  1. [caption width="640"] Timothy Adams beat 36 elites to win the PokerStars Championship Prague Super High Roller (Neil Stoddart/PokerStars photo)[/caption] PokerStars Championship Prague opened with a bang this week at the Hilton with the €50,000 Super High Roller event. A field of 34 elites assembled and a regular in these fields, Canadian Timothy Adams, claimed first place at a final table that included Sam Greenwood and Koray Aldemir. Following the elimination of Dietrich Fast on the bubble by Greenwood, Aldemir, the lone representative of the German contingent to make the money, was busted an hour later by Adrian Mateos. With the blinds at 15,000/30,000, Aldemir raised to 245,000 in the cutoff and Mateos called in the small blind. Mateos put Aldemir all-in for 147,000 on the [poker card="qs"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3s"] flop and Aldemir called with [poker card="ah"][poker card="9s"]. Mateos led with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] before the [poker card="ad"] turn. Not to worry for Mateos, the [poker card="6s"] hit the river to give him a higher flush and the elimination. One level later, Greenwood exited in fifth. Turkey’s Orpen Kisacikoglu opened the cutoff for 95,000 and Greenwood pushed for 790,000 from the big blind. Kisacikoglu called with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] and Greenwood had two immediate outs holding [poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="7h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="tc"][poker card="4c"] board was good enough for Kisacikoglu and Greenwood departed. Adams got on the board to narrow the final table to three by busting out Kisacikoglu. Adams opened the button to 115,000 and Kisacikoglu three-bet out of the small blind to 330,000. From position, Adams called and the flop came out [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="7s"]. Kisacikoglu bet 285,000 more and Adams moved all-in and Kisacikoglu called. Adams was live with [poker card="9c"][poker card="7c"] against the [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"] of Kisacikoglu. The [poker card="ah"] held for Kisacikoglu but the [poker card="9d"] river gave Adams two pair and the pot. Play resumed on Day 3 with Adams holding a large chip lead. Mikita Badziakouski doubled a few times to start play and then Mateos went out with the bronze medal. Mateos pushed for 11 big blinds on the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="8c"] and Adams called with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"] in the big blind. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4d"] flop put Adams into the lead. Following the [poker card="2d"] turn, Mateos had his outs reduced and the [poker card="ad"] river gave Adams a flush to beat the two pair of Mateos. Adams and Badziakouski went to heads up play with Adams holding a large chip lead. Adams pushed for 10 big blinds effective after looking down at [poker card="7s"][poker card="6s"] and Badziakouski called with two overcards [poker card="jh"][poker card="th"]. A flop of [poker card="as"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6h"] put Adams in the lead but Badziakouski was still plenty live. The [poker card="8h"] turn put many outs in play for Badziakouski but he didn’t hit he any that he needed on the [poker card="8d"] river. The win is the second for Adams in a PSC series. In April, he won the €25,750 shot clock event in Monte Carlo. Final Table Payouts Timothy Adams - €555,000 Mikita Badziakouski - €383,600 Adrian Mateos - €244,900 Orpen Kisacikoglu - €187,710 Sam Greenwood - €147,000 Koray Aldemir - €114,300
  2. Even after the fanfare of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100K Super High Roller died down with Canadian Sam Greenwood earning his sixth career seven-figure score of $1.775M, the Imperial Ballroom at the Atlantis Resort & Casino was still buzzing. Day 1B of the 2019 PCA Main Event was in full swing and, in the afterglow of the PokerStars NL Hold'em Poker Championship, players were eager for one more chance at a huge score to start the year. Along with the Main Event, the superstars of the high roller scene continued to battle it out on the felt - this time in a $50K Single-Day tournament.

