"POCKETNINEE" Wins PACOOP 11: $200 NLHE [Super Tuesday SE]

Event #11 of the 2020 PACOOP: $200 NLHE [Super Tuesday SE], $40K GTD surpassed its guaranteed prize pool by over 50% Tuesday night, drawing 325 entries (205 entries, 120 re-entries) to produce a $60,450 total prize pool.

Just over six-and-a-half hours of play brought the number of remaining players down to four, and a deal was then agreed upon with "POCKETNINEE" holding the chip lead at the time. A total of $800 was set aside for the winner, which they ultimately claimed to contribute toward their first-place winnings of $9,670.

Only nine players remained after "POCKETNINEE" eliminated "Dkoot74" in 10th place on the final table bubble. The theme of the final table was an overall roller coaster that nobody seemed to be immune to, and "POCKETNINEE" cracked pocket kings with ace-queen during five-handed play to take the chip lead and never look back, single-handedly eliminating "[email protected]", "mord57", "LelandGaunt38", and "gtl666" to amass all the chips in the tournament and claim victory.

"NeolithicFarmer" Wins PACOOP 14: $500 NLHE [6-Max, High Roller]

Event #14 of the 2020 PACOOP: $500 NLHE [6-Max, High Roller], $50K GTD surpassed its guaranteed prize pool Wednesday night, drawing 169 entries (116 entries, 53 re-entries) to produce a $79,430 total prize pool.

Just over five-and-a-half hours of play brought the number of remaining players down to one as "NeolithicFarmer" defeated "ActuallLy" heads-up to claim the first-place winnings of $16,067.12.

The tournament started with 40 registered players, though that number more than doubled in the first three levels of play.

Roughly one-third of the 169 entries recorded throughout the two and a half hour late registration period remained when the prize pool became official, and it took less than an hour from there to reach the money, where the top 23 were paid.

Another hour went by before the final two tables were reached, and eventually, only six remained after "NeolithicFarmer" eliminated "pariszoo11" in seventh place on the final table bubble.
