  1. The World Series of Poker bracelet train keeps on rolling, even as the Main Event dominates the attention of the poker world. Six more bracelet events were in action on Wednesday, with just one of them playing down to a champion. Through all of that, the WSOP Player of the Year has a new leader who is actually the old leader. High Roller Newcomer Danny Tang Ships $50K Final Fifty The $50,000 buy-in Final Fifty event was designed for a particular subset of the poker world: the high roller regular. Danny Tang wanted no part of that narrative, however. Tang overcame a final table that included Brandon Adams, Sam Soverel, Adrian Mateos, and Ali Imsirovic to win $1,608,406 and the first bracelet of his career. It's not his first big score though. In May he finished runner-up to Bryn Kenney in the Triton Poker Main Event in Montenegro. Tang says playing events with a buy-in this high is only possible because of the people who believe in him. “After I graduated and decided to turn pro I moved back to Asia and met a load of good people. People who trusted me, people who were willing to invest in me, buy pieces – their support was just unreal," Tang said after his win. “Without them investing, I would never have had the opportunity to move up in stakes eventually and play this tournament.” Tang will look to continue his high roller hot streak in the $100,000 Super High Roller event that begins Thursday. Soverel finished runner-up for $994,072 to pair with his third-place finish in the $50,000 high roller event in the first week of the WSOP. Australian Michael Addamo finished third for $697,375. Final Table Payouts Danny Tang - $1,608,406 Sam Soverel - $994,072 Michael Addamo - $697,375 Brandon Adams - $500,282 Adrian Mateos - $367,186 Keith Tilston - $275,874 Ali Imsirovic - $212,292 Seth Davies - $167,420 Mike Dentale Leads Little One for One Drop Just 48 players remain from a field of 6,248 in the $1,111 Little One for One Drop and Mike Dentale sits atop the chip counts. Dentale started the day with 628,000 and turned that into 13,400,000 as 364 players were sent packing on Wednesday. Pierre-Paul Paulin finished with the second biggest stack after turning 865,000 into 11,285,000. Zachary Donovan is right behind him with 11,130,000. Former #1-ranked online poker player Michael Wasserman ended up in the top 10 with 8,715,000. Shaun Deeb, who started Day 3 with the chip lead was eliminated in 118th place. He added $4,521 to his summer earnings and picked up an additional 248.2 WSOP Player of the Year points. Other notables who busted on Day 3 include Victor Ramdin, Loni Harwood, Mike Sexton, Dara O'Kearney, Lexy Gavin, Ryan Laplante, Felipe Ramos, and Cliff Josephy. Action resumes at 1 PM PT and could play down to a winner.

David Gonzalez sits second with 2,135,000 and Jonas Mackoff has 2,125,000. Nemeth isn't the only former #1-ranked PocketFiver still in contention. Patrick Leonard starts the final day the third shortest stack. Dan Zack picked up a small cash but added 53.9 POY points to his total. Zack was multi-tabling on Thursday after bagging stacks in this event and the $1,500 PLO Bounty event.

Yotsushika ended with 2,148,000 which put him comfortably ahead of former #1 PocketFiver Joao Simao (1,855,000) and Joseph Liberta (1,371,000). Also among the 42 survivors were Jesse Sylvia, Bryce Yockey, Toby Lewis, Jeff Lisandro, Denis Strebkov, and the shortest stack of all, Daniel Negreanu. Dan Zack also cashed in this event, finishing 44th for $3,553 and 105.4 POY points to take over the WSOP POY lead from Robert Campbell. Action resumes at Noon and will play down to a winner.

Day 1 saw 143 players enter with registration still open until the start of Day 2. Nikita Luther, who won her bracelet in the tag team event in 2018, finished with the best stack out of the 51 Day 1 survivors. Luther ended with 538,500. No other player even cracked the 400,000 mark. New Jersey online poker grinder Michael Gagliano sits second with 354,000. His roommates, Daniel Strelitz and Niall Farrell, were two of the earliest casualties on Thursday. Yuval Bronshtein ended with 277,000 for the third biggest stack. Action resumes at 2 PM PT. Top 10 Chip Counts Nikita Luther - 538,500 Michael Gagliano - 354,000 Yuval Bronshtein - 277,000 Haixia Zhang - 264,500 Blair Hinkle - 259,000 Shankar Pillai - 242,000 Chris Ferguson - 224,500 Ben Ponzio - 224,000 James Mackey - 220,000 Fred Berger - 204,500 Corey Wright Leads $1,500 Mixed NLHE/PLO A little bit of this and a little bit of that. The $1,500 Mixed No Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha event brought out 1,250 runners with just 340 of them making it through 10 levels of play on Day 1. Corey Wright finished with 332,500 to edge out Ramali Kusnadi (298,200) and Chance Kornuth (284,500) for the chip lead.

  2. If the opening days of the European Poker Tour stop in Barcelona are any indication, it's going to be a helluva week of poker in the Spanish city. Spanish grinder Sergi Reixach is proof of that. Playing the first €100,000 buy-in event of his career, Reixach topped the 64-entry field in the €100,000 Super High Roller event on Monday, beating a final table that included Luc Greenwood, Danny Tang, Steve O'Dwyer, and eventual runner-up Sam Grafton to win €1,816,210 ($2,015,000 US). Rui Ferreira started the final table with just 11 big blinds, but he took on the role of spectator for the first elimination. Mikalai Vaskaboinikau moved all in from UTG for 720,000 and Reixach moved all in over the top from late position. Vaskaboinikau turned over [poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"] but found out he was behind the [poker card="td"][poker card="th"] of Vaskaboinikau. The board ran out [poker card="6h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="tc"][poker card="as"] to give Reixach a full house and eliminate Vaskaboinikau in ninth. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] Ferreira's spectator status lasted just another 20 minutes before he became Reixach's second victim of the day. Reixach raised to 110,000 from the hijack before Ferreira moved all in for 650,000 from the big blind. Reixach called and turned over a[poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"] which put him ahead of Ferreira's [poker card="ah"][poker card="8c"]. The flop came [poker card="qc"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4d"] and Ferreira was unable to improve. Nothing changed for him through the [poker card="9h"] turn and [poker card="2d"] river and he was out in eighth place. Nearly an hour later, Tsugunari Toma raised from the cutoff before Steve O'Dwyer moved all in for 500,000. Toma called and turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] while O'Dwyer showed [poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="8s"][poker card="2s"] flop kept O'Dwyer ahead but the [poker card="ac"] turn gave Toma top pair and after the [poker card="2c"] river, O'Dwyer was out in seventh. Reixach went got back to work and this time sent of the Greenwood brothers packing. Action folded to Greenwood in the hijack and he moved all in for 1,005,000. Reixach moved all-in from the small blind and then showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"]. Greenwood was slightly ahead with [poker card="6h"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2c"] flop changed things though and Greenwood was left wanting through the [poker card="5c"] turn and [poker card="qd"] river on his way to a sixth place finish. Reixach was involved in the next elimination as well - but only briefly. Reixach raised to 160,000 from UTG and Sam Grafton called from the hijack before Toma moved all in from the small blind for 755,000. Reixach folded but Grafton called. Toma showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] and Grafton tabled [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"] runout failed to save Toma and he was out in fifth place. Four-handed play lasted just 20 minutes before Grafton sent another player to the rail. Kahle Burns raised to 650,000 from the button and Grafton responded by moving all in from the big blind. Burns called all-in and showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="qc"] which put him well ahead of Grafton's [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5d"] flop gave Grafton middle pair and Burns was unable to regain the lead after the [poker card="3s"] turn and [poker card="ad"] river and was eliminated in fourth. Another 20 minutes passed and the tournament was heads-up. From the button, Danny Tang moved all in for 690,000 and Reixach called from the small blind. Grafton folded his big blind and Tang revealed [poker card="ac"][poker card="8h"] only to find himself dominated by Reixach's [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Tang some chop outs but he was happy to see the [poker card="8c"] turn only to have the [poker card="as"] river give Reixach a better two-pair to eliminate Tang in third. Reixach began heads-up play with a slight chip lead and it took nearly three hours for him to finish off Grafton. From the button, Reixach called before Grafton raised to 600,000. Reixach called and then called again after Grafton bet 325,000 on the [poker card="kc"][poker card="js"][poker card="3h"] flop. The turn was the [poker card="5d"] and both players checked. The river was the [poker card="7h"] and Grafton moved all in for 1,725,000 and Reixach snap-called. Grafton showed [poker card="qc"][poker card="6s"] while Reixach happily tabled [poker card="kd"][poker card="8d"] to eliminate Grafton and win the EPT Barcelona Super High Roller for a career-best €1,816,210 score. Final Table Payouts Sergi Reixach - €1,816,210 Sam Grafton - €1,303,950 Danny Tang - €847,570 Kahle Burns - €639,560 Tsugunari Toma - €496,740 Luc Greenwood - €384,980 Steve O'Dwyer - €304,250 Rui Ferreira - €235,950 Mikalai Vaskaboinikau - €180,070
