2010 WCoOP: Triple Stud and Knockout bust guarantees

2010 WCoOP: Triple Stud and Knockout bust guarantees

Thursday, 9 September 2010

PokerStars have been once again hosting a great World Championship of Online Poker. Nowhere was this more evident than on the Triple Stud tables of Event #8. The game of Triple Stud (Stud 8, Razz, Stud) or ‘The Back End of HORSE’ was created on PokerStars just a few weeks ago.

However, that didn’t stop 788 players entering the tournament to bust the $100,000 guarantee. Team PokerStars pros Barry Greenstein and Daniel Negreanu wound up at the same table which quickly drew in the railbirds and a hearty discussion about the Poker Hall of Fame nominations. Eventually the tournament was won by Glucksi123 who took home $29,550 for the win.

Meanwhile, Event #10 saw nilsef knock out the competition to claim a victory in the $265 PLO Knockout tournament with $50 going to each player who eliminated another. Almost 1,500 players registered to create a main prize pool just shy of $200,000. Team PokerStars pro Jason Mercier got his fair share of $50s all the way to the final table where he eventually finished in fifth for $14,650. The victor took home over $50,000.
