  1. The 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event has arrived. The unique live-online hybrid solution to finding a successor to current reigning World Champion Hossein Ensan gives players, both in the United States and internationally, one final shot at winning a gold bracelet in 2020. Last updated: Sunday, December 7, 2020 The tournament, which comes with a traditional $10,000 buy-in and is a true freezeout, will hold all of its starting flights online. Players in the United States can travel to Nevada or New Jersey to play in a single opening flight on WSOP.com while international players have three starting flights to choose from on GGPoker. These two separate online tournaments will spawn two different final tables which will be played out live. The final nine from the WSOP.com player pool will determine a winner in Las Vegas as GGPoker's final table will battle it out at King’s Casino in Rozvadov. Ultimately, the winner of each final table will face off in a winner-take-all heads-up battle in front of the ESPN camera on December 30 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The winner of that match will take home an additional $1 million and the title of WSOP World Champion. WSOP Main Event Schedule (GGPoker) [table id=130 /] WSOP Main Event Schedule (WSOP.com) [table id=128 /] Julian Menhardt Leads GGPoker Day 1A Survivors [caption id="attachment_633135" align="aligncenter" width="799"] The opening flights of the 2020 World Series of Poker are underway online. (photo: World Poker Tour)[/caption] The first flight of the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event had 246 entries take their one-and-only shot in the $10,000 buy-in tournament. At the end of 16 30-minute levels, just 62 players advanced to day two with Germany’s Julian ‘VWgunther’ Menhardt bagging the chip lead with 534,490 chips (107 big blinds). Germany’s Paul ‘AsiaStylez’ Esau finished the day with 472,075 (94 bbs) for second in chips while the Netherlands Dirk Gerritse rounded out the top three with a 472,075 stack (91 bbs). Plenty of star power entered and survived through Day 1A. This includes former WSOP Main Event standout Preben Stokkan, a pair of Brazil’s best in Brunno Botteon and former #1-ranked player Yuri Dzivielevski, Anatoly Filatov, Daniel Dvoress, and Russia’s Artur Martirosian among others. For others though, the dream of becoming the WSOP Main Event champ will have to wait another year. Fedor Holz, Kristen Bicknell, Christian Rudolph, Julien Martini, and former #1-ranked players Steven van Zadelhoff and Andreas Nemeth were among those notable players who busted before the day was done. Joining them on the rail are the likes of Pablo Brito Silva, Jans Arends, Ole Schemion, Rainer Kempe, Christian Jeppsson, Sebastian Sikorski, and Patrik Antonius. The players that made it through to Day 2 of the WSOP 2020 Main Event will return to the online tables on December 7 and merge with the remaining fields of Day 1B and Day 1C to play down to a final table of nine. Day 1A Top 10 Chip Counts (GGPoker) [table id=129 /] Blaž Žerjav Takes Overall Chip Lead On Day 1B [caption id="attachment_633168" align="aligncenter" width="696"] The 2020 WSOP Main Event has a new chip leader after Day 1B. (photo: PokerFactor)[/caption] The World Series of Poker 2020 Main Event continued on December 5 as 171 players opted to take their $10,000 shot on Day 1B. After roughly nine-and-a-half hours of play, 16 total levels, just 42 players survived the day with their dream of becoming the next WSOP World Champion in tact. Slovania’s Blaž Žerjav, third-place finisher in the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online, finished the day atop the chip counts with a stack of 639,394 (128 bbs), good for an overall chip lead through two flights. Žerjav was followed closely by Brazil’s #9-ranked player, Rodrigo Valente (592,043, 118 bbs) in second place and Isreal’s Amir Divr (538,003, 108 bbs) in third. Online poker’s former #1-ranked crusher from Russia, Artem ‘veeea’ Vezhenkov was the only other player to end the day with over 100bbs, finishing in fourth place with 551,114 in chips, good for 102 big blinds. Day 1B saw its share of notable names make it through to Day 2 including World Series of Poker gold bracelet winners Simon Lofberg, Toby Joyce, and Barak Wisbrod. Joining them in advancing was the likes of PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo SHR winner Sergio Aido, Swedish pros Anton Wigg and Simon Mattsson, as well as PokerStars WCOOP winner Alex Difelice. With nearly 3/4th of the field busting throughout the day, it’s fair to say that there was plenty of big-time talent that found themselves on the outside looking in. Some of those who shot and missed included GGPoker ambassadors Felipe Ramos and Kevin Martin, 888poker ambassador Daria Feshchenko, Team partypoker pro Dzmitry Urbanovich, Sylvain Loosli, Bert ‘girafganger’ Stevens, Jens Kyllonen, Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic, Adrian Mateos, and former #1-ranked Swedish pro Niklas Astedt. Day 1B Top 10 Chip Counts (GGPoker) [table id=133 /] Senthuran Vijayaratnam Tops Day 1C, Takes Overall Chip Lead Into Day 2 The final starting day of the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event on GGPoker saw another 257 players post their $10,000 buy-in to boost the field size to a three-day total of 674 runners. This landed the total prize pool at $6,470,400 assuring a seven-figure score of $1,550,969 for GGPoker’s eventual winner as well as awarding $1,062,723 for the runner-up. At the end of another 16 levels, 75 players virtually bagged chips in Day 1C making for a total remaining field size of just 179 players who will return for Day 2 on Monday. Of those still in the hunt to become the 2020 WSOP World Champion, 80 will make the money and just nine will lock up a seat at the live final table, which set to take place at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic on December 16. Canada’s Senthuran Vijayaratnam leveraged the largest of the three starting flights to launch himself to the top of the overall chip counts. Vijayaratnam has a healthy lead on the field after dragging 966,714 (193 bbs) in chips, a number far above the tournament’s second-place player, the UK’s Jesse Wigan. Wigan just out chipped Day 1b chip leader Blaž Žerjav after finishing the day with 642,276 (128 bbs) in chips. Russia’s Viacheslav Buldygin rounds out the Day 1C top three, locking up 480,671 in chips to advance to Day 2. Day 1C had its fair share of notable names who made their way to the end of the day including WSOP bracelet winners Jonas Lauck and Sung Joo Hyun. Joining them in advancing to Day 2 include the likes of Gediminas Uselis, Damian Salas, Alexandros Kolonias, Ludovic Geilich, Antonine Saout, and Gary Hasson among others. Just like all of the other starting flights before it, Day 1C also saw plenty of big-time talent bust out before the end of the day. Eleven former bracelet winners failed to advance including GGPoker ambassador Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Davidi Kitai, Mike Leah, and 2020 WSOP Online Main Event winner Stoyan Madanzhiev. It was the same fate for the notable names of Dietrich Fast, Patrick Tardif, Dario Sammartino, Benjamin Rolle, Maksim ‘MAMOHT_T’ Mamonov, Mikita Badziakouski, David Peters, Kitty Kuo, and 2014 WSOP Main Event winner Martin Jacobson.

