Although a known tournament pro made the final table of event #8 of the WCOOP, a $530 buy-in Limit Omaha H/L event, the winner of the tournament was an amateur. A player simply called Copi beat a field 917 entrants to take the $103,804.40 first prize in a prize pool of $458,000, 150 thousand dollars greater than the initial guarantee.
Tournament pro Ch0ppy, ranked 13th in the world by pocketfives.com, made the final table of the tournament but was knocked out in 8th for just under 10 thousand dollars. This happened after missing a flopped monster straight draw against another player’s two pair. The only other notable cash was O.Mustang, the 2nd place finisher in the Omaha event two days prior, who finished in 36th. Bel0wAb0ve, JohnnyBax, zangzeban24, and THE__D__RY all entered the tournament but failed to finish in the money.
