  1. Jargo Alaväli is on a plane halfway to Croatia from his native Estonia and he’s pissed off. The 29-year-old poker pro isn’t dwelling on some bad beat or a hand he misplayed, but rather a coaching seminar that he had to miss because of the flight he’s on. It’s the first time he’s had to not attend the daily seminar and it breaks a promise he made to himself when he committed to getting better at the game over a year ago. Alaväli started playing poker for fun while in university long before he considered making a career out of it. It was just him and his college buddies playing with nothing but pride on the line. Eventually one of those buddies promised to transfer him $10 on an online poker site and he ran that up quickly after winning a $2.20 tournament for a little more than $1,000. This isn’t some amazing fairytale where he never deposited again and built a career off of that first $10. The $1,000 disappeared as quickly as it had arrived and he was still focused on his studies. That didn’t stop his friends from encouraging him to play more though. Randar 'LilBigKahuna' Sikk, a lifelong friend who was already a regular winner in the 180-man sit-n-gos on PokerStars, told him he had talent and if he wanted to put in the work to get better it could turn out to be a better-paying career than the IT one he was studying for. “He basically told me, ‘You have to start playing if you like the game because you can make a lot of money out of it,” Alaväli remembers. “He asked me once a year if I wanted to get started … I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m first going to finish up school and then I’m going to start. Then I gave it a shot.” Not exactly. Alaväli didn’t get his degree. He finished the semester before jumping into playing and learning full time. Sikk took him under his wing as a student and Alaväli deposited €100 of his own money to start the grind. It was a lot of money to him at the time, but he’s never looked back and built himself a bankroll since that allows him to make a good living playing mid-stakes MTTs. Just over three years ago, Alaväli wanted to take his poker learning to a new level and was struggling with what the logical and correct next step was for him as he continued to develop as a player. “Should I use more solvers? Should I not use solvers? I got lost in terms of direction where I should be going with my own game and how I should look at the game,” Alaväli admits. While doing his due diligence, Alaväli landed on BBZ Staking, which along with the staking, also offered coaching led by one of their co-founders Jordan Drummond. “It took off pretty fast, but it was basically because I was just working so hard. All I did was wake up, study, play for eight to 12 hours and then I’d study for another hour or two, running sims, answering hands, and posting hands (in the BBZ forum). Did everything I can to just get better every day,” Alaväli said. And that’s when the promise was made. Drummond was hosting live coaching seminars every single day and Alaväli promised himself that he wasn’t going to miss one - no excuses. “It just seemed the only way to do it at that point. ‘You're going to attend every day’. It's free for stable players. I just figured I cannot miss any of these as long as there is so much value. For one year there was just so much value in those because Jordan was doing most of them,” Alaväli said. “I just didn't see it being an excuse for anybody to miss it. Because you can watch the coachings on the phone. As long as you have internet you can manage to just set yourself into a position where you can always watch it. Back then we didn't have replays.” Results continued to come for Alaväli and the student eventually became the teacher. In mid-2018, Alaväli started thinking about creating a course of his own. He wanted to put together something that he felt wasn’t being properly addressed in the poker education marketplace. "There wasn't any solver-based content out there and everything was opinion-based. There was no multiway solver to even know what your opening ranges should look like at final tables," "The idea came to me basically because all the money is in the final table yet nobody really knew how to correctly play at final tables. Now there is MonkerSolver you can solve game for three-handed, six-handed, nine-handed strategies and that's what I did; got six-handed MonkerSolver solutions, studied them, and created a course based on solver solutions." Coming up with the idea was one thing, actually executing on it was another. Alaväli wasn’t quite sure how to structure the course and present the content in an easy-to-digest way. “Basically, the first plan was let's get the solutions, let's hardcore study the solutions and see from there how we can come up with the most simple logics and ideas for anybody to apply to their game,” Alaväli said. “It was October, November last year. We said, ‘Okay, let’s get it done and see how we can market it because the marketing and selling of the product is another big problem for us.” Around the same time, Drummond reached out to Alaväli about some other ideas. The conversation eventually turned to the ICM pre-flop course Alaväli was working on and Drummond expressed interest in bringing it inside the BBZ website. Over the next four months, Alaväli put the finishing touches on the content while helping integrate it into a re-designed BBZ website. The ICM Pre-Flop Masterclass officially launched in March and since then Alaväli has been focused mostly on coaching and improving the course while still finding the time to play as many MTTs as his schedule will allow. “It just drives me to know more about the game and just try and solve the game,” Alaväli said.”But playing is also fun. You have to be playing as well to understand what's going on in the games in general. I still need to play enough and be at the top of the game because I'm coaching so many players and I just need to be able to coach them. If I didn't play, it would be in a weird situation where I'm not playing, but I'm only studying.”
