  1. [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 gonna degen, so the only solution was to hold a lottery, drawing 35 numbered balls out of a tumbler. Each number corresponded to one of the players who had paid the deposit. You can view the final list of 35 names here and you’ll notice it’s missing some of the bigger names in the game today. In an effort to make make things easier on Aria’s Director of Poker Operations Sean McCormack we’ve compiled a list of ten names - five pros and five recreational players – that should be pat of the field when action kicks off May 28. Daniel Negreanu – Poker’s all-time leading money winner was one of those players who paid their deposit and was ultimately left out of the group of 35. It just makes too much sense to get Negreanu into the event. First off, he’s a PokerCentral ambassador, but beyond that he makes for great TV and success in this event would help him get closer to crossing some of his 2017 goals off of his list. Phil Ivey – The high stakes room at Aria – the host of the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl – is named Ivey’s Room after the ten-time WSOP bracelet winner, an honor bestowed on him when the Aria poker room first opened in 2009. Only problem is Ivey probably couldn’t find it without a map since he apparently hasn't spent a lot of time inside the room. To many poker fans out there, Ivey is still the draw and having him in one of poker’s biggest buy-in events feels like a win for everybody. Jason Koon – Another one of the players who lost out on the lottery, Jason Koon might be one of the hottest high stakes players on the planet right now. Since July 2016 he’s cashed ten times, with four of those being wins, for $4,544,781. In January he won the PokerStars Championship Bahamas Super High Roller for $1,650,300. While other players might not want him there, he's certainly earned the invite with his play. Phil Hellmuth – With four days of live TV coverage expected, it’s hard to imagine that Phil Hellmuth won’t find a way to get in front of the cameras. Sure, he can do the commentary like he does for the WSOP Main Event, but Hellmuth loves getting in with the best in the game and showing he can hang. He’s also a PokerCentral and Aria ambassador so it seems likely he’s getting an invite. Mike McDonald – Sure, he’s taken his talents to Twitch lately and is dedicating some time to his PokerShares.com project, but Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald is still a threat on the high stakes tournament scene and has built himself quite the following over the past few years. Besides, who doesn’t want to tune into CBS Sports' coverage of the Canadian guy just staring at everybody? Kevin Hart – The recent PokerStars Championship Bahamas saw comedian Kevin Hart make his super high roller debut. Hart played the $100,000 SHR event, firing two bullets in the event. He made every table he played at a fun one and could be a star of the live broadcast should he find his way to a feature table. Cary Katz – Locks are for doors and windows, but you can safely bet your net worth on Cary Katz getting one of the 15 reserved seats in the PokerCentral Super High Roller Bowl. Why so sure? Well, he’s the founder of PokerCentral and the Super High Roller Bowl is one of his proudest creations. Bobby Baldwin – Sure, he’s a WSOP Main Event champion but even he’s ready and willing to admit that he’s not a professional anymore. Still, having Bobby Baldwin in the tournament would give it a level of prestige and allow the old guard to be represented by one of the best ever. Dan Shak - Yes, he has a day job that he happens to be extremely successful at, but Dan Shak has also amassed $8.7 million in lifetime earnings at the poker table including a seventh place finish in last year's Super High Roller Bowl. He's a regular in the Aria high roller events and has proven on multiple occasions that he's capable of hanging with the younger pros who regularly populate those events. Bill Perkins – If you look at the group of extremely successful businessmen who have entered the world of high stakes tournament poker, none have had more fun that Bill Perkins – and it’s got nothing to do with winning. The hedge fund manager just loves playing poker and the bright lights of the SHRB would be a great place to showcase that.
  2. The 2016 World Series of Poker could have sold some expensive seats in the Amazon Room as the final table of the $50,000 Poker Players Championship crowned a repeat champ, though not the one many expected. The $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller Day 1 field watching the final table while the rest of the Rio was partying it up in the $1,000 Tag Team event. Brian Rast Wins $50,000 Poker Players Championship for 2nd Time, 3rd Bracelet [caption width="640"] Brian Rast became the second person to win the Chip Reese Trophy twice.[/caption]Brian Rast believed in himself, put his money where his mind was – booking additional action on himself – and entered the final table middle of the pack in chips. Rast got short as Justin Bonomo looked to have all the momentum in the world, played his way back to even and won his second PPC bracelet in a blockbuster hand. Rast pushed his WSOP earnings past $5.5 million at a final table that featured a Mixed Game format. “I ran good but this gives me a little validation,” he said. “I felt a little slighted by some the lines against me and took more action on myself, so it’s nice to get to punish too.” “This says I know how to play Limit and I can play all the games,” he added. “The first (PPC win) was my first major win and the rush that went with that I’ll never top in my poker career.” “There were a lot of crazy ICM situations at the final table,” Rast said. “I was short and had to pick spots and ladder up. I started making a run at three-handed.” The final hand came during a round of No Limit Hold’em and around ten big blinds separated Bonomo and Rast. Bonomo opened, Rast called and the flop came [poker card="as"][poker card="td"][poker card="5c"]. Rast check-called 350,000, the turn came [poker card="ac"] and Rast checked again. Bonomo bet 2,200,000, Rast called after some thought and the river came [poker card="ks"]. Rast checked a third time, Bonomo moved all in and Rast called after re-checking his hole cards. Bonomo turned up [poker card="qc"][poker card="js"] for Broadway but Brian Rast tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"] for the full house. Bonomo threw his hands in the air with a heavy breath and Rast became the second player to win the event twice. Final Table Payouts Brian Rast - $1,296,097 Justin Bonomo - $801,048 Eric Wasserson - $545,772 Michael Mizrachi - $380,942 Wil Wilkinson – $272,558 Ray Dekharghani - $200,027 Marius Gierse Leads 47 Players to Day 3 in $5,000 No Limit Event Day 2 of the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em event began with 359 survivors playing for the 130 spots that made the money. A full ten levels later 47 players remain and Marius Gierse holds an average stack-lead over second place Jordan Knackstedt. Ismael Bojang, Byron Kavorman and Fedor Holz return with healthy stacks while Andy Hwang, Isaac Baron and Chris Hunichen will have a steeper hill to climb on Thursday. Zvi Stern, Tom Marchese, Tom Middleton, David Vamplew and former Main Event champs Ryan Riess and Martin Jacobson all made deep runs in the 863 entrant field. Day 3 has cards in the air at noon and the field will play down to a final table before bagging and tagging. They’ll return for a final table on the ESPN Feature Table stage and play for $800,586 and the bracelet. Top Ten Chip Counts Marius Gierse – 1,496,000 Jordan Knackstedt – 1,013,000 Yue Du – 902,000 Kane Kalas – 863,000 Matt O’Donnell – 853,000 Dominik Nitsche – 734,000 Javier Gomez – 687,000 Upsheka De Silva – 661,000 Justin Adams – 650,000 Georges Georgiou – 646,000 John Monnette Looking for Fifth Final Table of Summer in $1,500 Stud Hi-Lo The final Stud event of the 2016 WSOP drew 521 entries, brought 124 of them to Day 2 and full day of action left 14 players remaining with John Monnette looking for his 5th final table of the summer. A loaded field features Jameson Painter, Calvin Anderson, Bryan Devonshire, Michael Ross and Brandon Shack-Harris. Phillip Hui, Paul Sokoloff and Jimmy Fricke all made deep runs but fell short of Day 3. Daniel Negreanu, Chris Klodnicki, Ben Yu and Mike Leah min-cashed in the event. Play resumes at 2 PM and though the pace of Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo is deliberate, they should crown a winner by day’s end. Top Ten Chip Counts David Prociak – 701,000 John Monnette – 420,000 Al Barbieri – 382,000 Jameson Painter – 379,000 Gaurav Kalro – 375,000 Calvin Anderson – 347,000 Bryan Devonshire – 243,000 Michael Ross – 214,000 Phillip Penn – 184,000 Louis Russo – 163,000 First $1,000 Tag Team No Limit Hold’em Event Draws 836 Teams Team events are not new to the WSOP, Doyle Brunson won a Mixed Doubles event bracelet, but the Tag Team format is new. A player had to register as captain and each teammate had to play at least one round of blinds before the end of registration to be considered official. The event drew 836 teams and 130 remain but it’s anyone’s guess as to how many players are actually still in the event. A team captained by Vladimir Geshkenbein leads the field with 100,000 but those captained by Mike Leah and Alex Bolotin also landed in the top ten. Andy Philachack, Huy Nguyen, James Dempsey, Ben Yu, Cory Waaland, Conor Drinan. Leo Wolpert and Doug Polk all advanced to Day 2. Brian Rast won $1.3 million in the PPC and recorded a cash in the Tag Team event as part of a team with Jeff Gross and Antonio Esfandiari. Each teammate will receive a cash in the event for the amount divided evenly among all members regardless of time played. The field generated a $776,700 prize pool, five-figure payouts start at the final table and the winning team earns $153,358. Top Ten Chip Counts (Team Captain listed) Vladimir Geshkenbein – 100,000 Nick Yunis – 98,300 Mike Leah – 91,400 Nicolas Fischer – 82,700 Alex Bolotin – 81,500 Akash Malik – 79,200 Chris Lindh – 78,100 DNR – 74,400 Matthew Leecy – 68,500 Jeremy Joseph – 65,300 Michael Huntress Tops Elite Field in $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller The $25,000 High Roller event always draws players we're not used to seeing at the WSOP and this summer the event is Eight Max Pot Limit Omaha. It drew 163 entrants and 95 players advanced, but registration remains open until the start of Day 2. Michael Huntress is the first of three huge stacks with Ludovic Geilich and Cary Katz also sitting comfortably. Dan Shak, Josh Pollock and Ryan D’Angelo all bagged up top ten stacks with Paul Volpe, Galen Hall, Max Silver, Christian Harder and Dan Smith all ending with above average stacks. George Danzer, Daniel Negreanu, Joe Hachem, Joey Ingram and Scott Seiver return with short stacks. The prize pool swelled to over $3.8 million but will most likely go up with a few stragglers deciding to join the field late. Isaac Haxton, Mohsin Charania, Talal Shakerchi, Mike Gorodinsky, Anthony Zinno, Phil Galfond, Ben Lamb and Scott Clements are among the players eliminated on Day 1. Top Ten Chip Counts Michael Huntress – 685,000 Ludovic Geilich – 663,000 Cary Katz – 576,500 Joshua Ladines – 452,000 Dan Shak – 450,500 Josh Pollock – 396,000 Arie Miller – 388,000 Dmitry Savelyev – 386,500 Sean Winter – 383,500 Ryan D’Angelo – 369,000 Main Event Madness Creeping Up The Rio’s hallways come to bursting point as the Main Event draws near and the crowds will love Thursday’s schedule of $1,000 No Limit Hold’em at 11 AM PT and the $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event in the afternoon.
