  1. Three more high-stakes Super High Roller Bowl Online Series events wrapped up on Friday with Spain’s All-Time Money List leader, Adrian Mateos, adding to his outstanding poker resume with a SHRB Online title and another six-figure score. In the largest tournament of the day, Adrian Mateos outlasted the 61-entry field of Event #17 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 6-Max) to claim the $527,509.70 first-place prize. It was the second final table of the series for Mateos who also managed to make the money in Event #14 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 8-Max) where he finished in fifth place for an even $100,000. Mateos’ Friday score is the third largest of the series thus far falling in behind Justin Bonomo’s $622,634 win in Event #11 and Daniel Dvoress’ haul of $613,986.70 earlier in the week. For those keeping track of the $25K Super High Roller paydays, Mateos’ just barely beat out Dan Smith’s $527,000 victory in Event #8, despite the fact that there was $175,000 less in the prize pool. Seth Davies made a final table for the second time in three days, finishing as the runner-up in Event #17 for $343,125. Finishing in third was Ukraine’s Andrii Novak who earned $183,000 for his efforts. With his win in Event #16 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max) for $234,604.50, Russia’s Artur Martirosian has now stood on every step of the podium during the SHRB Online Series. On Wednesday, he finished as the runner-up to Justin Bonomo in Event #11 ($25,000 Super High Roller) for $405,000. Tuesday, he scored a bronze medal finish in Event #8 ($25,000 Super High Roller) which was good for $153,000. It’s been a solid spring for ‘marathur1’ who, in addition to his SHRB Online success, also shipped a pair of PokerStars SCOOP titles earlier in the month of May. Samuel Vousden wrapped up in second place and scored the six-figure sum $146,250 and Christopher Hunichen found his third final table in the past two days with a third-place finish for $90,000. Linus Loeliger battled through the 76-entry field of Event #18 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max) to score the $237,732.56 first-place prize in his first final-table appearance of the series. Vicent Bosca Ramon nearly became the second player to capture two SHRB Online titles but was forced to settle for second place and $148,200. David Peters followed up his victory on Thursday with a third-place finish and $91,200. Now, the inaugural Super High Roller Bowl Online Series enters its final weekend. Just a handful of events are left before the $102,000 buy-in, $3 million Gtd Super High Roller Bowl Online Main Event which gets underway on Monday, June 1. Event #16: $10,300 High Roller, 6-Max 75 entries $750,000 prize pool Artur Martirosian - $234,604.50 Samuel Vousden - $146,250 Christopher Hunichen - $90,000 Timothy Adams - $65,625 Michael Addamo - $46,875 Dan Smith - $31,875 Event #17: $25,500 Super High Roller, 6-Max 61 entries $1,525,000 prize pool Adrian Mateos - $527,509.70 Seth Davies - $343,125 Andrii Novak - $183,000 Jake Schindler - $137,250 Joao Vieira - $99,125 Vyacheslav Buldygin - $68,625 Event #18: $10,300 High Roller, 6-Max 76 entries $760,000 prize pool Linus Loeliger - $237,732.56 Vicent Bosca Ramon - $148,200 David Peters - $91,200 Sergi Reixach - $66,500 Selahaddin Bedir - $47,500 Anatoly Filatov - $32,300
  2. Just 48 hours after nearly capturing two Super High Roller Bowl Online Series prelim titles on the same day, online poker superstar Viktor Blom was back in the winner’s circle with another Super High Roller victory on Thursday. Blom topped the 40-entry field in Event #14 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 8-Max) to capture his second win in three days and a $407,500 payday. It marked the fourth SHRB Online Series final table cash for Blom, all of which have been either victories or runner-up finishes. His first score came last Sunday in Event #2 ($25,500 Super High Roller) where he finished as the runner-up to Christopher Hunichen, taking home $320,625. Then on Tuesday, Blom earned another second-place finish in Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller), falling to Dan Smith in heads-up play, which brought him $213,750. Finally, in Event #9 ($10,300 High Roller) Blom scored an outright win and added $213,750 to his totals. All told through 15 events, the man known as ‘Isildur1’ has earned more than $1.3 million in less than a week. Finishing right behind Blom in Event #14 was Mike Watson, who picked up $265,000 for second place. And David Peters found the podium for the second time on Thursday, finishing in third place for $165,000. David Peters’ first podium finish was in Event #13 ($10,300 High Roller, 8-Max) where he outlasted the 70-entry field to take down the $217,000 first-place prize. Joao Vieira finished as the runner-up which was good for $150,500. Then Justin Bonomo, who picked up the biggest win in the series thus far on Wednesday, notched another result with a third-place finish for $98,000. The third event on the schedule to wrap up today was Event #15 ($10,300 High Roller, 8-Max) which saw Mark Radoja take