[caption width="640"] Elliot Smith survived 12 hours of heads-up play to win the PokerStars Championship Macau Main Event (PokerStars photo/Neil Stoddart)[/caption] The final table of the PokerStars Championship Macau Main Event was part sprint, part marathon, but after all of it, Canadian Elliot Smith stood tall to win $370,508. The final table began with six players remaining and it didn’t take too long to get heads-up, with the first four eliminations taking just over two hours. On just the sixth hand of the day, with blinds of 30,000/60,000 (10,000) Pete Chen moved all in for 955,000 from UTG. Action folded to Tianyuan Tang in the small blind who called instantly and tabled [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"] which put him ahead of Chen’s [poker card="td"][poker card="tc"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="6d"][poker card="3h"] flop put Chen ahead with top set and the [poker card="6h"] turn gave him a full house, but the [poker card="jd"] river put Tang back on top with a bigger full house and eliminated Chen in sixth place. The next bustout came nine hands later. Smith raised to 125,000 from the button and Ayman Hata moved all in for 1,800,000 and Smith called instantly. Hata showed [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"] and found himself well behind Smith’s [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="jc"][poker card="3c"] flop put Hata ahead with top two pair but the [poker card="3d"] turn gave Smith a better two pair. The river was the [poker card="8h"] and Hata was out in fifth place The trend of the second-best hand out-flopping the best hand continued 22 hands later. Daniel Laidlaw raised to 135,000, Tang re-raised to 360,000 from the button and Avraham Oziel moved all in for 1,550,000. Laidlaw folded but Tang called and showed [poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"] while Oziel happily turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. That all changed when the flop came [poker card="td"][poker card="7s"][poker card="4h"] to give Tang middle set. The [poker card="9s"] turn and [poker card="qs"] river failed to save Oziel, eliminating him in fourth place. Six hands later, Laidlaw was sent packing. Action folded to Smith in the small blind, he bet 1,000,000 and Laidlaw re-raised all in and Smith called. Laidlaw showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"] while Smith had [poker card="ks"][poker card="5d"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5c"] flop put Smith ahead but left Laidlaw with even more outs. The [poker card="js"] turn and [poker card="2h"] river were no help though and Laidlaw was eliminated, leaving Smith and Tang to play heads up. While the first four eliminations took just 43 hands, heads up play was a different story altogether. Tang and Smith played 173 hands over nearly 12 hours to determine the eventual winner - most of that play coming after the pay had agreed to a chop. The deal saw Smith and Tang each get $331,816 US with the eventual winner getting an additional $38,692 and the title. The lead changed multiple times over the course of play, but the final hand came day to a standard all-in preflop race that had all kinds of drama. Smith completed from the button only to have Tang move all in from the big blind. Smith called and tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"] against Tang’s [poker card="6h"][poker card="6c"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6s"] flop put Tang ahead with a set but the [poker card="2s"] turn and [poker card="3s"] river gave Smith runner-runner flush to win the title. Final Table Payouts Elliot Smith - $370,508 Tianyuan Tang - $331,816 Daniel Laidlaw - $221,896 Avraham Oziel - $164,749 Aymon Hata - $122,275 Pete Chen - $90,741 Yan Li - $67,058 Xuan Tan - $49,682
The Triton Poker High Roller roadshow moved to Sochi, Russia this week for the first formal partnered event with a major tour. partypokerLIVE played host with the first of two Triton Rollers finishing today as part of the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russia festival. This event was played as standard No Limit Hold'em, not the Short Deck variation Triton is synonymous with. Aymon Hata took down the ₽3 million ($50,000) High Roller amidst a field of 47 to win the ₽48 million ($756,000) first-place prize. Six places paid and nine players made the final table leading to a tense bubble midway through Day 2. Bartlomiej Machon busted an hour into the final table to claim the distinction of ninth and Timothy Adams followed him out the door a few hours after then. Ivan Leow led the final table when play started but an unfortunate streak earned him the bubble boy label. Hata doubled with A♦J♥ against the K♦K♠ of Leow when an ace flopped and Leow sent 25 percent of his stack to his opponent. Phillip Gruissem then caught a Leow bluff with pocket aces and the former chip leader was suddenly looking to hang on for a cash. Leow busted when his A♠10♥ failed to catch up to the Q♣Q♥ of Patrik Antonius for his last 14 big blinds to clinch a payout for the six remaining players. With six players still in, Hata won a key flip to improve his title chances. Hata won with A♥K♥ versus Gruissem's Q♣Q♥ when a king flopped. Gruissem dropped to only 10 big blinds and he busted to Antonius a few hands later to notch another cash on the year. Paul Phua left the action in fifth place and Antonius won another key all-in. Phua shoved for 256,000 with the blinds at 8,000/16,000 holding 9♣9♠ and Antonius woke up with K♦K♠. The board ran out in the favor of Antonius and the final table was left to four. Antonius became the fourth-place finisher as he doubled up Vladimir Troyanovskiy and then busted to the Russian within the span of a few hands. Troyanovskiy won with queens against the fives of Antonius to knock the mighty Fin down to under 30 big blinds. The action picked up from there. Troyanovskiy opened the A♦K♥ to 37,000 and Antonious joined him with 7♥6♥ from the small blind. Hata didn't want to be left out and called in the big blind with A♥4♥. A 10♥3♥3♠ flop resulted in Troyanovskiy betting 50,000 and Antonius following his action with an all-in raise of 408,000. Hata moved all-in over the top and Troyanovskiy pitched his hand. Antonious' limited outs did not materialize and fourth would be his final result. Konstantin Uspenskii felt to Hata only 10 minutes into three-handed play. Uspenskii's K♠8♠ went in for 14 blinds against Hata's queens and did not improve. Hata's heads up lead over Troyanovskiy never left his grasp and he closed out the impressive victory in a brief match. Troyanovskiy pushed for nine big blinds with J♠7♣ and was met in the middle by Hata's K♣4♣. The board ran out queen-high and Hata stepped into the Triton Poker winner's circle for the first time. The next Triton High Roller event in Russia is already in session with Day 1 of the ₽6 million ($100,000) Super High Roller underway. Triton Poker High Roller Final Table Results 1.

Steve ‘MrTimCaum’ O’Dwyer earned himself another huge payday on Tuesday when he took down the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK £25,000 Super High Roller for £450,000. O’Dwyer topped a field of 51 entries to score another trophy for his case and move to more than $24 million in career live tournament earnings. O’Dwyer’s 2018 may be flying under the radar, as a lot of other players grab headlines, but he’s been no slouch on the felt this year with more than $4 million in live tournament earnings following this victory. It’s his eighth six-figure cash of the year and fourth of more than $500,000. What’s more is that O’Dwyer’s victory in the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK £25,000 Super High Roller comes almost immediately after he wrapped up excellent performances in the 2018 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) and partypoker POWERFEST. In WCOOP, O’Dwyer won his first WCOOP title when he took down Event-57-H ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em Eight Max) for a $227,101 first-place prize. In the POWERFEST series, O’Dwyer took down Event #123 Super High Roller Championship Event: $25,500 No Limit Hold’em for $896,610. O’Dwyer defeated Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez in heads-up play, with Gonzalez taking home £236,750. Interestingly, the event’s third-place finisher, Orpen ‘orpenkk’ Kisacikoglu, placed second to O’Dwyer when he won the POWERFEST Super High Roller Championship Event. Final Table Payouts 1. Steve O’Dwyer - £450,000 2. Fabrizio Gonzalez - £236,750 3. Orpen Kisacikoglu - £200,000 4. Christoph Vogelsang - £140,000 5. Aymon Hata - £100,000 6. Niall Farrell - £60,000 The top six places were set to finish in the money, and it was a notable face in 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Ryan Riess eliminated on the bubble. Riess was short, with only four big blinds in his stack, and moved all in with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="ts"]. He was called in two spots - Niall 'firaldo87' Farrell with the [poker card="kh"][poker card="9c"] and Aymon Hata with the [poker card="as"][poker card="2s"]. The board ran out [poker card="7h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3c][poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"] to bust Riess. In the money, O’Dwyer was fourth in chips but quickly scored a double up to take the chip lead. O’Dwyer doubled through Farrell, who then busted in sixth place. After that, O’Dwyer knocked out Haha in fifth. O’Dwyer also busted Christoph Vogelsang in fourth place when his [poker card="As][poker card="kh"] came from behind against Vogelsang’s two kings thanks to an ace on the flop. O’Dwyer also came from behind when he spiked an ace with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"] against the pocket jacks for Kisacikoglu to knock Kisacikoglu out in third. O’Dwyer took a massive lead into heads-up play, with more than 45 million to Gonzalez’s 6.25 million. From there, he made quick work of Gonzalez to seal the deal. On the final hand, it was O’Dwyer coming from behind once again. He jammed with the [poker card="jd"][poker card="9h"] against Gonzalez, who had just seven big blinds in his stack. Gonzalez picked up a dream hand with pocket aces, but the [poker card="jc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="9s"][poker card="js"][poker card="qc"] board gave O’Dwyer a full house and the victory.
