PokerStars Introduces SCOOP Afterparty

PokerStars just finished up its 2021 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) last month and it was a huge success. Over $137 million in prize money was provided to players and plenty of action was enjoyed at the virtual felt. Now that SCOOP is over, PokerStars is not ready to stop having fun. The brand recently announced the SCOOP Afterparty, with a whopping 60 additional events on offer.

SCOOP Afterparty

If you are a fan of SCOOP, then the Afterpartyis something you must attend. The platform has divided the new events into the Low, Medium, and High tiers, making it easy for players to be able to compete no matter their bankroll. The events are listed in the PokerStars client with the option to take part in satellites as well.

From May 4-18, players will find the Afterparty at PokerStars. Players have already been able to take part in major events including the Half Price Super Tuesday SE with a $530 buy-in. This event offered a total of $250,000 in guaranteed prize money!

The schedule is full of unique options including Win-The-Button, progressive knockouts, and six-max. Several throwback events took place on May 5 and were one-day only options, allowing players to compete quickly.