  3. [caption width="640"] The 2017 Super High Roller Bowl will be the largest field in the three-year history of the event (PokerCentral photo)[/caption] When registration for the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl opened last week a total of 54 players made the initial deposit to secure their spot in the biggest buy-in tournament of the year. Only problem is, there were only 35 seats available. The remaining 15 seats were being held back for ARIA VIPs and high rollers. After holding a lottery for the available 35 seats, there were 19 players left out in the cold and unable to play in the $300,000 buy-in event. On Wednesday the ARIA announced they would be adding six more seats to bring the total to 56 players - eight seven-handed tables. “Based on the success of last year’s Super High Roller Bowl and the overwhelming interest in this year’s event, ARIA believed it was in our best interest to increase the size of the event by six players,” said Sean McCormack, ARIA’s Director of Poker Operations. The 21 open spots will now be at the discretion of McCormack and the rest of the ARIA poker management team. Announcements as to who is filling those available seats could come as early as next week. Some of the bigger names who missed out on the lottery include Daniel Negreanu, Jason Koon, Dan Colman and Dan Smith. READ: 10 Players We Hope to See in the Super High Roller Bowl Field“More players getting a chance to play against some of the best competition in the world and more recreational players getting a chance to measure themselves against those top players in a televised event will only add to the total experience for poker fans,” said McCormack. With the rake-free event expected to sell out all 56 seats, the total prize pool will be $16.8 million with the eventual winner walking away with $6 million. Given the overwhelming popularity of the event and the subsequent expansion of the field, organizers have already determined to expand the field for 2018 to 56 as well. The Super High Roller Bowl runs May 28 - 31 at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

  4. As the final days of 2017 slowly tick by, it's time to take a look back at the year in poker. Over the last 10 days of the year, PocketFives is taking readers on a trip back in time to recap the last 12 months in a fun and unique way. To date we've gone over the top five off-the-felt news stories of 2017, the top heaters of the year, covered the game's newest characters, breakout stars, grudges, and WTF Moments. Keeping with the theme of wacky and weird, up next is the Year in Flops. and Fails. #5 - No Shot Clock during the World Series of Poker The WSOP added new clock rules to their 2017 campaign but missed the boat on the clock players were really looking for. Whether you call it a shot clock or an action clock, the timer used in events like Super High Roller Bowl and the World Poker Tour was a hit in 2017. The outcry for it to be used in World Series events fell on deaf ears as the biggest tournament series in poker declined to add it for 2017. The lack of such a product hurt the WSOP Europe One Drop event immensely. The tanking reached a fever pitch and reigning Poker Master Steffen Sontheimer spoke out on behalf of the High Roller community. Joining him were businessmen Bill Perkins and Dan Shak, who said they would boycott any future events that do not have a shot clock. With the Big One For One Drop coming back to next year’s WSOP schedule, those in charge have some major decisions to make over the next few months. https://twitter.com/RunGo0seRun/status/927224889660071937? #4 - WSOP Streaming Schedule The old world of all WSOP final tables streaming for free on the World Series website became a thing of the past. Just before the 2017 WSOP began, PokerGO took hold of the ownership rights to stream WSOP final tables. The paid subscription service provided high-quality content, but left fans wanting more and the feeling of they weren’t getting enough bang for their buck. “Only” 16 events were broadcast but that total does not include all days of Main Event coverage that streamed live. Notably lacking were mixed game events and perhaps they will be added back into the rotation next year. In an industry where free content has long been the norm, the adjustment period to PokerGO’s new age business model is still being digested. #3 - PokerStars Live Rebrand Fizzles The largest change to the PokerStars Live series in 2017 came in the form of a name change. Out with the tour brands players grew to love and in with PokerStars Championships and Festivals. The first step of this process was poorly executed in the beholden Bahamas and the former but now brought back PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event drew only 738 entrants and was met with lackluster reviews from the professional and recreational ranks. That lack of enthusiasm carried over for the full year as numbers fell for the larger portion of PokerStars Live events. The company brought back the name brands of European Poker Tour and PCA to start 2018 in an attempt to spark new interest in the worldwide live tour. #2 - Gardens Casino Punts a $1 Million Guarantee Lofty guarantees drive players to casinos where they might not play otherwise. In September, the Gardens Casino in Los Angeles put a $565 buy-in with a $1 million guarantee on the schedule. Players showed up for the 14 flights initially listed but the guarantee was not met. So what did the Gardens Casino do instead of pay out the difference? They added more flights. Three more, in fact. A move such as this was unprecedented among the community and players took notice. The social media airwaves were unkind to Gardens for their decision to alter the schedule of the tournament. Most notably, complaints were made about the property overstepping the bounds of player trust and changing the starting days listed. All of this lead to a public relations disaster for the property. The tournament wound up overlaying anyway and the Gardens Casino poker team will have a lot on their hands should they end up running a similar event in the future. #1 - WSOP Player of the Year Formula In the end, the World Series and its much-maligned points formula for Player of the Year got what it deserved. From the moment this summer’s WSOP kicked off, players were displeased with the new formula put in place to decide one of poker’s most highly coveted awards. Ostensibly, no player feedback was asked for by the WSOP brass before they inputted a system that rewarded Colossus min-cashers more than $10,000 mixed game event ITM finishers. Players who were accustomed to having a linear path to making a run in the POY race found themselves having to reevaluate. Take David Bach, for example. ‘The Gunslinger’ won two bracelets and finished 87th in the final POY standings. In most years, Bach’s two bracelets alone would have him in contention for most of the summer. The result of the broken formula is the soon to be hung banner of 2017 winner Chris Ferguson, who min-cashed his way to the title. A fitting finale to a system everyone would rather forget as soon as possible.

