  1. Over the past 50 years, for many, the World Series of Poker has grown into more than just a poker series. It’s become a pilgrimage of sorts. Players from all over the world head to Las Vegas to take their shot at battling against the best, bringing home a bracelet and possibly be crowned a World Champion. With the WSOP regularly taking place in the U.S., it’s no surprise that American players, far and away, have amassed the most bracelets in WSOP history. It’s nearly 20 times that of the next nearest country. But this year is different and the tables have turned. After the month of July, the focus of the bracelet chase will be handed over to GGPoker where the rest of the world will have the edge on grabbing gold as American players continue to be shut out of the global online poker scene. On GGPoker, players from nations from around the world who wouldn’t otherwise make it to the Rio this summer will be looking to add to their own poker resume while contributing to the WSOP legacy of their country. Brazil It’s no secret Brazilians love their poker. They also love playing online. In the history of PocketFives, four Brazilian players have climbed to the #1 worldwide ranking. But when it comes to the World Series of Poker, Brazil isn’t even in the top 10 countries when it comes to taking down WSOP events. Through the end of 2019, six players have earned a bracelet including one of those former #1-ranked online players, Yuri Martins Dzivielevski. Dzivielevski grabbed his first WSOP win just last year after taking down the $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Li 8 or Better event for over $213K. Dzivielevski, partypoker ambassador Joao Simeo, WSOP bracelet winner Andre Akkari, and GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos are just some of Brazil's top-flight talent that make it so it wouldn’t be unthinkable for Brazil’s total bracelet count to double in 2020. Canada The truth is, it’s been hard for Canada to compete for bracelets in the U.S. Not because of a lack of talent, there’s more than enough. But because of tax ramifications. When Canadians win at the WSOP they can lose as much as 30% to the US-Canada Tax Treaty, making it hard to be profitable in tournaments. That hasn’t stopped Canada from claiming the #2 spot with 60 total bracelets. Led by Daniel Negreanu and his six wins, Canada boasts numerous multi-time bracelet winners including Greg Mueller, Mark Radoja, Kristen Bicknell and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel, the first and only Canadian to hold that title. There’s a good chance for Canada to add to their legacy and strengthen their bracelet count in 2020. It’s well known that Negreanu, also a GGPoker ambassador, is going to charging hard for a bracelet with over $500,000 in bracelet bets on the line. Also online crushers like Bicknell, bracelet winner Mike Leah, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski, and recent PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker winner Mike Watson all have full reign to win without getting punished in the wallet simply for being great. United Kingdom Some of the most colorful characters to grace the World Series of Poker stage have come from the UK. Many of which have contributed to the country’s 51 bracelets. David ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, Luke Schwartz, Roland de Wolfe, Jake Cody, and Barny Boatman are just some of the legendary names that have posed for a WSOP winner’s photo and elevated the profile of poker in the UK. This year it will be a new crop of players who will lead the charge for England starting with the current #1 ranked online poker player in the world, Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. In fact, four of the top 20 online players in the world play from the UK including Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and Tyler ‘Wonderboy222’ Goatcher. In the history of the UK, only seven players have earned multiple bracelets and if there’s one player who is a favorite to join that club it would be high roller savant Stephen Chidwick. Chidwick, who holds a bracelet of his own, is one of the most talented tournament players in both the live and online arena. Provided he has the time, he could even have a shot at catching Benny Glaser, who holds the UK’s record as a three-time bracelet winner. Russia Russia and France both have 22 bracelets, but when it comes to playing online Russia gets a definitive edge. It’s impossible to forget the impact that Russian players have had on the World Series of Poker from Ivan Demidov’s runner-up finish the original November Nine for over $5.8 million to Vitaly Lunkin taking down the 40th WSOP Anniversary event for his second gold bracelet. But while Russia is another talent-rich country, it takes a lot of effort to make it from Moscow to the middle of the Amazon Room. While Dennis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov made the journey in 2019 and went home with a bracelet, many of the online crushers from Russia opt to grind online through the summer. It’s those players, like former #1-ranked ‘veeea’, who could break the tie with France this year and tack on to Russia’s total. That is unless Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier has anything to say about it. The truth is that for many countries, the series on GGPoker can really impact their gold bracelet standing. In China, there are four players who have won a bracelet. With GGPoker’s wide exposure to the Asian market, there’s a very good chance that that club will be adding some new members in 2020. There’s only one bracelet winner from Uruguay, Alex Komaromi, who won his at the WSOPE in 2015. Top-ranked players from Hungary, like ‘Wildace_hun’ have the chance to break a long-standing five-country tie of five bracelets. While none of these countries are going to make up much ground on the 1,1132 bracelets earned by Americans, the gold they take home this summer will be an important part of WSOP, and their countries, legacy in poker.
