The 2014 Turbo Championship of Online Poker kicked off yesterday with four action-packed tournaments. The fast-paced tournament series is running until February 2, 2014, with over $15 million in prize money spread across 50 events! TCOOP offers buy-ins for all bankrolls and (as always) there are cheap satellites to all events running around the clock. The Main Event ($700 buy-in) is scheduled for February 2 and the winner is guaranteed to take home at least $300k from the $2 million prize pool!
These online series are a great innovation and it would be nice to be able to win a piece of the pot. I will be entering some of the satellites and hoping to win big for a little outlay.Good luck to all those who enter
"The Main Event ($700 buy-in) is scheduled for February 2 and the winner is guaranteed to take home at least $300k from the $2 million prize pool!"
Something not cool here. So, the ME buy-in actually more than three times as much as the Sunday Millions yet the guaranteed prize pool only two times as big? I know thats on every weekend and this is only once a year, but still, something wrong with the proportions IMO.
Great event and got the weekend to take a look a the opportunities available to me s will head off over to PS soon ANSI see what's happening this weekend and see if I can get the chance to get into the action and take home a few quid. Good luck to all who play in TCOOP.
I entered event 10 and all I can say is what a crap shoot. I was card dead as hell but some of the moves being made when I wasn't involved were atrocious, even from supernova players lol
One guy dumped all the way with AJs and rivered an ace against a legit flopped pair. I got dumped by a guy who was raising my BB every time, this time in MP so I blind shoved AI (turns out I had A5s) and he had 109o and hit a 10 on the flop. Dumb as fuck play, guess some people don't care to try and build a stack.
yea some of mtt play makes you want to cry inside really. Today i got kicked out by a guy who called my shove with Q6o, he got a full house ofc. QTQsomething and T on the river.
but thats not even one of worst hands ive seen, there was a guy calling every raise with just about any hand, once he won 3way pot with 36o, with pair of 6's which just shows what other people had and were shoving with.
all that makes you a bit sad because you are there trying to build stack, sometimes card dead and when you are forced to shove with something less than 'good', ofc you completely miss it and someone with 92o gets a fh or something like that.
it takes lots of selfcontrol to remain tiltfree but im good at staying tiltfree when it comes to mtts/sngs but cash games (zoom much more than normal ring games) make me go tilt in no time.
In fact i think i just played last zoom session today, ended up on 0 so havent actually lost anything. well, maybe my sanity but thats about it. Got rivered 2 times in a row with someone calling everything with gutshot, they just wont let it go regardless if they have to spend 10$ to keep their gutshot draw alive, on 2NL and ofc they get it almost every freaking time too -.-
end rant, not sure how i ended up talking about zoom on mtt topic, but ... just stay away from zoom. its evil, pure evil
