PokerStars TCOOP and weekend review (1-28-13)

January 28, 2013

Breathe. It’s okay to breathe. TCOOP is over for 2013 and you have the rest of the year to recover. Put some ice on that mouse finger and waft some smelling salts under your nose.

The Turbo Championship of Online Poker was a huge success with 240,321 tournament entrants across the series contributing to a staggering $24,036,531.74 prize pool, up around $4.5m from last year. You can catch up with tournament reports from all 50 events by clicking here and you can also jump to the TCOOP website.

  • TCOOP Main Event racked up 5,060 entrants into its $700 Main Event with frma1103 coming out on top for $326,880.00 after a seven-way deal which saw all seven players pocket six-figure scores. Read the TCOOP Main Event final table report here.

  • In fact, you can check out all of this week’s winners of the key weekend tournaments. The Sunday Warm-Up took a change of tack and embraced the speedy nature of the series with five-minute blinds, and took just four-and-a-half hours to play out.

  • The Sunday Million, of course, remained unchanged with a its deep stacks and structure paying dividends to Popiedejopie who pocketed $191,995.69 for the win.

  • The most consistent players of every PokerStars series are rewarded and TCOOP’s no different. The leader board champ with 270 points is Tjepan who made two final tables out of 12 cashes ($79,819.16). Tjepan wins the champion’s trophy and a 2014 PCA package worth $16,500. Runner-up Tinas21 came close having played little more than half the events scoring an incredible – nay, incredulous – three final tables. The Norwegian picks up a 2013 SCOOP ticket worth $5,200. You can check out the full leader board and prizes (for the top 50) here.
