WCOOP 2017: veeea's win headlines Day 3

Three more results come in with familiar names in the win column. Meanwhile there's a new leader in the fledgling Player of the Series contest as four more events get started today.



The headlines from the day in WCOOP

Artem "veeea" Vezhenkov is the biggest winner of the day, both in the amount won and as a familiar name in the world of online results. He won Event #6, picking up a first prize of $97,389 along with another $100,000 worth of bounties.

Elsewhere there were wins for Pascal "Päffchen" Hartmann in Event #5 as well as josip1313 in Event #7, which was good enough to put him second on the leader board (more on that later).
