WCOOP Day 22: Sweden’s 'compris' Wins 8-Game High Roller for $247K 0001

The 2017 World Championship Of Online Poker played out its penultimate day at Pokerstars on Sep. 24 and what a day it was. Several players helped themselves to potentially life-changing sums of money and Sweden’s “compris” was one of them, scooping a cool $247,975 by winning the WCOOP-75-H: $10,800 8-Game High Roller.

Let's take a look at some of the day's winners.

WCOOP-75-H: $10,800 8-Game High Roller Final Table Results

2Yuri “theNERDguy” MartinsBrazil$166,075
3RunGodLikeUnited Kingdom$127,400
4Luke “lb6121” SchwartzEngland$86,450

Event 75 attracted a compact field of 60 players who made 31 reentries between them to take the total entries to 91. The $910,000 prize pool was shared among the top 12 finishers, with the likes of Matthew “MUSTAFABET” Ashton and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom returning home with prize money; Blom busted the final table by finishing in seventh place.

One of two Swedes at the final table, “ShipitFTW911”, was the first casualty of the final table. "ShipitFTW911" exited during a round of Razz at the hands of his fellow countryman, “compris”, to bust in sixth place, which was good for $47,775.

Next to fall was “Antonio7” during a Stud Hi/Lo round. After losing a huge pot with a pair of kings and nines against Yuri “theNERDguy” Martins’ aces and sevens, Martins took the rest of his stack when he made it to seventh street with {7-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{10-Spades} against Antonio7’s pair of kings.

It was during a limit hold’em round that Luke “lb6121” Schwartz’s tournament ended. Schwartz made a stand with king-rag against “RunGodlike” who held ace-jack and improved to a jack-high straight.

Heads-up was set when "RunGodlike" busted in a hand of Razz. "RunGodlike" was all in on sixth street holding {3-Hearts}{6-Spades}/{6-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} against {8-Clubs}{j-Spades}/{8-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{2-Spades}{j-Clubs}. The river was no help to RunGodlike and he exited in third place for $127,400.

According to the PokerStars Blog, "compris" held a 3,098,958 to 1,420,042 chip lead over Martins and although Martins got close to even during a Stud Hi/Lo round, it was during Triple Draw that Martins fell.

On the final hand, Martins held 6-5-4-3-2 going into the second draw and discarded his six on the third draw only to pull a king. Compris turned over J-T-7-6-3 to eliminate Martins in second place and win the massive $247,975 first-place prize.
