On Monday, PokerStars released the tentative schedule for the 2013 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). The annual series is scheduled to begin on Sunday, May 12.

This year, SCOOP will boast a total of 42 events, an increase from 40 last year. As in previous years, each event will allow players to choose between three buy-in amounts — low, medium and high. This will enable players with any sized bankroll to participate in the 126 total tournaments.

There is a large variety of games on the schedule, including no-limit hold'em, no-limit draw, seven-card stud, Omaha hi-lo, pot-limit Omaha and badugi, among others.

A six-max no-limit hold'em event is the first event on the schedule for the SCOOP series. It is set to begin on May 12 at 11 a.m. ET. The highly-anticipated Main Event is scheduled for Sunday, May 26. The buy-ins for the Main Event are $109 (low), $1,050 (medium) and $10,300 (high).

Last year, Nick "GripDsNutz" Grippo was the eventual winner of the SCOOP Main Event (high), cashing for $798,675 after a three-way chop. In 2011, the Main Event winner was Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro. Kelopuro walked away with $505,000 after completing a five-way deal.

As indicated previously, this SCOOP series schedule is not set in stone. PokerStars is requesting comments and feedback about the various tournaments. Comments in a thread at the TwoPlusTwo forums indicate that there may be some discrepancy over the various pot-limit Omaha events as well as the start and end dates of the tournament. There has also been some discussion that both Saturdays and Sundays should have more events and that Sundays should not exclusively be no-limit hold'em games.

You may send your questions, comments, and overall feedback to SCOOP@PokerStars.com.
