WCOOP 2017: The results and highlights from Day 4
Four more events today, with plenty of movement on the Player of the Series leaderboard where everybody seems to be in fifth place. Here's the story of the day...
The headlines from Thursday
Four new winners since yesterday, the biggest of which was flauschi16 of Austria, who won Event 09 for nearly $200,000. There were also wins for FluAnta, Jerry "hummylun" Wong and thehushpuppy, who defeated Mike Watson heads-up for the title in Event #11.
Two other players deserve honourable mentions. Both Mike "goleafsgoeh" Leah and Adam "Adamyid" Owen reached two final tables, putting them towards the Player of the Series leader boar (more on that below).
