  1. [caption width="640"] Doug Polk earned his third career bracelet after taking down the 1,111 One Drop High Roller Monday (WSOP photo)[/caption] Doug Polk and Jesse Martin both took home World Series of Poker bracelets on Monday with Polk winning the $111,111 One Drop High Roller and Martin showing off his Triple Draw skills. Monday also saw another busy day in Colossus III and a completely unknown storming to the top of the $1,500 Dealer's Choice event after Day 1. Colossus III Inches Closer to a Champion Just 41 players remain out of the 18,054 that entered Colossus III, with Raul Martinez Requena enjoying the view from the top of the chip counts after Day 2. Requena put 5,270,000 in the bag, which put him barely ahead of Erkut Yilmaz, who wound up with 5,150,000. They were the only two players to bag more than 5,000,000 at the end of the day. Other notables still in the field include Matt Affleck, WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown winner Tony Sinishtaj, Luke Vrabel, Ralph Massey and Alex Masek. Day 3 begins at 2 pm PT Tuesday. Top 10 Chip Counts Raul Martinez Requena - 5,270,000 Erkut Yilmaz - 5,150,000 Pojana Jenne - 4,700,000 Christopher Mitts - 4,680,000 Taylor Black - 4,275,000 Thomas Pomponio - 4,265,000 Hugo Perez - 3,935,000 Ardavan Yazdi - 3,735,000 Gavin O'Rourke - 3,000,040 Matt Affleck - 2,890,000 Doug Polk Outduels Bertrand Grospellier for One Drop High Roller Bertrand Grospellier entered the final table of the $111,111 One Drop High Roller with the chip lead and his eyes clearly set on the $3,686,865 first place prize money. Doug Polk had other ideas. Starting the day with just the sixth biggest stack, Polk worked his way through a final table that included Andrew Robl, Rainer Kempe, Martin Jacobson, Dario Sammartino and Grospellier to win the third bracelet of his career. Last summer Polk and Upswing Poker business partner Ryan Fee teamed up to win the $1,000 Tag Team NLHE event. In 2014, Polk won the $1,000 Turbo NLHE event. This one was a little bit different though. "In those events, the money was really not a very big deal," said Polk. "Whereas this is huge for me. This is a lot of money. Just the fact that it's... I'm sorry, I'm struggling for words right now. It's surreal. To win that much more money against tough people in a real, world-class event. It's way different." At one point during play, Polk and others at the table stopped play over concerns the cards they were playing with were marked. Defending champs Doug Polk and Ryan Fee still managed to find some time to play the event even though Polk was busy winning a bracelet on his own. While they were unable to defend their title on Monday, they did put up a min-cash in the event. From the "You've Got to Be F****** Kidding Me" department, Andy Bloch teamed with Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer on one team. The trio finished the day with 23,000 chips. Top 10 Chip Counts John Hulett - Deepinder Singh - 146,000 Brian Yoon - Michael Gagliano - 130,400 Kiryl Radzivonau - Mikhail Semin - 116,600 Ben Yu - Jacob Wilson - 115,600 Allyn Shulman - Jessica Horan - Barry Shulman - 109,000 Team Dees - 102,000 Team Green - 90,000 Team Mariz - 80,000 Timothy Rhoda - Errol Massey - 79,900 Brian Pinkus - Michael Pinkus - 71,600 Troy Evans On Top of Dealers Choice Event Giving players their choice of 19 different games to play means only the best all-around players should rise to the top as the $1,500 Dealers Choice event advances. It seems Troy Evans either didn't know this or is the best-kept secret in poker. Evans, who apparently has no previous tournament results at all, bagged up the biggest stack at the end of Day 1, finishing with 76,200. There are fewer surprises in the other 90 players who survived from an original 364. Justin Bonomo is second in chips, defending champ Lawrence Berg is fourth, Marco Johnson is fifth. Others still in contention include Chip Jett, Jeff Madsen, Mark Gregorich, Jon Turner, David Benyamine, Robert Mizrachi, Brandon Cantu, John Racener and Justin Young. The 91 players get back at it 2 pm PT on Tuesday Top 10 Chip Counts Troy Evans - 76,200 Justin Bonomo - 70,900 Raol Encinas - 68,000 Lawrence Berg - 63,300 Marco Johnson - 61,300 Chip Jett - 59,500 Kyle Bowker - 55,400 Jeff Madsen - 49,600 Alan Richardson - 49,500 Mark Gregorich - 49,000
