The tournament also offers one significant advantage over other online festivals, which is the speed of the action, specifically aiming at recreational players with less time to play and professional players trying to pick up on their hourly rate.
In the previous two TCOOP festivals, the average time that player took to “cash” was only 2,10 hours, relatively comparable with the quickest tournament so far, which was in a hyper-turbo and took just 1,37 hours.
It is already a tradition for the world’s largest poker site operating under British gambling laws to offer additional prizes to the top players.Thus those who are constantly successful during the tournament series, will be rewarded with extra prizes.
