  1. [caption width="640"] Jason receiving his second bracelet of the year from his father Rick.[/caption]The 2016 World Series of Poker has 40 events in the books, a bit over halfway, and Player of the Year race is heating up. A handful of high value tournaments are slated over the next couple weeks and even though Jason Mercier’s lead looks to be solid, a win or couple deep runs from a contender could end the Summer of Mercier. Simply put, a motivated Mercier is a player to be feared. The five-time bracelet winner won two this year and a third would not only etch his name in history as the seventh player in history to win three in a year, he stands to collect mind-numbing money from bracelet bets. Mercier has seven cashes so far, with five final tables, one runner-up and in four $10,000 championship events. In a one-week span Mercier earned 366.26 points in the Deuce to Seven win, 287.70 points in Razz and 434.24 in the HORSE victory. Additionally, all of his cashes have come in different disciplines and not a single No Limit Hold’em event. Martin Kozlov sits in second place after five cashes on the Series. He most recently won the $10,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em Championship and earlier this year he finished fifth in the $3,000 Six Max NLH event. He made a deep run in the Summer Solstice event, barely missing the final table in 11th place for $25,335. Paul Volpe is the first former PocketFives Number One ranked player to win a bracelet in 2016 and the last player over 1,000 points. Volpe has played the WSOP regularly since 2011 and has racked up 27 cashes since playing full time. Volpe began the summer with a fourth place finish in the $1,500 Dealers Choice event and followed that up with his second career bracelet in the Eight Game Mix for $149,943. His five cashes this year have come in five different games and most recently finished in 10th place in the Six Max Championship Kozlov took down. Benny Glaser has had a very unique Series – for starters he won two bracelets in four cashes for a total of $718,669. He first took down the $1,500 Omaha HiLo event and a few days later he took down the $10,000 Omaha HiLo championship. Glaser’s first cash of the summer came in the $1,500 No Limit Deuce to Seven event and a week later he final tabled the $10,000 No Limit Deuce to Seven Championship. His first career bracelet came in 2015 in the Triple Draw variant of the same game. Ryan Laplante has spent the most time in the cashout line with nine cashes on the Series. His largest came in his first career bracelet – the $565 Pot Limit Omaha event. He earned $190,328 to push his career WSOP earnings over the $500,000-mark. He has cashed in HORSE, Six Max No Limit Hold’em, PLO, Limit Hold’em and Omaha HiLo. WSOP Player of the Year Top Ten Standings Jason Mercier – 1,695.02 Martin Kozlov – 1,252.58 Benny Glaser – 1,156.57 Michael Semenov – 1,125.12 Ryan Laplante – 1,073.13 Ian Johns – 1,059.50 Paul Volpe – 1,044.15 David Vamplew – 998.25 Bart Lybaert – 984.90 Michael Gathy – 969.30
  2. [caption width="640"] Benny Glaser became the third player to win a second 2016 WSOP bracelet on Wednesday (WSOP photo)[/caption] While Jason Mercier continues to be the top story of the 2016 World Series of Poker, Benny Glaser is doing his best to grab some of the headlines as well. On Wednesday the British poker pro won his second bracelet of the summer in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship, taking it down just days after winning the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo event. Glaser joins Mercier and and Ian Johns as 2016 double-bracelet winners. Meanwhile Russian poker pro Andrey Zaichenko won the first bracelet of his career on Wednesday and Mercier made yet another Day 3. Event #32: Benny Glaser Goes Back-to-Back, Wins $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship Only three players returned for Day 4 of the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship and Benny Glaser, who had taken the chip lead late on Day 3, beat out Doug ‘Skippy’ Lorgeree and Matt Glantz to capture his second WSOP bracelet of the summer. “It’s surprising that I would win two gold bracelets, at all,” Glaser said. “But if I was going to win, it would have been in this game since this is my best game and the one I have played the most online.” Glaser’s win earned him $407,194 and pushed his 2016 WSOP earnings past the $700,000 mark. The 27 year old cherishes both of the bracelets he has won this summer but admitted the second one, the third of his career, might feel a little bit more special. “This win was more satisfying for multiple reasons. First, this final table