The Turbo Series is back with a bang at PokerStars with 134 action-packed events and more than $25 million combined guarantees from Feb. 21 to March 8.
The highlight of the festival is easily the Turbo Series 127: $1,050 Main Event High boasting a massive $2 million guarantee on March 7. Perhaps even more value and taking place on the same day is the Turbo Series 128: $55 Main Event Low with a generous $1 million guarantee.
That being said, there are many huge events on the schedule every day including the nine that already ran on Sunday, Feb. 21.

Already Some Big Results!
Michel “FreeLancerZZ” Dattani has already notched the biggest win thus far in the festival after he shipped the $750K guaranteed Turbo Series 03: $5,200 NLHE High Roller for $152,744 after agreeing to a heads-up deal with “CrazyLissy” (second – $144,863). Poker coach, streamer, and high-stakes tournament grinder Jonathan “apestyles” Van Fleet was also on the podium in this event to collect the bronze prize of $100,421.
Meanwhile, German online superstar Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph also won big after he bested a field of 2,712 entrants in the $500K guaranteed Turbo Series 04: $215 NLHE to bank the $79,244 top prize.
How to Qualify for the Turbo Series
The Turbo Series boasts many events with buy-ins as low as $11 that you may want to choose to buy in directly. However, you might want to consider trying to qualify for many other more expensive events, including the Turbo Series $1,050 Main Event High.
PokerStars is well-known for running tons of satellites tournaments for all of its big events where you can qualify in for just pennies on the dollar and the Turbo Series is no different in that regard. Just find the events in the PokerStars lobby that intrigue you and open up the lobbies to see what satellites are currently running.
While this is the most traditional path, there are two others you should strongly consider including The Fast Track and special-edition $4 and $22 Spin & Go’s awarding Turbo Series tickets including to the Main Event High.
The Fast Track can potentially get you into the $1,050 Main Event High for just $1 and here is how you can do just that!
- Win a $1 NLHE Hyper Turbo Fast Track Round 1 to play in the $11 NLHE Hyper Turbo Fast Track Round 2
- Win the $11 NLHE Hyper Turbo Fast Track Round 2 to play in the $109 NLHE Turbo Fast Track Final.
- Win the Fast Track Final, which boasts an added 10 Main Event High seats, to punch your ticket to one of the biggest events of the year.
Of course, you can skip steps along the way if you don’t feel like starting from Step 1 and have a budget to do so. The decision is all yours!
