Qualify For The WCOOP Main Event for Free with PokerNews
Download PokerStars and earn 150 VPPs from August 1 to 21 to play in three exclusive freerolls with WCOOP Main Event tickets and cash prizes up for grabs.
The PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) is the biggest online festival in the world, and the $5,200 main event guarantees at least $1 million to the eventual winner. Last year POTTERPOKER took down the WCOOP main event for $2,278,097 - the biggest online poker tournament prize in history.
PokerNews and PokerStars have come together once again to send three lucky players to play in the $5,200 WCOOP Main Event on September 25, in three exclusive freerolls worth $22,500. Anyone else who makes the final table of our three freerolls, but misses out on the tickets, will win cash prizes distributed as per PokerStars' standard payout structure.
