WCOOP Update: Bungakat dominates, Robinson leads Main Event, Leknes makes it four

Just two more days of the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) 2023 remain and we’ve got a lot to shout about before it all wraps up.

Two of BBZ Poker’s Bundle creators have picked up titles over the past few days, plus one of our students is chip leading the $109 Main Event with just 156 players remaining!

Let’s get you caught up.


Our man Jargo “bungakat” Alaväli has been on fire the past few days.

Jargo “bungakat” Alaväli

The BBZ Poker coach and creator of the Bungakat Final Table Bundle has won three huge events, starting with his maiden WCOOP title.

Alaväli took down a $320 NLHE event on Sunday (October 1) for $41,793, besting an 821-entry field and defeating a tough heads-up opponent in the experienced Sami “Lrslzk” Kelopuro.

And once those floodgates were opened, Alaväli hasn’t stopped.

He then took down a WCOOP edition of the $109 Fenomeno for $28,903 on the same evening, topping 1,919 entries.

And then on Monday (October 2) he beat 1,673 entries to win a WCOOP edition of the Big $109 for $24,134!

An incredible run.
