PokerStars Welcome 2012 with New Online Tournament

Every weekend at PokerStars tends to be exciting and despite the holidays the Christmas weekend was no exception. The Sunday Million easily covered the $1 million guarantee as did the Sunday Warm-up. The Christmas Sunday Million was eventually won by a lucky player from Turkey who banked almost $200,000.

PokerStars have announced that they will be running a Turbo Championship of Online Poker to welcome in the New Year.

However, now it is time to look forwards to next year and PokerStars are starting in style. They have just announced that they shall be running a tournament called Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) from Jan 19 – 29.

Up to fifty people can take part in the TCOOP which will be spread across 11 days; it has a massive guaranteed prize pool of $10 million. The championship promises to be open to players with any size of bankroll as buy-ins start from $5.50 and go all the way up to $2,100. The Main Event will have a buy in of $700 and a $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool.

TCOOP is going to be very similar to the Spring Championship of Online Poker and the World Championship of Online Poker, but will take place at a much faster pace. It is expected that the championship will attract both amateur and professional players due to the range of buy-ins. Every day between 4 – 6 tournaments will be taking place and completed in just a few hours, so for those who enjoy a fast paced game, the TCOOP is not to be missed.

Qualifying for the TCOOP is very simple; there are qualifier satellites already running and buy-ins begin at just $1. Anyone interested in participating can find all the details under the ‘Events’ section of the PokerStars website.

Every style of poker will be being played at TCOOP and with such low buy-ins and large prize pools it would be mad to miss out. Visit PokerStars today for a great start to 2012.
