  1. [caption width="640"] James Romero earned almost million and etched his name on the WPT Champions Cup with his Season XV Five Diamond Win.(WPT photo/Joe Giron)[/caption] The World Poker Tour Five Diamond Poker Classic is one of the tougher WPT fields each year. The Bellagio event draws some of the best poker players in the world to Las Vegas each December and the list of previous champions is a testament to that. Daniel Negreanu, Gus Hansen, Mohsin Charania, Dan Smith and Antonio Esfandiari are just a few of the players who have captured the title. The record-sized field that showed up in Las Vegas this past week for the Season XV Five Diamond Classic was star-studded, but in the end it was a relatively unknown player, playing his first WPT event, that managed to capture the title and the nearly $2,000,000 first place prize. James Romero topped a final table that included Justin Bonomo, Igor Yaroshevskyy and Jake Schindler to earn the first live win of his career. Romero came in to the final table with over 40% of the chips in play and never relinquished his lead, eliminating four of the five players that stood between himself and the title. Yaroshevskyy was one of just two players at this final table and came in*with the fourth largest stack, but that didn't stop him from being the first*player eliminated. With blinds at 50,000/100,000, Yaroshevskyy moved all in*from UTG for 1,420,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"] and Romero called from the big blind with*[poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="7h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2d"] flop left Romero ahead and when Yaroshevskyy failed* to connect with the [poker card="9c"] turn or [poker card="3d"] river he was out in sixth place. The*$268,545 sixth place cash is he third biggest of his career, falling behind his*second place in a 2015 World Series of Poker $5000 NLHE Turbo ($303,767) and a*fourth place finish at the 2015 WPT LA Poker Classic ($333,680). Two hands later Justin Bonomo joined Yaroshevskyy in the payouts line.*Schindler raised to 225,000 from the cutoff before Bonomo moved all in for*995,000. Schindler called and tabled [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"] while Bonomo showed [poker card="5h"][poker card="5s"]. The*[poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"][poker card="7s"] flop left Bonomo needing runner-runner fives. The turn was [poker card="ad"] to*officially seal Bonomo's fate before the [poker card="ah"] hit the river. Three hands later Romero found himself another victim. Action folded to Alex*Condon on the button and he moved all in for 1,170,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="9c"] and Romero*called from the big blind with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8h"] flop gave Condon*extra outs but neither the [poker card="as"] turn or [poker card="7d"] *were any help and he was*eliminated in fourth place. After three eliminations in the span of five hands, the pace slowed down but at no point Romero continued to build up his lead. After 2.5 hours of three-handed play, and with Romero holding almost 75% of the chips, he used his overwhelming lead to bust another player. Ryan Tosoc folded his button, Romero called from the small blind before Schindler moved all in for just over 4,000,000 from the big blind. Romero called and tabled [poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"] while Romero showed [poker card="6c"][poker card="6h"]. The board ran out [poker card="kd"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="2s"] to give Romero the pot and eliminate Schindler, the only other player with a WPT final table appearance, in third place. Heads up action between Romero and Tosoc began with Romero holding a 7-1 lead. Tosoc managed a nearly full double early, but it only took 16 hands for Romero to end the party. Down to just 2,000,000, Tosoc moved all in pre-flop and Romero called. Tosoc tabled [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"] but found himself up against Romero’s [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="jd"][poker card="9c"][poker card="4s"][poker card="6c"] run out made the elimination official and crowned Romero as champion, eliminating Tosoc in second place for $1,124,051. The $1,938,118 first place score doesn’t even push Romero’s lifetime live tournament earnings over $2,000,000. The 27 year old was previously focused on online poker and Las Vegas cash games. The event drew a field of 791 players, a record for this event. The previous largest Five Diamond field was in 2007 when 664 players entered the then-$15,000 buy-in event. The buy-in was lowered to $10,000 in 2010. The next WPT event is the Borgata Winter Poker Open in January. Final Table Payouts James Romero - $1,938,118 Ryan Tosoc - $1,124,051 Jake Schindler - $736,579 Alex Condon - $494,889 Justin Bonomo- $345,272 Igor Yaroshevskyy - $268,545
