  1. Hosted by Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters, The Fives Poker Podcast runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker. On this week's episode of The Fives Poker Podcast, Lance and Donnie talk about the World Poker Tour's return to Las Vegas and the amazing run that Qing Liu is on right now and his shot at making WPT history. They also discuss the complaints aired by WPT Venetian eighth place finisher Jared Jaffee about how the final stages of the tournament were handled. Following Michael Addamo's win in the partypoker MILLIONS $100,000 Mega High Roller, the hosts try and figure what the future of live poker looks like after a year of having marquee events moved online. They wrap up the show by discussing the PokerStars Players Championship broadcasts and how they accurately reflect the energy of the live event and should be a template for how poker should be portrayed to bring in more casual viewers.

  2. No, some of the best poker players in the world were not packed into the tables at the Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas chasing down World Series of Poker Circuit rings over the last two weeks. Players in Nevada and New Jersey were, in fact, playing on WSOP.com in the Planet Hollywood Circuit events with 12 rings on the line and the list of winners includes more than a handful of familiar faces including a pair of former #1-ranked online poker players. The 12-event series had a total guarantee of $1.125 million and all 12 tournaments easily cleared their individual guarantee to push the total prize pools to $1,791,499. Jared Jaffee Opens With a Win Jared Jaffee, who won his first WSOP Circuit ring at The Bicycle Club in Los Angeles in 2017, added another ring to his collection by outlasting 416 other entries in Event #1 ($250 NL Freezeout). Along with the win, Jaffee, playing under the screen name 'darrensrabbi', earned $23,804.44. Runner-up 'DaSurrealist' earned $13,359.63 while Zach 'ThePepster5' Epstein took third for $8,161.52. Ari Engel Breaks into Double Digits Ari Engel, who held the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings for five weeks in late 2006, became just the fourth player to win 10 WSOP Circuit rings when he bested the 151-entry field in Event #3 ($500 Big PLO $500). Engel banked $16,350.13 for the win. Daniel 'Bunzer07' Jordan, who won the WSOP Circuit Online $1,000 Six Max High Roller event back in January for his first career ring, fell one spot short of grabbing his second and had to settle for a $12,244 score. Seth 'weliketoprty' Anirudh finished in third for $9,186.87. Steve Gross Grabs First Ring Engel wasn't the only former #1 PocketFiver who grabbed some hardware. Steve Gross, who had four different reigns at the top for 55 total weeks, beat 469 other runners in Event #5 ($525 NL Monster Stack) for a $40,185 score and his first career Circuit ring. Michael 'miw201x' Wang finished one spot shy of the ring and added $29,727.50 to his bankroll. Jeff 'YanCanCook' Yanchek took third for $21,925.50. Daniel Buzgon Does Double Duty Daniel Buzgon, the #9-ranked online poker in the United States, emerged from the series with two rings. His first came in Event #8 ($300 NL Knockout Freezeout) where he worked his way through 280 other entries to win $14,896.92. Two days later, he beat 261 players in Event #10 ($500 NL BIG 500 8-Max) for a $24,840.57 score. The New Jersey resident now has six career Circuit rings with the last four all coming in the online arena. Derek Sudell Ships Main Event Title Derek 'rickyguan' Sudell made his way through 721 other entries in Event #12 ($525 Main Event) only to be left going heads-up against AJ 'jnja1719' Basselini-Truisi, the winner of the Main Event in the WSOP Circuit Super Series in January. There, Basselini-Truisi beat 892 other entries to capture his first career ring. This time however, the Howell, New Jersey resident had to settle for runner-up status. Sudell eliminated him in second place and earned the Connecticut native a career-best $57,623.10 score. Basselini-Truisi walked away with $42,657. James 'muskrrr' Moore wound up in third place and earned $31,450.50. WSOP.com Planet Hollywood Circuit Winners List [table id=179 /] The next WSOP Online Circuit series is the Silver Legacy Circuit which runs March 19 - 30 and offers 12 ring events.
