  1. The momentum from Sunday’s start of PokerStars 2021 Spring Championship of Online Poker carried over into Monday as four new players added a SCOOP High title to their poker resumes and the action was highlighted by a high roller final table packed with some of online poker’s most prolific players. There were no soft spots at the final table of Event 06-H ($10,300 NLHE, 8-Max High Roller) as Laszlo ‘omaha4rollz’ Bujtas outlasted the 116-entry field to take home the $254,255.57 first-place prize and the third SCOOP title of his career. Among the final table participants were Samuel ‘€urop€an’ Vousden, Dominik Nitsche, Artur ‘marathur1’ Martirosyan, and Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet. For the second night in a row, former #1-ranked Fedor ‘CrownUpGuy’ Holz was forced to settle for second place but walked away with a $196,994.91 payday. Michael ‘imluckbox’ Addamo finished in third, earning $152,629.90, and another former #1, Simon ‘C Darwin2’ Mattsson, fell in fourth place earning $118,256.31 which sends him over $17 million in career online earnings. The official SCOOP Kickoff tournament, Event 02-H ($530 NLHE, PKO) drew 1,321 runners to create a prize pool of $660,500. The winner was Montenegro’s Dejan 'dejanic357' Kaladurdevic who not only earned the $43,752.65 first-place prize and an additional $34,653.56 in bounties but also became the very first player from his country to win a SCOOP title. Kaladurdevic defeated Brazil’s ‘Alex Bez’ in heads-up play, who finished with $43,751.12 and an additional $21,872.42 in bounties for second place. The UK’s ‘dougiedan678’ captured the bronze for $25,958.60 plus $12,182/35 in bounties. Event 03-H ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, Sunday Warm-Up SE) bested the $500K guarantee as 669 runners pushed the prize pool to $669,000. In the end, it was Romania’s ‘kreiNt’ who took down the tournament and grabbed $113,891.16 for first. ‘KayhanMok’ finished as the runner-up for $83,403.49 while ‘L_Cesk’ from Greece rounded out the top three and took home $61,077.42 for third. Right behind them were a pair of high roller MTT specialists in Mikita ‘fish2013’ Badziakouski who finished in fourth place for $44,727.73, and Timothy ‘Tim0thee’ Adams who fell in fifth for $32,754.64. Event 05-H ($2,100 Pot Limit Omaha, 6-Max) was the only tournament of SCOOP 2021’s opening events to miss its guarantee. And it just barely missed, drawing 192 runners, just eight players shy of hitting the $400,000 guarantee. All the better for the players including the UK’s ‘Zero 1100101’ and ‘d.apollo777’. When it got to heads-up, the countrymen agreed on a deal that had ‘Zero 1100101’ walk away with $76,488.47 and the SCOOP title while ‘d.apollo777’ locked up $63,600.37. Just missing out on the deal was Sweden’s ‘sat1337en’ who finished in third place and took home $45,585.88. Also of note, on Sunday night, Event 07-H ($2,100 NLHE, 7-Max, Turbo PKO, Sunday Cooldown) wrapped up with current #18-ranked Maskim ‘MAMOHT_T’ Mamonov taking down the title and a total of $88,727.52 for first. Fedor Holz wrapped up as the runner-up and took home a total of $42,539.98 while Finland’s ‘Uivelo88’ finished in third for $24,179. Other winners on Monday included 'kilrogg94' (Event #2-M), 'emsbigbob25' (Event #2-L), 'Karl-King77' (Event #3-M), 'Westik1' (Event #3-L), 'Nethos' (Event #4-M), 'PIPQQUEER' (Event #4-L), 'Marcelinhobf' (Event #5-M), 'neto_gol' (Event #5-L), 'ludako123' (Event #6-M), 'neto_gol' (Event #5-L), 'Fabahaba' (Event #7-M), and 'Diegops_AKs' (Event #7-L).

