$25,000 High Roller added to WCOOP schedule

We bring you the latest from the World Championship, Lex entering his biggest ever online MTT and the results from the Poker Masters.

$25,000 WCOOP event added

The World Championship of Poker is almost over, but because the high stakes community are still near their computers, PokerStars have added three High Roller events that start tomorrow. 

WCOOP 62 will have a low event for $215 with a $500,000 guarantee, a medium event for $2,100 with a $1 million guarantee and a high event for  $25,000 with a $1.5 million guarantee - all starting at 19:00 CET tomorrow. 

To celebrate 6,000 subscribers on his Twitch stream, Lex Veldhuis (who is still in the Main Event) announced live he would be playing and streaming the event, which he admits he is an underdog in:

Lex will be hoping that $25,000 event will be a bit like this.....

Ali Imsirovic wins the Purple Jacket

Make a note of the name Ali Imsirovic, you may not know it yet (outside of America) but this 23-year-old looks set to take the Super High Roller scene by storm after winning back-to-back events at the Poker Masters to win the coveted Purple Jacket. 

David Peters took down the $100,000 Main Event for $1,150,000 but an 8th place finish, followed by a win in the $25,000 event for $462,000 and in the $50,000 event for $799,000 was enough to give the young American the overall title. 

Peters did cash for more money ($1,343,200 to Imsirovic's $1,288,600) but lost out on poker's version of the Green Jacket by 10 points. 

No holds barred from Yong

Finally, Dusk Till Dawn owner, partypoker Live mogul and high stakes player Rob Yong promised Joe Ingram a no holds barred podcast last week, and that is exactly what he gave, no questions were off limits:
