  1. [caption width="640"] Bryan Hollis makes on trip to Las Vegas a year and this year he's going home with a WSOP bracelet (WSOP photo)[/caption] It only took until Day 2 of the 2017 World Series of Poker to get the first bracelet win out of the way, but that might not have been the top story of the day. The Tag Team event played down to a final six teams and Daniel Negreanu has his team on top heading into the final day. Annual WSOP Trip Turns to Gold for Bryan Hollis Bryan Hollis, a 33-year-old from Maryland, took down the $565 Casino Employees event for a $68,817 score. Not bad for a guy who hasn't played a single tournament all year. "This is my first tournament since playing this event last year," said Hollis. "This is my first cash. I've played the Millionaire Maker once and this is the third year in a row I've played the employee event. I've actually never made it past the first break, except in the Millionaire Maker." Hollis began the final table in the middle of the pack and navigated his through the final 8 players, including runner-up Christopher Solomon, to win the first bracelet of his career. Final Table Payouts Bryan Hollis - $68,817 Christopher Solomon - $42,508 Joshua Clanton - $29,372 Jermel Stephens $20,629 Alex Cordova - $14,731 Adem Arbuckle - $10,698 Christopher Gallagher - $7,903 Vincent Russell - $5,941 Victor Kim - $4,547 Team Negreanu on Top With Six Teams Left Before the 2017 WSOP began, Daniel Negreanu had declared his intention to win three WSOP bracelets. On Thursday he got himself within striking distance of the first one, thanks to his team's success in the $10,000 Tag Team Championship. Team Negreanu, which also includes Eric Wasserson, David Benyamine and Mark Gregorich, sits on top of the field with jus six teams remaining with 1,498,000. They're the only team with over a million in chips. Sitting in second is the team of Anthony Ajlouny, David Fong and Mike McClain with 932,000. Even with just six teams left, there's a lot of high profile players still in the field including Liv Boeree, Igor Kurganov, Ankush Mandavia, Joe Kuether, former WSOP Main Event champ Martin Jacobson, and Mark Radoja. Doug Polk's team, which was on top when Day 2 began, was eliminated before making the money. The final table resumes at 2 pm PT on Friday. Final Table Chip Counts Daniel Negreanu - Eric Wasserson - David Benyamine - Mark Gregorich - 1,498,000 Anthony Ajlouny - David Fong - Mike McClain - 932,000 Liv Boeree - Igor Kurganov - 929,000 Ankush Mandavia - Joe Kuether - 800,000 Martin Jacobson - Mark Radoja - 632,000 Javier Gomez - Lander Lijo - 287,000 50 Advance to $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Shootout Second Round Shootout tournaments are built on a pretty simple premise: win your table and move on to the next round. The $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Shootout started on Friday with 369 entries and by the end of the day just 50 players were left standing. Among the bigger names to move on to the second round, and earn a WSOP cash in the process, were Taylor Paur, Matt Glantz, Dominik Nitsche, Olivier Busquet, Andre Akkari and James Obst. The remaining players return to the Rio at Noon on Friday to play the second round. Rex Clinkscales Tops $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo Eight or Better Day 1 The first non-NLHE event of the 2017 WSOP got underway at 3 pm with 905 players ponying up $1,500 to play Omaha Hi-Lo Eight or Better. Just 254 players advanced to Day 2 with Rex Clinkscales leading the way with 96,200. Day 2 starts at 2 pm PT.

