TCOOP Day 3: Another $1.18MM Awarded to Players!

TCOOP

The Turbo Championship Of Online Poker (TCOOP) blasted through its third day of play, completing four more tournaments and awarding a staggering $1,180,211.40 in prize money. Here’s how the events played out on Day 3.

TCOOP Event #9: $82 PL Omaha Knockout

The TCOOP switched to the crazy game with four hole cards, Omaha, for the 12th event and it attracted a crowd of 2,742 players. Although impressive, the total number of entrants left PokerStars with a shortfall in the prize money as the $200,000 guarantee was not met. Obviously, PokerStars happy stumped up and a $30,000+ overlay was taken advantage of.

The tournament paid 360 place, which makes Mickey “mement_mori” Petersen’s 362nd place finish an even more bitter pill to take. Not as bad as “HITTHEPANDA” in 361st though!

High stakes cash game specialist Ignat “0human0” Liviu claimed two bounties on his way to finishing 185th – the same number of bounties as Jon “EMSBas” Spinks who finished 113rd. Team PokerStars Online’s Dale “Daleroxxu” Philip (26th) was one of the highest profile players to go deep in this exciting evemt.

The eventual champion was “viticov” who in addition to the $30,516.70 he won for taking down the tournament – after a two-way chop – claimed the scalps of 14 opponents.

TCOOP Event #10: $11+R NL Hold’em 3x-Turbo

Event #10 gave players the chance to win a slice of a massive $610,340.00 prize pool for as little as $11! This gigantic prize pool was created by the 14,538 players who between then rebought 39,453 times and purchased 7,043 add-ons! Impressive figures we are sure you will agree.

The tournament paid out 2,025 spots, a min-cash being worth $67.13 and the first place prize set at $76,302.45. The original pay structure was altered at the final table when the last three players agreed to chop up the remaining prize pool; each of them guaranteed themselves at least $55,145.90.

The eventual champion was the United Kingdom’s Thomas “GaggleoKings” Ambler who will log onto his PokerStars account today to find an extra $58,737.00 sat in there.

TCOOP Event #11: $109 NL Hold’em Heads-Up

Heads-Up tournaments are extremely popular, so when PokerStars decided to slap a $200,000 guarantee on the $109 one-on-one tournament of the TCOOP it was no surprise that 3,083 players bought in.

Reaching the money places were players such as Team PokerStars Pro Christophe “chrisdm” De Meulder; Scott “BigRiskky” Clements; Chris “Moorman1” Moorman and heads-up specialist Olivier “Adonis112” Busquet.

Team PokerStars Pro, and brother to fellow pro Christophe, Matthias De Meulder almost went all the way in TCOOP Event #11, but he busted out in the penultimate round to finish fourth; a result that was good for $15,415.00.

The eventual winner was “gorglav” of Russia who defeated “cannotletgo” of Canada in the final. The two players opted to split the remaining prize pool and leave $4,000 for whoever won the last match. The final eight places were paid out as follows:

TCOOP Event #12: $27 Triple Stud

The popularity of Stud games may be on the decline, but you would be forgiven for thinking differently if you checked in on the 12th event of TCOOP. The $27 buy-in Triple Stud event attracted a massive field of 2,508 players who created a prize pool of $61,571.40.

A large percentage of the prize pool, $10,468.90 to be exact, went to “powerhockey” of Austria, Event #12’s champion. Powerhockey defeated his fellow Austrian, “XIAZHAO” heads-up to claim the title and the substantial first place prize.
