PokerNews' Live Reporting team is gearing up to bring you a blow-by-blow account from 22 WCOOP events between August 22 and September 13. The events our reporters are covering have combined guaranteed prize pools of $34.15 million!
There are some huge events on our radar that we cannot wait to bring you updates from, including the $25,000 8-Max Super High Roller on August 29. Last year's $25,000 Super High Roller attracted 106 of the world's best poker tournament players, who were all outlasted by Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos. The uber-talented Spaniard dealt with Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz when heads-up to secure a $543,686 prize and his second WCOOP title in as many events.
September 12 is the busiest day for both WCOOP players and PokerNews reporters because it is the day that all the 2021 WCOOP Main Events shuffle up and deal. The trio of No-Limit Hold'em Main Events pitch their first cards at 7:05 p.m. CET with the Pot-Limit Omaha Main Events kicking off two hours later.
Andre "PTFisherman23" Marques is the reigning WCOOP Main Event champion. The Portuguese star finished on top of the pile, a result worth $1,147,271. Marques struck a deal with Tonio "prrral4783" Roder ($1,082,523) and Dutch star Teun "tinnoemulder" Mulder ($1,101,528) before emerging victoriously from battle.
Tune into PokerNews' coverage from 7:05 p.m. CET on August 22, and stay with us throughout the 2021 WCOOP.
