It’s a very busy time for online poker tournaments, as several tournament series kicked off this past weekend, not to mention the usual slate of big weekend action that can be found across the Internet. The biggest tournaments for the next three weeks will be found on PokerStars (as they always are, but for the next three weeks they will be even bigger than usual) as the 2013 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) got underway this past weekend.
In addition to the WCOOP, PokerStars sister site Full Tilt Poker will be hosting the Mini-Full Tilt Online poker Series (Mini-FTOPS) over the next couple of weeks, and over on the Merge Gaming Network the Poker Maximus VI tournament series also got started on Sunday –the Poker Maximus is the only one of the three open to US players.
WCOOP Fever Already Gripping the Poker World
The numbers are a bit mind boggling: 66 tournaments over three weeks, with at least $40 million in prize-pools waiting to be won. This can only mean that the PokerStars WCOOP has returned. The 2013 WCOOP is looking like it will be one of the biggest in the series history (which is no small order) and as always there will be a player of the Series leader-board where players will compete for even more cash and prizes.
In addition to the huge events that will be taking place the WCOOP will also be running countless warm-up and second-chance tournaments, as well as their usual daily and weekly tournaments.

Full Tilt’s $3 million Mini-FTOPS
The Mini-FTOPS is exactly what you would expect it to be; an exact replica of the recently concluded FTOPS XXIII with the exception that the buy-in for every tournament has been slashed by a factor of 10. The series will feature 39 events with $3 million in guaranteed prize money.
The Main Event of the Mini-FTOPS will be a $70+$5 buy-in No limit Holdem tournament and will take place on September 29th.
