  1. In a career that has spanned more than 12 years, 888poker ambassador Dominik Nitsche has evolved from a small stakes online grinder to one of the most prolific high rollers in the poker world today. The results of his hard work speak for themselves as Nitsche has amassed more than $6.5 million in online earnings and an amazing $18.65 million in live earnings, a total which places him 32nd on the Hendon Mob’s All-Time Money List. Even after so much success, Nitsche continues to grind. A successful week at the online tables helped Nitsche surge 27 spots in the online poker worldwide rankings to #68, one of the biggest moves inside the top-100 for the week. The rise in rankings helped him take over the #1-ranking in Germany and close in on a career-high spot of #60, which he last hit back in 2009. As Nitsche continues to climb the rankings, it makes for a good time to look back at some of the biggest scores in the DTO private poker coach’s history, including his most recent victory which added a major title to his long list of accomplishments. 2019 PokerStars WCOOP Just over a year ago, Nitsche booked the biggest win of his online poker career during the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker when he made a deep run in Event #25-H ($25,000 NLHE, 8-Max, High Roller). The tournament drew 90 entries and generated a prize pool of over $2.2 million fueled by some of the toughest competition the poker world has to offer. Nitsche battled his way to the final table, outlasting the likes of Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen, Tim ‘Tim0thee’ Adams, and Mustapha ‘lasagnaaammm’ Kanit, all of who made the money. In the end, Nitsche ended up falling in fifth place walking away with $188,139. Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov ended up winning the event for more than $527,000. 2017 PokerStars SCOOP Two-and-a-half years prior to his big risk, big reward run in the 2019 WCOOP, Nitsche entered another high roller looking to take home a massive score. The field size in the 2017 Spring Championship of Online Poker Event #15-M ($2,100 NLHE, 8-Max, High Roller) was a good deal larger as 772 entries drove the prize pool to just over $1.5 million. Again, Nitsche made a deep run to the final table where he battled the impressive online poker talent of Ami ‘UhhMee’ Barer and former #1-ranked Calvin ‘Cal42688’ Anderson. Nitsche finished in fourth place that day but locked up a massive $115,800 score for his efforts. $5K High Roller One of the very first high roller tournaments in 2018 took place on January 3 that year and featured a who’s who of top online poker talent. The $5,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller was littered with notable screen names that finished in the money that day. Ludovic ‘ludovi333’ Geilich, Mike ‘telks’ Telker, Chris ‘Apotheosis92’ Kruk, and Stephen ‘stevie444’ Chidwick all picked up huge scores that day. Nitsche surpassed all of them though and notched himself a podium finish with a third-place score of $82,445 which helped him get the year off to a good start. In the end, Damian ‘pampa27’ Salas bested ‘DEX888’ for the win and the $139K first-place prize. 2020 PokerStars SCOOP It seems that Nitsche only gets better with age as two of his top 5 all-time scores were won in 2020. The first of which took place on May 22 in the 2020 PokerStars SCOOP when Nitsche fired in the $500,000 guaranteed Event #87-H ($530 NLHE). The field swelled to 956 entries but Nitsche outlasted every single one of them, booking the win and adding the $82,365 first-place prize to what was, at that time, $5.8 million in online earnings. 2020 EPT Online Cup Nitsche’s latest major online score proves that while he may be known for crushing the small field, nosebleed buy-in tournaments he still has what it takes to work his way through a massive field MTT and get the win. On November 14, just over a week ago, Nitsche nabbed himself a title in PokerStars’ first-ever EPT Online series when he outlasted the massive field of 2,833 runners and took down EPT Online Event #14 ($215 NLHE, EPT Online Cup) for $82,093. Along with the major online title, Nitsche picked up 752.73 PLB points which sent him sailing past Germany’s ‘nilsef’ in the rankings and has positioned himself to reach ranking heights he hasn’t seen in over a decade. Since taking home the gold in the EPT Online event, Nitsche continues to add to his PLB point total, grabbing another 169.49 points with his runner-up finish in the $215 Fast Friday just last week. If Nitsche continues to grind the kind of volume he’s been putting in as of late, he’s a favorite to hit a new career-high ranking by the end of the year.

