The largest online poker tournament series in the world, PokerStars’ 2012 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), kicked off Sunday in style with tournaments repeatedly putting their guaranteed prize pools in the rear view mirror. The year’s most anticipated online poker series has a long way to – almost three more weeks – so if you forgot about it, there are multitudes more opportunities to slap down a buy-in and have fun.

The first five events – $215 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max, $215 No-Limit Hold’em, $320 Pot-Limit Omaha, $320 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max Shootout, and $215 No-Limit Hold’em Re-buy Turbo – all eclipsed their guarantees. Combined, they beat their guaranteed prize pools by over $1.6 million. It appears that while Americans relaxed on Labor Day weekend, poker players in the rest of the world were working hard at the tables.

There are 60 events remaining with buy-ins ranging from $215 on up to $10,300, so while there may not exactly be something for everyone, anyone with the proper bankroll should be able to find a game they like.
