2007 WCOOP: More than $3 million at stake
Just a few minutes ago, one of the biggest events in online poker history kicked off. The 2007 WCOOP Event #14, $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em, started with an astounding 3,325 players and a prize pool of $3,325,000. In the event someone wins this tournament outright, they will win $580,000.
Starting with $15,000 in chips and half hour levels, the people who eventually make the final table of this event will need lots of caffeine. In talking with some of the greater minds behind these things, I'm told we could expect a final table to begin between 8am-9am ET.
Yeah, tomorrow morning.
Regardless of how long it takes, this is going to be one of the most fun tournaments to watch of the entire tournament series. If you'd like to follow along, open your PokerStars software, and click on Events, WCOOP, and Main Events.
