  1. [caption width="640"] Andrey Zaichenko added a second World Championship of Online Poker title on Thursday (PokerStars/Neil Stoddart photo)[/caption] Day 11 of the World Championship of Online Poker featured the final tables of two No Limit Hold’em tournaments along with that of the Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship. Each event easily surpassed its guarantee, and in one case more than doubled it. Played out over two long days, Event #37, a $215 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament with option to rebuy twice and add-on once, resulted in a final table lineup that would put any pro to the test. The UK’s Jonathan ‘OMGjonyctt’ Concepcion, Argentina’s Ivan ‘Negriin’ Luca, Canadian Joel ‘jbrown8777’ Brown and Brazil’s Eli ‘Timunim’ Fagundes were all on hand, with Twitch star Jason Somerville busting out just before the final nine. A total of 1,095 entrants made 855 rebuys and 461 add-ons, creating a massive $489,433 prize pool which smashed the event’s $200,000 guarantee. After the hour-long break at the six-hour mark, only 
Terje ‘TerjePower18’ Underbakke of Norway and ‘Ohljo’ of Bulgaria remained. Ohljo enjoyed a chip advantage the entire match, and although 'TerjePower18' managed to double up after having his stack knocked down to 2 million chips, he would soon be all-in again. Holding [poker card="jh"][poker card="5h"] against Ohljo’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="th"], it seemed that the Norwegian might double up again when the flop came [poker card="5s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2d"]. A river ten put an end to that hope, however, giving Ohljo a higher pair and the $79,638 first-place prize. The next of the day’s tournaments to wrap up yesterday was the $320 Six Max No Limit Hold’em event, which garnered 966 entries to create a $289,800 prize pool. At the conclusion of the final table, Poland’s ‘T3G3S’ was pitted against ‘lehout’, a Dutchman who won this very same tournament two years ago, and UK grinder Patrick ‘thebigdog09’ Brooks. T3G3S, a SCOOP champion himself, would go on to deny lehout the repeat win, leaving him in third place with a $26,082 payday. Soon afterwards, 'T3G3S' dispatched Brooks heads up to add his first WCOOP title to his resume, and pocketed $46,368 for his efforts. In Event #39, the $1,050 Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship, 179 entrants created a $231,000 prize pool, easily exceeding the tournament’s $150,000 guarantee. On day two, 55 remaining players were left to duke it out for a shot at the money, which was paid out to 27 places. Several big-name pros fell before that point, including Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan, Stephen ‘stevie444’ Chidwick,Shaun Deeb, and Dan ‘djk123’ Kelly. Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom would make it a bit further, ending his run in 15th place. When all was said and done, Russian pro Andrey ‘Kroko-dill’ Zaichenko defeated Canadian pro Kyle ‘kwob20’ Bowker to win his second WCOOP title and a $44,499 payday.

  2. Russia's Andrey Zaichenko began day 6 of the 2014 World Series of Poker with 3,565,000 in chips, which placed him near the top of the pack tied for 20th place with 79 players remaining. He is known as Zayaon PocketFives and plays online poker under the user name Kroko-dill. He finished the 2014 WSOP Main Event in 17th place for $347,000. Zaichenko had $1.3 million in live tournament cashes to his name heading into the 2014 Main Event, with his biggest Main Event finish coming in 2012 when he took 232nd place for almost $45,000. In April 2008, Zaichenko finished in second place in a €2,100 EPT Grand Final event for just over $136,000. He followed that up a couple of months later with a seventh place finished in a World Series of Poker $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event for just over $112,000 in June 2008. Zaichenko's only recorded live poker tournament win came in June 2009 when he won the $1,080 Bellagio Summer Daily for about $40,000. Zaichenko's biggest live tournament cash prior heading into the 2014 World Series of Poker was back in 2011 when he took third place in a $10,000 HORSE event for almost $258,000. Zaichenko ended Day 5 of the 2014 Main Event with one of the bigger cooler hands that came against American poker player Michael Aron. With the blinds at 20,000/40,000, Aron went all-in with pocket queens and was called by Zaichenko, who was holding pocket jacks. The flop innocently came out As-4d-Th, keeping Aron in the lead. Luck was on Zaichenko's side when a jack appeared on the turn, giving him a set on a hand he was a huge underdog on when the chips were all-in pre-flop. The 7h on the river did not improve Aron's hand, sending him to the rail to end Day 6, while Zaichenko watched his stack grow to almost 3.6 million right before all the remaining players bagged their chips to end the day.
