There were just three final tables on Friday's World Championship of Online Poker schedule.

Friday was a relatively quiet day on the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker schedule. Just three new champions were crowned on Friday with all of them coming from Event #16.

Russia’s ‘LeslieGroves‘ beat out 94 other players in Event #16 ($10,300 NLHE PKO High Roller) to win their first WCOOP title and over $263,000. The win came with $111,206.12 from the prize pool, but the unknown player also walked away with $152,421.87 in bounties. The last bounty collected came from runner-up Rodrigo ‘seijistar’ Seiji. The Brazilian grinder won $11,205.97 from the prize pool and an additional $50,290.63 in bounties. Former Global Poker Index #1-ranked Adrian Mateos rounded out the podium finishers, earning $74,927.63 and just $3,750.00 in bounties.

The two other winners on Friday were ‘IHackedRNG‘ (Event #16 Medium) and ‘herves01’ (Event #16 Low).
