WCOOP 2012 main event

The WCOOP 2012 main event took place this sunday and it has quite an interesting story. The winner is micro stakes russian 1$ 180man sng regular who qualified for this event by playing a 100FPP(1.6$) sattelite in order to receive the 5200$ entry into the main event. In my opinion this is an amazing achievement and I hope it will generate a mini Moneymaker effect to the online poker.

"After several levels of FPP qualifiers, 25 hours of deep stacked, high velocity play and close to 60 minutes of six-handed deal negotiations, a low stakes Russian grinder has won the WCOOP Main Event pocketing a life-changing $1,000,907.26. There's the money, yes, but there's so much more for our new WCOOP champion "maratik"; there's the bracelet and the glory."

 Here are the results of the WCOOP Event #65 ($5,200 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event) (*reflects six-way deal):
1st: maratik (Russia) -- $1,000,907.26*
2nd: Ryan "TheCart3r" Carter (Canada) -- $662,516.39*
3rd: Jossel2008 (Ireland) -- $814,602.12*
4th: Mike "munchenHB" Telker (Cyprus) -- $1,000.584.34*
5th: sly caveat (Portugal) -- $601,884.93*
6th: FOO-92 (Germany) -- $502,992.46*
7th: Kakalala (Denmark) -- $182,500.00
8th: Phil "takechip" D'Auteuil (Canada) -- $136,875
9th: mitdadu (Russia) -- $91,250.00

 I have played myself in 2 x 215$ WCOOP events this year but did not cash in any... Maybe next year I will have more succes... Here is the final table highlights from the WCOOP main event, and from 2 over tournaments from the WCOOP witch I really enjoyed watching:
