  1. [caption width="640"] Paul Petraglia topped the World Poker Tour bestbet Bounty Scramble field to win his first WPT title. (WPT photo)[/caption] In the history of the World Poker Tour, no player has ever won the same event twice. Sam Panzica had a chance to be the first to do it on Wednesday, but ran into local player Paul Petraglia who played his way to victory, forcing Panzica to settle for runner-up in the event he won last year. Shankar Pillai came to the final table with just 14 big blinds and lasted just 24 hands. Pillai moved all in from middle position for his last 150,000, Darren Elias called from the cutoff and Petraglia defended from the small blind. The flop came [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8h"] and Elias and Petraglia both checked. They also checked through the [poker card="9s"] turn and [poker card="8s"] river. Pillai showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] for a flopped top pair, but Petraglia turned over [poker card="qd"][poker card="qc"] for top set, Elias mucked [poker card="ah"][poker card="7c"] and Pillai was out in sixth. Just 13 hands later, Guarav Raina saw his run end thanks to a bad beat delivered by Panzica. Raina moved all in from the cutoff for 355,000 and Panzica called from the big blind. Raina was ahead with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"] to Panzica's [poker card="th"][poker card="ts"], but the [poker card="td"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"] flop changed everything. Raina was unable to catch up on the [poker card="kd"] turn and [poker card="8c"] river and was out in fifth place. Elias, who was aiming to be the first four-time winner in WPT history, picked off another John Esposito in a blind-vs-blind battle. Action folded to Esposito in the small blind and he moved all in for 1,155,000 and Elias called from the big blind. Eposito turned over [poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"] but got bad news when Elias showed [poker card="th"][poker card="ts"]. The board ran out [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4h"][poker card="5c"] to give Elias the pot and send Esposito out in fourth. After that hand, Elias had 73% of the chips in play but over the course of the next 24 hands, anything that could go wrong for Elias, did. On his final hand, Panzica button-raised to 125,000 and Elias,down to 24 big blinds, moved all in for 1,435,000 and Panzica called. Elias turned over [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"] and Panzica showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"][poker card="3h"] flop changed everything though and neither the [poker card="6s"] turn or [poker card="4d"] river were able to save Elias from a third place result. Heads up play began with Petraglia holding 57% of the chips in play. Panzica changed the narrative over the course of the next 2.5 hours, taking the chip lead from Petraglia once and even holding a 9-2 chip lead at one point. Petraglia wouldn't be denied though and battled back to regain the lead and eventually finished off Panzica. Petraglia raised to 350,000 and Panzica called. Panzica check-raised all after the [poker card="8h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5d"] flop and Petraglia called and tabled [poker card="9s"][poker card="7s"] for a flopped straight while Panzica showed [poker card="jh"][poker card="3h"] for a flush draw. The [poker card="8c"] turn kept Petraglia ahead and the [poker card="2c"] river kept him there to eliminate Panzica in second place and give Petraglia his first WPT title and $315,732. Final Table Payouts Paul Petraglia – $315,732 Sam Panzica – $210,783 Darren Elias – $135,548 John Esposito – $86,440 Gaurav Raina – $66,674 Shankar Pillai – $55,191
  2. Almost everybody who has entered a poker tournament has experienced this at some point; you look down at your stack and notice you're desperately short. It feels like it's only a matter of time before you're eliminated. Earlier this week Tony Tran was in that position in the World Poker Tour bestbet Bounty Scramble. Staring at just two big blinds with the blinds fast approaching him, Tran was all but out. And then he just couldn't lose a pot. Tran completed the comeback story Monday night, beating Jake Schwartz heads-up to win the bestbet Bounty Scramble, $341,486 and a seat in the WPT Tournament of Champions. Tran started the final table fifth in chips with only Dominique Mosley behind him. Things didn't start off strong for Tran though. After picking off a Ray Qartomy bluff, Tran found himself in the middle of a hand that could have seen his tournament end relatively early. Mosley moved all in for 340,000 from the cutoff and Tran defended from the small blind. Schwartz re-raised to 850,000 from the big blind and Tran made it 1,400,000. Schwartz took his time before moving all in for 5,185,000. Tran folded, showing [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"], and then felt relief as Schwartz tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"]. Mosley flipped over [poker card="js"][poker card="ts"] and then watched the board run out [poker card="5h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="3d"][poker card="7d"] to cement his elimination in sixth place. Nine hands later, with Schwartz in control of nearly half of the chips in play, another player was sent packing. From UTG, Schwartz raised to 110,000 before Ping Liu announced he was all in for 920,000 from the cutoff. Ray Qartomy re-raised all in for 1,305,000 and Schwartz folded. Liu turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="4c"] and needed some help after Qartomy showed [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="8c"][poker card="5h"] flop changed nothing for Liu and once the [poker card="9s"] turn and [poker card="6d"] river completed the board, he was eliminated in fifth place. Qartomy's run only lasted another two hours. Down to just nine big blinds, Qartomy moved all in from the button and Tran tank-called from the big blind. Qartomy was behind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qh"] to Tran's [poker card="ad"][poker card="7s"]. The [poker card="td"][poker card="8h"][poker card="2s"] flop left Qartomy with some hope, but the [poker card="as"] turn left him with just four outs to Broadway to stay alive. The river was the [poker card="5c"] and he was eliminated in fourth. Over the course of the next 90 minutes, Tran took over the chip lead before sending another player packing. Schwartz folded his button and Kelly Minkin completed from the small blind before Tran raised to 480,000 from the big blind. Minkin responded by moving all in for 2,260,000 and Tran snap-called, tabling [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"] in the process. Minkin showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="3c"] and needed some help to stay in the tournament. The [poker card="as"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3s"] flop gave Minkin two pair, but the [poker card="4h"] counterfeited Minkin's hand and the [poker card="9h"] river completed her elimination in third place. Heads up began with Tran holding 59% of the chips in play and it took just 90 minutes for him to complete the comeback. Tran raised to 300,000 from the button and Schwartz moved all in for 2,305,000. Tran snap-called and again tabled [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"] which put him ahead of Schwartz who showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="5d"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="8h"][poker card="5s"] flop paired both players and Schwartz was unable to improve on the [poker card="4c"] turn or [poker card="3s"] river and was eliminated in second place. This year's bestbet Bounty Scramble drew 356 players, up slightly over the 323 runners it drew in 2017. Final Table Payouts Tony Tran - $341,486 Jake Schwartz - $228,590 Kelly Minkin - $146,973 Ray Qartomy - $95,684 Ping Liu - $73,734 Dominique Mosley - $60,981
