2007 WCOOP Main Event Underway

The 2007 World Championship of Online Poker main event has just kicked off as the richest tournament in online poker history. Nearly 3,000 players are now set to battle for a nearly $7.5 million prize pool.

It's impossible to say what's going to happen over the next 15 hours or so. When the final table hits, players will be looking at a first prize of nearly $1.4 million. There stands a decent chance that we could see online poker's biggest tournament cash ever. An unchopped first prize will award the winner nearly $1.4 million.

As the event gets underway, players begin with 20,000 in chips and will be playing 30 minute levels. To watch, click on "Events" and "WCOOP" in your PokerStars lobby.

Good luck to everyone in the event. We'll see you on the other side.
