  1. After a stunning final table performance, Dan Cates won the $50,000 Poker Players Championship to get his name on the Chip Reese Trophy. Elsewhere, Josh Arieh won his fourth bracelet and Georgios Sotiropoulos took his third on Day 37 of the 2021 World Series as Day 1b of the World Series of Poker Main Event also took place on a day of drama. Dan Cates Wins First-Ever Bracelet in $50K Poker Players Championship It was a packed day of action in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, as Dan Cates rose through the ranks to win his first-ever WSOP bracelet for over $954,000. As ridiculous as it sounds, the money will hardly matter to one of the most unique poker players the game has ever produced. The first player to bust the final table in fifth place was Chris Brewer, who went in No-Limit Hold’em when he called all-in with [poker card="7s"][poker card="7c"] on a flop of [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="5h"]. Brewer had currently established that the aggressor in the hand, Ryan Leng, hadn’t hit the flop, but Leng’s [poker card="Js"][poker card="Jc"] were good enough to eliminate Brewer for $211,235 after a turn of [poker card="2c"] and the [poker card="6d"] river. An extended period of play saw no-one bust for hours, overnight chip leader Eli Elezra was gone. Elezra lost a Razz pot to Paul Volpe to cash for $286,983, some way short of the top prize he was favorite to win a few hours earlier. Three-handed play lasted some time before Dan Cates offered to buy everyone on the rail some drinks to get more support to push him over the line. No, really... everyone. https://twitter.com/junglemandan/status/1456799668390662149 Spurred on, Cates then took out Paul Volpe in third place for $404,243 as Volpe lost in Limit Hold’em with [poker card="Kd"][poker card="2s"] of Cates winning against Volpe’s [poker card="Ks"][poker card="6h"] on a board of [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="7s"] when all the money went in on the flop. Heads-up play began with Cates in complete control, holding 16 million chips to Leng’s 2.9 million. After early pressure from Leng, however, he chipped up and got a full double when top pair was good enough to take a vital Limit Hold’em pot as Leng vaulted to 9 million chips, almost drawing level. https://twitter.com/junglemandan/status/1456954623122567168?s=20 That quickly went in the other direction, however, as Cates grew his lead and sealed the deal in a round of Limit Hold’em as his [poker card="Qc"][poker card="3d"] won after being all-in behind on the flop of [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Jh"][poker card="Th"] against Leng’s [poker card="Td"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="Qh"] turn put Cates into the lead and Jungleman was swinging from the vines when the [poker card="3s"] gave him the title, $954,020 top prize and first-ever bracelet, with Leng’s runner-up result (his second of the series in addition to winning a bracelet) worth $589,628. "I said I was gonna win, so I won. But it was pretty important because now I have more money to help the world and to continue a career outside of poker," Cates said after his victory. https://twitter.com/junglemandan/status/1456955161566273544?s=20 WSOP 2021 Event #60 $50,000 Poker Players Championship Final Table Results: Dan Cates - $954,020 Ryan Leng - $589,628 Paul Volpe - $404,243 Eli Elezra - $286,983 Chris Brewer - $211,235 Arieh Captures Fourth Bracelet, Second in a Fortnight To say that Josh Arieh has enjoyed a purple patch at the felt is a little like saying the Rio is slightly cold. The popular professional won his third WSOP bracelet just two weeks ago, but after a stirring run to the line Event #66, Arieh captured his fourth-lifetime WSOP bracelet and second this Series to vault up the Player of the Year leaderboard and further strengthen his incredible 2021 and general poker legacy. The professional, who has played the game for quarter of a century, took down a dramatic final table as he ruled the PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for a massive score of $484,791. The final table saw players such as British mixed game specialist Adam Owen and Jeff Gross bust before the final four, with Dan Colpoys’ elimination followed by the end of Russian player Anatolii Zyrin’s chances. With overnight leader Danny Chang to conquer heads-up, Arieh controlled the short but exciting battle as he put an almost 3:1 chips lead to perfect use. While Chang cashed for $299,627, it was Arieh who sealed yet more memories in a 2021 World Series of Poker fast becoming known for his deep runs in some of the toughest events on the poker calendar. Did someone say WSOP Player of the Year? The race for the ‘flag’ everyone wants to see hanging in the WSOP venue is up for grabs now. https://twitter.com/RemkoRinkema/status/1456880193335746564 WSOP 2021 Event #66 $10,000 PLO8 Championship Final Table Results: Josh Arieh - $484,791 Danny Chang - $299,627 Anatolii Zyrin - $207,369 Dan Colpoys - $146,817 Jeff Gross - $106,391 Adam Owen - $78,955 Aaron Kupin - $60,040 Matt Woodward - $46,813 [caption id="attachment_637053" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] Josh Arieh won his fourth WSOP bracelet on a huge day at the felt on Day 37 of the 2011 WSOP[/caption] Sotiropoulos Seals Third Bracelet Win Georgios Sotiropoulos won the Mini Main Event after outlasting his final four opponents and putting another dominant chip lead to great use to win his third WSOP bracelet. Sotiropoulos closed it out in style, winning heads-up against Japanese player Wataru Miyashita, who grabbed the $267,328 runner-up prize after running over the final table and eliminated the other three players in his bid to stop the Greek star. That didn’t happen, however, as Sotiropoulos - who started heads-up level with Miyashita - remerged as the dominant force and closed it out to win his third bracelet across a stellar poker career and the top prize of $432,575. WSOP 2021 Event #65 $1,000 Mini Main Event Final Table Results: Georgios Sotiropoulos - $432,575 Wataru Miyashita - $267,328 Jordan Meltzer - $202,695 James Patterson - $154,720 James Rubinski - $118,898 Matthew Jewett - $91,991 David Tuthill - $71,661 James Morgan - $56,208 Erkut Yilmaz - $44,394 On Day 1b of the WSOP Main Event, 845 players took to the felt in pursuit of the biggest prize in poker. With just 611 players surviving, Steve Foutty bagged up the biggest stack of the day with 287,000 chips, followed in the counts by Matthew Traylor (279,500) and Maxime Canevet (277,000). Other big names to make it included Ronnie Bardah (139,600), Stephen Chidwick (124,900), four-time bracelet winner Kevin Gerhart (112,400) and Mike Matusow (56,500), while others such as WSOP Main Event back-to-back 1987 and 1988 winner Johnny Chan, John Racener, Brian Rast, Nick Schulman and Shaun Deeb all fell on the first day.