  3. One week ago, Chin Wei Lim pulled a James van Alstyne after busting the €250,000 Platinum High Roller event at World Series of Poker Europe. As soon as the final card hit, giving James Chen the victory, Lim left quickly. On Friday, once the final table of the $100,000 Diamond High Roller finished, the 26-year-old had no choice but to stick around. He had to pose for the winner photos. Lim beat a final table that included Ole Schemion, Matthias Eibinger, Christoph Vogelsang, Anatoly Filatov, and Phil Ivey before beating Jean-Noel Thorel heads-up to capture the first bracelet of his career. This is also the first live win of Lim's career following four runner-up finishes. [ptable zone="NJ Online Poker Promos"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] One hand. That's all Ivey got to play at the final table on Friday. The 10-time WSOP bracelet started with the shortest stack and decided to go for it on the very first hand of play. Ivey moved all in for 2,375,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="5c"] from the hijack and Vogelsang called from the small blind with [poker card="6d"][poker card="6c"]. The board ran out [poker card="ks"][poker card="th"][poker card="2d"][poker card="kc"][poker card="5s"] to eliminate Ivey in eighth place. Danny Tang, who won his first WSOP bracelet earlier this summer when he beat 122 players to win the $50,000 Final Fifty event, started the day with just 16 big blinds and didn't last much longer than Ivey. After Eibinger raised to 690,000 from UTG with [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"], Tang shoved for 3,300,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"] and Eibinger called. Tang couldn't win the race as the [poker card="qh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="8h"] runout kept Eibinger in front and eliminated Tang in seventh. Down to fewer than nine big blinds, Schemion decided to make a stand and wound up having to walk away from the table. Action folded to Filatov on the button and he made it 625,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"]. Schemion moved all in for 2,620,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9h"] and Filatov called. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="3s"] flop changed nothing but the [poker card="th"] turn increased Schemion's outs. The [poker card="ah"] river was not one of them as it completed Broadway for Filatov and eliminated Schemion in sixth place. Five-handed play went on for 3.5 hours before Eibinger and Vogelsang battled in a huge pot that eventually lead to one of them leaving. Vogelsang ended up all in with [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"] which put him behind Eibinger's [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"][poker card="2h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="7h"] to give Vogelsang a flush and leave Eibinger with just eight big blinds. One hand later Eibinger was all in with [poker card="jd"][poker card="8c"] against Lim's [poker card="qs"][poker card="6d"] and couldn't find any help to stay alive and was sent home in fifth. Despite winning the huge hand against Eibinger, Vogelsang was next in the line to become one of Lim's victims. Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 1,600,000 from the button with [k][j], Vogelsang moved all in from the small blind for 12,900,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="3s"] and Lim called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"], forcing Thorel to fold. The board ran out [poker card="ts"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="qh"] to eliminate Vogelsang in fourth place and give Lim the lead with three players remaining. It took nearly an hour to get to heads-up play. Lim folded his button and Filatov moved all in for 12,500,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="3d"] and Thorel called with [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"]. The [c][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop moved Thorel ahead with a pair of kings and when the [poker card="jh"] turn or [poker card="5c"] river didn't improve Filatov, he was eliminated in third place. That pot gave Thorel a four big blind lead heading into heads up play with Lim. It took just 30 minutes for Lim to battle back and capture his first career bracelet. Lim raised to 2,400,000 with [poker card="8s"][poker card="4c"] and Thorel defended his big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9c"]. After the [poker card="8c"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2c"] flop, Thorel checked, Lim bet 4,000,000 and Thorel called. The turn was the [poker card="3c"] and Thorel checked again. Lim bet 6,800,000 and Thorel called. The river was the [poker card="4s"] and Thorel checked again. Lim bet 19,000,000 and Thorel instantly moved all in for 45,000,000. Lim called and tabled his full house to bust Thorel and earn his first career bracelet and a career-best score of €2,172,104. Final Table Payouts Chin Wei Lim - €2,172,104 Jean-Noel Thorel - €1,342,459 Anatoly Filatov - €907,301 Christoph Vogelsang - €633,336 Matthias Eibinger - €457,107 Ole Schemion - €341,510 Danny Tang - €264,440 Phil Ivey - €212,504
