WCOOP 2016: What's better than a WCOOP title? Two WCOOP titles!


Day

3

The headlines from the third day of WCOOP 2016

The name "eisenhower1" is familiar around these parts. It belongs to Christian Jeppsson, the 2015 Swedish player of the year and Pocket Fives leader board winner, whose surname seems to carry along spare letters. Well now he has a spare WCOOP title.

He recorded his second WCOOP title in as many years yesterday after he won Event #6 of WCOOP 2016. That was worth $72,339 to the Swede, who had to face down a talented line up to earn it. Chad Holloway has the recap of the event, so we won't spoil it for you. It's well worth clicking through to read.

While Jeppsson was making it a double, Juan Pablo "Jpgossn" Gossn was recording a first. The Argentinian won Event #1 of WCOOP (which admittedly feels a little late in getting wrapped up) to collect more than $179,000. The ambidextrous Chad Holloway had this one covered as well, and you can read his report here.

Current leader board standings

What do these two results do to the top of the Tournament Leader Board? Well, a few things.

Connor "blanconegro" Drinan gives up the lead, which is now in the hands of Perfect1232.
As well as winning Event #4 two days ago Perfect1232 also finished 27th place in Event #6, good enough for 25 points, which combined with the 100 for the win leave him top.

Drinan is still in second place after a min-cash in Event #1, a position shared with jpgossn. Jeppsson meanwhile shares fourth place with pablotenisis.


leader board - 7 September 2016.jpg


Coming up on Wednesday

Starting today:

WCOOP-12: $1,050 NL 5-Card Draw Championship, $75,000 Guaranteed
WCOOP-13: $215 NL Hold'em [Progressive KO (50%)], $400,000 Guaranteed
WCOOP-14: $215 NL Hold'em [Big Antes], $200,000 Guaranteed


Concluding today:

WCOOP-09: $1,050 NL Single Draw 2-7 Championship
Connor Drinan may have given up top spot on the leader board but it may well be only temporary. He leads the final ten players in this one, although his chip advantage is a little more than a single ante over Shaun Deeb in second place, a man whose combined 'COOP bracelets, laid out end to end, would reach from where you're sitting right now to about the other side of the street.

Just to add a little extra, Team Online's Naoya "nkeyno" Kihara is in third place. IF you're interested in watching the final table we expect it to start at around 11:00 ET.


WCOOP-11: $320 FL Omaha Hi/Lo [8-Max]
There are 32 players remaining in this one, playing for a first prize of more than $22,000. Bertmobile leads with Team Pro Andre Akkari currently lying in 14th place. The final table should begin at around 18:30 ET.


WCOOP-03: $1,050 NL Hold'em [Marathon Event]
They're down to the last 24 players, with an enormous first prize of $222,000 awaiting the winner. Right now Tomatee is best placed with the chip lead. That's not to say that job will be easy. The line-up also includes Charlie "Epiphany77" Carrel, Andrey "ThePateychuk" Pateychuk, Andrey "Kroko-dill" Zaichenko and Veeea. Final table start time is estimated to be 19:30 ET.


WCOOP-10: $1,050 NL Hold'em [Super Tuesday SE]
A little more to go in Event #10 with 166 players returning later today. Iamivar leads with the field also including the likes of Niall "Firaldo87" Farrell (fifth), ElkY (18th), Matt "Plattsburgh" Vengrin (41st), ThePateychuk (67th), BrynKenney (69th), Adam "Roothlus" Levy (96th), Talal "Raidalot" Shakerchi (137th), Jason "Jcarverpoker" Somerville (160th), and Dylan "ImaLucSac" Linde (166th). The final table, when decided, is expected to start at around 00:30 ET tomorrow.
