WCOOP: Romania’s ‘jah1923’ Takes Down Sunday Million SE for $193K

1
The first Sunday Million of WCOOP 2018 wrapped up on Monday without a chop.

While Sunday was the start of the 2018 World Championship of Online Poker, Monday was the first day with multiple titles awarded and millions of dollars in prize pools being awarded. The biggest winner from the 15 events that played to a winner was Romania’s ‘jah1923‘ who scored an outright win in Event #4 Medium ($215 No Limit Hold’em Sunday Million Special Edition) for $193,055.14.

That event drew 6,794 runners to push the total prize pool to $1,358,800. ‘jah1923’ wasn’t the only player to take home a six-figure score. Runner-up ‘Lapideum‘ wound up winning $132,753.26 for outlasting all but one player.

BrightStripe‘ took home the winner’s share of $76,314.44 after chopping Event #2 High ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em) with ‘ale6ka‘ and ‘Machiavelli3‘. The final table also included Arseniy ‘josef_shvejk’ Karmatskiy and Alex ‘lynskey99’ Lynskey.

Julian ‘nailuj90’ Stuer picked up the win in Event #3 High ($2,100 Eight Max No Limit Hold’em PKO) for $96,971.08. Stuer also earned $87,312.49 in bounties. His final bounty came from runner-up ‘Armani1974‘. The German pro had to settle for $72,075.64 from the prize pool and an additional $32,812.51 in bounties.

The most high-profile heads-up battle of the day came between Germany’s ‘nilsef‘ and former #1-ranked Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen. The two managed to outlast the 197 other players in Event #10 High ($2,100 Eight Max No Limit Hold’em Win the Button) before agreeing to a chop. The heads-up battle saw ‘nilsef’ beat Hunichen to take home $74,459.48 while Hunichen had to settle for $66,459.48. This is the second WCOOP title for ‘nilsef’. The first came in 2010 in Event #10 ($250 Pot-Limit Omaha Knockout).

After the tournament wrapped up, Hunichen tweeted about his lack of success in heads-up battles.
