  1. Most poker players would consider finishing 11th in the World Series of Poker Main Event to be an amazing accomplishment. Maybe not in the moments following their elimination, but eventually they’d accept what they did as something special. For the last two years, John Cynn has allowed his 2016 11th place finish to be his career-best score. Sunday morning, however, following an epic heads-up battle with Tony Miles, Cynn changed all of that by winning the 2018 WSOP Main Event and walking away with $8.8 million. “Different. Feels very different,” Cynn said when asked to compare his emotions f
  2. In what felt like a flash, the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event suddenly just has 310 players left with Barry Hutter standing on top of the entire field. Sunday's play started with 1,182 players all still hoping to become World Champ, but over 5.5 two-hour levels of play, 872 players were shown the door. Hutter managed to do some damage on Day 4 and ended up bagging nearly six million and the chip lead. Four former #1-ranked PocketFivers managed to advance to Day 5 with Shaun Deeb ending with the highest chip count at 2,175,000. Cliff Josephy (1,985,000), Paul Volpe (1,070,000) and
  3. Late Saturday night in the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event, 1,182 players stood cheering the elimination of Matthew Hopkins in 1,183rd-place. His elimination burst the bubble and sent the remaining players into the money. It also ended Day 3 and In Sun Geoum bagged up 1,696,000, good enough for the chip lead. Right behind him is Frank Flowers with 1,624,000. The only woman to ever make the Main Event final table also finished with a top 10 stack. Barbara Enright, who famously finished fifth in 1995, ended the day with 1,260,000. The day began with 2,786 players still believing they
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. The race for WSOP Player of the Year is at a peak with the Main Event starting today. Last week, Shaun Deeb claimed top honors thanks to his win in the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller. Deeb is in second-place and in his former throne is John Hennigan. Hennigan led the race a few weeks ago when he peaked with a $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. bracelet and runner-up honors in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship. Mixed games are Hennigan's primary strength and he flexed a new muscle to go over 3,000 total POY points. The five-time bracelet winner finished seventh in the $10,000 Razz and final two-ta
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. 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
  10. 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.

Kern defeated seasoned UK pro Sam
  12. The completion of the full second week of the 2018 World Series of Poker was a non-stop poker extravaganza. The summer series has reached full throttle as some of the biggest events on the schedule awarded huge sums of life-changing money. Social media surrounding the series had a few moments of sincerity as poker legend, Doyle Brunson, announced his retirement from tournament play. That said, poker Twitter’s trademark snark was in full form as grinders jumped into event after event, trying to capture gold. So if you are watching from afar, enjoy the view as here’s a little taste of life
  13. In the illustrious history of the PocketFives Rankings, 55 different players have managed to hold down the #1 spot. This edition of the RANK & FILE focuses on how those players did during the 2018 World Series of Poker. Paul Volpe First #1 to Grab Hardware in 2018 Paul 'paulgees81' Volpe started off his 2018 WSOP in strong fashion. He finished third in the $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty, then 15th in the $100,000 High Roller and then everything came together for him in the $10,000 Omaha 8-or-better Championship, where he outlasted 168 other players to win his third career bracelet. He is the
  14. 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
  15. The action continues to heat up at the Rio All Suites Hotel & Casino as the 49th Annual World Series of Poker saw a plethora of events spread throughout the convention area. Two bracelets were awarded, the final table of the Colossus was established and the start of the prestigious $10,000 Heads-Up NL Championship got underway.

  16. 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.

  17. The 2018 World Series of Poker gets cards in the air on Wednesday afternoon. Whether you're making the trip to Las Vegas to chase a bracelet of your own or if you're just a fan excited to tune in from home, our weekly guide will get you hyped and prepared for the week ahead. Let's Get This Party Started The pomp and circumstance that will come with Wednesday's opening two events is all fine and dandy, but the biggest event of the first week has a six-figure buy-in and in all likelihood, a field full of the best players in the world. Event #5, the $100,000 No Limit High Roller, starts Frid
  18. Martin Jacobson's 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event win confirmed him as one of the best live tournament players of his generation. In the time since his $10 million victory, Jacobson's results suggest his game has remained sharp. Jacobson made three final tables last summer including a sixth-place result in the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop. The process for preparing for the summer grind does not wane for Jacobson. He is ready for the chance to win a second bracelet. Jacobson, who recently became an 888poker ambassador, jumps at the bit to map out his summer plans upon the relea
  19. 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
  20. The World Series of Poker is the largest festival in the poker world for both their No Limit and Mixed Game offerings. Buy-ins reaching up to $50,000 for non-Hold'em games can only be found at the Rio for seven weeks every summer. These events often have a great impact on the WSOP Player of the Year race and should have a dense population of familiar faces for the full schedule. Only a single new addition to the schedule game-wise comes from Pot Limit Omaha. Three events are listed, two live and the third online. The PLO Giant follows the template of its No Limit cousin with flights every S
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
