  1. In mid-2012, Davidi Kitai (pictured), a Belgium native who is known on PocketFives as legrouzin, won the European Poker Tour's Main Event in Berlin for nearly a million bucks. In 2008, it was more of the same. That year, he took third in the EPT Barcelona feature tournament for $649,000. Kitai is a sponsored pro of Winamax, which accepts EU players, and you can sign up for Winamax hereto be eligible for a special April PLB Competitionthe site is running in conjunction with PocketFives.

Tipdayis the ultimate sports tipping resource. Check it out. --- We caught up with Kitai while the pro was camped out in Cyprus. He told us, "I'm on vacation right now and am playing some poker. I will move to London in a few weeks and will be there for six months or a year. London seems to be the safest choice if you are a poker player. Many poker players live there and everything is easy, although it's expensive." We can vouch for London being one of the most expensive cities in the world. Kitai said he loves the food, pubs, and clubs of the English city and is soon gearing up to head west to Las Vegas for the annual World Series of Poker. Kitai won his second WSOP bracelet in 2013 in a $5,000 Pot Limit Hold'em event. His first piece of hardware came six years ago in a $2,000 Pot Limit Hold'em tournament. The two bracelet wins were worth about $500,000 combined. "I won my second WSOP bracelet last year, so it gives me confidence to do it again this year," Kitai said of his mindset entering the annual Nevada gathering of poker players. "The schedule looks awesome this year, with so many great tournaments. The beginning of this year has been nice, but could have been better. I have been playing more tournaments, so my ROI this year has not been that amazing. I expect to win a tournament and get a big score before the end of the year." How did his second bracelet compare to his first? What was different about the victory in 2013 compared to 2008? "It was a completely different feeling in 2013 than in 2008, which was my first big win," Kitai commented. "I had signed with Winamax a few weeks before, so it gave me confidence and credibility for the future. Five years later, I already have confidence and credibility, so the 2013 win was more like being able to join a small group of players who have won two bracelets." We've tracked nearly a half-million dollars in winnings for Kitai online. On the live scene, he has $3.6 million in cashes, according to the Hendon Mob, and leads the all-time money list for Belgium. Kitai is #176 on the money list worldwide for tournament poker. As we mentioned, he is a sponsored pro of Winamax. "It is amazing to have a team with so many talented players," Kitai said of the crew at Winamax. "It is always nice to be part of a group in an individual sport like poker. We help each other, share hands, and debate details to perfect our games. We have a great manager, Stephan Matheu, who helps us be on top of our game in every tournament. I also have a mental coach, Pier Gautier, who helps control my emotions."

  2. On Sunday, Davidi legrouzinKitai (pictured) won his third World Series of Poker bracelet. After previously winning two Pot Limit Hold'em WSOP events, his latest piece of hardware came in a $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max tournament. The 16th bracelet awarded at this year's WSOP at the Rio was the first by a non-US player, not counting the WSOP National Championship that took place in New Jersey last month. --- PocketFives' WSOP coverage is brought to you by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada. Play Real Gaming, real money poker on any device. Play now for Final Table Freerolls. Skip straight to the final table and win cash daily. --- Amazingly, Kitai is one of just three non-American players in poker history to win three or more WSOP titles in their lifetime, joining Jeffrey Lisandro (Australia and Italy) and Daniel Negreanu (Canada). Kitai told WSOP officials following the tournament that the live stream of the final table helped him navigate the heads-up match and added that bringing home a bracelet carried much significance: "It's very good for me to win not just for Belgium, but for France, too. I have hundreds of followers and everyone was texting me and posting nice things. It is nice when you know the people back home are watching." Kitai is a sponsored pro of the EU-facing site Winamax. Americans swept the WSOP medal podium in 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974 to 1985, 1987, 1988, 1991, and 1994. Between 1973 and 1986, Americans won a commanding 156 straight WSOP bracelets, according to WSOP officials. During the "modern era" of poker following the historic win by Chris Moneymaker in 2003, the record for consecutive US wins is 41, set in 2005 and 2006. Before Kitai's bracelet had been awarded, the US had