Gavin Cochrane woke up on Tuesday knowing that his fate in the World Poker Tour World Online Championship 8-Max event was largely in his own hands. Cochrane started the final table with nearly 1/3 of the chips in play and a stack double the size of his nearest threat. Over the five hours of final table action, Cochrane eliminated five of his eight competitors to become the first player to earn inclusion in the WPT Champions Club by winning an online poker tournament. Along with getting his name engraved on the Sexton Cup, Cochrane earned entry into the next WPT Tournament of Champions and can buy-in to the event in any subsequent year. Not long after cards were in the air Cochrane opened to 700,000 from middle position before Sam Grafton got his last 281,000 in the middle. Dmitry Yurasov re-raised to 3,200,000 and Cochrane folded. The board ran out [poker card="qc"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="jd"][poker card="kh"] to eliminate Grafton in ninth. Grafton's elimination didn't do anything to increase the pace of other bustouts and it took 45 minutes to lose another player. Ognyan Dimov moved all in from UTG for 4,100,000 with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"] and Boivin called. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="js"][poker card="ts"] flop gave Dimov top two pair but left Boivin drawing to 15 outs twice. The [poker card="2s"] turn was one of those to give Boivin control. Dimov was unable to fill up on the [poker card="ad"] river and was out in eighth. Just ten minutes Jiachen Gong later moved all in from UTG for 4,700,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] before Daniel Colpoys called from the big blind after waking up with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="8d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3s"] flop didn't look goo for Gong but he did pick up the nut flush draw with the [poker card="qs"] turn. The river was the [poker card="kd"] to miss Gong's draws and he finished in seventh place. Cochrane unofficially took the reigns 25 minutes later after winning a coinflip for the biggest pot of the tournament to this point. Cochrane raised to 1,000,000 from middle position with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] before Colpoys moved all in for 10,300,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"]. Cochrane called and the [poker card="qs"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"] flop kept him in front. Colpoys found no relief on the [poker card="7h"] turn or [poker card="5s"] river and was sent to the rail in sixth. It took just seven minutes for Cochrane to find another victim. Cochrane raised to 1,000,000 wit4h [poker card="ks"][poker card="7s"] before Shyngis Satubayev moved all in for 4,700,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"] and Cochrane called. The [poker card="Qd"][poker card="ts"][poker card="8s"] flop hit both players with Satubayev leading with second pair. The [poker card="kd"] turn gave Cochrane top pair to go with his flush draw and the [poker card="3d"] river was a blank to make Satubayev's fifth place finish official. Yurasov became the third consecutive player eliminated by Cochrane but it took nearly two hours of four-handed play to get there. Action folded to Cochrane in the big blind and he moved all in for 27,100,000 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. Yurasov called off his last 7,300,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="8h"]. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="7c"] to eliminate Yurasov in fourth. Two hands later, Cochrane folded his button before Lars Kamphues moved all in for 7,400,000 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="8d"] and Boivin called with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"]. The board ran out [poker card="7h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="3h"][poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"] to give Boivin the pot and eliminate Kamphues in third place. Boivin started heads-up play holding 65% of the chips in play but lost the lead after 15 minutes of play. Another half hour passed before Cochrane finished off his final opponent. Boivin called from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="4d"] before Cochrane opted to raise to 4,000,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"]. Boivin responded by moving all in for 22,600,000 and Cochrane called. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7d"][poker card="td"][poker card="jh"] runout changed nothing and Boivin was done in second giving Cochrane the victory.

Adrian Mateos captured the third PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title on Sunday. On Monday, he won his second title in as many days after chopping the Event #25 High ($25,000 8 Max NLHE, Super High Roller Sunday Slam) with Fedor Holz. Mateos earned $543,685.63 after the deal with Holz and now has four career WCOOP titles. Holz, who won his second career World Series of Poker bracelet on Saturday, had to settle for runner-up status and a $515,293.82 payday. English grinder Luke 'Bit2Easy' Reeves took home $353,117.47 for coming in third place. One-time November Niner Sylvain 'calculer_' Loosli won his first WCOOP title on Monday, beating out 437 other entries in Event #27 High ($1,050 NLHE Freezeout) to add $78,182.44 to his bankroll. Joel 'jvieiradias8' Dias and Guillaume 'Nolet20' Nolet were the final two players left standing in Event #24 High ($1,050 NLHE Sunday Warm-Up).
