PokerStars Easily Tops PASCOOP Guarantees in First Weekend, Pays Out $380K With Plenty of Action Remaining

Online poker in Pennsylvania is booming. Recent numbers in PokerStars’ Pennsylvania Spring Championship of Online Poker (PASCOOP) show a market that’s eager for real money online poker.

In the first weekend of events, SCOOP exceeded the original $280,000 total guaranteed prize pools. The tournaments awarded $350,000 to players in the KeyStone State.

Some highlights from PokerStars’ PASCOOP

PokerStars remains the only poker site in Pennsylvania so far and players are embracing the second edition of PASCOOP. The site’s first 10 tournaments exceeded guarantees by an average of 40%.

Through the first 21 tournaments, prize pools also exceeded guarantees by an average of 16%. Company officials believe offering three buy-in tiers has been successful in growing player pools.

This is the first time a PokerStars US series has utilized this approach. PokerStars has used the plan to reach more players with differing bankrolls.

The $100 High Sunday Special attracted the largest field size so far with more than 1,000 entries. The event generated a prize pool of more than $92,000. That’s a significant boost to the original guarantee of $75,000

Plenty of PokerStars events still ahead

PASCOOP runs through May 3 with more than $2 million in guaranteed prize pools across 120 events. Players will find at least another 100 events left on the schedule.

The two-day $300 Main Event highlights the series on May 2 with a $200,000 guarantee.

Even more is in store for US online poker players. The first Michigan Spring Championship of Online Poker (MISCOOP) will run alongside the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker (NJSCOOP) from May 8-24.

Full details on both series are expected to be announced next week. Here’s a look at the compete PASCOOP schedule remaining:
