WCOOP Returns Sept. 7 on PokerStars with a $40M Prize Pool


The buzz for the 2014 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) at PokerStars has been building all summer long, and now that the series is finally just under a week away, players from all over the world are getting ready to join the action.

This amazing series takes place from September 7 until 28, and includes 66 events with at least $40 million in combined guaranteed prize pools.

The WCOOP is highlighted by a $10,000,000-guaranteed Main Event on September 28 with at least $1.5 million guaranteed to the winner.

This year's schedule includes many different no-limit hold'em tournaments, but those of you that like other games such as Omaha, stud, and badugi, are also in luck considering the wide variety of games with big guarantees on tap.

The first event starts this Sunday, September 7, and with satellites for the WCOOP running around the clock, there is still plenty of time to get into the events cheaply.

Here is a complete look at the 2014 WCOOP Schedule:
