The APAT World Championship Of Amateur Poker (WCOAP) has reached the halfway stage and the big results just keep on coming. This is what’s gone on in the WCOAP over the past couple of days.
Adam Snee Wins High Roller Championship
The prizes in the $265 buy-in High Roller Championship event were definitely on the large side and it was Adam Snee who banked the biggest of those chunky prizes, the festival’s first five-figure prize.
Snee topped a field of 284 entrants and the British grinder saw his $265 investment swell to $13,850. Snee defeated Netherlands’ Hugo Allen when the tournament was heads-up, resigning Allen to a $9,669 consolation prize.
Everyone else at the final table walked away with between $2,018 and $6,818.
Tenno Tonts of Estonia was the final table’s first casualty before Marc Foggin busted in sixth. Adrien Dalmas and Glyn Wellings crashed out in fifth and fourth place respectively, before Alexander van der Swalus saw his tournament end in a third-place finish.