  2. [caption width="640"] Andras 'probirs' Nemeth is the #4-ranked player in the world (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to be the world's top-ranked online poker player, but a new threat has emerged to challenge the Uruguayan for world supremacy. After not being included in the PocketFives Rankings for the better part of four years, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth is back and now sits in the #4 spot. Nemeth not only came back to the rankings but put up some results as well. On Sunday alone he finished second in the $215 Bounty Builder on PokerStars for $12,144 and 208.84 PLB points, fifth in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand for $9,690/149.41 and then runner-up in the partypoker Super High Roller for $30,450 and 251.23. In the past 30 days, he's also won the partypoker Super High Roller ($53,250/421.31) and the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand ($38,461/442.72). Gonzalez maintained his hold on the top spot for the fifth straight week despite not being able to add to his PLB total. He made the final table of the partypoker Six Max Turbo High Roller on November 8 and a $215 Turbo event on PokerStars, but neither result was big enough to improve his standing. A runner-up finish in the partypoker Heavyweight for $20,608 and 257.9 PLB points and a win in the WPN Extreme Tuesday for $10,3305/214.01 kept Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov in second spot yet again. He now trails Gonzalez by 478.47 points. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten maintained his hold on the #3-ranking. The former #1 player did so despite not managing to record a single qualifying cash over the past seven days. His closest calls came on partypoker last Sunday when he finished fifth in the Six Max High Roller and sixth in the High Roller. Nemeth's inclusion at #4 meant the rest of the list all moved down. 'lena900', who was #4 last week, dropped to #5 despite his victory in the partypoker Super High Roller for $47,125 and 380.79 points and runner-up finishes in a PokerStars $320 Six Max event for $6,287 and 131.79 and a partypoker High Roller for $9,250 and 147.53. He trails Nemeth by 28.7 points. The only other player to move into the top 10 this week was Canada'sJoel 'jbrown8777' Brown. A win in the partypoker Six Max High Roller on November 8 added $12,280 to his bankroll and 118.41 points to his total. He also managed a third place finish in the PokerStars Big $215 on November 12 for $5,741 and 122.63. The #1-ranked player in Canada is now just seven spots off of his all-time high of #3 in the world.

  3. There was plenty of major online poker tournament action over the weekend, led by the PokerStars Sunday Million which was won by 'AAadrift' for $157,465 followed by 816th-ranked 'StoyanB' of Bulgaria who earned $109,715 for second place. Fellow PocketFiver 'RafaCorreaBR' cashed for $76,447 in third place while 'WillDav11' walked away with $53,266 for fourth place. 888poker hosted its $500K Guaranteed Super Whale event on Sunday. The tournament resulted in a heads-up chop between players 'Slaaasch' and 'ZDamian' who collected $79,382 and $74,090 following their final table negotiation. 'LCfish' took down the Mega Deep event outright for $24,900. Sixth-ranked Andras 'probirs' Nemeth of Hungary earned an outright victory in the partypoker $2,600 buy-in Super High Roller event and walked away with $47,938. 'Zaymovishka' was the winner in the $530 buy-in version of that event for $37,635. There was a heads-up deal in the Stars Sunday Warm-Up as 'acemaKerface' and 'DRONCHEK' were awarded $56,509 and $45,355 for their respective 1st and 2nd place efforts. The $1,050 buy-in NLHE "Sunday Grand" saw '$uperday' come out on top for $56,814. 'Fresh_oO_D' won the PLO version of that event for a payday of $33,037 and 'camary' outlasted more than 32,000 opponents to win the PokerStars Sunday Storm outright for $32,136 as #2 worldwide player 'C Darwin2' took home $30,975 for his runner-up performance.

