  1. Over the past 50 years, for many, the World Series of Poker has grown into more than just a poker series. It’s become a pilgrimage of sorts. Players from all over the world head to Las Vegas to take their shot at battling against the best, bringing home a bracelet and possibly be crowned a World Champion. With the WSOP regularly taking place in the U.S., it’s no surprise that American players, far and away, have amassed the most bracelets in WSOP history. It’s nearly 20 times that of the next nearest country. But this year is different and the tables have turned. After the month of July, the focus of the bracelet chase will be handed over to GGPoker where the rest of the world will have the edge on grabbing gold as American players continue to be shut out of the global online poker scene. On GGPoker, players from nations from around the world who wouldn’t otherwise make it to the Rio this summer will be looking to add to their own poker resume while contributing to the WSOP legacy of their country. Brazil It’s no secret Brazilians love their poker. They also love playing online. In the history of PocketFives, four Brazilian players have climbed to the #1 worldwide ranking. But when it comes to the World Series of Poker, Brazil isn’t even in the top 10 countries when it comes to taking down WSOP events. Through the end of 2019, six players have earned a bracelet including one of those former #1-ranked online players, Yuri Martins Dzivielevski. Dzivielevski grabbed his first WSOP win just last year after taking down the $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Li 8 or Better event for over $213K. Dzivielevski, partypoker ambassador Joao Simeo, WSOP bracelet winner Andre Akkari, and GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos are just some of Brazil's top-flight talent that make it so it wouldn’t be unthinkable for Brazil’s total bracelet count to double in 2020. Canada The truth is, it’s been hard for Canada to compete for bracelets in the U.S. Not because of a lack of talent, there’s more than enough. But because of tax ramifications. When Canadians win at the WSOP they can lose as much as 30% to the US-Canada Tax Treaty, making it hard to be profitable in tournaments. That hasn’t stopped Canada from claiming the #2 spot with 60 total bracelets. Led by Daniel Negreanu and his six wins, Canada boasts numerous multi-time bracelet winners including Greg Mueller, Mark Radoja, Kristen Bicknell and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel, the first and only Canadian to hold that title. There’s a good chance for Canada to add to their legacy and strengthen their bracelet count in 2020. It’s well known that Negreanu, also a GGPoker ambassador, is going to charging hard for a bracelet with over $500,000 in bracelet bets on the line. Also online crushers like Bicknell, bracelet winner Mike Leah, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski, and recent PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker winner Mike Watson all have full reign to win without getting punished in the wallet simply for being great. United Kingdom Some of the most colorful characters to grace the World Series of Poker stage have come from the UK. Many of which have contributed to the country’s 51 bracelets. David ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, Luke Schwartz, Roland de Wolfe, Jake Cody, and Barny Boatman are just some of the legendary names that have posed for a WSOP winner’s photo and elevated the profile of poker in the UK. This year it will be a new crop of players who will lead the charge for England starting with the current #1 ranked online poker player in the world, Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. In fact, four of the top 20 online players in the world play from the UK including Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and Tyler ‘Wonderboy222’ Goatcher. In the history of the UK, only seven players have earned multiple bracelets and if there’s one player who is a favorite to join that club it would be high roller savant Stephen Chidwick. Chidwick, who holds a bracelet of his own, is one of the most talented tournament players in both the live and online arena. Provided he has the time, he could even have a shot at catching Benny Glaser, who holds the UK’s record as a three-time bracelet winner. Russia Russia and France both have 22 bracelets, but when it comes to playing online Russia gets a definitive edge. It’s impossible to forget the impact that Russian players have had on the World Series of Poker from Ivan Demidov’s runner-up finish the original November Nine for over $5.8 million to Vitaly Lunkin taking down the 40th WSOP Anniversary event for his second gold bracelet. But while Russia is another talent-rich country, it takes a lot of effort to make it from Moscow to the middle of the Amazon Room. While Dennis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov made the journey in 2019 and went home with a bracelet, many of the online crushers from Russia opt to grind online through the summer. It’s those players, like former #1-ranked ‘veeea’, who could break the tie with France this year and tack on to Russia’s total. That is unless Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier has anything to say about it. The truth is that for many countries, the series on GGPoker can really impact their gold bracelet standing. In China, there are four players who have won a bracelet. With GGPoker’s wide exposure to the Asian market, there’s a very good chance that that club will be adding some new members in 2020. There’s only one bracelet winner from Uruguay, Alex Komaromi, who won his at the WSOPE in 2015. Top-ranked players from Hungary, like ‘Wildace_hun’ have the chance to break a long-standing five-country tie of five bracelets. While none of these countries are going to make up much ground on the 1,1132 bracelets earned by Americans, the gold they take home this summer will be an important part of WSOP, and their countries, legacy in poker.
