  1. [caption width="640"] XL Eclipse provided an action packed Monday at 888poker[/caption] Monday brought with it a new slate of XL Eclipse tournaments over at 888poker. The online site sought to kick off the work week with $175,000 worth of guarantees spread out over 13 events, including the first Pot Limit Omaha offerings on the XL Eclipse schedule. Online players flocked to the 888poker tables, helping the series, once again, exceed their posted guarantees for the day by well over $50,000. All done, there was roughly $239,000 awarded from the XL Eclipse prize pools. 888poker ambassador Parker 'tonkaaaa' Talbot almost became the first two-time XL Eclipse winner. Talbot made a run at the top spot while of Event #27 ($109 $15,000 Tornado No Limit Hold'em). In the end though, Talbot was denied in a heads-up battle with the current #1 ranked player in the Ukraine, Roman 'Romeopro33' Romanovsky. Talbot had to settle for a second place finish and $3,844 to go along with his victory Sunday. Online legend Chris 'moorman1' Moorman also made a deep run in the event, eventually finishing in 12th. The largest tournament of the day, Event #20 ($160 $20,000 Crocodile No Limit Hold'em), was on pace to offer the largest payout of the day, having exceeded its guarantee by over $10,000. A three-way deal at the final table between 'harrrmonica', 'germaxii' and the eventual winner 'Magicooo22' flattened out the payouts at the top. Even with the deal, longtime online grinder 'Magicooo22' still walked with over $5,000, good for one of the four largest payouts of the day. Also, of note, Nicolas 'PKaiser' Fierro – the current #10-ranked online poker player in the PocketFives.com worldwide rankings – walked away with a victory in Event #17 ($109 $15,000 Lightning 6-Max) as did fellow PocketFivers Kevin 'kevlar1991' Frame and 'pokerdave128'.

  2. 888poker LIVE’s 12-day festival in Barcelona, Spain came to a conclusion on Monday when Romania’s Adrian Costin Constantin closed out a win in the Main Event for €114,025 and the title of 888poker LIVE Barcelona Champion. For nearly two weeks, the on-the-felt action was fast-paced at Casino Barcelona. Big crowds and 888poker superstars like Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot, Sofia Lovgren and Vivian Saliba were all on hand. The 2018 PCA Main Event winner Maria Lampropulos even took down the €2,200 High Roller in the middle of the week for €63,000. After the 13 of the prelims played out to their respective winners all eyes were focused on the final table of the €1,100 Main Event and its €500,000 guarantee. Players flocked to the tournament with 709 total entries total spanning three starting days. The result generated a prize pool that annihilated the guarantee. A total of €709,000 were up for grabs with a six-figure first place prize promised to the winner. When the final nine drew for seats at the final table, Spain’s Joel Isla held a fairly commanding chip lead with Constantin firmly second in chips. Isla got busy early, taking out Poland’s Tomasz Aleksander Chmiel when Chmiel’s pocket eights jammed into Isla’s two kings. Chimel walked with €9,530 for ninth place, adding to this over $200,000 of lifetime poker earnings. As Isla continued to roll, building a massive chip lead, Constantin got busy breaking down the final table as well. Sirgiu Sirbu from Romania shoved his short stack with a suited [poker card="ac"][poker card="4c"] into the [poker card="kd"][poker card="jd"] of Constantin. After a clean flop, the [poker card="js"] dropped on the turn, leaving Sirbu with three outs. The blank river sent Sirbu to the payout desk to collect €12,250 for eighth place. Right behind Sirbu came the elimination of Italy’s Luigi Andrea Shehadeh. Shehadeh, who took this very event down one year ago, faced a small blind shove from Isla. He made the call holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="5s"] but Isla wasn’t as light as he’d hoped. Isla tabled the [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"] and had the former champ dominated. The board ran out with neither players able to connect and Isla added to his chip surge. Shehadeh added €16,350 to his bankroll for seventh. Constantin claimed another victim when he picked off the short stack shove with [poker card="as"][poker card="jh"] of Oscar Casado Diaz. Constantin held [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"] and although both paired their ace on the river, kickers played. The local Spaniard Diaz collected €22,150 for his sixth-place efforts. After a short break, the final five returned to play down to a winner. Isla, who had been holding a commanding chip lead all day, finally lost a big pot when Manuel Navarro Perez doubled through him. The action heated up and after that, the chip stacks evened out making it anybody’s tournament to win. Italy’s Corrado Martinelli fell in fifth for €27,200 and quickly following him out of the tournament was Romania’s Cosmic Rusu. Russ collected €38,200 for what is essentially his only real recorded cash to date. Then the final three players began to mix it up. Constantin fell into third after Perez, once again, found a double. Isla and Perez demonstrated a willingness to gamble when they played for one of the biggest pots of the tournament. Perez opened with [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"] which invited Isla to three-bet with [poker card="9s"][poker card="9d"]. Perez put in a four-bet, Isla jammed, Perez tank called and the next thing you know - the pair are flipping for a massive chip lead. The board ran out all baby cards, giving Isla back his chip lead and putting Perez back at the bottom of the chip counts. Perez was out of the tournament 10 minutes later for €55,800. Unable to come to a deal during a break, began heads-up play with Isla holding a 3:1 chip lead. Constantin battled back and the passed chips, and the lead, back and forth for over an hour. Eventually, Constantin had Isla on the ropes with a 4:1 chip lead. However, during what would be the last break, the pair agreed to a deal. Both of them would walk with €114,025 and play for the trophy. The pair sat back down at the table and roughly 15 minutes later, Constantin’s shut the door on Isla and earned the right to be called 2018 888poker Barcelona Main Event Champion in a career-defining victory. 888poker LIVE can be seen around the halls of the the Rio in Las Vegas as an official sponsor of the World Series of Poker. The branded $888 Crazy Eights tournament is set to take flight on June 30.
