The 2020 PokerStars Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker (PACOOP) finally came to a close and one of the big winners from the festival was “LetMeWin3437“, who took down the $300 buy-in Main Event. He outclassed a field of 1,013 entries to walk away with $46,319.13 in first-place prize.
As players battled it out to make it to the final table, “LetMeWin3437” was among the short stack but he managed to turn things around when he triumphed in a massive three-way all-in, giving him the lead through to the final table. The first three players to be eliminated were “love2playpoker” took 9th place for $3,120.35, “1Boomswitch” took 8th place for $4,371.65), and “goodfundies” took 7th place for $6,124.80.
During six-handed play, “LetMeWin3437” started to become more aggressive.

All throughout “LetMeWin3437” never relinquished his position, easily conquering heads-up play against “staxhagawd” who took home $33,060.73 for his runner-up finish.
