British Benny Glaser graces the World Championship of Online Poker 2023 on Pokerstars.com.
The most important headlines in the professional media were the enthusiastic response to his sixth win at the festival, making him the first person to win more in the same edition of the most important online poker festival Game players.
The reality is, with more to come than a week away, it’s odd that things would stay this way considering the rate at which the hybrid game specialists continue to rack up wins.
As the month goes by, The Seventh of Spades is finally here.

Benny focuses on the impact of the presence of certain opponents at the final table Difficult if. This is partly due to Glaser’s win in the high-level No-Limit Hold’em tournament WCOOP 94-H 6-Max Turbo $1,050, in which format experts are said to be better than him. Beyond that, there’s the novelty of not being surrounded by big-name players from the mixed game tournament.
Given Gavin Cochrane’s reputation and final position, Aliaksei Boika and Sam Greenwood have to be the toughest to crack. Despite the exceptional records of the 134 unique players competing, they are all competing for a spot on the championship podium. Indeed, Glaser’s toughness on the field must be tempered by the fact that Benny was forced to use the two respawns available to him.
Even more bizarrely, in his tweet, the seven-time Reborn Champion could set himself a new goal in this WCOOP of reaching the top of the evenness charts.
Seven wins are not enough for Glaser to lead the overall ranking of the festival, which is now led by the Russian specialist “FAL1st” and Renan Bruschi ) or Calvin Anderson’s more established players have fallen far behind in the title race.
- FAL1st 1675 points
- RunGodlike 1625 points
- Internett93o 1440 points
- pads1161 1425 points
Working against Glaser is the fact that the remaining events of the WCOOP, whether they are multi-day tournaments on Sunday or those starting on Tuesday (the last day of registration for the festival), are either NLHE or PLO format. There are no longer any events in the format.
That won’t slow down Glaser, as his low-level performance in the WCOOP Main Event in the PLO format proved. As for the NLHE, RunGodlike sold out all four entries in the Lo and Mid and has two more available for re-entry in the $10,300 Hi.