  3. After a ‘no bracelet’ day on Monday, we saw two new bracelet winners on Tuesday at the 2018 World Series of Poker. One of them picked up his first piece of WSOP jewellery, while the other claimed his third, plus over a million bucks to go with it. Meanwhile, the MONSTER STACK played down to 20, the $10K Limit Championship got down to 14, and the $3K NLHE kicked off for Day 1. Here’s all the news from June 26. Razz Specialist Jay Kwon Wins First Bracelet and $125,431 Coming into the final table fifth in chips, and with some stiff competition from the likes of start-of-day chip leader Kevin Iacofano, Adam ‘adamyid’ Owen, and Dzmitry ‘Colisea’ Urbanovich, meant Jay Kwon had his work cut out for him in Event #46: $1,500 Razz. Thing is though, Kwon considers himself a Razz specialist, and with two prior cashes in WSOP Razz events, he’s now a bracelet winner in the format. "Razz is like my favorite game, and I feel like it's an underappreciated game and people get frustrated at it," Kwon said after his victory. "But I love the game and yeah, this means more to me than a lot of tournaments. I started playing it and it was really interesting, so I kind of got into it and just started playing it a lot. I'm somewhat of a Razz specialist.” His ability in the game was on display today, defeating the aforementioned tough final table. Owen bowed out in third, meaning Kwon was up against Urbanovich heads-up. The Polish wunderkind built a 2.5:1 chip lead at one point, but Kwon was able to fight back and close it out. Final Table Results: Jay Kwon - $125,431 Dzmitry Urbanovich - $77,526 Adam Owen - $52,536 Michael McKenna - $36,324 Kevin Iacofano - $25,637 Thomas Taylor - $18,477 Jeff Mitseff - $13,605 Jeanne David - $10,240 Kyle Montgomery - $7,881 Loren Klein Wins Bracelet #3 in $10K PLO Championship ($1,018,336) For the third year running, Loren Klein has bagged himself a WSOP bracelet. And this one, his third, is a big one. Klein took down Event #49: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship for a massive $1,018,336 score, defeating three-time bracelet winner Rep Porter heads-up to clinch victory. Klein’s previous WSOP bracelets came in a $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha in 2016, and a $1,500 PLO event in 2016. It’s safe to say that PLO is this guy’s game. Brandon Shack-Harris came into the six-handed finale as chip leader, but would ultimately have to settle for a third-place finish. He’ll have to wait for another tournament to grab his third bracelet, as will fifth-place finisher Ryan Hughes. Prior to those eliminations, we lost 2018 bracelet winner Scott Bohlman in sixth. When asked what winning a bracelet three years in a row meant to him, Klein said :”Not a ton, the variance in getting a bracelet is pretty wild. I was the same player I was three years ago before I had any bracelet, so it doesn't mean a whole lot. But it is certainly a good time. There are a lot of guys that make good runs all the time, so I am probably right there with them." Final Table Results: Loren Klein - $1,018,336 Rep Porter - $629,378 Brandon Shack-Harris - $433,259 Jerry Wong - $303,491 Ryan Hughes - $216,391 Scott Bohlman - $157,097 MONSTER STACK Down to 29 They call it the ‘Mini Main Event’, and Event #48: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MONSTER STACK has certainly lived up to that banner, what with 6,260 players taking part. After Tuesday’s Day 3 though, just 29 players remain in the hunt. Vitor Rangel is the player closest to the $1,037,451 first-place prize right now, as he bagged the overnight chip lead with 8,910,000. He’s followed by James Carroll (8,165,000), Harald Sammer (7,170,000) and Rittie Chuaprasert (5,785,000). Other notables still in contention include Michael Benko (5,250,000), Colin McHugh (4,310,000), James Salmon (4,210,000), two-time WSOP bracelet winner Steve Billirakis (4,145,000) and Jimmy Chen (4,000,000). The final 29 will return Wednesday at 11am, with all players guaranteed a $28,841 payday. Top 10 Stacks: Vitor Rangel - 8,920,000 James Carroll - 8,165,000 Harald Sammer - 7,170,000 Rittie Chuaprasert - 5,785,000 Michael Benko - 5,250,000 Colin McHugh - 4,310,000 James Salmon - 4,210,000 Steve Billirakis - 4,145,000 Jimmy Chen - 4,000,000 Raul Manzanares