WCOOP: Canada’s ‘SinKarma’ Takes Four Max Title, Wins $124K

0
Denis 'aDrENalin710' Strebkov continues to dominate WCOOP 2018 by winning his fourth event at the halfway point.

There was plenty of action during the fifth full day of the PokerStars 2018 World Championship of Online Poker. Fourteen total tournaments were in action on Friday and six new WCOOP Champions were crowned.

The biggest winner of the day was Canadian grinder ‘SinKarma’. They topped the 334-player field in Event #21 High ($2,100 Four Max, No Limit Hold’em) for $124,143.98, the only six-figure cash of the day. Poland’s ‘voytech75’ settled for second place, walking with a score of over $82,000. The rest of the four-handed final table was rounded out by South Korea’s ‘level1pro’ who won $55,438.92 and Austrian pro ‘Tankanza’ who added $37,047.61 to his winnings.

It was mere months ago that ’Tankanza’ picked up a massive win in PokerStars $10,300 NLHE Spring Championship Of Online Poker Main Event for a seven-figure score of $1,133,160.

Other notable names that went deep in this contest included Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen (10th place – $15,840.95), PokerStars Ambassador Jason ‘jcarverpoker’ Sommerville (11th – $15,840.95), Shaun ‘shaundeeb’ Deeb (14th – $11,934), ‘bencb’ (17th – $8,990.67), Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet (21 – $8,990.67) and Germany’s ‘nilsef’, who has already earned himself two WCOOP titles in 2018.

‘phounderAA’ defeated the 1,896 player field in Event #21 Medium ($215 Four Max, No Limit Hold’em), taking home the $56,901.32 first place prize. While ‘*M@RC0* A’ navigated through the 8,177 players who registered for Event #6 Low ($22 Four Max, No Limit Hold’em) en route to a three-way chop that gave him $18,165.57 and the title of WCOOP Champion.

The other event that wrapped up on Friday was Event #24 (Three Max, Turbo, Progressive KO, Zoom, No Limit Hold’em). The UK’s ‘la_benjjjjj’ was, far and away, the overwhelming winner in the $530 High Event. He defeated the three-handed final table and took home $47,479.59 for first. On top of that, he earned another $35,05086 in bounties. His bounty haul alone was more than ‘venomrtgllwi’ earned for second place, winning $31,035.57 as the runner-up and an additional $3,080.08 in bounties.

Event #24 Medium ($55 Three Max, Turbo, Progressive KO, Zoom, No Limit Hold’em) was won by Romans ’RovoDice’ Voitovs from Latvia. Voitovs earned $24,844.67 for the win and another $10,158.23 in bounties. He’s currently the #5-ranked player in Latvia and with the victory, he sits just outside of $1.5 million in lifetime recorded earnings.

There were two events, Event #22 (Eight Max, Pot Limit Omaha 8) and Event #23 (No Limit Hold’em) that will resume on Saturday.
