With just four live cashes to his name before WSOP Europe kicked off last week, it would be fair to say that a lot of people probably overlooked Alex ‘Komarolo22’ Komaromi before the final table of the €2,200 Eight Game Mix event began. There were other players with pedigree at the final table including Shaun Deeb, Jonathan Duhamel and Scott Clements. That didn’t matter to Komaromi though as he eliminated four of his five opponents at the final table to win €65,740 ($74,800 US) and his first WSOP bracelet. He also became the first Uruguayan to win a WSOP bracelet. “It really means a lot. It’s like a dream to me. I started watching poker on TV with the World Series,” said Komaromi. “(It seemed) so far away. And now that I've achieved it, it’s great. I’m very happy.” The final table began Wednesday with Komaromi and the former LAPT winner showed no mercy. He eliminated Jens Lakemeier in sixth place after just an hour of play. He then denied Shaun Deeb his second bracelet of 2015 by busting him in fifth. Duhamel, also seeking his second bracelet of the year, was the only player sent to the rail by somebody other than Komaromi. Just before Day 2 wrapped up Duhamel found himself on the losing end of a Pot Limit Omaha pot with Clements and the 2012 WSOP Main Event champion was eliminated in fourth. At that point the three remaining players bagged their chips for the night. Komaromi had nearly 50% of the chips in play and when play resumed Thursday afternoon he made quick work of his final two opponents. In just under one hour of play, Noah Bronstein was eliminated in third place and Clements was out in second. Despite his dominance at the final table, Komaromi knew he was up against some of the best players in the world as the field began to dwindle. “When there were eight or ten players left, they were all pretty much elite players,” said Komaromi “(It was) hard to take advantage of most of the spots. I tried my best. I think I did good, and I ran good.” This marks the second straight year that Clements has finished runner-up in an Eight Game Mix event at the WSOP. In 2014 Clements finished second to George Danzer in the $5,000 Eight Game Mix at WSOP APAC. The next final table at WSOP Europe is the €3,250 No Limit Hold’em event on Friday. Final Table Payouts Alex Komaromi - €65,740 Scott Clements - €40,645 Noah Bronstein - €29,200 Jonathan Duhamel - €21,065 Shaun Deeb - €15,235 Jens Lakemeier - €11,025
[caption width="640"] Jens 'Fresh_oO_D' Lakemeier keeps adding titles to his collection (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Jens 'Fresh_oO_D' Lakemeier has quietly put together an impressive list of accomplishments over the last few years. In that time, the German has won a pair of European Poker Tour side events, an Aussie Millions sides event, two Spring Championship of Online Poker titles and earlier this summer he won his first World Series of Poker bracelet. On Sunday he added a World Championship of Poker title to that growing list of impressive accomplishments. Lakemeier took down Event #23 High ($1,050 Six Max No Limit Hold'em) for a little over $97,000. The final three players actually agreed to a deal that saw runner-up Juan Martin 'xPastorcitox' Pastor earn $81,235.45 and third place finisher 'T3G3S' walk away with $84,059.61. The biggest WCOOP winner on Sunday was Brazil's Andre 'Andreflk13' Figueiredo. He earned $108,533.51 for beating 3,293 other entries in Event #28 High ($215 No Limit Hold'em) while 'Gukiz' banked $76,743.59. With one 2017 WCOOP final table to his credit, a sixth place finish in Event #16,'OverTheTop43' made sure not to leave the final table Event #22 High ($530 NLHE Win the Button) empty-handed. The Austrian beat out 990 other players to win his first WCOOP title and almost $82,000. Brazilian 'LgwZ' earned $59,746.44 for beating everybody but 'OverTheTop43'. The final WCOOP winner on Sunday was Russia 'WTFMOFGOAO'. He took down the smallest field of the day, Event #24 High ($1,050 No Limit Deuce to Seven) for $26,512. Brazil's Murilo 'Muka82' Figueiredo finished second for $18,432.

