1
The first-ever PokerStars PASCOOP features $2 million in guaranteed prize money.

PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is coming to Pennsylvania. The first-ever PASCOOP is set to take place from April 4-20 with a massive $2 million in guaranteed prize money.

The online poker series, which starts next Saturday, has 50 events on the schedule. Just like the 2020 New Jersey SCOOP series, Pennsylvania’s will also feature both a “High” and a “Low” buy-in, for a total of 100 tournaments, with buy-ins ranging from as little as $5 up to $500.

Of course, the schedule is heavily weighted to No Limit Hold’em events of different varieties. Standard tournaments are broken up with the addition of Progressive Knockouts, 6-Max and 8-Max events, Zoom, Big Antes and Hyper-Turbos among other formats. Other poker disciplines are also represented throughout the schedule. Pot Limit Omaha, 8-Game, Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo, and No Limit Omaha 8 players will all get their own PASCOOP title events to battle over.

Record-Setting Main Event

The series will build to a pair of two-day Main Events that start on April 19. The Main Event High carries a $300 buy-in with a $200,000 guarantee, making it twice as big as the 2020 NJSCOOP Main Event. The PASCOOP Main Event Low offers a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool for just a $50 buy-in.

The $200,000 guarantee on the Main Event High is likely to set a record PokerStars PA. Even though every online poker series the company has run has been overwhelmingly successful, they have yet to see Main Event in PA hit $200,000.

Back in December, the debut of the PokerStars Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker included a Main Event with a $100,000 guarantee. After seeing how players were smashing their original projections early in the series, PokerStars gave the tournament a ‘guarantee boost’ and bumped it up to $125,000. That number was no problem as a total of 640 entries pushed the PACOOP Main Event prize pool to over $179,000, making it the largest MTT in PA’s brief history in regulated online poker.

It should be no surprise that PokerStars is being aggressive with PASCOOP. Since Day 1, players in the Keystone State have shown a healthy appetite for online poker, routinely beating guarantees in special online series as well as the weekly Sunday Majors. Add to that the current situation surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and the online site, which remains the only online poker operator in Pennsylvania, has seen a surge of players logging on and taking shots in online tournaments.

Helping put people into the Main Event virtual seats are non-stop qualifiers with guaranteed seats running the entire week leading up to the start of PASCOOP as well as throughout the series. In addition to the super satellites, PokerStars is offering a $15K Main Event Depositor Freeroll on April 19 with 50 total seats being given away to the $300 Main Event High.

In addition to the 100 tournaments of the series, for players who enter any PASCOOP event but fall short of the cash, PokerStars will be running Daily $1K Second Chance All-In Shootout Freerolls. You get entered and those lucky enough to win a series of all-in hands will have some money put back in their bankrolls.

The debut of PokerStars’ PASCOOP is on Saturday, April 4. Here’s the entire 100 event schedule.
