Get ready for an action-packed month of poker as the World Championship Of Online Poker has now released its schedule for WCOOP 2022.

Coming just a few weeks after the EPT Barcelona came to an end, the WCOOP 2022 event will get underway on 4 September, with the last tournament in a very busy schedule set to start on 28 September.

The schedule sees a rich and varied selection of 322 tournaments, with buy ins ranging from $5.50 up to $25,000.

On the regular WCOOP scheduled events, players will be able to buy in at one of three levels (low, medium and high) and a total of 12 World Championship tournaments will be contested over the course of the month.

Let’s now look at some of the dates of the Main Events taking place in the WCOOP in September.

WCOOP Main Event Key Dates

This year’s WCOOP starts on Sunday 4th September and the final tournaments start on Wednesday 28th September.

There are 12 Main Event/Championships set to take place across the schedule of the tournament and the buy ins and format are outlined below:

  • 4th September – $5,200 NLHE PKO Championship
  • 7th September – $1,050 HORSE Championship
  • 8th September – $1,050 Badugi Championship
  • 11th September – $5,200 NLHE 6-Max Championship
  • 12th September – $1,050 PLO8 Championship
  • 13th September – $5,200 NLHE Heads-Up Championship
  • 14th September – $1,050 Razz Championship
  • 18th September – $530 Women’s Championship
  • 19th September – $2,100 8-Game Championship
  • 22nd September – $1,050 2-7 Single Draw Championship
  • 25th September – $10,300 NLHE Main Event/Championship
  • 25th September – $10,300 PLO Main Event/Championship

The two NLHE and PLO Main Events starting on the 25 September will certainly catch the eye and not just for higher roller and experienced players, as there are a number of qualifier satellites set to be played for low stakes players to try and play their way to an entry in the event.

There will also be huge interest in the women’s tournament on the 18 September.

While many events at WCOOP will be Texas Hold’em, as you can see from the Main Event list above, there are many championships for a mixture of other games including tournaments for Limit Hold’em (Event 21), PLO (Events 5, 18, 42, 55, 79, 94 and 103), NL Omaha Hi/Lo (Events 63 & 87), PL Omaha Hi/Lo (Events 49, 70 and the Championship) and additional tournaments for versions of HORSE, 8-Game, Badugi, Razz, Stud and 2-7 Single Draw to name but a few.

Options For The Higher Roller

If you are somebody that is used to staking big money on poker games, then the good news is that there are a number of events at WCOOP that are aimed squarely at the higher roller player.

The most eye-catching is the $25,000 Super High Roller, which has a $1m guaranteed prize pool and which will take place over two days, starting on Tuesday 20th September.

There are also seven more tournaments for higher rollers that have a buy in of $10,300 which includes both PLO and NLHE World Championships, as well as 8-Game alongside a smattering of five NLHE tournaments (one of which is a PKO event).

These games will take place on the Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday throughout the course of the month.

Lower stakes players that would like to participate in some of these bigger value events can qualify for them by earning a place through the series of satellite tournaments that will be running throughout the tournament period, where the initial entry fees are considerably more suited to a lower stakes players bankroll.

And speaking of lower stakes players, there’s plenty of action they can enjoy at WCOOP too.

Lower Stakes Players Options

Given that there are three tier buy in levels in many of the WCOOP events, there is usually an option for a lower stakes player to try their hand in a bigger tournament.

However, if you don’t want to spend more than say $20 on an entry into a tournament, the good news is that there are a number of lower stakes games you can play.

Without doubt, the Phase 2 event on the opening day of the series is one you can consider as there are very few places you can play for a prize pool of $500,000, guaranteed, for just a $5.50 entry fee.

On the same day, there is the WCOOP Kickoff NLHE tournament, which offers a $50,000 prize guaranteed, again for just a $5.50 entry.

Another tournament to consider on the first weekend of action is the Sunday Cooldown, a $5.50 NLHE Turbo, PKO tournament which sees $35,000 guaranteed.

If you like Bounty Hunter style games, then WCOOP 33 is a $5.50 buy in, PKO Sunday Warmup event, which has a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Another great event for just $5.50 entry is WCOOP 47, a 6-Max NLHE tournament which offers $20,000 guaranteed and some very solid midweek poker action.

Finally, the final day $5.50 NLHE 7-Max, Hyper-Turbo PKO Series Wrap-Up event offers some outstanding action at the end of the series with a $40,000 guaranteed prize pool up for grabs.

And remember those qualifying satellite tournaments for the main events to see if you can play your way to a seat at the table where big money is on the line, while you play with the freedom of someone who invested just a small amount in a satellite to try and win big!

WCOOP Leader Boards

Don’t forget too the players that shine in the WCOOP this year will feature prominently in the Player of the Series Leader Boards, which will be updated daily throughout the tournament to decide who is the Player of the Series.

PokerStars 2022 SCOOP and WCOOP events are amongst the most keenly contested and popular events throughout the year. And with WCOOP events now open to more players than ever, with tournaments to suit all budgets, there has never been a better time to put your online poker skills to the test.
