  1. The 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event was a watershed moment for the game. A record number of players - 8,773 to be exact - entered the event that year. Thanks to legal efforts in the United States though, the Main Event has never gotten close to that number again. With the 2019 World Series of Poker just hours away, PocketFives editorial staff have put together their picks for who will make the most out what should be an incredible summer. Here they discuss what the field sizes might look like in some of the more talked-about events on the schedule, including the Main Event. The Big 5
  2. “It was impressive.” Ana Marquez’ reaction the first time she ever walked the halls of the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino and into the Pavillion for her first World Series of Poker is the same as thousands of first-timers every single year. “Walking up the stairs in the first door where it says ‘WSOP’ gave me goosebumps…it still does!” Marquez said. “Once inside, I had never seen such a big place full of poker tables and tournaments running. It was truly amazing.” The World Series of Poker has that effect on people. Marquez, an 888poker ambassador and a 10-year veteran of the live poker
  3. The structure for the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event has been released. From previous announcements, we know that the amount of starting chips went from 50,000 in 2018 to 60,000 in 2019, a big blind ante format will be used and registration has been extended until the start of Day 2. Now, let's dive a little deeper into the details and break down how the WSOP Main Event structure in 2019 compares to 2018's version. 2019 WSOP Main Event Structure Buy-In: $10,000 Starting Chips: 60,000 Level Duration: 120 minutes Late Registration Period: Start of Day 2 Re-Entry: None Click here fo
  4. The 2019 World Series of Poker is only growing closer. Continuing with our pre-WSOP coverage, PocketFives is comparing event structures for 2019 to ones from 2018, in an attempt to see if the WSOP's marketing push of "more value" is true or not. Spoiler: there is more value! As you saw with the 2019 WSOP Millionaire Maker structure, it's not simply more chips that have been added to the 2019 events. Our deep dive does show that indeed more value has been added to the events in the form of more play for those competing. Now, let's take a look at the 2019 WSOP Monster Stack structure.
  5. With six players remaining in the €2,200 Pot Limit Omaha event on Thursday, Tomas Ribeiro was staring at a stack of just 11 big blinds while Marc Palatzky was in the midst of steamrolling everybody in his path. The last two hours of play changed the entire narrative however and Ribeiro stormed back to win his first WSOP bracelet and €128,314. [ptable zone="NJ Online Poker Promos"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] An hour after the final table began, a German vs. German confrontation ended up being the cause of the first bustout of the day.

  6. When the second night of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event final table began, Hossein Ensan and Garry Gates had most of the chips and almost all of the attention of the poker world. Just one of them survived the four hours of play and now just three players remain in contention for the $10,000,000 first place prize, bracelet, and place in poker history. Gates Struggled to Find Any Footing At the start of the night, Gates had 171,700,000 chips - 33.3% of the chips in play. That turned out to be his high point. After dropping to 152,100,000, Gates lost 44,600,000 to Ensan before t
  7. In what has to go down as one of the crazier days of the 2019 World Series of Poker, four players won bracelets including a Poker Hall of Famer, a New Jersey online poker beast, and two players for whom the bracelet was a long time coming. Meanwhile, Daniel Negreanu got as close to winning his seventh career bracelet as he could possibly get without actually winning it. Joseph Cheong Wins First Bracelet in $1K Double Stack Coming into the final table of the $1,000 Double Stack No Limit Hold'em event, Joseph Cheong's WSOP resume included three runner-up finishes and one rather infamous third
  8. The first three flights of the $500 Big 50 were busy and chaotic, but it turns out they were but a dress rehearsal for what happened Sunday at the 2019 World Series of Poker as 9,171 entries made the final flight the busiest day of the summer and officially turned the Big 50 into a record-shattering event. All of that somewhat overshadowed the two bracelets won on Sunday and a deep run by Phil Hellmuth that could have shaken the online poker world to its core. Big 50 Officially Becomes Largest Live Poker Tournament When the WSOP announced the Big 50 as the kickoff to their way of celebrating
  9. Day 1C of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event was definitely one for the record books, but it was also one of the strangest days in the 50-year history of the event. As more and more players piled into the Rio, two were escorted out by police and then Mother Nature had her say as well, as an earthquake shook Las Vegas and disrupted the tournament in an unprecedented way. Starting Flight Record Broken, Overall Record Close Last summer, 4,571 players made Day 1C of the 2018 Main Event the largest starting flight in the history of the WSOP. That record fell on Friday, as 4,879 players
  10. Just a few short minutes after accomplishing what most poker players dream of - winning a World Series of Poker bracelet - Ari Engel stood in front of the assembled poker media for the customary post-tournament scrum and spoke candidly about how his confidence was low. “So many people are doing work and improving their games and you get owned a time or two from people that you thought were worse than you. I'm the kind of person to lose my confidence real easily,” Engel said. “It's kind of a relative thing. It's not like I thought that I sucked, but maybe not the same level of confidence tha
  11. Saturday might have been an off day for the final nine players in the 2019 World Series of Poker, but there was plenty of other action including Daniel Negreanu getting heads-up for a bracelet for the second time this summer and a longtime PocketFiver winning his first piece of WSOP hardware. Jerry Odeen Wins $1,500 Mixed NLHE/PLO He might only be 24 years old, but Sweden's Jerry Odeen has been dreaming about winning a WSOP bracelet for nearly a decade. Odeen, who has been as high as #12 in the PocketFives Rankings, made his dream come true on Saturday by winning the $1,500 Mixed No Limi
