  1. 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.
  2. The World Poker Tour continues Season XVII of the WPT Main Tour on Friday, November 23, with the start of the WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The venue is home to the largest WPT Main Tour event in history, and this season’s event comes with a $2 million guarantee on the prize pool. The WPT RRPO $3,500 Championship runs November 23-28 and features two starting flights and unlimited reentry is allowed through the first nine levels. Per standard WPT Main Tour structure, players begin with 40,000 in chips, a big blind ante will be used, and the Action Clock will be entered into play once the field is one table off the money. Players will play 60-minute levels on Day 1 and Day 2 before the levels are kicked up to 90 minutes on Day 3 and Day 4. The final table of the event will be live streamed on WPT.com on Wednesday, November 28. WPT Events at Seminole Known for Huge Fields and Big Payouts The addition of the Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open to the World Poker Tour schedule is new, but the WPT has plenty of history with the host property, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, especially when it comes to $3,500 buy-in events. In addition to being home to the largest WPT Main Tour field in history, $3,500 buy-in WPT events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino have an average field size of 1,278 entries over the last seven. In those seven events, nearly $29 million in total prize money has been awarded, for an average prize pool of more than $4.1 million. The winner of that largest WPT Main Tour event in history was Eric Afriat, who topped an enormous field of 1,795 entries in the Season XII WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. The now two-time WPT champion Afriat won $1.081 million in that event. Other past champions of World Poker Tour events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino include Darryll Fish, Ryan Riess, Justin Young, Chino Rheem, and Taylor von Kriegenbergh. Von Kriegenbergh won the WPT event at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with the largest first-place prize in history. He took down the Season IX WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown for $1.122 million. Ruberto Leads Hublot WPT Player of the Year Race Heading In With a large field anticipated for the event, one of the storylines heading in is that of the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race for Season XVII. Two-time WPT champion Tony Ruberto currently leads with 1,800 points. Ruberto won his second World Poker Tour title this season when he captured the WPT Maryland at Live! Casino crown. He also made the final table of WPT Choctaw, placing fourth. In second place behind Ruberto is Erkut Yilmaz with 1,250 points, and then it’s Patrick Serda, Simon Lam, and Brady Holiman rounding out the top five with 1,200 points each. As the WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open $3,500 Championship has a $2 million guarantee on the prize pool, a minimum of 1,200 points will be awarded to the winner. Minimums of 1,000 points and 900 points will go to second and third places, respectively. The winner of the Hublot WPT Player of the Year for Season XVII will earn a $15,000 WPT Passport for buy-ins across the tour and a special Hublot watch. Appetizing Side Events During Championship During the dates of the Season XVII WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open $3,500 Championship, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has three side events with buy-ins above $1,650. First is the $1,650 Deep Stack Purple Chip Bounty tournament that comes with a $100,000 guarantee. This event runs November 25-26. On November 26, the $5,000 Eight-Handed tournament kicks off. It is scheduled as a one-day tournament with a $250,000 guarantee. Also starting on November 26 is the $2,200 Deep Stack PLO tournament that is scheduled for two days and allows reentry. Thousands Already Showing Up This year’s Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open is already off to an impressive start. The opening event of the series, the $360 Deep Stack Reentry tournament that boasted a $1 million guarantee, attracted 4,558 entries and generated a guarantee-busting prize pool of $1.367 million. The event was won by Texas’ Trung Pham for $123,364 after a seven-way deal at the final table.
