  1. The latest World Series of Poker Online bracelet event produced a fast-paced final table as Bradley Ruben took down Event #21 ($600 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Handed). After a heads-up victory against Michael Holtz, Ruben won the $69,148 top prize to claim his second WSOP bracelet and deny the final table chip leader Holtz a maiden victory. With nine players left, Holtz was dominating not just his table but the tournament, sitting with 2.7 million chips. Only Ruben held over a million chips at that stage, with Holtz’s dominance typified by his elimination of Kijoon Park in 10th place. Park’s [
  2. The latest World Series of Poker bracelet was won by a dominant Tyler Denson on Wednesday morning as an exciting, but one-sided, final table played out in Event #6 ($2,000 NLHE Deepstack) of the 2021 WSOP Online. Going into the final table, the chip stacks were tight at the top of the leaderboard as Denson, Jeffrey ‘PlusEv905’ Schwartz, and Demetrios ‘GOGGINS’ Petrou were jostling for position, each of those three players above two million chips but shy of three million, with Denson holding a slim lead over the field. One player who had the opposite of a large chip stack, however, wa
  3. Another opportunity to capture a gold bracelet arrives when the World Series of Poker Europe returns to the King’s Casino in Rozvadov from October 9 - November 2. The three-week festival includes 10 bracelet events, including the €5 million guaranteed Main Event, and €13 million guaranteed over the span of the series. Streamlined Schedule The schedule of events in 2018 is slightly trimmer, down to 10 events from 12 a year ago. But the loss of the One Drop charitable events doesn’t stop the schedule from offering a slate of tournaments that will appeal to everyone from the recreational bra
  4. In June, the poker world is consumed with results and stories coming out of the World Series of Poker.

Meanwhile, two tournaments will return tomorrow very close to the end, with one heads-up and another three-handed. The final table of the SHOOTOUT has also been set, while the $25K PLO High Roller played through its Day 1. Here’s everything you need to know about June 21’s WSOP action.

  6. The 2019 World Series of Poker continued on Saturday with another massive field in the Big 50 as that event quickly hurtles toward a record for the largest WSOP event ever. Ben Heath Leads Talented Final 12 in $50K High Roller Players were able to register for the $50,000 No Limit Hold'em (Event #5) until the mid-way point of Day 2. This lead to a total of 110 entries and a final prize pool of $5,280,000. Just 12 players remain in contention for the bracelet and the first place prize of $1,484,085. Leading the way is Britain's Ben Heath. Finishing with 5,255,000, Heath managed to go from
  7. Chalk up another win for Bryn Kenney in 2019. This time, there was no deal to be made as Kenney knocked out four of his final five opponents en route to a lightning-fast victory in the US Poker Open Event #7: $25,000 No Limit Hold’em for $450,000. The 60-entry field was narrowed down to a high-rolling who’s who final table of six. Kenney and Ben Yu were among the chip leaders however, there were four other formidable players in Nick Petrangelo, Keith Tilston, Nick Schulman and, eventual runner-up, Jake Schindler, who were all capable of coming from behind. Final Table Payouts 1. Bryn
  8. Busting out of a World Poker Tour event usually means a miserable end to one's poker trip. Aaron Mermelstein was having none of that. After busting in 53rd place in the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown on Tuesday, Mermelstein jumped into the $25,000 High Roller event and the Pennsylvania poker player beat a final table that included the reigning GPI Player of the Year, a former WSOP Main Event champ and a WSOP Europe Main Event champ to pick up the second biggest score of his career. Ben Yu didn't come to the final table with the shortest stack, but with just six big blinds to work wit

  10. John Hesp. Michael Ruane. Mark Newhouse. Even William Kasouf. Every year during the World Series of Poker thousands of new faces enter the halls of the Rio All Suite & Casino in hopes of earning a life-changing score. Sometimes though, along with the money, a player's accomplishments and personality introduce them to poker fans around the world, helping them become the next emerging poker star. In some cases, it may be a player who has been on the scene for a number of years and their expertise was able to shine in the summertime to elevate their profile to new heights. In 2018, it w