home the title and $195,000. Pauli Ayras fell in second place but locked up the six-figure sum of $132,000. Finally, Ole Schemion followed up his PokerStars SCOOP winning performance on Wednesday with a bronze in this one, taking home another $88,500. Three more high roller tournaments will wrap up on Friday including the conclusion of Event #17 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 6-Max) which has Adrian Mateos holding the overnight chip lead. Event #13: $10,300 High Roller, 8-Max 70 entries 700,000 prize pool David Peters - $217,000 Joao Vieira - $150,500 Justin Bonomo - $98,000 Matthias Eibinger - $63,000 Christopher Hunichen - $49,000 Aleksejs Meiess - $40,250 Kristen Bicknell - $33,250 Lucas Reeves - $26,250 Event #14: $25,500 Super High Roller, 8-Max 40 entries $1,000,000 prize pool Viktor Blom - $407,500 Michael Watson - $265,000 David Peters - $165,000 Adrian Mateos - $100,000 Sam Greenwood - $62,500 Event #15: $10,300 High Roller, 8-Max 60 entries $600,000 prize pool Mark Radoja - $195,000 Pauli Ayras - $132,000 Ole Schemion - $88,500 Guillaume Nolet - $55,500 Vyacheslav Buldygin - $43,500 Justin Bonomo - $34,500 Christopher Hunichen - $28,500 Timothy Adams - $22,500
  3. The World Poker Tour Online Series on partypoker had a pair of 6-Max titles up for grabs on Thursday night and two players seized the opportunity to claim their second victory of the series. Russian online pro Alexandr Trofimov topped the 210-entry field in Event #53 ($1,050 NLHE 6-Max) to claim the $42,819 first-place prize and his second WPT Online title. Last week, Trofimov secured his first series win in Event #33 ($215 6-Max Weekender) where he earned $74,938.20 for first place. As a double WPT Online title winner, Trofimov continues to pad his incredible online resume which includes six PocketFives Triple Crowns, two PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker victories, and even an FTOPS win from back in 2011. In order to lock down the victory, Trofimov had to best Sweden’s Bertil Andreas Samuelsson in heads-up play. The battle didn't go Samuelsson's way and the Swede was forced to settle for $31,080 as the runner-up. Had Samuelsson prevailed, it would have been he who was crowed the two-time champion. Just a week ago, he took down Event #26 ($265 Mini NL Bounty Hunter) where he earned $33,314.98 for first plus an additional $25,718.91. Canadian pro Mike Watson climbed into third place which was good for $22,155. It was a busy Thursday for Watson who also picked up $265,000 in a runner-up finish to Viktor Blom in the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series which is also taking place on partypoker at the same time. David Ivers also grabbed his second victory of the WPT Online series with a win in the smaller Event #53 ($109 NLHE Mini 6-Max) for $17,286. Ivers won his first title in Event #30 ($55 Mini NL Turbo Bounty) where he picked up a total score of over $9,200. Just as in the larger 6-Max tournament, had runner-up Alessandro Valli ended up the winner, he also would have been crowed a two-time champ. Instead, Valli walked away with $12,382 for second place while Poland’s Patryk Poterek finished up in third place and booked an $8,191 score. Event #52: $1,050 Second Chance Turbo 158 entries $158,000 prize pool George Mcdonald - $36,324.20 Andrei Chernokoz - $26,070 Tomas Paiva - $18,960 Simon Deadman - $13,430 Fahad Al Thani - $9,480 Luigi Andrea Shehadeh - $7,505 Francois Billard - $5,972.40 Gianluca Speranza - $4,740 Event #53: $1,050 6-Max 210 entries $210,000 prize pool Alexandr Trofimov - $42,819 Bertil Andreas Samuelsson - $31,080 Michael Watson - $22,155 Marc Macdonnell - $16,380 Ferenc Deak - $11,550 Alexandros Theologis - $8,820 Event #53: $109 Mini 6-Max 1005 entries $100,500 David Ivers - $17,286 Alessandro Valli - $12,381.60 Patryk Poterek - $8,190.75 Hristivoke Pavlovic - $5,487.30 Daniel Yerin - $3,889.35 Johannes Van Til - $2,753.70
  4. Another major online poker series kicked off this weekend as the preliminary events in Poker Central’s first-ever Super High Roller Bowl Online series brought out some of the biggest names in the game. The complete series, which takes place on partypoker, will run from May 23 through June 1 and guarantees $20 million in total prize money across 28 High Roller tournaments. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Chris Hunichen took home the largest score of the three opening day events, earning $479,250 for his victory in Event #2 ($25,500 No Limit Hold’em Super High Roller ). The two-day event saw a total of 54 entries which pushed the prize pool to $1,350,000. Hunichen’s score ranks as the second-largest online cash of his career, right behind his third-place finish in the 2018 PokerStars SCOOP $10K Main Event for which he took home over $618,000. ‘Big Huni’ defeated another online superstar for the title by besting Viktor Blom in heads-up play. Blom’s runner-up finish was good for $32,625 and comes just a day after finishing third in the WPT Online series PLO High Roller for which he earned $121,200. Mark Davis fell in third place and picked up $205,875. Jans Arends outlasted the 76-entry field of Event #1 ($10,300 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) to take home the $216,600 first-place prize. Finishing right behind him was the UK’s Ben Heath who secured $148,200 as the runner-up. Picking up the bronze was two-time Global Poker Index Player of the Year Alex Foxen who added another $102,600 to his bankroll. Also of note, former worldwide #1-ranked online pro Niklas Astedt finished in sixth place for $41,800 and Daniel Dvoress secured a min-cash of $22,800, his second cash in the first two events. Another player who cashed in two of the three events was Sergi Reixach, who took down Event #3 ($10,300 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for $191,750. Combined with his fifth-place finish in Event #1, Reixach’s two-score, one day total was just shy of $245,000. Just a week after picking up his fourth career SCOOP title, Mike Watson finished in second place, taking home $129,800 for his efforts. And another former #1-ranked PocketFiver found his way to the podium as Andras Nemeth finished up in third place for $87,025. Event #1: $10,300 High Roller 76 entries $760,000 prize pool Jans Arends - $216,600 Benjamin Heath - $148,200 Alex Foxen - $102,600 Jake Schindler - $68,400 Sergi Lloveras Reixach - $53,200 Niklas Astedt - $41,800 Juan Pardo Dominguez - $34,200 Christopher Fraser - $26,600 Event #2: $25,500 Super High Roller 8-Max 54 entries $1,350,000 prize pool Christopher Hunichen - $479.250 Viktor Blom - $320,625 Mark Davis - $205,875 Vicent Bosca Ramon - $131,625 Rob Lipkin - $87,750 Daniel Dvoress - $67,500 Timothy Adams - $57,375 Event #3: $10,300 High Roller 59 entries $590,000 prize pool Sergi Lloveras Reixach - $191,750 Michael Watson - $129,800 Andras Nemeth - $87,025 Vicent Bosca Ramon - $54,575 Juan Pardo Dominguez - $42,775 John O’ Shea - $33,925 Michael Addamo - $28,025 Jonathan VanFleet - $22,125
  5. One of the most prolific nosebleed tournament players of all time was, once again, collecting a huge payday as Justin Bonomo took down his first Super High Roller Bowl Online title for the largest payday of the series thus far. Bonomo, currently ranked #2 on the Hendon Mob’s All-Time Money List, outlasted the 72 entry-field in Event #11 ($25,500 Super High Roller 6-Max) to capture the $622,634.40 first-place prize, the single largest payday of the series through 12 events. Bonomo fended off Artur Martirosian in heads-up play, leaving Martirosian to collect $405,000 as the runner-up. This is the second Super High Roller result for Martirosian in as many days as he is coming off a third-place result in Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller) where he picked up a $153,000 score. It was a good day for Poker Code coach Matthias Eibinger who finished in third place, earning $216,000 in what would turn out to be back-to-back cashes. In Event #10 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max), Vicent Bosca Ramon rose to the top of the 77-entry field to take home $240,860.62 for first. That's where Eibinger's second cash took place, finishing in second place for $150,150. His combined scores brought him a grand total of $366,150 in earnings on the day. Luuk Gieles grabbed the bronze for $92,400, just one day after winning Event #7 ($10,300 High Roller) for $234,000. Ludovic Geilich also found himself in the winner’s circle on Wednesday after taking down Event #12 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max) for $238,676.52. Alexandros Kolonias wrapped up as the runner-up and added $155,250 to his bankroll while Seth Davies also found the podium, earning $82,800 for third place. Thursday will see another three SHRB Online tournaments come to a conclusion as Events #13-15 play down to a winner. Event #10: $10,300 High Roller, 6-Max 77 entries $770,000 prize pool Vicent Bosca Ramon - $240,860.62 Matthias Eibinger - $150,150 Luuk Gieles - $92,400 Wiktor Malinowski - $67,375 Michael Watson - $48,125 Nick Petrangelo - $32,725 Event #11: $25,500 Super High Roller, 6-Max 72 entries $1,800,000 prize pool Justin Bonomo - $622,634.40 Artur Martirosian - $405,000 Matthias Eibinger - $216,000 Salahaddin Bedir - $162,000 Wiktor Malinowski - $117,000 Ali Imsirovic - $81,000 Event #12: $10,300 High Roller, 6-Max 69 entries 690,000 prize pool Ludovic Geilich - $238,676.52 Alexandros Kolonias - $155,250 Seth Davies - $82,800 Andrii Novak - $62,100 Giuseppe Iadisernia - $44,850 Jonathan Van Fleet - $31,050

  7. The conclusion of 888poker’s XL Inferno championship online series played out on Sunday as players flocked to take a shot in one of the biggest events 888poker has held hold all year, the $500,000 Gtd XL Inferno Main Event. It took over 12 hours, but in the end it was Sweden’s ‘junijuniorz’ who outlasted the 1,623 player field (523 rebuys) to turn their $250 buy-in into an $85,177.95 payday. Lithuania’s ‘KofeBryant’ fell just one spot short of the title but walked away with $60,618.06 as the runner-up. And ‘9salute46’ finished in third place which was good for a healthy $46,396.52 score.

The $20,000 Gtd Micro Main Event saw 3,502 players (1,725 rebuys) post their $5.50 buy-in in an effort to turn it into a four-figure score.

