  2. Chalk up another win for Bryn Kenney in 2019. This time, there was no deal to be made as Kenney knocked out four of his final five opponents en route to a lightning-fast victory in the US Poker Open Event #7: $25,000 No Limit Hold’em for $450,000. The 60-entry field was narrowed down to a high-rolling who’s who final table of six. Kenney and Ben Yu were among the chip leaders however, there were four other formidable players in Nick Petrangelo, Keith Tilston, Nick Schulman and, eventual runner-up, Jake Schindler, who were all capable of coming from behind. Final Table Payouts 1. Bryn Kenney - $450,000 2. Jake Schindler - $300,000 3. Ben Yu – $210,000 4. Keith Tilston - $150,000 5. Nick Schulman - $120,000 6. Nick Petrangelo - $90,000 It only took a few hands before the bustouts began. The action folded to Nick Petrangelo in the small blind and he jammed with his remaining 13 big blinds holding [poker card="jc"][poker card="6c"]. Kenney, sitting in the big blind, ended up making the call holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="8h"]. The flop came [poker card="3d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="4s"] giving Petrangelo additional outs with a gutshot straight draw. The [poker card="kh"] on the turn put Kenney even further ahead in the hand. The [poker card="3c"]river ended Petrangelo’s run in Event #7 for $90,000. Roughly ten minutes later, Nick Schulman was all in for his tournament life. From the button, Schulman open-shoved his 12 big blind stack with [poker card="qh"][poker card="td"]. Then, from the small blind, Keith Tilston reshoved over the top with [poker card="ac"][poker card="8d"]. Ben Yu got out of the way and, with the cards on their backs, the duo saw a flop of [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"][poker card="7h"] providing both players a pair. The [poker card="kd"] turn gave Schulman a few more outs to the straight but the [poker card="8s"] river was no help the PokerGO commentator. Schulman finished in fifth place for $120,000, his second recorded cash of 2019. Even though he had just busted Schulman, Tiltson wasn’t long for this final table. Kenney, having both blinds covered, open-shoved from the button with [poker card="3s"][poker card="3c"]. Tilston, in the big blind, ended up making the call with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"], putting his tournament at stake. The flop came [poker card="2c"][poker card="ts"][poker card="kc"] providing Tilston some additional gutshot outs but the [poker card="7d"] fell on the turn and the [poker card="td"] on the river, giving the hand to Kenney's pocket threes. Tilston bowed out in fourth place for $150,000. It marks his fifth lifetime cash at the USPO. Ben Yu, who entered the day as the final table chip leader, clashed with Kenney in a huge hand which, in the end, left Yu crippled. Only a few hands after that confrontation, Kenney finished the job. Yu, with less than three big blinds, stuck it in from the small blind with [poker card="td"][poker card="6d"] and Kenney snap called holding the [poker card="qs"][poker card="js"]. The board ran out [poker card="3c"][poker card="4s"][poker card="kh"][poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] giving Kenney the flush and ending Yu’s run in third place. Yu picked up $210,000 for his efforts, his third cash of the 2019 USPO series. Kenney held a massive chip lead headed into heads up play, but Schindler started chipping away at it by winning the first few hands. However, as he had for the entirety of this brief final table, Kenney ended up on top in the most important hand. Kenney limped the button with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"] and Schindler shipped his [poker card="ac"][poker card="7d"] which Kenney quickly called. The flop [poker card="2d"][poker card="9c"][poker card="kh"] flop put Kenney in the lead. The turn came the [poker card="2h"] and the river the [poker card="8s"] securing the win for Kenney and providing Schindler the runner-up result and $300,000 in prize money. Kenney, the Aussie Millions Main Event winner, takes home $450,000 for the victory, sending his lifetime career live earnings north of $27,000,000. The final table for Event #8: $25,000 8 Game Mix takes place on Thursday.