Lozano - 3,365,000 Day 2 of BOUNTY Takes Field Down to 29 Just like in the MONSTER STACK, Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em BOUNTY is also down to just 29 players. The 1,982 field has been whittled down to that after Tuesday’s Day 2 action. The overnight chip leader is Ranno Sootla, who entered the day with the second biggest stack and ended with the largest - 1,500,000 million. Not too far behind him is Ryan Leng with 1,381,000 in chips, while the next biggest stacks belong to 2013 Main Event runner-up Jay Farber (901,000), Jamie ‘EzGame89’ O’Connor (also 901,000), Russell Rosenblum (730,000), Mikhail Semin (677,000) and Marvin Rettenmaier (316,000). Throughout the course of play we lost several notables from the field, including Aaron Massey, (36th - $6,946), Dieter Dechant (54th - $4,765), Jan Eric Schwippert (56th - $4,014), Men Nguyen (66th - $3,419), James Mackey (89th - $2,576) and Andrey Zaichenko (144th - $1,846). There’s a very attractive $272,504 waiting for the winner, as well as the bracelet. Everyone has locked up $6,946 by making Day 3, which kicks off at 12pm Wednesday. Top 10 Stacks: Ranno Sootla - 1,500,000 Ryan Leng - 1,381,000 Jay Farber - 901,000 Jamie O’Conner - 901,000 Russell Rosenblum - 730,000 Mikhail Semin - 677,000 Juan Vecino - 663,000 Ryne Capra - 602,000 Robert Damelian - 562,000 Quyen Hoang - 554,000 Stacked Final Two Tables in $10K Limit Hold’em There are 11 bracelets split between the final 14 players in Event #52: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship, but the guy who holds a massive chip lead overnight is seeking his first piece of WSOP gold. Dan Zack dominates the field right now with more than double the chips of the second largest stack. Zack bagged up 1,217,000, followed by Matt Szymaszek with 561,000 and Nick Schulman with 499,000. Schulman is going for his third bracelet. Other bracelet winners still in include one-time winners Anthony Zinno, Scott Seiver, and Michael Moore, and three-time winners Benny Glaser and Brock Parker. Rounding out the field are Christopher Chung, Ken Deng, Matt Glantz, Philip Cordano, Maria Ho, and Bryce Landier. A few of the notables who went deep include Joao Vieira and John Hennigan, the latter of which adds points to his Player of the Year run. The final 14 have $17,000 locked up, but they’re all after the $296,222 first-place prize and the bracelet that goes with it. Will we have a new bracelet winner or will it go to one of the previous winners? Find out tomorrow when they return at 2pm. Final 14 Stacks: Dan Zack - 1,217,000 Matt Szymaszek - 561,000 Nick Schulman - 499,000 Anthony Zinno - 493,000 Christopher Chung - 487,000 Scott Seiver - 467,000 Ken Deng - 406,000 Michael Moore - 368,000 Matt Glantz 267,000 Philip Cordano - 251,000 Maria Ho - 224,000 Benny Glaser - 215,000 Brock Parker - 167,000 Bryce Landier - 83,000 Negreanu, Hellmuth, Elezra Advance in $1,500 PLO Hi-Lo 8 Day 1 of Event #53: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better wrapped up on Tuesday, with plenty of big names making it through. Out of the 935 entries, 191 found a bag. Brad Albrinck ended play with the chip lead and a stack of 137,100. He’s followed by Bryce Yockey, who had an amazing 2017 WSOP, final tabling the MONSTER STACK before going on to win his first bracelet in the $10K PLO Championship. Defending champ in this event, Nathan Gamble, will also return tomorrow with a 42,000 stack. Daniel Negreanu (81,100), Phil Hellmuth (67,400), Mike Matusow (76,800), and Eli Elezra (102,600) will all be back for more tomorrow too. Sadly, the same can’t be said for Erik Seidel, Mike Wattel, Frank Kassela, Mike Leah and Scott Bohlman, all of whom busted. There’s $244,370 up top in this one, while the bubble bursts at 141 players for a $2,245 min-cash. Action resumes at 12pm Wednesday. Top 10 Stacks: Brad Albrinck - 137,100 Bryce Yockey - 131,900 Dustin Pattinson - 129,100 Eli Elezra - 102,600 Kyle Miaso - 85,800 Quinn Do - 83,600 Thomas Cazayous - 81,400 Daniel Negreanu - 81,100 Hsiao Liu - 77,000 Mike Matusow - 76,800 Mustafov Bags Day 1 Lead in $3K Big Blind Ante NLHE Event #54: Big Blind Antes $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em proved a pretty popular event today, with 1,020 players taking