PokerStars Women, step your way to 2013 WCOOP
Unless you've been away from the Internet for a month or two, you probably know that the 2013 World Championship of Online Poker is about two weeks away. WCOOP is the largest online poker tournament series in the world, and players are trying their best to win their seats in the numerous satellites already in progress.
We wanted to make sure that the women of PokerStars have some opportunities to win WCOOP seats as well. Since we are committed to our female players, it seems only natural to announce the Women's WCOOP Steps Tickets Giveaway!
Free WCOOP Steps tickets? Oh, yes.
Between Sunday, August 25 and Saturday, August 31, play the Women's Sunday or any of the women's guaranteed tournaments. This includes the Women's Tuesday, Women's Daily and Nightly Specials, and the PLO Women tournaments. All players who make final tables in these events next week will receive a free WCOOP Step satellite ticket.
The women who final table the $55 Women's Sunday on August 25 will each receive a $27 WCOOP Step 2 ticket. All other PokerStars Women guaranteed events, whether the $11 Women's Tuesday or $1.10 PLO 6-Max Women event on Sunday, will award $7.50 WCOOP Step 1 tickets to all players at the final tables.
And since the Women's Daily Special and Women's Nightly Special run daily and nightly (of course), there are chances to win every day next week!
The 2013 WCOOP is going to be massive, with $40 million guaranteed over the course of the 66 tournaments. There is also the WCOOP Leader Board, which awards prizes for the players with the highest number of points throughout the Series. But there is a prize for the highest finishing female player as well. And that woman will win a 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Women's Event package worth $3,500.
So, gear up for a week of winning in preparation for the always-exciting WCOOP next month! The events begin on September 8 and run through September 29. Get started early and make a run at the Women's Player of the Series award!
