The action is getting bigger as we head towards Main Event weekend and the biggest prize so far has just been claimed. 

High stakes cash regular Linus 'LLinusLLove' Loeliger defeated a field of 104 players to take down the $25,000 No Limit event, the joint biggest buy-in event of the series, for $587,747.32 at a final table that included pleno1.

Since we last wrote about him, aDrENalin710 took down another WCOOP event, taking his historic total to five this year alone. He leads the High leaderboard and the overall leaderboard (and is crushing our Fantasy League). 

The player with the most cashes right now is 'Imlucknuts' who has a staggering 39 cashes from 116 events, he also leads the Medium leaderboard. 

But the real stories begin now, as the Main Event and the much coveted $10,300 8-game events begin this weekend. Expect to see plenty of big names and jaw dropping prizes from here on out.  

Heads-up live on Twitch

Charlie Carrel has been making waves on Twitch and YouTube in the short time he has been there and last night he got heads-up in the $5,200 WCOOP PKO event live on stream:

Fintan vs Spraggy for $5,000

The bantering PokerStars best friends have something fun for stream viewers to see out the end of WCOOP, a $5,000 freeroll.

One of them gets to host a $5k freeroll for their followers, but only for the fans of their video diaries. The streamer who gets the most engagements for their video diaries gets to host the freeroll. 

To have a shot at entering the freeroll, you have to make a $10 deposit to BetStars use either the code Spraggy Diary or Fintan Diary. If you pick the right deposit code you'll get an invite to the freeroll.

There is no easy way to say this, but you are pretty screwed if you did not pick 'aDrENalin710' in our WCOOP Fantasy League. In case you have been living under a rock, he has been beasting the series and has so far won five titles events and made three further final tables, not to mention racked up 1,000 leader board points.

His nearest rival in the main WCOOP player of the year race is Imlucknuts who has 780 points and then shaundeeb who currently has 690, both of whom are in our Fantasy League so there is a slim chance. However, the ultimate dream team right now is aDrENalin710, Imlucknuts and JeffGross, so if your team looks remotely like that, you are probably getting a prize. 

You can view the standings so far below, we will be updating them regularly but please note the leaderboard points do not get updated right away.

Fold of WCOOP so far?

While always a bit of a comedy figure on stream, you have to really give props to Ben Spragg for this fold, which may be the best one caught on stream this World Championship of Online Poker.
