"gnetaren" Takes Down WCOOP-71-H: $2,100 NLHE ($134,908)

Sweden's "gnetaren" took down the WCOOP-71-H: $2,100 NLHE [8-Max, Super Tuesday SE], $650K Gtd on Wednesday as part of the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) for a first place prize of $134,908. In doing so, "gnetaren" denied Brazil's Will "hellzito" Arruda a second WCOOP title by eliminating him in second place for a score of $101,615. Arruda previously took down the $1,050 NL Hold'em event in 2015 for $259,203.

The Super Tuesday event had 369 total entries and surpassed its guarantee with a total prize pool of $738,000. Only 16 players made it to Day 2, each with at least $7,103 locked up. PokerStars ambassador Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis made it to Day 2 and was eliminated in 12th place for $11,481. It took less than an hour for players to play down to the final table, which began with nine players left.
