It's time for another look at the legal U.S. online poker scene, with results from WSOP.com, PokerStars, and partypoker across Nevada, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Memorial Day Weekend didn't slow down the online poker action around the U.S., as several big prizes were won on the virtual felt. Leading the way was Giusseppe 'Pantalette' Pantaleo's victory in the WSOP.com Money May Series Main Event that earned Pantaleo almost $60,000. Other big results were had by Nick 'Maggs' Olivieri and David 'dehhhhh' Coleman. The WSOP.com Money May Series Main Event drew a field of 494 entries and 254 entries to create a prize pool of $374,000. Pantaleo finished on top and took home $59,615.60. He beat Jonathan 'jonmon101' Miller in heads-up play, and then Gordon 'Gmoney227' Eng took third and Josh 'YoelRomero' King placed fourth. All of the top four finishers picked up more than $20,000 in prize money. In the WSOP.com $100,000 GTD NL Player Appreciation, a field of 1,027 entries and 696 entries generated a $158,516 prize pool. Winning the event for $34,080.94 was Olivieri. Ari 'philivey' Engel took fourth for $9,035.41. Also of note, 'TheDawn' placed seventh in the event for $4,279.93. 'TheDawn' also finished eighth in the Money May Series Main Event for $8,153.20.

Coleman topped Angel 'chromeking' Lopez in heads-up play, with Zachary 'Dabledore7' Lipeles taking third. Lopez earned $25,093.96 and it wouldn't be the last time we heard from him on Sunday. Lipeles won $18,797.26 for this score, which came in addition to the $14,174.60 he won for taking sixth in the Money May Series Main Event.

In this event, Romero, who had placed fourth in the Money May Series Main Event, took fifth for $4,962.34.

There was a heads-up deal made and in the end, 'ATMEric' won $16,074 for first place and 'munson42082' took $14,381.51 for second. The PokerStars PA Sunday High Roller [6-Max] saw a field of 202 entries get topped by 'aldrich801' for $7,528.38. He actually didn’t win the most money from the event, though. A heads-up deal was made with 'tobykeith121,' who ended up with $8,411.78 for second place. In the PokerStars PA Nightly Stars event, 'soccerdad29' won it for $5,672.62.

