PokerStars 2014 World Championship of Online Poker Schedule

by | Published: Sunday, August 17th, 2014

Once again, the richest online poker tournament series in the world will be taking place in September.

pokerstars WCOOPLast week, Pokerstars Pokerstars released its schedule for the 2014 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), which will run from September 7 – 28. The annual online series will offer a variety of popular games and formats in 66 events with a total $40 million in guaranteed prize money.

The event kicks off with a $109 no-limit hold’em WCOOP event on Sunday, September 7 at 8:00 AM ET but the fun doesn’t stop there with two $215 no-limit hold’em events scheduled for opening day, including a Sunday Million special tournament with $1.5 million guaranteed.

As we’ve come to expect, the festival will be highlighted by a $5,200 buy-in Main Event with a $10 million guaranteed prize pool. The two-day Main Event will take place September 28-29 and, for the first time ever, the final will be broadcast live.

One of the most exciting additions to this year’s roster is the side promotion that will see four protégés win training from Team PokerStars Pros (Andre Akkari, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov, and Vanessa Selbst), and receive buy-ins to three events, including the $5,200 Main Event. The protégés will be voted for by the general public and can be followed on PokerStars’s facebook page.

Last year’s event was a complete success with PokerStars handing out more than $62 million across 66 events, crushing the $40 million in guarantees offered. The total number of tournament entrants across the series was 144,945, up nearly 15 percent on the 2012 total of 126,041.

Online qualifiers to all the 2014 events are now live, with cash buy-ins starting from less than $1 and Frequent Player Point satellites from just 1 FPP. Continue reading for a look at the 2014 WCOOP schedule (all times EDT): (more…)

2015 Aussie Millions Schedule Announced

by | Published: Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Last Friday, Crown Melbourne announced its schedule for the illustrious Aussie Millions Poker Championship in 2015. The series will kick off the New Year, beginning on Wednesday, January 14 and running through to Monday, February 2, 2015. It will consist of 21 events.

crown: aussie millions logoHeadlining the schedule will be the ever-popular Aussie Millions Main Event, which will run from Sunday, January 25 through to Sunday, February 1. The winner of the Main Event will take home an estimated AU$1.6 million. This is the same grand prize Ami Barer took home in this year’s event, which was an event to remember. Barer topped a field of 668 players, defeating Sorel Mizzi along with an entire final table of poker pros in a final day that lasted a grueling 12 hours.

Also returning to the schedule for another year are the mouth-watering big buy-in “Challenge” events, which include the: $25,000 Challenge, $100,000 Challenge, and LK Boutique $250,000 Challenge. These “Challenge” tournaments draw impressive numbers, which aren’t limited to the impressive Main Event. In 2014, the $25K Challenge received 65 entries, the $100K Challenge drew 76 entries, and Phil Ivey topped a field of 46 entries to take out the LK Boutique $250K Challenge.

“Crown Melbourne’s Aussie Millions Poker Championship has effectively become one of the top poker majors and a favorite amongst some of the most renowned players in the world,” said Crown Melbourne’s Director of Poker Jim Preston. “And the stage has never been brighter.”

In 2014, the Aussie Millions Main Event partnered with the PokerStars.net Asia-Pacific Poker Tour for the first time, and following a successful run it appears the partnership will remain in 2015. Because of the partnership, the Aussie Millions schedule has to be pushed back to begin later in January. This is to allow players the chance to compete in both the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and the Aussie Millions. The PCA is scheduled to take place from January 6-14 in 2015, which means players travelling on to Melbourne won’t miss the majority of the Aussie Millions schedule.
