Vitor Dzivielevski became the first player to win two WPT Online titles.

Another three titles were handed out on Thursday in the World Poker Tour Online series on partypoker, including the crowning of the first two-time WPT Online champion.

Brazil’s Vitor Dzivielevski topped the field of 1532 entries in Event #28 ($109 Mini 6-Max) to win the $22,230 first-place prize and become the first person to claim his second WPT Online title. Dzivielevski’s first victory in the WPT Online series came on May 3 when he fought his way through another large field event, knocking out the competition in the 2548 player field in Event #2 ($215 Mini Knockout) to take home a combined score of over $57,000.

Tristan Taylor wrapped up Event #28 as the runner-up which was good for $16,086. David Ivers picked up the bronze and added $12,256 to his bankroll.

The largest score of the day belonged to Germany’s Wiktor Malinowski who navigated the tough field of 115 high rollers and picked up a victory in the two-day Event #29 ($10,300 High Roller) for $281,750. High-stakes tournament specialist Nick Petrangelo fell just one spot short of the title, finishing as the runner-up and collecting $201,250 for his efforts. Pascal Lefrancois finished in third place and took home $143,750.

In Event #28 ($1,050 6-Max) Gustavo Mastelotto became the second Brazilian on the day to earn a WPT title. Mastelotto survived the 401-entry field to earn the $80,200 first-place prize. Fausto Tantito ended his run as the runner-up, collecting $59,348. Finally, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Steven ’SvZff’ van Zadelhoff wrapped up in third place and added $43,107 to his impressive career total of $10.6 million in lifetime earnings.

Three more two-day events kicked off on Thursday including Event #32 ($25,500 Super High Roller) which saw 87 players enter for a shot of a piece of the over $2 million prize pool. Of those 87, only eight made it to day two with Juan Pardo Dominguez holding the overnight chip lead. Elio Fox, Pauli Ayras, Christopher Hunichen, and Timothy Adams are among those who will return to fight for the $565K first-place prize.
