At 6:30 p.m. GMT, the final four players in the 2020 GGPoker WSOPC #13: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em will return for the semi-finals followed by the final straight after to get to a champion who will claim $348,250 for their bankroll.
On Day 1, the $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool attracted 94 entrants with eight players cashing.
The first player in the semi-final is a familiar one as he also holds one of the biggest and most feared reputations in the online MTT world. Niklas Astedt probably is the biggest winner in the MTT fields with over $21,000,000 in cashes.
Battling Astedt today will be Cooper Li from Malaysia who seems to be relatively unknown with his name not bringing up any poker results and when looking on GGPoker, he has collected $5,768 in tournament winnings. Looking at the tournament lobby, his full name now seems to be Cooper Li Garcia Santos which doesn't yield much more information either.
In the other semi-final, Mirza Muhovic can be found who was interviewed by PokerNews back in 2014 about his success in the cash game pool but seems to have converted to tournaments over the past months as his name has popped up in our tournament recaps before.
He will be facing Ian Modder who has already secured his biggest cash in the WSOP tournaments or any live poker tournaments according to The Hendon Mob. But according to PokerCraft Modder has almost $500,000 in cashes on GGPoker alone so he will be more than familiar with the later stages of tournament play.
