  1. There were three more brand-new World Series of Poker bracelet winners crowned on Monday, but all of that was overshadowed by the emergence of one Phil Ivey in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship. Ivey took full advantage of the Day 2 registration opportunity and built his stack up to the top of chip counts. He was joined in the field by Tom Dwan, making his 2019 WSOP debut. Dash Dudley Brings Home $10,000 PLO Championship "No more min-cash Dash," That's what Dash Dudley had to say after he beat James Park heads-up to win the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship for a seven-figure score and his first career WSOP bracelet. Despite starting with the chip lead, Dudley knew the volatility of PLO could cause havoc at the final table and was prepared for any scenario that presented itself. “I knew stuff might happen. People might get chips and I might get short. [But] I feel real confident in PLO, even short," Dudley said. "Everyone gets real impatient in PLO when they're short-stacked, and it causes them to make some crucial mistakes. People will justify it as coolers, but they're really getting the money in at 20% or 30%. There's a lot of spots you can avoid." Dudley's previous best WSOP result came in 2010 when he finished eighth for $67,221. Park earned $671,802 for his runner-up finish. Final Table Payouts Dash Dudley - $1,086,967 James Park - $671,802 Joel Feldman - $463,814 Jeremy Ausm- $325,693 Kyle Montgomery - $232,680 Eoghan O'Dea - $169,173 Andrei Razov - $125,215 Will Jaffe - $94,380 Santiago Soriano Wins $800 No Limit Hold'em Deepstack Spaniard Santiago Soriano laid a bad beat on Amir Lehavot to finish off the $800 No Limit Hold'em Deepstack event on Tuesday night to win the first bracelet of his career. On the final hand of the tournament, Soriano raised to 5,000,000 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="th"] and Lehavot called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"]. All the money went in after the [poker card="tc"][poker card="8d"][poker card="3s"] flop with Lehavot at risk. The [poker card="ts"] moved Soriano into the lead and the [poker card="3d"] river only improved his hand to win the tournament. “It was surprising (Lehavot) had that big of a hand,” said Soriano. “I flopped top pair, and heads-up, top pair is very, very good. Then I bet pretty big and he raises, and I bet all-in and he has the aces. It was unfortunate for him that the ten was in there on the turn, but it was really amazing." Lehavot earned $229,410, the third biggest score of his WSOP career behind his $10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em Championship win in 2011, and his third-place finish in the 2013 WSOP Main Event. Third place finisher Benjamin Underwood earned $168,960 and added another feather in his impressive summer. Underwood, from Port Elgin, Ontario, has five WSOP cashes this summer. Along with baby cashes in the Big 50 and the Millionaire Maker, Underwood finished fourth in the $600 No Limit Hold'em Deepstack, fifth in the $800 No Limit Hold'em Deepstack. Final Table Payouts Santiago Soriano - $371,203 Amir Lehavot - $229,410 Benjamin Underwood - $168,960 Nick Blackburn - $125,432 Joao Barrosovalli - $93,866 Samuel Gagnon - $70,813 Daniele Dangelo - $53,858 Ori Hasson - $41,300 Jeffery Tahler - $31,933 Kevin Gerhart Wins $1,500 Razz Event Kevin Gerhart did almost all of the heavy lifting at the $1,500 Razz final table on his way to winning the first bracelet of his career and $119,054. Gerhart eliminated six of the last seven players. The 29-year-old Ohio native had a simple goal for his 2019 WSOP. "My goal this summer was just to make a final table, and the first final table you make, you win a bracelet? That’s unreal," Gerhart said. Sergio Braga finished runner-up for $73,577. Scott Clements finished sixth for $17,440 and earned 320.2 WSOP Player of the Year points which moved him into fourth place behind Upeshka De Silva, Jason Gooch, and current leader Dan Zack. Final Table Payouts Kevin Gerhart - $119,054 Sergio Braga - $73,577 Joseph Hoffman - $49,762 Andres Norbe Korn - $34,352 Jean Said - $24,216 Scott Clements - $17,440 Robert Campbell - $12,837 Grzegorz Wyraz - $9,663 Phil Ivey Leads $50,000 Poker Players Championship to Day 3 Don't look now poker fans, but Phil Ivey has the chip lead in one of the most prestigious events on the WSOP schedule. Ivey finished Day 2 of the $50,000 Poker Players Championship with 1,253,500 chips to edge out John Hennigan for the lead. Hennigan, who won this event in 2014, ended with 1,209,000. Only two other players, Chris Vitch and 2019 Poker Hall of Fame nominee David Oppenheim, ended the day with more than 1,000,000 in the bag. Josh Arieh, who started Day 2 with the lead, finished with 939,000 and the fifth best stack. The 38 remaining players in the field include an almost overwhelming number of notables. Isaac Haxton, Daniel Cates, Luke Schwartz, Shaun Deeb, David 'ODB' Baker, Jason Mercier, Prahlad Friedman, and Phil Galfond on moved onto Day 3. Action resumes 2 PM PT.

