Last year, SCOOP series 2018 at PokerStars.es attracted a capacity crowd and the total number of entries reached 37,000. The players from France and Spain were able to join the battle, but this time the players from Portugal can also do it.
In total, there are 290 events in the schedule: we won’t list off all of them and just admit the key tournaments. EQUINOX Event (buy-in €250) will be held on March 24, and Main Event (buy-in €250) will be conducted on April 6. The guarantee will be $1,000,000 for every of them.

Severin Rasset, director of poker innovation and operations at the stars group said the following:
“SCOOP is one of our legendary tournament series so we’re incredibly proud to offer a really exciting schedule of events to our Southern European players, including Portugal for the first time. We’ve worked hard on our schedule and believe it truly has something for everyone. The variety of buy-ins and satellites is intended to give players of all levels an opportunity to turn a small investment into a life-changing prize, all while enjoying playing alongside some of the best in the field.”
Italy will host its own SCOOP series, but the prize pool will be less (€ 5,000,000). Both poker festivals will start simultaneously, but the Italian series will end on April 8th.
