  1. Most people who play the World Series of Poker Main Event don't even think of bringing their work with them when they come to chase poker immortality. Ben Mintz isn't most people though. Mintz, who hosts a drive-time sports radio show in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana, is onto Day 3 of the Main Event but has also made time to get on air while in Las Vegas, even having former #1-ranked PocketFiver Ari Engel on as a guest. Mintz last played the Main Event in 2013, long before the radio show was something he'd even considered. Mintz, also a PocketFiver, used to make his living grinding onlin
  2. This time last year John Hesp was a complete unknown to the poker world. He traveled across the Atlantic to play the World Series of Poker Main Event after playing tiny buy-in events back home and became a mainstream media sensation. Daan Hoogendijk is hoping to follow in his footsteps. "It's a lot of money. I'm the kind of that plays, sometimes I play an $800 somewhere. If you look at my Hendon Mob my total cashes is a few thousand here, a few thousand there, but nothing like this," said Hoogendijk, who now lives in Beveren, Belgium with his wife and daughter. The most recent cashes on
  3. The 2018 World Series of Poker continues its trek towards the Main Event, with two new bracelet winners created after another busy session on Thursday. One player outlasted a final table which included some legends of the game, while another picked up his first piece of jewellery, and a bunch of bounties to go with it. Meanwhile, there are just four players remaining in the $3K Big Blind Ante NLHE, and a former PocketFives no.1 player leads the final 13 in the $10K Razz. All of that and more in our recap of June 28’s action. Joey Couden Overcomes Tough Final Table to Win First Bracelet
  4. We might not have seen any new bracelet winners in Monday’s 2018 World Series of Poker action, but we did see two exciting final tables set for tomorrow. Both the $10K PLO Championship and the $1,500 Razz will return tomorrow with all players around one table, and they won’t stop until two shiny new bracelets are handed out. Meanwhile, the MONSTER STACK ploughed through another day and hundreds of players, and the $10K Limit Hold’em Championship kicked off. Here’s everything you need to know about June 25 at the WSOP. Final Table Set in $10K PLO Championship, Shack-Harris Leads Final
  5. Six months ago, Niall Farrell finally slew the dragon and won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, beating out a tough field in the €25,000 High Roller at WSOP Europe. Now, the Scottish poker pro is in Las Vegas for the 2018 World Series of Poker hoping to add another bracelet to his collection. Over the course of the 2018 WSOP, 50 Days & 50 Nights chronicles Farrell’s summer; the highs and the lows and all the stuff that happens in between. A quick glance at Niall Farrel's WSOP results so far this summer and something immediately jumps out. There's not a lot of them. He managed to
  6. There were two bracelet winners on Wednesday at the 2018 World Series of Poker, and one of those wins has provided one of the coolest stories of the summer so far. Meanwhile, two tournaments will return tomorrow very close to the end, with one heads-up and another three-handed. The final table of the SHOOTOUT has also been set, while the $25K PLO High Roller played through its Day 1. Here’s everything you need to know about June 21’s WSOP action. Farhintaj Bonyadi Takes Down Super Seniors Event for $311,451 Against all the odds, Farhintaj Bonyadi defeated Robert Beach heads-up to ca
  7. Wednesday’s action at the 2018 World Series of Poker saw a new millionaire made, as well as a PocketFiver chipleading the final three in an event on his quest for a first bracelet. That, and a whole lot more, in our recap of June 13th’s action. Arne Kern Takes Down Millionaire Maker, wins $1,173,223 Germany’s Arne Kern secured only his third WSOP cash on Wednesday. And boy, is it a big one. Kern took down Event #21: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER for a massive score of $1,173,223, instantly making the 26-year-old from Klivery a millionaire. Kern defeated seasoned UK pro Sam
  8. Monday was a bitter-sweet day at the 2018 World Series of Poker. A true legend of the game announced his retirement, before making a very exciting deep run in one of the coveted Championship events, proving he’s still up there among the best. Meanwhile, two new bracelets were awarded, and the Millionaire Maker and THE MARATHON saw massive days completed. Here’s all you need to know from Monday (June 11). Doyle Brunson Announces His Retirement With Deep $10K 2-7 Run Some breaking news was making waves around the halls of the Rio on Monday morning: the Godfather of poker, ten-time bracele
