First look: 2016 SCOOP schedule first draft

The people behind the Spring Championship of Online Poker might have a career in politics.

Yesterday, for the first time, PokerStars players got to decide the format of one SCOOP event all on their own. It was democracy in action.

Now, in what amounts to a town hall meeting, you have a chance to check out the first public draft of the 2016 SCOOP schedule and be heard about it.

The concept is simple. See something you don't like or would like to tweak a little bit? Just let the SCOOP team know, and there's a chance your feedback could result in changing this schedule before it hits the PokerStars lobby.

We've posted the whole first draft of the schedule below. Give it a look, and if you have any feedback, email scoop@pokerstars.com. Keep in mind, the only thing set in stone here are the 12:00/13:00 slots on the weekend where some of the more niche games have been scheduled. Other than that, you're free to make suggestions on the formats and timings of anything else on the schedule.

Have fun!
