SCOOP 2012: Plan ahead with downloadable schedules

Thumbnail image for SCOOP logo.gifI'm not one to preach. I'm a laissez faire kinda guy. You live the life you want. If you feel like pretending the Spring Championship of Online Poker doesn't exist until it begins on May 6, I say more power to ya. Go in blind if you want to. However, if you're a planner and would like to map your course for the next few weeks, there are a few buttons you can press to make that happen.

By now, you probably know SCOOP kicks off in a couple of weeks with 40 events with $30 million in guarantees and 120 different tournaments. It's kind of a big deal.

With 120 different tourneys playing out over two weeks, putting together a winning plan is probably a little more difficult than your average tournament series. Fortunately, the smart people behind the scenes at PokerStars have made it pretty easy for you.

Here's what you do:

Click on the 2012 SCOOP Tournaments page. There you will see the SCOOP schedule in all its glory. It looks just like this.


Now, look just a little bit closer.

In the top right corner of that schedule, you will see three little clickable buttons. If you click the first one, it will download an Outlook (ICS) version of the SCOOP schedule for you. The second button gives you a version that will fit perfectly into you Google calendar. Finally, if you press the third button, you get a handy dandy printable version for you refrigerator.


Now, if you're anything like me, once you start planning, you won't want to stop. To make it a little easier on you, here are some more helpful links:

  • Research past SCOOP winners
  • Brush up on past SCOOP statistics
  • Plan your attack on the SCOOP leaderboard
