Rui Ferreira Triumphs in the Fourth 2022 WCOOP Tournament

The 6 Major Events of the PokerStars World Championship 2022 of Online Poker (WCOOP), which begins on Sept 25, mark the culmination of the season. More than 20 WCOOP winners have been recognized in the past few days, notably Juan Pardo, who won more than $285,000, and the amazing Rui Ferreira, who won his 4th major title.

Adam Crawford of Canada also won the World Championship, taking home the No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw crown.

Pardo emerged victorious in NLHE Thursday Thrill High Roller 80-H: $10,300, which attracted 93 players competing for a share of the $930,000 prize pool.

Even though everyone can tell from the finals table’s impressive lineup, the tournament was filled with several of the industry’s most prominent names.

The initial of the nine competitors to be eliminated was Sami Kelopuro. Interestingly, Kelopuro’s bankroll of $13,756 did not include any bounties. Ole Schemion ended in the 7th position and earned $21,159, while Belarusian grinder Dmitry Yurasov earned $36,608 for his 6th place performance. SerVlaMin earned $37,321 for their 8th-place result.

Although Kyrgyzstan may not come to mind when you think of poker, “LuckPROF” made their nation famous with an astounding 5th-place finish of $79,645. Rui Ferreira, the winner of the 2022 WCOOP, finished in 4th position for $86,100, followed by Eelis Parssinen’s disastrous finish in 3rd spot for $63,575.

After Parssinen’s departure, Niklas “Lena900” Astedt, a Swedish superstar, faced Pardo head-to-head. Even though both contestants secured $96,951 from the top prize money, the winnings were divided into six figures. Astedt was left to suck his losses with $111,951 in his possession while Pardo collected the hefty bounty of $188,281 for a grand prize of $285,232. The $1,050 Championship of NL 2-7 Single Draw event had a small field of 64 PokerStars competitors, and Adam Crawford won it. His payment? The title of the global champion and $20,197 in cash.

As per the Poker news, Sam Grafton of Team PokerStars dropped two spots before the cash, while Thomas Muehloecker burst the cash balloon when his event finished in eighth place.

As the 7th-place winner, Benny Glaser’s stay at the final table was brief. After Rui Ferreira, who was rather ludicrous, exited in 4th position, Hungary’s “RERERASIERRR” was the following competitor to leave the competition. James Whittet busted out in fourth, and “serkku21” of Finland dusted off their stack to finish 3rd, earning $9,486, the last 4-figure payday of the tournament.

Crawford and “jp_legacy” from Japan competed against each other for the championship; any player would have been a deserving global champion. Crawford won the night, and he now has the title of World Champion in NL 2-7 Single Draw for at least the next twelve months.
