  1. Asi Moshe is no stranger to the World Series of Poker winner’s circle, and on Tuesday he joined the ranks of two-time WSOP bracelet winners when he captured his second piece of gold in WSOP Europe’s Event #2: €1,650 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Deepstack. Moshe topped a field of 221 entries to earn the €82,280 top prize. Moshe entered the final table with the chip lead and rode that lead to victory. The Israeli player now has more than $2.15 million in live tournament earnings. Moshe’s first WSOP bracelet came at the 2014 WSOP in Las Vegas, when he topped a field of 2,396 entries in a $1,500 no-limit hold’em tournament to win $582,321. Final Table Results 1st: Asi Moshe - €82,280 2nd: Robert Schulz - €50,842 3rd: James Bullimore - €33,149 4th: Giuliano Bendinelli - €22,210 5th: Van Tiep Nguyen - €15,303 6th: Viktor Katzenberger - €10,852 Moshe started off the final table winning the first pot and never looked back. He busted Viktor Katzenberger in sixth place and sent Van Tiep Nguyen home in fifth place before James Bullimore stepped in to knock out Giuliano Bendinelli in fourth place. During three-handed play, the three stacks pulled close to even before Moshe stepped on the gas once again to widen the gap. He then knocked out Bullimore in third place with the [poker card="Kc"][poker card="9c"] against Bullimore's [poker card="Jc"][poker card="8h"]. Moshe had raised to 140,000 from the small blind with the blinds at 25,000-50,000 with a 40,000 big blind ante. Bullimore called to see the [poker card="Th"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="9s"] flop and Moshe fired 120,000. Bullimore kicked it up with a raise to 305,000, to which Moshe called to see the [poker card="Qc"] hit the turn. After Moshe checked, Bullimore bet 525,000. Moshe called and the dealer delivered the [poker card="2c"] on the river. Moshe moved all in with his flush and Bullimore found a call with a lesser straight to bust in third. Busting Bullimore gave Moshe around 75% of the chips in play entering heads-up action against Robert Schulz. Schulz tried to fight back, but in the end, Moshe proved too strong an opponent. Schulz did land a couple of double ups, but nothing that could really dent Moshe’s stack as they came after Moshe had cut him down even more. On the final hand, Moshe moved all in from the button with the [poker card="Ad"][poker card="4h"]. Schulz called off his last 12 big blinds with the [poker card="Kd"][poker card="8h"]. The flop, turn, and river came [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Jc"][poker card="2s"][poker card="Jd"][poker card="Th"] and Schulz was out in second place, earning €50,842.
  2. The 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is in the books, with notable victories coming from Ramon Colillas in the PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship, David 'Chino' Rheem in the PCA Main Event, Sam Greenwood in the PCA $100,000 Super High Roller, and Martin Zamani in the PCA $25,000 High Roller. Each of those players earned mammoth payouts from their victories, but where do they stack up on the 2019 money leaderboard? Let’s take a look. The $25,000 buy-in PSPC was such an enormous tournament that the top three finishers from that event make up the top three spots on the 2019 PCA money list, with Colillas on top thanks to the huge $5.1 million score he earned. Runner-up in that event, Julien Martini, sits second on the list, and third-place finisher Marc Rivera is third on the list. Here are the top 25 money earners from the 2019 PCA festival. Top 25 2019 PCA Money List 1. Ramon Colillas - $5,102,100 2. Julien Martini - $2,974,000 3. Marc Rivera - $2,168,000 4. Sam Greenwood - $1,954,860 5. Scott Baumstein - $1,657,000 6. David 'Chino' Rheem - $1,576,200 7. Jason Koonce - $1,304,000 8. Henrik Hecklen - $1,284,260 9. Rainer Kempe - $1,202,760 10. Jesus Cortes - $1,153,440 11. Stephen Chidwick - $1,084,322 12. Marc Perrault - $1,040,520 13. Talal Shakerchi - $994,300 14. Daniel Strelitz - $964,020 15. Alex Foxen - $904,040 16. Martin Zamani - $895,110 17. Farid Jattin - $746,000 18. Igor Kurganov - $697,100 19. Sean Winter - $673,120 20. Scott Wellenbach - $671,240 21. Chris Hunichen - $627,340 22. Steffen Sontheimer - $623,220 23. Dominik