  1. It’s a brand new year for the online grinders in the Regulated States of America and an early snapshot of the U.S.A. Online Poker Rankings finds some new names challenging the familiar faces for their spot in the top-10. David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (6,027 PLB points) retains the top spot in the U.S.A. thanks to an impressive string of PLB-qualified cashes to kick-off 2021. The New Jersey online grinder picked up wins in the January 4 edition of the WSOP.com $15,000 Weekly Sunday Deepstack for $7,705 and 170.51 PLB points and the January 6 edition of the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday for $7,611 and another 156.68 PLB points. He picked up another 164.58 PLB points with his January 8 victory in the WSOP.com $20,000 Weekly Thursday which was good for another $9,480. So far this year, Coleman has logged seven top-three finishes (four of which were outright wins) and nine four-figure scores. He is currently ranked #57 in the world, down just a few spots from his career-high ranking of #50 where he sat in late 2020. Challenging Coleman for the #1 ranking in the U.S. is Alexander ‘Veruz’ Butcher (5,707 PLB points). The up-and-coming Butcher is originally from Michigan but is currently playing out of New Jersey and he has been making his presence felt in the U.S. regulated online sites over the past six months. Butcher had a tremendous December which included capturing his current career-high online score of $38,256 and 416.66 PLB points when he took down the $1,000 buy-in WSOP.com $75,000 Sunday High Roller on December 14. Two weeks later he made a deep run in the WPT Online Poker Open Main Event in which he finished in 15th place for another $13,115. The big scores continued for Butcher when the New Year arrived. On January 11 he booked the win in the WSOP.com $50,000 Weekly Sunday for $24,223 and 291.54 PLB points, the second-highest online score of his career. As recently as January 16, Butcher found himself in the winner’s circle yet again on WSOP.com in the $15,000 Weekly Friday as he added $6,757 to his bankroll, and pushed his lifetime total recorded cashes to just over $830,000. All of his hard work paid off by helping him break into online poker’s top-100 worldwide rankings. Butcher currently sits at #70, down a few spots from his all-time high of #57. To reach the #2-spot, Butcher had to get past perennial top-ranked U.S. grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (5,226 PLB points). Kwon was recently named the WSOP.com 2020 Player of the Year and earned himself a $10,000 cash prize as well as a package that includes a set in a $1K online event in the 2021 World Series of Poker. Kwon’s spotlight scores from the last month include a victory in the December 16 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $24,844 and 295.48 PLB points and a runner-up finish in the December 20 PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for another $4,757 and 115.58 PLB points. Kwon put a bow on his 2020 with a win in the WSOP.com $25,000 Weekly Monday on December 29 for $10,047 and 189.43 PLB points. So far in 2021 has continued his trademark grind, racking up six four-figure cashes with two wins. [table id=163 /]
  2. In what is seen as a big win for interstate online poker, the First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission in their case against the U.S. Department of Justice and its revised opinion of the Wire Act. As originally reported by OnlinePokerReport.com, the ruling upholds the decision of a lower court that the reinterpretation of the Wire Act by the Department of Justice in 2018 is incorrect. In that revised opinion, the DOJ sought to expand the coverage of the Wire Act beyond sports betting to include all forms of gambling which included lotteries and online poker. The Wire Act of 1961 was originally enacted to prohibit the use of "wire communication" to assist in the interstate placing bets or wagers (or the collection of earnings) in any "sporting event or contest." In 2011, the DOJ released an opinion that events and activities that fall outside of the "sporting event" wording are outside of the Wire Act's purview. Then, in 2018, the DOJ reversed itself and attempted to extend the law's coverage. The appellate court’s decision is a potential boom for online poker in the United States. Even though online poker was not at the forefront of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission’s case, the industry should benefit providing the decision stands. It clears up the legality of whether states that legalize online poker, as Pennsylvania and Michigan have recently done, can join or create their own interstate network as Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware have already done with WSOP.com being the first and only network to date to take advantage of the opportunity. In addition to opening the gates for new states to join an interstate network, it also reinforces that what has already been established can continue to grow. Prior to the 2019 World Series of Poker, organizers were unclear if players in New Jersey would be allowed to participate in online bracelet events as they had in year's past due to the language in the DOJ’s 2018 interpretation. After an initial loss in federal court about the Wire Act, the DOJ let it be known that they would not start enforcing on other forms of gambling until 2020 at the earliest. Now, the decision by the First Circuit Court of Appeals leaves the DOJ, should it choose to proceed, the final option of appealing to the Supreme Court of the United States. Given the current political landscape, the DOJ may choose not to do this in which case the lawsuit would be complete and the interpretation nullified. The Supreme Court may also opt not to hear the case which would be an end to matters as well. The new presidential administration will likely be a factor as well. According to Bloomberg News Network, President Biden is on record as not supporting the DOJ’s Wire Act expansion. Additionally, as reported by CDC Gaming Reports, back in December 2019 the Biden campaign issued a statement saying that Biden “doesn’t support adding unnecessary restrictions to the gaming industry like the Trump Administration has done.” With this being the likely end of the line for the case, players in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware are likely to see some new screen names at the tables as online poker in the U.S. prepares to expand in 2021.
