Four Victories For "Windexxxx" In PokerStars Ontario's 2023 ONCOOP

September 25, 2023

Last week saw several screennames become main characters in the story of the 2023 ONCOOP. This last week, players have claimed multiple titles, won huge prizes, and earned prestigious trophies.

After a big kickoff on PokerStars Ontario last weekend, ONCOOP got properly underway. So far 75 of the 137 events have been completed putting us over the halfway mark.

ONCOOP is the Ontario-based segment of a wider concatenation of online poker festivals which PokerStars has called the North American Championship of Online Poker.

NACOOP also encompasses the PACOOP festival in Pennsylvania and the USCOOP festival in Michigan and New Jersey, both of which are running now with live reporting from our PokerNews team.

Win An NAPT Gold Pass

All three NACOOP series offer players a chance to win a share of massive prize pools. There is $2,000,000 guaranteed across ONCOOP, with $175,000 guaranteed for the ONCOOP Main Event alone.

PokerStars Ontario is also offering the ONCOOP Main Event champion a $20,000 NAPT Gold Pass which includes:

  • a US$5,300 seat at the NAPT High Roller,
  • return flights to Las Vegas, and
  • luxury accommodation in Vegas for nine nights.

*All dollar amounts are Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Climbing The Leaderboards

With around half the events of the series concluded the ONCOOP leaderboards are beginning to take shape. Whoever ends up in the top ten, there are cash prizes going, starting from $100 and rising to $2,500. The first-place finisher also wins this year's ONCOOP Player of the Series Trophy.

Several players are in the running, having earned multiple big wins across the series. At the top of the leaderboards is "windexxxx" with four titles, including an $11,359 victory in ONCOOP 71: Battle Royale.

Another strong contender is "dusty truth" with two titles, a second-place finish, and a sixth-place final table cash. "Dusty truth's" final table cash, just happened to be at the biggest final table of the series so far, ONCOOP 19: Ontario Sunday Special Championship.

"Eremys" Wins Sunday Special Championship

With a buy-in of $200 and 451 entries, the prize pool for ONCOOP 19: Ontario Sunday Special Championship hit $84,112 after rake. This made ONCOOP 19 the biggest event of the series so far.

The only other prize pool to come close to this sum was ONCOOP 70: Ontario Championship of PKO NLHE which hit $81,005 off the back of 85 entries and a $1,000 buy-in.

Sixty-three players made the money in ONCOOP 19, with "eremys" coming out on top at the final table to earn themselves an ONCOOP Championship title. After "eremys" negotiated a two-way chop with "brano9," that title was worth $14,143.

Second place was worth $12,086 for "Brano9."

Arlie Shaban Picks Up Another 2023 ONCOOP Title

Arlie "Pablo Poker" Shaban continues to try to beat the extraordinary five-title run he made at the 2022 ONCOOP.

Shaban was able to seal another first-place finish in ONCOOP 26: Session Starter.

This title is no doubt more satisfying after his previous victory in ONCOOP 2: Mini Kickoff PKO was superseded when the event was rerun on September 18.

Shaban had the added joy of winning for an audience. The Canadian pro was live streaming ONCOOP 26 on Twitch when he won. The footage, show him declaring himself not just the champion of ONCOOP 26 but also "the happiest guy ever."
