PokerStars announces TCOOP

ps_news_thn.jpgYou can't trade it on the stock exchange. You can't pay for your Big Macs with it. You can't even use it to pay off those golfing losses. Time is a commodity you can't buy. Now, however, PokerStars is going to allow you to become a real online champion at record pace and save some time in the process.

Today PokerStars announced TCOOP, the Turbo Championship of Online Poker. Running January 19-29 PokerStars' newest tournament series will kick off with 50 events. They will run the gamut of styles and games, but they will all have one thing in common: they will be fast-as-lightning turbo affairs.

Sure, we all love WCOOP. Since 2002, it's given PokerStars players a chance to become the most recognized tournament players in the world. SCOOP won our hearts, as well, after offering three different-sized buy-ins for every event. But winning most of those events could take a full day or more. TCOOP is a way to become a champion in just a few hours.

Indeed, there is something to be said for taking one's time, but the speed of TCOOP shouldn't make you doubt its legitimacy. If one thing has become clear in recent years, turbo events are the real deal, requiring a different kind of strategy, professional play, and lots of guts. There are 50 real online championships on the line here. Even better, just about any sized bankroll has a shot at year-changing money.

The inaugural TCOOP series will host several events every day and offer a total $10 million guaranteed.Buy-ins range from an affordable $5 all the way to the $2,000 High Roller. If you can't find something in that range to suit your taste, you're probably not looking hard enough.
