Main Event final table review, Main Event results in Low and Medium, a couple of strange hands from “LlinusLlove” and WCOOP leaderboard results.
How Sergey “CrazyLissy” Denisov got promoted with 17 big blinds and dragged the Main Event WCOOP
The new world champion in online poker is Sergey “CrazyLissy” Denisov. The future champion made the final table with the shortest stack of 17bb. In the first hour “CrazyLissy” doubled with AA vs TT Linus Löliger, in the next hand against “Rebel FishAK” added another + 50% to the stack.
One of the key hands for CrazyLissy happened in 8-handed. “Necgaidziai” opened UTG + 1 with K8s minraise, “CrazyLissy” defended the big blind with a pair of Nines. On the flop, “necgaidziai” made a flush, and “CrazyLissy” made a set, which was reinforced by a full house on the turn.
In 5-handed, CrazyLissy knocked out the best hand. Bb defended preflop. And on the flop he raised a continuation bet from Rebel FishAK – he folded his cards.
In a 4-max stack, “CrazyLissy” was in a fever up and down. Every 4-max competitor has been a chip leader for a while. The future champion had to play “everything” several times.
First, “CrazyLissy” won the field with a pocket pair of Threes against Nines.
Then he strengthened his position in placing with AA vs A2s.
And once again I had to play for all with pocket Jacks against AKs “Rebel FishAK”.
“CrazyLissy” started heads-up with a chip lag of 36bb against 62bb (in 3-handed Lefrancois knocked out Chu in an Eights against Fives). The game lasted an hour. In the depth of 34.5 bb Lefrancois pushed AJo, Denisov received a pair of tens.
After this hand, Lefrancois was left with 1 big blind, but failed to spin. Final display on the main photo.

Linus “LLinusLLove” Löliger’s two strange hands in the WCOOP Main Event
The final table was played by regular expensive cash game Linus “LLinusLLove” Löliger. Linus was in the lead after the second game day, and went to the final table with the seventh stack, most of which he shipped to Denisov in the field with Tens against Aces at the very beginning of the final day.
But the most interesting hand with LLinusLLove came in 7-handed. Löliger had 8 big blinds. He opened from UTG + 1 with a 5bb raise on A3s. “Random_chu” just called on CO with AKs. Marco “marcozevola5” Zevola shoved all-in on SB 16 bb, to which “LLinusLLove” passed, and “random_chu” called. However, it was not possible to survive the pagejump.
Another distribution with the participation of “LLinusLLove” is discussed on the forum 2 + 2. It happened on the first day of the Main Event.
