  1. There’s just one week left in the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and as the start of the Main Events draws closer, the action is heating up. Wednesday’s highlights included the reigning WSOP Main Event champion tacking on another title while one of SCOOP’s most prolific players proved himself yet again. It was another galaxy of poker superstars battling for six-figure sums in Event #72-H ($10,300 NLHE, 8-Max) with a lobby littered with all-world talent. But when the chips were all in a single stack it was 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Damian ‘pampa27’ Salas who was the last man standing, collecting the $263,022.96 first-place prize. To say it didn’t come easy would be an understatement as there were zero soft spots at the final table. Linus ‘LLinusLLove’ Loeliger (8th, $44,084.52), five-time SCOOP champion Talal ‘raidalot’ Shakerchi (7th, $56,898.60), and Christoph ’26071985’ Vogelsang (6th, $73,437.36) all made the final eight. While online poker superstars Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet (5th, $94,783.44) and Wiktor ‘limitless’ Malinowski (4th, $122,334.12) both nearly made the podium. Austrian grinder Thomas ’WushuTM’ Muhlocker used two entries and climbed his way to third place for a $157,893 score. Finally, Christian ‘WATnlos’ Rudolph made his third bullet count as he finished as the runner-up and collected $203,787.84. In February, Salas spoke about his continued drive to be considered one of the poker world’s best players and on Wednesday he not earned his first career SCOOP title to add to his resume but the over $263K score pushed him just above $10 million in lifetime online earnings. Former pool shark turned pro pro ‘FouEnculePL’ picked up his first career SCOOP title after topping the 154-player field of Event #73-H ($2,100 NLHE, Freezeout) for $64,649.98. Brazil’s ‘Kelvin_FR:AR’ grabbed his second High Event runner-up finished of the series which was good for another $50,013.07 while ‘Kraskata85’ took home third place honors and $38,690.03. Also of note, Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet finished in fourth place for $29,930.57, his second major final table of the day. It was a profitable, if not slightly frustrating day for four-time SCOOP champion Rinat ‘Zapahzamazki’ Lyapin. The Russian pro found himself heads-up for a fifth title in two spots on Wednesday, however, in both, he was regulated to the role of runner-up and denied what would be his third High event victory of the 2021 series. First in Event #76-H ($1,050 HORSE), Lyapin battled Germany’s ‘NicoBoko’ but was unable to wrap up the victory. ‘NicoBoko’ topped the 113-entry field and clinched their first SCOOP title for $27,685. Lyapin collected $19,210 for second place and ‘Gjeddekongen’ from Norway ended up in third place and received $14,690. Then, in another small field specialty event, Event #78-H ($1,050 FL Badugi, 6-Max), Lyapin went toe-to-toe against current worldwide #8-ranked pro Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson. The Canadian online poker veteran emerged on top of the 57-entry field to capture an incredible seventh career SCOOP title and the $20,037.71 first-place prize. Watson’s latest triumph is added to a SCOOP resume that proves that he’s one of the most well-rounded players in the game today. He’s earned SCOOP titles in Pot Limit Omaha, PLO Hi/Lo, two in 6+ Hold’em (Short Deck), 2-7 NL Single Draw, No Limit Hold’em, and now FL Badugi. All told, Watson’s earned more than $370,000 in SCOOP victories alone. That left Lyapin to settle for second place once again and this time he picked up $13,271.72. His two runner-up finishes earned him a total of $32,481 on the day. But when added to his victories in Event #20-H and Event 56-H, the Russian pro has taken in more than $186,000 in High event podium finishes this year. Not to be lost, Chris ‘Apotheosis92’ Kruk finished the FL Badugi event in third place for $8,790.36 while Benny ‘RunGodlike’ Glaser and two-time 2021 SCOOP winner ‘calvin7v’ also made the final table. Other winners on Wednesday included ‘Diplomatic_Boy’ (Event #72-L), ‘J0hnny_Dr@m@‘ (Event #72-M), ‘Dexxt3r’ (Event #74-L), ‘konsti1710’ (Event #74-M), ‘Fisherman FV’ (Event #76-L), ‘luckykuck653’ (Event #76-M), ‘HP Paque1’ (Event #78-L), and ‘FAL1st’ (Event #78-M).

