  1. The World Series of Poker Online bracelet events captured the attention of the poker world this weekend but they were by no means the only opportunity for U.S.-based players to take down a big-time tournament. For starters, WSOP.com is running the WSOP.com Online Championships right alongside of the 2020 WSOP. The Online Championships is a month-long series with $6 million in total prize money guaranteed and this weekend the series featured three six-figure prize pools. One of the biggest tournaments of the weekend was the WSOP.com OC #21 ($200,000 Sunday Special Edition) which saw 613 players (384 rebuys) post the $320 buy-in and shatter the guarantee to the tune of a $299,100 prize pool. 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event final tablist Aram ‘X69Podheiser’ Zobian took home the win, adding $43,907.88 to his bankroll. ‘bbqnub1’ finished as the runner-up, earning $32,512.17 while Jason ‘Gunner_Q10’ Gunn shot up to third and walked away with $23,928. Uke ’ooopsmybad’ Dauti took down the $100 buy-in WSOP.com OC#20 ($100,000 Player Appreciation) for a $30,411.99 score. Mike ‘SammyTwizz’ Azzaro captured second place for an $18,750.99 score while ‘betfoldwin’ wrapped up in third place for $13,496.40. The third six-figure prize pool of the day was in the WSOP.com OC #22 ($75,000 Sunday 55). The $75,000 guarantee turned into a $120,500 prize pool as 687 players (1,365 rebuys + 358 add-ons) fired in the $55 buy-in event. Stuart ‘studog’ Gold outlasted the field and banked $28,317.50 with the victory. ‘edypzed’ grabbed $15,062.50 for finishing in second and Francis ‘Specialfx’ Romano grabbed the bronze and $9,881 for their efforts. While WSOP.com was cranking up the prize pools, PokerStars was slashing the buy-ins on their Pennsylvania and New Jersey Sunday Majors to lure in large fields. The PokerStars PA Half Price Sunday Special saw 2,172 entries sieze the opportunity to pay just $50 to take a shot at a five-figure payday. ‘Savant76’ scored the win and took home the $14,730 first-place prize. ‘cowboydollars’ has a few extra bucks thanks to his $10,499.09 score as the runner-up. ‘DaveyJoneLocker’ wrapped up in third place and earned $7,484.12. The PokerStars PA Half Price Sunday High Roller saw a huge boost in attendance this week with 509 players firing the $125 tournament. That’s up from 149 players who played last week with the regular High Roller buy-in of $250. ‘JonCaron215’ took home the bulk of the $58,026 prize pool by claiming the $10,267.58 first-place prize. ‘flipper12x’ finished in second place and took home $7,153.83. And ‘johnnyboat46’ stood on the final step of the podium, earning $4,984.60 for third. In New Jersey, there was a three-way chop in the $100 PokerStars NJ Half Price Sunday Special. Even though ‘zhatka’ was the official winner, earning $6,556.65 it was runner-up ‘HustlersTavern’ who locked up the biggest payday of the tournament, logging off with $7,499.44. Finally, ‘Vote Kanye’ was the third party in the deal, securing $6,841.14 for third place. ‘MyCousinVinny5’ grabbed the gold in the $215 buy-in partypoker NJ Sunday $35K Gtd for $10,280. He was followed by ‘chomeking’, who earned $6,769.38 as the runner-up and ‘Whosyourdoddy’ who fell in third place which was good for $4,883.

  2. The day after the conclusion of their Championship Event, the World Poker Tour Online series rolled on and awarded two more trophies while looking forward to the next major event on the series - the WPT DeepStacks $3M Gtd Main Event. The first of the two winners on the day was Phillipp Hofbauer who rose above the 290-entry field in Event #44 ($1,050 8-Max) to claim the $59,700 first-place prize. The two-day event was one of the few on the WPT schedule to offer an overlay as players enjoyed an extra $10,000 added to cover the $300K guarantee. Finishing right behind Hofbauer was Enrico Camosci who took home $43,200 as the runner-up. Reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champion Hossein Ensan grabbed the bronze and added $30,300 to his substantial bankroll. In the smaller Event #44 ($109 Mini 8-Max) it was the UK’s Lee Jack who outlasted the event’s 1,067 runners to take home the title and $18,352.40 for first. Brazil’s Gustavo Mastelotto wrapped up as the runner-up and earned $13,145.44 for his efforts. Mats Bruland fell in third place, winning $8,696.05. As those two events were wrapping up, the star-studded Event #46 ($10,300 PLO High Roller) got underway. The two-day event was packed with some of the biggest names in the game and the final table, which concludes on Friday, reflects that. Linus Loeliger ended the night with the chip lead, followed by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Yuri Dzivielevski. Jason Mercier emerged in third place, followed by another online legend, Viktor Blom, in fourth place. The winner will walk away with over $279,000 for first-place. With the Championship Event in the books, players are now taking aim at the WPT DeepStacks Main Event and its $3,000,000 guarantee. There are daily starting flights running right up until the start of Day 2 which takes place on Tuesday, May 26. On Thursday, 299 players took a shot at building a stack with some notable names cruising into Day 2. At the end of the day it was Aram Zobian that finished with the biggest stack followed closely by Russia’s Sergei Denisov and Sean Roberts. Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot and Ryan Chamus also punched their tickets to Day 2 with more than 500,000 in chips. Also of note, partypoker ambassadors Partick Leonard and Kristen Bicknell were joined by former #1-ranked PocketFiver Christopher Oliver in surviving the day.

