By: PSO Admin @ 10:20 (EDT) / 506 / Comment ( 1 )

Poker is a numbers game, right? Well here's a quick look at all of the interesting numbers that caught our eye at PokerSchoolOnline and PokerStars this week.

Guaranteed prize pool for the 2014 Spring Championship of Online Poker, which begins on Sunday, May 4 and continue through to May 18. With 45 events – 135 tournaments spread across low, medium and high stakes – it is the largest online poker festival ever held. See attached image to find out which current Team PokerStars players have won SCOOP titles.
More info:

Lifetime VIP Player Points surpassed by Russian player Vladimir ‘shabalinvlad’ Shabalin. He is only the third player to pass the milestone total, having racked up 4.5 million VPPs last year alone, and a further 2 million already this year. The Frequent Player Points (FPPs) that he’s earned in the past year and a half is enough to get 10 Porsche Cayman S sports cars from the PokerStars VIP Store!
