The Daily SCOOP: Day 1 sets stage for $25m in guarantees, new web show

SCOOP logo.gifThe pizza delivery service is on speed dial. The fridge is full of Red Bull. There is a mouse-finger-massage therapist waiting in the next room. It begins in less than one hour.

The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is here.

At 10am ET, Day 1 will kick off two weeks of SCOOP events with three levels of No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max action. For as little as $22 or as much as $2,100, you can get in on the action in one of three buy-in levels. If you're getting home late, no worries. Registration will stay open for three hours.

If you prefer a full-ring game, SCOOP has you covered there, too. At 2pm ET, SCOOP will host a nine-handed no-limit hold'em event for the same price. Guarantees in that event run all the way up to a cool $1 million.

Of course, we'll have full coverage of SCOOP from beginning to end, starting with tomorrow's final tables. Be sure to check out the "All you need to know about SCOOP" post from a few days ago.

We are also happy to announce the launch of a brand new show that will run daily beginning tomorrow and airing through May 24. Inside SCOOP. The new half-hour show hosted by Nick Wealthall and Joe Stapleton will offer analysis and discussions on all the SCOOP action, interviews with PokerStars Team Pros and Team Online, and talks with SCOOP event winners. What's more, you can be a part of the show via live chat, Facebook, and Twitter. Inside SCOOP will also be hosting daily competitions with more than $10,000 in prizes.

Strap in, folks. It's time for SCOOP.