  9. This week online grinders logged on to 888poker to play in the heart of the 2020 XL Inferno schedule and vie for a piece of the online series’ $1.5 million in guaranteed prize pools. The promise of five-figure paydays always turns Event #17 ($100,000 High Roller) into a spotlight tournament on the schedule. With 255 players (71 total rebuys) the tournament just missed the guarantee by $2,200 and became the first to offer an overlay. That was good news for the players and especially for Germany’s ‘HSV_Gandi’ who took down the $320 High Roller and collected $20,450 for first. ‘Rocket_Aces’ finished as the runner-up and took home $15,000 for their efforts. Sweden’s ‘MorayEEEEEL’ just missed out on a second XL Inferno title, falling in third place and receiving $11,300. Russia’s #1-ranked online grinder Maksim ‘MAMOHT_T’ Mamonov climbed to the top of Event #18 ($30,000 Mini High Roller) and added $7,574.89 to his over $8 million in career lifetime earnings. It’s the first recorded XL title for the current #12-ranked player in the world. Right behind him was Ireland’s ‘Shovelin20’ who took home $5,493.70 for second place. Brazil’s ‘LeoJoseCame’ wrapped up in third which was good for $4,050.10. The mid-week PKO’s proved to be popular with guarantee-besting fields in all six of the events that took place. The UK’s ‘Mrpop01’ knocked out the competition in Event #20 ($50,000 PKO) to walk away with the $5,440.43 first-place prize and an additional $4,602.67 in bounties. ‘pow_indacage’ settled for second place and $4,039.87 with an additional $523.4 in bounties. The second bullet for ‘Boifx18’ paid off with a third-place finish which added $2,976.75 and an additional $2,237.10 to his bankroll. The second of the major PKO tournaments, Event #23 ($50,000 PKO 8-Max), was won by ‘sinke34’ who defeated the field of 340 players (with 102 rebuys) for a $6,381.53 payday with an additional $6,823.12 in bounties for a total score of $13,204. ‘mathi8ce’ finished as the runner-up and earned $4,723.87 and an additional $587.11. And Romania’s ‘Ph4N888’ took the final spot on the podium, winning $3,563.62 plus $2,165.61 in bounties for third place. What’s Next For XL Inferno Headed into the final weekend of the series all eyes will be on the $500,000 Gtd Main Event. Over 330 players are already registered for the Main Event having paid their $250 buy-in or found a way in through one of the many satellites that are still running. In the end, the XL Inferno Main Event champion will likely earn close to $100,000 and the majority of the final table will be logging off with an extra five-figures in their account.

  10. The day after the conclusion of their Championship Event, the World Poker Tour Online series rolled on and awarded two more trophies while looking forward to the next major event on the series - the WPT DeepStacks $3M Gtd Main Event. The first of the two winners on the day was Phillipp Hofbauer who rose above the 290-entry field in Event #44 ($1,050 8-Max) to claim the $59,700 first-place prize. The two-day event was one of the few on the WPT schedule to offer an overlay as players enjoyed an extra $10,000 added to cover the $300K guarantee. Finishing right behind Hofbauer was Enrico Camosci who took home $43,200 as the runner-up. Reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champion Hossein Ensan grabbed the bronze and added $30,300 to his substantial bankroll. In the smaller Event #44 ($109 Mini 8-Max) it was the UK’s Lee Jack who outlasted the event’s 1,067 runners to take home the title and $18,352.40 for first. Brazil’s Gustavo Mastelotto wrapped up as the runner-up and earned $13,145.44 for his efforts. Mats Bruland fell in third place, winning $8,696.05. As those two events were wrapping up, the star-studded Event #46 ($10,300 PLO High Roller) got underway. The two-day event was packed with some of the biggest names in the game and the final table, which concludes on Friday, reflects that. Linus Loeliger ended the night with the chip lead, followed by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Yuri Dzivielevski. Jason Mercier emerged in third place, followed by another online legend, Viktor Blom, in fourth place. The winner will walk away with over $279,000 for first-place. With the Championship Event in the books, players are now taking aim at the WPT DeepStacks Main Event and its $3,000,000 guarantee. There are daily starting flights running right up until the start of Day 2 which takes place on Tuesday, May 26. On Thursday, 299 players took a shot at building a stack with some notable names cruising into Day 2. At the end of the day it was Aram Zobian that finished with the biggest stack followed closely by Russia’s Sergei Denisov and Sean Roberts. Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot and Ryan Chamus also punched their tickets to Day 2 with more than 500,000 in chips. Also of note, partypoker ambassadors Partick Leonard and Kristen Bicknell were joined by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Christopher Oliver in surviving the day.

