WCOOP schedule and notes

With less than a month until PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker begins, I decided to take a little look at how signups were going. It only takes a quick glance at the sign-up list to determine a few things. First, the 15 days of WCOOP are going to be rich with players and money. Second, if you play, you could very well be competing against some of the most well-known players and enthusiasts in the world. Just a cursory scan of the events shows Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, Chris "Money800" Moneymaker, Evelyn "evybabee" Ng, and Wil Wheaton, all of Team PokerStars.

Satellites of just about every type are available in PokerStars' tournament lobby now. You can win into events for just a few bucks or, even better, your Frequent Player Points.

Below you'll find a schedule of all the events with their dates, buy-ins, and guarantees (in bold).
