The Action of the Day
Right from the start, the eliminations came at an incredibly fast pace as the hopes of an even deeper run for all those that made it through to the money started to fall apart.
Shaun "shaundeeb" Deeb was seen riding around on a rollercoster all day until he crashed into "beastishngry's" nut flush, ending his tournament early in the money.
Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen was hoping to ride his heater through to the end of the night but it came to a cold end after his trip threes froze after Geilich found a third lady on turn making queens-full.
As virtual bodies kept dropping closer to the hard stop, there were two players who continued to tussle until one lost their chips. Francisco "Tomatee" Benitez, who started the final level fifth in chips, lost his wrestling match with Burns and became the final elimination of the evening.
The final day of WCOOP-73-M: $1,050 PLO [6-Max, Main Event] will continue with the remainder of level 32 at blinds of 500,000/100,000. All levels for the final day will last 20 minutes each and the tournament will play down to a champion as of 1.05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on Tuesday, September 21st, 2020.

WCOOP 2020 Winner Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane Offers Advice on Dealing with Wownswings after “turbulent but fun” 10 Years
Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane has been playing for over a decade, usually tearing up cash games and occasionally crossing over into the tournament arena to put a few notches on his record. Last week, he won event 26-H for $63,236k, claiming the first WCOOP win of his illustrious poker career.
Speaking of his win, Cochrane says, “It feels like it’s about time! I’ve played enough WCOOPs. I’m happy to win in 5 card PLO, as I really enjoy playing that game.”
He describes his 10+ year long poker journey as “pretty turbulent, but lots of fun.”
Cochrane was once involved in some of the most insane cash games of all time, including regular $100/$200 sessions against players such as Viktor “Isildur1” Blom. In one particularly memorable session, Cochrane came off $600k in profit against Blom. Another time, Cochrane won $150k in a single hand against Scott Palmer.
“I had quite a lot of gamble in my twenties – loved the high stakes and big swings. But I feel that urge less these days,” says Cochrane. “I still have a lot of love for the game, but I have a very different relationship with poker these days. It doesn’t consume me like it used to.”
