  1. The GGPoker Spring Festival may be over, but the massive paydays on GGPoker continue as the 47th edition of the GGPoker Super MILLION$ wrapped up on Tuesday with Wiktor ‘limitless’ Malinowski running white-hot to topple the 184-entry field and the take home $394,852 first-place prize. Perhaps the Spring Festival took the wind (and maybe the bankroll) out of some of the regular high rollers as this week's tournament fell 16 players short of reaching the guarantee leaving GGPoker on the hook for a $160,000 overlay. While an overlay is unusual in the Super MILLION$, a stacked final table is
  2. Isaac Haxton must have seen all of the top players winning GGPoker Spring Festival events and decided to finally throw his hat into the ring. After posting one runner-up finish and three third place finishes, Haxton broke through into the winner's circle to take home nearly a quarter of a million dollars. Haxton topped the 83-entry field in Event #101-H ($10,300 PLO-NL High Roller) to add $230,885.58 to his bankroll. Finland's Eelis Parssinen finished in second place and won $166,934.84 while Ami Barer banked $120,697.23 for his third place finish. Haxton's closest previous call came
  3. This is starting to get ridiculous. For the third consecutive day, former #1-ranked Niklas Astedt navigated his way to a win in a GGPoker Spring Festival event. Those three wins have earned the Swedish superstar a combined $279,247.37. This time around Astedt outlasted 104 other entries in Event #25-H ($5,250 PLO-NL Bounty) to win $140,464.75. His win came at the expense of runner-up Dario Sammartino, who would have completed a two-win day of his own had he not run into the buzzsaw that is Astedt. Sammartino banked $48,929.06 for his performance and coming in third place gave 'yfii-bestcryp
  4. Germany’s Pascal Hartmann entered Tuesday’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table near the very bottom of the chip counts but after chipping up and eliminating each of his final five opponents, the high-stakes superstar emerged as this week’s winner and took home the $454,907 first-place prize. Hartmann has been a consistent presence in the $10K Super MILLION$ field having participated in 31 of the 32 times the tournament has been run. This was his tenth in-the-money finish and fourth final table, the result of which has sent him into the tournament series top 10 money earners. At the start
  5. The 2019 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event wrapped up on Thursday with Alexandros Kolonias picking up the first live win of his career and €1,133,678. Two players eliminated on Wednesday, leaving just six coming back to the felt on Thursday to play down to a winner. Those six played for just over two hours before one was finally sent packing. Down to just 10 big blinds, Rifat Palevic moved all in with [poker card="kh"][poker card="2d"] when action folded to him in the small blind and Anh Do called when he looked down at [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"]. The [poker card="td"][poker c
  6. The World Series of Poker is the biggest stage in the game. The series draws thousands upon thousands of players make their way to the heart of Sin City to put their tournament skills on display in hopes of securing a life-changing score. Every single year a few players not only find themselves in a position to take down a tournament or add a major cash to their poker resume, but also spend some extra time in the poker spotlight due to their overall performance or even just their personality. Here are just a few of this year's participants that found themselves emerge as one of the breakou
  7. In what was an entertaining finale to the greatest poker tournament in the world, Hossein Ensan emerged victorious in the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event to claim the $10,000,000 top prize. Ensan topped the WSOP Main Event’s second largest field ever, 8,569 entries, and defeated Dario Sammartino in heads-up play to become world champion. "This is the best feeling that I've had in all my life and my entire career," Ensan said in the moments after his triumph. "I am so happy I am here with the bracelet in my hand. What can I say? What can I say?" The victory placed an emphatic exclam
  8. When the second night of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event final table began, Hossein Ensan and Garry Gates had most of the chips and almost all of the attention of the poker world. Just one of them survived the four hours of play and now just three players remain in contention for the $10,000,000 first place prize, bracelet, and place in poker history. Gates Struggled to Find Any Footing At the start of the night, Gates had 171,700,000 chips - 33.3% of the chips in play. That turned out to be his high point. After dropping to 152,100,000, Gates lost 44,600,000 to Ensan before t
  9. Winning a World Series of Poker gold bracelet is widely considered by many to be poker’s ultimate achievement. For some players, it defines his or her career. For others, it’s the one prize eluding some of the game’s best. For years, Stephen Chidwick was considered the best poker player without a WSOP gold bracelet. At the 2019 WSOP, Chidwick bucked that monkey off his back like the most turbulent bull does to a rider at a rodeo when he won the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller for $1.618 million. Shawn Buchanan was another player in the "best without a bracelet conversation," but, like C
  10. In the sixth instalment of the 2020 World Series of Poker online Asia time zone events, Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla overcame 3,247 total entries and 426 other players on Day 2 to win Event #55 HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship. Garla secured his first career bracelet to take home $461,709.47. There were eight different countries across four continents represented at the final table of Event #55 (HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship). Brazilian Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla came into the table with a gargantuan 40,674,090 stack with American Alan 'TheCockroach' Schein second in chips with
  11. The 2019 World Series of Poker is in the books, and so is the first part of the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year race. Through nearly 90 eligible events, Australian Robert Campbell leads the WSOP Player of the Year race with 3,418.78 points. Campbell put together a tremendous 2019 WSOP. He cashed nine times, reached the top 10 on five occasions, and won two gold bracelets. Campbell’s first bracelet, which also happened to be the first of his career, came when he won the $1,500 2-7 Triple Draw tournament for $144,027. He would later go on to win the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo event for $385,7
  12. One of the top 50 players in World Series of Poker history added to his bracelet collection on Thursday while one of the top American players under the age of 25 picked up the first bracelet of his career. All of this happened while another field size record was almost broken in the Seniors event. 'The Grinder' Wins Bracelet #5 in $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Michael Mizrachi is the only player to have won the $50,000 Poker Players Championship event three times. On Thursday he became the charter member of another exclusive club: the first player to win five bracelets in the 2010s. Mi
  13. From the 8,659 players that started the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event eight days ago, just nine still remain and Germany's Hossein Ensan stands high above the rest as the chip leader. Now all that stands between him and the $10,000,000 first place prize money is eight other players all hoping to do the same. Another German, Robert Heidorn, was eliminated in tenth place in the very early hours of Saturday morning pausing the clock on the second-largest WSOP Main Event in history until Sunday evening. Ensan ended play with 177,000,000 and is well ahead of the rest of the field with
  14. The 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event is down to 35 players, all guaranteed $261,430 and vying for the event’s $10 million first-place prize. After what was an incredibly entertaining day of poker, Nick Marchington is in the lead with 39.7 million. 21-Year-Old Marchington Leads the Way Marchington hails from England and is 21 years old. Despite his youth, he’s a professional poker player, but Marchington’s success in the game comes from the online poker world and not so much the live tournament world. Entering this event, Marchington had just $12,415 in live tournament earnings, stemming
  15. [caption width="640"] Christopher Vitch now has two WSOP bracelets after winning the K Stud Hi-Lo Championship on Monday (WSOP photo)[/caption] Phil Hellmuth woke up Monday morning with a chance at adding his 15th World Series of Poker bracelet in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship event but as the cards played out, Hellmuth didn’t even make the final table. Instead it was yet another repeat bracelet winner topping the field. While that $10K event played to a winner, another was just starting up on an action-packed day at the 2017 WSOP.

