It was just eight days ago that Shaun Deeb won the seventh PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title of his very storied career. On Sunday, he added to his own legend by winning his second WCOOP title of the year to give him eight total.

Deeb topped the 599-player field in Event #37 Medium ($530 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max) to win $52,371.70. That win pairs nicely with his earlier victory in Event #9 High ($1,050 NL Five-Card Draw PKO) which earned him $25,375.

Deeb wasn’t the only World Series of Poker bracelet winner who found the winner’s circle on Sunday. Andrey ‘Kroko-dill’ Zaichenko beat Ben ‘jenbizzle’ Jones heads-up to win Event #34 High ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em Afternoon Deep Stack) for the fourth WCOOP win of his career. He earned $69,953.22 for his win while Jones had to settle for $52,473.29 as the runner-up while former #1-ranked ‘girafganger7‘ finished third for $39,361.38.

Joris ‘BillLewinsky’ Ruijs, the #1-ranked online poker player in the Netherlands, won the second WCOOP title of his career after he outlasted a field of 1,859 in Event #36 High ($530 No Limit Hold’em Eight Max PKO) to earn $70,158.01 from the prize pool and another $58,721.47 in bounties. Brazil’s Renan ‘RenanToniolo’ Toniolo finished second for $50,010.26 plus $8,569.31 in bounties. ‘Futti18‘ finished third for $35,649.06 and $11,061.00 in bounties.

Sticking with the theme of players adding to their WCOOP tally rather than starting it, ‘xnrobix‘ won his second career title after outlasting the 179-player field in Event #37 High ($5,200 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max, High Roller) to win $178,512.19. Runner-up ActionFreak earned $134,936.74 while third-place finisher ‘kimokh‘ narrowly missed out on his second title in two days and took home $101,998.40.

Other players who managed to earn a WCOOP title on Sunday included ‘Tomas20LT‘, ‘Reckoner303‘, ‘karamba1111‘, ‘ronnieb122‘, and ‘Gabriel1244‘.
