Preben "prebz" Stokkan Wins Second WCOOP Title in WCOOP-21-H: $5,200 NLHE [6-Max, Progressive KO]

Preben Stokkan

A new two-time champion has been crowned in the latest high stakes event of the WCOOP as Norways's Preben "prebz" Stokkan earned his second career title in WCOOP-21-H: $5,200 NLHE [6-Max, Progressive KO]. Stokkan came out on top of a field of 108 entries, which had created a prize pool of $540,000, and defeated Alexandros "Pwndidi" Theologis in heads-up.

The first title of Stokkan also came in the very same format back in 2017 when he defeated a field of 976 entries in Event #65: $2,100 NLHE [Progressive KO, Thursday Thrill SE] for a top prize of $160,824. His repeat victory came with a similar payday as he kept the own bounty of $86,484 and earned a cash prize of $53,626 for a combined payday of $140,110.

Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz Leads Final 13 in WCOOP-25-H: $25,000 8-Max Super High Roller Sunday Slam

Fedor Holz

The first day of WCOOP-25-H: $25,000 [8-Max Super High Roller Sunday Slam] has come to an end after reaching the money. Day 1 of this event saw 106 entry slips sold and when the dust had settled only 13 runners were left to battle it out, with none other than Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz leading the way.

Day 1 ended once the money bubble had popped and it was suiting that Holz was the one to do so. "Horfven" pushed all-in for their remaining stack from the button with king-queen and unfortunately for them, ran into the ace-queen of Holz in the big blind. The board ran out clean, sending "Horfven" out of the tournament as well as ending the day.