was streamed and watched live whereas the other one wasn’t. The money was much bigger. And, going back to back just makes it feel more crazy and amazing. Jason Mercier finished eighth in this event for $39,269, his fifth cash of the summer. He now leads Glaser by almost 350 points in the race for WSOP Player of the Year. Final Table Payouts Benny Glaser $407,194 Doug Lorgeree $251,665 Matt Glantz $175,754 Grzegorz Trelski $125,125 Robert Campbell $90,846 Per Hildebrand $67,291 Todd Brunson $50,872 Jason Mercier $39,269 Felipe Ramos $30,965 Event #33: Adrian Mateos Leads $1,500 Summer Solstice into Day 4 Adrian Mateos sits atop the final 17 players in the $1,500 buy-in Summer Solstice event after Day 3. Mateos, who won the 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event and 2015 European Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event, bagged 1,763,000, which puts him over 450,000 ahead of any other player. Jon ‘PearlJammer’ Turner sits seventh with 904,000 while all-time online tournament earnings leader Chris Moorman is 15th after finishing Day 3 with 269,000. Among the 74 players who busted on Wednesday were Matt Giannetti (76th - $4,434), former #1-ranked player on PocketFives Aaron ‘ ‘ Gustavson (73rd - $4,434), James Akenhead (64th - $5,135) and Bruno Politano ($7,139).

This is so emotional for me. I cannot express what this means,” Zaichenko said. “In Russia, we have so many good players. I am just so glad to have my name now up there along with them.” Viatcheslav Ortynskiy won the first bracelet for Russia on Monday in the $3,000 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha event. Zaichenko credits a change in the games played in his native country for his success. “The last three years, I have been playing a lot more Limit poker. At first it was No- Limit, but now we play lots of Limit cash games in Russia. The result of these games in Russia is making us better here now (at the WSOP).” Jameson Painter finished runner-up and banked $72,878 in the process. Final Table Payouts Andrey Zaichenko - $117,947 Jameson Painter - $72,878 Guy Hareuveni - $46,992 Alexsandr Vinskii - $31,099 Adam Spiegelberg - $21,139 Andrii Nadieliaiev - $14,769 Andrew Kelsall - $10,614 Event #35: Thiago Nishijima Leads $5,000 Six Max No-Limit Hold'em Thiago Nishijima leads the final 21 players in what is arguably one of the most stacked No Limit Hold’em tournaments of the summer, the $5,000 Six Max NLHE event. Nishijima and Jason Koon are the only two players to finish with over 1,000,000 chips. Nishijima finished with 1,222,000 and Koon is right behind him with 1,142,000. WSOP bracelet winner Michael Gathy sits eighth with 724,000. Jake Schindler, Jonathan Little, Pratyush Buddiga, Felix Stephensen and Martin Finger all sit outside the top ten. While there were 197 players at the start of Day 3, only the top 82 earned any money. Included in the group of 61 players who busted but managed to cash were Jason Les (82nd - $7,466), Fabian Quoss ($7466), Dutch Boyd (68th - $7,595), Dietrich Fast (64th - $7,960), Cate Hall (62nd - $7,960), Ismael Bojang (53rd - $8,585) and Joe Hachem ($44th - $9,523). Ryan LaPlante, who won the $565 Pot Limit Omaha event in the opening week of the 2016 WSOP, finished 56th for his ninth cash this summer. There are nine different countries represented in the final 21 including Brazil, Spain, Austria, Poland, Norway, France, Australia, Belgium and the United States. Action resumes at Noon PT on Thursday. Top Ten Chip Counts Thiago Nishijima - 1,222,000 Jason Koon - 1,142,000 Saavedra Nunez - 994,000 Artur Koren - 808,000 Benjamin Reinhart - 796,000 Matthew Parry - 738,000 Alexander Lynskey - 728,000 Michael Gathy - 724,000 Samuel Bernabeu - 718,000 Thomas Boivin - 710,000 Event #36: Gleb Kovtunov Leads $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo into Day 3 Gleb Kovtunov might be the name at the top of the chip counts with just 13 players left in the $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo event but it’s almost impossible to ignore the guy sitting 11th. Jason Mercier has made yet another Day 3 in his quest for a third 2016 WSOP bracelet. Kovtunov bagged up 673,000 to finish just ahead of Timothy Burt (647,000), Per Hildebrand (597,000) and Fabrice Soulier (593,000). Mercier has just 96,000 - just a touch over three big bets - but seems confident he can find more magic in his bottle. Among the 47 players who didn’t survive Day 2 but did cash on Wednesday were Eli Elezra (60th - $3,763), James Obst (47th - $4,171), Mike Matusow (45th - $4,171), Marco Johnson (41st - $4,171), Robert Mizrachi (34th - $4,573) and Matt Savage (23rd - $5,942).

