  1. [caption width="640"] Four more WCOOP titles were won on Friday.[/caption] Over the last several years, Brazilian poker players have found success in all of the PokerStars COOP events as they ascended to the top of the poker world. Bruno 'great dant' Volkmann became the latest Brazilian to grab a COOP title after taking down a World Championship of Online Poker event on Friday. Volkman beat the 862-entry field in Event #15 High ($1,050 Four Max No Limit Hold'em) to win $144,302.80. Down to the final two players, Volkmann and 'AmSoGood' agreed to a deal leaving $17,240 on the table. 'AmSoGood' earned $130,933.80 for his second place finish. This is by far the largest score Volkman's career. His previous best came in 2013 when he won the PokerStars Big $162 for $47,353. His win will also likely propel him back into the top 50 of the PocketFives Rankings. He currently sits #55. The biggest winner on Friday was Finland's 'messigoat10' who took down Event #16 High ($530 Progressive KO) - otherwise known as the half-price Thursday Thrill. With $123,590.76 for finishing in first, and an additional $77,670.73 in bounties collected, 'messigoat10' walked away from the event with just over $200,000 and his first WCOOP title. The event attracted 3,410 entries for a total prize pool of $861,025 with that same amount also available in bounties. Runner-up 'freddopizza' earned $87,390.59 for his finish and added $29,682.03 in bounties. The only non-Hold'em tournament that wrapped up Friday was Event #17 High ($215 Eight Game). Russia's 'ImLuckNuts' topped the 729-entry field to win just over $25,000. Former #1-ranked Brian 'brianm15' England made the final table, finishing fifth for $7,290. The first single-day event of the 2017 WCOOP schedule, Event #20 High ($530 Three Max Turbo PKO ZOOM) went to 'Graftekkel'. The Dutch player fired four bullets and ended up winning $53,659.31 for his win and another $39,200.07 in bounties.

  2. Online poker is a global game with players logging on and grinding from every part of the world. Every country has a #1-ranked player and here we take a look at some of those that lead the way in their home countries. Steve ‘MrTimCaum’ O’Dwyer - Ireland It’s hard to fathom that Steve 'MrTimCaum' O'Dwyer, one of the most feared high-rolling tournament beasts in the world, could find something new to achieve in poker. In 2018 he not only conquered the nosebleed live MTT scene he also, for the first time, he also cracked the worldwide top-10 online rankings. Currently sitting at a career-high ranking of #10, his second time touching that mark this year, he has taken over as the #1-ranked player in his adopted home country of Ireland. Not your typical online grinder, O’Dwyer gets his online volume when he can. More specifically, when he’s not traveling the world earning six and seven-figure sums. This year he’s been able to find a little time each month to steadily put in volume. The result has him eclipsing the $5 million in lifetime earnings mark. Combined with his live earnings, O’Dwyer has earned more than $30 million from the game of poker. In November, O’ Dwyer has made his presence felt online, regularly playing in the highest stakes tournament available. He’s managed three four-figure scores one of which was a victory in the November 20 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Super Tuesday for $31,451 and 394.97 points. With a few weeks left in 2018, should O’Dwyer continue to splash around in the new slate of daily high rollers, he may find himself peaking above his current worldwide standing. Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann - Brazil Hailing from Santa Catarina, online tournament pro Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann has surged in the rankings this month to become the new #1-ranked player in all of Brazil. His recent heater has not only allowed him to become the top grinder in his home country but he has also spiked a new career-high worldwide ranking, landing at #16 in the world this week. In the month of November, he has put in a healthy amount of volume, recording 87 cashes. Of those, five were good for podium finishes and seven were PLB qualifying scores. One of the highlights of his month came in the November 12 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily 500. He defeated a field of 119 to take home just over $13,000 and 243.93 PLB points. Earlier in the month, he put together a runner-up run in the bwin.com Sunday Main Event for $20,991 and another 270.58. Volkmann has also just recently vaulted past the $4 million lifetime earnings marker, making 2018 a career year for the Brazilian. Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone - Argentina It’s hard to remember a time that Argentina’s #1-ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone was not near the top of the rankings. A PocketFiver for less than to two years, he’s has continued to put up huge scores and keep himself in the top-10 mix. In 2018, Petrone made a push to top the worldwide rankings, reaching as high as #3 in the world. He currently rests ranked at #7. Petrone likes to put in big-time volume and this November is no different. So far, he amassed 108 total cashes to date for a total of over $180,000. He’s put together multiple five-figure scores including a victory in the November 4 edition of the partypoker Sunday Bounty High Roller for $17,281 and 235.27 PLB points. Just four days later, he returned to the site to take down the BIG Bounty High Roller for another $18,739 and 287.25 PLB points. This year has been a standout one for Petrone. He collected his largest career score with his runner-up finish in the PokerStars TCOOP Twin Main Event (Event #72) to take home a massive $282,436. How dominant is Petrone in Argentina? Well, he’s likely to be the #1 ranked pro there for some time as he’s 4600 PLB points ahead of ‘sonmo’, the next closest player. Nedelcu ‘Narcusus90’ Narcis - Romania The #1-ranked player in all of Romania is Bucharest resident Nedelcu ‘Narcusis90’ Narcis. The longtime PocketFiver is currently ranked #39 in the world and is headed to surpassing his previous rankings high of #32, which he last held in 2015. Narcis has had a dominant November by any standard. He cashed in 115 tournaments for a total of roughly $150,000. He has 12 PLB qualified cashes, five five-figure scores, and 21 podium finishes. Some of his highlights include a victory in the November 20 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily SuperSonic for over $19,000. On November 14 he took down another PokerStars High Roller Club for another $18,496, in a 24 hour-period where he won three tournaments and took third in another. With the amount of volume Narcis puts in, there’s an outside chance, as he currently sits as $2.88M in lifetime earnings, that he could hit $3 million by the end of the year. If not in 2018, he’ll for sure see the new milestone in the first couple of months of 2019. ‘etxnl01’ - The Netherlands With over $1.6 million in lifetime scores, The Netherlands’ #1-ranked grinder is ‘etxnl01’. An online pro for roughly five years, the player who goes by his shortened moniker ‘etx’ build his roll up from the micro stakes and now can be found mixing it up in some of the largest online tournament available. His day-to-day schedule consists of many mid-stakes contests and he regularly puts up four-figure cashes. In November, ‘etx’ has posted over 80 cashes for a total of nearly $35,000. He had five podium finishes and his highlight score was a final table finish in the November 10 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily 500 for $5,431. “I’m definitely happy with being ranked number one in The Netherlands right now on PocketFives,” ‘etx’ said in a recent interview. “But I also still look at the other rankings, like the general rankings, hoping to climb them and become a better player as well.” A new, in-depth profile on The Netherlands' ‘etxnl01’ is available on PocketFives right now.
  3. Six days of poker in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil culminated in an 11-hour final table on Sunday night as American Marty Mathis overcame one of Brazil's top-ranked online players in Bruno Volkmann to win the partypoker MILLIONS South America Main Event for $774,500. One time Brazilian Series of Poker Sao Paulo and PokerStars Sunday Millions champion Caio Hey began the final table on the short stack and he was not able to make a major pay jump. Samuel Gagnon raised from the hijack with the [poker card="7s"][poker card="7c"] and Hey looked down at the [poker card="2h"][poker card="2d"] in the small blind and three-bet shipped his short stack. Gagnon called and Hey needed help to stay alive. The flop came [poker card="js"][poker card="qc"][poker card="7h"] giving Gagnon a set and before the turn even hit Hey began saying his goodbyes. The board completed with the [poker card="4h"] and the [poker card="9c"] as Hey made his way to the cashier to receive his $255,936 sixth place prize. It took another hour and a half of action before the next player hit the rail. After a cutoff raise from Volkmann, the surging Mathis called from the button with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"]. Vlada Stojanovic then shipped his short stack from the big blind holding [poker card="ts"][poker card="tc"]. Volkmann got out of the way and Mathis quickly called. The flop came [poker card="3h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="qd"] giving Mathis the nut flush draw to go with his two over cards. Stojanovic’s tens couldn’t hold as the [poker card="9h"] arrived on the turn, effectively ending the hand. Serbia’s Stojanovic picked up a career-high cash of $307,123 for his fifth place finish. Four-handed play lasted for almost four hours before Volkmann found yet another victim. With blinds of 1,000,000/2,000,000, Gagnon raised to 4,500,000 from UTG with [poker card="qh"][poker card="7h"] and Volkmann called from the button with [poker card="4c"][poker card="4s"]. The flop came [poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3h"] and