  3. The World Series of Poker has announced its new 2021 season of the WSOP Online Circuit Series. In light of the challenges of scheduling live events in face of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the WSOP has expanded its online schedule on WSOP.com to cover the entire year and offer players the opportunity to win more than 180 WSOP gold rings. The WSOP.com shared player pool in Nevada and New Jersey will be offered monthly Circuit series. Eight of these will feature 12 gold ring events with another four “Super Circuits” expanded to 18 events. In an attempt to capture some of the same benefits of grinding the WSOPC live events, the new online season will also feature cumulative and monthly leaderboards with added prizes as an incentive for those who succeed in racking up results in multiple WSOP Online Circuit events. “Players deserve great tournaments and great value year-round and that’s what we aim to do with the 2021 WSOP Online Circuit Series,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart in the announcement. “We’ve been thrilled with the big prize pools for the WSOP.com events in 2020, and we only expect to see that grow with the new model.” Over the course of the year, the WSOP Online Circuit Series will offer players more than $600,000 in additional prize money through a variety of promotions. One of the biggest promotions arrives at the end of the year. The season-ending $250,000 WSOP Online Circuit Championship will be capped at 256 runners filled with the year’s most successful Online Circuit players. Seats can be earned by winning one of the gold ring events or by earning a spot through one of the other accompanying promotions including the $10,000 WSOP.com Circuit Player of the Month or a Second Chance Fast Forward freeroll. Additionally, players who finish the year inside the top 50 of the Cumulative Circuit Leaderboard, but who have not qualified through any other avenue, will also be eligible for the Championship event. Another $300,000 will be disbursed throughout the year in a series of $25,000 WSOP Circuit Stars Monthly Freerolls. Players who win a gold ring event that month, as well as those in the top 10 of the WSOP.com Circuit Player of the Month leaderboard, will make up the small field eligible to pick up a piece of the additional $25,000 As well as entry into the $25,000 Circuit Stars Monthly Freeroll, the top 10 players on the Circuit Player of the Month leaderboard will share $10,000 worth of tournament tickets. Points are accumulated by cashing in Gold Ring events with the leaderboard winner each month earning a seat to the Championship event. The monthly Second Chance Fast Forward freeroll rewards players who play in multiple events, whether they cash or not. Players who play in a minimum of four WSOP Online Circuit events in a given series will be entered into the “winner take all” freeroll where the last player standing will be admitted to the WSOP Online Circuit Series Championship. Also of note, the WSOP announced that in addition to the 12 events taking place on WSOP.com in Nevada and New Jersey, a 13th event is penciled in for “the pending launch of the WSOP.com service in a newly regulated market.” This looks like an indicator of a 2021 arrival of WSOP.com in Pennsylvania where PokerStars has already been operating for over a year. The WSOP has also teamed up with official casino partners who will provide promotional rates for players who wish to travel to play in the events. In addition to co-branding the events with the property names, players can opt to buy-in and cash out at the onsite cage. The new WSOP Online Circuit Series gets underway on January 14 with the start of the 18-event Winter Online Super Circuit. WSOP Online Circuit 2021 Season [table id=152 /]
  4. 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. Final Table Payouts [table id=143 /]
  5. The 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event continued on Sunday as United States-based players located in Nevada and New Jersey took their shot at the lone $10,000 buy-in Day 1 flight on WSOP.com in a bid to become the next WSOP World Champion. At the end of 12 hours of play, the field of 705 players had just 71 remaining and three-time WSOP bracelet winner Upeshka De Silva emerged as the overnight chip leader with 1,930,067 in chips. He is followed by ‘vforvictoria’ who sits in a close second place with 1,792,716 in chips and ‘Samthedog76’ who rounds out the top three with 1,529,044 in chips. The healthy field size propelled the prize pool to $6,768,000, far-and-away the largest prize pool in regulated U.S. online poker history. And just like the international portion of the Main Event which held its opening flights on GGPoker, both the first and second-place finishers will be guaranteed paydays of more than $1 million dollars. Final Table Payouts [table id=143 /] The U.S.