Elliott "elliottpet" Peterman Wins Maiden WCOOP Title in WCOOP-42-H: $5,200 NLHE ($146,932)

The UK's Elliott "elliottpet" Peterman entered the final table of WCOOP-42-H: $5,200 NLHE as the chip leader and went wire-to-wire in order to become the latest winner of the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). It was the first WCOOP title for Peterman, who has been based in Costa Rica for several years. The tournament attracted a field of 136 entries, which came up short of covering the $700,000 guarantee by four entries.

Peterman made the most of the minor overlay and claimed the top prize of $146,932 after defeating Daniel "SmilleThHero" Smiljkovic in a short-lived heads-up battle. The nine-handed final table was filled with numerous WCOOP champions, a club which Peterman has now joined after wrapping up the business end of the tournament in under three and a half hours.

The multiple WCOOP winners Sam "Str8$$$Homey" Greenwood, Dzmitry "Colisea" Urbanovich, and Andras "probirs" Nemeth were also among the contenders as well but came up short of going all the way.

Peterman Goes Wire-To-Wire on the Final Table

Peterman led the pack with a stack of 109 big blinds and the first hour brought no eliminations at all. Andras "probirs" Nemeth and Anatoly "NL_Profit" Filatov scored double ups to remain in contention but were then sent to the rail in consecutive hands to reduce the field to the final seven hopefuls.

Jargo "bungakat" Alavali was the next to fall when he ran with king-jack into the ace-king suited of Tom "Daenarys T" Vogelsang and it was also the Dutchman who sent "CrazyLissy" to the rail in order to take over the lead from Peterman. However, Peterman then claimed several bigger pots to storm into a commanding lead with half of the chips in play. Daniel "SmilleThHero" Smiljkovic doubled twice through Vogelsang and knocked out Dzmitry "Colisea" Urbanovich.

Vogelsang was the next to fall and once more it was Smiljkovic who dealt the final blow. Three-handed play was a brief affair as Sam "Str8$$$Homey" Greenwood failed to get there with a suited ace against the pocket pair of Peterman. For the final hand of the tournament, the roles were reversed as Peterman four-bet jammed a suited ace into the pocket tens of Smiljkovic. An ace on the turn sealed the victory for the Costa Rica based MTT grinder.

That wraps up the PokerNews live updates for this event but the next high-stakes contest of the WCOOP 2021 is just around the corner.

Through a series of hands, Daniel "SmilleThHero" Smiljkovic was able to build his stack to around 8.8 million but couldn't threaten the comfortable lead of Elliott "elliottpet" Peterman just yet.

It was then Peterman who opened to 550,000 on the button and Smiljkovic three-bet to 2.1 million with some 6.6 million behind. Peterman gave it some thought and moved all-in to pick up a snap-call.

Daniel "SmilleThHero" Smiljkovic: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Elliott "elliottpet" Peterman: {a-Spades}{9-Spades}

The {3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop kept Smiljkovic in the lead but Peterman improved thanks to the {a-Clubs} turn. None of the remaining two tens appeared thereafter but the {6-Clubs} on the river, ending the run of Smiljkovic in second place for $113,745. Peterman, who had started the final table as the chip leader, went all the way and secured the top prize of $146,932, the WCOOP trophy and title along with it.