part. When all was said and done ten levels later though, just 252 remained. Farehdin Mustafov ended play as the chip leader with 205,000, closely followed by Jordan Young (203,000), Uri Reichenstein (164,000) and Luciano Hollanda (162,100). Some of the other big names to advance include Kristen Bicknell (132,900), Connor Drinan (100,000), Frank Kassel (99,700), Scotty Nguyen (95,500), Kathy Liebert (60,700), Calvin Anderson (58,400), and Michael Gathy (45,000). As anyone who has ever played poker knows, for one player to gain a lot of chips must mean someone else has lost a lot. Some of those who lost their entire stacks today include Mohsin Charania, Rainer Kempe, Stephen Chidwick, Maria Lampropulos, Martin Jacobson, Sofia Lovgren, and Parker ‘Tonkaaaa’ Talbot. The bubble will burst at 153 players, all of whom will secure a $4,513 cash. That pales in comparison to the $522,715 reserved for the winner though. Action resumes at 2pm Wednesday. Top 10 Stacks: Fahredin Mustafov - 205,000 Jordan Young - 203,200 Luciano Hollanda - 162,100 Ryan Hall - 137,200 Kristen Bicknell - 132,900 Daniel Strelitz - 130,500 Marciano Cruz - 128,000 Randy Levin - 124,200 Liu Yin - 110,000 Andrey Zaichenko - 109,000 Tomorrow’s Action (June 27) There are two new events kicking off on Wednesday June 27, one of which will be right up Jay Kwon’s street. At 11am there’s the always popular Event #55: $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold’em, so it will be interesting to find out who pairs up with who. Then at 3pm there’s Event #56: $10,000 Razz Championship. Expect to see all the Razz specialists out in force for that one.
  4. With the World Series of Poker well and truly in the books for another year, the online Sunday Majors saw some familiar names return to the tables to do battle for the richest prizes of the week. The PokerStars Sunday Million saw 5,916 entrants create a $1,183,200 prize pool with 'blackaces93' and 'keksi_sn' chopping heads-up, both taking away six-figure scores. 'luckyEVever' exited in third place for $78,672, which allowed the final two to agree to a deal. 'keksi_sn' added $125,930 to their bankroll and 'blackaces93' collected $145,930 after winning the heads-up battle to claim the remaining share of the prize pool and the Sunday Million title. 'DEX888' got the better of popular Twitch streamer Parker 'tonkaaaa' Talbot heads-up to come through a 89 player field and win the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $42,184. Talbot banked a cool $31,947 for his second place finish after he beat off final table competition from 'AceSpades11' (3rd - $24,194), 'hello_totti' (4th - $18,323), Kristen 'krissyb24' Bicknell (5th - 13,876), Thomas 'WushuTM' Muhlocker (6th - 10,509), PocketFives Worldwide #1-ranked 'Lena900' (8th - $6,027.41) and Michael 'imluckbox' Addamo (9th - $5,178). 'donkno2' won a combined $66,000 for victory in the 749 player field PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller. Their victory came after a heads-up battle with 'nailuj90', who fell at the last hurdle and collected a total prize worth $36,000.There was a familiar name in the final podium spot as current world #2-ranked 'C.Darwin2' took the bronze medal along with $19,750. 'despedespi33' took down the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up and banked $32,944 after they battled through the 1,005 player field. 'bossamtisch' took the runners-up spot for $23,907, with 'SoCloseCall' awarded $17,349 for third place. Chris 'Ad_Finem' Kruk was the big winner across the partypoker network after he took down the $2,500 Super Sunday High Roller for $44,625. A prize pool worth $127,500 was created after 51 entrants took part, as Kruk banked the majority share. 'barrm111' took the silver medal alongside $29,962, with 'omgitsgiraf' the third place finisher for $19,125. Sweden's Johannes 'TrollKonst8' Korsar emerged victorious in the 888poker $1,050 The Whale and walked away with the $24,790 first-place prize. After 67 entrants created a $67,000 prize pool, the top six places were paid. 'Farrugia_1', 'tutten7', and 'WAFAL' all cashed before Alessandro 'ZeroNineee' Valli took third place for $10,050. 'cuadrado12' departed during the heads-up battle and collected $16,750, as Korsar took the gold medal.

