In any event, one of the defining traits of PokerStars has been the diversity of options, competitive formats and innovative approach to the game – from the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), to the virtual reality competitions adopted by the platform, to their Spring Championship Online Poker (SCOOP).

Now, there are complementary Turbo Series, which will bring the solid $25 million to the table spread across 114 events. The competition will run from February 3 through February 17.

Making the Actual Cut

In true PokerStars spirit, the entry-level will be quite accessible, with the buy-ins varying between $11 and $5,200 a pop. The tournament will also feature progress knockout events, which will come with heftier prize pools and steeper buy-ins.

The $1,050 Main Event comes with $2 million in guaranteed prize money, but you needn’t worry about fitting the bill. PokerStars offers players $2.50 tickets to the Turbo Series events, as long as you manage to clear the qualifying competitions.

PokerStars’ special Spin & Go’s allow anyone who has won a ticket from these events to participate either in the Turbo Series or join in the satellites.

There are other community-focused initiatives that can still get players an entry into the fray, including the “biggest bluff” , whereby players get to share how they’ve bluffed their way into the tournament for extra rewards.

Over $3 Million in Final Events Action

Apart from the big Main Event, there’s a second one which will be held on the same day, January 17. The buy-in to the smaller Main Event is just $55, making for an accommodating and affordable way into the event.

The Turbo Series is just a part of what PokerStars has prepared for its followers and player base in February. There will be other watershed pow-wows, including the Sunday Million and Sunday Storm, which will together bring the total prize pool to $75 million over the span of the tournament period.