Kakel finished Day 1 with 151,800 to barely edge out Joe Serock for the lead. In fact, just 1,600 chips separate the top three players. Richard Austin ended the day with 149,200. Daniel Negreanu, who was excited to learn that Las Vegas had officially been granted an NHL expansion team on Wednesday, finished with 98,000, the 12th biggest stack. Other notables still the field include Dylan Linde, Toby Lewis, Juha Helppi, Matt Stout, Leif Force and Leo Wolpert. The event drew 776 players for a $1,047,600 prize pool with the eventual champion winning not only the bracelet, but $212,128. The top 117 will finish in the money with a min-cash worth $2,247.

And while Benny Glaser won his second bracelet on Wednesday, Ian Johns put himself in contention for his third by building a stack of 109,000 - the third highest. Other notables still in the field include Alexey Makarov, Joe McKeehen, Jonathan Duhamel, Jesse Martin, Matt Matros, Terrence Chan, Jeffrey Lisandro, Jason Somerville, Chris Klodnicki and Brock Parker. The final 64 players will play another ten levels beginning at 2 PM PT.

  3. [caption width="640"] Cesar Garcia was one of three WSOP bracelet winners on Saturday )WSOP photo)[/caption] Many poker players used to grinding day in and day out at the 2016 World Series of Poker took the weekend off for the Electric Daisy Carnival along with 100,000 other party-goers at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for a much-needed breather about halfway through the Series. But action pressed on and Saturday saw three bracelet winners and seven events in action. Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano Wins First WSOP Gold Bracelet Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano is mostly well-known for his success on the virtual felt as a top New Jersey player, but he broke through and won his first WSOP bracelet in an event he final tabled in 2012. “I’ve never won a live tournament before, at least nothing on this scale before,” Gagliano said. “I came close a few times and definitely wanted to get a win, so it’s nice to that over and done with.” “I’ve played plenty of tournaments before, it’s all just a matter of adjusting,” he added. “You have to play the tougher aggressive players differently than you play against your recreational players who are taking their one shot – It’s all about adjusting.” Gagliano was 16th in chips of 24 returning players at the start of Day 3, navitigated his way to the final table and on the 223rd hand of the final table he opened, Daniel Cooke shoved all in holding [poker card="ks"] [poker card="qc"] and Gagliano called holding [poker card="ah"] [poker card="9s"]. He hit a nine on the flop, faded the Broadway cards and took down the tournament. Final Table Payouts Michael Gagliano – $448,463 Daniel Cooke – $277,128 Shankar Pillai - $196,119 Remi Castaignon - $140,596 Zu Zhou - $102,120 Niall Farrell - $75,164 Michael Laake - $56,073 Darryll Fish - $42,405 Gavin O’Rourke - $32,514 Cesar Garcia Outduels Viliyan Petlshkov on Day 4 It was a tall order to crown a winner when 27 players returned for Day 3 and Cesar Garcia and Viliyan Petleshkov were the last two left standing when time ran out on the day. Petleshkov and Garcia played 76 hands of heads-up when they bagged up for the night. Petleshkov bagged the lead with 8.7 million and Garcia had 5.4 million when the returned and after 19 hands Garcia took down his first bracelet and $447,739. Garcia doubled up after flopping bottom two pair against Petleshkov’s flush draw. Garcia check-raised the flop and called all in to see the board blank and swing the counts his way of 10 million to 4.1 million respectively. The final hand saw Petleshkov shove with [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"], Garcia call with [poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"] and the board run all blanks for Garcia to collect just his fourth career WSOP cash. Final Table Payouts Cesar Garcia - $447,739 Viliyan Petleshkov - $276,660 Yuriy Boyko - $198,185 Adrian Buckley – $143,598 Kamel