Thursday January 9,2014 : LATEST TURBO CHAMPIONSHIP OF ONLINE POKER LAUNCHED
Pokerstars released schedule for its third annual TCOOP.
Isle of Man-based online poker company Pokerstars has released the schedule for its third annual Turbo Championship of Online Poker , which will take place from January 23 to February 2 and guarantee $15 million across 50 events.
The headline tournament is the $700 buy-in NL Hold’em Main Event on February 2, which features a $2 million guaranteed prize pool and at least $300,000 for first place.
Other highlights of the festival include a $2,100 buy-in NL Hold’em High Roller event (also Feb 2) with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, and two opening day events – $27 buy-in NL Hold’em [6-Max] and a $215 buy-in NL Hold’em [Knockout] – that both feature $750,000 guarantee prize pools.
For recreational players who have less time to play, and professional players looking to improve their hourly rate, TCOOP offers one major advantage over other online festivals – the pace of the action. During the previous two TCOOP festivals, the average time it took for a player to ‘cash’ was just 2 hours 10 minutes, while the quickest tournament ever was in a hyper-turbo that took just 1 hour 37 minutes.
In common with every major Pokerstars festival, there are additional prizes available for players who do consistently well during the series, with a Player of the Series Leader Board rewarding the top players handsomely.
PokerStars is running online qualifiers to every event in the TCOOP series, with cash buy-ins starting from $0.22 and Frequent Player Point buy-ins from 5 FPP.
