The stars of online poker were shining bright on Day Three of the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker as the leaderboards were littered with top-ranked pros vying to take down one of the seven events that came to a conclusion on Tuesday. It took three days to wrap up Event #4-H ($2,100 NLHE Progressive Knockout) and in the end, it was the UK pro Andy 'BowieEffect' Wilson who outlasted the 445-player field and took home the first-place prize worth $151,779.41. Fellow UK grinder Ludovic ‘ludovi333’ Geilich finished in second place and added $83,950.76 to his over $4 million in career online earnings. Aliaksei ‘ale6ka’ Boika rounded out the top three, finishing in third place for $49,962.83. Samuel ‘€urop€an’ Vousden took home Tuesday’s largest payday when bested the 176-entry field of Event 08-H ($5,200 NLHE) for $177,176.74. Vousden had stiff competition in the home stretch of the final table including Matthias ‘iambest2’ Eibinger who finished as the runner-up for $135,035.20 and Sam ‘Str8$$$Homey’ Greenwood who ended up in third place for $102,917.14. Other notable players who made a deep run in this event included Mikita ‘fish2013’ Badziakouski (4th, $78,438.36), former #1-ranked Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard (7th, $34,725.76), and Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro (10th, 17,083.26). While it wasn’t the biggest tournament of the day, Event 09-H ($2,100 H.O.R.S.E.) was a big one for Talal ‘raidalot’ Shakerchi. Shakerchi topped the 65 player field to lock up the $35,425 first-place prize and, perhaps more importantly for the high-roller, his fifth career SCOOP title. Shakerchi has a long history of success in SCOOP with his victories dating back to 2012 as well as earning the Main Event title in 2016 that was worth more than $1.46 million. He bested ‘labrint93’ in heads-up play, who took home $24,050 as the runner-up and ‘Fabahaba’ ended up in third place for $18,200. Also of note for Event 09, in 09-M ($215 H.O.R.S.E.) current #1-ranked player in the world Yuri ‘theNERDguy’ Dzivielevski took down the 448 player field to earn $17,024 and his first career SCOOP title. Brazil’s Thiago ‘KKremate’ Crema rose to the top of Event 10-H ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, PKO) to capture his second career SCOOP title after outlasting Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet in heads-up play. Crema booked a total score of $75,115.79 while the popular PocketFiver Van Fleet settled for a $59,959.20 payday as the runner-up. ‘Gogac sniper’ took home $30,478.84 in third place. One of the things that PokerStars does better than anyone else is providing championship online events in poker variants players simply can’t compete in anywhere else. And 57 players took advantage of that in Event 12-H ($1,050 5-Card Draw) where ‘Chillolini’ took home the title and $19,218.01 for first. They were joined on the podium by ‘aleksandra10’ who finished in second place for $13,627.97 and ‘krakukra’ in third for $5,926.43. Bruno ‘great dant’ Volkmann, currently the ranked #8 online player in the world, grabbed his first SCOOP title on Tuesday by taking down Event #15-H ($2,100 NLHE) for $74,191.09, the 14th best score of his prolific career. ‘EzPaTuLa’ wrapped up as the runner-up and added $57,121.76 to their bankroll while ‘mnstrkll’ finished in third place which was good for $43,979.668. Former #1-ranked ‘Legenden’ (who plays as ‘Leqenden’ on PokerStars) booked his fourth SCOOP title by besting the 267-entry field of Event 16-H ($1,050 6-Max, Turbo, Win The Button) for $50,964.22. ‘takechip’ earned $37,776.41 as the runner-up and the UK’s former top-5 ranked Jonathan ‘Proudflop’ Proudfoot added $28,001.27 to his more than $6.5 million in career earnings for finishing in third. Other winners on Tuesday included ‘julianpineda’ (Event #8-L), ‘bungakat’ (Event #8-M), ‘mogs_11’ (Event #9-L), ‘CrAzY_sTeFaN’ (Event #10-L), ‘Fenryr03’ (Event #10-M), ‘Bragbag’ (Event #12-L), ‘Kroko-dill’ (Event #12-M), ‘MarlonBT01’ (Event #15-L), ‘dottorsudUK’ (Event #15-M), ‘Jeka3200’ (Event #16-L), ‘taglagfack’ (Event #16-M).