  3. David Peters, one of the game's top tournament poker players, emerged victorious atop the 33-entry field in the 2019 US Poker Open $100,000 Main Event. Peters was the last man standing from an elite field of players and claimed the $1.32 million first-place prize. With the victory, Peters grabbed 350 points at surged to the top of the US Poker Open Championship leaderboard, beating out Sean Winter by just 10 points to win the overall title and an additional $100,000 in prize money. Final Table Results David Peters - $1,320,000 Chris Hunichen - $858,000 Keith Tilston - $528,000 Martin Zamani - $330,000 Ryan Riess - $264,000 To claim the overall USPO Championship, Peters cashed three times in the high-stakes series. He placed second in Event #4: $10,000 Short Deck for $100,800 and fifth in Event #9: $50,000 No-Limit Hold'em for $164,000 ahead of his Main Event victory. All told, Peters earned $1.584 million from his three USPO cashes this year and $1.684 million total when you include the $100,000 championship prize. Peters entered the final day fourth in chips with nine players remaining in the $100,000 Main Event. Leading the way was Chris Hunichen, and Keith Tilston, last year's USPO Main Event winner, was in second. Only the top five places were set to reach the money, but that wasn't the story. Sean Winter entered the 2019 USPO Main Event as the leaderboard frontrunner. He'd need to cash and fade Nick Schulman. If he failed to cash, Winter would be sweating both Schulman and Peters if they were still in. First to bust was Schulman, though, knocking him out of contention for the USPO Championship. He entered the day as the shortest stack and couldn't make anything happen on the final day. Schulman was eliminated in ninth place by Hunichen. With Schulman's bust, all Winter needed to do was cash and he'd lock up the overall USPO title. If he didn't cash, Peters could overtake him by the narrow margin of 10 points if Peters were to win the event. As it turned out, Winter went bust in eighth place when his [poker card="Ac"][poker card="tc"] couldn't win a flip against Tilston's [poker card="5s"][poker card="5d"]. That left Winter without a payday in the $100,000 buy-in Main Event and sitting and waiting to see how Peters would perform. Peters got a boost when he knocked out Jason Koon in seventh place, and then Ryan Riess took out Justin Bonomo in sixth place to send the final five players into the money. After Bonomo's bust, Peters found a double through Hunichen and found himself sitting second in chips heading into a break. Falling in fifth was Riess. He went out at the hands of Tilston and took home $264,000 for his efforts. It was then Martin Zamani hitting the rail in fourth for $330,000. Zamani was also knocked out by Tilston, as the 2018 USPO Main Event winner stretched his lead. After Zamani busted, Peters played an incredibly important pot with his tournament life on the line. He was all in preflop with the [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Qc"] against Tilston, who had the [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"]. Not only was Peters sweating his tournament life in the 2019 USPO Main Event, but Winter had a lot on the line, too. Peters flopped a queen and held from there to score a big double and move into the chip lead. From that point on, Peters never relinquished the lead. He busted Tilston in third place with his [poker card="Ac"][poker card="6c"] held up against Tilston's [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Qs"] and took a chip lead of 4.855 million to 1.745 million into heads-up play against Hunichen. Heads-up play didn't last long. Just a few hands in, Hunichen limped the button with the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="8c"] at blinds of 40,000-80,000 with an 80,000 big blind ante. Peters raised out of the big bling to 320,000 with the [poker card="9c"][poker card="9c"]. Hunichen responded by three-bet jamming for 2.65 million and Peters quickly made the call. The flop, turn, and river ran out [poker card="Jc"][poker card="Jh"][poker card="Ts"][poker card="8d"][poker card="6d"] and that was the end of the line for Hunichen, who earned $858,000 for his runner-up performance.

