from the standard NLH, PLO to 7-Card Stud, HORSE, Razz and Badugi.

PokerStars has invited players to give their feedback on the tentative schedule and added another post on the twoplustwo forums with pointers explaining the new and unfamiliar events and the processes for the same! Here are some relevant clarifications made on the new additions, by PokerStars.

1. Players will submit suggestions to us via a process that will be strictly defined in the near future.

2. The top X number of suggestions will be identified.

3. A tournament with a $0.02 buy-in representing each potential format will be deployed to the PokerStars client – for voting purposes only. These tournaments will not play.

4. Players will vote for their favorite choice among the poll tournaments, being able to register for only one of the available choices.

5. At the end of the voting period, the tournament with the highest number of registered players will be the format which will become Event 15.

6. We’ll destroy the poll tournaments so that everyone who put their two cents in gets their money back. 🙂
