After three weeks that seemed to fly by, the PokerStars World Championship Of Online Poker has now been concluded with the final two events being completed today. Both of these events were two day affairs, with the Main Event obviously being the one that attracted most of the attention.
There were many big name players taking part and one in Shane “shaniac” Schegler actually made it to a 6th place finish. Check out how it finished up along with the other event below.

The penultimate event to be finished in the 2013 WCOOP was this $215 NLHE event that carried a $15 million prize pool guarantee and has been played across two days. A stunning attendance of 9,678 players ensured that the guarantee was broken as the calculations revealed a true prize pool of $1,935,600.
After a long two day challenge it was “Mrp1neApple” that took down the first place payout of $208,682.58

PokerStars Team Pros Liv Boeree, Jason Mercier, Jake Cody and Vicky Coren all managed to get deep enough to cash but none could match their fellow team pro Shane “shaniac” Schegler after he managed to make the final table and finish in 6th place for a payout of $291,154.50.
That’s a wrap. Lost the ultimate crucial flip 55 to AK for heaps, still feeling pretty f’ing good about this run.

Okay, all done, I’m out (AJ v 44 no good). Finished 209th of 2133, for $13,331. Got to be happy with that though, right? And soon I will be!

Once the final table got down to three handed, the players remaining discussed a deal that ensured each of them will be banking at least $1 million each and playing for an additional $160,000. The first to go was “SwissCantMis” for a payout of $1,101,835, which left us with an intense heads up session between the two finalists who were neck and neck for the majority of it.
However, “PlayinWasted” eventually manage to chip down his opponent and finished off by winning the final hand with his As-Ks making a flush on the river to secure a payout of $1,493,499, a WCOOP bracelet, a diamond and gold watch and of course the much coveted WCOOP Main Event title.
