  1. 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
  2. When it was announced that 54 events of the 2020 World Series of Poker would be held on GGPoker, it meant that for the very first time players outside of the United States could compete for a gold bracelet online. It also opened the door for elite online poker players all over the world to bracelet chase without having to make the trek to Las Vegas. With that in mind, prior to the start of the series, PocketFives staff attempted to make some predictions of players that we thought would make a serious impact on the 2020 WSOP. We dove into the player pools from the online poker powerhouse cou
  3. For the last six months, Brazilian Bruno Botteon has been on an absolute rampage on the online felt and on Thursday the #3-ranked player in the world took down a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title for the second time in his career. Botteon topped the 192-entry field, including eliminating Gediminas ‘Gedis92’ Uselis heads up, in Event #36 High ($2,100 NLHE Midweek Freeze) to earn the title and $80,642.40. His first WCOOP win came last year when he took down a $530 Heads Up NLHE Turbo PKO Zoom event. Uselis earned $62,088.88 for his performance while Mike Watson finished

  7. Viktor 'papan9_p$' Ustimov had himself quite a day on Tuesday. The Russian grinder finished third in the final event of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online and then went on to earn the first PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title of his career. Ustimov outlasted 629 other players in Event #31 High ($530 4 Max NLHE) and made Guillaume 'Nolet20' Nolet a runner-up for the second time in two days.

  8. As the 2020 World Series of Poker Online draws to a close with just a few tournaments left on the schedule, Event #85 ($500 The Closer [Last Chance]) tournament drew 4,012 to generate a prize pool of $1,905,700. Two-time World Series of Poker Bracelet winner Shankar Pillai and three-time WSOP Bracelet winner Michael Gathy both found their way into the final three in this massive field. And in the end, it was Gathy who came out on top to earn a first-place prize worth $260,504 and his fourth WSOP Bracelet. Gathy already had an impressive WSOP resume coming into this event. The Belgium nativ
  9. Fedor Holz is known to many as simply, "The Prince". But on Sunday, Holz captured the top crown all for himself after beating Sergi Reixach and Brunno Botteon to win the 2020 World Series of Poker $25,000 Heads Up No Limit Hold'em title. The win is the second bracelet for the former #1-ranked PocketFiver and marks the second time that he won the highest buy-in event on the schedule. In 2016, Holz won the $111,111 buy-in High Roller for One Drop for his first career bracelet. Sunday's action saw Holz, Reixach, Botteon, and Oktay Kahyaoglu return to the felt following a five-day break. Hol
  10. Yuri Dzivielevski has had himself a pretty decent start to the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. The former PocketFives #1-ranked player won his second career WCOOP title on Wednesday. On Sunday, he doubled his pleasure by becoming the first player to pick up two titles this year after denying a fellow Brazilian that same distinction. Dzivielevski, who won Event #9 High ($1,050 NL 2-7 Single Draw) on Wednesday, beat Murilo 'Muka82' Figueiredo heads up on Saturday to win Event #20 High ($1,050 HORSE) for $31,115. Had those two positions been reversed, Figueiredo would have
  11. For the last five days, 38 poker players have been dreaming about having the possibility of becoming the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Main Event champion. That's how many players were left when the tournament was paused last Monday. Bryan Piccioli was the chip leader and online crushers Benjamine Rolle, Samuel Vousden, and Jonas Lauck were all still in contention. But as the 38 players began clicking buttons on Saturday afternoon, those four players were all pushed aside to make way for Serbian Stoyan 'Nirvana76' Madanzhiev. Piccioli was eliminated in 23rd place after coming out on
  12. Friday was a relatively quiet day on the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker schedule. Just three new champions were crowned on Friday with all of them coming from Event #16. Russia's 'LeslieGroves' beat out 94 other players in Event #16 ($10,300 NLHE PKO High Roller) to win their first WCOOP title and over $263,000. The win came with $111,206.12 from the prize pool, but the unknown player also walked away with $152,421.87 in bounties. The last bounty collected came from runner-up Rodrigo 'seijistar' Seiji. The Brazilian grinder won $11,205.97 from the prize pool and an addit
  13.     Michelle Shah only got to spend XX minutes at the final table. Molinelli raised to 220,000 from the hijack before Shah moved all in from the cutoff for 1,810,581. Molinelli called and flipped over [ah][qs] and Shah discovered she was racing with [8d][8h]. The [as][5h][2s] flop moved Molinelli in front and Shah found no help on the [6s] turn or [5c] river and was eliminated in ninth place. Thirty-five minutes later another race ended a second player's run. Lucas Hafner raised to 240,000 from the button with [as][ks] before Pavel Plusev re-raised to 1,800,000 with [5c][5d]
  14. Over the course of the 2020 World Series of Poker, PocketFives will be checking in with Chris Moorman and Katie Lindsay as they chase down WSOP glory. This is Episode 5 of The House of Moorman. In the days before Black Friday, American politicians loved to get all cute when discussing the evils of online gaming. "Click a mouse, lose a house!" became a popular refrain amongst the biggest proponents of a ban on online gaming. Well, during their recent trip to Mexico to play the 2020 World Series of Poker Online, the Moormans did the exact opposite, both literally and figuratively. Chris Mo

  17. Adnan Hacialioglu needed just seven hours to go from cards in the air to bracelet winner on Sunday as the Finnish pro made quick work of the final table in Sunday's World Series of Poker   Another WSOP Online Event has finished, and this one took less time than usual, as only seven hours passed between the first and last hand of the event. When the dust settled, it was Adnan Hacialioglu who finished on top of the field that saw almost 2,000 players come out. For his efforts, Hacialioglu took home his first WSOP bracelet, along with $259,872, and a WSOP Europe Package. The final tabl
  18. No matter what happens, the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Main Event will have the largest prize pool in online poker history. The $5,000 buy-in event, which has 22 starting flights, features a $25 million guarantee, allowing it to surpass the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS which had a $21,780,000 prize pool. Slapping a guarantee on an event is one thing, putting enough butts in seats to make it is another entirely. To avoid an overlay, the tournament needs to draw 5,264 entries or an average of 240 per flight. PocketFives will be keeping an eye on this tournament as it pushes through the 22
