Pedro Padilha named Online Player of the Year

The latest results propel Pedro Padilha to the top...

Pedro Padilha’s recent form is impressive. The Samba Poker Team member has consistently accumulated results in recent months and has been the highlight of 2024 so far. And this can be illustrated with a new feat achieved by the professional in recent days.

With 25% of the year already completed and with the great momentum of the season, Pedro Padilha has taken the lead in the race for the title of “Player of The Year” in online poker. Recent results, such as winning the Sunday High Roller at PokerStars yesterday, have propelled him to the top of the table.

In the race for the Best Online Poker Player of the Year ranking, Pedro Padilha starts April with 10,604 points, with a slight advantage over the runner-up. His main rival at the moment is British player Patrick Lauber, owner of the PokerStars nickname “JaegsPL”, who has 10,566 points.

Another player on the list who is doing well is Russian high-stakes regular Aleks Shepel. “draxalen” is in third place with 9,930 points. Other notable names in the top 10 are Uruguay’s Ramiro Petrone (9,189 points), Sweden’s Niklas Astedt (9,111) and Brazil’s Carlos Ribeiro (9,003).

If Padilha keeps up the consistency he’s shown so far, he’ll be hard to knock off the top spot. Is another achievement coming for Brazilian poker?

Pedro Neves spoils the wonder of Thomas Santerne’s double positioning in GGMillion$.

Pedro Neves spoils the wonder of Thomas Santerne's...

Tuesday night is time for GGPoker’s biggest regular tournament, the €10,000 buy-in event called GGMillion$.

This week has seen one of the strangest and most striking games since this High Roller saw the light. How do you eat this?

Well, double elimination on the bubble and a sitout by Thomas Santerne, who at the same time of the tournament we must think that he was traveling from the French capital to Andorra after dispatching the HU of the €50k of the EPT Paris.

Besides these two “holes” in the lineup, the highlight of the lineup was the lead of Damian Salas, with almost a stack ahead of Pedro Neves and the mysterious and supposedly wealthy businessman “spaise411”.

Finland’s Eelis Parssinen is the best known of the rest of the cast, where you’ll get a look at the play of Paulius Vaitiekunas, a former GGMillion$ winner when he called himself “redpillgame” and Andrii Derzhypilskyi, a WSOP Online event champion.

Alternatively, you might prefer the in-house production by GGPoker-associated player Steve Enriquez, who was supported by Alberto Perez “Catof” on the microphones.



There was little time to enjoy the Baltic players, who fell while Santerne was out of the game.

The Frenchman appeared again at a table of six where there were three players below 10bb. Salas was stealing chips from everywhere but Pedro Neves’ stack, and there wasn’t much more plastic left on the table.

Santerne was favored by the quick exit of the rest of the shorts, because it was no longer so easy to put pressure on him. In addition, Salas doubled him up in the blinds and in the next hand both Santerne and Neves made three kings and the €50k Paris champion took second place.

Neves recovered with KK against Damian Salas’ AK, who ate another cooler with KK against Santerne’s AA to finish in fourth place.

Neves managed to raise the stack of “spaise411” and went into the HU with 11M points against 2M, an advantage that did not diminish until the final hand.

Pedro Neves $289,015

Thomas Santerne $225,709

spaise411 $ 176,269

Damian Salas $137,659

visomar $107,506

Tuesday’s PokerStars tournament brought some good results for the Brazilian team and a repeat of the film from the previous day: one of the main highlights of the site’s starting lineup ended with a green-yellow victory. This time it was Gabriel Silva who achieved the feat and recorded the best result on the platform.

Flow Poker Team regular who runs the “Xisde-GR” account on PokerStars won a $55 Mini Bounty Builder HR. Gabriel Silva beat out 2,470 entries in this contest and ended up with $14,538 in his account. Keven Augusto (or “kevenppn”) also rounded out the podium, finishing in third place and earning $5,624.

In the best phase of his career, “Kevitto” achieved even more. Not content with a bronze medal, the pro won gold in another event. Keven Augusto defeated the $109 Phenomeno, leaving 297 players. That earned him an additional $5,631, bringing the two results to $11,255.

In the most expensive version of Bounty Builder ($530 HR), the two stars reached the finals of the tournament with 96 entrants. Marcelo Aziz finished second, earning $8,421, and Pedro Padilha was third, also on the podium, earning $4,413.
