  1. Many of the players grinding the Super High Roller Bowl Online on partypoker would probably have Viktor Blom in their list of most talented poker players. On Tuesday, the Swedish superstar lived up to that type of billing with a win and a runner-up finish that earned him nearly $580,000. Blom started the day off with a near-miss after falling to Dan Smith in the heads-up battle for Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller). Smith defeated the Swede to walk away with the title and $527,000 while Blom had to settle for earning $365,600. Third-place finisher Artur Martirosian earned $153,000 for his performance. Blom wasn't done though. He outlasted the 74 other entries in Event #9 ($10,300 High Roller) to win $213,750. The last player in his way, Christoph Vogelsang ended up taking home $146,250 while third-place finisher Arnaud Enselme walked away with $101,250. The day began with Luuk Gieles winning Event #7 ($10,300 High Roller) for $234,000. George Wolff fell one spot short of the win and earned $166,500. Ali Imsirovic grabbed a bronze medal and added $117,000 to his bankroll. Another three final events will crown champions on Wednesday with Events #10-#12 playing down to a winner. Event #7 $10,300 High Roller 90 Entries $900,000 Prize pool Luuk Gieles - $234,000 George Wolff - $166,500 Ali Imsirovic - $117,000 Pascal Hartmann - $81,000 Mark Radoja - $63,000 Jonathan Van Fleet - $45,000 Mikita Badziakouski - $36,000 John O'Shea - $31,500 Event #8 $25,500 Super High Roller 68 Entries $1,700,000 Prize pool Dan Smith - $527,000 Viktor Blom - $365,500 Artur Martirosian - $153,000 Simon Higgins - $153,000 Alex Foxen - $119,000 Giuseppe Iadisernia - $97,750 Orpen Kisacikoglu - $80,750 Darrell Goh - $63,750 Event #9 $10,300 High Roller 75 Entries $750,000 Prize pool Viktor Blom - $213,750 Christoph Vogelsang - $146,250 Arnaud Enselme - $101,250 George Wolff - $67,500 Kristen Bicknell - $52,500 Mark Davis - $41,250 Darrell Goh - $33,750 Dan Smith - $26,250
  2. Nominations for the second annual Global Poker Awards were announced on Friday with popular poker personality Joey Ingram leading the way with four nominations. The Global Poker Awards, slated to take place at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas on March 6, celebrates the poker industry by recognizing the game of poker's top talent both on the felt and behind the scenes. This year, awards will be handed out in 19 different categories including two that are voted on by the fans. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="BetMGM NJ"] Multiple Nods Sixteen former award winners are back in contention this year with a number of them recognized in multiple categories. Poker personality and podcast/video producer Joey Ingram picked up nominations in the People’s Choice for Poker Personality of the Year, Podcast of the Year (Poker Life Podcast), Journalist of the Year and Media Content of the Year for his extensive work investigating the Mike Postle cheating allegation story.

  3. By the time the 2019 World Series of Poker is over, the "Best Player Without a Bracelet" is going to be all new names. Three more players who have seen their names on the list in the past, pulled out a red marker on Saturday and crossed it off permanently. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver Ari Engel, Stephen Chidwick, and Luke Schwartz all won bracelets just a few hours apart on another busy Saturday at the WSOP Stephen Chidwick Ships $25K PLO High Roller for $1.6M Stephen Chidwick, one of the most well-respected players in poker, recently became a father and that life change meant he wouldn't be able to play a full WSOP schedule this summer. He showed up this week and entered his first tournament of the summer and then promptly won it for $1.6 million and the first bracelet of his career. “It’s super ironic. Usually, I play every single tournament. Usually, I play a final table, bust and then register a $1,500 Stud immediately. Just play everything," Chidwick said. "I come in here halfway through, haven’t played any of the others and then just win the first one I play. Pretty funny.” Prior to Saturday's win, Chidwick had 52 career WSOP cashes and just north of $2.2 million in WSOP earnings. He had no bracelet though. That all changed dramatically after Chidwick eliminated James Chen heads-up “It means a lot. It feels great. It’s obviously a good one to win it in," Chidwick said. "I’m in shock a little bit." Chen walked away without the win, but still ended up earning a seven-figure payday. Matthew Gonzales finished third for $699,364 representing a career-best score for each of the top three finishers. Final Table Payouts Stephen Chidwick - $1,618,417 James Chen - $1,000,253 Matthew Gonzales - $699,364 Robert Mizrachi - $497,112 Alex Epstein - $359,320 Erik Seidel - $264,186 Wasim Korkis - $197,637 Ka Kwan Lau - $150,483 Tu Dao Maintains Lead in Ladies Event with Six Left Tu Dao started Day 3 of the $1,000 Ladies Event with the chip lead and 42 players standing in her way. On Saturday, she maintained that chip lead while 36 players were sent to the cashier cage after busting out. Dao now has to outlast just five more players to claim victory. Dao bagged up 5,420,000 which puts here ahead of Jiyoung Kim by just 320,000. Nancy Matson sits third with 4,530,000. The final three players find themselves trailing by quite a bit. Lyly Vo, Lexy Gavin, and Sandrine Phan all have between 1.185 million and 1.7 million. Kathy Liebert, Ana Marquez, Jackie Glazer, Lisa Costello, and Vanessa Kade were among the 36 bustouts on Saturday. The final table begins at Noon PT. Final Table Chip Counts Tu Dao - 5,420,000 Jiyoung Kim - 5,100,000 Nancy Matson - 4,530,000 Lyly Vo - 1,700,000 Lexy Gavin - 1,430,000 Sandrine Phan - 1,185,000 Ari Engel Takes Down $2,500 NLHE for First Bracelet Ari Engel, one of the most revered players in the history of PocketFives, can now call himself a WSOP bracelet winner. Engel topped a 996-player field to win the $2,500 No Limit Hold'em event for $427,399. “It’s more crazy that Stephen Chidwick hadn’t won one before. Us huge field no-limit players, there’s no real "due". You play these, you expect to win one in a lifetime, maybe. I expect to f*** it up somewhere along the line and just blow it up," Engel said after his win. "I did that, I’m sure, a few times and I got lucky instead of losing the tournament. It’s a relief to not mess it up whenever I win a tournament because most of the time I do end up messing it up.” Engel defeated Pablo Melogno heads-up to win the bracelet. The 35-year-old thinks the win might help him in the next event he plays. Maybe. “I’m very competitive and poker’s a game of losing a lot. I lose my confidence very easily so I should be good to go for tomorrow at least,” he said. David 'Bakes' Baker picked up his fifth cash of the summer with a fifth place finish. Final Table Payouts Ari Engel - $427,399 Pablo Melogno - $264,104 Wilbern Hoffman - $186,392 Ben Keeline - $133,306 David 'Bakes' Baker - $96,632 James Hughes - $71,010 Raylene Celaya - $52,909 Stephanie Hubbard - $39,980 Josh Arieh - $30,643 Luke Schwartz Wins $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Luke Schwartz is one of the best poker players on the planet. Just ask him. On Saturday, Schwartz proved his mettle by taking down the $10,000 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw event for $273,336 and just his fifth WSOP cash. Schwartz was complimentary of the players he bested to win. “Everyone played great. Johannes – he was frustrating me so much, because I would stand pat with decent hands and he kept drawing and making it on the river. That happened so many times," Schwartz said. "Maybe the old me would have just got frustrated and tilted, but I took deep breaths and managed to see it through.” George Wolff, who held the chip lead at the start of the day, finished runner-up for $168,936. Johannes Becker, who Schwartz credited as being one of the best Triple Draw players in the world, ended up third for $116,236. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver Calvin Anderson wound up sixth. Final Table Payouts Luke Schwartz - $273,336 George Wolff - $168,936 Johannes Becker - $116,236 Mark Gregorich - $81,635 Yueqi Zhu - $58,547 Calvin Anderson - $42,898 Monster Stack Sees Lowest Turnout in Six Year History Originally intended to give players perceived value through a larger starting stack, it appears the polish on the $1,500 Monster Stack is officially worn off. For the fifth consecutive year, the Monster Stack saw a year-over-year drop in attendance after 3,607 Day 1B players pushed the total field to just 6,035 players. The original Monster Stack, in 2014, had a 7,862-player field. YEAR ENTRIES Y/Y +/- 2019 6035 -3.59% 2018 6260 -6.79% 2017 6716 -3.05% 2016 6927 -3.68% 2015 7192 -8.52% 2014 7862 -- Pennsylvania poker player James Hundt finished Day 1B with 466,600 and the chip lead. A total of 1,778 survived 1B and will be part of the Day 2 restart beginning at 11 AM PT. Some of the notables moving on to Day 2 from 1B include John Racener, Tristan Wade, Ryan Hughes, Arash Ghaneian, Taylor Paur, and Greg Raymer. Top 10 Chip Counts James Hundt - 466,600 Kapila Garner - 464,100 Rick Alvarado - 443,600 Nishant Sharma - 429,000 John Gravagna - 415,000 Julian Manolio - 405,700 Michael Jagroo - 391,000 Venkata Chinta - 364,300 Terence Clee - 362,000 Matthew Kirby - 359,000 Michael Thompson Leads $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Final 12 Michael Thompson sits atop the final 12 players heading into the last day of play in the $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo but there's a WSOP Player of the Year contender still lurking around. Thompson bagged up 923,000 after Day 2, which puts him ahead of his closest competition, Daniel Ratigan, by just 24,000. Scroll down the second shortest stack and you see Dan Zack still chasing a second bracelet and those all-important WSOP POY points. Zack currently sits 15.82 points behind current leader Upeshka De Silva but will earn no fewer than 197.44 points on Sunday. A win would give him 987.22 points and a massive lead over the rest of the field. Included among the 49 players who busted after the bubble burst on Saturday were Jeffrey Lisandro, Yuval Bronshtein, Brett Richey, Eli Elezra, Simon Mattsson, Dzmitry Urbanovich, and Shaun Deeb. Action resumes Sunday at 2 PM PT. Final 12 Chip Counts Michael Thompson - 923,000 Daniel Ratigan - 899,000 Philip Long - 813,000 Denis Strebkob - 709,000 Yuri Dzivielevski - 594,000 Gerard Rechnitzer - 496,000 Andrey Zaichenko - 424,000 Michael Coombs - 387,000 Alex Livingston - 254,000 Nickolai Orlov - 230,000 Dan Zack - 214,000 Carlos Rodriguez - 103,000 Yi Li On Top of $10K Pot Limit Omaha Championship Day 1 Don't look now, but there's a chance that the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship could crack 500 entries for the first time in history. Day 1 saw 494 players enter and registration is open until the start of Day 2. Yi Li finished the 10 levels of play Saturday with 572,000 and was the only player to end with more than 500,000. Mohsin Virani ended with the second biggest stack at 401,000. Ben Lamb, who won this event in 2011 by beating 360 players, finished with 343,700. Longtime PocketFiver Laszlo 'omaha4rollz' Bujtas finished with a top 10 stack. Other notables among the 253 players moving on to Day 2 include Kahle Burns, Ryan Laplante, Bryce Yockey, Phil Galfond, Chance Kornuth, Chris Hunichen, Brian Hastings, and Daniel Negreanu. Top 10 Chip Counts Yi Li - 572,000 Mohsin Virani - 401,000 Timothy Batow - 358,700 Ben Lamb - 343,700 Andrew Loomis - 329,300 Antonios Rouggeris - 310,300 Alexey Makarov - 300,300 Laszlo Bujtas - 297,900 Frank Koopmann - 294,900 Grzegorz Derkowski - 288,100
