We are now just a couple of days away from 2014 and though we will all be looking forward to the turn of the year, there were also plenty of great memories regarding poker to remember from 2013. The live tournament scene was buzzing and the online poker scene was again frantically busy. One of the reasons for the latter are the new tournaments, formats and promotions that the biggest poker sites in the world, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, regularly offer their players.
One of those was the December Festival at poker which was culminated in a new series called the WCOOP Challenge Series. This series brought eight big online poker events with huge prize pool guarantees that also included a free seat into the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) Main Event for the winners of each one.
The PokerStars.net Facebook page has just released a highlights package of the 4th event for us all to look at. Do not worry; the action has all been cut down to just 30 minutes, so you will not have to sit through the many hours that it actually took to complete.
The event was the WCOOP Challenge 04 – $1,040 No-Limit Hold’em 8-Max which was offering the winner a solid $205,495.
The video shows all of the highlights of that event with the very last hand proving to be one of the biggest. During the highlights they reveal each of the player’s hole cards much like televised poker is done these days. Take a look below at all of the action from the 4th event in the WCOOP Challenge Series.