Mokhammad - $105,253 Craig McCorkell - $78,053 Craig Varnell - $58,569 Thiago Nishijima - $44,478 Anthony Spinella - $34,188 Benny Glaser Survives Marathon to Win Second Bracelet Almost a year to the day Benny Glaser won his first bracelet in a $1,500 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw event and he returned to the final day of play with 24 other players. He built a dominating chip lead at the final table, kept pressure on the short stacks and defeated Benjamin Gold heads-up. “Obviously, winning a gold bracelet is a massive goal. I hope to win more,” Glaser said after winning. “This is the game I put the most hands in online. So, perhaps I just am more used to this game since I play it all the time.” The final table featured bracelet winners Max Pescatori, Brandon Shack-Harris and Phillip Hui while Ari Engel, Allen Kessler and Thomas Muhlocker all returned for Day 3 but fell short of the final table. Final Table Benny Glaser - $244,103 Benjamin Gold - $150,828 Motohiro Kondo - $106,070 Phillip Hui – $75,627 Brandon Shack-Harris - $54,680 Zachary Milchman - $40,098 Ilya Krupin - $29,830 Max Pescatori - $22,517 Scott Packer - $17,250 Event 27: $1,000 Seniors Championship The record-breaking Seniors Championship advanced a staggering 675 players, exactly the number of in-the-money finishers, to Day 2 and 57 remained at the end of play. While that’s a huge number of players to eliminate, the event will almost certainly stretch to a fourth day to crown a winner. Paul Runge ended the day with the lead holding 1.24 million and only two other players bagged up million chip stacks – Robert Musser and Kenneth Ho. Toto Leonidas, Fred Berger and Pete Vilandos bring stacks to Day 3 also. Billy Baxter, Neil Blumenfeld, John Gale, Ken Aldridge and 2005 Main Event Final Tablist Scott Lazar all cashed in the event, but did not survive the day. The structure only calls for three days of play, but with 57 players, only ten levels of play until the hard stop and with huge pay jumps the experienced field has a long road ahead of them to even reach the final table. Top Ten Chip Counts Paul Runge – 1,240,000 Robert Musser – 1,215,000 Kenneth Hayo – 1,007,000 Deborah Fineberg – 901,000 Wesley Chong – 889,000 Toto Leonidas – 727,000 Victor Adams – 692,000 David Litt – 665,000 Scott Kelly – 639,000 Fred Berger – 614,000 Event 28: $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship The second of three Limit Hold’em events on the schedule wrapped up the Championship event on Day 2 with ten players after returning with 41. Jeff Thompson leads the final table as the only player over a million chips but has a long road ahead with a loaded field. Multiple bracelet winners Brian Rast, David Chiu, Bill Chen and Brock Parker also return for the final day with Ian Johns second in chips and the always dangerous Anh Van Nguyen lower down the leaderboard. Ronnie Bardah, Georgios Sotiropoulos and Mark Radoja cashed in the event but did make the final table. Marco Johnson, Howard Lederer, Dzmitry Urbanovich, Matt Glantz and Jeffrey Lisandro each returned for Day 2 but were eliminated short of the money. Top Ten Chip Counts Jeff Thompson - 1,047,000 Ian Johns – 800,000 Brian Rast – 731,000 Alexander Balynskiy – 700,000 David Chiu – 554,000 Sean Berrios – 507,000 Bill Chen – 411,000 Anh Van Nguyen – 378,000 Brock Parker – 284,000 Philip Tom – 90,000 Event 29: $1,500 No Limit Hold’em The weekend No Limit Hold’em benefitted from the Seniors Championship crowd and drew 1,796 entrants and 274 survivors bagged up chips for Day 2. Leading them all is Alexander Ziskin with 170,400 with David Vamplew and Tony Ruberto also finishing with top ten stacks. Hollywood’s James Woods, Matt Stout, Jeff Papola, Justin Young, Brandon Meyers and Daniel Weinman all bagged up above average stacks. The field juiced the prize pool to $2,412,450 to pay out the top 270 finishers, a trip to the final table locks up $31,736 and the winner earns $401,287 for a few days of work. Top Ten Chip Counts Alexander Ziskin – 170,400 Brock Wilson – 152,200 