  1. The poker world has spent the better part of the last five days celebrating Daniel Negreanu's historic third World Series of Poker Player of the Year victory. It appears that those celebrations were a bit too hasty. A data entry error means that Negreanu did not win the POY after all and Robert Campbell is, in fact, the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year. WSOP officials released a statement Friday afternoon. "We have confirmed an error was made in our results for WSOP Event #68, affecting places 32-46. As a result, Daniel Negreanu was given 213.1 points erroneously in this event. We deeply regret this error and its impact," the statement read. "Recalculating our Player of the Year results has an impact to the standings. Robert Campbell finishes in 1st place in the now final results, with Negreanu dropping to third place. Again, we apologize profusely for the error in our calculations and the impact it has had." The data entry error rewarded Negreanu, and 15 other players, with points from the event from the Las Vegas schedule that they did not actually cash in. Russian poker journalist Alex Elenskiy noticed the error and pointed it out to the WSOP via Twitter on Friday. Based on Elenskiy's research, it appears that Negreanu was credited with a 36th-place finish in Event #68 ($1,000 Online Championship Event) and was credited with 213.1 POY points. [caption id="attachment_627505" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Negreanu's WSOP.com profile showed him cashing in Event #68 - even though he did not finish in the money.[/caption] As Elenskiy points out, the results for places #32-#46 on WSOP.com for Event #68 are identical to the results for places #32-#46 from Event #87 ($3,000 HORSE). [caption id="attachment_627507" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] The results for Event #68 and #87 showing the copied data.[/caption] Removing the 213.1 points from Negreanu's total leaves him with 3,861.78 and places him in third place behind Campbell and Shaun Deeb. New WSOP POY Standings PLACE PLAYER POINTS 1 Robert Campbell 3,961.31 2 Shaun Deeb 3,917.32 3 Daniel Negreanu 3,861.78 4 Anthony Zinno 3,322.00 5 Phillip Hui 3,186.17 This would have been Negreanu's third time winning the WSOP POY award. He first won it in 2004 and then again in 2013. The 2019 WSOP POY race was hotly contested with Negreanu, Campbell and Deeb all making their way to WSOP Europe in Rozvadov to chase the points necessary. In dramatic fashion, Deeb made the final day of the final event, the €550 Colossus event, thinking he needed a fifth-place finish or better to overtake Negreanu. He actually needed just ninth place or better to pass Campbell. Deeb wound up finishing 11th. This story was updated to include the statement from the World Series of Poker.
  2. Daniel Negreanu has won the 2019 World Series of Poker Player of the Year award. Negreanu racked up 24 cashes across WSOP and WSOP Europe, earning 4,074.88 points to win the award for a record third time. 2019 WSOP Player of the Year Final Standings Daniel Negreanu - 4,074.88 Robert Campbell - 3,961.31 Shaun Deeb - 3,917.32 Anthony Zinno - 3,322.00 Phil Hui - 3,186.17 Dan Zack - 3,126.13 Dario Sammartino - 3,091.03 Kahle Burns - 2,983.37 Dash Dudley - 2,860.79 David ‘ODB’ Baker - 2,808.51 [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] The competition took until the very end of WSOP Europe, with Negreanu battling with Robert Campbell and Shaun Deeb for the honor. Negreanu had the lead, Campbell was second, and Deeb third in the race entering the final event, the WSOP Europe €550 Colossus, but bust outs from Negreanu and Campbell left an opening for Deeb to win. To secure his second WSOP Player of the Year title in as many years, Deeb needed to finish fifth or better in the event. Keeping all of those following along on the edge of their seats, Deeb reached Day 3 with 11 players left and the sweat was on. Deeb came into Day 3 of the €550 Colossus with a stack of 32 big blinds, but he quickly lost a chunk of chips when Alessandro Pezzoli doubled through him. Pezzoli got the best of him for a second time, and then Deeb found all of his chips in the middle against Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier on the [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="9s"][poker card="Td"] board. Deeb had the [poker card="Jh"][poker card="9d"] to Grospellier’s [poker card="Jd"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="Ah"] completed the board and Deeb was out in 11th place, falling short of the gold bracelet and back-to-back WSOP Player of the Year glory. That meant Campbell officially finished the 2019 WSOP season with 3,961.31 points in the race, which was 113.57 short of Negreanu and good for second place. Deeb finished on 3,917.32 and officially in third place. The victory earned Negreanu his third WSOP Player of the Year award. He won the award in 2004 with one gold bracelet, five final tables, and six in-the-money finishes. In 2013, he was WSOP Player of the Year once again, on the foundation of two gold bracelets, four final tables, and 10 cashes. Although he did not win a bracelet in 2019, Negreanu reached five final tables among his 24 cashes, including two runner-up finishes.