  2. [caption width="640"] Bertrand Grospellier takes a chip lead into the final table of the One Drop High Roller (Neil Stoddart photo / PokerStars)[/caption] There goes the first weekend at the 2017 World Series of Poker. No bracelets were awarded on Sunday, but a couple of tournaments did reach a one-table set up. That means there will be two final tables taking place today (Monday), and one of them is the biggest buy-in of them all. Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier takes huge chip lead into One Drop final table Just 23 players returned at the beginning of Day 3, but now only nine remain in Event #6: High Roller for One Drop - $111,111 No-Limit Hold’em. It’s not surprising to see such a stacked final table line-up, nor is it surprising to see that Bertrand ‘ElkY ‘ Grospellier has held onto his overnight chip lead. But what is surprising is how much ElkY leads the field by; he has almost twice as many chips as his nearest opponent, 2014 WSOP Main Event champ Martin Jacobson. Here’s a look at how the final nine stack up: Bertrand Grospellier - 16,825,000 Martin Jacobson - 8,890,000 Dario Sammartino - 7,975,000 Chris Moore - 7,600,000 Andrew Robl - 6,670,000 Doug Polk - 6,090,000 Rainer Kempe - 5,760,000 Michael Kamran - 3,470,000 Haralabos Voulgaris - 2,865,000 Dan Shak is the unfortunate soul who bubbled in 21st place, and it was in brutal fashion. He got the last of his money in with [poker card="ah"][poker card="jd"] up against Scott Seiver’s [poker card="js"][poker card="5d"], and was in a dominating position to double up. But the board ran out [poker card="th"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="ac"][poker card="2c"] to give Seiver a straight. From there we lost Connor Drinan (20th - $166,666), Nick Petrangelo (19th - $166,666), recent bracelet winner Igor Kurganov (18th - $166,666), Simon Lam (17th - $166,666), Dan Colman (16th - $187,772), Charlie Carrel(15th - $187,772), Scott Seiver (14th - $216,999), Salman Behbahani (13th - $216,999), Byron Kaverman (12th - $257,072), Antonio Esfandiari(11th - $257,072), and finally 14-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth on the final table bubble (10th - $312,006). Everyone remaining is guaranteed $312,006, increasing up to the massive $3,686,865 first-place prize. This tournament has given ElkY his first six-figure score in four years, and if he can ride that chip lead to the title, the huge cash will eclipse the $3.4 million he banked back in 2008. The Team PokerStars Pro was on a tear yesterday, eliminating Kurganov, Carrel and Seiver. Meanwhile, Doug Polk is looking for his third WSOP bracelet, and Jacobson seeks his second. It’s sure to be a thrilling final table. Event #7: $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball reaches unofficial final table While the cameras are pointed towards the One Drop, another event played down to an unofficial final table of seven. The $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball event had 225 total entries, offering a first-place prize of $130,948, and there are several big names still vying for the bracelet. James ‘Andy McLEOD’ Obst led the final table earlier in the night, but finished the day sixth of seven in chips, in front of Jared Bleznick who comes in tomorrow as the short stack. It’s Terry ‘Doc’ Jennings who leads the pack, followed by Jesse Martin who won his only bracelet in the $10,000 2-7 Lowball (Event #43) at the 2013 WSOP. The final seven shape up as follows: Terry Jennings - 618,000 Jesse Martin - 545,000 Chris Bjorin - 449,000 Daniel Hirleman - 408,000 Brant Hale - 315,000 James Obst - 279,000 Jared Bleznick - 179,000 Barry Greensteinjust missed out on a final table spot, busting late into the night (9th place for $9,502). Other notable bust-outs include Ian Johns (12th place for $7,385) and Lyle Berman (20th place for $4,925), while Jason Mercierbubbled. Mike Gorodinsky tops Day 1 field in $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship After ten levels of play in the prestigious $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship, it’s none other than 2015 WSOP Player of the Year Mike Gorodinsky who leads the way. A total of 154 entries created an impressive $1,447,600 prize pool, meaning the winner will pick up $388,795 to go along with the bracelet. That starting field was whittled down to 64 survivors, including Daniel Negreanu, Dan Shak, David ‘ODB’ Baker, Anthony Zinno, Mike Matusow, Jeff Lisandro, and the man who took this event down last year, Benny Glaser. Here’s how the top ten counts look coming back tomorrow, with the blinds at 4K/8K: Mike Gorodinsky - 304,000 Kyle Miaso - 302,000 Iraj Parvizi - 263,000 Ilya Dyment - 240,500 Dan Shak - 233,000 Daniel Negreanu - 224,500 Ray Dehkharghani - 206,500 Tom Koral - 192,500 Marco Johnson - 192,000 David "ODB" Baker - 190,000 Plenty of big names sat down to take a shot in this event, but those who didn’t make it through include Todd Brunson, Erik Seidel, David Benyamine, Phil Hellmuth, Nick Schulman, Jason Mercier, Allen Kessler, Shaun Deeb, Phil Galfond, Ben Yu, Ismael Bojang, Jon Turner, Brandon Shack-Harris, Bart Hanson and Valentin Vornicu. Day 1F of THE COLLOSSUS III ends The Day 1 flights of THE COLLOSSUS III $565 No Limit Hold'em have now come to an end, as Day 1E and Day 1F wrapped up today. The former attracted 3,966 entries, with the latter just behind that at 3,923 entries. Neil Mittleman bagged up the chip lead with 430,000 at the end of Day 1E, with 147 players moving on to Day 2. Later in the day, it was Ardavan Yazdiwho would end 1F as the biggest stack with 588,000, followed by Harry Arutyunyan(504,000) and Jordan