  2. Darren Elias was the headliner Saturday night in Las Vegas as the World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions played down to a winner. Just days after winning his record-setting fourth WPT title, Elias entered the TOC final table with the chip lead and a chance at going back-to-back against some of the toughest fields in WPT history. Matthew Waxman wasn't thinking about that narrative though and after eliminating Elias in third place, had little trouble cruising to victory to capture the TOC and the $463,375 first-place prize money at the Esports Arena at the Luxor Las Vegas. After a double-elimination on the final hand of Day 2, only five players returned for Saturday. With blinds at 8,000/16,000 (8,000) Elias raised to 35,000 from the cutoff before Nick Schulman moved all in for 438,000 from the small blind. Elias called and turned over [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"] which put him ahead of Schulman's [poker card="4h"][poker card="4s"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"] flop put Schulman in the lead but only briefly as the [poker card="7d"] hit the turn. The river was the [poker card="jd"] sending Schulman out in fifth place. Another 22 hands later and Elias, who began the day with the chip lead, was picking up another elimination thanks to fortuitous turn card. David Benyamine moved all in for 370,000 from the small blind and Elias called from the big. Benyamine showed [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"] while Elias found he was behind with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="ts"] flop changed nothing but the [poker card="5h"] turn moved Elias ahead. The river was the [poker card="4s"] and Benyamine was out in fourth place. Any momentum that Elias had built up was erased in hand with Waxman that saw Elias queens outrun by Waxman's jacks, doubling up Waxman and leaving Elias reeling. It wasn't long before Elias' run at back-to-back victories was snuffed out. Matas Cimbolas raised to 50,000 from the button and Elias moved all in the small blind for 645,000. Cimbolas called and showed [poker card="as"][poker card="ks"] while Elias was drawing live with [poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="5s"][poker card="9c"] to give Matas top pair and eliminate four-time WPT champion Elias in third place. Waxman began heads-up play with a 2-1 lead over Cimbolas and he never surrendered it, eliminating his Lithuanian opponent after 38 hands of play. Cimbolas completed from the small blind and Waxman checked to see a flop of [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"][poker card="2h"]. Waxman check-called Cimbolas' bet of 40,000. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] and Waxman check-called again, this time for 125,000. The river was the [poker card="8h"] and Waxman checked again. Cimbolas moved all in for 425,000. Waxman used one of this time extension before announcing a call. Cimbolas showed [poker card="th"][poker card="3s"] and Waxman happily tabled [poker card="qc"][poker card="7d"] for second pair, good enough to win the pot and eliminate Cimbolas. The event, which allows champions from previous seasons to buy-in for $15,000 while Season XVI earned their entry by winning a WPT title, attracted a record-setting 80 players. This was the first year the event was played in Las Vegas after spending the previous two years at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida. Final Table Payouts Matthew Waxman - $463,375 Matas Cimbolas - $265,590 Darren Elias - $177,060 David Benyamine - $123,045 Nick Schulman - $89,290 J.C. Tran - $67,800
  3. There may have only been one 2018 World Series of Poker bracelet winner within the Rio on Friday, but two bracelets were actually awarded. That’s because an online event played out into the early morning hours, as 657 PLO players took their shot on the virtual felt. There was still no winner at the time of publishing, so we’ll have to bring you that info tomorrow. Speaking of PLO, the $25K High Roller has reached a stacked six-handed final table which includes a former PocketFives no.1 player. Here’s everything you need to know about June 22 at the WSOP. Robert Nehorayan Wins First Bracelet in $1,500 Limit Hold’em ($173,568) After three days of play, Robert Nehorayan has come out on top of the 596 players who took part in Event #41: $1,500 Limit Hold’em. For his efforts, he’s banked the lion’s share of the $804,600 prize pool, $173,568, as well as his first gold bracelet. Nehorayan came into the day third in chips, and managed to maintain a big stack as the 19 players returning were whittled down to a final table. Things were a bit swingier from there on, and four-handed saw Terricita Gutierrez hold almost half of the chips in play. However, after losing a few big pots in a row, she found herself short and ended up busting in fourth. Kevin Song and David Gee joined Nehorayan in three-handed play, and a big pot between all of them would take it down to two. Gee was all-in with jack-seven against Song’s pocket aces and Nehorayan’s king-seven. It must have been Nehorayan’s day, as his hand ended up winning to bust Gee in third and take a 3:1 chip lead into heads-up. The two players battled though, and at one point Song managed to take the lead. In the end though, Song was all-in with eight-six suited against Nehorayan’s ten-seven off, and a ten on the flop got the job done. "It feels pretty good,” said Nehorayan after the win. “I got a