Congratulations to Eduardo "Eduardo850" Silva, Winner of WCOOP-63-M: $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO] for $224,375
The World Championship of Online Poker just added another champion after just six hours of play during the final day of WCOOP-63-M: $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO]. The 1,930 entry field saw just 16 return for the final day and when the last chance saloon had closed for business it was Eduardo "Eduardo850" Silva reigning supreme, taking down a WCOOP title and $224,375 for that feat.
Silva started the day slightly above average and began the final table third on the totem pole. It was not long before the Brazilian started his run of cards which began with a double through "Play4livin", who was leading at the time. Silva's kings took down the lead-changing pot, and he then added two bounties quickly. Dropping Timothy "TruthBeTold7" Rutherford and Andrey "Lucky_Jew_17" Parugaev to take a commanding lead.
Silva cruised into three-handed play before any real threats came afoot, having "baaaaddyyyy" chip away at his mountain of chips but an ill-timed squeeze by "baaaaddyyyy" resulted in the champ collecting another bounty with kings, setting the heads-up portion of the event.
Guilherme "Guizãoo_" Carmo was at a large deficit to begin but managed to take down a few pots quickly, including a gut-read with ten-high. But Silva picked up another premium hand shortly after, extracting every with aces from Carmo who had a lower two pair. Carmo was dubbed the runner-up and took home a respectable $163,192 in total prizes.
