LetMeWin3437 Triumphs in PACOOP Main Event For $46,319
“LetMeWin3437” emerged victoriously from the 2020 PokerStars Pennsylvania Championship Of Online Poker (PACOOP) Main Event earlier this week and walked away with $46,319.
Online poker is relatively new in Pennsylvania and PokerStars is one of the first sites in the Keystone State. The PACOOP was a series of 20 events that paid out more than $2 million. LetMeWin3437 got his hands on a large chunk of that prize money by winning two events.
Victory in the $100 No-Limit Hold’em PKO netted LetMeWin3437 almost $5,500. Being the last man standing in the $300 buy-in Main Event saw him net another $46,319.
Some 1,013 players bought into the Main Event and only 89 made it through to Day 2. Those 89 were in the money after the bubble burst during Day 1. A steady stream of eliminations saw the nine-handed final table reached quickly. The eventual champion started the final table in the envious position of chip leader.
Final Table Set; LetMeWin3437 Leads
Starting a final table as the big stack is a great spot to be in. LetMeWin3437 sat down with 34,483,227 chips, over 22 million more than anyone else.
“love2playpoker” was the first finalists eliminated. “ryan.lamb713” in-raised to 800,000 and called when love2playpoker three-bet all-in for 4,595,000. The initial raiser held ace-queen and was flipping against jacks. An ace on the flop was enough to sent love2playpoker to the showers.
Eighth-place went to “1BoomSwitch” who had half of his stack in the middle in the big blind. “staxthagawd” open-shoved for seven big blinds and 1BoomSwitch called all-in. It was Ks-Tc for staxthagawd against the lowly 4h-2c. staxthagawd flopped a ten and the final table lost another player.
“goodfundies” busted in seventh place at the hands of “Lirek154.” Lirek154 min-raised to 1,000,000 and both LetMeWin3437 and goodfundies called. The flop fell Td-9d-2d and goodfundies moved all-in for 4,600,000. Lirek154 jammed over the top and LetMeWin3437 folded. Lirek154 turned over Qs-Qc and was against Kh-Th. The ladies held and goodfundies headed to the exits.
The final four-figure prize of the evening went to “ChrundleTheGr8”, the sixth-place finisher. The action folded to him in the small blind and he fired in his last 10 big blinds with Kd-9d. LetMeWin3437 called in the big blind with Ad-Jd. A jack landed on the flop and it was enough to eliminate ChrundleTheGr8.
Everyone Locks Up Five-Figures
ryan.lamb713 crashed out in fifth and secured $12,022, the first five-figure prize of the Main Event. He called a preflop raise from LetMeWin3437 and then called down all three streets as the board ran Ks-8h-6c-2h-Qs. ryan.lamb713 showed As-Kd after calling a river shove, only for LetMeWin3437 turn over 8c-8s.
Four became three when “Charityy1” fell by the wayside. A short-stacked Lirek154 moved all-in with As-7h and Charityy1 called off their last six big blinds with Ad-6c. Lirek spiked a seven and avoided a plethora of outs on the turn and river to bust Charityy1.
Heads-up was set almost immediately after Charityy1’s demise. Lirek154’s Kd-9d couldn’t beat the As-Qc of staxthagawd with the chips going in on an Ac-6d-5d flop.
LetMeWin3437 held a 74,434,898 to 26,865,102 chip advantage over staxthagawd. It didn’t take long to press home that advantage.
The final hand took place during the 400,000/800,000 level. LetMeWin3437 opened to 1,600,000 with Ah-7s and staxthagawd three-bet to 5,600,000 with 5c-3c. LetmeWin3437 pushed all-in and staxthagawd called off his last 15,000,000. The board ran 9s-8h-4s-8s-2s and LetMeWin3437 got his hands on all 101,300,000 chips!
