1 month ago

The online portion of the 2022 Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) World Championship Of Amateur Poker (WCOAP) is now in full swing, and the $75,000 guaranteed Championship event is just around the corner. Three more partypoker players have become 2022 WCOAP champions this week, keep reading to discover who they are.

WCOAP #03 6-Max Final Table Results

The third event of the series was a six-handed no-limit hold’em affair that saw 352 players flock to the partypoker tables. Those 352 players locked horns in an attempt to get their hands on some of the $25,000 prize pool.

By the time the seven-handed final table was set, the least anyone would take home was $611. This was the prize awarded to Leonardo Azevedo of Brazil, the first finalist to bow out.

Petras Gorodincenko ($769) and Joao De Medeiros ($968) were the next players to find themselves void of chips. De Medeiros was the last of the finalists not to turn their $55 buy-in into a four-figure score.

Michael Skenicka, a Czech player who our recent €0.01 to €11,000 winner rates highly, finished in fourth for $1,375 before Marcus Miller lost their stack and had to make do with the $2,033 third-place prize.

Heads-up saw Dirk Wiele of Germany take on the United Kingdom’s Alex Montgomery. The final two players did not strike a deal despite a 25 buy-in difference in prize money. This meant Wiele banked $4,131 when he came out on top of the one-on-one battle, leaving Montgomery to collect the $2,893 consolation prize.

1 Dirk Wiele Germany $4,131
2 Alex Montgomery United Kingdom $2,893

WCOAP #04 FLHE Final Table Results

It is not often you see fixed-limit hold’em tournaments in the modern poker world, but WCOAP is all-encompassing. The event saw 74 players buy in and create a $3,700 prize pool.

The lion’s share of that pot went to the United Kingdom’s Simon Brooke, who got his hands on $927 after he defeated fellow Brit Robert Hallworth heads-up. Six of the nine finalists hailed from the UK, so it was odds on one of them was going to come away with the top prize in tow.

Place Player Country Prize
1 Simon Brooke United Kingdom $927
2 Robert Hallworth United Kingdom $609
3 Craig Daye United Kingdom $428
4 Lucas Martins Morais Brazil $314

A field of 154 players entered the Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event, a fun, and exciting split-pot tournament. Those 154 players were all outlasted by Hungarian Marton Szederkenyi, who locked in a $1,635 prize with bounties included.

Szederkenyi defeated Per Ola Haraldsson heads-up to capture the largest slice of the $7,700 prize pool. Shout out to Simon Brooke who finished sixth in this tournament for $255 shortly after taking down the fixed limit hold’em event.
