Yevgeniy Timoshenko wins WCOOP Main Event
Wednesday, 23 September 2009
This year’s WCOOP has drawn to a close with Yevgeniy ‘Jovial Gent’ Timoshenko taking the showpiece main event. The Ukrainian born pro outlasted a mammoth field of 2,144 runners to take home the first prize of $1,715,200. The million-dollar payday was only his second highest cash this year though. The 21-year-old, who now lives in Washington State, won the season 7 World Poker Tour Championship in April for a massive score of $2,149,960.
