Wann2playWinsWCOOP

The 2018 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) came to a sensational close with the conclusion of the Main Event. The top two players chopped and both walked away with at least seven figures. After a two-hour grueling heads-up bout, wann2play from the Netherlands shipped the WCOOP Main Event after knocking out eze88888 in second place.

This year's Main Event a.k.a. WCOOP Event #58-H had a $5,200 buy-in. The field totaled 2,044 total buy-ins with 1,572 original runners who reloaded for 472 bullets and re-entries. The total prize pool topped $10.22 million. It was a close sweat, but the $10 million guarantee did not have to kick in. Initially, $1.5 million was set aside for the champion, with $1.08 million allotted to the runner-up.

Only 17 players returned to the final day od action. Linus 'LLinusLLove' Loeliger started the day with the big stack and almost twice as many chips as second place.

C. Darwin2 bubbled the final table in tenth place. The Swede is one of the top players in the world at the present moment and he narrowly missed his first WCOOP title. Tenth place paid out $72K for the Swede.

The Netherlands had two players at the final table including Noah 'Exclusive' Boeken and wann2play. Exclusive's run ended in sixth place, but he walked away with a nifty score worth $270K.

mczhang hit the bricks in fifth place and PlayaPlz followed in fourth place. With three to go, LLinusLLove was clearly the most-seasoned player still remaining. Alas, it was not meant to be.

LLinusLLove busted in third place after getting picked off by eze8888. LLinusLLove's Carte As de piqueCarte 2 de pique could not come from behind to ambush eze8888's Carte Roi de cœurCarte Roi de pique. Pocket cowboys held up for eze8888 and Linus 'LLinusLLove' Loeliger was dunzo in third place.

Linus 'LLinusLLove' Loeliger banked $764K for his troubles. Not too shabby, eh?

With LLinusLLove on the rail, the final two didn't waste any time to pause the action to discuss a deal. The final two had a lengthy negotiation that lasted nearly 25 minutes. With two to go, eze88888 held a 2-1 advantage with 333M to 177M. After some number twisting, eze88888 and wann2play settled on a deal. They had to leave $200K on the table, but eze88888 locked up $1.257M, while wann2play snagged $1.152M.

The two played heads-up for over two hours. It took only 23 minutes before wann2play seized the lead. eze88888 launched a counter attack and evened up the score before regaining the lead about midway through the match.

eze88888 opened up a 4-1 edge and had wann2play on the ropes, but couldn't deliver the knockout blow. wann2play doubled up with lowly 7-6 offsuit against pocket fives. Heck of a way to avoid elimination. That was eze88888's last chance to seal a win. wann2play rallied and never looked back.

wann2play needed a couple of times to finally knockout eze88888, who wasn't about to roll over and die so easily. It was a good fight and a heck of a heads-up bout. However, it was wann2play's day to shine.

On the final hand, eze88888 made a final stand with Carte Dame de piqueCarte 8 de trèfle against Carte Roi de carreauCarte 6 de trèfle. eze88888 settled on $1.257M for a runner-up's share. Meanwhile, wann2play banked a total of $1,352,967.97 for the victory.
