2011 PokerStars SCOOP countdown begins
Seventy-two hours before the launch of a space shuttle, engineers are called to their stations. Seventy-two hours before the beginning of the Spring Championship of Online Poker? Well, feel free to grab a snack or walk the dog. You still have some time.
However, now would be a good time to start laying in supplies (Red Bull, nacho cheese Bugles, and Nutter Butter cookies are good for long-haul snacking). In just 72 hours, SCOOP will kick off its third year as the biggest springtime poker series on the planet.
While we're waiting for the clock to tick down, here are some things to store away for those long nights in front of your machine.
Speaking of which, if you're looking for the best of the best, you might just look at the top ten all-time SCOOP money winners. We have that list right here:
Top 10 SCOOP all-time money-earners
1. toetagU ($1,191,872.76)
2. j.thaddeus ($1,076,963.54)
3. Sumpas ($856,664.99)
4. ragen70 ($748,558.81)
5. BradL ($644,230.57)
6. PearlJammer ($593,904.67)
7. $teveyMoney ($584,116.18)
8. cpfactor ($562,690.37)
10. SkÃ¤mmes ($546,525.28)
As always, the PokerStars Blog will have blow-by-blow coverage of every final table. That's right. From the $5.50 events to the $25,000 monsters, we will have wrap-ups of every final table (don't think we don't have our nacho cheese Bugles at the ready, too).
While we get paid in the pride of a job well done, you are the ones who will win the money...and a fairly snazzy watch.
T-Minus 72 hours and counting. Good luck.
