, also known as WCOOP.
The 2012 WCOOP will feature a large number of events for the serious-minded tournament player, promising grand cash prizes and specially designed WCOOP bracelets for its winners.

All in all, PokerStars promises 62 events with guaranteed prize pools, more than enough to attract scores of hopeful tournament grinders.
Last year, the WCOOP handed out a record-breaking $47,120,800 in prize monies, with the biggest lump going to Danish pro Thomas "Kallllle" Pedersen.
This happened as Pedersen took home the Main Event to secure the biggest online score of the year, worth $1,260,018.