  6. The final table of Event #3 ($25,000 Pot Limit Omaha) of the 2018 Poker Masters was headlined by Brandon Adams making his third straight final table appearance but by the end of it all, two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Keith Lehr stood tall to claim the win. Adams, who finished fourth in Event #1 and then won Event #2, and Lehr were joined at the final table by Dan Shak, Ben Yu, Jonathan Depa, and Isaac Haxton. It took nearly three hours before the first elimination on Monday. From UTG, Dan Shak raised to 140,000 with [poker card="9d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2c"] before Jonathan Depa re-raised to 480,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2s"] and Shak called all in. The board ran out [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"][poker card="9s"][poker card="ad"][poker card="4c"] to eliminate Shak in sixth place. Even though he came into the final table with the second biggest chip stack, Brandon Adams fell short in his run for back-to-back titles thanks to Ben Yu. Action folded to Yu on the button and he raised to 175,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"][poker card="qh"][poker card="4h"] and Adams called from the big blind with [js[poker card="th"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8h"]. Adams then checked after the [poker card="td"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"] flop and Yu bet 125,000. Adams tanked for nearly a full minute, using a time bank in the process, before moving all in for 715,000. Yu called. The [poker card="4s"] turn and [poker card="4c"] river actually improved Yu's hand and eliminated Adams. It took almost a full hour before the next elimination happened. Isaac Haxton raised to 280,000 from the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"][poker card="9s"][poker card="3c"] and Jonathan Depa defended the big blind with [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="7d"][poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"] was followed by a bet from Depa and an all in call from Haxton. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] and the river was the [poker card="th"] to give Depa runner-runner two pair to send Haxton out in fourth. Ben Yu lasted just one more hand. Yu raised to 280,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6d"] on the button and Lehr defended his big blind with [poker card="qs"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6s"]. Lehr checked the [poker card="jc"][poker card="th"][poker card="9s"] flop to Yu and then snap-called Yu's shove. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] and the river was the [poker card="8d"] and Yu was out in third. Heads-up play started with Depa holding less than a single big blind more than Lehr and took just 20 minutes to get to a winner. Now down 3-1 in chips, Depa completed from the button with [poker card="7h"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2s"] and Lehr checked his option with [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5d"] to send both players to a [poker card="js"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2h"] flop. Lehr bet 240,000 and Depa raised to 720,000. Lehr announced he was all in and Depa called and found out he was ahead with two pair. The [poker card="8c"] turn flipped the script though and gave Lehr a bigger two pair. The [poker card="5s"] river changed nothing and Lehr eliminated Depa to claim his first career Poker Masters title. Final Table Payouts Keith Lehr - $333,000 Jonathan Depa - $222,000 Ben Yu - $148,000 Isaac Haxton - $92,500 Brandon Adams - $74,000 Dan Shak - $55,500 With his fifth-place finish, Adams continues to lead the overall points standings for the Poker Masters title and accompanying Purple Jacket. Poker Masters Standings Through Event #3 Brandon Adams - 510 Keith Lehr - 300 David Peters - 300 Jared Jaffee - 210 Jonathan Depa - 210 Brian Green - 210 Isaac Haxton - 180 Jake Schindler - 150 Ben Yu - 150 Rainer Kempe - 150
  7. 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. Joseph Cappello - $88,500 Joseph Cappello started the final table with three big blinds. An early double up was of little help though. Nick Petrangelo raised from under the gun to 60,000 with the [poker card="ks"][poker card="jc"] before Cappello moved all in for 175,000 from the small blind with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"]. Petrangelo called and then Cappello watched the [poker card="qh"][poker card="ts"][poker card="7h"][poker card="kc"][poker card="as"] runout give Petrangelo a straight to eliminate him in sixth place. With the short stack out of the way, five-handed play continued for an hour before the next elimination. Action folded to Kristen Bicknell on the button and she moved all in for 755,000 with the [poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"] before Dan Shak moved all in over the top with the [poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"] and Imsirovic folded his big blind. The [poker card="6h"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3s"] flop kept Shak ahead and after the [poker card="kd"] turn and [poker card="td"] river, Bicknell was out in fifth. It was at this point that Imsirovic went to work. From the button, Imsirovic raised to 120,000 with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"], Cary Katz folded his small blind and Petrangelo moved all in for 1,160,000 with the [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]. Imsirovic snap-called. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"][poker card="6d"] flop gave both players a set and the [poker card="3s"] turn and [poker card="2c"] river couldn't save Petrangelo from a fourth-place finish. Five minutes later, Imsirovic had another victim. From under the gun, Imsirovic raised to 125,000 with the [poker card="ks"][poker card="3d"] and Shak called from the small blind with the [poker card="9d"][poker card="8s"]. The flop came [poker card="9s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2s"] and Shak check-called a bet of 75,000 from Imsirovic. The turn was the [poker card="3h"] and Shak bet 150,000. Imsirovic raised to 550,000 and Shak responded by moving all in for 192,000. The river was the [poker card="tc"] and Shak was out in third. As heads-up play began, Imsirovic had a 10-1 lead over Katz and it took less than 10 minutes for Imsirovic to end it. On the final hand, Imsirovic raised to 180,000 and Katz called. After the [poker card="qs"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2c"] flop, Katz check-raised all in for 1,107,000 and Imsirovic called. Katz turned over the [poker card="kc"][poker card="5c"] for a flush draw and Imsirovic showed the [poker card="9c"][poker card="6s"] for middle pair.

