What is SCOOP?
The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is a unique tournament series that plays out each event three times simultaneously. These three tournaments each carry a different buy-in; low, medium and high.

For example, the Main Event of this year's SCOOP is as follows:

Low - $109 buy-in, $1 million guaranteed prize pool
Medium - $1,050 buy-in, $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool
High - $10,300 buy-in, $2.5 million guaranteed prize pool

This means that all players can take part without putting too much of a dent in their bankroll. However, if even the lower buy-ins are too much for you then there are numerous ways to qualify for the SCOOP.


How to qualify
PokerStars Step Tickets make it easier than ever to qualify for big buy-in events. Many of the buy-ins are the same as the PokerStars Steps system ($7.50, $27, $82, $215, $700 and $2,100).

With Steps, you can play a range of Sit & Go tournaments to make your way up the ladder and gain more valuable Steps tickets. For example, you could begin with a Step 1 500FPP (Frequent Player Point) SnG that awards a Step 2 ticket to the winner. The 2nd and 3rd place finishers receive a Step 1 ticket to try again and the 4th placed player will receive $1.50.

In addition, you can find many more SCOOP satellites in the PokerStars lobby under Tourney > Satellites or Sit & Go > Satellites > Events
