2017 WCOOP schedule released

Check out the 81 WCOOP High and 81 WCOOP Low events which take place next month.

WCOOP 2017

The 2017 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) takes place between September 3 and 25.

As mentioned yesterday there will also be a WCOOP Low series during the festival, and today we can reveal the full schedule for each.

This year there will be 81 events in each series, culminating in a $5,200 Main Event for WCOOP High (with a $10 million guarantee) and a $215 Main Event for WCOOP Low, both on September 24. 

The biggest buy-ins will be a pair of $25,000 Hold'em and PLO events, with the prestigious $10,300 8-Game Mix being the third biggest. Noticeably absent this year is the $100,000 Super High Roller event from 2016 (which was a $50,000 Super High Roller event in 2015). 

No word yet on guarantees other than the Main Event.

Other changes

Win WCOOP tickets by opening chests

As mentioned yesterday there are a number of additional changes to the structures and promotions taking place this year.

In order to ease on operational stress, there will be no flexibility on WCOOP satellite wins. You have to play in the WCOOP event you won a ticket for, you cannot play an equivalent buy-in event with it. If you win more than one seat you get T$ for the additional win in most cases (but with some exceptions). 

WCOOP Low events will start with 25,000 chips and WCOOP High events will start with 50,000. There will be $700,000 worth of WCOOP seats to be won in PokerStars Chests and there will also be a non-Hold'em leaderboard this year.
