PokerStars USCOOP Returns to American Online Poker Markets with $4.5M Guaranteed, 18 Trophies

The Championship of Online Poker (COOP) brand has become a mainstay at PokerStars and that continues at the company’s US  sites as well. COOP is one of the most prestigious and longest-running tournament series in US online poker.

Stars announced Tuesday that USCOOP, a bit of a new moniker for the overall series, returns Sept. 9-26 to Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey with $4.5 million guaranteed across the three states.

The COOP series regularly offer players of all levels a chance at some major winnings. The festival also offers plenty of poker variants and tournament styles. This year’s series includes more than 200 events across 18 days of action

PokerStars COOP highlights

Players jumping in the action will find buy-ins for every bankroll level along with buy-ins starting at just $20. In Pennsylvania, players will find an overall guarantee of $2 million, with $1.5 million in Michigan and $1 million in New Jersey.

The Main Event in each state comes with a $300 buy-in and all are set for Sept. 25 running two days. Here’s a look at the Main Event guarantee for each state.

  • Pennsylvania – $225,000
  • Michigan – $150,000
  • New Jersey – $100,000

On the international PokerStars platform, the company recently unveiled several “world championship” events as part of WCOOP. Along those lines, Stars is carrying over that idea to USCOOP. 

This year’s series brings 18 trophy events in each market, including a 24-karat gold plated trophy for Main Event champions. Additionally, the top finisher in each state leaderboard also receives a trophy.

Platinum Passes on the line

Along with the new trophy events, another major poker prize will also be on the line during USCOOP. Platinum Passes have become some of the biggest prizes in poker.

A pass awards a $30,000 travel and tournament package for the PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC). That event is set for January in the Bahamas at the Baha Mar resort.

PokerStars announced a new television deal with FOX Sports on Friday. The agreement brings the PSPC tournament to FS1 beginning Feb. 26.

During USCOOP, six passes will be up for grabs. Stars will award passes based on a leaderboard throughout the series. Players can win by playing across all poker segments, sportsbook, and casino gaming to earn points. For more information on how to win a pass, click here.

Additional details on tournament styles, satellites, and more 

This year’s USCOOP brings about some new events as part of the action. Some first-time USCOOP offerings include:

  • Adrenaline tournaments – Tournaments offering an even faster pace..
  • Three-max tournaments – Just three players per table, which should be fun for those who enjoy Jackpot Sit & Go’s at PokerStars.
  • Last-man standing tournaments – The last player standing earns a major portion of the prize pool.

Along with plenty of action and promotions, players can land a seat at a bargain price. Satellites for the series start at just $2.

COOP Spin & Go’s are part of the mix as well and offer opportunities to win a Main Event seat for just $3. Stars is also offering a daily freeroll where players can earn points in the tournament for a chance at one of the Platinum Passes on the line. Here’s a look at the schedule for each state.
