TCOOP 2016: New titles from Down Under to Deutschland

It started in Brazil with a man who turned $27 into $110,000. Before we could blink, the phenomenon had moved to Hungary where $82 became more than $12,000. Next was Australia and $215 exploding to $58,000. Then it bounced back to Germany for an $82 into $47,000 score.

This is how the Turbo Championship of Online Poker works. At dinner, you have a little money. Before bed, you have a heck of a lot more. It's the fastest championship series in online poker, and it began yesterday afternoon with a historic three-phase kickoff that drew more than 53,000 players. The winner, Brazil's Helio "hneves182" Neves, made $110,000 in the span of just a few hours.
