After 8 months, the prestigious Swiss Championship of Poker returns to the Admiral Poker Room of the Casino of Mendrisio, which will award the new Swiss Poker Champion for the year 2023. The curtain had fallen on SCOP 2022 last September with the victory of Eduard Fondos in front of 517 participants. For this second edition in Mendrisio, the Admiral Poker Room has prepared an even more intense and attractive programme. The actual SCOP Main Event will be held from 24 May to 4 June and will have a guaranteed prize pool of €100,000, with a buy-in of €250 and 6 flight available to qualify for one of the two Day2s. The Final Day with winner announcement and prize presentation will be on Sunday 4 June. But the road to the SWISS Championship has already started since 1 February. In fact, every Wednesday at 8 p.m., at the Casino Admiral in Mendrisio there is a Road to SCOP with 5,000 Euro guaranteed and 3 SCOP tickets up for grabs for the first three finishers. The tournaments in the run-up to the big Road to SCOP event will take place until 17 May, the Wednesday before the start of the Main Event. The special feature is that the Road to SCOP tournament on 17 May will have a guaranteed prize pool of €10,000 and a €250 SCOP ticket for the top five finishers. It can almost already be considered a SCOP side event. Although there are also two other proper SCOP sides on the calendar. The first is now a great classic: SCOPLO, the Swiss Championship of Pot Limit Omaha, which will take place on Monday 29 May. The other is a great novelty: in fact, on Sunday 28 May, for the first time, the €20,000 guaranteed SCOP One will be played all in one day, as the name suggests. The day1s of the 100,000-guaranteed Main Event are visible in the calendar and it is already possible to reserve your seat by filling out the form on or by sending an e-mail to
