WCOOP Day 13: Three New Champions Crowned


Day 13 of the 2009 World Championship of Online Poker offered tournaments in three games that produced three new WCOOP champions. Darryll “df1986” Fish captured the night’s biggest event and $160,525.11 in the no-limit hold’em event. “KRUTHE” took down the pot-limit Omaha with rebuys, and “ShawnZJones” captured the stud hi-low bracelet.

The Event 33 final table featured several big online names including Jordan “scarface_79” Smith, Jeremiah “Believer82” Vinsant, Bryn Kenney, and eventual winner Darryll “df1986” Fish.

The key hand came after a deal was made during three-handed play. Vinsant raised on the button and was called by “nicelife” in the small blind and Fish out of the big blind. The flop fell {3-Clubs}{K-Spades}{8-Clubs} and it was checked to Vinsant who made a continuation bet. After “nicelife” folded, Fish put in the check-raise. Vinsant then three-bet all-in and Fish called, tabling second pair with {8-Spades}{6-Spades}. His read was correct as Vinsant turned up {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for ace-high. The turn and river did not save Vinsant, propelling Fish to the chip lead and eventually the WCOOP title.

“KRUTHE” owned the Event 31 final table. After entering as the chip leader, “KRUTHE” cruised to heads-up play with a huge chip lead over “GotURead”. They agreed to a deal and left the required $14,000 in the middle to be played for. It did not take long for “KRUTHE” to seal the deal. With about a 12:1 chip lead, “KRUTHE” called a “GotUread” three-bet preflop, seeing the flop run out {3-Hearts}{K-Spades}{2-Clubs}. “GotURead” shoved his last few chips and “KRUTHE” called with {8-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{K-Clubs}, having out-flopped “GotURead” who held {J-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}. The turn and river were blanks and “KRUTHE” took down the tournament and $115,144.26.

On the final hand, “Amke" was all-in on third street and while both held a pair of tens heading to seventh street, “ShawnZJones” made aces-up to emerge victorious.
