[caption width="640"] Jonas 'llJaYJaYll' Lauck is the 2016 World Championship of Online Poker Main Event champ[/caption] It took three days to complete, but in the end Jonas ‘llJaYJaYll’ Lauck stood tall over the 2,090 other entries in the 2016 World Championship of Online Poker Main Event and walked away with $1,517,541.25 for his efforts. It took Lauck only an hour to eliminate his final opponent, ‘0409479’, in second. The UK-based player also walked away with a seven-figure score, $1,101,278.90, as runner-up. In celebrating his win, Lauck brought back memories of 2012 WCOOP Main Event champion Marat 'maratik' Sharafutdinov, who coined a new catch phrase while negotiating his share of the prize pool. "We are world champion Thanks a lot for all the support and nice messages. Appreciate it! I WON(T) MILLION #wcoop #bazaaam," Lauck tweeted. While the Main Event was certainly the highlight of the final day of WCOOP 2016, there were two other events that wrapped up on Tuesday as well. Shyam ‘G’s zee’ Srinivasan beat out 473 other players, including Australian online legend James ‘Andy McLEOD’ Obst who finished second, to win Event #80 and $102,747.49. This was Obst’s second runner-up finish of the 2016 WCOOP. Brazilain ‘teruliro’ took home the final title of the day, winning Event #81, $320 Pot Limit Six Max Five Card Omaha, to win $51,267.22 after making a heads-up deal with eventual runner-up ‘Cinguzis’.

  3. [caption width="640"] Dejan ‘Dejanaceking’ Divkovic won a WCOOP title on Friday to go with the SCOOP title he won earlier this year[/caption] The three World Championship of Online Poker finishing on Frirday all easily surpassed their guarantees, and in one case skyrocketed to create a nearly $2 million prize pool. In the second and final day of play in Event #40, a $320 No Limit Hold’em Eight-Max tournament, only 107 players remained of the initial 1,730 entrants. Team PokerStars Pros Jason Mercier and Kevin ‘KevinM987’ Martin made the cut, but would end up finishing in 12th and 82nd respectively. In the end, ‘Kozir’ of Belarus made a surprise comeback with a short stack to defeat Dutchman ‘Ifold2ndnuts’ and Brazil’s Pablo ‘pabritz’ Brito Silva to win the title. Due to a deal worked out when Kozir looked like a long shot, Silva took home $62,000, the lion share of the prize pool, with the Belarusian banking $61,380 With bounties included, Event #41, a $1,575 No Limit Hold’em Progressive Knockout tournament boasted a hefty $1,890,000 prize pool. A total of 1,260 entrants bought-in to the event, which also doubled as the Thursday Thrill Special Edition. The second day of play began with 122 players and included Twitch streamers and PokerStars pros Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier and Randy 'nanonoko' Lew. With the end of the tournament in site, the action came in fits and spurts, with two players busting out on the very first hand of the final table. When only three players remained, the action slowed to a crawl, however, with Denmark’s ‘jonaj10’, the Dominican Republic’s Francis ‘NoHayMiedo’ Cruz and Germany’s ‘bossamtisch’ duking it out over 2.5 hours for the top spot. Once 'NoHayMiedo' was eliminated, the final two cut a deal to chop up the prize money, which saw them play for the bounties, 2% of the prize pool and the title. Just 13 hands later, 'jonaj10' emerged victorious, taking home $140,071 for his finish along with $52,286 in bounties. Event #42 was a $320 buy-in Eight-Game tournament which drew 476 entrants who made 272 reentries. The result was a $224,400 prize pool which paid out 95 places and absolutely smashed its $75,000 guarantee. In heads-up play, 2016 SCOOP champion Dejan ‘dejanaceking’ Divkovic of Bosnia and Herzegovina faced off with Austria’s ‘kuhns89’ for a chance at securing his second COOP title of the year. With both nearly even in chips, the pair decided on a deal which would leave $4,500 on the table for the winner. A short time later, Divkovic would take out his opponent in the Razz round to secure the victory and the $34,439 first-place prize.

  4. Players from Germany and Argentina reigned supreme in Friday's PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker events, with each country taking home multiple first and second place prizes, with players from both countries doing their best to fill up the day’s final tables. After a two-day grind in Event #15, a $215 Pot Limit Omaha tournament with the option to rebuy and add-on once, ‘Tgonz’ of the Philippines brought home the win, giving his home country its first WCOOP title this year. At the final table, Tgonz battled with the likes of Canada’s Zack ‘Zackattak13’ Korik, who took eighth, and Russia’s Andrey ‘ThePateychuk’ Pateychuk, whom Tgonz bested heads-up to take home the $43,861 top prize. Over $1.6 million was on the line in Event #16, a $1,050 NL Hold‘em Progressive KO tournament that smashed its $1 million guarantee. While 2016 Poker Hall of Fame nominee Chris Moneymaker made a respectable run in the event, taking 48th place and $3,158 in total prizes, it was the South Americans who dominated. Argentina’s ‘88maca88’ dispatched his countryman, ‘delfina_47’, heads-up to lock up the $121,841 first-place prize, along with $41,871 in bounties. ‘kurtWSOP’ of Brazil banked over $80,000 for his third-place finish, while yet another Argentinian grinder, Cristian ‘rogre69’ Sampaoli, took eighth. A four-way deal was struck at the final table of Event #17, the $320 Stud Hi-Lo contest, leaving third-place finisher, EPT champion Sebastian ‘Pauli elTopo’ Pauli with $12,584, the lion share of the $89,100 prize pool. In the end, Germany’s ‘Dosenpfand’ outlasted the small 297-player field and took down Russian Spring Championship of Online Poker champion, ‘DTFobos’, to win the title and a $12,494 prize. In Event #20, a $320 NLHE, Three-Max, Turbo, Progressive KO, Zoom tournament, players buckled in for a wild ride of lightspeed poker. As the 1,594 player field was whittled down and the non-Zoom portion of the tournament began, several tough players remained. Recent Sunday Million and Sunday Warm-Up winner ‘Needdollarz’ was on hand looking to book another win, as was two-time Turbo Championship of Online Poker winner ‘AlexKP’. Another Sunday Million champ, ‘Doulas12’, was also in the running, dreaming about a possible PokerStars Grand Slam. When all was said and done, Germany’s ‘venced0r’ took home the title and over $50,000 in prizes, giving his country its second win of the day.

  5. The 2016 World Championship of Online Poker has most definitely hit the home stretch with just four days left of new events. Wednesday's action included three players winning WCOOP titles for the first time in their careers and a Championship final table that was loaded with star power. Hungary's Rui 'sousinha23' Sousa beat out 2,357 other players to win the $320 Win the Button event and $104,284.57.Ivan 'Negriin' Luca finished second for just under $75,000. Fabrizo 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, who already has a 2016 WCOOP title to his credit, finished fourth for $38,755.40. That finish moves Gonzalez into top spot on the PokerStars WCOOP Leaderboard. While Sousa walked away with six figures, his score paled in comparison to what fellow Hungarian Jorge 'jorginho88' Abreu won. Abreu topped the 904-player field to win Event #60, the $2,100 Super Tuesday Special Edition and walk away with $304,880.49. High stakes cash game regular ' caaaaamel' finished runner-up for $223,476.03. Joao Mathias 'joaoMathias' Baumgarten, who moved to #1 in the PocketFives Rankings on Wednesday, topped off his big day by finishing third for $163,807.15.