  2. For weeks now, the worldwide Online Poker Rankings have been a tight-knit crew. Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon has held down the top spot for the past eight weeks and well-known names like Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson, and Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens have occupied their own positions inside the Top 5. But this week, a new player broke through into the upper echelons of the rankings for the first time in his career. Portugal’s #1-ranked pro Rui ‘RuiNF’ Ferreira soared past Brazil’s Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann and Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivieleski to capture the #5 spot, building on what has been, for him, an incredible start to 2021. Ferreira has long been considered a top-tier tournament player but his recent rise in the rankings can be traced back to the beginning of this year when he collected large amounts of PLB points on a daily basis. Many of Ferreira's spotlight scores have come on GGPoker, where he dedicates most of his volume. His first notable score of the year came back on January 4 when he made a deep run in the WSOP Circuit Event #15 ($800 FIFTY STACK), finishing in fifth place for $56,646 and 451.33 PLB points. That was just the start of an onslaught of impressive results that week. In a three-day span, he collected five PLB-qualifying scores including a fifth-place finish in the prestigious $10K Super MILLION$ tournament where he collected $158,690 and 567.28 PLB points. In total, he brought in 1,396.28 points during that span which set him up for a run to the worldwide Top 10. Less than a week later, Ferreira finished as the runner-up in the Winamax W Series High Roller KO for $131,199, his second six-figure score of the week. The 921.92 PLB points that came with it remains his largest PLB score of the year so far. He wasn’t finished with the W Series as a victory in Event 185 added another $11,194 to his bankroll and helped pad the bed of PLB points he’d need to push into the upper echelons of the rankings. On January 26, he made another deep run in the GGPoker Super MILLION$, finishing in 11th place for $33,604. Ferriera has proved to be one of the most consistent players in the weekly Super MILLION$ having cashed in 15 of his 31 appearances and earning $1,000,053 along the way. After that result, Ferriera had climbed into the #8 spot in the rankings and needed an extra jolt to hit a new career-high rank this week. He got that lift this week after outlasting the 111 runners, and besting Chris Koldnicki heads-up, in the $525 buy-in GGPoker Sunday High Rollers for $12,886 and 235.58 PLB points. On the same day, at a final table that included Ryan Riess, Bryan Paris, and Jack Salter, Ferreira took fifth place in the High Roller MILLION$ for $66,038 and the 473.78 PLB points he needed to break into the Top 5. While he still has a way to go to make a run at #1, as he’s over 3,400 points behind Botteon as of this week, another solid performance over the next week could put him in striking distance of Stevens who sits at #4, just 194 points away. Online Poker Rankings Notes This Week • Russia’s Andrey 'kot_spartac' Kotelnikov reached a career-high ranking of #13 in the world, up 12 spots from #25 last week, thanks in part to finishing in fourth place out of a massive 28,404-entry field in the PokerStars 50/50 Series $50 Main Event. He earned $47,045 and 494.56 PLB points to push him past former #1-ranked Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford who fell back to #14. • Popular Twitch poker streamer Patrick ‘Egption’ Tardif hit #34 in the world, a new career-high for him, after finishing as the runner-up in the Natural8 $1,050 High Rollers Main Event for $75,480 and 466.52 PLB points. The score helped propel Tardif to up over $3 million in career online earnings. • Brazil’s Gabriel ‘gtavares10’ Tavares made one of the biggest moves of the week, jumping up 27 spots to #58 after his victory in the February 7 PokerStars $530 High Roller Club Bounty Builder for $40,301 and 541.76 PLB points. Brazil has taken over the worldwide top 100, currently holding down 29 of the top 100 spots. Worldwide Online Poker Rankings [table id=171 /]
  3. For many poker players, January is a time to get a fresh start. It's a time to reset the stats, dedicate oneself to study, and hope that in the new year the work pays off and the results go to the moon. But for Brazil’s Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon, a “fresh start” is not on the agenda. For the world’s #1-ranked online pro, the continuation of his heater that started one year ago is what he wanted. That's what happened and what brought him the title of Online Poker Player of the Month for January. One might think that after earning a career-high seven-figure score in the international leg of the 2020 World Series of Poker at the end of 2020, Botteon might take some time off. But within a week he was back to picking up PLB-qualified cashes en masse. He found success in the first week of January on GGPoker with deep runs in the WSOPC Series $525 Bounty Hunters for $22,304 plus 321.09 PLB points and weekly $10K