PokerStars Adds Over $1 Million in WCOOP Main Event Satellites PokerStars Adds Over $1 Million in WCOOP Main Event Satellites

The WCOOP 2022 Main Events that were abruptly paused and then canceled on September 25 because of an unexpected DDoS attack have been rescheduled to play out on Sunday, November 6, and bringing even more value to PokerStars players.

The guaranteed prize pools for the three Main Events (across three buy-in orbits) have been increased from $2.5M, $4M, and $6M to $3M, $5M, and $7M, respectively, giving players even more of a reason to join the action.

To top it all off, PokerStars is now adding more than $1 million in Main Event seats across a series of satellite tournaments, which are already added to the schedule and available for entry.

The satellites will allow players to qualify for each of the three Main Events, with hundreds of extra tickets added by the operator and handed out to the winners of these qualifier events.

$109 WCOOP Main Event (L) Satellites

The $109 Main Event (L) is the lowest of the three WCOOP Main Events and one that’s arguably the easiest to qualify for.

Every hour of every day leading up to the event, PokerStars is throwing a Freebuy Satellite, a complete freeroll with two Main Event seats guaranteed. Players who bust out of the Satellite can rebuy into it for just $0.11, making this the most affordable way to book your WCOOP ticket.

Those with real money balances at PokerStars can compete for their $109 tickets in a series of daily Mega Satellites, with buy-ins ranging from $5 to $22 and anywhere between two and three tickets guaranteed.

Players can also find their way into the Mega Satellites cheaper, as daily Feeder Satellites with buy-ins between $0.55 and $2.20 are also available, each offering a ticket into one of the Mega Satellites.

$1,050 WCOOP Main Event (M) Satellites

The Medium orbit of WCOOP is less accessible, with the Main Event priced at $1050. Yet, there is plenty of opportunity to win a seat in this one through a series of satellite tournaments running throughout the month.

Daily Freeroll and Freebuy satellites are the most affordable way to make your way towards a ticket, as they require no buy-in whatsoever ($0.11 rebuys are available in the Freebuy). These free-entry tournaments will award tickets to the cheaper Feeder Satellites.

Feeder satellites are on the schedule daily, with buy-ins ranging from $0.55 to $11, and both Mega Satellite tickets and more expensive Feeder Satellite tickets are up for grabs.

For Mega Satellites, where direct entry into the $1050 Main Event can be won, the two daily $22 Mega Satellites are the most lucrative ones, as two extra seats are added to each one by PokerStars.

Besides these, daily $55 and $109 Mega Satellites are also available, each guaranteeing at least two entries into the Main Event.

Players can also enter Phase 1 of the Phased Satellites for the WCOOP Medium Main Event and win their way into Phase 2, which is played out each Sunday, with an incredible 50 Main Event tickets added by PokerStars for over $50,000 in extra value in each Phase 2 event.

$10,300 WCOOP Main Event (H) Satellites

While the two lower Main Events may be very appealing, the massive $10,300 Main Event is the one that every poker player dreams of playing and winning. Plenty of opportunities to play in it are now available.

While there are no freerolls leading into the $10,300 Main Event, Feeder Satellites start as low as $0.55, and these low buy-in feeders are played multiple times per day, with $22 Feeder Satellite tickets up for grabs, and 15 of these added by PokerStars each time.

The $22 Feeder Satellites guarantee at least three $215 Mega Satellite tickets, and each Mega Satellite guarantees at least one seat in the $10,300 Main Event. Every Sunday at 13:15 ET, PokerStars will add two seats for the Main Event to the Mega Satellite.

Four rounds of Fast Track Satellites are available each day, taking you from a $1.50 buy-in to the $10,300 Main Event ticket. Round 3 Satellites with a $109 buy-in offer extra $1050 seats into Round 4 each day, giving players additional opportunities to win their Main Event seats.

With more than $1 million in WCOOP seats added to the satellites by PokerStars and the increased prize pools, it looks like the weekend of November 6 will be one of the most lucrative ones in recent PokerStars history!
