Yuri ‘theNERDguy’ Dzivielevski is clearly enjoying his summer. The former #1-ranked online poker player in the world won his second World Series of Poker bracelet in late July and then a pair of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker titles in the first week of play.

On Monday, the Brazilian superstar added another accolade to that list by winning a third WCOOP title. Dzivielevski outlasted 265 other players and then went one-on-one with fellow Brazilian and current #2-ranked Brunno Botteon for the title in Event #48 ($5,200 NLHE PKO Sunday Slam). Dzivielevski then sent Botteon to the rail in second place to secure his third WCOOP win over the year and fourth overall. The win came with more than $245,000 from the prize pool and bounties.

He wasn’t the only player to join the triple club on Monday. Tobias ‘Senkel92’ Leknes shipped event #49 Medium ($215 Six Max NLO8 PKO) for $13,469.76 and another $10,493.70 in bounties. Leknes previously won Event #9 Low ($11 NL 2-7 Single Draw) and Event #45 Low ($11 Six Max Badugi). He now sits third on the all-time WCOOP titles list with and trails only Shaun Deeb (eight titles) and Denis Strebkov (nine titles).

girafganger7‘ just missed out on a six-figure score for taking down Event #47 High ($2,100 NLHE Sunday Warm Up). The UK-based high stakes MTT regular beat out 257 other players to win his third career WCOOP title and $99,311.22.

Russian ‘FONBET_RULIT‘ grabbed their second career WCOOP title on Monday night, outlasting 122 other entries in Event #49 High ($2,100 NLO8 Six Max PKO) to walk away with $27,651.72 from the prize pool and an additional $39,062.50 from bounties.

For the second day in a row, ‘deivid29‘ stood tall at the end of a WCOOP event. One day after shipping Event #42 High ($1,050 NLHE Afternoon Deep Stack), the Spaniard topped the 677-entry field in Event #50 High ($1,050 Six Max NLHE) to add $116,437.26 to his bankroll and another WCOOP title to his collection.

Jonathan ‘Corback_fr’ Therme beat out 367 other players to win Event #46 High ($1,050 8 Max Freezeout) for $60,232.70 after chopping heads up with ‘MaxHendrix’. This is Therme’s first WCOOP title.

Other players who won a WCOOP title on Monday include ‘Muka82‘ (Event #46 Medium), ‘13 georgiev13‘ (Event #46 Low) ‘topetersons‘ (Event #47 Medium), ‘leoleo05‘ (Event #47 Low), ‘labirint93‘ (Event #49 Low), ‘Marrakesz’ (Event #50 Medium), and ‘gustavix320‘ (Event #50 Low).
