  11. After four starting flights and 2,130 entries, the first-ever World Poker Tour Online Championship Event saw just 398 players return for Day 2 on Monday. And at the end of the day, it was Super High Roller savant Sam Greenwood who assumed the overnight chip lead heading into Day 3. Throughout the course of the week, thousands of players packed the lobbies of the WPT Online starting flights helping the WPT crush the event’s $5 million guarantee to the tune of a $6,390,000 prize pool. On Monday, the 398 players that survived those opening flights reunited online to battle for the over $1 million first-place prize. Only 35 of the 398 runners found a virtual bag with tournament specialist Sam Greenwood grabbing the top spot (4,635,621) followed closely by Pascal Hartmann (4,431,202), and Max Silver (4,340,422). Rounding out the top five chip counts are Rayan Chamas and Aram Zobian who also finished the day with over four million in chips. Other notable names to advance include Vincent Bosca Ramon, Amichal Barer, Benny Glaser, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Matthias Eibinger, Fabrizio Gonzalez, Viktor Ustimov, and World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson. Although 398 players returned for Day 2, only 312 of them were going to get paid. Justin Bonomo, Rui Ferreira, Daniel Dvoress, Christoph Vogelsang, and Ludovic Geilich were among the players who picked up a $5,942.70 min-cash, exiting not long after the money bubble burst. Koray Aldemir (273rd, $6,134.40), #1-ranked Conor Beresford (243rd, $6,326.10), Darren Elias (203rd, $6,645) were able to ladder up a little. Chance Kornuth (184th, $7,604.10), Wiktor Malinowski (149th, $8,882.10), Jorryt Van Hoof (123rd, $9,521.10), Dominik Nitsche (109th, $10,160.10), and Igor Kurganov (108th, $10,160.10) were among those who looked to make a run but fell outside of the top 100. Mohsin Charania (97th, $10,799.10), Simon Deadman (88th, $11,438.10), Mikita Badziakouski (68th, $13,035.60), Chris Kruk (57th, $14,185.80), and Kristen Bicknell (43rd, $16,741.80) were among those who nearly advanced to day three but ultimately fell just short. With 35 players left, everyone is guaranteed a payday of at least $18,594.90 while the top seven are promised a six-figure score. There were plenty of six-figure scores to be had in the two-day Event #37 ($25,500 Super High Roller) as 91 players battled for the over half-a-million first-place prize. After a deal was made, Dan Smith emerged victorious taking home $555,503.38 for first while Daniel Dvoress agreed to accept $456,871.63 as the runner-up. It turned out to be a nice day for Lucas Reeves as well, in addition to finishing in 51st place in the Championship Event for $15,463 he also claimed the bronze in the High Roller for a more substantial $295,750 payday. There were more huge scores to be had as those who had busted out of the Main Event were given another $3,200 event to play at the same time. Event #41 ($3,200 Second Chance Turbo) had 110 entries as Phillip Mighall booked the win and banked $80,850 for first. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Andras Nemeth finished as the runner-up, adding $57,750 to his bankroll. And while his brother was leading the Main Event, Luc Greenwood was bringing honor to the family name by claiming the bronze in the Second Chance, earning $41,250 for his efforts.

  12. A handful of WPT Online events wrapped up over the weekend on partypoker, although it was a quieter weekend for the series.

  13. There was a time in the not-too-distant past where Jason Mercier would put on a Springtime show on the online poker felt. Mercier is one of just 10 players to have won five PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker titles and was the 2015 SCOOP Player of the Year. On Friday night, the 33-year-old won his first World Poker Tour Online title after shipping Event #46 ($10,300 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller) for more than a quarter-million dollars. Mercier defeated Linus Loeliger heads-up to put a bow on topping the 101-player field to win $279,265. Loeliger ended up earning $176,750 while third-place finisher Viktor Blom walked away with $121,200.