[caption width="640"] Argentina now has two WSOP bracelet winners after Andres Korn won the https://cdn.pocketfives.com/p5wp/2017/11/595619-andres-korn-wsop-2017.jpg,000 No Limit Hold'em event on Sunday (WSOP photo)[/caption] Sunday was an exciting day at the 2017 World Series of Poker. Not only were two shiny gold bracelets awarded, but arguably the most prestigious tournament of the summer kicked off its Day 1. Here’s a run through all of Sunday's WSOP action. Andres Korn Wins Second-ever Bracelet for Argentina When Ivan ‘Negriin’ Luca won a bracelet back in 2015, he became the first Argentinian to ever achieve such a feat. Two years later, he now has a fellow countryman wearing WSOP gold. Andres Korn took down Event #56: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $618,285 Sunday, having outlasted a 623-strong field after four days of play. He ultimately defeated a tough final table which included Mike Sowers and Andy Spears, before defeating Pete Chen heads up. "The bracelet weighs so much more," Korn said, when asked what meant more, the money or the bracelet. "I wasn't even looking at the pay jumps; I was just focused on the bracelet. For us who play poker, this is the glory. And you don't get that many chances to play for it. "The money's beautiful, but my main thing was the bracelet.” Final table payouts: Andres Korn - $618,285 Pete Chen - $382,122 Thomas Boivin - $264,306 Marton Czuczor - $185,794 Mike Sowers - $132,767 Simon Lam - $96,472 Andy Spears - $71,300 Mark Zullo - $53,615 Sergio Cabrera - $41,031 $1,500 No Limit Pauses Heads Up Another tournament due to finish Sunday was Event #58: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em. However, it eventually got so late that the tournament was paused with just two players left. Artur Rudziankov (8.93 million) and Mario Prats (4.29 million) will return Monday to play for the bracelet and a first-place prize worth $395,918. They both survived the ten-hour final table, which saw the likes of Martin Kabrhel and John Esposito go bust. When they return, the blinds will be 60K/120K, with Rudziankov holding a 2:1 chip lead. If Rudziankov can pull off a win, he’ll become only the second ever bracelet winner from the Czech Republic. Some big names busted before the final table was set, including Taylor Paur (16th - $15,250) and Roman Korenev(23rd - $12,297). Final Table Payouts So Far - $395,918 - $244,611 Timothy Miles - $176,455 Arman Zolnoorian - $128,645 Christian Rudolph - $94,799 Lee Watkinson - $70,618 John Esposito - $53,184 Martin Kabrhel - $40,500 Scott Lychwick - $31,187 Jens Lakemeier Dominates $2,500 Big Bet Mix Finale to Win $112,232 [caption width="640"] Jens Lakemeier made quick work of his final table opponents to win the first WSOP bracelet of his career (WSOP photo)[/caption] In just 20 hands of final table play, Jens Lakemeiereliminated all four of his final opponents to take down the $2,500 Big Bet Mix. He came in to the finale as chip leader, and despite some early hiccups, he never faltered from the top thereafter. After Kenneth Fitzgeraldbusted in sixth, five-handed play started slow. However, Lakemeier then went on a tear courtesy of a single Five Card Draw hand. Ashton Griffin opened, Jerry Wong jammed, and Lakemeier called. Griffin called all in too and showed two pair, while Lakemeier needed a queen to make a full house. He hit it, eliminating both in one hand. In one of the very next hands, Andrew Kelsall fell in third place, leaving Lakemeier heads up with Jason Stockfish. It took just ten hands for Lakemeier to secure the victory. For his win, Germany’s Lakemeier banked $112,232. Final Table Payouts Jens Lakemeier - $112,232 Jason Stockfish - $69,359 Andrew Kelsall - $47,239 Jerry Wong - $32,804 Ashton Griffin - $23,235 Kenneth Fitzgerald - $16,793 Crazy Eights Day 1 flights wrap up Sunday saw the $888 Crazy Eights event, with a guaranteed $888,888 first place prize, finish up all its Day 1 flights. It was a busy day indeed. A total of 2,072 sat down for 1C, while 1D attracted a massive 2,878 runners. 168 remained after 1D, with big and notable stacks belonging to Paul Berger(646,000,Alex Papazian (516,000), Danny Wong (385,000),Ian O'Hara(267,000), Shannon Shorr(262,000),Kevin MacPhee(250,000), William Kassouf(200,000), and Cate Hall (131,000). Meanwhile in 1C, Danny Alvarez bagged the chip lead with 497,000, while Joao Vieira (410,000), Bill Germanis(407,000), Catherine Dever (391,000),JeWook Oh(390,000), and Vanessa Kade (424,000) all made it through. All in all, this event got 8,120 entrants, which smashed last year’s 6,761 turnout. The full payout structure will be announced tomorrow during Day 2. $50K Poker Players Championship Kicks Off Mixed-game fans rejoice! It’s finally here. Event #62, the 2017 $50,000 Poker Players Championship, got off and running on Sunday with 93 players taking their seats. There were only six players to bust in the whole day, meaning 87 will return for Day 2 tomorrow, with registration still open. It was a bad day for Dan Cates. The Jungleman five-bet jammed pre-flop for over 200 big blinds with ace-king suited, and was called by Mark Gregorich with pocket aces, which held up. Cates was the first to bust, followed by Iraj Parvizi, David Benyamine, Dan Shak, Ben ‘Sauce123’ Sulsky, and Jared Bleznick. On the flipside, it was a great day for the 2013 champion in this event, Matthew Ashton. He bagged up the chip lead with 705,500, collecting most of his chips by busting Sulsky. Aaron Katz (682,700) and Robert Mizrachi (495,500) round off the top three, while Daniel Alaei, James Obst and Johnny Chan all finished with top 10 stacks. This tournament really is a who’s who, so just about everyone you can think of is still in. It’s going to be another great day of poker tomorrow. Top 10 chip counts: Matthew Ashton - 705,500 Aaron Katz - 682,700 Robert Mizrachi - 485,500 Harry Madoff - 478,600 Mark Gregorich - 465,200 Brett Richey - 455,300 Daniel Alaei - 446,100 Marco Johnson - 422,900 James Obst - 417,600 Johnny Chan - 408,500