  6. [caption width="641"] Christian ‘CMoosepower’ Elgstrøm won his third COOP title on Saturday[/caption] The second weekend of the World Championship of Online Poker included two No Limit Hold‘em tournaments, the Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship and a Five-Card Omaha Hi-Lo event. In two of those tournaments, players received some extra value for their money when the events failed to hit their guarantees. Event #18, $320 No Limit Hold’em Heads-Up tournament, was a grueling two-day affair that drew 624 entrants and resulted in a small overlay to its $200,000 guarantee. Slovakia’s ‘prosvk’ battled his way through nine heads-up matches, ultimately besting his final opponent, Arturs ‘IKSecret’ Kurnajevs, to secure his first WCOOP title and a $31,670 payday. The journey wasn’t easy for Prosvk, who at one point lost a big pot when his set of kings fell to fourth-place finisher ‘CHD17’s’ rivered quads. Prosvk was able to keep his cool, however, and locked up the win after turning a pair of aces against his final opponent’s pair of kings. In Event #19, some of the world’s best poker players clashed to claim the title of WCOOP Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo champion. The $1,050 buy-in tournament garnered 168 entries, which included two-time Spring Championship of Online Poker champion Christian ‘CMoosepower’ Elgstrøm of Denmark, Canadian poker pro Mike ‘goleafsgoeh’ Leah and Twitch sensation Jason Somerville. After four and half hours of play on Day 2 of the event, the title came down to a match between Elgstrøm and Leah. For nearly an hour, the Danish grinder applied relentless pressure to his opponent until finally emerging victorious with a full house against Leah’s busted low hand. Elgstrøm celebrated his third COOP title and banked $34,028, while Lee took $26,371 and Sommerville made do with $5,714 for his eighth place finish. Event #21 was a $215 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament which garnered 1,713 entrants, but failed to meet its $400,000 guarantee. After taking home his first SCOOP title all the way back in 2009, Hungary’s ‘tomacampi’ was back, navigating a final table that included decorated pro ‘eisenhower1’ and Sunday Bigger champ Bradley ‘BaZa88’ Bower. In heads-up play, ‘tomacampi’ would need only 10 minutes to defeat Germany’s ‘Dakain’, and take home his second COOP title – seven years apart – and a $51,855 prize. WCOOP players got a chance to stray from the norm a bit in Event #22, a $215 Pot Limit Five-Card Omaha Hi-Lo tournament. The event attracted 377 entrants, 257 of which would reenter to generate a $126,800 prize pool, exceeding the $100,000 guarantee. ‘Onmybicycle’ of the Netherlands played exceptionally well on Day 2 of the tournament, moving up from nearly last-place in chips to win the title after defeating Bulgaria’s ‘KRASIVIQ’. The tournament gave the Dutch grinder his first COOP win and a $21,808 first-place prize.

[caption width="640"] Phil Galfond almost won a WCOOP title on Monday[/caption] The penultimate day of the 2016 World Championship of Online Poker had the $5,000 buy-in Main Event playing down to a final table while three other events wrapped up with three new champions crowned. Phil Galfond, who recently announced plans to launch an online poker site of his own to compete with PokerStars, got close to capturing a WCOOP title of his own, but ultimately had to finish for second place. 'mighty28' earned an outright victory in the $1 million guaranteed Event #77 and walked away with $264,885. Phil 'MrSweets28' Galfond was awarded $183,317 for his runner-up performance, and PocketFives member 'Hitvil' of Belarus took home his largest career online tournament cash of $126,870. Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard of the United Kingdom (ranked #208 worldwide) received a 4th place prize of $87,804. Fifth place was paid out to 'paleta25' in the amount of $60,767. There was a three-way final table chop in the $1,050 buy-in WCOOP Wrap-Up Event #82. 'NegroVente1' outlasted the field to become the official champion for $156,290. Canadian Michael Risman added $143,524 to his online poker bankroll after finishing in second place while 'Barrrii' negotiated a payout of $139,842 for third place. The fourth place prize of $76,267 in that event went to 'kisulik777' and 'Emilohlsson' earned $55,904 for fifth.

  8. [caption width="640"] Patrick ‘prepstyle71’ Serda won 2,930.71 for taking down the PLO Championship[/caption] Thursday’s World Championship of Online Poker action included a No Limit Hold‘em tournament, a Pot Limit Omaha Championship and a low buy-in HORSE event. Each tournament smashed its guarantee, underscoring PokerStars’ strength in the online poker world, as well as the popularity of the series. The first event to finish up yesterday was a $530 buy-in No Limit Hold‘em tournament with rebuys. On Day 1, players made a total of 345 rebuys and 289 add-ons, pumping up the prize pool to $502,500, easily surpassing the event’s $300,000 guarantee. Only 24 players remained at the end of the first day, including poker pros Felix ‘ZhipOHoy’ Stephensen and Ole ‘wizowizo’ Schemion. In the end it was Netherlands’ ‘marcasa’ who came out on top to win the $91,540 first-place prize and add his first WCOOP title to his resume. A modest field of 406 grinders turned up for the $2,100 Pot Limit Omaha Championship Six Max event. The extremely tough field made a total of 169 reentries, bumping up the prize pool to $1,150,000, more than double its $500,000 guarantee. Highlighting the level of competition in the tournament, EPT5 Copenhagen champion and 2016 WSOP PLO Highroller bracelet winner Jens 'Jeans89' Kyllonen busted out in ninth place, leaving two-time WSOP bracelet winner Mike 'gordo16' Gorodinsky and five others to battle for the healthy $202,930 first-place prize. After a grueling hour-long heads-up match, Patrick ‘prepstyle71’ Serda finally pulled away from his Dutch opponent, ‘Bullitos’, winning the championship and the six-figure top prize. Event #64 was a $320 HORSE tournament that drew 356 runners and exceeded it $75,000 guarantee by more than $30,000 for total prize pool of $106,800. Five-time COOP champ ‘aDrENalin710’ of Russia once again proved his skills in mixed game tournaments by defeating the UK’s ‘LUFCBas’ for the title and $17,848. The victory gives the Russian six total COOP wins and adds to his first-place finish in the $1,050 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship, for which he took home $63,780 earlier this month.

