PokerStars weekend review (January 27, 2014): Dan Smith, Sam Stein, Steven Silverman and Kevin MacPhee among the TCOOP heroes

Every weekend is a hectic one at PokerStars, but when a COOP sets out its stall things get really busy - that's without factoring in, you know, the EPT Deauville festival and the Aussie Millions. The Turbo Championship of Online TCOOP has revved its engine and put rubber to track: 19 of its 50 events have already played out, but there's still time to play.

The TCOOP 2014 schedule

Among the heavy hitters who have picked up big TCOOP scores are Dan Smith, Sam Stein, Steven Silverman and Kevin MacPhee. The first two have won titles at the expense of the other two. Stein beat MacPhee heads-up in TCOOP-04, while Smith reigned supreme in TCOOP-17 to win $125,146.32. Silverman followed it shortly after with a runner-up in TCOOP-19 for $88,000, so it's not all bad for the American.

There were, of course, plenty of regular paced tournaments playing this weekend, too. Timvn2008 went wire-to-wire to win $187k in the Sunday Million and RichieA7s pocketed a bankroll boosting $86,263.68 in the Sunday Warm-Up.

Take a look at the big weekend results.