  2. A dramatic day at the felt saw Kevin Gerhart claim his fourth WSOP bracelet with his second of this World Series in Event #62, the $1,500-entry Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better. Elsewhere, the Poker Players Championship reached its final five players as Eli Elezra grabbed the chip lead heading into the final day and there were bracelet wins for both Eelis Parssinen and Cole Ferraro. Kevin Gerhart Wins Second Bracelet of the Series It was all about Kevin Gerhart in Event #62 as the popular young pro won his second bracelet of the 2021 WSOP and the fourth of his career. Heading into the final table, the chips were remarkably even, with Gerhart marginally ahead of both Matthew Kaplan and Sterling Lopez at the top of the eight-man leaderboard. The first player to bust at the official final table was Dylan Wilkerson as Kaplan, who led the field coming into the final day, vaulted back into the lead when his full house sent Wilkerson out for $18,278 in eighth place. It took no time at all for the next player to leave the action, as Michael Trivett was shot down by Gerhart almost immediately for a score of $23,891 in seventh place. That hand gave Gerhart the lead back and he further strengthened his advantage of the rest of the field when he eliminated Roman Hrabec in sixth place for $31,733 when Gerhart won his second bust-out pot in a row with two-pair. At that stage, Gerhart’s closest rival was hard to pick, with each of the other four men each sitting on roughly 60% of Gerhart’s stack, but Dustin Dirksen stepped forward as the likeliest heads-up opponent after busting Alexandr Orlov in fourth for $42,823. Orlov’s exit was enough to propel Dirksen off the bottom of the counts, but he had slipped slightly by the time he risked it all to double through Gerhart. Once Dicksen doubled, the pressure ramped up on the other remaining players, and Lopez busted in fourth place for $58,695 as a result. Lopez was followed from the felt by Kaplan, as both of Gerhart’s earlier rivals moved to the rail, Kaplan cashing for $81,696. Gerhart took on Dicksen and had a strong lead going into the heads-up battle, with 12.1 million chips playing Dicksen’s 6 million. Although Dicksen took the lead after some early pots, Gerhart grabbed a marginal advantage back by the time the final hand happened and virtually all of the chips were in the middle of the table. Gerhart’s pair of kings was good enough against Dicksen’s jacks, which saw Gerhart’s rail celebrated a fourth WSOP bracelet title, the luckless Dicksen was commiserated in second by the runner-up prize of $115,440. Gerhart had prevented him winning a first-ever bracelet with the hand and took the top prize of $186,789 in the process. WSOP 2021 Event #62 $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Final Table Results: Kevin Gerhart - $186,789 Dustin Dirksen - $115,440 Matthew Kaplan - $81,696 Sterling Lopez - $58,695 Alexandr Orlov - $42,823 Roman Hrabec - $31,733 Michael Trivett - $23,891 Dylan Wilkerson - $18,278 Elezra Takes The Lead In $50K PPC After an entertaining day where 10 players dropped to five, Eli Elezra finished the action top of the leaderboard with one day to go in the Poker Players Championship. The $50,000-entry event, which will conclude on Friday, November 5th after a day’s break, began the day with ten top players, all of whom had made it into the money. Mike Wattel was the first player to be busted, exiting proceedings in 10th place for a min-cash worth $82,623 when he lost out to Paul Volpe and it wasn’t long before Daniel Negreanu busted too, leaving in ninth place for $91,595. ‘Kid Poker’ lost with pocket aces again after doing so on a dramatic Day 3, this time being shot down by Ryan Leng’s set of jacks. With eight players left, Nick Schulman, who earlier in the day had spoken out against a perceived slowroll from Negreanu, who later tweeted about how he was happy the hand played out as it did. https://twitter.com/RealKidPoker/status/1456021223859650562 Schulman’s exit for $106,120 in eighth took place against Chris Brewer, who seemed to grow in power throughout the day, while Matt Glantz, who busted in seventh for $128,256, may have gone out in a split pot by Leng and Elezra, but he was trolled by Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates on his way from the event. https://twitter.com/junglemandan/status/1456034289796141064 That left just one man to leave the party and miss out on the final five. Unfortunately for him and his many fans and investors, that was Josh Arieh, who left in sixth place another great score of $161,422 when his pocket queens in PLO were toppled by