PokerStars Turbo Series Results and Platinum Pass Update

  • PokerStars Turbo Series wrapped up 74 events, with "€urop€an" and "soumi7" claiming two titles each.

The PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker may be no more, but the new Turbo Series that replaced it just wrapped up after a big couple of weeks awarding over $25 million — well past the $15 million guarantee — in prizes across 74 events.

Diligent PokerNews readers already know that "L1VeYRdrEamS" won the $1,050 Main Event for nearly $400,000 and a Platinum Pass to the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold'em Championship.

However, that was but one of the dozens of big scores attained by players the world over during the course of the series.

As usual for a big PokerStars online series, plenty of big names fought their way to the tops of vast fields to attain titles. David "davaman" Lopez, Nick "FU_15" Maimone, Shawn "buck21" Buchanan, Vladimir "vovtroy" Troyanovskiy, Niklas "Lena900" Astedt, Scott "Aggro Santos" Margereson, Jussi "calvin7v" Nevanlinna and Alexandros "mexican222" Kolonias were among those booking wins.

Multiple-Event Winners

Perhaps most notable, however, was the strong performance of Samuel "€urop€an" Vousden. Vousden, currently ranked third in the world on PocketFives online poker rankings, was already the proud owner of a handful of major wins in PokerStars' big online series. He added two more wins in the Turbo Series.

First, he won Event #26: $530 No-Limit Hold'em, topping a field of 683 for $45,598, officially coming out in front in what looks to have been a three-way chop. He followed up with a win over a field of 913 in Event #47: $530 No-Limit Hold'em Progressive KO for $69,989.

The player "soumi7" also showed out with a pair of wins. He or she took down Event #45: $109 Fixed Limit Six-Max for $8,696 and Event #63: $55 Six-Max for $14,317, beating a field of 3,268.