  16. Winning a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title is often a career highlight for most online poker players. On Sunday, a former WCOOP winner added a Sunday Million title to his resume and picked up almost $144,000 in the process. Truth be told, Poland's 'OMGACEACEACE' is a three-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner. On Sunday he beat out 4,294 other players to win the Sunday Million. Brazil's 'verkannt' picked up $100,979.89 for a runner-up performance while 'kappa123mate' rounded out the podium finishers and banked $70,864.56 for finishing third. The best day on Sunday migh
  17. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year. When July comes around, the focus of the entire poker world turns to the most prestigious poker tournament of the year, the World Series of Poker Main Event and 2019 was no different - for a number of reasons. This WAS the Main Event! "This is the best feeling that I’ve had in all my life and my entire career. I am so happy I am here with the bracelet in my hand. What can I say? What can I say?" That was what 55-ye
  18. On Friday night in Las Vegas, Phil Hui won arguably the most prestigious poker tournament in the world, the World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players Championship, earning $1.099 million in prize money, the coveted gold bracelet, and the respect of the game’s elite. "This is my dream," Hui said in the moments after victory. "I’d rather win this than the Main Event. Obviously the money for the Main Event would be amazing, but this is incredible. You have to be well-versed in every single game. It’s a dream come true. This is the one tournament I wanted to win, and play. It’s only the secon

  21. Two more bracelet winners - one a first-time winner and another snagging his third - highlighted Friday's schedule the 2019 World Series of Poker. Jared Koppel Leads Final Six in $2,620 Marathon The Marathon has hit the home stretch and Jared Koppel is out in front by quite a large margin. Koppel finished Day 5 with 11,700,000, more than double that of the next closest competitor, and nearly 41% of the chips in play with just five players remaining. China's Dong Sheng Peng sits second with 5,800,000. Roman Korenev, of Russia, started Day 5 with the chip lead and managed to bag up the
  22. The opening night of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event final table went about as close to script as Hossein Ensan and Garry Gates could have hoped. The two biggest at the start of play, Ensan and Gates were responsible for the first three eliminations as the shortest stacks all went bust. The only deviation from said script, was a fourth player hitting the rail before the end of the night. Milos Skrbic First to Go Nick Marchington got things started early, doubling through Zhen Cai on the third hand of the night leaving Milos Skrbic and Timothy Su as the two remaining short stack
  23. A new event made its PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker debut on Friday, but it was a few familiar faces that made the biggest noise.

'Lena900' beat Benny 'RunGodlike' Glaser heads up to win Event #18 High ($1,050 Omaha Eight or Better) for $27,707.18.
