PokerStars is the internet’s largest provider of online poker controlling an estimated two-thirds of the world’s online poker market. The company delivers an immersive and engaging poker experience to over 15,000 daily players playing real cash money. PokerStars also hosts the two largest online poker tournaments the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) and the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). PokerStars latest tournament offering is Megastack, a new live tournament series that after a successful debut in Europe is now making the trip stateside to New Jersey.
The Megastack is Going Global
The PokerStars’ Megastack series was launched in April at the Hippodrome Casino in London. The event attracted 526 players, twice the average attendance of other PokerStars tournaments, and proved to be very successful. The tournament was targeted at recreational players aiming to provide casual poker players with the chance to experience a pro-level tournament action for small stakes. The event promised “PokerStars Champion-like” structures at a “fraction of the cost”. There were three different tables with three different buy-ins; £100 for the Hold’em – Cheap and Deep, £150 for PokerStars Megastack and £400 for the PokerStars Megastack High Roller. Another PokerStars Megastack tournament is set to take place at the Hippodrome Casino this October from the 20th to the 22nd.
