This year's SCOOP will have a total of $55 million in total guaranteed prize money, which is a full $15 million more than last year's event.
According to Pokerstars, there will be three "High Roller" events as well as a vast array of different tournament types, including "Win The Button", "Progressive KO" and "Bubble Rush" tournaments.
The first event of this year's SCOOP will last a full week and will feature "phase tournaments" with buy-ins of $11, $109 and $1,050. The rest of the SCOOP schedule will get underway on Sunday, May 7th with SCOOP #2, which will feature No Limit Hold'em tournaments with buy-ins of $11, $109 and $1,050.

The SCOOP is popular with professional players who are looking to sharpen their games ahead of the World Series of Poker, which gets underway in late May.
Many top players who call the United States home will be flying outside of the country to play in this year's SCOOP event before travelling to Las Vegas for the WSOP.
