Day 2 of the biggest poker tournament in the world brought a flurry of excitement and action to the online poker festivities at PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. Winners of the two-day events that started on Sunday were crowned along with the champions from day two for a total of five new bracelet winners.
Here's how Day 2 played out:
PokerStars WCOOP 1 - $200 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max Two-Day ($1M Guaranteed)
The NLH Six-Max was the second event to crown a champion. Team PokerStars member Liv Boeree was up and down in the action and eventually ended up out in 18th place for $9,000.
Miguel "LOL_U_91" Use and Fisherman903 battled it out for first place and somewhere in the smoke and fire made a deal for the cash. Use took 1st place and the official prize of $211,000. The final six:
|*1||Miguel "LOL_U_91" Use||$211,000|
PokerStars WCOOP 3 - $200 No-Limit Hold’em Two-Day ($1.25M Guaranteed)
Resuming on Monday with 69 players remaining from the original starting field of 10,107, the following are the final nine payouts:
|8||Brendan "pocketsmcgee" Reid||$22,235.40|
PokerStars WCOOP 4 - $300 Pot-Limit Omaha ($300K Guaranteed)
Event 4 was the first non-Holdem event of the series - $300 Pot Limit Omaha. The top nine finishers and pay-outs:
|2||Galen "Gakn29" Cranston||$61,092|
PokerStars WCOOP 5 - $300 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout Six-Max ($175K Guaranteed)
Team PokerStars Shane "shaniac" Schleger managed to go deep in this event. He was ousted in ninth place after he lost a heads-up battle to eventual winner "Mossop7." Each player started the final table with 5,000 in chips. Somehow, the final six all made a deal:
|*3||Sal “ugritaly” Fazzino||$32,000|
|*4||Marcin "Goral" Horecki||$28,000|
PokerStars WCOOP 6 - $200 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo with Re-buys ($500K Guaranteed)
This event more than doubled the $500,000 guarantee on Monday when 1,589 players fastened their seat belts as 3,130 rebuys and 754 add-ons pushed up the prize pool to seven figures. And then there was a server problem with two tables remaining. Half of the players were disconnected but the tournament was paused, the issue was fixed, and the final table of nine was formed.
The final results:
|1||Jonathan "MONSTER_DONG" Karamalikis||$179,569.13|
|4||Martin "filfedra" Staszko|
|5||Jonathan “Iftarii” Jaffe||$51,993.50|
|6||George "gp18089" Pittas||$41,047.50|
"It's all over! The DONG ships WCOOP #6, an awesome way to begin the series," was sent out on Jonathan "MONSTER_DONG" Karamalikis' Twitter. His previous best finish on PokerStars was a $2,000 SCOOP event in May where he finished in third-place for $101,860.
