  1. [caption width="640"] Dmitry Yurasov won the ,000 Six Max NLHE event Friday at the 2017 WSOP (WSOP photo)[/caption] Friday 23rd June = yet another busy at the 2017 World Series of Poker. Another Giant starting flight brought thousands into the Rio, but the big news was the two new bracelet winners crowned last night. There’s a lot to go over, so let’s get down to it. Yurasov claims a bracelet in $10K 6-Handed There are certain tournaments that poker players put at the top of the prestige list at the WSOP. The Main Event is obviously one, but then there’s the $50K Poker Player’s Championship, the One Drop, the $10K 2-7 and the like. The $10,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em Championship is certainly on that list too. Last night saw Dmitry Yurasov as the last man standing, taking down his first gold bracelet, and winning a career-best score of $775,293. This win takes the Russian over $2 million in live earnings, and he had to work for every dime on Friday. Even after start-of-day chip leaderCharlie Carrel was eliminated (15th - $30,922), followed by Eric Wasserson (11th - $39,284),Connor Drinan (9th - $51,494),Dario Sammartino (8th - $69,578), and Grayson Ramage (7th - $69,578), there was still a tough final table to get through. Two-time bracelet winnerKristen Bicknellfell in sixth ($96,823), immediately followed by Albert Daher($138,644) who lost a cooler pot to Yurasov, flush against full house. Artem Metalidi then busted not long after ($204,128) and it was proving to be a very quick final table. It took just 12 hands of three-handed play before Jacob Powers was eliminated ($479,561), leaving Yurasov heads up with Tommy Chen. That went quickly too, eventually ending when Chen shoved on a queen-high flop holding a queen, but trailed Yurasov’s pocket aces. After his victory, Yurasov said "winning this bracelet is a special achievement”, and that it felt like an "easy game” because he was running so well. He busted four of his five opponents! Final table payouts Dmitry Yurasov - $775,923 Tommy Chen - $479,561 Jacob Powers - $308,783 Artem Metalidi - $204,128 Albert Daher - $138,644 Kristen Bicknell - $96,823 Loren Klein wins second bracelet in $1,500 PLO [caption width="640"] Long time poker veteran Loren Klein beat Chun Law heads-up to win his second career bracelet. (WSOP photo)[/caption] Joining Yurasov in Friday’s winner’s circle is Loren Klein, who took down the $1,500 PLO for $231,483. It’s Klein’s second bracelet, having won a $1,500 No Limit Hold'em / PLO mix event last year. “I’ve been playing for 10 years,” Klein said after his win. “I grew up in Michigan and have been slowly moving west. I live in Reno now. Just to be close to the Mountains and Nevada.” Coming into the final day, there were two six-time bracelet winners still in contention. Poker Hall of FamerTJ Cloutier eventually exited in 10th, while Jeff Lisandro busted in 16th. In the latter stages of the final table, Klein dominated. He eliminatedDanny Wong in third when his bottom two pair held up against Wong’s top pair and flush draw; and he made quick work heads up, busting Chun Law holding the nuts. “I had to run good in the last few all-ins for sure but before that I picked up a lot of chips when I could,” Klein said. “TJ’s [Cloutier] results are super intimidating. It was tough to be at a table with one of the greats but I tried to keep it together.” Final table payouts: Loren Klein - $231,483 Chun Law - $143,017 Danny Wong - $100,360 Jeff Williams - $71,423 Jordan Spurlin - $51,559 Oskar Silow - $37,762 Timothy Batow - $28,066 Sergej Barbarez - $21,172 Benjamin Juhasz - $16,215 Final two tables in $1,500 Shootout Just 12 players of the 1,025 who started now remain in Event #43, the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout. To get to this point, that meant lots of big names couldn’t win their tables, and some of those who tried and failed today include Vojtech Ruzicka, Martin Staszko, Tom Middleton, Kevin MacPhee and recent bracelet winner Chris ‘Moorman1’ Moorman. Jonathan Little is arguably the biggest name in the remaining field. The final two tables will kick off at 12pm Saturday, when they’ll be playing for the $257,764 first place prize. Final two tables: Phachara Wongwichit - 637,000 Thomas Boivin - 621,000 Joe Cook - 627,000 Tim West - 641,000 Alex Rocha - 622,000 Matas Dilpsas - 617,000 Robert Kuhn - 636,000 Paul Michaelis - 621,000 Ben Maya - 622,000 Ross Ward - 619,000 Steve Foutty - 627,000 Jonathan Little - 628,000 $3K HORSE down to 18 Another day of mixed games is in the books, taking the 156 who remained in the $3,000 HORSEdown to 18. Tom Koralbagged up the chip lead with 770K, but it’s four-time bracelet winner Mike Matusow that headlines. Matusow sits near the bottom of the counts with 212K, while two-time bracelet winner Ryan Hughes ended with 288K. Some of the notable names we lost during Friday’s action include Stephen Chidwick, Phil Hellmuth, Jason Mercier, Scotty Nguyen and Shaun Deeb. There’s $256,226 up top in this one, with action resuming at 2pm. Top 10 chip counts: Tom Koral - 770,000 Phil Hui - 516,000 Marcus Mizzi - 485,000 Gabe Paul - 484,000 David Steicke - 441,000 Matthew Schreiber - 388,000 Richard Bai - 371,000 Dmitry Chop - 346,000 Brendan Taylor - 312,000 Ryan Hughes - 288,000 $5K Turbo and $1,500 PLO 8 kick off Two new tournaments got going on Friday: Event #45 - the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em (30 minute levels), and Event #46 - the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better. The former attracted 505 runners, of which 49 survived the Day 1. Diego Sanchez holds the overnight chip lead, with Max Silver,Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford, Chris ‘NigDawg’ Brammer, Frank Kassela, Aditya Agarwal, Yevgeniy ‘Jovial Gent’ Timoshenko, and Chris ‘Moorman1’ Moorman still in the mix. They’re all in the money, looking towards the $527,555 first place prize. Felipe Ramos, Doc Sands, Tony Dunst, Davidi Kitai, Dan O’Brien, and Jonathan Duhamel all busted with a cash. Sadly for Faraz Jaka, Justin Bonomo, Mike Leah, Maurice Hawkins, Ryan Laplante, Martin Jacobson, Joe McKeehen, JC Tran, Matt Waxman, Jordan Young, Joe Cada, and Ryan Riess, they failed to get past the bubble. Top 10 chip counts: Diego Sanchez - 660,000 Dennis Blieden - 561,000 Jake Bazeley - 509,000 Max Silver - 504,000 Conor Beresford - 504,000 David Ormsby - 477,000 Christopher Brammer - 464,000 Frank Kassela - 444,000 Aditya Agarwal - 416,000 Yevgeniy Timoshenko - 385,000 Meanwhile the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better brought out 830 players. Day 1 whittled the field down to 151, with Marcos Fernandez bagging a huge chip lead with 251K. To put that in perspective,Miguel Use is second with 160K. Joining those guys tomorrow will be David “ODB” Baker(18,200), Calvin Anderson(79,000), Barny Boatman(54,000), David Bach (18,400), Ben Yu(46,300), Barry Greenstein (24,100),John Monnette (47,400), Jeff Gross (6,000), Ray Henson(61,000) and Fabrice Soulier(45,000). Only 125 make the money, so the bubble will be approaching early on Day 2. There’s $223,339 for the eventual champ, and play resumes at 2pm. Top 10 chip counts: Marcos Fernandez - 251,000 Miguel Use - 160,500 John O’shea - 127,000 James Chen - 84,000 James Alexander - 83,700 Calvin Anderson - 79,000 Yueqi Zhu - 65,000 Boris Kotleba - 55,000 Barny Boatman - 54,000 Marco Johnson - 50,000
  2. The 2019 World Series of Poker continued on Saturday with another massive field in the Big 50 as that event quickly hurtles toward a record for the largest WSOP event ever. Ben Heath Leads Talented Final 12 in $50K High Roller Players were able to register for the $50,000 No Limit Hold'em (Event #5) until the mid-way point of Day 2. This lead to a total of 110 entries and a final prize pool of $5,280,000. Just 12 players remain in contention for the bracelet and the first place prize of $1,484,085. Leading the way is Britain's Ben Heath. Finishing with 5,255,000, Heath managed to go from starting the day second in chips to sitting atop the chip counts. Russian Dmirty Yurasov spent a good amount of time as the chip leader and was only eclipsed in the last level of the night. Yurasov bagged up 4,800,000. Elio Fox sits third with 4,695,000. Chip Leader Coaching's Chance Kornuth ended up in fourth place with 4,510,000. Top 10 Chip Counts Jake Schwartz - 117,600 Julien Martini - 117,400 Jordan Siegel - 95,000 Brayden Gazlay - 91,000 John Racener - 83,100 Jason Daly - 81,300 Andrey Zhigalov - 77,500 Wes Self - 74,500 Layne Flack - 66,200
  3. "I need to win one of these now." Those were the words from Ben Heath in an interview at the beginning of May following his fourth-place finish in the EPT Monte Carlo €50,000 High Roller. At the time, the €298,240 ($333,013) he won for that result was the second largest in his live poker career and his comment was referencing that he's been close in big events and it's time to finally break through. Well, he got that breakthrough when he won the 2019 World Series of Poker $50,000 High Roller for a career-best $1.484 million. "The first three days I think I played really well, a few mistakes," Heath said in the moments after the win. "Today, definitely one or two mistakes but it just happens, I guess. Overall, I’m very happy. Compared to the last four years of my career, there’s a lot fewer mistakes than I’m used to." Coming into the final table, Heath had the chip lead with a stack of 7.63 million. He was only slightly ahead of Sam Soverel, but with Heath’s demeanor, you’d never know one way or another if his emotions were getting the best of him. Heath is a very centered and calm player, but even though he couldn’t fight off the smile the beamed from his face as he described how he felt at the final table. "I wasn’t sure at the start, because I had the exact same chips as Sam,” Heath said. “Then, I think at around one point I had around 16 million and dipped to 8 million four-handed and it was kind of tough to feel like it’s not slipping then. But then it just turned back around." He admitted to only having slept two and a half hours the night before and that he hadn’t slept much all tournament. The young Brit couldn’t pin the reason on jet lag, though, as he mentioned he was only coming over to Las Vegas from Montreal and not all the way across the pond. Armed with adrenaline and coffee and forced to play under the bright lights of the Amazon Room feature table that could keep anyone awake, Heath powered through and found his way to the winner’s circle. "I think it’s mainly the tournament," Heath said of his lack of sleep. "I only came from Montreal and I was surprised there was any jet lag, but there was for three days. Then, on the third day, when I expected it to end, I remembered from my Aussie Millions run that I only slept three hours the night before. I think I’m just not good at sleeping. I just had a lot of coffee today and probably won’t sleep for a while now." Not only did Heath have to fight off a lack of sleep, but he had to do it against some very tough competition. Andrew Lichtenberger was the player Heath had to defeat in heads-up play, and the final six also included the aforementioned Soverel along with Dmitry Yurasov, Nick Petrangelo, and Chance Kornuth. Heath's five opponents in the final six have more than $46 million in live tournament earnings Back in 2017, Heath took second in the Aussie Millions Main Event for a score of A$1 million ($755,229). Up until now, that score was the largest of his live tournament career. It's now taken a back seat to this mammoth gold bracelet victory. After he finished his post-win photos and interviews, Heath jumped in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em and bagged a stack for Day 2. No sleep, no problem.
  4. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year. In June, all eyes were on the 2019 WSOP, which kicked off with a bang that included the largest live poker tournament ever and Phil Ivey's return. WSOP Big 50’s Gigantic Turnout The first installment of the World Series of Poker $500 buy-in 'Big 50' tournament was one for the record books, literally. The tournament that was marketed to give comers from all levels a shot at WSOP glory did that and more, becoming the largest live poker tournament in history. The event attracted a field size of 28,474 entries, crushing the previous record of 22,374 entries set by the 2015 WSOP Colossus. Lance Bradley took a look at the record-breaking event to see how it stacks up against another monstrous tournaments, the number of unique entries versus reentries, and more. Nigerian-born Femi Fashakin turned a $500 entry into $1.147 million in the Big 50 and will forever be remembered for such an achievement. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Controversy at the WSOP The $50,000 High Roller tournament at the 2019 WSOP drew a lot of attention. Understandably so, given it’s huge buy-in and star-studded field. The resulting headlines were less than what was desired, though, as a bit of controversy came about. With four players left in the tournament, Sam Soverel opened with a raise, Dmitry Yurasov moved all in, Andrew Lichtenberger folded, and then Ben Heath asked for a count. While thinking, Heath tossed in a time bank card and Soverel, who might’ve thought the time bank card was Heath’s actual playing cards, quickly folded his hand. This allowed Heath to think through his decision without having to worry about what Soverel was going to do as the original raiser. Yurasov was not happy with Soverel’s play, as were many people on Twitter, including Isaac Haxton. Phil Ivey Returns Guess who’s back? Phil Ivey’s back! It seems that every summer the poker world is waiting to see if Phil Ivey will return to the WSOP tournament tables or not. In 2019, he returned a week into June, kicking things off with the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship. The poker world was buzzing with his return to the series, but it’d have to until about a week later for him to get back on the WSOP scoreboard by cashing in the $800 NL Deep Stack. Ivey went on to cash five times at the WSOP in the summer and twice more at the 2019 WSOP Europe festival in Rozvadov. His best finish in Las Vegas was an eighth-place result in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship for $124,410. Biggest Win of Jason Young’s Life Jason Young has had his fair share of success on the poker felt, with more than $1.2 million in live tournament earnings and a World Series of Poker gold bracelet to his credit. Despite all of that, it was a victory off the felt that proved to be the biggest win of his life. After Young and his girlfriend welcomed their daughter, Kaeley, into the world, things took a turn for the worse. His girlfriend abruptly moved to Florida, away from their home in New York, and she took the daughter with her. Young’s restaurant was lost and he fell into big debt. Through it all, Young kept fighting. He was fighting for his daughter and fighting to get his life back in order. Along the way, poker helped Young get things back together, and the story on Young by Lance Bradley is an absolute must-read. Chidwick, Engel, Schwartz All Wins Bracelets The conversation of who is the best player without a WSOP gold bracelet lost three key figures in the summer of 2019. That’s when Stephen Chidwick, Ari Engel, and Luke Schwartz all claimed their first pieces of WSOP hardware and can no longer be referred to as the "Best Player Without a Bracelet." To make things even more exciting, all three won their first gold bracelet on the same day.
  5. The WPT Online Championship at partypoker is down to its final eight players from the field of 2,130 entries.
