  1. Longtime PocketFiver and World Series of Poker bracelet winner Eric basebaldyBaldwin (pictured) has made the final nine of the Little One for One Drop, the $1,111 buy-in version of the annual charity event. Baldwin had an emotional roller coaster on Saturday, all-in with sevens against aces early on, but hitting one of his two outs to stay alive. --- PocketFives' WSOP coverage is brought to you by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada.

Skip straight to the final table and win cash daily. --- Then, according to coverage on WSOP.com, Baldwin went "on a mad rush, winning two big all-in pots against Maurice Hawkins. The first saw both players holding A-K, but Baldwin had Ad-Kd and would hit a diamond flush to double up. A few moments later, the two were at it again, this time Hawkins with Ah-Qh and Baldwin with Jd-Jh. Hawkins would take the lead with an ace on the flop, but there were three diamonds on the flop and Baldwin would once again hit a diamond flush to send a pained Hawkins home in 12th place." Jackduyph Duong has the chip lead in the Little One for One Drop with 3.18 million and Baldwin is nipping at his heels with 3.14 million. Up for grabs is a $637,000 top prize. Here's how the chip stacks look entering Sunday's restart: 1. Jackduyph Duong - 3,180,000 2. Eric basebaldyBaldwin - 3,140,000 3. Vimy Ha - 2,825,000 4. Shai Zurr - 2,265,000 5. Brandon Eisen - 2,155,000 6. Matthew Lapossie - 1,960,000 7. Theodore Driscoll - 1,100,000 8. Igor Dubinskyy - 770,000 9. Bao Nguyen - 585,000 In case you missed it, the WSOP Main Event began on Saturday with Day 1A, which attracted 771 players, a 20% decrease from last year's numbers. The tournament played its final five hands just before 1:00am local time to end matters for the day and, at the time of writing, the board showed just over 500 players remaining. 2005 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Hachem gave the ceremonial "shuffle up and deal" command around 12:15pm inside the Amazon Room following rule reminders from Tournament Director Jack Effel. The feature table began with Main Event champions Ryan Riessand Greg Merson (pictured) in some sort of twist of fate, although the three starting days will not be part of ESPN's coverage this year.

  2. There are three bracelet winners to tell you about from Thursday’s 2018 World Series of Poker action: Two first-time winners, and one player who has captured his second piece of poker jewellery nine years after claiming his first. Meanwhile, the $25K PLO High Roller is down to just 35 players. Scroll down to find out who is still in with a shot of winning the enormous $1,402,683 prize. All of that and more in today’s recap of June 21. ErIc Baldwin Wins Bracelet #2, $1,500 NLHE for $319,580 With just two players returning on Thursday to finish Event #37: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em, it looked very likely that Eric Baldwin would capture his second bracelet. It had been nine years since his first WSOP win, and he held a dominating chip lead over his sole opponent, Ian Steinman. Baldwin began with 7,550,000 against Steinman’s 2,200,000, and Baldwin won a big pot right from the get go. However, Steinman was able to double up with pocket sixes against ace-king, and then looked set to double again with pocket kings against ace-jack. However, a jack on the turn followed by an ace on the river gave Baldwin the win. An emotional Baldwin celebrated with his rail, including his mother, before dedicating the victory to his late father, who passed away three years ago. "In a lot of ways, this one is for him,” he said. "It was a lot of hours of poker and a lot of short-handed play, that really sucks your mental energy," Baldwin added. "But man it's fun! I wish everyone could experience this. It's so cool!” Final Table Results: Eric Baldwin - $319,580 Ian Steinman - $197,461 Enrico Rudelitz - $140,957 Aaron Massey - $101,819 Robert Georato - $74,434 Michael Finstein - $55,077 Stephen Song - $41,257 Gilsoo Kim - $31,290 Mathew Moore - $24,032 Scott Bohlman Takes Down Mixed Big Bet for $122,138 [caption id="attachment_619647" align="aligncenter" width="657"] First Bracelet for Scott Bohlman[/caption] Another event which ended short-handed on Wednesday night was Event #40: $2,500 Mixed Big Bet. That meant three players returned today, and again, there was a dominating chip leader. Scott Bohlman held 60% of the chips in play three-handed, but had stiff competition from WPT champ Daniel Weinman and two-time bracelet winner Ryan Hughes. Both of those managed to double up and one point the stacks were virtually even with Hughes even holding the chip lead. After a break though, Bohlman returned refreshed and eliminated Weinman in third with trips against kings-up in a 5-card draw hand. He then had a 5:1 lead over Hughes, and finished the job with a set against top pair and low draw in a Big O pot. Bohlman’s bracelet win is his 52nd WSOP cash. It seems the 52nd time was a charm, as he is now $122,138 richer. Final Table Results: Scott Bohlman - $122,138 Ryan Hughes - $75,477 Daniel Weinman - $49,541 Aaron Rogers - $33,344 Marcel Vonk - $23,028 Jeremy Harkin - $16,329 Preston Lee is SHOOTOUT Champ, Wins $236,498 Thursday’s third and final bracelet came in Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout, which Preston Lee took down for $236,498. [caption id="attachment_619648" align="aligncenter" width="639"] SHOOTOUT Champ Preston Lee[/caption] The final table of ten took over 12 hours to play out, with a four-hour heads-up duel between Lee and eventual runner-up Corey Dodd taking up four of those. The chip lead switched back and forth between the two, before Lee was finally able to take it down with king-deuce holding up against six-five. Lee said he was mostly a cash game player, but that he’d been playing more online to get back into live tournament poker. That work seems to have paid off, giving him his first bracelet. Final Table Results: Preston Lee - $236,498 Corey Dodd - $146,146 Anthony Reategui - $105,907 Dylan Linde - $76,829 Jesse Kertland - $56,763 Young Phan - $42,476 Royce Matheson - $32,198 Alexander Lakhov - $24,728 Bas de Laat - $19,245 Endrit Geci - $15,180 Just 19 Remain in $1,500 Limit Hold’em The field in Event #41: $1,500 Limit Hold’em has been chopped down from 596 to just 19 after Day 2, with Matt Woodward leading the way with 438,000 chips. He’s most closely followed by Jeffrey Scheibner (427,000) and Robert Nehorayan (418,000). Matt Grapenthien bagged a top ten stack (238,000), and he’s the only bracelet winner remaining in the field. Grapenthien took down the $10K Stud Championship back in 2014. Action resumes at 12pm Friday. Top 10 Stacks: Matthew Woodward - 438,000 Jeffrey Scheibner - 427,000 Robert Nehorayan - 418,000 Matt Russell - 361,000 Brad Albrinck - 323,000 Oleg Chebotarev - 312,000 Kevin Song - 290,000 Brian Vollick - 286,000 Matt Grapenthien - 238,000 Michael Jex - 232,000 Ben Yu Leads Final 35 in $25K PLO High Roller One of the biggest events on the WSOP schedule is down to 35 players from the 230 who entered. Event #42: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed High Roller has a massive $1,402,683 for the winner, and right now the player closest to it is chip leader Ben Yu. Yu bagged up 3,695,000, having enjoyed a massive spin-up late in the day. Yu had just 200,000 at the dinner break, before busting two players and riding the wave to the largest end-of-day stack. His closest competitors are Jason Koon (2,540,000), Ryan Tosoc (2,220,000), and Shaun Deeb (2,120,000). There are plenty of big names still in the field though, including multiple bracelet winners Scotty Nguyen (2,010,000), Jason Mercier (1,905,000), Robert Mizrachi (1,005,000), Luis Velador (1,045,000), Erik Seidel (725,000), Mike Leah (660,000), Craig Varnell (625,000), Christopher Frank (565,000), David Benyamine (425,000), Sam Soverel (380,000), Paul ‘paulgees91’ Volpe, and Jarred Graham (300,000). Defending champ James Calderaro (705,000) is still in too, as is Tom Marchese (440,000). Adam ‘adamyid’ Owen is the short stack with just 85,000. A few players who failed to cash in this one include Daniel Negreanu, Anthony Zinno, Jens Kyllonen, JC Tran, Scott Seiver, Chris Ferguson and Michael Mizrachi. Play resumes at 2pm, with all players now guaranteed a min-cash of $37,500. Top 10 Stacks: Ben Yu - 3,695,000 Jason Koon - 2,540,000 Ryan Tosoc - 2,220,000 Shaun Deeb - 2,120,000 Scotty Nguyen - 2,010,000 Jason Mercier - 1,905,000 Jonathan Depa - 1,180,000 Luis Velador - 1,045,000 David Prociak - 1,020,000 Robert Mizrachi - 1,005,000 $2,500 NLHE Gets Going One of the two new events to get started on Thursday was Event #43: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em. It attracted 1,071 entries, and after ten levels just 297 remain. While Ashwin Sarin holds the overnight chip lead with 166,200, it’s David ‘dpeters17’ Peters who headlines the top 10 stacks with 140,500. Former PocketFives no.1 player Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen also finished in the top 10 with 131,500. They’ll all return for Day 2 at 12pm tomorrow. Top 10 Stacks: Ashwin Sarin - 166,200 Steve Foutty - 155,800 Josh Bergman - 145,000 Markus Gonsalves - 143,700 David Peters - 140,500 Andrew Brokos - 140,100 Kainalu Mccue-Unciano - 131,800 Chris Hunichen - 131,500 Brett Shaffer - 130,900 Mark Dube - 130,300 Big Names Advance in $10K 2-7 Triple Draw Championship The second new event of the day was Event #44: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship, which saw 100 players take a shot. When all was said and done after ten levels of play, it was Michael Noori who could call himself the overnight chip leader over the 41 survivors, bagging up 335,000. He’s followed by professional soccer player Max Kruse (282,000). There are plenty of other big names through, including Christopher Kruk (247,500), Luke Schwartz (200,000), Lawrence Berg (171,000), Andrey Zhigalov (170,500), Chris Vitch (159,500), Benny Glaser (156,000), Eli Elezra(155,500), Mike Matusow (136,500), Vanessa Selbst (120,000), Cary Katz (114,000), and Jesse Martin (88,500). Some of those less fortunate today were Daniel Negreanu, John Hennigan, Michael Mizrachi, Stephen Chidwick, John Monnette, Jean Robert-Bellande, James Obst, and David "ODB" Baker. Registration remains open until the start of Day 2 tomorrow, which kicks off at 2pm. Top 10 Stacks: Michael Noori - 335,000 Max Kruse - 282,000 Christopher Kruk - 247,500 Luke Schwartz - 197,000 Lawrence Berg - 171,000 Brant Hale - 171,000 Andrey Zhigalov - 170,500 Quek Sheng - 161,500 Chris Vitch - 159,500 Benny Glaser - 156,000 Tomorrow’s Action (June 22) It will be a busy day in the Rio tomorrow.

  3. The World Series of Poker Player of the Year race featured a new leader almost every week for the duration of the series. Elio Fox jumped to an early lead thanks to his bracelet win and runner-up finish in the $100,000 High Roller all within in the first week. By the middle of June, Fox's epic first week was an afterthought. Post-lim events played a large role in how the final leaderboard shook out. The most competitive race in WSOP history ended (for now) with one of the three-multi bracelet winners from 2018 in front. Shaun Deeb played an incredible amount of volume and is 90 percent of the way toward accomplishing one of his major career goals. Deeb shipped the $10,000 Six-Max a few days after making Day 6 of the Main Event and placing 105th. The bracelet is the second for Deeb this summer and the fourth of his career. Deeb's final haul from the 2018 WSOP includes two bracelets, three final tables, and 16 cashes. 2017 Player of the Year Chris Ferguson is the only player who cashed more times than Deeb and he racked up 17 to lead the category for the second straight year. Second in cashes and second in POY is $50,000 High Roller winner Ben Yu. Deeb defeated Yu heads up in the $25,000 PLO and leads him in POY by a little under 600 points. Yu earned a career-best $1.65 million for his third bracelet win. A few days earlier, Yu took fourth in the DoubleStack Turbo and overall, he concluded his WSOP campaign with four top-four finishes. Yu and Deeb finished in 11th and 12th place, respectively, on the overall WSOP earnings list. The only players ahead of them were Main Event final tablists or a player who cashed in the Big One for One Drop with the exception of one Nick Petrangelo, who won the $100,000 High Roller and took third in the $50,000 edition won by Yu. The player of the moment and third on the POY list is Joe Cada. Cada opened the 2018 summer with a win in the $3,000 Shootout and steadily accumulated from there toward a stellar final two weeks. The 2009 Main Event champion took fifth in his bid at a second title. Following the disappointing finish, Cada jumped in the $1,500 Closer and won the title along with his fourth bracelet in only two days of play. Cada earned a combined $2.7 for the two scores and certified himself a place in the annals of WSOP runs. John Hennigan led the POY race midway through the summer. Hennigan's second-place finish in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship and win in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E was never replicated but he did wind up with 12 cashes in total. Those 12 cashes are 12 more than Hennigan collected in 2017. Hennigan was awarded with a Poker Hall of Fame induction during the Main Event to cap off his best year at the series. Scott Bohlman and Paul Volpe sit in the middle of the 2018 class. Bohlman came close twice to being the first multi-bracelet winner of the summer but settled for second in the $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo and third in the $3,000 PLO Six-Max. Volpe faced off heads up against Deeb in the $10,000 Six-Max and earned silver for his Main Event post-lim. 'The Main Event' made Day 5 of his nicknamed tournament and set a record with eight cashes in events with a $10,000 buy-in or higher. The No Limit players carved out space in the top-10 as done by Eric Baldwin and Justin Liberto. Between the two players, they went to the payout cage 25 times and all but two of their ventures were for events that didn't have NLH in the title. Heavy-hitters Mike Leah and Anthony Zinno round out the important part of the leaderboard. Neither player added a second bracelet despite having five final tables between them to close another victory out. Zinno made up the trophy difference at The Venetian where he won the CardPlayer $5,000 event for $466,670 to wrap up his summer schedule. The race concludes on November 2 at WSOP Europe at King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. Deeb confirmed on the Poker Life Podcast he would be in attendance at it remains to be seen who from the top-10 will join him.