  2. The $30 million lawsuit brought against Mike Postle, Justin Kuraitis, and Stones Gambling Hall by Veronica Brill and more than 80 other poker players was dismissed on Wednesday. The lawsuit, which alleged Postle profited by cheating in poker games at Stones Gambling Hall in California on a live stream, alleged various claims of fraud, negligence, and libel against the three defendants. In a 24-page ruling released Wednesday afternoon, Judge William B. Shubb granted motions to dismiss brought by the three plaintiffs and effectively ruled against the 14 combined complaints. The ruling did leave open the possibility to revisit some of the complaints at a later date should Brill's legal team, lead by Mac Ver Standig, be willing to come forward with more information. Two issues that were common inside the complaint were California public policy against judicial resolution of civil claims arising out of gambling disputes and the fact that some of the complaints were tied to the rake collected by the host casino.
  3. When the final table of the Super High Roller Online $100,000 buy-in began Justin Bonomo's stack was neatly positioned in the back half of the final eight. He had five players in front of him including Sam Greenwood, David Peters, and chip leader Pauli Ayras. Five hours later, Bonomo was the only one with chips and a cool $1,775,000 score. The eight-handed final table was actually the bubble. Orpen Kisacikoglu started with the shortest stack and quickly fell victim to Michael Addamo to bust the $100,000 buy-in event with nothing to show for it. Just over 20 minutes later, Dan Shak eliminated Greenwood in seventh place. It took another 45 minutes before another player was shown the door. Ayras busted Linus Lloeliger in sixth. Just 20 minutes after that, Bonomo eliminated Shak before Addamo took over the role of the dream killer. Addams busted Ayras and Peters inside of a two-minute span to send the tournament to heads-up play while holding 65% of the chips in play. The first six eliminations of the final table took a little less than two hours and the heads-up portion of the tournament took just as long. Bonomo and Addamo traded the chip lead back and forth multiple times before the final hand. Addamo called from the button with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"] before Bonomo moved all-in with [poker card="kh"][poker card="5d"]. Addamo called and then could do nothing but watch the [poker card="kd"][poker card="th"][poker card="3h"] flop move Bonomo into the lead. The [poker card="kc"] and [poker card="3d"] cemented Addamo's fate and gave Bonomo the title. This win marks the third time that Bonomo has won a Super High Roller Bowl event. His first two Super High Roller Bowl wins both came in 2018. He beat out 74 other entries to win Super High Roller Bowl China for $4,823,077 and just over two months later topped the 48-entry field to win the Super High Roller Bowl in Las Vegas for $5,000,000. Super High Roller Bowl Online Payouts Justin Bonomo - $1,775,000 Michael Addamo - $1,187,500 David Peters - $762,500 Pauli Ayras - $487,500 Dan Shak - $325,000 Linus Loeliger - $250,000 Sam Greenwood - $212,500
  4. As the poker world has witnessed over the last several weeks, the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is usually an opportunity for the best players in the world to shine. The likes of Matthias Eibinger, Ole Schemion, Dominik Nitsche, Patrick Leonard, and Connor Drinan all managed to add SCOOP titles to their collections over the last 28 days. So it's rare to see a new name emerge through one of the tougher fields to claim victory and a massive score. That's exactly what happened on Tuesday however, as 2020 SCOOP drew to a close. 'b@d0s' beat out 2,438 other players to win Event #121 High ($1,050 NLHE PKO) for $153,478.18 from the prize pool and another $117,025.03 of bounties collected. This is the first significant cash for 'b@d0s'. Finishing in second-place earned 'AtanasPPP' a $153,477.36 score to go along with $13,404.31 in bounties. The current #1-ranked online poker player in the world, Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford finished in third place and won $91,061.65 as well as another $32,428.45 in bounties. Former #1-ranked Joao Simao also picked up a SCOOP title on the final day of play. After outlasting 416 other players, Simao beat Steve O'Dwyer heads-up to win Event #120 High ($2,100 NLHE Sunday Warm-Up SE) for $150,546.78. O'Dwyer, who has been as high as #7 on the Rankings, earned $112,819.20 for his runner-up performance. Third-place went to Job 'DeadNylan' Grebe and came with a $84,546.43 score. 'Kjeppen' won Event #119 High ($530 NLHE PKO) for $39,529.58 plus $40,683.69 more from bounties. Falling one spot short of the title, 'neverfoldQ5' had to settle for a $39,529.41 score and just $6,955.07 in bounties while third place went to 'iamivar' for $23,453.52 and $11,174.07. The last Pot Limit Omaha title of 2020 SCOOP went to 'jokkee_apart'. Topping the 265-player field in Event #122 High ($2,100 Six Max PLO) earned the Norwegian grinder a $101,164.68 payday. Austria's 'rObetOblancO' took second for $74,986.89 and '31PokerGod31' out of Romania finished in third place for $55,583.06. There were seven other players who earned SCOOP titles as the series wrapped up including 'plirio' (Event #119-L), 'tenyooo' (Event #119-M), 'Andrey_pok21' (Event #120-L), 'kappawhit3' (Event #120-M), 'snake8484' (Event #121-M), 'YYYeaHHH' (Event #122-L), 'Spowi07' (Event #122-M).