  3. The Triton Super High Roller Series returned with a seven-event series this past week, offering some of the best players in the world the ability to compete at the highest stakes offered on the tournament circuit. Live from Jeju, South Korea the live-streamed action did not disappoint as every event featured some of the biggest names in poker battling for career-defining scores. Justin Bonomo Takes Down Event #1 Justin Bonomo continued to do what he does - take down big- buy-in tournaments for massive amounts of money. This time, Bonomo survived the 65-entry field of Event #1: HK$250,000 Short-Deck Ante-Only to claim his first ever recorded short deck cash of $586,000 USD. By besting the star-studded final table that included Ben Lamb, John Juanda, and David Benefield, Bonomo adds the over half-million score to his All-Time Money List leading sum of over $44 million and takes home his first Triton trophy. Event #1 Final Table Payouts: 1. Justin Bonomo - HK$4,600,000 ($586,114) 2. Yeu Wei Hsuang - HK#3,300,000 ($420,473) 3. Sergey Levedev - HK$2,140,000 ($272,671) 4. David Benefield - HK$1,620,000 ($206,414) 5. Tong Siox Choon - HK$1,250,000 ($159,270) 6. Ying Lin Chua - HK$975,000 ($124,231) 7. Ben Lamb - HK$780,000 ($99,385) 8. John Juanda - HK$610,000 ($77,724) Devan Tang Runs Hot In Event #2 Hong Kong high-roller Devan Tang turned a one-outer into over one million dollars by taking down Event #2: HK$500K Short-Deck Ante-Only for over $1.2 million. Earlier in the tournament Tang was in a tough spot on the turn, when his pocket sixes turned a set and he was facing a bet for his tournament life against Mikita Badziakouski’s flopped set of queens. Tang made the call and had one foot on the rail when his 4% came through and the case six hit the river. The one-outer gave Tang new life in the tournament and he rode a wave of run good to help him defeat Peter Jetten heads-up and take home the Triton title. The victory marks the second-highest score in Tang’s career, pushing him to over $6.2 million in career recorded live earnings. Event #2 Final Table Payouts: 1. Devan Tang - HK$9,730,000 ($1,239,758) 2. Peter Jetten - HK$7,040,000 ($897,009) 3. Romain Arnaud - HK$4,540,000 ($578,469) 4. Jason Koon - HK$3,435,000 ($437,674) 5. Isaac Haxton - HK$2,660,000 ($338,926) 6. Leong Chan Wai - HK$2,075,000 ($264,388) 7. Mikita Badziakouski - HK$1,650,000 ($210,236) 8. Paul Phua - HK$1,300,000 ($165,640) Michael Soyza Hits Career-High Cash In Event #3 Malaysia’s Michael Soyza picked up the first seven-figure score of his career by winning Event #3: HK$500,000 No Limit Hold’em Six Handed for $1,420,581 USD. Souya has a pair of obstacles to overcome in order to hit his new career high. The first was a broken left hand he suffered from a recent snowboarding accident two weeks prior to the tournament. The second was a final table full of some of the world’s best players including Jason Koon, Byrn Kenney, Ivan Leow, and eventual runner-up, high stakes crusher, Sam Greenwood. “Feels pretty good, it’s nice to win something,” Soyza said after his victory. “You just play your hands and hopefully it works out well. Win flips, you know? That’s how you do it.” With the new million-dollar score, Soyza soars over $5 million in lifetime recorded cashes. Event #3 Final Table Payouts 1. Michael Soyza - HK$11,150,000 ($1,420,581) 2. Sam Greenwood - HK$8,000,000 ($1,019,251) 3. Ivan Leow - HK$5,200,000 ($662,513) 4. Bryn Kenney - HK$3,921,000 ($499,560) 5. Beh Kok Weng - HK$3,040,000 ($387,315) 6. Jason Koon - HK$2,360,000 ($300,679) Jason Koon Wins His Second Triton Title In Event #5 Superstar high roller Jason Koon is quickly becoming known as the king of Short Deck after taking down his second seven-figure Triton Poker payday in the variant. Koon bested the field of 81 entries, including eventual runner-up and Triton founder Paul Phua, in Event #4: HK$1,000,000 Short Deck Ante Only for a $2,840,945 first place prize. The multi-million dollar score marks the seventh seven-figure cash in Koon’s remarkable career and his second largest haul of all time. With the victory, Koon rises to just under $27M in lifetime earnings ($26.938M). In May 2018, Koon took home the title in the same event during the Triton Super High Roller Series in Montenegro where he won a career-high cash of $3,579,836. To date, over $7.5 million of Koon’s career recorded cashes comes from Short Deck events, making him the unofficial leader of the short deck all-time money leader. Event #5 Final Table Payouts 1. Jason Koon - HK$22,300,000 ($2,840,945) 2. Paul Phua - HK$15,900,000 ($2,025,607) 3. Furkat Rakhimov - HK$10,440,000 ($1,330,021) 4. Jun Wang - HK$7,900,000 ($1,006,434) 5. Gabe Patgorski - HK$6,100,000 ($777,120) 6. Richard Yong - HK$4.700.000 ($598,764) 7. John Juanda - HK$3,700,000 ($471,368) 8. Wai Kin Yong - HK$2,900.000 ($369,450) Timothy Adams Takes Down Main Event Timothy Adams and Byrn Kenney navigated their way through an 'insanely tough' final table of the HK$2Million Triton Jeju Main Event to face off in heads-up play at which time the duo negotiated a deal that locked up career-high cashes for both high rollers. Adams would take home the title of 2019 Triton Jeju Main Event champion and a $3.54 million haul. Kenney also secured just over $3 million for second place. Adams entered the day with the largest stack with Kenney not too terribly far behind him. The rest of the final table, however, needed to find a way to spin up their short stacks. On the first hand of play, Isaac Haxton fell in a clash with Kenney. On the second hand of play, David Peters busted to Peter Jetten. Eventually, Kenney sent both Jetten and Dan Smith, who made a last-minute decision to fly to Asia to play in the Main Event, to the rail. Adams and Kenney secured their multi-million dollar chop and left $500,000 on the table to battle over. Adams ended