Ben "Ben86" Tollerene Wins $51k Super High Roller

Tags: 2015 WCOOP, Ben Tollerene, Mike McDonald, super high roller.
Posted on 22 September 2015 by "T".

On Sunday, 46 players from many different countries entered the most expensive online poker tournament to date: PokerStars 2015 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) $51,000 Super High Roller!

Mike "Timex" McDonald was the chip leader when the first day concluded with 8 players. McDonald had a bit of luck on Day 1 when he managed to beat the AK of 2014 WCOOP Main Event champion Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz with A5 in a crucial pot, however, his good run came to an end on yesterday's final table and he went out already in 5th place ($172,500).

The tournament had a scheduled break after 2,5 hours of play, at which point the final trio (Ben "Ben86" Tollerene on top with 409,960, Nikita "fish2013" Bodyakovskiy close behind with 404,456, and José Ángel "Cejakas14" Latorre third with 335,584) discussed a possible deal.

It didn't take long before they agreed to the "ICM"-based numbers: $596,518.34 for Tollerene, $594,069.53 for Bodyakovskiy, and $560,412.13 for Latorre, with $20K left to play for.

Bodyakovskiy was the first player to hit the rail after losing an all in with pocket 6's against Latorre's AJ of hearts. Heads-up play began with Tollerene in front with 666k to Latorre's 484k. Although both players were pretty deep stacked with blinds at only3k/6k, it took less than a few minutes before the final hand was played.

Tollerene bet 42k, Latorre called. The flop rolled out 9DiamondTDiamond7Spade. Tollerene checked, Latorre bet 42k, Tollerene called. Both players then checked to the turn card JDiamond. The river brought the 6Spade. Tollerene moved all in, and Latorre called with his last 468,520.

Tollerene: 8Heart7Heart
Latorre: 9Heart9Spade

Latorre had three-of-a-kind nines but was beat by Tollerene's jack-high straight. Tollerene received the extra 20k and the WCOOP bracelet!

Not a great surprise that the top three agreed to do a deal for the majority of the money but I was quite surprised to see Mike McDonald did not go further.It was said that Nopaleva won a satellite bought with FPP so would be interesting to know if this was the biggest tourney he had played.

I spend 5$ on Mike, and wanted to put 40$ on ben and I was one click away from it Sad unlucky I didnt click bet Sad I wanted to, and I just minimize ps and continue to watch, to see if he will win one more pot, to make sure that I placed my bet right, and when I wanted to bet after that, bet were closed, right before I wanted to bet :S

I hate deals with passion. It such a letdown for an outsider to see these guys fight hours upon hours so at the end they could just share. I don't like socialism in poker.

they were all there for money, and obviosly they care about it... mike mcdonald said that he is like 600k down, so this would pull him up a lil bit, also that russian guy that took 223k he sat himself into this tournament with 25k FPP and he was playing 100$ MTT and he was down 30k$... sure for him 220k$ is biggest win... so I think they all care about money... I dont think anyone there was playing for glory, because online tournament isnt significant as much as live ones Blink
