[CAPTION=98%]
Anybody following the first seven days of action from the PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker action will probably be somewhat surprised to learn that Brazilian players failed to win a TCOOP title on Tuesday – but they came as close as they could.

Through the first four events on the Tuesday schedule, there had only been one Brazilian player at a final table. Gustavo ‘22ehnutzz’ Mastelotto outlasted 1,636 other players in Event #33, $27+R/A No Limit Hold’em Little Splash, before busting out in fifth place.

The event was won by British grinder ‘PoluKalos’ for $20,044.30 after agreeing to a heads-up chop with ‘BuckFitchez’ that left $2,815 to play for. Having sent the previous six players to the rail, it seemed only fitting that ‘PoluKalos’ finished things off and eliminated ‘BuckFitchez’ in second place after just a few minutes of heads-up play.

It was almost back-to-back wins for players from the United Kingdom as Event #34, $82 Eight Max Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo with bounties, came down to Austria’s ‘Leukotape’ and the UK’s Jack ’MrMTucker’ Allison. Thanks to the turbo format, the final two players didn’t play too long to decide a winner with ‘Leukotape’ collecting the final bounty by eliminating ‘MrMTucker’ in second to win $6,122.49 and the first ‘COOP title of his career. Former #1-ranked Andreas ‘mrAndreeew’ Berggren also made the final table, finishing seventh for $894.16.

Brazilian’s may have been held off of the winner’s podium on Tuesday, but the other country dominating 2017 TCOOP wasn’t. Sweden’s ‘K123K’ beat out 646 other players in Event #35, $82 Seven Card Stud, to win $8,470.13. Dainius ‘Dainiux’ Antanaitis finished runner-up for $6,146.45.

Event #36, the biggest buy-in event of the day at $700, came down to three players agreeing to an ICM chop, leaving $12,182.80 on the table along with the title. After taking the chip leader’s share of the chop, Hungary’s ‘gzp74’ eliminated ‘pistecaloze’ in third place and ‘LA KOVE’ in second to grab the title and a total of $85,497.01.

After being shut out from the first four events, the Brazil’s made a strong charge in Event #37, the $320 No Limit Hold’em Fat Tuesday Special Edition. Luiz ‘AcePheres’ Feres, who finished third in Event #3 for $26,382, and Guilerme Ksyvickis ‘’GuiKsy07’ Bordao, both represented the South American nation at this final table. Bordao was eliminated in sixth but Feres managed to make it to heads-up with ‘luismi1912’. The pair agreed to a chop based on chip counts and played heads-up for $12,612 and the title. Feres wasn’t able to overcome ‘luismi1912’ and was eventually eliminated in second place for $72,869.71 while ‘luismi1912’ ended up with the title and $89,640.39.
