*Antonio Esfandiari‘s success continued as he took down the second event of the WSOPE. The € 1000 entry fee for the event was only 1/1000 of what he paid to enter the Big One over the summer. Antonio outlasted a field of 626 players to win his third bracelet and managed to take the lead in the WSOP Player of the Year race.
*In other tournament news, PokerStars player “maratik” took down the Main Event of the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). A small stakes grinder, maratik won entry to the Main Event through an FPP satelite. Outlasting 1825 players, maratik agreed to a deal at the final table (after stating “I wont million”) which earned him over $900,000. By being the last man standing he won another $100,000 and the championship title and brought joy to all those who were rooting for the underdog to win.
