Hey folks, today we are going to look at the very recent WBCOOP Tournaments number 11, 12, 13 and 14.
I have not played in any of them because I was not very familiar with that type of poker and because of my time zone.
Let's begin. First tournament we are going to review is WBCOOP EVENT-11 NLHE/PLO.
A total of 459 entrants have entered the tournament as well as Jon Heitmann Pokerstars Team Pro member.
The starting stack was 3,000 chips and blinds were increasing every 15 minutes. So it was very easy to start when the blinds were not increasing that often. However, the chip stack was not that big, so everyone needed to analyse their opponents first and then take some serious action. Jon Heitmann eventually finished in 135th place, he was quite close to winning a SCOOP ticket.
It was a very hard tournament and it took 7 and a half hour to finish. At the end these three human beings were the winners:
While t I am writing this post Sonnya Jade is sitting in a second position of WBCOOP 2013 leaderboard. However Leaderboard statistics are still going to change and change till the end of the series.
WBCOOP EVENT-12 STUD H/L [TURBO]
This tournament was not as popular as the other WBCOOP tournaments, it had 243 entrants. It was a good chance for everyone to win some high value tickets. 96 players have not left the tournament empty handed, but with a big smile in their faces :)
No Pokerstars Pro players have entered this tournament and took slightly less than 4 hours for a tournament to be completed.
The top four winners were:
WBCOOP EVENT-13 4-MAX NLHE
This No Limit Holdem tournament had nearly 500 entrants (497), two of them were Pokerstars Pro players V. Wahlbeck and Lex Veldhuis (L.Veldhuis). Some players had the honour to eliminate Pokerstars Pro players and win 22$ SCOOP tickets.
Starting stack was 3,000 Chips, and blind levels were increasing every 15 minutes. Late registration was 60 minutes, so for those who entered the tournament in the beginning, the play was not as quick as later on. None of the two Pokerstars Pro members reached the money and were bust quite early.
After slightly more than 5 hours the tournament was over and some players were left empty handed, while the winners were not. These are the TOP 4 winners who did the best job:
WBCOOP EVENT-14 5-CARD DRAW
This tournament had a big number of entrants (343), compared with how popular this type of poker is. Frosty012 was a Pokerstars Pro player who joined the tournament and had a 22$ worth of SCOOP ticket bounty on his head. He finished in a 240th place and did not anything (Poor Frosty :/).
Starting stack was 3,000 chips and blinds were increasing every 10 minutes, while the late registration was open for 60 minutes. So it was not boring to start playing early or join later on if you had something else to do if you could not join earlier (for example homework, job related work, while some people needed to cuddle their cat as well).
After 5 and a half hours of a very long play, three winners received their medals (medals are represented by high value SCOOP tickets that are basically medals, but slightly different).
Congratulations to all the winners, I wish you all the best in those SCOOP tournaments and the rest of the WBCOOP!
