PokerStars’ TCOOP is now Turbo Series

by GS Admin Posted on 12 Jan, 2018

The Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) has been a very important tournament series on the online poker calendar since 2012. For the past six years, poker players who play on PokerStars have had the chance to kick off their year by playing in multiple high guarantee tournaments in the TCOOP each January.

However, they will no longer have the chance to win TCOOP titles as PokerStars has made a new announcement that the popular series will now be rebranded to just ‘Turbo Series‘, despite TCOOP’s success over the years. Also, the series will be pushed down to February, with tentative dates mentioned as 18th February to 4th March 2018. However, the official schedule is yet to be disclosed.

The inaugural TCOOP had guaranteed $10 million in total payouts but it smashed the guarantee, with over $19 million in guarantees, followed by a guarantee of over $24 million the next year. All four years after that saw guarantees above $15 million in prizes. Here’s a look at the main event winners since the inaugural TCOOP:

  • 2012 – ‘betudontbet’ – $382,855
  • 2013 – ‘frma1103’ – $326,880
  • 2014 – ‘Riverlan_88’ – $277,526
  • 2015 – ‘Nikki_Hefner’ – $396,516
  • 2016 – Dinesh ‘NastyMinder’ Alt – $396,691
  • 2017 – ‘maxv2’ – $489,076

Last year, ‘maxv2’ won a massive amount as the main event buy-in was increased from $700 to $1,000. He/she had to beat a total field of 3,583 entries to win this prize and will always remain the biggest winner in TCOOP history.

Along with the announcement of the Turbo Series, PokerStars also made the announcement of special anniversary editions of their Sunday Storm and Sunday Millions tournaments on 4th February. These tournaments will have massive guarantees of $1 million and $10 million respectively.