  4. Natural8 has patched up another pro as Pennsylvania-based grinder Thai Ha becomes the latest brand ambassador for the rapidly growing online poker site. The 29-year old Ha has already had quite an impressive career with over $2.3 million in career earnings and experience battling in live tournaments at some of the highest stakes. Now, he joins the likes of Danny Tang, Michael Soyza, Henri Bueller, and Kitty Kuo on the Natural8 roster. “I am looking forward to playing the rest of the APT schedule, as well as all the WSOPC events. The $1,000 WSOP Super Circuit Main Event with $5 million guaranteed will be very exciting, but I will same my run good for the $25,000 High Roller Championship with $10 million guaranteed,” Ha said. Natural8 has been making plenty of moves as of late, including helping the Asian Poker Tour take their 2020 schedule online for the very first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ha's live tournament resume is packed with results from high buy-in events. He was even one of the high-profile winners of a $25,000 Platinum Pass for the 2019 PokerStars PSPC. But there was a time that online poker was his main grind, spending several years as an online pro. “I have been playing poker since about 2013 when I was still in college,” Ha said to PocketFives last year. “Since 2014, after I graduated and couldn’t get the job I wanted until very recently, my only income was from poker.” Ha’s career has elevated with some exceptional scores over the past 12 months. They include a second-place finish in the $10,000 Short Deck event at the 2019 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, as well as a runner-up finish in the €25,500 Short Deck event at the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe for $511,788, a career-high cash. Despite not taking home the bracelet in either of those events, Ha's success in Short Deck has turned him into a bit of a Short Deck specialist. “It has the most fun, fast, and addicting action. That being said, I still like No Limit Hold’em tournaments and a mix of some Pot-Limit Omaha cash games,” Ha said. As a member of the Natural8 team, players can find him grinding online under his own name, “Thai Ha”, and splashing around in the mid-to-high stakes cash games and tournaments. For Ha, the features of the Natural8 software, which is part of the GGPoker Network, is just one of the things that made joining the team so enticing. “The Natural8 software makes me feel more relaxed. It’s more like playing a video game instead of poker. Being able to squeeze the river cards are fun as well, and the staking platform is also unique and easy to use. What gets me excited is the sound system, especially the all-in sound!” Ha is planning on playing the remaining schedule of the WSOP Super Circuit Series which runs through May 31.
  5. As the World Series of Poker Online series gets underway on the GGPoker Network, we check in with some of the Natural8 ambassadors (aka Team Hot) to ask them about their WSOP grind, get advice for first-timers, and try to predict who will walk away from the online series with a new piece of poker hardware. Long-time high-roller Danny Tang would love to add to his World Series of Bracelet collection through the tournament being held on Natural8. He captured his first gold bracelet in 2019, the same year he started taking shots in Super High Roller tournaments. Tang outlasted a field of 123 elite entries and took down the prestigious $50,000 NLHE High Roller event for $1,608,406. Tang’s WSOP win was a huge score for sure, but it’s just one of many for the nosebleed tournament player with over $8.5 million in live tournament earnings on his resume. In addition to a WSOP title, 2019 brought Tang a coveted title in the Triton Montenegro Main Event for a career-high cash of $1,796,498 which helped him reach the #1 spot on the #1 ranking on the Hong Kong Global Poker Index. Having hit new highs in his career, Tang continues to show the world that he belongs in the upper echelons of tournament poker by continuing to add to his accolades. What is your schedule like for the upcoming World Series of Poker events on Natural8? I am plan on playing all 54 bracelet events. Which particular event are you most looking forward to playing? Definitely the Main Event, I’m very excited to play the $10k short deck as well. What would it mean to you to win a WSOP bracelet this year? It would be pretty special as it’s the first WSOP on Natural8 and I happen to be one of the ambassadors. Would love to win one! How will the WSOP events change your normal playing schedule? I would need to change my time zone, my sleeping pattern as I’m currently in Asia. I haven’t been playing much lately, I’ve played a lot of cash games last month and took a little break before the World Series. I would need to get back on the grind What’s your typical day look like when you’re playing online? Do you have a routine you follow before or after you start playing? I’m not much of an online poker player, I play more live tournaments. For cash games, I don’t really have a routine because you can play whenever you want. For tournaments, I try to sleep and wake up just before the tournament, take a shower to refresh myself. Don’t eat much as I will feel sleepy when I eat too much. What is your favorite way to unwind or celebrate after a big win or score? Grab some good dinner, party, and KTV. What would you tell people playing in a high pressure, prestigious event for the first time ever? One hand at a time and just relax. Don’t let the pressure get to you, we all have the same two cards. Tell us one player you think will win a bracelet this year? The first player that came to my mind is Patrick Leonard, I don’t follow too much of his online scores but I do like to see his Instagram now and then. Of course, him coming up with a massive score in second for $25k in Natural8, like a month ago. He is one of the best players in the world and I would love to bet on him that he will win a bracelet. Hopefully, I can win one myself as well.
