  1. The World Poker Tour continues Season XVII of the WPT Main Tour on Friday, November 23, with the start of the WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The venue is home to the largest WPT Main Tour event in history, and this season’s event comes with a $2 million guarantee on the prize pool. The WPT RRPO $3,500 Championship runs November 23-28 and features two starting flights and unlimited reentry is allowed through the first nine levels. Per standard WPT Main Tour structure, players begin with 40,000 in chips, a big blind ante will be used, and the Action Clock will be entered into play once the field is one table off the money. Players will play 60-minute levels on Day 1 and Day 2 before the levels are kicked up to 90 minutes on Day 3 and Day 4. The final table of the event will be live streamed on WPT.com on Wednesday, November 28. WPT Events at Seminole Known for Huge Fields and Big Payouts The addition of the Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open to the World Poker Tour schedule is new, but the WPT has plenty of history with the host property, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, especially when it comes to $3,500 buy-in events. In addition to being home to the largest WPT Main Tour field in history, $3,500 buy-in WPT events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino have an average field size of 1,278 entries over the last seven. In those seven events, nearly $29 million in total prize money has been awarded, for an average prize pool of more than $4.1 million. The winner of that largest WPT Main Tour event in history was Eric Afriat, who topped an enormous field of 1,795 entries in the Season XII WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. The now two-time WPT champion Afriat won $1.081 million in that event. Other past champions of World Poker Tour events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino include Darryll Fish, Ryan Riess, Justin Young, Chino Rheem, and Taylor von Kriegenbergh. Von Kriegenbergh won the WPT event at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with the largest first-place prize in history. He took down the Season IX WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown for $1.122 million. Ruberto Leads Hublot WPT Player of the Year Race Heading In With a large field anticipated for the event, one of the storylines heading in is that of the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race for Season XVII. Two-time WPT champion Tony Ruberto currently leads with 1,800 points. Ruberto won his second World Poker Tour title this season when he captured the WPT Maryland at Live! Casino crown. He also made the final table of WPT Choctaw, placing fourth. In second place behind Ruberto is Erkut Yilmaz with 1,250 points, and then it’s Patrick Serda, Simon Lam, and Brady Holiman rounding out the top five with 1,200 points each. As the WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open $3,500 Championship has a $2 million guarantee on the prize pool, a minimum of 1,200 points will be awarded to the winner. Minimums of 1,000 points and 900 points will go to second and third places, respectively. The winner of the Hublot WPT Player of the Year for Season XVII will earn a $15,000 WPT Passport for buy-ins across the tour and a special Hublot watch. Appetizing Side Events During Championship During the dates of the Season XVII WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open $3,500 Championship, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has three side events with buy-ins above $1,650. First is the $1,650 Deep Stack Purple Chip Bounty tournament that comes with a $100,000 guarantee. This event runs November 25-26. On November 26, the $5,000 Eight-Handed tournament kicks off. It is scheduled as a one-day tournament with a $250,000 guarantee. Also starting on November 26 is the $2,200 Deep Stack PLO tournament that is scheduled for two days and allows reentry. Thousands Already Showing Up This year’s Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open is already off to an impressive start. The opening event of the series, the $360 Deep Stack Reentry tournament that boasted a $1 million guarantee, attracted 4,558 entries and generated a guarantee-busting prize pool of $1.367 million. The event was won by Texas’ Trung Pham for $123,364 after a seven-way deal at the final table.
  2. It's getting to the point where Stephen Chidwick winning a U.S. Poker Open event isn't news. Tuesday night in Las Vegas the British poker pro picked up his fourth career USPO title, beating Cary Katz heads up to win Event #6, the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. It's his second USPO win in 2019 giving him two wins in each year the tournament series has existed. Chidwick, who won the USPO title last season, now leads the overall standings this year with just four events remaining. Chidwick started Tuesday's final table with the chip lead and, along with Anthony Zinno, was one of just two players with a seven-figure stack. While Chidwick continued to build early, Zinno was less fortunate. After a little more than an hour of play, Zinno was down to just 365,000 and found himself tangling with Katz. Chidwick raised to 90,000 and Katz called before Zinno moved all in from the button. Chidwick folded and Katz called, tabling [poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"][poker card="th"][poker card="5c"]. Zinno was ahead with [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"][poker card="jh"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"] flop was a relatively safe one for Zinno. The [poker card="2c"] turn gave Katz a flush draw which came in on the [poker card="7c"] river to eliminate Zinno in sixth place. Chidwick then put his big stack to work 20 minutes to send Sean Rafael to the rail. Chidwick opened to 90,000 before Rafael made it 290,000. Chidwick called and the two players saw a [poker card="9d"][poker card="6c"][poker card="6d"] flop. Rafael bet 155,000 all in and Chidwick called. Rafael tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"][poker card="ts"] but Chidwick showed [poker card="tc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"] for trips. Neither the [poker card="3h"] turn or [poker card="qh"] river were any help and Rafael was out in fifth. Katz then picked up another elimination just 30 minutes later. Katz limped his button, Ben Lamb completed from the small blind and Tom Marchese checked his option. The [poker card="as"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5c"] flop got Lamb bet pot. Marchese folded but Katz repotted and Lamb called all in. Katz turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="8d"] while Lamb was drawing with [poker card="kh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="5h"] turn was no help for Lamb and after the [poker card="8h"] river failed to complete his draw, Lamb was eliminated in fourth place. Marchese actually started the day as the shortest stack but managed to outlast three other players before meeting his fate. Katz completed from the button and Marchese raised to 240,000 from the small blind. Chidwick folded and Katz called. After the [poker card="jc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"] flop, Marchese bet 600,000 and Katz responded by repotting and Marchese called his last 240,000. Marchese tabled [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"][poker card="js"][poker card="5s"] while Katz was drawing wiht [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"]. The [sc] ended all the drama, completing Katz's flush draw. The meaningless river was the [poker card="6c"] and Marchese was out in third. Thanks to those last two eliminations, Katz began heads up play with 65% of the chips in play. Chidwick and Katz played heads-up for nearly two hours with the lead being traded back and forth before Chidwick finally put a cap on another USPO win. Down to just 3.5 big blinds, Katz moved all in for 410,000 after Chidwick had opened with a pot-size bet of 360,000. Chidwick called and turned up [poker card="as"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4h"] which put him behind Katz' [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"][poker card="js"][poker card="3d"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="6c"] gave Chidwick a wheel and eliminate Katz. Final Table Payouts Stephen Chidwick - $351,000 Cary Katz - $234,000 Tom Marchese - $156,000 Ben Lamb - $97,500 Sean Rafael - $78,000 Anthony Zinno - $58,500 Chidwick now has four USPO wins and nine final tables over 14 events stretching the last two years. He now sits atop the USPO leaderboard and is 100 points clear of his nearest competitor, Sean Winter. USPO Top 10 After Event #6 PLAYER CASHES PRIZE MONEY POINTS 1. Stephen Chidwick 4 $705,950 540 2.