  5. “I came back from the dead.” Back from the dead. Not literally of course, but it wasn’t that long ago Johnny ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot, the current #1-ranked player in the United Kingdom, found himself on the path to poker mediocrity. The 28-year-old grinder from the city of Durham in the UK describes himself as “quite under the radar” despite having been an online poker fixture for the better part of 10 years. Like many young online players, he first took to the game while in school. Often times meeting his friends in the common rooms to splash around a bit. “In between lessons we’d play a couple of hands, cash game hands and I'd lose, like, insane amounts of money at the time. Like, £60,” Proudfoot said. “Then it was like ‘quick deal two or three more hands before the next lesson’, that kind of stuff.” He means the kinds of "stuff" that leads one to finding their way to online poker. A lower stakes player, Proudfoot remembers his first real foray into the online world. He played a satellite to the PokerStars 2009 World Champions of Online Poker Main Event. He won the satellite, converted the ticket to tournament dollars, played another satellite and won another ticket. This time, he decided to play. No, Proudfoot didn’t end up winning the Main Event - it was Carter ‘ckingusc’ King that took it down that year - but Proudfoot did end up taking home $15,000. Plenty of money to get a bankroll started. “I was probably broke within a week,” said Proudfoot with a laugh. He lost the money but picked up the desire to grind harder. He studied, deposited $50 and began to play six max turbos for, basically, the next three years. At first, Proudfoot was doing well and beating the game. Over the course of time though he saw his earn dwindling as the game evolved. “I turned into a bad reg for about four years,” he said. “I was getting absolutely annihilated, playing a style that was so outdated.” Proudfoot was out there on his own, playing a lone wolf style. Not sharing hand histories, not using software, just playing his hands and eventually he saw his profit dissipate completely only making money on rakeback. It was unsustainable and he ended up losing "quite a bit." Only after a break to finish up his studies at University, did he think about playing again. “I was going to the gym at the time and I walked by a guy from my old school. He said ‘Oh, you play poker, don’t you? Have you seen ‘tonkaaaa’ on Twitch?’,” Proudfoot recalled. ‘tonkaaaa’ being Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot, the 888poker ambassador, and regular poker streamer. Proudfoot knew Talbot, not personally, but he played against him in all of those ‘bad reg’ years. “I watched ‘tonkaaaa’ for about two hours and everything just started clicking again,” Proudfoot said. “[Talbot] just broke a couple of hands down and I thought ‘oh my god, that’s how I used to think about poker. Why the fuck did I stop doing this?'” Watching Talbot on Twitch helped Proudfoot snap himself back to a mode of critical thinking that was successful for him at the start of his career. “I owe him pretty much everything.” That would include a major online title on the very site Talbot represents. Throughout the end of 2017 and into 2018, Proudfoot found results, including breaking to the worldwide top 100 for the first time. As he was ascending the rankings, the “under the radar” pro searched for and finally found a signature win. In May 2018, Proudfoot defeated the field of 855 players in the 888poker XL Inferno Main Event for career-high cash of over $209,000. He recalls how his big hands held up in timely spots helping him earn the victory. “It was just one of those games. Most tournament regulars will know that sometimes you get to a final table and you just can’t lose,” Proudfoot said. “Sometimes you get a feeling like 'it’s mine to lose.'” Since May, Proudfoot’s heater has continued helping him rise in the rankings and putting him just shy of $2.5 million in lifetime tournament earnings. He finally broke into the top 10 and hit a career-high ranking of #5 making him one of the most successful online tournament players of the past year. For Proudfoot, the rankings aren’t everything but he enjoys keeping an eye on them. “It’s something extra to add to the whole game and it is just a game at the end of the day, isn’t it? I mean, the [PocketFives Rankings] doesn’t mean that you're the best, but it’s a good indication. It’s the best indication we’ve got. So it’s fun to just keep score and see who’s winning,” Proudfoot said. “And, for sure, it even annoys people, doesn’t it? Like ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe he just won the Sunday Million! I’m never going to win the Sunday Million’…kind of thing. I think it’s fun. And it’s just a game, which I like.” Even though Proudfoot is currently still sitting in the top 10 and a regular in the toughest tournaments online, he’s still up for the challenge of getting better and playing even higher. “I was never the type of guy who wanted to just sit there and grind and just play the small stakes. I always wanted to play as high as possible.” With all of his ups and downs in poker over the past decade, Proudfoot remains that lone wolf in poker. He says he still doesn't know anyone in the UK poker scene and still doesn't share hand histories with anyone. Proudfoot simply puts in volume whenever he wants, so he can do whatever he wants. “I’d rather have fun than play every single Sunday. I’d rather go and live my life and enjoy myself.” Johnny Proudfoot is currently ranked #6 in the world.
