"kZhh" Defeats Chris "ImDaNuts" Oliver

Hungary's "kZhh" denied Chris "ImDaNuts" Oliver his third WCOOP title after defeating him heads-up in the WCOOP-34-H: $25,000 Super High Roller at PokerStars to win their first WCOOP title and the huge $657,557 top prize.

The $25,000 buy-in boasts is the largest on the 2021 World Championship of Online Poker schedule. Those that cashed benefited from the $155,100 in added value thanks to the 116 entries coming short of meeting the generous $3 million guarantee.

"kZhh" completed a Cinderella story while denying Oliver one of his own by catapulting to the win despite entering the final table with the shortest stack. Oliver entered the final table with the chip lead but at one point was down to just three big blinds with seven players remaining before he mounted a comeback only to fall just short of the victory.

Final Day Action

The final day began with 15 hopefuls in the hunt for WCOOP glory with all players in the money for at least a $54,828 min-cash. Brazil's Fabiano "Kovalski1" Kovalski entered the day with the chip lead and was near the top of the back when the final table began.

After Mike "SirWatts" Watson and Laszlo "omaha4rollz" Bujtas hit the rail, Oliver went on an absolute tear before the final table began to catapult into the chip lead eliminating Eelis "EEE27" Parssinen, Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford, and Aleksejs "APonakov" Ponakovs in succession.

Oliver maintained the lead as "Sintoras" hit the rail in ninth place before things began to fall apart including doubling up "kZhh" twice. The chip lead bounced around to Kovalski and Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos, while Oliver found himself down to just a little more than three big blinds.

"kZhh" got their first taste of the chip lead after their big slick held against ace-five suited to eliminate Pedro "PaDiLhA SP" Padilha in eighth place. Shortly after, Oliver staged a comeback and was back in the middle of the pack.

Russia's "CrazyLissy" hit the rail next before Kovalski snagged the lead again while eliminating the formidable Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo with his king-nine getting there against ace-ten.

"kZhh" grabbed the lead and never looked back shortly after with five players remaining. They padded their lead further after eliminating Kovalski in fifth place when their tens were good against nines.

The Hungarian continued to roll as the final table terminator. They first ousted Mateos in fourth place when their ace-trey held against eight-deuce suited. Russia's "spaise411" was the next to go in a massive pot where "kZhh" turned the higher flush with six-five suited to their opponent's four-trey suited.

"kZhh" began heads-up play with triple the stack of Oliver and very soon after had Oliver down to just four big blinds. Oliver jammed with queen-four and had to settle for the tasty runner-up prize of $509,470 after he didn't get their against ace-queen.
