Don't really know what I'm doing... fun nonetheless." When all was said and done, Julius wrote, "I won the 1k WCOOP championship! Now for some cocktails and football to get ready for the big day tomorrow!" There were 153 entrants in the $1,050 Limit Hold'em Six-Max tournament and by the time the final table rolled around, Julius held the chip lead. Entering heads-up, Julius was up 2:1 in chips. After a brief discussion of a chop, Julius and Dancer King played on, with the former taking down three big pots in a row. On the final hand, Dancer King was all-in on a flop of J-7-6 with K-9 of diamonds only to see that Julius had aces. The board ran out 2-Q, giving Julius his first WCOOP bracelet and $36,000: 1.