-based field featured plenty of big-time poker stars and previous WSOP bracelet winners. But at the end of a full 12 hours of play, just 71 from the Day 1 field still had a shot at making the final table which is set to play out live at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino on December 28. The tournament got underway at 12:00 noon local time (3:00 pm ET) with players set to play 22 full 30-minute levels. And while it would take nearly all of the 12-hour day before the final 107 players made the money, the first elimination came swiftly - just a few hands into the tournament. In a classic set-up hand, Chris ‘Pay_Son’ Staats found himself with pocket aces and ‘ATOWNLEWIS’ woke up with pocket kings. After a preflop raising war, all their chips made it into the middle with Staats’ aces holding up and 'ATOWNLEWIS's day ending early. But it wasn’t long before ‘ATOWNLEWIS’ had some company on the rail, as plenty of notable names busted well before the money. Chris Hunichen, Aaron Mermelstein, James Carroll, and 15-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth all made their exits in the first half of the day. Of course, Hellmuth was by no means the only previous bracelet winner unable to advance to Day 2. Phil Galfond, Eric Baldwin, Nathan Gamble, Michael Gagliano, Brandon Adams, Ben Yu, Chance Kornuth, Mike Matusow, Connor Drinan, Michael Mizrachi, as well as former #1-ranked pros Bryan Piccioli, Calvin Anderson, and Shaun Deeb were among those that will have to wait until next year to add to their gold bracelet totals. Daniel Negreanu’s bid for a seventh bracelet, as well as cashing in on a number of $100,000 bracelet bets, came to an end as well. Soon after Adrian ‘Partee’ Buckley had the unfortunate distinction of bubbling the Main Event, when his [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"] lost to ‘Samthedog76’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"] in heartbreaking fashion on a [poker card="7h"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"][poker card="th"] runout, Negreanu himself busted out of the tournament, collecting a min-cash of $14,890. Joining Negreanu in surviving the bubble, but not the day included Ian Steinman (105th, $14,890), Jed Hoffman (102nd, $14,890), Matt Affleck (97th, $14,890), Lauren Roberts (88th, $15,566), David Coleman (76th, $15,566) and eight-time WSOP Circuit Ring and gold bracelet winner Michael Lech (74th, $15,566). While many notable names are no longer in the hunt for the 2020 title, there are plenty of players to keep an eye on when play resumes. Taylor Von Krigenbergh and Galen Hall both have top-ten stacks. Fan favorites Nick Shulman, Jason Somerville, and Maria Ho are all still in the running with plenty of chips, and four-time World Poker Tour champion Darren Elias along with 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Ryan Riess are also still in the hunt. The remaining players return to WSOP.com at noon on Monday to play down to the final nine players who will determine a winner, live, on December 28 at the Rio in Las Vegas. At the same time the final eight players in the 2020 GGPoker World Series of Poker Main Event are preparing to play down to a winner on Tuesday, December 15 at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. The winner of both the international and the U.S. tournaments will then meet in a heads-up match, with $1 million added, on December 30 at the Rio in Las Vegas to determine the 2020 champion. Top Ten Chip Counts [table id=144 /]
  6. The recent announcement from the World Series of Poker of a hybrid online-live event that will crown the 2020 WSOP Main Event champion has drawn strong reactions from the poker community. Many players were quick to question the safety of holding a live event in Las Vegas given the current status of the global pandemic while others had questions about the confusion over the status of the title of the "Main Event champion". The new event, which has a $10,000 buy-in and will run on WSOP.com in New Jersey and Nevada and GGPoker.com in international markets, is a freezeout event similar in format to the traditional annual WSOP Main Event. With COVID-19 restrictions around the world making a traditional live Main Event impossible, the WSOP created a hybrid format The final nine players from the NJ/NV online event will travel to Las Vegas to play down to a winner while the final nine players from the international market will travel to Rozvadov, Czechia to play down to a winner. Those final two players will then meet for a heads-up match in Las Vegas with $1 million on the line. This follows a summer in which WSOP organizers held 85 bracelet events across the two online poker sites. The news was initially greeted with a mixed reaction from the poker community. Veteran pro David 'ODB' Baker tweeted his support for the idea and pushed back against some of the backlash directed at the WSOP for extending its brand even further. According to Stewart, each of the nine players who make the live final table in Las Vegas for American players will be subjected to testing prior to play. Any personnel involved in the production of the show will also be subjected to the same testing allowing the WSOP to create a "production bubble" where only those who have passed the testing will be allowed entry. Players will not be require to wear masks and plexiglass will not be in use. "There are only nine players in each bracket who are asked to voluntarily come to a live setting, where they will be protected by the most advanced Covid-19 testing prior to facing their competitors," Stewart said. "Our strategy here was intentional to keep the majority of play at home or in a controllable environment and keep the finale live environment small, manageable, and at the option of those with most to gain." Those same protocols will be used for the heads-up finale in Las Vegas on December 30. The decision to hold a made-for-TV WSOP Main Event before the end of the year lead some to wonder if a contractual obligation with ESPN forced WSOP's hand. Stewart dismissed this theory and indicated that the production costs are being absorbed by Caesars and GGPoker. "For the first time in over a decade, WSOP and its partner GG will be fully subsidizing all the costs of this production to guarantee the television coverage, given timelines and scope of programming could not be delivered in 2020," Stewart said. "Given that investment, and our $1M money added, the 51st Main Event will be a marketing expense. Which is fine with us. We are in poker for the long haul."