Nitsche - $606,360 24. Pavel Veksler - $560,240 25. Justin Bonomo - $533,370 As you can see, Greenwood sits fourth after having won $1.954 million from the 2019 PCA series. Greenwood's big win was in the $100,000 Super High Roller when he scored a $1.775 million first-place prize, but he also added scores of $89,320, $69,100, and $20,980 to his bankroll. Greenwood was one of 21 players to cash at least four times at the 2019 PCA. Another player to cash four times was the player 18th on the 2019 PCA money leaderboard, Igor Kurganov. He banked scores of $378,760, $129,780, $121,040, and $67,450 for a total of $697,100. The largest of those four scores was a sixth-place finish in the $100,000 Super High Roller that Greenwood was victorious in. Other than Greenwood and Kurganov, no player cashed four times in the top 25. Several players in the top 25 cashed three times, though, in addition to Greenwood and Kurganov, of course. Those players were Rainer Kempe, Jesus Cortes, Stephen Chidwick, Daniel Strelitz, Alex Foxen, Sean Winter, and Steffan Sontheimer. Kempe won the most money of that bunch with more than $1.2 million in payouts. He placed fourth in a $25,000 no-limit hold’em event before he won a $50,000 no-limit hold’em event and a $10,200 no-limit hold’em knockout turbo. The $50,000 buy-in tournament that Kempe won earned him $908,000. Foxen doesn't appear that he's going to slow down after an epic 2018 saw him haul in more than $6.6 million in live tournament earnings. Foxen has already won more than $900,000 in 2019 thanks to his performances at the 2019 PCA. He placed 11th in a $25,000 buy-in event, second in the $50,000 event that Kempe won, and third in another $50,000 buy-in tournament. Foxen's three scores were for $45,020, $651,980, and $207,040 in those three events, respectively. Four players cashed five times each at the 2019 PCA, but none of them ranked higher than 75th on the 2019 PCA money list. Sitting in 75th overall with a total of $136,460 won was Ariel Celestino. Daniel Tang, Sean Legendre, and Fernand Dos Santos Ferreira were the others to cash five times during the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure tournament series. How did the 2019 PCA change the festival's all-time money list? With a little help from our friends at HendonMob.com, here’s a look at the new top 25 following the completion of the 2019 PCA. Top 25 PCA All-Time Money List 1. Bryn Kenney - $6,262,731 2. Ramon Colillas - $5,102,100 3. Steve O'Dwyer - $3,910,382 4. Tony Gregg - $3,183,095 5. Poorya Nazari - $3,000,000 6. Julien Martini - $2,974,000 7. Scott Seiver - $2,970,620 8. Sam Greenwood - $2,927,337 9. Galen Hall - $2,877,080 10. Vanessa Selbst - $2,824,640 11. Jason Koon - $2,645,595 12. Isaac Haxton - $2,583,616 13. Justin Bonomo - $2,524,742 14. Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier - $2,484,120 15. Daniel Negreanu - $2,348,097 16. Harrison Gimbel - $2,329,220 17. Dan Shak - $2,323,840 18. Byron Kaverman - $2,307,235 19. Cary Katz - $2,257,420 20. Marc Rivera - $2,168,000 21. Mustapha Kanit - $2,077,000 22. Dimitar Danchev - $1,985,000 23. John Dibella - $1,960,700 24. Daniel Dvoress - $1,946,102 25. Tyler Reiman - $1,937,770 As you can see, Bryn Kenney reigns supreme. He came into the 2019 PCA with a big lead on this list, thanks to $6.245 million in earnings from the PCA, and Kenney added a small cash by his standards of $17,620 to move up to $6.262 million. The most notable additions to the top 25 of the PCA all-time money list were three players we already talked about, Colillas, Martini, and Rivera. Those three finished first, second, and third in the 2019 PSPC. Colillas moved to second on PCA's all-time money list, Martini jumped to sixth, and Rivera went up to 20th. Another big jump was had by Greenwood, who entered the 2019 PCA with $972,477 in earnings from the series. After winning nearly $2 million this year, Greenwood shot up the all-time PCA leaderboard to eighth with nearly $3 million in earnings total from the event. Justin Bonomo also increased his standing, going from 17th to 13th on the all-time PCA list after winning $533,370 at the 2019 PCA. Notable departures from the top 5 PCA all-time money list were Christopher Oliver, Eugene Katchalov, Will Molson, and Nick Petrangelo.
