GCOOP Day 3 delivered, with some great matchups and intense games. There was plenty of excellent (and not-so-great) play rewarded. This was an excellent opportunity for players to capture much-needed “Road to Vegas” Leaderboard points and build on their journey to join #TeamGrosvenor this Summer.
Heads Up has always been my personal favourite poker form of poker. No place to hide, no hiding behind tight ranges; a place where good strategy, aggression and a proper understanding of exploiting your opponent’s tendencies, hand ranges and aggression pays dividends.
Frankly, #HeadsUp isn’t a well practiced game for me, so with little experience, I’m pleased to have secured a few extra points on the Pro leaderboard, but disappointed as I narrowly missed out on cashing in the high #GCOOP event tonight & had bad beat in the Lo. @GrosvenorPoker pic.twitter.com/yBqFbmXpTb

Both events kicked off simultaneously, with 114 players competing in the High Event, with “Eclipse101” bossing the event and taking the lion’s share with a £950 payday. Runner up “BigLeague” also scored well, pocketing £575 for his sterling effort.
In the low event, 167 players ponied up £5 to create a paid prizepool of £835, far less than the £2,000 guaranteed. The eventual winner was “mcflurryoreo”, beating “Wallace1989” headsup to collect £540.
Road To Vegas Leaderboard
3 days into the second ever Grosvenor Championship of Online Poker, the leaderboard is still young although some players have built a very solid foundation on which to build further points. As is stands, ‘Eclipse101’, ‘mcflurryoreo’ and ‘zrGrizz’ will be joining #TeamGrosvenor for a week in Vegas and at shot at the $1,500 Millionaire Maker. However, there are plenty more events to come, including the double points Main Events on Sunday so everyone has a chance at the top 3 spots!
Tonight’s GCOOP Events
Tonight’s events are Deepstack Turbos, with the High event at 7pm (£5k GTD…likely overlay, you heard it here first) and the Low event (£1k GTD- check if you have a free ticket in your account…) at 8pm.
