The win cements his place way atop the overall WCOOP leaderboard, ahead of fellow Russian ‘ImluckNuts’, with Finland’s Jussi ‘calvin7v’ Nevanlinna a distant 3rd… and well-known names such as Shaun Deeb and Phil Galfond trailing in the wake despite their own great showings.

4 Tobias ‘Senkel92’ Leknes 625
5 Shaun ‘shaundeeb’ Deeb 620
6 nilsef 540
7 Phil ‘MrSweets28’ Galfond 520
