On Thursday last week, PokerStars Blog revealed that this year's World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) will have a $51,000 buy-in Super High Roller event! There have been some $25,000 events in the past, but now WCOOP is going for the biggest ever with this upcoming Super High Roller event!
"Over the last few years we have seen the emergence of Super High Roller events at live events across the globe," said Team PokerStars Pro member Daniel Negreanu. "I think it only makes sense that the world's largest poker site is also the host of the largest buy-in online poker tournament ever. I'm excited to test my skills against the best of the best, online."
This year will mark the 14th consecutive WCOOP on PokerStars. In 2014, the series paid out more than $61,000,000! The $51k buy-in Super High Roller is scheduled for September 20, 2015, with a guaranteed prize pool of at least $1 million!
Another highlight will be the $10 million guaranteed Main Event ($5,200 buy-in) on September 27th. There are satellites for all 2015 WCOOP events for as little as $1!
