PokerStars' 2014 Turbo Championship of Online Poker Begins Today!

To the excitement of grinders everywhere, PokerStars kicks off the third annual Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) today. The fast-paced series runs through Feb. 2 and features $15 million in guarantees across 50 events.

"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," said Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis. "Plus, the wide range of games and tournament formats means there's always something different to play each day."

The keystone event of 50-tournament series is the $700 NL Hold'em Main Event on Feb. 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.
