  1. When the United States leg of the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event reached the final table two weeks ago, Louisiana native Joseph Hebert was the chip leader. Having two weeks to prepare for the biggest moment of his poker career, Hebert admitted that the nerves got to him as he took his seat at the Rio on Monday night. "The pressure was overwhelming for sure. When I sat down I was uncomfortable for sure," Hebert said. Hebert didn't break under the pressure though and late Monday night he was the last player standing and was $1.5 million richer because of it. The day began with news that Upeshka De Silva had failed a COVID test and was disqualified from the final table and awarded a ninth place finish. That left just eight players vying for the $1.5 million first place prize and the opportunity to play International leg winner Damian Salas for the bracelet and additional $1 million in prize money. Gershon Distenfeld started the final table with the third smallest stack but lasted just six hands before being eliminated. Ron Jenkins raised to 375,000 from middle position with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"] before Distenfeld shoved for 1,430,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="kc"][poker card="jc"]. Jenkins called and sweated the [poker card="9h"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"][poker card="th"][poker card="5h"] runout to eliminate Distenfeld in eighth place. Distenfeld plans to donate his $125,885 winnings to charity. Seven-handed play went on for another 55 hands of play before the next elimination occurred. With blinds of 125,000/250,000, Shawn Stroke shoved his last 975,000 from TG+1 with [poker card="3d"][poker card="3s"], from his immediate left, Harrison Dobin moved all in over the top for 4,200,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"], and Jenkins called all in for 3,280,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"]. The [poker card="td"][poker card="2d"][poker card="2s"] flop kept Jenkins in front and neither the [poker card="th"] turn or [j] river changed anything and Stroke was eliminated in seventh. Down to just four big blinds, Dobin only got to see two more hands. From the button, Hebert raised to 500,000 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="2d"] and Dobin called off his last 750,000 from the big blind with [poker card="5d"][poker card="3h"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="2h"] flop left Dobin in dire straits before the [poker card="qc"] river sealed his fate. The [poker card="9s"] completed the board to send Dobin out in sixth. Hebert was responsible for the next elimination 11 hands later in a blind vs. blind situation. Tony Yuan moved all in for 2,830,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="th"] and Hebert called with [poker card="4d"][poker card="4h"]. Yuan found no relief on the [poker card="5h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3s"] flop and could only collect his things as the [poker card="7d"] turn and [poker card="9h"] river left Hebert to rake in the pot and bust Yuan in fifth place. Jenkins went back to work eliminating opponents 19 hands later. Action folded to Jenkins in the small blind and he moved all in with [poker card="as"][poker card="jd"] and Ryan Hagerty called all in from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="2h"] flop gave both players a pair but left Jenkins in front. Neither the turn or river card saved Hagerty from being eliminated in fourth place. Six hands later, the tournament entered the heads-up portion of play after Hebert sent another player to the rail. Hebert opened to 600,000 from the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] and Michael Cannon responded by moving all in from the small blind for 4,800,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"] and Hebert snap-called. Hebert was well in front and stayed there as the [poker card="ts"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"] didn't gave Cannon any real extra outs and he was eliminated in third. Hebert held a 2-1 chip lead when heads-up play began and it took just one single hand for him toe garner all of the chips in play. From the button, Hebert raised to 700,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"] before Jenkins raised to 2,300,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"]. Hebert clicked back all in and Jenkins called with his tournament life on the line. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="kd"][poker card="7c"] flop gave Hebert top pair and left Jenkins hoping for running straight or flush cards or the case queen. The [poker card="4h"] turn meant only one card in the deck could save Jenkins and the [poker card="8c"] river was not it. Hebert eliminated Jenkins in second place and banked the $1,553,256 score while Jenkins had to settle for runner-up status and $1,002,340. Hebert now waits for Salas, winner of the international leg of the tournament, to arrive from Argentina to play him heads-up for the bracelet and an additional $1 million. Salas was apparently denied entry to the United States this week after traveling to Europe in the last 15 days. Hebert plans on spending the next few days learning as much as he can about the former November Niner in preparation for their match. "I really don't much about him. I need to read up on him a little bit more. I was trying to focus on this final table first," Hebert said. "I'm super excited and I can't wait to face him." The finale is expected to be played next Sunday. Final Table Payouts Joseph Hebert - $1,553,256 Ron Jenkins - $1,002,340 Michael Cannon - $529,258 Ryan Hagerty - $387,130 Tony Yuan - $286,963 Harrison Dobin - $215,222 Shawn Stroke - $163,786 Gershon Distenfeld - $125,885 Upeshka De Silva - $98,813
