While much of the poker spotlight may have been on the World Series of Poker in October, the online grind continues. With a combination of big-time results and plenty of volume, Rui ‘RuiNF’ Ferreira topped the Online Player of the Month leaderboard for October while also soaring past $22 million in career online earnings. It was another mammoth month for Ferreira who racked up 166 in-time-money finished in October for a total of $354,889 in total earnings. His entire month was anchored by a big win in the October 18 edition of the GGPoker $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Main Event where he took home $103,801 and 729.38 leaderboard points. The very next day Ferreira, grabbed his second-biggest score in October by making a deep run in the GGPoker Super MILLION$ High Rollers where he picked up another $22,981 and 238.01 leaderboard points. He had two other five-figure results last month including a win in Event #9 of the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series where he banked $18,173. Then, he closed out the month with a final table finish in the partypoker WPTDeepStacks Event #7 for another $15,371. The story of the month for Ferreira was pure volume. One look at his results and one can’t help but be awed by how many results per day he achieved. He racked up as many as 14 cashes on October 24th with many other days pulling in 8-10. It has allowed him to stay the top 10 of the Online Poker Rankings and he currently sits ranked #2 in Portugal, only behind countryman Joao Vieira. He finished with nine qualifying scores for a total of 3,534 leaderboard points, a full 665 points above second place. Falling in just one spot behind Ferreira in October is the current worldwide #8-ranked Enrico ‘whatisL0v3’ Camosci. Camosci has been soaring up the worldwide rankings and October was a snapshot as to why. He collected five-figure scores highlighted by his monthly high score of $22,720 for his podium finish in the GGPoker $2,625 High Rollers Blade Mulligan on October 4. But it was in the back half of the month that he really heated up. It started with a runner-up finish in the GGPoker $1,050 High Rollers Main Event for $18,229. Four days later he took down the Sunday High Roller on GGPoker for another $14,393 and then wrapped up a 10-day sprint with another big cash, hauling in $13,070 in the partypoker WPTDeepstacks Event #7 High Roller for $13,070. During that time, Camosci earned his third career PocketFives Triple Crown on October 18 with victories on GGPoker, PokerStars, and Winamax. Like Camosci, Brazil’s Rafael ‘pycadasgalax’ Furlanetto is also sitting at a career-high spot on the Online Poker Rankings thanks to a big October. Mainly a mid-stakes grinder, Furlanetto - like Ferreira - put in a huge amount of volume in the month. His first five-figure score of the month took place in the October 5 edition of the Natural8 $250 Daily Main Event where he walked away with the victory and $14,204 plus 273,82 leaderboard points. Less than a week later he was in the winner’s circle once again taking down the Natural8 $525 Sunday High Rollers for another $24,646. He picked up his third big cash on October 24 where his runner-up finish in the $300 Sunday Marathon brought him $18,591. In total, he had 184 in-the-money finishes for what turned out to be an incredibly busy month for Brazil’s #13-ranked grinder. October 2021 Online Player of the Month Results [table id=271 /]
The World Series of Poker Online events on GGPoker continue to be a showcase for Brazilian poker players. On Friday, Renan Carlos Bruschi, currently ranked #6 in the PocketFives Rankings, took down Event #14 ($500 The Big 500) to become the fifth player from Brazil to win a WSOP bracelet this year. When the final table began on Friday afternoon, Bruschi held the chip lead over the other eight players and the next closest stack to his belonged to a fellow countryman, Rafael Furlanetto. Just 15 minutes after play began, Furlanetto added to his stack by winning a classic flip. Furlanetto raised to 320,000 from UTG+1 with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"] before Andrejs Zukovs moved all in from his direct left for 3,964,752 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="tc"][poker card="9s"] flop gave Furlanetto bottom set and left Zukovs hoping for runner-runner help. The [poker card="4h"] turn left him drawing dead to the [poker card="7h"] river and Zukovs was out in ninth place. Bruschi took his turn in the executioner role just a few minutes later. David Wang raised to 320,000 from UTG+1 