"C0LD_W0RLD" Eliminated in 2nd Place ($13,376)


Blinds 30,000-60,000

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.

A full recap is to follow.