up on the right side of a cooler for all the chips. Adams, holding [poker card="8d"][poker card="5s"] and Kenney holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="4s"] saw a board run out [poker card="4d"][poker card="3s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"] and in the end, the pair put all the chips in the middle and Adams ended up with the trophy and the half-million on top. While Adams has earned plenty of six-figure paydays, nothing in his career compared to this accomplishment. It’s his first million dollar score and sends his career earnings to over $14 million. Kenney’s lifetime total now surpasses $30 million as he jumped to sixth place on the All-Time Money List. Triton Jeju Main Event Final Table Payouts 1. Timothy Adams - HK$27,760,500* ($3,540,000) 2. Bryn Kenney - HK$24,039,500* ($3,060,000) 3. Dan Smith - HK$10,390,000 ($1,700,000) 4. Peter Jetten - HK$10,390,000 ($1,300,000) 5. David Peters - HK$8,150,000 ($1,040,000) 6. Isaac Haxton - HK$6,300,000 ($803,000) Koon Outduels Chidwick In Event #7 For Second Jeju Victory Red-hot Jason Koon won Event #7: NLHE Triton Refresh for his second victory of the week. The event was supposed to be a two-day affair however organizers and the 25-entry field agreed that the tournament could be completed in one day. The final four players made the money. After Michael Addamo’s departure in fourth place, Paul Phua was looking to get some revenge for Event #5 where he lost heads-up to Koon. It wasn’t meant to be as Chidwick eliminated Phua in third and then the regular high-rollers struck a money deal, leaving only the trophy to play for. Although Koon eventually won the trophy, Chidwick takes home the largest payday of Event #7, locking up $1.13 million in the deal. Koon officially took first place and walked with $973,000. Event #7 Final Table Payouts 1. Jason Koon - HK$7,640,160* ($973,306) 2. Stephen Chidwick - HK$8,858,840 ($1,128,685) 3. Paul Phua - HK$4,200,000 ($535,052) 4. Michael Addamo - HK$2,800,000 ($356,702)
  4. Aaron Zang has done it! On Saturday, he captured the title in poker's richest-ever tournament, winning the £1,050,000 buy-in Triton Million: A Helping Hand for Charity for £13,779,791 in prize money. Zang topped a mixed field of 54 businessmen, recreational players, and the game’s top professionals to capture the title. Entering the Triton Million, Zang, who is known as a high-stakes cash game player, had less than $900,000 in live tournament earnings. Originally set to pay the winner £19,000,000, a heads-up deal was struck between Zang and his final opponent, Bryn Kenney, that saw Zang take £13,779,791 and Kenney take £16,890,509. With a conversion rate that puts Kenney's prize north of $20,400,000, Kenney is now the holder of poker's largest single score from a live tournament. That is rather fitting as Kenney now sits atop poker's all-time money list, as recorded by Hendon Mob, as a result of the finish. Triton Million Results 1st: Aaron Zang - £13,779,791* 2nd: Bryn Kenney - £16,890,509* 3rd: Dan Smith - £7,200,000 4th: Stephen Chidwick - £4,410,000 5th: Vivek Rajkumar - £3,000,000 6th: Bill Perkins - £2,200,000 7th: Alfred DeCarolis - £1,720,000 8th: Timothy Adams - £1,400,000 9th: Wai Leong Chan - £1,200,000 10th: Chin Wei Lim - £1,100,000 11th: Winfred Yu - £1,100,000 *First and second prizes as a result of a heads-up deal. Zang began the third and final day of the tournament in sixth place on the leaderboard with eight players remaining, but the early story of the final table was the demise of Vivek Rajkumar, who entered with a big chip lead over the rest of the field. First, Bill Perkins scored a double through Rajkumar when his pocket nines held up against Rajkumar’s pocket fours on Hand #9. Perkins then doubled again through Rajkumar on Hand #30 when his pocket sevens held up against Rajkumar’s [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Kh"]. Despite the two hits to his stack, Rajkumar maintained his lead. Not too long after Perkins scored his second double up of the day, Zang took his turn doubling through Rajkumar. Both players had the same hand, ace-jack, but it was Zang’s [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jh"] that made a flush against Rajkumar’s [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Jd"] after the board ran out [poker card="Ts"][poker card="8h"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="Th"]. That brought Rajkumar back to the pack and his closest competitor was Kenney, who had rather quietly worked his way up to an eight-figure chip stack. Rajkumar was able to get things moving in the right direction when, on Hand #49, he knocked out Timothy Adams in eighth place. Right after that, on Hand #50, Stephen Chidwick scored a double up through Rajkumar, forcing Rajkumar to give a good chunk of the chips he had just won to someone else. Chidwick used those newly acquired chips to then knock out Alfred DeCarolis on Hand #51, closing out quite the exciting three-hand run of action. Things only got worse for Rajkumar on Hand #56. On the [poker card="Tc"][poker card="9s"][poker card="4h"] flop, Dan Smith held the [poker card="Jh"][poker card="Jc"] to Rajkumar’s [poker card="Th"][poker card="9h"]. All the money went in and it was Smith’s overpair up against Rajkumar’s top two pair. It was a good spot for Rajkumar, but the turn was the [poker card="3d"] and the river the [poker card="Js"] to give Smith the huge double into the chip lead. Rajkumar was knocked down to the second shortest stack with six players remaining. Perkins grabbed another double up through Rajkumar on Hand #66, which knocked Rajkumar down to the bottom of the pack. Rajkumar fought on, though, and it was eventually Perkins who busted in sixth place. Kenney was the one to bust Perkins, holding the [poker card="As"][poker card="Ad"] to Perkins’ [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Td"]. With six players left and the blinds at 150,000-300,000 with a 300,000 big blind ante on Hand #88, Zang shoved all in for 11,375,000 from the small blind with the [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"]. Kenney was in the big blind with a stack of 7,775,000 and called holding the [poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"]. The flop, turn, and river ran out [poker card="Jh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="6d"][poker card="Qs"] and Kenney survived a big sweat to score the double. Rajkumar was next out, busting in fifth place on Hand #91. Like Perkins, Rajkumar also ran into the aces of Kenney. That allowed Kenney to take the chip lead, but it didn’t last long because Zang flopped top two pair versus Kenney’s top pair on Hand #100 and doubled through Kenney. Despite Zang doubling through him, Kenney powered on and began to run away with the lead for some time. It looked like it really was going to be Kenney’s tournament, and even more so after he busted Chidwick in fourth place. Kenney didn’t stop there, busting Smith in third and taking quite a large chip lead into heads-up play. Heads-up play didn’t last too long, but it was the underdog Zang who stormed back in the match. First, Zang found a double up with pocket sixes against Kenney’s [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Qd"] to close the gap. Then, Zang moved into the chip lead after he made a full house and allowed Kenney to bluff off some chips to him. Shortly after that, it was all over. On the final hand, the two found the money in the middle on the [poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"] flop. Kenney had the [poker card="As"][poker card="6s"] for a flush draw, and Zang had the [poker card="8d"][poker card="5d"] for top pair. The turn was the [poker card="9c"] and the river was the [poker card="Kd"] to secure Zang the win.
  5. The 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series wrapped up its festival of high-stakes events in London last week. There were seven events, headlined by the £1,050,000 buy-in Triton Million: A Helping Hand for Charity and several million-dollar scores were had. Chief among them was Bryn Kenney with his £16,890,509 result, that converted to $20,563,324. The monstrous score earned Kenney the largest payday in poker history and put him atop the all-time money list. Kenney wasn’t the only big winner, though. Here’s a look at the biggest winners from the 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series London. Top 20 2019 Triton Poker Series London Money List 1. Bryn Kenney - £16,890,509 ($20,563,324) 2. Aaron Zang - £13,779,491 ($16,775,920) 3. Dan Smith - £7,245,300 ($8,820,778) 4. Stephen Chidwick - £5,383,800 ($6,553,948) 5. Wai Kin Yong - £4,426,695 ($5,386,804) 6. Paul Phua - £3,582,305 (4,359,418) 7. Vivek Rajkumar - £3,000,000 ($3,652,345) 8. Justin Bonomo - £2,871,600 ($3,494,073) 9. Bill Perkins - £2,200,000 ($2,678,386) 10. Timothy Adams - £1,899,000 ($2,311,845) 11. Alfred De Carolis - £1,720,000 ($2,094,011) 12. David Benefield - £1,578,600 ($1,919,582) 13. Chin Lim - £1,561,300 ($1,900,134) 14. Wai Chan- £1,550,300 ($1,887,269) 15. Xu Liang - £1,452,900 ($1,767,878) 16. Ben Heath - £1,393,100 ($1,695,407) 17. Charlie Carrel - £1,321,000 ($1,601,853) 18. Linus Loeliger - £1,284,000 ($1,560,327) 19. Christopher Soyza - £1,242,300 ($1,511,921) 20. Jason Koon - £1,177,500 ($1,428,868) Kenney sits atop the series’ leaderboard thanks to his historic score. An interesting note about the score is that, while it broke the record for poker’s largest single tournament score, it was for a second-place finish in the event. Aaron Zang, who is second on this list, actually won the Triton Million event, but a deal with Kenney allowed Kenney to take more money. As a brief aside, Kenney’s 2019 has been absolutely incredible. He’s won nearly $30,000,000 in 2019 and this year alone would have him ranked #10 on poker’s all-time money list. Of note, Kenney won the Aussie Millions Main Event and was the fifth biggest winner from that entire series. Dan Smith and Stephen Chidwick are third and fourth on the list, respectively, and both placed in this positions in the Triton Million. But unlike Kenney and Zang ahead of them, Smith and Chidwick cashed in more events than just the £1,050,000 headliner. Smith took 15th in the £25,000 6-Handed No Limit Hold’em Turbo event for £45,300 ($55,150). Chidwick cashed in three other events for an additional £973,800 ($1,185,001) on top of the £4,410,000 ($5,368,947) he cashed for in the Triton Million. Chidwick took sixth in the £50,000 Short Deck Ante-Only event, seventh in the £100,000 Triton Main Event, and ninth in the £100,000 Short Deck Main Event. The next two names on the list, Wai Kin Yong and Paul Phua, did not cash in the Triton Million, so their performances over the course of the rest of the series must have been pretty good if they landed this high on the leaderboard. Yong won the £100,000 Triton Main Event for £2,591,695 ($3,154,064), and the player he beat was Phua, who took £2,558,305 ($3,113,429) for second place after the two struck a deal. Yong then took second in the £100,00 Short Deck Main Event for £1,835,000 ($2,232,740). Interestingly enough, Phua also went deep in that one, finishing fourth for £974,500 ($1,185,725). Phua added a third cash to his performance. Timothy Adams found himself as the 10th biggest earner from the series, having cashed a total of three times including once in the Triton Million. Outside of the top 10, David Benefield, Chin Lim, Wai Chan, Jason Koon, and Isaac Haxton also cashed three times at the festival. All told, 24 players cashed for at least $1,000,000 at the series. The 20 listed above were joined by Winfred Yu, Sam Greenwood, Haxton, and Rui Cao as seven-figure winners.
