There’s very little that Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth has not accomplished in his online poker career. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver has amassed more than $17.5 million in online earnings and won nearly every title out there. Except one.

Heading into the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, the Hungarian poker pro had never won a WCOOP title. That ended on Thursday night as Nemeth beat William ‘hellzito’ Arruda heads-up to win Event #15 High ($530 NLHE w/rebuys) for $79,655.48 and that first WCOOP title.

Russian crusher Arsenii ‘josef_shvejk’ Karmatckii beat out 451 other entries in Event #13 High ($1,050 NLHE Midweek Freeze) to win his second career WCOOP title. Just 24 hours after winning his second WCOOP title, Ludovic Geilich finished two spots short of another one.

Another Russian also earned a WCOOP title on Thursday. ‘Bagrovui’ took down Event #14 High ($1,050 PLO Six Max) for a $66,449.74 score and the first WCOOP title of their career.

Jordi ‘prot0′ Urlings broke through and won his first career WCOOP title by beating 118 other entries in Event #17 High ($1,050 6+ Hold’em) to earn $26,752.48. Former #1 and current #9-ranked Patrick Leonard took home the bronze medal and $15,736.09.

British grinder ‘brandon0903’ came out on top of the 194-entry field in Event #18 High ($2,100 NLHE) to win $80,642.40. Georgios ‘Geokarak’ Karakousis finished as the runner-up while the #14-ranked online poker player in the world Jerry ‘Perrymejsen’ Ödeen came in third place.

Other Thursday winners included ‘Tayguera’ (Event #13 Medium), ‘ZNOXYU’ (Event #13 Low), ‘The_Truht’ (Event #14 Medium), ‘RrrrStyle’ (Event #14 Low), ‘MathCamillo1’ (Event #15 Medium), ‘Janiz_x97’ (Event #15 Low), ‘nokeee’ (Event #17 Medium), ‘nikolakiev123’ (Event #17 Low), ‘MarcGregor89’ (Event #18 Medium), and ‘humpster76’ (Event #18 Low).