  11. Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan re-wrote the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker record books on Tuesday when he took down the $10K Pot Limit Omaha Main Event for an unprecedented fifth title in a single SCOOP series. It was less than a week ago when Drinan clinched his fourth SCOOP title by winning the $1K HORSE event, tying former #1-ranked PocketFiver Shaun Deeb for the most titles in a single series. But for Drinan, the heater continued and he surpassed Deeb by besting the 159-entry field in Event #75-H ($10,300 PLO 6-Max Main Event) for an online career-high $322,264.28 payday. Two of Drinan’s titles came in Pot Limit Omaha, one in Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better, one in No Limit Omaha, and one in HORSE. Altogether, the Chicago native’s victories earned him $567,287 in total prize money, pushing his career total cashes north of $8.8 million. Even though PokerStars has extended the 2020 SCOOP through the end of May, Drinan’s record-breaking run has come within a similar timeframe and number of events traditionally given to all players. So, anything that Drinan is able to add on in the weeks to come will simply be a bonus to one of the most amazing SCOOP performances to date. In order for Drinan to secure the victory in the $10K Pot Limit Omaha Main Event he first had to battle against PLO specialist Jens ‘Jeans89’ Kyllonen. Kyllonen fell just short of the title and was forced to settle for second place which was good for $245,286.27. Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira’s incredible SCOOP continued as well, taking third place for $186,695.89. The $10K SCOOP NLHE Main Event made a different kind of history on Tuesday as players battled for a chance to make the final table. For many, the road to the final table went through PokerStars ambassador Lex Veldhuis’ Twitch stream as he gave fans a taste of what it’s like to make a deep run in the Main Event. Early in the stream, Veldhuis, who is currently the top poker streamer on Twitch, broke through his own previous viewership record of 36K viewers. Then, after he busted his friend and fellow PokerStars ambassador Ben ‘Spraggy’ Spragg, his viewership skyrocketed past 50,000. It peaked at 58,799 which was not only a new record for Veldhuis, but an all-time record for viewers watching poker on Twitch. Veldhuis’ amazing run ended in 15th place where he collected $62,620.42. Just six eliminations later, the final table was set with Pieter ‘XMorphineX’ Aerts holding the overnight chip lead. Daniel ‘Oxota’ Dvoress and Brazil’s Pablo ‘pabritz’ Brito are also in the top three, both eclipsing 20 million in chips. High stakes tournament pro Michael ‘imluckbox’ Addamo, Raise Your Edge lead coach Benjamin ‘bencb789’ Rolle, and ‘Alexgirs’ are situated in the middle of the chip counts. And Max ‘goodeh99’ Silver, Alex ‘dynoalot’ Difelice, and ‘EEE27’ are situated on the short stacks. Play resumes on Wednesday where the winner will be awarded more than $1 million.

  12. Roughly two months after poker rooms across the country shut their doors in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are signs that some live poker operators are ready to back to business. UPDATE: Just hours after the publication of this article, agents from the California Department of Justice raided the Towers Casino and Card Room and shut it back down on the premise that the card room opened prematurely. Poker patron Matthew Boyle captured the moment on video and posted it to his Instagram feed.
  13. After four starting flights and 2,130 entries, the first-ever World Poker Tour Online Championship Event saw just 398 players return for Day 2 on Monday. And at the end of the day, it was Super High Roller savant Sam Greenwood who assumed the overnight chip lead heading into Day 3. Throughout the course of the week, thousands of players packed the lobbies of the WPT Online starting flights helping the WPT crush the event’s $5 million guarantee to the tune of a $6,390,000 prize pool. On Monday, the 398 players that survived those opening flights reunited online to battle for the over $1 million first-place prize. Only 35 of the 398 runners found a virtual bag with tournament specialist Sam Greenwood grabbing the top spot (4,635,621) followed closely by Pascal Hartmann (4,431,202), and Max Silver (4,340,422). Rounding out the top five chip counts are Rayan Chamas and Aram Zobian who also finished the day with over four million in chips. Other notable names to advance include Vincent Bosca Ramon, Amichal Barer, Benny Glaser, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Matthias Eibinger, Fabrizio Gonzalez, Viktor Ustimov, and World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson. Although 398 players returned for Day 2, only 312 of them were going to get paid. Justin Bonomo, Rui Ferreira, Daniel Dvoress, Christoph Vogelsang, and Ludovic Geilich were among the players who picked up a $5,942.70 min-cash, exiting not long after the money bubble burst. Koray Aldemir (273rd, $6,134.40), #1-ranked Conor Beresford (243rd, $6,326.10), Darren Elias (203rd, $6,645) were able to ladder up a little. Chance Kornuth (184th, $7,604.10), Wiktor Malinowski (149th, $8,882.10), Jorryt Van Hoof (123rd, $9,521.10), Dominik Nitsche (109th, $10,160.10), and Igor Kurganov (108th, $10,160.10) were among those who looked to make a run but fell outside of the top 100. Mohsin Charania (97th, $10,799.10), Simon Deadman (88th, $11,438.10), Mikita Badziakouski (68th, $13,035.60), Chris Kruk (57th, $14,185.80), and Kristen Bicknell (43rd, $16,741.80) were among those who nearly advanced to day three but ultimately fell just short. With 35 players left, everyone is guaranteed a payday of at least $18,594.90 while the top seven are promised a six-figure score. There were plenty of six-figure scores to be had in the two-day Event #37 ($25,500 Super High Roller) as 91 players battled for the over half-a-million first-place prize. After a deal was made, Dan Smith emerged victorious taking home $555,503.38 for first while Daniel Dvoress agreed to accept $456,871.63 as the runner-up. It turned out to be a nice day for Lucas Reeves as well, in addition to finishing in 51st place in the Championship Event for $15,463 he also claimed the bronze in the High Roller for a more substantial $295,750 payday. There were more huge scores to be had as those who had busted out of the Main Event were given another $3,200 event to play at the same time. Event #41 ($3,200 Second Chance Turbo) had 110 entries as Phillip Mighall booked the win and banked $80,850 for first. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Andras Nemeth finished as the runner-up, adding $57,750 to his bankroll. And while his brother was leading the Main Event, Luc Greenwood was bringing honor to the family name by claiming the bronze in the Second Chance, earning $41,250 for his efforts.

