WCOOP News: aDrENalin710 wins a fourth title in a little over a weekThe door creaks open, like the beginning of Robert Smith’s Close To Me, but nothing comes through. Donald has nuked my thoughts. The screaming white noise of the inside of my skull is all that remains.

I wish I stayed asleep, today. 

I never thought this night could ever be this close to me. 

I wouldn’t mind paying a few quid to take the open top bus tour of the cranium of one Denis ‘aDrENalin710′ Strebkov. Now, there’s a man who doesn’t wish he stayed asleep and must believe that every night is close to him.

Coming into the 2018 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) on PokerStars, Dan ‘djk123’ Kelly was the top WCOOP wiz with five wins. Strebkov was one of six players with three titles to his name.

That was then.

This is now.

Yesterday, I waxed lyrical about Strebkov after the Russian won three titles in a single week. Today, I bring you news of an unprecedented fourth title.

Strebkov won the 136 runners, two-day, Event #21 (H) $2,100 Eight Game, collecting $70,720, after firing a single shot in one of the toughest events of the entire series.

The Russian online star has now won eight WCOOP titles, three more than Kelly and Shaun Deeb who tie second place.
