Day 2 Completed
It took around six and a half hours for Audrius "Stakelis24" Stakelis to take his start-of-day chip lead and collect all the chips in WCOOP-14-M: $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Super Tuesday SE] with it, but he didn't have an easy run of it. He had to battle through 81 players who returned on Day 2, out of the original 1,071 entries, with most of the $1.071 million prize pool still in play.
The WCOOP title adds to an already strong resume of online wins for Stakelis that includes a SCOOP title from 2020 worth $73,674. Before today's win, he had more than $150,000 in 1st place results since 2019 online, so this prize of $174,896 just adds to an already strong last few years.
His run looked like it might be cut short in early action. He came into the day as the chip leader, but that quickly changed after he lost some to Jerry "Perrymejsen" Odeen in the very first hand of the day, then lost another big one a few minutes later to drop to about half his start stack after "aminolast" cracked his queens with ten-nine suited.
He managed to survive both those players however, making it to the final table 5th in chips. He hung around with solid play while watching Harry "Iamapoopie" Lodge run roughshod over the final table, amassing a huge stack.
Lodge had a couple chances to win it during the heads up stage, but in the end lost a huge pot with the worst ace on an ace-high board and couldn't recover. Stakelis took it down a few hands later with ace-seven over king-jack.
