The PokerStars 2015 Turbo Championship of Online Poker Main Event champion was crowned on Sunday, February 1, as Russian player ‘Nikki_Hefner’ won a first prize of $396,516.38. Despite making a deal with second-placed ‘riversousa’ from Brazil, the first prize of nearly $400k set a new record for largest single cash in a TCOOP event, beating the previous largest of $382,812 set in last year’s High Roller event.

A total of 4,169 players entered this year’s $700 NL Hold’em Main Event, which generated a prize pool of $2,772,385 – far in excess of the $2 million guarantee. Due to the fast-paced nature of the tournament, it was all over in just five hours, 11 minutes, which, for the winner, equated to an hourly rate of an astonishing $76,498.
