CrownUpGuy Wins WCOOP Main Event for $1,300,000

The World Championship of Online Poker, also known as WCOOP, has been under way the past month on the world’s biggest poker site Pokerstars. This morning the tournament series came to an end, as the $5,200 buy-in main event came to an end after two long playing days for the players.


A total of 2,142 players paid the large buy-in to compete for a $10,710,000 prize pool, with $1,820,700 for the first place finisher. The first day of play ended with a total of 273 players left, starting day 2 directly on the bubble, where the players could either finish without any cash at all or win the minimum prize of $12,316,50. The unlucky bubble boy was “All_in_at420” from Costa Rica, who missed out on prizes as the last player.


Several hours into day 2, the final table was found which was represented by players from all corners of the world. When six players was left on the final table, a deal was made which would give the top finishers less money for finishing in the top, while the bottom finishers of the six would receive more money for their play.


This meant that when CrownUpGuy from Austria won the tournament in front of theNERDguy from Brazil, he only got $1,300,000 instead of $1,820,700, while theNERDguy only got $708,251 instead of $1,253,070. We believe that all the players are still quite happy with their results and we would like to congratulate all players on making it into the money.