  2. A number of players hold a special place in the history of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. Former #1-ranked Calvin Anderson is the only player with 10 career SCOOP titles and on Saturday, Shawn Buchanan is his closest threat with six and more than a handful of players have won five each. On Saturday, Benny Glaser added his name to that list thanks to his win in Event #6 High ($2,100 8-Game). Glaser topped the 122-entry field to win $54,854 and an 8-Game SCOOP title for the second time in two years after winning Event #41 High ($1,050 8-Game) in 2019. Runner-up 'donthnrmepls' picked up $42,070 while 'at0216' earned $32,266 as the third place finisher. UK-based grinder 'com 157' had the single biggest score of the day, winning $128,391 for taking down Event #5 High ($1,050 No Limit Hold'em). Runner-up Dimitar 'KuuL' Danchev narrowly missed out on a six-figure runner-up consolation prize, taking home $94,888 for finishing second. Third place finisher Max 'mikki696' Lehmanski had to settle for $70,128. Two-time Sunday Million winner 'Lucky_Jew_17' pulled off a rare feat in Event #7 High ($530 NLHE PKO), winning more in bounties than first place paid. Finishing on top of the 1,893-entry field came with a $60,864 score and they collected another $63,768 in bounties. Diego 'Die Ventura' Ventura wasn't as fortunate, earning $60,863 from the prize pool and another $14,376 in bounties. 'Ervedosa' won $36,111 and $11,142 in bounties for coming in third. Alexander 'joiso' Kostritsyn took down Event #11 High ($1,050 No Limit 5-Card Draw PKO) for $9,198 and $14,468 in bounties. Runner-up 'Parasol6Ka' scored $9,198 and just $250 in bounties while Denis 'aDrENalin710' Strebkov won $5,882 and $4,094 in bounties for finishing on the final spot of the podium. The final High event on Saturday had 736 runners who fired a total of 612 rebuys and 470 add-ons to build a $369,054 prize pool. 'Eleres88' won the event outright for $62,622. Second place finisher 'conejin_20' picked up a $44,639 score and 'TheGrinderØ' added $31,820 to their bankroll for coming in third place. Other SCOOP winners on Saturday included 'corresao' (Event #5-Low) 'staanemer' (Event #5-Medium), 'Nr1InEurope' (Event #6-Low), 'fish_sah' (Event #6-Medium), 'YouGoBrokeOk' (Event #7-Low), 'Lackoo87gcb' (Event #7-Medium), 'PufuMiu' (Event #11-Low), 'MarkBang' (Event #11-Medium), 'Malicious20' (Event #12-Low), 'cassolGana' (Event #12-Medium), Event #5 (High) - $1,050 No Limit Hold'em Entries: 741 Prize pool: $741,000 com 157 - $128,391 Dimitar 'KuuL' Danchev - $94,888 Max 'mikki696' Lehmanski - $70,128 Consi11- $51,829 Kenny 'SpaceyFCB' Hallaert - $38,305 Easterdamn - $28,309 Rafael 'GM_Valter' Moraes - $20,922 disquesi! - $15,463 Josip 'Jozinho6' Simunic - $11,428 Event #6 (High) - $2,100 8-Game Entries: 122 Prize pool: $244,000 Benny 'RunGodlike' Glaser - $54,854 donthnrmepls - $42,070 at0216 - $32,266 joiso - $24,746 Jens 'Fresh_oO_D' Lakemeier - $18,979 Fake Love888 - $14,556 Phil 'flong78' Long - $11,164 Event #7 (High) - $530 NLHE PKO Entries: 1,893 Prize pool: $946,500 Lucky_Jew_17 - $60,864 + $63,768 in bounties Diego 'Die Ventura' Ventura - $60,863 + $14,376 in bounties Ervedosa - $36,111 + $11,142 in bounties Jesseonboss - $25,741 + $8,223 in bounties jenssegers36 - $18,349 + $4,418 in bounties Odonkor1 - $13,080 + $1,508 in bounties KkruchitAAs - $9,324 + $6,896 in bounties dadaking001 - $6,646 + $2,843 in bounties pochi - $4,738 + $1,262 in bounties Event #11 (High) - $1,050 No Limit 