WCOOP Day Six Roundup!
The PokerStars Team Pros have had a pretty successful week with regards to the WCOOP, with two of them already bagging titles, and we nearly had another one. Mickey “mement_mori” Petersen came very close to making it three for the team.
It was actually quite a successful day all around for the PokerStars Pros, where Vanessa Rousso got down to the last two tables in event 13 and Matthias De Meulder was also in the same event and actually went out on the bubble in seventh place.
Though they all tried their best, there are still just the two PokerStars Pros title holders so far this year with both George Danzer and Eugene Katchalov winning bracelets so far.
PokerStars WCOOP Event 13 – NLHE 6 Max $530 Knockout
This was the event where a couple of the Team PokerStars Pros came very close to adding to their tally, however, in the end it came down to a heads up match between “Ajoin21” and Georgios “gkap13” Kapalas to decide the title.
This event actually had 1,938 starters which contributed to a very handsome prize pool of $782,952 with a grand total of $195,738 of that put to one side for knockout bonuses.
As it turned out it was “Ajoin21” who won the day and the $114,313 first place prize, after a deal with “gkap13”.
1. Ajoin21 – $114,313*
2. Georgios “gkap13” Kapalas – $101,000*
3. Zerochill – $68,508
4. KilleR397 – $45,019
5. Remislovas – $30,691
6. 12pilsnerplz – $17,538
Event 15 – Pot Limit Hold’Em 6-Max $215
In this event the PokerStars Team Pro member Mickey “mement_mori” Petersen finished in fourth after all most snatching the third title for PokerStars.
That on its own is a very good achievement considering the event actually had 2,021 original starters, which led to a decent prize pool of $404,200. Petersen managed to navigate that field to find himself at the final table, though as the short stack.
He battled bravely and did excellently to take himself into fourth position where he eventually was eliminated. By doing so he won $23,241 which by all accounts really is not a bad day’s work on the grand scale of things.
With him out of the way it left a final three who quickly came to an arrangement over a deal. In the end though it was the Mexican professional poker player “cnew27” who went on to win the $51,391 first place payout.
1. cnew27 – $51,391*
2. Kunkku – $44,725*
3. Baexy – $50,405*
4. Mickey “mement_mori” Petersen – $23,241
5. Culibrk1 – $15,157
6. joaoMathias – $8,528
