€urop€an Caps WCOOP Super Tuesday, Wins More Than First Place
Finnish online poker player €urop€an knows how to make a deal.
The unidentified online pro took down WCOOP-35 $1,575 Super Tuesday Special for $297,450.
The original first-place payout? $292,450.
€urop€an achieved the feat by cutting a very smart deal three-handed. The three remaining players left an extra $36,450 for the winner and €urop€an went ahead and won that too.
€urop€an already has a Sunday Million victory and a SCOOP win so all that he’s missing for the so-called PokerStars Grand Slam is a TCOOP title.
Timex Falls Just Short of Final Table
As you might expect there were a number of celebrated online pros at the final table. Here’s a complete breakdown of the final table payout (*reflects three-way deal):
1. €urop€an -- $297,450.00*
2. XingsMaster -- $189,885.05*
3. reno8 -- $176,000.00*

In addition there were a number of big-name online pros who finished just short of the final table included Mike “Timex” McDonald (14th) and Sami “Lrslzk” Kelopuro (18th).
Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky, NigDawG and Mike “munchenHB” Telker also made the money.
There’s still plenty of time to get in on the 2016 WCOOP as the series runs until Sept. 26, culminating with a $10m-GTD $5,000 buy-in Main Event on Sept. 25.