Super MILLION$ for another $41,934 and 374.26 PLB points. His first outright win arrived on January 10 when he topped the 279-entry field of the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday HR for $57,263 and 547.72 PLB points. The middle of the month was highlighted by a fifth-place finish in the GGPoker High Rollers Marathon for $12,542. It was right around this time when Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic pushed to within just 5 PLB points of overtaking Botteon as the top-ranked player in the world. But when Croatia’s Zufic traveled to the United States to make a deep run in the World Poker Tour’s Lucky Hearts Poker Open, Botteon booked his first six-figure score of the new year with a win in the January 25 edition of the GGPoker High Rollers Sunday 500 for $126,544 and 738.24 PLB points. His spotlight score of the month brought more than enough PLB points to pull away from the pack and keep the #1-spot for the seventh week in a row. In total, Botteon racked up 3,893 PLB points on 59 total cashes for a total of $391,988. January also marked his third time as Player of the Month. Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson finished out January just 150 points behind Botteon to end up in second place with 3,734 points. Watson, who is Canada’s #1-ranked pro and sitting at an all-time high ranking of #3 in the world, put in significantly less volume than Botteon but made up the difference with nine PLB-qualifying cashes and seven five-figure cashes for a total of $526,078. Watson kicked off the month with a string of victories including a PokerStars Blowout Series title in Event #25-H ($1,050 NLHE Sunday Warm-up) for $75,462 and 648.85 PLB points. The very next day, on January 4, he was in the winner’s circle again in the Natural8 WSOPC $1,500 Deepstack, winning $36,040 and another 404.81 PLB points. Watson picked up big-time scores on just about every online operator he played on including a runner-up finish in the partypoker High Roller Big Game for $54,958 and a win in the World Poker Tour Montreal Online Event #18 for $39,007. But his biggest result of the month came on Natural8 when he finished in fourth place in the January 26 edition of the Super MILLION$ for $187,255 and 618.64. His Super MILLION$ score was big enough to land in Watson’s all-time top 5. Estonia’s Markku ‘markovitsus’ Koplimaa rounded out the top three in January with 3,590 PLB points. Koplimaa has been rocketing up the worldwide rankings, reaching a new career-high rank of #12 in the world. While both Botteon and Watson put up impressive results, Koplimaa outdid them both when it came to volume by racking up 229 in-the-money finishes. He embraced the grind, playing every tournament he could enter from mid-stakes and higher. He was rewarded with over $390,000 in earnings including a runner-up finish in the January 18 edition of the GGPoker High Roller MILLION$ for $187,272. It was the second-largest online cash of his career and included a massive 908.09 PLB bump. In total, Koplimaa notched five results of five-figures or better with 11 PLB-qualified scores. Should he continue to have results even half of what he posted in January, he’ll eclipse the career $10 million mark before the end of the year.

  4. The poker resume of Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson is overflowing with incredible achievements. From seven-figure scores to capturing major online titles, Canada’s current #1-ranked online crusher has added a new accolade by entering the elite air of the top five of the online poker rankings for the first time in his over 14 year career. Thanks to a late-summer surge filled with a string of impressive scores, Watson jettisoned into his current spot at #4 in the world and, for the time being, has eclipsed some of online poker’s biggest names, including ‘Lena900’, Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivielevski and Chris ‘Gettin Daize’ Oliver, to enjoy a career-high worldwide ranking. One just needs to look at Watson’s dominance in the month of August to see how he leveraged an online heater to hit new heights. He found early month success playing in big buy-in events including the August 9 edition of the PokerStars $5,200 High Roller where he finished as the runner-up for a $92,337 score. Two days later, Watson found another second-place finish in the Natural8 $5K High Roller Blade Prime for $80,176. Watson really hit a mid-month stride when he won back-to-back $10K Short Deck High Rollers on Natural8. On August 12, he topped the small-but-elite field of 20 entries and eventually defeated Mikita Badziakouski heads up to walk away with a $66,569 win. He took those winnings and played the same event the very next day. This time he bested Rozvadov's King’s Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik to pick up another $110,400 victory. While all of those big money scores were an important part of Watson’s month, none of them helped him when it came to his PLB point total. He was smashing huge scores but the field sizes hadn’t done anything for him in terms of rankings. But Watson isn’t just a small-field specialist and he showed that late in the month. ‘SirWatts’ was in the midst of grinding the World Series of Poker on GGPoker and at the same time playing large field events on PokerStars when he racked up an impressive string of results that sent his PLB score soaring. It got started on August 25 when Watson picked up a cash in the High Roller Super MILLION$ on Natural8 for $21,665 and 190.63 PLB points. The next day he took 5th place in WSOP Event #72 ($1,500 Limit Hold’em Championship) on GGPoker for another $26,069 plus 260.52 PLB points. On August 30, Watson was battling for titles during PokerStars 2020 World Championship of Online Poker finishing in second place in Event #2-H ($10,300 NLHE 8-Max, PKO) for a total of over $198,000 and 597.43 PLB points, the eighth-highest score of his career. He again nearly grabbed the title in Event #3-H ($5,200 PLO 6-Max High Roller) where he fell in third place for $20,184 and 205.44 PLB points. The very next day Watson switched his focus and ran deep in a pair of WSOP side events, earning a total of more than $12,000 and, more importantly for his ranking, another 271 PLB points. And while, no longer technically August, he finished off his stretch of PLB pickups with a final table finish in the September 1 edition of the High Roller Super MILLION$ which earned him $45,324 and 420.83 PLB points. In total, over the course of three days and five events, Watson earned nearly 1,500 PLB points. In the month of August alone, Watson earned roughly $677,000 (and 2,031 PLB points) which helped push past the $7 million mark in lifetime online earnings. Of course even though August was over, the winnings didn’t stop there for Watson. Since then, he’s picked up 10 five-figure scores and a considerable amount of PLB points which has helped him hold on to his #4 ranking for the past three weeks. However, in order to keep the momentum going, and take a shot at the #1 spot, Watson will need to get back to the online grind. After a summer of heavy grinding, he only racked up four total results in the entire month of October. That said, with over $20 million in total career earnings, when Watson decides to set his sights on climbing even higher than his current #4 spot, he’s a good bet to get there.
  5. 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.

  6. More PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) action took place on Tuesday, May 12, but the day was more about what's to come than what happened. Only a few of the day's events played to a completion, as several were two-day competitions that set up for big finishes on Wednesday. Mike 'SirWatts' Watson was one of the Tuesday winners, taking the title in Event #51-H: $1,050 NL 2-7 Single Draw, $75K Gtd. Watson topped a field of 84 entries to win $22,050. The win was Watson's fourth SCOOP title and he beat Alexander 'joiso' Kostritsyn in heads-up play. Event #55-H: $530 NL [Progressive KO], $350K Gtd was reached an end, as 'P0KERPR02.0' topped the field of 1,066 entries to win $36,672.56 plus $37,229.38 in bounties. 'PaGaOVelhinho' was runner-up for $36,671.78 plus $7,809.57 in bounties. Now, onto the events that will conclude on Wednesday. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] In Event #52-M: $2,100 NL [8-Max], $750K Gtd, a field of 440 entries generated an $880,000 prize pool. After Tuesday, 25 players remained with 'srxakgirona' as the chip leader with 4,672,294 in chips. Adrian 'Amadi_017' Mateos is second in chips with 3,451,272. Sitting in fifth chip position is Andras 'probirs' Nemeth with 2,672,844. This tournament is set to award $157,734.78 to the winner. In Event #52-H: $25,000 NL [8-Max, Super High Roller], $2M Gtd, a field of 89 entries has been whittled down to the final 10. Andras 'probirs' Nemeth leads the way with 6,061,664, so he could have quite the day given that he's fifth in chips in Event #52-M, too. In this event, Talal 'raidalot' Shakerchi is second with 3,225,908 and Ole 'wizowizo' Schemion is third with 2,560,483. The event generated a $2.182 million prize pool and the winner is set to take home $521,597.77. Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard leads the final 14 players from a field of 117 entries in Event #53-H: $2,100 PLO8 [6-Max], $200K Gtd. He finished the first day with 1,572,152 in chips. There is $52,605.66 up top. Joris 'BillLewinsky' Ruijs finished with 3,122,502 in chips on the first day of Event #54-H: $1,050 NL, $500K Gtd. First place is set at $107,503.65 with 71 players remaining from a field of 609. Another player who could be in for a very big Wednesday is Joao 'Naza114' Vieira.

  7. 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. Former #1-ranked Chris Hunichen rounded out the podium finishers. Dutch pro Silvio 'silskyer' Costa earned $57,121.80 for outlasting 286 other entries in Event #38 High ($1,050 NLHE Freezeout). There were 10 other players who won WCOOP titles on Thursday including 'Samuel Peace' (Event #36 Medium), 'Wizard1998' (Event #36 Low), 'The_Truht' (Event #37 Medium), 'JAG3053' (Event #37 Low), 'NutrsInMacada' (Event #38 Medium), 'Sox[tyol]' (Event #38 Low), 'Supermassa1 (Event #40 Medium), 'kaskaders' (Event #40 Low), 'ILoveScarfGuy' (Event #41 Medium), and 'paila02' (Event #41 Low).
