WCOOP 2017: Nick "PureCash25" Rampone's win in Sunday Million headlines Day 9
We're now up to our necks in WCOOP, that glorious period in which everything we look back on is WCOOP, and so if everything we look forward to. We're wallowing in it, there's no shame in that. So we have four more results for you today, with more events starting. Even better news: we're not even half way.
The headlines on Tuesday
Four winners today, the biggest of which was Nick "PureCash25" Rampone who won the special edition Sunday Million for a first prize of $256,000. David Aydt had the final table report from this one which you can read here.
There was a big win for wiciu777 in the special edition Sunday Warm-up. That was worth $222,000 to the Pole, who defeated Oscar "MendaLerenda" Serradell heads-up, as well as a pretty tough final table. Read Jason Kirk's take on that result here.
