WCOOP: Chris Oliver Beats ‘bencb789’ to Capture High Roller Title

1
Monday's WCOOP action was highlighted by the wrap up of the Sunday Million Special Edition.

Twelve more World Championship of Online Poker events came to their conclusion on Monday topped with the crowning of a new Sunday Million champion.

Lithuania’s ‘euras79‘ achieved every poker player’s dream after he turned $109 into $186,467 in Event #31 Medium ($109 NLHE [Half Price Sunday Million]} after battling through the large 16,950 player field. ‘euras79’ previous best cash was for $13,114 after a second-place finish in the PokerStars Big $55 last year which makes his title run even more spectacular. ‘ccccpusa‘ took the bronze medal for $94,744, before the $50,000 heads-up battle got underway. No deal was agreed to so the two players had a lot at stake, and it was ‘MrMo19‘ who ultimately exited in second place for a $132,912 before ‘euras79’ claimed their biggest career title to date.

OMGitshunt‘ won over $121,000 after they came through a 778 player field in Event #29 (High): $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO]. The final three consisted of two U.K. based players, but neither of them was able to go the distance. ‘Malaka$tyle‘ took third place for a total score worth over $55,000 before Jonathan ‘Gil3000’ Gill fell at the final hurdle but still banked over $57,000 for his silver medal.

Former PocketFives.com #1-ranked Chris ‘ImDaNuts’ Oliver took down Event #30 (High): $5,200 NLHE [High Roller] for a huge $250,934 score after a heads-up battle with ‘bencb789‘. The final table included PokerStars TeamPro Liv Boeree as well as current PocketFives.com world ranked no.#1 ‘Lena900,’ but they fell in 7th and 6th place respectively. ‘RommyTheCute‘ took away $144,315 in third place before the final battle got underway. There was $60,000 at stake, and it was Oliver who got the better of well-known online grinder ‘Bencb789’ who added $190,299 to his bankroll in second-place.

Former PokerStars Sunday Million champion João ‘XxJoaoFeraxX’ Otávio struck a heads-up deal with Yoshiaki ‘Play4livin’ Paco before going on to claim the Event #30 (Medium): $530 NLHE [Sunday Warm-Up SE] title. Paco secured by far his biggest online score to date after he agreed to take $112,593 for his share of the deal after Mark ‘Willy3009’ Wilson had departed in third place for $70,885. Brazil’s Octavio then claimed victory in the final battle and banked $126,350 as well as their first WCOOP title.

The biggest winner of the day was Brazil’s Fabiano ‘kovalski1’ Kovalski after he banked a massive $282,545 after a heads-up deal with his compatriot Eder Campana in Event #31 (High): $1,050 NLHE. The 2,077 entrant field created a $2,077,000 prize pool with over $530,000 up for grabs in the top two spots. The U.K.’s Jamie ‘Ship It 2010’ O’Connor secured his best online score worth $109,862 in fourth place before ‘messigoat10‘ secured $155,368 and the bronze medal. This left the two Brazilians to arrange a money deal. Kovalski then went on to secure his second WCOOP title, eight years after his first, as he sent Campana to the rail in second place for $247,918.