  6. Kahle Burns started Day 3 of the World Series of Poker Europe €25,500 Platinum High Roller as the chip leader and then held off a surging Sam Trickett to win the first bracelet of his career and nearly €600,000. Three players, Alex Foxen, Abdelhakim Zoufri, and Trickett each started the day with less than 15 big blinds and just 20 minutes after the final six players reconvened, one of them was left with zero. Foxen shoved from UTG for 5,950,000 with [poker card="as"][[poker card="jd"] and Trickett called from the big blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="js"]. The board ran out [poker card="kc"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="jh"] to eliminate Foxen in sixth place and given Trickett nearly a full double-up. [ptable zone="NJ Online Poker Promos"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] After starting the day with the shortest stack, Trickett continued to find spots to move up and just 20 minutes later sent another player home early. Working with less than 12 big blinds, Timothy Adams moved all in for 7,075,000 from middle position with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] and Trickett called from the big blind with [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"]. Adams got some extra outs after the [poker card="4c"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop, but the [poker card="js"] turn and [poker card="th"] river were no help and the Canadian bracelet winner was eliminated in fifth. Trickett's run good continued and a three-way all in 30 minutes later sent one player home and provided Trickett with a triple up. Action folded to Burns on the button and he moved all in with [poker card="8s"][poker card="5s"]. Zoufri called all in from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="th"] before Trickett looked down at [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"] in the bid blind and also called all in. Trickett stayed in control through the [poker card="js"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5d"] flop, improved on the [poker card="kc"] turn and dodged Zoufri's gutshot straight draw after the [poker card="2h"] river. Zoufri was out in fourth and Trickett soared past Burns for the first time. Reigning WSOP Main Event champion Hossein Ensan had been relatively quiet while the Sam Trickett Show was on display. Ensan eventually found himself in a hand with Burns that saw his run at a second bracelet end. Ensan raised to 2,000,000 from the button with [poker card="kh"][poker card="qs"] before Burns moved all in from the small blind for 27,775,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"]. Trickett folded his big blind and Ensan called with his tournament life on the line. Neither player's hand improved through the [poker card="8c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3d"] runout and Ensan was eliminated. Heads-up play began with Burns holding a 3-2 chip lead but Trickett won enough on the first two hands of play to take a small lead. That's when Trickett's run good came to an abrupt end, however. After Burns called from the button with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"], Trickett made it 5,000,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"]. Burns made it 12,500,000 to go before Trickett moved all in for 42,000,000. Burns called and then watched the [poker card="jc"][poker card="9h"][poker card="2d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4s"] board leave Trickett on fumes. Trickett was eliminated on the next hand when his [poker card="7s"][poker card="4s"] wasn't able to beat Burns' [poker card="ks"][poker card="4d"] in an all-in pre-flop battle. This marks the third time that Trickett has finished runner-up in a WSOP bracelet event. In 2010, he finished one spot behind Jason DeWitt in a $5,000 No Limit Hold'em event and he famously finished runner-up to Antonio Esfandiari in the inaugural Big One for One Drop in 2012. Burns's previous best finish in a bracelet event came earlier this summer when he finished second in the $10,000 Six Max NLHE event. Final Table Payouts Kahle Burns - €596,883 Sam Trickett - €368,889 Hossein Ensan - €251,837 Abdelhakim Zoufri - €177,062 Timothy Adams - €128,326 Alex Foxen - €95,962 Anton Morgenstern - €74,117 Robert Campbell - €59,189
  7. Kahle Burns is having a helluva week. The 31-year-old Australian was inducted into the Australian Poker Hall of Fame along with Lynn Gilmartin on Monday. on Thursday night, Burns beat reigning Global Poker Index Player of the Year Alex Foxen to win the 2020 Aussie Millions $100K Challenge. The two-day event drew 54 entries for a $3,629,281 US prize pool and the field included the likes of Steve O'Dwyer, Mikita Badziakouski, Sam Greenwood, Stephen Chidwick and 2019 Aussie Millions Main Event champion Bryn Kenney. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="BetMGM NJ"] After Michael Zhang busted on the bubble, Foxen went to work. From UTG, Foxen raised to 160,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] and Timothy Adams called from the small blind with [poker card="qs"][poker card="3s"]. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5s"] and Adams checked. Foxen bet 80,000 and then called after Adams moved all in for 350,000. Adams was unable to make running spades through the [poker card="as"] turn and [poker card="4d"] river and was eliminated in seventh place. Down to just 7.5 big blinds, Sam Grafton moved all in for 610,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="jc"][poker card="9c"]. Kenney called from the big blind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop changed nothing and Grafton missed on the [poker card="5s"] turn and [poker card="3d"] river and was sent packing in sixth. A blind on blind battle lead to the next elimination and gave Burns his first victim of the final table. Michael Soyza moved all in from the small blind for 350,000 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="4h"] and Burns called with [poker card="kc"][poker card="7c"]. Burns stayed ahead through the [poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="th"][poker card="8s"] run out and Soyza was out in fifth place. It didn't take too long for Burns to end another player's run at the title. Foxen raised from the button to 220,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="4c"] before Kenney raised to 975,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"]. From the big blind, Burns moved all-in with [poker card="th"][poker card="ts"]. Foxen folded and Kenney called with his tournament life on the line. The 2019 Aussie Millions Main Event champ was unable to improve his hand on the [poker card="qs"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="qd"][poker card="4d"] runout and he was eliminated in fourth. Burns kept the pressure on and just 20 minutes later, found himself heads up for the title after eliminating yet another player. Burns raised to 210,000 from the button with [poker card="kh"][poker card="7c"], Aaron van Blarcum moved all in for 950,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"] and Burns called. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"] flop left van Blarcum in front as did the [poker card="3h"] turn. The [poker card="5c"] river however gave Burns a straight and eliminated van Blarcum in third place. Those three consecutive eliminations left Burns holding a nearly 4-1 lead over Foxen and it took just a little more than 15 minutes for Burns to collect them all. On the final hand Burns opened from the button to 200,000 holding [poker card="as"][poker card="ts"]. Foxen moved all in for 2,290,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="9s"] and Burns called. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8s"] flop gave Burns second pair. Foxen made third pair on the [poker card="9c"] turn but the [poker card="qd"] river gave Burns the pot and eliminated Foxen. The $1,197,663 score is the second largest of Burns' career, behind only his third place finish in the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series event in Macau in October 2017. According to Hendon Mob, he now has $9,541,399 in lifetime earnings and sits second on the Australian all-time money list behind Joe Hachem. 2020 Aussie Millions $100K Challenge Payouts Kahle Burns - $1,197,663 Alex Foxen - $762,334 Aaron van Blarcum - $508,099 Bryn Kenney - $399,221 Michael Soyza - $290,342 Sam Grafton - $254,050 Timothy Adams- $217,572
  8. Any conversation about who the best high roller poker player in the world that doesn't include Stephen Chidwick is wasted energy. Chidwick proved it again this week by winning the inaugural Australian Poker Open Championship against some of the toughest fields in recent memory. On his way to the title, Chidwick cashed in three of the seven APO events, including a win, a runner-up finish and very important Main Event min-cash. All told, Chidwick earned won $949,000 (AUD). Mike Watson Opens Things With a Win The opening event of the APO, a $10,000 No Limit Hold'em event, drew 59 entries with Canadian pro Mike Watson beating all of them to win $177,000 and take the early lead in the Australian Poker Open Championship. "I'm thrilled to have won it," Watson said. "Especially in these series, it's great to get off to a good start and set the tone, get your confidence high, and try to make a run for that player of the series title. It's also the first live event I've won a little while, so that monkey's off my back." A pair of Australian's filled the other two spots on the podium. Michael O'Grady finished second for $118,000 and Benjamin Shannon came in third for $82,600. Other players who picked up a cash were Orpen Kisacikoglu, Ben Lamb, Luc Greenwood, Andras Nemeth, and Elio Fox. Event #1 Payouts Mike Watson - $177,000 Michael O'Grady - $118,000 Benjamin Shannon - $82,600 Orpen Kisacikoglu - $59,000 Jamie Lee - $47,200 Andras Nemeth - $35,400 Elio Fox - $29,500 Ben Lamb - $23,600 Luc Greenwood - $17,700 Former #1 PocketFiver Andras Nemeth Wins Event #2 After finishing sixth in the opening event, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Andras Nemeth beat out the 42 other entries in Event $2, $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha, but still couldn't ascend to the very top of the Australian Poker Open Championship standings. "It's nice to not only play one thing, so that keeps me motivated, but I also love to play poker and that keeps me motivated and my fiancée is my biggest motivation," Nemeth said. "She, and our families, are very supportive and she travels with me to big events and that makes a big difference for me." Nemeth beat Najeem Ajez heads-up to claim the $146,200 first place prize and 300 APO points while Ajez took home $93,600 and 210 points. Nemeth