Pokerfuse is helping PokerStars give away tickets to the 2020 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). The highly prestigious online poker tournament series is running now through September 23 with millions in guaranteed cash prizes still available to be won.
In total, over $2000 in WCOOP tickets are up for grabs including entries to the $2 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event M, the $1.25 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event L, and several $11 WCOOP tournament tickets that can be used to enter a variety of WCOOP events.
The prizes will be distributed to both new and existing PokerStars account holders, but to be eligible to win, you must have access to the PokerStars international player pool (sorry New Jersey and Pennsylvania players, check back when your COOP events are running and hopefully we have a special giveaway for your region).
Ok, there are two ways to try to claim a WCOOP ticket, and if you are one of the lucky ones, perhaps you will be able to parlay into a much larger payday. Afterall, the $2 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event (Event #72-M) pays out just over 23% of the prize pool to the first-place finisher while the winner of the $1.25 million guaranteed WCOOP Main Event (Event #71-L) will collect approximately 17.6% of the prize pool. So you could end up turning a free ticket into $460,000 if you bink the WCOOP Main Event M or $220,000 if you take down the Main Event L, and those numbers could get even higher if the tournaments end up exceeding their guarantees.
WCOOP Ticket Giveaway #1
This giveaway is for those that do not yet have an account on PokerStars, so if you are already a PokerStars player, skip down to WCOOP Ticket Giveaway #2 to find out how you can win, but before you do, ping one of your friends that isn’t yet a PokerStars player and be sure to let them know how they can get a chance to win a WCOOP Event 72-M Ticket which could lead to winning nearly half-a-million dollars – they may be quite grateful.
For this giveaway, PokerStars will provide three lucky people with a ticket to WCOOP Event 72-M: $530 NLHE 8-Max, NLHE Main Event.
