We had quite a few WBCOOP Tournaments recently, these are WBCOOP Events number 5, 6 and 7. I participated in two of them, but have not won any tickets, oh well.
WBCOOP Event-5 NLHE Shootout tournament has started with 397 players, considering there was no late registration available, the number was quite big. I finished in 256th position, what is not really bad, but not impressive either. Just before me Team Pokerstars Pro Frosty012 was eliminated (257th place).
And after nearly 5 hours, the tournament was finished and the top finishers were:
1st. 1betur0ut (United Kingdom) - 215$ SCOOP Ticket
2nd-9th place - 55$ SCOOP Tickets.
WBCOOP Event-6 8-Game
I have not participated in this tournament myself; however, there were quite some familiar faces I was familiar with. Some players from my home country, some players I have met in the previous tourneys etc.
8-Game is a mixture of 8 styles of Poker, I suppose it was a big fun for players to adapt to a different style every 6 minutes!
The tournament had 256 entrants, while 108 players won the tickets. It was slightly less than 50% chance to win a ticket, but players needed to show a lot of patience. Previously mentioned Team Pokerstars Pro player Frosty012 reached the final table and was eliminated in 5th place and got himself a 33$ SCOOP ticket.
After exactly 7 hours, the tournament was over. The top 3 winners are:
The next tournament was WBCOOP Event-7 6-Max NLHE in which I participated. From 507 Starting entrants I finished 316th. Considering the blinds were increasing every 15 minutes, it wasn't so bad. However, that was not enough for me, no one likes to leave empty handed, am I right?
Too bad that no Pokerstars Team Pro players participated in this tournament and no one won a bonus 22$ ticket. And only now I understood that I still have not sit on one table with a Pokerstars Pro player and have not got a chance to win a bonus ticket. I hope this will happen soon. Not only because of a ticket, but also for an experience to bust a Pokerstars Pro!
After nearly 6 hours the tournament was finished, and the winners were crowned:
Big congratulations to the winners, tomorrow is another day of WBCOOP series and I am going to take a part!
Best of luck and see you tomorrow!