  14. The first weekend of 888poker’s XL Inferno championship series is in the books as online players turned out in force to battle for a piece of the over $1.5 million in guaranteed prize money. It should be no surprise to discover that each of the series’ tournaments to date has crushed their posted guarantee giving players at every level more than ample opportunity to pad their bankrolls. Thought 13 events, $609.043 in total prize pools have been awarded, more than $132,000 above the posted guarantees. Early Action The series started off with always popular $109 Opening Event. For 2020, the XL Inferno Opening Event got a guarantee boost up to $75,000 but it wasn't enough for the 636 players (and their 242 rebuys) that pushed the prize pool to $87,800. In the end, Sweden’s ‘MorayEEEEEL’ took home the XL title and $16,585.42 first-place prize. Right behind them was Romania’s ’noneda’ who finished as the runner-up and claimed $12,028.60 for their efforts. ‘Knaber666’ fell in third place but walked away with $8,867.80. Another early highlight came in the form of Event #4 ($55 buy-in, $30,000 PKO). The prize pool swelled to $44,900 as 668 players (230 rebuys) threw haymakers in search of an XL title. Romania’s ‘FishTankHero’ emerged as the winner grabbing $4,209.49 for first place and another $2,970.29 in bounties for a total score of $7,179.78. Romania dominated the final table, with five of the final nine hailing the country. The spotlight tournament of the first weekend was Event #10 ($109 buy-in, $150,000 Tune Up). The Tune Up is traditionally one of the biggest events on any given XL schedule and, like the Opening Event this year, it received a big boost to the guarantee, $50,000 to be exact, to make it even bigger. Players seemingly couldn’t pass up the opportunity to turn a $109 buy-in into a five-figure score as 1,137 runners (478 rebuys) helped 888poker best the increased guarantee with a prize pool of $161,500. Finland’s ‘MuckFest’ took down the title and the $28,230.20 first-place prize, the largest series score of the weekend. ‘ALLCasH90’ grabbed second place and $20,510.50 for their efforts while longtime 888poker grinder ‘GramNaKartke’ landed the bronze and $15,342.50 for their bankroll. What’s Next for XL Inferno More marquee tournaments are on the horizon for XL Inferno starting with the $100,000 High Roller which takes place on Tuesday, May 18. Immediately after that, the bounty hunters will have six straight PKO tournaments to enjoy including the $50,000 PKO 8-Max, the largest bounty tournament on the schedule. Then it's the $250 buy-in $500,000 Gtd Main Event which takes place on Sunday. Early registration for the tournament indicates that it will, once again, be one of the biggest events that 888poker holds all calendar year with players getting a shot at a first-place prize that closes in on six-figures.

  15. As summer approaches, online grinders have yet another major online series to look forward to. This week 888poker announced a May return for one of their marquee online poker series, XL Inferno. This year, XL Inferno will take place from May 14 - 24 providing online value hunters 34 events with over $1.5 million in guaranteed prize money spread out over the 11 days of action. As far as 888poker is concerned, if something is working well, there's no need to fix it. The 34-event schedule mirrors that of the 2020 XL Blizzard that took place in February. All of the events are the same, but players will appreciate that select popular tournaments received a bump in their guarantee. From the $75,000 Opening Event to the $100,000 High Roller, the schedule gives players at every bankroll level an XL title to fight for. That also means the return of one of 888poker’s biggest tournaments of the year, the XL Inferno $500,000 GTD Main Event. The Main Event of any given 888poker XL series offers players a shot at one of the largest paydays the online site will pay out all year long. With a buy-in of just $250, everyday players and recreational shot-takers have a tournament that can transform their bankroll with a six-figure score. In 2019, the XL Inferno Main Event saw 1,634 players push the prize pool to over $501,000. When it came down to the end, the final three players made a deal which ensured that all three of them would walk away with more than $50,000. Russia’s ‘D3n1sk4PP’ ended up taking home the XL Inferno Main Event crown and $70,252 for first-place. Brazil’s ‘LuisRRRRR’ banked $65,502 as the official runner-up and PocketFiver Lucas ‘lucasfalves9’ Ferreira finished in third place and earned a career-high cash of $55,543. The Main Event structure allows for plenty of play by giving players a 50,000 chips starting stack with 20-minute levels. Of course, in order to hit such a lofty guarantee rebuys are permitted for players who go broke in the early levels. Also, there’s plenty of late registration for those who are unable to hop in right when the tournament gets started. 