The 2013 Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) kicked off yesterday and already 4 events are in the books. TCOOP will run until January 27 and a massive $15,000,000 prize pool is spread across 50 fast-paced turbo events.
There are tournaments in Hold'em, Omaha, HORSE and more, all with short blind levels and played in different formats (Hyper-Turbo and 3x-Turbo tournament etc). As always, there are satellites running around the clock at PokerStars, so you only need to deposit a few dollars to take a shot at the big tournaments, where some serious cash is up for grabs!
Last year 1,450 players won their seats in the Main Event through satellites, and 191 of them cashed! This year's Main Event will be played on January 27 and $2,000,000 is guaranteed by PokerStars. The Main Event buy-in is $700, but thanks to cheap satellites, you can win your seat for a fraction of the buy-in.
Need some advice on how to play turbo tournaments? Here is a tip from Friends of PokerStars Charlotte "Sjlot" Van Brabander, who juggles school and poker - just like many other poker players out there.
"My advice is not to be scared. Players cannot wait forever for good hands, so you have to look for spots to put on the pressure. Look at the stack sizes of your enemies and make a play. Short stacks will be ready to gamble a little more!"
