  1. [caption width="640"] Harrison Gimbel now has a WPT title to go with his PCA Main Event victory (Joe Giron photo)[/caption] Harrison Gimbel burst onto the live poker scene in 2010 when the then 19-year-old took down the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure to become the youngest winner in the history of that event. On Wednesday night, Gimbel added another title to his resume after defeating Mohsin Charania heads-up to win the World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder event and pocket $275,112. Along with the cash, Gimbel earns entry to the WPT Tournament of Champions next month in his home state of Florida. Charania was hoping to become the fourth player to capture three WPT titles joining Gus Hansen, Carlos Mortensen and Anthony Zinno, but Gimbel wouldn’t be denied. Starting the TV final table with the lowest chip stack, Derek Wolters knew he had some work to do. Unfortunately, it just didn’t work out for the 26-year-old poker pro. Wolters raised from UTG to 90,000 and Gimbel called from the big blind. After a [poker card="9h"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5s"] flop, both players checked. The [poker card="th"] was enough for Gimbel to lead out for 85,000. Wolters responded by moving all-in for 565,000 and after 90 seconds thinking it over, Gimbel called and tabled [poker card="jd"][poker card="9c"], while Wolters showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="td"]. Wolters was ahead, but the [poker card="9d"] river gave Gimbel trip nines and Wolters was eliminated in sixth. Russell Garrett opened from the button to 80,000 and Hafiz Khan moved all-in from the small blind. Garrett called and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"] and was up against Khan’s [poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"]. The board ran out [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="9h"] to counterfeit Khan’s pair and send him home in fifth place. The third elimination of the night happened just 15 minutes later and again began with Garrett opening to 80,000. Gimbel called from the button before Markus Gonsalves made it 275,000 to go from the small blind. Garrett folded, but Gimbel took some time before announcing he was all-in. Gonsalves quickly called and tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"] and found himself ahead of Gimbel’s [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"]. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"][poker card="8c"] to put Gimbel ahead with top pair, but Gonsalves picked up a Broadway draw. The [poker card="qc"] turn put Gimbel further ahead with trips and the [poker card="jc"] river was no help for Gonsalves and he was eliminated in fourth. Three-handed play went on for 90 minutes before Garrett, who began the day with the chip lead, and Charania clashed. Gimbel raised to 120,000 from the button, Charania called from the small blind and Garrett moved all-in from the big blind for 1,770,000. Gimbel folded, but Charania eventually called and tabled [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] and found himself racing against Garrett’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5c"] flop was no help for Garrett and the [poker card="kh"] turn and [poker card="3c"] river were both bricks, sending him out in third place and leaving Charania and Gimbel to play heads-up for the title. When heads-up play began, the two players were separated by just 55,000 in chips - less than one big blind. While it took a little over two hours and 107 hands to go from six players to two, the duel between Gimbel and Charania lasted much longer. The two players played 116 hands of heads-up play with Gimbel and Charania trading the chip lead back and forth at least four times before it finally came to an end. With blinds of 100,000/200,000 and Gimbel holding the lead, Charania limped his button and Gimbel moved all-in. Charania called and showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"], while Gimbel turned over [poker card="5h"][poker card="4h"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Gimbel extra outs for a straight. The [poker card="5d"] turn put Gimbel ahead and the [poker card="5s"] river sealed the deal to eliminate Charania in second place and give Gimbel his first WPT title. The next WPT stop is already underway as WPT Vienna began Tuesday and wraps up Sunday. From there the WPT heads to Florida for three events; the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale and the WPT Tournament of Champions. Final Table Payouts Harrison Gimbel - $275,112 Mohsin Charania - $192,132 Russell Garrett - $123,682 Markus Gonsalves - $91,616 Hafiz Khan - $68,712 Derek Wolters - $54,970
  2. Last August, Art Papazyan entered and won the first World Poker Tour event he ever played when he beat Phil Hellmuth heads-up to win the Legends of Poker event. That scenario repeated itself Thursday night as Dennis Blieden, playing in his first WPT event, beat Toby Lewis heads-up to win the L.A. Poker Classic and walk away with $1,000,000. When the final table began, Manuel Martinez was at the bottom of the chip counts looking up. That situation didn't last long - but not in the way that Martinez had hoped. From UTG, Martinez raised to 60,000 and Blieden defended the big blind. After the [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"][poker card="2h"] flop, Blieden check-raised Martinez's 50,000 bet to 175,000 and Martinez called. The turn was the [poker card="6c"] and Blieden lead out this time for 230,000 before Martinez moved all in for 675,000. Blieden called and tabled [poker card="8c"][poker card="6d"] for a turned full house while Martinez was left looking for two outs with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"]. The river was the [poker card="6s"] to eliminate Martinez in sixth place. Blieden continued to build his stack and picked up another elimination just eight hands later. Blieden raised to 65,000 from the cutoff before Peter Hengsakul moved all in from the big blind for 560,000 total. Blieden called and showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"] which had him ahead of Hengsakul's [poker card="9h"][poker card="8h"]. The board ran out [poker card="as"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"][poker card="6d"][t2] to miss Hengsakul and send him out in fifth place. The first two eliminations came quickly, but the third took some time. 43 hands after Hengsakul was eliminated, Marc Macdonnell clashed with Toby Lewis and saw his run end early. Macdonnell moved all in for 1,105,000 from the button and Lewis called from the big blind. Macdonnell showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="7h"] while Lewis showed [poker card="9d"][poker card="9h"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7d"] flop gave Lewis middle set and as the [poker card="5d"] turn and [poker card="8d"] river were dealt, all Macdonnell could do was watch as he was eliminated in fourth place. Blieden continued his push towards the title just 20 hands later when he sent yet another player to the rail. Lewis folded the button before Derek Wolters moved all in for his last 355,000 and Blieden called from the big blind. Wolters was behind but drawing live after tabling [poker card="qc"][poker card="7c"] and seeing Blieden show [poker card="ks"][poker card="2d"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"] flop moved Blieden even further ahead and the [poker card="2s"] turn [poker card="as"] river actually gave Blieden an unneeded flush as Wolters busted in third place. When heads-up play started, Blieden had Lewis out-chipped by a nearly 4-1 margin. It took only two hands for Blieden to end the tournament. Lewis raised to 120,000, Blieden made it 300,000 and Lewis clicked back to 750,000. Blieden called and then checked the [poker card="6d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3s"] flop. Lewis bet 400,000 and Blieden called. The turn was the [poker card="qh"] and Blieden checked again. This time, Lewis moved all in for 2,200,000 and Blieden called after asking for a count. Blieden showed [poker card="as"][poker card="qd"] and Lewis could only watch in disbelief after tabling [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. The river was the [poker card="6h"] to eliminate Lewis and give Blieden his first major live win and $1,000,000 and entry into the WPT Tournament of Champions this May in Las Vegas. Final Table Payouts Dennis Blieden - $1,000,000 Toby Lewis - $600,630 Derek Wolters - $430,210 Marc Macdonnell - $319,310 Peter Hengsakul - $244,430 Manuel Martinez - $186,325