  7. It’s not easy to crack into online poker’s worldwide top-100 rankings. But for Americans who play inside U.S. borders on regulated sites, it’s even tougher. United States-based players don’t have access to the massive player pools and huge guarantees that some of the top players grind in order to rack up leaderboard points. For these pros, it takes a doubling-down of volume and effort in order to earn their spot and recognition among online poker’s best. And this week, four of America's best have succeeded in doing just that. Frank ‘thewholefunk’ Funaro Jr. (#52) New Jersey’s Frank Funaro is the current #1-ranked player in the United States and currently sits at #52 in the world. Funaro is in the midst of a career run, sitting just one spot off his career-high ranking and speed toward $1 million in total online poker earnings. Funaro has been stockpiling PLB points all summer including 19 PLB-qualifying scores in August. However, he really heated up after he took down the September 14 edition of the WSOP.com $100,000 Player Appreciation tournament for $19,741 and 325.69 PLB points. Just two weeks later, Funaro grabbed gold again by winning the WSOP.com $2,000 buy-in $150,000 guaranteed NLH High Roller for another $44,489 and 446.65 points. For the entire month, Funaro pulled in 38 cashes for a total of just over $102,000 in earnings. After a solid two-month grind, Funaro has been taking it easy. With just 11 cashes in October and, as of yet, no major recorded scores in November, he’ll find himself slipping down the rankings soon. But after all his hard work, he’s still likely to have a spot in the top-100 for a little while longer. David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (#62) David Coleman has just added to his long list of accomplishments, which includes a win in the New Jersey WPT Online Poker Open earlier this year, by reaching a career-high worldwide ranking of #62. Coleman, who is perpetually in the conversation when one talks about the best U.S. online poker players, has been steadily picking up PLB points throughout September and October. However, on October 28 he really received a boost with a pair of five-figure scores. Coleman just narrowly missed out on picking up a WSOP Circuit ring with a third-place finish in the WSOP Circuit Event #13 ($100,000 NLH High Roller, 6-Max) for $25,183 and 273.63 PLB points. The same day, he took down the WSOP Tuesday Showdown for another $17,302 and 246.39 PLB points. Coleman has continued his grind into November, already picking up some key PLB points including a win in the PokerStars NJ $250 Super Tuesday for $5,318. As more results come in, Coleman has a clear shot at cracking the top 50. Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (#90) World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Yong Kwon currently sits at #90 in the world having been ranked as high as #47 just last year. Known for his dedication to grinding, Kwon has spent years being known as one of the most dominant players from the Garden State racking up accolades and often times holding the #1 U.S. ranking for months at a time. After taking the first two weeks off in October, Kwon racked up 47 in-the-money finishes with 15 scores of four-figures or higher. His heavy PLB point push came as the month was coming to a close with back-to-back victories on WSOP.com. First, he took down the $20,000 Weekly Thursday for $7,162 and 157.16 PLB points. Then he added a win in the $10,000 Weekly Friday for another $2,800 plus 100.00 PLB points. His spotlight score took place in the WSOP.com PLO Mania Event #13 ($25,000 PLO) for $9,770 and 193.29 points. Kwon kicked November off with a fast start taking third place in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for another $4,721 adding to his more than $3.75 million in lifetime online earnings. Angel ‘ChromeKing’ Lopez (#92) Angel Lopez broke through into the top 100 this week for the first time, rising 16 spots to a career-high ranking of #92. Lopez used a flurry of PLB-qualifying cashes in recent weeks to propel himself up the rankings. It got started with a third-place finish in the October 21 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $6,398. He followed that up with a run in the WSOP Circuit Event #11 ($250,000 NLH Main Event) for $1,319. Then, he went on a three-tournament tear in earl November picking up points in bulk. First, a deep run in the November 2 WSOP.com $100,000 GTD Sunday brought him $2,707. He followed that up two days later with a third-place finish in the PokerStars NJ $250 Super Tuesday for $2,707. Finally, he capped it all off with a victory in the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday and taking home the $5,759 first-place prize.