It was the $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty tournament and Negreanu placed sixth for $52,099. He then strung together a series of smaller cashes before hitting a big score in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud event. In that one, Negreanu finished second to John Hennigan and picked up $151,700. Just more than a week later, Negreanu was back at a WSOP final table, taking fifth place in the $10,000 Razz tournament for $69,223. He later closed out the summer in Las Vegas with a runner-up finish to Keith Tilston in the $100,000 Super High Roller for $1,725,838. At WSOP Europe, Negreanu battled some illness to rack up seven more WSOP cashes. His best was a sixth-place finish in the €25,500 Mixed Games Championship for €54,287. He cashed two other €25,500 events in Rozvadov as well, all helping him earn more than 4,000 WSOP POY points. All told, Negreanu won more than $2.2 million in prize money from his 24 cashes, which breaks down to an average of nearly $92,000 per cash. He is the first WSOP Player of the Year to win the award without winning a WSOP gold bracelet that year.

  3. As we move into 2020, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of 2019. November involved two big pieces of news involving Daniel Negreanu, and then, of course, we got the launch of legal online poker in Pennsylvania. Data Error Finds Negreanu Not WSOP POY After it was originally announced that Daniel Negreanu was the 2019 World Series of Poker Player of the Year, a data-entry error was discovered by Russian poker journalist Alex Elenskiy that resulted in Negreanu being credited for more points than he should have. WSOP officials were made aware of the issue, verified the error, and then corrected the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year standings, with Australian Robert Campbell being awarded the title. "We have confirmed an error was made in our results for WSOP Event #68, affecting places 32-46," a WSOP statement read. "As a result, Daniel Negreanu was given 213.1 points erroneously in this event. We deeply regret this error and its impact. Recalculating our Player of the Year results has an impact to the standings. Robert Campbell finishes in 1st place in the now final results, with Negreanu dropping to third place. Again, we apologize profusely for the error in our calculations and the impact it has had." Also involved was Shaun Deeb, who ultimately finished second in the race. Deeb was vocal and very upset with what had happened, and the entire debacle caused plenty of a stir within the poker community. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Negreanu Signs with GGPoker After he parted ways with PokerStars back in May, Daniel Negreanu signed a new sponsorship deal with GGPoker. The new deal came six months following the part between Negreanu and PokerStars and saw Negreanu become an ambassador for GGPoker.com. Negreanu made the announcement via a social media video. PokerStars PA Goes Live November brought exciting times in the world of regulated US online poker, as PokerStars PA went live in the first week of the month. Following a couple of days for a soft launch period, PokerStars PA went fully live on November 6, 2019. The wait may have been extended, but Pennsylvania online poker players were out in full force when PokerStars PA went live. Cash games traffic was very good upon the site opening its virtual doors, and the first Sunday tournament schedule featured plenty of variety and guaranteed prize pools. PocketFives followed the launch of PokerStars PA through its live blog and captured some of the best moments from the start. Mateos Wins partypoker MILLIONS World Bahamas Adrian Mateos just keeps on crushing, and November saw him take down the partypoker MILLIONS World Bahamas Main Event. Mateos topped the 948-entry field to win $1.162 million. At the final table, a three-handed deal was made between Mateos, Aaron Van Blarcum, and Chris Hunichen, and it was Mateos coming out as the champion. Caribbean Poker Party Final Table Payouts 1st: Adrian Mateos - $1,162,805* 2nd: Aaron Van Blarcum - $970,000* 3rd: Chris Hunichen - $1,097,195* 4th: Scott Wellenbach - $650,000 5th: William Blais - $500,000 6th: Oleg Mandzjuk - $350,000 7th: Peter Jetten - $250,000 8th: Gregory Baird - $180,000 With the victory, Mateos has now won the WSOP Europe Main Event, European Poker Tour Grand Final, and partypoker MILLIONS World Bahamas Main Event in just more than six years. 'Josef_shvejk' Wins Monthly PLB in November Russian online grinder Arsenii 'josef_shvejk' Karmatckii won the Monthly PLB title for November. He earned 1,958 points in the month to narrowly beat out 'DeathbyQuads' and 'C Darwin2.' Included in his November success was a victory in the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder for $14,298.
