  1. Current worldwide #1-ranked Yuri Dzivielevski and UK high roller Talal Shakerchi were among the high-profile winners in the latest batch of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker events. In Dzivielevski's case, he did it twice. In what was a dramatic first win of the week, representing Dzivielevski’s sixth career WCOOP title, the Brazilian got the better of an online poker legend in the form of Dutch master Lex Veldhuis. The $10,300-entry No Limit Hold’em Event #80-H ($10,300 NLHE 8-Max PKO) saw the brilliant Brazilian get the better of Veldhuis to the tune of $265,918 in total prizes. It was a ding-dong battle at the end of an exciting final table, with other big names to fall late including Teun Mulder (9th for $40,126), former #1-ranked Andras Nemeth (8th for $56,705), Niklas Astedt (6th for $35,081), and Christian Rudolph (3rd for $83,866). The result might have been tough for Veldhuis to take, but the money wasn’t, with the Dutch destroyer recording his biggest ever online result in multi-table tournaments, taking home a total prize fund (bounties and placement) of $172,793. Veldhuis dominated much of the final table, eliminating many players, but heads-up was one-way traffic until a seismic pre-flop raising war that ended when Veldhuis’ ace-queen couldn’t get there against Dzivielevski’s ace-king. After the event, Dzivielevski shared news of his win online as he celebrated on Twitter. https://twitter.com/YuriNerdguy/status/1436781189029892097 It was only a few events later that Dzivielevski made it two wins and this time, it was against a fellow countryman in Pedro Garagnani. Event #88-H ($2,100 NLHE 8-Max Turbo PKO) saw Dzivielevski triumph for a top prize of $83,249 as he topped the 190 entries to reign supreme. Elsewhere in the event, as well as Garagnani (2nd for $35,593) and Bruno ‘great dant’ Volkmann (3rd for $36,596), there were cashes for players such as Veldhuis (22nd for $4,562), Chris Oliver (6th for $11,848), and Talal Shakerchi (5th for $14,502). https://twitter.com/YuriNerdguy/status/1436852918536318977 Shakerchi would get some revenge on the high roller set when he took down Event #86-H ($1,050 NL08 6-Max) for $36,101 of the $181,000 prize pool. Heads-up, Shakerchi got the better of ‘1bloodflood’ who won $27,288 and also outlasted ‘FONBET_RULIT’ who finished third for $20,627. There were dozens of WCOOP winners in low and medium events, with the following players winning titles: ‘I_RaisyDaizy_I’ (Event #84-L), ‘Regis R69’ (Event #84-M), ‘tchozen666’ (Event #85-L), ‘Klyukvenniy’ (Event #85-M), ‘tratata44’ (Event #86-L), ‘dLaNiii’ (Event #86-M), ‘Capirov’ (Event #87-L), ‘sprint9410’ (Event #87-M), ‘Loke3011’ (Event #88-L), ‘ich_b1n_du’ (Event #88-M), ‘PhilKin9216’ (Event #89-L), ‘Mikel Unanue’ (Event #89-M), ‘Garos27’ (Event #90-L), ‘soulmekki’ (Event #90-M), ‘gjwanke’ (Event #93-L), ‘pacyff80’ (Event #93-M), ‘Valeron12344’ (Event #96-L), ‘sweetmike79’ (Event #96-M).