  8. Prior to last year, the Bay 101 Shooting Star Main Event was a staple of the World Poker Tour schedule. After a one-year hiatus, the Shooting Star returned to the poker calendar this week, just without the WPT TV cameras in tow. That didn't prevent the final table from being a star-studded affair, though. Sandeep Pulusani beat out a final table that included two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Loni Harwood, WPT Five Diamond winner Ryan Tosoc and Super High Roller regular Dan Shak to win $354,400 and the third live title of his career. Only five players remained at the start of the final day of play Friday, with Harwood on top with 34.4% of the chips in play. Early action wasn't kind to Harwood as she lost 25% of her chips to Tosoc and then doubled up Pulusani. She got a chunk of those chips back through John Andress before the Pennsylvania-based poker pro met his demise. Andress was down to 80,000 in the big blind. With the tournament using the Big Blind Ante format, Andress was all in for 80,000 before seeing a card. Shak called the 40,000 from the button and Tosoc completed from the small blind. The flop came [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"] and Tosoc checked. Shak bet 50,000, forcing Tosoc to fold, and tabled [poker card="qd"][poker card="2d"]. Andress turned over [poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"]. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] to officially end Andress' run in fifth place. The river was the [poker card="5s"]. Harwood managed to hang around another 90 minutes before losing a flip in heartbreaking fashion. Tosoc raised to 125,000 from the button before Harwood moved all in for just over 1,000,000 from the big blind. Tosoc called and turned over [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"] while Harwood showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="9c"][poker card="6s"] flop kept Tosoc ahead. The [poker card="ks"] turn, however, gave Harwood top pair but the [poker card="7c"] river filled Tosoc's straight and eliminated Harwood in fourth place. It took nearly an hour for the next elimination to occur. Shak raised to 150,000 from the button, Tosoc called from the small blind and Pulusani folded his big. Tosoc checked after the flop came [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"][poker card="5h"] and Shak continued for 200,000. Tosoc raised to 725,000 and then called when Shak moved all in for 3,760,000. Tosoc tabled [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"] for top two pair while Shak showd [poker card="kh"][poker card="jh"] for top pair with a flush draw. Neither the [poker card="9d"] turn or [poker card="jd"] river were of any help for Shak and he was out in third place. Tosoc started heads up play with a 2.5-1 chip lead over Pulusani and it took just over 15 minutes for the final two players to agree to a deal. Pulusani was guaranteed $304,300 and Tosoc locked up $336,500 with an additional $50,100 for the eventual champion. It took another two hours before Pulusani finished off his comeback. Tosoc raised to 300,000 from the button, Pulusani re-raised to 900,000 and Tosoc announced he was all in and Pulusani called. Tosoc showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="9s"] while Pulusani was well ahead with [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"][poker card="5s"][2][poker card="8c"] to give Pulusani top set and eliminate Tosoc. The $354,400 score for Pulusani is the second six-figure score of his career and his first since he won a $3,000 NLHE event at the 2013 WSOP for $592,684. Despite not being a part of the WPT, the Shooting Star still drew 440 players for a total prize pool of $2,156,000. Final Table Payouts Sandeep Pulusani - $354,400* Ryan Tosoc - $336,500* Dan Shak - $200,055 Loni Harwood - $142,440 John Andress - $103,710 Steve Kim - $76,850 Hiroaki Harada - $57,980 Antonios Roungeris - $57,980 John Ko - $44,555
  9. Almost one year to the day since his last recorded live tournament cash, Jason Mercier topped a field of 41 entries in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $50,000 Super High Roller to win $715,860. Mercier defeated Franklin Fok in heads-up play, with Fok taking home a second-place prize o $457,355. On the final hand, Mercier held the [poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] against Fok’s [poker card="As"][poker card="Js"]. The money went in preflop with Mercier shoving all in after Fok limped the button. Fok called but couldn’t hit on the [poker card="Td"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="3s"][poker card="8h"] run out, according to reports from SHRPO.com. SHRPO $50,000 Super High Roller Results 1st: Jason Mercier - $715,860 2nd: Franklin Fok - $457,355 3rd: Tom Boivin - $288,330 4th: Giuseppe Iadisernia - $198,850 5th: Manig Loeser - $139,195 6th: Sam Sweilem - $109,370 7th: Albert Daher - $79,540 For Mercier, the score was the seventh largest of his live tournament career and pushed him to more than $19.5 million in career live tournament earnings. Mercier took a commanding chip lead into the final day of the tournament with seven players left. He had 2.635 million in chips to start and the next closest stack was Giuseppe Iadisernia's 550,000. Mercier busted Dan Shak on the bubble the night before to win a huge pot to secure such a large lead. On the hand against Shak, Mercier had opened to 40,000 from the cutoff position with the blinds at 10,000-20,000 with a 20,000 big blind ante. Shak reraised to 150,000 out of the small blind, and Mercier called to see the [poker card="As"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2c"] flop. Shak moved all in for 740,000. Mercier thought about the decision for a little bit, then called with the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Jh"]. Shak had the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kc"]. No help for Shak came on the turn or river and he was out the door in eighth place on the money bubble. At the final table, Mercier eliminated Albert Daher in seventh and Manig Loeser in fifth en route to getting heads up with Fok. Fok busted Tom Boivin in third place, but he only entered heads-up play with 645,000 in chips to Mercier’s 4.48 million. Mercier made quick work of Fok from there, finishing off heads-up play in less than 10 hands.
