WCOOP thrills with PLO, Mixed Hold'em events

Katja Thater picked up some cash in the Six-Max Mixed Hold'em event.

The WCOOP continues to roll right along on PokerStars this week, with two more winners being crowned yesterday.

Event 11

If there is a single variant of poker that owes its popularity to the Internet, Pot-Limit Victor Ramdin.

It was German PokerStars pro Katja Thater, however, who made the biggest splash in the event.

Thater, the 2007 WSOP Razz champ, cracked the top 10 halfway through the tournament and even held the chip lead at one point after the money bubble had been broken. A few bumps in the road with pocket sevens took their toll on her stack, however, and she eventually finished in 96th place for $942.98.

At 6:55 a.m. EDT the final table was set, almost an hour after the field had been whittled to the last two tables. When just three players remained there was talk of a deal, but Jordan "Randers" Morgan - despite being the shortest stack - put the discussion to a quick end by demanding more money than his chip equity was worth.

Less than 10 minutes later Randers had eliminated MUHoosh33, and he and Aaron "011180" Kanter had struck a deal to leave $6,000 and the bracelet on the table. Just over a half-hour later, Randers would triumph with A-6 against 011180's A-5 on the final hand to seal the victory.