  2. Starting the final table with the biggest stack, Allen 'Acnyc718' Chang eliminated five of his eight opponents to take down Event #5 ($1,000 NLHE Freezeout) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online to win his first bracelet and a $161,286 payday. The tournament was the first freezeout on the schedule and attracted 854 runners to create an $811,300 prize pool, the second largest of through the first five events, trailing only Event #2 ($1,000 NLHE). The win was the 12th career WSOP cash for Yang and his first final table. Starting the final table with the second shortest stack at just 8.5 big blinds, Quintin 'AA_QTiP_KK' Trammell moved all-in from the cutoff for 699,132 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="qs"] after 'iseefoodtuna' opened to 120,000 from middle position with [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"]. 'iseefoodtuna' called and then sweated through a [poker card="js"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6s"] runout to eliminate Trammell in ninth. Two minutes later, Chang put his big stack to work to end the other short stack home. Action folded to 'charliefrog' in the cutoff and they moved all in for 532,132 with [poker card="as"][poker card="jh"] and Chang called from the small blind with [poker card="qs"][poker card="js"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"][poker card="7c"] flop gave 'charliefrog' top pair and left Chang drawing to Broadway. The [poker card="5h"] turn changed nothing but the [poker card="kd"] river filled Chang's straight draw and eliminated 'charliefrog' in eighth. Alexander 'ShadowFiend' Condon raised to 200,000 with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qh"] from late position before John 'Slapshot1085' Forlenza moved all in for 790,158 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] from the cutoff. The board ran out [poker card="8s"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="kc"] to give Condon middle set and eliminate Forlenza in seventh place. Condon got into another all-in preflop situation 15 minutes later that had a very different outcome. Condon raised to 240,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"] from late position and Chang moved all in for 6,353,967 from the button with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] and Condon called. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="7d"] runout gave Condon no help and he was eliminated in sixth. Chang found another victim just a few minutes later. Down to just 12 big blinds, 'married' moved all in from UTG with [poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"] and action folded to Chang in the big blind who called with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6s"] flop kept Chang in front and 'married' was unable to pick up one of their two remaining outs through the [poker card="7s"] turn and [poker card="jd"] river and busted in fifth place. Four-handed play lasted a full 30 minutes. From UTG, 'iseefoodtuna' moved all in for 2,278,039 holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="2c"]. Philip 'tomte' Yeh moved all in for 3,305,205 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"][poker card="2d"] flop gave 'iseefoodtuna' some hope but the [poker card="ks"] turn and [poker card="5c"] river couldn't save them from a fourth place result. Chang continued to use his big stack in optimal spots and earned yet another elimination. Action folded to Chang on the button and he raised to 360,000 and Felipe 'McBain' Leme called from the big blind. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="9s"][poker card="5c"], Leme checked, Chang bet 350,000 and Leme called. The turn was the [poker card="7h"] and Leme moved all in for 2,342,150 and Chang called. Leme showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="9h"] for second pair and the nut flush draw while Chang turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"] for top pair. The [poker card="2d"] river was a blank and Leme was eliminated in third. Chang started heads-up play with a 2.5-1 chip lead over Yeh. It took 25 minutes before the pair clashed in a hand the resulted in Chang's victory. Yeh moved all in for 2,900,000 with [poker card="8c"][poker card="6c"] and Chang called with [poker card="qh"][poker card="js"]. The board ran out [poker card="jh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2d"] to give Chang top pair and eliminate Yeh in second place. Final Table Payouts Allen 'Acnyc718' Chang - $161,286 Philip 'tomte' Yeh - $99,709 Felipe 'McBain' Leme - $69,772 iseefoodtuna - $49,570 married - $35,697 Alex 'ShadowFiend1' Condon - $26,124 John 'Slapshot1085' Forlenza - $19,390 charliefrog - $14,603 Quintin 'AA_QTiP_KK' Trammell - $11,196 Faces in the Crowd Ryan 'Protential' Laplante just missed out on the final table, finishing in 11th place for $8,680.91. He wasn't the only familiar face who worked their way into the money. A few well known online grinders and players who have found success early on in the Series also cashed including Michael 'itwasthator0' Gagliano (12th - $8,680.91), Event #2 winner Louis 'PokeThese' Lynch (50th - $2,758.42), Daniel 'redsoxnets5' Sewnig (94th - $1,703.73), Jed 'jchak' Hoffman (110th - $1,622.60), Katie 'katelin' Lindsay (113th - $1,622.60), and fresh off of his fourth place finish in Event #4 on Saturday, Frank 'spaghettiii' snuck into the money with 124th finish worth $1,622.60.
