The TCOOP Main Event on February 2 will more than likely blast through the $2m guarantee. The $700 buy in event also guarantees at least $300k for the winner.
The turbo events make for quick action. Over the last two TCOOPs, it took an average of 2 hrs and 10 mins to reach the money. The fastest event was a hyper turbo that was won in just 1 hr 37 mins.
Team PokerStars Pro, Lex Veldhuis said:
TCOOP has become an unmissable online festival for me, because the speed of the tournaments means you can win five- and even six-figure sums in just a few hours.
There are, as always, extra prizes for the tournament leaderboard winners:
PokerStars Daily Challenge
Throughout January PokerStars is also running a Daily Challenge promotion. $500k in give away money is on offer.
Players must opt in via their desktop or mobile client using Star Code “CHALLENGE”. For every Daily Challenge completed, PokerStars offers a ticket to the Daily Challenge All-in Shootout. This weird event doesn’t even require players to turn up.
Players are automatically all in on every hand until the tournament ends. A standard payout structure will automatically distribute $15k in prize money with $1k to the winner. Complete 10 or more Daily Challenges and get a free ticket to a $100k Final Challenge All-in Shootout which adds 10,000 exclusive PokerStars gifts to those competing.
The challenges are simple tasks. Those set for the next five days are:
