  1. An exciting final table saw David Peters win World Series of Poker Online Event #25 ($7,777 NLHE Lucky 7's) and the $283,939 top prize after a decorated group of players produced a fast-paced finish. With four of the final eight already bracelet winners, the victory gave Peters his third WSOP bracelet as one of poker’s quiet greats further established his stellar reputation.

  2. Players typically give a lot of thought when picking their screenname for an online poker site. Whether it was a matter of setting a goal or a tribute to Erik Seidel, Eric Van Auken manifested his performance in Event #26 ($500 NLHE The Big 500 Encore) on Sunday night. Van Auken navigated his way through a final table that included a member of the Poker Hall of Fame and the second place finisher from Saturday night to win his first WSOP bracelet and earn $93,627.

  3. When the final table of World Series of Poker Online Event #24 ($400 NLHE Monster Stack) started on Saturday night, Byung Yoo was simply hoping to ladder up after starting with the third shortest stack.

Yoo continued to climb the ladder while Paggeot, who had three times as many chips as the next largest stack when the final table began, continued to run over the final table including holding a 14-1 chip lead over Yoo heads up. That's the closest Paggeot got to winning his firs
  4. Seven months after falling short at the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event U.S. final table, and one night after busting in fifth in another bracelet event, Ryan Hagerty battled his way through a WSOP event and emerged with the gold hardware that had previously eluded him. Hagerty, the fourth place finisher back at the hybrid final table of the 2020 WSOP Main Event, topped a field of 694 entries in Event #23 ($500 NLHE Turbo) Friday night. Thanks to the turbo format, final table bustouts were fast and furious. The first coming less than a minute after the final table began. From UTG, 'Lu
  5. Timing is everything. One can say this about most things in life, but for Phil Beck, a perfectly-timed series of events lifted him to victory in the World Series of Poker Online Event #9 ($400 Six-Max NLHE) for a career-high cash of more than $81,000 and, perhaps more importantly to him, his first WSOP gold bracelet. “It’s kind of crazy man, I’m in a little bit of disbelief,” Beck said just days after his win. “I’ve got a lot of buddies that are very, very good to incredible at the game, and not a lot of them have bracelets.” Beck, a construction controller for a local Las Vegas construc

  9. Poker and Daily Fantasy Sports are two industries that are seeing a fair amount of overlap as both continue to expand to different states nationwide. Many players are splitting their days between grinding on the felt and grinding the virtual gridiron or basketball court at night. One of those players is Gionni Demers, a DFS pro and unprecedented three-time DraftKings Millionaire Maker winner, who just added a major poker title to his resume when he took down the WSOP Online Event #14 ($500 No Limit Hold'em) for over $90,000.

  11. Monday Night's World Series of Poker Online event saw an exciting climax crown Martin Zamani as the new bracelet winner in WSOP Online Event #19 ($888-entry Pot Limit Omaha Crazy Eights). Zamani claimed the win at the expense of Shawn Stroke, but that only tells half the story of an incredible ending to what was a fast-paced PLO final table.
