PokerStars announces 2011 SCOOP Schedule

Mark your calendars for May 8th because that’s when the 2011 SCOOP begins. PokerStars just recently released the SCOOP schedule, which includes a total of 38 events and $45 million in guaranteed money. In addition to the massive amount of money involved in this online poker event, PokerStars is once again offering their very popular format of Low, Mid, and High buy-ins.

As the name implies, each buy-in level caters to different bankrolls so that everybody can compete. Of course, if you can’t afford the normal buy-ins for these poker games, there will also be 2011 SCOOP satellites starting on March 14th that run until the SCOOP ends in late May. But before you think about the satellites, you might want to have a look at some of the 2011 SCOOP buy-ins first.

When the festivities kick off on May 8th, Event #1 will feature a Low poker tournament ($22 buy-in, NLHE 6-Max, $300,000 guaranteed), a Mid tourney ($215 buy-in, NLHE 6-Max, $750,000 guaranteed), and a High tournament ($2,100 buy-in, NLHE 6-Max, $1,000,000 guaranteed). As you can see, the buy-ins are divided up very nicely so that everybody has a chance of playing.
