The schedule features 82 action-packed events with over a breathtaking $50 million in combined guaranteed prize pools! The highlight of the festival is of course the two-day WCOOP Main Event on September 25-26, where for a $5,000 buy-in players will be competing for at least a share of $10 million!
Play in the 2016 WCOOP Main Event for FREE!
While the $5,000 buy-in for the WCOOP Main Event is likely too hefty a price tag for you to directly buy into, we have great news for you as you can work your way to a seat for free. Well, it's not exactly for free, but it's the next best thing as it will just cost you one StarsCoin to potentially play for millions of dollars.
PokerStars is hosting what's known as Mega-Path satellites around the clock starting at just one StarsCoin. If you win the first tournament, you can keep working up the seven steps of the path with the last event being the 125,000 StarsCoin Mega-Path Sat where if you are among the winners you will be awarded a seat to the $5,000 WCOOP Main Event.
If you have a bunch of StarsCoin saved up, you can skip any step along the path and directly buy-into any satellite. However, even if you just have a handful of StarsCoin, you can potentially keep winning until you find yourself playing for millions of dollars on September 25-26 in the WCOOP Main Event!
Satellites to Other WCOOP Events
The buy-ins in the 2016 WCOOP range from $109 to $102,000. We imagine that most if not all of these tournaments will likely be a stretch on your bankroll if not impossible to enter.
PokerStars has your back as satellites and sub-satellites to all of the tournaments on the schedule are running around the clock starting at just $0.22!
