  1. Hosted by Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters, The Fives Poker Podcast runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker. Lance and Donnie remember the late Sam Grizzle to kick off this week's episode of The Fives. The 67-year-old poker legend passed away following a stroke in mid-October. The upcoming Doug Polk vs. Daniel Negreanu challenge is sure to take the poker world by storm and Lance and Donnie preview what the potential outcomes are and what - if anything - it settles between the two. While that challenge promises to hold the poker world's attention over the coming weeks and months, both guys discuss how the latest Galfond Challenge match featuring Phil Galfond and Chance Kornuth has yet to really garner the same type of following as the now legendary battle against 'Venvidi1993' did earlier this year. They also discuss the return of live poker to Atlantic City, the strong turnout at the Venetian in Las Vegas for the Venetian DeepStack Showdown, and the possibility of online poker foe Sheldon Adelson selling his US-facing operations and what that might mean for the future of regulated online gaming in the United States.

  2. Early Friday morning, Ryan Torgersen suffered the ultimate heartbreak in poker after finishing runner-up in Event #9 of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online. A little bit more than 24 hours later, Torgersen enjoyed the ultimate joy after winning Event #10 ($600 NLHE Monster Stack) to win his first career bracelet and $172,361. He could not have picked a better event to win. For the first time in the 2020 WSOP Online, the prize pool moved into seven-figure territory with 2,074 total entries building a $1,119,960 prize pool. The first elimination of the final table came five minutes after it began. Action folded to Tom '4Logan' Dean on the button and he moved all in for 3,105,365 with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] and 'Letsgetit888' re-shoved for 5,710,730 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"][poker card="9d"] flop gave 'Letsgetit888' second pair and left Dean drawing thin. The [poker card="4s"] turn and [poker card="5h"] river were both blanks and Dean was out in ninth place. Just a few minutes later, another preflop all in confrontation sent a player packing. Eric 'bill_luga' Blair raised to 1,000,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"] before Nick 'DuckFlush' Pupillo moved all in for 6,192,549 from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"] and Blair called. Pupillo was unable to connect with the [poker card="8c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5h"] flop or the [poker card="2h"] turn and the [poker card="kd"] river gave Blair an unnecessary improvement to eliminate Pupillo in eighth. Torgersen finally got involved in the business of eliminating players at the final table five minutes later. From the hijack, Torgersen raised to 1,095,000, Brent 'grebnrets' Roberts called from the cutoff and 'FatStax' and Sam 'texasmolly' Grizzle defended the small and big blinds respectively. The flop came [poker card="8s"][poker card="7s"][poker card="7c"] and 'FatStax' moved all in for 2,446,816. Grizzle got out of the way, Torgersen came over the top for 10,838,096 forcing Roberts to fold. 'Fatstax' turned over [poker card="td"][poker card="9d"] and Torgersen showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"]. The turn was the [poker card="3d"] and the [poker card="8d"] completed the river to give Torgersen the pot and end the tournament for 'Fatstax' in seventh place. A few hands later Sam Grizzle moved into the chip lead and almost immediately put it to work. From UTG, Roberts moved all in for 7,559,235 with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"] and Grizzle called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"]. The [poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3s"] flop left Roberts in control. The [poker card="7c"] turn gave Grizzle nine more outs. The river was the [poker card="ah"] to give Grizzle top pair and send Roberts home in sixth. Torgersen then ended another player's tournament in a massive pot. Action folded to 'letsgetit888' on the button and they moved all in for 11,964,504 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"] only to have Torgersen call from the big blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6d"] flop changed nothing but the [poker card="qd"] turn gave 'letsgetit888' top pair. Torgersen filled his straight draw on the [poker card="tc"] river to eliminate 'letsgetit888' in fifth place. Four-handed play lasted nearly 15 minutes. Blair raised to 1,600,000 from the button and Brandon 'Omni27' Ienn called from the big blind. The flop came [poker card="jc"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7h"], Ienn checked, Blair bet 980,000 and Ienn called. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] and Ienn bet 1,600,000. Blair moved all in for 6,590,707 and Ienn called. Blair turned over [poker card="6c"][poker card="7s"] for trip sevens while Blair was drawing to an open-ender with [poker card="5s"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="6h"] river gave Ienn an unneeded full house and busted Blair in fourth. Old school poker fans had their heart broken just 15 minutes later. Ienn raised to 2,000,000 from the button before Grizzle moved all in for 13,150,561 from the small blind. Torgersen then moved all in over the top for 37,667,878 and Ienn folded. Grizzle showed [poker card="qd"][poker card="jh"] to Torgersen's [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2c"] flop gave Grizzle top pair. The turn was the [poker card="8c"] to give Torgersen more outs and the [poker card="ts"] river gave him a set to eliminate Grizzle in third. Torgersen held a nearly 2-1 chip lead over Ienn when heads up play began and needed less than five minutes to eliminate Ienn. The final hand saw Torgersen shove from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="8d"] and Ienn called all in for 18,761,561. The [poker card="5d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="ts"][poker card="tc"] run out meant Torgersen's [poker card="8d"] played and Ienn was eliminated in second place to give Torgersen his first WSOP bracelet. Final Table Payouts Ryan 'Im.sorry' Torgersen - $172,361 Brandon 'Omni27' Ienn - $106,508 Sam 'texasmolly' Grizzle - $77,725 Eric 'bill_luga' Blair - $57,229 letsgetit888 - $42,558 Brent 'grebnrets' Roberts - $31,918 FatStax - $24,079 Nick 'DuckFlush' Pupillo - $18,367 Tom '4Logan' Dean - $14,223 Faces in the Crowd The player who ultimately busted Torgersen in second place in Event #9, Ron 'MacDaddy15' MacMillen made a deep run in Event #10 as well, eventually busting in 65th place for $2,127.92. He wasn't the only 2020 WSOP Online bracelet winner to cash on Friday though. Robert Kuhn (19th - $5,487.80) and Louis 'PokeThese' Lynch (31st - $4,367.84) both made their way into the money. Other notables included Jesse Sylvia (27th - $5,487.80), Jason 'haderade' Somerville (51st - $3,023.89), Ian Steinman ($1,455.94), and Shawn 'Saygoodnight' Daniels (266th - $1,007.96).
  3. Nicholas 'mrfinalt' Kiley navigated through 1,483 other players on Saturday night to the early hours of Sunday morning to win the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Event #25 ($500 NLHE Summer Saver) for $149K and his first career bracelet. Matt 'Berkey11_S4Y' Berkey made his second WSOP final table appearance in as many nights and started as chip leader. Looking to improve on his seventh place finish from Event #24, Berkey was also on the hunt for his first career bracelet. The 2016 Super High Roller Bowl champion also got the first final table elimination of the day. Raising all-in on the button to 9,149,831 with [poker card="Kc"][poker card="3c"], Ofir 'panda15' Mor called off his 2,941,919 stack with [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Qs"]. Despite Mor flopping middle set on the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Qc"][poker card="6d"] flop, he still had to evade the flush draw. The [poker card="8c"] turn completed the flush for Berkey and the [poker card="3s"] river ended the tournament for Mor. Four minutes later Nicholas 'mrfinalt' Kiley opened to 345,678 from late position and Michael 'ha8me' Policastro called from the small blind. Policastro took the initiative on the [poker card="3c"][poker card="3s"][poker card="Qc"] flop, betting 758,517 which was called by Kiley. Policastro jammed for 3,526,398 on the [poker card="8s"] turn and was snap-called by his opponent. Policastro flopped two pair with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qd"] but was behind as Kiley rolled over [poker card="Ac"][poker card="3d"] for the stronger holding. The [poker card="Tc"] river wasn't one the two outs Policastro needed and finished the day in eighth. The next bust-out came seven minutes later when 'Daddyp69' open-jammed from the cutoff looking to get the walk. Unfortunately, Berkey woke up with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Ah"] and called from the small blind looking for another elimination. 