Elezra’s two-pair tens and sixes on the turn. With five men remaining, here are the payouts for the players who made it all the way to Day 4 of one of the most difficult tournaments this year’s WSOP will host. WSOP 2021 Event #60 $50,000 Poker Players Championship Results: 6th - Josh Arieh - $161,422 7th - Matt Glantz - $128,256 8th - Nick Schulman - $106,120 9th - Daniel Negreanu - $91,595 10th - Mike Wattel - $82,623 Of the five remaining players, it is Elezra who has the chip lead going into Friday’s showdown for the gold. With a massive 10 WSOP bracelets already won by the five players who will compete to get their name on the Chip Reese Trophy, Elezra’s four is one ahead of Volpe and Leng, each of whom has three to their name. Neither Cates nor Brewer have won WSOP gold so far in their careers but now sit just four opponents away from doing so. WSOP 2021 Event #60 $50,000 Poker Players Championship Final Table Chipcounts: Eli Elezra - 4,620,000 Paul Volpe - 4,360,000 Chris Brewer - 4,325,000 Daniel Cates - 3,875,000 Ryan Leng - 1,625,000 Ferraro Digs Deep To Win Deepstack Championship In Event #61, Cole Ferraro completed a massive comeback win to claim his first WSOP title and the top prize of over a quarter of a million dollars. Eclipsing the others at a dramatic final table, Ferraro’s victory came after the 22-year-old finished second in an event earlier this series. Heading into the final table, Ferraro had a slight chip lead, but that was overtaken by Richard Dixon very quickly as he took out Ronald Slucker in ninth for $25,359. Slucker shoved on a flop of [poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4h"] with [poker card="5s"][poker card="5c"] for a flopped middle set. Dixon made the call with his overpair [poker card="7s"][poker card="7h"], but that improved to a straight on 5th street as the [poker card="As"] turn was followed by a [poker card="8d"] on the river. There was a period of no eliminations, but as the blinds rose, that was followed by a number of quick bust-outs. Rubin Chappell left in eighth place for $32,169 when his pocket eights were topped by Bart Lybaert’s pocket queens, before Xiangdong Huang busted in seventh for $41,108 when his [poker card="Ah"][poker card="8s"] couldn’t win a flip against Dixon’s [poker card="6h"][poker card="6d"]. With six players remaining, Edgardo Rosario busted for $52,914 when he got unlucky post-flop having had the better of it before the community cards fell. Rosario’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Qc"] was well ahead of Dixon’s [poker card="Ad"][poker card="6d"] but the board of [poker card="7c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2c"][poker card="4d"][poker card="6s"] managed to offer Rosario a flush draw from the flop yet instead give Dixon trips on the river. It wasn’t long, however, before Dixon himself was on the rail, busting in fifth place for $68,604. All-in with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qh"] on a queen-high flop Ferraro had found [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Kc"] and held through turn and river to win with a set of kings and sneak up on Sami Rustom, who had taken the chip lead. Out in fourth for $89,587 was Bart Lybaert, the Belgian player heading home after he thought he was bluff-catching with third pair on a king-high board but saw Ferraro turn over aces in the hole to go into three-handed play with a strong lead. Play was soon heads-up, as Sean Dunleavy was done and left in third place for $117,822. Dunleavy shoved on the river of a hand against Rustom with a set of jacks, but his opponent had rivered a runner-runner flush to take the lead right back. With Rustom holding 70 million chips to Ferraro’s 47 million, it took a comeback win for the bracelet. Ferraro won a handful of important hands where he had to make tough calls before the final hand saw him taking a lead into the action at the crucial moment. Rustom shoved with [poker card="4h"][poker card="4s"], and after a long time taking consideration of all factors, Ferarro called with [poker card="Td"][poker card="Tc"]. After the board played out [poker card="9s"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2s"][poker card="5c"][poker card="Th"], Ferraro had the win and a history-making first-ever bracelet, with the 22-year-old the youngest player to enjoy a first and second so far in the 2021 World Series of Poker. While Rustom won $156,056 for finishing as runner-up, Ferraro’s top prize of $252,491will see him in huge profit for the series and playing the Main Event later in the week. On this form, who would want to face him across the felt? WSOP 2021 Event #61 $600 Deepstack Championship Final Table Results: Cole Ferraro - $252,491 Sami Rustom - $156,056 Sean Dunleavy - $117,822 Bart Lybaert - $89,587 Richard Dixon - $68,604 Edgardo Rosario - $52,914 Xiangdong Huang - $41,108 Ruben Chappell - $32,169 Ronald Slucker - $25,359 Eelis Parssinen Wins First WSOP Bracelet Event #64 saw Finnish online crusher Eelis Parssinen claim a first-ever WSOP bracelet victory as he took the top prize at a final table including players such as Niklas Astedt and Joni Jouhkimainen. With just eight players making the final table, it wasn’t long before the first player busted, with a fast structure to the $5,000-entry event throughout. Parssinen got off to the best possible start when he made quads in a PLO pot to double through Jouhkimainen and move up the ranks, and instead of the Finn floundering, he would continue to rise up the leaderboard during the remainder of the final day. Vikranth Anga was the first player to leave the final table as he lost out with ace-king to Jouhkimainen’s pocket kings when all the chips went into the middle pre-flop. Anga’s exit was worth $53,824 and he was soon joined on the rail by Swedish online sensation Niklas Astedt in seventh place for $70,367 when his [poker card="Qs"][poker card="5s"] couldn’t catch Noah Bronstein’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="6h"], a board of [poker card="As"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2d"][poker card="9d"][poker card="7h"] sending Astedt home. After Kyle Arora went out in sixth for $93,425, Jouhkimainen busted in fifth for $125,940. The Finn called off his stack from the big blind with [poker card="9d"][poker card="7s"] only for Ezra Abu Gazal’s [poker card="As"][poker card="Qs"] to eliminate his micro stack. Soon, only three remained after the overnight chip leader, David Prociak, busted for $172,332. Gazal would bust in No Limit Hold’em, when his [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Tc"] lost to Parssinen’s [poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] on a nine-high board, with the American earning $239,231 for the run to the podium places. That gave Parssinen 20.6 million chips, almost three times as many as Bronstein who had 8.4 million. Heads-up was a short affair as the Finn wrapped up victory with a flopped set of sixes good enough for Parssinen to claim gold and the top prize of $545,616, while Bronstein cashed for $337,216 as runner-up. WSOP 2021 Event #64 $5,000 NLHE/PLO Mix Final Table Results: Eelis Parssinen - $545,616 Noah Bronstein - $337,216 Ezra Abu Gazal - $239,321 David Prociak - $172,332 Joni Jouhkimainen - $125,940 Kyle Arora - $93,425 Niklas Astedt - $70,367 Vikranth Anga - $53,824 In Event #63, the $500-entry Salute to Warriors, just nine players remain from 169 combatants on the penultimate day of the event. Bradley Rogoff leads the final table with 8,800,000 chips, a fair distance ahead of Eric Zhang with 7,175,000. Elsewhere at the final table, there were stacks in bags for Chris Corbo (4,475,000) and Chulhan Choi (3,900,000) among others, but some weren’t so fortunate as to make the final day, with stars of the game such as Taylor Pollard, Lisa Roberts and Chris Bibb all going close to the final day but eventually missing out. WSOP 2021 Event #63 $500 Salute to Warriors Final Table Chipcounts: Bradley Rogoff - 8,800,000 Eric Zhang - 7,175,000 Guy Hadas - 5,500,000 Christopher Corbo - 4,475,000 Mitch Garshofsky - 4,475,000 Chulhan Choi - 3,900,000 Hlib Kovtunov - 3,475,000 Anthony Mccurdy - 3,350,000 Marty Zabib - 2,700,000 The kick-off of Event #65, the Mini Main Event, is something thousands of players were looking forward to, as evidenced by the 3,821 players who played the freezeout tournament that apes the structure and style of the WSOP Main Event, which kicks off on Thursday. After starting at 11am, the tournament enjoyed a busy opening day, with players such as the Player of the Year favorite Shaun Deeb busting out before the day was through. Others such as WSOP world champion Joe McKeehen went the same way, but some survived, with Thomas Boyden the pick of the 282 who made the cut. Others to feature in the top ten included Farid Jattin (2,240,000) and two-time WSOP winner Georgios Sotiropoulos (2,135,000), while the highest other former WSOP bracelet winner in the counts was Ismael Bojang (1,850,000).

Brian Hastings (447,000) leads the field, but he is in illustrious company in a top 10 that includes Chip Jett (308,500), Nick Schulman (295,000), GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos (282,500) and two-time 2021 WSOP winner Ari Engel, the Canadian sitting on 224,000 chips.