888poker continues to offer players opportunities to win their way into the Main Event for far less than the $250 buy-in. There’s nothing cheaper than free and 888poker is running twice-daily freerolls for recent depositors. The Daily XL Inferno Qualifiers promises players no fewer than eight Main Event seats to be given away every day right up until the day before Main Event. There is also 888poker’s popular regularly-running satellite system that gives players a path to winning a Main Event seat starting at just $0.10. As players win lower stakes buy-ins they earn tickets for bigger satellites eventually rising through the ranks for a shot at a Main Event seat. So carve out some room on the calendar as all of the action kicks off on May 14th with the Opening Event and its new $75,000 guarantee. 888Poker 2020 XL Inferno Schedule DATE EVENT BUY-IN May-14 XL Inferno #1 - $75,000 Opening Event $109.00 XL Inferno #2 - $25,000 Mini Opening Event $16.50 XL Inferno #3 - $20,000 Late Opening Event $55.00 May-15 XL Inferno #4 - $30,000 PKO $55.00 XL Inferno #5 - $20,000 Mini PKO $22.00 XL Inferno #6 - $10,000 Late PKO $33.00 May-16 XL Inferno #7 - $30,000 8-Max $109.00 XL Inferno #8 - $10,000 Mini 8-Max $8.80 XL Inferno #9 - $15,000 Late 8-Max $55.00 May-17 XL Inferno #10 - $150,000 Tune Up $160.00 XL Inferno #11 - $50,000 Mini Tune Up $16.50 XL Inferno #12 - $15,000 Micro Tune Up $5.50 XL Inferno #13 - $20,000 Late Tune Up $55.00 May-18 XL Inferno #14 - $20,000 R&A Event $33.00 XL Inferno #15 - $10,000 Mini R&A $5.50 XL Inferno #16 - $15,000 Late R&A $16.50 May-19 XL Inferno #17 - $100,000 High Roller $320.00 XL Inferno #18 - $30,000 Mini High Roller $55.00 XL Inferno #19 - $20,000 Late High Roller $109.00 May-20 XL Inferno #20 - $50,000 PKO $109.00 XL Inferno #21 - $20,000 Mini PKO $16.50 XL Inferno #22 - $10,000 Late PKO $33.00 May-21 XL Inferno #23 - $50,000 PKO 8-Max $160.00 XL Inferno #24 - $20,000 Mini PKO 8-Max $22.00 XL Inferno #25 - $20,000 Late PKO 8-Max $55.00 May-22 XL Inferno #26 - $30,000 DeepStack $55.00 XL Inferno #27 - $20,000 Mini DeepStack $16.50 XL Inferno #28 - $15,000 Late DeepStack $33.00 May-23 XL Inferno #29 - $30,000 6-Max $109.00 XL Inferno #30 - $20,000 Mini 6-Max $16.50 XL Inferno #31 - $15,000 Late 6-Max $55.00 May-24 XL Inferno #32 - $500,000 Main Event $250.00 XL Inferno #33 - $50,000 Mini Main Event $33.00 XL Inferno #34 - $15,000 Micro Main Event $5.50
  16. Eight more World Poker Tour Online series titles were handed out over the weekend including one for the UK’s Elliott Peterman who survived the multi-flight 6-Max Weekender to take home nearly a quarter-million-dollar payday. Sixty-nine players made it to the final stage of $1 million guaranteed Event #33 ($2,100 6-Max Weekender) but it was Peterman who outlasted the star-studded field to take home the $235,508 first-place prize. Also notching six-figure scores were Italy's Eugenio Peralta who won $174,816 as the runner-up and Alexandros Kolonias who picked up $125,649 for finishing in third.

Australia’s Luke Martinelli added $42,997 to his bankroll with a third-place finish. A pair of non-NLHE tournaments actually incurred some slight overlays for the series. First, Muriel Figueredo took full advantage of a $12,500 overlay in Event #35 ($1,575 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) by besting the 125-entry field for the $50,381.20 first-place prize. Erik Tamm wrapped up as the runner-up which was good for $34,000. Mikko Alho grabbed third place and $24,000 for his efforts. Event #35 ($162 Mini Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) just barely missed the target as the 265-entry field came up just $250 short of the $40,000 guarantee. Emrah Yildiz rose to the top to claim the $9,400 first-place prize while Quentin Krueger settled for second and $6,200. Antti Suominen ended up in third place and picked up $4,407.92. A pair of former #1-ranked PocketFivers were in position to take home a WPT title in Event #36 ($1,050 Mix-Max Tubro) as Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff battled it out in the top three. However, both ended up falling to Stewart Kirby who closed out the tournament and picked up $38,037.86 as the winner. van Zadelhoff earned $25,670 as the runner-up while Leonard added $18,120 to his over $9.7 million in career online cashes. Markus Pohl was the last man standing in Event #38 ($530 6-Max Turbo Bounty) having survived the 638-entry field and banking the $22,387.82 first-place prize. Add to that another $27,239.31 in bounties and Pohl wrapped up the weekend with a total score of $49,627.13.

