MicroMillions 8: WCOOP Champion OhRaisyDaisy blossoms with win in Event #77 ($3.30+R NL Omaha, 6-Max)
OhRaisyDaisy, who previously had won a WCOOP title in 2013, began the final table of MicroMillions Event #77 with a slim lead but the close proximity of the rabid chase pack was not a deterrent. The pressure barely fazed OhRaisyDaisy, who never looked back. The Russian smoked the remainder of the final table to join an elite group of players as the newest MicroMillions champions.
MicroMillions 8 Event #77 $3.30+R NL Omaha (6-Max) attracted an impressive 4,492 runners. They crushed the initial $20,000 guarantee when the prize pool swelled to $42,465.00 with 6,714 re-buys and 2,949 add-ons. The top 570 places paid out with $6,478.76 originally set aside to first place.
PokerStars Team Pros Marcel Luske was one of the familiar faces taking a shot at a MicroMillions crown. The Flying Dutchman went deep, but not deep enough to advanced to the money.