5-Card Draw PKO Entries: 78 Prize pool: $78,000 Alexander 'joiso' Kostritsyn - $9,198 + $14,468 in bounties Parasol6Ka - $9,198 + $250 in bounties Denis 'aDrENalin710' Strebkov - $5,882 + $4,094 in bounties Rui 'RuiNF' Ferreira - $4,397 + $2,375 in bounties sprocketsAA - $3,287 + $1,500 in bounties Ulett_23 - $2,457 + $2,438 in bounties Skint Paddy - $1,837 + $500 in bounties Event #12 (High) - $215 NLHE Turbo w/Rebuys Entries: 736 Prize pool: $369,054 Eleres88 - $62,622 conejin_20 - $44,639 TheGrinderØ - $31,820 Ahhh Is It? - $22,682 progre69 - $16,169 Jamil11 - $11,526 Felipe 'lipe piv' Boianovsky - $8,216 drupa-lucker - $5,857 Witalii - $4,175
  3. Denis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov has done it again. The PokerStars 2018 World Championship of Online Poker reached the halfway mark on Sunday and biggest story to this point is the amazing run of Russia’s Strebkov. On a day that featured the conclusion of 15 events, Strebkov earned himself his fourth overall WCOOP title. Strebkov topped the 136 runners in Event #21 High ($2,100 Eight Game), the two-day event that featured some of online poker’s top mixed game players. Strebkov took home $70,720 for the win and in doing so, secured his spot at the head of many of the WCOOP leaderboards. Currently, the Russian is sitting atop the High leaderboard, sits second on Medium and holds a sizable lead in the overall rankings. His victory last week in Event #20 Low ($11 No Limit 5 Card Draw) also has him inside the top 10 of the Low leaderboard, where he's currently tied for seventh. The #1-ranked online player in the world picked up his first WCOOP win of 2018. ‘lena900’ engaged in a lengthy heads-up battle with Russia’s ‘Ti0’ for the title in Event #27 Medium ($530 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha). In the end, ‘lena900’ closed it out and added another $58,228.20 to his bankroll, elevating him to over $11.5 million in lifetime earnings. ‘Ti0’s runner-up haul was $40,828.98, good for his largest cash since May 2017. Another notable first was the first WCOOP win for three-time World Series of Poker Bracelet winner Benny ‘RunGodLike’ Glaser. Glaser took down Event #27 Low ($55 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha) for just over $18,000. While Glaser was technically the winner, there was a four-way deal struck which gave Finland’s ‘AllMeMaybe’ the most money. He finished in fourth but walked with $18,562.43. The biggest winner of the day was Tom ’tjbentham’ Bentham who outlasted the 192 players that registered for Event #27 High ($5,200 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha). There were three players who walked with six-figure scores in this tournament, however, it was Bentham that home $191,476.72, the bulk of the $960,000 prize pool. German crusher Ole ‘wizowizo’ Schemion added another trophy to his already packed case with a victory in Event #33 High ($2,100 Six Max No Limit Hold’em). Schemion, one of the most successful tournament players in the world, added another $112,235.51 to his impressive list of cahses. PocketFiver Matthew ‘mjw006’ Wakeman also made an appearance at this final table, bowing out in third place for $61,665.73. With the third-place finish, the Australian finds himself on the cusp of $7 million in lifetime earnings. Additional PocketFivers that were WCOOP winners on Sunday include worldwide #11-ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone, Nick ‘FU_15’ Maimone, ‘wesko78’, 'Alonsas' and Andrei ‘Premove’ Skvortsov.
