We called it WCOOP day about a month ago. It was the day we on the PokerStars Blog put the summer behind us and turned instead towards the start of the World Championship of Online Poker. The build-up if you like, some preamble ahead of what is always the highlight of the online poker calendar .....

WCOOP 2014: Creatiff111 claims first Russian victory in Event #4 ($320 PLO 6-Max)

A few days ago, we wondered if Russian players would thrive in this year's WCOOP.
While one victory in four isn't a definitive answer, it's definitely a step in the right direction.
Creatiff111 has scored Russia its first victory in Event #4 ($320 PLO 6-Max). Creatiff111 toppled a field of 1,554 players and earned $76,923.00 in the process, it was the largest single chunk of the $466,200 prize pool .....

WCOOP 2014: SCOOP champ lehout earns WCOOP glory in Event #5 ($320 NLHE 6-Max, Shootout)

No one at this final table wanted to be the first to go broke. To get there, each of its six players won the equivalent of three consecutive single table tournaments, a process that took close to eleven hours. Then, for nearly two and a half hours, six-handed play slogged on before MAMOHT_T broke the seal and eliminated GodsTeacher ....

WCOOP 2014: Championship off to great start with (some) predictable results

In what can only be described as enormously convenient, the opening day's results in the 2014 World Championship of Online Poker demonstrated just how potent the Russian poker community is right now.
Last week we focused on some of the talent coming out of Russia, among them MAMOHT_T, who yesterday finished second in Event #5, a six-max shoot-out, collecting $50.428.62 in the process ....

WCOOP: Draw specialist scuel1975 earns gold in Event #7, $215 NL Draw

Few poker variants today are as well-known yet little-played as five-card Draw. For those who master it there's still plenty of money to be won, not to mention gold bracelets during WCOOP. Event #7 came down to one player who had already won a SCOOP watch and a career-high tournament score playing Draw, and another who specializes in the game but had never had a chance to become a COOP champion in it ....

WCOOP 2014: win to eat gobbles up Event #8 title ($215 NL Omaha Hi/Lo, 6-Max)

Could you locate Moldova on a map? A tiny Eastern European republic sandwiched between Romania and Ukraine, Moldova could fit inside the state of Maryland and has about 200,000 fewer residents than the city of Los Angeles. Although the WCOOP has been in existence since 2002, it wasn't until tonight that a Moldovan player captured a bracelet. At a tough final table that included PCA Main Event runner-up Kyle Julius, Moldova's win to eat ran roughshod over his opponents, emerging with a $36k score and his country's first WCOOP title ....

WCOOP 2014: WhatIfGod was one of us, wins Event #10 ($215 PL Omaha, Knockout)

Pot Limit Omaha already has a big element of gamble involved, but tack on a bounty to each player and things can get wild. The tenth tournament of the 2014 World Championship of Online Poker did just that with a $150,000 guarantee along with it ....

A chip lead is preferable, but it guarantees nothing, no matter how deep the tournament is.
Our champion, plattsburgh, was made well aware of that fact after having to battle a dominant chip leader throughout the final table ...

WCOOP 2014: janik446 is a stud maestro after binking Event #15 [$320 Stud H/L]

You missed one heck of a heads-up battle between janik446 and Mr Negreanu. It was like one of those epic heavyweight fights with a grandiose nickname like the "Rumble in the Jungle." The final two in WCOOP Event #15 Stud Hi/Lo squared off in a sensational pugilistic tango that lasted almost 200 hands ...

Ryan "gutshtallin" Welch on winning his first WCOOP bracelet

It seemed like we spent a long time waiting for the World Championship of Online Poker to start, and now the first week is almost over. In six days of play 13 new champions have celebrated their first title, and perhaps the most familiar of those came on Monday, when Event #3, the Sunday Million Special Edition was won by Ryan "gutshtallin" Welch ...

WCOOP: CHRISCCC bobs, weaves to $105K win in Event #14, $530 NLHE (6-max, Knockout)

Event #14 was the first regular no-limit hold'em knockout tournament of the 2014 WCOOP schedule. With two days of 6-max poker to be played, the last player standing would have to demonstrate not only skill and cunning, but stamina as well. In the end CHRISCCC of the United Kingdom outlasted the field, winning a career-best prize and a first WCOOP bracelet to boot ....
