“spaise411” Wins 2021 WCOOP-22-H: $5,200 NLHE PKO High Roller ($149,837)

Russia’s “spaise411” came out on top of a field of 160 entries in WCOOP-22-H: $5,200 NLHE PKO High Roller to claim their maiden WCOOP title, denying the third victory for Pedro “pvigar” Garagnani. Both shared the biggest slice of the $800,000 prize pool, as “spaise411” boosted their bankroll with a combined payday of $149,837.

Little is known about the player from Russia, who surfaced on the high-stakes cash game tables back in 2015 and battled against some of the biggest names in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi and Hi-Lo, as well as draw games. They were in the middle of the pack when the action resumed with 20 players remaining and started the heads-up against Garagnani with a commanding lead despite having collected by far fewer bounties.

Other notable finalists included the 2020 SCOOP Main Event champion Pablo “pabritz” Brito Silva, Andras “probirs” Nemeth, Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph, and Thomas “WushuTM” Muehloecker. PokerStars ambassador Ben “Spraggy” Spragg was eliminated on the final two tables and the same also applied for Patrick “pads1161” Leonard, who had won two WCOOP titles during the current festival already.