  6. The biggest day of the week in the world of online poker came around quickly once again, with Patrick Leonard, Parker Talbot, Tomi Brouk, and world ranked #1 'Lena900' all picking up Sunday victories. The largest prizes up for grabs came as expected in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Million as 5,657 entrants created a $1,131,400 prize pool. Ireland's Aidan 'yaboybush' Hynes departed in fourth place for $52,808 and banked by far his biggest online cash to date. Hynes' departure paved the way for the final three to agree to a money-deal, which secured each player a six-figure score. Brazil's 'fred_volpe' was the first player to fall post-deal and took away $101,342 in third place, which left only Irishman James 'deyrzuited' Noonan and 'MrFure' in contention for the title. Noonan, who is a former Ireland #1 ranked player, was ultimately the one to miss out on the glory and departed as runner-up with his $100,227 share of the prize pool. 'MrFure' was crowned the Sunday Million winner and walked away with $133,713. Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard came through an 87 player field to take the win in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller. 'Lena900', Ricardo 'riversouza' Souza, Timothy Adams, and 'sk2ll_m0dR' all came and went on the final table before Russia's 'Futti18' exited in third place for $24,580. Leonard then got the better of Bulgaria's 'cskar4e1' and claimed the $41,580 first-place prize, with the latter having to settle for $31,969 as runner-up. It was a good day for BITB staking, after Tomi 'elmerixx' Brouk followed in the footsteps of his business partner Leonard by taking down the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder PKO High Roller. 'huiiiiiiiii' departed from the 1,018 player field with the bronze medal for $22,531.64 + $7,898.44 in bounty prizes which left a final battle between 'elmerixx' and 'C.Darwin2'. But the well-known Swedish player was unable to get the better of the Finn 'elmerixx' and 14 hours after the tournament began the latter picked up the win for $41,936.73 + $37,028.20, with 'C.Darwin2' banking $30,739.06 + $8,019.53 in second. 'viskuzi' claimed the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up title following a heads-up deal with 'JopperHarryN'. 1,048 entrants took part in the tournament and created a $209,600 prize pool. 'RaiseYourEdge' head coach 'bencb789' took third place for $17,581 before the final two agreed to a money-deal and played out for the win. 'JopperHarryN' fell at the final hurdle and banked $27,021, as 'viskuzi' took the win for $31,440. Sweden's current world ranked #1 'Drulitooo' aka 'Lena900' saw off 59 other entrants to win the partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller for $41,480. Eight places were paid from the 60 player field, and after 'nipa3p3' was sent to the virtual rail in third place for $21,750, the final two agreed to a deal. 'j2805667' ultimately took away $40,269 for their share of the remaining prize pool as runner-up, and the Swede extended his lead at the top of the online rankings after another gold medal performance. 'PotatoLottery' won over $67,000 after coming out on top in the partypoker $1,050 KO Series #04-HR tournament. As part of the 'Knock-Out' series currently running on the site, this tournament saw 247 entrants compete for a share of the $300,000 prize pool. 'rafaelmoraesgm' exited in third place for $18,905.56 + $1,503.12 in bounties before 'PotatoLottery' was able to defeat 'Pider Ninni' heads-up, with the latter banking $26,591.80 + $8,600.31 and the silver medal. Over on 888poker, it was a great evening for popular twitch streamer Parker '888tonkaaaa' Talbot who won the $215 Sunday Mega Deep after a heads-up deal with 'sikosomatik'. The Canadian 888poker ambassador concluded the deal after 'bossamtisch1' had departed in third place for $10,879, and the final two played out for the all-important top spot. Talbot came out the other side victorious to bank $17,390, with 'sikosomatik' taking away $16,511.81. Talbot then tweeted his excitement to his almost 23,000 followers and stated he would be back streaming his online grind on Tuesday, after a well deserved day's rest on Monday. https://twitter.com/tonkaaaap/status/1064387821736206336 Below are this week’s Sunday final table results: PokerStars Sunday Million ($200 + $15 NLHE) $1M Guaranteed 5,657 entrants, $1,131,400 prize pool MrFure - $133,713.75* deyrzuited - $100,227.82* fred_volpe - $101,342.80* yaboybush - $52,808.54 edu22.sp - $37,059.45 EPNR - $26,007.15 aecrim93 - $18,251.06 Chapo16 - $12,808.12 mahairong - $8,988.40 PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller, $150k Gtd 87 entrants, $174,000 prize pool pads1161 - $41,580.18 cskar4e1 - $31,969.64 Futti18 - $24,580.45 sk2ll_m0dR - $18,899.13 Tim0thee - $14,530.94 riversouza - $11,172.38 Anjeyyy - $8,590.08 Lena900 - $6,604.65 EstoyPiantao - $5,818.99 PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder PKO High Roller, $300k Gtd 1,018 entrants, $509,000 