Staff February 9, 2021
The first Michigan Championship of Online Poker (MICOOP) is set for Feb. 20 to March 8 at PokerStars with $1 million guaranteed.

Less than two weeks after launching in the Wolverine State, PokerStars Michigan is offering up the state’s first major online poker tournament series.

The first Michigan Championship of Online Poker (MICOOP) is set for Feb. 20 to March 8 with $1 million guaranteed.

PokerStars became the first online poker site in Michigan after going live on Jan. 29. The COOP brand is recognized by many in the poker world and Michigan now has its own, distinct version.

“Coming off the launch of our real-money gaming brands in Michigan, it is clear that players want the world class offerings that only PokerStars can bring,” FOX Bet/PokerStars USA CEO Kip Levin said in a news release. “As the sole online and mobile poker product in Michigan, our commitment and investment in PokerStars is vital as we aim to bring all aspects of a great customer experience to the poker community.

“We are excited for Michiganders to join our most popular series and crown our first big winner who will join in the prestigious footsteps of other Championship Of Online Poker (COOP) champions.”

A look at the PokerStars MICOOP series

Michigan players will find 60 tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $10 to $500. The series features numerous game options No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, Five Card Draw, and mixed games.

Tournament types include Progressive Knockout (PKO), turbo, traditional bounty, marathon, and others. In a PKO, once a player knocks out another, that player wins a portion of the bounty. The other portion is added to the winning player’s bounty and he progressively becomes a bigger target.

A two-day $300 Main Event highlights the action on March 7-8, featuring a guaranteed prize pool of $125,000.

Another interesting event to watch include the $500 High Roller on Feb. 24 with $35,000 guaranteed. A $50 Mini Main Event is set for March 7 with $35,000 guaranteed. Other highlights include:

  • $100 Kick Off, Nightly Stars (Event 1, Feb. 20) – $30,000 guaranteed
