  1. For the second time in two days, 'loosebad' found himself heads-up for a New Jersey Championship of Online Poker title on Saturday and just like Friday night, he finished one spot shy. 'LINSANITYY' came out on top of the 124-player field to win Event #39 ($300 Six Max No Limit Hold'em) for $9,027.20 while 'loosebad' ended up earning $6,076. Daryl 'jordanofpkr' Black took home $4,513.60 for finishing in third place. The other title won on Saturday went to 'jumbomom5' after he outlasted 239 other players in Event #40: $75 Zoom No Limit Hold'em. He earned $3,150.81 while 'quadman7750' scored $2,348.35. NJCOOP's Sunday Action includes five events including the $500 buy-in Main Event that includes a $150,000 guarantee.

  2. One of the most prestigious high rollers of the year came to a conclusion on Saturday as Sam Greenwood defeated the 61 player field in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller for $1,775,460. Late on Friday night, the tournament saw the money bubble burst when Gregory Jensen bowed out in ninth place. The players could have opted to end the day of play right there returning for the live streamed final table with a full table. However, they continued to play to the end of the level. During that time they lost three of the eight remaining players including U.S. Poker Open champion Stephen Chidwick in eighth ($236,720), Steffen Sontheimer in seventh ($301,820) and PokerStars ambassador Igor Kurganov in sixth place ($378,760). When they returned on Saturday, the table was five-handed with Canadian Chris Hunichen with the chip lead. LISTEN: The FIVES Poker Podcast LIVE from the Bahamas with guest Chris Hunichen The first elimination of the day took place during a clash between Talal Shakerchi and Greenwood. Greenwood raised holding [poker card="qh"][poker card="qd"]. When the action made it to Shakerchi, he shoved just over 20 bigs with [poker card="js"][poker card="9c"]. Greenwood made the quick call. The [poker card="3c"][poker card="9h"][poker card="th"] flop paired Shakerchi and the [poker card="qs"], while improving Greenwood’s hand, provided Shakerchi even more outs. The [poker card="7c"] river was not one of them and Shakerchi, who made his second final table of the PCA in as many events, settled for fifth place and another $485,300. This result brings Shakerchi's total 2019 PCA earnings to $994,300. Hunichen had lost his chip lead after taking providing Greenwood a double up earlier in the day. He quickly found himself with a 10 big blind stack. Hunichen subsequently lost another hand to Greenwood and was running on fumes. His tournament came to an end when he made an all-in call holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="6d"] against Henrik Hecklen’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="3s"][poker card="9c"][poker card="ks"][poker card="4d"][poker card="5c"] board never really provided much of a sweat and ‘Big Huni’ bowed out in fourth place for $627,340, a new career-high cash. Hunichen has been on a run as of late as this result comes on the heels of his third-place place finish in the WPT Five Diamond $100K, where he won his previous largest cash of $592,000. Greenwood then separated himself from both Jesus Cortes and Hecklen and at one point had a greater than 2:1 chip advantage over each of them. Not long after Hunichen's departure, Greenwood and Cortes faced off in a massive cooler that claimed Cortes’ tournament life. Greenwood opened on the button with [poker card="jc"][poker card="td"] and Cortes flatted on the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qc"]. The [poker card="9h"][poker card="qs"][poker card="ks"] action flop provided Greenwood a flopped straight and a set for Cortes. Cortes checked, Greenwood bet, Cortes flat called. The turn was the [poker card="6d"] and after Cortes checked again, Greenwood placed in a larger bet. Cortes, again, just called. The river brought the [poker card="2s"]. Cortes checked for the third time. Greenwood, covering Cortes, shipped all-in. Cortes could not get away from the hand and after seeing the results, headed for the cashier in third place. He collected $828,560 for his efforts. The score almost exactly doubles the total of his previously recorded live cashes of $828,201. With a commanding chip lead headed into heads-up, it didn’t take long for Greenwood to close out the tournament. Greenwood open limped from the small blind with [poker card="7s"][poker card="7d"] and Hecklen moved all in with [poker card="ad"][poker card="6d"]. Greenwood instantly made the call and the pair saw the flop of [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="3s"] leaving Hecklen with very few outs. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] providing no help. The [poker card="2d"] river sealed the deal for Greenwood, giving him the victory. This was another amazing showing for Denmark’s Hecklen, who finished in second place for a career-high cash $1,284,260. It comes on the heels of his victory in the EPT Prague €10,300 High Roller where he dominated the table from start to finish picking up $568,680. In total, Hecklen now surpasses $3M in total career live earnings. Greenwood, a PocketFiver, picked up the PCA Super High Roller trophy and takes home $1,775,460 for his performance. This is his second largest cash in his impressive career, one that now includes six seven-figure scores. Greenwood now exceeds $14.5 million for his career and climbs to 37th place on the All-Time Money List. PCA $100K Final Table Payouts 1. Sam Greenwood - $1,775,460 2. Henrik Hecklen - $1,284,260 3.

  3. The 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro is in the books, and several huge winners emerged from the high-stakes poker series held at the Maestral Resort & Casino along the Adriatic Sea. Chief among them was Bryn Kenney, who won more than $4.1 million total and jumped to No. 4 on poker's all-time money list, per Hendon Mob. Kenney only cashed twice in the series, but both times he won the tournament. In the first, Kenney topped a field of 79 entries to win the HK$500,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em event for HK$11.23 million ($1.43 million). In the second, he topped a field of 75 entries in the HK$1 million Main Event to win HK$21.3 million ($2.71 million). With those two wins, Kenney improved to just shy of $34.8 million in career live tournaments earnings, of which he's won more than $9.1 million in 2019 alone. Kenney’s previous best year on the live tournament felt was in 2017 when he won more than $8.5 million. Other big winners to come out of the 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro include Rui Cao ($3.61 million), Paul Phua ($3.59 million), Nikita Badziakouski ($2.91 million), and Daniel Dvoress ($2.71 million). Both Phua and Dvoress cashed five times in the series and a total of 12 players earned combined prizes of more than $1 million.

As already mentioned, Kenney jumped to No. 4 overall. Jason Koon, who cashed three times in Montenegro for just under $1 million, slid up one spot ahead of Antonio Esfandiari to be No. 8. Isaac Haxton, who, like Koon, won just under $1 million from this series, is now No. 13 and Badziakouski jumped to No. 15. John Juanda, who won an event in Montenegro for just more than $600,000, actually dropped back to No. 14. Then, looking a bit further down the leaderboard, Phua can now be found at No. 62 on the list after winning $3.59 million in Montenegro. High roller and super high roller events are as plentiful as they have ever been on the poker circuit. Numerous stops have $25,000 or $50,000 buy-in events, and some even push the envelope even further with $100,000 price tags on the schedule. Then, there are several festivals a year that are solely dedicated to ultra high-stakes players, such as the Triton Poker Series festivals. If there was ever a 'steroid era' in poker, similar to what baseball went through for an extended period of time, most commonly referred to as the latter half of the 1990s and into the 2000s. It's not that poker players are using performance-enhancing drugs to boost their earnings, but rather that there’s such an injection of these super high buy-in small-field events that are causing grand shifts in money lists. It doesn’t appear that these events and festivals are going anywhere, so poker will need to go through a bit of a market correction and rankings adjustments to correctly account for the juiced results.