prize pool elmerixx - $41,936.73 + $37,028.20 C.Darwin2 - $30,739.06 + $8,019.53 huiiiiiiiii - $22,531.64 + $7,898.44 ezynow99 - $16,515.62 + $9,036.12 Proudflop - $12,105.90 + $1,234.38 DotComRicher - $8,873.60 + $3,617.19 pipazzio - $6,504.33 + $4,298.83 OMGuGotLeaks - $4,767.65 + $3,023.44 INormaJean - $3,494.66 + $2,390.62 PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up $175k Gtd 1,048 entrants, $209,600 prize pool viskuzi - $31,440.73* JopperHarryN - $27,021.83* bencb789 - $17,581.60 BrightStripe - $12,641.33 bigfox86 - $9,089.22 hashov888 - $6,535.24 tateren - $4,698.89 que_te_crio - $3,378.56 Manni1822 - $2,429.22 partypoker $109 Sunday Main Event $150k Gtd 790 entrants, $158,000 prize pool Maddonaa - $28,203 Fulgencio1962 - $20,066 good player - $13,477.40 Zluka2010 - $9,132.40 broooooooooooo - $6,446.40 seotaiji86 - $4,645.20 Danger4sure - $3,318 sgentopimienta - $2,306.80 partypoker $1,050 KO Series #04-HR $300k 247 entrants, $300,000 prize pool PotatoLottery - $40,316.66 + $27,088.77 Pider Ninni - $26,591.80 + $8,600.31 rafaelmoraesgm - $18,905.56 + $1,503.12 FkTheseGuysBro - $13,810.58 + $1,820 skitzo793 - $10,293.60 + $3,753.75 MOTHERSMATTERS - $6,862.40 + $5,155.31 mwhldwn - $4,717.90 + $3,176.87 toadstoadstoads - $4,717.90 + $3,445 mcgag - $4,717.90 + $3,046.87 partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller $100k Gtd 60 entrants, $150,000 prize pool Drulitooo - $41,480.07* j2805667 - $40,269.94* nipa3p3 - $21,750 Phil_Zajmo - $13,500 lincownz - $10,500 MOTHERSMATTERS - $8,250 FMylife - $7,125 MisterN411 - $7,125 partypoker $1,050 Sunday Main Event HR $150k Gtd 163 entrants, $163,000 prize pool Valterego1 - $36,071.90 whresmymind - $25,917 GiGioDoNNa99 - $18,908 mwhldwn - $13,529 sk2ll_modR - $9,454 Dextered - $7,335 reallygamble - $5,705 Drulitooo - $4,482.50 888poker $215 Sunday Mega Deep 304 entrants – $100,000 prize pool 888tonkaaaa - $17,390.19* sikosomatik - $16,511.81* bossamtisch1 - $10,879 buitre180 - $7,853 888topPair - $5,313 checcmate - $3,795 CoinShipper - $2,783 IbetUFold - $2,277
  7. Perhaps the only thing more fun than throwing some clothes in a duffle bag and hopping on a flight for a highly anticipated poker vacation is to do exactly that but with a couple of your best friends in tow. In their new promotion, 888poker is giving their players a chance to win a special trip to the UK to participate in the 888poker LIVE London Festival. More specifically, the package includes a stake to splash around in an exclusive “Bros vs. Pros” cash game as well as tickets to hit the pitch and watch a football match. Get Qualified First things first: on November 14 and 17 at 21:00 GMT (4:00 PM ET) players need to log-in and play in either (or both) of the two $1 buy-in Bros vs. Pros online qualifying events. The tournaments have an $888 guarantee, however - and this is important - they are password protected. It’s easy to discover the password though, players simply need to follow along with 888poker’s social media feeds where they will be given out. Once players uncover the password, register for the tournaments and survive to make the top five in either of the qualifiers. Then, the ten players who make it to the end will compete in the final 10-person Sit & Go on November 18, again taking place at 21:00 GMT (4:00 PM ET). The winner of that contest takes home the Bros vs Pros grand prize as well as gets to surprise two of their best friends with a VIP trip to London. The package is a fun one. It grants a seat into the £1,100 $500,000 GTD 888poker LIVE London Main Event, tickets to the upcoming football (soccer) match between the London Arsenal and the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and £1,000 stake for the Bros vs Pros cash game. Battle The Pros The Bros vs Pros cash game is an invite-only cash game featuring some of the game’s top names. 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Scott Blumstein, three-time WSOP Poker Players Championship Winner Michael ‘the Grinder’ Mizrachi, 888poker ambassadors Dominik Nitsche, Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot and Vivian Saliba will all be taking a seat and looking to battle with the Bros. The Bros vs Pros promotion is all part of the upcoming 888poker LIVE London Festival taking place at the Aspers Casino in London. The 24/7 poker action features 10 events over 12 days with $1 million in total guarantees. The festival boasts a schedule with the perfect events to satisfy everyone from the novice to the high roller. In addition to the Main Event, value seekers can hop into any of the five starting flights of the £220 Opening Event, which promises a five-figure score for the winner. For the shot takers, there is a £2,200 High Roller and a £5,000 Super High Roller. On the other end of the spectrum, there are plenty of low buy-in events for those who are looking to splash around or simply get their feet wet in a live environment. Qualifiers for the Bros vs Pros package are found under the Tournaments - Live Events tab in the 888poker client.