  2. There’s not a single year-end list that won’t be heavily influenced by the pandemic, and this one is no different. Nearly every industry faced overwhelming challenges in the face of COVID-19, the same was true for poker. As live poker events took a backseat to an online poker surge, some of this year’s brightest rising stars had career-making moments take place while playing online in the strangest of times. While there were plenty of poker players (and personalities) who succeeded in continuing their poker pursuits in 2020, these are our five Rising Stars who took what this year gave them and used it to step into the spotlight. Brunno 'bbotteon' Botteon Some in South America knew what Brazilian poker powerhouse Brunno Botteon had to offer, but after a year where Botteon seemingly never cooled off, now the whole poker world knows how great he really is. In 2020, no matter the online series, no matter the stakes, Botteon found a way to thrive. At the end of 2019, Botteon could regularly be seen playing mid-stakes, with the occasional high roller mixed in. That all began to change at the very start of 2020. In early January, on the same day at the same time, he finished as the runner-up in the PokerStars Winter Series $530 Main Event for $196,908 and third place in the Winter Series $5,200 Main Event for another $265,463. The hot start to his year set him up to make deep runs in many of the marquee series that made the move online when forced to postpone their live events. During the World Series of Poker Online events on GGPoker, Botteon found himself in the mix for a bracelet in some of the most prestigious events of the series. After he finished as the runner-up in Event #67 ($500 NLHE) for $41,855, Botteon made another final table in the $25,000 NLHE Poker Players Championship. He ended up finishing in sixth for $388,837 for what was, at the time, a career-high cash. He bested that just days later when he made it to the finals of the WSOP $25,000 Heads Up Championship. He finished in second place, just behind German superstar Fedor Holz, for a new career-high score of $622,300. Botteon then turned his attention to the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker where he picked up his second career title in Event #36-H ($2,100 NLHE Midweek Freeze) for $80,642. He also finished as the runner-up in Event #48-H ($5,200 8-Max PKO) for another $95,458. By this time, Botteon had soared in the rankings and was sitting as the #3-ranked player in the world and was regularly competing and cashing in the biggest buy-in tournaments online. However, as much as Botteon had already achieved in 2020, he decided to save the best for last. Botteon weaved his way through the international leg of the 2020 World Series of Poker hybrid Main Event, taking the chip lead into the live final table. The Brazilian made his way to Rozvadov where, in the end, he finished in second place to Damian Salas, but locked up his first career seven-figure score of $1,062,723. It was the third time in 2020 that Botteon set himself a new career-high cash and, in total, in his first WSOP experience, Botteon earned more than $2.16 million. Sitting with more than $5.2 million in lifetime online earnings (excluding his WSOP Main Event haul) Botteon’s tenacity at the tables has helped him into online poker history as one of the elite few who has reached the top of the worldwide rankings. On December 12, Botteon finally became the #1-ranked player in the world, capping off an incredible year for one of 2020’s biggest breakout stars. Artur ‘marathur1’ Martirosyan Also known by his screen name ‘marathur1’, Russia’s Artur Martirosyan took his career to the next level in 2020 after capturing multiple titles and big-time cashes. During the Poker Masters Online series in April, Martirosyan narrowly missed out on winning the Purple Jacket after cashing in nine of the 30 high roller event events for a total profit of $551,674. Just weeks later Martirosyan’s heater extended into the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker where he took down Event #17 ($10,300 NLHE 8-Max High Roller) for over $271,000. Days later he grabbed his second title of the series in Event #19 ($5,200 NLHE Midweek