PokerStars Confirms Official Spring Championship of Online Poker Schedule

                PokerStars previously released a placeholder version of the schedule for its upcoming Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). Now, after soliciting suggestions for improvements from its player base the company has finalized and released the official series details.
                The 2013 SCOOP will mark the fifth edition of the popular event and, as mentioned in the unofficial schedule, consist of 44 events. An impressive $40 million prize guarantee is up for grabs through the series' tiered buy-in events. As previously described, these three levels will allow all kinds of players to enter into the games, regardless of the size of their bankroll. Accordingly, the prize pot will range in size, the lowest amount doubling in size for the medium buy-in level and tripling for the highest. The three levels will also be reflected in the buy-ins, which range from $5.50 to $21,000. PokerStars promoted the tiered SCOOP design as providing "the only tournament series in the world to offer the same tournament at three different buy-in levels simultaneously." A statement detailing the series called SCOOP a great way for poker players of all stripes to "have fun competing for life-changing amounts of money."
                The 2013 Spring Championship of Online Poker will kick off on 12th May with a no-limit hold 'em six max tournament (buy-ins set at $27/$215/$2,100) and run for two weeks before concluding with 26th May's main event ($109/$1,050/$10,300).