  20. Natural8 has patched up another pro as Pennsylvania-based grinder Thai Ha becomes the latest brand ambassador for the rapidly growing online poker site. The 29-year old Ha has already had quite an impressive career with over $2.3 million in career earnings and experience battling in live tournaments at some of the highest stakes. Now, he joins the likes of Danny Tang, Michael Soyza, Henri Bueller, and Kitty Kuo on the Natural8 roster. “I am looking forward to playing the rest of the APT schedule, as well as all the WSOPC events. The $1,000 WSOP Super Circuit Main Event with $5 million guaranteed will be very exciting, but I will same my run good for the $25,000 High Roller Championship with $10 million guaranteed,” Ha said. Natural8 has been making plenty of moves as of late, including helping the Asian Poker Tour take their 2020 schedule online for the very first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ha's live tournament resume is packed with results from high buy-in events. He was even one of the high-profile winners of a $25,000 Platinum Pass for the 2019 PokerStars PSPC. But there was a time that online poker was his main grind, spending several years as an online pro. “I have been playing poker since about 2013 when I was still in college,” Ha said to PocketFives last year. “Since 2014, after I graduated and couldn’t get the job I wanted until very recently, my only income was from poker.” Ha’s career has elevated with some exceptional scores over the past 12 months. They include a second-place finish in the $10,000 Short Deck event at the 2019 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, as well as a runner-up finish in the €25,500 Short Deck event at the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe for $511,788, a career-high cash. Despite not taking home the bracelet in either of those events, Ha's success in Short Deck has turned him into a bit of a Short Deck specialist. “It has the most fun, fast, and addicting action. That being said, I still like No Limit Hold’em tournaments and a mix of some Pot-Limit Omaha cash games,” Ha said. As a member of the Natural8 team, players can find him grinding online under his own name, “Thai Ha”, and splashing around in the mid-to-high stakes cash games and tournaments. For Ha, the features of the Natural8 software, which is part of the GGPoker Network, is just one of the things that made joining the team so enticing. “The Natural8 software makes me feel more relaxed. It’s more like playing a video game instead of poker. Being able to squeeze the river cards are fun as well, and the staking platform is also unique and easy to use. What gets me excited is the sound system, especially the all-in sound!” Ha is planning on playing the remaining schedule of the WSOP Super Circuit Series which runs through May 31.

  24. The legal battle in the ongoing cases against California-based poker player Mike Postle in connection with cheating allegations during the Stones Live cash games took another interesting turn this week. Postle is being accused of using a ghostwriter in his Motion to Dismiss the California case he faces against Veronica Brill and other named plaintiffs. Also, in an entirely separate matter, Postle is being accused of dodging service in the Nevada case brought by poker player Marle Cordeiro. On Tuesday, April 28 Maurice ‘Mac’ VerStandig, lead counsel for Veronica Brill and the other named plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Mike Postle, filed a pair of motions in federal court of the Eastern District of California in opposition to a previously filed Motion to Dismiss by Postle in late March. In the 36-page Opposition Motion to Postle’s Motion to Dismiss, Plaintiff’s counsel reinforced their arguments against Postle, bringing back the allegations of cheating while deconstructing Postle’s Motion to Dismiss in an effort to make sure the case will proceed. In a second California filing, VerStandig is asking for sanctions against Postle, accusing him of using a ghostwriter in filing his Motion to Dismiss. Alleged in VerStandig’s filed Motion for Sanctions, the Motion to Dismiss filing submitted and signed by Postle, who is not officially represented by a lawyer at this time, was “actively violating the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure” by either using a ghostwriter or, worse, plagiarizing another Motion to Dismiss filed by a lawyer known by Postle. While using ghostwriting in legal settings is not against the law, there are ethical concerns when a lawyer provides services without providing their name. “This case concern’s Mr. Postle’s representations he was honestly playing games of poker on his own when, in fact, he was cheating as such games with the help of one or more unidentified confederates. Unfortunately, it now appears his approach to this litigation is identical, as he purports to be a pro se litigant but is, in fact, having court papers ghostwritten by one or more unidentified attorneys.” The document alleges that the Motion to Dismiss the case submitted by Postle on March 25 was a “cleanly-drafted document, replete with citations to controlling law” in perfect format. That’s something VerStandig alleges Postle, who submitted the document under his own name, simply couldn’t do on his own without any legal background. The Motion for Sanctions then cites Postle’s relationship with attorney William Portanova who, while not formally representing Postle, was named as his attorney in an article in The Sacramento Bee. It compares the similarities between a Motion to Dismiss filed by Portanova in a totally unrelated case and Postle’s Motion to Dismiss, alleging that Postle either used Portanova as a ghostwriter or used it unauthorized. Citing numerous accounts of California courts discussing the ethics of ghostwriting, including a ruling that called it a “serious ethical breach”, the Plaintiffs counsel asked for the striking of Postle’s original filing and for him to essentially be instructed to file his own work or, if he has an attorney of record, to them be named and appear in court. At the same time, on Monday, VerStandig, representing poker player Marle Cordero in Nevada, filed a Motion for Alternative Service after alleging that Postle has “thus far avoided nine (9) separate efforts by a process server” as well as ignoring four emails and Twitter messages. In addition to direct contact, VerStandig reached out to and connected with Postle's mother to ask her to reach out to him to check his e-mail. Being unable to serve Postle through traditional means, VerStandig is looking for the court to serve Postle via FedEx to his home, via email and social media as a means that “will satisfy the rigors of governing law” and allow the case to proceed.
