SCOOP is here! SCOOP is here!

scoop2009_thn.gifIf the headline did not tip you off, the news of the day is the fact that SCOOP is, indeed, here.

A mere 49 hours from now, the 2010 Spring Championship of Online Poker will begin. On just the first day, PokerStars is guaranteeing nearly $7 million in prize money.

Across the globe, Red Bull sales have spiked. Snack food stores have been depleted such that Frito Lay has declared a state of emergency. No matter where you look over the next couple of weeks, you simply won't find bigger poker tournaments. It's going to be a hoot.

We here at the PokerStars Blog are all geared up and ready to go. We'll be recapping every final table (yes, there are 114 of them), so you can wake up in the morning and see who is wallowing around in life changing money.

So, get some rest over the next two nights, because it all begins Sunday. We'll see you there.
