WCOOP 2017 and Raising for Effective Giving

During the 2017 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), PokerStars players helped raise $109,000 for Raising for Effective Giving (REG), a charity co-founded by Team PokerStars Pros Liv Boeree and Igor Kurganov. PokerStars donated the rake from the Super High Roller event and also matched donations up to $50,000 for the charity. REG used the money raised to support the work of the Future of Humanity Institute and The Machine Intelligence Research Institute.

Now, for the 2017 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), we are donating the rake from Event 66-H - $25,000 NLHE with $3M GTD - as well as once again matching donations up to $50,000.

Here’s a note from Liv and Igor:

“We’re very excited to work with PokerStars again for WCOOP! The money donated will make a real difference in the world, supporting organisations working to prevent some of the most dangerous catastrophes that we face together as a society. For more information about the work REG does, please visit www.reg-charity.org. Thanks and good luck!”

WCOOP 2017 runs from September 3-26, with a huge $60M in guaranteed prize money and a range of tournaments for both high and low buy-in levels. For more details, check out the WCOOP homepage.