  3. The highlight of the final day of the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure might have been the final table of the Main Event, but on one of the outer tables, Martin Zamani was putting on a show of his own in the $25,000 High Roller event. Zamani beat out a final table that included Thomas Muehlocker, Sean Winter and Dominik Nitsche to pick up $895,110 and just the second win of his career. Following Sam Greenwood's elimination in ninth place, the official final table was ready for action. It took just 10 minutes for a short-stacked Davidi Kitai to find a hand to attempt to double up with. Thomas Muehlocker raised to 45,000 from middle position before Kitai moved all in for 165,000. Muehlocker called and showed [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"] which put him well behind Kitai's [poker card="qd"][poker card="qc"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="ts"][poker card="8c"] flop was a safe one for Kitai as was the [poker card="5c"] turn. The [poker card="js"] river, however, gave Muehlocker two pair and sent Kitai to the rail in 8th place. Five minutes later, Sean Winter joined him in the payouts line. Winter raised to 100,000 from middle position, Tom-Aksel Bedell called from the cutoff before Zamani re-raised to 280,000 from the button. Winter called all in, Bedell also moved all in forcing Zamani to fold. Bedell tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] while Winter showed {as][poker card="th"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3h"] flop changed nothing and after the [poker card="4c"] turn, Winter could only collect his things and watch the meaningless [poker card="9d"] hit the river to confirm his seventh place finish. The pace of play took a significant hit as six-handed play continued for 2.5 hours before the next elimination occurred. Nitsche raised from the button to 60,000 and Gianluca Speranza called from the big blind. After the [poker card="qh"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2s"] flop, Speranza check-raised Nitsche from 50,000 to 185,000 and Nitsche called. The turn was the [poker card="5s"] and Speranza bet 220,000 and Nitsche called. Speranza then moved all in after the [poker card="6c"] and Nitsche called and showed [poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"] for a six-high stright while Speranza tabled [poker card="qs"][poker card="5h"] for two pair. Just 15 minutes later, two more players were sent to the rail. Markus Durnegger moved all in from the button, Bedell moved all in over the top for 1,625,0000 and Zamani called from the big blind. Durnegger showed [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"], Bedell had [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"] and Zamani was well ahead with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="js"][poker card="8s"] to give Zamani the pot and eliminate Durnegger in fifth and Bedell in fourth. A little over an hour later, Muehloecker's run was cut short. Nitsche folded the button, Muehlocker completed from the small blind before Zamani raised to 250,000 from the big blind. Muehloecker responded by moving all for 1,055,000 and Zamani called. Zamani had [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"] while Muehloecker tabled [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="3h"] flop was no help for Muehloecker and neither was the [poker card="9c"] turn or [poker card="8c"] river and Muehloecker was out in third. Heads-up play began with Zamani holding a 2.5-1 chip lead over Nitsche and it took just 20 minutes for Zamani to have all the chips. After Nitsche limped his button, Zamani raised to 360,000 and Nitsche called. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"][poker card="7h"]. Zamani bet 300,000 and Nitsche called. The turn was the [poker card="9d"] and this time Zamani bet 2,000,000 and Nitsche called all in. Zamani showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="7d"] for two pair and Nitsche tabled [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"] for a pair and a gutshot straight draw. The river was the [poker card="2h"], completely missing Nitsche and eliminating him in second place and giving Zamani the first six-figure score of his career. Final Table Payouts Martin Zamani - $895,110 Dominik Nitsche - $606,360 Thomas Muehloecker - $404,240 Tom-Aksel Bedell - $331,100 Markus Durnegger - $265,640 Gianluca Speranza - $205,980 Sean Winter - $152,460 Davidi Kitai - $112,040