Freeze) to add another $157,426 to his ever-expanding bankroll. In June, he was back dominating another Poker Central series when Martirosyan took a series victory in the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series. He made six final tables, eight cashes overall, over the series' 27 events and he earned just under $1.8 million for his efforts. He wasn't done. After a deep run in the World Poker Tour World Online Championships Main Event, he took down the WPT Mini Super High Roller for $239,500 which led to the Russian being named player of the series and winning an additional $50,000 for topping the leaderboard. Landon Tice When you make the leap from online micro-stakes to playing in some of the biggest live games Las Vegas has to offer in a matter of just a couple of years, people are going to take notice. That is exactly what 21-year old Landon Tice has done and his story, and talent, brought youthful energy and excitement to poker 2020. For those that follow poker closely it was hard not to encounter Tice in some form or another, from his on-stream appearances with Joey Ingram to guest co-hosting the Solve For Why podcast with Matt Berkey and Christian Soto, Tice took little time letting his personality shine in the poker media. At the same time, Tice's poker game has reportedly been taken under the wing of the likes of Nick Schulman, Andrew Lichtenberger, and Berkey among others. Tice's Las Vegas cash game exploits at the higher limits were recounted and analyzed on podcasts and social media. At the same time, he quickly proved that his talent translated to the tournament scene as well. Tice took down one of the few major live tournaments to take place this year, besting a field of 1,123 entries in the 2020 MSPT Venetian Main Event for a $201,529 first-place payday. And if the World Series of Poker is able to be run in its traditional form in 2021, one should expect to see a lot more of Landon Tice in the chip counts. Ryan Depaulo When it comes to seizing the spotlight in 2020, perhaps no one did it better than Ryan Depaulo. With his star already on the rise from his popular YouTube channel Ryan Depaulo: Degenerate Gambler, the New York pro successfully pulled off one of the most improbable WSOP gold bracelet victories of the year. In order to play WSOP Online Event #13 ($500 No Limit Hold’em, The Big 500), Depaulo drove his car to a Whole Foods parking lot in New Jersey in order to “borrow” a little internet. From the front seat of his car, Depaulo played all night and reached the final table. When he got there, he dominated. Depaulo eliminated six of his final eight opponents and grabbed the gold bracelet and a $159,563 score as the sun rose over the hood of his car. https://twitter.com/depaulo_ryan/status/1282600527839334400?s=20 After he locked up the win, Depaulo, stunned, jumped out of his car and as the Whole Foods employees were coming in to start their morning shift he screamed out loud “I’m a Legend!” He may not yet be a full-blown poker legend yet but if he continues to pull off insane feats like this one he might just be on his way to becoming one. Jeff Platt It would be fair to say that poker commentator Jeff Platt could have, and rightfully should have, been named a rising star a year ago. Maybe he was and if so, it would have been true. But in 2020, Platt found the opportunity to level up in poker once again by becoming one of the premier faces and voices of some of this year’s most-watched poker streams on Twitch. If Nick Schulman is the current GOAT when it comes to poker commentary, then Platt is the People’s Champion. Platt seemed to be everywhere he was needed in 2020. From grabbing a glass of wine and anchoring the WSOP pre-final table broadcast throughout the summer, to holding down the GGPoker Twitch stream during the Polk-Negreanu challenge, you could count on Platt to be a consummate pro juggling talking thru the action with indulging the chat. With so many events taking place online this year, plenty of content creators have taken a stab in the commentary booth, with varying degrees of success. But it’s Platt’s professionalism that will likely put him in line for more and more work in the poker industry for years and years to come.