had 340 points. Unfortunately for Nemeth, Watson actually extended his Championship lead, finishing third for $64,500 and 150 points to bump his two-event total to 450. Others who managed to pick up a cash in this event were Sean Winter, Chino Rheem, and Poker Hall of Famer Erik Seidel. Event #2 Payouts Andras Nemeth - $146,200 Najeem Ajez - $93,600 Mike Watson - $64,500 Joni Jouhkimainen - $43,000 Sean Winter - $34,400 Erik Seidel - $25,800 Chino Rheem - $21,500 Timothy Adams Beats Stephen Chidwick for Event #3 Title Chidwick's march towards the APO Championship began in earnest in Event #3, a $25,000 No Limit Hold'em event with 49 entries. Chidwick managed to outlast all of them except one. Canadian Timothy Adams beat Chidwick heads-up to earn $416,500 and 300 points. "This final table was really tough with all guys I'm used to playing against," Adams said." At the high stakes you play mainly against all the same players and those guys are all really great and I'm very happy that I won. To win a tournament a lot of things have to go your way and today that happened to me." Chidwick picked up a $269,500 score and his first 210 APO Championship points. Australian Andy Lee ended up with a $183,850 payday. Also cashing in this event was Steve O'Dwyer, Orpen Kisacikoglu, and for the second time in two events, Chino Rheem posted a seventh place finish. Event #3 Payouts Timothy Adams - $416,500 Stephen Chidwick - $269,500 Andy Lee - $183,750 Steve O'Dwyer - $122,500 Orpen Kisacikoglu - $98,000 Aaron Van Blarcum - $73,500 Chino Rheem - $61,250 Farid Jattin Stays Hot with $25K PLO Victory Farid Jattin has had himself an amazing start to 2020. Just one week after winning the Aussie Millions $25K Challenge and finishing runner-up in the Aussie Millions $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha event, Jattin topped the 29-player field in Event #4, a #25,000 PLO event. "I came from Melbourne with a nice win and today I came in with a big chip lead and I'm lucky that things worked out again," Jattin said. "Today was a special situation because all their stacks were very even, and I could apply a lot of pressure on them. This favored me a lot, but there's a lot of luck in PLO, but it felt like I played flawlessly and I'm happy with my performance." Runner-up Jouhkimainen ended up pocketing $188,500 while third place finisher George Wolff earned $116,000. The APO Championship lead changed hands after this event. Nemeth ended up in fourth place and added 120 points to his total to move past Watson by 30 points. Event #4 Payouts Farid Jattin - $290,000 Joni Jouhkimainen - $188,500 George Wolff - $116,000 Andras Nemeth - $72,500 Alex Foxen - $58,000 Stephen Chidwick Beats Erik Seidel for $25K NLHE Win Chidwick took the APO Championship lead in dramatic fashion after beating Seidel heads-up in Event #5, $25,000 NLHE. The $399,500 winner's share also added 300 APO Championship points to his total to move him past Nemeth. Following the win, Chidwick talked about the Open Championship format and how he always seems to do well in them. "I really like this format of playing a week of tournaments, one every day, and battling against some of the best players to see who can run the best," Chidwick said. "It also feels nice to be in contention for the Australian Poker Open title, it seems like I'm in contention in most of these series that I play." Seidel earned $258,500 while Seth Davies banked $176,250 for his bronze medal performance. Also cashing in this event were Michael Addamo, Jorryt van Hoof, Matthias Eibinger, and Jattin. Event #5 Payouts Stephen Chidwick - $399,500 Erik Seidel - $258,500 Seth Davies - $176,250 Michael Addamo - $117,500 Jorryt van Hoof - $94,000 Farid Jattin - $70,500 Matthias Eibinger - $58,750 Canadian Luc Greenwood Ships Event #6 It wouldn't be a high roller series if at least one of the Greenwood brothers didn't ship something. Luc Greenwood did the family proud by besting the 35-player field in Event #6, a $50,000 NLHE event. Greenwood earned $700,000 for the win. "I was having a really rough trip to Australia so far with only one min-cash so far," Green admitted after his win. "This was a tough field and a big battle, and even though it looked like I was gonna run away with it three-handed, I really had to fight for it and I'm glad that I won. I think I played quite well overall." Mikita Badziakouski finished in second for $455,000 while Nemeth added $280,000 in earnings and another 150 Championship points to his total to move past Chidwick for the lead. Nemeth had 630 points while Chidwick had 510. Rheem picked up a third APO cash by coming in fourth place while Addamo earned a min-cash of $140,00 for coming in fifth. Event #6 Payouts Luc Greenwood - $700,000 Mikita Badziakouski - $455,000 Andras Nemeth - $280,000 Chino Rheem - $175,000 Michael Addamo - $140,000 Michael Addamo Wins Main Event, Stephen Chidwick Earns Championship Michael Addamo did his native Australia proud in the $100,000 Main Event, topping the 28-player field to win $1,288,000. That win was overshadowed however by Chidwick's fourth place finish which propelled him to the Championship victory. Aaron Van Blarcum finished in second for $784,000 while two-time reigning GPI Player of the Year Alex Foxen finished in third for $448,000. Chidwick rounded out the in-the-money finishers, coming in fourth place for $280,000 and 140 Championship