captured the first 15 bracelets of the 2014 WSOP at the Rio, dominating in earnings ($27.8 million out of $31.9 million, or 87%) and number of cashes (2,185 out of 2,589, or 84%). Fourteen males had won a bracelet, while Vanessa Selbst has carried the banner for female poker players this year. All-time, the US has won a staggering $1.2 billion in WSOP events out of the $1.7 billion awarded overall, or 70%. The next closest country is Canada with $103 million (6%). US players have won 788 bracelets out of 970 given away, or 81%. Here's how the Six-Max final table cashed out: 1st Place: David legrouzinKitai - $508,640 2nd Place: Gordon stlouis6 Vayo - $314,535 3rd Place: Anthony Ruberto - $200,476 4th Place: Mark RenRad 01 Darner - $132,169 5th Place: John Andress - $89,734 6th Place: Zachary Korik - $62,690 Also on Sunday, 30-year-old George Danzer (pictured) won the first ever $10,000 Razz event at the WSOP for his first bracelet. The German told WSOP officials after the final cards flew, "It's everything. For ten years now, since I was 21, I always wanted to come to the World Series and be a World Champion. I was always watching the news to see who won and I wanted to be like them. I come over every year and it's my tenth year now. When you get close, you get a taste of it, and I came close a couple of times. I'm really, really happy now." Danzer prevented Brandon Shack-Harris from becoming the first dual WSOP bracelet winner this year and became the second non-American to win a WSOP event in 2014 at the Rio. Here's how the final table cashed out: 1. George Danzer - $294,792 2. Brandon Shack-Harris - $182,155 3. Todd Barlow - $114,081 4. Yuval yuvee04 Bronshtein - $82,602 5. Brian Stinger885 Hastings - $64,557 6. Todd Dakake - $51,481 7. Naoya Kihara - $41,806 8. David Bach - $34,500 Stay tuned to PocketFives for the latest WSOP news, powered by Real Gaming.

  3. We're down to two players in Event #15 of the World Series of Poker, a $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max tournament. What started as a field of 810 is now down to two PocketFivers, Gordon stlouis6Vayo and Davidi legrouzin Kitai (pictured). The two are about equal in chips. --- PocketFives' WSOP coverage is brought to you by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada. Play Real Gaming, real money poker on any device. Play now for Final Table Freerolls. Skip straight to the final table and win cash daily. --- First place in the tournament will pocket $508,000, while the runner-up will get $314,000. The two had the option to play even more on Saturday night at the Rio in Las Vegas, but according to WSOP coverage, "When Level 30 ended at almost 2:10am on Sunday morning, the players were given the option to play one more level or pause the tournament and return to their seats once they had managed to get some sleep. They agreed to do the latter." Kitai, a two-time WSOP bracelet winner, delivered the death blow to Tony Ruberto, who started Saturday's play as the short stack, to trim the field to two. Ruberto 4bet all-in with A-6, but Kitai had him beat with A-K. Kitai ducked a flush draw to hold on and Ruberto exited in third place. As a scouting report, Vayo has $1 million in tracked online MTT scores in his PocketFives profile. He plays on PokerStarsas Holla@yoboy and his largest cash came in 2009 in a SCOOP $2,100 PLO tournament for $83,000 after a third place finish. Belgium's Kitai, a Winamax pro, won bracelets in 2013 and 2008; both of them came in Pot Limit Hold'em events. All eyes in the tournament were fixated on Phil Hellmuth (pictured), who was in pursuit of his 14th WSOP bracelet, but came up short and ended the day in eighth place after starting in sixth. After raising under the gun, Hellmuth called all-in with A-2, but could not survive against Vayo's A-7. He recorded his 102nd career WSOP cash, 20 more than the next closest player in that department (Erik Seidel, 82). Here are the chip stacks entering the finale of Event #15: 1. Gordon stlouis6Vayo - 3,750,000 2. Davidi legrouzinKitai - 3,545,000 Also on Sunday, Event #18, the first ever $10,000 Seven Card Razz tournament, will fire back up with a dozen players out of a starting field of 112. Daniel Negreanu (pictured), who along with Phil Ivey extended a 1:1 bracelet bet, is in third place entering Sunday's scheduled conclusion. After accepting action on his bet, Negreanu has already finished second in a $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball tournament for $156,000. We smell another sweat on Sunday for those who picked against Negreanu and Ivey. Here's how the field looks in Event #18: 1. David Bach - 565,000 2. Brandon Shack-Harris - 369,000 3. Daniel Negreanu - 340,000 4. Dan Irisheyes64 O'Brien - 337,000 5. Todd Dakake - 317,000 6. George Danzer - 286,000 7. Todd Barlow - 261,000 8. Yuval yuvee04 Bronshtein - 221,000 9.

  4. Friday evening in Berlin, Jonathan Duhamel put himself into elite territory when he beat David Kitai heads-up to win the €25,600 High Roller event at WSOP Europe to win €554,395 ($609,934 US) and his third WSOP bracelet. With the win Duhamel, who won the WSOP Main Event in 2010, became the first Main Event champion of the November Nine era to win a third bracelet. Duhamel's second bracelet came in July when he won the High Roller for One Drop. “It feels even better than the second one,” Duhamel said. “I felt like this tournament was really tough. It’s one of the toughest I’ve played in my life. To be able to win it, it means everything.” The last WSOP Main Event champion to win more than two bracelets was Chris Ferguson. The six-handed final table, which will be broadcast on ESPN later this year, took just over 6 1/2 hours to complete. When play began Italian poker pro Mustapha Kanit had an overwhelming chip lead but it was Duhamel who made the first move. Just after two hours into the day Duhamel eliminated Fedor Holz in sixth place. Holz, shortstacked for most of the day, raised to 170,000 and Duhamel moved all-in. Holz called and table Ts 9h while Duhamel was ahead with Ad 7s. The flop came Jh 7d 2d adding a gutshot straight draw to Holz's possibilities. The turne was the 7c leaving only the straight draw for Holz. The 5h missed and the young German out in sixth place. Kanit then put his big stack to work. He eliminated the only other German player at the final table, Christoph Vogelsong, in fifth and then Sam Chartier in fourth. With just three players remaining, Kanit had a slight chip lead over Kitai and Duhamel and it all went downhill from there for the Belgian pro. Kanit lost over half of his stack to Kitai on a board showing 9h 7h 3d Qd Jc when he couldn't best Kitai's 9d 8s. And then Duhamel finished the job when he called Kanit's preflop shove. Kanit, with Qh 5s, had live cards against Duhamel's Ac Jd. The flop, turn and river all missed Kanit, leaving Duhamel and Kitai to play heads-up. Duhamel had a slight chip lead over Kitai when heads-up play began and applied pressure throughout the early stages of heads-up play. Down to just over Kitai did double-up at one point but it was nothing more than a momentary blip for Duhamel. On the final hand of the night Kitai moved all-in from the button with Jh 7s and Duhamel called with 7c 7h. The As Ks 2s flop gave Kitai some outs but the 8h turn and 7d river weren't amongst them to give Duhamel the pot, the bracelet and the fourth biggest score of his career. Final Table Payouts Jonathan Duhamel - €554,395 Davidi Kitai - €342,620 Mustapha Kanit - €227,145 Sam Chartier - €160,775 Christoph Vogelsang - €121,020 Fedor Holz - €96,625 Timothy Adams - €81,420
  5. [caption width="640"] Davidi Kitai of the Paris Aviators won the first Global Poker League tournament.[/caption] After months of build up and hype, the Global Poker League finally got cards in the air this week with three days of action and it was two players, Randy Lew of the Hong Kong Stars and Davidi Kitai of the Paris Aviators, who stole the show. Kitai gets the honor of going down in history books as the first winner of a GPL tournament. Kitai came out on top of a Six Max match that included Daniel Cates, Dzmitry Urbanovich and Igor Kurganov. Lew, one of the wildcard picks for the Stars, left his heads-up match with Sergey Lebedev of the Moscow Wolverines with a perfect record – the only player to do so in Week 1. The schedule has teams playing Six Max matches, one player from each squad, on Tuesdays and Heads Up matches on Wednesday and Thursday. Teams play against their own conference until the Summer Series when