Pokerstars also hosts the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) which has been running since 2002 and is regarded as the online equivalent of the World Series of Poker.
Then there is the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) which was first established in 2009 and has since become the most popular online tournament series. Unlike WCOOP, there are three different buy-in stakes in the SCOOP events: Low, Medium (10x Low stake) and High (100x Low stake).
Last, but not least, there is the Micro Millions tournament which was launched in March 2012. This tournament series is designed micro-stakes players offering a low buy-in tournament and large guaranteed cash prizes.
