wcoop tournamentWith the daily grind of the World Series of Poker now over, the online poker world will soon turn its attention to the 2011 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) at PokerStars, so fasten your seat belts as we prepare to embark upon a 23-day, 62-tournament journey with $30 million in guaranteed prize-money up for grabs!

Even with Black Friday shutting out all US poker players, the $30 million in guaranteed prize money is more than PokerStars offered for all but the last two WCOOP’s –last year’s Main Event pulled in over $12 million alone, a number the 2011 WCOOP Main Event is likely to fall well short of.