  2. Nominations for the second annual Global Poker Awards were announced on Friday with popular poker personality Joey Ingram leading the way with four nominations. The Global Poker Awards, slated to take place at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas on March 6, celebrates the poker industry by recognizing the game of poker's top talent both on the felt and behind the scenes. This year, awards will be handed out in 19 different categories including two that are voted on by the fans.

  3. Twenty-six players remain in the $1,500 Extended Play No Limit Hold'em event at the World Series of Poker. At stake is a $478,000 first place prize and bracelet winner Barny Boatman (pictured) owns the lead with a stack of 1.15 million in chips. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- Antonio Esfandiari was the chip leader when we checked in on Monday night, but Boatman crippled him. Coverage on WSOP.com detailed what happened when Boatman faced a 4bet from Esfandiari pre-flop: "There has been a bit of recent history between these two players and now they are in a blind-on-blind confrontation. The action is on Boatman and he looks in no mood to give up to Esfandiari's aggression and slides out his own raise to 174,000." Esfandiari asked for a count and responded by shoving all-in. Boatman called with K-K only to see Esfandiari had aces, but a flop of 5-5-K put the Brit out in front for good. The hand moved Boatman to almost one million in chips. Shortly thereafter, Esfandiari was eliminated. After doubling up late in the day on Monday, Jonathan FieryJustice Little went busto after 3betting all-in before the flop with 6-5 of diamonds and getting a call from a player with 8-8. Little flopped a straight draw and turned a flush draw, but couldn't connect on the river and earned $11,000 for 28th place. Yevgeniy Jovial GentTimoshenko (pictured), the chip leader entering Monday's restart, is now the second shortest stack in the room at 226,000. He gave some chips to Nick Duvall late in the day after Duvall was all-in on a board of 9-8-6-K. Timoshenko questioned, "Do you have a flush draw? What do you want me to do? Are you going to show if I fold?" Timoshenko ultimately folded and Duvall showed 7-6. Timoshenko said he had an overpair. Here's how the field looks. The blinds were 5,000-10,000-1,000 when the action stopped: 1. Barny Boatman - 1,152,000 2. Luis elpim Duarte - 1,079,000 3. Artem Metalidi - 1,056,000 4. Yehoram Houri - 895,000 5.

  4. Just four days ago Barny Boatman found himself nearing the final table of the €3,250 Eight Max Pot Limit Omaha event with a chance at winning his second bracelet. But the British poker pro fell one spot short of that final table and lost out on a chance to add another title to his resume. He made up for that on Saturday at WSOP Europe in Berlin. Boatman beat a final table that included Shannon Shorr and the man who held the chip lead at the start of the day, Doug Lee, to finally grab his second bracelet and win €54,725 ($62,114 US) “I was chip leader in that tournament when it was 11-handed. So I walked away thinking, ‘What have you done? That was your chance to make a final’,” admitted Boatman. “So coming back again, there was no way I was bubbling this final table. It was not going to happen.” Boatman didn’t bubble the final table and made the most of his final table appearance and once only four players remained, he did all of the heavy lifting, eliminating every single remaining opponent. Lee was the focus when the final table began. The much-maligned internet sensation had the chip lead at the start of the day and quickly eliminated Damian Pawlak in eighth. Grzegorz Grochulski then sent Pawel Bakiewicz in seventh before Lee got another victim, Dominik Maska, out in sixth. That was the end of Lee’s dominance though. While the first three eliminations came in just a 90-minute span, play slowed for some time before Shorr busted Lee in fifth. From there it seemed like Grochulski would cruise to the victory as he dominated table play and held well over half of the chips in play. But the veteran Boatman turned the tide and in a 15 minute span he busted Jose Obadia in fourth and Shorr in third leaving him heads-up with Grochulski. Despite Boatman’s hot run, he actually trailed Grochulski by a 3-2 margin when heads-up play began. It took two nearly two full levels for Boatman to turn the tide in his favor again and eliminate Grochulski in second. Sunday will see yet another bracelet awarded as 21 players return in the €1,100 Turbo No Limit Hold’em including Brian Hastings, Faraz Jaka and overwhelming chip leader Kevin Stammen. Final Table Payouts Barny Boatman - €54,725 Grzegorz Grochulski - €33,910 Shannon Shorr - €24,520 Jose Obadia - €18,000 Doug Lee - €13,220 Dominik Maska - €9,980 Pawel Bakiewicz - €7,560 Damian Pawlak - €5,780
