Numbers in WSOP Online at GGPoker continue to grow after big events

Recent major events like the Millionaire Maker have inflated the nice WSOP Online numbers even more. The last week has seen the average number of entries rise from 3,754 last week to 3,830 this week.

The average prize pool has also climbed by about $300,000 over the last week to $2 million. The average payout has now ballooned to almost $299,896, an increase of almost $45,000 from last week.

The Millionaire Maker easily became the largest payout and prize pool of the series. The prize pool almost reached $9 million with Daniel Dvoress taking the title for $1.5 million.

With some nice tournaments set for the coming week, these numbers should continue. Here’s a look at all winners and statistics.

Two cashes, two WSOP bracelets

It’s been a dominating performance so far at GGPoker for Alex Stasiak. The Canadian first won Event 32: $1,111 Every 1 in for COVID Relief for $343,200.

In his second cash of the series, Stasiak did it again. He won Event 52: $1,000 No Limit Hold’em on Aug. 6 for $273,505. That made him the series first two-time winner, and that included the US half at WSOP.com.

Beyond that feat, he also becomes the first player to ever win two online bracelets. That’s quite a feat and he still has time to attempt the trifecta.

2011 Main Event final table player scores bracelet

Irish eyes were smiling for Eoghan O’Dea on Aug. 5 in Event 51: $400 Pot Limit Omaha. The Dublin, Ireland, native scored the first bracelet of his career and took home $100,945.

O’Dea is no stranger to WSOP success and now has almost $2.4 million in series winnings. That included a sixth-place finish in the 2011 Main Event for $1.7 million.

In 2019, he also scored a nice PLO finish in the $10,000 championship in Las Vegas. He took sixth in that event for $143,128. O’Dea now becomes the fifth Irish player to win a bracelet.

Poker runs in the O’Dea family. His father Donnacha O’Dea is a card-playing legend in Ireland. He made two Main Event final table appearances, finishing sixth in 1983 and ninth in 1991.

PLO seems to be a nice game for the O’Deas with Donnacha also winning his bracelet in the game in 1998.

Dvoress wins Millionaire Maker, vaults into top spot on WSOP Leaderboard

The battle for the player of the series continues to heat up. Last week, three Brazilians took the top three spots.

However, a pair of Canadians now slide into first and second place with Daniel Dvoress taking the lead. He took down the Millionaire Maker on Aug. 8 for $1.5 million.

A coach at the RunItOnce training site, Dvoress offered some thanks to a friend who offered some pre-tournament help.

This becomes just the latest huge score for Dvoress. He has more than $15 million in live tournament winnings. That includes winning the partypoker Live $250,000 Super High Roller Bowl in November for $4.1 million.

Here’s a look at the complete leaderboard:

  • 1st – Daniel Dvoress (Canada), 6,095.66
  • 2nd – Alek Stasiak (Canada), 5,973.95
  • 3rd – Ranno Sootla (Estonia), 4,931.59
  • 4th – Yuri Dzivielevski (Brazil), 4,334.47
  • 5th – Belarmino De Souza (Brazil), 3,968.44

Canada leads bracelet total by country

Which country will end the WSOP Online with the most bracelets? That remains to be seen, but Canada leads as of Aug. 11.

Wins by Dvoress, Alek Stasiak (2), and Kristen Bicknell move the country into the top spot.

Two other countries are just behind the Great White North. The United States and Brazil both have three winners each. 

Players from the United Kingdom have won two bracelets. No other country has more than one.

A look at the week ahead at GGPoker

The WSOP Online at GGPoker runs through Sept. 6 and plenty of action remains. In the coming week a few tournaments stand out

Don’t have enough for the $5,000 Main Event? Then check out the $500 Mini Main Event on Sunday, Aug. 16. The event comes with a $5 million guarantee – plenty of bang for the buck.

Another lower buy-in event should attract a nice number on Saturday, Aug. 15. The $300 Monster Stack Six-Handed (Asia Time Zone) should build a nice prize pool, though without a guarantee.

On Tuesday, Aug. 18, the $600 NLHE Deepstack Championship should bring out plenty of online rounders looking for a title. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.
