While the three 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Main Events all played down to a final table on Tuesday, the fans of the great game of Pot Limit Omaha were tuned into to watch the PLO Main Events crown a new champion and all three of the buy-in levels came through with a top player standing in the winner’s circle.

Sweden’s ‘jedimaster82‘ beat Ola ‘Odd_Oddsen’ Amundsgaard heads up to win Event #73 High ($10,300 PLO Main Event) for $283,368.15 and their first WCOOP victory. Amundsgaard collected $217,808.59 for his runner-up performance.

Kahle ‘ROFLshove’ Burns outlasted 787 other entries in event #73 Medium ($1,050 PLO Main Event) to pocket $133,757 along with the first WCOOP title of his storied career.

The final PLO Main Event went to the current #1-ranked online poker player in Germany. ‘nilsef‘ and ‘GHOSTFACE9.8‘ chopped Event #73 Low ($109 PLO Main Event) with ‘nilsef’ taking home $40,224.38 and the title. This is the fifth time ‘nilsef’ has captured WCOOP glory, making him the fifth player to do so.

‘Roche9797’, who captured Event #68 Medium just two days earlier, came out on top of Event #75 High ($1,050 NLHE Series Saver) to become the 18th player to win two WCOOP titles this year. The win came with $97.526.11 from the prize pool and another $74,277.26 in bounties.

The first event on the 2020 WCOOP schedule finally wrapped up on Tuesday. ‘estebangocu’ topped Phase 2 of Event #1 ($215 NLHE) to win $215,006.07 and their first WCOOP title.

The other four players who were crowned WCOOP champs on Tuesday were ‘JannikB541’ (Event #1 Medium), ‘timaozanho’ (Event #1 Low), ‘r-w patriot’ (Event #75 Medium), and ‘Jungurcew’ (Event #75 Low).
