WCOOP 2015: RuiNF among the big winners over busy weekend

We're into Day 9 of WCOOP 2015. Here's the latest update with 23 of 70 events now completed.


Today's highlights:

There were ten WCOOP results over the weekend, but highlights included:

--Rui "RuiNF" Ferreira adds a WCOOP title to the SCOOP title won earlier this year in Event #14.
--Nlzkm9 beats the likes of Ben Vinson and Chris Brammer to win Event #15.
--Chillolini won Event #18, but Jason Somerville almost stole the show again, Twitching his way to third place (and watched online by 27,000 people).
--Trymean77 finally won a big one, taking down Event#23 to collect more than $31,000.

Round up of latest results

In short it was a busy weekend. But here's the (slightly) longer version.

Rui "RuiNF" Ferreira won Event #14 ahead of 1,454 entries (there was an optional re-entry). It marked his second 'COOP success of the year following his SCOOP success last year. It was not his only result this weekend. He nearly made it two titles in as many days, finishing sixth in Event #19. Al Rash has the report.

Nlzkm9 from Hungary won Event #15 to collect $57,362. As Martin Harris reported, it required getting through a difficult final table, one that included Ben "vindog03" Vinson, and Chris "NigDawG" Brammer. But he did so to collect a first bracelet.

A lot of players might have attracted some attention over the weekend, but only Jason Somerville could officially back it up with numbers. In his case that number was 27,000 - the number of people who tuned in to watch him reach the final table of Event 18 live on Twitch. It wasn't a record (he set that several days prior when that tally reached 34,000) but they did see him come close again. This time he finished third to eventual winner Chillolini. Check out the report by Kristin Bihr for the full story.

Lastly, a hat tip to Trymean77, a former Women's Sunday winner, who once said she could win the small ones but never the big ones. She proved herself totally wrong in fine style this weekend, winning Event #23 for more than $30,000. Read Pauly McGuire's report here.
