Niklas Lena900 Astedt: Life is unpredictable, with few certainties like whispers in the wind. However, in high-stakes poker, Niklas “Lena900” Astedt’s unbreakable rule will never change. The PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) attracts the most prominent poker stars, but none shine as brilliantly as Astedt.
Only 81 brave players entered the $5,200 NLHE Turbo Progressive Knockout Sunday Cooldown High Roller at WCOOP 38-H. Astedt ascended the peak in under four hours and earned $113,569, the grand prize.
The nine lucky final table players shared the major prize in this small group. Alexandros “Pnwndidi” Theologis, the “bubble boy,” earned $8,125 before quitting. After that, poker history forgot him.
The final play began with Samuel “€urop€an” Vousden’s farewell song. A respectable $6,491 was his take, but no bounty. David “MissOracle” Yan, Pantoja “RO” of Brazil, and brave Bulgarian Ognyan “cocojamb0” Dimov signed the scroll of fallen winners. After Dimov’s departure, just five players competed for fame and a six-figure prize.
Only three players remained with Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph’s exit and Benjamin “bencb789” Rolle’s gracious exit. The ultimate meeting was about to occur as Pedro “pvigar” Garagnani’s daring trip ended abruptly.
Astedt and Yuri “theNERDguy” Dzivielevski, two of the finest online poker players, fought for $47,788 from the main pool. Due to their desire to eliminate people fast, end bounties got large. Dzivielevski’s bravery failed at the last line. His consolation prize was $71,381, while Astedt stole the crown with $113,569 and became the WCOOP champion for the sixth time.
“starwins:)” from Denmark defeated 84 world-class poker players to win the WCOOP 35-H: $10,300 NLHE Progressive KO High Roller. They won $228,540, including $88,931 in a winner’s share and $139,609 in a reward bounty. They won the trophies and most of the $840,000 prize pool, while Alexandros “Pwndidi” Theologis finished second and out of the spotlight.
Talal “raidalot” Shakerchi, Ilya “Leqenden” Anatsky, Roman “RomeOpro” Romanovsky, and Rodrigo “SELOUAN1991” Selouan reached the final table but lost.
Amazing things have happened in the first few minutes of the 2023 WCOOP. Connor “blanconegro” Drinan and Roman “Gogac sniper” Hrabec won two titles in recent days. “thelpoker” from Finland won $180,000 as the 6-Max NLHE World Champion, and “Gambler4444” Nolte will be remembered as the 2023 PLO8 World Champion.
The 2023 PokerStars WCOOP will run till October 4, allowing everybody who wants to win on the most extensive online poker platform a stage with no restrictions. Everyone in poker is excited for the next chapter of this incredible journey.
