Championship Online Poker Series to Start January 23
BetOnline and Sportsbetting.ag share their online poker platforms. That partnership comes in very handy for cash games but especially for large poker tournament series. It means more players can participate in the same events, which allows for bigger prize pool guarantees.
Enter the Championship Online Poker Series, better known as COPS. The first COPS of 2022 is set to begin on January 23, complete with 15 days of 130 tournaments and $2M in guarantees.
COPS Brings Variety
While the Championship Online Poker Series is all No Limit Hold’em, there is other variety to be had. There are tournaments with deep stacks, progressive knockout (PKO) formats, turbos, marathons, rebuys, and combinations of them. Players can choose from six-max, seven-max, or eight-max tables.
The buy-ins are the most diverse, as they start as low as $11 and increase up to $320. The vast majority range from $33 to $109, though. Players of all bankrolls find good options in this series. Of course, that means the satellites also cater to a range of players, with those starting at just $1. (There are also daily freerolls that will award satellite tickets and exclusive contests and missions throughout the series for chances to win tickets.)
There are also a couple of mobile-only events. Players who log in from their mobile devices will have access to special events that won’t be available to desktop players.
