Blink and you might miss the upcoming PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker.

The recently announced series will include 50 tournaments from Jan. 19-29, 2012, that will all take place at a break-neck pace.

Although the focus is on small buy-in tournaments the TCOOP should provide something for everyone with buy-ins ranging from $5 all the way up to the $2,000 high roller.

A full assortment of PokerStars many games will also be on display with standards No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha as well as more obscure versions such as Five-Card Draw, Triple Stud and 8-game.

Players looking for a giant turbo razz tournament will finally be able to rest easy after the TCOOP.

All those maniacs who just can’t get enough action will be happy to know that not only are there turbo tournaments but there will also be a number of hyper-turbo tournaments.
