WCC Event Leaderboard: Congrats to Charles La Boissonnière
Event 24 in the World Cup of Cards was the $1,500 + $150 NL Hold’em CPPT World Cup of Cards and was a 3-day tournament with 2 Day 1s. There were a total of 359 entries in the event which built up a total prize pool of $522,345.00. The winner was Brady Hinnegan, who defeated Tomas Larivee Magni heads up for the win.

The new level was only about 10 minutes old when the final hand was upon the players, though the hand started innocently enough. Tomas had lost a few more chips than he had on the last break and was starting to be quite short-stacked when he limped and Brady checked behind to see a flop.


It was an action flop, but the action went check-check and the dealer laid out the turn . Brady bet 200K and Tomas made the call. The river was an action card for Tomas – the . Brady opened to 300K and Tomas chose to go all in – only to meet with a snap call from Brady, who instantly flipped over his for the flopped straight. Tomas was disappointed that his rivered 2nd pair – he held – was no good but he took it like the pro he is and congratulated Brady on the victory. Brady won $110,000 for his win!