Gagnon checked and then called after Volkmann bet 5,500,000. The turn was the [poker card="4h"] and Gagnon checked again. Volkmann bet 12,500,000 and Gagnon called again. After the [poker card="kc"] river, Gagnon checked and Volkmann moved all in. Gagnon took some before calling all in only to see Volkmann show his turned set. Gagnon was out in fourth place for $370,000. Following Gagnon’s elimination, the three remaining players came to terms on a deal. Volkmann, who had nearly half the chips in play at this point, ended up with the biggest cut, taking home $687,500. Mathis earned Mathis $662,500 and Matas Cimbolas pocketed $558,000 with an additional $212,000 going to the eventual champion. Just 20 minutes later, Cimbolas was sent to the rail. Cimbolas raised to 5,000,000 from the button, Volkmann folded the small blind and Mathis defended his big blind. The flop came [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="5s"]. Mathis check-raised Cimbolas' bet of 4,000,000 to 11,100,000 and Cimbolas called. The turn was the [poker card="9s"] and Mathis bet 40,000,000. Cimbolas moved all in for 42,400,000 and Mathis called. Cimbolas tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="5d"] but Mathis showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"]. The meaningless river was the [poker card="9s"] and Cimbolas, who finished runner-up at a World Poker Tour event just last week, was out in third place for $R2,232,000 ($558,000). That pot gave Mathis 54.5% of the chips in play as heads up action began. A little less than an hour into heads up play, Volkmann doubled into the chip lead but in the two hours that followed, Mathis continued to work his way back into the top spot. With Volkmann down to just seven big blinds, the Brazilian moved all in with [poker card="qd"][poker card="2s"] and Mathis called with [poker card="qc"][poker card="8c"]. Volkmann couldn’t even find a chop on a [poker card="ad"][poker card="jh"][poker card="3d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="ts"] runout to give Mathis the title and a career-high score. Final Table Payouts Marty Mathis - $774,500 Bruno Volkmann - $687,500 Matas Cimbolas - $558,000 Samuel Gagnon - $370,000 Vlada Stojanovic - $300,000 Hey Carlos De Lima - $250,000
  4. The PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller fell one entrant short of hitting it's $100,000 guaranteed prize pool, but 49 players took to the action with five places paid. 'Striker33333' and 'WATnlos' cashed before 'fishbones11' took third for $16,828. It was then a battle of Sweden as former PocketFives #1 'Lena900' took on Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar. With $39,235 up top, it was Korsar who prevailed for victory, with 'Lena900' adding $25,696 to his lifetime online earnings. Finland's 'Dumari84' smashed their previous best online cash of $10,000 after coming through the mega-sized PokerStars $109 Sunday Million field to win $114,334. With a share of the $1,124,100 prize pool to play for, it was to back to basics in the Million, with the regular format returning after two weeks of PKO action. 'KennyyPowers' took the bronze medal for $60,208, before 'BluffedLife', who took fifth-place in the Million back in 2017, fell at the final hurdle and scooped $82,965 as runner-up. 'Dumari84' secured the six-figure payday and won close to double his total lifetime online cashes in just one evening. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] World ranked #12 Bruno 'great dant' Volkmann topped an 833 player-field in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller PKO. Brazil's Volkmann, who has over $5m in online cashes, defeated 'LeFaisao' heads-up, who took $25,800 + $2,138 in bounties as runner-up, with Volkmann continuing his great form to take the biggest share of the prize pool worth $35,198 + $32,493. Adam 'Adzman300' Maxwell battled through a 715 player-field to win the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up following a heads-up deal. Dusk Till Dawn Poker Room regular Maxwell agreed a money deal with 'DoePopoe' after Brazil's 'Dieferson09' had hit the rail in third for $12,794. Maxwell then came through the final battle for the gold medal alongside $21,903, with DoePopoe banking $20,023 as runner-up. partypoker pro Anatoly 'NL_Profit' Filatov added over $59,000 to his online bankroll after not one, but two, High Roller wins on his partner site. The Russian's first win came in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller Predator, with 71 entrants creating a $71,000 prize pool. Filatov saw off 'NewYorkJimmy' heads-up to bank $7,975 + $12,025 in bounties, before pushing on for his second title of the day in the partypoker $2,100 Sunday High Roller Gladiator. This time there was a 55 player-field to navigate and when 'Benetnasch' departed in third for $9,322 + $5,250 in bounties, 'wikidipidi', second for $14,599 + $4,593, was unable to prevent Filatov from picking up his second Sunday gold and a first-place prize worth $14,610 + $24,937.