  10. The 2019 Poker Masters kicked off this week and the first event is in the books. Winning Event #1: $10,000 No Limit Hold’em was Isaac Baron. Baron topped the field of 97 entries to take home $223,100. To win the title, Baron topped a final table that included Jeremy Ausmus, Sam Soverel, and Scott Blumstein, and he defeated Chance Kornuth in heads-up play. Kornuth earned $164,900 for his runner-up finish. Event 1 Final Table Results 1st: Isaac Baron - $223,100 2nd: Chance Kornuth - $164,900 3rd: Ralph Wong - $116,400 4th: Jeremy Ausmus - $97,000 5th: Sam Soverel - $77,600 6th: Scott Blumstein - $58,200 7th: Dan Shak - $48,500 8th: Thai Ha - $38,800 [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Baron entered the final table of eight with the chip lead and it was Pennsylvania poker pro Thai Ha to bust first in eighth place. Ha went out at the hands of Ausmus when his [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"] lost to Ausmus’ [poker card="8s"][poker card="7s"] in all-in preflop action. Dan Shak was next to bust, and it was Baron who sent him packing. Ausmus had opened to 120,000 holding the [poker card="As"][poker card="Tc"] with the blinds at 30,000-60,000 with a 60,000 big blind ante, and Baron reraised to 330,000 with pocket fives. Shak, who was on a severe short stack, then called all in for 75,000 with the [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Jd"]. Ausmus folded, and it was off to the races for Baron and Shak. No help came for Shak and he was out in seventh place. Although Soverel busted Blumstein in sixth place, he was the next one to bust, and it was once again Baron doing the deed. Baron’s [poker card="As"][poker card="Ac"] held up against Soverel’s [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"] and Soverel was out fifth. After Ausmus was knocked out in fourth and Ralph Wong in third, both at the hands of Baron, it was time for the heads-up match between Baron and Kornuth. Entering the duel, Baron had 8.415 million in chips to Kornuth’s 1.29 million. The two wasted no time getting the money in, as Baron shoved with the [poker card="5c"][poker card="3c"] against Kornuth and his stack of 10 big blinds. Kornuth looked at the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"] and made the call. Unfortunately for Kornuth, the board ran out [poker card="Th"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="Qd"][poker card="Kc"] to give Baron the victory. With the win, Baron took the early lead in the race for the overall Poker Masters title with 300 points. The player to earn the most points over the course of the series will be crowned Poker Masters champion and receive a $100,000 bonus plus the trophy purple jacket.
