Super Poker sunday
Share this

It's a given that the start of the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) Main Event at PokerStars is the one tournament that all online poker pros are waiting for each year. This year the winner will walk away with $1,820,700 on Monday night — 2,142 players built a massive prize pool of $10,710,000.

When Sunday night's play finished there were 271 still left in action and with the top 270 places being paid, one player was leaving empty-handed. Isreal's "Viking8844" started Day 2 with the chip lead holding 613,924 in chips. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, recent WPT champ Darren "darrenelias" Elias, Jake Cody, Isaac "westmenloAA" Baron, Andre "aakkari" Akkari and Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo were still in action with a shot at the title.

Paul "paulgees81" Volpe won Event #63: $2,100 HORSE to claim his first WCOOP title, while Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion, Huck “octane190” Seed, and Taylor "tRaMp$d0PrAy" Paur made it to the final table of that event.

"kiiski" was in action and carried it all the way to the win after chopping heads-up with Noah "Exclusive" Boeken in Event #65: 8-Game Re-Entry High Roller for $231,200.
