WCOOP logo

A total of thirty two and a half events have now been completed at the 2013 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, meaning we are now at the halfway stage of the series. What a series it has been too, with every event so far breaking its particular prize pool.

There were three more events completed earlier today and another that will require another days worth of action tomorrow. Take a brief look at the players that made the best money in the ones completed today.

Event #30 – $1,050 No Limit Holdem $1,000,000 Gtd

This was another of the more popular events during the 2013 WCOOP thus far and it again proved to be a huge success. It brought in 1,664 players to create a $1,644,000 prize pool that would be shared amongst the top 198 finishers. Despite many big names being involved it was eventually “mr.MaxRiper” from Ukraine that came out on top to claim the $246,921.63 winner’s payout.
