What to expect from PokerStars ONCOOP

The series brings some major online tournament action to Ontario, which underwent provincial regulation earlier this year. PokerStars launched in June and is now ramping up a COOP festival for Ontario players.

The series offers something for every bankroll and interest. ONCOOP features  a range of Low and High buy-in options, allowing players of all types to get involved. Players will find two main events running on Oct. 16.

The $500 No Limit Hold’em High Main Event features a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. The $50 Low Main Event comes with $40,000 guaranteed.

Other series highlights include:

  • $200 NLHE Kickoff (Oct. 1) – $20,000 guaranteed
  • $1,000 Sunday Special High Roller (Oct. 2) – $70,000 guaranteed
  • $300 Thursday Thrill PKO (Oct. 6) – $32,000 guaranteed
  • $100 NLHE PKO (Oct. 14) – $18,000 guaranteed

Growing the Ontario platform 

Following the launch of PokerStars in Ontario, players in the Canadian province have already found some nice series.  The first of those was the Ontario Platinum Series, which featured $1 million awarded to players.

The Bounty Builder Series next ran from Sept. 4-19 with another $1 million guaranteed. Since then, Stars officials have focused on planning an even bigger series with ONCOOP. The festival now doubles the guarantee of the first two series.

Here’s a look at the complete series.
