Now that the biggest live poker tournament series in the world is over (well, except for that small detail of the October Nine), it’s time to start getting geared up for the largest online poker tournament series in the world. PokerStars has released the schedule for the 2012 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), the most anticipated internet poker event of the year.

The schedule is almost exactly the same as last year’s. The 2012 WCOOP will kick off on Sunday, September 2 with three events: $215 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max, $10,300 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller, and $215 No-Limit Hold’em. In total, there will be 62 separate tournaments, culminating with the $5,200 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event with $1 million guaranteed to the winner. Thomas ‘Kallllle’ Pedersen won $1,260,018.50 in the Main Event last year, besting more than 1,600 opponents.

As is always the case, there will be guaranteed prize pools for every event, though PokerStars has yet to determine the specifics.
