The World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) is currently underway and on September 6 Jorryt ‘TheCleaner11’ van Hoof took down the $25,000 PLO High Roller for an impressive sum of $465,559.

The event attracted 54 entries and generated a prize pool of $1,324,350. With only the top six places receiving payouts, van Hoof competed against the likes of ‘WRUUUUM’, Sami ‘LrsLzk’ Kelopuro and Joao ‘IneedMassari’ Simao on the final table.

Leon Tsoukernik Wins partypoker PowerFest SHR For $208K

Part of the excitement generated in the 2018 partypoker Powerfest is owing to the competitively charged environment of the Super High Roller tournaments that feature in the online series’ roster. Another SHR tournament got in the books, when live cash game specialist and owner of King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Leon Tsoukernik took down the partypoker Powerfest Event #16: Super High Roller $1M GTD Championship Event.

Proving his online gaming skills in the star-studded field of 204 entrants, Tsoukernik scooped the title and added a hefty payday of almost $208,000 to his online earnings. It was only the second-ever online tournament for the Russia-born Czech. “I’m so proud,” Tsoukernik said, after playing a “very tough 11 hours.”

Tsoukernik played the tournament from Germany, since partypoker is not yet available in the Czech Republic. Known for his loose aggressive style in live cash games and tournaments, Tsoukernik recently won the Velden ‘Em SHR title in Austria in the €25k buy-in event. He fired seven bullets to make his way through the field and eventually wound up on the final table where he outlasted his opponents and won the first-place purse worth €370,000.

The event also saw partypoker ambassador Patrick ‘plenopads’ Leonard making a deep run with him taking 11th place for $18,156.

At the final table in the Powerfest Super High Roller, Tsoukernik fended off big online challengers including ‘mczhand’ and ‘Chealsea72’. He confronted ‘helicopterben82’ in the heads-up play and defeated him to win the top prize.
