Share On

The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is an annual rite of passage for poker players of all bankroll levels across the globe.

With three tiers of buy-ins - low, medium and high - and phase 1 satellites starting at just $5.50, it's a festival open to player of all stripes and skill levels.

With a surge in new, competing Spring series on both partypoker and 88poker, PokerStars has upped the stakes for this year's SCOOP to epic levels.

With the $20 million Powerfest and $7.5m XL Inferno to compete with PokerStars has boosted its overall guarantees across the entire SCOOP series to $55 million for this year.

That's an extraordinary number as is, let alone that it's a full $15 million more than last year's SCOOP.

In fact the 2017 SCOOP will be the biggest and richest tournament series in the history of online poker - and it all begins in just 14 days.

Phase Tournaments from $5.50

Things take off for the 2017 SCOOP on April 30 with a new stage for the SCOOP events - Phase 1 qualifiers.

These are low buy-in, accessible events everyone can participate in and use to gain access to SCOOP events that might be above their bankrolls.

Phase 1 qualifiers to all Low. Medium and High buy-in SCOOP events begin April and run right until the beginning of the regular SCOOP schedule on May 7.

Once the regular SCOOP begins players can choose from an event running at each buy-in tier daily. Low tier buy-ins start as low as $5.50 and run at both the $11 and $27 level, too.

Medium tier events run from $55 to $215 will the High buy-ins run from $530 and up.

As expected from PokerStars the amount of variants found on the SCOOP schedule is plentiful with a gigantic range of No-Limit Hold'em and PLO events complemented by mixed-game events like HORSE and 8-Game and lesser-played games like 2-7 Lowball and Badugi.

In short it's the most diverse and accessible SCOOP ever and you can access it all simply by creating a PokerStars account via our review page.