  3. After four starting flights and 2,130 entries, the first-ever World Poker Tour Online Championship Event saw just 398 players return for Day 2 on Monday. And at the end of the day, it was Super High Roller savant Sam Greenwood who assumed the overnight chip lead heading into Day 3. Throughout the course of the week, thousands of players packed the lobbies of the WPT Online starting flights helping the WPT crush the event’s $5 million guarantee to the tune of a $6,390,000 prize pool. On Monday, the 398 players that survived those opening flights reunited online to battle for the over $1 million first-place prize. Only 35 of the 398 runners found a virtual bag with tournament specialist Sam Greenwood grabbing the top spot (4,635,621) followed closely by Pascal Hartmann (4,431,202), and Max Silver (4,340,422). Rounding out the top five chip counts are Rayan Chamas and Aram Zobian who also finished the day with over four million in chips. Other notable names to advance include Vincent Bosca Ramon, Amichal Barer, Benny Glaser, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Matthias Eibinger, Fabrizio Gonzalez, Viktor Ustimov, and World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson. Although 398 players returned for Day 2, only 312 of them were going to get paid. Justin Bonomo, Rui Ferreira, Daniel Dvoress, Christoph Vogelsang, and Ludovic Geilich were among the players who picked up a $5,942.70 min-cash, exiting not long after the money bubble burst. Koray Aldemir (273rd, $6,134.40), #1-ranked Conor Beresford (243rd, $6,326.10), Darren Elias (203rd, $6,645) were able to ladder up a little. Chance Kornuth (184th, $7,604.10), Wiktor Malinowski (149th, $8,882.10), Jorryt Van Hoof (123rd, $9,521.10), Dominik Nitsche (109th, $10,160.10), and Igor Kurganov (108th, $10,160.10) were among those who looked to make a run but fell outside of the top 100. Mohsin Charania (97th, $10,799.10), Simon Deadman (88th, $11,438.10), Mikita Badziakouski (68th, $13,035.60), Chris Kruk (57th, $14,185.80), and Kristen Bicknell (43rd, $16,741.80) were among those who nearly advanced to day three but ultimately fell just short. With 35 players left, everyone is guaranteed a payday of at least $18,594.90 while the top seven are promised a six-figure score. There were plenty of six-figure scores to be had in the two-day Event #37 ($25,500 Super High Roller) as 91 players battled for the over half-a-million first-place prize. After a deal was made, Dan Smith emerged victorious taking home $555,503.38 for first while Daniel Dvoress agreed to accept $456,871.63 as the runner-up. It turned out to be a nice day for Lucas Reeves as well, in addition to finishing in 51st place in the Championship Event for $15,463 he also claimed the bronze in the High Roller for a more substantial $295,750 payday. There were more huge scores to be had as those who had busted out of the Main Event were given another $3,200 event to play at the same time. Event #41 ($3,200 Second Chance Turbo) had 110 entries as Phillip Mighall booked the win and banked $80,850 for first. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Andras Nemeth finished as the runner-up, adding $57,750 to his bankroll. And while his brother was leading the Main Event, Luc Greenwood was bringing honor to the family name by claiming the bronze in the Second Chance, earning $41,250 for his efforts. Event #20 - $3,200 WPT Online Championship 2,130 entries $6,390,000 prize pool Top 10 Chip Counts Sam Greenwood - 4,635,621 Pascal Hartmann - 4,431,202 Max Silver - 4,340,422 Rayan Chamas - 4,246,913 Aram Zobian - 4,246,619 Christian Jeppsson - 3,901,810 Mihail Zavoloka - 3,498,341 Maximilian Lehmanski - 3,155,635 Nikita Kupchin - 3,039,865 Daniel Reijmer - 3,005,600 Event #37: $25,500 Super High Roller 91 entries $2,275,000 prize pool Dan Smith - $555,503.38 Daniel Dvoress - $456,871.63 Lucas Reeves - $295,750 Rob Lipkin - $204,750 John O’ Shea - $159,250 Elias Talvitie - $113,750 Event #41: $3,200 Second Chance Turbo 110 entries $330,000 prize pool Phillip Mighall - $80,850 Andras Nemeth - $57,750 Luc Greenwood - $41,250 David Gradic - $28,875 Igor Yaroshevskyy - $21,450 Stewart Kirby - $16,500