inter-conference play is introduced for the first time. Day 1 The Paris Aviators had the best opening day in the Eurasian Conference. David Kitai won the first Six Max match and finished third in the second to earn 10 points for the Aviators. The Hong Kong Stars picked up the win in the second match-up thanks to Raiden Kan. The most talked about hand from Week 1 was a hero fold by the Belgian that seemed to dominate post-match conversation. With a 5-1 chip lead over Kurganov, Kitai checked his option with [poker card="ts"][poker card="8h"] after Kurganov limped his button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="8c"]. Kitai then checked the [poker card="8s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3s"] flop to Kurganov who bet 1,600. Kitai check-raised to 4,444 only to have Kurganov reply with a re-raise to 7,288. Kitai folded, leaving announcers Griffin Benger and Sam Grafton in shock. The other end of the spectrum was the Berlin Bears. Daniel Cates managed to post sixth place finishes in both matches, leaving the Bears without any points after Day 1. Cates admitted on Twtter later to being distracted while playing his GPL match. In Americas Conference play, Jason Wheeler, of the New York Rounders, also had a win and third place finish to give his team 10 points. The Las Vegas Moneymakers also had a strong showing thanks to Anthony Zinno finishing runner-up in both matches. And Anthony Gregg repeated Cates’ performance, posting identical sixth place finishes for the San Francisco Rush in both matches. Day 2 With the Six Max matches out of the way, the schedule turned to Heads Up matches in the Eurasian Conference. The Hong Kong Stars vaulted themselves into first place in their division thanks to Randy Lew’s 3-0 sweep of Sergey Lebedev of the Moscow Wolverines. Lew was the only player over the course of two days of heads-up matches to win all three. Grospellier earned six points by beating Cates 2-1 in their match while Justin Bonomo did the same for the London Royals beating Timothy Adams of the Rome Emperors 2-1. Day 3 The third day was all about the Americas Conference. Possibly the most highly anticipated match saw the L.A. Sunset’s Olivier Busquet, considered by some to be the best heads-up sit & go player in the world, going up against Darren Elias of the Sao Paulo Metropolitans. Busquet earned six points for the Sunset, beating Elias 2-1. All three Americans Conference heads-up matches ended with identical 2-1 scores. Tom Marchese of the New York Rounders beat Anthony Zinno of the Las Vegas Moneymakers and the San Francisco Rush got six points from Anton Wigg beating the Montreal Nationals’ Martin Jacobson 2-1. Zinno and Cates were the only two players to play every match for their team in Week 1. Week 1 MVP Sure, Lew went 3-0 in his match against Lebedev and deserves some consideration, but Kitai gets the Week 1 honors. The Belgian pro earned 10 points for his team with a win and a third place finish in the Six Max matches and gave those who tuned in on Twitch something to talk about with his amazing fold against Kurganov. Standings Week 2 Schedule Tuesday, April 12 12:00 pm ET Six Max: Eurasia Conference 1:40 pm ET Six Max: Eurasia Conference 3:30 pm ET Six Max: Americas Conference 5:10 pm ET Six Max: Americas Conference Wednesday, April 13 12:00 pm ET Heads Up: London Royals vs. Hong Kong Stars 2:30 pm ET Heads Up: Paris Aviators vs. Rome Emperors 5:00 pm ET Heads Up: Moscow Wolverines vs. Berlin Bears Thursday, April 14 1:00 pm ET Heads Up: Sao Paulo Metropolitans vs. Montreal Nationals 3:30 pm ET Heads Up: San Francisco Rush vs. New York Rounders 6:00 pm ET Heads Up: Las Vegas Moneymakers vs. L.A.