Bradley Ruben has had a successful World Series of Poker Online so far this summer, with six cashes, including the final table of Event #27 ($1,050 PLO Bounty). He finished fourth in that event for nearly $40,000, but on Sunday he was able to get to the top, taking home his first WSOP bracelet, and over $220,000 for winning Event #62 ($1,500 PLO). The final table ended up starting short-handed with eight players, as there was a double elimination with ten players left. At virtually the same time, Simon Mason busted in 10th place, while Adam Hendrix quickly followed him out the door in ninth place. This left Canadian Patrick Serda holding the lead eight-handed. After shipping a double up over to another opponent, a short-stacked Tal Peretz got his final 360,000 and change in the middle, and Sami Kelopuro three-bet the pot to get everyone else out of the hand. Peretz held [poker card="Jh"][poker card="Jc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4s"], and he was trailing the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ac"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="10s"] of Kelopuro. The flop of [poker card="As"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="5s"] gave Kelopuro top set, but also gave Peretz a flush draw. However, two hearts closed out the board, and Peretz busted in eight place, earning $17,858. Despite starting the final table as the chip leader, Serda was the next person out, busting in a huge pot against Dorel Eldabach. Eldabach raised to 280,000 from late position, and Serda defended his big blind. The flop of [poker card="7s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"] saw Serda check call bet of 215,151, and the [poker card="Ts"] hit the turn. Serda checked again, and Eldabach fired 310,000. Serda check-raised to 910,000, and Eldabach called. The [poker card="Td"] river saw Serda move all-in for 1,868,679, and Eldabach put him at risk, showing [poker card="As"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="7c"][poker card="3s"] for the best flush possible. Serda showed [poker card="Qs"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"] for a complete bluff, and he'd had to settle for $33,910 in seventh. Next out the door was Sami Kelopuro. He made it 560,000 to go from the hijack, and Blaz Zerjav three-bet to 1,920,000, a pot sized bet. It folded back to Kelopuro, and he moved all in for another 1,344,671 on top of his raise. Zerjav called with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="Jc"][poker card="8d"], and he was well in front of the [poker card="9s"][poker card="9c"][poker card="3h"][poker card="3c"]. Zerjav flopped top set, and Kelopuro was drawing dead by the turn. He earned $46,727.14 for his finish. Despite picking up that elimination, it was Zerjav who bowed out next in fifth. He raised it up under the gun, and Ruben three-bet to 1,500,000 on the button. Zerjav made the call, and the flop came [poker card="7c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="6s"]. Zerjav check, then called all-in for 2,500,000 and change after Ruben shoved. Zerjav showed [poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"], which was drawing very live against the [poker card="As"][poker card="Ac"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="Td"] of Ruben. However, the [poker card="Qc"] turn and [poker card="Jc"] river provided no further help. The Slovenian took home $64,389 for his efforts. Ruben made it back-to-back eliminations after taking out Naman Madan in fourth. Ruben started by raising to 420,000 in the cutoff, and Madan three-bet to 1,560,000. Ruben made the call, and the flop came down [poker card="Qh"][poker card="5h"][poker card="5s"]. Ruben checked, and Madan bet the pot, 3,420,000. Ruben moved all in for the one million Madan had left, and the cards were shown. Madan: [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="8d"] Ruben: [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6s"] Ruben had flopped top set, leaving Madan drawing rather thin. No further help came, and Madan settled for $88,727 in fourth. Jens Lakemeier just missed out on heads up play, bowing out in third. In his final hand, he made it 504,000 to go from the button. Ruben three-bet the pot to 1,752,000 and that was called by Lakemeier. The flop came down [poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6s"], and Ruben bet the pot, setting Lakemeier all-in. He called with [poker card="As"][poker card="Js"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5d"], and had a ton of outs against the [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="Qh"][poker card="Jc"] of Ruben. The [poker card="Kc"] gave Ruben top set, and the [poker card="Ac"] river changed nothing. Lakemeier bowed out in 3rd place, taking home $122,264.05. Heads-up didn’t last very long, as Ruben was simply unstoppable towards the end. On the final hand, Dorel Eldabach three bet after a raise from Ruben. Ruben called, and after the flop of [poker card="Jh"][poker card="8h"][poker card="4c"] flop, he called the all-in from Eldabach. Ruben: [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="6h"] Eldabach: [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2c"] Eldabach’s kings were in the lead, and the kings held on the [poker card="7d"] turn. However, the [poker card="Qh"] river gave Ruben the nut flush, ending the tournament. Eldabach will take home $168,477.54 for his runner up spot, while Ruben earned his first WSOP bracelet and $220,159. Final Table Payouts Bradley Ruben – $220,160 Dorel Eldabach– $168,478 Jens Lakemeier – $122,264 Naman Madan – $88,727 Blaz Zerjav – $64,389 Sami Kelopuro – $46,727 Patrick Serda – $33,910 Tal Peretz – $24,608 Adam Hendrix – $17,858
