As the 2021 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) closes out, Andras "probirs" Nemeth of Hungary won his third title by taking down the WCOOP-92-H: $10,300 PLO [6-Max, PLO Main Event] for a massive $308,556 score. Nemeth entered the final table on Day 3 as chip leader and was able to get it done by defeating Denmark's "AlexKP" during heads-up play. For his second-place finish, "AlexKP" saw a cash of $237,169.

Nemeth earned both his previous titles in 2020 by taking down the $530+R NLHE 8-Max and the $5,200 PLO 6-Max. "AlexKP" was also after a third WCOOP title, having won the $215 No Limit Hold'em in 2010 and the $1,050+R PLO in 2013.

The tournament had a million-dollar guarantee and smashed that with a $1.5 million prize pool off of 147 entrants. Only 35 players made it through Day 1, though they were joined by a few dozen more who late-regged before the start of Day 2. Seven players survived the second day to make it to the final table on Day 3, including "Ben_Apart" of the United Kingdom, Ami "UhhMee" Barer of Canada and Ola "Odd_Oddsen" Amundsgard of Norway.

Ka Kwan "kaju85" Lau was eliminated on the bubble in eighth place for $50,682 when his naked aces ran into the full house of Nemeth, marking the beginning of what would prove to be a strong showing by the eventual champion.

Day 3 moved fast as three players were eliminated within the first hour of play, with "Mr Juhlen" being the first out in seventh place when their kings couldn't hold against the straight of "plspaythxbye," who eventually busted in fourth when it was Nemeth who had the straight and "plspaythxbye" had a set of aces.

"Ben_Apart" was knocked out in third place for $182,298 when he had two-pair and called off a river shove by "AlexKP," who had a wheel.

Heads-up play didn't last long as Nemeth took a commanding chip lead when he got it in and doubled up with eights full of kings against the missed draw of his opponent, leaving "AlexKP" with just a few million chips.

"AlexKP" lost what was left of his stack when he got all-in on the flop with a straight draw and was eliminated when he missed and Nemeth took down the pot and secured the victory with a pair of queens.
