Day 10 finished up yesterday at the PokerStars World Championship Of Online Poker with a small selection of Team PokerStars Pros performing very well. The most notable performance being that of Chad Brown, that finished third to win $10,000 in a Badugi event.
Day 10 was one of the slower days of the WCOOP so far with only a couple of events finishing up whilst there was another that completed Day 1. Nevertheless there were still some interesting stories as Vanessa Rousso, Griffin Benger and Shane Schleger all putting in some deep runs.
$320 Mixed Hold’em Event 27
One event that did finish up yesterday was the $320 Mixed NLHE/LHE which had two PokerStars Pros running deep, with Vanessa Rousso and Shane Schleger. However it was not to be for both of them as Canadian online poker specialist “putuonfbt” took down the win and the bracelet.
The original field was a fairly large one at 732 which managed to beat the $150k prize pool guarantee and knocking it up to $219,600.
Big name players such as Jose Barbero, Chad Brown and Maxim Lykov were some of the more notables to miss out on a cash in this event, though for Chad Brown he was already running well in another event at the same time as you will soon see.
Rousso who uses the screen name “LadyMaverick” on PokerStars enjoyed a good run in this event but eventually busted out in 35th when she got caught up with her K-10 vs. another players K-J. George Danzer who has had a pretty fantastic WCOOP so far also ran well until he was eliminated in 21st place.
Shane Schleger bettered both of them as he fell in 19th place after running into pocket aces with his pocket tens and cashed for $1,098.
“putuonfbt” eventually won the event and took home $40,296. Here are the final standings:
1. putuonfbt – $40,296
2. Strummer9 – $28,767
3. Lennart – $21,740
4. Mustangoo7 – $16,360
5. Dyng247 – $11,419
6. DO$UN*9* – $9,223
7. RuiNF – $7,027
8. ESTRATEGA 18 – $4,831
9. Edoiler – $2,854
$320 Badugi Event 28
Chad Brown became the most successful PokerStars Team Pro of the day in the $320 Badugi Event 28, though the win still eluded him by two places.
This event had 304 players registering to create a prize pool of $91,200 of which there were a whole host of PokerStars Team Pros in attendance. Daniel Negreanu, Marcel Horecki, Alex Kravchenko, George Danzer and of course Chad Brown were all vying to take down the event.
However, despite all of their best efforts and especially Brown’s it was the Canadian “woodbine ave” that took home the $17,784 first place prize.
The Final Standings:
1. woodbine ave – $17,784
2. Gigaloff – $13,224
3. Chad Brown – $10,032
4. Dynastyzz – $7,296
5. Mehmet deniz – $5,016
6. Lumelia – $3,648
7. NAR74 – $2,736
8. QuadVQuadMe – $2,280
