2010 PokerStars SCOOP Kicks Off on Sunday

At least $45 million will be up for grabs starting on Sunday, when the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) invades PokerStars. The three-tiered tournament series features low, medium, and high-dollar buy-in tournaments.

2010 marks the second running of the PokerStars SCOOP, which debuted last year amid much fanfare. In 2009, a total of $38 million was given away and the total number of player buy-ins approached 200,000. The inaugural SCOOP boasted 22 world-class poker events across three buy-in levels and players from the United States walked away with $20.6 million to lead all countries. Germany and Canada sat in second and third, respectively, on the money leaderboard with $3.3 million and $3.2 million.

Amazingly, two players recorded 15 in the money finishes in the 66 tournaments that comprised the 2009 SCOOP, a 23% success rate: Germany’s “pusteblume” and American “teacuppoker.” A total of 18 players cashed in at least 10 events. To close out the 2009 SCOOP, j.thaddeus took down the high-stakes Main Event to the tune of $963,000. At the mid-stakes level, tournament veteran J.C. “PrtyPsux” Alvarado brought home the gold for $502,000, while JannotLapin won the low-stakes SCOOP Main Event for $151,000.

The opening day of the 2010 SCOOP coincides with the final day of action in the 16th Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS), whose $640 buy-in Main Event begins at 18:00 ET on Sunday. In the 2010 SCOOP Main Event on May 16th, the winner will pocket a hearty $1 million. Here’s the full schedule of events for the upcoming SCOOP, exclusively found on PokerStars:
