  1. Just 29 players woke up Wednesday morning with a chance to win the $2.72 million first place prize in the partypoker MILLIONS Online. Following 27 eliminations, the final two players quickly agreed to a deal that saw each of them walk away with just over $2.3 million. Manuel 'Sheparentao' Ruivo took home $2,329,943.88 and the title while runner-up Pim 'ForMatherRussia' de Goede earned $2,309,994.87. Those two scores are now the #1 and #2 biggest single scores in online poker tournament history. The previous record was held by Tyson ‘POTTERPOKER’ Marks, who pocketed $2,278,097.50 for winning the 2010 PokerStars WCOOP Main Event. Chop discussions were initiated after just one hand of heads up play. Slovenia's Blaz 'Scarmak3r' Zerjav rounded out the podium finishers, collecting $1,364,687.50 for third. Zerjav won his way into the tournament after winning a $5 satellite and working his way up. The Netherlands' 'Maddonaa' also won seven figures, picking up $1,091,750 for fourth. 'wheatforsheep', who began the final day with an impressive chip lead, was unable to turn that lead into a title but he did collect $491,287.50 for finishing seventh. Chance 'ChanceSeeYou' Kornuth finished 22nd and Christopher 'Ad_Finem' Kruk just missed the final table with a 10th place result. Final Table Payouts Sheparentao - $2,329,943.88 ForMatherRussia - $2,309,994.87 Scarmak3r - $1,364,687.50 Maddonaa - $1,091,750 j2805667 - $818,812.50 COL_Moutarde - $655,050 wheatforsheep - $491,287.50 orginALUS - $327,525
  2. The World Poker Tour has a new WPT Champions Club member. On Monday night, Canadien Demo Kiriopoulos captured first place in the Season XVII WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event. Kiriopoulos topped a record-breaking field of 602 entries to win the C$517,424 ($382,894) top prize. WPT Fallsview Final Table Results 1st: Demo Kiriopoulos - C$517,424* 2nd: Wing Yeung - C$362,853 3rd: Andrew Pantling - C$233,339 4th: Jake Schwartz - C$167,388 5th: James Morgan - C$128,471 6th: Noeung Troeung - C$105,170 *First place includes a $15,000 seat into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions. Nineteen players remained to enter the third and final day of play, with Kiriopoulos sitting 14th on the leaderboard. Chanracy Khun was the only remaining WPT Champions Club member in the field and Garrett Dansereau was in the lead. Khun busted in 11th place, just after the last woman standing, Christine Do, went out in 12th. Kiriopoulos then knocked out Yuri Siniak in 10th place, as Andrew Pantling continued to lead the way. Pantling padded his lead with the knockout of Jason Sagle in ninth place, and then Brad Lampman was eliminated in eighth place by Jake Schwartz. Dansereau, the start-of-day chip leader, bowed out in seventh when his [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Ts"] couldn't win against Schwartz's [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kc"], according to the WPT coverage. With six players left, it was still Pantling out in front in a big way. He had 9.475 million and Schwartz was the next largest stack at 4.07 million. At the time, Kiriopoulos was fourth in chips with 2.855 million. Kiriopoulos began chipping up right away and soon found himself second in chips behind only Pantling, who had also chipped up to more than 10 million in chips. On the 28th hand of six-handed play, Noeung Troeung was eliminated in sixth place by James Morgan. A handful of hands later, Kiriopoulos clashed big against Pantling to take over the chip lead. During five-handed play, Kiriopoulos and Pantling exchanged the chip lead a few times. Pantling then took a big chunk out of Morgan before Morgan busted in fifth place to Wing Yeung. Schwartz then went out in fourth place when he couldn't win with the [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Jh"] against the [poker card="As"][poker card="8d"] of Kiriopoulos. Three-handed play started with Pantling and Kiriopoulos almost tied for the chip lead, and Yeung in third place. Yeung found a double through Kiriopoulos, then Kiriopoulos found a double through Pantling. After the dinner break, Kiriopoulos came back and went to work. He quickly moved into the lead before he won a big pot off Yeung who had just doubled through Pantling. That allowed Kiriopoulos to really separate himself from the pack. Pantling went out to Yeung in third place when his pocket kings couldn't hold up against the pocket twos of Yeung. Kiriopoulos had the lead entering heads-up play by about 2-1. The two battled for quite some time, but in the end, Kiriopoulos was too much for Yeung to handle. Kiriopoulos won the big pots and the majority of the small pots to finish Yeung off and win his first WPT title. On the final hand, Kiriopoulos called Yeung's shove with pocket tens. Yeung had the [poker card="Jd"][poker card="6d"] and failed to improve. He earned C$362,853 ($268,511) for his runner-up finish. Hublot WPT Player of the Year Update With the win, Kiriopoulos soared past $1 million in career live tournament earnings. He also picked up a $15,000 seat into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions and 1,200 points in the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race. Ping Liu added to his Hublot WPT Player of the Year lead with a 62nd-place finish at WPT Fallsview. Liu now has 1,900 points and is 50 points ahead of Tony Ruberto in second place. Liu has six cashes and two WPT final tables on the season. Schwartz, who took fourth at WPT Fallsview, added 800 points to move to 1,650 points overall. He's currently in third place. The winner of the Hublot WPT Player of the Year for Season XVII will earn a $15,000 WPT Passport that can be used as buy-in credit across global WPT events. The winner also receives a custom Hublot watch. Second place in the race will earn a $7,500 WPT Passport, and third place gets a $2,500 WPT Passport.
  3. Another televised World Poker Tour final table is set. This time, it’s the Season XVIII WPT L.A. Poker Classic. The event drew 490 entries to Commerce Casino and generated a prize pool of $4.727 million. Just six players remain and they’ll be on hiatus until action resumes at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas on Thursday, April 2. Leading the way in the chase for the $1.015 million top prize is Balakrishna Patur. Patur brings 6.32 million in chips to the final table. He’ll be joined by two WPT Champions Club members in Matas Cimbolas and James Carroll, Ka Kwan Lau, Scott Hempel, and WPTDeepStacks champion Upeshka De Silva. De Silva will be the short stack with 930,000 when action resumes in April. WPT LAPC Final Table Seat 1: Scott Hempel - 1,670,000 Seat 2: James Carroll - 4,125,000 Seat 3: Matas Cimbolas - 4,310,000 Seat 4: Ka Kwan Lau - 2,250,000 Seat 5: Upeshka De Silva- 930,000 Seat 6: Balakrishna Patur - 6,320,000 [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] Each of the six is guaranteed a minimum payday of $185,330. Included in the event’s first-place prize is a $15,000 seat to the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions presented by Baccarat Crystal. How the Final Table Was Reached Day 1 saw Demo Kiriopoulos emerge as the event’s chip leader when the first day of play was in the books. Then it was Isaac Baron atop the field at the end of Day 2. Entering Day 3, 104 players remained and the top 62 were set to reach the money. With 63 players left, WPT Champions Club member Jordan Cristos was all in against fellow WPT champion Daniel Strelitz. According to the WPT Live Updates team, Cristos was all in with the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8c"] on the [poker card="8d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="6s"] flop. Strelitz had made the call with the [poker card="Td"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="Jh"] on the turn and 8h on the river allowed Cristos to double up, but that would be the last time he doubled up this tournament. Shortly thereafter, still on the money bubble with 63 players remaining, Cristos was all in on the [poker card="Js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5d"] flop with the [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jd"]. His opponent, Claude Codru, had the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Ts"]. Once again, it was Cristos needing to fade a draw. This time, the [poker card="Qs"] came right out on the turn and gave Codru an unbeatable flush. The river completed the board with the [poker card="2d"] and Cristos was sent home as the "bubble boy." Once in the money, the eliminations began to stack up, including Barry Greenstein (61st - $16,905), Jesse Sylvia (55th - $18,845), and Lee Markholt (41st - $21,290). To close out Day 3, 39 players remained with Patur on top of the pack. Day 4 saw the field whittled down to 11 players. Baron remained in contention and finished Day 4 as the chip leader, with Hempel sitting second and Patur sitting third. Donald Maloney (37th - $24,375), John Hennigan (34th - $24,375), JC Tran (29th - $28,275), and Dylan Linde (14th - $58,215) were among the casualties on Day 4. Baron couldn’t get anything going on Day 5, though, and he fell in 11th place for $71,950. Charles Kassin and Lau both scored early double ups through Baron, and then De Silva picked off a bluff from Baron. On his final hand, Baron held pocket eights against Hempel’s pocket tens but could not come from behind. Hempel also knocked out WPT Champions Club member Kevin Eyster in 10th place. Strelitz went bust in eighth, and his elimination came in a three-way clash of WPT champions involving Carroll and Cimbolas. Strelitz was all in preflop with side action between Carroll and Cimbolas. On the [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Ts"][poker card="8c"] flop, Cimbolas bet 300,000 and Carroll shoved for more than 5 million. Cimbolas called all in for 1.56 million total with the [poker card="As"][poker card="Ah"]. Carroll had the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="2c"] and then Strelitz had the [poker card="Td"][poker card="9d"]. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] and the river was the [poker card="3s"], keeping Cimbolas’ aces in front and eliminating Strelitz. After Strelitz busted, Shi Chen was sent packing in seventh place to set the official TV final table.

  4. Eric Afriat has joined the prestigious list of players to have won three World Poker Tour titles. On Sunday, Afriat took first place in the Season XVIII WPT Fallsview Main Event. He topped the field of 594 entries to win C$508,021 ($379,120) and his third WPT title. At WPT Fallsview, Afriat found himself heads up with Marc-Olivier Carpentier-Perrault. Entering heads-up play, Afriat had the lead with 13.15 million in chips to Carpentier-Perrault’s 10.625 million, according to the WPT Live Updates team. Afriat added a small bit to his lead to start and then the final hand of the tournament came on the fifth hand of heads-up play. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] On the final hand, Afriat had the [poker card="7s"][poker card="7d"] against Carpentier-Perrault’s [poker card="Ad"][poker card="5c"]. Carpentier-Perrault had raised to 500,000 with the blinds at 125,000-250,000 with a 250,000 big blind ante. Afriat made it 2 million to go and Carpentier-Perrault shoved for 9.52 million total. Afriat called and his pocket sevens held on the [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Th"][poker card="2d"][poker card="8d"][poker card="2c"] board. Final Table Results 1st: Eric Afriat - C$508,021 (approx. $379,120)* 2nd: Marc-Olivier Carpentier-Perrault - C$356,180 (approx. $265,805) 3rd: Adam Hui - C$229,013 (approx. $170,905) 4th: Trung Hien Nguyen - C$163,965 (approx. $122,361) 5th: Demo Kiriopoulos - C$125,850 (approx. $93,917) 6th: Zuhair Al-Pachachi - C$103,217 (approx. $77,027) Entering the official WPT final table of six players, Adam Hui was the leader and Afriat was the smallest stack remaining. Zuhair Al-Pachachi busted in sixth place, falling to Trung Hien Nguyen. That left five players remaining and Afriat’s stack was going the wrong way. With fewer than 10 big blinds, Afriat got all in with the [poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"] against the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ad"] of Carpentier-Perrault. The situation looked grim for Afriat, but he spiked a deuce to score the double up. Not too long after he cracked Carpentier-Perrault’s aces, Afriat was back at it, cracking another player’s pocket rockets. This time it was Nguyen who had the aces to Afriat’s kings. After the money went in preflop, Afriat hit a king on the turn and secured the double up. Falling in fifth place was Demo Kiriopoulos, the defending champion of WPT Fallsiew, and he was busted by Afriat. No, Afriat didn’t crack aces this time - he actually had the best hand going in and held up. Afriat’s [poker card="Jh"][poker card="Jc"] was up against Kiriopoulos’ [poker card="Ts"][poker card="9s"] and held up on the [poker card="Jd"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2s"][poker card="7h"] run out. Kiriopoulos won the Season XVII WPT Fallsview Main Event for C$517,424 (approx. $392,059) and scored C$125,850 (approx. $93,917) this time in what was nearly a back-to-back title run. Hui then took out Nguyen in fourth place before it was Afriat who started to pull away with three players left. After Carpentier-Perrault took out Hui in third place, the heads-up duel was set. Afriat made quick work of Carpentier-Perrault and secured his third WPT title. Carpentier-Perrault finished in second place and took home C$356,180 (approx. $265,805). With the victory, Afriat joins Darren Elias, Gus Hansen, Carlos Mortensen, Chino Rheem, and Anthony Zinno as players to have won three WPT titles. Elias has actually won four and is the leader in the WPT Champions Club clubhouse. Afriat’s first WPT title came in Season XII when he won the largest WPT Main Tour event of all time, in terms of field size. That season, Afriat won the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown, topping a field of 1,795 entries to win $1.081 million. In Season XVI, Afriat took first place in another large-field World Poker Tour event. This time it was the 1,244-entry WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open and Afriat won it for $651,928.