  8. Over 9,000 Twitch viewers saw popular streamer and 888poker ambassador Parker 'Tonkaaa' Talbot take the silver medal in the PokerStars Sunday Million for $124,114 following a heads-up deal with eventual winner 'PokerDave476'. Talbot, who enjoyed success on the live poker felt after a sixth-place finish in the PokerStars EPT Prague Main Event last month for $203,626, agreed to a chop with 'PokerDave476' following 'Rus_us8''s exit in third place for $77,622. With $20,000 in the prize pool still to play for, the poker fans flocked to Talbot's Twitch stream to see if the Canadian could go all the way. Both players started with even chips before Talbot took a 2-1 lead, but the U.K.'s 'PokerDave476' pulled it back and was ultimately crowned victor for $144,114. Both players achieved their biggest online cashes to date in the process and added six-figures to their bankrolls. https://twitter.com/tonkaaaap/status/1087259669591150592?s=20 'Secret_M0d3' took down the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $48,431 after a heads-up deal with Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar. PokerStars Team Pro Igor Kurganov was the first player to fall from the final table of nine before his fellow Team Pro, and girlfriend Liv Boeree just missed out on a place on the podium after she finished in fourth-place for $24,182. Russia's 'Futti18' took the bronze for $45,435, before the final two agreed to a deal. 'Secret_M0d3' then got the better of Korsar during heads-up and banked $48,431, with Korsar settling for $45,435. 'Bjuran' came through a 1,005 player-field in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller to win over $76,000. 'DanielLUCKY' took the bronze medal for $22,243 + $7,710 in bounties and paved the way for the heads-up match. Germany's 'Tydarax' fell as runner-up for an online best score of $30,346 + $9,811, which left 'Bjuran' to be named the victor. 1,058 runners in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up created a $211,600 prize pool and a $34,334 first-place prize. Among the players at the final table looking to take down the title were PocketFivers 'Easterdamn', 'newguy89 ', and 'LlKE A G6', but they all hit the rail before the well-known 'girafganger7' binked a bronze medal worth $17,749. 'Dabledore7' was then the unlucky final player to depart and took away $24,685 as runner-up with Russia's 'Egor699' claiming the gold medal and top prize. 'Mr.Water99' got the better of partypoker ambassador Anatoly 'NL_Profit' Filatov heads-up to take down the partypoker $1,050 Deepstack-HR. A field of 111 players created a $111,000 prize pool with 'chadi6969' taking the third-place prize worth $13,875. Filatov was looking to score another victory on his partner site, but was unable to get through the challenge from his opponent and exited as runner-up $19,425, with 'Mr.Water99' banking $27,195 as the winner. 'pockjack0' saw off the challenge of 61 opponents in the partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller to claim victory for $50,375. The prize pool was set at $155,000, and just beat the $150,000 guarantee. When the final eight came together Canadian High Roller Sam 'DeanMalenko' Greenwood was the first player to hit the rail, followed by partypoker ambassador Roberto 'Welsh_Wizard' Romanello who departed in seventh-place and eventually saw his team-mate Patrick Leonard eliminated in third-place for $22,475. 'RedDwarf9' was then the final player that 'pockjack0' needed to depart for victory, and the former fell with the silver medal for $34,000.

Fifteen total tournaments from the massive 255-event schedule were on tap on Monday and players helped push the total prize pool north of $945,000 as 14 of the 15 events crushed their guarantee. The largest event of the day was the Event #09-HR ($1,050 Progressive Knockout 8-Max) which saw 191 players vying for a piece of the $200K guarantee.

A heads-up deal was made that gave ‘Beachfarm95’ just over $21,000 for his runner-up finish. Maszat ‘Grunwalsk1’ Marci took home $13,609.45 in third place. Event #09-H ($320 Progressive Knockout 8-Max) also proved to be extremely popular as 597 entries pushed the prize pool $33,876 over the posted $150K guarantee.