  13. The 2019 U.S. Poker Open has really been about two names so far; Stephen Chidwick and Sean Winter. Chidwick got things off to a strong start by winning Event #1, while Winter had made every final table but hadn't picked up a win. That all changed Sunday night when Winter beat David Peters heads up to win $151,200 and his first USPO title in the $10,000 Short Deck event. Final Table Payouts 1. Sean Winter - $151,200 2. David Peters - $100,800 3. Seth Davies - $67,200 4. Ben Lamb - $42,000 5. Ben Yu - $33,600 6. Stephen Chidwick - $25,200 Chidwick also made the final table but start
  14. When Ali Imsirovic took his seat at the final table of Poker Masters Event #5: $25,000 No Limit Hold'em he was likely the least known poker pro of the star-studded six. But even though Imsirovic, the 2018 Borgata Spring Poker Open Champion, may not be one of the faces regularly seen during high-stakes broadcasts, he didn’t let the moment get away from him. He navigated the tough final table and in the end, claimed his first Poker Masters title and a career-high cash of $462,000. Generally considered one of the toughest high-stakes tournament players in the world, Aria regular Jake Schindle
  15. The World Series of Poker Player of the Year race featured a new leader almost every week for the duration of the series. Elio Fox jumped to an early lead thanks to his bracelet win and runner-up finish in the $100,000 High Roller all within in the first week. By the middle of June, Fox's epic first week was an afterthought. Post-lim events played a large role in how the final leaderboard shook out. The most competitive race in WSOP history ended (for now) with one of the three-multi bracelet winners from 2018 in front. Shaun Deeb played an incredible amount of volume and is 90 percent of t
  16. Another busy day! Three more bracelets were won on Saturday at the 2018 World Series of Poker, one of which went to a former PocketFives no.1 player.

  17. Just over two weeks after winning a €50,000 Short Deck event at King's Casino in Rozvadov, Jonathan Depa picked up another short deck title on Thursday after beating Alex Foxen heads-up in the Poker Masters $10,000 Short Deck event. The last four cashes on Depa's Hendon Mob profile are all in the game of Short Deck. "Heaters are always fun," Depa said. "I don't really play that many tournaments. To win two tournaments in two weeks is pretty awesome and it's always nice when you're just basically winning every all in." [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][
  18. There’s a reason that summer in Las Vegas is often called ‘poker player summer camp’ and it’s not just because the World Series of Poker is going on.

Here's a quick look around the city at some of those non-WSOP tournaments keeping poker players in action.
  19. In the lead up to the World Series of Poker every year, there always ends up being a discussion about who the best player without a WSOP bracelet is. Two players whose names have come up in those conversations each permanently removed themselves from contention on Thursday by winning one of poker's most highly coveted trophies. Daniel Strelitz topped a final table that included Shannon Shorr, Maria Ho, and Ali Imsirovic to win the $5,000 No Limit Hold'em event while Yuval Brohnstein maneuvered his way to victory in the $1,500 NO Limit Deuce-to-Seven event. Those were just two of the eigh
  20. There may have only been one 2018 World Series of Poker bracelet winner within the Rio on Friday, but two bracelets were actually awarded. That’s because an online event played out into the early morning hours, as 657 PLO players took their shot on the virtual felt. There was still no winner at the time of publishing, so we’ll have to bring you that info tomorrow. Speaking of PLO, the $25K High Roller has reached a stacked six-handed final table which includes a former PocketFives no.1 player. Here’s everything you need to know about June 22 at the WSOP.

  22. [caption width="640"] Winning the K Triple Draw Championship bracelet was just part of Ben Yu's amazing day (WSOP photo)[/caption] To say that Ben Yu had a good day Monday at the 2017 World Series of Poker would probably be an understatement. First he battled through a typically difficult final table in the $10,000 Triple Draw Deuce to Seven Championship to win his second career bracelet. He then registered late for the $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship and finished Day 1 of that event with the biggest stack. His win was one of three bracelets awarded on Monday, while four other events
