Day 8 of the PokerStarsTurbo Championship Of Online Poker (TCOOP) has been and gone in a flash, crowning four new champions and boosting the bankrolls of thousands of players. Do you want to know who the biggest winners were in Events #32 through 35? Then keep on reading to find out.
TCOOP Event #32: $7.50+R NL Hold’em 3x-Turbo
Over 19,000 players took to the PokerStars felt for Event #32 – 19,067 to be exact – and they made a staggering 59,553 rebuys and purchased 9,472 add-ons! This meant the $400,000 guaranteed prize pool (remember this is a $7.50 tournament) was obliterated and $600,787.44 was up for grabs.
Despite the massive field, the tournament was completed in just six hours and five minutes, which means “Pookezz” of Sweden, the champion, won over $10,800 per hour!
TCOOP Event #33: $27 Razz
Razz is not a game you usually associate with turbo formats, but this is the TCOOP after all. A field of 2,866 players bought in for $27 and created a $70,851.30 prize pool that was shared out among the top 368 players.
The eventual winner was “jamari” of Russia who walk ed away with $10,187.38 after a three-way chop with “dezho” of the Czech Republic and “BAZON-dima”, also of Russia.

TCOOP Event #34: $215 NL Hold’em 2xChance
PokerStars slapped a $400,000 guarantee onto Event #34, but there was never any fears that it would not be met. A total 2,816 players bought in before registration was over, setting the prize pool at an impressive $798,400.
This particular event ended in a four way chop, but due to how the chips were distributed at the time, “Crim44” in third place walked away with almost $30,000 more than the eventual champion, “Risco Zero” !
OU THE NICK
TCOOP Event #35: $82 PL Omaha 4-Max
Pot Limit Omaha is crazy enough at the best of time, so through in a turbo blind structure and seat everyone at four-handed tables and you have a recipe for a complete nut-job of a game! There were 2,187 players who risked their sanity, and $82, to compete in this event and they helped to build a prize pool of $164,025.00.