  4. The 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event went from 1,286 players down to 354 on Tuesday Those left are deep in the money and guaranteed $34,845, and it’s Dean Morrone holding the chip lead entering Day 5. Former NFL star Richard Seymour was one of the big stacks to advance. Morrone Leads the Way Morrone is a Canadian player and a qualifier from 888poker. He’s making his first career WSOP cash with his run in this year’s WSOP Main Event and it’s also his largest live tournament score to date as he entered the tournament with just $10,138 in live earnings. Morrone entered Day 4 with 365,000 before he went on to finish with 4.98 million and the lead. Other big stacks in the group behind Morrone on the leaderboard were Lars Bonding (4.04 million), Michael Messick (3.925 million), Warwick Mirzikinian (3.9 million), and Henrik Hecklen (3.862 million) to round out the top five. Morrone’s fellow 888poker qualifier Mihai Manole finished the day with a very healthy 3.781 million. Top 10 Chip Counts Dean Morrone - 4,980,000 Lars Bonding - 4,040,000 Michael Messick - 3,925,000 Warwick Mirzikinian - 3,900,000 Henrik Hecklen - 3,862,000 Mihai Manole - 3,781,000 Robert Heidorn - 3,700,000 Sean Mills - 3,692,000 Christopher Wynkoop - 3,563,000 Andrew Brokos - 3,518,000 Former NFL Star Richard Seymour On the Rush Former NFL star and three-time Super Bowl champion Richard Seymour was among those to advance to Day 5. He spoke with The Fives Poker Podcast at the end of Day 3 about his sixth time playing the WSOP Main Event being a charm and things only got sweeter on Tuesday. Seymour came into the day with 275,000 and quickly got his stack up to 400,000. It wasn’t long before he reached 1 million in chips and then the progression only continued after he was moved to one of the secondary features tables. Seymour bagged up 2.75 million in chips, but he wasn’t the only former NFL player to move on. Eric Stocz, who spent time in the NFL with the Detroit Lions, reached the money in the WSOP Main Event for the second time in his poker career. He’s already outperformed the 402nd-place finish he netted in 2011 that earned him $30,974 and will only be looking for more. Stocz bagged 350,000 for Day 5. Former PocketFives #1 Players Performing Well A handful of former PocketFives #1 players are performing well and have advanced to Day 4 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event. Fabrizio Gonzalez bagged 2.916 million, Chris Hunichen finished with 2.617 million, and Yuri Dzivielevski ended with 1.79 million. Hunichen bagged those chips despite losing one of the biggest pots of the tournament so far. He got involved in a big one with David Guay and Guay flopped a set of tens against Hunichen’s pocket kings. The hand resulted in a full double for Guay and took a dent of about 1.2 million out of Hunichen’s stack. Eight from Pennsylvania Still Alive Pennsylvania online poker has been legalized and the launch date is coming up soon. When sites do go live there will be a handful of players with some extra money to deposit thanks to deep runs in this WSOP Main Event. Eight players from Pennsylvania remain, with Thomas Parkes of Alburtis finishing Day 4 with the most chips at 3.172 million. Pittsburgh’s Chad Power is next with 2.78 million, and then it’s Matthew Sabia (1.81 million), Kenneth Smaron (1.806 million), Edward Pham (1.43 million), Jake Schindler (1.168 million), Donald Dombach (799,000), and Matt Glantz (690,000). Yoon, Esfandiari, Cheong Among Bracelet Winners Remaining In addition to all the names that have been mentioned, Brian Yoon (2.622 million), Antonio Esfandiari (2.583 million), Craig McCorkell (2.5 million), Chris Wallace (1.98 million), and Joseph Cheong (1.958 million) represent some of the WSOP gold bracelet winners still in the field. Yoon and Esfandiari are both three-time gold bracelet winners who have had some deep runs in the WSOP Main Event before. Yoon has finished in the top 60 on three separate occasions (2018, 2016, and 2011), and Esfandiari finished 24th in 2009. McCorkell took 13th in 2014, and Wallace finished 32nd in 2017. We also know very much about Cheong’s third-place finish behind Jonathan Duhamel and John Racener in 2010 that earned him $4.13 million. All Former Main Event Champs Gone Of course, not every player could advance. Three former WSOP Main Event champions began the day, with Johnny Chan, Chris Moneymaker, and Qui Nguyen still in the field, but all three of them busted out on Day 4. Moneymaker finished 687th for $20,200, Chan took 560th for $24,560, and Nguyen went out 455th for $30,780. Nguyen’s bust came when he got the last of his chips in with pocket fives only to lose out to an opponent’s two sixes. With no former WSOP Main Event champions in the field, we will see a brand new winner in 2019. Others to bust on Day 4 were Ricky Guan (362nd - $34,845), Scott Lazar (388th - $34,845), Jean-Robert Bellande (415th - $30,780), Bryan Campanello (435th - $30,780), Josh Arieh (485th - $27,390), Adam Owen (570th - $24,560), and Cliff Josephy (759th - $20,200). Day 5 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event starts at 12 pm PT on Wednesday, July 10 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino.