  2. There was a major shakeup in the PocketFives Rankingsthis week thanks to thousands of PLB Points being awarded during the final weekend of the PokerStarsSpring Championship of Online Poker. However, if you're a fan of Nicolas PokerKaiser Fierro (pictured), you can breathe a sigh of relief, as he's still our top-ranked player at 7,817 PLB Points. Second place this week belongs to Mustapha lasagnaaammmKanit, who won the high-stakes SCOOP Main Eventfor $1.3 million. Kanit was outside of the top 100 in the Rankings when the week began, but received 2,634 PLB Points for his efforts in the Main Event. Kanit fittingly won the FTOPS Main Eventfor $239,000 in March and took down the EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller earlier in May for $1 million. Yes, he's on fire. We told you there was a major upheaval and we weren't kidding. Take Anton AnteSvante Wigg, for example, who moved up from #20 to #3 thanks to a win in the Sunday 500 over the weekend for $90,000 and 723 PLB Points. The same day, he made the final two tables of a SCOOP Wrap-Up event for $10,000 and final tabled a SCOOP event the day before for the same amount. This is the highest Wigg has ever been in the PocketFives Rankings. Say hello to hellohellohello (pictured), your new fourth ranked player worldwide. The Russian moved up 24 spots this week to his highest position ever thanks to four wins in the last seven days as well as a final table in the high-stakes SCOOP Main Event for a solid $104,000. He has $2.1 million in career online tournament winnings. Bernardo bedias Dias moved up from #14 to #5, his highest career ranking, after winning three tournaments on PokerStars on May 21. Two days later, he final tabled a SCOOP PLO contest for $19,000. Dias is the top-ranked Brazilian PocketFiver out of almost 2,000 who have PLB scores. Greece's Apostolis Bechrakis, known on PocketFives as apostolis20, entered the top 100 worldwide at #14 this week, his best showing ever, after winning the low-stakes SCOOP Main Event for $221,000. That score was worth 1,488 PLB Points after the prize pool passed $2.2 million. Finally this week, we wanted to talk about Australia's Martin Tiny_molester Kozlov, who moved up from #90 to #17. He final tabled a SCOOP Wrap-Up event for $101,000 and cashed in the high-stakes Main Event the same day. He's a few thousand dollars shy of hitting $2 million for his career. As you can see, only one member of last week's top five, Fierro, remained in the top five this week. Both PocketFivers who won SCOOP Main Events rocketed into the top 15 in the world. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. PokerKaiser- 7,817 points 2. lasagnaaammm(pictured) - 7,430 points 3. AnteSvante- 7,396 points 4. hellohellohello- 7,239 points 5. bedias- 7,123 points 6. Romeopro - 6,887 points 7. StrungOut1 - 6,871 points 8. veeea - 6,764 points 9. norfair18 - 6,750 points 10. joaomathias - 6,749 points Congrats to all of our ranked players! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  3. Over the weekend, Mustapha Kanit (pictured, image courtesy EPT), who is known on PocketFives as lasagnaaammm, won the EPT Grand Final €50K Super High Roller, a one-day event, and banked €936,500. The Italian barreled through a 54-man field, which had 12 reentries and a prize pool of €3.2 million. Nine players made the money, including several brand name PocketFives members like former #1 ranked Fedor CrownUpGuyHolz, who can currently be found at #6 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings. Three of the top five finishers were from Germany: 1. Mustapha lasagnaaammmKanit (Italy): €936,500 2. Mike SirWatts Watson (Canada): €672,300 3. Martin Finger (Germany): €437,000 4. Fedor CrownUpGuyHolz (Germany): €329,800 5. Fabian Quoss (Germany): €256,100 6. Andrei Streltsou (Belarus): €198,500 7. Mark Teltscher (UK): €156,900 8. Ivan Luca (Argentina): €121,700 9. Scott Seiver (USA): €92,860 The entire Super High Roller took 13 hours to finish and Kanit edged out fellow PocketFiver Mike SirWattsWatson (pictured). He now has about $4 million in live tournament winnings, according to the Hendon Mob. Kanit made a pair of final tables at last year's WSOP in Las Vegas and bubbled a third, just a few months after final tabling the 2014 PCA Super High Roller for $492,000. PocketFives has tracked another $2.8 million in online MTT winnings for Kanit, including an FTOPS Main Event title in March for $239,000. He has multiple WCOOP final tables to his credit, along with WCOOP, SCOOP, and FTOPS titles. He gleefully Tweeted when all was said and done, "Wonn the super HR montecarlo Like a boss!!! Sballiatoooooo!!!" Congrats to Kanit on his big EPT title! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.
  4. Over the weekend, the 28th Full Tilt Online Poker Series, or FTOPS, wrapped up. The FTOPS XXVIII Main Event drew 1,260 entrants, creating a prize pool of almost $1.2 million, which lapped the $1 million guarantee. In the end, United Kingdom's Mustapha lasagnaaammm Kanit took it down for $239,000. Scarily, the $239,000 score is just the third largest we've logged for Kanit, who finished third in a WCOOP High Roller last September for almost $400,000 officially, his largest online score to date. Last May, he won a SCOOP $2,100 Turbo Re-Entry event for $376,000 officially and has been a force to be reckoned with in larger tournament series. In fact, his five largest career scores stem from SCOOP, WCOOP, and FTOPS events. Here's how the FTOPS Main Event final table cashed out: 1. potta_x_potta - $239,400 (lasagnaaammm) 2. dunphi - $159,440 3. BooBoo825 - $113,715 (Shanks) 4. Forggi - $84,987 5. dougiedan678 - $63,441 (dougiedan678) 6. YeujZat - $46,683 7. Cejakas14 - $34,713 8. hteraaj2001 - $25,137 (jareth3542) 9. paradoxpoker - $17,955 (overthetop43) This is Kanit's first FTOPS win and he now has victories in WCOOP, SCOOP, and FTOPS tournaments. He took down the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy two years ago, won the Sunday 500 in December, and was ranked as high as #9 worldwide on PocketFives last year. Even with all of his success online, Kanit has managed to score big in the live world as well. He is ranked #32 on GPI and took fourth in a PCA High Roller event in 2014 for $492,000. A couple of weeks later, he won preliminary event at the Aussie Millions for another $173,000. The UK player has almost $6 million in combined live and online tournament winnings, according to PocketFives and the Hendon Mob. Congrats to Kanit, who has been a member of PocketFives since 2013, on his FTOPS Main Event win. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  5. Overnight, Mustapha lasagnaaammmKanit (pictured) hit the jackpot in the high-stakes Main Event of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker, taking the tournament down outright for $1.3 million. It was his second SCOOP title and marked the sixth largest online cash ever by a member of PocketFives. The $10,000 buy-in tournament drew almost 700 entrants. Kanit was in sixth place by the time the final eight rolled around and, if the chip deficit weren't enough, he was facing other heavy-hitters like Shaun shaundeebDeeb, Christian eisenhower1Jeppsson, and Emil Maroonlime Patel. Kanit took Deeb out in seventh place in a race with A-Q suited against 9-9. Kanit spiked an ace on the flop to pull ahead and hit a queen on the river for good measure to send Deeb packing. Jeppsson followed Deeb out the door in sixth in the same fashion, losing a race with K-J against 2-2. While this author was perusing Twitter on Monday night, he ran across a Tweet from Scott Seiver that said, "For anyone not watching, this SCOOP $10k FT is the most entertaining final table I have ever watched." The lead kept changing hands and, appropriately, the nail-biter ended in a very unique way. Kanit was up 3:1 in chips over Patel (pictured) when heads-up play began and, 10 hands later, Patel shoved on a board reading J-Q-9-Q-10 and tabled J-10 for two pair. Kanit, however, rolled over pocket queens for quads and won $1.3 million. One of our favorite comments on Twitter came from Jordan inblueCristos, who wrote, "Is @Mustacchione a real person? Like does he have blood and a brain and stuff? Or machine?" Here's how the SCOOP High final table shook out: 1. Mustapha "lasagnaaammm" Kanit (United Kingdom): $1,304,720 2. Emil "Maroonlime" Patel (Finland): $950,780 3. KumariOy (Russia): $700,940 4. I am Bobbie (Belarus): $527,440 5. prrrak4783 (Sweden): $370,596 6. Christian "eisenhower1" Jeppsson (Sweden): $294,950 7. Shaun "shaundeeb" Deeb (Mexico): $225,550 8. albeainy (Lebanon): $156,150 9. hello_totti (Russia): $104,100 Kanit has been on an absolute tear as of late. He won the FTOPS Main Event in Marchfor $239,000 and took down the Sunday 500 last December for $65,000. Earlier this month, Kanit won the EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller for $1 million.

