Final Table Action
Rob "robc1978" Cowen was the first player to fall on the final table being eliminated by "Grekzorba". Next to exit was Brazil's "HudsonCE", who had flopped a set of fives, only for "AlexKP" to hit their gut-shot straight draw on the river.
"wnbgambler", gone in fifth, was another player who experienced an unfortunate river card, as "edu22.sp" hit a third queen to move ahead of their top pair top kicker. "AAlexKP" then got their second final table scalp ridding "Grekzorba" from the tournament in fourth place.
"AlexKP" then secured a hat-trick of eliminations after flopping two-pair against the ace high of "edu22.sp". "AlexKP" lost a huge pot in the fourth hand of heads-up play to have an impossible task in front of him, they held on for a few more hands before "Nlzmkm9" went runner-runner to scoop the pot and WCOOP title.

"Nlzkm9" must have thought they had one hand on the WCOOP title after scooping a 71 million pot just a few hands prior. "AlexKP" who was ahead preflop, with two kings in their hand, was left with less than 4.5 million after their opponent turned a full house.
In the final hand of the final day, "AlexKP" raised to 1.5 million with "Nlzkm9" making the flat call. As expected, the remainder of the chips were shipped into the middle on the flop.
On the flop, "Nlzkm9" only had a pair of fours but improved to two pair on the turn. It would be the second time in quick succession for "AlexKP" where their opponent would go runner-runner to make a full house on the river.
"edu22.sp" eventually ran out of luck against "AlexKP" who called the Brazilian's 3.5 million three-bet preflop. They followed up their three-bet, firing for 5 million on the flop. "AlexKP" responded by putting his opponent all-in and "edu22.sp" reluctantly obliged with the bet.
"AlexKP" with two-pair was out in front against his opponents ace-high, the turn gave "edu22.sp" a glimmer of a chance of survival, but that hope was crushed by the to take the game to heads up play.
The next hand after leaving "Grekzorba" with a stack of 2.1 million, "AlexKP" finished off his opponent's WCOOP dream.
"Grekzorba" went all-in over the raise from "AlexKP" and had two callers in "edu22.sp" and original raiser "AlexKP". The flop checked through to the turn which checked through again. "AlexKP" fired small in the river to get "edu22.sp" out of the way before showing "Grekzorba" their rivered straight for the win.
Both players moved in their stacks in a single raised pot after the flop brought in the flop. "AlexKP" flopped the nut-straight with his opponent hitting a set of tens.
The turn and river came running three's, which aided "edu22.sp" chances of winning the tournament by giving him a full house.
After that huge double, "Nlzkm9" opened on the button before getting raised by "AlexKP" in the small blind. "Grekzorba" moved in his small stack for "Nlzkm9" to get out of the way and get a call from "AlexKP"
"Grekzorba" was in a precarious position on the flop before holding on the turn and river.
"Nlzkm9" raised to 3.4 million in the small blind after "Grekzorba" opened to 800,000. The latter called the raise to see the flop. All the chips went in on the flop to create a huge 29.8 million pot.
"Nlzkm9" was ahead with their aces, and then improved to set on the turn. "Grekzorba" needed a jack on the river to bust his opponent but was left with little after the river.
"wnbgambler" raised to 1.4 million before calling off the rest of their stack after "edusp.22" three-bet in the big blind.
"wnbgambler" stayed in the lead on the flop and with top pair but the river gave his opponent three of a kind to claim the pot.
