Vieira Banks Ninth WCOOP Title on a Night of Multiple Winners

Joao Vieira

The 2022 PokerStars World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) continues writing headlines, with Joao "Naza114" Vieira winning the ninth WCOOP event of his career, tying him in the all time listing with Denis "aDrENalin710" Strebkov.

Vieira has now won three WCOOP events in 2022, matching the same feat in 2019. The London-based Portuguese superstar took down the $2,100 FL 2-7 Triple Draw event, navigating his way past 33 opponents on his way to glory.

The story could have been totally different because, in addition to his trio of wins, Vieira has finished as a runner-up in four WCOOP events in 2022 alone! His latest bridesmaid finish came in the $2,100 World Championship of 8-Game. Vieira lost heads-up to Canada's "roo_420" and had to settle for a $31,593 score.

Ognyan "cocojamb0" Dimov helped himself to 2022 WCOOP title number three of the series, joining the aforementioned Vieira and Rui "RuiNF" Ferreira in an exclusive club of PokerStars players with a trio of 2022 WCOOP wins to their name. Dimov triumphed in a $10,300 High Roller on the opening weekend of the 2022 WCOOP, won a $215 NLHE 6-Max event last week, and last night walked away with the $5,200 NLHE High Roller top prize of $160,276.

Event 66-H drew in 159 entrants, who created a $795,000 prize pool. As you would imagine in such a high buy-in event, those who made it to the nine-handed final table read like a who's who of the online poker world.

Jakob "Succeeed" Miegel, Gediminas "Gedis92" Uselis, and Samuel "€urop€an" Vousden crashed out to leave six hopefuls in contention for the title and the $160,276 top prize. Despite those superstars bowing out, the likes of Vicente "vicenfish" Delgado, Roman "RomeOpro" Romanovsky, and Poland's "DrawindDead" remained, although they busted out in that order.

David "dpeters17" Peters' third-place finish, worth $97,144, left Dimov heads-up against PartyPoker-sponsored pro Yuri "theNERDguy" Dzivielevski, and Dimov demolished his final opponent to become a three-time winner of a WCOOP event in 2022.

Charlotte "Sjlot" Van Brabander gets to call herself the Women's World Champion after overcoming 77 opponents in the $530 buy-in WCOOP Women's World Championship event. Van Brabander, who used to sport the famous PokerStars Red Spade, sat down at the final table as one of the shortest stacks, but battled through to become a worthy champion.

All eyes were on PokerStars Team Online's Georgina "GJReggie" James, but it was not meant to be. Immediately after making a disciplined and correct fold in a hand against "murr018," James min-raised to 70,000 with suited ace-queen, murr018 three-bet to 245,000 with the dominating ace-king. The action folded back to James, who four-bet all-in for the 1,006,604 chip she had behind, and murr018 snap-called. James flopped a heart flush draw but could not find any of her outs, thus busting in seventh-place for $3,013.

Congratulations to Van Brabander who became the women's world champion after defeating James' executioner, murr018 heads-up.