  5. On Thursday, Loren Klein added his name to the World Series of Poker history books and now has a shot at erasing a few names in 2020. Klein was one of three players to win bracelets on Thursday, with the other two winning the first bracelets of their career. Aristeidis Moschonas Wins $600 NLHE/PLO Deepstack Title Greece is now on the board. Aristeidis Moschonas defeated Dan Matsuzuki heads-up to win the $600 No Limit Hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha Deepstack event to give his homeland of Greece their first bracelet of 2019. Moschonas, who typically plays PLO cash games, felt he had a noticeable advantage over the players in the field who specialize in No Limit Hold'em as the moved between PLO and NLHE. "My main game is PLO, I’m a PLO cash player. I also play No-Limit tournaments so it’s like the perfect format for me," Maoschonas said. "I have an edge against the No-Limit players who don’t know how to play PLO." The $194,759 score he got for winning was definitely nice, but the extra day the tournament needed to complete cost the 37-year-old the chance to play one of the marquee events on the schedule. “I wanted to play the $25K PLO but I went to deep on this one, but it’s OK I guess,” Maoschonas said. Matsuzuki, who won the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo event last year, banked $120,374 for the runner-up finish. Final Table Payouts Aristeidis Moschonas - $194,759 Dan Matsuzuki - $120,374 Raghav Bansal - $88,410 Rainer Kempe - $65,482 Ashish Ahuja - $48,914 Stephen Ma - $36,852 Adam Lamphere - $28,006 Daniel Moravec - $21,469 Simon Samokovski - $16,603 Loren Klein Makes History With $2,500 Mixed Big Bet Win For the fourth straight year, Loren Klein has won a WSOP bracelet. Klein beat Ryan Hughes heads up to win the $2,500 Mixed Big Bet event for $127,808. He joins Bill Boyd and Doyle Brunson as the only players to have won a bracelet four years in a row. Klein's other three wins were the $1,500 NLHE/PLO (2016), $1,500 PLO (2017), and the $10,000 PLO Championship (2018). Hughes has a streak of his own. This is the second consecutive year that he's finished runner-up in this event. He also finished seventh in 2017 to make him the only person to cash all three years that the event has existed. Philip Hui finished third for $51,346 and his eighth cash of the 2019 WSOP. Final Table Payouts Loren Klein - $127,808 Ryan Hughes - $78,985 Phillip Hui - $51,346 Arthur Morris - $34,328 Joseph Couden - $23,622 Jonathan Depa - $16,746 Mike Sexton - $12,240 Michael Blake Takes Down Super Seniors Michael Blake came out on top of the record-setting 2,650-player field in the Super Seniors event to win $359,863. “It's the third time I've played in it. I'm an old guy, I've played poker for most of my life, and I feel very fortunate,” said Blake, 71. Blake beat 2009 WSOP Europe Main Event champion and Card Player Magazine co-owner Barry Shulman for the bracelet. Shulman's wife, Allyn, who won the Seniors Event in 2012, finished 36th. Final Table Payouts Michael Blake - $359,863 Barry Shulman - $222,295 Cary Marshall - $162,536 Timothy Joseph - $119,888 Rick Austin - $89,217 Kanajett Hathaitham - $66,987 Jeffrey Miller - $50,751 Bruce Treitman - $38,802 Miles Harris - $29,939 Damjan Radanov Leads $1,500 NLHE Bounty into Day 3 Day 2 of the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Bounty event started with 272 players - all in the money - and ended with Damjan Radanov leading the 23 survivors. Radanov bagged up 4,625,000 while two-time bracelet winner Asi Moshe ended up right behind him with 4,530,000. Other notables moving on to Day 3 include Harrison Gimbel, Martijn Gerrits, and Kalidou Sow. Among the 249 players who were unable to make it through the 10 levels of play were Phil Ivey, Loni Harwood, Sam Grizzle, Steven