2011 SCOOP Schedule Changed: Prize Money Slashed Nearly in Half

2011 SCOOP

The 2011 SCOOP schedule sponsored by PokerStars.com has been changed.  SCOOP is short for Spring Championship of Online Poker.  The changes reflect the recent crackdown on Internet poker operator PokerStars and two of its competitors in the United States.

All events have been moved up three hours in order to better accommodate European players. 

One of the most noticeable changes to the 2011 SCOOP is not so much the time changes but the steep reduction in pot size.  Initially $45 million in guaranteed prize money was to be given away.  Now that number is being reduced to $25 million.

PokerStars was forced to exit the US market on April 15 after the US Justice Department seized funds from the company (as well as the PokerStars.com domain).  On Tuesday April 27, PokerStars monies were being returned to affected players.