David Vamplew – 147,300 Julian Stuer – 144,000 Eric Brix – 135,100 Timothy Ulmer – 130,000 Tony Ruberto – 128,000 Javier Gomez – 125,500 Gabriele Patti – 122,000 Matthew Reed – 120,100 Event 30: $3,000 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha The Six Max Pot Limit Omaha event, a precursor the huge $25,000 PLO event later in the Series, drew 580 entrants and by day’s end 119 players survived. Las Vegas pro Randy Ohel holds the lead after putting 273,200 in the bag. Mike Watson, Christian Harder and Allan Le finished just outside the top stacks and Joey Ingram, Gordon Vayo, Jason Mercier, Max Silver and Daniel Negreanu also advanced to Day 2. Mercier is in the midst of a historic WSOP where he’s already won two bracelets and one runner-up in in a week in $10,000 events. Top Ten Chip Counts Randy Ohel – 273,200 Nick Schwarmann – 228,200 Sean Winter – 207,400 Joshua Ladines – 179,600 Christopher Frank – 174,400 Thibaut Klinghammer – 171,400 Aleksandr Denisov – 167,200 Henri Koivisto – 157,500 Joseph Couden – 152,400 Alex Manzano – 148,000 Super Senior Sunday While nine players convene for the Seniors Championship Final Table on the final day of the event, the $1,000 Super Seniors event, for those at least 65 years-old, kicks off at 10 am. The afternoon sees the $10,000 Omaha HiLo Championship kickoff at 3 pm.
  4. 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.

  6. History was on the line Wednesday as 15-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth found himself battling heads-up for a record-extending 16th WSOP title in the 2019 WSOP Europe €25,500 Mixed Games Championship. However, it was not meant to be for Hellmuth on this day as he ran into the heater of Switzerland’s Besim Hot, who defeated Hellmuth in heads-up play and took home the €385,911 first-place prize and his first WSOP gold bracelet. Besim finished Day 2 of the tournament with a massive chip lead and never found himself in very much trouble throughout the final table despite being up against some of poker’s toughest competition. As one might expect, the final table of the €25,500 Mixed Games Championship was loaded with some of poker's elite mixed game talent, including WSOP Player of the Year contender Daniel Negreanu, 2019 PSPC runner-up Julien Martini and 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event third-place finisher Alex Livingston. It took over two hours into the final table for the first player to fall. During a Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better round, Alex Livingston lost a big hand to Daniel Negreanu where Negreanu hit a high hand of two pair holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"][poker card="8c"] and showing [poker card="4s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="qh"][poker card="ad"]. The very next hand Livingston found himself all in and facing elimination against Hot who hit a ten-high straight on sixth street while Livingston made a set of aces. Seventh street didn’t improve Livingston’s hand and he bowed out in seventh place, taking home €38,389. Negreanu’s stack took a big hit in the Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better round and he found himself clinging to a short stack as the game changed to Razz. In Negreanu’s final hand of the tournament, he was at odds with Hellmuth, who was battling for the chip lead. Negreanu took the betting lead early in the hand but was raised all-in on fifth street where Negreanu committed the last of his chips. When the card were turned up Negreanu held [poker card="ax"][poker card="9x"]/[poker card="7x"][poker card="3x"][poker card="9x"] to Hellmuth’s [poker card="8x"][poker card="2x"]/[poker card="5x"][poker card="jx"][poker card="3x"]. Sixth street was the killer for Negreanu who double paired his board when he picked up a [poker card="7x"] and Hellmuth grabbed an [poker card="ax"]. Negreanu was drawing dead and exited in sixth place for €54,287. However, his deep run in this pivotal tournament provided him enough points to take over