Head of Digital Media @ Pokercode

While the World Series of Poker was going in full force in the Nevadan desert, the Pokercode community managed to win prizes on the online and live felt. With community member ‘Kwansolo’ winning some WSOP jewellery during the WSOP Circuit Super Series taking place online.

Kwansolo wins WSOP Circuit Ring and $44,632

The WSOP is famous for its gold bracelets, but the Circuit events of the worlds biggest poker tour award golden rings instead. ‘Kwansolo’ is the new owner of one of these golden rings when he managed to finish on top of Event #9 - $525 Monster Stack. After an online grind of 8 hours he beat ‘idollar’ heads-up for the money and the glory, taking home $44,632 out of the $280,000 prize pool.

Winning a WSOP Circuit Ring also qualifies ‘Kwansolo’ for the Tournament of Champions taking place July 18th. The tournament awards a WSOP gold bracelet and the participants get to battle for a share of $1,000,000.

Matthias Wins €65,000 In IPS Main Event

There was plenty of live tournament action on European soil happening in June too and community member Matthias Nachtigal traveled to Rozvadov, Czech Republic, to compete in the Italian Poker Sport Main Event. The €250 tournament attracted a whopping 2,549 entries generating a prize pool of well over €500,000.

Matthias made a deal on the final table and ultimately bowed out in second place winning not only €55,000 but also a Main Event seat for the upcoming World Series of Poker Europe at the end of the year.

New Coach Mammoth Wins APL Series Tournament

Grzegorz ‘MammothTheGr8’ Kozieja joined the Pokercode coaching staff recently and he started his month pretty well after he won the Hold’em Bounty ¥630 of the APL Series on GGPoker for ¥24,760, which is about $3,700. He beat 230 players to claim the title, eliminating 12 of them in the process.

Jason Y Wins Two Trophies

Community member Jason Y was the first one to post in the ‘Success-Celebration’ channel in our Discord server during June. Jason had won not just one, but two trophies over at the GUKPT that was held in Luton.

The first event that Jason shipped was the £200 Pot Limit Omaha 4/5/6 cards tournament. A total of 107 entries started the tournament but it was Jason raising the trophy at the end and the £4,228 that came with it.

Only three days later Jason ended on top of the charts again when he won the £200 NLHE Turbo event. This time he left behind 80 players and claimed the first-place prize of £4,180.

Seth Achieves Biggest MTT Score

Seth shared with the Pokercode community that only recently he got into MTT poker. When he emerged victorious in the Bounty Hunters Deepstack Turbo $31.50 on GGPoker for $2,088 he was proud to share his biggest score in tournaments yet.

Seth’s victory itself was worth $775 but eliminating 13 players on his way to victory earned him another $1,313.