  4. The top-ranked player in Hungary, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, won over $500,000 on Day 5 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and in the process prevented Roman 'RomeOpro' Romanovsky from collecting an astounding third title of the series. With the bumper buy-in Low, Medium and High Event #14 tournaments all coming to a conclusion on Thursday, the results saw 12 players collect six-figure scores, including Romanovsky who made it to heads-up play on his third bullet in the $25,000 buy-in 'High' and was looking to achieve his third win of the series after taking down Event #16 (High) the day before and Event #2 (High) on Monday. But, Nemeth was the man in his way and ultimately prevented the Ukrainian from achieving the feat to claim his own third career SCOOP title and the first-place prize of $576,087. Romanovsky received $442,299 as runner-up which left the current #12-ranked player in the world less than $200,000 away from the $10M career earnings accolade. Guntis 'poker@luffyD' Aleskins picked up his largest recorded online result to date after banking $240,765 for victory in Event #14 (Medium). Former Sunday Million runner-up Aleskins defeated 'engantil' heads-up for the win, with the latter taking away $171,625 for second place. Also on the final table was 'Lena900' who collected $87,208 in fourth-place and helped 'Team Sweden' close the gap on 'Team BITBRYE' in their much talked about six-figure series prop bet. The UK's Ben 'jenbizzle' Jones overcome Brazil's Ivanildo Limeira in Event #14 (Low) to pick up his first SCOOP title, and a career-best recorded online cash of $162,039. Jones, who is a former Super Tuesday, Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Supersonic champion, came through the 5,700 entrants field and navigated his way to victory on a final table that also featured 2017 WCOOP Main event third-place finisher, Machadada RS, and Chester20o. Event #15 saw three six-max PLO rebuy tournaments take place with 'Maizeruba', 'igor69' and 'Tr!pleeeee' all adding SCOOP titles to their names. 'Maizeruba' won $9,872 after coming through a 3,891 player field in the 'Low' and 'igor69' was the victor in the 'Medium' for $32,858, after seeing off former Pocketfives world no.#1 'cal42688' into third place. In the 'High' 'Tr!pleeeee' took away a cool $87,042 after beating Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah, Jerry 'Perrymejsen' Ödeen and Adam 'adamyid' Owen on the final table. Christopher 'Apotheosis92' Kruk, who featured on the Event #16 (Medium) final table on Day 4, made another SCOOP appearance on Day 5 after collecting the silver medal in Event #13 (High) Triple Draw 2-7 for $38,850. The Canadian was beaten to the top prize of $57,720 by 'merla888' after they successfully came through the 111 player field. 'TheRabbitFR' made up for their runner-up spot in Event #10 (Medium) by going all the way in Event 13 (Medium) to win $15,480. 'TheRabbitFR' beat 'SexualDrag0n' in heads-up play, on a final table that saw Pocketfives members 'komarolo22' and 'hummylun' achieve fourth and fifth place respectively. In Event #13 (Low), 'hapsmoney' beat out 1,726 other entrants to earn the victory and $5,441. 'Flakon2010' was rewarded with $4,058.45 for second place with 'Moergi' picking up $3,022.45 in third place.

  5. The long reign of 'C Darwin2' is over. For the first time in 2018, a new name sits atop the PocketFives Rankings and it took a schedule packed with PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and partypoker Powerfest events to make it happen. Fellow Swede 'lena900' picked up two SCOOP titles and a Powerfest victory plus three other qualifying cashes to move from #5 to #1. All told, 'lena900' picked up an astonishing 3,375.86 points and $628,508 in those six events. The three victories came in Powerfest #53 ($10,300 Super High Roller NLHE), SCOOP #24-High ($530 NLHE w/rebuys) and SCOOP #39-High ($1,050 NLO8). 'C Darwin2' didn't fall far though. The Swede, who held the #1 spot for the last 20 weeks, wound up at #2 thanks in large part to the massive lead he had built up and the four qualifying cashes he picked up over the last week, adding 979.94 points to his total. While 'lena900' has won multiple titles during POWERSCOOP, 'C Darwin2' failed to win in either of those series over the last week. He did pick up a win in the PokerStars Daily 500 on May 12. Andres 'probirs' Nemeth held on to the #3 spot by adding 917.63 points to his total from two Powerfest cashes and one SCOOP cash. Nemeth now sits 852.4 points behind 'C Darwin2' but just 88.99 ahead of his next closest competitor, Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky. Romanovsky, who won two SCOOP titles two weeks ago, picked up just two qualifying cashes for just 311.75 points this past week and fell from #2 to #4. Russia's 'hellohellohello' stayed in the top five, but dropped from #5 to #4. He picked up just 685.59 points from three qualifying cashes and is one of five players with a PLB points total of 10,000 or more. Other big movers this week include 'GINS FINEST' (#17 to #8), Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha (#15 to #12) and Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan (#24 to #17). The biggest jump inside the Top 25 though comes from 'Dattebayo'. The Austrian moved all the way from #47 to #25 thanks to an astonishing 11 qualifying cashes. The Austrian added 2,161.54 points to his total with 975.52 of those coming from a pair of Powerfest wins on May 12.