  8. Skill, determination, and a little bit of luck are what it’s going to take for either Doug Polk or Daniel Negreanu to come out ahead in the most hyped, bad-blood poker grudge match in recent memory. The two social media heavyweights are planning on playing up to 25,000 hands of high-stakes, heads-up online poker starting this week and both are looking to put a hurt on the opposition's bank account and poker industry clout. But unlike some of poker’s more recent heads-up contests, a victory for these each of these guys will be measured by more than a strict tally of dollars and cents. After years of trash talk and trolling plus pre-match positioning, how each of these players measures their success, and really books a “W”, is drastically different. Time To Back It Up For Polk, it won’t be good enough to simply beat Negreanu by a couple of bucks in order for his return to poker to feel like a win. After all of his online put-downs, including how he will be “backing up the truck” to collect Negreanu's paychecks, those on his side are looking for him to absolutely bury Negreanu on the felt by an astonishing amount. Polk built his entire poker career on the back of being a legendary Heads Up No Limit crusher. Playing under his screen name ‘WGCRider’, Polk was known to take on all challengers, including high-profile players like Viktor Blom and Daniel Cates, and in the end, he emerged the richer for it. His HUNL success was the bedrock helped him launch his popular YouTube channel and brought people to his successful poker training site, Upswing Poker. That’s the history that has made Polk the overwhelming favorite in this challenge and it’s a role he’s embraced. He’s produced Photoshops of him backing up an armored truck while making comments about wanting to clean out “a complete dolt” in Negreanu who wants to “ship me a million dollars.” While it seems like it’s all a show in an effort to push the action, for Polk to truly win this challenge he’s going to have to make Negreanu look like he’s a member of the Washington Generals. A guy playing a game he has zero chance of winning. He’s going to need to do enough damage to Negreanu’s seemingly infinite bankroll that the six-time WSOP bracelet winner considers quitting before they hit any milestone hands simply because he can’t handle the pain. In short, for Doug to really get the win, he has to make the kind of money that will allow him to leave poker, again, and this time leave for good. The Rocky Scenario Negreanu doesn’t bear nearly the same burden as Polk. And it’s not by mistake. From the get-go, Negreanu spent the better part of the pre-match back-and-forth telling anyone who would listen that despite all his accolades which includes six WSOP bracelets, climbing to the top of All-Time Money list, finishing runner-up in a Super High Roller Bowl, and becoming the biggest name in the game over more than two decades on the felt…he’s a massive underdog. But he's the type of guy who just won’t back down from a challenge. And it worked. The public narrative is that Polk received nearly everything he wanted. Polk dictated what they would play (HUNL) and where they would play it (online) and when PokerShares originally put a line on who would win, Polk was roughly a 6:1 favorite. This made it so Negreanu doesn’t even really need to win a dime in order to celebrate in the end. Read: Five Of The Wildest Prop Bets for the Polk vs. Negreanu Challenge In his own mind, Negreanu is Rocky. Not the squirrel but the boxer. He’s the scrappy underdog stepping into the HUNL ring and he’s taking on the celebrated champ Apollo Creed, represented by Polk. But the end of the original Rocky is sometimes misremembered (spoilers ahead) in that Rocky doesn’t actually win the fight. Sure, he goes the distance with the champ, taking his lumps and dishing out some damage, but when all is said and done he ends up losing by decision. But even though Rocky isn’t the champ, no one in the theater considered Rocky a loser in the end, right? That’s a similar scenario that could be what constitutes a “win” for Negreanu. If “Kid Poker” goes the distance with Polk and somehow manages to escape having lost a nominal amount, say a few buy-ins that can be easily accounted for by normal variance, then Negreanu can (and likely will) raise his own hand in victory. Of course, if Negreanu happens to win outright, even by a dollar, or pulls off an unexpected haymaker and puts Polk to sleep in the early going then his celebration will be bigger than a billboard right outside of the Rio. “Let’s Put On A Show” It’s not just Polk and Negreanu who can win in this challenge. The fans also have a path to victory. For the railbirds, it will be a win if the players find consistent times to play on a stream that provides quality production value. Accurate hand counts and an up-to-the-minute accounting of who is up and down on the session is crucial to keep fans engaged. Guesstimation of the scoreboard keeps fans distanced from the action. Having high-stakes pro Kane Kalas anchor the commentary is already a good start. Bringing in (and properly publicizing) other high-profile players who can keep things fresh and offer the rail different views of the match would be a big plus as well. Any additional behind-the-scenes cooperation including post-session interviews from Polk and Negreanu would take the challenge to the next level and really turn it into something fans can invest their time into. How can the fans lose? Easy. Durr Challenge. Enough said. However, getting to that finish line is likely to take some time. Both Negreanu and Polk are busy guys and if they start out by playing two-hour sessions, as has been reported, weeks may turn into months before this comes to a conclusion. So, for all who plan on setting aside time to follow the challenge, perhaps the biggest win will be remembering that sometimes the journey is the destination, and getting the opportunity to watch these two battle it out, in any form, may itself be a win unto itself.