  6. Last month, the FTOPS Main Event on Full Tilt Pokerattracted a field of 2,160 entrants and had a prize pool that nearly topped $1.2 million. Your winner: PocketFiver Mustapha Kanit (pictured), who is known as lasagnaaammm. "I'm feeling really good," Kanit told PocketFives in an exclusive interview. "I always go deep in the FTOPS Main Event too. I have gotten to the last four tables three times in the last few years. I love the structure and it has a good field." A chop was briefly discussed, but Kanit asked for more than ICM heads-up and Full Tilt player dunphiturned it down. Instead, the pair played on and Kanit banked $239,000 for the win. There were five PocketFives members at the final table of the FTOPS Main Event. "Shanks played really well and was the best one at the final table. I got lucky against him and he played really well. It was a good final table with a lot of good players," he told us of the final nine. Shanks ultimately came in third place for a healthy $113,000. Kanit will use a portion of his winnings for EPT Monte Carlo and the PokerStars SCOOP. He's historically done well in larger tournament series, as his three largest tracked scores to date have been a $392,000 haul in a WCOOP High Roller, a SCOOP win for $376,000, and his FTOPS Main Event jersey. In fact, his five largest scores are all from tournament series and total almost $1.5 million collectively. "I love to play the big series," Kanit said. "They are amazing. It's a really nice challenge and you have to be focused for 20 days playing against the best. It's the time I enjoy the most during the year and there is a lot of action and big fields. I'm always in the right mode before a big online series because I know it's the right time to play my best and enjoy some online MTTs." Kanit, who has almost $3 million in tracked scores, doesn't have a set schedule when he enters a session. Instead, he adapts: "I like to be really focused when I get deep in something, so I always change my schedule during a session. I play all of the No Limit Hold'em events during big tournament series and all of the Sunday Majors." Kanit plays as potta_x_potta on Full Tilt and can be found at #90 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings after peaking at #9 last year. He is ranked #35 on GPI. Did we mention Kanit has $2.6 million in live cashes, according to the Hendon Mob? He does. Kanit won the IPT Nova Gorica Main Event four years ago for $276,000 and followed that up later that year with a final table at the Partouche Poker Tour's stop in Cannes for $259,000. His largest live score to date came with a fourth place finish in a PCA High Roller Event in 2014 for almost a half-million dollars. He has seven live scores of over $100,000. We'll end this article with some words of advice from Kanit, who said, "Play focused, study your opponents, and see against whom you can take some marginal spots and against whom it is better to back away. Being short in a tournament is normal, so if you have 10 to 15 big blinds, don't think it's over, but keep playing your best. Eat good food and read too!"

