  1. The story of the World Series of Poker just wouldn’t be the same without the United Kingdom. Some of the most memorable players in its 51-year history have come from ‘across the pond’ to pit themselves against the toughest poker competition the world has to offer. David ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Chris Moorman, Roland de Wolfe, Luke Schwartz, Max Silver, and Liv Boeree are just some of the high-profile players that count themselves among the players who have helped the UK accumulate 51 WSOP gold bracelets, third-most of any country in the world. In 2020, the UK is poised perfectly to add to their WSOP trophy case with players from the UK dominating the online poker scene. York resident Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford has had a stranglehold on the worldwide #1 rank for the better part of two months. His countryman Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard sits right behind him, ranked #2 in the world. In total 12, of the current top 100 hail from the UK and that doesn’t even include the UK native considered one of the most feared tournament players, online or live, in the game today. In addition to Beresford and Leonard, here’s a look at some of the top-ranked talent of the United Kingdom who very well could be in the mix to win a World Series of Poker bracelet during the 2020 WSOP. Stephen Chidwick Stephen Chidwick is the aforementioned most-feared tournament player on the circuit. How good is Chidwick? His high-roller tournament peers gave him the award for “Toughest Opponent” at the 2020 Global Poker Awards and by any measure, he's generally considered the favorite in any given event he decides to play in. He’s sixth on the Hendon Mob All-Time Money List with over $34 million in career live cashes and has (at least) another $5 million in online earnings. There’s seemingly no award Chidwick hasn’t won - he was the inaugural U.S. Poker Open champion, the first-ever Australian Poker Open champion, he has WCOOP and SCOOP titles, and, yes, a World Series of Poker bracelet. In 2019, after missing most of the series, Chidwick won the very first event of the summer he entered in which happened to be the $25K PLO High Roller for $1,618,417. Should Chidwick decided to grind the entire WSOP schedule on GGPoker, he might just be the first person to win multiple online gold bracelets. Sam Grafton London grinder Sam Grafton may be known as a hilarious guy to hang out with off the felt, but when he’s playing poker he’s serious competition. It was just last year that Grafton hit a career-high score when he finished as the runner-up in the EPT Barcelona €100,000 Super High Roller for $1,453,517. That score helped him leap to more than $4.1 million in career live earnings on a resume that dates back to 2009 and includes results in over 10 countries around the world. In 2020, 'TheSquid' has been putting up big numbers online as well. A runner-up finish in the PokerStars High Rollers Series Main Event brought him a $343,095 score, a career-high online cash. He also notched two more six-figure scores this year including a victory in the PokerStars Summer Series High PKO Main Event for $128,497. Tom Hall Long-time poker pro Tom ‘Jabracada’ Hall is rapidly approaching $4 million in total online earnings thanks to consistent results that date back joining PocketFives back in 2010. Add to that his $2.75 million in life earning and you have a picture of a player who consistently puts himself in position to win tournaments. Hall has attended WSOP events dating back to 2013 and has over $180,000 in cashes over 24 results including a deep run in the 2017 Colossus where he finished in 27th place out of 18,054 runners proving he knows how to navigate through massive fields. That same year, Hall booked a win at the 888poker LIVE London Main Event for $104,170 less than a year after taking down the EPT Prague High Roller for $205,204. If Hall continues his bracelet chase on GGPoker, look for him to be making runs in the mid-stakes large field events. Tyler Goatcher The truth is, if you look at Tyler Goatcher’s live results, you might not be terribly impressed. He has just five total cashes on his Hendon Mob profile and zero experience at the World Series of Poker. But if you look up his screen name of ‘Wonderboy222’ you’ll see why he’s one of the UK’s most exciting players. Currently the #10-ranked player in the world, Goatcher has earned $3 million in career online earnings and is on a heater that any poker pro would die for. In March, he earned back-to-back partypoker POWERFEST titles right before he captured a May PokerStars SCOOP title in Event #54-H ($1,050 NLHE) for a career-high score of $107,504. Lately, Goatcher has been spending time racking up results in bounty event on GGPoker under his screen name ‘HELLODARKNESS’. Jack Sinclair London’s Jack Sinclair already has one bracelet, and it’s a big one. He took down the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event for a career-high score of $1,277,012 but most poker fans might remember him from his eighth-place finish in the 2017 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas where he won $1,200,000 on the televised final table. Despite all of that success, there’s no doubt that Sinclair would love to add some more WSOP to his collection. He’s been making the trek to Las Vegas and WSOP Europe since 2017 and has 18 cashes for a total of $2.8 million. Sinclair also grinds online, under the PokerStars screen name ‘Swaggersorus’ and has locked up a Spring Championship of Online Poker title.