van Zadelhoff, Scott Margereson, Justin Young, and Barry Greenstein. Day 3 begins at Top Chip Counts Damjan Radanov - 4,625,000 Asi Moshe - 4,530,000 Timothy Stephens - 3,220,000 Harrison Gimbel - 2,985,000 Andrew Hills - 2,580,000 Patrick Truong - 2,505,000 Tonio Roder - 2,300,000 Bastian Fischer - 2,185,000 Martijn Gerrits - 2,145,000 Benjamin Chalot - 1,900,000 Anson Tsang Leads Massive $25K PLO High Roller Day 2 of the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller was mostly about Anson Tsang, but it's impossible to ignore the 56 players who late-regged or re-entered on Day 2. Those players helped push this year's event to 278 total entrants, smashing the previous high of 230. Tsang finished Day 2 leading the final 39 players with a stack of 4,775,000. James Chen put on a late surge to move within striking distance of Tsang and bagged 4,140,000. Alex Epstein sits third with 2,450,000. Other notables still chasing down the $1,618,417 first place prize include Robert Mizrachi, Erik Seidel, Ben Tollerene, Paul Volpe, Stephen Chidwick, Justin Bonomo, and Dan Smith. Day 3 begins at 2 PM PT and will play down to six players. Top Chip Counts Anson Tsang - 4,775,000 James Chen - 4,140,000 Alex Epstein - 2,450,000 Firas Sadou - 2,430,000 Robert Mizrachi - 2,245,000 Wasim Korkis - 1,900,000 Esther Taylor-Brady - 1,730,000 Erik Seidel - 1,533,000 Ka Kwan - 1,415,000 Ben Tollerene - 1,215,000 Day 1 of Ladies Event Draws Huge Field; Familiar Faces Jennifer Lopez - no, not THAT Jennifer Lopez - ended Day 1 of the Ladies Event with the chip lead, narrowly edging out Katie Lindsay. Lopez finished with 251,900, while Lindsay bagged 245,600. For the first time in the history of the event, players were able to re-enter after busting one time. That helped lead to a record number entries - 968 to be exact - before registration closed. In 2018, the event drew a field of 696 players. Some of the notables moving on to Day 2 include Ana Marquez, Allyn Shulman, Erica Lindgren, Kathy Liebert, Maria Lampropulos, Maria Ho, Kelly Minkin, Gaelle Baumann, and Kristy Arnett. Defending champ Jessica Dawley was one of the 707 players who were eliminated on Day 1. Action resumes at Noon PT.

New York's Baitai Li ended up with the chip lead as play wrapped for the night, ending with 354,800. Li's closest threat is Barny Boatman. The Brit finished with 263,100, just ahead of Canadian Mark Radoja, who bagged 248,000. Some of the bigger names who advanced to Day 2 include Ari Engel, David 'Bakes' Baker, Kitty Kuo, Kristen Bicknell, Bryan Piccioli, Martin Jacobson, Tony Dunst, Kenny Hallaert, Ben Yu, and Jake Schwartz. Day 2 begins at 1 PM PT and the first 50 players eliminated will do so without showing any return on their $2,500 buy-in. Play is scheduled to go another 10 levels. Top Chip Counts Baitai Li - 354,800 Barny Boatman - 263,100 Mark Radoja - 248,000 Antal Mezei - 246,400 Sebastian Percysmith - 245,000 Jesse Smith - 224,300 Oihan Abarzuza - 214,500 Adrian Apmann - 205,100 Truyen Nguyen - 190,000 Stefan Ivanov - 174,700 Johannes Becker Tops $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Day 1 Last summer, Johannes Becker won his first bracelet by taking down the $2,500 Mixed Lowball event. On Thursday he took a pretty good step towards winning another one, albeit against a tougher field. Becker finished Day 1 of the $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Championship with 526,500 - 130,000 more than any other player. Benny Glaser, who won his first bracelet in a $1,500 buy-in version of this event in 2015, ended up second in chips with 396,500. A total of 92 players entered on Day 1 with players able to enter up until the start of Day 2. There is no re-entry in this event. There will need to be 17 Day 2 entries for this year's event to match the 109 that played in 2018. The 32 players that managed to avoid busting on Day 1 include Luke Schwartz, Calvin Anderson, Brian Hastings, Marco Johnson, Brian Yoon, David 'ODB' Baker, and Mike Matusow. Day 2 action gets underway at 2 PM PT and will play seven 90-minute levels. Top Chip Counts Johannes Becker - 526,500 Benny Glaser - 396,500 Luke Schwartz - 321,500 Mark Gregorich - 275,000 Daniel Ospina - 258,500 George Wolff - 232,500 Cary Katz - 223,000 Rep Porter - 216,500 Calvin Anderson - 208,000 Max Kruse - 195,500
