Three years ago, the people at PokerStars devised a little experiment. With the already successful World Championship of Online Poker a firm fixture in the early autumn, PokerStars wanted to try something different in the spring. The idea went like this: create a tournament series like WCOOP, but give everybody a chance to play for championship titles. They called it theSpring Championship of Online Poker, better known as SCOOP, a tournament series with buy-ins for every bankroll.
