WCOOP Event #13

Share this
Some big names hit the final table for Event #13 in PokerStars' World Championship of Online Poker, as Team PokerStars players, ElkY and Bill Chen , navigated the waters with over 1,000 competitors who plunked down $530 for the Pot Limit Hold ‘Em event. While Lee Nelson was hanging onto a short stack in Event #12, the $215 HORSE tourney, Chen and ElkY were duking it out in Hold ‘Em.

This is what the final table looked like at the start of play -

Seat 1: ElkY (228419 in chips)
Seat 2: SpotLIGHT19 (384068 in chips)
Seat 3: kedvedert (167596 in chips)
Seat 4: betgo (210463 in chips)
Seat 5: sh00ter (225198 in chips)
Seat 6: Bill Chen (529666 in chips)
Seat 7: Tycoon_Kid (639911 in chips)
Seat 8: antroff (159804 in chips)
Seat 9: shahmat (724875 in chips)

ElkY was the first to head to the rail when his A-J was no good against shahmat's A-K, and the online superstar finished 9th for $6,257.50. SpotLIGHT 19 had been snake bit ever since the final table began, and after getting his Kings cracked by Queens, he was crippled shortly after ElkY busted when sh00ter cracked his pocket Tens with pocket Nines. Bill Chen finished him off on the next hand, ending SpotLIGHT 19's run of terrible luck. He picked up $10,900 for his 8th-place finish.

Sh00ter didn't hold onto SpotLIGHT 19's chips for very long, busting next with A-K against kedvedert's 9-9. No help on the board for sh00ter, and he lost the coin flip to head to the rail in 7th place ($15,805).

Another battle of pocket pairs sent kedvedert to the rail in 6th when he got all his chips in the middle with 7-7 and was called by betgo with 8-8. No two-outer for Kedvedert, and he found an extra $21,255 in his stocking.

Bill Chen got it all in the middle with A-J, and again it was betgo in a dominating position, holding A-Q. Betgo caught a Queen on the flop, and the mathematician and WCOP bracelet winner fell in 5th for $28,067.50.

Four-handed play continued for a little while until Tycoon_Kid managed to double through betgo, lighting a fire under betgo and propelling him into a run that ended with betgo as a massive chip leader. Tycoon_Kid shot down discussions of a deal, and players went to the wire to play it out.

Shahmat almost doubled through betgo, but the King on the river that gave him two pair also gave betgo a flush, so shahmat went out in 4th place ($34,880). Tycoon_Kid lost a coin flip when his A-K couldn't catch up to antroff's 10-10. He lost a little cash because of his desire to gamble, but he still picked up $43,600 for his 3rd-place finish.

The heads-up battle between antroff and betgo was the longest of any WCOOP event so far, and with $50K on the table separating 1st and 2nd place, it was well worth the play. At a couple of different points, deals were offered and refused, so they finally decided to play it out. After the final deal discussion fell through, antroff took over and built a 5-1 chip lead over betgo, finally putting his opponent away when he made top pair on the flop and left betgo drawing thin to catch up. No help for betgo and antroff was crowned the winner of Event #13 at the WCOOP.

Here are the final table finishes and payouts -

1. antroff (Sweden) $117,175.00
2. betgo (United States) $64,473.50
3. Tycoon_Kid (New Zealand) $43,600.00
