First look: PokerStars leaks tentative 2009 WCOOP schedule

ps_news_thn.jpgHold onto your shorts, folks. Holding? Okay. Here you go.

Forty million bucks guaranteed over 42 events.

That's the first word we're getting on the 2009 World Championship of Online Poker.

It probably comes as no surprise that the people who plan WCOOP just don't whip up a schedule in a couple of days in September. In fact, they're working on it right now. What's more, they want you to have a look at it before they start writing things in ink.

That's right. PokerStars wants to hear from you as it plans for the biggest online poker series in the world.

We have just been handed the tentative 2009 WCOOP schedule. Rather than sit here and love on it ourselves, we thought we'd put it in front of you as quickly as possible. So, here it is.

The PokerStars WCOOP team is ready for your feedback. You can send your comments directly to There will also undoubtedly be an ongoing forum discussion in the MTT community on the poker forum Two Plus Two. PokerStars routinely engages in conversations in an effort to give players their role in creating the best tournament series around.