  6. For the last 10 days the poker world has had its attention on the city of Barcelona as the first partypoker LIVE season came to a conclusion with the partypoker MILLIONS Grand Final. The final table played out on Sunday with some of the most dominant tournament players in the world battling it out for one of three seven-figure scores and in the end it was Canadian Pascal Lefrancois that overcame a stacked final table to walk away with €1.7 million and yet another major title. With four players holding over 100 big blinds at the start of the day, it took 4.5 hours before the first bustout. Down to just about eight big blinds, Thomas Boivin moved all in from UTG and Stephen Chidwick called from the small blind. Boivin showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="3h"] and needed some help after seeing Chidwick tabled [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="7s"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3s"] flop gave him a couple of extra outs, but the [poker card="6c"] turn and [poker card="td"] river were both bricks and Boivin was out in eighth place. It took just a couple of minutes for the next elimination. Davidi Kitai, who came into the final table with the chance to be the first person to own a World Series of Poker bracelet, a World Poker Tour title, a European Poker Tour championship and a partypoker MILLIONS victory, moved his seven big blind stack all in from UTG and Diogo Veiga called from the small blind. Kitai showed [poker card="as"][poker card="jd"] and got great news when Veiga showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="4c"] but the [poker card="kc"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"] flop changed everything. Kitai was unable to catch up after the [poker card="8d"] turn or [poker card="td"] river and was out in seventh place. Veiga's night didn't last much longer. An hour after taking out Kitai, Veiga found himself on the bad side of a clash with Chidwick. After Chidwick raised to 10,000,000 from the cutoff, Veiga re-raised to 39,000,000 from the small blind. Chidwick called and the two players saw the [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3d"] flop. Veiga checked, Chidwick bet 20,000,000 and Veiga moved all in for 84,000,000 more. Chidwick called and showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="3c"] for top and bottom pair while Chidwick was behind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"]. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] keeping Veiga ahead but the [poker card="js"] river paired the board and gave Chidwick the pot, eliminating Veiga in sixth. Jan-Eric Schwippert started the day third in chips, but was unable to weather the storm and fell victim to Adam Owen a number of times before seeing Owen send him off for good. From the cutoff, Owen raised to to 16,000,000 before Schwippert moved all in for 136,000,000 from the big blind. Owen called and showed [poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"] which put him ahead of Schwippert's [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"]. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="jh"][poker card="qs"] and Schwippert was eliminated. The final four players battled for another two hours before the next player was sent packing. Action folded to Dominik Nitsche in the small blind and he moved all in for 71,000,000 and Lefrancois called from the big blind. Nitsche found himself slightly ahead with [poker card="ks"][poker card="6c"] over Lefrancois' [poker card="kd"][poker card="3c"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2c"] flop was harmless, but the [poker card="5c"] turn gave Lefrancois an open-ended straight draw. Nitsche could only shake his head and pack up his things as the [poker card="ac"] river completed the draw to eliminate him in fourth place. Ten minutes later, Chidwick suffered a similar fate. Lefrancois called from the button, Owen folded the small blind and Chidwick moved all in from the big blind for 94,000,000. Lefrancois called and showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"] which put him behind Chidwick's [poker card="ah"][poker card="7c"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"] flop moved Lefrancois into the lead and he maintained that position after the [poker card="5d"] turn and [poker card="8c"] river to bust Chidwick in third. Heads-up play began with Lefrancois holding 65% of the chips in play. Over the first 45 minutes of heads-up play, Owen chipped away at the lead and eventually took the lead for himself only to see Lefrancois return the favor before putting an end to the tournament. Owen raised to 38,000,000 and Lefrancois responded by three-betting to 105,000,000. Owen continued to apply pressure and moved all in for 451,000,000 and Lefrancois called. Owen turned over [poker card="as"][poker card="ts"] but grimaced as Lefrancois had him out-pipped with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] flop gave Owen some hope, but the [poker card="3s"] turn and [poker card="7d"] river offered no relief and gave Lefrancois the final pot of the tournament, the MILLIONS Grand Final title and a cool €1.7 million to with it all. Final Table Payouts Pascal Lefrancois - €1,700,000 Adam Owen -€1,300,000 Stephen Chidwick - €1,000,000 Dominik Nitsche - €800,000 Jan-Eric Schwippert - €602,500 Diogo Veiga - €450,000 Davidi Kitai - €325,000 Thomas Boivin - €225,000
