PokerStars has finally announced the full schedule for the 2022 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) which is one of the biggest annual online poker festivals that the operator runs each year.

The WCOOP has been around since 2002 and the online poker operator claims to have paid out more than $1 billion in prize money during the history of the WCOOP.

2022 WCOOP Puts Up $85M In Prize Money

One of the reasons why poker players love and wait for the WCOOP is because the buy-ins generally appeal to low, medium and high stakes players as PokerStars ensures that everyone gets a crack at the millions of dollars in prize money that is on offer. A total of 322 tournaments will take place during this online poker festival.

The 2022 WCOOP will start on Sep 4 and will get over on Sep 28. A total of $85 million in guaranteed prize money will be up for grabs. Based on the schedule of events released for the 2022 WCOOP, the lowest buy-in starts at $5.50 which will appeal to low stakes players while high stakes players have a lot of action to choose from with the highest buy-in fixed at $25,000.

The 2022 WCOOP will feature as many as 6 Main Events where the combined prize pool for these Main Events is over $14 million. PokerStars has scheduled 3 Main Events that follow a Pot-Limit Omaha format and 3 Main Events that follow a No-Limit Hold’em format.

High Stakes Players Will Watch Out For These Tournaments

While there is a lot of action on offer for both low and mid stakes players, the bulk of the prize money will be given away via high stakes tournaments.

High rollers will need to watch out for the WCOOP World Championship of Progeessive KO NLH which has a $5,200 buy-in and a $1 million guarantee taking place on Sep 4; the WCOOP World Championship of 6-Max NLHE on Sep 11 which has a $5,200 buy-in and a $750,000 guarantee and the WCOOP 92-H World Championship of NLHE/Main Event which has a $10,300 buy-in and a $6 million guarantee and is set to take place on Sep 25.
