Hold onto your hats because today marks the start of the latest edition of the Turbo Championship Of Online Poker (TCOOP) on PokerStars.
As the name suggests, TCOOP is an online poker festival where each of its 50 events are played to either a turbo or hyper-turbo blind structure! If you are an action junkie or love the idea of turning $55 into almost $69,000 in around four hours like Toby Lewis did, then TCOOP is for you.
The TCOOP kicks off tonight with the first four of its events. Starting the ball rolling, at 17:00 WET, is a $27 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max tournament that boasts a massive $750,000 guaranteed prize pool! At time of writing, 10,600 players have already bought in and PokerNews will not be surprised if the guarantee is obliterated by the time the first cards are dealt.
The second TCOOP event of the night is a $55 buy-in No Limit Omaha Hi/Lo that sports a $150,000 guarantee. Omaha is a crazy game at the best of times, so throw into the mix a no limit betting structure and binds that increase every five minutes and it will be complete madness!
Event #3 starts at 21:00 and is the $215 No Limit Hold’em Knockout tournament. In addition to playing for a guaranteed prize pool of $750,000, players will also receive $41.25 for each player they eliminate from the tournament. Knockout tournaments are great fun and can see you freeroll your way to the money places of you bust out a few opponents during your time at the virtual felt.
The last TCOOP event of the day opens its doors at 23:00, but do not allow that to put you off because the $55 No Limit Hold’em tournament should be over in a couple of hours. PokerStars is guaranteeing a $300,000 despite the late kick off time.