Kainalu McCue-Unciano, who lead this event after Day 2, sits second with 68,300,000. Gregory Katayama bagged up 55,100,000 for the third best stack. There were 49 players still chasing the bracelet when the day began. Some of the notables who didn't make it through the day were Andrew Moreno, Ryan Hughes, and Tom Koral.

Former #1 PocketFiver Steven van Zadelhoff and teammate Kenny Hallaert sit second, Tuan Le and Thanh Tran are third, and Jason Koon and Sosia Jiang are fourth. There were 278 teams at the start of the day. Some of the other players who managed to make it to Day 3 include Ryan Leng, Zachary Gruneberg, Florian Duta, and Jordan Cristos. The team of Jared Jaffee, Aaron Massey, and Ralph Massey started Day 2 with the chip lead and managed to make it to Day 3 but will be the shortest starting stack when play resumes at 1 PM PT.

This comes a week after he finished runner-up in the $600 NLHE/PLO Deepstack event. Dianlei Zhang finished with the next biggest stack at 790,000 and Bobby Oboodi is right behind him at 764,000.

Taking home the inaugural title was Michael Rocco, who earned $540,800 in first-place prize money. Rocco defeated Michael Dyer in heads-up play to win the title.

Gerhart and Kamphues Also Score Big at Wynn The $5,300 Championship wasn’t the only big event as part of the 2019 Wynn Winter Classic schedule.

In the $600 NL $250,000 Guarantee, a field of 727 entries generated a prize pool of $380,366. The top 80 places paid, and it was Kevin Gerhart walking away with the lion’s share of the prize pool.