  4. The top of the Spanish all-time money list on The Hendon Mob includes some easily recognizable names. Adrian Mateos, Carlos Mortensen, Sergio Aido, and 2019 PokerStars Players Championship winner Ramon Colillas occupy the top four positions, but the name now sitting in fifth is rising quickly. Sergi Reixach now has $5,027,636 in lifetime earnings after taking down the Poker Masters $25,000 No Limit Hold'em event on Tuesday for $369,000. He now sits just $184,000 behind Colillas. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] A battle of the blinds played a huge part in the first elimination of the day. Action folded to Reixach in the small blind and he called with [poker card="jd"][poker card="2c"]. Sean Winter checked with [poker card="5h"][poker card="3h"]. After the [poker card="tc"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2d"] flop, Reixach check-called Winter's bet of 40,000. After the [poker card="8s"] turn, Reixach check-called again, this time after Winter bet 80,000. The [poker card="8d"] river saw Reixach check for a third time with Winter betting 190,000, leaving himself just 5,000 behind, and Reixach tank-calling with bottom pair to leave Winter short. Winter spent the next 10 hands turning that 5,000 into 210,000 before getting into a sticky spot. From UTG, Winter raised to 160,000 with [poker card="qs"][poker card="jh"], Andras Nemeth moved all-in from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"] and Reixach called from the big blind with [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"] and tabled his hand prematurely. Winter was left with a decision for his final 50,000. After using two time banks, Sam Soverel called. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="9h"][poker card="7c"] to eliminate Soverel in sixth place and Nemeth in fifth. After George Wolff and Orpen Kisacikoglu folded, Soverel moved all-in from the small blind for 390,000 with [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"] and Reixach called with [poker card="kc"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="th"][poker card="3d"] flop gave both players a pair but Soverel wasn't able to move ahead through the [poker card="6s"] turn or [poker card="ac"] river and was eliminated in fourth place. Along with the $102,500 payout, Soverel added 120 points towards the race for the Purple Jacket to pass Chance Kornuth and take over the lead. With Wolff holding the chip lead, Reixach and Kisacikoglu got into an all-in preflop situation that sent the tournament into heads-up play. Reixach called from the button with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"], Wolff folded his small blind before Kisacikoglu moved all-in for 1,280,000 from the big blind with [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]and Reixach called. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="8c"][poker card="2s"] flop turned the tables on Kisacikoglu and he was unable to get back in front after the [poker card="as"] turn or [poker card="8h"] river and was sent home in third. That hand gave Reixach a small lead over Wolff at the start of heads-up play. The pair played for just 20 minutes before Reixach ended the tournament. Wolff called from the small blind with [poker card="6h"][poker card="4h"] and Reixach raised to 280,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] and Wolff called. After the [poker card="qh"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6c"] flop, Reixach bet 160,000 and Wolff moved all in for 1,390,000 and Reixach called. The turn was the [poker card="5s"] and the [poker card="th"] river made Wolff's second place elimination official. Three of Reixach's last four cashes were wins. He previously won the European Poker Tour Barcelona €100,000 Super High Roller in August and the British Poker Open £25,000 event in September. Final Table Payouts Sergi Reixach - $369,000 George Wolff - $246,000 Orpen Kisacikoglu - $164,000 Sam Soverel - $102,500 Andras Nemeth - $82,000 Sean Winter - $61,500 Purple Jacket Standings Sam Soverel - 690 Chance Kornuth - 630 George Wolff - 420 Sean Winter - 330 Kahle Burns - 330 Kristen Bicknell - 300 Sergi Reixach - 300 Isaac Baron - 300 Ryan Laplante - 300 Julien Martini - 300