  4. Saturday might have been an off day for the final nine players in the 2019 World Series of Poker, but there was plenty of other action including Daniel Negreanu getting heads-up for a bracelet for the second time this summer and a longtime PocketFiver winning his first piece of WSOP hardware. Jerry Odeen Wins $1,500 Mixed NLHE/PLO He might only be 24 years old, but Sweden's Jerry Odeen has been dreaming about winning a WSOP bracelet for nearly a decade. Odeen, who has been as high as #12 in the PocketFives Rankings, made his dream come true on Saturday by winning the $1,500 Mixed No Limit Hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha event. “This is something I always wanted since I started playing poker. I started watching poker when I was like 15 years old now I’m here like nine, ten years later. I got the bracelet, it feels pretty surreal actually,” Odeen said. “I always said I’m not going to quit before I get a bracelet. I had one close call before, I got fourth. It’s achievable but obviously, need a lot of luck. I don’t think I lost a single all in. It’s tough to lose then if you don’t lose all ins.” Odeen beat England's Peter Linton heads up for the bracelet and added $304,793 to his lifetime earnings. Linton had to settle for $188,368 as the runner-up. Adam Demersseman finished third for $135,093. Final Table Payouts Jerry Odeen - $304,793 Peter Linton - $188,368 Adam Demersseman - $135,093 Lucas Greenwood - $98,027 Ayaz Mahmood ($71,979) Eddie Blumenthal - $53,490 Jeremy Kottler - $40,236 Gary Bolden - $30,640 Rania Nasreddine - $23,625 Keith Tilston Denies Daniel Negreanu $100K High Roller Victory Keith Tilston might have been the least known player at the final table of the $100,000 High Roller, but that didn't stop him from emerging victorious and in the process prevented Daniel Negreanu from winning his seventh bracelet and taking over the WSOP Player of the Year lead. Tilston beat Negreanu heads-up to secure the bracelet and a $2,792,406 payday. His career earnings are now just over $6.4 million, but for Tilston, the win was as much about proving that he has the mettle to play the big buy-in events as much as it was about the money. “I do play a lot of high roller events and I feel good to know I can at least hang with these guys. Obviously, there’s a lot of luck in each individual tournament and you gotta run well," Tilston said. "I certainly don’t claim to be as good as a lot of these guys, but it feels good I can at least hang with them.” Negreanu now has two runner-up finishes this summer. The first came in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud event. This second-place finish added 630.2 POY points to Negreanu's total and moved him to fifth place, 333.04 points behind current leader Robert Campbell. Had Negreanu won, he would have been ahead of the rest of the field by 297.46 points. Nick Schulman finished third for $1,187,802, the biggest WSOP cash of his career. Final Table Payouts Keith Tilston - $2,792,406 Daniel Negreanu - $1,725,838 Nick Schulman - $1,187,802 Igor Kurganov - $840,183 Brandon Adams - $611,258 Dominik Nitsche - $457,772 Sergi Reixach - $353,202 Christoph Vogelsang - $281,025 Shaun Deeb Cruises To Day 1B Lead of The Closer The hunt for a second straight WSOP POY title continued on Saturday for Shaun Deeb. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver finished Day 1B of the $1,500 The Closer event with 1,172,000 and the chip lead. The only other player to finish with more than 1,000,000 was Denis Gnidash with 1,058,000. Jeff Gross ended up with the third biggest stack at 813,000. Just 45 of the 724 Day 1B entrants survived the day including Rex Clinkscales, Mukul Pahuja, Mike Leah, Kane Kalas, and defending champion Joe Cada. Day 1C begins Sunday at 11 AM PT. Top 10 Chip Counts Shaun Deeb - 1,172,000 Denis Gnidash - 1,058,000 Jeff Gross - 813,000 Andrew Ostapchenko - 783,000 Abhinav Iyer - 782,000 Daniel Johnson - 730,000 Devin Looney - 628,000 Robert Lipkin - 627,000 Rex Clinkscales - 599,000 Toshiyuki Onda - 597,000 John Richards Leads $3,000 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha Day 2 of the $3,000 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha event saw the field dwindle from 173 down to 24 and John Richards stands atop the chip counts with nearly 2 million. Richards finished with 1,949,000 and now holds a healthy lead over the rest of the field. The second biggest stack belongs to Abraham Faroni with 1,226,000. Right behind him is Michael Kuney with 1,123,000. Two players who picked up the first bracelet of their career also bagged big stacks. Juha Helppi, with 1,085,000, is fourth while Joseph Cheong, with 1,039,000 is sixth. Other notables who made it to Day 3 include Nacho Barbero, Brandon Shack-Harris, Joao Vieira, and Noah Schwartz. Action resumes at 2 PM and will play down to a final six players before stopping for the night.

