LlinusLlove Takes Down Biggest WCOOP Score of the Series

The 8-max High Roller for the big boys and girls on PokerStars saw 104 entries, producing a $2,550,600 prizepool and attracting some of the biggest stars of the game, Loeliger finding Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang, Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen and Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard among the high-profile runners…

…and although Leonard ‘spun it up’ with a decent effort, he couldn’t quite break the $100k barrier…

‘LlinusLlove’ was still an anonymous assassin just over a year ago, all that anyone really knew was that he was a 22-year old Swiss pro who had moved to Vienna via Malta, but when his 2+2 role of a money middleman was leaked, so was his identity – Linus Loeliger – but it certainly hasn’t affected his game.

Denmark’s Henrik ‘hhecklen’ Hecklen was the last man standing between Loeliger and the biggest prize yet in this year’s WCOOP, but eventually had to accept the otherwise phenomenal $451,251.38 payout that came with second – an amount bigger than his largest ever live cash.
