WCOOP Day 4: Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn Earns WCOOP Bracelet

Alexander Kostritsyn

Well-known players put themselves in position to win bracelets on Day 4 of the 2010 World Championship of Online Poker on PokerStars. Making final tables were Team PokerStars Pros Jason Mercier and Steve "stevesbets" Jacobs, but both fell short in their respective bids for WCOOP gold. That was not the case for Alexander "joiso" Kostritsyn, who took down the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em Two-Day event for $269,284.60. Last year Kostritsyn just missed out on a WCOOP bracelet, finishing in second place in a $2,000 8-Game Mix event. Other winners on Day 4 include "nilsef" and "flashdisastr."
