Bruno Volkmann takes down WCOOP 63-H
Bruno Volkmann is an experienced regular from Brazil, whose profit on PokerStars exceeds $1 500 000. The guy made it to the finals of WCOOP 63-H with a $1 230 000 prize pool.
In the tournament, Volkmann showed himself to be a real poker puncher: the Brazilian earned $221 000 for knocking players out of the game. Besides bounty, Bruno also received $111 000 for first place, and thus, his total prize money amounted to $331 000.
PokerStars Ambassadors Benjamin Rolle and Lex Veldhuis were among the competitors on Day 1 but failed to advance to Day 2, finishing their participation in 23rd and 26th place respectively. Whereas Sam Greenwood and Adrian Mateos made it to Day 2 and then to the final. Sam finished the game in third place, and Adrian was first to leave the final table.
Volkmann started heads-up with a big chip lead against Christian Rudolph. The gap was gradually increasing, and soon Rudolph got only 4.7 million (in chips) left against his opponent's 26.1 million.
The last hand occurred when Rudolph bet on the turn with 4-4, and Volkmann called the bet with A-Q, without even hitting the flop. Q appeared on the river, securing Bruno his third WCOOP title.