  3. Fedor Holzhas had himself quite the summer. The former PocketFives#1-ranked player had won a couple of Aria High Rollers, finished runner-up in the Poker Central Super High Roller Bowl and he capped it all off on Sunday by winning the One Drop High Roller for his first career bracelet. Holz’s victory came while Day 1B of the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event played out around him and followed up Courtney Kennedy’s own bracelet win in the Ladies Event earlier in the day. Event #65: Courtney Kennedy Wins Ladies Championship [caption width="640"] Courtney Kennedy is the 2016 WSOP Ladies Champion (WSOP photo)[/caption] Courtney Kennedy topped what some are considering the toughest final table in WSOP Ladies Event history to win $149,108 and her first career bracelet. “I had to be careful about having the chip lead. I didn’t want to get carried away, especially with my rail cheering for me and all,” Kennedy said. “I just wanted to play my strong game and pick my spots.” Kennedy is a 37-year-old poker dealer from Detroit. “I’m all about spark. I like to make people laugh, even as a dealer. Some people might say I talk too much, but I keep talking even while I deal.” Kennedy beat Amanda Baker heads up to claim the title. Baker has now cashed four times in this event in her career. She walked away with $92,121. Amanda Musumeci finished fifth for $32,889, her largest WSOP cash since 2012. Team PokerStars pro Yaxi Zhu finished ninth. Final Table Payouts Courtney Kennedy - $149,108 Amanda Baker - $92,121 Xiu Deng - $64,401 Natalia Breviglieri - $45,683 Amanda Musumeci - $32,889 Shelly Johnson-Ochoa $24,037 Wendy Freedman $17,837 Nicole Schwartz - $13,443 Yaxi Zhu - $10,290 Event #67: $111,111 One Drop High Roller: Fedor Holz Wins First Bracelet, $4.98M [caption width="640"] Fedor Holz won the One Drop High Roller for nearly https://cdn.pocketfives.com/p5wp/2017/11/594474-fedor-holz-wsop-bracelet.jpg million and a bracelet (WSOP photo)[/caption] Fedor Holz beat Dan Smith heads up to win the One Drop High Roller and walk away with $4,981,775 and the first gold bracelet of his career. Holz, 22, admitted afterward that this was easily the highlight of his young poker career. “I just so feel overwhelmed.*I didn’t think it would be like this,” said Holz. “I’m really happy right now. I was very focused coming into this.*I told my friends even, that this was going to be a very important week.*I had such a great feeling about this tournament and felt really intense about it, which is why it means so much to me to win it.” Smith, who has yet to win a WSOP bracelet in his career, finished runner-up just one day after finishing third in the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller. He’s now cashed for nearly $4,000,000 at the 2016 WSOP. Reigning Main Event champion Joe McKeehen finished sixth for $829,792. Final Table Payaouts Fedor Holz - $4,981,775 Dan Smith - $3,078,974 Koray Aldemir - $2,154,265 Jack Salter - $1,536,666 Brian Green - $1,117,923 Joe McKeehen - $829,792 Nick Petrangelo - $628,679 Niall Farrell $486,383 WSOP Main Event Day 1B: Andrey Zaichenko Tops Just like Day 1A of the 2016 WSOP Main Event, Day 1B saw a small uptick over the 2015 field size. A total of 1,733 players took their shot at the Main Event title on Sunday, up just 17 players over the 2015 field size. Topping the 1,302 players who managed to make it through all five levels of play was Russian bracelet winner Andrey Zaichenko with 292,700. That puts him just barely behind Gary Sewell and Alvaro Lopez’s Day 1A stacks of 312,500 and 306,200 respectively. Some of the other notables to make it through Day 1B include Maria Ho, Anthony Zinno, Vanessa Selbst, Antonio Esfandiari and Johnny Chan. Main Event Day 1B Top 10 Chip Counts Andrey Zaichenko - 292,700 Kenny Hallaert - 269,400 Kevin Powell - 219,800 Chang Luo - 203,800 Eric Afriat - 200,500 Thi Nguyen - 200,000 Keith Lehr - 197,900 Ronnie Pease - 197,000 Zu Zhou - 191,200 Kyle Knecht - 189,700
