Loeliger Leads WCOOP Main Event as Veldhuis Stuns on TwitchTV

Linus LLinusLLove Loeliger leads the charge for the $1.5million top prize in the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event after day two, the Austrian-based Swiss crusher returning today with almost twice the chips of anyone else in the star-studded final 17 as they play down to a winner…

A frantic day of action also saw a remarkable feat of streaming from Lex ‘L.Veldhuis’ Veldhuis, the Pokerstars Team pro at one point hosting 32,839 viewers on his TwitchTV channel, ‘the second most viewed channel across the whole of the streaming platform’ according to his sponsor – but when he finally fell in 58th spot (for $28,632.35) it was a “tragic” end to his deep run…

With fellow PokerStars pro Liv Boeree hitting the rails just before him and ending PS hopes of a ‘home winner’, it would be Loeliger forcing the pace heading for the big paydays, but with the well-known trio of Simon ‘C.Darwin2’ Mattsson, Noah ‘Exclusive’ Boeken and Michael ‘mczhang’ Zhang the tournament is still wide open.

Top five chipcounts entering final day:

1 Linus ‘LLinusLLove’ Loeliger 98,371,192
2 wann2play 59,600,908
3 AceAceee 46,167,283
4 Simon ‘C. Darwin2’ Mattsson 36,533,625
5 Robert ‘PlayaPlz’ Lipkin 35,850,411
