Turbo Series Replaces TCOOP
Earlier this year, PokerStars revealed its plan to replace the popular Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) with the newly formed Turbo Series. And now, for the first time since poker launched in the Garden State, New Jersey has its own version.
The 28-event, $250,000 guaranteed New Jersey Turbo Series will run Feb. 22 to March 4. Buy-ins will range from $15 to $150 and include fast structures in most standard formats and some novelty formats including bubble rush, big stacks, and zoom.
The series opens Feb. 22 with the $150 buy-in, $15,000 Kickoff event and closes March 4 with a $100 buy-in, $25,000 guaranteed Main Event.
These two events bookend an affordable series that is sure to draw large crowds and produce big prize pools. And while buy-ins start at $15, there are satellites and qualifiers running to help you win a seat for less.
A Busy New Jersey Tournament Calendar
It’s an active month for online poker tournaments in New Jersey with the 57-event New Jersey Poker Classic at 888poker currently underway. And there’s the potential for another big series on the horizon, with the anticipated Garden State Super Series (GSSS) from Borgata and partypoker expected in March.
This is good news for New Jersey-based players. More options mean more players which bodes well for the tournament numbers and online poker as a whole.
Inaugural New Jersey Turbo Series Schedule
The Turbo Series schedule includes two daily events Monday through Friday, along with three events on Saturdays and four events on Sundays. All tournaments are no-limit hold’em unless otherwise noted and, of course, all times are Eastern.
Make note that the schedule is subject to change. The most recent schedule will be published in the PokerStars client. You can read the complete terms and conditions for the New Jersey Turbo Series here.
