0

Anybody who closely follows the PocketFives Rankings knows that every time the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker rolls around, the Rankings see some seismic shifts. With Day 2 of WCOOP now in the books, it looks like there is already going to be some movement near the top.

Russia’s ‘veeea‘, the #4-ranked player in the world, might find himself moving up after taking down Event #4 ($1,050 Progressive KO) for a $97,389.47 score plus over $100,000 in bounties. The final table included
the second 2017 WCOOP final table for Adrian ‘Amadi_017’ Mateos, the #1-ranked player from Boznia and Herzegovina, Alen ‘lilachaa’ Bilic and the #1 player from Cyprus, Andreas ‘daskalos20’ Christoforou. This is the second career WCOOP title for ‘veeea‘. He won a $320 buy-in WCOOP Stud title in 2013.

That was one of three WCOOP (High) events that wrapped up on Tuesday.

Pascal ‘Päffchen’ Hartmann beat out 1,164 other players to win Event #5 ($215 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha) for $37,015.66 and his first COOP title. Germany’s ‘Schinken777‘ finished runner-up.

The #2-ranked Croatian, ‘josip1313‘, topped the 1,180-player field in Event #7 ($530 Eight Max NLHE) to win $93,988.27. The final table included PocketFivers ‘Powergolf‘, the #2-ranked Finnish player, Tomi ‘elmerixx’ Brouk and Russia’s ‘s3c3_1978’.
