PokerStars Releases Finalized WCOOP 2016 Schedule

Pokerstars has released the finalized version of this year's WCOOP (World Championship of Online Poker) schedule.

The tournament series will run from September 4th to September 26th and feature over 80 events. For the first time ever, PokerStars is also going to run a "Mini-WCOOP" that will follow the schedule for WCOOP, with the buy-in for each Mini-WCOOP Event being at 1/100th.

The finalized schedule also confirms the largest buy-in tournament in online poker history as the $102,000 buy-in Super High Roller event is set to kick off on Sunday, September 11th:

We're running this companion series to give everyone the chance to take part in the WCOOP experience, while rightfully keeping a respectable distance from the Events of WCOOP proper. Meanwhile, within WCOOP and at the extreme high end of the buy-in scale, we're running a $102,000 Super High-Roller Event, which is the largest buy-in online tournament in history and right at home, I believe, in the most prestigious online poker series found anytime, anywhere.

The 2016 WCOOP will also see the elimination of 2nd Chance tournaments and WCOOP bracelets. According to PokerStars, the vast majority of players have made it clear that "going after a bracelet is not something which motivates them to play the series".