Polk(487,000). Those three also sit in the overall top five stacks from all six Day 1 flights, which look like this: Ardavan Yazdi - 588,000 Thomas Boivin - 538,000 Harry Arutyunyan - 504,000 Jordan Polk - 487,000 Newton Deleon - 433,000 This monster even drew a total of 18,053 entries, and 1F had several well-known survivors including Darren Rabinowitz (393,000), Matt Affleck(272,000), Ralph Massey(219,000), Ryan Laplante(155,000), Cate Hall(138,000), andJeff Gross (28,000). However, where there are survivors there must be casualties. Some of the notable players who failed to make it through today include Maria Ho, Kristen Bicknell, Joe Cada, Kenny Hallaert, Loni Harwood, Jessica Dawley, Jamie Kerstetter, William Kassouf, Upeshka De Silva, and Ben Zamani. The Day 1 field sizes break down as follows: 1A - 2,756 1B - 1,982 1C - 3,102 1D - 2,324 1E - 3,966 1F - 3,923 Day 2 kicks off Monday with all eyes set on the $1 million first-place prize.
  3. [caption width="640"] Daniel Negreanu is taking a new approach to tournaments after spending a few months working with coaches (WPT photo)[/caption] Daniel Negreanu's first tournament score was over 20 years ago. Since then he's become poker's all-time leading money earner with $35,269,814 in winnings and become one of the most widely recognized poker players in the world, if not the most. And yet the 42-year-old recently realized he needed to go back to school if he wanted to continue to consider himself elite. After posting just one cash - an eighth-place finish for $102,000 - in five PokerMasters events, Negreanu looked around the table and recognized that the high roller tournaments were being dominated by one group of players, and if he was going to continue to play in them, he needed to change some things about his approach. "I've been playing poker 20 years, so I know the difference between running bad and playing bad or being outclassed. I know I had been running bad in those things, there's no question, but there's no real value in focusing on that stuff because it's out of your control," said Negreanu. "What I can focus on, what about the little spots? I'm getting outplayed in those. And that was happening more than I'd like." The Poker Masters events allowed Negreanu to get a better-than-front-row view as to what the German players were doing and how they were dominating the high rollers. "It became pretty obvious to me that as a team, not in any collusive way, the Germans have worked together to become really, really good at this specific format and they're sharing information with each other," said Negreanu. "So I knew that in order for me to be able to compete that I needed to find some people that I could do that with today, that's more up to date on what's available in terms of learning tools." While trying to figure out what his approach should be or who he should start working with, Negreanu's agent, Brian Balsbaugh, mentioned that he knew of two players who were interested in taking on more coaching projects and might be right up his alley. Negreanu was skeptical at first, but agreed to meet with them and hear their pitch. "I really liked what they had to share. They showed me some data, and they showed me some flaws in other peoples systems and I said, 'Let's make this thing work'," said Negreanu. "I went into partnership with them to work hard for two to three months, three to four times a week at the house for five or six hours a day. It's been a combination of a lot of different things we're studying and I'd say we're probably 25-30% of the way down. There's a lot more to go." As Negreanu sat down with "Matt and MJ" for their first coaching session, Negreanu found himself intimidated by what they were coaching and wondered if he'd ever be able to pick it up and change his game. "Then a couple of hours in, I was like 'Wait - I get it!' I was starting to get it. For 20 years in poker, I've been thinking 100% exploitatively, just do things based on what your opponents perceive of you. So learning how to come from a more game theory baseline was totally alien to me. I didn't grow up with that. It was a little hard in the beginning, but it's really helped a lot of balance and aggression to my game," said Negreanu. German players such as Fedor Holz, Steffen Sontheimer and Stefan Schillhabel have turned the high roller poker world on its head over the past few years by emphasizing the game theory optimal approach to the game. While that's a big part of what Negreanu is learning now, it's not everything he's working on. "I love the way they teach things because they're essentially a hybrid. They're not teaching me how to play GTO, because GTO is not the best way to play, it's just not. Theoretically, exploitative play is better. The problem with exploitative play is you become exploitable," said Negreanu. "What I think about now is what would be the GTO line if I was playing a robot? Then I deviate by saying, well this guy's not a robot, he folds way too often, so I'm going to up my bluffing