  1. Many of the players grinding the Super High Roller Bowl Online on partypoker would probably have Viktor Blom in their list of most talented poker players. On Tuesday, the Swedish superstar lived up to that type of billing with a win and a runner-up finish that earned him nearly $580,000. Blom started the day off with a near-miss after falling to Dan Smith in the heads-up battle for Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller). Smith defeated the Swede to walk away with the title and $527,000 while Blom had to settle for earning $365,600. Third-place finisher Artur Martirosian earned $153,000 for his performance. Blom wasn't done though. He outlasted the 74 other entries in Event #9 ($10,300 High Roller) to win $213,750. The last player in his way, Christoph Vogelsang ended up taking home $146,250 while third-place finisher Arnaud Enselme walked away with $101,250. The day began with Luuk Gieles winning Event #7 ($10,300 High Roller) for $234,000. George Wolff fell one spot short of the win and earned $166,500. Ali Imsirovic grabbed a bronze medal and added $117,000 to his bankroll. Another three final events will crown champions on Wednesday with Events #10-#12 playing down to a winner.

  14. Four players earned rings in Sunday's WSOP Super Circut Online Series on GGPoker but only one of them walked away a millionaire. Costa Rica-based '800-522-4700' took down Event #8 ($25,000 High Roller Championship) for $2,198,292. Former #1-ranked Patrick 'Babu$hka' Leonard fell one spot short of the ring but took home $1,611,342 as a consolation prize. Third place finisher 'HotPot44' also picked up a seven-figure score, earning $1,181,110. The $25,000 buy-in event is the largest buy-in in WSOP Circuit history. The 505 entries built the prize pool to $12,372,500 making it the fifth largest online poker tournament prize pool ever. The only events with more money up for grabs were the 2019 and 2018 partypoker MILLIONS ($21,780,000 and $21,090,000), the PokerStars 14th Anniversary Sunday Million ($18,603,200), and the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million ($12,423,200).

Canada's 'ChilaxChuck' picked up the win and $442,041 for their efforts. Just missing out on the ring gave Austrian 'BailaMorena' a $330,250 payday while 'SillyRabbit' - another Canadian - earned $246,731 for finishing in third place.

  18. The legal volleying in the Mike Postle cheating scandal continued this week as two of the defendants sent the ball back in the direction of Veronica Brill and the 87 other plaintiffs. On Monday, King’s Casino Management Corp., the owner of Stones Gambling Hall, and Justin Kuraitis each filed separate motions to dismiss the recently amended complaints filed by the Brill's legal team. This is the latest development in the case which began in October 2019 when Mike Postle, Kuraitis, and Stones Gambling Hall were the subjects of a lawsuit brought by Brill and what was then 25 other plaintiffs which sought $30 million in damages after allegations of cheating by Postle in the Stones Live cash games came to light. In March, Stones filed an initial motion to dismiss where they built their argument centered around the argument that the lawsuit "reflects the oldest complaint of gamblers – that their lack of success means they were cheated." In early April, Postle was sued in Nevada by Marle Cordeiro for $30 million in damages. Two weeks ago, Mac Ver Standig, counsel for the 88 plaintiffs in California and Cordeiro in Nevada, filed motions in both states accusing Postle of using a ghostwriter in California and dodging service in the Nevada case. In their latest motion to dismiss, Stones' legal team claims that Brill et al failed to "articulate facts or law to support their claims" in the amended complaint filed in late March. The motion points out three specific reasons to dismiss: gambling losses are not considered damages under California law, the plaintiffs failed to "identify facts to cure the defects" in the amended complaint, and that plaintiffs were unable to counter any arguments or citations made by Stones in their initial response. "Plaintiffs have already had an opportunity to amend to address the concerns raised by Stones. In 56 pages, Plaintiffs failed to identify additional allegations they could make that would state claims for relief. They should not be granted leave to amend," the motion reads. Stones claims the complexity of a single hand of poker makes it nearly impossible to determine whether a particular player would have won or lost a particular hand and that properly assigning damages is subsequently impossible. "Plaintiffs cannot provide an accurate picture of their likelihood of winning because of the multitude of independent factors influencing how a hand of poker unfolds. They do not describe even a single hand in any detail, and the act of describing such a hand would make clear the impossibility of assessing proximate causation." Stones continues to ask the court to dismiss the libel complaint brought by Brill regarding a tweet sent from the official Stones Live Poker account in the aftermath of initial allegations against Postle being made public. The motion asks the court to dismiss the libel charge because "Stones did not, as Plaintiffs suggest, make “a public statement – that Ms. Brill’s allegations about Mr. Postle were ‘completely fabricated.’” The tweet generically referred to “allegations.”" Lawyers for Kuraitis, the Stones Tournament Director who was also responsible for the management of the streaming operation, took a similar stance and also claim in their motion that California law prevents gamblers from seeking resolution in court to any dispute regarding losses suffered at a casino. His lawyers also took issue with Brill's legal team citing cases "from two centuries ago". "On hands that defendant Postle won; he was the person who was “damaged”, not plaintiffs. On hands that defendant Postle lost, plaintiffs would not suffer damages, and certainly not damages proximately caused by any alleged cheating."
  19. Connor Drinan joined an elite club on Thursday and in the process helped form an even more elite one.

Event #58 High ($2,100 Heads-Up NLHE) had 119 runners with 'CatLover666' and Phil 'Grindation' McAllister battling through all of them to make the final where 'CatLover666' picked up the win and $71,400.
