Yuri Dzivielevski Becomes a Four-Time WSOP Bracelet Winner on GGPoker

Yuri Dzivielevski

The 2023 WSOP Online has passed the halfway point and has seen a few more poker players hit milestones of their own with the likes of Yuri Dzivielevski and Ognyan Dimov adding to their bracelet collection.

Dzivielevski romped to his fourth piece of WSOP hardware in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship, while Dimov secured his second in the PLOSSUS. Tomi Brouk and Aayush Arya also added their names to the list of this series' bracelet winners after paving their own way to poker glory in some No Limit Hold'em events.

Dzivielevski and Frank Blow Away Final Table

The PLO championship saw another seven-figure prize pool created, with the 153 entries duking it out for a share of the $1,484,100 collected. The top 20 players made the money and locked up the $19,159 min-cash. Sam Greenwood, Rui Ferreira and recent bracelet winner Leonid Yanovski were some of the names to depart at this stage.

Following the elimination of Daniel Dvoress in eighth place, Dzivielevski kicked off the final table with the quick elimination of compatriot Joao Simao. The latter saw his aces cracked as Dzivielevski rivered a king-high straight. Chris Frank, also a bracelet winner, then went on a heater to climb to the top of the chip counts and rapidly ousted Boris Angelov, Andrei Nikonov and David Mzareulov.

Dzivielevski then sent another countryman to the wrong side of the rail. His set of eights held out against the nut-flush draw held by Renan Bruschi to bring the tournament to heads-up play. Frank had the bigger stack going into the final two players, but Dzivielevski made quick work of his opponent and sealed the victory after his flopped set held out once again when facing another flush draw.

The win doubled Dzivielevski's bracelet tally in 2023 and further cemented himself as Brazil's most successful player at the WSOP. He also found success in the summer in Event #47: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E., in which he topped the 836-player field.

Marton Leads 100 Qualifiers in Hybrid Event

The #17: $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER in Paradise is a unique event on the schedule for this edition of the WSOP Online as it sees the tournament split into two stages.

The first part of the event played out online, which saw Israel's Gabor Marton end the session with the biggest stack. From the initial field of 3,496 entries, Martom is joined by 99 other players who made it over the first hurdle.

The pack of 100 survivors will then play the second half of the tournament in the live arena, with the action resuming at the inaugural WSOP Paradise, on December 4. A host of notable names have booked their place in The Bahamas, with the likes of Tom Orpaz, Leon Sturm and Alex Theologis making it through the online flight.

The tournament also came with an ambitious $5 million guarantee, but that figure could not be breached and was confirmed to have an overlay of $18,200.

Tomi "BAAABUUSKIIII" Brouk became Finland's tenth WSOP bracelet winner after he was the last player standing in #19: $777 LUCKY SEVENS Bounty 7-Handed NLH. He topped the 2,052 entry field and overcame "CioacAA57" in heads-up play to claim his maiden bracelet and the biggest slice of the $1,514,684 prize pool. The $89,041 in bounty prizes and the $60,970 first-place payout saw him walkway with a total prize of $150,011.

Niklas Astedt saw his WSOP drought continue and remained on the best without a bracelet list after he bowed out in fifth place. Still, any wounds were quickly soothed as the online crusher picked up a WCOOP title and $113K just a few days later.

Arya Turns $400 in Life-Changing Score

While the Millionaire Maker in Paradise failed to surpass its guarantee, the same can't be said for this series' COLOSSUS event, which also came with lofty ambitions for a tournament with just a $400 buy-in.

With a guarantee of $3 million, 7,979 entries were needed for that figure to be eclipsed. That was no problem, as 10,812 entries were recorded across the plethora of starting flights to create a final prize pool of $4,065,312.

Aayush Arya was the fortunate soul to get the lion's share of that figure after he bagged India's first bracelet of the series along with $326,901 in prize money.

Marcin Dziubdziela was one of the recognized names at the final table, while Patrick Leonard put in a deep run that ultimately ended in a 17th place finish ($15,151).

Ognyan Dimov

Ognyan Dimov kicked off 2023 in spectacular style, cashing in four events at the 2023 PCA for combined earnings of $1,061,005. A relatively quiet summer followed until the Bulgarian recaptured his earlier form after reigning supreme in #23: $400 PLOSSUS to pick up his second WSOP bracelet the other night.

Dimov conquered a massive field of 3,847 entries in Pot-Limit Omaha version of the aforementioned COLOSSUS and wound up boosting his bankroll by a further $148,786, almost double the prize that runner-up Zhiqiang Deng received.

Dimov's first bracelet win took place at the 2018 WSOP, where he finished in top spot in Event #17: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed for $378,743.
