  1. The time has come for Croatia's top-ranked online poker pro Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic to take his shot at the top spot. After a hot start to the year, Zufic’s results surged this summer and brought him career-defining scores and resume-topping titles. This week, he finally ascended all the way up to take over the worldwide #2 spot from Brazilian powerhouse Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon with only Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford left in his path. Early Returns At the start of the year, Zufic was spending most of his time playing mid-to-high stakes, looking to eclipse a $16,000 career-high score that he had set back in 2019. In April, he was ranked 83rd in the world when he picked up a title in the PokerStars EU Spring Championship of Online Poker for a little over $28,000. The win was not only a mile marker for Zufic but the start of a heater that lasted all summer long. He backed up his new SCOOP title by taking home another trophy in late March in the PokerStars.com SCOOP series. He bested the 630-entry field in Event #81-H ($530 NLHE, 6-Max) for a massive $61,202 score. Then four days later he grabbed a win in the World Series of Poker Circuit Series $250 Daily Special on GGPoker for another $10,965 bringing his weekly PLB point total to more than 631 and putting him as the #1-ranked player in Croatia. Red Hot Summer The hits kept coming for Zufic, who again put himself in a position to hit new career highs. Just one week after taking down the $250 WSOPC side event he did it again, this time in the June 1 edition of the $500 Sunday Main on GGPoker. He outlasted the tough 1,249-entry field to take home $93,755 first-place prize and a new spot inside the worldwide top-50. Zufic continued to rise in the rankings in the following weeks by taking down tough tournaments like the PokerStars $109 Sunday Kickoff and nabbing a podium finish in a WSOP Side Event. However, as good as it was going for him, the best for him was right around the corner. Gold Bracelet Glory Zufic’s poker career would never be the same after August 17 when he took down the 2,055-player field in the 2020 World Series of Poker Online $500 Mini Main Event for a life-changing score of $843,460, far-and-away a new career-high cash. Additionally, Zufic earned himself a place in WSOP history by becoming the first-ever player from Croatia to win a WSOP gold bracelet. Prior to the win, Zufic was ranked 29th in the world, but a win of such magnitude added 2,685.21 PLB points to his total, jettisoning him into the top 10 for the very first time. Even after all that success, Zufic kept on his grind and found success once again on GGPoker. In the September 14 edition of the High Roller MILLION$, Zufic struck gold again and added another $355,375 to his incredible year plus another 1,457.30 PLB. These two scores combined pushed him into the top 10, putting his name among the elite grinders. Throughout his success in some of the biggest tournaments of the summer, Zufic was still grinding a daily schedule. His work ethic can scene in the results which brought him three PocketFives Triple Crown awards this year. He booked his first three victories (on three different networks in the same week) on April 1. He did it again on June 1 as well as September 22, accomplishing a feat three times in the same year that many players will labor to do even once. Despite all his success this year, Zufic is going to need to keep his head down and put in the hours if he hopes to catch Beresford. The current #1-ranked UK grinder is known for putting in plenty of volume and, like Zufic, he is also in the midst of a career year. Currently, just under 2000 PLB points shy of Beresford, it will take some big-time results from Zufic in order to close the gap and for Zufic to make history. But with nine of Zufic’s top-10 career cashes coming this year, he currently has the momentum to possibly make it happen.
  2. With some of the biggest online poker series of the summer concluding last month, it should be no surprise that the PocketFives Monthy PLB race for September was packed with some of the best players the online poker world has to offer. When the dust settled on the World Series of Poker Online series and PokerStars’ 2020 World Championship of Online Poker, it was former #1-ranked grinder Chris ‘Gettin Daize’ Oliver who topped the leaderboard for his fourth career Monthly PLB title. Oliver kicked off September with a massive score on September 1 as he clinched a WCOOP title in Event #10-M ($1,050 NLHE 8-Max, Freezeout, Super Tuesday) for $164,398 and an even 1,000 PLB points. However, as impressive as that six-figure score was, it paled in comparison to his next result which not only made his month but topped his online poker career of more than 13 years. On September 8, he finished in fourth place the WSOP Event #83 ($10K WSOP Super MILLION$) on GGPoker for an online career-high cash of $548,450 plus 1284.49 PLB points. The cash breaks his previous record of $285,311 which he set all the way back in 2012 by finishing as the runner-up in that year's PokerStars TCOOP Main Event. With nearly 125 results in the month, Oliver amassed an amazing 5,161 PLB points which were more than enough to lock up the Monthly PLB award and put an exclamation point on one of his most profitable runs since joining PocketFives back in 2007. Oliver wasn’t the only former #1-ranked player to crack the top 5 in September. Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivielevski (3,909 PLB points) finished in the #2 spot and used his September results to continue his climb back into the elite worldwide rankings in an effort to reach the #1 spot he last held in 2015. Like Oliver, Dzivielevski’s month got off to a quick start. On September 1, he picked up one of his many WCOOP titles in Event #09-H ($1,050 NL 2-7 Single Draw) for $21,938 and he followed that up with a fifth-place finish in Event #10-M, the same event Oliver ended up winning, for $44,850. He continued his WCOOP dominance with another title run in Event #20-H ($1,050 HORSE) for $31,115. The biggest of his WCOOP wins came just one week later when Dzivielevski went the distance in Event #48-H ($5,200 NLHE, 8-Max, PKO, Sunday Slam) for $127,410 (plus $118,124.97 in bounties) and a monthly high 817.01 PLB points. That wasn’t the end of the Brazilian’s big month as he added a final table finish in the Super MILLION$ High Roller on Natural8 for another $185,350 which lifted his career online total earnings to over $7.75 million and a spot in the worldwide top-10 rankings, where he currently sits at #6. Fellow Brazilian crusher Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon (3,871 PLB points) wrapped up the month in the #3 spot, thanks to his deep run in one of the biggest heads-up competitions of the year. Coming off a final table finish in the WSOP $25,000 NLH Poker Players Championship where he walked away with over $388,000, Botteon’s confidence carried over to WSOP Event #79 ($25,000 Heads Up NLHE). He weaved his way through the 127 player field to make it to the finals where he ended up falling to Fedor Holz, but walked away with a career-high score of $622,300 and 1,161.52 PLB points. Just three days later, he added a WCOOP title to his resume by winning Event #36-H ($2,100 NLHE Midweek Freeze) for $80,642 and narrowly missed out on another WCOOP victory by finishing in second in Event #48-H ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max, PKO) for another $95,458. The sum of his efforts has made him the #1-ranked player in the poker hotbed of Brazil and he currently sits as the #2-ranked player in the world. Canada’s Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson (3,818 PLB points) put up consistent results in September, good enough to land him in the #4 spot. Watson went on a run in the second week of the month by first, finishing in third place in the September 7 edition of the Natural8 High Rollers Blade Mulligan for $71,691 and 388.91 PLB points. The next two days must have felt like a reoccurring dream as he finished in third place in WCOOP Event #34-H ($2,100 8-Game) for $25,073 on September 8. Then, the very next day, he notched another third-place finish in WCOOP Event #36-H ($2,100 NLHE Midweek Freeze) for $47,804. While Watson may not have grabbed a gold medal, he does currently sits as the #4 player in the world, a career-high ranking for him. The September top 5 wraps up with the current #1-ranked player in the world, Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford, finding himself on yet another leaderboard. Beresford, who is having a career year in 2020, saw his September highlighted by his first career WCOOP title when he won Event #33-H ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max, High Roller) for $162,674 and 880.34 PLB points.

  3. It wasn’t that long ago that a quick scan of the top ten online players in the world would be packed with some of Sweden’s most well-known online grinders. Names like ‘Lena900’, ‘C Darwin2’, Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar, and Robin ‘robinho’ Ylitalo routinely held down a number of the top spots in a constant battle to rule the online poker rankings. But after a summer of intense action at every major online poker site, the top tier of the worldwide rankings have a new country in control. Brazil boasts 25 of the top 100 players, and four of the country’s elite talent have cracked the top 10. Brazil's most recent rankings surge is led by Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon, who currently ranked as the #2 player in the world, right behind list leader Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. Botteon started off the year with an improbable day in early January where he finished as the runner-up in the PokerStars Winter Series $530 NLHE Main Event for $196,908 and at the same time came in third place in the Winter Series $5,200 NLHE Main Event for another $265,463. His one day total, which provided him his top two career cashes at the time, totaled more than $462,000. It turns out that it was just the beginning for Botteon. This summer, he continually made headlines with impressive results in some of the most high profile tournaments on the schedule. During the World Series of Poker $25,000 NLH Poker Players Championship, Botteon fought through the 407-entry field to make the final table where he finished in sixth place for what was new career-high cash of $388,837. Days later, he found himself in the finals of the WSOP $25,000 Heads Up NLHE event where he eventually fell to former #1-ranked pro Fedor Holz, but again reached new career highs with a $622,300 score. Although he just missed out on a WSOP gold bracelet, he quickly picked himself back up again and within the week, scored a PokerStars WCOOP title in Event #36-H ($2,100 NLHE Midweek Freeze) for another $80,642. Of Botteon’s six six-figure scores, five have come in 2020 and the accumulation of PLB points has put him as close to Beresford as anyone has been in months. Someone who knows what it’s like to hit that number #1 spot is Botteon’s countryman, Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivielevski who currently sits ranked #6 in the world. It’s been five years since Dzivielevski held the top spot but his impressive summer sun run has rocketed him back into ranks of the top 10. Dzivielevski has a history of success during the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, having won its Main Event back in 2014 for $1.253 million. This year, he struck gold three times including a six-figure score on September 13 in Event #48-H ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max, PKO, Sunday Slam) for which he took home $127,410 plus an additional $118,124 in bounties to create his second-largest online score of all time. Two days later, Dzivielevski found another major score to add to his resume when he took fifth place in the Super MILLION$ High Roller on Natural8 for another $185,350. Dzivielevski’s heater has seen him earn four of his top ten career score this year and has helped him push him past $7.75 million in career earnings. Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann has been a force in the top 100 for years, hitting his career-high rank of #5 in the world earlier this year. Currently situated at #7, Volkmann has produced consistent results this spring and summer to keep himself in the upper echelon of the rankings. In one incredible week this spring, Volkmann went on a run that produced three of the top 10 scores of his career. It started out with a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Event #64-H ($2,100 NLHE) for $79,295. Three days later he repeated the result, finishing in second place in SCOOP Event #73-M ($215 NLHE Sunday Warm-Up) for $82,739. Then, the very next day Volkmann took to Natural8 and had a final table finish in WSOPC Ring Event #8 High Roller Championship for $249,920, which currently remains his career-high cash. In total, for Volkmann, who has been recording his scores since 2012, nine of his top 25 cashes have come in 2020 and which has helped him add more than $4 million in career earnings in the past three years. The final Brazilian to claim a spot in the top 10 is Belarmino ‘Pagaovelhinho’ De Souza from Santa Catarina. De Souza’s 2020 campaign is easy to envy, replete with five and six-figure scores. His risk in the rankings can be traced back to the end of July when a pair of deep runs in the World Series of Poker Online provided him the PLB push he needed. In WSOP Event #35 ($5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship), De Souza finished in third place and grabbed a $156,687 score for what was his first career six-figure score. One week later, he nearly grabbed a gold bracelet once again but ended up as the runner-up in Event #44 ($2,500 NLHE 6-Handed) for a new career-high score of $261,249. De Souza’s summer earnings didn’t stop there as he took down the August 10 edition of the High Rollers Blade Mulligan on Natural8 for another $129,101. In just two short years, De Souza has gone from grinding stakes as small as $2.20 to winning SCOOP and Turbo Series titles and nearly taking home a gold bracelet. While these four players are currently vying for their turn in the top spot, there are plenty of talented Brazilian eager to take their place. Some of which have spent time in the top 10 before, like Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha, and some of which are looking for their big breakthrough, like WSOP bracelet winner Leonardo ‘LeoMattosAK’ Mattos. Although Beresford continues his grip on the top spot, with the top talent continuing to pour out of Brazil, it may just be a matter of time before a Brazilian seizes the #1 ranking for the first time since Joao Mathias held it back in 2016.
  4. Yuri ‘theNERDguy’ Dzivielevski is clearly enjoying his summer. The former #1-ranked online poker player in the world won his second World Series of Poker bracelet in late July and then a pair of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker titles in the first week of play. On Monday, the Brazilian superstar added another accolade to that list by winning a third WCOOP title. Dzivielevski outlasted 265 other players and then went one-on-one with fellow Brazilian and current #2-ranked Brunno Botteon for the title in Event #48 ($5,200 NLHE PKO Sunday Slam). Dzivielevski then sent Botteon to the rail in second place to secure his third WCOOP win over the year and fourth overall. The win came with more than $245,000 from the prize pool and bounties. He wasn't the only player to join the triple club on Monday. Tobias 'Senkel92' Leknes shipped event #49 Medium ($215 Six Max NLO8 PKO) for $13,469.76 and another $10,493.70 in bounties. Leknes previously won Event #9 Low ($11 NL 2-7 Single Draw) and Event #45 Low ($11 Six Max Badugi). He now sits third on the all-time WCOOP titles list with and trails only Shaun Deeb (eight titles) and Denis Strebkov (nine titles). 'girafganger7' just missed out on a six-figure score for taking down Event #47 High ($2,100 NLHE Sunday Warm Up). The UK-based high stakes MTT regular beat out 257 other players to win his third career WCOOP title and $99,311.22. Russian 'FONBET_RULIT' grabbed their second career WCOOP title on Monday night, outlasting 122 other entries in Event #49 High ($2,100 NLO8 Six Max PKO) to walk away with $27,651.72 from the prize pool and an additional $39,062.50 from bounties. For the second day in a row, 'deivid29' stood tall at the end of a WCOOP event. One day after shipping Event #42 High ($1,050 NLHE Afternoon Deep Stack), the Spaniard topped the 677-entry field in Event #50 High ($1,050 Six Max NLHE) to add $116,437.26 to his bankroll and another WCOOP title to his collection. Jonathan 'Corback_fr' Therme beat out 367 other players to win Event #46 High ($1,050 8 Max Freezeout) for $60,232.70 after chopping heads up with 'MaxHendrix'. This is Therme's first WCOOP title. Other players who won a WCOOP title on Monday include 'Muka82' (Event #46 Medium), '13 georgiev13' (Event #46 Low) 'topetersons' (Event #47 Medium), 'leoleo05' (Event #47 Low), 'labirint93' (Event #49 Low), 'Marrakesz' (Event #50 Medium), and 'gustavix320' (Event #50 Low).
