Full Tilt Poker's FTOPS IX & PokerStars WCOOP Announced

They're Back!!!

Seems like its just one big online tournament series after the other. FTOPS VIII wrapped in May then it was onto the MSOP on Full Tilt. And now Full Tilt has announced the 9th edition of its FTOPS online series beginning August 6th at 9PM and running thru August 17th. Once again they have split starting times up between the Euro-friendly 2PM EST and US Friendly (except if you are caught in a traffic jam on the San Diego Freeway during rush hour of your evening commute home) 9 PM EST.

The full schedule is here!!!

And of course no one can out-do the Grandaddy of on-line tourneys Pokerstars' WCOOP. 33 events over many disciplines (but alas no Chinese Poker or pai gow!). WCOOP begins Friday September 5th and runs thru Sunday September 21st. The WCOOP events start at the ridiculous for the US times of 2:30PM EST and 4:30PM EST.

Full schedule here!!!

Satellites starting soon for all events on both sites.

And in the live arena Turning Stone has added a new tournament series called the Continental Poker Championships July 19th thru the 28th. You can check out the qualifiers and tournaments here. Right after that the 6th annual Empire State Holdem Championships begins August 15th thru the 25th. Complete Schedule here. Satellites for the main event are already running and are on Sundays at 2 PM. Word on the 2+2 forum from the TROCK TD is that there will also be another new multi-day series around Thanksgiving time with some surprises in store as far as new events and structure.
