The party in Portugal is probably going to last for a few days after Andre ‘PTFisherman23’ Marques came out on top of the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Main Event (High) on Wednesday.

Marques, who was playing from the Netherlands, was one of three players to earn at least $1 million at the final table after Marques, Tonio ‘prrak4783’ Roder, and Teun ‘tinnoemulder’ Mulder chopped up just north of $3.32 million after four days of play in $10,300 buy-in WCOOP Main Event. Marques emerged as the champion and picked up $1,147,270.86 while Roder came in second place for $1,082,522.50 and Mulder took home $1,101,527.64 for taking the final spot on the podium.

Sweden’s Robin ‘robinho’ Ylitalo, who has been ranked as high as #2 in the world, came in fourth place for a career-best cash of $543,301. That cash also made Ylitalo just the 13th player to surpass $13 million in online tournament earnings.

Winning the WCOOP Main Event (Medium) is a pretty solid way to grab the first WCOOP title of your career. That’s exactly what Thailand-based grinder ‘1mSoWeeeaK‘ pulled off on Wednesday night after beating ‘Y.Zakaharov’ heads up to claim the crown and secure the bag. With no deal made, the champion walked away with $504,583.85 while ‘Y.Zakaharov’ had to settle for $359,679.96.

Lastly, ‘klimono‘ turned their $55 buy-in into $186,841.09 by outlasting 38,659 other entries in the Main Event (Low). It was the first WCOOP title for the Polish poker player.
