PokerStars Releases Schedule for $15 Million GTD Turbo Series

PokerStars Releases Schedule for $15 Million GTD Turbo Series 0001

While the popular Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) at PokerStars is no more, the concept lives on, rebranded as the Turbo Series. The new series features an array of 74 fast-structured events ranging in buy-ins from $11 to $5,200.

The action-packed series, which runs from Feb. 18 through March 4, offers $15 million in guarantees and a whopping $90,000 in added value in the form of three Platinum Passes to the $9 million added PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship.

“The Turbo Series is a great opportunity for players of all levels to play in a fun and fast-paced series that is guaranteed to be one of the most enjoyable events of the year,” said PokerStars Director of Poker Innovation and Operations Severin Rasset.
