  2. The last day of the PokerGO Cup brought with it the final table of the biggest buy-in event on the schedule and the potential for some drama with the PokerGO Cup leaderboard also still up for grabs. Cary Katz figured prominently in both outcomes on his way to winning Event #8 ($100,000 NLHE) and seven-figure score. Daniel Negreanu, just 24 hours removed from his first live tournament win in more than eight years, was one of five players still alive. A third place finish or better would give Negreanu the PokerGO Cup leaderboard title while Sam Soverel, who held a 3-1 chip lead over his next
  3. Jason Koon started the final table of PokerGO Cup Event #6 ($25,000 NLHE) with the second shortest stack but over the course of four hours, Koon found himself on the winning side of a few dramatic hands and came through victorious for a $324,000 payday. The first hand of the final table gave Koon a much-needed boost. Chip leader John Riordan raised to 30,000 from UTG and Koon defended his big blind. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="5s"][poker card="4c"] and Koon check-called a bet of 20,000. The turn was the [poker card="9d"] and this time Koon check-called a bet of 75,000, leavi
  4. For the first two hours of the PokerGO Cup Event #3 ($10,000 NLHE) final table on Friday night, Sam Soverel was in control and on top. The last hour was a different story however as Dylan Linde overcame a 3-1 heads-up chip deficit to win $169,300 and a PokerGO Cup title. The event started on Thursday and had 53 entries to build a $530,000 prize pool with seven players returning for the final on Friday. The fireworks got underway five minutes after cards were in the air and it involved the two shortest stacks and the biggest one. Soverel, who started the final table with the chip lead, raise
  5. The 2021 U.S. Poker Open wrapped up Tuesday with David Peters earning his second consecutive USPO leaderboard title. The 12-event series at the PokerGO studios at the Aria in Las Vegas drew 837 total entries and awarded $11,084,000 in prize money. Throughout the two weeks of action, a number of familiar faces made their way to final tables while some less-than-well-known players seized a piece of the spotlight against some of the best players in the world. Peters' Personal Poker Playground Peters put on a performance for the ages on his way to winning the U.S. Poker Open leaderboard for a se
  6. A few of the world's top poker players have made a habit of shining bright in the short history of the U.S. Poker Open. Sunday night in Las Vegas, another of those players added yet another title to his growing collection and moved to within striking distance of the current leaderboard leader. David Peters topped the 27-entry field in Event #10 ($10,000 Short Deck) to collect his second U.S. Poker Open title of the year and $124,200. Peters won Event #7 ($10,000 No Limit Hold'em) earlier in the week. The win moved him 116 points behind the current U.S. Poker Open leaderboard leader Ali Imis
  7. It seems like every high roller series at the PokerGO studios has been very good to Ali Imsirovic. Once again, the 24-year old Imsirovic was back posing for a winner’s photo on Saturday after he bested the 99-entry field of the U.S. Poker Open Event #9 ($10,000 No Limit Hold’em) for a $217,800 payday. Imsirovic, the 2018 Breakout Player of the Year, now has two USPO career victories under his belt to go along with his 2018 Poker Masters overall title. He’s cashed in four of the first nine USPO 2021 events with this being his third final table of the series and has now taken the lead on the
  8. Through the first four events of the 2021 U.S. Poker Open, some of the best players in the world have claimed victory by dominating the final table. On Tuesday night, Joey Weissman arrived at the final table of Event #5 ($10,000 NLHE) with a middle-of-the-pack stack and watched as Adam Hendrix built up a monster stack and appeared to be on his way to claiming victory. That's when Weissman completely turned the tables and came back from holding just 14% of the chips in play when heads up play began to eliminate Hendrix and put an exclamation point on his comeback. Down to just 11 big blin
  9. Take a quick look at Isaac Haxton's live tournament results over the past few years and you might be surprised by the lack of first place finishes. Considered by many on the high roller scene to be one of the best poker players on the planet, Haxton hasn't won a tournament since January 2017. Haxton's streak of 32 High Roller event cashes without a win came to an end on Tuesday though as Haxton took down Event #4 ($10,000 Short Deck Hold'em) of the 2018 Poker Masters. The win, coupled with a sixth and a fourth place finish in two previous Poker Masters events, have put Haxton just 30 points
  10. A few days ago Cary Katz contemplated skipping the opening few days of the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure altogether and flying his family to Atlanta to watch his alma mater, the University of Georgia Bulldogs, play in the NCAA Championship football game. He didn't though, and Monday night, just minutes after the game kicked off, Katz capped off an impressive three-day run to win the $100,000 Super High Roller for nearly $1.5 million. "I did think about flying to the game to watch it, but decided I'd rather watch it here with my family, even if it's not live," said Katz. "If Georgia
  11. The Season XVIII World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic crowned its winner on Saturday, with Alex Foxen topping the record-breaking field of 1,035 entries to win the $1.694 million first-place prize. "It feels, I don't know… surreal," Foxen said in the moments following the win. "It’s kind of hard to put into words, but it feels amazing. The last time I got to this spot, I was a little bit disappointed in the way that I played heads up. It’s just incredible to get the opportunity again and be fortunate enough to pull out the win. I don’t have words." Back in Season XVI, Foxen
  12. Shaun Deeb and Brandon Adams both bagged up chip leads in "post-lim" events in the shadows of the Main Event at the 2019 World Series of Poker on Tuesday. Those two were the headliners in two of the five events outside of the Main Event on the calendar but Dan Zack also put on a show in his pursuit of WSOP Player of the Year honors. Brandon Adams Leads $50,000 Final Fifty Final Table Brandon Adams has already won one WSOP bracelet this summer and on Tuesday he took a gigantic step towards winning a second one. Adams finished Day 2 of the $50,000 Final Fifty event with the chip lead and jus
  13. [caption width="640"] Daniel Negreanu and Kevin Hart are just two players that could round out the field of the PokerCentral Super High Roller Bowl (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Just about two weeks ago, Aria poker room management was faced with a difficult decision. When registration opened for the 2017 PokerCentral Super High Roller Bowl, a total of 54 players put down a deposit to lock up their spot in the $300,000 buy-in event. Only problem was there were only 35 spots open to the public while the other 15 spots in the 50-player event were being held for invited players only. Degens

