WCOOP: Six-figure score for BBZ coach Bungakat, a title for student ‘Trotmant’

WCOOP: Six-figure score for BBZ coach Bungakat, a title for student ‘Trotmant’

We’re not even a week into the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) on PokerStars and the BBZ Poker community already has plenty to celebrate.


The preeminent online poker series began on Sunday (September 4) and two prominent members of the BBZ team–one a head coach, the other a diligent student–have banked huge scores to kick their WCOOP series off with a bang.

BBZ’s own Jargo “Bungakat” Alaväli made a Day 2 on opening day and returned on Monday (Sep 5) night to play down to a winner in Event #4, a $1,050 8-Max event with $1.34 million in the prize pool.

ICM wizard Bungakat made it all the way to three-handed out of the 1,343 entrants but ended up short-stacked and card-dead and couldn’t forge a comeback. He fell in third place for $108,618–an incredible start to a series with plenty still to go. The title would go to Bulgaria’s “gettingpwned” ($208,485).

Bungakat Bundle

$99.99

The Bungakat Bundle is a one of a kind collection of final table reviews with Jargo “Bungakat”Alaväli, co-creator of the ICM Pre-Flop MasterClass. Featuring the likes of Parker “tonkaaaap” Talbot, Jon “luckyfish89” Clark, and more, this series will give you a front row seat to how some of BBZ brightest stars are playing, studying, and analyzing their biggest final table runs.

BONUS: 10 new hours of ChipEV content added!  Bungakat goes in-depth on a major population leak: playing vs. bets.

Not content with that, Bungakat was back on the grind on Tuesday night (Sep 6) and ended up taking down the ever-popular $530 Bounty Builder on PokerStars (the favorite tournament of both Lex Veldhuis and Fintan Hand).

He overcame a reg-heavy 245-entry field to win it all for $10,803 plus a monstrous $17,273 in bounties. That final table included the likes of Alex “pwndidi” Theologis and Andras “probirs” Nemeth.

Luckyfish Multi-Way Bundle

$99.99

Most of the training you have likely consumed over the course of your poker career has been focused on heads-up (1 on 1) play, but there are so many multi-way situations in today’s game that those 1 on 1 training guides don’t cover! Enter, Jon “luckyfish89” Clark. Jon has created a brand new multi-way bundle that focuses on one of the most understudied topics in poker – 3-way solves.

With over $500k in profits since 2016, Jon has the pedigree to back up his thought process. Not only will this bundle help you identify problem areas in your game, but Jon goes in depth on how to apply the various concepts derived from the Simple 3-way solves into your strategy.

Meanwhile, we already have a first-time WCOOP champion from our community.

BBZ student “Trotmant” took down the $55 PKO (#8) for $26,658 plus $18,610 in bounties, defeating a massive 9,900-entry field for a new career high.

“Incredible job and a ton of dedication and work ethic leading up to this!! Congratulations!!!” wrote Jordan “bigbluffzinc” Drummond in our Discord.

BBZ Bundle

$99.99

The BBZ Bundle is packed with a diverse selection of some of the most commonly misplayed and overlooked spots in MTT Poker. Head Coach Jordan Drummond systematically guides you through specific, interactive lectures, giving you an inside perspective on how the top pros at BBZ Poker are plugging their leaks and boosting their win-rate.

Available in English, Portuguese & Spanish

That’s because Trotmant–a 38-year-old from London–first came to BBZ Poker at the beginning of 2020 when he was, by his own admission, a “shit low-stakes reg”. But then he started studying with BBZ.

He joined BBZ’s Coaching for Profit programme and with that came rapid improvements in his play, which only continued as he climbed up through the online tournament stakes. Then, on June 4 2021, he “came of age” when he took down a $525 Bounty Hunters High Roller on GGPoker for a then career-best $24,045 score ($9,209 plus $14,835 in bounties).

He’s now smashed that.

“Getting better at poker is a process,” Trotmant told us. “You’re going to make mistakes as you try to learn new strategies and often you might get a little worse before you get better. So it’s really important to realise it’s a journey and it’s not a quick one.

“BBZ will provide you with all the support and tools you need to succeed, but at the end of the day, you still need to do the hard work yourself. This doesn’t account for variance, being patient and understanding that it can be normal to lose for a long time in tournaments. Many people give up far too soon or aren’t prepared to do the hard work that is required.”