  2. Over the past 50 years, for many, the World Series of Poker has grown into more than just a poker series. It’s become a pilgrimage of sorts. Players from all over the world head to Las Vegas to take their shot at battling against the best, bringing home a bracelet and possibly be crowned a World Champion. With the WSOP regularly taking place in the U.S., it’s no surprise that American players, far and away, have amassed the most bracelets in WSOP history. It’s nearly 20 times that of the next nearest country. But this year is different and the tables have turned. After the month of July, the focus of the bracelet chase will be handed over to GGPoker where the rest of the world will have the edge on grabbing gold as American players continue to be shut out of the global online poker scene. On GGPoker, players from nations from around the world who wouldn’t otherwise make it to the Rio this summer will be looking to add to their own poker resume while contributing to the WSOP legacy of their country. Brazil It’s no secret Brazilians love their poker. They also love playing online. In the history of PocketFives, four Brazilian players have climbed to the #1 worldwide ranking. But when it comes to the World Series of Poker, Brazil isn’t even in the top 10 countries when it comes to taking down WSOP events. Through the end of 2019, six players have earned a bracelet including one of those former #1-ranked online players, Yuri Martins Dzivielevski. Dzivielevski grabbed his first WSOP win just last year after taking down the $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Li 8 or Better event for over $213K. Dzivielevski, partypoker ambassador Joao Simeo, WSOP bracelet winner Andre Akkari, and GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos are just some of Brazil's top-flight talent that make it so it wouldn’t be unthinkable for Brazil’s total bracelet count to double in 2020. Canada The truth is, it’s been hard for Canada to compete for bracelets in the U.S. Not because of a lack of talent, there’s more than enough. But because of tax ramifications. When Canadians win at the WSOP they can lose as much as 30% to the US-Canada Tax Treaty, making it hard to be profitable in tournaments. That hasn’t stopped Canada from claiming the #2 spot with 60 total bracelets. Led by Daniel Negreanu and his six wins, Canada boasts numerous multi-time bracelet winners including Greg Mueller, Mark Radoja, Kristen Bicknell and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel, the first and only Canadian to hold that title. There’s a good chance for Canada to add to their legacy and strengthen their bracelet count in 2020. It’s well known that Negreanu, also a GGPoker ambassador, is going to charging hard for a bracelet with over $500,000 in bracelet bets on the line. Also online crushers like Bicknell, bracelet winner Mike Leah, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski, and recent PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker winner Mike Watson all have full reign to win without getting punished in the wallet simply for being great. United Kingdom Some of the most colorful characters to grace the World Series of Poker stage have come from the UK. Many of which have contributed to the country’s 51 bracelets. David ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, Luke Schwartz, Roland de Wolfe, Jake Cody, and Barny Boatman are just some of the legendary names that have posed for a WSOP winner’s photo and elevated the profile of poker in the UK. This year it will be a new crop of players who will lead the charge for England starting with the current #1 ranked online poker player in the world, Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. In fact, four of the top 20 online players in the world play from the UK including Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and Tyler ‘Wonderboy222’ Goatcher. In the history of the UK, only seven players have earned multiple bracelets and if there’s one player who is a favorite to join that club it would be high roller savant Stephen Chidwick. Chidwick, who holds a bracelet of his own, is one of the most talented tournament players in both the live and online arena. Provided he has the time, he could even have a shot at catching Benny Glaser, who holds the UK’s record as a three-time bracelet winner. Russia Russia and France both have 22 bracelets, but when it comes to playing online Russia gets a definitive edge. It’s impossible to forget the impact that Russian players have had on the World Series of Poker from Ivan Demidov’s runner-up finish the original November Nine for over $5.8 million to Vitaly Lunkin taking down the 40th WSOP Anniversary event for his second gold bracelet. But while Russia is another talent-rich country, it takes a lot of effort to make it from Moscow to the middle of the Amazon Room. While Dennis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov made the journey in 2019 and went home with a bracelet, many of the online crushers from Russia opt to grind online through the summer. It’s those players, like former #1-ranked ‘veeea’, who could break the tie with France this year and tack on to Russia’s total. That is unless Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier has anything to say about it. The truth is that for many countries, the series on GGPoker can really impact their gold bracelet standing. In China, there are four players who have won a bracelet. With GGPoker’s wide exposure to the Asian market, there’s a very good chance that that club will be adding some new members in 2020. There’s only one bracelet winner from Uruguay, Alex Komaromi, who won his at the WSOPE in 2015. Top-ranked players from Hungary, like ‘Wildace_hun’ have the chance to break a long-standing five-country tie of five bracelets. While none of these countries are going to make up much ground on the 1,1132 bracelets earned by Americans, the gold they take home this summer will be an important part of WSOP, and their countries, legacy in poker.
