The schedule for the biggest online tournament series in Pennsylvania, PASCOOP, is up revealing a record total guaranteed prize pool of $2 million spread across 100 individual tournaments.

The first-ever PASCOOP will start April 4 and run for over two weeks until April 20.

The series will follow the same structure as PokerStars’ SCOOP series in the dot-com market, with High and Low buy-in tiers for all the events.

This means that there will be two Main Events in the series: A $50 buy-in Low Main Event guaranteeing $50,000 and a $300 buy-in High Main Event boasting $200,000 in guaranteed prize money.

The $200,000 guaranteed prize money will be the biggest guaranteed online tournament in the market.

Both events are scheduled to take place simultaneously at 17:00 ET on April 19.

More Details About PASCOOP 2020

For the PASCOOP series, PokerStars PA has focused on the low end with buy-ins starting at a very accessible price point at $5 and going up to as high as $500. The average buy-in across the series is around $74—much lower than the Bounty Builder Series held a month ago.

Apart from the two Main Events, other standout events include the Sunday Special SE boasting $70,000 in guaranteed prize money—the second-biggest of the series. Players can enter for a buy-in of $100.

Also, included in the schedule for the first time are two Phase events with buy-ins of $10 and $100. These Phase events feature multiple Day 1s and run throughout the series. The $10 buy-in Phase event guarantees $10,000 and the $100 buy-in guarantees $50,000.

The remaining schedule includes a wide variety of different formats and structures. Variants other than the fan-favorite No Limit Hold’em include PLO, NLO8, 8-Game, and Stud Hi/Lo. All these variants come in different formats such as progressive knockouts, Marathon and Escalating Antes, heads-up, 4-max, and more.

PASCOOP will be the operator’s fourth online tournament series and third of this year. It will be four times bigger than the Bounty Builder Series held last month and nearly $800,000 bigger than the previous biggest series—PACOOP—which was the operator’s first-ever series in Pennsylvania.

It is also the operator’s biggest guaranteed series in the US regulated market.

One of these promotions is a Main Event Depositor Freeroll that will award 50 Main Event seats worth $15,000:

How Does PASCOOP Compare with NJSCOOP?

While PASCOOP kicks off a week earlier on April 4, NJSCOOP is scheduled to take place from April 11—meaning the series will partially overlap. Both the series run for 17 days.

Considering that Pennsylvania is a bigger market than New Jersey, guarantees are larger in Pennsylvania than the Garden State.

PASCOOP has 66.7% bigger overall guaranteed prize pool than NJSCOOP which guarantees a total of $1.2 million. The average guarantee per event is also bigger in Pennsylvania than in the Garden State. The number of tournaments on each schedule is more or less the same.
