  2. In June, Russia's Viktor papan9_p$Ustimov won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up after a three-way deal and walked off with $66,000. That was the largest amount given out and Ustimov was one of four PocketFivers to make the final table. Although it was just his ninth tracked win, he has almost $500,000 in online tournament scores to his credit. "It's a great feeling," Ustimov told us after his big win. "In MTTs, you always want to be the first place finisher." The Warm-Up had over 2,300 entrants that week, although there was an overlay since the prize pool fell short of its $500,000 guarantee. He trades aluminum alloys by day and gets to play poker about four times a week. Other big scores for the Russian include third place finishes in the Bigger $55 and Sunday Second Chance for $40,000 combined as well as another final table in the Warm-Up a year ago for $18,000. He's the 25th-ranked player in his home nation. Ustimov started playing poker with friends in school. For him, the game marked a rivalry of sorts with his friends, which is why to this day he sticks to MTTs over cash games. He has $332,000 in winnings on PokerStars and another $112,000 on Full Tilt. He plays as papan9_p$ on both sites, so he's really easy to keep track of. As the title of our article relayed, Ustimov was on the national American football team in Russia called the White Wolves (pictured at top) as the first running back. He calls himself a "master of sports" in American football. The Russia poker community on PocketFives has almost 1,900 members who together have generated $182 million in winnings over the years. $12.2 million of that total came in the last three months. Russian players have amassed over 400,000 in the money finishes over the years. Visit PokerStars for more details about the weekly Warm-Up. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  7. Viktor 'papan9_p$' Ustimov had himself quite a day on Tuesday. The Russian grinder finished third in the final event of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online and then went on to earn the first PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title of his career. Ustimov outlasted 629 other players in Event #31 High ($530 4 Max NLHE) and made Guillaume 'Nolet20' Nolet a runner-up for the second time in two days. The win, Ustimov's first in a WCOOP event, came with a $54,378.13 payday while Nolet had to settle for $24,289.73. Fellow Russian 'YacuTTi' also scored a WCOOP title on Tuesday, after topping the 897-runner field in Event #29 High ($1,050 NLHE PKO). The victory was worth $63,991.96 and they added another $65,080.01 in bounties. The third Russian victor of the day, 'recusant_89' shipped Event #30 High ($530 Six Max NLO8) for $28,917.97 and their first WCOOP title. The biggest winner on the day came from the conclusion of the two-day Event #25 Medium ($2,100 NLHE Sunday Slam). Lithuanian 'NoTilit' beat Christian 'WATnlos' Rudolph heads up to win the title and $228,462.96. Rudolph added $167,305.66 to his bankroll for finishing second.

  8. That’s a wrap on the 2020 World Series of Poker as the final event of the series, Event #83 ($10,000 WSOP Super MILLION$) concluded with Connor Drinan eliminating his final six opponents to collect the $1,423,409 first-place prize and his first career gold bracelet. As one of the elite tournament players in the game today, Drinan’s victory came at the end of a WSOP grind that lasted over two months. After his record-setting PokerStars SCOOP performance, Drinan returned to Las Vegas and battled in the entire first half of tournaments on WSOP.com. He then flew to Mexico to compete in the second half of the series on GGPoker. In total, Drinan racked up 20 results, including three final tables, and more than $147,000 prior to his gold bracelet run. As a bonus, Drinan was one of the high-profile names that took Daniel Negreanu up on his $100,000 must-win bracelet bet. By winning, Drinan added another six-figure score to his total should Negreanu not find a way (or have the opportunity) to win a bracelet by the end of the year. The first elimination of the final table took place on the very first hand. From the button, Christopher Kruk put in a raise with [poker card="td"][poker card="9d"] and was called by Kenneth Smaron in the big blind who was holding [poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"] and sitting on a short stack. The flop came [poker card="jd"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"] and Smaron checked his top pair over to Kruk who put in a small bet with his flush and gutshot straight draw. Smaron check-shoved for the rest of his stack and Kruk insta-called. The [poker card="ad"] peeled off on the river, giving Kruk a flush and leaving Smaron drawing dead to the [poker card="2h"] river. Smaron exited in ninth place for $110,389. Roughly twenty minutes later, Sylvain Loosli put Russia’s Arsenii Malinov to the test for all his chips. When folded to in the small blind, Loosli raised enough to put Malinov all in with [poker card="9h"][poker card="7h"]. Malinov made the call with [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"] and just needed to hold to secure a double up. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7c"] flop gave Loosli two pair and a stranglehold on the hand. When the [poker card="2s"] hit the turn it was all over for Malinov who watched a meaningless [poker card="js"] hit the river. Malinov finished in eighth place for $152,113. In a span of 20 minutes, Kruk went from the chip lead to the rail. As the stacks evened out, Drinan put in an early raise with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ac"]. When it folded around to Kruk in the small blind, he moved all in for his final 20 big blinds with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"] only to be snap-called by Drinan. Although dominated, Kruk found some life on the [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"][poker card="3d"] flop. The [poker card="6h"] turn took away Kruk’s backdoor spades out and the [poker card="8h"] ended his run in seventh place for $209,609. With six left, Suraj Mishra found himself in great shape to retake the chip lead he started the day with. After Drinan opened with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"], Mishra shipped nearly 25 blind with [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"]. After taking some time, Drinan made the call. Mishra went from dominating to dominated after Drinan hit a set on the [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"][poker card="7h"] flop. The [poker card="5d"] opened up some flush draw outs or Mishra but the [poker card="kc"] river sent him home in sixth place, good for $288,836. The hand gave Drinan a considerable chip lead, which he never gave up. When just over 10 big blinds left in his stack, Loosli moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="4h"] and was called by Drinan in the big blind with the [poker card="as"][poker card="2h"]. The [poker card="8h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5c"] flop gave Loosli some additional outs but the [poker card="qd"] turn and [poker card="9d"] river was of no help. The former WSOP November Niner was forced to settle for sixth place and $398,010. Drinan spent the better part of the next thirty minutes padding his chip lead before he got into an all-in confrontation with former #1 ranked Chris Oliver. Oliver put in a raise for the majority of his stack with [poker card="as"][poker card="8s"] only to be three-bet by Drinan holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"]. Oliver made the call, putting his tournament at risk. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8c"] flop gave both players a pair but Oliver failed to improve through the [poker card="4s"] turn and the [poker card="td"] river. Oliver finished in fourth place for $548,450. Viktor Ustimov was next in Drinan’s sights. After Ustimov put in a raise with [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"], Drinan moved all in with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"]. Ustimov made the call and saw he was flipping for a shot to get back into the tournament. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"][poker card="js"] left Ustimov looking for a lot of help, which didn’t appear on the [poker card="5c"] turn, nor the [poker card="ts"] river. Ustimov took third place and logged off with a $755,754 payday. Drinan held an overwhelming chip lead headed into his heads-up battle with Daniyar Aubakirov, however Aubakirov kept it interesting. However, even though Aubakirov secured two double-ups at different points in the match, Drinan was not going to be denied. Drinan found his way back to a better than 4:1 chip lead when Aubakirov moved his final fifteen big blinds all in with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"]. When Drinan made the call with [poker card="ac"][poker card="9s"], Aubakirov was on the verge of his third double up. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"][poker card="4s"] flop gave both top pair, but Aubakirov’s kicker was in play. The turn was the [poker card="8s"] but it was the [poker card="9c"] river that gave Drinan the hand, the tournament and his first career gold bracelet. Aubakirov finished as the runner-up and walked away with a $1,041,414 score. On the final tournament of the 2020 World Series of Poker, Connor Drinan locked up a $1,423,049 first-place prize, his first WSOP gold bracelet, and a $100,000 must-win bracelet side bet against Daniel Negreanu. Final Table Payouts Connor Drinan - $1,423,049 Daniyar Aubakirov - $1,041,414 Viktor Ustimov - $755,754 Chris Oliver - $548,450 Sylvain Loosli - $398,010 Suraj Mishra - $288,836 Christopher Kruk - $209,609 Arsenii Malinov - $152,113 Kenneth Smaron - $110,389
