Pokerfuse is helping PokerStars give away tickets to the 2020 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). The highly prestigious online poker tournament series is running now through September 23 with millions in guaranteed cash prizes still available to be won.

In total, over $2000 in WCOOP tickets are up for grabs including entries to the $2 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event M, the $1.25 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event L, and several $11 WCOOP tournament tickets that can be used to enter a variety of WCOOP events.

The prizes will be distributed to both new and existing PokerStars account holders, but to be eligible to win, you must have access to the PokerStars international player pool (sorry New Jersey and Pennsylvania players, check back when your COOP events are running and hopefully we have a special giveaway for your region).

  • As severe cases of Covid-19 continue rising, particularly among young, pregnant women, monoclonal antibody treatments are being made available for all pregnant women who have tested positive for the virus, in addition to other high-risk patients, such as the elderly or those with underlying medical conditions.
  • WCOOP 2020 Finishes Strong, Generating Almost $100 Million in Prize Money. Another near-nine-figure WCOOP is in the books, with a Main Event miss a rare black mark in a very strong final week. Tue, Sep 22, 2020.
  • The WCOOP tournament series is the largest of its kind on the Internet. The fifteen WCOOP events in 2005 generated $12,783,900 in prize money, making it not only the biggest ever online poker event, but the third biggest poker series (live or online) in all of 2005. citation needed.
  • WCOOP is held all over the world in various locations. With more than 45 different events, it is important to plan accordingly if you have made into the tournament. Usually, Vegas is high on the list of places, allowing players to enjoy other casinos in the area, as well as great buffets, shows, concerts, and more.

Ok, there are two ways to try to claim a WCOOP ticket, and if you are one of the lucky ones, perhaps you will be able to parlay into a much larger payday. Afterall, the $2 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event (Event #72-M) pays out just over 23% of the prize pool to the first-place finisher while the winner of the $1.25 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event (Event #71-L) will collect approximately 17.6% of the prize pool. So you could end up turning a free ticket into $460,000 if you bink the WCOOP Main Event M or $220,000 if you take down the Main Event L, and those numbers could get even higher if the tournaments end up exceeding their guarantees.
