Final Table

Paggeot took the tournament chip lead with around two tables left and continued his run, starting the final table with a somewhat sizable chip lead that almost equaled the second and third stacks combined. “C0LD_W0RLD” started the final table third in chips and provided the first two eliminations, knocking out ”aardvark555” in ninth-place and then picking up pocket rockets to eliminate ”justinbrown69” in eighth. ”Upay4mySushi” was the next to go when his king-ten ran into the jacks of Paggeot.

”flopping air” then put a beat on ”122483” by spiking an ace on the river to knock him out in sixth and also eliminated ”PimpMyBalance” in fifth by flopping a set to win a race. ”DeeerTaaaY” was next to go in fourth-place when his eights were defeated after Paggeot’s fours flopped a set.

Paggeot had the majority of chips when three-handed play started but the stacks were virtually all evened up soon after. Paggeot was at risk against “flopping air” but had the lead and held with jacks against ace-ten. "C0LD_W0RLD" then doubled twice through Paggeot to take the majority of chips in play and “flopping air” was soon eliminated in third when his ace-six ran into the ace-jack of Paggeot.

Heads-Up

Heads-up play turned out to be a lengthy battle between warriors as both players fought for nearly an hour with each having several chances to win the tournament throughout. “C0LD_W0RLD” started heads-up play with the chip lead but Paggeot doubled with ace-jack versus king-jack to stay alive and move in front. “C0LD_W0RLD” started to accumulate chips again and had Paggeot all in and at risk with straight and flush draws against queens, and Paggeot got there with a flush on the turn to even stacks up again.

Paggeot was then the one accumulating more chips and faced a river decision that could win him the tournament and ultimately decided to fold trips when facing a river raise. After that hand, Paggeot announced "I'm either the goat or the woat", showing his uncertainty as "C0LD_W0RLD" mucked his hand and Paggeot was left wondering if he was the greatest or the worst to be able to make that play.

Not too long after and in a relatively short amount of time, "C0LD_W0RLD" had two opportunities to claim victory and so did Paggeot, but the at-risk player stayed alive each time. Paggeot then won a number of pots, mostly without showdown, to retake the chip lead once again. The two got the chips in preflop yet another time, this time with "C0LD_W0RLD" at risk with king-jack versus the ace-nine of Paggeot. Both players made a pair on the flop but it was Paggeot still ahead with a pair of aces. The turn brought another ace to finally seal the victory and the unnecessary case ace came on the river to give Paggeot an incredible hand of quad aces to finish off his incredible run.

This concludes the PokerNews coverage for this event in the 2021 PokerStars Michigan Championship of Online Poker. Stay tuned as PokerNews returns to bring you coverage of Day 2 of Event #60: $300 Main Event, $150K Gtd on Monday, September 27th at 6:00 p.m. EST

After a number of hands with only a couple of showdowns and no huge pots, Corey "Corgasm231" Paggeot had once again taken the chip lead.

On this hand, Paggeot called in the small blind before "C0LD_W0RLD" raised to 180,000 in the big blind. Paggeot jammed and "C0LD_W0RLD" called for his remaining 1,214,164 chips.

Corey "Corgasm231" Paggeot: {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
"C0LD_W0RLD": {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Paggeot was ahead but needed to hold for the win. The flop of {k-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Clubs} gave "C0LD_W0RLD" a pair but also paired Paggeot's ace. The turn was the {a-Hearts} and with that, "C0LD_W0RLD" was drawing dead. The {a-Spades} completed the board just to give Paggeot quad aces to win in grand fashion.

"C0LD_W0RLD" will have to settle for the $13,376 second-place prize in a terrific run, while Paggeot will claim the trophy and the $17,646 first-place prize as he wins his second MICOOP trophy and third MICOOP event in a matter of days in yet another very noteworthy tournament.

Paggeot then had a chance to win it on the next hand when getting {k-Spades}{9-Clubs} in preflop against {a-Spades}{2-Clubs} but "C0LD_W0RLD" held on a board of {k-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{q-Clubs} {a-Hearts} {10-Hearts}.

"C0LD_W0RLD": {k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