  9. New Article[caption width="640"] Samuel '€urop€an' Vosden won his first WCOOP title on Wednesday. (PokerStars photo / Neil Stoddart)[/caption] You know you've got the respect of other players at the final table when chop discussions start and you end up with an opportunity to walk away with more than first place was supposed to pay. That's exactly what happened to Finland's Samuel '€urop€an' Vosden late Wednesday night as he went on to win his first World Championship of Online Poker title in the Special Edition Super Tuesday, earning $297,250 in the process. First place was scheduled to pay $292,182.25 While Vousden had earned an extra $5,000, third place finisher 'reno8' earned $176,000 and runner-up 'Xingsmaster' walked away $189,885.05. 'Vousden now has a WCOOP title to go along with the Spring Championship of Online Poker title he won in 2015. Another Finnish player almost walked away with WCOOP title of his own on Wednesday but a Russian phenom wanted no part of that storyline. 'aDrENalin710' beat Finland's Jani 'kiiski' Vilmunen heads-up to win the Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship event for $63,780.33. This is the fifth COOP title for 'aDrENalin710' and his first since winning a WCOOP title last September.

  10. [caption width="640"] Cameron 'ishter11' Couch highlighted the 2016 WCOOP Day 4 winners[/caption] It took him four days, but Cameron 'ishter11' Couch won the first World Championship of Online Poker title of his career on Wednesday. Couch beat out a final table that included a former two-time European Poker Tour High Roller winner and a WSOP bracelet winner to win the $1,050 Marathon Event for a seven-figure score and one of four WCOOP titles won on Wednesday. The final table of the Marathon event included Andrey 'Kroko-dill' Zaichenko and Charlie 'Epiphany77' Carrel. Couch, who began the final table sixth in chips, busted 'blackaces93' in ninth and Zaichenko in eighth to move into third in chips and began his journey towards WCOOP winner. Two-times during the final table, first with six players remaining and then with just two left, Couch politely declined the opportunity to chop. It paid off for him after he eliminated 'irache 87' heads-up to take home the victory and the $222,989.75 first place prize money. Even with his wife set to give birth any day, Shaun 'shaundeeb' Deeb, was still focused on another big score. Deeb made the final table of the $1,050 Single Draw Championship event, but fell in seventh place. In the end, it was the #1-ranked player in Germany who took home the title. 'nilsef', who started the final day with the shortest of the 10 stacks still in play, beat 'WATnlos', another German player, heads-up for the title and $30,511.94 payday. This isn't the first WCOOP title for 'nilsef'. He won a Pot Limit Omaha event in 2010. Joining Deeb and 'nilsef' at the final table was Connor 'blanconegro' Drinan. The EPT Barcelona High Roller champ finished fifth for $11,267.10. Deeb wasn't finished there, though. He also made the final table of the No Limit Five Card Draw Championship event which ends Thursday. His wife Ashley meanwhile gave birth to their second child late Wednesday night. The Super Tuesday Special Edition attracted 1,470 players and after playing down to a final table, the defending champion was still in contention. William 'hellzito' Arruda won this event in 2015 and found himself with the second smallest stack when the final table began. The final table also included Cristian 'progre69' Sampaoli and Narcis 'Narcisus90' Nedelcu. Arruda eventually finished in fourth place while the United Kingdom's 'MonsiuerRask' took down the title, eliminating 'uwintakeit' in third and 'OverTheTop43' in second place, to earn $225,754.16. The last WCOOP title on Wednesday went to Russia's 'nafnaf_funny' after the final four players agreed to a deal in the $320 Omaha Hi-Lo event. Ranked #57 in Russia, 'nafnaf_funny' ended up with $19,545.82 and his second career WCOOP title. He beat out Zhao 'zzwwzzwwzz' Wei heads-up for the win. Wei ended up with $15,156.39 after the chop.
