And few are more excited than Team PokerStars member Lex Veldhuis who said, “I was very excited when I heard about TCOOP. Turbos are some of my favorite tournaments to play. There is a lot of action and decision-making involved. They also don’t take all day, which I find very pleasant.”

Veldhuis finished by saying, “The cool thing about a turbo tournament series is also that you get to play certain games in a turbo format.” You can join the Dutch poker star on the TCOOP tables along with other Team PokerStars players starting on January 19th.
