Poker players in Ontario got their first chance to compete for a PokerStars title when the inaugural Ontario Championship of Online Poker (ONCOOP) began on Saturday.

Event 3-H: $100 No-Limit Hold'em [8-Max, Progressive KO]

Arlie "Prince Pablo" Shaban, the popular Twitch streamer and PokerStars Team Pro, kicked off the series with two final table appearances. One would come in Event 3-H: $100 No-Limit Hold'em [8-Max, Progressive KO] as Shaban navigated his way through a field of 185 entries.

But it would prove to be a short one. Shaban shoved his last 114,405 from the button with king-nine and was snapped off by big blind "degausser88" holding two aces. The flop contained a king and a nine to give Shaban two pair, but it also had an ace as "degausser88" made top set to send Shaban out in eighth place, good for $197.27 and $323.83 in bounties.

"Feath21" secured a massive double up through "everboar" with aces against ace-queen to approach 2,000,000 and take a massive chip lead over the rest of the table five-handed. "degausser88" would win a three-way all-in pot worth 1,563,920 when, holding king-jack, he outflopped Steve "BetrThanPhil" Tripp and "everboar" both holding ace-jack.

Left with just 214,809 after the hand, Tripp would double up with two nines to climb back into contention. "TedDebiosi" fell in fifth place after running into a massive cooler, his king-high flush coming up short against the nut flush of "everboar." "degausser88" was eliminated in fourth when they called all in for 347,566 with two nines before "everboar" rivered another ace-high flush.

Tripp would make a flush on "everboar" to send them out in third place and take a 3,096,448 to 1,528,552 chip lead over "Feath21" into heads-up play. Tripp, whose $3.8 million in online winnings include a SCOOP title in 2018, missed a chance to close out this title when he couldn't connect on the board with queen-jack against ace-deuce, "Feath21" finishing with a full house to double up.

"Feath21" would double up again after calling their last 625,657 on the river with two pair, nines and sixes, to beat Tripp's top pair of aces. On the final hand, "Feath21" shoved from the button and Tripp called for 627,272 with ace-eight. "Feath21" held two fours and won the coin flip to earn the title and $1,341.98 top prize to go along with $2,087.34 in bounties.
