[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.

Markku 'markovitsus' Koplimaa had himself a very busy - and very fruitful - July as took down the PocketFives Leaderboard for the month. Koplimaa picked up 2,601 PLB points through his 20 qualifying cashes to win the Monthly PLB for the first time in his career. Koplimaa's biggest score came from a runner-up finish in the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up event on July 14. Not only did he win $22,826.70, but he also picked up 246.86 PLB points. His second biggest score came three days prior when he beat out 104 other players in the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily Supersonic for $12,785 and 231.3 PLB points. Those were the only two times that Koplimaa picked up more than 200 PLB points. He did have 16 other cashes that earned him between 108.31 and 180.68 points. The biggest of those scores came when he finished second to former #1 'veeea' in the High Roller Club $530 Sunday 500 on July 7. He added $12,179 to his winnings and 180.68 to his PLB total. He also won a $109 NLHE (Six Max Hyper-Turbo), a pair of Big $44s, a $215 Bounty Builder Saturday Special, and a Hotter $82 all in the month of July. Only two of his 20 qualifying cashes earned him less than 100 points. All told, Koplimaa cashed 397 times in July amassing $163,496 in winnings. Geraldo Cesar 'GeraldoCesar' Neto finished one spot and 133 PLB points behind Koplimaa. Neto's biggest score came on July 28 after he beat out 3,290 other players in the PokerStars $109 Bounty Builder to win $23,679.72 and 405.65 PLB points. That same day he took down the PokerStars Hotter $215 for $16,347 and 301.33 PLB points. He also final-tabled the PokerStars Sunday Million on July 21, finishing eighth for $11,891 and 300.25 PLB points. Former #1-ranked Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski rounded out the podium finishers, scoring 2,274 PLB points to finish third. Sikorski's biggest PLB score came thanks to his win in a 421-player field in the $215 Monday Six Max on PokerStars on July 22. Sikorski earned $15,185.10 and 290.17 PLB points. He also won the PokerStars Hotter $215 on July 14, and a pair of $109 Six Max events on July 18 and 31. The top-finishing American in July was New Jersey online poker grinder Vladimir 'Donate_here' Alexandrov who rode a third-place finish in the $3,200 High Roller bracelet event on WSOP.com on July 4. He won $173,241.39 and 694.53 PLB points. Playing only on regulated sites in New Jersey, Alexandrov managed a total of 23 cashes with 20 of them earning him enough points to crack the top five of the July PLB. Rounding out the top five, just nine points behind Alexandrov, was Britain's Patrick 'thebigdog09' Brooks. His biggest score came on July 14 when he took down the PokerStars Hotter $55 for $9,320 and 257.97 PLB points. Two days prior to that, he beat out the 252-player field in the High Roller Club: $530 Bounty Builder HR for $12,114 and 251 PLB points. The bottom half of the top 10 reads like a list of some of the best online players on the planet including Arsenii 'josef_shvejk' Karmatckii, and two former #1s 'girafganger7' and Chris 'Gettin Daize' Oliver.
