Just a couple of short years ago, only one player had accumulated five WCOOP titles.
Since then, the picture has changed quite a lot.
Two excellent MTT pros have now taken the lead, both with insane scores – one player has nine WCOOP titles, and another has eight.
With the WCOOP 2020 upon us, all could change again over the coming weeks, but it’s going to take nothing less than a legendary run if anyone is to join the top of the pack.
So as we look forward to the Series, here are the players who have won the most WCOOP titles so far. You’ll also find out who that five-time winner was.