  12. Shaun Deeb and Brandon Adams both bagged up chip leads in "post-lim" events in the shadows of the Main Event at the 2019 World Series of Poker on Tuesday. Those two were the headliners in two of the five events outside of the Main Event on the calendar but Dan Zack also put on a show in his pursuit of WSOP Player of the Year honors. Brandon Adams Leads $50,000 Final Fifty Final Table Brandon Adams has already won one WSOP bracelet this summer and on Tuesday he took a gigantic step towards winning a second one. Adams finished Day 2 of the $50,000 Final Fifty event with the chip lead and jus
  13. Sunday at the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event saw 344 last-minute registrations put an exclamation point on the second-largest WSOP Main Event of all-time. The 8,569-player field means that sometime next week, one player will walk away with $10,000,000 and the title of World Champion. Day 2C saw the highly-anticipated arrival of Phil Hellmuth and the emergence of a fresh batch of names atop the end-of-day chip counts. Julien Milliard Inches Toward 1 Million Chips, Leads Day 2C Survivors Florida's Julien Milliard almost cracked the seven-figure stack code on Sunday. Milliard fini
  14. Saturday delivered more action from the 2019 World Series of Poker, including three more gold bracelet winners and a stacked final 11 in the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice. Here’s everything that went down on June 15 inside the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, an update to the WSOP Player of the Year race, and a look at the schedule for Sunday. Korenev Finishes First in Marathon, Wins $477,401 Russian Roman Korenev earned his first WSOP gold bracelet and largest career live tournament score when he took down the $2,620 Marathon on Saturday in Las Vegas. Korenev finished atop the field of 1,083 en
  15. One of the top 50 players in World Series of Poker history added to his bracelet collection on Thursday while one of the top American players under the age of 25 picked up the first bracelet of his career. All of this happened while another field size record was almost broken in the Seniors event. 'The Grinder' Wins Bracelet #5 in $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Michael Mizrachi is the only player to have won the $50,000 Poker Players Championship event three times. On Thursday he became the charter member of another exclusive club: the first player to win five bracelets in the 2010s. Mi
  16. Three players won bracelets on Day 15 of the 2019 World Series of Poker and a couple of four-time champions put themselves in position to win their fifth. John Gorsuch, Rami Boukai, and Andrew Donabedian all ended their day by posing for winner photos. John Gorsuch Rallies to Win Millionaire Maker John Gorsuch was in a position that a lot of poker players have been in. Down to just two big blinds in a tournament and expecting the inevitable bust out. It never came for Gorsuch though. He went from two big blinds to WSOP bracelet winner and millionaire a few hours later after rallying to w
  17. A crazy Saturday at the 2019 World Series of Poker saw four players all win their first career WSOP bracelet, including online poker legend Isaac Baron, as well as another record-setting field in the Millionaire Maker. Murilo Figueredo Gives Brazil First Win of 2019 in $1,500 HORSE To say that Brazilian players are passionate about poker would be an understatement. When one of their players make a WSOP final table, the rail is usually packed with fellow countrymen. Saturday was no exception as Murilo Figueredo beat Jason Stockfish heads-up to win the $1,500 HORSE event for the first Brazilia
  18. From the 8,659 players that started the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event eight days ago, just nine still remain and Germany's Hossein Ensan stands high above the rest as the chip leader. Now all that stands between him and the $10,000,000 first place prize money is eight other players all hoping to do the same. Another German, Robert Heidorn, was eliminated in tenth place in the very early hours of Saturday morning pausing the clock on the second-largest WSOP Main Event in history until Sunday evening. Ensan ended play with 177,000,000 and is well ahead of the rest of the field with
  19. As the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event was playing down to a final table inside the Amazon Room, another eight events were in action on Friday including three that resulted in a player winning the first gold bracelet of their career and another player earning his second. James Anderson, Maximilian Klostermeier, Ivan Deyra, and Shankar Pillai all contributed to tying the record for most bracelets awarded in a single day. James Anderson Ships Little One for One Drop Just five players returned to a chip stack on Day 5 of the $1,111 Little One for One Drop and James Anderson was rig
  20. Most of the attention of the poker world is on the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event right now, but on Monday a number of the best high stakes tournament players ventured into the Rio for one of the biggest buy-in tournaments on the calendar. The Final Fifty, the $50,000 buy-in high roller event that WSOP officials added to the schedule just a few weeks ago, drew 109 entries on Day 1 and was one of three non-Main Event tournaments on the schedule. Final Fifty Draws 109 Players on Day 1 Seth Davies bagged up 2,250,000 on Day 1 of the Final Fifty to lead the final 45 players into Day 2. As
  21. If the 2019 World Series of Poker has any sort of theme, it might be centered around the great players how have eliminated the zero next to their personal bracelet count. While Day 1B of the Main Event was taking up most of the available tables on Thursday, two more talented and respected players picked up their first taste of WSOP victory. Juha Helppi Wins $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship Juha Helppi is an online poker OG. The 42-year-old Finnish pro has somehow managed to receive fewer accolades or hype during his career than fellow countrymen Patrik Antonius or Ilari Sahamies. That
  22. Nick Schulman spends a lot of time in the commentary booth during the World Series of Poker but on Monday he wasn't able to do the commentary for one of the $10,000 Championship events.

  24. Thursday at the 2019 World Series of Poker had a rare occurrence on Thursday: nobody won a bracelet.
