  1. Pat Lyons topped the 1,382-player field in Event #17 ($777 No Limit Hold'em) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online to win $173,551.56 and the first bracelet of his career. Lyons now has a WSOP bracelet and World Poker Tour title on his resume. Lyons, who won the WPT Legends of Poker in 2016, eliminated the final two players standing in between himself and victory early Saturday morning. Dave 'DunningKrugr' Alfa opened to 240,000 from middle position with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"] before Lyons re-raised to 637,500 from the hijack with [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. Alfa moved all in for 2,912,994 and Lyons called. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="th"][poker card="qh"] to give Lyons a full house against Alfa's flopped two pair to eliminate Alfa in ninth. Fresh off finishing runner-up in Event #16 just 24 hours earlier, Julian 'Julian' Parmann was back at the final table hoping to improve on that result. His tournament run ended sooner than he had hoped for. Parmann moved all in for 555,005 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"] from middle position only to have Barry '_MLB_' Wenger call from the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"]. Both players completely missed on the [poker card="7d"][poker card="5c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="jd"] runout to send Parmann out in eighth place. The next elimination played out very similar with Wenger still in control. Scott 'BudLightLime' Hempel moved all in for 884,182 from middle position with [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] before Wenger called from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"]. Wenger took a firm grasp on the pot with the [poker card="qs"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3h"] flop and Hempel was unable to get any help from the [poker card="9h"] turn or [poker card="5h"] river and was out in seventh. Ten minutes later, Wenger sent another player to th rail. From UTG, 'veepoh' moved all in for 437,104 and Wenger and Jim 'BOCARATONE' Collopy called from the small and big blind respectively. Wenger and Collopy checked through the [poker card="js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4d"] flop and [poker card="2h"] turn before Wenger bet 730,656 after the [poker card="9d"] river. Collopy folded and Wenger showed [poker card="ts"][poker card="7c"] for a rivered straight while 'veepoh' showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="3d"] and was eliminated in sixth. Collopy's night lasted just another five minutes. From UTG, Collopy moved all in for 2,479,684 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="jh"] and Wenger called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"]. The board ran out [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2h"] to give Wenger another pot and end Collopy's run with a fifth place result. Wenger continued to maintain control over the table and sent yet another player to the rail just two minutes after busting Collopy. Action folded to Wenger in the small blind and he moved all in for 2,479,684 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"] and Event #1 winner Jonathan 'Art.Vandelay' Dokler called from the small blind for 2,572,760 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="js"]. Dokler could do nothing but watch the [poker card="ad"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="qc"] runout end his run at a second bracelet and eliminate him in fourth. Those string of eliminations gave Wenger 65% of the chips in play three-handed but the next 10 minutes were anything but kind to him. Down to just 11 big blinds, Wenger shoved from the button for 2,798,736 with [poker card="kc"]td] and Lyons called from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"]. Wenger got no help through the [poker card="9c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="4s"][[poker card="7c"][poker card="qh"] runout and was done in third place. Lyons had a better than 9-1 chip lead over 'NJ_Glive' when heads up play began. 'NJ_Glive' doubled twice in the first five hands between the two but ultimately was unable to get any closer. From the button, 'NJ_Glive' raised to 560,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] and then called when Lyons moved all in from the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"][poker card="2h"] flop gave both players a pair with 'NJ_Glive' in front with aces. The turn was the [poker card="jc"] but the [poker card="qh"] river gave Lyons trip queens and eliminated 'NJ_Glive' in second place giving Lyons the bracelet and $173,551.56. Final Table Payouts Pat 'Ichiikawawa' Lyons - $173,551.56 NJ_Glive - $107,478.14 Barry '_MLB_' Wenger - $76,327.86 Jonathan 'Art.Vandelay' Dokler - $54,948.32 Jim 'Bocaratone' Collopy - $40,147.10 veepoh - $29,602.44 Scott 'BudLightLime' Hempel - $22,250.20 Julian 'Julian' Parmann - $16,832.76 Dave 'DunningKrugr' Alfa - $12,963.16 Faces in the Crowd Daniel Negreanu finished 123rd for $1,354.36 to pick up his sixth cash of the Series. Other notables who managed to pick up a cash on Friday included Roland 'prngls12' Israelashvili (12th - $10,060.96), David 'dehhhhh' Coleman (32nd - $4,159.82), Chris Moorman (33rd - $4,159.82), Upeshka 'gomezhamburg' De Silva (50th - $2,902.20), Ryan 'protential' Laplante (69th - $2,128.28), and Dan 'PepperPrince' Zack (147th - $1,257.62).