  4. Connor Drinan joined an elite club on Thursday and in the process helped form an even more elite one. Drinan became the ninth player with five career PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker titles by winning Event #56 High (1,050 HORSE) and in the process joined Shaun Deeb as the only players to win four SCOOP titles in a single year. Drinan beat Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah heads-up to earn the fourth title and added $30,232.50 to his bankroll. Leah walked away with $21,545 for his efforts while third-place finisher 'wiNNin83' had to settle for $16,680. Deeb became the first player to win four SCOOP titles in 2012. Drinan's previous 2020 came in Event #34 High ($530 Pot Limit Omaha 8-or-better), Event #40-H ($5,200 PLO 6-Max), and Event #45-M ($215 NLO8 Six Max PKO). Mirza 'zazano' Muhovic won Event #57 High ($5,200 NLHE High Roller) to lock up a $201,606 score. Joel 'Odonkor1' Nordkvist fell one spot short of the title and had $155,222.20 to console himself with. Jonathan 'apestyles' Van Fleet came in third for $119,510.00. The final table also included 'bencb789' and Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis. The Dutch pro's Twitch stream of the final table broke his personal record for viewers with more than 34,000 people tuned in before he was eliminated in seventh place. 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. McAllister had to settle for $42,840.00. Ukrainian 'gerasag' outlasted 637 other entries in Event #59 High ($1,050 NLHE PKO) to win $48,061.01 from the prize pool and another $50,031.22 worth of bounties. Andres 'wisopekeno!' Gonzalez came in second place and locked up a $48,060.54 windfall and $8,914.07 in bounties. Alex 'dynoalot' Difelice took the final spot on the podium, earning $30,190.06 and $3,218.75 in bounties for a third-place result. After finishing fourth in Event #56 High earlier in the day, Kyle 'km_freestyle' Menne put a bow on a victory in Event #61 High ($1,050 Omaha 8-or-better) to win $28,546.77. Talal 'raidalot' Shakerchi picked up another strong finish, coming in second place for $22,099.00 while 'Brandon-Tino' walked away with $17,107.61 for finishing third. Other players who won SCOOP titles on Thursday include 'TSubbb' (Event #56-L), 'thomber26' (Event #56-M), 'JUCA_PIRAMA1' (Event #57-L), 'lucianodayan' (Event #57-M), 'JJborio' (Event #58-L), 'd0nkBluff' (Event #58-M), 'Eldon69350' (Event #59-L), 'jonespkr' (Event #59-M), 'fcttom' (Event #61-L), and 'Vitek_vv' (Event #61-M).

  5. 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.

  6. Kevin 'TheRealKG' Gerhart came out on top in the Event #20 ($500 PLO 6-Max) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online scoring a $97,511.65 payday and his second career bracelet. Besting 1,136 other entries, Gerhart started the final table as the chipleader and was dominant from the get-go. The first final table casualty was Shanmukha 'Shanmukha' Meruga. Meruga opened on the button to 560,000 and Gerhart completed from the big blind. Gerhart bet 1,200,000 on the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="9d"][poker card="3c"] flop to put Meruga all in. Meruga called for his tournament life. The at-risk Meruga turned over [poker card="Ts"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6s"] for second pair whilst chipleader Gerhart had bottom pair with his hand of [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3d"]. Gerhart improved to two-pair on the turn with the [poker card="4h"] and the [poker card="5h"] on the river ended the tournament for Meruga. Fifteen minutes later Adam 'AdamJ080584' Jones was sent to the virtual rail in fifth place. His 1,514,816 three-bet jam in the small blind was called by pre-flop raiser 'Duckmoney420.' 'Duckmoney420' showed [poker card="As"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="Qc"][poker card="6c"] which was behind Jones' [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Td"][poker card="Th"][poker card="4c"]. Jones was unable to hold as the board ran out [poker card="Qd"][poker card="9d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="6s"] giving Duckmoney420 queens full of sixes. The very next hand, Gerhart claimed another final table scalp eliminating Chris 'Robotbob47' Moorman for fourth. Moorman raised from the button to 600,000 and again Gerhart defended his big blind. The Englishman moved all-in for 933,119 on the [poker card="Js"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="7s"] and Gerhart snapped called with [poker card="Th"][poker card="5s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="9c"] for bottom two-pair. Moorman's [poker card="Ac"][poker card="6c"][poker card="8h"][poker card="4h"] improved to a pair on the [poker card="4d"] turn and despite making two-pair on the river with the [poker card="6d"], it wasn't enough to keep him in the running for WSOP glory. The action didn't let up as it went from three-handed to heads up in 14 minutes. Jenny 'Mobey' Svancara was denied the chance of becoming the first female 2020 World Series of Poker winner after Gerhart sent his third player from the final table to an early exit. In blind versus blind action, Gerhart raised to 600,000 from the small and Svancara called from the big. The flop came [poker card="Kh"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"], Gerhart bet 1,200,000, Svancara jammed her 2,665,016 stack and Gerhart called. Svancara was ahead on the flop with [poker card="8d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="8c"] for two-pair but a [poker card="Jh"] on the turn meant Gerhart's [poker card="5s"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="7h"][poker card="Js"] improved to a bigger two-pair. The [poker card="5h"] on the river eliminated Svancara for a $41,290.15 score. After a back and forth heads up battle between Gerhart and 'Duckmoney420', both players took over the chip lead on several occasions.
