Juninho23 Wins the 2020 GCOOP Main Event
The 2020 GCOOP is done and dusted after all 19 events crowned their champions. “Juninho23” is the name on everyone’s lips, however, because they took down the GCOOP Main Event.
Those of you who remember the early days of the English Premier League will remember the diminutive Middleborough and Brazil forward Juninho, who happened to wear the number 23 shirt. He was a little magician on the pitch and his namesake produced some magic in the GCOOP Main Event.
Some 459 players bought in and created a £45,900 prize pool that the top 64 finishers shared. There was more than prize money up for grabs because the Player of Series leaderboard points were doubled for this event.
All but one of the eight finalists walked away with a four-figure score.
Eighth-place finisher “ThatA55” collected £963.90 before “DomLimpsche” fell in seventh for £1,147.50.
“3betwizkid” and “5winebag” were the next casualties. Their deep runs rewarded with a £1,377.00 and £2,065.50 prize respectively. Then came the exit of “AnonymousD” whose fourth-place bust-out resulted in a £2,983.50 payout.
Jeff “JeffKimberPro” Kimber, one of the members of Team Grosvenor, was the player who ran out of steam in third place. Kimber added £4,590.00 to his Grosvenor Poker account, leaving “DreadfulDonk” and Juninho23 heads-up.
The pair didn’t strike a deal despite a near £2,000 difference in the payouts. This meant Juninho23 ran off with an £8,399.74 prize when the won all the chip in play, leaving DreadfulDonk to claim the £6,426.00 consolation prize.
