  1. [caption width="640"] Chris Brammer joined Chris Moorman as former #1-ranked PocketFivers to capture 2017 WSOP bracelets (WSOP photo)[/caption] Saturday nights in Las Vegas are usually pretty wild, and Saturday night at the 2017 World Series of Poker was no different. Three bracelets were awarded (including one with a rowdy British rail) while two popular tournaments kicked off their Day 1s. Chris Brammer wins first bracelet, second for UK The rowdy British rail that came out for Chris ‘Moorman1’ Moorman’s bracelet win not long ago returned last night to see another former #1-ranked player on PocketFives, win his first WSOP bracelet. Chris ‘NigDawg’ Brammer overcame a tough final table and 505 players in total to win the $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em (30 minute levels), for a massive $527,555 payday. There to celebrate with him were the likes of Moorman, Sam 'The Squid' Grafton, James Akenhead and Tom Middleton. "I've been on both sides," he said after the win. "I remember being in the Pavilion Room up on the stage for that Six Max final table, and my rail was spilling over onto the floor. I was here last week for Chris Moorman's, and it's just amazing to be a part of it. You can't feel sad at any point, because there's just so much support behind you." Brammer had come close to WSOP success in the past, finishing fifth in the 2012 $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Six Max event. "That one hurt for a long time. I made a final table at World Series of Europe that same year, but there hasn't been any since, and I've been coming here every year. It's been a while.” Well, he’s now got that monkey off his back, besting the likes of Yevgeniy ‘Jovial Gent’ Timoshenko and Oliver Weis to capture his first major live title. "It was a turbo tournament, so the blind levels went up fairly quickly. That creates a lot of action, and it's important to win those all-ins. And I think I won pretty much all of them. I was dealt a lot of good cards. There were situations where I could shove into them and put pressure on them.” In the very first hand of heads-up play, Jett Schencker opened [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"] only for Brammer to put him all in with the [poker card="qh"][poker card="th"]. A ten on the flop was all she wrote. Final table payouts: Chris Brammer - $527,555 Jett Schencker - $326,051 Yevgeniy Timoshenko - $223,574 Rui Ye - $156,022 Tobias Ziegler - $110,845 Oliver Weis - $80,196 Michael Brinkenhoff - $59,107 Alex Foxen - $44,395 Diego Sanchez - $33,993 Ben Maya goes all the way in $1,500 Shootout [caption width="640"] Ben Maya surprised everybody - including himself - to win the ,500 NLHE Shootout (WSOP photo)[/caption] You’ve probably never heard of this new bracelet winner, but don’t worry. Even his friends don’t know he final tabled this event. “I’m shocked. All the people I play with will be shocked,” Ben Mayasaid after his win in the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Shootout. “I have my own business. I’m a realtor. There is no one following me at home. No one knows.” For his victory over the 1,025-strong field, Maya wins $257,764 and his first gold bracelet. It wasn’t an easy road to victory for the Israeli realtor, as he had to beat the likes of Moorman and Vojtech Ruzicka along the way, before overcoming a final table which included Jonathan Little. "I had a feeling from the first day... I had a picture of me taking the bracelet, but I didn't believe in myself. I don't know why; I'm not such a good player, that I can tell you. After I won the second day, I knew it, that's it," Final table payouts: Ben Maya - $257,764 Thomas Boivin - $159,273 Tim West - $115,297 Phachara Wongwichit - $84,453 Alex Rocha - $62,602 Steve Foutty - $46,969 Joe Cook - $35,673 Paul Michaelis - $27,431 Jonathan Little - $21,360 Matas Dilpsas - $16,844 Matthew Schreiber claims first bracelet in $3K HORSE [caption width="640"] Matthew Schreiber beat Phillip Hui heads-up to win his first career WSOP bracelet. (WSOP photo)[/caption] Another first-time bracelet winner was crowned on Saturday. Matthew Schreiber took down the final table of Event #44, the $3,000 HORSE in just three hours of play. "I have been playing a lot of mixed cash games," said Schreiber. "But in this particular event, I'm very inexperienced in Stud and very inexperienced in hi-lo. So, it's coming as a shock to me as well.” For his victory, the former collegiate golf player won $256,226. He came into the final table as chip leader, and despite a rocky road managed to get to the finish line in first. "This is the pinnacle for any poker player," he said about his bracelet win. "I made some deep runs and could never really finish the job, but I felt really good about this one at the end.” Final table payouts: Matthew Schreiber - $256,226 Phil Hui - $158,361 David Steicke - $107,458 Tom Koral - $74,382 Ryan Himes - $52,542 Hanks Honig - $37,892 Ryan Hughes - $27,910 Brendan Taylor - $21,007 Valentin Vornicu - $16,165 Barry Greenstein headlines $1,500 PLO final 21 On Day 1 of Event #46: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, 830 players sat down to give it a shot. By the start of Day 2, there were just 151 remaining. And now, going into Sunday’s Day 3, they’re down to 21. Millard Hale leads the bunch, but it’s three-time bracelet winner Barry Greenstein who a lot of eyes will be on. He sits fifth in chips, while nearing the bottom of the pack is two-time bracelet winner Barny Boatman. They’ll all return today to play for the $223,339 first-place prize. Top 10 chip counts: Millard Hale - 640,000 Kevin Saul - 613,000 Miguel Use - 598,000 John O’Shea - 459,000 Barry Greenstein - 359,000 Fernando Macia - 335,000 Samuel Lee - 313,000 Robert Price - 289,000 Christopher O’Rourke - 279,000 Andrew Watson - 277,000 Monster Stack and $10K Seven-Card Stud kick off There was a huge turn-out for Day 1A of the $1,500 Monster Stack yesterday, with 2,676 hopefuls taking their seats. After play was over, 768 remained. Allan Rabinovich bagged the chip lead, with Loni Harwood, T.J. Cloutier, Jonathan Duhamel, Paul Volpe, and Ari Engel all making it through. The day wasn’t so good for the likes of Jessica Dawley, Eddy Sabat, Matt Salsberg, Joe Cada, JC Tran, Mike Sowers, Marsha Wolak, Annette Obrestad, Jamie Kerstetter, and Mohsin Charania, who all busted. However, they can have another shot at Sunday’s Day 1B if they like. Meanwhile, the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship (Event #48) also got going yesterday with 125 runners.

  2. Just days after winning the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK £25,000 Super High Roller for £450,000, Steve 'MrTimCaum' O'Dwyer won first place in the series’ £10,000 High Roller. In this one, O'Dwyer bested a field of 105 entries and took home a first-place payday of £314,000. The combined haul from the two events saw O’Dwyer win £764,000. Final Table Payouts 1. Steve 'MrTimCaum' O'Dwyer - £314,000 2. Gianluca Speranza - £193,000 3. Preben Stokkan - £129,000 4. Dominik Nitsche - £95,000 5. Michael Zhang - £75,000 6. Chris Brammer - £60,000 7. Joao Vieira - £45,000 8. Anthony Elliott - £35,000 9. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez - £27,500 The three-day partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK High Roller began Friday and entering Sunday’s final day of action, 13 remained with O’Dwyer atop them all. Anton Wigg was the first player to bust on the final day, falling in 13th placard putting the tournament on the money bubble. Shortly thereafter, Mustapha Kanit was eliminated at the hands of Dominik Nitsche to send the remaining 11 players into the money. Juan Pardo Dominguez busted first in the money in 11th place, then Adrian Mateos went out 10th. The final nine then joined to one table before Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez, the players O'Dwyer defeated in heads-up play in the £25,000 Super High Roller, busted in ninth. Anthony Elliott went out to Nitsche in eighth place, Joao Vieira and Chris Brammer busted to Michael Zhang in seventh and sixth places, respectively, and then Zhang went out in fifth. On Zhang's bust, he ran the [poker card="As"][poker card="Js"] into the pocket kings of O'Dwyer and couldn't pull out the win. O'Dwyer kept his foot on the gas in four-handed play before he knocked out Nitshce in fourth. This time it was pocket aces doing the trick for O’Dwyer, as he sent Nitshce packing with the [poker card="As"][poker card="2d"]. In the clash that saw third-place finisher Preben Stokkan hit the rail, O'Dwyer held another big hand -- the [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Kh"]. He was up against Stokkan's [poker card="Js"][poker card="Jc"] but turned a king to score the elimination. That left O'Dwyer and Speranza to battle for the £314,000 top prize and the title. Both had already locked up £193,000 in prize money, and O’Dwyer took the lead into the final duel with 69.575 million in chips to Speranza's 35.45 million. O'Dwyer chipped away early and had Speranza on the ropes with less than 10 big blinds. Eventually, O'Dwyer moved all in and Speranza felt he had no choice but to take a stand. Speranza didn’t have much with the [poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"], but things only looked grimmer when O'Dwyer tabled pocket aces once again. Speranza flopped a pair of threes, but it wasn’t enough as the board ran out [poker card="5s"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="8c"][poker card="Qs"]. The victory was another impressive score for O'Dwyer in 2018, who now has more than $4.5 million in live tournament earnings won on the year. The result was also his ninth six-figure live score of the year. As if his 2018 live tournament results aren’t enough jaw-dropping figures for your next great bar debate, O'Dwyer recently won his first PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title for $227,101 and took down Event #123 Super High Roller Championship Event: $25,500 No Limit Hold’em in the partypoker POWERFEST series for $896,610.
