September 25, 2023
David Kaye PokerStars

The list of players winning multiple titles during the 2023 PokerStars National Championship of Online Poker (NACOOP) series is piling up, and one of those individuals is now PokerStars ambassador David Kaye.

All the action took place across the PokerStars US platforms in Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Kaye wasn't the only player to win a second title on Sunday's Day 10 session. In the USCOOP (PokerStars MI/NJ), "Stonniepokes" won two tournaments on the same day.

The NACOOP series continues as PokerStars prepares to relaunch the North American Poker Tour in Las Vegas in November.

Players in the United States are joined by Ontario for a share of some big guarantees – as well as a Vegas Gold Pass, which will send players to the NAPT in Las Vegas before three days at the Oracle Red Bull Racing Fan Experience during the Las Vegas Grand Prix in November.

The full package is worth $20,030, and it includes:

  • Seat in the $5,300 NAPT Las Vegas High Roller (November 10-12)
  • 3-day pass for two (November 16-18) for Oracle Red Bull Racing Fan Experience in Las
  • 9 nights hotel accommodation for two (November 10-19) at Resorts World Las Vegas,
    including taxes and resort fees.
  • $4,000 towards flights and expenses.

PokerStars Ambassador Ships Another One

Live reported by PokerNews, Event #47: $200 Sunday Special Championship, a USCOOP no-limit hold'em tournament with 965 entries in Michigan and New Jersey, had quite a thrilling finish. Kaye, who held a 3-1 chip advantage in heads-up play against "neverhaveit22," raised on the button with Ax10x.

The PokerStars ambassador's opponent then moved all in with Jx10x and was called by a superior hand. But that all changed when the flop came out Jx8x9x, giving "neverhaveit22" top pair. Kaye wasn't drawing dead as his ace was still live, and he could chop with a straight on the turn or river.

The Kx on the turn changed things a bit as it put Kaye in position to win the hand outright on a straight if a Qx appeared on the river, which it did.

Kaye received $29,343 for first place, while the runner-up was paid $20,916 in one of the biggest tournaments thus far in the NACOOP. The champion claimed his second title of the series. His first came on Day 4 in Event #20: $250 Battle Royale Championship for $5,510.