  14. The day after the conclusion of their Championship Event, the World Poker Tour Online series rolled on and awarded two more trophies while looking forward to the next major event on the series - the WPT DeepStacks $3M Gtd Main Event. The first of the two winners on the day was Phillipp Hofbauer who rose above the 290-entry field in Event #44 ($1,050 8-Max) to claim the $59,700 first-place prize. The two-day event was one of the few on the WPT schedule to offer an overlay as players enjoyed an extra $10,000 added to cover the $300K guarantee. Finishing right behind Hofbauer was Enrico Camosci who took home $43,200 as the runner-up. Reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champion Hossein Ensan grabbed the bronze and added $30,300 to his substantial bankroll. In the smaller Event #44 ($109 Mini 8-Max) it was the UK’s Lee Jack who outlasted the event’s 1,067 runners to take home the title and $18,352.40 for first. Brazil’s Gustavo Mastelotto wrapped up as the runner-up and earned $13,145.44 for his efforts. Mats Bruland fell in third place, winning $8,696.05. As those two events were wrapping up, the star-studded Event #46 ($10,300 PLO High Roller) got underway. The two-day event was packed with some of the biggest names in the game and the final table, which concludes on Friday, reflects that. Linus Loeliger ended the night with the chip lead, followed by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Yuri Dzivielevski. Jason Mercier emerged in third place, followed by another online legend, Viktor Blom, in fourth place. The winner will walk away with over $279,000 for first-place. With the Championship Event in the books, players are now taking aim at the WPT DeepStacks Main Event and its $3,000,000 guarantee. There are daily starting flights running right up until the start of Day 2 which takes place on Tuesday, May 26. On Thursday, 299 players took a shot at building a stack with some notable names cruising into Day 2. At the end of the day it was Aram Zobian that finished with the biggest stack followed closely by Russia’s Sergei Denisov and Sean Roberts. Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot and Ryan Chamus also punched their tickets to Day 2 with more than 500,000 in chips. Also of note, partypoker ambassadors Partick Leonard and Kristen Bicknell were joined by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Christopher Oliver in surviving the day.

  15. The World Poker Tour Online Series on partypoker had a pair of 6-Max titles up for grabs on Thursday night and two players seized the opportunity to claim their second victory of the series. Russian online pro Alexandr Trofimov topped the 210-entry field in Event #53 ($1,050 NLHE 6-Max) to claim the $42,819 first-place prize and his second WPT Online title. Last week, Trofimov secured his first series win in Event #33 ($215 6-Max Weekender) where he earned $74,938.20 for first place. As a double WPT Online title winner, Trofimov continues to pad his incredible online resume which includes six PocketFives Triple Crowns, two PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker victories, and even an FTOPS win from back in 2011. In order to lock down the victory, Trofimov had to best Sweden’s Bertil Andreas Samuelsson in heads-up play. The battle didn't go Samuelsson's way and the Swede was forced to settle for $31,080 as the runner-up. Had Samuelsson prevailed, it would have been he who was crowed the two-time champion. Just a week ago, he took down Event #26 ($265 Mini NL Bounty Hunter) where he earned $33,314.98 for first plus an additional $25,718.91. Canadian pro Mike Watson climbed into third place which was good for $22,155. It was a busy Thursday for Watson who also picked up $265,000 in a runner-up finish to Viktor Blom in the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series which is also taking place on partypoker at the same time. David Ivers also grabbed his second victory of the WPT Online series with a win in the smaller Event #53 ($109 NLHE Mini 6-Max) for $17,286. Ivers won his first title in Event #30 ($55 Mini NL Turbo Bounty) where he picked up a total score of over $9,200. Just as in the larger 6-Max tournament, had runner-up Alessandro Valli ended up the winner, he also would have been crowed a two-time champ. Instead, Valli walked away with $12,382 for second place while Poland’s Patryk Poterek finished up in third place and booked an $8,191 score. Event #52: $1,050 Second Chance Turbo 158 entries $158,000 prize pool George Mcdonald - $36,324.20 Andrei Chernokoz - $26,070 Tomas Paiva - $18,960 Simon Deadman - $13,430 Fahad Al Thani - $9,480 Luigi Andrea Shehadeh - $7,505 Francois Billard - $5,972.40 Gianluca Speranza - $4,740 Event #53: $1,050 6-Max 210 entries $210,000 prize pool Alexandr Trofimov - $42,819 Bertil Andreas Samuelsson - $31,080 Michael Watson - $22,155 Marc Macdonnell - $16,380 Ferenc Deak - $11,550 Alexandros Theologis - $8,820 Event #53: $109 Mini 6-Max 1005 entries $100,500 David Ivers - $17,286 Alessandro Valli - $12,381.60 Patryk Poterek - $8,190.75 Hristivoke Pavlovic - $5,487.30 Daniel Yerin - $3,889.35 Johannes Van Til - $2,753.70