  5. The inaugural WSOP Super Circuit Online on GGPoker wrapped up on Sunday with the $1,000 buy-in Main Event blowing expectations and the $5 million guarantee away and three other events all exceeding the posting guarantee as four WSOP Circuit rings were awarded. Germany's 'schimmelgodx' topped the 9,779-entry field in Event #17 ($1,000 Main Event) to win $1,271,218.

There was also a Main Event for fans of the great game of Pot Limit Omaha. Event #16 ($1,000 PLO Main Event) had 2,614 runners with 'rubbherducky' outlasting all of them to win $362,619.

The final three players in Event #15 ($200 Monster Stack) chopped up more than $295,000 and after the deal was made Germany's 'waransan' earned $92,866 and the ring for being the eventual winner. Runner-up 'DameDolla' took home $88,153 while third-place finisher 'geladinhaRLS' had the biggest score of $113,898 thanks to having the chip lead when the deal was struck. wnt The final event on the schedule, Event #18 ($500 The Closer) went to Craig 'Goblue' Varnell.

  6. In the pantheon that is Swedish online poker players, Robin 'robinho' Ylitalo just might be the most underappreciated. Fellow Swedes Viktor Blom, Niklas Astedt, and Christian Jeppsson have all recently grabbed headlines and titles and on Sunday, Ylitalo took his turn in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. Ylitalo, who reached as high as #2 in the PocketFives Rankings, beat out 1,074 other players to win Event #116 High ($530 NLHE) for the first PokerStars.com SCOOP title of his career.

The final mixed game event on the 2020 SCOOP schedule had 262 entries and 'Summ3L' worked their way through all of them to win $25,004.95.

  8. The Super High Roller Bowl Online is a showcase for some of the world's best high stakes tournament players but it's quickly becoming a personal playground for Viktor Blom. On Saturday afternoon the Swedish superstar won SHRB Online title for the third time in the last six days. Blom beat out 54 other entries in Event #21 ($10,300 High Roller) to earn $195,250. Runner-up Isaac Haxton had to settle for a $130,625 score while third-place finisher Steve O'Dwyer earned $83,875.

He also finished runner-up to Dan Smith in Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller) to push his total winnings across those four events to $1,548,350.

  9. For the third time this year Mike 'SirWatts' Watson finished a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker event as the last player standing. And this time he beat a "god" to do it. Watson beat out 147 other players including his final opponent Borys 'GODofHU' Turitsa to win Event #113 High ($1,050 6+ Hold'em) for $29,997.02. Turitsa, who famously defeated Lex Veldhuis heads-up in PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Event #30 High ($2,100 8-Max NLHE) last September, had to settle for a $22,831.67 score while 'Bo$$ D4wg' won $17,377.98 as the third place finisher.

Watson may have been the highest profile winner on Friday, but he wasn't the biggest.

Hungarian Maszat 'noirduck' Marci topped the 356-entry field in Event #108 High ($1,050 NLHE) to win their first SCOOP title and $65,618.99. Pedro 'pvigar' Vinícius Garagnani had to console himself with $49,699.38 for falling one spot short of the title. Third place went to 'Korrinho' for $37,642.08. Andre 'Sira Al Aziz' Santos and 'xnrobix' each locked up six-figure scores after chopping up nearly $219,000 in Event #110 High ($5,200 Six Max PLO High Roller). Santos went on to win the title and banked $111,256.53 as a result while 'xnrobix' took the remaining $107,219.12. 'bmwcoupe' was eliminated in third and drove away with $72,729.85. The final two players in Event #111 High ($530 Six Max NLHE) also chopped. '$w4g4l1c10u$' earned the title and added $59,071.62 to their bankroll while 'KKremate' ended up with a $61,717.78 payday. Just before the deal was struck, 'OMGACEACEACE' was eliminated in third place for $35,640.78. The fastest event on Friday's slate was Event #114 High ($215 Heads-Up Zoom NLHE Turbo Progressive Total KO) which went to 'samuraiUA'. Along the way to the win, 'samuraiUA' collected $34,051.03 in bounties. Runner-up 'bigfishka44' took home $5,747.17. All prize money was in the form of bounties in this event.

  11. For the second time this year, Ole Schemion worked his way through a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker field to stand victorious. This time though, he doubled the payout of the first event and walked away with more than a quarter-million dollars. Schemion beat out 117 other entries to win Event #102 High ($10,300 NLHE High Roller) for a $258,639.29 payday.
