  1. After 13 days of record-setting fields and one massive announcement, EPT Barcelona wrapped up on Sunday with Sweden's Simon Brandstrom taking down the largest EPT Barcelona Main Event in history. Brandstrom topped a field of 1,988 players after defeating Marton Czuczor heads-up after the two players agreed to a deal that saw each of them become millionaires. The first hand of the day lead to the first elimination. Brandstrom raised to 425,000 from cutoff, Yunye Lu called from the button and Czuczor and Diego Falcone defended their blinds. After the [poker card="jc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5c"] flop, Brandstrom checked and Lu bet 700,000. Czuczor raised to 1,975,000, Falcone and Brandstrom both folded before Lu shoved for 4,075,000. Czuczor called and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="2c"] for a flush draw while Lu tabled [poker card="kd"][poker card="jh"] for top pair. The turn was the [poker card="7s"] but the [poker card="kc"] river completed Czuczor's flush draw and Yu was eliminated in sixth place. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] The quick eliminations continued and five minutes later, Czuczor had his second victim. From the cutoff, Czuczor raised to 550,000 and Giovani Torre moved all in from the big blind for 4,200,000. Czuczor called and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"] which put him ahead of Torre's [poker card="kc"][poker card="jc"]. THe [poker card="as"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4c"] flop left Torre hoping for runner-runner. THe [poker card="8s"] turn was no help and as the [poker card="6d"] hit the river, Torre was eliminated in fifth place. Czuczor took almost a full 15 minutes off before finding yet another victim. From UTG, Czuczor raised to 550,000 and then called when Falcone moved all in for 5,100,000 from the button. Falcone showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"] while Czuczor held [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2d"] flop gave Falcone top pair but the [poker card="8c"] turn gave Czuczor a set. Falcone had no outs left and could only watch the [poker card="4s"] hit the river to complete his elimination in fourth place. Thre-handed play lasted 40 minutes before an elimination but this time Czuczor wasn't in the role of executioner. Brandstrom raised his button to 525,000 and Rui Sousa called from the big blind. The flop came [poker card="8s"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3h"] and Sousa checked. Brandstrom bet 500,000 and Sousa raised to 1,400,000. Brandstrom responded by moving all in and Sousa called off the his last 6,625,000 and then showed [poker card="th"][poker card="8d"] for top pair but Brandstrom flipped over [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]. Neither the [poker card="7h"] turn or [poker card="4d"] river were any help for Sousa and he was sent packing in third place. Heads up play began with Czuczor holding a slight chip lead over Brandstrom. The pair quickly discussed and agreed to a deal that saw both players pocket a seven-figure score. Czuczor locked up €1,253,234 and Brandstrom guaranteed €1,212,706 with €77,460 left to play for. The original first place prize was €1,659,000. While the first four eliminations took just over an hour, the heads-up battle between Czuczor and Brandstrom took on a life of its own. Each player took turns with the chip lead before Brandstrom seized it for good after three and a half hours of play before eliminating Czuczor. The Hungarian raised to 900,000 and Brandstrom moved all in. Czuczor called all in and showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="qc"] while Brandstrom showed [poker card="6c"][poker card="6h"]. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="ad"][poker card="5h"] to eliminate Czuczor and give Brandstrom his first major title. This is the second live tournament win for Brandstrom in Barcelona. In May he won the WPTDeepStacks Barcelona event for €270,000. Final Table Payouts Simon Brandstrom - €1,253,234 Marton Czuczor- €1,212,706 Rui Sousa - €607,400 Diego Falcone - €436,760 Giovani Torre - €364,660 Yunye Lu - €295,520
  2. When the 2020 World Series of Poker was forced to move online because of the global coronavirus pandemic, a number of the tournaments that WSOP officials had given a brand name over the years came with it. The Millionaire Maker, Colossus and Sunday night's event, The Marathon, were meant to give poker players a sense of familiarity with the events. Some 14 hours after it began, Nick Maimone beat out 1,437 other players to win Event #69 ($1,500 Marathon) for his first career bracelet and a little over $300,000. One of online poker's quietest superstars had a short-lived visit to the final table. Bert Stevens, better known to his fans and followers as 'GirafGanger' shoved his last 2,070,036 into the middle from the cutoff and Nikolay Motsenko called from the small blind. Stevens showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="qs"] but