  9. In the post-summer online poker doldrums, the upcoming high-stakes, heads-up challenge between Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk is giving poker fans something to look forward to at the end of the year. Slated to kick off on November 1, one of poker’s most high-profile feuds will finally battle it out on the felt, giving fans of both personalities something to get invested in as the action unfolds. Online poker betting site PokerShares knows that the interest in the match is extremely high and so they are giving fans a chance to get in on the action themselves. Of course, the Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald led book allows players to bet on who will win the challenge outright (Polk is the current favorite at roughly 4.5-1) but they have also decided to have some extra fun by offering more than 15 prop bets for fans who want to have a little extra rooting interest. So, here are some of the more interesting wagers onlookers can make while watching Polk and Negreanu play HU4Rollz. How Big Will The Biggest Pot In Session 1 Be? For many fans, this is the biggest reason to tune in. Just like “Rail Heaven” days on Full Tilt Poker when the best nosebleed players in the world routinely won and lost six-figure sums, the chat will be packed with those hoping to see poker players put it all on the line in sick spots. This challenge has the potential to have some of those swings. At $200/$400, 100 big blinds deep with stacks being topped off, it only takes a cooler or two before there could be a whole lotta of money on the table. PokerShares is setting the over/under on the biggest pot at $100,000 and with the first session assumed to be at least two hours long with two tables running the potential for fireworks is there from hand number one. Will One Player Rage-Quit Early Session 1? Rage-Quitting is real. It’s defined as "angrily abandoning an activity that has become frustrating", and in recent months and weeks, tempers from both Polk and Negreanu have flared up. It wasn’t that long ago that Negreanu was temporarily banned from Twitch after having a few choice words for a viewer who insulted his family. This took place only a few sessions after disconnect problems on WSOP.com, the same platform this challenge is being held on, saw him nearly toss his laptop across the room on stream. Polk on the other hand keeps it more controlled in his streams and videos. That’s not to say he can’t be riled up. When the entire challenge was threatened, he lashed out a few times on Twitter not only at Negreanu but also taking the time to reply to random Dan-fans about how he’s planning on “backing up the truck”. Although unlikely, those who think emotions will get the better of one of these two can get 4.8-1 on their money. Will Doug Polk Return To Being A Pro Poker Player? The odds are not in favor of Polk, win or lose, returning to the grind but there are some interesting things to consider here. Polk has stated that he only retired from poker once and the only reason he’s back is to take on Negreanu. He posted a “goodbye poker” video on his channel and for those who followed his YouTube journey, it was clear his love of the game had dried up some time ago. But...he is back. Remember, he challenged Negreanu, not the other way around. He was out of poker and on to bigger things like trying to recall the Mayor of Las Vegas. But Polk chose to return to the spotlight, no one called him out. Now he’s back in the lab, not only working on his game in theory but getting cash game sessions in against some tough opponents in preparation. Finally, while he claims that he’ll be off once he's done taking out "the ******* trash", he’s also indicated on Twitter that he might be open to playing other opponents. It might be a tough judgment call on whether Polk is ever a pro again (for instance what if he’s playing challenges but also returns to creating content where he makes a good deal of money), but if you want to take a shot on him the line is 7.6-1. The flip side of this is Will Daniel Cease To Be A Pro Player Because of This Challenge? Good luck with that one. Will There Be A Slowroll in Session 1? Both players have a firm understanding of the etiquette behind slow rolls and the deep disrespect that sometimes comes with them. That said, these guys clearly do not like each other, and in the layers-deep mind games that play out in heads up, would either of these guys pull a slow one? This bet comes with an important caveat that needs to be seen before putting down a few dollars. The person behind the website, Mike McDonald, is “the decider” in this case. While being a longtime trusted member of the community, and apparently a 90% free throw shooter, it might be a little problematic if the guy who knows where the bulk of the money sits is also responsible for determining the outcome. This is not a questioning of McDonald’s honor or intent, just a nod to how someone might feel if they place and bet and it’s ruled against what they think is an obvious slowroll. Same odds on both sides here. Where Will Doug Polk's Teeth Be At The End Of This Match? You read that right. PokerShares is confident that Polk will be keeping all his teeth right where they are. But if you think Negreanu might make Polk the same offer that got him banned on Twitch, you can take a flyer on this wild prop that jokes about what might be done to Polk's teeth and where they might be given back to him. These prop bets are made for fun with a majority of them having a per-player max limit less than the buy-in of a Sunday Major. This ensures that neither the player nor the book, can be hurt too bad. At least not nearly as bad as the pain Negreanu or Polk may feel when the challenge gets underway next month.
