Yuri Dzivielevski continues to record outstanding results. The player from Brazil managed to win the third title in the WCOOP series. He succeeded in WCOOP-48-H: $5,200 NLHE (8-Max, Progressive KO, Sunday Slam), where he earned a total of $245,535. He faced Brunno Botteon in the heads-up, and the entire road to victory wasn’t easy. Nevertheless, Dzivielevski managed to emerge in the first place.
Before WCOOP-48-H, the Brazilian managed to win a title in WCOOP-09-H: $1,050 NL 2-7 Single Draw, where he won $21,938. Moreover, he topped WCOOP-20-H: $1,050 HORSE for $31,115. This was his fourth overall WCOOP title. Before the three from this year, he had managed to win a championship in 2015.
However, his biggest WCOOP score wasn’t from a victory. In fact, Dzivielevski took part in the WCOOP Main Event in 2014, where he made it to the heads-up play but lost it to Fedor Holz. Despite losing, he managed to win the consolation prize of $1.2 million.
Dzivielevski wasn’t the only one to celebrate his third WCOOP title on Monday. In fact, he shared the spotlight with another great player – Tobias Leknes, who also won his third tournament. The Norwegian player is a specialist for mixed games, but he tried his luck in all kinds of formats that were offered as part of the festival. The last event he managed to win was WCOOP-49-M: $215 NLO8 (6-Max, Progressive KO), where he bagged a total of $23,963. That was Leknes’ sixth overall WCOOP title.