  11. Team partypoker's own Isaac Haxton is widely regarded as one of the best poker players on the planet. On Sunday he added to that reputation by outlasting 45 other players in the partypoker High Roller Club Main Event. The $25,500 buy-in event had many of the best poker players in the world vying for the eventual six-figure score. Haxton beat all of them to walk away with $437,000. Spaniard Sergi Reixach had to settle for a $287,500 payday after being the final player to fall to Haxton. Pascal Lefrancois picked up yet another six-figure score after winning $184,000 for coming in third place. Many of the players that Haxton dispatched also took a shot in the partypoker High Roller Club Mix-Max Second Chance event. The $10,300 event had 65 total entries with Austria's Thomas Muehloecker outlasting all of them to win $224,840.20. Belarussian Mikita Badziakouski finished as the runner-up for $146,250. Dan Shak, playing from Poland, took the final podium spot and added $78,000 to his bankroll. Brazil's Pablo Brito Silva won the $5,200 buy-in partypoker High Roller club The Big Game to earn $216,635.69. Canada's Andrew Pantling just missed out on yet another victory, finishing second for $157,244.08. Nick Schulman rounded out the top three for $112,089.53. Lester 'mon$terDad' Edoc earned $285,646 for an outright victory in the GGPoker High Roller MILLION$. The $500 buy-in event had 1,832 to entries for a prize pool of $1,129,800. Runner-up 'Lucky_Luke1' walked away with $203,618 for their efforts and third-place finisher 'supermoustache' earned $145,146. While the PokerStars Sunday Million and partypoker MILLION will both play down to a winner on Monday, the GGPoker GGMasters fell 118 players short of the $500,000 guarantee. 'BadReligion' entered the land of competition and proved to be a worthy 21st century boy (or girl) by outlasting all 3,504 of their competitors to win $71,750.75. Coming in one spot short of the title gave 'Langdon' a $50,352.45 score while 'gambelo' earned $35,335.85 as the third place finisher. partypoker High Roller club Main Event Buy-in: $25,500 Entries: 46 Prize pool $1,150,000 Isaac Haxton - $437,000 Sergi Reixach - $287,500 Pascal Lefrancois - $184,000 partypoker High Roller club Mix-Max Second Chance Buy-in: $10,300 Entries: 65 Prize pool $650,000 Thomas Muehloecker - $224,840.20 Mikita Badziakouski - $146,250 Dan Shak - $78,000 partypoker High Roller club The Big Game Buy-in: $5,200 Entries: 229 Prize pool $1,062,460 Pablo Brito Silva - $216,635.69 Andrew Pantling - $157,244.08 Nick Schulman - $112,089.53 partypoker High Roller club Knockout Buy-in: $2,100 Entries: 99 Prize pool: $200,000 Yuri Dzivielevski - $19,015.55 + $23,406.25 in bounties Christian Jeppsson - $18,995.27 + $15,406.25 in bounties Luc Greenwood - $13,575.26 + $2,500 in bounties PokerStars Bounty Builder Buy-in: $109 Entries: 3,249 Prize pool: $324,800 Escapemissio - $17,272.29 + $17,357.30 in bounties ciaca21 - $17,991.41 + $1,350.77 in bounties caiocalmon - $16,315.24 + $835.96 in bounties PokerStars Summer Series Event #80 NLHE Turbo PKO Buy-in: $109 Entries: 3,486 Prize pool: $348,600 SupaFlyGeek - $21,427.84 + $17,231.64 in bounties 777acenace77 - $21,424.67 + $1,633.00 in bounties gkamei09 - $12,711.76 + $1,628.70 in bounties PokerStars Sunday High Roller Buy-in: $2,100 Entries: 64 Prize pool: $128,000 C.

  12. When the final table of the Super High Roller Online $100,000 buy-in began Justin Bonomo's stack was neatly positioned in the back half of the final eight. He had five players in front of him including Sam Greenwood, David Peters, and chip leader Pauli Ayras. Five hours later, Bonomo was the only one with chips and a cool $1,775,000 score. The eight-handed final table was actually the bubble. Orpen Kisacikoglu started with the shortest stack and quickly fell victim to Michael Addamo to bust the $100,000 buy-in event with nothing to show for it. Just over 20 minutes later, Dan Shak eliminated Greenwood in seventh place. It took another 45 minutes before another player was shown the door. Ayras busted Linus Lloeliger in sixth. Just 20 minutes after that, Bonomo eliminated Shak before Addamo took over the role of the dream killer. Addams busted Ayras and Peters inside of a two-minute span to send the tournament to heads-up play while holding 65% of the chips in play. The first six eliminations of the final table took a little less than two hours and the heads-up portion of the tournament took just as long. Bonomo and Addamo traded the chip lead back and forth multiple times before the final hand. Addamo called from the button with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"] before Bonomo moved all-in with [poker card="kh"][poker card="5d"]. Addamo called and then could do nothing but watch the [poker card="kd"][poker card="th"][poker card="3h"] flop move Bonomo into the lead. The [poker card="kc"] and [poker card="3d"] cemented Addamo's fate and gave Bonomo the title. This win marks the third time that Bonomo has won a Super High Roller Bowl event. His first two Super High Roller Bowl wins both came in 2018. He beat out 74 other entries to win Super High Roller Bowl China for $4,823,077 and just over two months later topped the 48-entry field to win the Super High Roller Bowl in Las Vegas for $5,000,000. Super High Roller Bowl Online Payouts Justin Bonomo - $1,775,000 Michael Addamo - $1,187,500 David Peters - $762,500 Pauli Ayras - $487,500 Dan Shak - $325,000 Linus Loeliger - $250,000 Sam Greenwood - $212,500
