Russia's "LeslieGroves" came out on top of a field of 95 entries in WCOOP-16-H: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller] in just under four hours of play on Day 2. They denied Brazil yet another WCOOP title of the current festival as Rodrigo "Seijistar" Seiji had to settle for the runner-up spot.

After heading into the final day in the middle of the pack with 35 big blinds, they scored the two biggest bounty prizes by knocking out Artur "mararthur1" Martirosian in fourth place and Seiji in heads-up, which boosted the accumulated bounty prizes to a huge $152,422. On top of that came a cash prize of $111,206 for a combined payday of more than 26 times the buy-in.

It was not the first time they reached the final table of a major event on PokerStars as "LeslieGroves" finished eighth in one of the Stadium Series Freezeout Weekly Final - High: $2,100 NLHE. At the end of the festival, they finished seventh in the Stadium Series Freezeout Grand Final - High: $5,200 NLHE which came with a payday of $117,128.

On the final table, Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos proved to be a cat with many lives and doubled numerous times, most often through Martirosian. However, Mateos failed to earn a third WCOOP title and finished in 3rd place instead. Martirosian ended up in fourth place and earned a bigger payday than the Spaniard also thanks to knocking out Ole "wizowizo" Schemion and Joao "Naza114" Vieira in the same hand.
