The World Championship of Online Poker - WCOOP - 2016 - Promo graphic - 400 pixels wideEvent #28 of Pokerstars' WCOOP (World Championship of Online Poker) is the Super High-Roller tournament, which features a buy-in of $102,000 and a guaranteed prize pool of $2,000,000.

The $102,000 buy-in will be the biggest ever for an online poker tournament. Given the money that is at stake, the tournament is expected to attract many of the world's top high buy-in tournament players, including the likes of Fedor Holz, Jason Mercier and Mike McDonald.


BetStars, which is the sports betting arm of the Amaya Inc. online gaming operation, is offering up betting odds on the Super High-Roller tournament.

As of this moment, "RaiseOnce" and "JasonMercier" are the two favorites to win, as both men are listed at 14/1 to take down the tournament on Sunday. "RaiseOnce" is Phil Ivey's Pokerstars account.


Fedor Holz, who plays on Pokerstars as "CrownUpGuy" and is in the midst of an astounding tear on the live poker circuit, is listed at 16/1 to win. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, who continues to make frequent appearances at the high stakes cash game tables on Pokerstars, is 22/1 to win.
