WCOOP NEWS Weekend: Big Buy-ins, Big Prize Pools, Even Some Big Overlays
September 14, 2021

Saturday and Sunday of the PokerStars 2009 World Championship Of Online Poker played host to five special events, each offering a unique test of the online player's mettle.

The first two events that took place, a $530 heads-up tournament and a $320 H.O.R.S.E. event, featured substantial overlays providing significant value for the 1,100 some players that chose to compete.

Sunday's three events, as perhaps expected given they took place on poker's biggest day, did not provide overlays and instead easily reaching their posted guarantees.  Even Event #27 surpassed its expected attendance, despite a stiff $25,500 buy-in which naturally excluded all but the most hardcore of online players.

The final event of the weekend, a $1,050 No-Limit Hold 'em tournament, is a two-day event not scheduled to reach conclusion until late tonight (9/14/9).