  3. The PokerStars EPT Online series wrapped up on Thursday after Sweden’s ‘WhatIfGod’ was crowned the champion of the $5,200 NLHE Main Event and walked away with the $1,019,082 million first-place prize. The first-ever EPT Online looked to bring players similar offerings to that of one of their popular live stops which have been understandably postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And over the past two weeks, some of the world’s top online poker talent packed the PokerStars lobbies to battle for a piece of the $21.1 million in total prize money that was spread out over the series’ 20 events. The Main Event After four days of play, the final nine players reconvened to fight for the biggest prize of the series and the right to be called EPT Main Event Champion. The first three eliminations happened in short order as ‘vip25459’ fell was the first to fall, busting out ninth place for $78,797. Soon after busting ‘vip25459’, online poker legend Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet hit the rail in eighth place ($97,344) when he lost a huge flip holding [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"] against ‘VbV1990’s [poker card="js"][poker card="jd"]. Then Andreas ‘daskalos20’ Christoforou busted in spectacular fashion when he got his [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"] all in preflop against David ‘MissOracle’ Yan’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"]. The flop came [poker card="ks"][poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"] and when the [poker card="3c"] hit the river, Christoforou was drawing dead. He settled for seventh place and $136,147. Play slowed down at six-handed until Enio ‘Bozzano JNR’ Bozzano suffered a bad beat in sixth place ($190,419) as Yan again came from behind and cracked Bozzano’s [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"] with his [poker card="qh"][poker card="qd"]. Russia’s Viacheslav ‘Vbv1990’ Buldygin was the next to exit when he moved all-in with [poker card="ac"][aj] and was called by ‘WhatIfGod’s [poker card="8h"][poker card="8d"]. The pocket eights held and Buldygin was eliminated in fifth place for $266,323. Not long after, ‘tikidiii’ busted in fourth place when he open-shoved his [poker card="js"][poker card="th"] into Timothy ‘Tim0thee’ Adams who showed down [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"]. Adams’ pocket eights flopped a set and held through the river as ‘tikidiii’ fell in fourth place for $372,485. The experienced final three players battled for roughly thirty minutes before Yan became short-stacked after he was called on a bluffed missed flush draw. Unlike earlier in the tournament when he was able to chip up from the short stack, Yan was unable to recover. He shoved his remaining 16 big blinds in the middle holding [poker card="td"][poker card="th"] against Adams’ [poker card="ac"][poker card="4s"]. Although the tens held to the turn, the [poker card="as"] spiked on the river, shipping the pot to Adams and sending Yan home with a third-place $520,966 payday. Despite both being deep-stacked, Adams and ‘WhatIfGod’ had a brief heads-up battle of just seven hands. It came to a head when Adams raised the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="9d"] and ‘WhatIfGod’ three-bet with [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"]. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4h"] which brought a bet from ‘WhatIfGod’ which Adams called. The turn came the [poker card="8s"] and ‘WhatIfGod’ checked it over to Adams who put in a bet of his own. ‘WhatIfGod’ called. The case ace, the [poker card="ac"], fell on the river and ‘WhatIfGod’ checked again. Adams then shoved his remaining stack and was called by ‘WhatIfGod’ who used his [poker card="tc"] to outkick Adams and clinch the championship. Adams earned $728,633 as the runner up and ‘WhatIfGod’ locked down the seven-figure $1,019,082 first-place prize. EPT Online Main Event Final Table Payouts [table id=123 /] Series Highlights The series got off to a fast start as EPT Online Event #1 ($1,050 NLHE, Arena Championship) racked up a total of 2,426 entries to shatter the $1.5 million event guarantee to the tune of a $2,426,000 prize pool. After four days of play, ‘DON JOHAN’ walked away with a $356,769 payday setting the stage for a series that promised players big-time payouts throughout. While not the first tournament numerically, EPT Online Event #3 ($5,200 NLHE, 8-Max, High Roller) was the first to reach the finish line and, in the end, it was David ‘MonkeyBausss’ Laka that became the answer to the trivia question “Who was the first EPT Online Champion?” Laka outlasted a talent-packed final table that included former #1-ranked pros Chris ‘ImDaNuts’ Oliver and Artem ‘veeea’ Vezhenkov as well as current #2-ranked player from Croatia Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic to lock up the $143,567 score. After a three-handed deal was made in EPT Online Event #4 ($530 NLHE), former PokerStars Team Online member Tatiana ‘Mysters_Y’ Barausova took home a trophy, surviving the field of 1139 runners and earning herself $74,951 in the process. The final table of EPT Online Event #6 ($10,300 NLHE, 8-Max, High Roller) was a who’s who of online poker. Belarusian crusher Mikita Badziakouski and Mathias Eibinger made a deal heads-up that saw both players take home just over $221,000 but it was Badziakouski who will receive the trophy. 2020 WSOP NLHE PPC Champ Christian Rudolph finished in third place on a final table that included October PLB winner Daniel ‘SmilleThHero’ Smiljkovic, Canada’s #1-ranked pro Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson, Timothy ‘Tim0thee’ Adams, and current #1-ranked player in the world Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. Also at the final table of Event #6 was high-stakes pro Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens who finished in seventh place for $51,445. A good result to be sure, but it was the beginning of a few days that found him locking up not one, but two EPT Online titles. First, in EPT Online Event #8 ($2,100 NLHE, 8-Max) he struck a deal with Greece’s Alexandros ‘Pwndidi’ Theologis heads up which locked up a $87,984 payday and the trophy. Three days later he bested Michael ‘Imluckbox’ Addamo heads up in EPT Online Event #15 ($10,300 Turbo, 6-Max, High Roller) to take home another $186,238 score. EPT Online Event #10 ($25,000 Super High Roller) had 81 entries fighting over a piece of the $2,000,000 prize pool. Finnish pro Eelis ‘EEE27’ Parssinen denied the victory to likes of Christian Rudolph, Benjamin ‘bencb789’ Rolle, Joao Vieira, and Artur Martirosian and took home $539,819 for first, the largest prize outside of the Main Event. PokerStars popular 6+ Hold’em (aka Short Deck) was on display in EPT Online Event #13 ($10,300 6+ Hold’em, High Roller) when Canadian crusher Sam Greenwood topped the small field of 41 entries to add $177,599 to his more than $11.6 million in lifetime career online earnings. One of Brazil’s best and brightest online stars, Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha blasted through the 818 entries of EPT Online Event #18 ($1,050 NLHE, Turbo) to capture the $138,358 first-place prize, a top-5 career score for the longtime grinder. In the final event of the series, former World Series of Poker final tablist Damian Salas used his last chance to pick up a six-figure score by winning EPT Online Event #20 ($1,050 NLHE Last Chance) for $117,475, the second-largest online win of his career. EPT Online Event Winners [table id=121 /] With the big buy-in tournaments of the EPT Online behind them, PokerStars next series caters to the other side of the poker pyramid. The MicroMillions series kicks off on November 19 and runs through November 29.
  4. Ole Schemion, Matthew Ashton, and Artur 'mararthur1' Martirosyan highlighted the 18 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker winners on a jam-packed Monday of action. Fresh off of a Poker Masters series where he had the fifth-highest net winnings, Artur 'mararthur1' Martirosyan went toe-to-toe with Fedor Holz in Event #17 High ($10,300 NLHE 8-Max High Roller) and came out on top.

  5. Ireland’s Daniel Smyth won his way into the World Poker Tour Online Knockout Championship for just $33 and ended up turning that into a score of $413,392.75, a ticket to the WPT Tournament of Champions, and a date to have his name engraved on the WPT Mike Sexton Champions Cup. Smyth, who has a little more than just $47,000 in live recorded earnings, topped the 1,035-entry field by leaning on his online experience that led him to a win in the PokerStars Sunday Million back in 2010. But even though Smyth may have been in his element playing online, getting the win was no easy feat as he was surrounded by some of today’s brightest stars at the final table. World Series of Poker Main Event champion Ryan Reiss, Russian crusher Artur ‘marathur1’ Martirosian, and German superstar Manig Loeser were just a few of the final eight players that stood in his way. It took nearly thirty minutes of final table play to lose the first player. Brazil’s Joao Mauteli opened under the gun holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"] and was prompty shipped on with the short stack of fellow countryman Matheus Resende and his [poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"]. Maureli made the quick call and took the lead when the flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="7c"][poker card="6h"]. The [poker card="5h"] turn and [poker card="5s"] river couldn’t help Resende’s pocket queens and he exited in ninth place for $19,483.87 and $13,242.18 in bounties. With fewer than 10 big blinds, Kazakhstan’s Shyngis Satubayev shipped his stack holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="8h"] from the hijack. Pedro Marques made the call from the button holding [poker card="as"][poker card="6s"] and both blinds let their hands go. The flop came [poker card="ad"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4d"] giving