  3. The latest day of poker action has concluded at the home of the World Series of Poker, the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. With two more bracelets won, there was also a pivotal day at the felt in the prestigious Poker Players Championship as Ryan Leng ended the third day on top of the leaderboard. Leng Leads from Arieh and Cates as 10 Remain in PPC Bracelet Hunt The third day of action in the $50,000-entry Poker Players Championship saw the remaining 35 players play down to just 10 who will return tomorrow to battle for the WSOP bracelet they all want to win and $954,020 up top. Leader of the pack with one day to close it out is Ryan Leng, who totalled 4.5 million chips by the close of play, but Leng will not have it easy with some of the best players in the world hot on his heels. Josh Arieh is closing to taking the lead from Leng, with both men having won gold already this Autumn at the Rio. Arieh has over 3 million chips, and both he and Daniel ‘Jungleman’ Cates (2.3 million) will harbor hopes of overtaking Leng before they reach the line. Elsewhere, a rollercoaster day for Daniel Negreanu ended with ‘Kid Poker’ surviving a brutal bad beat with Chris Brewer’s pocket eights getting there against the Canadian’s pocket aces when all the chips were in the middle pre-flop. Negreanu got through the money bubble and eventually ran his stack up to 700,000 by close of play. Others could not make it, and all of Adam Friedman, Alex Livingston, and Chris Vitch busted outside the money despite starting the day in the top 20% of the field. Others found the same fate, with Anthony Zinno, the current WSOP Player of the Year, busted before the money too, but some superstars of the game survived to fight another day. Eli Elezra (1,880,000) continued his great form this series, while Nick Schulman (1,280,000) and Day 2 chip leader Paul Volpe (900,000) will have designs on one of the most coveted bracelets of them all, and of course, getting their name on the Chip Reese Trophy. WSOP 2021 Event #60 $50,000 Poker Players Championship Final 10 Chipcounts: Ryan Leng - 4,500,000 Josh Arieh - 3,025,000 Dan Cates - 2,310,000 Chris Brewer - 2,025,000 Eli Elezra - 1,880,000 Matt Glantz - 1,575,000 Nick Schulman - 1,280,000 Paul Volpe - 900,000 Daniel Negreanu - 780,000 Mike Wattel - 670,000 Jean-Luc Adam Wins Super Seniors For First Bracelet The $1,000-entry Super Seniors event reached a conclusion with Frenchman Jean-Luc Adam earning his first-ever WSOP bracelet and the top prize of $255,623. With nine making the final table, Adam led from the start of that finale as overnight leader David Slaughter bust in 10th place for $18,837. Out in ninth place, just a few minutes after the final table began, was Gary Pagel, who earned $23,762 when his shove with [poker card="4s"][poker card="4h"] ran into Eugene Solomon’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"]. An ace on the flop doomed Pagel and he was followed from the room just a few minutes later by Reginald Powell. Powell cashed for $30,269 when his [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Kc"] couldn’t come back against Alex Katsman’s [poker card="Js"][poker card="Jc"], as the board gave the latter a flush on [poker card="As"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="5s"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="Qc"]. Girish Apte departed in seventh place for $38,932 when his [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jc"] ran into Bill Stabler’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Kh"], with a queen-high board no help at all. Not long afterwards, Joseph Richards joined him, as his [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] couldn’t get anywhere against the eventual winner Adam, whose [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Qh"] held to send Richards home with $50,559. Katsman went in fifth for $66,284 after his pocket eights couldn’t hold against Solomon’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"], a flush on the river condemning Katsman to the exit door. He only lasted a couple of hands less than Bill Stabler, who won $87,722 when his shove with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="3c"] ran into Adam’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="7h"] and lost to a flush on the turn. Three-handed, Scott Sukstorf was short and his laddering ended when his shove when short with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="8s"] ran into Adam’s [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Kh"]. A nine-high board sent Sukstorf home and gave Adam the lead into heads-up, with the Frenchman having 24 million to S0lomon’s 13 million. It was soon all over, Solomon moving all-in on a board showing [poker card="Jh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="4s"] with [poker card="Th"][poker card="9h"] and Adam calling with [poker card="Js"][poker card="7h"]. Solomon’s bluff still had a chance to catch an eight for a straight, but the [poker card="Ac"] river gave his opponent the well-earned title of WSOP champion.

With Sai Ruston (7,150,000) and Marc Rangel (6,800,000) in closest pursuit, the total field of 3,916 entrants is now down to just 40 payers, with only Barry Shulman (2,425,000) and Mark Seif (950,000) having won WSOP gold before. Players to bust on the day included Brandon Sheils, Philippe Souki, Philip Tom, and Kenny Hsiung, as well as Brett Apter and Day 1 chip leader Robert Hankins.

Day 1 ended with Japanese player Tsugunari Toma sitting on one of the biggest leads anyone has built during this World Series of Poker. Toma, however, crashed and burned as Kaplan went in the opposite direction, barely lasting half the day as others such as Kevin Gerhart (2.9 million) and Dustin Dirksen (2.4 million) both thrived. Others to make the top 10 chip counts included Sterling Lopez (1,350,000) and Michael Trivett (730,000), with Gerhart the only remaining bracelet winner of the 13 players who are left, with British player Richie Allen still hanging onto a chance of debut gold with 515,000 chips at the next big blind of 50,000. WSOP 2021 Event #62 $1,500 PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better Top 10 Chipcounts: Matthew Kaplan - 3,145,000 Kevin Gerhart - 2,900,000 Dustin Dirksen - 2,400,000 Roman Hrabec - 1,800,000 Sterling Lopez - 1,350,000 Dylan Wilkerson - 1,240,000 Tamon Nakamura - 1,145,000 Alexandr Orlov - 1,015,000 Bryant Bustamante - 805,000 Michael Trivett - 730,000 Players Turn Out For Salute To Warriors The opening day of the $500-entry Salute to Warriors event saw a great turnout, with 1,738 entrants reduced to just 169 players by the end of Day 1. Chip leader when the day closed was Andrew Moon, who was the only player to bag over a million chips with 1,274,000. He was followed in the chip counts by Taylor Pollard (866,000) and John Song (711,000), who along with Nicholas Verderamo (653,000), were the only three who amounted over half the impressive Moon’s dominant stack. With $40 from each player’s entry going towards the United Services Organization, a huge prize pool of $712,580 and a top prize of $102,465 means that plenty of money was raised for a great cause with big-name players such as Shuan Deeb donating along the way, although unfortunately for Deeb fans, the WSOP Player of the Year chaser didn’t make the Day 2 chip counts.

With NLHE and PLO on the menu, other big names to bag top 10 chipcounts included Tommy Le (1,050,000), Uri Reichenstein (1,010,000) and Shar Levi (945,000), with players like Jason Somerville (690,000), Stefan Schillhabel (445,000) and Dan Smith (310,000) all still in with a chance of glory.

  4. After taking the final two events of the 2021 Poker Masters to claim the Purple Jacket, Michael Addamo followed that performance up by besting the 21-entry Super High Roller Bowl VI for a resume-topping cash of $3,402,000. After three days of high-stakes tournament action in the PokerGO Studio, Addamo was, once again, the last player standing. “It’s been an incredible week,” Addamo said after the win. “I’ve been running very fortunate in a lot of spots…it’s unreal to be honest.” After Bill Klein and Michael Addamo clashed at the end of Day 2, Klein hit the rail setting the stage for the final five players to return to crown the champion. Addamo held a commanding chip lead with Justin Bonomo also sitting on a healthy stack, while Alex Foxen, Chris Brewer, and Sean Winter were searching for ways to climb up over the million chip mark. Foxen, who ended Day 1 with the chip lead, was the first to hit the rail. After an hour of play, Foxen’s stack had dwindled down to roughly eight big blinds. With the blinds at 15,000/25,000 (25,000 bb ante) the action folded to Foxen in the small blind with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="5c"]. After taking a few moments he moved all in only to be snap-called by Bonomo in the big blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="th"]. The flop came [poker card="jh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="3h"] keeping Foxen’s ace-high in the lead. That quickly changed with the [poker card="td"] hit the turn, giving Bonomo a pair and leaving Foxen looking for an ace on the river. Instead, it was the [poker card="qh"] on the river, bringing in a straight for Bonomo and sending Foxen out in fifth place, leaving the final four to battle on the stone bubble. After the elimination of Foxen, Bonomo and Addamo had plenty of separation from Brewer and Winter, both of the short stacks sitting on roughly 20 big blinds. Another hour passed and Brewer’s stack fell to roughly 10 big blinds and he was looking for a spot to double. The blinds climbed up to 15,000/30,000 and Bonomo applied pressure from the button with his [poker card="th"][poker card="4h"], raising enough to force Winter or Brewer all-in should they call. Winter let go of the small blind, but Brewer looked down at [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] and instantly called. Brewer stood and leaned over the table as the flop came out [poker card="qd"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5h"] giving Brewer top pair but bringing in a flush draw and backdoor straight outs for Bonomo. Brewer looked pained as a smile appeared on Bonomo’s face and the [poker card="js"] appeared on the turn. Brewer just needed to fade a heart, but the [poker card="kh"] hit the river, bursting the million-dollar bubble and sending Brewer out in fourth place. After the bubble burst, Winter picked up some chips and climbed to just under 30 big blinds. During the same level, Addamo put in a raise on the button to 65,000 with his [poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"] and after Bonomo let go of the small blind, Winter picked up the [poker card="th"][poker card="td"] and moved all-in. Addamo made the quick call and Winter was at risk. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="5s"] flop kept Winter in the lead but brought Addamo some additional gutshot and backdoor flush outs. The [poker card="ts"] on the turn send Addamo into the lead with a straight, but Winter improved to a set but needed to pair the board to stay alive. The river was the [poker card="7c"] and Winter congratulated Bonomo and Addamo saying ‘good game, good luck guys” as he made his exit in third place for $1,008,000. After a quick break, Addamo and Bonomo returned to play down heads-up with Addamo holding a 35 big blind chip lead. Over the course of roughly an hour, Bonomo’s chip stack fluctuated up and down but he was never able to wrestle the chip lead away from Addamo. With the blinds still at 15,000/30,000, Bonomo, with 2.4 million in his stack, opened the button to 80,000 and Addamo made the call with the [poker card="7d"][poker card="2d"]. The [poker card="4d"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2h"] flop brought Addamo a flush draw and bottom pair, which he checked over to Bonomo who checked back. The turn was the [poker card="qd"], bringing Addamo the flush while giving Bonomo top pair. Addamo overbet the pot for 250,000 and Bonomo opted for a call. The [poker card="tc"] completed the board and Bonomo improved to a second-best two pair. Addamo went for it all - moving all-in. Bonomo took his time, used nearly all his time banks while glaring at Addamo. In the end, Bonomo sat up and said “I call” and it was all over. Bonomo and Addamo shook hands as Bonomo falls just one spot short of a fourth SHRB title, settling for second place and his $1,890,000 payday. Addamo completed the hat trick, winning the final two events of the 2021 Poker Masters and his first Super High Roller Bowl championship for a career-high score of $3,402,000.
