The WCC Leaderboard Challenge is now an established and sought after contest at Playground Poker Club, giving away online seats, tickets, and full poker packages to players who play frequently AND perform well during the World Cup of Cards at Playground Poker Club.
Andrew Watt, winner of 2 WCC Trophies in the same day, is a man on a mission. His back-to-back wins allowed him to best William Blais at the finish line for the 1st week of the challenge, securing a $530 ticket in the process (1 of 4 weekly 1st prizes). In the first day of the 2nd week, Blais managed to pass him right back, now leading by a few points on the overall Leaderboard, which features a $10,000 Caribbean Poker Party package 1st prize.
Both players were sharing a table in Day 1A of the $1,500 + $150 CPPT Event, having a sort of metagame going on. It was brought to our attention that Andrew Watt had registered into the Mix Max when he was still in the CPPT. His idea was to let his Mix Max stack get blinded out, and hop over at the end of his CPPT Day 1. With the tournament director’s approval, after realizing how low he was getting in the nightly Event, he was also allowed to leave his CPPT table 20 minutes before the end in order to attend his Mix Max table, under the understanding that he could not return.
William Blais, his closest competitor in the Leaderboard Challenge and CPPT table mate, watched him go to the nightly Event, confused and bewildered. As these lines were written, Watt busted from the Mix Max, pocketing only a handful of points for that Event.
Now that’s dedication! Blais might be thinking that with the improved points formula that is more responsive to finishing position than last year, he can always rely on better positioning to stay ahead of Watt. There is also a whole group of players lurking not too far back that can leap ahead with a win at any moment!
