  1. [caption width="640"] Daniel Weinman grabbed his second WPT title of 2017 at the Season XV Tournament of Champions (WPT Photo/Joe Giron)[/caption] Two months ago Daniel Weinman added his name to the World Poker Tour Champions Cup with a win at the Borgata Winter Poker Open in Atlantic City. Sunday night in Hollywood, Florida the 29-year-old capped off Season XV of the WPT by winning the Tournament of Champions. "I feel incredible, this was such a tough tournament and to come out on top it's super special," said Weinman, who had to pass up a trip to The Masters final round after making the final table. ""It's crazy, usually you play these tournaments with a thousand people and there may be 850 people that really don't have a chance at winning the tournament that you go deep. They're just not comfortable with all the spots they're going to encounter. Having 66 people that have already won this and have had some success in the poker world, coming out on top is incredible." After running kings into aces, Dylan Wilkerson wasn’t left with much of a stack to work with. Daniel Santoro raised to 40,000 from UTG and Wilkerson moved all in from the cut off for 179,000. Santoro called and showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"] while Wilkerson had [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6h"] flop put Santoro ahead and neither the [poker card="3d"] turn or [poker card="6d"] river were any help to Wilkerson and he was out in sixth. Just six hands later Santoro picked up another elimination. With blinds of 8,000/16,000, Seidel all in for 138,000 from UTG and Santoro called, this time showing [poker card="ks"][poker card="jd"] and again found himself up against an ace as Erik Seidel showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="5h"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"] flop put Santoro ahead with second pair and left Seidel hoping for one of the three remaining kings or running fives. The [poker card="2h"] turn was no help and neither was the [poker card="7h"] turn and the Hall of Famer Seidel was eliminated in fifth. The Daniel Santoro show kept on going. David Ormsby moved all in from the button for his last 286,000 and Santoro re-raised from the small blind, forcing big blind Michael Mizrachi to fold. Ormbsy tabled [poker card="as"][poker card="4c"] but this time Santoro was ahead with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="8c"][poker card="td"] to eliminate Ormbsy in fourth place and leave Santoro as the chip leader with three players remaining. Unfortunately for Santoro, just over two and a half hours later, the show came to an abrupt halt. Mizrachi folded his button, Weinman moved all in from the small blind and Santoro called all in from the big blind. Weinman showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] while Santoro had [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="8c"][poker card="2s"] flop put Santoro ahead and he dodged the [poker card="7c"] turn, but the [poker card="ac"] gave Weinman a better pair and eliminated Santoro. When heads-up play began, Weinman had Mizrachi outchipped 4.5-1 and it took him just 18 hands to end things. Mizrachi moved all in for 890,000 and Weinman called and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="8h"] while Mizrachi showed [poker card="5c"][poker card="5h"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"][poker card="3c"] flop kept Mizrachi ahead, but the [poker card="8s"] turn gave Weinman third pair. The [poker card="7c"] river card was no good for Mizrachi and he was eliminated in second place, improving his TOC finish from last year by one spot and leaving Weinman as the Season XV TOC winner. Along with the $381,500 first place prize money, Weiman also won a 2018 Audi S5 Coupe, a pair of rose gold wireless Monster Headphones, a custom poker table, a seat in Tiger’s Poker Night and a one-week stay with Wyndham Extra holidays. Final Table Payouts Daniel Weinman - $381,500 Michael Mizrachi - $218,000 Daniel Santoro - $133,525 David Ormsby - $95,375 Erik Seidel - $73,575 Dylan Wilkerson - $57,225
  2. The World Poker Tour rolls on. Just days after Eric Afriat’s epic victory in the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open the Championship tour turns its attention north of the border to Niagra Falls, Ontario in Canada and the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic. The second Canadian stop of WPT’s Season XVI, the Fallsview Poker Classic brings with it a $5,000 CAD (~ $4,025 USD) Main Event. Unlike the recent WPT stops of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open or the Borgata Winter Poker Open, the Fallsview Poker Classic has a more compact schedule with a single starting day, February 10. Should players bust out on that starting day, it offers a single same-day re-entry to get back into the action. While the event doesn’t carry a guarantee, event organizers advertise the Main Event prize pool to be an estimated $2,055,000 CAD based on projected number of players. The first nine levels of the four-day tournament come with slightly expedited 40-minute levels and increase to the more-standard Main Event 60-minute levels thereafter. Once the final two participants are ready to determine a winner, the levels dip back down to 30-minutes. Despite the rate of play moving a little faster, players can expect to get more hands in per hour as the Main Event is once again utilizing a shot clock. The shot clock gives players 30 seconds with which to make any given decision and time extensions for those extra tricky spots. The Fallsview Poker Classic has been a staple of the World Poker Tour since Season XII when Canadian Matthew Lapossie bested 383 runners to take the inaugural Fallsview Poker Classic trophy and $342,266. After a successful start in 2014, the stop has become more popular every year since with ever-growing prize pools. In Season XIII Anthony Zinno took down the tournament helping propel him to earn Player Of The Year honors that year. Season XIV’s brought it’s own distinction of having an “all hometown” final table as six Canadian players dueled for the top prize of $383,407, eventually won by David Ormsby. Finally, last year, in Season XV, Darren Elias used the Fallsview Poker Classic to make history when he won his third World Poker Tour title, becoming only the fifth player in history to do so. Of course, if chasing history in the Main Event isn’t enough action for you, the festival comes with a pair of big-time prelims. On February 5 the $1,100 CAD event gets underway. This tournament has two starting days and wraps up on February 8. Organizers expect the prize pool to be over $1.3 million CAD. Just as the $1,100 tournament is ending the $2,500 CAD tournament kicks off. The four-day tournament is expected to have a prize pool of just under $1.5 million CAD. Finally, should you bust out of the Main Event and are looking for a "trip-saver", there’s a Shootout starting on February 11 for $1,500 CAD and an expected prize pool of roughly $132,000 CAD. Headed into the final stretch of Main Tour contests, two-time Main Event winner Art Papazyan still holds the lead in the WPT Player of the Year race. But after Eric Afrait’s victory at Borgata, combined with his prior final table in Montreal, there’s finally someone who can possibly overtake the one-time seemingly insurmountable lead held by Papazyan. With only five events left on the WPT Season XVI schedule before the season-ending Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas, everyone will be keeping an eye on if one of these two men post another big result or if someone else makes a move for the POY crown. The WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event fires up on February 10 with live updates available by the World Poker Tour.