  9. Day 3 at the 2018 World Series of Poker was the busiest yet, with four events playing in unison within the walls of the Rio in Las Vegas. While two tournaments played through their Day 2s, we saw two new events kick off, including one of the largest buy-ins of the summer. Here’s all you need to know about Friday’s action (June 1). Joe Cada, Joe McKeehen Make SHOOTOUT Final Table After the first round of Event #3: the $3,000 NLHE SHOOTOUT on Thursday, 50 of the 363 entrants returned for round two today. When play came to an end on all ten tables, we had ten winners who’ll return on Satur
  10. On more than one occasion, it has been said that winning the World Series of Poker Main Event is every poker player's dream. For most though, plunking down $10,000 just for a ticket to the big show is a tough pill to swallow. That’s where satellite tournaments come into play. Year after year, players of every skill level take their shot in satellite tournaments, hoping that they can earn a seat into the WSOP Main for a fraction of the cost. After all, there’s no better feeling than being able to play for the big money while still maintaining your bankroll. No doubt in 2018 there will be pl
  11. Somehow, Wednesday night at the 2018 World Series of Poker will probably go down as one of the most surreal in the 49-year history of the event. Not only did the Main Event reach a final table in a dramatic fashion, but the most decorated player in WSOP history, Phil Hellmuth, added to his legend with yet another bracelet. This is the Main Event There were 26 players at the start of Day 7 of the WSOP Main Event but over a 12-hour span, 17 players were eliminated leaving just the nine players to make up the final table. Shortstacks Jeffrey Trudeau, Barry Hutter and Bart Lybaert all fell ea
  12. As Day 6 of the 2018 World Series of Poker plays down to 27 players, Clayton Fletcher continues to generate social media buzz from some Hollywood heavyweights who are clearly leading his cheering section. Fletcher, who works as a stand-up comedian, is in the midst of his second deep run in the Main Event. In 2016, he outlasted all but 95 other players and even spent time as the overall chip leader. The second time around is quite a different ride though. "It's just been really different because that year I actually had a chip lead for many, many hours and this tournament has been differe
  13. After all the madness that was a record-setting Day 1C of the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event, a rather modest 2,453 players made their way back to the Rio for Day 2AB. Just a little more than half - 1,244 to be exact - of those players managed to find a bag with chips in it at the end of the night after another five levels of play. Leading the way is California's Shawn Daniels who built his stack from 84,200 to a 532,000. Daniels was one of just five players to end the day with more than a half-million chips. Sean Ruane, younger brother of former November Niner and last year's 10t
  14. After a ‘no bracelet’ day on Monday, we saw two new bracelet winners on Tuesday at the 2018 World Series of Poker. One of them picked up his first piece of WSOP jewellery, while the other claimed his third, plus over a million bucks to go with it. Meanwhile, the MONSTER STACK played down to 20, the $10K Limit Championship got down to 14, and the $3K NLHE kicked off for Day 1. Here’s all the news from June 26. Razz Specialist Jay Kwon Wins First Bracelet and $125,431 Coming into the final table fifth in chips, and with some stiff competition from the likes of start-of-day chip leader K
  15. Every year, the World Series of Poker brings out all kinds of storylines as players, professional and amateur alike, come from varying backgrounds to win one of poker's most coveted prizes, a WSOP bracelet. Matt Mendez, winner of the $565 Online Six Max Pot Limit Omaha event, is one of those stories. Actually, he's more than one. He's a stay-at-home parent with a young daughter. He's an online grinder who recently rediscovered his passion for poker. He's dreamed of winning a WSOP bracelet of his own - more than one actually - since he was 12 years old. As if all of that didn't make for a
  16. There are three bracelet winners to tell you about from Thursday’s 2018 World Series of Poker action: Two first-time winners, and one player who has captured his second piece of poker jewellery nine years after claiming his first. Meanwhile, the $25K PLO High Roller is down to just 35 players. Scroll down to find out who is still in with a shot of winning the enormous $1,402,683 prize. All of that and more in today’s recap of June 21. ErIc Baldwin Wins Bracelet #2, $1,500 NLHE for $319,580 With just two players returning on Thursday to finish Event #37: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em, it l
