TCOOP Event #45: $109 NL Hold’em
Another TCOOP event, another monster-sized prize pool! Almost three thousand (2,941) players bought in for $109, which smashed the $125,000 guarantee.

TCOOP Event #46: $215 Sunday Warm-Up TCOOP Special
The Sunday Warm-Up is a well-attended tournament at the best of times, but it seems if you call something “special” and add a turbo format to it, the players go crazy for it! In total, 5,157 players bought in and built a $1,031,400 prize pool, meaning the top two finishers would pick up six-figure scores for less than five hours work!
|7||T 54 T 97s||$23,206.50|
TCOOP Event #47: $2,100 NL Hold’em High Roller
The $2,100 High Roller attracted, as you would expect, some of the finest poker players this game has to offer. And no wonder. The $2,190,000 prize pool created by the 1,095 entrants would attract anyone who thought they had any sort of an edge in this game. It would be a simpler task to list the big names who were not in the tournament! Here’s the final table results.
TCOOP Event #48: $320 8-Game
Mixed games were on the agenda for the 48th event of this year’s TCOOP, 8-Game to be exact. A field of 620 runners built a prize pool of $186,000, the majority of which was shared between glosik of Ukraine and NAR74 of Russia when they split the remaining prize pool heads-up.

TCOOP Event #49: $700 NL Hold’em Main Event
The TCOOP Main Event obliterated its $2 million guarantee because by the time registration had closed, 5,060 players had bought in and that meant $3,364,900 was being played for. Absolutely fantastic.
The final seven-players on the final table opted to chop the prize pool up, leaving $40,000 aside for the eventual champion. That champion is Sweden’s “frma1103”. Congratulations!

The Hyper-Turbo format saw this large field reduced to just one in a two hours eleven minutes! This means the eventual champion, pierrott77, won $947.16 for every MINUTE he was sat down!
