After quickly losing Lestingi in 9th, there was the first of two double eliminations at the final table. It was eventual runner-up "blue38bomber" who secured this one, when their big slick held up against two dominated hands.

"161joe161" would earn the other double knockout, and it was undoubtedly the most important pot of the tournament for the soon to be winner. They would flop bottom set on a flop that also gave "pokrherface101" top pair, while "pokaroka31"'s overpair was also miles behind.

The two players were fairly even to start heads up play, so they decided to strike a deal. After "161joe161" scored a massive double up with pocket aces, they would keep the pressure on, before securing the title in a coin flip situation. You can read those details right below.

This is just the start of the Pokerstars COOP coverage here on Pokernews. Over in Michigan, "Pillzebub" just took down a similar event to this, earning over $9,300.

Below you will see what events are still to come in the next two weeks. Pokernews will be providing extensive coverage for all of these, so be sure to come back on Wednesday for more poker action. Good night everyone!

"blue38bomber" Eliminated in 2nd Place *($6,479)

tayke2

Blinds: 200,000/400,000

"161joe161" limped in, and after "blue38bomber" shoved for just under 4,500,000, "161joe161" called with {a-Spades}{8-Spades}. It was a coin flip, as "blue38bomber" showed {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, and the fives held up after the flop of {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}.

However, a ten on the turn gave "161joe161" an unbeatable straight. Only an ace on the river would cause a chop now, but the {5-Clubs} came instead.

The two players made a deal earlier in heads up play, so "blue38bomber" will take a nice payday of $6,479, while "161joe161" will earn $7,507 for their efforts. Stay tuned for a full recap to be posted shortly.

tayke2

Blinds: 400,000/800,000

"blue38bomber" had taken a slight lead in the heads-up battle before this massive pot developed. "blue38bomber" raised to 800,000, and "161joe161" defended their big blind.

The flop came down {10-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Spades}, and after "161joe161" checked, "blue38bomber" moved all in for 11 million effective. It was a massive overbet to the pot, but "161joe161" called it off with {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}. "blue38bomber" showed {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades} meaning any spade would secure the title for them.

tayke2

"M45scdoo" made it one million to go on the button, only to see "blue38bomber" shove for 6.3 million from the small blind. "M45scdoo" called with {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}, and they were ahead of the {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts} held by "blue38bomber."

"blue38bomber" made it 600,000 to go, and "M45scdoo" moved all in for just under 1,800,000. "blue38bomber" called with {a-Spades}{2-Hearts}, but they were well behind the kings shown by "M45scdoo."

"blue38bomber" Doubles Up

Blinds: 100,000/200,000

"M45scdoo" limped in from the small blind, and "blue38bomber" made it 675,000 to go. "M45scdoo" called, and the flop came down {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Spades}. "M45scdoo" checked, and "blue38bomber" fired 485,000. "M45scdoo" check raised to 2,880,000, and "blue38bomber" moved all in for about 4,800,000.

"M45scdoo" called with {q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, but they were miles behind the {a-Spades}{q-Spades} shown by "blue38bomber." The {5-Spades} turn meant only two cards would change the hand now, and neither one came on the river.

tayke2

Blinds: 100,000/200,000

For the second time at this final table, there has been a double elimination, getting us quickly down to the final three. On this hand, "pokaroka31" raised to 400,000 on the button, and both blinds would call.

The flop came down {9-Spades}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, and it checked to "pokrherface101", who bet 662,500. "pokaroka31" moved all in for 2,748,608, and right behind them, "161joe161" moved all in over the top. "pokrherface101" called with {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, while "pokaroka31" showed an overpair of jacks.

However, they were both miles behind "161joe161", who showed {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for bottom set. The {3-Clubs} turn left "pokrherface101" drawing dead, and the {6-Spades} river secured the massive double KO for "161joe161", who now has over half the chips in play.

"pokaroka31" Doubles Through "blue38bomber"

tayke2

Blinds: 80,000/160,000

"blue38bomber" raised to 480,000 on the button, and in the big blind, "pokaroka31" moved all in for just under 1.5 million. "blue38bomber" put them at risk holding {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}, and they were trailing the {a-Spades}{8-Spades} of "pokaroka31."

The flop of {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts} paired both players, and the {3-Hearts} gave "blue38bomber" some extra outs. The {k-Diamonds} river wasn't one of them though, and the eight kicker played to secure the double up.