  2. For almost two decades, poker fans have been pestering Brian Koppelman and David Levien to write a sequel to Rounders. In the final scene Mike McDermott jumps in a taxi in New York City and tells the driver to take him to the airport. "So where you headed?" "I'm going to Vegas." "Vegas, huh?" "Yup." "Good luck man." The cab drives off into the distance and the credits roll as Counting Crows' Baby, I'm a Big Star Now plays, but what happens after Mike gets to Las Vegas? Well, Kopelman and Levien are busy with their hit show Billions, and a sequel seems highly unlikely, but 2020 World Series of Poker Online Event #1 winner Jonathan Dokler might just be writing it on his own. Six months ago, the 27-year-old had a good-paying job at a trading firm in New York City. "I decided it wasn't the life for me. I quit my job, moved out to Vegas," Dokler said. He didn't take a cab to Kennedy though - he took a train to Newark and then flew to Las Vegas. Everything started coming together about a month earlier though. Still working his 9-5, Dokler went to Atlantic City to play in some Borgata Winter Poker Open events. "I took a Greyhound from New York to Atlantic City for a quick trip, a couple of days before I had to get back to work. I hadn't even quit my job yet but I was planning to very soon," Dokler said. Dokler, with all of four live cashes to his credit totalling a little more than $21,000 in earnigns, beat out 76 other entries to win a $5,000 High Roller event for $100,829. Some of the players that he outlasted included former #1-ranked PocketFiver Paul Volpe, Faraz Jaka, Ian O’Hara, Jerry Wong, Christian Harder, and Jake Schwartz. "It was a small field, only 77 people, so it's nothing crazy, but it was cool to play that event, against that class of field and have a good result," Dokler said. Having picked up the game in college in 2013, Dokler's competitive side fueled his desire to get better at the game. He began playing more, watching Run It Once videos, and talking over hands with friends. As time went by, Dokler grew more and more passionate about the game and he kept flirting with the idea of playing professionally. The bus ride back to New York City gave Dokler time to think and the Borgata win made it crystal clear to him that he needed to follow his gut. In early March, Dokler packed up his stuff and left for Las Vegas. His original plan was to use Las Vegas as a home base of sorts as he travelled the world playing poker. "I was actually planning on travelling for a lot of tournaments. I was going to be in South America for some of the big PokerStars stuff, and I wanted to play the Irish Poker Open, WPT Amsterdam," Dokler said. That’s when Dokler's 2020 story - and everybody else's - really lost the narrative. "I got out here, I had an Airbnb for a couple of days and one of the places I went to go eat after finishing a session, they'd shut down. That's how I found out about the shut down in Vegas," Dokler said, referring to the coronavirus pandemic that shuttered casinos and many Las Vegas businesses. He did not bring many personal belongings with him to Las Vegas, so he quickly ditched the Airbnb and found an apartment to rent and began getting set up to play as much online poker as possible. He had the necessities though, even if he didn't have the essentials. "I didn't have toilet paper for the first month or so, but I had a computer and an internet connection, enough to keep me happy," Dokler said. Happy indeed. In late March, Dokler earned $77,910 and a Circuit ring for winning WSOP Circuit Super Series Event #9 ($500 NLHE Monster Stack) on WSOP.com. That was really just a pre-cursor to last Wednesday when Dokler kicked off the WSOP Online by beating 1,714 other entries to win Event #1 ($500 NLHE Kickoff) for $130,425.75 and a WSOP bracelet. But even as Dokler was grinding his way towards the win, he was multi-tabling events across multiple sites and didn't think anything would come of it. "I was playing a lot of tables so I wasn't even paying super close attention to the bracelet event until it was actually getting kind of close," Dokler said. "I had some more interesting spots that didn't really pan out and I was able to run up a bunch of chips in the bracelet event and make that happen." So inside of six months, Dokler won six figures in a live event, quit his job, moved across the country, quarantined himself in a new apartment, won a WSOP Circuit ring and then became the first WSOP bracelet winner of 2020. He might be relatively new to the scene, but he understands his recent run is thanks to a combination of his skill and some luck. "I have friends who are much better at poker than me that don't have any bracelets and there are also players that are worse than me that have multiple bracelets," Dokler said. "I'm glad I won but the bracelet itself I don't attach any particular significance to it." With three weeks of events left, Dokler plans to continue to grind as much of the WSOP.com schedule as possible and hasn't yet made up his mind about leaving the country to play the GGPoker bracelet events. "I actually haven't decided yet. It's tough because you've gotta get set up in a different country and all that," Dokler said. "And I'm not sure if the borders are going to be open yet. We'll see."
  3. The opening event of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online events had a little bit everything that makes the WSOP so special. A huge field, a deep run by none other than Mr. WSOP himself, Phil Hellmuth, and a final table that saw a new member, Jonathan Dokler, join the bracelet winner club. Event #1 ($500 No Limit Hold'em Kickoff) drew 1,715 total entries from 1,195 unique players to create a $771,750 prize pool. Dokler's eventual first place prize of $130,426 is the largest single prize on WSOP.com this year, beating the $130,410 score that Champie Douglas earned in the $525 Main Event of the Super Circuit Series earlier this year. As the field dwindled down to two tables, the field included Hellmuth gunning for a 16th bracelet, former World Poker Tour champ Taylor von Kriegenberg looking to add a WSOP bracelet to his resume, and WPT commentator and WSOP bracelet winner Tony Dunst hoping for a second bracelet. Hellmuth was the only one of those three to not make the final table. Taylor von Kriegenbergh moved all-in from the hijack for 751,580 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="ts"] only to have Justin 'MadTitan' Turner call from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"]. The board ran out [poker card="tc"][poker card="6c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2c"][poker card="jh"] to give von Kriegenbergh top pair on the flop before Turner made the nut flush on the turn to pick up the first elimination of the night. A few minutes later, Jonathan 'Art.Vandelay' Dokler picked up his first victim of the final table. Action folded to Mark 'NostraDonkus' Liedtke on the button and he moved all-in for 1,017,824 with [poker card="qh"][poker card="7s"]. Dokler called from the big blind with [poker card="9h"]][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2d"] flop missed Liedtke and he could do nothing but watch as the [poker card="2h"] turn and [poker card="9c"] river gave Dokler a full house to send Liedtke out in eighth place. The fast pace of eliminations continued as a blind versus blind battle two hands later ended one player's tournament. Michael 'DDSpade' Balan opened to 390,000 from the small blind and 'djp1006' defended his big blind. The flop came [poker card="qc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8s"] and Balan bet 460,000. 'djp1006' moved all-in behind him for 1,470,536. Balan called and tabled [poker card="th"][poker card="7d"] for middle pair while while 'djp1006' was ahead with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"]. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] but the river was the [poker card="td"] to give Balan trip tens to bust 'djp1006' in seventh. No one player was able to seize control of the final table to this point with the fourth elimination of the night coming at the hands of a fourth unique player ten minutes later. 'ChefShap' moved all-in from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="5c"] with Shawn 'SayGoodNight' Daniels calling from the big blind with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. Daniels stayed in control through the [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="8h"] run out to send 'ChefShap' to the rail in sixth place. The final five players battled for 20 minutes with Dunst holding the chip lead despite not having been responsible for a single final table elimination. Two other players who had sent players packing battled in the next bustout. From the small blind, Balan raised to 555,000 and Dokler re-raised to 1,200,000 from the big blind. Balan called and the two players saw a flop of [poker card="kh"][poker card="td"][poker card="4d"]. Balan checked, Dokler bet 680,000 and Balan called. The turn was the [poker card="2d"] and Balan shoved his last 2,840,000 into the middle and Dokler called. Balan showed [poker card="qd"][poker card="ts"] for second pair and the third nut flush draw only to be shown [poker card="kd"][poker card="4h"] by Dokler for two pair and a better flush draw. The [poker card="3c"] river offered Balan no help and he was sent packing in fifth. Down to four players, Dunst finally found himself a victim. From the button, Dunst raised to 560,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"]. Daniels moved all-in for 1,538,586 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] and Dunst called. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6d"] flop gave Daniels all kinds of outs. The [poker card="6h"] turn was not one of them and neither was the [poker card="jc"] river to send him home in fourth place. Unfortunately for Dunst, his run didn't last much longer after an all-in preflop flip didn't go his way. Dunst bet 560,000 from the button with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"] and Dokler responded by three-betting to 1,800,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"]. Dunst moved all-in for 9,450,881 and Dokler called. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="5c"][poker card="2s"] flop was a safe one for Dunst and the [poker card="th"] turn kept him in control. The [poker card="kh"] river however gave Dokler top pair and eliminated Dunst in third place. Heads-up play lasted just 20 minutes thanks largely to Dokler holding a better-than 3-1 lead over Turner after Dunst's elimination. On the final hand Turner bet his last 4,765,824 with [poker card="ts"][poker card="6s"] and Dokler called with [poker card="4h"][poker card="4s"]. The [poker card="6c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3d"] flop gave Turner top pair but Dokler was now drawing to an open-ended straight. The [poker card="2h"] turn completed that draw and all Dokler could do was watch as the meaningless [poker card="5d"] river completed the hand to eliminate him and award Dokler the win and his first career WSOP bracelet. The win comes three months after Dokler picked up a WSOP Circuit Ring in the Super Circuit Series on WSOP.com and five months after his win in the Borgata Winter Poker Open High Roller for $100,829. Final Table Payouts Jonathan 'Art.Vandelay' Dokler - $130,426 Justin 'MadTitan' Turner - $80,416 Tony 'Panoramic' Dunst - $57,881 Shawn 'SayGoodNight' Daniels - $42,060 Michael 'DDSpade' Balan - $30,947 'ChefShap' - $22,998 'djp1006' - $17,287 Mark 'NostraDonkus' Liedtke - $13,120 Taylor 'ZeroTo100' Von Kriegenbergh - $10,110 Notable Finishes Hellmuth was certainly the biggest name to make the money on opening day but not the only familiar face starting off the Series with a cash. Jonathan 'havuuuuuc' Turner (12th - $7,782), Ryan 'Toosick' Tosoc (25th - $3,935.92), Dan 'feeltheflow' Sindelar (29th - $3,164.17), Mike 'mouth123' Matusow (44th - $2,623.95), Jesse 'MrJesseJames' Sylvia (137th - $1,003.27), Katie 'katelin' Lindsay (149th - $1,003.27), Napun 'javatini' Java (159th - $926.10), and Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo (247th - $771.75) and managed to work their way into the money on Wednesday night.
