  1. The first event on the World Series of Poker Europe schedule featured eight starting flights and 2,992 players. When it was all over, Israel's Tamir Segal stood tall to claim not only his first career WSOP cash but a brand new bracelet to go with it. Segal went to work right away at the final table. Björn Bouwmans raised to 1,200,000 from the cutoff seat with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"] before Segal shoved all in from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"]. Bouwmans called off the rest of his stack and found a safe [poker card="8d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"] flop. The turn was the [poker card="qc"] though and Bouwmans was eliminated after the [poker card="jc"] river failed to save him. Just about a half hour later, another all-in preflop battle resulted in another elimination. Wojciech Wybreski raised to 1,250,000 from early position with [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"] and Krasimir Yankov called all in with [poker card="ah"][poker card="js"]. The board ran out [poker card="qc"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="ks"][poker card="2c"] to give Wyrebski top pair and bust Yankov in eighth. Flavio Decataldo raised to 2,250,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"] from early position and Segal defended his small blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"][poker card="2h"] flop changed nothing and after Segal checked, Decataldo moved all in for 8,850,000 and Segal called instantly. The turn was the [poker card="3d"] and the river was the [poker card="9h"] to eliminate Decataldo and give Segal over half of the chips in play with six players remaining. Segal put those chips to work almost immediately, resulting in yet another elimination. Segal raised to 1,200,00 from under the gun with [poker card="2c"][poker card="2h"] and Francesco Delfoco called all in with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="7h"][poker card="2s"] flop all but eliminated Delfoco. The [poker card="js"] turn left him with just four outs and the [poker card="qd"] river was not one of them. The next player eliminated was not a victim of Segal's. From the button, Hannes Neurauter moved all in for 2,300,000, Segal called from the small blind and Aksel Ayguen called from the big blind. Segal then checked the [poker card="th"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"] flop before Ayguen moved all in. Segal folded and Ayguen tabled [poker card="9d"][poker card="9h"] while Nearauter showed [poker card="qh"][poker card="5h"]. The [poker card="9h"] turn provided extra out for Nearauter, but he failed to connect on his flush draw as the [poker card="6d"] turn hit the river. Ayguen kept the pressure on and found another victim. Ayguen raised to 1,300,000 from the under-the-gun position with [poker card="as"][poker card="8c"] and Dariusz Glinski, down to less than five big blinds, called all in from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="2h"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"] flop left Glinski with little hope. The [poker card="kd"] turn gave Glinski chop outs, but the [poker card="7s"] river sealed his fate and eliminated him in fourth. Despite eliminating Nearauter and Glinski, Ayguen's run ended in third place. After he moved all in from the button for 6,850,000 with [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"] only to have Segal call from the big blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="7c"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"][poker card="8c"] flop kept Ayguen in control but the [poker card="ad"] turn and [poker card="jc"] runout gave Segal Broadway to eliminate Ayguen and send the tournament to heads-up play. Starting heads-up play with 80% of the chips in play, Segal needed just 18 minutes to eliminate Wyrebski to pick up his first WSOP bracelet. On the final hand, Wyrebski raised to 3,000,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"] and Segal moved all in over the top with [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"]. Wyrebski called instantly and then could only watch in horror on the [poker card="kc"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="ts"] to give Segal the final pot.

  2. Filipe Oliveira has a quiet, unassuming presence at the poker table. No temper tantrums, no trash talk, no outward emotion after a bad beat. You might think it has something to do with playing poker in a tropical location such as the Bahamas. Apparently, it's the exact opposite. "The Bahamas likes me," Oliveira joked on Day 3 of the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event. No kidding. In November, Oliveira topped the 1,815 player field to win the partypoker Caribbean Poker Party Main Event at the Baha Mar resort in Nassau for $1.5 million. He showed up to the Atlantis Resort last week and made a deep run in the PokerStars Players NL Championship event, finishing 29th for $105,000. To date, 91.8% of his lifetime live earnings have been won on the island. That number will actually increase. He's one of 60 players still left in the hunt for the PCA Main Event title and the $1,567,100 first place prize. All kidding aside, Oliveira has a theory as to why he's had success in the Bahamas. "I think the time zone helps," Oliveira said. "I wake up at 9 am, I go do some sports, I go to the pool, I watch some hands and I'm ready to play poker before I start." Getting a chance to start his day a full five hours earlier than he does at home, Oliveira is now giving thought to coming back to the Bahamas - or another country in the same time zone, to play online. "I didn't notice (the time zone) was really good for me, but I really enjoyed the time zone," Oliveira said. "I think I might come here to play some series in this time zone, because I normally play in Europe. It's completely different." Navigating his way through 3,630 players (and counting) over those three events, Oliveira believes the PCA Main Event, which had 865 entries, is actually softer than the partypoker CPP Main Event, which included 1,815 entries, including those who fired multiple bullets. "(The CPP) was tougher because of the re-entries, it was more Day 1s and two re-entries so you were able to enter like 8 times or 10. So it's way tougher," said Oliveira. "The (PSPC) was really good. This $10K is worse than I expected in terms of field. It's not really soft for a main event, but it's still softer than a $10K high roller in Barcelona." He's no stranger to online success either. In 2016, he won PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Event #15- Medium ($82 NL Hold'em Ante Up) for $22,818.65. Last September he finished fourth in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Event #28- High ($5,200 Turbo High Roller) for $65,244.
