Get Ready For the Biggest WCOOP Series Yet
2019 celebrates 17 years in business for the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). And this year promises to be the best year yet in the history of the tour. PokerStars is the mastermind behind the stroke of genius, and from 5 to 25 September will bring the biggest tournament to date to the world’s largest online Poker room. It’s all Poker all the time, and it’s going to be a flaring ripper the likes of which the global online gaming community has not yet seen.
A total of 73 events will be played, spread out over 3 tiers. That’s exactly 219 opportunities to enter the global arena of Poker world champions and show one’s steel and worth. Even better yet is the fact that this year, PokerStars will be putting up guaranteed prize money totalling $75 million. That’s a sweltering $5 million more than last year. The world’s largest Poker room means business and let no man or woman dispute the fact.
Giving To Those In Need
But this year, for the first time ever, the focus won’t be solely on the game or even on the players. The operator wants to do its bit for the selfless service of others. It plans on doing this by contributing the $5 registration fees to the $55 buy-in $400,000 GTD Mini Sunday Million Edition to its in-house charity, namely Right to Play.
Right to Play raises funds in aid of disadvantaged children all over the world. The funds are allocated towards everything from basic food necessities to primary school education. Last year alone, the initiative managed to raise $50,000. The money enabled 1,660 disadvantaged children to go to school for an entire year.
Everyone Has The Right To Play
UFC fans will be overjoyed to know that there are also 4 UFC events involved in this year’s WCOOP line-up. Winners of the 4 UFC-branded events will each walk away with 2 tickets for UFC244 in New York City.
PokerStars really has ensured that there is something for everyone. There are events for players with limited bankrolls, and there are also events catering for players with exceptionally deep pockets. At the end of the day, its all about affording everyone who wants to play, the opportunity to play. And so, in many ways, the entire tournament is all about everyone’s “right to play” a hand or two of Poker.
