WCOOP Event #19 – Pot Limit Omaha

Share this

The $530 Pot Limit Omaha Event #19 in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker drew over 1,000 entrants building a $523,000 prize pool. The top 153 of them got a piece of the money, but only one got the biggest slice and the gold WCOOP bracelet. After hours of play, these nine players made the final table -

Seat 1: buck21 (675653 in chips)
Seat 2: cpfactor (346548 in chips)
Seat 3: Gu Minda (254942 in chips)
Seat 4: tralaira (321000 in chips)
Seat 5: Taknapotin (610847 in chips)
Seat 6: muzzu (278486 in chips)
Seat 7: Egar1m (130656 in chips)
Seat 8: villepn (398332 in chips)
Seat 9: Niiiv (121536 in chips)

Muzzu doubled up on the first hand of the final table, catching runner-runner to make a full house after villepn flopped a set and called his all-in move. The double ups continued as Gu Minda doubled trough Taknapotin a few hands later, then Taknapotin raised preflop then called a reraise from buck21 with {9-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. The flop of {7-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Spades} ensured that all the chips were going into the middle. Taknatopin was ahead of Buck21's {A-Spades}{3-Spades}{7-Spades}{A-Diamonds} with two pair on the flop, but the 8 on the turn gave buck21 a bigger two pair. No help on the river and Taknapotin was out in 9th place ($6,014). Niiiv didn't last much longer, as all his chips went in with {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}, called by villepn's {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}{A-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Villepn caught an 8 on the flop and Niiiv went to the rail in 8th place for $10,460.

Gu Minda and villepn worked their pocket aces into big pots, and then the rockets failed Egar1m. Buck21 out flopped Egar1m with {8-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{Q-Spades}, picking up two pair on the flop and sending Egar1m to the rail in 7th for $15,167. After a strong final table performance, a couple of big hands left villepn short-stacked and then all in against two players, ultimately eliminated when Gu Minda made trip threes. Villepn picked up $20,397 for his 6th-place finish.

Cpfactor was next to bust when he ran his two pair into Gu Minda's bigger two pair on a board of {K-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. Gu Minda rivered a full house with {J-Spades}{K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades} and cpfactor was busted in 5th for $26,934. Gu Minda put another notch on his gun belt a few hands later when he made quad nines to send tralaira home in 4th place ($33,472).

Buck21 started a run when play got three-handed, and built a massive chip lead, only increasing it when his aces held up against muzzu's sevens to send muzzu home in third $41,840. With a 2:1 chip lead, buck21 eventually agreed to a chop, leaving $16,000 on the table for first place, and guaranteeing the following payouts -

buck21 - $81,262
Gu Minda - $77,053

After a little more play, buck21 managed to increase his chip lead to 4:1 and get all the money in after Gu Minda picked up two pair on the turn with the same card that gave buck21 a Broadway straight. No help on the river for Gu Minda, and buck21 picked up the extra $16K and the bracelet in Event #19. Here are the payouts for the final table.

1. buck21 (Canada) $97,262
2. Gu Minda (France) $77,053.00