  7. Friday evening in Berlin, Jonathan Duhamel put himself into elite territory when he beat David Kitai heads-up to win the €25,600 High Roller event at WSOP Europe to win €554,395 ($609,934 US) and his third WSOP bracelet. With the win Duhamel, who won the WSOP Main Event in 2010, became the first Main Event champion of the November Nine era to win a third bracelet. Duhamel's second bracelet came in July when he won the High Roller for One Drop. “It feels even better than the second one,” Duhamel said. “I felt like this tournament was really tough. It’s one of the toughest I’ve played in my life. To be able to win it, it means everything.” The last WSOP Main Event champion to win more than two bracelets was Chris Ferguson. The six-handed final table, which will be broadcast on ESPN later this year, took just over 6 1/2 hours to complete. When play began Italian poker pro Mustapha Kanit had an overwhelming chip lead but it was Duhamel who made the first move. Just after two hours into the day Duhamel eliminated Fedor Holz in sixth place. Holz, shortstacked for most of the day, raised to 170,000 and Duhamel moved all-in. Holz called and table Ts 9h while Duhamel was ahead with Ad 7s. The flop came Jh 7d 2d adding a gutshot straight draw to Holz's possibilities. The turne was the 7c leaving only the straight draw for Holz. The 5h missed and the young German out in sixth place. Kanit then put his big stack to work. He eliminated the only other German player at the final table, Christoph Vogelsong, in fifth and then Sam Chartier in fourth. With just three players remaining, Kanit had a slight chip lead over Kitai and Duhamel and it all went downhill from there for the Belgian pro. Kanit lost over half of his stack to Kitai on a board showing 9h 7h 3d Qd Jc when he couldn't best Kitai's 9d 8s. And then Duhamel finished the job when he called Kanit's preflop shove. Kanit, with Qh 5s, had live cards against Duhamel's Ac Jd. The flop, turn and river all missed Kanit, leaving Duhamel and Kitai to play heads-up. Duhamel had a slight chip lead over Kitai when heads-up play began and applied pressure throughout the early stages of heads-up play. Down to just over Kitai did double-up at one point but it was nothing more than a momentary blip for Duhamel. On the final hand of the night Kitai moved all-in from the button with Jh 7s and Duhamel called with 7c 7h. The As Ks 2s flop gave Kitai some outs but the 8h turn and 7d river weren't amongst them to give Duhamel the pot, the bracelet and the fourth biggest score of his career. Final Table Payouts Jonathan Duhamel - €554,395 Davidi Kitai - €342,620 Mustapha Kanit - €227,145 Sam Chartier - €160,775 Christoph Vogelsang - €121,020 Fedor Holz - €96,625 Timothy Adams - €81,420

  10. [caption width="640"] Mustapha Kanit won the EPT Dublin €25,000 High Roller (Photo courtesy PokerStars/Neil Stoddart)[/caption] In the nine years since the European Poker Tour was last in Dublin, Ireland the Tour has changed quite a bit. One of the biggest changes is the addition of High Roller events to the stop in each EPT city. Sunday night in Dublin, Mustapha Kanit put on a show for the ages in winning the €25K High Roller for €501,640 ($563,172 US). Kanit, who is Italy's all-time leading money earner, now has over $6 million US in lifetime earnings. The €25,000 buy-in event, which attracted 70 entries, was the biggest buy-in event in the history of Irish poker. Kanit came to the final table with the chip lead and while he did briefly relinquish that lead to Chance Kornuth in heads-up play, the Italian poker pro basically went wire-to-wire for the win. Kornuth picked up the first elimination on just the second hand of play Sunday. From UTG Kornuth moved all in for 1,290,000 and a shortstacked Ivan Luca called from the button. Kornuth showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] while Luca had [poker card="jh"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="th"] run out didn’t help Luca and he was out in eighth. On the very next hand Nick Petrangelo found himself on the way out of the tournament. Action folded to Petrangelo in the small blind and he moved all in for 480,000. Jeff Rossiter called from the big blind and tabled [poker card="qh"][poker card="8s"], behind Petrangelo’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="7d"] flop gave Rossiter second pair but left Petrangelo drawing to a bigger pair or broadway. the [poker card="6d"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river were bricks though and Petrangelo was out in seventh. While the first two eliminations took no time at all, it was 90 minutes of play before another player left the final table. Again it was a blind-vs-blind confrontation that lead to the bustout. Anton Bertilsson moved all in from the small blind and Keith Johnson called from the big. Bertilsson turned over [poker card="6s"][poker card="6d"] and Johnson, who was short when the hand began, needed help with [poker card="as"][poker card="5h"]. The board ran out [poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="jh"] leaving Bertilsson in front and sending Johnson out in sixth place. An hour later Kanit picked up his first elimination of the day. Kanit raised to 215,000 and Rossiter moved all in behind him. Kanit called and found himself in a dominating position with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] to the [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"] of Rossiter. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop kept Kanit in the lead but the [poker card="7h"] gave Rossiter back door flush outs. The river however was the [poker card="as"] and Rossiter was eliminated in fifth. Kanit held 54% of the chips in play with just four players remaining and pushed that advantage to as high as 70%. It took another blind-vs-blind confrontation to get down to three players. Kornuth shoved from the small blind and Bertilsson called off the rest of his stack from the big blind. Kornuth tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="6d"] and Bertilsson showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="td"]. Bertilsson found no traction on the [poker card="6c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="8d"] board and was out in fourth. A three-way all in so no player bust out and left Kanit in the lead. Just a few minutes later Charlie Carrel found himself on the way out and Kanit was set for a heads-up battle with Kornuth. Again, it was blind-vs-blind. Kanit limped from the small blind, Carrel move all in from the big and Kanit quickly called. Carrel showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] while Kanit was ahead with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"]. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4s"] to eliminate Carrel. Heads-up play last a little over two hours with Kornuth taking the lead for a little less than 20 minutes of play. Once Kanit had it back, he didn’t relinquish it. On the final hand of the night Kornuth opened to 500,000 and Kanit responded by moving all in. Kornuth took some time but eventually called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="th"]. Kanit was ahead with [poker card="3h"][poker card="3s"]. The board ran out [poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="jd"] giving Kanit his first win of 2016. Final Table Payouts Mustapha Kanit - €501,640 Chance Kornuth - €360,150 Charlie Carrel - €234,100 Anton Bertilsson - €176,640 Jeff Rossiter - €137,200 Keith Johnson - €106,330 Nick Petrangelo - €84,040 Ivan Luca - €65,170
  11. [caption width="640"] Mustapha Kanit was the first player selected in the Global Poker League draft[/caption] Mustapha Kanit is one helluva poker player. As of Thursday afternoon, he’s also the answer to a future trivia question. Who was the first player selected to play in the Global Poker League? Kanit went first overall to the Rome Emperors on Thursday as the GPL held their inaugural draft at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Kanit was one of 48 players chosen by the 12 GPL team managers on Thursday. The second overall pick went to the Montreal Nationals, managed by Marc-Andre Ladouceur. While most observers expected the Nationals to draft fellow French-Canadian Jonathan Duhamel, Ladouceur took a different approach and instead chose Mike McDonald. Other players chosen in the first round include Jason Mercier, Phil Galfond and Fedor Holz. Mercier was one of few draftees in attendance and was quick to thank his new manager, Bryn Kenney, and the GPL. “Being a professional poker player is a great honor and we need to be great ambassadors to the game and this is a great opportunity for all of us,” said Mercier. Complete First Round Selections Rome Emperors: Mustapha Kanit Montreal Nationals: Mike McDonald New York Rounders: Jason Mercier San Francisco Rush: Phil Galfond Las Vegas Moneymakers: Anthony Zinno Sao Paulo Metropolitans: Darren Elias London Royals: Igor Kurganov