The wait has come to an end. After the online gaming legislation that was passed in 2017, the first Pennsylvania Online Poker site was launched earlier this month. It is not surprising that the first site which became available to the masses in the state has been introduced by PokerStars.
They had been the leaders of the industry prior to being shut down in the year 2011. Now, after the launch of the site, PokerStars has announced the first major Pennsylvania Online Poker series.
PokerStars: The Leading Company of Online Championship Events
PACOOP or Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker is all set to start from 30th November and continue till 16th December. The event is going to feature more than $1 million guarantees. This might appear like a small amount in comparison to the other events which are organized by the company in the past but this event is restricted to players of Pennsylvania.
Moreover, the site has been launched only a few weeks ago. The company is using this event to market their site and acquire more customers. For now, there is no competition in this field and is sure to provide them with a lead.
We checked the schedule and saw that the number of events included for PACOOP is 50. Considering this is the first time that it is being organized, it is a large number of events. However, this is what players have come to expect from a Poker giant like PokerStars. $300 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event has been made the primary aspect of the event. It features a $100,000 guarantee. It can be expected that the event will have a prize pool of around $250,000.
PokerStars always creates depth in their event and this is one thing that they do much better than the others. Thus, it can be expected that the Pennsylvania Poker Championship will be no exception. Irrespective of the recent launch of the site, players will find the schedule to be filled with events of No-Limit Hold’em.
It has something for everyone and no poker players are going to be disappointed. Also, it is an excellent opportunity for players to try out an event which they usually would not play as these fields are small in comparison to the other poker sites.
Pennsylvania Online Poker Championship: The First of Many Series
Someone who has played at PokerStars or knows about the existence of the company will know that poker festivals have turned out to be a major attraction. Some of the events that have been included in the schedule will have veneer but this is going to be the first of many COOP events for the players of Pennsylvania. We can expect in the coming spring another series will be announced that will have better guarantees.
For now, players should laud the comeback of the legal online poker to the state and there is no one better to lead the charge than PokerStars, the company which has dominated the field for several years and is expected to do so again in time to come.
