This morning, I was staring a little longingly at the PokerStars lobby. I’m not saying I was bored or in need of extra work (there is enough to go around). I’m just saying, there was a hole in my heart where SCOOP used to be, or as the old power-pop tune used to say, “There’s a hole in my heart than can only be filled by COOOOOOP!”
Or something like that.
Ah, those were the days! Those heady, million-dollar, glorious salad days of our youth…or, in this case, a few weeks ago.
And then, as if the universe knew I needed something to look forward to, this popped up in the PokerStars lobby.
I stared at it for a few minutes, not really sure whether to believe the universe was satiating my longing so quickly.
And then that became this.
And I believed.
Just like that, all was well.
WCOOP is here!
Well, it’s not officially here. That will have to wait until September 6. But you can start the road to qualifying for the $10 million Main Event now.
That’s right the World Championship of Online Poker is going to host the biggest online tournament of the year on September 27, and you can be among the first people to claim a seat.
A full schedule of events is still to come, so for now you will have to be satisfied with the satellites. Hey, any port in a storm.
Keep your eyes on the WCOOP web page for a full schedule of events.
I know I will be.