  6. For most of 2018, Steve O'Dwyer has been unbeatable in high roller tournaments, both online and live. Roger Teska flipped the script on that narrative late Monday night at the $25,500 buy-in Caribbean Poker Party MILLIONS World, coming back from a 4-1 heads up chip deficit to win $2,000,000 and his first live title in over nine years. Teska started the final table with the third shortest stack and had to battle against the likes of Rainer Kempe, Niall Farrell, Joao Vieira, Ben Tollerene and Andras Nemeth on his way to the title. Teska's last live win came in 2009 when he won a $500 buy-in Bellagio Cup V event. It didn't take long for the first casualty at the nine-handed final table. Paul Tedeschi raised to 2,500,000 from middle position with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"] before Vieira moved all in for 17,500,000 from the hijack with [poker card="jh"][poker card="js"]. Tedeschi called and watched the [poker card="qh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] runout keep him in full control and eliminated Vieira in ninth place. Ten minutes later, Farrell became the next victim of the final table. O'Dwyer raised from the button to 2,600,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="6h"] and Farrell moved all in for 10,500,000 with [poker card="2c"][poker card="2d"] from the small blind. Roger Teska re-raised all in from the big blind with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"]. O'Dwyer folded and Farrell could only watch after the [poker card="as"][poker card="ts"][poker card="3s"] flop kept Teska well ahead. The turn was the [poker card="td"] and the [poker card="qd"] completed the board to send Farrell to the rail with an eighth place finish. O'Dwyer found his first final table victim almost 30 minutes later. O'Dwyer raised to 2,500,000 from UTG+1 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"]. From the button, Kempe moved all in for 15,600,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"] and O'Dwyer called. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"][poker card="5d"] flop gave O'Dwyer complete control as the [poker card="6d"] and [poker card="ks"] hit the turn and river respectively to eliminate Kempe in seventh. It took nearly two hours of play before there was another elimination. Teska and Tollerene tangled in a pre-flop all in hand that saw Teska win with runner-runner flush against Tollerene's pocket pair. Left with just fumes, the next hand was the end of the line for Tollerene. Tollerene moved all in for 10,000,000 from UTG with [poker card="kd"][poker card="2h"] and Nemeth called from the big blind with [poker card="js"][poker card="7c"]. The [qs[poker card="jh"][poker card="5s"] flop gave Nemeth second pair. The turn was the [poker card="6c"] and the river was the [poker card="ad"] to eliminate Tollerene in sixth. Nemeth had plans on putting his newfound big stack to work but ran into the buzzsaw that is O'Dwyer. From the button, O'Dwyer raised to 3,700,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] and Teska called from the small blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qd"] before Nemeth moved all in for 71,500,000 with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"] from the big blind. O'Dwyer called and Teska folded. O'Dwyer got great news on the [poker card="ad"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3s"] flop. Neither the [poker card="qc"] turn or [poker card="5c"] river were any help for Nemeth and he was eliminated in fifth place. Tedeschi lost a monster pot to Teska before O'Dwyer finished him off for good. Teska and Charles La Boissonniere both folded and Tedeschi moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="2d"]. O'Dwyer called from the big blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="7h"] and then moved ahead with the [poker card="jc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2c"] flop. The [poker card="ts"] turn and [poker card="3d"] river failed to save Tedeschi and he was out in fourth. As O'Dwyer continued to build his stack, he did so largely at the expense of La Boissonniere. The Canadian had less than 10 big blinds and found himself in the big blind with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. O'Dwyer folded the button, Teska moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="qs"][poker card="7d"] and La Boissonniere called. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="td"][poker card="th"] flop gave Teska the lead. The [poker card="8s"] turn gave La Boissonniere outs to a straight, but the river was the [poker card="6h"] and he was out in third place. When heads-up play began, O'Dwyer had 79.1% of the chips in play. The tournament was all but over a few minutes later when Teska four-bet all in holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"] and O'Dwyer called with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="qs"] on the flop moved Teska in front and neither the turn or river helped O'Dwyer and the stacks were nearly even. Teska's momentum continued and less than an hour later he was posing with the trophy. O'Dwyer button-raised to 9,000,000 holding [poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] and Teska shoved with [poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"] and O'Dwyer called all in. The [poker card="8h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2h"] moved Teska ahead and the [poker card="qd"] turn and the [poker card="3c"] river sealed O'Dwyer's second place finish. Final Table Payouts Roger Teska - $2,000,000 Steve O'Dwyer - $1,300,000 Charles La Boissonniere - $1,000,000 Paul Tedeschi - $700,000 Andras Nemeth - $550,000 Ben Tollerene - $450,000 Rainer Kempe - $350,000 Niall Farrell - $300,000 Joao Viera - $250,000
  7. The world of online poker took center stage on Sunday evening after live events such as the WSOPE, and WPT Montreal came to their conclusion, and it was well-known grinder Andras 'probirs' Nemeth who showed his prowess by winning both the PokerStars and partypoker High Roller tournaments. The PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller saw 100 entrants create a $200,000 prize pool with the first-place prize set at $47,398. As always, a stellar line-up played with the final table featuring the likes of Connor 'blanconegro' Drinan and 'hello_totti' in action. Both of those players departed 'bartek901' before took third place for $27,184, and the heads-up match was set. Tomi 'elmerixx' Brouk was unable to get the better of Nemeth and departed in second place $35,895, and Nemeth took the win The Hungarian then picked up his second title of the evening by taking down the partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller and added another $56,000 to his bankroll. The field was set at 80 entrants with a $200,000 prize pool. 'Dextered' took the bronze medal for $27,000 before Conor 'ADRIEN_BRODY' Beresford was the final player to depart in second place for $39,000, and Nemeth picked up the win to seal a remarkable double achievement. The biggest payout, as expected, came in the PokerStars Sunday Million after 5,815 players created a $1,163,000 prize pool. 'TightAsULike' took third place for $77,329 and the final battle was set. There was a difference of nearly $47,000 between the first and second place prizes, and 'fellatiado' was the unlucky player to fall at the final hurdle and scored $110,192 as runner-up, allowing 'vasilikos7' to pick up the win, the coveted title and $157,025. Javier 'minusth3bear' Zarco took second place in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for a score worth $41,000, with 'serggorelyi7' claiming victory. 1,043 entrants took part and Lithuania's 'NikiStar777' took third place for $22,400 + $2,847. Zarco then departed as runner-up before 'serggorelyi7' took the win for $42,534 + $38,959. 'frenchtouch3' took the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up title after a heads-up battle with 'jason13-2008'. 'engantil' took third place for $19,041.14 from the 1,135 player field before 'jason13-2008' exited in second place for $26,482 and 'frenchtouch3' was victorious for $36,833. World ranked #1 'Lena900' took down the partypoker $1,050 Sunday Main Event-HR for a $36,628 score, following a heads-up deal with Poland's 'GreenNaugahyde.' 'TullaMoreFan12' departed in third place for $21,944, before the final two agreed to a money deal. 'Drulitooo' then came out best in the heads-up battle for the win with 'GreenNaugahyde' taking away $36,566 for their share of the prize pool. Over on 888poker, 'Farrugia_1' came through a 65 entrants $1,050 The $50,000 Whale field to bank $24,050. Six places were paid with 'Hurrrrican3' taking third place for $9,750, before 'B.Mitchell' had to settle for $16,250 as runner-up as 'Farrugia_1' took the win.