'Daddyp69' was drawing to two immediate outs with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"] and was sent to the rail failing to connect with the [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Jd"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="Tc"] runout. Six-handed play lasted for less than ten minutes when Berkey was again leading the action as he opened from UTG for 480,000. Kevin 'Specialk333' Calenzo moved all-in for 3,330,936 from the cutoff, Weiyi 'wymoney' Mo then four-bet jammed her 5,780,224 from the small looking to isolate Calenzo. The pre-flop action caused Berkey to fold and Calenzo with [poker card="As"][poker card="Qc"] was dominated by Mo's [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Kd"]. Both players paired their ace on the [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Ts"][poker card="5d"] and both made two-pair with the [poker card="5h"] turn. The at -isk Calenzo was looking for another ace, queen or five to preserve his tournament status but the [poker card="6h"] river meant Mo took all the chips. Berkey's bracelet hunt was dented after being on the wrong side of a cooler against Guo Liang 'Ct188' Chen. In blind versus blind action, Chen limped-called from the small when Berkey raised to 689,999 to see the [poker card="As"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3d"] flop. Berkey bet 1,166,248 after Chen checked his option, Chen made the call to see the [poker card="Jd"] turn. Chen again checked and Berkey put his opponent all in and was snap-called. Berkey, holding [poker card="4s"][poker card="3h"] connected hard, making two pair on the flop but was drawing dead as Chen flopped top set with his [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ad"]. The [poker card="5d"] river meant nothing and left Berkey hanging in there by a thread. Two hands later Berkey was out in fifth, moving all in from the button for 3,237,065. Kiley called in the small blind. Kiley: [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Ts"] Berkey: [poker card="Jc"][poker card="9s"] Kiley made trips on the [poker card="Tc"][poker card="Th"][poker card="6s"] flop, the [poker card="5d"] turn and [poker card="Js"] river denied the storybook ending Berkey was looking for. Kiley quickly scored another final table knockout four minutes later. Stephen 'S.Dott22' Russo raised to 1,040,000 from UTG with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Qd"] and called off his remaining 4,723,216 stack after Kiley three-bet jammed for 16,993,456 from the big blind with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="8d"]. Both players missed the [poker card="5s"][poker card="9d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="6c"][poker card="7s"] board but Kiley's ace-high was good enough to send Russo out in fourth. Mo, who is one of many female poker players who had deep runs in this year's WSOP, called Chen's 800,000 button raise from the big blind. Mo with [poker card="3s"][poker card="3d"] decided to ship her short stack on the [poker card="7h"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="6d"] flop, Chen holding [poker card="9s"][poker card="6s"] quickly called with third pair. The [poker card="5d"] turn meant Mo picked up a gutshot straight draw but the [poker card="As"] river ended Mo's chances of becoming the first female winner of 2020 WSOP Online event. That left Chen and Kiley both looking to win their first WSOP bracelet event and claim the $149K first place cash prize. Chen three-bet to 2,475,000 after Kiley opened 800,000 and the latter called to see the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4c"] flop. Chen fired a continuation bet, downsizing to 2,125,000, Kiley called again to see the [poker card="8c"] turn. Chen then decided to check-call after Kiley fired for 5,050,000, the [poker card="Jh"] completed the board and Chen checked again. Kiley, who had the chip lead, put Chen to the test for all his chips and he made the crying call with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Jc"] but Kiley's [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Th"] was best and enough for him to scoop a six-figure payday and secure his maiden WSOP gold bracelet. Final Table Payouts Nicholas 'mrfinalt' Kiley - $149,244.52 Guo Liang 'Ct188' Chen - $92,223.22 Weiyi 'wymoney' Mo - $67,300.65 Stephen 'S.Dott22' Russo - $49,554.22 Matt 'Berkey11_S4Y' Berkey - $36,850.50 Kevin 'Specialk333' Calenzo - $27,637.87 'Daddyp69' - $20,849.62 Michael 'Ha8me' Policastro - $15,903.90 Ofir 'panda15' Mor - $12,315.82 Faces in the Crowd Event #25 brought saw a plethora of familiar faces getting into the money while chasing for WSOP glory. Daniel 'RedSoxNets5' Sewnig finished 49th for $2,618.32 while Anthony 'heheh' Zinno (71st - $1,842.52), Brian Rast (87th - $1,454.62), and Chris Moorman (92nd - $1,357.65) also worked their way into the money. After spending part of the night at the same table, Daniel Negreanu (183rd - $969) and Phil Hellmuth (216th - $873) both added another WSOP cash to their long list of achievements.