  4. The 2019 US Poker Open continued on Friday at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas with the conclusion of Event #2: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. American Jordan Cristos entered the final table with a commanding chip lead and proceeded to eliminate each of his final five opponents en route to claiming the $179,200 first-place prize and rocketing to the early lead in the USPO Championship standings. Final Table Results 1. Jordan Cristos - $179,200 2. Manig Loeser - $128,000 3. Martin Zamani - $83,200 4. Adam Hendrix - $64,000 5. Cary Katz - $51,200 6. Sean Winter - $38,400 From the original field of 64, the final six, which included Aussie Million $100,000 Challenge winner Cary Katz and USPO Event #1 runner-up Sean Winter, took their seats on the live-streamed final table to play down to a winner. It didn’t take long for the first elimination of the final table. Roughly 15 minutes into the day, Cristos put his chip lead to work. He opened on the button with the [poker card="kc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7s"] and Winter defended his big blind with the [poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"][poker card="td"][poker card="7h"]. The flop came [poker card="as"][poker card="tc"][poker card="js"]. Winter bet out, prompting a raise from Cristos. Winter made the call with his tournament at risk. The [poker card="qc"] gave both players a straight, but Cristos had a redraw to the spade flush while Winter had a redraw to a full house. The [poker card="qs"] brought the flush in for Cristos and he eliminated Winter in sixth place for $38,400. Winter improved to a two-day USPO total of $195,900 and 180 points. Cristos claimed his second victim 45 minutes later. A short-stacked Katz raised from the button with the [poker card="as"][poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"][poker card="tc"] and was called by Cristos holding the [poker card="th"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3s"]. The flop came [poker card="5c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="kd"] and Cristos bet his flopped two pair enough to put Katz at risk. Katz called with his aces and the turn was the [poker card="6d"] to give Cristos a full house. Katz needed one of the last two aces in the deck to survive but the [poker card="2d"] hit the river instead. The Poker Central founder finished in fifth for $51,200. Minutes later, it was Adam Hendrix’s turn to battle Cristos. Hendrix raised his [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"][poker card="jd"][poker card="6s"] from the small blind only to be re-raised by Cristos from the big blind with the [poker card="8d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="3c"]. Hendrix called with his tournament on the line and with the cards on their backs, the pair saw a flop of [poker card="3d"][poker card="9h"][poker card="kh"]. Cristos flopped a set which held through the [poker card="6h"] turn and the [poker card="ad"] river. Hendrix wrapped Event #2 in fourth place for $64,000. The rapid bustouts continued moments later when Cristos raised his [poker card="ts"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] from the small blind into Martin Zamani’s big blind. Zamani made the call with the [poker card="9s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2c"]and the flop fell [poker card="jc"][poker card="7h"][poker card="7d"], again giving Cristos the best hand with trip sevens. The board was completed with the [poker card="jd"] and [poker card="6h"]. Zamani hit the rail in third place and added $83,200 to his more than $1.3 million in career tournament earnings. Cristos took a healthy chip lead into his heads-up play with Germany’s Manig Loeser. However, during the more than two-hour battle, Loeser wrestled the chip lead away. The pair passed the lead back and forth until Cristos finally managed to get the best of Loeser. The final hand saw Cristos raise holding the [poker card="9s"][poker card="6h"][poker card="kc"][poker card="5c"] and Loeser defended with the [poker card="qd"][poker card="7d"][poker card="tc"][poker card="4c"]. The flop fell [poker card="qc"][poker card="5d"][poker card="7c"] and Loeser checked to Cristos, who put in a bet. Loeser check-raised with his two pair and the pair got all the chips in the middle. The turn was the [poker card="ks"], giving Cristos a bigger two pair, and the [poker card="8s"] river completed the tournament. Loeser was eliminated as the runner-up, settling for second place and collecting $128,000 for his efforts. Cristos wins his first USPO event and the $179,200 first-place prize. This comes on the heels of his 11th-place finish in Event #1, where he earned $27,000. Together, his 2019 USPO earnings have helped propel him to over $2.5 million in career live earnings and the current leader in the quest for the 2019 USPO Championship.

  5. 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.