  17. One of the most prestigious bracelets of the 2018 World Series of Poker was awarded today, and it went to a man who has now won the event an unprecedented three times. Tuesday also saw one other bracelet handed out. It was almost a three-bracelet day, but two players ended the Super Seniors event heads-up, so we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find who will take down their first WSOP gold. Here’s all the news from June 19. Michael Mizrachi Wins $50K PPC for a Third Time Maybe it was on the cards all the way back on Day 2. Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mizrachi bagged the chip lead that nigh
  18. There were another three new bracelet winners created on Saturday at the 2018 World Series of Poker. Meanwhile, the $50K Poker Players Championship completed its Day 2, with a former two-time winner and arguably the world’s most famous poker player sitting with the top two stacks. Here’s all you need to know from June 16. Steve Albini Wins First Bracelet, Takes Down $1,500 Stud It’s not too often we have a new bracelet winner who transcends the poker world. Steve Albini is a world-renowned alternative rock musician (Big Black, Shellac), as well as a noted music producer, perhaps best
  19. It wasn’t supposed to end like this. Nobody even expected him to play. Doyle Brunson’s appearance in the $10,000 No Limit Deuce to Seven event at the 2018 World Series of Poker came as a surprise to anybody who has followed poker over the last few years. Once the face of the franchise, Brunson first stopped playing the WSOP back in 2013, citing the long hours of play as the main reason. He much preferred the high stakes cash game action at the Bellagio where could come and go as he pleased. He teased coming back in 2017, but nobody, absolutely nobody, thought they’d see him at all this year
  20. Monday’s 2018 World Series of Poker action saw two bracelets and a nice chunk of change awarded. Several other events also put Day 1s and Day 2s in the books, with some well-known chip leaders leading their fields. Here’s all the info you need to know from Monday June 4th. Nick Petrangelo Joins Two-Bracelet Club, Wins $100K High Roller for $2.91 Million Fresh from his sixth-place finish in the Super High Roller Bowl (for $900K), Nick ‘caecilius’ Petrangelo hopped straight into Event #5: the $100,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller. Four days later, Petrangelo has won his second WSOP bracel
  21. You’ll now have to go way back to Jamie Gold’s 2006 victory to find a larger Main Event field than the one created at the 2018 World Series of Poker. Over the past three days a staggering 7,874 players have taken their shot in the $10,000 pinnacle of the poker calendar, making this the second largest Main Event in history. Here’s all the news from Day 1C on July 4. Biggest Main Event Flight in History Monday’s Day 1A got 925 runners. Tuesday’s Day 1B attracted 2,378 more. And now that play is over on Wednesday’s Day 1C, it’s been revealed that a massive 4,571 players came to play. That
  22. The second starting flight of the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event played out on Tuesday, producing some big numbers. We also saw two new bracelet winners crowned, and a final table end the day three-handed. Here’s all the news from July 3. Big Turnout on Day 1B There were 2,378 entries on Day 1B of the $10,000 Main Event, and after five two-hour levels that number was whittled down to 1,794.

  23. Yet another millionaire was made on Wednesday at the 2018 World Series of Poker. Nine players have now banked seven-figure scores this summer, with Tommy Nguyen the latest recipient of a bracelet and potentially life-changing score. Meanwhile, Scott Seiver was busy doing Scott Seiver-like things, winning his second bracelet in the $10K Limit Hold’em Championship. Wednesday also saw the $10K Razz and the ever-popular Tag Team event kick off. Here’s everything you need to know from Wednesday June 27.

Read all about those winners, plus all the other news, in our recap from June 24. Israel’s Timur Margolin Wins First Bracelet in $2,500 NLHE The first of Sunday’s two new bracelet winners had to overcome a tough final table, one which included a six-time bracelet winner and last year’s Player of the Year, and another bracelet winner seeking their second piece of jewellery. Timur Margolin emerged vi
  25. Another busy day! Three more bracelets were won on Saturday at the 2018 World Series of Poker, one of which went to a former PocketFives no.1 player. Meanwhile, a final table was set, with a controversial figure in the poker world holding the chip lead over the final six. Here’s all the news from June 23. Shaun Deeb Wins Third Bracelet In $25K PLO High Roller ($1.4M) Last year, Shaun Deeb got heads-up versus Ben Yu in the $10K Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Championship.
