  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 t
  2. 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

  6. Denis Strebkov and Shaun Deeb sit firmly atop the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker all-time leaderboard with nine and eight titles respectively. The group right behind is growing and coming hard though. On Thursday night, Russia's Andrey Zaichenko moved into a tie for third place all-time after capturing his fifth career WCOOP title. He's now tied with former #1-ranked PocketFiver Dan Kelly and Dzmitry Urbanovich. Zaichenko's win came in Event #62 High ($1,050 Stud Hi Lo) where he outlasted 100 other players to earn the victory and $24,745. Zaichenko, Kelly, and Urbanovich m
  7. Benny Glaser added another piece to his poker resume on Tuesday winning a third PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title. Glaser, who also owns five Spring Championship of Online Poker titles, defeated Japan's Naoya 'nkeyno' Kihara in Event #55 High ($2,100 HORSE) to win $43,055. This marks the third consecutive year that Glaser has conquered a WCOOP event. In 2018, he won a $55 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha event, and in 2019, he took down a $109 Razz title. Almost as if required, the biggest winner on the day came from Brazil. Vitor Peixoto Moreira defeated Philipp Gruissem heads up t
  8. Summers in the Ukraine aren't bad. They're not great either. Highs of 80 degrees fahrenheit in July and August is comfortable, but it's not exactly vacation-worthy. So when the World Series of Poker announced there would be 54 WSOP bracelets available to be won on GGPoker, Dmytro Bystrovzorov decided to take a working vacation to Mexico. Bystrovzorov and his girlfriend made the nearly 7,000 mile trip from their native Gorlovka to Mexico in part because the weather is so nice, but also because it was an optimal choice to grind as many WSOP events as possible. "I stayed in Mexico for about

  13. Conor Beresford has held down the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings since mid-May but on Wednesday he added something to his list of accomplishments that has been missing until now: a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title.

  17. 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
  18. A little over three years ago, Shoma Ishikawa had never really played poker. He had friends who played and might have seen some of it on TV or YouTube. He'd just never given it much thought. That all changed in March 2017 when some of those friends invited the then 22-year-old to play in their game. Now 25, Ishikawa has already done something that many poker players spend their lives dreaming about. On July 19, as the World Series of Poker Online events on GGPoker kicked off, Ishikawa outlasted 2,213 players in Event #34 ($525 Super Turbo Bounty NLHE Six Max) to win his first WSOP bracelet.

  20. For the third consecutive year, Adrian Mateos stood tall at the end of a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker event on Sunday and added yet another accolade to his already impressive poker resume. The Spanish superstar beat out 200 other players to win Event #28 High ($2,100 NLHE PKO Freezeout Sunday Cooldown) for more than $81,000 including $45,234.37 from bounties. The final bounty Mateos collected belonged to Hungarian 'kZhh' who earned just a tad more than $50,000. Stefan 'mindgamer' Jedlicka earned the bronze medal and almost $42,000. Mateos previous two WCOOP titles came in a
  21. Superstars in the highest stakes tournaments around the world, online grinders working their way up from $20 tournaments, or home game regulars who have had to explain the rules of No Limit Texas Hold’em to a new player more than once, all owe a debt of gratitude to Mike Sexton. The voice of the game and the face of the industry, Sexton meant more to poker than can possibly be measured. On Sunday, Sexton died after a battle with prostate cancer. He was 72 years old. An invaluable asset to the poker community, Sexton was a World Poker Tour co-commentator, World Series of Poker bracelet wi