  4. 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 early with Eric Froehlich, who started Day 6 with the 10th biggest stack, getting coolered with pocket queens against Alex Lynskey's pocket kings to join them on the rail. Ivan Luca, former November Niner Sylvain Loosli, Frederik Brink and Ryan Phan all busted to leave the unofficial final table of 10 players waiting for one more elimination before stopping play for the night. The final hand was one for the ages. Nicolas Manion raised to 1,500,000 from UTG. Antoine Labat called from middle before Yueqi Zhu came over the top, moving all in for 24,700,000 from late position. Manion responded by moving all in for 43,100,000. Labat, the biggest stack of the three, took some time before eventually calling. Zhu revealed [kh][ks], Manion tabled [ah][as] and Labata turned over [kc][kd]. The board ran out [jd][7c][4c][3s][jc] to eliminate Zhu in tenth place, leaving Labata with just 8,050,000 and boosting Manion into the chip lead with a nearly full triple up. "Somehow this is real life," said Manion, who finished with 112,775,000. "When I got both calls, I flipped over my hand, I went straight to my rail and looked up at the TV and saw they both had pocket kings to my aces." Michael Dyer, who spent most of the day Wednesday in the chip lead, finished just behind Manion with 112,775,000. Remarkably, the final table includes repeat appearance from a Main Event champion from the November Nine era for the first time in history. Joe Cada, who won the 2009 WSOP Main Event, finished with 23,675,000, good enough for the sixth biggest stack. "It was a lot more of a grind this time. I respect the tournament more," said Cada, who was down to 9,000 on Day 1 before rebuilding his stack. " The final table resumes at 5:30 pm PT with the ESPN broadcast starting at 6:00 pm PT. The current schedule calls for play to continue Thursday until six players remain. Final Table Chip Counts Nicolas Manion - 112,775,000 Michael Dyer - 109,175,000 Tony Miles - 42,750,000 John Cynn - 37,075,000 Alex Lynskey - 25,925,000 Joe Cada - 23,675,000 Aram Zobian - 18,875,000 Artem Metalidi - 15,475,000 Antoine Labat - 8,050,000 Phil Hellmuth Wins Bracelet #15 [caption id="attachment_619988" align="alignleft" width="1024"] Phil Hellmuth continues to silence his critics, winning a 15 WSOP bracelet on Wednesday night.[/caption] It's been an interesting summer for Phil Hellmuth. Seemingly mired in some sort of controversy from the very first week, Hellmuth spent two days earlier this week defending, and eventually apologizing for, his actions late on Day 2 of the Main Event that may have cost another player their tournament life. On Thursday night, with the Main Event playing down to a final table in another room, Hellmuth overcame the 2.5-1 chip lead of Steven Wolansky to win the 15th bracelet of his career. Faced with the possibility of yet another runner-up finish, Hellmuth gave himself a little pep talk. "I said, ... 'When's the next time you're going to have an opportunity like this where you're heads up for a bracelet? You just need to hang in there and stay strong', and I stayed strong and then luckily hit some cards," said Hellmuth. Hellmuth, who holds the WSOP records for wins and cashes, gave Wolansky credit for making the final table a difficult one for him. "He wouldn't give an inch, so I had to start thinking about, okay how do I want to handle this? And I thought alright, I'm going to have to try to steal more pots against him, to give myself a chance because he's just not giving a chip away, he's making it really tough, and I can't blink first either," said Hellmuth. "I just have to like just keep playing my best poker until the end and maybe something great will happen." Hellmuth's last bracelet came in 2015, when he won the $10,000 Razz Championship event.
  5. One day after a power outage wreaked havoc on the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event, the remaining 109 players returned to action and continued with a breakneck pace of eliminations with 83 more players being shown their way to the cashier while just 26 remain in contention for the $8.8 million first-place prize. Aram Zobian finished Day 6 with 41,585,000 and the overall chip lead. That lead could have been much larger had he not lost a massive pot to Ukrainian Artem Metalidi with ace-king versus kings. Metalidi finished with the second largest stack thanks largely to that hand. Metalidi wound up with 30,845,000. France's Antoine Labat spent a good chunk of the day with the chip lead and finished with 28,445,000, good enough for the third biggest stack. Joe Cada remains in contention for a second Main Event title after surviving Day 6 with 8,850,000. Sylvain Loosli is also looking for the second Main Event final table appearance of his career, bagging up 11,635,000 at the end of the night. Included in the 83 players who were eliminated on Tuesday were Shannon Shorr, James Obst, Brian Yoon, Kelly Minkin, Stefan Huber and New Jersey's own Michael Lavenburg. Shaun Deeb, the last remaining former #1-ranked PocketFiver in the field, was also eliminated, finishing in 105th place for a $57,010 score and the 13th of his summer. Deeb has now managed to cash in the Main Event three times during his career. Clayton Fletcher's elimination in 28th place was supposed to draw play to a close on Day 6, but Jorden Fox was eliminated on another table just seconds later, leaving the field with just 26 players to go. The 26 players will return to play Wednesday and work their way down to a final table of nine, starting at Noon PT.
