PokerStars high octane festival, TCOOP, kicks off later today and by the time the day comes to a close four champions will have been crowned.
Offering a guaranteed prizepool of at least $15 million across 50 events, the Turbo Championship of Online Poker will see some of the game's top players compete with daily grinders in events with buy-ins ranging from $27 to $700. Today's opening session will see four tournaments take place and at least $1.8 million distributed to players, but as the series progresses that number will increase dramatically as things crescendo towards the Main Event. Scheduled to get underway on February 2nd, the $700 tournament will have a prizepool of at least $2 million and the winner will be guaranteed a minimum payout of $300,000. At present just over 150 players have registered for the event, but with satellites running around the clockand starting from just $1 it's likely that number will increase significantly in the coming days. To add a final layer of icing to the TCOOP cake, PokerStars is also offering a PCA prize package worth $16,500 to the player who finishes highest on the performance leaderboard. On top of this a host of other prizes will be given to any player who can make it into the top 50 on the leaderboard. For those who work, or just don't like grinding four hours on end, TCOOP offers a great chance to win some money in a short space of time. Indeed, last year the average running time for events was less than two hours. Moreover, one tournament managed to crown a winner in less than one hour 40 minutes. New players can join the TCOOP action at PokerStars with a 100% first deposit bonus of up to £400. Sign up at PokerStars.
