For just about 15 hours worth of work, $123,000 isn’t a bad payday. Just ask dcg30, who finished in the top spot in the 49th event of PokerStars’ current WCOOP running.
Kicking off at 12:00 ET on September 22 and wrapping at 3:14 ET the following morning, 1,654 players bellied up to the digital tables for this $200+$15 No Limit Hold’em event. Each player was allowed one rebuy and one add-on (costing an additional $200). Not willing to simply bow out after one beat, 1,172 of the contestants opted for a rebuy, while 942 spent the additional cash to pad their chip stack.
When all the rebuys and add-ons were tallied, this particular WCOOP event more than tripled its $250,000 guarantee. The total prize pool reached an astonishing $753,600, which would go on to be split between the top 216 players.
Here’s how the final table shook out:
#1 – dcg30 ($123,628.08)
#2 – slvrmountn ($90,432)

It was something of a tough day for the pros, with only some making the money. Tops among the group was Jorj95, whose 106th place finish was worth $1,281. Next up was diatty in 113th, with a $1,205.76 cash. Vgreen22 also cashed, with $866.64 paid for a 190th place elimination.
