wcoop tournamentAfter two days of play, and with around $4 million in prize-money still to be decided, the final five players in the 2011 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) were in the dealing mood. The final table deal saw eventual winner, Thomas ‘Kallllle’ Pedersen, lock-up the lion’s share of the remaining prize-pool, pocketing $1.1 million –he would then pick-up the final $100k the five players set aside for the winner of the tournament as well.

Pedersen held a monster chip-lead, more than double the other four players combined, and despite being the most accomplished player still in the hunt, Mike “goleafsgoeh” Leah received the least amount based on the equity chop –Leah would go on to finish in third place. Here is a look at the specifics of the deal that was struck during 5-handed play:

* Thomas ‘Kallllle’ Pedersen: 18,829,721 chips= $1,160,018.50
