PokerStars has finalized the schedule for the 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), the fourth installment of the popular online tournament series. Created in 2009 as a sort of mid-year warmup for the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), the SCOOP is unique in that every event has three different buy-in levels (three separate tournaments, if that wasn’t obvious), so that players of all bankrolls can participate. The 2012 SCOOP will begin on Sunday May 6th and conclude with the Main Event two weeks later on Sunday, May 20th.

The guaranteed prize pools have not all been released yet, but the PokerStars blog has announced that the 120 tournaments will feature a combined $30 million in prize money. One-sixth of that comes from the Main Event. The low buy-in ($109) Main Event tourney will have a $1 million guarantee, the mid buy-in ($1,050) will have a $1.5 million guarantee, and the high buy-in will feature a $2.5 million guarantee, with $500,000 guaranteed for first place. Of course, if enough players register for the various tournaments, the prize pools will eclipse their guarantees.

The complete schedule can be found below.
