Written By: Maya Michaels | September 13, 2016 | Posted In Poker News

Both player’s @CrownUpGv and “bench789” turned out to be winners after they both made a heads-up deal in the WCOOP Super High Roller event.

“bench789” who is a very longtime player previously won $102,000 Super High Roller in the WCOP on PokerStars, which in fact is the largest buy in that is an online tournament game in history today.

This amazing player beat Fedor Holz also known as “CrownUpGuy” in a heads up after the two of them made a deal.  Both of these players walked away with over a million dollars.

The lineup went like this:

Player “bench789” in first place from Sweden winning a total of $1,172,461.00

Player “CrownUpGuy” in second place from Germany winning a total of $1,067,639.00

Player “salfshb” in third place from the United States winning a total of $560,000.00

After a very nerve-wracking first day, Day two started at 12:30 EST and these amazing players held nothing back.  While Behbehani “salfshb” did in fact suffer some online connectivity issues, Kurganov by this time was all in the second hand of the day, though no one actually called.

The first to drop was Mikita Badziakouski also known as “fish2013”.  “bench789” raised “fish2013”, then “fish2013” called position before “CrownUpGuy” over called.

“bench789” and “CrownUpGuy” played on for $56,000 as well as earning the WCoop title, but it did not take very long for this tournament to finalize.  Holz intended to push all the action and eventually he played bet over bet within a very large pot on a very large bluff within the foutth hand of this one on one battle for the win.

“CrownUpGuy” was finally eliminated placing him in second place which gave him a total winning of $1,067,639.40.
