  1. The average age of the players at most of the high roller final tables played inside the PokerGO studio at the Aria in Las Vegas is probably somewhere around 30 years old. On Wednesday night, the final table of U.S. Poker Open Event #6 ($10,000 8 Game) didn't have a single player under the age of 36. And in the end, it was the second-oldest player at the final table, 60-year-old Eli Elezra, defeating the oldest player at the final table, 76-year-old Steve Zolotow, to take home the title and the $183,600 first place prize. The final seven also included Daniel Negreanu, David Baker, and fo
  2. Super Bowl 55 is just hours away, and it is a matchup for the ages, as Patrick Mahomes leads the Kansas City Chiefs into battle, looking for their second straight Super Bowl title. Standing in their way is the most successful playoff quarterback of all time, Tom Brady, leading his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Some of the biggest names in poker are betting on in the big game, and not just on which team is going to cover the spread. Tony Dunst Two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner and current World Poker Tour commentator Tony Dunst says that he is holding off on betting the gam
  3. 2020 was a long year for many professional poker players. Back in March, live tournaments and cash games virtually disappeared overnight in Las Vegas, and around the world, and over the summer, the halls of the Rio, normally packed to the brim with Davipoker pros and amateurs alike, were empty. As two-time WSOP bracelet winner David 'ODB' Baker put it, "2020 was a terrible year for me and most poker players. The bills don’t stop, but the games did." Well, Baker and good friend and fellow poker pro Mark Gregorich ended the year on quite a high note, after a strong showing in two high-profile
  4. On Saturday, Alex Foxen tweeted that he was looking to make some bracelet bets for the 2019 World Series of Poker. Sifting through the responses, it appears he found a few takers. One of the first players to pop into Foxen’s mentions was recent WPT L.A. Poker Classic winner David 'ODB' Baker, who offered $20,000 per bracelet against Foxen. After a little bit of back and forth between the two, they settled on the original offer from Baker at $20,000 per bracelet. Baker then tweeted that his "shop is open for business" and took in a few "friendly" offers of his own. He booked $2,000 pe
  5. Norway’s Espen Sandvik win his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet on Friday, taking down the 2019 WSOP Europe €2,500 8-Game Mix event for €75,426. Sandvik topped a small but tough field of 71 entries, including a final table that had Phil Hellmuth and Jeff Madsen in the mix. The event had a guaranteed prize pool of €250,000. With only 71 entries, the prize pool fell short of the guarantee, creating an overlay for the players involved. €2,500 8-Game Mix Final Table Results 1st: Espen Sandvik - €75,426 2nd: Ville Haavisto - €46,613 3rd: Phil Hellmuth - €31,058 4th: Jeff Madsen - €
  6. Nick Schulman spends a lot of time in the commentary booth during the World Series of Poker but on Monday he wasn't able to do the commentary for one of the $10,000 Championship events. He was busy winning it. Schulman was the sole bracelet winner on Monday as nearly every table was in play for the opening day of one of the new additions to the schedule. Nick Schulman Wins $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo for Bracelet #3 Nick Schulman arrived at the Rio on Monday with the chip lead and just six other players standing between him and the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship title.

  8. The World Poker Tour crowned four champions this week, with three coming from the WPT's delayed final tables that took place in Las Vegas and another one coming in Northern California. The conclusion of these four events cause a lot of shakeup in the Hublot WPT Player of the Year standings, and it's now two-time WPT champion Erkut Yilmaz as the frontrunner with only a handful of events to go. Hublot WPT Player of the Year Top 10 1. Erkut Yilmaz - 2,300 points 2. Dylan Linde - 2,000 points 3. Ping Liu - 1,900 points 4. Tony Ruberto - 1,850 points 5. Jake Schwartz - 1,725 points 6. Tony T

  11. With 90 events on the schedule, it seemed like an inevitability that somebody would win more than one bracelet at the 2019 World Series of Poker and it took until nearly 75% of the schedule had passed to make it a reality.

  13. The recent announcement from the World Series of Poker of a hybrid online-live event that will crown the 2020 WSOP Main Event champion has drawn strong reactions from the poker community. Many players were quick to question the safety of holding a live event in Las Vegas given the current status of the global pandemic while others had questions about the confusion over the status of the title of the "Main Event champion". The new event, which has a $10,000 buy-in and will run on WSOP.com in New Jersey and Nevada and GGPoker.com in international markets, is a freezeout event similar in f

  16. Controlling your emotions is a key component of being a winning poker player and Monday night in Las Vegas, David Baker put on a master class on how to do just that as he won the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic for a little over $1 million. In the afterglow of his win, as the WPT television crew was setting up for one final shot, Baker let go of that control, looked skyward and let out a very visible, audible deep breath. After years of playing poker, with a good amount of time spent at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, Baker finally erased some of what he considered were glaring omis