  3. Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. Anatoly ‘nl_profit’ Filatov (#11) partypoker ambassador Anatoly ‘nl_profit’ Filatov has been knocking on the doorstep of the worldwide top 10 for all of 2019. This week, he’s gone as far as he can go without breaking through, working his way to his career-high ranking of #11 in the world. The Russian pro is well-known for his over $3 million in career life earnings, including his victory in the partypoker MILLIONS Russia Main Event for $944K, but his online grind is as good as anyone in the game right now. He finished as the runner-up in the February 3 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $41,499 and 327.23 PLB points. That same day he posted a third-place result in the partypoker Sunday High Roller for another $23,200. Filatov sits less than 100 points behind the #10-ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone. He needs just needs one or two more PLB qualifying scores to push him into yet another new career-high ranking and into the steep climb to the top spot. Filatov currently sits with over $4.3 million in career online earnings. Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro (#12) Legendary online nosebleed cash game grinder Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro has been finding plenty of success in online tournaments as of late and his results have helped him to climb one spot this week to a career-high ranking of #12 in the world. Finland’s #1-ranked player got a big PLB boost from his victory in Event #24 of PokerStars Turbo Series ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em Eight Max Progressive KO). He took home $56,225 and 570.96 PLB points for the score. It was a tidy week for Kelopuro who put in light volume but saw hefty results. He only racked up 10 total cashes, however, he managed to earn over $86,000. This was with the help of his bronze medal finish in the February 8 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily Supersonic for an additional $11,551. For Kelopuro, if he can bring in one more big-time score he may find himself in the same scenario as Filatov, breaking through to the top 10 for the first time. He sits only 97 PLB points behind #10-ranked Petrone, and less than that behind Filatov himself. Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann (#20) This is not Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann’s first time gracing the Movers And Shakers column as the Brazilian has been surging up (and down) the upper echelon of the rankings for months. This week he shot up eight positions, which was enough to overtake Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao as the #1-ranked player in all of Brazil. Volkmann’s PLB surge coincided with two victories last week. The first took place during the PokerStars.es Carnaval Series, Event #9 (€50 No Limit Hold’em Big Stack, Turbo, Six Max) for $14,887 and 323.62 PLB points. He followed that up with a win in the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Daily Warm-up for another $33,467/407.43 PLB points. In total, Volkmann picked up five PLB qualifying cashes to jump back into the worldwide top 25, landing at #20 this week. Volkmann has an outside chance to get back to his career high ranking of #16 if he finds his way back to the online tables by the end of the week. He sits only 5 PLB points behind Steve ‘MrTimCaum’ O’Dwyer at #19 and fewer than 200 points away from Chris ‘Getting Daize’ Oliver who holds down the #16 spot this week. ‘dartazzzz’ (#36) Lithuania’s #1-ranked ‘dartazzzz’ made a major leap back into the top 50 this week. His performance last week vaulted him 24 spots to land at #36 in the world. He picked up three PLB qualifying cashes, including a victory in the Event #6 of the PokerStars.es Carnaval Series (€250 Sunday Special Progressive KO Eight Max) for over $27,000 and 417.97 PLB points. He also bubbled the final table of the February 3 partypoker Sunday High Roller Grind for $3,560/112.33 PLB points. In total, ‘dartazzzz’ picked up over 30 cashes last week for a sum of just over $53,000. He just recently achieved the $4 million lifetime total milestone so his 2019 will be focused on climbing to the $5 million mark and fending off any of the other four Lithuanian’s that are battling it out in the top 100. This includes ’necgaidziai’ who just this week broke through into the top 100, landing at a career-high ranking of his own at #86. ‘nilsef’ (#40) Former top 20 German grinder ‘nilsef’ finds himself, once again, as the nation’s #1-ranked player. February 3 was a spectacular Sunday for 'nilsef' as he picked up three PLB qualifying scores, two of which were outright victories. It started with an 11th place finish in the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday Warm-up for $5,455 and 129.28 PLB points. He followed that up with the first of his victories in the PokerStars $44 Bounty Builder besting a field of 5,851 for $14,502/342.08 PLB points. 'nilsef' then wrapped that day up with another takedown of the PokerStars $82 No Limit Hold’em Hyper-Turbo for over $4,000/150.76 PLB points. He leapfrogs Arturs ‘Artschgamble’ Scerbaks, who climbed three spots this week himself, landing at #47. ‘nilsef’ has over $7.8 million in lifetime earnings, which places him at #34 on the All-Time Online Money List. Every week, PocketFives updates the complete Online Poker Rankings.
