WCOOP 2010: Looking to win another bracelet

With the WSOP behind us, all poker players look forward to the start of the biggest online tournament series of the year: the World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP). Since 2002, every September PokerStars is the place to be for tournament lovers. With tournaments in every variant of the game, buy-ins starting as low as $109, and countless satellites to the tournaments, the WCOOP offers an incredible chance for everyone to compete for the gold bracelets awarded to the winner. Oh, and let's not forget the staggering prize pools with over $50 million guaranteed spread across 62 tournaments.

For me personally, the start of the WCOOP brings back some amazing memories. Back in 2008, when I was too young to even play live in the US, I managed to beat a field of over 3,000 players to win my very own bracelet and over $135,000. A great night and something to always remember. This year I hope to be able to final table another event, hopefully even the WCOOP Main Event which has a staggering $10 million guaranteed price pool, but there are countless tournaments in the schedule that I am excited about.

If the buy-ins are a bit too high for you to buy-in directly, I would recommend trying your luck in the cash and FPP satellites as the WCOOP is your chance to play with the best, or maybe even prove you are the best!

Looking forward to see you at the tables, and check out more on the official WCOOP site.
