Craig McCorkell Win Ongame $150,000 Champion Chip
The man who won the United Kingdom and Ireland's only bracelet at the 2012 World Series of Poker, Craig McCorkell, has continued his fine run of form by taking down a Sunday Major.
McCorkell, playing under the moniker JAKE CODY, entered the $190+$10 buy-in ChampionChip $150,000 on the Ongame network along with 848 other hopefuls, and after almost 17 hours at the virtual felt McCorkell had won each and every single of the 4,245,000 chips in play; including those of his fellow Brit and sixth place finisher Mathew “get thereeee” Frankland and seventh places Gavin “gavb31_x” Ball.
This latest win – worth $28,661.24 – takes McCorkell's lifetime online tournament winnings past $1,350,000 and cements his places as one of the best poker talents this country has to offer. He is currently ranked 18th in the UK and 144th in the world for online poker tournaments but here at UK & Ireland PokerNews we expect that to change drastically in the coming weeks.
