  1. Seven months after falling short at the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event U.S. final table, and one night after busting in fifth in another bracelet event, Ryan Hagerty battled his way through a WSOP event and emerged with the gold hardware that had previously eluded him. Hagerty, the fourth place finisher back at the hybrid final table of the 2020 WSOP Main Event, topped a field of 694 entries in Event #23 ($500 NLHE Turbo) Friday night. Thanks to the turbo format, final table bustouts were fast and furious. The first coming less than a minute after the final table began. From UTG, 'Lu
  2. The 2018 World Series of Poker continues its trek towards the Main Event, with two new bracelet winners created after another busy session on Thursday. One player outlasted a final table which included some legends of the game, while another picked up his first piece of jewellery, and a bunch of bounties to go with it. Meanwhile, there are just four players remaining in the $3K Big Blind Ante NLHE, and a former PocketFives no.1 player leads the final 13 in the $10K Razz. All of that and more in our recap of June 28’s action. Joey Couden Overcomes Tough Final Table to Win First Bracelet

For the second time in just two days, Calvin 'cal42688' Anderson broke his own record for most Spring Championship of Online Poker titles by taking down Event #26 - High ($1,050 Omaha Eight or Better) for just over $26,000. Anderson now has 10 SCOOP titles all-time, making him the most decorated player in the history of the series. Anderson beat out a final table that included Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski, Connor 'blanconegro' Drinan and Vladimir 'vovtroy' Troyanovskiy. Anderson, Sikorski and Drinan agreed to a three-way chop with each player pocketing a minimum of $20,000. The Medium a
  4. Day 1C of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event was definitely one for the record books, but it was also one of the strangest days in the 50-year history of the event. As more and more players piled into the Rio, two were escorted out by police and then Mother Nature had her say as well, as an earthquake shook Las Vegas and disrupted the tournament in an unprecedented way. Starting Flight Record Broken, Overall Record Close Last summer, 4,571 players made Day 1C of the 2018 Main Event the largest starting flight in the history of the WSOP. That record fell on Friday, as 4,879 players