  9. Shaun Deeb and Brandon Adams both bagged up chip leads in "post-lim" events in the shadows of the Main Event at the 2019 World Series of Poker on Tuesday. Those two were the headliners in two of the five events outside of the Main Event on the calendar but Dan Zack also put on a show in his pursuit of WSOP Player of the Year honors. Brandon Adams Leads $50,000 Final Fifty Final Table Brandon Adams has already won one WSOP bracelet this summer and on Tuesday he took a gigantic step towards winning a second one. Adams finished Day 2 of the $50,000 Final Fifty event with the chip lead and just six players standing between himself and that second victory. Adams bagged up 11,970,000 and sits well ahead of the rest of the field. 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event champion Adrian Mateos has the second biggest stack with 7,375,000. Michael Addamo sits third with 5,765,000. Daniel Tang, Sam Soverel, Ali Imsirovic, and Keith Tilston round out the final table. There were 14 players who registered on Day 2, including Cary Katz. This presented the PokerGO owner with a challenge. He started the day with a healthy chip stack in the Main Event and was forced to actually multi-table between the two events. Katz managed to survive past the bubble of the Final Fifty before busting in 12th for $112,357. Final Table Chip Counts Brandon Adams - 11,970,000 Adrian Mateos - 7,375,000 Michael Addamo - 5,765,000 Daniel Tang - 4,550,000 Sam Soverel - 3,600,000 Ali Imsirovic - 2,190,000 Keith Tilston - 1,500,000 Shaun Deeb Tops Little One for One Drop After Day 2 Shaun Deeb continues to chase down Player of the Year points and a fifth career bracelet. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver soared to the top of the chip counts after the $1,111 Little One for One Drop after Day 2 with 412 players still remaining. Deeb ended the day with 2,892,000 and holds a 526,000 chip lead over the next biggest stack belonging to Matt Souza. This is Deeb's 14th cash this summer and he sits just over 620 points behind WSOP Player of the Year leader Robert Campbell. There's a number of notables still in contention including Loni Harwood (1,121,000), Mike Sexton - (1,030,000), Ryan Laplante (747,000), and Day 4 Main Event casualty Cliff Josephy (676,000).

The Austrian finished Day 1 with 419,200 and the chip lead. Richard Kellett is right on his heels though. The Brit finished with 414,600 and is just 4,600 behind Schwecht.

  10. The World Series of Poker bracelet train keeps on rolling, even as the Main Event dominates the attention of the poker world. Six more bracelet events were in action on Wednesday, with just one of them playing down to a champion. Through all of that, the WSOP Player of the Year has a new leader who is actually the old leader. High Roller Newcomer Danny Tang Ships $50K Final Fifty The $50,000 buy-in Final Fifty event was designed for a particular subset of the poker world: the high roller regular. Danny Tang wanted no part of that narrative, however. Tang overcame a final table that included Brandon Adams, Sam Soverel, Adrian Mateos, and Ali Imsirovic to win $1,608,406 and the first bracelet of his career. It's not his first big score though. In May he finished runner-up to Bryn Kenney in the Triton Poker Main Event in Montenegro. Tang says playing events with a buy-in this high is only possible because of the people who believe in him. “After I graduated and decided to turn pro I moved back to Asia and met a load of good people. People who trusted me, people who were willing to invest in me, buy pieces – their support was just unreal," Tang said after his win. “Without them investing, I would never have had the opportunity to move up in stakes eventually and play this tournament.” Tang will look to continue his high roller hot streak in the $100,000 Super High Roller event that begins Thursday. Soverel finished runner-up for $994,072 to pair with his third-place finish in the $50,000 high roller event in the first week of the WSOP. Australian Michael Addamo finished third for $697,375. Final Table Payouts Danny Tang - $1,608,406 Sam Soverel - $994,072 Michael Addamo - $697,375 Brandon Adams - $500,282 Adrian Mateos - $367,186 Keith Tilston - $275,874 Ali Imsirovic - $212,292 Seth Davies - $167,420 Mike Dentale Leads Little One for One Drop Just 48 players remain from a field of 6,248 in the $1,111 Little One for One Drop and Mike Dentale sits atop the chip counts. Dentale started the day with 628,000 and turned that into 13,400,000 as 364 players were sent packing on Wednesday. Pierre-Paul Paulin finished with the second biggest stack after turning 865,000 into 11,285,000. Zachary Donovan is right behind him with 11,130,000. Former #1-ranked online poker player Michael Wasserman ended up in the top 10 with 8,715,000. Shaun Deeb, who started Day 3 with the chip lead was eliminated in 118th place. He added $4,521 to his summer earnings and picked up an additional 248.2 WSOP Player of the Year points. Other notables who busted on Day 3 include Victor Ramdin, Loni Harwood, Mike Sexton, Dara O'Kearney, Lexy Gavin, Ryan Laplante, Felipe Ramos, and Cliff Josephy. Action resumes at 1 PM PT and could play down to a winner.