  13. Some of the top Short Deck players on the planet logged on to GGPoker and registered for Event #43 of the 2020 World Series of Poker ($10,000 Short Deck No Limit Hold’em Championship) but it was Lev ‘LevMeAlone’ Gottlieb, on his third entry, who topped the elite 130-entry field to take home the $276,393.39 first-place prize the gold bracelet. The tournament was the first five-figure buy-in of the series which attracted some of the biggest names in the game. Isaac Haxton, Sean Winter, Mike Leah, Sam Greenwood, Jason Koon and Joao Viera could all be seen in the field. The talent extended to the final table where Amichai Barer, Michael Chi Zhang, Dan Shak, and Sergi Reixach all stood between Gottlieb and the bracelet. But it was Belarusian Short Deck savant Mikita Badziakouski that proved to be the biggest hurdle for Gottlieb. Badziakouski, who has over $2.5 million in live Short Deck earnings on his resume, seemed in control for most of the final table (despite having an issue with his timebank). But Gottlieb overcame a huge initial chip deficit in a long, swingy heads-up battle to deny Badziakouski the bracelet. Amichai Barer was the first to exit the final table when he moved all-in with from early position with 25 antes holding [poker card="ks"][poker card="jd"] and was looked up by Hong Kong’s Yin nam bjorn Li and his [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="ah"][[poker card="qh"]7s] flop put Li in the lead, and narrowed Barer’s possible outs to a gutshot straight or running cards. The [poker card="9c"] hit the turn and when the [poker card="8c"] completed the board, Barer was out in ninth place for $30,986.55. A few hands later, Gottlieb put in a raise to 270,000 from under the gun with [poker card="th"][poker card="jh"] and Carl Schrader quickly three-bet shipped his remaining 1,193,436 with [poker card="as"][poker card="ks"] from the button. Gottlieb made the call, putting Schrader’s tournament life on the line. The [poker card="Kh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="9h"] flop gave Schrader top pair but was a monster board for Gottlieb who turned the straight flush when the [poker card="qh"] peeled off on the turn. The meaningless [poker card="ad"] river sent Schrader to the rail in eighth place for $40,734.96. Li was the next to exit when he moved all-in for 1,756.631 holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="qd"] and was called by Badziakouski with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"]. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"] keeping Badziakouski ahead in the hand with two pair. The [poker card="qh"] turn provided Li a couple of extra outs but the [poker card="6c"] river was not one of them. Li wrapped up in seventh place for $53,550.25. Roughly forty-five minutes later, former worldwide #2-ranked online grinder Michael Chi Zhang exited the tournament. In a hand that went four ways to the [10s][poker card="9c"][poker card="8c"] flop, it checked over Zhang on the button who put in a bet of 200,00 with his [poker card="js"][poker card="7s"], giving him a flopped straight. Gottlieb check-raised Zhang to 1,440,000 having flopped a higher straight with his [poker card="jh"][poker card="qh"]. Zhang shipped his remaining 2,466,458 stack and Gottlieb made the call. The turn was the [poker card="ah"][ and the river was the [poker card="8h"] eliminating Zhang in sixth place for $70,397. Dan Shak, playing out of Poland, was sitting on a short stack when he shipped his final ten antes with [poker card="kh"][poker card="jd"]. From the button, Nobuaki Sasaki made the call holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="9h"]. The flop came [poker card="8h"][poker card="8d"][poker card="9c"] pairing Sasaki’s nine. The [poker card="qh"] turn improved him to a higher two pair but Shak still had outs to his king. The [poker card="7h"] river showed Shak the door and he finished the tournament in fifth place, good for $92,545. Badziakouski limped in with the [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"] only to be shoved on by Sasaki who held [poker card="ah"][poker card="jd"]. Badziakouski ended up making the call and the pair saw the [poker card="9d"][poker card="jh"][poker card="as"] flop, giving both players two pair but putting Sasaki in the lead. The [poker card="8s"] turn didn’t change anything but the [poker card="9h"] spiked for Badziakouski on the river improving him to a full house and shipping him the pot. Sasaki walked away in fourth place with a six-figure payday of $121,649.13, earning the 18 people who invested in him on the GGPoker staking platform a nice return on their investment. During three-handed play, Sergi Reixach suffered a pair of bad beats to Gottlieb, the second of which sent him to the rail. After Gottlieb limped for 60,000 with his [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"], Reixach raised to 360,00 holding [poker card="ks"][poker card="kh"]. Gottlieb three-bet shoved and Reixach called off for less. The [poker card="6d"][poker card="jc"][poker card="th"] flop kept Reixach in the lead. But the [poker card="jd"] turn put Reixach looking for a king to save his tournament life. The [poker card="6c"] completed the board and the Spanish superstar wrapped up in third place earning $159,933.38. It was an intense heads-up match from the start. Badziakouski started a dominating four-to-one chip lead, which Gottlieb managed to double through to take the lead. Badziakouski battled back to regain the chip lead but it slipped away once again. The whole time Badziakouski was having technical difficulties seeing his own ‘chess clock’ timebank, playing not knowing exactly how much time he had to make decisions. When the chips were evened out and both players had fewer than six seconds on their timebank. GGPoker support paused the table for roughly fifteen minutes to work on a solution. The pair then rejoined a newly created table with the standard timebank in place and the tournament continued. When the heads-up battle resumed it was nearly another two hours before the pair played their final hand. After a raise, a three-bet and a call, the duo got all the chips in the middle with Gottlieb holding [poker card="as"][poker card="tc"] while Badziakouski needed some help with his [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="jc"][poker card="7d"] flop gave Badziakouski the lead. The tides then turned when the [poker card="qh"] peeled off on the turn. The pair sweat the river, with Badziakouski looking for a king or queen to stay alive, but it was the [poker card="6d"] which closed the door on Badziakouski's bracelet bid. Badziakouski was forced to settle for 210,248.67 as the runner-up. Lev Gottlieb takes home the $276,393.39 first-place prize and becomes just the second player in WSOP history to win a Short Deck gold bracelet. Final Table Payouts Lev Gottlieb - $276,393.39 Mikita Badziakouski - $210,248.67 Sergi Reixach - $159,933.38 Nobauaki Sasaki - $121,659.13 Daniel Shak - $92,544.53 Chi Zhang - $70,397.34 Yin nam bjorn Li - $53,550.25 Carl Schrader - $40,734.96 Amichai Barer - $30,986.55
