PokerStars today announced the schedule for the third annual Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP), which will take place from January 23 to February 2 and guarantee $15 million across 50 events.

The headline tournament is a $700 NL Hold’em Main Event on February 2, which features a $2 million guaranteed prize pool and at least $300,000 for first place. Other highlights of the festival include a $2,100 NL Hold’em High Roller event (also Feb 2) with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, and two opening day events – $27 NL Hold’em (6-Max), $215 NL Hold’em (Knockout) – that both feature $750,000 guarantee prize pools. For a full schedule, go to //psta.rs/1ehNp0s.

Team PokerStars Pro, Lex Veldhuis, is looking forward to the series: “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. Plus, the wide range of games and tournament formats means there’s always something different to play each day.”

FAST CASH
For recreational players who have less time to play, and professional players looking to improve their hourly rate, TCOOP offers one major advantage over other online festivals – the pace of the action. During the previous two TCOOP festivals, the average time it took for a player to ‘cash’ was just 2 hours 10 minutes, while the quickest tournament ever was in a hyper-turbo that took just 1 hour 37 minutes.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR
As with every major PokerStars festival, there are additional prizes available for players who do consistently well during the series, with a Player of the Series Leader Board awarding the following:

1st: Champion’s Trophy + 2015 PCA prize package worth $16,500
2nd: 2014 SCOOP event ticket worth $5,200
3rd-4th: 2014 SCOOP event ticket worth $2,100
5th-10th: 2014 SCOOP Main Event (Medium) ticket worth $1,050
