Posted at 09:05 2013-01-25 by Matthew Pitt
The Turbo Championship Of Online Poker (TCOOP) sped through its seventh day of action, leaving in its wake takes of bad beats, suckouts, but more importantly large wins in short spaces of time! Here’s a recap of the action.
TCOOP Event #28: $82 NL Hold’em 2xChance
Over three thousands players took to the virtual felt for the 28th event of the TCOOP – 3,111 to be exact – and they created a massive prize pool of $336,750. This money was shared out among the top 396 finishers, a min-cash being worth $191.94 and the eventual champion claiming $53,039.67.
The tournament kicked off at 13:00WET and by 17:01WET it was completed! The player to win all of the chips in play was the United Kingdom’s “khanrava.”
Knockout events are very popular on PokerStars and the Super-Knockouts, which feature a larger bounty, are even more so. Event #29 saw $103 of the buy-in go towards the prize pool and an additional $103 go on the head of each player as a bounty.
After just over two hours, former Team PokerStars Pro Joep “Pappe_Ruk” van den Bijgaart had won all of the chips in play to be awarded $18,797.50 in prize money. “Pappe_Ruk” also eliminated 13 players along the way and won an additional $1,339. Not a bad hourly rate at all!
TCOOP Event #30: $11+R PL Omaha 6-Max 3x-Turbo
Despite only featuring an $11 buy-in, admittedly it was a rebuy event, Event #30 of the TCOOP still boasted a $295,200 prize pool! This was thanks to the 5,083 entrants rebuying 21,830 times and purchasing 2,607 add-ons! Surprisingly, there was no chop in this event and the final payouts were as they were originally planned, the champion winning $45,019.74 for four-and-a-half hour’s work!
TCOOP Event #31: $27 Stud Hi/Lo
Event #31 switched focus to Seven-card Stud, but not just any stud format, the hi/low split edition! This tournament attracted 2,668 players to the virtual felt, creating a prize pool of $65,499.40. Again there were no chops in the prize pool, the champion walking away with an impressive $11,137.51.
