0
Andrei 'Premove' Skortsov won his third career PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title on Saturday.

Saturday was a light day on the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker slate with the $5,200 buy-in Main Event set to take center stage on Sunday. Just six events played down to a winner with yet another player adding their name to the three-time winner club.

Russian Andrei ‘Premove’ Skvortsov took down Event #67 High ($1,050 NLO8) for a $35,886.02 score and his third career victory. This is his second WCOOP title in No Limit Omaha 8-or-better after he won the $5.50 buy-in event in 2018. That same year he won his first WCOOP title in a $109 buy-in 2-7 Single Draw tournament.

The only other High buy-in level event to wrap up on Saturday was actually the conclusion of a three-day event. Canadian ‘luelue399’ beat 493 other entries in event #63 ($2,100 Thursday Thrill) to earn $76,339.09 and another $94,960.93 from bounties.

‘dalton’ (Event #63 Medium), ‘nvp.frv’ (Event #63 Low), ‘trollringen’ (Event #67 Medium), and ‘texasllainen’ (Event #67 Low).
