WCOOP 2016: Your feedback requested

It's that time of year again, when I'm ready to share the tentative schedule for the annual World Championship of Online Poker with you, to let you know how things stand right now and to collect your feedback on what we've built so far.

We're up to Version 04 of this year's WCOOP schedule, and we're quite excited about what we're in the process of building, and I hope that you will be similarly excited. I'm looking forward to your feedback and thank you in advance for any and all constructive discussion(s) to come.

This year, there are actually two schedules to share, though I'll only be posting one for the time being, for reasons which I'll explain right now. The two schedules relevant to this year's series are as follows: 1 - WCOOP, the World Championship of Online Poker, and 2 - Mini-WCOOP, the micro-to-low-stake companion series we'll be running for the first time ever alongside WCOOP.

To get some questions and answers out of the way right from the beginning, I'll explain that Mini-WCOOP is not in any way intended to be another stakes level of WCOOP itself, but instead a companion series run at 1/100th of the buy-in of most WCOOP Events, at 1/1,000th for some, etc. Mini-WCOOP buy-ins range from $1.10 to $11 with the exception of the Mini-WCOOP Main Event, which will cost $50 to play. There will be an extremely limited selection of satellites to Mini-WCOOP Events, which will run on the same dates and at the same times, in the same formats, as the WCOOP Events which each one mirrors (thus the reason there's no need to post the schedule). Mini-WCOOP Events will not be in the WCOOP Events tab in the client, as they are not part of WCOOP proper.

All feedback can go to wcoop@pokerstars.com.

The tentative schedule is below.