  6. In the first 50 years of the World Series of Poker just two players from South Africa managed to win bracelets. Early Wednesday morning, Michael 'YesPlease' Clacher became the third to do it. Clacher beat out 1,341 other entries in WSOP Online Event #36 ($1,500 Fifty Stack NLHE) to take home $297,496.30 and the jewellery. He joins Norman Keyser (1989) and Hugh Todd (1990) as bracelet winners from his home country. Clacher started the final table trailing only Olivier 'BigPapyBoss' Rebello in chips. Rebello got things started not long after the final table began. Jose 'Machenzzio' Davilla moved all in from middle position with [poker card="4c"][poker card="4s"] and Rebello called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="8c"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3d"] flop gave Rebello control and Davilla found no help on the [poker card="tc"] turn nor [poker card="kd"] river and was eliminated in ninth. Three minutes later, Joao Vieira raised to 1,000,000 from middle position and Viktor 'Ryuzaki1' Zsemlye moved all in from the small blind for 5,090,054 and Joao Vieira called. Zsemlye showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"] and Vieira tabled [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"]. Zsemlye could do nothing but watch as the [poker card="3d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="2h"][poker card="kd"][poker card="8d"] run out eliminated him in eighth place. Two of the players at the final table sold action in the GGPoker client and both managed to give their investors a solid return. Rebello raised to 1,050,000 from UTG+1 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"] and Rich 'DadPoker' Dixon, who sold 35% of himself, moved all in from the hijack for 4,735,158 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"] before Martin 'FuTimReilly' Zamani reshoved from the button for 4,983,978 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"] forcing Rebello to fold. Dixon failed to connect with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5h"] flop and was eliminated in seventh when the [poker card="4c"] turn and [poker card="4d"] river completed the board. The other player who sold action was the next to go. Neel 'Neel' Joshi sold 20% of himself at no mark-up and gave his investors a 40-1 return. Action folded to Rebello in the small blind and he moved all in for 15,159,790 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"] and Joshi called all in with [poker card="jh"][poker card="th"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="td"][poker card="8d"] runout couldn't save Joshi from a sixth place finish. Five minutes later Zamani picked up another elimination. Zamani opened to 1,500,000 from the cutoff and Vieira moved all in for 10,215,368 from the small blind before Rodrigo 'PAPAI_PIG' Dos Santos Caprioli moved all in over the top. Zamani folded and Vieira showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="7c"] while Caprioli held [poker card="as"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"] flop move Vieira ahead. The [poker card="4h"] turn was a safe card for Vieira but the [poker card="jd"] river gave Caprioli the pot to send Vieira out in fifth. Zamani was the next player out. First to act, Zamani raised to 4,000,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"] and Caprioli made it 7,200,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="js"]. Zamani responded by moving all in for 12,150,301 and Caprioli called. Neither player was able to make a pair on the [poker card="8c"][poker card="2c"][poker card="2h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="7h"] runout and Zamani was eliminated in fourth when Caprioli's jack kicker played. Clacher picked up his first elimination of the night after 12 minutes of three-handed play. Clacher moved all in from the button for 19,115,720 with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"] and Rebello called for 13,944,804 from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2s"] flop gave Rebello extra outs but the [poker card="5h"] turn gave Clacher a set. The [poker card="ac"] river paired Rebello but it wasn't good enough to save him from a third place result. Heads up play began with the players nearly tied in chips and t,he pair battled for 12 minutes before Clacher ended things. Caprioli raised to 2,000,000 from the button and Clacher called. The flop was [poker card="9c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"] and both players checked. The turn was the [poker card="tc"] and Clached check-called Caprioli's bet of 2,883,200. The river was the [poker card="qc"] and Clacher fired 1,250,000. Caprioli moved all in for 12,087,996 and Clacher called. Caprioli showed [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"] for a missed straight draw while Clacher tabled [poker card="qd"][poker card="4d"] for top and bottom pair to eliminate Caprioli in second place and win his first career bracelet. Final Table Payouts Michael Clacher - $297,496.30 Rodrigo Dos Santos Caprioli - $215,892.45 Olivier Rebello - $156,673.09 Martin Zamani - $113,697.09 Joao Vieira - $82,510.25 Neel Joshi - $59,877.78 Rich Dixon - $43,453.18 Viktor Zsemlye - $31,534.07 Jose Luis Davila - $22,884.32
