• Steven “SvZff” van Zadelhoff wins the WCOOP 2017 the Main Event
The Championship ended last night when Dutch player Steven “SvZff” van Zadelhoff (playing out of Malta) won the WCOOP Main Event which, after a deal free final table which he had begun as chip leader, was worth more than $1.62 million. Martin Harris watched it through to the finish and posted this report.
There was a total of 2,183 entries to the Main Event (1,804 uniques plus 379 re-entries), making for a $10,915,000 prize pool. That paid the top 278 places.
Van Zedelhoff started the final table with roughly a third of the chips in play and never really looked like giving up his advantage. Joshuah333 of Canada got closest, finishing second for $1,173,712.
