Ready, set...TCOOP 2014 starts tomorrow!
Don't close your eyes. Don't blink. In fact, you may just want to stay awake for a while so you don't miss anything. Why? Because these tournaments are going to go by pretty quickly.
The 2014 Turbo Championship of Online Poker begins tomorrow. On offer are 50 events that will guarantee a total of $15 million in prize money. The beauty of it? Every tournament is a turbo, and you can win life changing money in less time than it takes to go out for dinner and a movie. In the first two runnings, it took an average of two hours and ten minutes to make it to the money. One event finished in less than an hour and 40 minutes.
If you're up for a real challenge, make a run for the Player of the Series leader board. Here's what's on offer for the winners this year.
1st: Champion's Trophy + 2015 PCA prize package worth $16,500
2nd: 2014 SCOOP event ticket worth $5,200
3rd-4th: 2014 SCOOP event ticket worth $2,100