points - enough to push him past Nemeth at the last possible moment. “Hopefully these style of events continue because I think it’s a bit more of an achievable accolade to win a multiple of or, over time, determine who the best player is rather than looking at a single tournament," Chidwick said. "Obviously there’s a lot of luck involved in this too, but over the course of seven, eight, or ten events you’re going to see the better players win more often and it would be fun to see who can collect the most titles like this.” Chidwick adds the Australian Poker Open title to the US Poker Open Championships that he earned in 2018. “I would love to complete the collection, get the whole set,” Chidwick said. In 2019, Chidwick finished second to Sam Soverel in the British Poker Open. Australian Poker Open Main Event Payouts Michael Addamo - $1,288,000 Aaron Van Blarcum - $784,000 Alex Foxen - $448,000 Stephen Chidwick - $280,000 Australian Poker Open Championship Standings Stephen Chidwick - 650 Andras Nemeth - 630 Michael Addamo- 560 Mike Watson - 450 Luc Greenwood - 360 Farid Jattin - 360 Joni Jouhkimainen - 330 Aaron Van Blarcum - 305 Timothy Adams - 300 Erik Seidel - 270
  9. As the live poker tournament comes to a halt for the foreseeable future in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the last high profile event to wrap up featured a winner putting on a repeat performance. Timothy Adams beat Christoph Vogelsang to win the Super High Roller Bowl Russia for $3.6 million. It was just 41 days ago that Adams beat Kahle Burns to win the Super High Roller Bowl Australia for $1.4 million. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] SHRB Russia drew 40 entries and just seven players returned for the final day of play in Sochi on Sunday. Ben Heath started the day with the chip lead while Adams was right in the middle of the pack. Only six players were getting paid, and it took just 45 minutes for the bubble to burst with Stephen Chidwick being eliminated in seventh place. Once Chidwick was out, it was just 10 minutes before the first player was sent to the cashier cage. Vogelsang raised to 60,000 from the cutoff and Ivan Leow called from the button. The flop came [poker card="qh"][poker card="7h"][poker card="3d"] and Vogelsang bet 55,000. Leow moved all-in for 300,000 and Vogelsang called. Leow turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="7c"] but got bad news when Vogelsang showed [poker card="qd"][poker card="7d"]. Neither the [poker card="ts"] turn or [poker card="kc"] river were any help for Leow and he was out in sixth place. Five-handed play lasted just over an hour before a battle of the blinds ended with an elimination. Heath raised to XXX,000 from the small blind before Adrian Mateos moved all-in for 1,000,000 from the big. Heath called and showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"] and Mateos turned over [poker card="2c"][poker card="2d"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] flop left Mateos needing one of two deuces. The [poker card="9h"] turn ended all of that though as Heath made a full house. The [poker card="8d"] river completed the board and Mateos exited in fifth place. The four remaining players battled for another five hours without a single elimination. Another blind versus blind situation finally broke that stalemate. Vogelsang and Mikita Badziakouski folded before Heath moved all-in for 1,200,000 and Adams called. Heath turned over [poker card="qs"][poker card="6s"] and Adams had a small edge with [poker card="as"][poker card="2d"]. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="td"][poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"][poker card="5c"] to bust Heath in fourth. Just 20 minutes later, Badziakouski's run ended. Adams folded the button and Vogelsang raised to 1,500,000 and Badziakouski called all-in and turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"] which put him ahead of Vogelsang's [poker card="jh"][poker card="3h"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"][poker card="3s"] flop changed everything and left Badziakouski drawing thin. The [poker card="8s"] turn gave Badziakouski some outs to stay alive but the [poker card="4c"] river was a complete brick, eliminating the Belarusian poker pro in third place. When heads-up play started, Vogelsang held 55% of the chips in play. Over the next two hours both players took turns with the chip lead. As play wore on, the pair agreed to skip a level and just 20 minutes later, Adams put the finishes touches on his victory. Adams completed from the small blind but Vogelsang responded by moving all in for 3,700,000 and Adams snap-called. Vogelsang showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"] but was dominated by Adams' [poker card="ah"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="th"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2d"][poker card="jh"][poker card="9d"] runout kept Adams ahead and even improved his hand to a pair of nines on the river to eliminate Vogelsang. Super High Roller Bowl Russia Payouts Timothy Adams - $3,600,000 Christoph Vogelsang - $2,400,000 Mikita Badziakouski - $1,600,000 Ben Heath - $1,000,000 Adrian Mateos - $800,000 Ivan Leow - $600,000

The $51,000 Main Event awarded a $1.097 million first-place prize and Alexandros Kolonias won the final event to win the Championship Leaderboard and Purple Jacket.
