The second aday of the 2009Â World Championship of Online PokerÂ (WCOOP) brought some tough action to the tables. A total of 178 players came back to the virtual felt, all aiming for a share of the $1,715,200 first-place prize.
As the final table approached, two players were doing their best to abuse the bubble as much as possible. Daniel â€œdjk123â€ KellyÂ teamed up withÂ Â Yevgeniy â€œJovial Gentâ€ Timoshenkoto crush the short stacks and enter the final table as the two overwhelming chip leaders.
After some not so entertaining action, the final four players at the final table went out in rapid succession, starting with Supa4Real in eighth place.Â After moving up two spots, Mudvaynes saw himself out in seventh place for $268,000.Â LaFew was the next to go in sixth place when he called all in against Kelly.
Next one to hit the rail was Jamie â€œXastonâ€ Kaplan. Â All of this action happened within a span of just a few orbits.
Things hadnâ€™t been going Daniel Kellyâ€™s and he was eventually put away in fourth place. Kelly held pocket tens and was all in preflop, but Timoshenko woke up withÂ kings and sent the young Villanova student home with $643,200. Kelly was awarded Player of the Series honors which added a trip to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventures to his prize.
His comeback was short-lived, and reddeevil finally found himself on the outside looking in just a short while later, when his straight and flush draw went up against Timoshenkoâ€™s two pair. The flush came on the river, but it also improved Timoshenko to a full house, sending reddeevil out in third place, good for $933,712.
Heading into heads-up play, TimoshenkoÂ (pictured)Â held a more than a 3-1 chip lead over his opponent Udon Wannit. On the final hand, both players saw a flop of KÂ 8Â 6, and the money went in. Udon Wannit had 6Â 5, but he was in bad shape to Timoshenkoâ€™s KÂ 6Â for two pair. The turn and river came 3Â and 4, and Udon Wannit was eliminated, getting a payday of $1,286,400.
To top it off, Timoshenko decided to play in theÂ Monday $1KÂ on Full Tilt and simultaneously won that, as well, banking an additional $75,000.