Nemeth, who has just two WSOP cashes to his credit, finished Day 2 of the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em event with 2,895,000 and the chip lead. David Gonzalez sits second with 2,135,000 and Jonas Mackoff has 2,125,000. Nemeth isn't the only former #1-ranked PocketFiver still in contention. Patrick Leonard starts the final day the third shortest stack. Dan Zack picked up a small cash but added 53.9 POY points to his total. Zack was multi-tabling on Thursday after bagging stacks in this event and the $1,500 PLO Bounty event. Other notables who cashed include Asher Conniff, Rainer Kempe, Kristen Bicknell, and Justin Bonomo. Play resumes at 2 PM PT and will play down to six players.

Yotsushika ended with 2,148,000 which put him comfortably ahead of former #1 PocketFiver Joao Simao (1,855,000) and Joseph Liberta (1,371,000). Also among the 42 survivors were Jesse Sylvia, Bryce Yockey, Toby Lewis, Jeff Lisandro, Denis Strebkov, and the shortest stack of all, Daniel Negreanu. Dan Zack also cashed in this event, finishing 44th for $3,553 and 105.4 POY points to take over the WSOP POY lead from Robert Campbell. Action resumes at Noon and will play down to a winner.

Day 1 saw 143 players enter with registration still open until the start of Day 2. Nikita Luther, who won her bracelet in the tag team event in 2018, finished with the best stack out of the 51 Day 1 survivors. Luther ended with 538,500. No other player even cracked the 400,000 mark. New Jersey online poker grinder Michael Gagliano sits second with 354,000. His roommates, Daniel Strelitz and Niall Farrell, were two of the earliest casualties on Thursday. Yuval Bronshtein ended with 277,000 for the third biggest stack. Action resumes at 2 PM PT. Top 10 Chip Counts Nikita Luther - 538,500 Michael Gagliano - 354,000 Yuval Bronshtein - 277,000 Haixia Zhang - 264,500 Blair Hinkle - 259,000 Shankar Pillai - 242,000 Chris Ferguson - 224,500 Ben Ponzio - 224,000 James Mackey - 220,000 Fred Berger - 204,500 Corey Wright Leads $1,500 Mixed NLHE/PLO A little bit of this and a little bit of that. The $1,500 Mixed No Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha event brought out 1,250 runners with just 340 of them making it through 10 levels of play on Day 1. Corey Wright finished with 332,500 to edge out Ramali Kusnadi (298,200) and Chance Kornuth (284,500) for the chip lead. Shaun Deeb continues to chase POY points and ended up with the seventh-best stack on the day.

  11. The top of the Spanish all-time money list on The Hendon Mob includes some easily recognizable names. Adrian Mateos, Carlos Mortensen, Sergio Aido, and 2019 PokerStars Players Championship winner Ramon Colillas occupy the top four positions, but the name now sitting in fifth is rising quickly. Sergi Reixach now has $5,027,636 in lifetime earnings after taking down the Poker Masters $25,000 No Limit Hold'em event on Tuesday for $369,000. He now sits just $184,000 behind Colillas. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] A battle of the blinds played a huge part in the first elimination of the day. Action folded to Reixach in the small blind and he called with [poker card="jd"][poker card="2c"]. Sean Winter checked with [poker card="5h"][poker card="3h"]. After the [poker card="tc"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2d"] flop, Reixach check-called Winter's bet of 40,000. After the [poker card="8s"] turn, Reixach check-called again, this time after Winter bet 80,000. The [poker card="8d"] river saw Reixach check for a third time with Winter betting 190,000, leaving himself just 5,000 behind, and Reixach tank-calling with bottom pair to leave Winter short. Winter spent the next 10 hands turning that 5,000 into 210,000 before getting into a sticky spot. From UTG, Winter raised to 160,000 with [poker card="qs"][poker card="jh"], Andras Nemeth moved all-in from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"] and Reixach called from the big blind with [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"] and tabled his hand prematurely. Winter was left with a decision for his final 50,000. After using two time banks, Sam Soverel called. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="9h"][poker card="7c"] to eliminate Soverel in sixth place and Nemeth in fifth. After George Wolff and Orpen Kisacikoglu folded, Soverel moved all-in from the small blind for 390,000 with [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"] and Reixach called with [poker card="kc"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="th"][poker card="3d"] flop gave both players a pair but Soverel wasn't able to move ahead through the [poker card="6s"] turn or [poker card="ac"] river and was eliminated in fourth place. Along with the $102,500 payout, Soverel added 120 points towards the race for the Purple Jacket to pass Chance Kornuth and take over the lead. With Wolff holding the chip lead, Reixach and Kisacikoglu got into an all-in preflop situation that sent the tournament into heads-up play. Reixach called from the button with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"], Wolff folded his small blind before Kisacikoglu moved all-in for 1,280,000 from the big blind with [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]and Reixach called. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="8c"][poker card="2s"] flop turned the tables on Kisacikoglu and he was unable to get back in front after the [poker card="as"] turn or [poker card="8h"] river and was sent home in third. That hand gave Reixach a small lead over Wolff at the start of heads-up play. The pair played for just 20 minutes before Reixach ended the tournament. Wolff called from the small blind with [poker card="6h"][poker card="4h"] and Reixach raised to 280,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] and Wolff called. After the [poker card="qh"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6c"] flop, Reixach bet 160,000 and Wolff moved all in for 1,390,000 and Reixach called. The turn was the [poker card="5s"] and the [poker card="th"] river made Wolff's second place elimination official. Three of Reixach's last four cashes were wins. He previously won the European Poker Tour Barcelona €100,000 Super High Roller in August and the British Poker Open £25,000 event in September. Final Table Payouts Sergi Reixach - $369,000 George Wolff - $246,000 Orpen Kisacikoglu - $164,000 Sam Soverel - $102,500 Andras Nemeth - $82,000 Sean Winter - $61,500 Purple Jacket Standings Sam Soverel - 690 Chance Kornuth - 630 George Wolff - 420 Sean Winter - 330 Kahle Burns - 330 Kristen Bicknell - 300 Sergi Reixach - 300 Isaac Baron - 300 Ryan Laplante - 300 Julien Martini - 300
  12. 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.

