BEHIND THE HEADLINES

Camilancefieldg ups the stakes in PoS race: The WCOOP Player of the Series race is always keenly contested, usually by a handful of players we have grown to know very well. But this year, a new contender has emerged in the form of Canada’s “Camilancefieldg”, a player we have only once encountered before, during Blowout Series. Back then Camilancefieldg won a $109 HORSE tournament, demonstrating his or her all-round ability, but they’ve taken it to new levels in this WCOOP. Over the first week, Camilancefieldg cashed no fewer than 36 times in WCOOP tournaments, including three final tables and two third-place finishes. That was enough to challenge at the top of the Player of the Series leader board. But last night Camilancefieldg went even better, winning the $1,050 Badugi (WCOOP-46-H), earning $18,632 and a lovely 100 Player of the Series leader board points. With Patrick “pads1161” Leonard also putting in a full schedule, and having won two titles already, it’s neck-and-neck at the top of the overall standings, where there’s a bonus $25,000 to the winner. But Camilancefieldg is also second in the “low” standings and second in the “medium” standings, so they are attacking on all fronts. It’s only going to get more interesting from here.

Peterman made chip-lead count

A particularly Super Tuesday for the Brits: The biggest tournaments concluding on Wednesday were the two broadly under the Super Tuesday branding: the $530 version (i.e., the “real” Super Tuesday) and the $5,200 version, which was a high roller. Elliott “elliottpet” Peterman was the runaway chip leader as the latter headed to its final table, and he was duly crowned champion a few hours later. Peterman is originally from the UK but now lives and plays in Costa Rica, meaning his triumph goes on the list as one for his adopted country. The $146,932 he won is all his, however, and came after he beat a field of 136 entries, and Austria’s Daniel “SmilleThHero” Smiljkovic heads up. He spiked an ace on the turn when his A♠9♠ went up against Smiljkovic’s pocket tens on the final hand. In the actual Super Tuesday, the UK’s “BetForNympho” beat Gleb “Ti0373” Tremzin heads up, after the pair agreed a deal three-handed, along with “1EP3” of Moldova. BetForNympho won $108,399 and a first WCOOP triumph, denying Tremzin what would have been his fifth.

De Souza completes PLO8 double: Brazil’s two-day WCOOP drought came to an end on Tuesday night as Belarmino “PaGaOVelhinho” De Souza and “FábioC.p.br” won the high and medium buy-in versions of WCOOP-43, the PLO8 Six-Max. While little is known of FábioC.p.br, who was winning his first WCOOP title along with $19,290 after a heads-up deal, De Souza is emerging as a force to be reckoned with at the PokerStars tables, particularly in this variant. This was his second WCOOP title of this year, having also won the $1K PLO8 Six-Max last week. That previous triumph earned him $32,835, and last night’s had $55,834 up top. It was a $2K buy-in and a field of 133. De Souza won a SCOOP title in 2020 and also has a title from Turbo Series, both hold’em events. But if he is also adding a specialism in PLO8 to his armoury, he could win many more. De Souza is only the third double champion of this series so far, after Dinesh Alt and Patrick Leonard.

STATES OF PLAY

A look at what’s happening in the events paused overnight:

  • The $1K Heads-Up played to its quarter finals, with newly-minted Team Pro Rafael “GM_VALTER” Moraes falling one step short. Moraes picked up $3,675 when he was knocked out in the round-of-16. Juan “Malaka$tyle” Pardo is the best-known player left, chasing what would be a first WCOOP title.
  • The other newsworthy nugget of information from tournaments resuming today focuses on Konstantin “krakukra” Maslak, who sits second in chips in the $1K 8-Max PKO. Maslak is third in the overall Player of the Series standings and a high finish in this one could send him to the top. There are 47 players left, of a starting field of 833, with Fintan “easywithaces” Hand also still involved. (He’s 47th at present.)

    TWITCH WATCH

    Fintan Hand goes by the moniker “easywithaces” but this spot was anything but. Despite sitting with aces in the small blind, and rivering a set, this wasn’t exactly plain sailing:


    TWEET OF THE DAY

    LFG!! indeed:


    COUNTRIES LEADER BOARD

    Normal service resumed in Latin America, where Brazil won its customary two titles and got the push to break records back on track. The leader board swelled to feature 32 countries thanks to first wins of this series for players from Costa Rica, Ireland and Romania.

    Current standings:

    23 titles — Brazil
    13 — Russia, UK
    10 — Austria

    1 — Andorra, Belgium, Costa Rica, Denmark, Georgia, Ireland, New Zealand, Romania, San Marino.


    PLAYER OF THE SERIES UPDATE

    Interesting. Very interesting. After Patrick “pads1161” Leonard returned to the top of the overall leader board last night, it might have seemed as though “Camilancefieldg”‘s challenge was over. But the Canadian bounced back with victory in the Badugi and the race is on once again. Ironically, Camilancefieldg’s decision to focus on that “high” designation badugi tournament means they lost their place at the top of the medium and low leader board. It’s so volatile out there. Here are the latest standings:
