Bruno “great dant” Volkmann Earns Third Title in WCOOP 63-H: $10,300 PKO High Roller ($331,495)

Brazil’s Bruno “great dant” Volkmann won his third World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) title on Monday by taking down the WCOOP 63-H: $10,300 Progressive KO High Roller for $119,620 in prize money and $211,875 in bounties, adding up for a total score of $331,495. Volkmann secured the title after defeating Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph of Germany during heads-up play. For his runner-up finish, Rudolph earned a total of $203,683.

Volkmann already had two WCOOP victories to his name heading into the high roller. The Brazilian pro won the $1,050 NLHE [4-Max] in 2017 for $144,303, as well as the 2018 $2,100 NLHE [Deep Stacks] for $113,252. Rudolph was also searching for his third WCOOP title after taking down the WCOOP 24-H: $2,100 NLHE 6-Max for $71,404 last weekend.

The tournament attracted 123 entries and had a prize pool of $1.23 million, exceeding the guarantee of $1 million. PokerStars ambassadors Benjamin “bencb789” Rolle and Lex “L. Veldhuis” Veldhuis were among those in the Day 1 field but couldn’t make it to Day 2 as they busted in 23rd place and 26th place, respectively.