  2. The latest round of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker titles have been won and there were some big names among those taking the top prizes. Polish poker legend Dzmitry Urbanovich, All-Time Online Money List leader Joao Vieira, and former Sunday Million winner Mantas ‘bagoch’ Bagočius all took home titles while notable pros Patrick Leonard, Parker Talbot, and former #1-ranked Chris Oliver all coming close. The biggest event on the WCOOP calendar over the last couple of days was easily the $25,000-entry Super High Roller, which was won by Hungarian player ‘kZhh’ after a thrilling final table saw players such as Justin Bonomo and Adrian Mateos both missed out. It’s worth looking back at this unique event in isolation, so here is how the final nine finished: WCOOP Event #34-H $25,000 Super High Roller: ‘kZhh’ (Hungary) - $657,557 Chris Oliver (U.S.A.) - $509,470 ‘spaise411’ (Russia) - $394,733 Adrian Mateos (Spain) - $305,835 Fabiano Kovalski (Brazil) - $236,959 Justin Bonomo (U.S.A.) $183,593 ‘CrazyLissy’ (Russia) - $142,247 Pedro Padilha (Brazil) - $110,211 ‘Sintoras’ (Germany) - $87,327 Chris Oliver came mighty close to winning that title but lost out heads-up to the first-time winner from Hungary, ‘kZhh’, who also took down the 2021 PokerStars SCOOP Main Event for over $878,000. Oliver, a former worldwide #1-ranked online player who took down the WCOOP $1k PKO Event back in 2019, will have been disappointed not to get over the line, but he was in great company in doing so. Adrian Mateos can claim to have had it harder than most, although it’s only down to his own skill that the Spaniard might have found the final table tougher than the others, as he was also playing the WSOP $25,000-entry event on the same day. Polish superstar Dzmitry Urbanovich claimed his latest major title under his online pseudonym ‘Colisea’ as he bagged Event #32-H ($1,050 NLHE) for a top prize of $77,614. Pipping last year's WSOP Main Event winner Damian ‘pampa27’ Salas to the title, Urbanovich, the former partypoker pro who left his pro team back in June, also outlasted ‘Piggysnipz’, who came in third for $43,587. Urbanovich has enjoyed a hugely successful last few years, and while he is known as a top professional in the live arena, this latest online victory will have reminded players and fans of just how good he is no matter where he shuffles up. In Event 33-H ($530 8-Max PKO Freezeout), Manuel ‘fellatiado’ Ruivo took the title, winning $30,528 in bounties and the $44,791 top prize, edging out ‘Mr.LuckyMan88’ (second for over $57,00 in total) and 'gabsdrogba’, who banked over - $38,000 for reaching the podium. Plenty of other events took place over Monday and Tuesday, with Event #35-H ($2,100 5-Card PLO 6-Max) won by ‘cmontopdeck’ for $62,020, beating Richard 'raconteur' Gryko into second place for $47,206. Gryko, who won $107,761 for another WCOOP runner-up result in September last year, will be distraught to have taken silver yet again. Elsewhere, former Sunday Million winner Mantas ‘bagoch’ Bagočius won Event #38-H ($2,100 6-Max PKO) to grab over $125,000, a massive proportion of the $646,000 prize pool spread out over 323 entries. This win may not quite have reached the heights of that $168,883 Sunday Million win back in 2015, but it was another major event. Few players being able to claim they have won both a WCOOP and the ‘Milly’. The Sunday Million winner this week was also the WCOOP Event #34-H winner, of course, with ‘MrHyde97’ winning the $245,066 top prize, edging out ‘THE MOVER 92’ heads-up. In the other high events, Parker Talbot won $12,880 in Event #39-H ($1,050 Razz 8-Max), falling just short of the title in third place. Event #40-H ($1,050 7-Max Freezeout) saw Joao Vieira claim yet another massive win as he outlasted ‘WhatIfGod’ to win the $64,680 top prize, with ‘ThePateychuk’ coming in third. Finally, in Event #41-H ($2,100 FL 2-7 Triple Draw 6-Max) it was the turn of ‘Assad91’ to get the better of all their opponents, with the top prize of $36,819 claimed by the Argentinian. It was a British duo who made the other two places on the podium as Luke Schwartz won $23,531 in second place and Patrick Leonard came third for $15,038. In low and medium events, there were wins for ‘stepibakins’ (Event #33-L), ‘Baca4b’ (Event #33-M), ‘Perrymejsen’ (Event #34-M), ‘anti-durrr’ (Event #35-L), ‘shrekpoker91’ (Event #35-M), ‘Durabo’ (Event #36-L), ‘$uperdecay’ (Event #36-M), ‘anth0nypappa’ (Event #37-L), ‘0PIGGYBANK’ (Event #37-M), ‘Gladi3’ (Event #38-L), ‘piton4479’ (Event #38-M), ‘DoePopoe’ (Event #39-L), ‘Jindujun0805’ (Event #39-M), ‘Hackysack27’ (Event #40-L), ‘PPthegod90’ (Event #40-M), ‘Mattuttes’ (Event #41-L) and ‘vpisjak’ (Event #41-M). High Events: Event #32 (High) $1,050 NLHE Prizepool: $431,000 Entries: 431 ‘Colisea’ - $77,614 ‘pampa27’ - $58,163 ‘Piggysnipz’ - $43,587 Event #33 (High) $530 8-Max PKO Freezeout Prizepool: 678,500 Entries: 1,357 ‘fellatiado’ - $30,528 (Bounties) $44,791 (Prize) ‘Mr.LuckyMan88’ - $13,758 (Bounties) $44,790 (Prize) ‘gabsdrogba - $11,707 (Bounties) $26,600 (Prize) Event #34 (High) $25,000 NLHE 8-Max Super High Roller Prize pool: $3,000,000 Entries: 16 ‘kZhh’ - $657,557 ‘ImDaNuts’ - $509,469 ‘spaise411’ - $394,732 Event #35 (High) $2,100 5-Card PLO 6-Max Prize pool: $306,000 Entries: 153 ‘cmontopdeck’ - $62,020 ‘raconteur’ - $47,206 ‘jokkee_apart’ - $35,930 Event #38 (High) $2,100 6-Max PKO Prizepool: $646,000 Entries: 323 ‘bagoch’ - $73,593 (Bounties) $52,291 (Prize) ‘GlobalHappiness’ - $12,421 (Bounties) $52,291 (Prize) ‘$()meb()dY’ - $9,718 (Bounties) $32,081 (Prize) Event #39 (High) $1,050 Razz 8-Max Prizepool: $92,000 Entries: 92 ‘_sennj_’ - $25,070 ‘Daenarys T’ - $17,020 ‘tonkaaaa’ - $12,880 Event #40 (High) $1,050 7-Max Freezeout Prizepool: $308,000 Entries: 308 ‘Naza114’ - $64,680 ‘WhatIfGod’ - $46,200 ‘ThePateychuk’ - $32,340 Event #41 (High) $2,100 FL 2-7 Triple Draw 6-Max Prizepool: $85,000 Entries: 40 ‘Assad91’ - $36,819 ‘Ib6121’ - $23,531 ‘pads1161’ - $15,038
  3. The weekend’s 2021 World Championship of Online Poker events saw some of online poker's most notable names score big as the latest High events in the PokerStars online series took place. There were wins for players including South American poker crusher Diego Ventura, British high roller Talal Shakerchi, and Finnish online legend Jussi 'calvin7v' Nevanlinna, who moved into the top four of all-time WCOOP title winners. Plus, a near miss for long-time grinder, and author, Dara ‘Doke’ O’Kearney. The High events saw some of the biggest action of the weekend, with Event #26-H ($530 NLHE Deep Stack Freezeout) seeing Finnish player ‘mahmutt88’ taking the title and $53,840 top prize. It was Bulgarian player ‘Stoqnov303’ who finished second, beaten heads-up to take the $40,145 runner-up prize, with Canadian ‘Camilancefieldg’ claiming $29,934 for a podium finish. Brazilian player Pedro Garagnani, a recent big winner himself online, came fifth for $16,643. Dara ‘SlowDoke’ O’Kearney came fourth for $22,320 after qualifying for the tournament via a satellite, not a surprise for someone who has published a bestselling poker book on the subject, 2019’s Poker Satellite Strategy. https://twitter.com/daraokearney/status/1432196534746206216 As he told us after his weekend win, O’Kearney follows strict self-discipline on entering events of this level, despite his enormous success at the online felt. “I'm following conservative bankroll management these days with all the big series online, so for WCOOP anything above $215 I only play if I satellite in.” This stringent strategy led to a massive return on O’Kearney’s investment on Sunday. “I got into [the event] through the last deadline satellite - pro tip, those are always the softest. To be honest, I remember very little about Day 1 other than being pleasantly surprised that I got through with a decent stack as I was 12-tabling. For Day 2, I kept down to six tables to give it more focus which meant I even ended up skipping my favourite Sunday MTT, the Supernova on Unibet.” Day 2 was inevitably a tough field, as some of the best poker players around got down to the business end of bringing their A-games to battle for big money. “The field got noticeably tougher as it thinned out,” agrees O’Kearney. “I remember deciding I had to take thin edges given how tough the remaining field was. The first one I took, four-bet shoving ace-five suited on the final table bubble paid off, as I got there against pocket jacks. The bust-out was a similar spot, barely profitable, but this time my pocket deuces didn’t get there against pocket tens, but I have no regrets.” One of the biggest winners over the weekend was Peru’s finest poker player - at least in terms of live results - Diego Ventura. The Peruvian poker professional won Event #28-H ($1,050 8-Max PKO) for a total of $113,488 as the massive prize pool of $810,000 was shared out between just 103 players of the 810 entries. The top two chopped bar a dollar for the win, but Ventura’s incredible bounty total meant he won a lot more than ‘Spotzilla666’ in second place ($20,642 in bounties and a $58,993 runner-up prize) and ‘GamadGADOL’ ($7,273 in bounties and $36,619 for their third-place finish. Elsewhere in the event, five Brazilians cashed in the top 18 players, another amazing South American showing in a series that has been dominated by players from the continent. Event #27-H ($1,050 5-Card PLO8 6-Max) saw ‘PaGaOVelhinho’ win yet another WCOOP title for $32,834, with Lithuania’s ‘vincelis’ (2nd for $24,991) and Russian ‘recusant_89’ (3rd for $19,021) both coming close. Elsewhere in the event, recent PokerStars Team Pro addition Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot sneaked into the money in 18th place for $2,386. The event saw Ami ‘UhhMee’ Barer miss out on the money by bubbling the event, having claimed the Event #21-M WCOOP title just last week. Event #29-H ($2,100 8-Game 6-Max) saw the incredible ‘calvin7v’ from Finland, a.k.a. Jussi Nevanlinna, win his fifth WCOOP title, putting him fourth on the list of all-time multiple WCOOP winners. The champion took the top prize of $40,486 from a prize pool of $150,000, with 68 yielding just nine paid places. ‘Fresh_oO_D’ came second for $30,264, with ‘spaise411’ finishing third for $22,623, while Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira snuck into the money by finishing ninth for $5,280. One of the biggest winners of the weekend was British player Talal ‘raidalot’ Shakerchi, the high roller regular taking his second WCOOP title after winning Event #45 of the 2020 WCOOP series. Shakerchi, who won a SCOOP title way back in 2016 too, bossed Event #37-H ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max Turbo PKO High Roller) for a top prize of $124,687 including bounties and place prizes combined. With a whopping $580,000 prize pool and 116 entries, ‘WushuTM’ won $42,187 in bounties and $56,406 as a place prize for coming second, with current #1-ranked Yuri ‘theNERDguy’ Dzivielevski amassing over $55,000 in total winnings by finishing third. In the Event #30-H ($2,100 NLHE 8-Max Turbo) tournament, ‘WizardOffAz’ won the $63,304 top prize, with ‘Graftekkel’ (2nd for $49,284) and ‘YacuTTi’ (3rd for $38,369) both falling just short. With a massive $314,000 in the prize pool, 157 entries saw just 20 players cash with Sam ‘SamSquid’ Grafton (19th for $4,267) among them. Event #31-H ($1,050 7-Max Turbo PKO) saw 382 players topped by ‘_m0ney2_89’, who lived up to their name to win over $78,000 in prizes, while Event #36-H ($1,050 8-Max PKO Freezeout) saw $457,000 in the prize pool claimed by some great players, with the winner, ‘Piggysnipz’ winning over $74,000 and the title. The weekend welcomed plenty of winners in low and medium events. WCOOP winners in those value events included ‘JohnnieD47’ (Event #26-L), ‘Venulaband’ (Event #26-M), ‘Maverick250’ (Event #27-L), ‘IExPlayI’ (Event #27-M), ‘iveydoagrest’ (Event #28-L), ‘makemevision’ (Event #28-M), ‘lukaschek.1’ (Event #29-L), ‘Loveles5’ (Event #29-M), ‘fiorikopke69’ (Event #30-L), ‘Manu8866’ (Event #30-M), ‘lucksomuch77’ (Event #31-L), ‘karbovski’ (Event #31-M), ‘Durabo’ (Event #36-L), $uperdecay (Event #36-M), ‘anth0nypappa’ (Event #37-L) and ‘“0PIGGYBANK”’ (Event #37-M).

  4. The latest PokerStars 2021 World Championship of Online Poker events have paid out some huge prizes as big names have again hoovered up some titles to add to their poker resumés. Winners across Wednesday and Thursday included the German high roller Christian ‘WATnlos’ Rudolph, who took down the High Event #24 for $71,404, former #2-ranked pro Ivan Zufic, and longtime Belgian grinder Thomas 'MarToMchat' Boivin. Rudolph, who has previously won two High Roller tournaments in one day, as we previously reported, saw off some top-quality opposition to seal an impressive victory. In what was an exciting final table in an event with 179 entries at $2,100, Rudolph saw off the challenge of Swedish player ‘fkiw’ and ‘luckyluck653’ in the podium places, with two Brazilians also making the final table. The massive prize pool of $358,000 saw Rudolph win the biggest prize, but the Brazilian contingent was an indication of what was to come over days ahead, as once again, South American players continued to fly high during what has been a spectacular summer for online poker in the continent. It was a big couple of days for Brazilian players specifically, with half a dozen more victories in low and medium events in a series that has seen the Brazilian poker game thrive, just as it is in World Series of Poker events too. In other events, Swiss player Dinesh Alt took down the $530-entry Event #12 (High) by beating former SCOOP Main Event winner ‘Alexgirs’ heads-up for the $37,306 in bounties and the $37,290 top prize. Other players at the final table included Fintan ‘easywithaces’ Hand, who finished seventh for over $8,300 in total. In other high events, ‘MarToMchat’ outlasted a field of 271 players to win Event #17 (High) for a whopping $130,500.00. Climbing the ranks of PocketFives, ‘MarToMchat’ is racing into the top 250 players in the world at the time of writing and is currently the best Belgian poker player online. Chris ‘ImDaNuts’ Oliver finished seventh for $18,000.

  6. J.C. Tran. Yevgeniy Timoshenko. Fedor Holz. Steven van Zadelhoff. Through the 20 year history of the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, some of the biggest names in poker have had a signature win in the WCOOP Main Event. Along with the seven-figure score for winning comes the opportunity to build a legacy alongside some other online poker legends. The 2021 WCOOP Main Event High features a $5,200 buy-in and a $10 million guarantee. While that price point might seem out of reach for the everyday grinder, PokerStars has an extensive satellite program designed to help players of all bankrolls work their way into the big one. Winning the WCOOP Main Event would certainly elevate any poker player to legend status, but doing so by turning $1 into the title and $1,000,000+ would be a win for the ages. PokerStars offers exactly that opportunity through their WCOOP Fast Track, which is awarding $1,000,000 of WCOOP tickets. Step 1 is a $1 buy-in 12-player sit-n-go that awards one ticket to the Step 2 tournament. Step 2 is a 21-player $12 buy-in that will send two players to the Step 3 event. This is where things change a little bit. Step 3 is a $109 buy-in multi-table tournament that guarantees at least four tickets to the fourth and final stage. Step 4 has a $1,050 buy-in and once again is an MTT format with three $5,200 Main Event seats guaranteed. Players don't have to start at the $1 buy-in level. They can enter any one of the step tournaments by buying in with cash. For players who prefer the thrill of the hunt, PokerStars also has a dedicated set of Spin-n-Gos that reward players with all kinds of WCOOP tickets available to be won, including Main Event seats. Players can enter Spin-n-Gos with buy-ins of $1.50, $4, or $22 to win WCOOP tickets. Players can win just a single Main Event entry and any subsequent Main Event seats won will be automatically converted to tournament dollars. For players who prefer a more traditional satellite route, the Phase system might just scratch that itch. There are multiple $55 buy-in Phase 1 tournaments each day. Players who bag chips after 15 levels of play move onto the Phase 2 tournament. Phase 2 runs each Sunday and awards a minimum of five $5,200 Main Event seats. While the High NLHE Main Event is the one that grabs all of the headlines, there is also the Medium and Low Main Events with buy-ins of $1,050 and $109 respectively. Mega satellites are available for the Medium Main Event for $109 while the Low Main Event megas cost $2.20. Each of those MTTs typically guarantees at least five seats to their associated Main Event. All six of the 2021 WCOOP Main Events begin Sunday, September 12.
  7. The storyline throughout the first two weeks of the 2021 World Series of Poker Online has been the dominance of the Brazilian contingent. The arena might be different, but early returns show that the 2021 World Championship of Online Poker just might follow that narrative. Three Brazilian players grabbed WCOOP titles on Monday, with Pedro 'pvigar' Garagnani the biggest winner of the bunch. Garagnani topped the 200-entry field in Event #4-H ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max, High Roller) to win $195,690 and the second WCOOP title of his career. His first came in 2017. Finishing one spot behind Garagnani was Diego Ventura. The Peruvian superstar had to settle for the silver medal slot and $152,344.30. Third place went to Christian 'WATnlos' Rudolph. The two other Brazilian winners on Monday came from Low buy-in events. 'GuaranaDolly' won Event #3-L ($22 NLHE PKO Freezeout) and 'OFaroFino' secured the bag in Event #6-L ($11 NLHE Six Max). Jonathan 'Proudflop' Proudfoot, the #2-ranked player in the United Kingdom, won his first WCOOP title by beating a Brazilian heads up. Proudfoot, who has a Spring Championship of Online Poker title on his resume, beat 'BLEFE GOD' to win Event #2-H ($530 WCOOP Kickoff). Proudfoot walked away with a $90,131.09 score while 'BLEFE GOD' took home $65,440.33. Robert 'kravm65' Burlacu finished in third and earned $47,513.73. Hungarian star Peter 'twirlpro' Turmezy made his way through 459 other entries in WCOOP Event #3-H ($2,100 NLHE PKO, Sunday Warm-Up SE) to win his first WCOOP title. Along with the trophy, Turmezy added $134,505 to his lifetime earnings. Andrey 'ThePateychuk' Pateychuk finished runner-up. The four-card game also got some run on Monday. '#Naktro91' won Event #5-H ($2,100 PLO Six Max) for $72,202.73. The event, which attracted 181 entries, had another Brazilian just miss out on the win. Dante 'dantegoyaF' Goya finished in second place for $54,577.76. Anatoly 'NL_Profit' Filatov worked his way through 553 other entries in Event #6-H ($1,050 NLHE Six Max) to win the second WCOOP title of his career. British pro Tyler 'wonderboy222' Goatcher finished runner-up while Austrian 'Grozzorg' took the final spot on the podium. Dinesh 'NastyMinder' Alt won his second WCOOP title in as many years after shipping Event #11-H ($530 NLO8 8-Max PKO) for $27,168.77. It was the second final table of the day for Alt. He busted in seventh place in Event #4. Other WCOOP winners on Monday included 'LillaLejonet' (Event #2-L), 'crossthervr' (Event #2-M), 'thx4urm0n3y' (Event #3-M), 'drak1973' (Event #5-L), 'HTRYG' (Event #5-M), 'ekkntm' (Event #6-M), 'HetlsJeBoy' (Event #11-L), and 'avttaS' (Event #11-M).

  8. The opening day of the 2021 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker was a busy one with seven events and 21 total tournaments in action, but just three players finished Sunday's action with a WCOOP title. All three buy-in levels of Event #7 played down to a champion with a player from the Netherlands walking away as the big winner. 'nmi128' beat out 970 other players to win Event #7-H ($530 Sunday Cooldown SE 8-Max Turbo PKO NLHE Freezeout) for $34,375.17 and another $44,666.91 worth of bounties. It was their first WCOOP title. Brazilian players have been dominating the World Series of Poker Online and came oh-so-close to kicking off the WCOOP schedule with a title but 'Jâmes' fell one spot short and had to settle for the silver medal and $34,374.61 and another $6,620.11 from bounties. Third place went to Anthony Spinella for $20,844.26 with another $4,568.36 coming from bounties. The $485,500 prize pool easily beat the $400,000 guarantee. The Ukraine's 'gunnersfun' took home Event #7-M ($55 Sunday Cooldown SE 8-Max Turbo PKO NLHE Freezeout) and took home $18,840.69 from the prize pool and secured another $8,876.65 in bounties. The most high-profile player at the final table was undoubtedly Team PokerStars Team Pro Online member Arlie Shaban. Despite missing out on a podium finish, Shaban was excited to kick off WCOOP with a strong performance. In Event #7-L ($5.50 Mini Sunday Cooldown SE 8-Max Turbo PKO NLHE Freezeout), 'goodday2211' had a great day, beating 10,814 other players to win $2,981.69 and another $1,107.76 in bounties. Monday promises to be a much busier day with six events and 18 tournaments playing down to a winner. WCOOP Event #7 (High): $530 Sunday Cooldown SE (8-Max Turbo PKO NLHE Freezeout) Entries: 971 Prize pool: $485,500 nmi128 - $34,375.17 + $44,666.91 in bounties Jâmes - $34,374.61 + $6,620.11 in bounties Anthony 'holdplz' Spinella - $20,844.26 + $4,568.36 in bounties WCOOP Event #7 (Medium): $55 Sunday Cooldown SE (8-Max Turbo PKO NLHE Freezeout) Entries: 6,212 Prize pool: $$310,600 gunnersfun - $18,840.69 + $8,876.65 in bounties lucasfranque - $18,837.50 + $5,554.58 in bounties mark188193 - $11,034.76 + $969.20 in bounties WCOOP Event #7 (Low): $5.50 Mini Sunday Cooldown SE (8-Max Turbo PKO NLHE Freezeout) Entries: 10,815 Prize pool: $52.993.50 goodday2211 - $2,981.69 + $1,107.76 in bounties disneyyman - $2,972.58 + $507.57 in bounties dario.boss27 - $1,763.70 + $391.07 in bounties
  9. The PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, one of online poker’s premier tournament series, returns for its 20th year, kicking off on August 22 and featuring more than $100 million in overall guaranteed prize money. Running from August 22 through September 15, PokerStars aims to make the 2021 version of WCOOP its biggest and best yet. The schedule features 102 events, each with PokerStars’ signature three-tiered buy-ins of High, Medium, and Low. That’s 306 total tournaments with entry fees ranging from as little as $5.50 and running up through the $25,000 buy-in Super High Roller. The series will conclude with six Main Events, three No Limit Hold’em and three Pot Limit Omaha, at each of the different buy-in tiers. However, traditionally, all eyes will be on the NLHE Main Event High - a $5,200 buy-in event with a $10 million guarantee. The tournament, which begins on September 12, will instantly become one of the largest online tournaments of all time with the winner almost assuredly earning more than a million dollars for first. In 2020, the WCOOP High Main Event drew 1,977 runners (providing a $115,000 overlay) and ended with Andre Marques, Tonio Roder, and Tuen Mulder agreeing to a three-handed deal that secured each of them at least $1 million. After playing it out for the win, Marques emerged as the champion and not only took home the WCOOP trophy but a career-high score of $1,147,270. Players can, once again, expect a No Limit Hold’em heavy schedule but one of PokerStars’ strengths is the ability to offer a wide variety of poker tournaments and the WCOOP schedule obliges. Titles will be awarded in nearly every variant including Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit 2-7 Single Draw, Fixed Limit 2-7 Triple Draw, Razz, PLO8, Badugi, Seven Card Stud, Short Deck (6+), and H.O.R.S.E. among others. The schedule brings players in with Event #02 (WCOOP Kickoff), a pair of major $700K GTD Progressive KnockOut tournaments in Event #03 Medium and High (PKO, Sunday Warm-Up), and Event #4, a trio of 8-Max events that all boast no less than $1 million guarantees. The action in the early events will help PokerStars reach the incredible milestone of more than $1 billion in lifetime WCOOP prize pools. There is likely to be a tournament of interest for every poker enthusiast over the course of WCOOP’s 25 days. For those looking to play for a trophy on a budget, the series has 62 tournaments that can be entered for less than $11. On the other end of the scale, online poker’s elite will have plenty to fight for with five tournaments with a buy-in of $10,300 as well as the aforementioned $25,000 Super High Roller. The schedule also caters to players who are short on time. Most WCOOP events are (at least) two-day affairs but in 2021 there are 13 Turbo events (39 tournaments) all of which will complete on the same day. Everything gets started with Event #-01, the series long Phased tournament which has starting flights throughout the duration of the series and ultimately wraps up on September 13. The Phased tournament buy-in are $5.50, $22, and $109 for Low, Medium, and High respectively and each comes with a $1 million guarantee. Players are permitted to enter as many Phase 1 flights as it takes in order to survive with chips to Phase 2, which plays as a freezeout. Satellites for the Main Event, as well as other WCOOP events, will be available in the lobby to help players on a budget find their way into an event on the cheap.