Marques top pair and leaving Satubayev looking for running cards. The [poker card="td"] turn left Marques drawing dead to the [poker card="6h"] river. Satubayev was eliminated in eighth place for $23,504.85 and just $750 in bounties. Forty-five minutes later Smyth found himself with just 10 big blinds and he moved all-in on the button holding [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"] and was snap called for less by Ryan Riess in the big blind who had [poker card="7d"][poker card="7d"]. Riess, all in for his tournament, needed help instantly as the [poker card="qc"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5c"] flop gave Smyth a flopped flush. The [poker card="6h"] turn gave Riess some full house outs, but the [poker card="2d"] was not one of them and the one-time WSOP Main Event champ fell in seventh place for $29,699.32 and $18,562.50 in bounties. It only took a few hands after Riess’s departure for Martirosian to find himself all-in. The Russian raised for half his 12 big blind stack from under the gun holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="ts"]. Marques three-bet shipped his 30 big blind stack on the button with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"] and when folded back to him, Martirosian called for his tournament life. The board ran out [poker card="5h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="kd"][poker card="jh"][poker card="5d"] missing all of Martirosian’s outs. He adds $47,281.38 and another $16,593.75 in bounties to his significant 2020 online earnings. After nearly an hour-and-a-half of five-handed play, Portugal’s Marques put in a raise with [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"] on the button and Loeser promptly three-bet him from the small blind holding [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"]. When it folded back to Marques he put in the rest of his 20 big blind stack and Loeser made the call. The flop came [poker card="2c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="td"] leaving Marques searching for a lot of help to stay alive. The turn came the [poker card="qh"], opening up a gutshot straight for Marques. The [poker card="9d"] hit the river, and Marques turned his $320 satellite win into $66,687.63 and another $22,382.80 in bounties. It didn’t take long for Loeser to claim another bounty. From the small blind Loeser put in a small raise with [poker card="ah"][poker card="td"], which opened the door for the Netherlands’ Pim Gieles to three-bet holding [poker card="as"][poker card="7d"]. Back on Loeser, he wasted no time in four-bet shipping his big stack and, dominated, Gieles committed the last of his stack. The duo watched as the board ran out [poker card="ad"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="8s"][poker card="9h"] and Gieles falls in fourth for $95,502.03 and $23,478.51 in bounties. Like Smyth, Maureli was also in this $3,200 buy-in tournament for a fraction of the cost. The Brazilian, who entered the final table as the chip leader, won his way in by taking down the $22 buy-in Mini Masters which gave him not only a $4.2K score but also a free $3,200 ticket. He used that on the Knockout, hoping to pick up some bounties should he not cash. But he found himself three-handed with a six-figure score guaranteed. With 20 big blinds, Maureli moved all-in from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="4d"]. Smyth snapped him off holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"] in the big blind and the two satellite winners saw a [poker card="tc"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5d"] flop which kept Smyth in the lead. The [poker card="8d"] turn changed nothing and the [poker card="9d"] river send Maureli to the rail in third place, turning his original $22 buy-in into $142,061.51 and $32,449.23 in bounties. The heads-up battle between Smyth and Loeser lasted over an hour with the chip lead passing back-and-forth between the two players multiple times. After winning a critical flip for his tournament life, Smyth came roaring back and seized the chip lead. On the final hand, with just 15 big blinds left, Loeser shoved on the button with [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"] which put Smyth to a decision with his [poker card="ks"][poker card="9h"]. After taking a few extra seconds, Smyth made the call with the championship on the line. The flop came [poker card="ts"][poker card="as"][poker card="4c"] keeping Smyth in the lead. The [poker card="9d"] gave Smyth a pair, but opened a backdoor for Loeser to hit and open-ended straight draw. The [poker card="4d"] was no help to the German high roller and Manig Loeser finished in second place for $208,492.98 plus an additional $70,866.22. As the winner of the World Poker Tour Online Knockout Championship, Daniel Smyth earned the $208,803.83 first-place prize, an additional $204,588.92 in bounties, and the honor of having his name engraved on the WPT Mike Sexton Champions cup.
