The World Poker Tour Online Series on partypoker had a pair of 6-Max titles up for grabs on Thursday night and two players seized the opportunity to claim their second victory of the series. Russian online pro Alexandr Trofimov topped the 210-entry field in Event #53 ($1,050 NLHE 6-Max) to claim the $42,819 first-place prize and his second WPT Online title. Last week, Trofimov secured his first series win in Event #33 ($215 6-Max Weekender) where he earned $74,938.20 for first place. As a double WPT Online title winner, Trofimov continues to pad his incredible online resume which includes six PocketFives Triple Crowns, two PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker victories, and even an FTOPS win from back in 2011. In order to lock down the victory, Trofimov had to best Sweden’s Bertil Andreas Samuelsson in heads-up play. The battle didn't go Samuelsson's way and the Swede was forced to settle for $31,080 as the runner-up. Had Samuelsson prevailed, it would have been he who was crowed the two-time champion. Just a week ago, he took down Event #26 ($265 Mini NL Bounty Hunter) where he earned $33,314.98 for first plus an additional $25,718.91. Canadian pro Mike Watson climbed into third place which was good for $22,155. It was a busy Thursday for Watson who also picked up $265,000 in a runner-up finish to Viktor Blom in the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series which is also taking place on partypoker at the same time. David Ivers also grabbed his second victory of the WPT Online series with a win in the smaller Event #53 ($109 NLHE Mini 6-Max) for $17,286. Ivers won his first title in Event #30 ($55 Mini NL Turbo Bounty) where he picked up a total score of over $9,200. Just as in the larger 6-Max tournament, had runner-up Alessandro Valli ended up the winner, he also would have been crowed a two-time champ. Instead, Valli walked away with $12,382 for second place while Poland’s Patryk Poterek finished up in third place and booked an $8,191 score.

Eight more World Poker Tour Online series titles were handed out over the weekend including one for the UK’s Elliott Peterman who survived the multi-flight 6-Max Weekender to take home nearly a quarter-million-dollar payday. Sixty-nine players made it to the final stage of $1 million guaranteed Event #33 ($2,100 6-Max Weekender) but it was Peterman who outlasted the star-studded field to take home the $235,508 first-place prize. Also notching six-figure scores were Italy's Eugenio Peralta who won $174,816 as the runner-up and Alexandros Kolonias who picked up $125,649 for finishing in third. Russia’s Alexandr Trofimov topped the lower buy-in Event #33 ($215 6-Max Weekender) to take home a WPT title and the $74,938.20 first-place prize. Nicolas Yunis also turned his $215 buy-in into a healthy five-figure score cashing in for $56,589.60 as the runner up. Australia’s Luke Martinelli added $42,997 to his bankroll with a third-place finish. A pair of non-NLHE tournaments actually incurred some slight overlays for the series. First, Muriel Figueredo took full advantage of a $12,500 overlay in Event #35 ($1,575 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) by besting the 125-entry field for the $50,381.20 first-place prize. Erik Tamm wrapped up as the runner-up which was good for $34,000. Mikko Alho grabbed third place and $24,000 for his efforts. Event #35 ($162 Mini Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) just barely missed the target as the 265-entry field came up just $250 short of the $40,000 guarantee. Emrah Yildiz rose to the top to claim the $9,400 first-place prize while Quentin Krueger settled for second and $6,200. Antti Suominen ended up in third place and picked up $4,407.92. A pair of former #1-ranked PocketFivers were in position to take home a WPT title in Event #36 ($1,050 Mix-Max Tubro) as Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff battled it out in the top three. However, both ended up falling to Stewart Kirby who closed out the tournament and picked up $38,037.86 as the winner. van Zadelhoff earned $25,670 as the runner-up while Leonard added $18,120 to his over $9.7 million in career online cashes. Markus Pohl was the last man standing in Event #38 ($530 6-Max Turbo Bounty) having survived the 638-entry field and banking the $22,387.82 first-place prize. Add to that another $27,239.31 in bounties and Pohl wrapped up the weekend with a total score of $49,627.13. Finishing right behind him was Alessandro Valli who earned $22,355.83 and an additional $5,985.36 in bounties as the runner-up. Viliyan Petleshkov fell in third place which was good for $16,817.38 and an additional $5,257.81 in bounties.