  5. Jared Bleznick has had a few close calls in live tournament play over the years, most notably at the World Series of Poker where he had a runner-up finish in 2013 and three third places finishes, one in 2017 and two this past summer. On Friday night in Las Vegas, Bleznick beat a talented group of players at the final table to win the Poker Masters $10,000 8-Game Mix event for the first live win of his career. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] It didn't take long to lose a player. The first elimination coming during a hand of Deuce to Seven Triple Draw just four minutes in. Brandon Adams raised to 100,000 with [poker card="8s"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2s"], George Wolff re-raised to 150,000 with [poker card="9h"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2d"], Nick Schulman called from the big blind with [poker card="td"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2c"] and Adams called to close the betting. Schulman picked up the [poker card="6d"], Adams drew the [poker card="8h"], and Wolff stood pat. Adams checked, Wolff bet 50,000, Schulman and Adams both called. Schulman drew the [poker card="qc"], Adams picked up the [poker card="7s"] and Wolff stayed pat. Action checked to Wolff and he bet his last 60,000. Schulman and Adams both called again. Schulman picked up the [poker card="8d"], Adams drew the [poker card="7c"] and Wolff stood pat a final time. Schulman bet and Adams folded, and Wolff was eliminated when his 9-6 was bested by Schulman's 8-5. Ten minutes later, Adams ended up on the outside as well. With Adams down to just 65,000 and paying 50,000 for the big blind, action folded to Schulman and he raised to 100,000 with [poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"][poker card="7c"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2s"] and Adams called with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4h"]. Schulman drew the [poker card="5d"] and Adams drew the [poker card="9s"] and the [poker card="6s"]. Schulman stood pat over the next two draws and Adams was unable to improve to a hand better than Schulman's 8-7 and was eliminated in sixth. Triple Draw was the game in play for another bustout just eight minutes after Adams left. Action folded to Jake Abdalla in the small blind and he raised all-in to 80,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3d"] and Mike Gorodinsky called from the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6c"]. Through the three draws, Gorodinsky improved to a 7-6 and Abdalla was unable to avoid a paired hand and was eliminated in fifth. Bleznick picked up his first victim of the final table in a hand of No Limit Hold'em. Gorodisnky moved all-in for 415,000 with [poker card="9c"][poker card="7c"] and Bleznick took some time to think through his options before calling with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9s"]. The board ran out [poker card="tc"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="3h"] to leave Bleznick in front and eliminate Gorodinsky in fourth place. The game had rotated to Seven Card Stud Eight or Better when Schulman attempted to make a stand. Schulman got the last of his 370,000 chips in the middle with [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"][poker card="7h"][poker card="4d"] against Bleznick's [poker card="8s"][poker card="7d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"]. Bleznick improved to two pair to beat Schulman's pair of kings and eliminate him in third. Bleznick and Cary Katz played heads-up for 20 minutes before they clashed in a hand of Pot Limit Omaha. With the board showing [poker card="ts"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="ad"], Bleznick checked and Katz bet 450,000. Bleznick re-raised to put Katz all-in, Katz called and showed [poker card="th"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4c"] which put him behind Bleznick's [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"][poker card="td"][poker card="2d"]. The river was the [poker card="qs"] to eliminate Katz and give Bleznick the first live tournament win of his career. Final Table Payouts Jared Bleznick - $153,000 Cary Katz - $99,000 Nick Schulman- $67,500 Mike Gorodinsky - $45,000 Jake Abdalla - $36,000 Brandon Adams - $27,000 George Wolff - $22,500 Purple Jacket Standings Chance Kornuth - 420 Isaac Baron - 300 Ryan Laplante - 300 Jared Bleznick - 300 Jonathan Depa - 300 Alex Foxen - 270 Thai Ha - 210 Cary Katz - 210 Ralph Wong - 150 Sam Soverel - 150
  6. There are now seven 2019 Poker Masters events in the books and seven different players have won titles. Sam Soverel became the seventh different player to win a Poker Masters title on Monday when he beat Sean Winter heads-up to win the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. Soverel is now a realistic contender for the Purple Jacket with just three events remaining on the schedule. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Down to just 16 big blinds, Anthony Zinno raised to 90,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"][poker card="ts"][poker card="7s"] and Soverel called from the big blind with [poker card="jd"][poker card="tc"][poker card="7c"][poker card="6h"].
