Wednesday’s action in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker featured nine different players entering the winner’s circle including Canadian Parker Talbot and Australian Stevan Chew.

Talbot took down event #58 High ($530 NLHE PKO) after outlasting 841 other entries to win the first WCOOP title of his career. Talbot had recently been the subject of some good natured ribbing from PokerStars Team Pro Online Ben ‘Spraggy’ Spragg due to his lack of WCOOP success. Talbot got the last laugh on Wednesday.

Chew picked up Wednesday’s bdiggest score after shipping Event #56 High ($2,100 Super Tuesday). Chew took home $149,594.83 after working his way through the 386-entry field to grab the first WCOOP of his career.

The third and final player to pick up a WCOOP High victory on Wednesday did so by working their way through the smallest field on the slate. ‘flong78‘ beat 67 other entries in Event #57 High ($2,100 2-7 Triple Draw) to win $36,707.74.

And it wouldn’t be a day of 2020 WCOOP action without another player joining the double winner club. Rinat ‘Zapahzamazki’ Lyapin won Event #57 Medium ($215 2-7 Triple Draw) to pair with his win in Event #2 Medium ($1,050 NLHE Sunday Slam).

The other WCOOP champions from Wednesday were ‘TheVirus217‘ (Event #56 Medium), ‘renan141084‘ (Event #56 Low), ‘luda555‘ (Event #57 Low), ‘valdemaar74‘ (Event #58 Medium), and ‘NightGuiden‘ (Event #58 Low).
