WCOOP 2013: Player of Series worth a bundle

Let's do some math, shall we? We're going to need some numbers. So, let's just pull a few out of a hat.

$15,000

$700

$10,300

$5,200

There we go!

Alright, what shall we do with them? I say we add them up. Grab your calculator or a very big abacus. Or, if you like, just let me do it for you. Here you go:

$31,200

What does that represent? That's the approximate worth of the Player of the Series title for the upcoming World Championship of Online Poker.

I can hear you saying, "Approximate? How do you figure?"

Well, it goes like this. First place in the Leader Board race gets the following:

  • 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) package: Worth ~$15,000
  • 2014 SCOOP Main Event (H) ticket: Worth $10,300
  • 2014 WCOOP Main Event ticket: Worth $5,200
  • 2014 TCOOP Main Event ticket: Worth $700
  • Oh, and you also get a trophy. All in all, it's going to be worth more than $31,200, and that's on top of whatever you might win on the way to the title.
