Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford Finally Wins His First WCOOP Title for $162,674 in WCOOP-33-H: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller]

Beresford vs Reeves

The number player in the world according to the online poker rankings Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford has won many titles but had never laid claim to a WCOOP title. He has now finally done it by winning the PokerStars WCOOP-33-H: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] for $162,674.

The tournament attracted 155 entries to create a prize pool of $775,000 with the lion-share going to Beresford as he defeated Luke “Bit2Easy” Reeves heads-up. Beresford came close in 2013 when he finished in fourth place and already won three SCOOP tournaments but at long last has taken down a WCOOP tournament. As this was a high roller, many of the poker elite came to take a shot at a title and the prize money that comes with it and only 14 players made it through to Day 2.

Joining the two Brits on the final table were “Boootsy”, Mike “SirWatts” Watson, Alexandru “steakaddict.” Papazian, Mirza “zazano” Muhovic, Sergei “Futti18” Koliakov, David “EzPaTuLa” Cabrera, and Ole “wizowizo” Schemion.