the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year race for the time being. In a Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better round partypoker ambassador Dzmitry Urbanovich mixed it up with France’s Julien Martini. Urbanovich completed holding a [poker card="9x"] and Martini made the call showing a [poker card="kx"]. Urbanovich led out on fourth and fifth street, and as Martini continued to call, his stack was starting to dwindle. Urbanovich bet again on sixth, Martini continued to call and on the seventh card, Urbanovich put Martini all-in. Martini, with less than one big blind behind, was forced to call showing down [poker card="2h"][poker card="8c"][poker card="tc"]/[poker card="kh"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="7s"] for a pair of deuces and a missed low draw. Urbanovich showed down two pair with his [poker card="qc"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3d"]/[poker card="9c"][poker card="3h"][poker card="ad"][poker card="qd"] hand, taking down a healthy pot and sending Martini to the rail in fifth place for €77,502. With four players left, during a No Limit Hold’em round, Benny Glaser found himself super short stacked. He put in a raise holding [poker card="jc"][poker card="8s"] but left himself a single chip behind. Urbanovich made the call with [poker card="9d"]9c] on the button and Hellmuth called from the big blind. The flop fell [poker card="qh"][poker card="th"][poker card="5h"] and Glaser tossed in his final chip. Urbanovich isolated with a raise and Hellmuth's cards hit the muck. Glaser needed help to remain in the tournament. The [poker card="qc"] hit the turn and as the [poker card="ad"] fell on the river, Glaser said his goodbyes to the table and headed to the cashier to pick up his €111,689 for his fourth-place finish. Despite picking up the knockout, Urbanovich was still looking up at both Hellmuth and Hot on the leaderboard. After losing a couple of big hands, one in O8 and another in Razz, Urbanovich was sitting on under ten big blinds. During the same Razz round that he lost a huge hand to Hellmuth, he found himself all-in, again facing Hellmuth. Urbanovich was drawing live to seventh street hoping to improve on his [poker card="6x"][poker card="2x"]/[poker card="kx"][poker card="7x"][poker card="qx"][poker card="4x"] hand versus Hellmuth’s [poker card="7x"][poker card="4x"]/[poker card="2x"][poker card="9x"][poker card="8x"][poker card="7x"]. But on the final card, Urbanovich picked up a [poker card="6x"], pairing his six leaving him dead to Hellmuth’s hand. Urbanovich busted in third place for €162,463. It was a familiar sight for World Series of Poker fans as Phil Hellmuth prepared to battle in hopes of extending his WSOP record and claim his 16th bracelet. However, Besim Hot was running like his namesake as the duo sat down to close out the tournament. From the onset, Hot continually chipped up as Hellmuth found himself losing hand after hand, no matter what game was being played. The final hand of the tournament was played in PLO as Hot raised on the button holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="js"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7h"] and Hellmuth defended with [poker card="ah"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"]. The flop came [poker card="tc"][poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"] and Hellmuth checked to Hot who slid out a bet. Hellmuth check-raised and Hot shipped. Hellmuth made the call, putting himself at risk, but holding the best hand. The turn was the [poker card="jc"], improving Hot a full house and leaving Hellmuth drawing to one of the final three aces. The river was the [poker card="4c"] which secured the hand and the tournament for Hot as Hellmuth fell just short of bracelet number 16, finishing as the runner-up for €238,509. In only his third ever WSOP cash, Besim Hot is the winner of the 2019 WSOPE €25,500 Mixed Games Championship for a career-high cash of €385,911 and his first WSOP gold bracelet. €25,500 Mixed Games Championship Final Table Payouts 1.
