Garagnani check-called for 168,750 on the {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}{4-Clubs} flop. The {4-Hearts} turn paired the board and Garagnani fired out for 138,000. Vousden called and both players checked the {6-Clubs} river.

Both players had the same two pair with Vousden holding {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} and Garagnani holding {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. But, Vousden held the better kicker to win the hand.

The 2021 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) progresses onto its second day at PokerStars with many big events highlighted by the final table of the $1 million guaranteed WCOOP-04-H: $5,200 NLHE High Roller.

The tournament attracted exactly 200 entrants on Day 1 to meet its lofty guarantee and after nearly 8 1/2 hours of play, there were just nine players remaining with Pedro "pvigar" Garagnani entering the final table of nine remaining hopefuls as the table captain.

Garagnani is no stranger to WCOOP success as today he will be after his second WCOOP title as he previously shipping the WCOOP-76-L NLHE 6-Max PKO Turbo in 2017 for $45,980.

Meanwhile, Diego "Die Ventura" Ventura, Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph, Michel "FreeLancerZZ" Dattani, and Dinesh "NastyMinder" Alt all advanced to the final table with above average stacks with Samuel "€urop€an" Vousden, Sam "Str8$$$Homey" Greenwood, Pascal "Päffchen" Hartmann, and David "dpeters17" Peters, all advancing with shorter stacks.
