Jeff Gross Picks Up a Sweet WCOOP Birthday Present

Pokerstars team pro Jeff Gross was looking for a birthday to remember yesterday, streaming his deep WCOOP run to almost 9000 of his fans and walking off with a very decent 9th spot for $14,337, certainly enough for the Ann Arbor man to buy himself a present to celebrate turning 32 years old!

Playing one of the biggest online festivals of the year in your bathrobe is something most poker players dream of as a lifestyle, and even though he was eventually knocked out after losing a flip to Belarus crusher Mikita "fish2013" Badziakouski, Jeff and co. were more than pleased with the run…

Badziakouski himself finished third for $91,160.81- not a patch on his Super High Roller win at the recent Barcelona EPT worth €1.65million, although still a healthy chunk of money – but the biggest scoop of the day went to ‘SkaiWalkurr’.

Taking down the $10k High Roller, the UK player walked off with $367,000 from the $1.85million prizepool, leaving ‘T 54 T 97s’ in 2nd and Luke ‘Bit2Easy’ Reeves to pick up 3rd…

Four days into the 185-tournament day pokerfest, the leaderboard is already shaping up nicely – this week’s double WCOOP winner ‘nilsef’ sitting in 3rd – the nationalities of the top 5 not really a big surprise to fans of the online game!
