Day 10 of the 2020 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) was another massive day for online poker tournament players with 11 new champions crowned. Two of those newly crowned WCOOP champions walked away with scores in excess of $180,000, showing why players from around the world flock to PokerStars during this annual series.
Let’s take a look at the superstars who padded their bankrolls with huge sums of cash.

Matheus “MpZancan” Zancan Takes Down WCOOP-25-L: $215 NLHE [8-Max Sunday Slam] for $182,592
The third and final day of the WCOOP-25-L: $215 NLHE [8-Max Sunday Slam] took place on September 8 and it only took 3.5 hours to crown the champion. Brazil’s Matheus “MpZancan” Zancan is that champion after he triumphed over 7,176-opponents to bag a most impressive $182,592 for his $215 investment.
Zancan’s prize would've been in excess of $200,000 but he struck a deal when the tournament was three-handed which flattened the payouts.
Diego “El Pulgoso” Ostrovich of Argentina was one of those deal makers. Ostrovich crashed out in third-place, but not before ensuring a $119,117 score. The Argentinian benefited the most from the deal because the original third-place prize was worth $101,907.
Ostovich’s exit left Zancan and “mrlogik” of Latvia to lock horns heads-up for the title. The one-on-one battle went Zancan’s way and he secured a potentially life-changing prize of $182,592. This left his Latvian opponent to reel in the $148,135 consolation prize, not a bad result for three day’s work.

NoTilit Wins WCOOP-25-M: $2,100 NLHE [8-Max Sunday Slam] for $228,462
The WCOOP-25-M: $2,100 NLHE [8-Max Sunday Slam] also crowned its champion on September 8. This event also saw the top three finishers walk away with six-figure scores, although there was no deal to speak of.
Patrick “pads1161” Leonard busted on the final table bubble, paving the way for a prize of at least $25,804 for the surviving players.
Francisco “Tomatee” Benitez was the grinder to secure this sum and he was joined on the rail by Russia’s “CrazyLissy” then Dutch star “Pimmss”.
Mexico-based Spaniard David “davaman” Lopez ran out of steam and fell in fifth-place, a finish worth $65,705 before “mmetsla” of Estonia crashed and burned in fourth for $89,722, which was the last prize not over $100,000.
Nobody would have been surprised if a deal had been struck because the pay jumps were substantial to say the least. There wasn’t a deal so Julian “nailju90” Stuer, on his second $2,100 bullet, banked $122,520 when his tournament ended abruptly in third.
Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph and “NoTilit” of Lithuania faced each other in a battle for the title. Rudolph recently won a WSOP bracelet but he couldn’t quite get the job done in this WCOOP event and had to ultimately settle for second-place. Although disappointed not to win, the $167,305 prize Rudolph won will no doubt help soothe the pain of defeat.
Congratulations to "NoTilit" who became a 2020 WCOOP champion, an accolade that came with $228,462 reasons to be happy.