  5. The stakes have been raised in the 2021 Poker Masters as Chris Brewer took down Event #8 ($25,000 NLHE) on Wednesday for a career-high tournament cash of $427,500. The $10Ks on the schedule are in the rearview mirror and the super high rollers have made their way to the PokerGO studio in Las Vegas. In fact, Event #8 saw a total of 57 entries which created an impressive prize pool of $1.425 million. For Brewer, an emerging face on the high-stakes scene, he relied on both his experience and a little bit of luck to take down first of the $25Ks. “I won a lot of all-ins which was super helpful,” Brewer said after his win. “I’m pumped to win.” It looked like it could be a quick final table after the early exit of table short stack John Riordan. On the very first hand, with the blinds at 20,000/40,000 (40,000 bb ante), Darren Elias was looking to apply some pressure on the short stack as he moved all-in with the [poker card="qs"][poker card="4s"]. Riordan, the lone blind, picked up [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"] and went with it, sticking his eight big blind stack in the middle. The flop came [poker card="as"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4c"] giving Elias trips and leaving Riordan looking for runner-runner help to survive. The [poker card="8c"] opened the door for a possible flush for Riordan, but he missed when the river came the [poker card="td"]. Riordan’s fifth-place finish was good for $114,000 and it marked his fourth cash in the first eight events. Brock Wilson had also been on a Poker Masters heater, sitting at his third final table of the series and capturing a win in Event #4 for $189,800. For the better part of an hour, Wilson had been nursing the short stack and when the blind climbed to 25,000/50,000 (50,000 ante) he was sitting on just eight big blinds when he moved all-in from the small blind holding [poker card="qd"][poker card="8c"]. Elias was in the big blind, looked down at [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"] and instantly called. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2c"] flop kept Elias’ dominating hand in the lead with top pair. The turn came the [poker card="6d"] and Wilson found himself drawing dead to the [poker card="4s"] river. He added to his Poker Masters resume with his fourth-place finish for $142,500, bringing his 2021 Poker Masters total to $414,300, good enough to assume the top of the leaderboard for the Purple Jacket. Lou Garza, who started the day with the chip lead continued to be the leader when three-handed play started. But as the first break approached, he lost that lead to a surging Elias while Brewer also found himself losing chips. By the end of the third hour, Elias was building a tower of chips as Garza slipped to the bottom of the chip counts. With the blinds at 50,000/100,000 (100,000 bb ante) the two short stacks went to war. Brewer opened from the small blind to 575,000 with his [poker card="8h"][poker card="6h"], forcing Garza to go all-in if he wanted to call. Indeed he did as Garza put his chips in the middle with the [poker card="as"][poker card="4c"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8d"] flop paired up Brewer and left the former chip leader needing help to stick around. The turn was the [poker card="5d"] and the river was not an ace, but the [poker card="3d"], ending Garza’s back-to-back final table run in third place for $199,500. Elias held a healthy 2.5-to-1 chip lead over Brewer when heads-up began. But in a key hand where Elias had [poker card="qc"][poker card="5c"] and Brewer held [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] and the flop came [poker card="th"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2c"], Brewer was able to bring the two stack to even. It was just twenty minutes later that Brewer had flipped the chip counts, holding the 2.5-to-1 chip lead over Elias. The blinds escalated to 50,000/125,000 (125,000 bb ante) and Elias was sitting on just over 10 big blinds when he moved all-in from the button with his [poker card="tc"][poker card="9h"]. With the lead and [poker card="kd"][poker card="9c"], Brewer defended, looking to finish off the four-time WPT champion. The [poker card="js"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"] board never really provided a sweat for the duo as Brewer’s king-high hand was good enough to score the win. Elias collected $285,000 as the runner-up and Brewer booked the win and $427,500 to go with it. Brewer’s third 2021 Poker Masters cash brings his series total to $490,800. 2021 Poker Masters Event #8 Final Table Results Chris Brewer - $427,500 Darren Elias - $285,000 Lou Garza - $199,500 Brock Wilson - $142,500 John Riordan - $114,000
