Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP)


Do you like action? I hope so because the inaugural PokerStars TCOOP (Turbo Championship of Online Poker) is about to begin and this isn't your grandmother's tournament series. The faint-hearted among you need not apply.

The next 11 days will see 50 turbo championship events being played out with $10,000,000 in guarantees. That is sure to make for the kind of heart racing, adrenaline pumping action that has never been seen before in the history of poker.

The turbo MTTs have been hugely popular for quite a while so it's great that PokerStars has dedicated a series to them. I'm excited knowing that for a small financial outlay and time commitment I have the chance to bink some huge scores over the next 11 days.

It can be extremely difficult to set aside the time to play in regular speed tournaments, and for that reason I almost never play them them. The TCOOPs are likely to run in the 3-6 hour range and that is perfect for me. I also think the TCOOP structures will suit me a lot. Having played so many turbo SNGs I think that I'm as good as anyone in the world when it comes to playing with shallow stacks. So I'm ready to crush these TCOOPs!

Check out the TCOOP Schedule and give me a shout out on twitter @Daleroxxu to let me know what event you are most looking forward to. For me it has to be Event #2 - No Limit Omaha Hi/Lo, it doesn't get more action-junky friendly than that! I also plan on playing every $22 buyin event. PokerStars has been handing out thousands of free $22 TCOOP tickets to depositors over the last couple of weeks so these events are going to be insanely soft. So my seatbelt is fastened and I'm ready to manoeuvre my way through the thousands of donke... ehh I mean obstacles that stand between me and the finish line.
