PokerStars releases first draft of WCOOP schedule

How much do you know about the upcoming World Championship of Online Poker?

For instance, you've heard this year's WCOOP Main Event will have a $10 million guarantee, right? If not, please make sure to add @PokerStarsBlog to your Twitter feed. We told you weeks ago. Listen up!

Now, if you have any serious feelings about WCOOP, is the time to play close attention.

What we have below is the first draft of the 2015 WCOOP schedule, and it is...different than you might expect.

If you like it, tell us. If you hate it, tell us. This thing isn't set in stone yet, and your opinions could make the difference in what the final version (due to come out in a month or so) looks like.

For instance, what do you think of the new $2,100 events for the non-hold'em variants? How about that kick-off phase tournament? Let us know what you think by emailing wcoop@pokerstars.com.

The full draft schedule is below.
