It’s the most prestigious online series of the year and 2021 will be the biggest guarantee ever – the spectacular $ 100 million GTD World Championship of Online Poker starting next month!
The WCOOP, as it is affectionately known, is celebrating its 20th anniversary on PokerStars next month (preferred to avoid conflict with the WSOP) and has grown tremendously since its inception in 2002.
This inaugural series featured nine events totaling over $ 730,000 in total prizes, with the main event winner – Sweden’s Multimarine – receiving a grand prize of $ 65,450.
Compare that to last year when players had 75 events to choose from in each of the three buy-in bands and Dutch player PTFisherman23 won $ 1,147,270 for winning the $ 10 million GTD Main Event!
The 2021 WCOOP, which runs from August 22 to September 15 this year, promises to be bigger and better, with a guaranteed $ 100 million in 225 tournaments.
That’s a huge increase from last year’s $ 80 million GTD series, but the massive number hasn’t been created out of nowhere – the prize money that actually came out last year was a tempting $ 99.9 million Dollar!
With the exact details of events, buy-ins and dates to be published in the next few weeks, we will keep you up to date on all the news from the WCOOP on these pages. So check back regularly!