frequency an extra 20-30% or this guy never folds so I'm going to go down. So I'm deviating from what would be considered the correct play against a robot." After taking time off and focusing on re-tooling his game, Negreanu jumped back into action last week at the Bellagio for a $100,000 Super High Roller event, eventually finishing runner-up behind Dan Smith and earning $936,000 in the process. While he ultimately didn't win the event, Negreanu's quite happy with the outcome not only because it came with a huge cash score, but proved to him he's on the right path. "I like the results. The results are good. I essentially feel like I won that tournament. I got it in with 82% for all the chips and I did everything I could to win that tournament. I felt really, really good about a wide variety of things," said Negreanu.
  4. [caption width="640"] PokerStars returns Prague with a 43-event schedule over 12 days beginning on December 7[/caption] All the presents in the Twelve Days of Christmas are nice and all, but for poker players from around the world twelve days of non-stop poker action is what they really want for the holidays and the PokerStars Championship Series is more than happy to oblige. From December 7-18 the PokerStars Championship series returns to Prague, the largest city in the Czech Republic, for their final stop of the calendar year, PokerStars Championship Prague. The festival includes a little something for everyone in the 43-event schedule, including the €5,300 Main Event. The Hilton Prague Hotel will once again play host to the competition, as it has ever since PokerStars began bringing players to Prague back during the European Poker Tour Season 4 in 2007. One of the more popular winter destinations for players, both for the action and the city that surrounds it, many memorable moments have been made over the years in Prague for the PokerStars crew. In 2009, local grinder Jan Skampa won the main event for over $1 million and two years later the live poker world was introduced to German superstar Martin Finger when he won his EPT Main Event in Prague. Of course, just last year, Dutch player Jasper Meijer was crowned the final EPT champion and as he hoisted the trophy in Prague, the final stop of Season 13, it marked the final stop of the entire tour. It was the end of the EPT era. Now PokerStars is back in Prague for the first time since that emotional finale, ready to start new traditions and anoint new champions in the Golden City. To help with that, PokerStars is bringing out a number of their pros to both mingle with the players as well as test their mettle on the felt. Andre Akkari, Marcin Horecki, Liv Boeree, Igor Kurganov and Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, who makes his home in Prague, have all confirmed to be on hand. While there is plenty to do in the city of Prague like check out the city’s Christmas markets, stroll across the Charles Bridge or visit the St. Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle, the tournament schedule PokerStars has put together is likely to keep dedicated grinders indoors and on the felt. The massive 43-event line-up hopes to have a number of events for players managing any type of bankroll. From the €330 multi-flight Prague Poker Cup for those looking for a big score on a modest buy-in to the €50,000 PokerStars Championship Super High Roller, which is likely to have big names vying for even bigger payouts and every buy-in level in between. Of course, all eyes will be on the €5,300 Main Event. Registering 1,192 runners in 2016, last years participants were the most the Prague stop had ever seen, making it a benchmark for comparison here at the start of the Championship years. The Main Event gets started on December 12 and has two starting days. Then, if one can't be in Prague, beginning on Day 2, would-be viewers can tune-in to all-star commentators James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton as they host featured-table action from the event on PokerStars.tv. PokerStars also is continuing their PokerStars Championship Player of the Year leaderboard promotion awarding the winner of the Prague tournament leaderboard a chance to win a $17,000 VIP package to the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and a seat at a $100,000 free roll in the winner-take-all 2017 PokerStars Championship Player of the Year Sit & Go. If that sounds like an amazing opportunity, one had better be prepared to bring their “A” game as the list of players that have already qualified include some of the best in the game, including Koray Aledmir, Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Daniel Dvoress, Nick Petrangelo, Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen and high roller regular Bryn Kenney. Online satellites to the Main Event are currently running on PokerStars and, just in case the tournaments scene doesn’t agrehoursth you, PokerStars will be running 24-hour a day cash games with all the action beginning on December 7.