  10. The ongoing, years-long feud between Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk entered yet another chapter over the weekend. As the pair hashed out the subject of whether or not pre-flop charts (or any form of Real-Time Assistance) would be allowed in their upcoming high-stakes, heads-up challenge on WSOP.com, the tension between the two entered a new phase with Negreanu playing up his role as the underdog and Polk setting his intention to do real damage to Negreanu’s bankroll. After negotiating out the details of the November match, including the stakes, game format, platform, and starting date, the subject of what reference materials would be allowed during the course of play came up. It was clear from the onset of the discussion that the mind games between the two had started well before the first card has even been dealt. After first declaring that he was “open to either allowing or disallowing the use of any RTA including charts”, Negreanu shifted gears. He took to Twitter and dug into the notion that “real poker” is played without any in-the-moment assistance.
  11. We are seeing a lot of new names on both regulated Nevada poker sites for the first time and wonder if this is the result of the Full Tilt Poker remission process. We will try to see if any of these players are willing to share their stories with us. WSOP.com ran three of its $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to any 2014 World Series of Poker $1,500 event. All of their events exceeded the guarantees. There were 262 runners vying for 33 prizes totaling $15,975. The players with the highest valued prizes won were PokerStars and VegasJF, each winning a $1,500 seat to an upcoming 2014 WSOP event. It was PokerStars' first win of the year and VegasJF's second. Neither of these players was seen at a final table at all last year. The player with the highest cash win was SuGaRaY71 with a payout of $1,268, taking down Thursday night's event. This is SuGaRay71's fifth time cashing in these major events this year. He is starting to show consistency in making the final tables, having first been seen on December. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 120 runners generating a prize pool of $12,512 and paying a total of 19 spots. The highest cash this week went to POSTA for $1,474. The last time we saw POSTA win an event was in the UPC2 series last year. At that time, POSTA took down Event #13 for $23,878. The new guy on the block on Ultimate Poker to keep an eye on is The Agnostic, who is showing up at the final tables of the Big 25 Series as well as the $2,500 nightly events. The following are the tournament results for this week from Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com, the two legal and regulated online poker sites in Nevada.

  12. In the Sunday $10K Guaranteed on Ultimate Poker in recent weeks, PocketFives' own Aaron lvkid7Bass banked $2,900 for finishing first out of 84 players. Bass is a regular contributor to PocketFives' Nevada poker community and so we wanted to get the inside scoop on the first regulated online poker market in the US and one of its frequent players. PocketFives: How are you feeling about your $2,900 cash in the Ultimate Poker $10K? Aaron Bass: I'm ecstatic. It's a tournament and I don't get to play a lot of those, so it's good to take down a big one when you have a chance. I don't have a bigger bankroll to play the $100 buy-ins regularly either. Over the summer, I won an Ultimate Poker Summer Series event and along with it came a watch, which has gotten delayed and so they sent me a $100 ticket instead. That's what I used to play the $10K. PocketFives: How have the tournament fields been in Nevada? Aaron Bass: The first few weeks were the peak in terms of traffic. The Sunday tournaments were getting 150 or more players and, since then, it has dropped off. In the nightly tournaments, the attendance is holding steady. The numbers have been steady for a few months now. Until Nevada can get compacts with more states besides Delaware, I don't see the fields going up that much. PocketFives: What trends have you noticed so far between WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker, two of the three regulated sites in Nevada? Aaron Bass: I have seen more tournament play going to WSOP.com. I think Ultimate has the lockdown on Omaha. Ultimate is better for sit and gos, whereas WSOP.com is better for tournaments. PocketFives: Real Gaming just soft launchedin Nevada. What do you hope to see from subsequent sites that join the market? Aaron Bass: I hope when they open, they have promotions geared toward players who haven't played much. If they can bring in players who don't know online poker is back in Nevada, that will help. I don't see Nevada alone having a lot of growth unless we get compacts with more states. PocketFives: Do Nevada residents know that regulated online poker exists? Aaron Bass: I have 10 friends who are recreational players who play live. Out of those 10, four or five have played online and bought in for a couple hundred dollars.

  16. Atlantic City's own Jake schaf4206Schafer (pictured) got hooked on poker during the Moneymaker boom like many other poker players around the world. He has been on a tear in the month of March on the virtual felts in New Jersey, winning the WSOP.com $10,000 Sunday Guarantee on March 9 for $3,500, winning the nightly WSOP $10,000 Guarantee on March 25 for $3,253, and taking second in the WSOP Weekend Warm-Up $5,000 Guarantee on March 29 for $1,350. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest news and discussion from New Jersey players. PocketFives: Tell us how you got started in poker. Jake Schafer: I started playing poker in college. There was a big group of us that played cash games all the time at Coastal Carolina University. I think most of us really got interested in the game during the Moneymaker period, as watching poker on ESPN all the time got me really interested in and eventually hooked on poker. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Jake Schafer: I play on WSOP.com the most. I like WSOP's and 888 Poker's software the best. I get disconnected and also have geo-location issues a lot with Borgata Poker, PartyPoker, and Ultimate Poker, so I mainly just play on WSOP.com and 888 for now. PocketFives: What has been your most memorable cash on the New Jersey websites? Jake Schafer: The most memorable win would be shipping the WSOP.com $10,000 Weekly Sunday Guarantee. I have final tabled all of the bigger buy-in tournaments on WSOP, but to close out a win in the Sunday $10,000 Guarantee was very memorable. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your success playing online poker? Jake Schafer: Most my success on New Jersey sites has come from years of playing and having experience with the ups and downs of poker. The more you play and the more hands you see, the better you will be. Reading books on poker helps, but to really get better and improve your game, you need to put in the time and volume.

