The 2018 WCOOP will have low, medium and high buy-ins

The schedule for the World Championship of Online Poker is out with $116 million guaranteed, six PSPC Passes and three buy-in levels.


September 2-17 will mark the latest incarnation of the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) and this year it will follow the same format as the Spring Championship of Online Poker with low, medium and high buy-in levels. 

182 tournaments spread across 61 events with $116 million guaranteed, including six Platinum Passes being given away (no word yet on how). 

The only exception to the three tiers is the Main Event, which will be low ($55 with a $1 million guarantee) and high ($5,200 with a $10 million guarantee). The biggest single buy-in will be a $25,000 High Roller with a $2 million guarantee. 

Spin & Go satellites for the series are about to take place, with nightly $55 satellites which boast 22 $5,200 Main Event seats being added to the prize pool. 

"Each year, players from around the world come together at PokerStars to battle it out in the WCOOP," said Director of Poker Innovation and Operations, Severin Rasset. "The three-tier buy-in system that we have introduced this year means that everyone can enjoy the WCOOP action over 16 days, giving everyone a shot at becoming a PokerStars world champion of online poker."