In a career that has spanned more than 12 years, 888poker ambassador Dominik Nitsche has evolved from a small stakes online grinder to one of the most prolific high rollers in the poker world today. The results of his hard work speak for themselves as Nitsche has amassed more than $6.5 million in online earnings and an amazing $18.65 million in live earnings, a total which places him 32nd on the Hendon Mob’s All-Time Money List. Even after so much success, Nitsche continues to grind. A successful week at the online tables helped Nitsche surge 27 spots in the online poker worldwide rankings to #68, one of the biggest moves inside the top-100 for the week. The rise in rankings helped him take over the #1-ranking in Germany and close in on a career-high spot of #60, which he last hit back in 2009. As Nitsche continues to climb the rankings, it makes for a good time to look back at some of the biggest scores in the DTO private poker coach’s history, including his most recent victory which added a major title to his long list of accomplishments. 2019 PokerStars WCOOP Just over a year ago, Nitsche booked the biggest win of his online poker career during the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker when he made a deep run in Event #25-H ($25,000 NLHE, 8-Max, High Roller). The tournament drew 90 entries and generated a prize pool of over $2.2 million fueled by some of the toughest competition the poker world has to offer. Nitsche battled his way to the final table, outlasting the likes of Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen, Tim ‘Tim0thee’ Adams, and Mustapha ‘lasagnaaammm’ Kanit, all of who made the money. In the end, Nitsche ended up falling in fifth place walking away with $188,139. Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov ended up winning the event for more than $527,000. 2017 PokerStars SCOOP Two-and-a-half years prior to his big risk, big reward run in the 2019 WCOOP, Nitsche entered another high roller looking to take home a massive score. The field size in the 2017 Spring Championship of Online Poker Event #15-M ($2,100 NLHE, 8-Max, High Roller) was a good deal larger as 772 entries drove the prize pool to just over $1.5 million. Again, Nitsche made a deep run to the final table where he battled the impressive online poker talent of Ami ‘UhhMee’ Barer and former #1-ranked Calvin ‘Cal42688’ Anderson. Nitsche finished in fourth place that day but locked up a massive $115,800 score for his efforts. $5K High Roller One of the very first high roller tournaments in 2018 took place on January 3 that year and featured a who’s who of top online poker talent. The $5,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller was littered with notable screen names that finished in the money that day. Ludovic ‘ludovi333’ Geilich, Mike ‘telks’ Telker, Chris ‘Apotheosis92’ Kruk, and Stephen ‘stevie444’ Chidwick all picked up huge scores that day. Nitsche surpassed all of them though and notched himself a podium finish with a third-place score of $82,445 which helped him get the year off to a good start. In the end, Damian ‘pampa27’ Salas bested ‘DEX888’ for the win and the $139K first-place prize. 2020 PokerStars SCOOP It seems that Nitsche only gets better with age as two of his top 5 all-time scores were won in 2020. The first of which took place on May 22 in the 2020 PokerStars SCOOP when Nitsche fired in the $500,000 guaranteed Event #87-H ($530 NLHE). The field swelled to 956 entries but Nitsche outlasted every single one of them, booking the win and adding the $82,365 first-place prize to what was, at that time, $5.8 million in online earnings. 2020 EPT Online Cup Nitsche’s latest major online score proves that while he may be known for crushing the small field, nosebleed buy-in tournaments he still has what it takes to work his way through a massive field MTT and get the win. On November 14, just over a week ago, Nitsche nabbed himself a title in PokerStars’ first-ever EPT Online series when he outlasted the massive field of 2,833 runners and took down EPT Online Event #14 ($215 NLHE, EPT Online Cup) for $82,093. Along with the major online title, Nitsche picked up 752.73 PLB points which sent him sailing past Germany’s ‘nilsef’ in the rankings and has positioned himself to reach ranking heights he hasn’t seen in over a decade. Since taking home the gold in the EPT Online event, Nitsche continues to add to his PLB point total, grabbing another 169.49 points with his runner-up finish in the $215 Fast Friday just last week. If Nitsche continues to grind the kind of volume he’s been putting in as of late, he’s a favorite to hit a new career-high ranking by the end of the year. Players can qualify for the online poker worldwide rankings by adding their screennames to their PocketFives profile.
While the three 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Main Events all played down to a final table on Tuesday, the fans of the great game of Pot Limit Omaha were tuned into to watch the PLO Main Events crown a new champion and all three of the buy-in levels came through with a top player standing in the winner's circle. Sweden's 'jedimaster82' beat Ola ‘Odd_Oddsen’ Amundsgaard heads up to win Event #73 High ($10,300 PLO Main Event) for $283,368.15 and their first WCOOP victory. Amundsgaard collected $217,808.59 for his runner-up performance. Kahle 'ROFLshove' Burns outlasted 787 other entries in event #73 Medium ($1,050 PLO Main Event) to pocket $133,757 along with the first WCOOP title of his storied career. The final PLO Main Event went to the current #1-ranked online poker player in Germany. 'nilsef' and 'GHOSTFACE9.8' chopped Event #73 Low ($109 PLO Main Event) with 'nilsef' taking home $40,224.38 and the title. This is the fifth time 'nilsef' has captured WCOOP glory, making him the fifth player to do so. 'Roche9797', who captured Event #68 Medium just two days earlier, came out on top of Event #75 High ($1,050 NLHE Series Saver) to become the 18th player to win two WCOOP titles this year. The win came with $97.526.11 from the prize pool and another $74,277.26 in bounties. The first event on the 2020 WCOOP schedule finally wrapped up on Tuesday. 'estebangocu' topped Phase 2 of Event #1 ($215 NLHE) to win $215,006.07 and their first WCOOP title. The other four players who were crowned WCOOP champs on Tuesday were 'JannikB541' (Event #1 Medium), 'timaozanho' (Event #1 Low), 'r-w patriot' (Event #75 Medium), and 'Jungurcew' (Event #75 Low).

For the last six months, Brazilian Bruno Botteon has been on an absolute rampage on the online felt and on Thursday the #3-ranked player in the world took down a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title for the second time in his career. Botteon topped the 192-entry field, including eliminating Gediminas ‘Gedis92’ Uselis heads up, in Event #36 High ($2,100 NLHE Midweek Freeze) to earn the title and $80,642.40. His first WCOOP win came last year when he took down a $530 Heads Up NLHE Turbo PKO Zoom event. Uselis earned $62,088.88 for his performance while Mike Watson finished third for $47,804. For the second time in a week, Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth stood tall at the end of a WCOOP event. After taking down Event #15 High ($530 NLHE w/rebuys) on September 3 for his first-ever WCOOP victory, Nemeth outlasted 124 other players in Event #37 High ($5,200 Six Max PLO High Roller) to grab his second career title and $140,506.41. British grinder Sam Grafton also managed to take his name off of the list of top-ranked players without a WCOOP title. Grafton, the #37-ranked player in the world, shipped Event #41 High ($2,100 Six Max NLHE) to pocket $84,770.52. Steve O'Dwyer finished runner-up for $65,082.57. Andrey 'Gigaloff' Zhigalov defeated Luke 'lb6121' Schwartz heads up to win Event #40 High ($1,050 Razz) to add $27,440 to his bankroll.