Bleiker finished play Saturday with 425,400 and leads the remaining 113 survivors. Almost 100,000 behind Bleiker is Pennsylvania poker pro John Andress and former #1-ranked PocketFiver Yuri Dzivielevski with 329,000 each.

  5. As the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event was playing down to a final table inside the Amazon Room, another eight events were in action on Friday including three that resulted in a player winning the first gold bracelet of their career and another player earning his second. James Anderson, Maximilian Klostermeier, Ivan Deyra, and Shankar Pillai all contributed to tying the record for most bracelets awarded in a single day. James Anderson Ships Little One for One Drop Just five players returned to a chip stack on Day 5 of the $1,111 Little One for One Drop and James Anderson was right in the middle with an average stack. He overcame that and the massive chip lead of Brazil's Fernando Karam to win $690,686 and his first bracelet. The 33-year-old recently returned to playing poker after taking some time away. “I just started playing again a couple of months ago so this one definitely feels good,” Anderson said. “I wanted to get away from the game for a little bit. I was grinding really hard and wanted to take a little break from it. I feel good now. My mind is a lot fresher now, I have a different perspective, and hopefully, it continues. It’s a good start.” Karam ended up taking home $426,543 for his runner-up finish. Final Table Payouts James Anderson - $690,686 Fernando Karam - $426,543 Marco Guibert - $316,233 Liran Betito - $236,151 Shalom Elharar - $177,639 Nils Tolpingrud - $134,608 Mark Strodl - $102,757 Ying Fu - $79,029 Bob Mather - $61,238 Bounty Hunter Maximilian Klostermeier Wins $1,500 PLO Bounty Event Maximilian Klostermeier really did live out a poker players dream this week. The 23-year-old German turned his first career WSOP cash into gold. Klostermeier beat Ireland's David Callaghan heads up to win the first bracelet of his career and $177,823. “I have only played poker professionally for about a year, so to win a bracelet this soon is amazing," Klostermeier. "This is the only PLO game I have played. I have only played a couple of online tournaments, 25 at the most. PLO is not my main game, I play Hold’em.” Bryce Yockey finished third for $77,893. That's his eighth cash this summer and fourth time finishing in the top eight. Final Table Payouts Maximilian Klostermeier - $177,823 David Callaghan - $109,844 Bryce Yockey - $77,893 Ryan Lenaghan - $55,939 Jason Stockfish - $40,691 Tim Seidensticker - $29,987 Scott Sharpe - $22,391 Heng Zhang - $16,944 Joseph Liberta - $12,996 Vive la France: Ivan Deyra Wins $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Ivan Deyra has been to a WSOP final table before, but only to cheer on his friends. On Friday he was the one being serenaded after beating David Gonzalez for the bracelet in the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em event. “The main goal was to have a bracelet. When I was young I watched TV with stars in my eyes. To be here and to win it, it’s amazing. It’s like a real dream,” Deyra said. He's the third player from France to win gold this year joining Jeremy Saderne and Thomas Cazayous. Deyra's previous best WSOP result came earlier this summer when he finished eighth in the $1,000 Double Stack for $78,638. Gonzalez, who started the day with the chip lead, earned $234,882. Guillaume Nolet earned $162,575 for finishing third. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver Patrick Leonard came in fourth for $114,347 and his seventh cash of the summer.

Pillai beat out 184 other WSOP bracelet winners to win the $1,500 Bracelet Winners Only event for $71,580. New Jersey online poker grinder Michael Gagliano finished runner-up for $44,232. Tommy Nguyen rounded out the podium finishers with a third-place finish and $31,176 score. The event was part of the celebrations for the 50th annual WSOP and only players who had previously won a gold bracelet could enter.

He's been waiting to win his second ever since and on Saturday he'll start the final table of the $1,500 NLHE/PLO event in pole position with seven players left. Mahmood bagged up 8,430,000 and sits almost 2 million ahead of the second biggest stack. Lucas Greenwood is the owner that 6,515,000 stack. Jeremy Kottler is third with 5,145,000. There were 47 players at the start of the day. David 'ODB' Baker, Lexy Gavin, Steve Sung, Matt Giannetti, and Anton Wigg all busted before the final table but did manage to pick up a cash.
