Denmark's Tjepan Snags TCOOP POY and 2014 PCA Package
Danish player Tjepan won the 2013 TCOOP Player of the Year race, narrowly edging out Tinas21 from Norway and Canada's Faith#1Virtue.
Tjepan received the TCOOP POY trophy as well as a 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package worth $16,500.
Tjepan played an incredible 46 out of the 50 TCOOP events to win the POY.
Runner-up Tinas21 played just 28 events and took a 2013 SCOOP ticket worth $5,300. Third-place finisher Faith#1Virtue snagged a SCOOP ticket worth $2,100.
Tjepan will be looking to follow in 2012 WCOOP POY Mikal Blomlie's footsteps by turning that PCA freeroll into even more money in the Bahamas.