  7. The highlight of the final day of the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure might have been the final table of the Main Event, but on one of the outer tables, Martin Zamani was putting on a show of his own in the $25,000 High Roller event. Zamani beat out a final table that included Thomas Muehlocker, Sean Winter and Dominik Nitsche to pick up $895,110 and just the second win of his career. Following Sam Greenwood's elimination in ninth place, the official final table was ready for action. It took just 10 minutes for a short-stacked Davidi Kitai to find a hand to attempt to double up with. Thomas Muehlocker raised to 45,000 from middle position before Kitai moved all in for 165,000. Muehlocker called and showed [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"] which put him well behind Kitai's [poker card="qd"][poker card="qc"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="ts"][poker card="8c"] flop was a safe one for Kitai as was the [poker card="5c"] turn. The [poker card="js"] river, however, gave Muehlocker two pair and sent Kitai to the rail in 8th place. Five minutes later, Sean Winter joined him in the payouts line. Winter raised to 100,000 from middle position, Tom-Aksel Bedell called from the cutoff before Zamani re-raised to 280,000 from the button. Winter called all in, Bedell also moved all in forcing Zamani to fold. Bedell tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] while Winter showed {as][poker card="th"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3h"] flop changed nothing and after the [poker card="4c"] turn, Winter could only collect his things and watch the meaningless [poker card="9d"] hit the river to confirm his seventh place finish. The pace of play took a significant hit as six-handed play continued for 2.5 hours before the next elimination occurred. Nitsche raised from the button to 60,000 and Gianluca Speranza called from the big blind. After the [poker card="qh"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2s"] flop, Speranza check-raised Nitsche from 50,000 to 185,000 and Nitsche called. The turn was the [poker card="5s"] and Speranza bet 220,000 and Nitsche called. Speranza then moved all in after the [poker card="6c"] and Nitsche called and showed [poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"] for a six-high stright while Speranza tabled [poker card="qs"][poker card="5h"] for two pair. Just 15 minutes later, two more players were sent to the rail. Markus Durnegger moved all in from the button, Bedell moved all in over the top for 1,625,0000 and Zamani called from the big blind. Durnegger showed [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"], Bedell had [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"] and Zamani was well ahead with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="js"][poker card="8s"] to give Zamani the pot and eliminate Durnegger in fifth and Bedell in fourth. A little over an hour later, Muehloecker's run was cut short. Nitsche folded the button, Muehlocker completed from the small blind before Zamani raised to 250,000 from the big blind. Muehloecker responded by moving all for 1,055,000 and Zamani called. Zamani had [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"] while Muehloecker tabled [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="3h"] flop was no help for Muehloecker and neither was the [poker card="9c"] turn or [poker card="8c"] river and Muehloecker was out in third. Heads-up play began with Zamani holding a 2.5-1 chip lead over Nitsche and it took just 20 minutes for Zamani to have all the chips. After Nitsche limped his button, Zamani raised to 360,000 and Nitsche called. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"][poker card="7h"]. Zamani bet 300,000 and Nitsche called. The turn was the [poker card="9d"] and this time Zamani bet 2,000,000 and Nitsche called all in. Zamani showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="7d"] for two pair and Nitsche tabled [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"] for a pair and a gutshot straight draw. The river was the [poker card="2h"], completely missing Nitsche and eliminating him in second place and giving Zamani the first six-figure score of his career.
