This year’s WCOOP comes to an end today where it will host its last event, the $5 Million guaranteed $5,200 NLHE. Until then we will give you a recap on exactly what happened on Day 20.

$520 NLHE Event 57

This event was won by the Russian player “Ti0373”as he successfully negotiated a field of 800 players to scoop $155,817.40. He didn’t have it easy by any means as he had a tough final table that included Nick “FU_15” Maimone and Alex “joiso” Kostritsen.

This event managed to attract 846 which after all of the add ons and rebuys were calculated brought us a prize pool of $1 million. Some big name players managed deep runs in this event such as Shane Schleger, Ana Marquez and Bertrand Grospellier.

As the final table got underway it was 2008 Aussie Millions winner Krostritsyn who had the chip lead with 4.9 million chips. He had a massive lead and was clearly the favourite to win the event, yet he lost a few pivotal hands finished in 5th place.

Maimone on the other hand finished in third place when he pushed all-in with A-10 but ran into an A-k. Though he missed out on the heads up session and a chance at winning the event he will be happy enough with taking home $132k for his efforts.
