Bigger and Better Than Ever – WCOOP 2021 vs 2020 Comparison

In the announcement of the PokerStars Blog, the organizers promise:

WCOOP 2021 will be the biggest and greatest streak ever.

So far, everything agrees with the first statement: there are 306 tournaments in the schedule, when, like last year, there were 225. For the first time, WCOOP will be held with a record guarantee of $ 100M – this is $ 20M more than last year.

The buy-in range has narrowed. In 2020, it was possible to win the trophy for as little as $ 2.20, in 2021, the lowest buy-in was $ 5.50. But WCOOP is still democratic: 23 tournaments will be held with a buy-in of $ 5.50; another 39 – with a buy-in of $ 11.

In all other respects, WCOOP remains the same. Three buy-ins options, a third of the schedule are non-Hold’em events: HORSE, 8-games, 2-7 Triple Draw, 6+, Stud, Razz, Badugi, Omaha varieties.