  5. Day 12 of partypoker POWERFEST saw the $5,100 Championship Super High Roller NLHE PKO event take place as well as the crowning of 11 more event champions, including Chris Moorman, just two days after he picked up a silver medal. Event #75 Super High Roller: $5,100 Championship NLHE PKO saw 198 entrants come together to create a prize pool worth $1,009,800, with a six-figure sum up top for the winner. When the action got down to three-handed play, 'dafuqisdis' took the bronze medal for $52,222 + $19,662, which left 'barrm111' and 'SexyFunTimes' left to battle for the $100,930 top prize, mega-money bounties, and the POWERFEST title. Both players ultimately walked away with six-figure scores after 'barrm111' became the final player to exit for $73,260 + $34,368, and 'SexyFunTimes' was crownded victor for a massive $100,930 + $136,418 (in bounties) first-place prize. PocketFives all-time money-list leader Chris Moorman overcame the disappointment of falling at the final hurdle in Event #64 High Roller: $1,050 No Limit Hold’em just two days ago to pick up the gold medal in Event #76 High: $109 NLHE PKO for a score worth over $22,000. Moorman's second-place finish in Event #64 on Tuesday bagged the Brit an impressive $68,038 but also meant he narrowly missed out on the title. However, this time around Moorman made no mistake and defeated fellow former PocketFives #1-ranked player Caio Pessagno heads-up after a money-deal was agreed. Pessagno walked away with $13,595 for his part of the deal as well as $8,180 in bounties earnt, and Moorman banked $16,000 + $6,193 in bounties to go with the title. partypoker ambassador Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier just missed out on a POWERFEST title after he took second place in Event #77 High Roller: $1,050 NLHE Mix-Max. 'PaquesigasCerdo' took third place in the 489 player field for $51,750 before the heads-up battle between Grospellier and 'MoNddLeR' got underway. As well as the title, there was an extra $24,000 to play for, and with no deal agreed it was winner take all. On this occasion, Grospellier was unable to find a win and departed with the silver medal for $72,000, as 'MoNddLeR' took the title alongside $96,997. 'SchelampigaUhu' took down Event #74 High: $215 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max following a heads-up battle with former PocketFives #2-ranked Conor 'ADRIEN_BRODY' Beresford.

  7. GGPoker continues to find ways to make headlines. Just days after announcing they had partnered with the World Series of Poker for a WSOP Super Circuit Online series in May, the burgeoning online poker operator has added Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier as their newest ambassador. "I am excited to join GGPoker, the most ambitious poker site," Grospellier said. "With clear focus on software and making poker fun again, there has never been a better place to play online poker." [ptable zone="GG Poker"] Grospellier joins GGPoker after two years as a partypoker ambassador. Prior to that, he was a member of Team PokerStars for nearly 12 years. The Frenchman has $14.6 million in live earnings according to The Hendon Mob, highlighted by the 2008 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event win, the World Poker Tour Festa Al Lago title in 2008, and WSOP bracelets in 2011 and 2019. This is the third addition that GGPoker has made to their team in the last six months. In November, they signed Daniel Negreanu as an ambassador and in January Felipe Ramos joined the team. Both were also former members of Team PokerStars. The trio joined Bryn Kenney, who has represented GGPoker since March 2018. "Team GGPoker continues to go from strength to strength, and having ElkY on board just amplifies this even more," said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of GGPoker. "With a poker and esports legend like ElkY representing our brand, the GGPoker community will be in for a real treat - all I can recommend is to watch this space."
