The 2021 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) roared ahead on Sunday at PokerStars with the WCOOP 63-H: $10,300 Progressive KO High Roller attracting 123 entries for a $1.23 million prize pool to smash to $1 million guarantee by 23 percent.

After nearly eight hours of play, the action was down to just nine final table hopefuls who will resume action on Monday, Sept. 6 at 5:05 p.m. GMT.

Germany's Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph is in prime position for his third WCOOP title with his second one coming earlier this festival when he shipped the WCOOP 24-H: $2,100 NLHE 6-Max for $71,404 last weekend as he will advance to the final table as the chip leader.

Talal "raidalot" Shakerchi was the chip leader near the end of the day but Rudolph roared ahead by first eliminating Rui "RuiNF" Ferreira in 13th place before ousting both Patrick "pads1161" Leonard and Simon "C. Darwin2" Mattsson on the final hand of the day when his ace-ten got there against kings and queen-ten.

The final table is a star-studded affair and Rudolph will have his work cut out for him to earn his second WCOOP title this year. Other big names at the final table in addition to Rudolph and Shakerchi include Sam "Str8$$$Homey" Greenwood, Patrick "thebigdog09" Brooks, Bruno "great dant" Volkmann, Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos, Wiktor "Iimitless" Malinowski, and Alexandros "Pwndidi" Theologis.