  13. On Monday, the first-ever Poker Masters Online continued with more high-stakes action on partypoker. After Sunday's opening day brought us the first three events of the series, Monday followed it up with two more. Winning the events were Mike Watson and Andras Nemeth, with both taking home right around a quarter of a million dollars.

[ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] Lefrancois Wins Event #23 for $527,509 Lefrancois won Event #9 for $243,988.

  17. Alexandros Kolonias now has himself a brand new purple jacket and an additional $50,000 after winning the Poker Masters Online Championship. Taking the event online, PokerCentral partnered with partypoker on a 30-event schedule that had buy-ins ranging from $10,300 to $51,000 mirroring the live version of the Poker Masters. The Poker Masters Online was the second full series to take advantage of partypoker's real name functionality giving poker enthusiasts at home an easy way to track how the world's best players did against each other in a high stakes online series. More Than 250 Unique Players There were a total of 258 unique players throughout the 30-event schedule. That group combined for 1,717 total unique entries and 849 re-entries. Each event gave players a maximum of three entries and there were 201 instances were a player fired three bullets in an event. There were 35 players who played a minimum of 20 events and 76 who played just a single event. Jason McConnon was one of them and he ended up with the highest ROI of any player after finishing second in Event #30 ($10,300 Six Max NLHE) for a $248,200 score on a single entry. A high stakes cash game specialist, McConnon jokingly suggested a career change after his runner-up performance. $35 Million in Prize Money The Poker Masters Online was a big winner for partypoker and Poker Central. The total rake for the series was $912,300. Taking into consideration the $50,000 prize awarded to Kolonias for winning the Purple Jacket, the net for tournament organizers was $862,300 - more than any single player. Players were allowed a maximum of three entries per event. The rake earned off of the initial entries was $619,600 and re-entries accounted for the remaining $292,700. Taking the event online proved to be a boon to the field sizes. The 2019 Poker Masters had just 10 events, but average field sizes for 2020 were up across the board. There was an average of 93 players in $10,000 buy-in events compared to 57.6 in 2019, an increase of 61.5%. The $25,000 buy-in events saw an increase of 44.7% going from an average of 43.75 to 63.29 players. In both years the Championship event had a $50,000 buy-in and the year-over-year increase was the most dramatic going from 34 to 77 players - a 126.5% growth rate. The total prize pools for all 30 events totaled $35,385,000, more than doubling the $16.5 million guaranteed. None of the events missed their respective guarantee and 14 tournaments had a prize pool exceeding $1 million. Nothing But Net While there were seven players who had at least $1 million in earnings, the highest net earner was Italy's Dario Sammartino. Cashing in nine of the 22 events he played earned Sammartino an $823,625 net score. [table id=45 /] There were 32 players who had net earnings of $100,000 or more and 40 who had net losses of $100,000 or more. Of the 258 players who entered at least one Poker Masters event, 63 were net winners. There were 135 players who entered at least one event and cashed zero times. Busiest of the Bunch Jorryt Van Hoof was the only player to play all 30 events. The Dutch pro cashed in 10 of them for a net profit of $9,708.74. [table id=44 /] The only event that Alex Foxen skipped was Event #2 ($10,300 Six Max PLO). Ali Imsirovic and Linus Loeliger each skipped a pair of PLO events. Imsirovic skipped Event #2 and Event #17 while Loeliger sat out Event #17 ($10,300 Six Max PLO) and Event #22 ($10,300 Six Max PLO). Andras Nemeth missed the opening two events of the series and then played every tournament from Event #3 onward. Christian Rudolph played the most events of any player that was unable to pick up a single in-the-money result. Rudolph entered 10 events and never cashed. He only re-entered three of those 10 events for a total of 13 bullets fired. [table id=46 /] Double Dippin' There were six players who won two Poker Masters Online titles. The first to do it was Pauli Ayras who took down Event #6 ($10,300 Six Max PLO) and Event #19 ($25,500 Eight Max NLHE). Of the 28 events that Loeliger entered, he cashed in only three of them but made the most of those cashes by picking up wins in Event #18 ($10,300 Six Max NLHE) and the Main Event ($51,000 NLHE). Sandwiched between those two results was a fifth-place finish in Event #27 ($25,500 Eight Max NLHE). [table id=47 /]
  18. The Super High Roller Bowl Online continued on Monday with another three players, including a pair of Canadians, picking up titles on the second day of action in the 28-event series. The biggest score on Monday went to Canadian Daniel Dvoress. Outlasting 70 other entries in Event #5 $25,500 Six Max NLHE Super High Roller, Dvoress earned $613,986.70. Capping off the victory required Dvoress to take out a pair of former #1-ranked PocketFivers Andras Nemeth had to settle for a $399,375 for finishing as the runner-up while Fedor Holz finished in third place for $213,000.