  6. For the second time in three events of the 2021 Poker Masters, the winner was forced to endure an extended, hard-fought heads-up battle before taking down the title. This time it was Adam Hendrix facing off against Matthew Wantman in Event #3 ($10,000 Pot Limit Omaha) and only after 125 hands and nearly 3 hours of heads-up play did Hendrix finally took out his final opponent to lock up the $186,300 first-place prize for his first Poker Masters win. The victory, which Hendrix said was “sort of emotional” was his first in the PokerGO Studio. He came extremely close during the 2021 U.S. Poker Open, holding a massive chip lead against Joey Weissman, however, Weissman mounted an improbable comeback to take the win away from Hendrix. The score pushes the Alaska native over $2 million in career recorded live earnings and currently sits as the second-largest cash of his tournament career. Traditionally, the Poker Master final tables play pretty quickly. However, in Event #3, it took more than two hours for the first of the final six to make their way to the exit. But once players started to fall, they began to fall fast. First up was Chris Brewer. With the blinds at 30,000/60,000 (60,000 ante) Brewer, with seven big blinds total, completed from the small blind to 100,000 with the [poker card="ks"][poker card="jc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="5c"]. In the big blind Hendrix, who had built his stack to second in chips, three-bet to 420,000 holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"][poker card="3s"]. Brewer took some time but eventually moved all-in and Hendrix made the call. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"][poker card="4d"] giving Hendrix top two pair, as well as a flush draw and Brewer, was left looking for help in the form of a straight draw or running card. The turn came the [poker card="5h"], bringing Brewer a little hope. But the river was the [poker card="9c"], ending the six-person stalemate and sending Brewer home in sixth for $41,400. Moments later, with the chip lead, Wantman raised from the button to 130,000 holding the [poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"][poker card="td"][poker card="7h"]. A short-stacked Jake Schindler defended from the big blind with his [poker card="7s"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6c"] flop brought Schindler straight but it also gave Wantman a straight - a higher one. Schindler checked it over to Wantman who put out a tiny bet of 75,000. Schindler then check-raised all-in and Wantman made the quick call. The [poker card="kh"] came off on the turn, leaving Schindler drawing dead to the [poker card="4h"] river. Schindler, who finished fourth in Event #2 for $86,000, wrapped up in fifth place for $55,200. Jake Daniels and Brent Roberts were each sitting on ten big blind when Hendrix, first to act, put in a raise to 150,000 holding [poker card="tc"][poker card="9s"][poker card="9h"][poker card="8h"] and when it folded to Roberts in the big blind, he defended with his [poker card="ac"][poker card="th"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4d"]. The pair took a flop of [poker card="kd"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4s"] and when Roberts checked it over to Hendrix checked it back. The turn came the [poker card="9d"] bringing a set for Hendrix a set of nines and offering Roberts a flush draw and straight draw to go with his bottom pair. Roberts wasted no time and moved all-in for 340,000 and Hendrix put out calling chips. “Damn, that sucks,” Roberts said as the [poker card="6h"] hit the river sending him home in fourth place for $69,000. Three hands later, and with fewer than 10 big blinds left, it was Daniels' turn to get it all in. Hendrix made it 210,000 with his [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8c"] and Daniels, from the big blind, called with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4d"]. The flop came [poker card="9h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3c"] giving Hendrix top pair and Daniels middle pair, wheel draw, and nut flush draw. Daniels snap moved all-in and Hendrix called. Daniels was better than 60% with 19 outs twice. The turn was the [poker card="3s"], leaving Daniels looking for any number of cards in half the deck to survive. However, the river was the [poker card="6h"] missing Daniels and ending his run in third place for $89,700. After the final two players took a quick break, Wantman started heads-up play with a nearly two-to-one chip advantage over Hendrix. The two battled for nearly half an hour while Hendrix chipped away at Wantman’s lead. Eventually, Hendrix wrestled the lead away from Wantman for the first time in the tournament. From that point, a bit of back and forth took place as the heads-up match turned into a grind. After more than two-and-a-half hours of play, with the blinds up to 100,000/200,000 (200,000 bb ante), the final hand took place. With a better than two-to-one chip lead, Hendrix raised the button to 600,000 with his [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2c"] and Wantman defended his big blind holding [poker card="qh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8h"][poker card="5d"]. The flop came out [poker card="9c"][poker card="8c"][poker card="2d"] bringing Hendrix bottom pair and a king-high flush draw while Wantman hit middle pair and a gutshot straight draw. Wantman led out for pot, 1.4 million, and Hendrix raised all-in. Wantman made the call and the turn came the [poker card="3s"], keeping Wantman ahead and giving Hendrix just one more card to hit his 17 outs. The [poker card="ad"] spiked on the river, giving Hendrix the best hand and the Event #3 title. Wantman took home $138,000 as the runner-up and Adam Hendrix picked up $186,300 and his first career Poker Masters event victory. Poker Masters Event #3 Final Table Results Adam Hendrix - $186,300 Matthew Wantman - $138,000 Jake Daniels - $89,700 Brent Roberts - $69,000 Jake Schindler - $55,200 Chris Brewer - $41,400