  3. Kevin 'TheRealKG' Gerhart came out on top in the Event #20 ($500 PLO 6-Max) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online scoring a $97,511.65 payday and his second career bracelet. Besting 1,136 other entries, Gerhart started the final table as the chipleader and was dominant from the get-go. The first final table casualty was Shanmukha 'Shanmukha' Meruga. Meruga opened on the button to 560,000 and Gerhart completed from the big blind. Gerhart bet 1,200,000 on the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="9d"][poker card="3c"] flop to put Meruga all in. Meruga called for his tournament life. The at-risk Meruga turned over [poker card="Ts"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6s"] for second pair whilst chipleader Gerhart had bottom pair with his hand of [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3d"]. Gerhart improved to two-pair on the turn with the [poker card="4h"] and the [poker card="5h"] on the river ended the tournament for Meruga. Fifteen minutes later Adam 'AdamJ080584' Jones was sent to the virtual rail in fifth place. His 1,514,816 three-bet jam in the small blind was called by pre-flop raiser 'Duckmoney420.' 'Duckmoney420' showed [poker card="As"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="Qc"][poker card="6c"] which was behind Jones' [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Td"][poker card="Th"][poker card="4c"]. Jones was unable to hold as the board ran out [poker card="Qd"][poker card="9d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="6s"] giving Duckmoney420 queens full of sixes. The very next hand, Gerhart claimed another final table scalp eliminating Chris 'Robotbob47' Moorman for fourth. Moorman raised from the button to 600,000 and again Gerhart defended his big blind. The Englishman moved all-in for 933,119 on the [poker card="Js"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="7s"] and Gerhart snapped called with [poker card="Th"][poker card="5s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="9c"] for bottom two-pair. Moorman's [poker card="Ac"][poker card="6c"][poker card="8h"][poker card="4h"] improved to a pair on the [poker card="4d"] turn and despite making two-pair on the river with the [poker card="6d"], it wasn't enough to keep him in the running for WSOP glory. The action didn't let up as it went from three-handed to heads up in 14 minutes. Jenny 'Mobey' Svancara was denied the chance of becoming the first female 2020 World Series of Poker winner after Gerhart sent his third player from the final table to an early exit. In blind versus blind action, Gerhart raised to 600,000 from the small and Svancara called from the big. The flop came [poker card="Kh"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"], Gerhart bet 1,200,000, Svancara jammed her 2,665,016 stack and Gerhart called. Svancara was ahead on the flop with [poker card="8d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="8c"] for two-pair but a [poker card="Jh"] on the turn meant Gerhart's [poker card="5s"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="7h"][poker card="Js"] improved to a bigger two-pair. The [poker card="5h"] on the river eliminated Svancara for a $41,290.15 score. After a back and forth heads up battle between Gerhart and 'Duckmoney420', both players took over the chip lead on several occasions. Even with a 7:1 chip lead for 'Duckmoney420' at one stage, it wasn't enough to put away Gerhart. Gerhart took the chip lead once again after fading the diamond draw held by 'Duckmoney420'. All the chips went in on the [poker card="7c"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"] flop, Gerhart flopped the straight with [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Td"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3c"]. The turn and river came the [poker card="Js"] and [poker card="4h"] respectively meaning 'Duckmoney420' missed his nut diamond flush draw with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="8d"][poker card="2c"]. The final hand started with a 1,800,000 button raise from Gerhart which was defended by 'Duckmoney420'. The flop came [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="6s"], Duckmoney420 moved all in for 2,555,954 and Gerhart didn't hesitate calling the flop jam. 'Duckmoney420': [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="Qc"][poker card="6d"] Gerhart: [poker card="9h"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4c"] The [poker card="7s"] turn gave Gerhart the straight but 'Duckmoney420' was still alive with a flush draw. The spade didn't come on the river and the [poker card="2c"] put the proverbial final nail in the coffin for 'Duckmoney420' and eliminated him in second place for $60,323.53 while giving Gerhart his second career WSOP bracelet and a $97,571.65 payday. Final Table Payouts Kevin 'TheRealKG' Gerhart - $97,571.65 'Duckmoney420' - $60,323.53 Jenny 'Mobey' Svancara - $41,290.15 Chris 'Robotbob47' Moorman - $28,601.23 Adam 'AdamJ080584' Jones - $20,210.17 Shanmukha 'Shanmukha' Megura - $14,479.69 Faces in the Crowd Notable names such as Daniel Negreanu (25th - $2,814.07), Shaun Deeb (36th - $2,302.42), Ryan 'JoeyIsAMush' DePaulo (51st - $1,381.45) and 15-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth (95th - $920.97) all added another WSOP cash to their resume's but failed to reach the final table. Negreanu rolled back the years and eliminated Hellmuth. Negreanu, holding [poker card="8s"][poker card="4h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5d"] called Hellmuth's all-in pre-flop shove. The 'Poker Brat' was a favorite with [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="Kh"][poker card="Ts"] on the [poker card="As"][poker card="Jd"][poker card="7c"] flop but the [poker card="4c"] on the turn and the [poker card="3s"] on the river gave Negreanu the straight to eliminate Hellmuth.
