  • PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker 2011

    Tuesday, April 26th, 2011 by t2admin

PokerStars has been making several small tweaks to the 2011 Spring Championship of Online Poker, but the event is still scheduled to begin on May 8th 2011. PokerStars will host a total of 38 events at the 2011 SCOOP and each event will have 3 different tournaments. Players can choose to play in the low, medium or high stake tournament for each event based on how much you want to risk.

There is a total of $25 million in guaranteed prize money up for grabs during the 2011 SCOOP and the main event alone will have almost $5 million in guaranteed prizes. The 2011 SCOOP main event will boast a buy-in of $109 (Low), $1050 (Medium) or $10,300 (High), which means almost everyone will be able to afford a seat into at least the low buy-in main event.

The majority of the 2011 SCOOP tournaments will be NL Holdem, but other poker games will be played during the SCOOP including 5 Card Draw, 7 Card Stud, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Triple Stud, Triple Draw, Razz, 8-Game, HORSE and Badugi. You can qualify for all of the 38 SCOOP events right now by playing in any of the PokerStars SCOOP satellites.

During the 2011 SCOOP PokerStars will be keeping track of a leaderboard. In order to earn points on the leaderboard players need to simply cash in any of the SCOOP tournaments. The top 3 players on the 2011 PokerStars SCOOP leaderboard will win huge prizes including packages to the 2011 WCOOP, 2012 PCA and EPT Grand Final.

PokerStars announced that they’ll be changing the starting time of the SCOOP tournaments this year to accommodate European players. USA players can’t play at PokerStars anymore, so PokerStars decided to change the SCOOP event times to accommodate European players better this year. You still have twelve days to earn your seat into as many SCOOP tournaments as you can, so make sure you take advantage of the inexpensive satellites while they’re still running.

PokerStars SCOOP Reload Bonus

PokerStars is running a SCOOP promotion right now that’ll reward existing PokerStars players with the chance to earn a reload bonus.

The bonus will go into your pending bonus balance and be released in $10 increments. In order to clear the SCOOP reload bonus players need to earn 20 VPP’s for every $1.
