It's time again for the world's biggest online poker tournament series. This year, PokerStars is guaranteeing a monster $15 million over 23 events in the World Championship of Online Poker.

2007 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker

Last year, PokerStars set the bar high when it put up $10 million in guaranteed prize money over 18 events. By the time WCOOP was over, buy-ins and prize money had crested over $18.5 million. At the time, it was the biggest WCOOP of all time.

Over the years, WCOOP has grown from humble roots into appointment poker for the world's top players. In 2002, MultiMarine of Sweden won $65,450 in the main championship event. Just a year later, DeOhGee pocketed $222,750 in the big one. By 2004, first prize in the main event was $424,945 and went to Ragde. The year 2005 saw Panella86 win $577,342 in the championship. Last year, none other than pro player J.C. Tran won the WCOOP main event bracelet, beating a field of 2,510 players and pocketing more than $600,000!

Now, Poker Stars has added even more events to the schedule, including five-card draw and 2-7 triple draw. The main event, a championship $2,600 buy-in no-limit hold'em event will see a $5 million guarantee and is sure to draw a star-studded crowd.
