As the 2018 World Championship of Online Poker heads into its final weekend of action, the action continued on Thursday with Linus ‘LLinusLLove’ Loeliger taking down one of the biggest buy-in tournaments for nearly $588,000. Other highlights of the day included Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson and Arseniy ‘josef_shvejk’ Karmatskiy each picking up titles.

Loeliger beat out the 103 other players in Event #43 High ($25,000 Eight Max No Limit Hold’em High Roller) including a final table that included two former #1-ranked players, Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen and Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard, as well as Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang, Rachid ‘SkaiWalkurrr’ Ben Cherif and eventual runner-up Henrik ‘hhecklen’ Hecklen. The outright victory earned Loeliger $587,747.32 while Hecklen had to settle for $451,251.38.

The Medium version of that event attracted 662 runners with Ognjen ‘psjebemvas’ Sekularac taking home $228,348.36 for the win. ‘AS Leshly‘ and ‘ReadngSouls‘ chopped the Low version for $131,349.41 and $112,902.97 respectively.

Vieira topped Event #42 High ($2,100 Triple Draw Duece to Seven) to win $49,595. The final table included Luke Schwartz, Daniel Cates, and Harley Thrower. Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson won the Medium buy-in event for $15,325.20 while ‘pokerqmaster‘ took down the Low for $4,915.91.

One of the hottest players on the planet, Arseniy ‘josef_shvejk’ Karmatskiy continued his solid run, beating out 149 other players to win Event #44 High ($2,100 Six Max No Limit Hold’em Shootout) for $66,000. His victory denied Watson a second WCOOP title of the day. The Canadian finished runner-up for $46,050 while NLZWERVERNL finished third for $34,500.
