[caption width="450"] Robin 'robinho' Ylitalo won his second career TCOOP title[/caption] The PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker rolled on like a runaway freight train on Thursday, with four more events and four more winners. This time around, a top-50 ranked player earned his second TCOOP title. Robin 'robinho' Ylitalo, also known as 'inhoo', earned $85,000 for the win in a $700 No Limit Hold'em Eight-Max Progressive Ultra Knockout after a heads-up deal with Canada's 'marlin5555'. Ylitalo is on the cusp of hitting $6 million in career online tournament winnings and is #40 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, 37 spots off his all-time high. The Swede also won a $27 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Max Quad TCOOP event in 2013 for $27,000. Ylitalo came into the eight-max final table third in chips, but quickly assumed the lead after knocking out 'viktorrz' in sixth place. Ylitalo had A-J to A-9 in the hand after the money went in pre-flop. 'viktorrz' flopped a nine to take the lead, but the eventual winner hit a jack on the river to take the chip lead. In the end, Ylitalo earned $41,000 plus $43,000 in bounties, as 'viktorrz's' bounty was worth $25,000 by itself. The Swede, who according to his Twitter was in Mexico, posted a video of his post-game celebration dance. In Event #32, a $7.50 No Limit Hold'em 3x Turbo Rebuy, 'SKD20™' came away with the win after being one of two massive chip leaders entering the final nine. There were 6,806 entrants, 23,563 rebuys, and 4,037 add-ons, which pumped the prize pool all the way to $234,000. The winner is also known as 'DONKAROO' and now has $306,000 in tracked winnings. Heads-up, 'SKD20™' had to battle back from a 3:2 chip deficit. In the final hand, Georgia's 'zeruka' 3bet shoved with 8-7 on a flop of 8-2-6, but 'SKD20™' had him out-kicked with 9-8. The turn and river were blanks and 'SKD20™' won his first TCOOP title and $36,000. Event #33, also held on Thursday, was an $82 Razz Turbo. Entering the final table, the average stack was less than three big bets and a deal was struck three-handed. Despite trailing 2:1 in chips entering heads-up play, 'aramesko' won the TCOOP title in just 12 hands. On the final one, the money went in on fourth street, with 'aramesko' showing 10-7 to K-Q for the win. First place was worth $7,900 after the three-way chop. Finally, Event #35 was a $27 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Max Rebuy that had 1,602 entrants, 4,082 rebuys, and 1,080 add-ons for a total prize pool of $166,000. There was also a heads-up deal in this tournament, which ended with 'FrederickH.' from the Netherlands winning his first TCOOP title and $22,000. 'FrederickH.' was the chip leader entering the six-max final table and, after the deal was struck, only ten hands were needed to determine a winner. 'FrederickH.' went wire-to-wire on the final hand, leading from start to finish. According to the chat log, he plans to buy his wife a new ring with his winnings, as he originally "bought [a] really old one." Mazel tov.

[caption width="640"] Robin ‘robinho’ Ylitalo has three career TCOOP titles after his win on Friday afternoon (PokerStars photo)[/caption] For the second year in a row, and the third time in his career, Sweden’s Robin ‘robinho’ Ylitalo found himself as the last player standing in a PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker event on Friday. Day 3 of the 2017 TCOOP also saw the continuation of the Brazil vs. Sweden storyline from the first two days of play with Ylitalo leading the way for his home country and a previous ‘COOP winner doing the same for Brazil. Rodrigo ‘caprioli’ Caprioli has won three Spring Championship of Online Poker Titles in his career and on Friday night added a TCOOP title to his collection. Caprioli beat out 1,411 other players to win Event #11, $82 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha Progressive KO. The Brazilian earned $8,122.47 for the win plus an additional $4,051.22 in bounties. He beat out a final table that included Arthur ‘goddy arthur’ Wolffkeppler, Tauras ‘Lecher1991’ Narmontas and eventual runner-up Rory ‘Reesy’ Rees. Caprioli’s win is the third TCOOP victory for Brazil this year, adding to the wins by Renato Akio ‘kaneoya’ Kaneoya and Murilo 'Muka82' Figueiredo on Day 1. Konstantinos ‘tsikwz’ Tsikopoulos navigated his way through four different tables to win Event #12, the $82 Six Max No Limit Hold'em Shootout, and added $10,494 to his career earnings. Tsikopoulos played heads-up with Ukrainian 'Tiggrron' for over an hour before emerging victorious. ‘tekelson221’ came into the final table of Event #13, $27 No Limit Hold'em w/rebuys (Win the Button), with the chip lead but stood by and watched other players do the heavy lifting until only three players remained. By this point ‘tekelson221’ was the short stack but after a few key hands lead to double up, the Slovakian was back on top and eliminated Peter "Se7enTr3y" Akery in third place and Dmitrii ‘89rhino89’ Ivanov in second to win the first COOP title of his career and $26,089.10. The biggest win of the day belonged to Ylitalo though. The Swede beat out 1,913 other players to win the $320 buy-in Fast Friday Special Edition event for $86,064.90. Russia’s ‘shahter98’ finished runner-up for $62,456.48 while another Swede, Martine ‘martine565’ Youssef finished third for $45,324.70. The final event on Friday saw 1,118 players in the Six Max Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo event with Finland’s Jani ‘kiiski’ Vilmunen coming out on top. Vilmunen had previously won two World Championship of Online Poker events but this was his first TCOOP title. He earned $9,882.37 for the win. Russia’s ‘Dimon 2242’ was second for $7,171.18.