  2. The 71 players who survived Day 1 of the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event on WSOP.com returned to the tables on Monday to battle for a seat at the December 28 televised live final table and a shot at the $1,553,256 first-place prize. The Final Nine After roughly seven hours of play, only nine players remained with Louisiana’s Joseph Hebert taking a commanding chip lead into the final table. Hebert was involved in a number of key eliminations down the stretch and ended the day with 13,052,534 in chips, more than 2.5 times anyone else in the field. New York native Shawn Stroke wrapped up the day sitting in second with 5,252,000 in chips, followed closely by New Jersey's Ryan Hagerty in third with 5,071,572. Ye Yuan (4,829,459), Michael Cannon (4,408,847), and Gershon Distenfeld (3,475,481) make up the middle of the pack. Southern California's Ron Jenkins (2,476,746, Day 1 chip leader Upeshka De Silva (2,151,969) and short stack Harrison Dobin (1,581,392) complete the final table. Final Table Chip Counts [table id=145 /] Early Eliminations It didn’t take long for the bustouts to begin as mere moments after the start of Day 2 one of the shortest stacks in the field, Julian Parmann, hit the rail at the hands of Dan Zack after Parmann’s [poker card="js"][poker card="ts"] couldn’t hold against Zack’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"] after the [poker card="th"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3s"] flop. The [poker card="3c"] turn looked good for Parmann but the [poker card="ks"] on the river helped break the dam on the flood of eliminations that occurred before the final table. Parmann wasn’t the only player to exit in the early going as he was joined by the likes of Ryan Laplante, Barry Hutter, and Farid Jattin, all of whom turned their $10K into an $18,274 payday. Of course, the hits kept coming in the first half of the day as the dream of taking down the Main Event ended for some of the most notable names in the field. Nick Schulman (55th, $20,304), Aram Zobian (52nd, $22,334), Darren Elias (50th, $22,334), 2013 WSOP Champ Ryan Riess (47th, $22,334), and Freddy Deeb (46th, $22,334) were among those whose Day 2 was cut short. Big Name Bustouts Bracelet winners fell in bunches at the half-way point. After three-time WSOP bracelet winner Scott Seiver busted in 39th place for $25,718, Mohsin Charania (35th, $29,779), Joseph Cheong (33rd, $29,779), and Jason Somerville (32nd, $29,779) all exited in short order as well. Taylor Von Kriegenbergh (23rd), Maria Ho (22nd), and Jared Griener (20th) were among those who picked up a $35,194 payday after being eliminated with three tables left. March To The Final Table With just two tables remaining, half of the field still needed to go broke before the final nine could celebrate. Unfortunately for WSOP bracelet winner Sean Swingruber, he would not be among them. After Stroke and Yaun flat called, Swingruber shoved his short stack from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="tc"]. Stroke reshoved his stack holding [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"] and Yuan, who had everyone covered, called with his [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"]. The board ran out [poker card="9h"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3d"][poker card="js"] to give the pot to Stroke and sent Swingruber home in 18th place. Moments later Michael Hahn made his move by open-shoving his ten big blind stack with [poker card="ah"][poker card="6h"]. Dan Zack made the call from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="qs"] and then Clayton Maguire, who had both covered, three-bet shoved holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"]. Maguire hit his king on the [poker card="kd"][poker card="js"][poker card="5s"] flop, but the [poker card="th"] let Zack hit his gutshot straight. Hahn was drawing dead to the [poker card="9d"] river and he fell in 17th place. After Distenfeld opened, Keith Dovovan three-bet his final ten big blinds holding [poker card="as"][poker card="4s"] only to get called by Yuan in the big blind who has [poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"]. The board came [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"] allowing Yaun’s kicked to play and sending Donovan home in 16th place. It was a rough exit for Rody Collazo who got his stack in the middle with [poker card="jd"][poker card="jc"] against Hebert and his [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"] flop looked good for Collazo, but after Hebert spiked the [poker card="tc"] on the turn, Collazo was down to two outs. The [poker card="9h"] was not one of them and Collazo left in 15th place. A huge hand when down after Stephen Graner raised nearly his entire stack holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] only to be jammed on by Maguire in the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="jd"]. Then Hebert, the largest stack of the three, re-jammed over the top with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"]. After Graner put the rest of his stack in, the three watched a board of [poker card="kd"][poker card="9h"][poker card="7s"][poker card="4c"][poker card="8d"] run out. Hebert’s big slick won the pot and eliminated both Graner (14th) and Maguire (13th) in one stroke. Hebert wasn’t anywhere near finished. Next, he got involved in a hand with Martin Zamani where Herbert raised from early position with [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"] and Zamani defended his big blind with [poker card="js"][poker card="8h"]. The flop came [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="9c"] and Zamani checked it over to Hebert who put in a bet. Zamani then check-raised all-in, which Hebert called.The turn came [poker card="ah"] and the river was the [poker card="6h"]. Both players missed, but Hebert’s ace-king high hand was good enough to take Zamani out in 12th place. Hebert then mixed it up with WSOP bracelet winner Dan Zack. After Zack put in a raise with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="9d"], Hebert flat called holding the [poker card="ks"][poker card="kh"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="3c"] flop meant there was going to be plenty of action. Zack checked his two pair and Hebert put in a bet with his top set, which Zack called. Zack checked the [poker card="jd"] turn and Hebert shoved, putting Zack to the test for all his chips. Zack made the call, which ended his tournament in 11th place before the [poker card="qh"] hit the river. With just 10 players left, Anthony Spinella was sitting on just two big blinds. He moved all in from the button with [poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"] and Stroke put in a three-bet with [poker card="as"][poker card="8c"], allowing for the pot to be heads up. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"][poker card="5c"] flop put Stroke in the lead, but gave Spinella outs to the gutshot straight. The [poker card="js"] produced a few more outs for the WSOP Online bracelet winner, but the [poker card="5s"] was not one of them and Anthony Spinella finished in 10th place, bubbling the final table of the 2020 WSOP Main Event. Payouts 18-10 [table id=146 /] Now the final nine have two weeks to prepare, and quarantine, in preparation for the live final table that will take place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino on December 28 where one of them will not just earn the over $1.55 million first-place prize but a date to battle the international Main Event winner in a $1 million heads-up contest that will determine who the history books will recognize at the 2020 WSOP Main Event champion.
