Here’s how you can watch all the action from SCOOP in 10 exclusive cards-uplive streams, plus final table replays.
The confirmed return of the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) to the PokerStars tables means that armchair viewers are also in for a treat. PokerStars’ broadcast channels will screen tons of the action, across 10 live streams throughout the festival.
All the most prestigious events will get the full treatment, including the $25K Super High Roller and the $10K Main Event. In fact, the Main Event gets extended coverage this year, with three crucial days coming under the spotlight.
On Monday, May 30, we’ll follow the bubble bursting and subsequent insanity. Players will then race towards the final table the following day, also covered on the stream. The final broadcast of the series will be the Main Event final, on Wednesday, June 1, where the lion’s share of the $5 million guaranteed prize pool with be handed out.
As always, the cards-up live action will screen on PokerStars Twitch and YouTube channels, anchored by James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton. Expert analysis will come from a scintillating roster of special guests, including Sam Grafton, Maria Ho, Griffin Benger and Nick Walsh.
Take note of a new on-air time: 13:00 ET / 18:00 BST / 19:00 CEST, in line with the earlier start time for marquee events. Full broadcast schedule is below.
REPLAYING THE MIXED GAMES
In addition to the live broadcasts, which will typically follow hold’em tournaments, various PokerStars streamers will also host replays of SCOOP events, where the emphasis will be on mixed games.
Mason “PyefacePoker” Pye, Georgina “GJ Reggie” James, Mark “naigo1” Foresta and Keith “AccidentalGrenade” Becker will cast their eyes over some PLO, Stud and some 2-7 Single Draw tournaments, while there will also be an exclusive look back at the final of the Women’s Event and the $5K Main Event Second Chance Turbo.
There may well be some very special guests joining the commentators to review some of those too.