  15. It's getting to the point where Stephen Chidwick winning a U.S. Poker Open event isn't news. Tuesday night in Las Vegas the British poker pro picked up his fourth career USPO title, beating Cary Katz heads up to win Event #6, the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. It's his second USPO win in 2019 giving him two wins in each year the tournament series has existed. Chidwick, who won the USPO title last season, now leads the overall standings this year with just four events remaining. Chidwick started Tuesday's final table with the chip lead and, along with Anthony Zinno, was one of just two pla

Here are the winners from a tremendous week of poker in Sin City. The biggest winners overall from these high buy-in events, excluding the $10,400 Main Event, were Jake Schindler, Jason Koon, Seth Davies, Chris Huniche
  18. Back in September, Ali Imsirovic put on a bit of a show on his way to winning the 2018 Poker Masters Purple Jacket. On Monday night, the 24-year-old eliminated his final three opponents over a 20-minute span to win the $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em event at the 2019 US Poker Open. Final Table Payouts 1. Ali Imsirovic - $442,500 2. Cary Katz - $295,000 3. Dan Shak - $206,500 4. Nick Petrangelo - $147,500 5. Kristen Bicknell - $118,000 6.

  21. Jared Bleznick has had a few close calls in live tournament play over the years, most notably at the World Series of Poker where he had a runner-up finish in 2013 and three third places finishes, one in 2017 and two this past summer.

  22. James Chen returned to the final table of the World Series of Poker Europe €250K Super High Roller with the shortest stack among the seven remaining players on Friday while Dominik Nitsche stood alone atop the chip counts. Over 6.5 hours of play, Chen overcame his short stack to go on to win his first career bracelet and a €2.8 million score while Nitsche suffered through an almost unimaginable turn of events. Nitsche, who won the €111,111 High Roller for One Drop event at WSOP Europe 2017, couldn't have had more go wrong for him just after cards were in the air. Christoph Vogelsang and Che
  23. As you might know, on Tuesday night, PocketFives was camped out at Borgata in Atlantic City watching the finale of the first ever live PocketFives Open. Accordingly, we missed the premiere of ESPN's coverage of the Big One for One Drop, which created such a buzz in the mainstream world that we felt compelled to record a rerun and write about what ESPN commentator Lon McEachern argued could qualify as the "worst beat in the history of tournament poker." --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsson Poker, a leading global online gaming provider.

  25. In breaking news Tuesday, the World Series of Poker added a new bracelet event as part of the 2019 WSOP schedule. Starting Monday, July 8, the 'Final Fifty' has a $50,000 buy-in and makes for the 90th gold bracelet event of the summer. WSOP officials confirmed the addition of the event shortly after it hit the website and began making the rounds on social media. As it is an open gold bracelet tournament, the Final Fifty will count towards WSOP Player of the Year rankings. "I don't think it has a huge effect [on WSOP Player of the Year] because it was added in enough time," Daniel Negrean