  3. For all that Steve O'Dwyer has accomplished in his poker career, both live and online, he has never managed to win a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title. That all changed on Wednesday when he took down a Super High Roller event for the second-largest score of his online career. O'Dwyer beat former #1-ranked Andras 'probirs' Nemeth heads-up to win Event #52 High ($25,000 NLHE Super High Roller) outright to earn $521,597.77 and his first SCOOP title. O'Dwyer's only bigger online score came in 2018 when he won the partypoker Powerfest Super High Roller Championship event for $896,610. Nemeth earned $403,096.26 for his runner-up performance and narrowly missed out on a two-title day. Nemeth won Event #52 Medium ($2,100 NLHE) for $157,734.78 to push his winnings for the day to more than $560,000. Chun Lei 'SamRostan' Zhou finished in third place for $311,516.98. A pair of former #1-ranked players battled for the title in Event #53 High ($2,100 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha 8-or-better). Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard outlasted Yuri 'theNERDguy' Dzivielevski heads-up to win the second SCOOP title of his career and $52,605.66. Dzivielevski took home $40,345.85 for his runner-up performance and fellow Brazilian Murilo 'Muka82' Figueiredo came in third place for $30,943.24. England's Tyler 'wonderboy222' Goatcher shipped Event #54-High ($1,050 NLHE) to add $107,503.65 to his bankroll. Joris 'BillLewinsky' Ruijs ended up with $80,159.99 as the runner-up and 'IDontBlufM8' earned $59,771.46 as the bronze medalist. Other players who picked up SCOOP titles on Wednesday included 'O''Pazzzo"' (Event #52-L), 'Kashmir_uzi' (Event #53-L), Tobias 'Senkel92' Leknes (Event #53-M), 'dmgs81' (Event #54-L), and 'vivaodesemprego' (Event #54-M).

  4. Niklas Astedt is one of the most successful online poker tournament players in history. Astedt has held down the #1 ranking on PocketFives 10 times in his career for a total of 85 weeks. On Sunday, the Swedish poker pro earned the sixth-largest cash of his career by winning Event #15 ($1,050 Weekender) of the World Poker Tour Online series. Astedt made his way through 117 other players before beating a final table that included Jens Lakemeier, Stefan Schillhabel, Manig Loeser, and eventual runner-up Tyler Goatcher. Astedt won $174,751.50 while Goatcher had to settle for $124,333. Sonny Franco came in third for $83,508.70. Matthew Wilkins earned the victory in Event #15 Mini ($109 Weekender) and pocketed $63,285.54. Astedt was the biggest winner on a day but there was a total of six WPT Online titles were awarded and the WPT Online Championship had a strong turnout for its opening Day 1 flight. Event #18 ($3,200 Pot Limit Omaha) had 128 Entries to created a $384,000 Prize Pool. Jacob Carl Schindler outlasted all of them to win the event and earn $96,731.94. Runner-up Mads Amot banked $65,280 for falling one spot short of a title while Espen Myrmo fell two spots short and earned $46,080. Rui Ferreira won Event #18 Mini ($320 Pot Limit Omaha) for $22,560.10 Viktor Ustimov defeated Robin Andreas Berggren heads-up to win Event #21 ($1,050 Mix-Max Turbo Bounty) for a total of just north of $60,000. Ustimov took $26,909.02 from the prize pool and then another $35,195.33 in bounties. Berggren took home $26,876.26 and $1,875 in bounties. A few days removed from winning a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title, Lucas Reeves narrowly missed out on a WPT Online title by finishing third for $19,397.91 and $5,007.81 in bounties. Adrian-Sorel State topped the 1,935-entry field in Event #21 Mini ($109 Mix-Max Turbo Bounty) to bank $11,422.11 and another $7,448.35 in bounties. The first of four WPT Main Event starting flights drew 808 entries to create a $2,424,000 prize pool. The event has a $5,000,000 guarantee which should be easily accomplished with Day 1B next Sunday, 1C and 1D next Monday. Abdelhakim Zoufri turned his 40,000 starting stack into 791,877 to bag the chip lead. Kevin Macdonald (668,081), and Julie Ribiero (590,228) rounded out the top three stacks. The WPT500 Day had its eight starting flight on Sunday with Ezequiel Waigel accumulating 435,201 chips to take into Day 2 on Monday.

  5. Heading into the final weekend of partypoker POWERFEST, the Friday schedule was a little lighter than usual. That didn't stop Tyler 'SupermanTY22' Goatcher from picking up his first POWERFEST title though. The UK grinder beat out 370 other entries to win Event #59 High ($215 Deep, Mix Max) for $15,000.06, the second largest online score of his career. Paul 'Sentapied' Senter finished runner-up for $11,100 while 'king_of_tainha' finished third for $8,062.50 to give Brits a clean sweep of the podium positions. 'Partyyycular' topped Event #60 High ($320 PKO, Eight Max) to win $7,698.81 plus an extra $11,533.42 in bounties.