Moscow Wolverines: Dzmitry Urbanovich L.A. Sunset: Fedor Holz Berlin Bears: Brian Rast Paris Aviators: Bertrand Grospellier Hong Kong Stars: Weiyi Zhang The second round began with Hong Kong Stars manager Celina Lin drafting Hong Kong pro Raiden Kan. All four of Lin’s picks were players with strong ties to the Chinese or Hong Kong poker community. While managers were encouraged to draft players with connections to their city, Lin was the only manager to do so. The London Royals drafted Vanessa Selbst 18th overall and 2014 WSOP Main Event champion Martin Jacobson went 23rd overall to the Nationals. The Emperors closed the round by drafting another Italian, Dario Sammartino. Complete Second Round Selections Hong Kong Stars: Raiden Kan Paris Aviators: Davidi Kitai Berlin Bears: Sorel Mizzi L.A. Sunset: Olivier Busquet Moscow Wolverines: Vladimir Troyanovskiy London Royals: Vanessa Selbst Sao Paulo Metropolitans: Byron Kaverman Las Vegas Moneymakers: Jonathan Duhamel San Francisco Rush: Anthony Gregg New York Rounders: Thomas Marchese Montreal Nationals: Martin Jacobson Rome Emperors: Dario Sammartino After drafting Italian pros with his first two picks, Pescatori went a different direction with the first pick of the third round. Pescatori added Canadian pro Timothy Adams to his roster. Rounders manager Bryn Kenney was able to add one of his good friends to his team with the 27th overall pick, Kevin MacPhee. Online poker’s all-time leading money winner, Chris Moorman, also heard his name called in the third round. London Royals manager Liv Boeree drafted Moorman 31st overall. Complete Third Round Selections Rome Emperors: Timothy Adams Montreal Nationals: Pascal Lafrancois New York Rounders: Kevin MacPhee San Francisco Rush: Kitty Kuo Las Vegas Moneymakers: Jake Cody Sao Paulo Metropolitans: Thiago Nishijima London Royals: Chris Moorman Moscow Wolverines: Andrey Pateychuk L.A. Sunset: Eugene Katchalov Berlin Bears: Dominik Nitsche Paris Aviators: George Danzer Hong Kong Stars: Dong Guo The fourth and final round started with a quick change in the formalities. Managers were originally told they could defer their fourth pick and instead be given an extra Wildcard selection to use in Season 1. After a meeting with all managers, it was determined that all teams would draft a fourth player to fill out their initial roster. After Lin finished her team by drafting Bryan Huang, the Paris Aviators took Canadian Mike Leah and the Berlin Bears drafted Jeff Gross. Other big names added to teams in the fourth round include Chance Kornuth, Justin Bonomo, Joao Pires Simao and Jonathan Little. Complete Fourth Round Selections Hong Kong Stars: Bryan Huang Paris Aviators: Mike Leah Berlin Bears: Jeff Gross L.A. Sunset: Chance Kornuth Moscow Wolverines: Sergey Lebedev London Royals: Justin Bonomo Sao Paulo Metropolitans: Joao Pires Simao Las Vegas Moneymakers: Jonathan Little San Francisco Rush: Anton Wigg New York Rounders: Jason Wheeler Montreal Nationals: Xuan Liu Rome Emperors: Walter Treccarichi
  12. [caption width="640"] Dan Colman defeated a loaded final table to win the Triton Super High Roller Series Six Max event. (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Dan Colman collected his third six-figure cash of 2017 by taking down the HKD$ 250,000 Triton Super High Roller Series Six Max Event on Saturday, beating a final table that included 2016 Super High Roller Bowl champion Rainer Kempe, Erik Seidel, Mustapha Kanit, and Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov. The first elimination of the final table was Italy’s Kanit. With less than 10 big blinds in front of him, Kanit shoved from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"] and Sergio Aido called on Kanit’s left with [poker card="qs"][poker card="8h"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3d"] flop was safe for Kanit as was the [poker card="3c"] turn. The [poker card="qc"] river, however, gave Aido a pair and resulted in Kanit’s exit. Kuznetsov followed Kanit out the door over the course of two hands. Over two hours after Kanit’s bust out, Aido opened for a raise and got two callers in Kuznetsov and Seidel out of the blinds. The trio checked the [poker card="ac"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7c"] the flop and Kuznetsov bet 38,000 on the [poker card="3h"] turn. Seidel raised to 83,000 and Aido folded. Kuznetsov found a call and the [poker card="js"] hit the river. Seidel moved all in for 92,000 and Kuznetsov