  21. New Jersey online poker is in full swing and, with 100 days of operation under its belt, WSOP.com has released data highlighting the enormous impact that mobile will play in the burgeoning market. The well-known brand, run by Caesars Interactive Entertainment, found that 26% of all play came from mobile devices or tablets, with gamblers spending an average of 43 minutes on Caesars' various online casino websites. Poker players at WSOP.com spent even more time on the site, averaging 76 minutes. The data won't come as a surprise to analysts and executives who have long predicted that mobile devices would play a key role in the industry. "Mobile applications will play an enormous piece of the puzzle in online wagering, which is why we are so positive and see so much upside in the months ahead," saidJoe Lupo, Senior VP of Borgata. While analysts have tempered their online gaming revenue expectations for New Jersey's first year, casino officials say that the current numbers don't take into account the potential for mobile growth, which is only starting to happen. So far, a number of New Jersey casinos offer online poker via mobile apps, including 888 Poker, WSOP.com, PartyPoker, and Borgata Poker (mobile client for Borgata shown below). Operators like the Tropicana, Trump Plaza, and Trump Taj Mahal offer mobile betting on casino table games. One issue hampering growth is cell phone usage. Due to the fact that players must be verified by geo-location software, most mobile apps only allow players to gamble when connected to WiFi. That means players hoping to access sites on the go using 3G or 4G cellular networks will be out of luck for the time being. Lisa Spengler, spokeswoman for the DGE, recently told the Associated Press that the Division is working with geo-location vendors to provide a solution that would allow players to connect through such networks in the future. The trend toward the use of mobile devices in i-gaming is not limited to New Jersey and can be seen in the UK market as well. Gambling operator William Hill recently reported that its mobile betting revenues increased 298% from 2012 to 2013. Paddy Power saw a similar increase in usage, while Betfairhas reported that mobile betting was up 64% year-over-year. Patrick Kennedy, Paddy Power's CEO, believes that 90% of industry growth will come from mobile. With smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices so pervasive, it's easy to see how mobile gaming could see tremendous growth. According to Nielsen, 60% of US mobile subscribers used smartphones as of June 2013. "With tablet growth increasing and smartphone adoption continuing to reach more and more, it is clear the future of the majority of gaming experiences will be on these devices," said Caesars' Seth Palansky.

  25. In Nevada this week, WSOP.com ran three of its four $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to the 2014 World Series of Poker. All of the $3,000 daily events exceeded their guarantees. There were 231 runners with a total prize pool of $16,000. The players with the highest valued prizes won were BShriever5 and butters, each getting a $1,500 seat to a 2014 WSOP event. BShriever5 continued to add on to his number of cashes, now at 21, and has won over $19,000 to date, not counting his five cashes in the lower guarantee events. Not to be overlooked, butters has cashed only 10 times so far, but one of those was for a $10,000 entry to the WSOP Main Event. This brings butters' total cashes to just over $20,000 to date this year. The player with the highest cash win was jdcandidate, with a payout of $1,392 for taking down Monday's event. jdcandidate took second place in Thursday's event for $621. Since arriving on the scene on March 17, jdcandidate has had two wins and four second place finishes when playing at a final table. With over $5,500 in prizes, he is a player to keep an eye on this year. Also keep an eye on VPIHokie1970, as he is starting to heat up again. With four more cashes, including a first place finish in the last two weeks, he now has more than $29,000 in winnings on 31 final tables in the larger events. He has also been seen cashing in the lower guarantee events. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 121 runners generating a prize pool of $11,511 and paying a total of 121 spots. The highest cash this week went to bansman, winning $1,228 in the Monday night $2,500 event. This is bansman's first takedown in this event since showing up on the final tables in February. He has over $3,500 in earnings to date. FLUFFYBUNNY is the Ultimate Poker hot player of the week with back-to-back takedowns of the $2,500 daily event. With 21 cashes so far this year, FLUFFYBUNNY has won eight events outright and has come in second place five times. His total cashes to date are $19,000. The following are the tournament results for this week from Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com, two of the licensed and regulated online poker sites in Nevada.
