Roothlus, Srinivasan Lock Down Titles as WCOOP Main Event Nears
As the 2014 WCOOP barrels to a big finish this Sunday two more notable names have locked down impressive titles.
Adam "Roothlus" Levy, well known for his appearances on the ESPN WSOP broadcast and a former pro for Ultimate Bet, earned his second career COOP title with a win in Event 49, $320 Mixed NL Hold'em/PL Omaha.
He topped a 967-player field to earn $41,572 and, importantly, the WCOOP bracelet.
Another huge name in the online poker community, Shyam "G's Zee" Srinivasan, also earned some WCOOP gold for his wrist over the past couple of days with a big win in Event #52, $215 No-Limit Hold'em.
Also known online as s_dot111, the Toronto-based Srinivasan is one of the best MTTers of all time with over $7m in earnings split almost equally between PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker.
With a list of big online cashes a mile long Srinivisan finally put his stamp on the WCOOP with his first title. He needed a huge comeback to do it, coming into the final table 8th in chips before storming back to victory.
Srinivasan claimed $97,954 for the win. Complete results and payouts from the final tables of Events 49 and 52:
