  1. Two days ago German poker fans were left disappointed when none of their three countrymen who made the final table of the opening event of WSOP Europe in Berlin were able to walk away with the bracelet. So when only two German players made the final table of the €550 Oktoberfest No Limit Hold'em event, they probably didn't have high expectations. Dietrich Fast didn't want to disappoint anybody though, including himself. Fast beat a final table that included PocketFivers Steve ' mrtimcaum' O'Dwyer, Harry Lodge and Rodrigo 'ZidAAne' Caprioli as well as former WPT winner and two-time WSOP bracelet winner John Gale to win €157,749 ($179,166 US) and the first bracelet of his career. Fast was easily the busiest player at the final table and was responsible for eliminating four players on Monday, including the final three. His toughest opponent turned out to be Gale. The 61 year old, who won his second career WSOP bracelet this past summer, started the day with the chip lead and even held a sizable lead during heads-up play but was unable to overcome the young German. The pivotal hand came 90 minutes before Fast finally finished Gale off. With Gale holding a 2-1 chip lead, he limped from the button and Fast checked his option. The flop came 4h 4s 2s and both players checked. The turn was the As and both players checked again. The river was the 3d and Fast bet 180,000 before Gale raised to 430,000. Fast responded by moving all-in and after giving it some thought, Gale called and tabled 7 5 for a rivered straight but Fast showed Ah 4c for a turned full house. The hand gave Fast the chip lead for the final time. Fast also eliminated Caprioli in third, Vojtech Cervinka in fourth and Sandro Wuest in seventh but he did leave some of the heavy lifting for his opponents. Lodge, who came into the final table with a middle-of-the-pack stack, was the first player eliminated. Lodge moved all-in from UTG with Ad Qc and was called by O'Dwyer's Ac Kc. The flop brought a queen for Lodge but also came with a king to put O'Dwyer ahead. The turn and the river were blanks and Lodge was out in ninth place. Joern Winter, the only other German player at the final table, probably set up the German rail for disappointment when he went out in eighth, also thanks to O'Dwyer. He was quickly followed by Wuest in seventh and Adrian Apmann in sixth. Caprioli then eliminated O'Dwyer in fourth before Fast went to work on wrapping up the tournament. The Oktoberfest event, the lowest buy-in event in WSOP Europe history, attracted a field of 2,144 entrants putting the prizepool at €1,039,000. The next bracelet up for grabs is the €3,250 Eight-Max Pot Limit Omaha event. The final table, which includes Roberto Romanello, Mike Leah, Ismael Bojang and Max Pescatori, gets underway Tuesday at 6 am ET. Final Table Payouts Dietrich Fast - €157,749 John Gale - €97,804 Rodrigo Caprioli - €73,699 Vojtech Cervinka - €56,278 Steve O'Dwyer - €43,409 Adrian Apmann - €33,808 Sandro Wuest - €26,587 Joern Winter - €21,115 Harry Lodge - €16,935
  2. [caption width="640"] Vlad Darie now has his name on the WPT Champions cup after emerging victorious in Vienna.[/caption] When the final table of the World Poker Tour Vienna stop got underway on Sunday evening, all eyes were on Dietrich Fast. The German poker pro was second in chips behind Zoltan Gal and looking for his second WPT title in a little over two weeks after taking down the L.A. Poker Classic. Fast’s run at that second title was cut short, though, as Vlad Darie went on to win WPT Vienna for his first WPT title and $192,496 after beating Gal in a nearly four-hour-long heads-up battle. The first elimination didn’t come for nearly 90 minutes. Darie opened for 60,000 from the button and Georgios Zisimopoulos moved all in from the small blind for 427,000. Darie called and showed [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"], while Zisimopoulos tabled [poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"]. The board ran out [poker card="as"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="qh"] to eliminate Zisimopoulos in sixth place. On the very hext hand, Dominik Bosnjak called from UTG before Fast raised to 70,000 from the cutoff. The blinds both folded and Bosnjak moved all in for 354,000. Fast called and showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] and was racing against the [poker card="th"][poker card="ts"] of Bosnjak. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"] flop put Fast in front and neither the [poker card="jd"] turn nor [poker card="5d"] river was able to save Bosnjak from a fifth place finish. Despite starting the day second in chips, Fast was unable to maintain the momentum, even after sending Bosnjak packing. With blinds at 20,000/40,000, Gal raised to 100,000 and Fast moved all in for 910,000. Gal called with [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"] and Fast tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="3c"][poker card="3h"] flop gave Fast a nut-flush draw, but the [poker card="js"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river failed to complete his hand and he was out in fourth place. Left with just over four big blinds, Matt Davenport raised all in to 175,000 from the button and both Darie and Gal defended their blinds. The board ran out [poker card="qs"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6h"] and Davenport showed [poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"], Gal showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="9d"] for ace-high, but Darie flipped up [poker card="tc"][poker card="9c"] for a rivered straight to win the pot and eliminate Davenport. Even with Davenport’s chips now in his stack, Darie started heads-up play down 2-1 to Gal and quickly found himself in an even bigger hole, down nearly 3-1 after just five hands of play. The sixth hand, however, saw both players make a pair on a [poker card="th"][poker card="7d"][poker card="5h"] flop. Gal made two pair when the [poker card="3s"] fell on the turn and all the chips went in. Darie, who held [poker card="7s"][poker card="6h"], made a better two pair when the [poker card="6s"] hit the river and doubled into the chip lead. Even though the two players played another two-and-a-half hours, Gal never regained the lead. On the final hand of the tournament with blinds at 75,000/150,000, Darie moved all in from the button and Gal called. Gal was ahead with [poker card="ah"][poker card="2h"] against Darie’s [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"] flop changed everything, though, with Darie pairing his six. The [poker card="8h"] turn and [poker card="2c"] river did nothing for Gal and Darie eliminated him in second place to claim the title. The €3,300 buy-in event had 234 entrants for a €702,000 prizepool. The WPT now heads back to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida for three events including the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown and the WPT Tournament of Champions. Final Table Payouts Vlad Darie - $192,496 Zoltan Gal - $123,554 Matthew Davenport - $80,004 Dietrich Fast - $59,269 Dominik Bosnjak - $44,477 Georgios Zisimopoulos - $35,595
  3. [CAPTION=100%]Dietrich Fast added a WPT title to his resume Thursday night in L.A.[/CAPTION] Dietrch Fast denied Mike Shariati a chance at World Poker Tour History Thursday night at the Commerce Casino and captured the L.A. Poker Classic Main Event title for just over $1 million. Shariati, who won the Legends of Poker at the Bicycle Casino last August, was looking to become the first player to win both Los Angeles-based WPT events. It wasn't meant to be, though. Fast, who started the final table fifth in chips, eliminated the final three players to claim the title. Anthony Spinella, winner of the online WSOP bracelet event last summer, started the final table with the chip lead, but was actually the first player eliminated. The downhill slide for Spinella began on just the fifth hand when he dropped nearly 1 million chips to Fast. Seven hands later, he dropped another million to Sam Soverel and before 20 hands had been played, Spinella doubled Alex Keating up as well. The 27th hand spelled the end for Spinella. Left with just 550,000, Spinella moved all in from the cutoff and Fast and Soverel called from the blinds. Fast and Soverel checked the [poker card="6c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] flop. After the [poker card="qs"] turn, Fast checked and Soverel bet 475,000, forcing Fast to fold. Spinella turned over [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"] and Soverel showed [poker card="as"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="tc"] river was no help for Spinella and he was out in sixth. It took 31 more hands for the next elimination. After Keating raised to 195,000 from the cutoff, Farid Jattin moved all in from the big blind. Keating called instantly and tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. Jattin showed [poker card="9d"][poker card="8s"]. The board ran out [poker card="kh"][poker card="qd"][poker card="8h"][poker card="jh"][poker card="2c"] and Jattin was out in fifth. With just four players left, Fast went to work. His first victim was Soverel in a blind vs blind battle. Action folded to Fast in the small blind. He called and Soverel checked. After the [poker card="8c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="4d"] flop, Fast bet 110,000 and Soverel called. After the [poker card="6h"] turn, Fast bet 225,000 and Soverel called. The [poker card="ad"] river got Fast to bet 450,000 before Soverel tanked for nearly a minute. He moved all in for 2,750,000 and Fast took his time in the tank. After nearly four minutes, Fast called and after Soverel showed [poker card="5h"][poker card="3d"] for a busted straight, Fast turned over [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] to take the pot, eliminate Soverel in fourth, and assume the chip lead for the first time. Fast didn't wait long to bust somebody else. On the very next hand, Keating raised from the cutoff to 250,000, Fast re-raised from the button to 675,000. Keating announced he was all in for 4,885,000 and Fast called. Keating turned up [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"], but found himself behind Fast, who held [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"]. Keating found no help on the [poker card="8d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="8h"][poker card="jd"] board and was out in third. Thanks to those two eliminations, Fast held 11,975,000 of the 15,445,000 chips in play. It took only two hours for Fast to end the tournament. Despite a small double-up from Shariati, Fast held control for the entire heads-up battle. On the final hand of the night, Fast opened with a raise to 450,000 before Shariati moved all in for 4,850,000. Fast took his time before calling and tabling [poker card="ac"][poker card="9h"]. Shariati showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="js"][poker card="4c"] flop changed little, but the [poker card="8c"] turn put Shariati ahead, but the [poker card="jh"] river counterfeited Shariati's second pair and gave the title to Fast. Fast, who won the €550 Oktoberfest event at WSOP Europe in October 2015, pocketed $1,000,800 for the victory. He also gets a pair of gold Monster 24K headphones, a Hublot King watch, and a seat into the WPT Tournament of Champions next month in Florida. Final Table Payouts Dietrich Fast – $1,000,800 Mike Shariati – $656,540 Alex Keating – $423,890 Sam Soverel – $316,440 Farid Jatten – $238,070 Anthony Spinella – $191,250
  4. [caption width="640"] Igor Kurganov was a superstar at work at the PSC Barcelona High Roller final table Monday (PokerStars photo/Neil Stoddart)[/caption] At a star-studded final table in the PokerStars Championship Barcelona High Roller on Monday, nobody shone brighter than Igor Kurganov. The Team PokerStars Pro eliminated six of the final eight players in his way to pick up seven-figure score and his first live high roller win since last October. Daniel Negreanu started the final table with a middle of the pack stack but couldn’t win the races he needed to stay alive. Negreanu lost an all-in preflop battle with Dietrich Fast when his [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"] couldn’t beat Fast’s [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"] and was left with just 45,000. He was eliminated on the next hand by Kurganov. Down to just eight players, Kurganov went back to work. Kurganov raised to 175,000, Koray Aldemir called but Stanley Choi moved all in from the big blind for 1,305,000. Kurganov called and Aldemir folded. Choi showed [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] while Kurganov tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="td"][poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5c"] to give Kurganov a pair of aces and eliminate Choi in eighth. Just five minutes later action folded to Bryn Kenney in the small blind and he moved all in for 860,000. Christopher Kruk called from the small blind and showed [poker card="as"][poker card="2h"] while Kenney was behind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="7d"]. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4c"] flop kept Kruk ahead and neither the [poker card="8s"] turn, or [poker card="5c"] river offered Kenney any help and he was eliminated in seventh place. Kruk’s run lasted only one hour longer. Kruk moved all in from the button for 1,600,000 and Kurganov called from the big blind. Kruk showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="qc"] but found himself trailing Kurganov’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="5h"]. The board ran out [poker card="9c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="ac"] to eliminate Kruk in sixth place. The next elimination came just a few hands later. Ivan Luca moved all in for 1,300,000 and Aldemir called. Luca got bad news after he tabled [poker card="as"][poker card="9c"] and found himself dominated by Aldemir’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="th"]. The flop was [poker card="qc"][poker card="8d"][poker card="2h"], leaving Aldemir ahead, as did the [poker card="6c"] turn and [poker card="ad"] river to send Luca out in fifth. It took almost 90 minutes before the next elimination happened, and once again it was Kurganov conducting things. Kurganov raised to 260,000 before Fast moved all in from the small blind for 1,500,000. Kurganov called instantly and showed [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"] which put him well ahead of Fast’s [poker card="2c"][poker card="2h"]. The board ran out with no relief for Fast and he was eliminated in fourth. An hour after that, Kurganov did it again. Bartlomiej Machon folded his button, Kurganov raised to 360,000 from the small blind before Aldemir moved all in for 4,500,000 from the big blind. Kurganov snap-called and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"] while Aldemir was behind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qc"]. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"] flop kept Kurganov. So did the [poker card="9c"] turn. The [poker card="as"] turn was simply icing on the cake for Kurganov, while Aldemir was out in third. Heads-up play began with talk of a deal between Kurganov and Machon. It didn’t take long for the two to come to an agreement. After that, it took just 30 minutes for Kurganov to pick up his sixth and final elimination of the final table. The final hand of the night saw Machon move all in with [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"] only to have Kurganov find [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"] for an easy call. Machon was unable to improve and was eliminated in second, giving Kurganov the title and over €1,000,000. Final Table Payouts Igor Kurganov - €1,078,106* Bartlomiej Machon - €864,694* Koray Aldemir - €528,500 Dietrich Fast - €406,790 Ivan Luca - €322,100 Christopher Kruk - €251,900 Bryn Kenney - €198,200 Stanley Choi - €154,900 Daniel Negreanu - €117,700
  5. When the final table of the inaugural World Poker Tour Bobby Baldwin Classic started Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas there was no shortage of star power or storylines. Darren Elias was going for his record fourth WPT title. Jonathan Little and Sam Panzica were attempting to become the sixth player with three titles. Dietrich Fast was hoping to etch his name onto the Champions Cup for the second time. Joe McKeehen was hoping to put an exclamation point on a WPT Player of the Year season. Kitty Kuo was hoping to become just the second woman to ever win an open WPT event. Elias rose above all of those to etch his name in the WPT history books yet again. Little's run at his first WPT title since 2008 ended just 13 hands after the final table began. Action folded to Little in the small blind and he completed the bet. Sam Panzica moved all in from the big blind and Little called. Panzica tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="4c"] which put him behind Little's [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2s"] flop put Panzica ahead and all Little could do was watch as the [poker card="8d"] turn and [poker card="5h"] river failed to help him out, eliminating him in sixth place. Despite picking up Little's stack, Panzica didn't stick around much longer. One hour later Panzica clashed with Elias and was unable to survive. Panzica raised to 35,000 from UTG and Elias made it 110,000 to go from UTG+1. Panzica moved all in for 385,000 and Elias called. Panzica turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"] and was racing against Elias' [poker card="6c"][poker card="6d"]. The board ran out [poker card="tc"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3s"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3d"] to send Panzica packing in fifth. It was another later when Kuo raised to 125,000 from the big blind after Fast limped his button and Elias defended his small blind. Fast called Kuo's bet and Elias got out of the way sending the two players to a [poker card="kc"][poker card="6d"][poker card="3d"] flop. Kuo moved all in for 980,0000 and Fast called all in. Kuo showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] while Fast had [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"]. The drama ended on the [poker card="qd"] turn as Kuo completed her flush and Fast was eliminated in fourth place as the [poker card="3h"] river completed the board. Ten hands later McKeehen, who needed a win in this event to pass Art Papazyan for WPT Player of the Year, found himself on the ugly side of variance and headed out the door. Elias raised to 45,000 from the button before McKeehen re-raised to 180,000 from the big blind. Elias responded by moving all in for 2,078,000 and McKeehen quickly called all in and turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="qd"]. Elias turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="2c"] but got great news on the [poker card="kc"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"] flop. The [poker card="5c"] turn left McKeehen with just two outs and the [poker card="8s"] river wasn't one of them, eliminating the 2015 WSOP Main Event champion in third. Elias started heads up play with a nearly 3-1 chip lead over Kuo but it took him 103 hands and just over three hours to put a cap on his fourth title. Down to just 7.5 big blinds, Kuo moved all in from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="5d"] and Elias called with [poker card="ah"][poker card="tc"]. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="8h"][poker card="4d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2c"] to eliminate Kuo and give Elias $387,580 and his fourth WPT title. Elias' previous WPT titles came at the Borgata Poker Open (2014), WPT Caribbean (2014), and the Fallsview Poker Classic (2017). Final Table Payouts Darren Elias - $387,580 Kitty Kuo - $248,380 Joe McKeehen - $178,610 Dietrich Fast - $130,895 Sam Panzica - $97,795 Jonathan Little - $74,520
