The storyline throughout the first two weeks of the 2021 World Series of Poker Online has been the dominance of the Brazilian contingent. The arena might be different, but early returns show that the 2021 World Championship of Online Poker just might follow that narrative. Three Brazilian players grabbed WCOOP titles on Monday, with Pedro ‘pvigar’ Garagnani the biggest winner of the bunch.

Garagnani topped the 200-entry field in Event #4-H ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max, High Roller) to win $195,690 and the second WCOOP title of his career. His first came in 2017. Finishing one spot behind Garagnani was Diego Ventura. The Peruvian superstar had to settle for the silver medal slot and $152,344.30. Third place went to Christian ‘WATnlos’ Rudolph.

The two other Brazilian winners on Monday came from Low buy-in events. ‘GuaranaDolly‘ won Event #3-L ($22 NLHE PKO Freezeout) and ‘OFaroFino‘ secured the bag in Event #6-L ($11 NLHE Six Max).

Jonathan ‘Proudflop’ Proudfoot, the #2-ranked player in the United Kingdom, won his first WCOOP title by beating a Brazilian heads up. Proudfoot, who has a Spring Championship of Online Poker title on his resume, beat ‘BLEFE GOD’ to win Event #2-H ($530 WCOOP Kickoff). Proudfoot walked away with a $90,131.09 score while ‘BLEFE GOD’ took home $65,440.33. Robert ‘kravm65’ Burlacu finished in third and earned $47,513.73.

Hungarian star Peter ‘twirlpro‘ Turmezy made his way through 459 other entries in WCOOP Event #3-H ($2,100 NLHE PKO, Sunday Warm-Up SE) to win his first WCOOP title. Along with the trophy, Turmezy added $134,505 to his lifetime earnings. Andrey ‘ThePateychuk’ Pateychuk finished runner-up.

The four-card game also got some run on Monday. ‘#Naktro91‘ won Event #5-H ($2,100 PLO Six Max) for $72,202.73. The event, which attracted 181 entries, had another Brazilian just miss out on the win. Dante ‘dantegoyaF’ Goya finished in second place for $54,577.76.

Anatoly ‘NL_Profit’ Filatov worked his way through 553 other entries in Event #6-H ($1,050 NLHE Six Max) to win the second WCOOP title of his career.  British pro Tyler ‘wonderboy222’ Goatcher finished runner-up while Austrian ‘Grozzorg’ took the final spot on the podium.

Dinesh ‘NastyMinder’ Alt won his second WCOOP title in as many years after shipping Event #11-H ($530 NLO8 8-Max PKO) for $27,168.77. It was the second final table of the day for Alt. He busted in seventh place in Event #4.
