  1. No, some of the best poker players in the world were not packed into the tables at the Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas chasing down World Series of Poker Circuit rings over the last two weeks. Players in Nevada and New Jersey were, in fact, playing on WSOP.com in the Planet Hollywood Circuit events with 12 rings on the line and the list of winners includes more than a handful of familiar faces including a pair of former #1-ranked online poker players. The 12-event series had a total guarantee of $1.125 million and all 12 tournaments easily cleared their individual guarantee to push the total prize pools to $1,791,499. Jared Jaffee Opens With a Win Jared Jaffee, who won his first WSOP Circuit ring at The Bicycle Club in Los Angeles in 2017, added another ring to his collection by outlasting 416 other entries in Event #1 ($250 NL Freezeout). Along with the win, Jaffee, playing under the screen name 'darrensrabbi', earned $23,804.44. Runner-up 'DaSurrealist' earned $13,359.63 while Zach 'ThePepster5' Epstein took third for $8,161.52. Ari Engel Breaks into Double Digits Ari Engel, who held the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings for five weeks in late 2006, became just the fourth player to win 10 WSOP Circuit rings when he bested the 151-entry field in Event #3 ($500 Big PLO $500). Engel banked $16,350.13 for the win. Daniel 'Bunzer07' Jordan, who won the WSOP Circuit Online $1,000 Six Max High Roller event back in January for his first career ring, fell one spot short of grabbing his second and had to settle for a $12,244 score. Seth 'weliketoprty' Anirudh finished in third for $9,186.87. Steve Gross Grabs First Ring Engel wasn't the only former #1 PocketFiver who grabbed some hardware. Steve Gross, who had four different reigns at the top for 55 total weeks, beat 469 other runners in Event #5 ($525 NL Monster Stack) for a $40,185 score and his first career Circuit ring. Michael 'miw201x' Wang finished one spot shy of the ring and added $29,727.50 to his bankroll. Jeff 'YanCanCook' Yanchek took third for $21,925.50.

  2. [caption width="641"] Steven van Zadelhoff has reason to smile after winning the WCOOP Main Event on Tuesday for a career-best .6M score (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Steven van Zadelhoff started the final table of the 2017 World Championship of Online Poker with three times as many chips as his nearest competitor and then went on to eliminate four of his eight final opponents to win the title and the $1.62M that came with it. The Dutch pro eliminated ‘romanooo64’ in eighth, Giorgos ‘Geokarak’ Karakoussis in sixth and Bernardo 'Machadada RS' Rocha in third to get heads-up. The last of van Zadelhoff’s victims, Canadian Joshua ‘joshuah333’ Herman, earned $1,173.712.87 for his runner-up finish. Herman was the only other player at the final table to hold the chip lead. The win was van Zadelhoff’s first WCOOP title and pushed his career online earnings to over $7 million, becoming the 31st player to hit that mark. While the score is clearly a career-high for the Dutch pro, van Zadelhoff openly admitted to not having a large piece of himself. Before the final table began on Tuesday, he explained the situation in a Facebook post. “After my big saturday session me and my super tired head completely forgot to properly book in two of my regular swaps for the main event... so i will not end up with the planned ~28% (had just lost $40k so wanted to swap loads, makes sense) - but instead with 'only' having 16% of my own action on the final table of the WCOOP later tonight. I am not gonna lie, i have felt smarter in my life lollll,” he wrote. Third place finisher Rocha, one of two Brazilians at the final table, earned $848,015.82 while his fellow countryman, Alexandre 'Cavalito' Mantovani walked away with $612,697.15. The event attracted 1,804 unique players with 379 taking advantage of the option to re-enter, creating a prize pool of $10,915,000. Event #79 (High): $5,200 Main Event Entries: 2,183 (1,804 entries + 379 re-entries) Prize pool: $10,915,000 Steven 'SvZff' van Zadelhoff - $1,624,502.27 Joshua ‘joshuah333’ Herman - $1,173,712.87 Bernardo 'Machadada RS' Rocha - $848,015.82 Alexandre 'Cavalito' Mantovani - $612,697.15 JeremiieLand - $442,677.47 Giorgos ‘Geokarak’ Karakoussis - $319,837.87 Kekkhou - $231,084.73 romanooo64 - $166,961.29 imluckbox - $120,630.39
