"Won it!!! Just took down the #WCOOP 2nd chance $100 tourney for $40,448. I love online poker.", Boeree wrote on her Twitter after the win.
Boeree has been running pretty well in online tournaments at PokerStars this year. In February, for example, she won the Sunday Warm-up and laid hands on $147,780. However, her most notable and biggest win so far in her career was at the 2010 EPT San Remo when she took down the Main Event for amazing €1,2500,000!
PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker is now in the books after that the Main Event and the High Roller event finished early yesterday morning. What an amazing ending the 2010 WCOOP got! Tyson "POTTERPOKER" Marks won the Main Event and took home the biggest cash prize in the history of online tournament poker ($2,278,097) and Alex "Kravchencko" Kravchenko, the russian poker pro who finished in 4th place in the 2007 WSOP Main Event, took home the Eight Game High Roller event ($345,800) after a very exciting final table which included quite a few notables.
After weeks of buildup and handing out prizes for every millionth hand since 49.7 billion, the 50 billionth hand has been dealt at PokerStars. It happened at 10:37 a.m. EDT Wednesday when there were 220,000 players on the site playing on 33,000 tables.
The 50th billionth hands was played on a table named Ornamenta ($,02/ $.05) and the winner of the hand was a player with the nickname "tbvle". For winning the hand he received $56,140 and the other players at the table received between $2,990 and $3,070 - depending on how many VIP points they have earned the previous 50 hands. But that's not all, all players received a $5,200 WCOOP Main Event ticket as well. It must have been an amazing feeling for these players, who were playing for peanuts, to win so much money.
Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, the 2004 WSOP Main Event champ, has been doing very well so far in PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. He ended up in 13th place in event #25 for $4,000 and made it all the way to the final table in event #27 where he got knocked out in 3rd place ($10,000). It will be interesting to see if any other big names will have as big success in 2010 WCOOP as Greg Raymer.
WCOOP Event #22, a two-day tournament, was finalized this noon. The three last men standing in the tournament had even stacks and quickly agreed on making a deal. All of them walked away with a big piece each from the $3 million+ prize pool.
In Event #23, which finished last night, a three-way deal was made as well. However, there wasn't as much money up for grabs in this event as in Event #22.
A big congratulations to all the players who made it to the final table in both these events!