  3. The 2019 U.S. Poker Open got underway on Wednesday with 90 players flocking to the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas to take part in Event #1: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em. Even though it’s a brand new year and a brand new series, at least one thing remains the same: Stephen Chidwick plans on dominating at the USPO. Chidwick, the defending USPO champion bested a stacked final table, which included regular high roller Sean Winter and former November Niner Joseph Cheong. Chidwick eliminated four of his final five opponents in under three and half hours, earning $216,000 for his efforts. Final Table Results 1. Stephen Chidwick - $216,000 2. Sean Winter - $157,500 3. Joseph Cheong - $112,500 4. Joseph Cappello - $90,000 5. Lazaro Hernandez - $72,000 6. Joseph Orsino - $54,000 About an hour into the final table, the first player hit the rail when Joseph Orsino clashed with Cheong. Cheong raised from the cutoff holding the [poker card="ac"][poker card="th"] and Orsino made the call from the big blind with the [poker card="qd"][poker card="tc"]. The flop of [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"][poker card="ts"] almost guaranteed action as both players flopped two pair. Orsino checked his bottom two pair over to Cheong. Cheong fired a bet and Orsino promptly check-raised. With the action back to Cheong, he moved all in and Orsino, who was covered, made the call with his tournament life on the line. The turn was the [poker card="7c"] and the river was the [poker card="9s"], ending Orsino’s USPO run in sixth place for $54,000. Lazaro Hernandez was the next player to fall. After losing a big hand to Chidwick, where Chidwick flopped a straight and doubled through him, Hernandez was crippled to under 10 big blinds. Holding the [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"] on the button, Hernandez pushed all in and was called by Chidwick in the small blind with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"]. Dominated, Hernandez was going to need some help to survive but the [poker card="4d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="6h"] provided very little. The turn was the [poker card="qh"], leaving Hernandez looking for one of the remaining tens. The river was the [poker card="3c"] to give the hand to Chidwick and send Hernandez home in fifth place for $72,000. Joseph Cappello and Cheong played a big pot where Capello’s pocket sevens flipped against Cheong’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"]. Cheong flopped two pair and held in the hand, sending Cappello to the bottom of the chip counts. Ten minutes later, he found a hand to move his final three big blinds in with. From the button, Cappello shipped it in with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="2h"] and, once again, Chidwick was there in the small blind, making a call with the dominating hand of the [poker card="ah"][poker card="4d"]. Although many boards might facilitate a chop, the [poker card="6h"][poker card="tc"][poker card="4c"] flop put Chidwick way ahead. The [poker card="8c"] turn gave Cappello flush outs, but the [poker card="kh"] river was no help. Cappello hit the rail in fourth place for $90,000, helping him to more than $2.4 million in lifetime earnings. After that elimination, the tournament sped to a conclusion with Chidwick continuing his dominance and taking out his final two dangerous opponents in short order. First, it was Cheong. Chidwick opened from the button with the [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"] and Cheong three-bet shipped all in with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="2h"]. Chidwick made the call, again dominating his opponent. The flop came [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"][poker card="6c"], the [poker card="3c"] turn took away any chance of running hearts for Cheong, and the [poker card="5c"] river ended Cheong’s tournament in third place. He collected $112,500 for his seventh recorded cash of 2019. Finally, Sean Winter and Chidwick, a pair of regulars on the high-roller circuit, got down to the business of playing heads-up. It was not a long battle, however, as the pair got all the chips in the middle in short order. Chidwick limped holding the [poker card="7d"][poker card="5d"] and Winter put in a raise with the [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"]. Chidwick made the call and the pair saw a flop of [poker card="9s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="ks"]. Winter continued and Chidwick, with a gutshot straight draw, made the call. Then the [poker card="8s"] hit the turn. Winter bet his new set, Chidwick, with the chip lead, shipped over the top with his made straight. Winter made the call but needed the board to pair in order to continue the tournament. The [poker card="3h"] river did not improve Winter’s hand and he finished the event in second place, taking home $157,500 for his efforts. Stephen Chidwick, the reigning, defending USPO Champion, took down Event #1 for $216,000. It was his third career USPO tournament title and, with the win, he took the early lead in the race to repeat as USPO champion and take home the additional $100,000 prize.
