WCOOP Event #19: Lee Nelson can't keep up
In stevesbets semi-final match he played so fast that his opponent ziv ziv commented that he thought be was playing against a computer because no living human could possibly play that rapidly. Enter ElkY, who a Starcraft video game wizard and placed second in the Cyberworld Games, and you have a matchup of lightning fast decisions in which the players must have seen at least twice as many hands as in a normally paced match. The pace of the match was truly remarkable and the lead shifted back and forth multiple times.
At one point Elky had a 3-to-1 chip lead after stevesbets allegedly mis-clicked (I can't imagine why), but stevesbets clawed his way back to even. They jockeyed back and forth at the same precipitous rate, but when the dust settled stevebets emerged victorious and collected the $560,000 first prize with Elky taking home $320,000 for second.
I wonder if they can spend that loot as fast as they made it? I wouldn't bet against it!
