World Championship of Online Poker 2019 Will Run From September 5th to September 25th

The upcoming Online Championship promises to be bigger and better than ever.Earlier today, Pokerstars revealed the dates for the upcoming 2019 WCOOP (World Championship of Online Poker).

The tournament series will begin on September 5th and conclude on September 25th. Pokerstars promises that this year's WCOOP will be "bigger and better".

According to Pokerstars, the $5,200 main event will conclude on September 25th. In addition, Pokerstars said that there will be Low and High tiers for the main event.


2018's WCOOP had a total of 186 events, with each tournament featuring a Low, Medium and High buy-in.

There were a total of 1 million entries last year, which ended up creating a total prize pool of roughly $100 million. Pokerstars will have to work hard to top last year's event, though they seem intent on doing so.

Last year's $5,200 main event was won by "wann2play", who outlasted a field of 2,044 entries to take down a first place prize of over $1.3 million.


While sites like partypoker and America's Cardroom have done very well lately with some of their biggest events (such as the $5 million Venom), there is no doubt that Pokerstars is still the 800 pound gorilla of the industry, and I have a feeling that they are going to put some large guarantees into place for this year's WCOOP.