and Arthur Conan bumped it up 832,000 on the button. Bruschi responded by raised to 2,208,000, Wang moved all in for 4,260,251 and Conan folded. Bruschi called and tabled [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"] while Wang showed [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="th"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2c"] to eliminate Wang in eighth place. Furlanetto was involved in the next elimination but ultimately wasn't the benefactor. From UTG Eugenio Pernia moved all in for his last 1,866,806 with [poker card="as"][poker card="3s"] and Nikola Minkov attempted to isolate by moving all in for 3,811,082 with [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"]. Furlanetto then re-shoved from the button for 19,314,503 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8h"] flop changed nothing and neither did the [poker card="7c"] turn. The [poker card="th"] river missed both Pernia and Furlanetto and gave Minkov a full house to bust Pernia in seventh. Minkov found another victim just over 10 minutes later. Nick Maimone raised to 770,000 from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"] before Minkov jammed from the big blind for 7,993,970 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] and Maimone put the rest of his 7,136,510 stack at risk. The [poker card="th"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2d"] flop gave Maimone some extra outs. However, he bricked the [poker card="2s"] turn and [poker card="tc"] river and was out in sixth place. While everything had gone swimmingly for Minkov to that point, it all came to a disastrous end in a cooler against Bruschi just 10 minutes later. Bruschi raised to 700,000 from UTG with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"] and Minkov moved all in for 10,054,100 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"]. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="ts"][poker card="5s"] flop gave Minkov some hope but as the [poker card="6s"] turn and [poker card="3h"] river completed the board, the Bulgarian grinder was eliminated in fifth. Watching that hand unfold with curiosity was Conan. Down to less than seven big blinds when Minkov went out, a one hand later Conan raised to 800,000 on the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"] and Furlanetto jammed for 35,286,534 from big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="4d"]. The flop came [poker card="ks"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7h"] to keep Conan safe, but the [poker card="4s"] turn gave Furlanetto a pair. The [poker card="ad"] river improved his hand to two pair and eliminated Conan in fourth place with just a pair of aces. While Brazilian poker fans were no doubt hoping for a heads-up duel between Bruschi and Furlanetto, Leonid Bilkour had other ideas. Having started the final table with the shortest stack, Bilkour navigated his way to holding the chip lead with three players remaining. After more than 20 minutes of battle, the two Brazilians clashed in a pot that propelled Bruschi to the chip lead and Furlanetto to the exit. From the small blind, Bruschi raised to 1,500,000 with [poker card="8c"][poker card="8h"] and Furlanetto moved all in for 12,514,699 with [poker card="2d"][poker card="2s"] and Bruschi called. The board ran out [poker card="jc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7c"][poker card="kc"][poker card="6d"] to eliminate Furlanetto in third place and send Bruschi to heads up with 62% of the chips in play. Over the eight minutes that followed, Bilokur battled back to take the lead over Bruschi, the PocketFives Player of the Month for July. That lead was short-lived as Bilokur watched the best hand in poker spell his demise. Bilokur raised to 1,800,000 and Bruschi called. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="js"][poker card="8s"] flop got Bruschi to check and Bilokur bet 1,837,500. Bruschi called and then bet 4,000,5000 on the [poker card="7h"] turn. Bilokur called and watched the [poker card="9d"] river complete the board. Bruschi fired 11,869,500 into the middle. Bilokur called all in for his last 11,704,565 and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"] but Bruschi tabled [poker card="ts"][poker card="3s"] for a rivered straight. Bilokur was eliminated in second place. The win allowed Bruschi to join Joao Simao, Thiago Crema, Eduardo Pires, and Lucio Lima as Brazilians winning WSOP gold in 2021 and gave him the opportunity to improve upon his runner-up finish in Event #2 ($2,500 Limit Hold’em Championship).
