Player feedback still being considered, but dates set

PokerStars has revealed a few basic details on its plans for the next World Championship of Online Poker tournament series, announcing that the tournament will take place between September 3 and 25 and include a $5,200 buy-in three-day Main Event.

Asking for player input on the forums, a PokerStars representative posted:

“The Super Tuesday and Thursday Thrill special editions will be different each week: half price in week one, their normal price but 3-day tournaments in week two, and $2,100 in week three. Also, for the first time ever, we’re going to run a HORSE Phase Event in which Phase 1s from Monday-Friday represent each HORSE letter (Monday as FLHE, Tuesday as FLO8, etc.), with the final Phase 1 and Phase 2 on Saturday being traditional HORSE. There’s some other bigger surprises I can’t share yet which I’m excited for you all to see.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
