There can be no doubt that PokerStars knows how to wave hello to September in a big way. The first Sunday of the month is also the first day of the 2011 World Championship of Online Poker, and it launches with three massive tournaments with many more and millions of dollars in guarantees on the way!
Why play WCOOP? Silly question, we suppose. There are the millions of dollars we just mentioned, along with the biggest titles in online poker, and those beautiful gold bracelets that will be awarded to winners of the events. But even more than that, there is a special promotion for female PokerStars players. Women's WCOOP offers the chance to win a $3,500 prize package to the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas! Become the highest ranking female player of the WCOOP this month, and you'll be on your way to the PCA in January for sun, fun, and poker, of course.
PokerStars also welcomes the month of September with its weekly Women's Sunday tournament. While players are firing up their screens to play WCOOP events, they also entered the biggest online women-only tournament on the Internet. And the final registration numbers were:
Total players: 205
Prize pool: $10,250.00
Paid finishers: 36
Included in the list of players today were two bounties. Friend of PokerStars Charlotte "Sjlot" Van Brabander, who final tabled the Women's Sunday last week, didn't do so well this week, exiting in 170th place. Also in the field was Team PokerStars Pro Fatima Moreira de Melo of Holland, who left in 158th place. Congrats to the players who picked up those $50 bounties for eliminating them.
Holla_d_wf84 of Switzerland won this week's Women's Sunday and $2,096.23 in cash. Congratulations!