When the 2020 World Series of Poker Online schedule came out it was clear that Event #4 was designed with fireworks in mind in more ways than one. Event #4 ($500 Super Turbo NLHE) was designed to finish quickly so players could get outside on July 4th in Las Vegas and the quick pace of the event meant things moved along quickly. Those July 4th celebrations didn't seem to stop the players from turning out. There were 828 unique entries who fired a total of 351 rebuys to create a $530,550 prize pool. The event took just five hours and 48 minutes to play down to winner. The final table started with an average stack of just 10 big blinds. Holding nine big blinds, Jason 'Daluxxx' Luxenberg shoved for 3,554,584 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"] from UTG+1. Action folded to Brian 'XcrazylegsX' Frasca who moved all-in for 5,081,808 on the button with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="qh"][poker card="th"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="4d"] to give Frasca top set and eliminate Luxenberg in ninth place. Just five minutes later, Kevin 'ImALuckSac' MacPhee lived up to his screenname and it led to the elimination of Shawn 'Saygoodnight' Daniels. MacPhee moved all in for 2,833,565 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="qs"] only to have Daniels call all in for 1,652,932 from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="ks"]. The [k][q][t] flop gave MacPhee top two pair but left Daniels drawing live to an ace or a jack. The [poker card="5h"] turn and [poker card="2s"] river were both bricks and Daniels was sent to the rail in eighth place. This was the second final table of the 2020 WSOP for Daniels after he finished fourth in Event #1 ($500 No Limit Hold’em Kickoff) for $42,060. Ryan 'Whosyourdodd' Dodd got to stick around for another six minutes before he was exiting stage right. Dodd moved all in from the button for 3,591,334 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"] and Frank 'spaghettiii' Marasco called from the big blind with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="th"] to miss Dodd entirely and give Marasco a rivered top set. Dodd was out in seventh place. Down to just over two big blinds, Bode move all in for 2,129,268 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"]. Marasco then shoved for 13,068,178 with [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"], and 'DrJayTrotter' called all in for his last 1,048,964 wiht [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2d"] flop gave Bode top pair. The [poker card="2s"] turn and [poker card="as"] river were both bricks for 'DrJayTrotter' and they were eliminated in sixth place. Bode then picked up another victim. Down to 1.5 big blinds, MacPhee moved all in from UTG for 1,776,726 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"] Bode called from the small blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="4d"][poker card="4s"] flop gave Bode top pair and MacPhee was unable to get any relief through the [poker card="3d"] turn and [poker card="9s"] river and was denied a third WSOP bracelet with a fifth place result. The fast pace of eliminations continued and Bode was more than happy to be the one doing the work. Bode moved all in from the small blind for 12,342,242 with [poker card="ts"][poker card="7d"] and Marasco called all in for his last 5,213,910 from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="6h"]. The [poker card="td"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"] flop left Marasco needing a hail mary to stay alive but the [poker card="kd"] turn and [poker card="jd"] river were no help. Marasco was eliminated in fourth place. A few minutes later, Frasca sent the tournament to heads-up. Frasco moved all in from the small blind for 20,135,952 with [poker card="jd"][poker card="2s"] and 'KTUUUH' called all in for 1,745,872 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="8s"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Frasco bottom pair and that held up through the [poker card="9h"] turn and [poker card="as"] river and 'KTUUUH' was eliminated in third. Frasca had a 2-1 chip lead when heads-up play began but over the course of eight hands, Bode found himself holding all of the chips. On the final hand of the night, Frasca moved all in for 13,593,648 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"] and Bode called with [poker card="qd"][poker card="7d"]. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="3d"][poker card="jc"][poker card="7s"] to give Bode trip sevens to eliminate Frasca and capture his first career WSOP bracelet and $97,091. Final Table Payouts Matt Bode - $97,091 Brian Frasca - $59,952 'KTUUUH' - $42,603 Frank Marasco - $30,772 Kevin MacPhee - $22,389 'DrJayTrotter' - $16,500 Ryan Dodd - $12,362 Shawn 'Saygoodnight' Daniels - $9,338 Jason 'Daluxxx' Luxenberg - $7,162 Hellmuth Cashes Again Phil Hellmuth finished in 37th place finish for $1,963.03 to go along with 11th place finish for $7,872 from Event #1. He wasn't the only familiar face to wind up in the money on Saturday night. Ryan 'KOVID19' Ko (14th - $4,403.56), Ari Engel (16th - $3,501.63), Tim 'unorth0dox' Reilly (17th - $3,501.63), Bryan 'Pellepelle' Piccioli, Event #3 champion Robert 'bustinballs' Kuhn (33rd - $2,334.42), and Yong 'LuckySpewy1' Kwon ($75th - $1,061.10) were just a handful of players who earned a positive result.
Although there has been some discussion of live poker venues reopening in the United States, this weekend the real action remained online. Online grinders across New Jersey, Nevada, and Pennsylvania enjoyed some of the largest prize pools of the summer over the weekend, including the over $500,000 up for grabs in the Main Event of the WSOP.com Online Finale Circuit. New Jersey’s Frank ‘spaghettiii’ Marasco outlasted the 718 players (391 rebuys) of the $525 buy-in WSOP.com Online Finale Circuit Main Event to take home a career-high score of $127,535 and a spot in the WSOP Online Global Casino Championship. This is Marasco’s second Circuit win of the year, having captured a gold ring during the WSOP Circuit live event in Atlantic City back in March. Thomas ‘OtB_RedBaron’ Lim finished in second place and earned the $67,372.75 second-place prize. ‘artiliu’ wrapped up in third place which was good for $44,360.

PASCOOP title winner ‘BirdBrain64’ grabbed second place and $12,122.58. And ‘WHATWHYNO’ took home the bronze and $68,716.24 for their efforts. There was a three-way deal in the $200 buy-in PokerStars NJ Sunday Special that saw Daniel ‘AvaGray’ Lupo get the official win and $7,758.92. ’jgoons11’ took slightly less, banking $7,249.02 for second and ‘Force O Will’ locked up $7,165.69 for third.
