PokerStars 2008 WCOOP -- Day 9 Summary Report

PokerStars 2008 WCOOP -- Day 9 Summary Report 0001

Day 9 action in the 2008 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) at PokerStars put two more events and another $700,000 in guaranteed money on the line. A $530 PLHE 6-max tourney (Event #17) and a $215 H.O.R.S.E. gathering (Event #18) brought more than 3,000 people to their computers on Saturday.

WCOOP Event #17: $500+30 PLHE (6-max), $400,000 Guaranteed

Saturday's first event attracted a field of 980 players for a total prize pool of $480,000. The pot-limit hold'em event of the WCOOP saw several names post respectable finishing, including Team PokerStars pros Chad Brown in 20th place ($3,024) and Luca Pagano in 33rd place ($2,016).

Fourteen and a half hours after it started, the winner was determined. Poker1O1 defeated YanniYankiev to win the event, the bracelet, and the $80,400 1st place prize. The final standings:

1. poker1O1 - $80,400

2. YanniYankiev - $60,000

3. QUEEN KAZU - $45,600

4. mikek 15 - $31,200

6. S00tedj0kers - $14,400

WCOOP Event #18: $200+15 H.O.R.S.E., $300,000 Guaranteed

There are two H.O.R.S.E. tournaments during the 2008 WCOOP. While the upcoming $10,300 event is the more prestigious, the $215 is the more affordable and therefore drew a much bigger field. This event drew 2,091 people and had a prize pool of $418,200. Notable finishers included Barry Greenstein who bubbled the final table and finished in 9th place ($3,972.90) and Anna "VietCutie" Wroblewski in 14th place ($3,136.50).

The final table saw Steve "Rabscuttle" Mil finish in seventh place, making it six cashes for him in this year's WCOOP. The heads-up battle following a two-way chop saw Sensor emerge victorious to win the bracelet. The final results:

*1. Sensor - $57,421,66

*2. LittleRedElf - $47,797.46