little frustrated throughout the match but fortunately I was able to overcome my emotions. The cards helped too obviously." Final Table Results: Robert Nehorayan - $173,568 Kevin Song - $107,242 David Gee - $73,860 Terricita Gutierrez - $51,733 Michael Jex - $36,860 Brad Albrinck - $26,725 Oleg Chebotarev - $19,723 Matt Russell - $14,820 Matt Woodward - $11,343 Scotty Nguyen, Shaun Deeb, Ben Yu, Jason Koon Reach $25K PLO Finale There’s going to be one heck of a final table on Saturday, with six players returning in Event #42: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed High Roller. It’s 1998 Main Event champion and five-time bracelet winner Scotty Nguyen who holds the chip lead, followed by defending champion in this event James Calderaro. If he can win this one back-to-back, it’ll certainly be an amazing achievement. Especially when you consider his other competition. Former PocketFives no.1 Shaun Deeb comes in third in chips, followed by Ben Yu, Jason Koon, and finally Ryan Tosoc. Just 35 of the 230 runners returned for Friday’s Day 3, and along the way we lost the likes of Jarred Graham, Paul ‘paulgees1’ Volpe, Adam ‘adamyid’ Owen, Tom Marchese, Erik Seidel and Mike Leah. David Benyamine went out in 7th, bringing the day to an end. He found himself all-in on a flop with middle pair and a straight draw versus Nguyen’s top pair and the higher end of the straight draw. The turn and river bricked, and Benyamine hit the rail to collect $161,020. All six players are guaranteed $215,718 when they take their seats tomorrow at 2pm. There’s a massive $1,402,683 up top for the champ. Final Table Stacks: Scotty Nguyen - 7,010,000 James Calderaro - 6,445,000 Shaun Deeb - 6,305,000 Ben Yu - 4,775,000 Jason Koon - 2,905,000 Ryan Tosoc - 1,300,000 Down to 34 in $2,500 NLHE Day 2 of Event #43: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em saw the 1,071-strong field chopped down further to just 34 players, and leading them all overnight is Seth Davies. He bagged up 1,305,000, but he’ll be joined by some tough competitors tomorrow including Jeff Hakim (1,164,000), Javier Fernandez (1,093,000), Andrew Brokos (625,000), Daniel Buzgon (570,000), Ismael Bojang (497,000), David Peters (480,000), Chris Ferguson (402,000), Ryan Laplante (292,000), and Andreas Klatt (230,000). Where there are survivors there must be casualties, and few of those who failed to make it through the day include Asi Moshe, Justin Bonomo, Humberto Brenes, Kristen Bicknell, Chance Kornuth, Georgios Sotiropoulos, Peter Eichhardt, Dutch Boyd, Maria Konnikova, David “Bakes” Baker, Nick Shulman and John Racener. The final 34 are all in the money, with $12,345 locked up. All eyes will be on the $507,274 winner’s prize though, when play kicks off again at 12pm Saturday. Top 10 Stacks: Seth Davies - 1,305,000 Jeff Hakim - 1,164,000 Javier Fernandez - 1,093,000 Chris Edwards - 720,000 Edan Sucov - 682,000 Jonathan Cohen - 677,000 Andrew Brokos - 625,000 Daniel Buzgon - 570,000 Andre Haneberg - 551,000 Samuel Gagnon - 524,000 $10K 2-7 Triple Draw Championship Down to 13 Michael Noori is once again your overnight chip leader in Event #44: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship, having bagged the lead after Day 1 too. His 870,000 stack sits atop the pile, and he’s followed by Christopher ‘Apotheosis’ Kruk (658,000), Quek Sheng (645,000), Randy Ohel (602,000), and Jason Gray (569,000). Other notables to advance to Day 3 include PocketFives former no.1 Calvin ‘cal42688’ Anderson, although he’s short with 168,000. Matt Glantz and Farzad Bonyadi will both be back tomorrow, with Bonyadi seeking his fourth bracelet after his mom, Farhintaj, won her first a couple of days ago. Out of the 100 players who entered, 41 would make today’s Day 2 including Jordan Siegel (17th), Todd Brunson (16th), Andrew Kelsall (15th), and Mike Matusow (14th) who all went deep. The min-cash is currently $14,864, while there’s $287,987 up top. Action resumes at 2pm. Final 13 Stacks: Michael Noori - 870,000 Christopher Kruk - 658,000 Quek Sheng - 645,000 Randy Ohel - 602,000 Jason Gray - 569,000 Hanh Tran - 423,000 Farzad Bonyadi - 392,000 Nicholas Seiken - 384,000 Kristijonas Andrulis - 304,000 Matt Glantz - 198,000 Steven Tabb - 170,000 Calvin Anderson - 168,000 Tyler Meservy - 65,000 Turbo Time in the 1,000 No-Limit Hold'em (30 minute levels) A fast-paced Day 1 of Event #45: Big Blind Antes $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em (30 minute levels) was played out today, with just 41 of the 1,712 field making it through. Two-time bracelet winner Steven Wolansky bagged the chip lead with 620,000, winning a huge pot to eliminate Pierre Neuville towards the end of the night. All-in with ace-queen against Wolanksy’s ace-eight suited, Wolansky flopped a backdoor flush draw and hit runner runner to win. Joining him at the top of the remaining counts are DJ MacKinnon (532,000), Michael Wang (355,000), King Lun Alan Lau (350,000), Mike Hauptman (338,000), Lander Lijo (290,000), Joseph Cheong (280,000) and Robin Hegele (245,000). Meanwhile, other notables to advance include Athanasios Polychronopoulos (156,000), Kathy Liebert (245,000), Esther Taylor (126,000), and Kelly Minkin (136,000). Plenty of well-knowns tried and failed today, including Joe McKeehen, Martin Jacobson, Greg Raymer, Ryan Riess, Scott Davies, Heidi May, Nipun Java, Michael Gathy, Niall Farrell, Ben Keeline, and David "ODB" Baker. However, they all exited before the bubble burst at 257 players.