  19. Another major online poker series kicked off this weekend as the preliminary events in Poker Central’s first-ever Super High Roller Bowl Online series brought out some of the biggest names in the game. The complete series, which takes place on partypoker, will run from May 23 through June 1 and guarantees $20 million in total prize money across 28 High Roller tournaments. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Chris Hunichen took home the largest score of the three opening day events, earning $479,250 for his victory in Event #2 ($25,500 No Limit Hold’em Super High Roller ). The two-day event saw a total of 54 entries which pushed the prize pool to $1,350,000. Hunichen’s score ranks as the second-largest online cash of his career, right behind his third-place finish in the 2018 PokerStars SCOOP $10K Main Event for which he took home over $618,000. ‘Big Huni’ defeated another online superstar for the title by besting Viktor Blom in heads-up play. Blom’s runner-up finish was good for $32,625 and comes just a day after finishing third in the WPT Online series PLO High Roller for which he earned $121,200. Mark Davis fell in third place and picked up $205,875. Jans Arends outlasted the 76-entry field of Event #1 ($10,300 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) to take home the $216,600 first-place prize. Finishing right behind him was the UK’s Ben Heath who secured $148,200 as the runner-up. Picking up the bronze was two-time Global Poker Index Player of the Year Alex Foxen who added another $102,600 to his bankroll. Also of note, former worldwide #1-ranked online pro Niklas Astedt finished in sixth place for $41,800 and Daniel Dvoress secured a min-cash of $22,800, his second cash in the first two events. Another player who cashed in two of the three events was Sergi Reixach, who took down Event #3 ($10,300 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for $191,750. Combined with his fifth-place finish in Event #1, Reixach’s two-score, one day total was just shy of $245,000. Just a week after picking up his fourth career SCOOP title, Mike Watson finished in second place, taking home $129,800 for his efforts. And another former #1-ranked PocketFiver found his way to the podium as Andras Nemeth finished up in third place for $87,025.

  21. After four starting flights and 2,130 entries, the first-ever World Poker Tour Online Championship Event saw just 398 players return for Day 2 on Monday. And at the end of the day, it was Super High Roller savant Sam Greenwood who assumed the overnight chip lead heading into Day 3. Throughout the course of the week, thousands of players packed the lobbies of the WPT Online starting flights helping the WPT crush the event’s $5 million guarantee to the tune of a $6,390,000 prize pool. On Monday, the 398 players that survived those opening flights reunited online to battle for the over $1 million first-place prize. Only 35 of the 398 runners found a virtual bag with tournament specialist Sam Greenwood grabbing the top spot (4,635,621) followed closely by Pascal Hartmann (4,431,202), and Max Silver (4,340,422). Rounding out the top five chip counts are Rayan Chamas and Aram Zobian who also finished the day with over four million in chips. Other notable names to advance include Vincent Bosca Ramon, Amichal Barer, Benny Glaser, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Matthias Eibinger, Fabrizio Gonzalez, Viktor Ustimov, and World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson. Although 398 players returned for Day 2, only 312 of them were going to get paid. Justin Bonomo, Rui Ferreira, Daniel Dvoress, Christoph Vogelsang, and Ludovic Geilich were among the players who picked up a $5,942.70 min-cash, exiting not long after the money bubble burst. Koray Aldemir (273rd, $6,134.40), #1-ranked Conor Beresford (243rd, $6,326.10), Darren Elias (203rd, $6,645) were able to ladder up a little. Chance Kornuth (184th, $7,604.10), Wiktor Malinowski (149th, $8,882.10), Jorryt Van Hoof (123rd, $9,521.10), Dominik Nitsche (109th, $10,160.10), and Igor Kurganov (108th, $10,160.10) were among those who looked to make a run but fell outside of the top 100. Mohsin Charania (97th, $10,799.10), Simon Deadman (88th, $11,438.10), Mikita Badziakouski (68th, $13,035.60), Chris Kruk (57th, $14,185.80), and Kristen Bicknell (43rd, $16,741.80) were among those who nearly advanced to day three but ultimately fell just short. With 35 players left, everyone is guaranteed a payday of at least $18,594.90 while the top seven are promised a six-figure score. There were plenty of six-figure scores to be had in the two-day Event #37 ($25,500 Super High Roller) as 91 players battled for the over half-a-million first-place prize. After a deal was made, Dan Smith emerged victorious taking home $555,503.38 for first while Daniel Dvoress agreed to accept $456,871.63 as the runner-up. It turned out to be a nice day for Lucas Reeves as well, in addition to finishing in 51st place in the Championship Event for $15,463 he also claimed the bronze in the High Roller for a more substantial $295,750 payday. There were more huge scores to be had as those who had busted out of the Main Event were given another $3,200 event to play at the same time. Event #41 ($3,200 Second Chance Turbo) had 110 entries as Phillip Mighall booked the win and banked $80,850 for first. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Andras Nemeth finished as the runner-up, adding $57,750 to his bankroll. And while his brother was leading the Main Event, Luc Greenwood was bringing honor to the family name by claiming the bronze in the Second Chance, earning $41,250 for his efforts.

  22. There's very little that Andras 'probirs' Nemeth has not accomplished in his online poker career. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver has amassed more than $17.5 million in online earnings and won nearly every title out there. Except one. Heading into the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, the Hungarian poker pro had never won a WCOOP title.

'Bagrovui' took down Event #14 High ($1,050 PLO Six Max) for a $66,449.74 score and the first WCOOP title of their career. Jordi 'prot0' Urlings broke through and won his first career WCOOP title by beating 118 other entries in Event #17 High ($1,050 6+ Hold'em) to earn $26,752.48. Former #1 and current #9-ranked Patrick Leonard took home the bronze medal and $15,736.09. British grinder 'brandon0903' came out on top of the 194-entry field in Event #18 High ($2,100 NLHE) to win $80,642.40. Georgios 'Geokarak' Karakousis finished as the runner-up while the #14-ranked online poker player in the world Jerry 'Perrymejsen' Ödeen came in third place.