called to see Seidel reveal [poker card="3c"][poker card="3s"] for a turned set. Down to his last nine big blinds, Kuznetsov shoved the next hand from the button with [poker card="kd"][poker card="2d"]. Kempe called with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"] out of the big blind and held to eliminated Kuznetsov. Sergio Aido exited in fourth place at the hands of Colman roughly an hour into four-handed play. Aido moved all in for 115,000 from the small blind with [poker card="7h"][poker card="6d"] and was looked up by Colman with [poker card="kd"][poker card="7d"]. The board ran true for Colman and Aido exited with another high roller score in 2017. With roughly 50 big blinds in play, there was little margin for error in three-handed play. Despite getting all of the chips in with the best out of it, Kempe couldn’t out run Colman and was the third place finisher. With blinds of 20,000/40,000, Kempe opened for 90,000 from the button and Colman jammed out of the small blind to put Kempe at risk. Kempe called for his last 350,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] and was in great shape to double up against the [poker card="ac"][poker card="6c"] of Colman. The [poker card="7d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4c"] flop gave Colman a pair along with a backdoor flush draw. The [poker card="6s"] turn put Colman firmly ahead and Kempe hit the rail after missing on the river. Heads up play went back and forth but Colman was able to finish Seidel off to claim victory. Seidel had a little under 1,000,000 in front of him and got all in with [poker card="ad"][poker card="6s"]. Colman had Seidel dominated with [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] and put the championship on ice with the [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"][poker card="jc"] flop. Colman earned HKD$ 3,641,600 ($469,203 US) for his run and will be gunning for his second title of this week in the HK$ 1,000,000 Main Event which begins Sunday. Final Table Payouts Dan Colman - HKD$ 3,641,600 Erik Seidel - HKD$ 2,326,000 Rainer Kempe - HKD$ 1,466,000 Sergio Aido - HKD$ 1,011,000 Timofey Kuznetsov - HKD$ 708,000 Mustapha Kanit - HKD$ 556,000
  13. Uruguay's 'pasula09' battled through a 10,232 field in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million to turn $109 into $106,859. The guarantee was hit after the prize pool was set at $1,023,200, with a place at the final table of nine worth $7,632. After the field had been cut to just the final three, Brazil's José 'neto gol' Queiroz da Costa Neto picked up his second Sunday Million bronze medal three years after his first, and this time collected $55,238. The final battle saw former SCOOP champion Fedor 'ftruncev' Truntsev just missed out on adding another accolade to his poker CV, and departed as runner-up for $76,826, with 'pasula09' crowned the champion.

'SchelampigaUhu' won $21,600 after beating Thomas 'onehundredeyes' Mühlöcker heads-up in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller DeepStack. The prize pool just crept over the $75,000 guarantee after 76 entries took to the tables, and 'mogvision' took away $10,260 in third-place, paving the way for 'SchelampigaUhu' to win the final battle, and eliminating Mühlöcker into second-place for $14,820. Over on GGPoker, 'LaurisL91' and 'ImLividBuddy' both added Sunday Blade $5k titles to their names. Both players came through 32 player-fields to claim their respective wins and were each awarded with a top prize worth $64,840.

The partypoker MILLION had a $1,218,366 prize pool and GGPoker beat the GG Masters guarantee for the first time since moving to a $500,000 guarantee four weeks ago. While Alex Foxen was largely focused on finishing up the Poker Masters, he still managed to pick up a massive score in a $5,200 Powerfest event. Foxen beat former #1-ranked Yuri Dzivielevski heads-up to top the 256-entry field in the Powerfest $5,200 Big Game to win $239,413.42. Dzivielevski earned $173,777.16 and third-place finisher Jordi Urlings also picked up a six-figure score, earning $123,874.93.

Over on PokerStars, the Sunday Million and a special edition $11 Sunday Storm that drew 128,753 entries, both need a second day to determine a champion. The $1,050 High Roller Club Sunday Warm-Up had 224 total entries with Mustapha 'lasagnaaammm' Kanit taking it down for $39,025.49. Runner-up 'papan9_p$' banked $37,901.91 and 'hayroller' took the last spot on the podium for $25,234.85.
