November 22, 2019: PokerStars Launches Celebratory PCOOP Series. http://bit.ly/3394fOp
By Ben Hamill

Poker is officially alive and online in Pennsylvania. And it’s all thanks to the genius and innovative work of PokerStars. And to celebrate the November 4 launch and two weeks of successful post-launch action, the operator has announced a superb new tournament series – not to mention rewarding!

Its obvious that the motivation behind PokerStars’ new Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker (PCOOP); not to mention its fantastic $1 million in guaranteed prize money; is to attract as many initial players to the site as possible. PokerStars currently operates the only online Poker platform in the state and getting in early is imperative if the operator is to hold on to its local industry lead. http://bit.ly/3394fOp
