Check out the PokerSchoolOnline TCOOP promotion where you can win $109 TCOOP tickets!

The 2015 Turbo Championship of Online Poker is underway with three players in with a chance of becoming the first PokerStars Grand Slam winner (TCOOP, SCOOP, WCOOP and Sunday Million titles).

The trio – David ‘Gunslinger3’ Bach, Paul ‘paulgees81’ Volpe and Andrey ‘Kroko-dill’ Zaichenko – each need just a TCOOP title to scoop both the ‘Triple COOP’ and ‘Grand Slam’ titles at the same time. With 50 events to take a shot at, they have a great chance to make online poker history.

Two other players – Shawn ‘buck21’ Buchanan and James ‘Andy McLEOD’ Obst – have already taken Triple COOP honours, but face the much more difficult task of winning a Sunday Million (6,000+ runners once a week) to clinch the Grand Slam.

A further 39 PokerStars players can become a ‘Triple COOP’ champion during TCOOP if they manage to win one of the events.

The focal point of TCOOP is the $700 No Limit Hold’em Main Event, which takes place on February 1 at 15.30 ET, and has a $2 million guarantee, with a minimum of $300,000 for first place. The full schedule of 50 events can be viewed online – – but below is a list of some of the highlights, including one or two new tournament additions:
