  1. Twelve more World Championship of Online Poker events came to their conclusion on Monday topped with the crowning of a new Sunday Million champion. Lithuania's 'euras79' achieved every poker player's dream after he turned $109 into $186,467 in Event #31 Medium ($109 NLHE [Half Price Sunday Million]} after battling through the large 16,950 player field. 'euras79' previous best cash was for $13,114 after a second-place finish in the PokerStars Big $55 last year which makes his title run even more spectacular. 'ccccpusa' took the bronze medal for $94,744, before the $50,000 heads-up battle got underway. No deal was agreed to so the two players had a lot at stake, and it was 'MrMo19' who ultimately exited in second place for a $132,912 before 'euras79' claimed their biggest career title to date. 'OMGitshunt' won over $121,000 after they came through a 778 player field in Event #29 (High): $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO]. The final three consisted of two U.K. based players, but neither of them was able to go the distance. 'Malaka$tyle' took third place for a total score worth over $55,000 before Jonathan 'Gil3000' Gill fell at the final hurdle but still banked over $57,000 for his silver medal. Former PocketFives.com #1-ranked Chris 'ImDaNuts' Oliver took down Event #30 (High): $5,200 NLHE [High Roller] for a huge $250,934 score after a heads-up battle with 'bencb789'. The final table included PokerStars TeamPro Liv Boeree as well as current PocketFives.com world ranked no.#1 'Lena900,' but they fell in 7th and 6th place respectively. 'RommyTheCute' took away $144,315 in third place before the final battle got underway. There was $60,000 at stake, and it was Oliver who got the better of well-known online grinder 'Bencb789' who added $190,299 to his bankroll in second-place. Former PokerStars Sunday Million champion João 'XxJoaoFeraxX' Otávio struck a heads-up deal with Yoshiaki 'Play4livin' Paco before going on to claim the Event #30 (Medium): $530 NLHE [Sunday Warm-Up SE] title. Paco secured by far his biggest online score to date after he agreed to take $112,593 for his share of the deal after Mark 'Willy3009' Wilson had departed in third place for $70,885. Brazil's Octavio then claimed victory in the final battle and banked $126,350 as well as their first WCOOP title. The biggest winner of the day was Brazil's Fabiano 'kovalski1' Kovalski after he banked a massive $282,545 after a heads-up deal with his compatriot Eder Campana in Event #31 (High): $1,050 NLHE. The 2,077 entrant field created a $2,077,000 prize pool with over $530,000 up for grabs in the top two spots. The U.K.'s Jamie 'Ship It 2010' O'Connor secured his best online score worth $109,862 in fourth place before 'messigoat10' secured $155,368 and the bronze medal. This left the two Brazilians to arrange a money deal. Kovalski then went on to secure his second WCOOP title, eight years after his first, as he sent Campana to the rail in second place for $247,918.

  4. Nine more World Championship of Online Poker events came on their conclusion on Wednesday, September 12 as PocketFives #2-ranked 'C.Darwin2' just missed out on his first title of the series. In Event #38 (High): $1,050 NLHE [6-Max, Progressive KO], it was Slovakia's 'adkaf' who took the spoils and a first WCOOP title after a heads-up battle with 'C.Darwin2'. Ireland's 'wesko78' departed in third place for $33,912 + $13,398 (in bounties) before heads-up got underway. 'C.Darwin2' was looking to wrap up a first title of the 2018 series after previously making three final table appearances without a victory. But former Sunday Million winner 'adkaf' was the player to prevail and eliminated 'C.Darwin2' in second place for $48,164 + $8,429. 'adkaf' walked away with the gold medal and a score worth over $155,000. 'WhaTisL0v3' was the biggest winner on Wednesday after defeating Andriy 'Andre_Hansen' Lyubovetskiy heads-up to win Event #40 (High): $530 NLHE [Half Price Super Tuesday] for an eye-watering $185,562. The event saw 2,511 entrants create a $1,268,055 prize pool and on a final table that featured Renato Nomura and Jamil Wakil, 'drupa-lucker' bagged their biggest online score to date after taking the bronze medal for $92,780. Their exit made way for the final two players to fight it out for an extra $55,000, and it was to be Lyubovetskiy, who won SCOOP Event #31-High ($530 No Limit Hold’em Sunday Million Special Edition) for $229,784 back in May of this year, who fell at the final hurdle but marked a stellar performance with a $131,211 sore, with 'WhaTisL0v3' taking the overall glory. Brazil's 'KKremate' won Event #38 (Medium): $109 NLHE [6-Max, Progressive KO] for $29,059 + $17,915 (in bounties) after a heads-up deal 'michalbubble'. A massive 4,775 entrants field created a $238,750 prize pool and when the final table of six was set it featured Norway's 'Skrotnes,' as well as 'Graftekkel' and Jason 'jdtjpoker' Wheeler. Once they departed before the podium places, Russia's 'LeBroHbKA' took the bronze medal for $16,500 + $4,234 (in bounties), and the final two agreed to a money deal. There was still a sizeable amount of money to play for in the form of the bounties, and it was 'KKremate' that secured the extra bankroll boosting dollars after 'michalbubble' fell in second place for $28,609 + $3,725 (in bounties). 'Mordnilap' won $53,055 for taking the title in Event #39 (High): $2,100 FLHE. Oliver 'sk2ll_m0dR' Weis finished in third place for $31,207 and just missed on a place in the final battle. When the action resumed, it was 'Mordnilap' who went the distance after they eliminated 'MrSweets28' in second place for $40,690. 'hiran bass' added a WCOOP title to go alongside the SCOOP title he won last year after taking down Event #40 (Medium): $55 NLHE for $65,360. The Brazilian came through a 9,575 player field and the final showdown with 'holves,' who banked $45,536 in second place, to claim victory. Bass' fellow Brazilian Guilherme 'Solarius92' Costa took third place for $31,728.

  5. The 2018 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker was won by unknown player 'wann2play,' or so we thought. After a lengthy investigation by PokerStars, 'wann2play' was disqualified, the winner's $1.35 million share was redistributed to the rest of the prize pool, and 'eze88888' was bumped up to first place. The 'wann2play' account was frozen shortly after the $1.35 million victory and an investigation was launched by PokerStars. After roughly a year and a half had passed since the completion of the event in September 2018, the determination was made that 'wann2play' violated PokerStars’ terms of service. "Our players deserve a safe place to play online poker," Rebecca McAdam, Associate Director, Group Public Relations for PokerStars, said. "That's why we invest millions of dollars every year and have a large Game Integrity team working round the clock. A large part of the Game Integrity team's responsibility is to thoroughly investigate players who appear to disrupt that safe, fun, and enjoyable environment. If the case arises where we believe that a player is acting inappropriately, we use cutting-edge technology and practices to keep the game safe and distribute funds back to affected players as fairly and quickly as possible.

[ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] 'Eze88888,' who is from Bahía Blanca in the province of Buenos Aires in Argentina, and has been playing poker since 2009, told PocketFives that it "feels super good" to get the win and added prize money that comes with the ruling. 'Eze88888' said that he suspected something might be up during the later stages of the tournament. After the event was over, 'eze88888' spent time to review the event and also had conversations with some well-known players. That's when 'eze88888' became even more suspicious that something foul was at play. 'Eze88888' said he spent months of exchanging emails with PokerStars as the matter was looked into further. With being bumped up to first place, 'eze88888' was credited with the event's original first-place prize of $1.529 million. At the end of the 2018 WCOOP Main Event, 'wann2play' and 'eze88888' agreed to a heads-up deal, with 'wann2play' taking $1.352 million and 'eze88888' taking $1.257 million. The event's original first-place prize was $1.529 million, so 'eze88888' earned an additional $272,000 in prize money as a result of the disqualification. The 2018 WCOOP $5,200 Main Event attracted 2,044 entries and generated a prize pool north of $10 million. The final table including Linus 'LLinusLLove' Loeliger, Robby 'PlayaPlz' Lipkin, Michael 'mczhang' Zhang, and Noah 'Exclusive' Boeken. The last time a WCOOP champion was disqualified was in 2007. 'TheV0id' had originally been credited as winning the event's $1.22 million top prize, but it was ruled that 'TheV0id' violated the PokerStars terms of service. The account was registered to Natalie Teltscher, the sister of Mark Teltscher. PokerStars had determined that it was not Natalie Teltscher who had played on the account. After the DQ, Natalie Teltscher filed a lawsuit against PokerStars in an attempt to regain the winnings. The lawsuit was eventually dropped after Natalie Teltscher admitted she had not played in the 2007 WCOOP event, but rather someone else played on her account.
