The race to become the WSOP 2020 Online Player of the Series is well and truly on. We are well pass the halfway stage and both leaderboards have taken shape. Daniel Dvoress is the man to catch in the overall leaderboard, which includes every bracelet-awarding event, while Eduardo “Xapliskinha” Garla leads the leaderboard for the Asian Time Zone events.
The winner of the WSOP 2020 Online Leaderboard (All Bracelet Events) walks away with a pure gold computer mouse, with the next four finishers getting their hands on a pure gold playing card to commemorate their achievements.
MILLIONAIRE MAKER champion Daniel Dvoress currently leads the raise for the golden mouse, but the chasing pack is hot on his heels.
Dvoress won his first WSOP bracelet plus a massive $1,489,289, the largest prize awarded at the series so far when he triumphed over 6,298-opponents in the $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER.
The Canadian avoids playing the WSOP in Las Vegas, but jumped at the chance to lock horns with poker’s elite when this year’s festival moved online.
Alek “astazz” Stasiak is Dvoress’ nearest rival when it comes to leaderboard points. Stasiak is the only player to-date that has managed to win a pair of bracelets at GGPoker. He won the Event #33: $1,111 Every 1 for Covid Relief for $343,203 before taking down Event #52: $1,000 No Limit Hold’em for an additional $273,505.
Unsurprisingly, Ivan “zufo16” Zufic is also in contention following his impressive victory in the value-packed Mini Main Event. Some 15,205 players bought into Event #63: $500 Mini Main Event and Zufic was the last man standing. His reward was a shiny gold bracelet and a whopping $843,460.
$400 COLOSSUS champion Ranno “RukKuRuku” Sootla is the man currently occupying fourth-place, while a massive shout-out has to go to the man in fifth-place right now. Brazil’s Belarmino De Souza hasn’t won an event yet but he’s cashed in 14 events, including a third-place finish in the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship for $156,688 and a runner-up finish in the $2,500 No Limit Hold’em 6-Handed for $261,249.
The winner of the Asian Time Zone Events Leaderboard receives a pure gold dragon trophy. If the leaderboards finished right now Eduardo “Xapliskinha” Garla would be its recipient.
Garla tops the charts thanks to his impressive victory in the Event #55: $8,000 No Limit Hold’em Asia Championship. This saw Garla secure his first gold bracelet and a cool $461,709.
Canada’s Nick “rdcrsn” Maimone is the man in second-place, approximately 340 points behind Garla. Maimone catapulted to this spot with his recent win in Event #69: $1,500 Marathon No Limit Hold’em, where he walked away with $302,472, a $15,000 WSOPE package and his first WSOP gold bracelet.
Roberto Romanello is the man currently rounding up the podium. He won Event #39: $1,500 No Limit Hold’em for $216,213 and also got his hand on his first WSOP bracelet, completing poker’s coveted Triple Crown of titles.
