Swift Wins Two GCOOP Events; Flora1978 Takes Down High Roller
Table Of Contents
The latest edition of the GCOOP is running online at Grosvenor Poker and seven players have become champions, padding their bankrolls in the process.
Katie Swift Takes Down Back-to-Back Events
Katie "KatieSwiftPro" Swift is a member of the talented Team Grosvenor sponsored pros and she wears the patch with pride. The grinder from Kent has more than $350,000 in live tournament winnings thanks to some excellent results.
Swift finished second in the 2015 Goliath tournament for £46,300 and netted £100,000 for a seventh-place finish in the 2017 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Dusk Till Dawn. Both those results were impressive but didn't see Swift bag a title. She's made amends for that with a brace of GCOOP victories this week.
The first victory came on November 16 when Swift outlasted a 348-strong field in the £5 buy-in PKO event. Victory saw a prize weighing in at £137.35 head to Swift's account.
Twenty-four hours later, Swift was one of the 313-entrants in the £30 buy-in 6-Max event. Eight hours after buying in, Swift was the last player standing and walked away with £1,639.05 for her troubles. Amazingly, she also cashed in the tournament before her first victory and in the event following her second win! No doubt Swift will be playing in the pair of Deep and Steep events scheduled for November 18.
flora1978 Shines in High Roller
Event #2, the £225 buy-in High Roller, took place on November 15 and saw 187 buy-ins collected. The entrants created a £39,270 prize pool, almost double the advertised £20,000 guarantee.
The top 24 finishers received a slice of the pie, with “McReidSandwich” being the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble. Their elimination locked up at least £471.24 for the surviving players.
That minimum prize increased to £981.75 by the time there were only eight players remaining
“ElBaReHplcEdNi” was the first player to crash and burn. “3betwizkid” busted in seventh and won the tournament’s first four-figure prize, namely £1,276.27.
Sixth-place and £1,570.80 went to “it5tricky” before Team Grosvenor Pro Joe “JoeBeeversPro” Beevers saw his tournament abruptly in fifth-place, a finish that saw a prie weighing in at £2,159.85 wing its way to him.
The tournament became even more short-handed when “Geezo” ran out of steam in fourth. This saw Geezo rake in a £3,534.30 prize.
Heads-up was set when “HodlGang212” fell in third for $5,105.10, a healthy return despite firing two £225 bullets. That heads-up battle pitched “flora1978” and “PeanutButtlerFalc” against each other for the large top prize.
Flora1978 got the job done and their hands on the £8,737.59 top prize, leaving the runner-up to receive a £6,675.90 payout.

GCOOP Player of the Series Leaderboard Prizes
|1||£1,500 tickets package|
|2||£1,000 tickets package|
Grosvenor Poker awards you Player of the Series leaderboard points each time you play in a GCOOP event, with more points given for deeper finishes. It certainly pays to take down a GCOOP tournament because that gifts you plenty of prize money plus 150 leaderboard points.
Points are doubled in the Main Event meaning you can lock up 300 points if you come out on top and bag yourself the lion’s share of the £30,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The top 10 players in the Player of the Series race win a prize. These range from a £110 tournament ticket right up to £1,500 worth of tickets for the eventual winner!
Swift is right up there in the top 10 but is ineligible for prizes due to her Team Grosvenor status. This means 11th place will receive a prize if Swift remains in the prize-awarding places.
