BREAKING: PokerStars releases WCOOP 2011 schedule

wcoop2009-thumb.jpgNews just in, and you're going to like it. Here at PokerStars Blog HQ sits an incoming communication from the poker room team that is so hot, steam is coming out of my email system. Here, folks, is the 2011 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker schedule.

Forget the WSOP being in full swing in Las Vegas, this is the news the online poker world has been waiting for - when WCOOP 2011 starts, what events there are, when they are... and what the buy-ins are.

OK, there may be one or two tweaks before the big kick-off on September 4, but this is enough for you to be consulting your diaries. You'll need to make room for 62 (yes, 62!) entries.

As ever, PokerStars listens to its players, so is asking for feedback on the schedule. You can send your comments/suggestions/love to wcoop@pokerstars.com
