WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK 2 OF ONLINE POKER 2014

As this high roller heads-up shootout headed into its penultimate round, Dan "djk123" Kelly still had a record fifth WCOOP title in his sights. However, a giant obstacle loomed from above-- a gutsy Belgian who put the young American ex-pat to the test on only the third hand of their semifinal match. Facing a decision for his tournament life, Kelly folded when OtB_RedBaron shoved the river and never quite recovered his mojo. OtB_RedBaron claimed the rest of Kelly's stack and went on to face ForTheSwaRMm in the final round. ForTheSwaRMm had already defeated his own Goliath in the semis, feared heads-up specialist Ben "Ben86" Tollerene, but after 17+ hours of play, he couldn't make it past OtB_RedBaron, who came away with his first WCOOP title and a $224,000.00 payday.'

 

$37,306,605 - Total prize money awarded after 45 events. With the $10 million guaranteed Main Event to come, WCOOP 2014 could beat last year’s total prize pool and even become the richest World Championship of Online Poker ever.

 

$224,000 -  First prize won by ‘OtB_RedBaron’ from Belgium in event 44, the $10,300 NLHE Heads-Up High Roller. He beat ‘ForTheSwaRMm’ from Hong Kong in the final match, while Ben ‘Ben86’ Tollerene and Dan ‘djk123’ Kelly, who was trying to win a record fifth WCOOP title, finished third and fourth respectively for $64,000 each.
