A French nurse living in Prague has beaten over 30,000 entrants to win two Mini-World Championships of Online Poker (WCOOP) events simultaneously; Andrey ‘Kroko-dill’ Zaichenko picks up his second WCOOP career win, and Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez tops the leaderboard.

nurse-wins-two-mini-wcoop-events-simultaneouslyA French nurse living in Prague, Czech Republic has won two Mini-World Championships of Online Poker (WCOOP) titles simultaneously, after wading through 30,000+ entrants.

At 11 am Sep 11, Iwan ‘Ethanolol’ Roberts, 34, entered Event #27: $2.20 No-Limit Hold’em {Deep Payouts}. At 12:30 pm he also entered Event #28: $11.00 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em 8-Max.

He won them both.

And get this.

He beat 18,856 entrants in the first event for $3,509.75, and 11,982 entrants in the second event for $15,604.21. That’s over $19k profit for an investment of less than $15.

The cinema buff, who began life as a cash game player before losing his $7,000 bankroll playing in a $1,000 cash game, while drunk, told PokerStars that he ‘ran like Jesus,” during the heater of his lifetime.

I bet he did.

Team PokerStars Pro, Jason Somerville, called Roberts’s achievement Freaking Boss.

PokerStars liked the story so much they gave him a free seat into the $5,000 buy-in $10m Guaranteed WCOOP Main Event.

Andrey ‘Kroko-dill’ Zaichenko Wins Second WCOOP Title

Andrey ‘Kroko-dill’ Zaichenko has won his second WCOOP title after taking down Event #39: $1,050 Fixed-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship.

Zaichenko’s first WCOOP title came six years ago when he took down another PLO Hi-Lo title.