  7. The 2020 World Series of Poker $1,050 Beat the Pros Bounty Tournament took over 13 hours to complete including a final table that lasted for over three hours. Malikeh Jamali was the last woman standing when it was all said and done, grabbing the first-place prize of $151,127 and $88,053 in bounties for a total of $239,180 to go along with her first World Series of Poker Bracelet. The field was comprised of 2,024 players in total for a total prize pool of $2,024,000. The progressive bounty tournament started with bounties of $250 on everyone’s head that grew with each elimination a player picked up. Players who eliminated designated GGPoker pros also received a ticket into a “Beat the Pros” freeroll tournament. Nine-handed play lasted for nearly 20 minutes before the final table saw its first elimination. Jamali raised to 440,000 from early position with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] and Vadim Stoyanov moved all in from the hijack spot for his last 1,294,041 with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8h"]. The action folded back around to Jamali who called and moved ahead in the hand with top pair when the flop came down [poker card="kh"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2c"]. The [poker card="6d"] on the turn and the [poker card="6s"] on the river brought no help to Stoyanov who was out in ninth place. Just over five minutes later, Elio Fox moved all-in for 1,683,806 from under the gun with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"]. Dylan Linde moved all-in for more with [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"] in the cutoff which prompted folds from the button and the blinds. The [poker card="jh"][poker card="6h"][poker card="3h"] flop gave Linde a flush draw to go with his pair of kings, and the [poker card="5s"] on the turn and [poker card="8h"] on the river eliminated Fox from the tournament in eighth place. The final table went on break after Fox’s elimination and returned to play for about 10 minutes before Peter Chien was eliminated in seventh place. Andre Difelice min-raised from the hijack with [poker card="td"][poker card="8d"] and faced an all-in shove to 1,357,135 from Chien with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"] in the cutoff. The action folded back around to Difelice who was priced in needing only 877,135 more to call into a pot of over 2,400,000. The flop came down [poker card="qc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="6s"] to give Difelice a double-gutter straight draw. Chien faded on the straight on the turn, but the [poker card="jh"] on the river completed Difelice’s straight and sealed Chien’s fate. Six-handed play lasted for over a half-hour before Mike Leah’s stack dwindled down to under two big blinds. Difelice min-raised his button to 560,000 and was called in the small blind by Jamali. Leah had only 128,982 left behind and moved his chips in preflop. Jamali and Difelice went check-check on an [poker card="8h"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2h"] flop and a [poker card="5c"] turn. Jamali bet 560,000 after the [poker card="7h"] fell on the flop and Difelice folded. Leah had made a 10-high flush with the [poker card="th"][poker card="3s"], but Jamali was best with the [poker card="qh"][poker card="td"] to knock Leah out in sixth place. Another half hour passed before the final table’s next elimination. Jamali raised to 704,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9c"] and was called by Martin Zamani in the big blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="7s"]. Both players were happy with the [poker card="9h"][poker card="8d"][poker card="6d"] flop that gave top set to Jamali and an open-ended straight draw to Zamani. Zamani check-raised to 3,744,600 after Jamali bet 583,440 and was met with a 4-bet shove for Zamani’s last 1,389,432. Zamani called and was drawing dead when the [poker card="9s"] fell on the river to give Jamali quad nines. The meaningless [poker card="qs"] on the river ended Zamani’s night in fifth place. Ten minutes later, Leonid Yanovski was first to act and moved all-in for his last 2,612,014 with the [poker card="jh"][poker card="9h"]. Difelice called on the button with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qs"] and the two blinds fold. Yanovski was way behind on an [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"][poker card="3s"] flop that brought a pair and flush draw for Difelice, but he did turn some straight outs with the [poker card="td"] on the turn. The [poker card="7d"] on the river didn’t give Yanvoski the help that he needed and the final table was down to three. Three-handed play went on for about 15 minutes until Difelice moved all-in on the button with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="6c"] and a 4,947,332 stack remaining. Jamali folded in the small blind and Linde snap-called from the big blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="th"][poker card="5c"][poker card="td"][poker card="6s"] board ran out clean for Linde’s kings and knocked Difelice out in third place to set up heads-up play. It took over 40 minutes of heads-up play before a winner was finally decided. Jamali had a roughly 2-to-1 chip advantage when heads up began, but the play went back and forth with both players drawing about even in chips at one point. But Jamali had a convincing 7-to-1 chip advantage when the final hand was dealt. Linde limped in on the button and Jamali checked behind. The flop came [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"][poker card="3c"] and Jamali check-called a 600,000 bet. Jamali check-called again when Linde bet 1,320,000 on the [poker card="5h"] turn. The river [poker card="4h"] completed the board and prompted another check from Jamali which was followed by an all-in shove for Linde’s last 4,441,416. Jamali quickly called and revealed the slow-played [poker card="kd"][poker card="4c"], which was more than enough to defeat Linde’s [poker card="qd"][poker card="3s"] to win the tournament. Final Table Payouts 1. Malikeh Jamali - $239,180 2. Dylan Linde - $147,447 3. Andre Difelice - $114,413 4. Leonid Yanovich - $66,056 5. Martin Zamani - $51,081 6. Mike Leah - $41,892 7. Peter Chien - $40,251 8. Elio Fox - $28,450 9. Vadim Stoyanov - $20,704
