WCOOP 2012 - Russian FPP Qualifier Maratik Wins Main Event

Online Poker | estimated reading time
2012. September 25.
The Russian player 'Maratik' won the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) Main Event. He didn't have an extraordinary success at a major tournament so far.
On the 23rd day of the WCOOP series two tournaments ended, the $215 NLHE and the $5,200 NLHE Main Event. The $215 event ended with the victory of a Canadian player, 'jakz101', who took home $281,524 without a deal while the Main Event was won by a freeroll qualifier, Maratik.

The top 255 places paid in the tournament, the first prize was set to be $1,612,843.75. The Russian player who usually plays SNGs and plays at lower stakes won $1,000,907, which is clearly a life-changing amount of money compared to Maratik's $11,000 total profit at SNG tables.

Maratik's results

As the final 6 decided to strike a deal, the 4th place finisher Mike 'munchenHB' Telker won almost as much money as the victorious Maratik.