  4. [caption width="640"] Benny Glaser became the third player to win a second 2016 WSOP bracelet on Wednesday (WSOP photo)[/caption] While Jason Mercier continues to be the top story of the 2016 World Series of Poker, Benny Glaser is doing his best to grab some of the headlines as well. On Wednesday the British poker pro won his second bracelet of the summer in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship, taking it down just days after winning the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo event. Glaser joins Mercier and and Ian Johns as 2016 double-bracelet winners. Meanwhile Russian poker pro Andrey Zaichenko won the first bracelet of his career on Wednesday and Mercier made yet another Day 3. Event #32: Benny Glaser Goes Back-to-Back, Wins $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship Only three players returned for Day 4 of the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship and Benny Glaser, who had taken the chip lead late on Day 3, beat out Doug ‘Skippy’ Lorgeree and Matt Glantz to capture his second WSOP bracelet of the summer. “It’s surprising that I would win two gold bracelets, at all,” Glaser said. “But if I was going to win, it would have been in this game since this is my best game and the one I have played the most online.” Glaser’s win earned him $407,194 and pushed his 2016 WSOP earnings past the $700,000 mark. The 27 year old cherishes both of the bracelets he has won this summer but admitted the second one, the third of his career, might feel a little bit more special. “This win was more satisfying for multiple reasons. First, this final table was streamed and watched live whereas the other one wasn’t. The money was much bigger. And, going back to back just makes it feel more crazy and amazing. Jason Mercier finished eighth in this event for $39,269, his fifth cash of the summer. He now leads Glaser by almost 350 points in the race for WSOP Player of the Year. Final Table Payouts Benny Glaser $407,194 Doug Lorgeree $251,665 Matt Glantz $175,754 Grzegorz Trelski $125,125 Robert Campbell $90,846 Per Hildebrand $67,291 Todd Brunson $50,872 Jason Mercier $39,269 Felipe Ramos $30,965 Event #33: Adrian Mateos Leads $1,500 Summer Solstice into Day 4 Adrian Mateos sits atop the final 17 players in the $1,500 buy-in Summer Solstice event after Day 3. Mateos, who won the 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event and 2015 European Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event, bagged 1,763,000, which puts him over 450,000 ahead of any other player. Jon ‘PearlJammer’ Turner sits seventh with 904,000 while all-time online tournament earnings leader Chris Moorman is 15th after finishing Day 3 with 269,000. Among the 74 players who busted on Wednesday were Matt Giannetti (76th - $4,434), former #1-ranked player on PocketFives Aaron ‘ ‘ Gustavson (73rd - $4,434), James Akenhead (64th - $5,135) and Bruno Politano ($7,139). Action resumes Thursday at Noon PT. Top Ten Chip Counts Adrian Mateos - 1,763,000 Alexey Blyakher - 1,307,000 Ronald McGinnity - 1,200,000 Ralph Wong - 1,117,000 Alessandro Borsa - 1,024,000 David Tovar - 1,000,000 Jon Turner - 904,000 Martin Kozlov - 864,000 Koray Aldemir - 852,000 Jack Bridges - 804,000 Event #34: Andrey Zaichenko Wins First Bracelet in $1,500 Triple Draw [caption width="640"] Andrey Zaichenko won his first bracelet and the second for Russia in 2016 on Wednesday (WSOP photo)[/caption] Andrey Zaichenko beat out Jameson Painter heads-up to win the $1,500 Triple Draw event on Wednesday, giving the Russian poker community their second bracelet of 2016. “The bracelet is the goal which I wanted. This is so emotional for me. I cannot express what this means,” Zaichenko said. “In Russia, we have so many good players. I am just so glad to have my name now up there along with them.” Viatcheslav Ortynskiy won the first bracelet for Russia on Monday in the $3,000 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha event. Zaichenko credits a change in the games played in his native country for his success. “The last three years, I have been playing a lot more Limit poker. At first it was No- Limit, but now we play lots of Limit cash games in Russia. The result of these games in Russia is making us better here now (at the WSOP).” Jameson Painter finished runner-up and banked $72,878 in the process. Final Table Payouts Andrey Zaichenko - $117,947 Jameson Painter - $72,878 Guy Hareuveni - $46,992 Alexsandr Vinskii - $31,099 Adam Spiegelberg - $21,139 Andrii Nadieliaiev - $14,769 Andrew Kelsall - $10,614 Event #35: Thiago Nishijima Leads $5,000 Six Max No-Limit Hold'em Thiago Nishijima leads the final 21 players in what is arguably one of the most stacked No Limit Hold’em tournaments of the summer, the $5,000 Six Max NLHE event. Nishijima and Jason Koon are the only two players to finish with over 1,000,000 chips. Nishijima finished with 1,222,000 and Koon is right behind him with 1,142,000. WSOP bracelet winner Michael Gathy sits eighth with 724,000. Jake Schindler, Jonathan Little, Pratyush Buddiga, Felix Stephensen and Martin Finger all sit outside the top ten. While there were 197 players at the start of Day 3, only the top 82 earned any money. Included in the group of 61 players who busted but managed to cash were Jason Les (82nd - $7,466), Fabian Quoss ($7466), Dutch Boyd (68th - $7,595), Dietrich Fast (64th - $7,960), Cate Hall (62nd - $7,960), Ismael Bojang (53rd - $8,585) and Joe Hachem ($44th - $9,523). Ryan LaPlante, who won the $565 Pot Limit Omaha event in the opening week of the 2016 WSOP, finished 56th for his ninth cash this summer. There are nine different countries represented in the final 21 including Brazil, Spain, Austria, Poland, Norway, France, Australia, Belgium and the United States. Action resumes at Noon PT on Thursday. Top Ten Chip Counts Thiago Nishijima - 1,222,000 Jason Koon - 1,142,000 Saavedra Nunez - 994,000 Artur Koren - 808,000 Benjamin Reinhart - 796,000 Matthew Parry - 738,000 Alexander Lynskey - 728,000 Michael Gathy - 724,000 Samuel Bernabeu - 718,000 Thomas Boivin - 710,000 Event #36: Gleb Kovtunov Leads $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo into Day 3 Gleb Kovtunov might be the name at the top of the chip counts with just 13 players left in the $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo event but it’s almost impossible to ignore the guy sitting 11th. Jason Mercier has made yet another Day 3 in his quest for a third 2016 WSOP bracelet. Kovtunov bagged up 673,000 to finish just ahead of Timothy Burt (647,000), Per Hildebrand (597,000) and Fabrice Soulier (593,000). Mercier has just 96,000 - just a touch over three big bets - but seems confident he can find more magic in his bottle. Among the 47 players who didn’t survive Day 2 but did cash on Wednesday were Eli Elezra (60th - $3,763), James Obst (47th - $4,171), Mike Matusow (45th - $4,171), Marco Johnson (41st - $4,171), Robert Mizrachi (34th - $4,573) and Matt Savage (23rd - $5,942).

Kakel finished Day 1 with 151,800 to barely edge out Joe Serock for the lead. In fact, just 1,600 chips separate the top three players. Richard Austin ended the day with 149,200. Daniel Negreanu, who was excited to learn that Las Vegas had officially been granted an NHL expansion team on Wednesday, finished with 98,000, the 12th biggest stack. Other notables still the field include Dylan Linde, Toby Lewis, Juha Helppi, Matt Stout, Leif Force and Leo Wolpert. The event drew 776 players for a $1,047,600 prize pool with the eventual champion winning not only the bracelet, but $212,128. The top 117 will finish in the money with a min-cash worth $2,247.

He finished with 136,400, just ahead of the 131,900 that Rep Porter put in the bag. And while Benny Glaser won his second bracelet on Wednesday, Ian Johns put himself in contention for his third by building a stack of 109,000 - the third highest. Other notables still in the field include Alexey Makarov, Joe McKeehen, Jonathan Duhamel, Jesse Martin, Matt Matros, Terrence Chan, Jeffrey Lisandro, Jason Somerville, Chris Klodnicki and Brock Parker. The final 64 players will play another ten levels beginning at 2 PM PT.

  5. [caption width="640"] Andrey Zaichenko defended his title in the K Omaha Hi-Lo WCOOP event (PokerStars/Neil Stoddart photo)[/caption] Saturday’s World Championshiop of Poker Action final table action on PokerStars, which consisted of just two events playing to a winner, had a bit of a theme to it: back- to-back. Russia’s Andrey Zaichenko won the same event he won last year, $1,050 Eight Max Omaha Hi-Lo, while the runner-up, ‘hotmark777’, finished second in an event for the second straight day. Zaichenko topped the 185-player field in Event #71 High ($1,050 Eight Max Omahad Hi-Lo) to win $36,700.23. Last year he beat out 230 players to win that title. This is the third WCOOP title for Zaichenko, with his first coming in 2010 in a Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event. Dutch grinder ‘hotmark777’ finished second for $28,474.90. On Friday night he finished runner-up to Jens 'Fresh_oO_D' Lakemeier in Event #67 High ($1,050 Seven Card Stud). Third place went to ‘gangstachel9’ for $22,093.14. The only other final table on Saturday’s docket, Event #76 High($1,050 Six Max No Limit Hold’em (Turbo, Progressive KO)), came down to heads-up battle between Rachid Ben ‘SkaiWalkurrr’ Cherif and Andrey ‘drupa-lucker’ Chernokoz. Cherif eventually eliminated Chernokoz to win and collect the tournament’s final bounty to bring his total haul to just over $210,000. Chernokoz took home $80,831.06 plus an additional $10,154.29 in bounties. The final table also included Anton Wigg, Viktor Blom and Anthony Spinella.
