PokerStars releases tentative TCOOP schedule

Hello from the land of Online Championships!

The 2017 Turbo Championship of Online Poker is approaching (18-29 January 2017), and it's time once again for me to present the tentative schedule in order to give you an opportunity to provide feedback on what we've worked out so far. After much discussion, we're up to Version 6 of the TCOOP 2017 schedule, and I'm happy to inform you that we've got some exciting things in store, many of which are new to TCOOP, which is expanding this year to 65 Events (from 50 in 2016 and earlier).

New to TCOOP in 2017:

  • Bubble Rush Events: The structure plays fast until the payout bubble is reached, then things slow down.
  • Win the Button Events: The winner of each hand receives the button for the next hand.
  • TWO Phase Events: One NL Hold'em (on the last day instead of the first as it was 2016) and one NL Omaha Hi/Lo
  • TWO Players' Voice Events: One NL Hold'em and one non-NL Hold'em. More to follow on these in the near future.

As I always do at this time, I'd like to point out that we not only listen to feedback from our players on the Championship schedules we develop, we absolutely depend upon it!

If you'd like to comment on anything you see below (or anything you don't see but wish you did), please drop a line to tcoop at pokerstars dot com. Feedback will be collected for approximately one week before we finalize the schedule and start getting the Events ready.