got bad news when Mostenko tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. The [poker card="td"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2h"] flop was made purely of bricks for Stevens. The [poker card="jc"] turn gave him some straight outs but the [poker card="5s"] completed the board an ended Stevens' run in ninth place. Another 20 minutes past before another player was eliminated and once again it was Motsenko doing the work. Action folded to Motsenko in the small blind and he raised to 400,000. Canada's Erik Lemarquand called from the big blind. The flop came [poker card="9c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3c"] and Motsenko bet 316,800 before Lemarquand clicked back to 1,008,000 an Motsenko moved all in for 8,309,831. Lemarquand called all in and showed [poker card="ts"][poker card="9s"] for top pair but Motsenko once again had a premium hand, tabling [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. Neither the [poker card="ah"] turn or [poker card="6c"] river were any help for Lemarquand and he was eliminated in eighth. Seven-handed play carried on for more than 30 minutes before one of two Brazilian players at the final table got an earlier than expected exit. Ermo Kosk raised to 420,000 from UTG and Murilo Nascimento moved all in for 1,724,680. Kosk called and showed [poker card="th"][poker card="8h"] and Nascimento tabled [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"] flop gave Nascimento middle set but left Kosk with flush and straight out. The [poker card="ac"] turn completed Broadway for Kosk and Nascimento was unable to make a full house on the [poker card="7s"] turn and the Brazilian was out in seventh place. Despite picking up that pot to move into the chip lead, Kosk didn't get to see much more action. Just 15 minutes after sending Nascimento to the rail, Kosk joined him. Down to just four big blinds, Kosk jammed from the small blind and Nick Maimone defended the big. Kosk showed [poker card="qh"][poker card="7c"] but Maimone had him in a world of hurt after showing [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="js"][poker card="5d"] flop allowed Kosk some hope with top pair but the [poker card="3s"] and [poker card="6h"] completed the board to eliminate Kosk in sixth place. The deep stacks continued to make for longer stretches between eliminations. A battle of the blinds lead to the next elimination. Sebastian Sikorski moved all in from the small blind for 4,258,614 Diego Bittar called from the big. Sikorski showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="2d"] but found his hand dominated by Bittar's [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"]. The [poker card="th"][poker card="6c"][poker card="6h"] flop only made things forse for Sikorski. Neither the [poker card="9s"] turn or [poker card="7c"] river was able to save the former #1-ranked PocketFiver from busting in fifth. Maimoine was the player in charge of the next bustout. From UTG, Bittar raised to 480,000. Maimone re-raised to 1,080,000 from the small blind before Motsenko moved all in for 3,426,101. Bittar got out of the way but Maimone called and showed [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"]. Motsenko showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="jd"]. The board ran out [poker card="tc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="8d"] to eliminate Motsenko in fourth place. Maimone was the executioner on the next elimination as well, but he had to wait more than 30 minutes. During that time he had the shortest stack before doubling through Giovani Torre. Five minutes later, Bittar folded the button and Maimone moved all in for 14,978,646 and Torre called off from the big blind. Maimone was behind with [poker card="qs"][poker card="6h"] to Torre's [poker card="kd"][poker card="9s"] but the [poker card="qc"][poker card="4d"][poker card="4s"] flop changed that. Torre could only watch as the [poker card="8h"] and [poker card="as"] completed the board to seal his third place result. Maimone had a three big blind lead when heads up play began and it took 25 minutes of heads up play for him to eliminate Bittar. On the final hand, Bittar called from the small blind and Maimone moved all in from the big. Bittar called off his last 8,514,472 and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="5d"] while Maimone tabled [poker card="ks"][poker card="8h"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"][poker card="6d"] flop put Maimone in the pole position and he stayed there through the [poker card="6s"] turn and [poker card="jd"] river to prevent Bittar from becoming the fourth Brazilian to win a WSOP bracelet this year while capturing the first of his career. Final Table Payouts Nick Maimone - $302,471.86 + WSOP Europe Package Diego Bittar - $228,211.58 Giovani Torre -$165,613.12 Nikolay Motsenko - $120,185.51 Sebastian Sikorski - $87,218.79 Ermo Kosk - $63,294.75 Murilo Nascimento - $45,933.13 Erik Lemarquand - $33,332.52 Bert Stevens - $24,190.21