  3. Two players who have been members of PocketFives since 2006 nearly scooped a World Series of Poker bracelet on Wednesday in a $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max event (#58). Mike SirWattsWatson (pictured) and Mark dipthrong Herm finished second and third, respectively. --- 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. --- Jared Jaffee ultimately took down the title, defeating Watson after a series of heads-up matches determined the outcome. Watson, who calls Canada home, was appearing at his sixth career WSOP final table. In 2012, he took down the WSOP Europe Super High Roller Event for one million Euros. Herm and Watson met in a semifinal match of the Mixed-Max tournament, with Herm quickly pulling out in front. Watson, however, doubled up multiple times, including one hand in which Herm shoved with 8-6 suited and Watson called all-in with 3-3. A flop of Q-7-5 made things interesting, but running jacks gave Watson new life. Watson doubled up once more with A-7 against K-7 to take a 4:1 chip lead over Herm and the semifinal match ended with Watson's K-2 withstanding Herm's J-8 of hearts. When it came time for the championship match, Jaffee(pictured) pulled away early and kept his foot on the gas pedal. Watson doubled up after making the nut flush at one point to trim Jaffee's lead to 5:2 and then doubled up once more with A-6 against A-4 to get within 2:1. However, Watson's run, which eventually saw him get back to almost even in chips with Jaffee, ended on the 99th hand of the final match. Watson 4bet all-in before the flop with a pair of jacks and Jaffee called with A-6 of clubs. The flop of 10-8-5 kept Watson in front with an overpair, but a seven of clubs on the turn meant a flush draw and straight draw for Jaffee. Sure enough, a four hit on the river for a straight and Jaffee secured his first WSOP bracelet. Watson earned $246,000 for second place, while Herm earned $126,000 for reaching the semis. Elsewhere at the Rio in Las Vegas, the site of the annual WSOP, Philip Hui (pictured), known on PocketFives as KungPhui, took down a $3,000 Omaha High-Low Split Eight or Better tournament for $286,000. Hui earned his first bracelet in a rather dramatic fashion, according to coverage on WSOP.com: "Hui was low on chips at several points during the final table, no more so than when heads-up against Zachary Milchman when the Floridian had Hui out-chipped by about an 18:1 margin. Yet, Hui was able to reverse the tide and dominated the final half-hour of the tournament on his way to a huge celebration with fellow Circuit grinders." Hui loves the Circuit so much that he has earned four rings over the years and said winning a bracelet felt very surreal: "I had a big package, but bricked the first 25 of 30 tournaments that I played. Your mind's not right when you are coming into the last week of the series. It's unreal. I feel like I'm in a movie." Here were the final table results: 1st Place: Phillip KungPhuiHui - $286,976 2nd Place: Zachary Milchman - $177,609 3rd Place: Michael Bees - $118,036 4th Place: Ismael Bojang - $87,594 5th Place: John D'Agostino - $65,736 6th Place: David Williams - $49,817 7th Place: Matt Glantz - $38,089 8th Place: Jordan iMsoLucky0 Morgan - $29,356 9th Place: Joe Mitchell - $22,793 Finally, a $10,000 Seven Card Stud tournament (Event #61) is down to its final nine. The group, as you'd expect in a $10,000 Seven Card Stud event, is pretty beastly and includes the likes of Todd Brunson, 13-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, hole card cam inventor Henry Orenstein, and James Andy McLEOD Obst. This tournament will award $268,000 to the winner. Stay tuned to PocketFives for the latest WSOP coverage, sponsored by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada.

  4. Exactly six months ago, Ryan Quail picked up his first career live cash when he finished 30th in the WPTDeepStacks Pittsburgh Main Event for almost double his buy-in back in what was his first-ever live score. This weekend Quail returned to the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and won this version of the WPTDeepStacks Pittsburgh Main Event for $80,001. Quail started Monday's final table as the chip leader and then eliminated his final five opponents on his way to the win. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Matthew Radcliffe was on the short side of the chip counts at the start of the final table and was the first one eliminated. After a flop of [poker card="ts"][poker card="8s"][poker card="7d"] and 300,000 in the pot, Radcliffe got the last of his stack in the middle holding [poker card="9h"][poker card="8h"] against William Reilly's [poker card="qd"][poker card="qh"]. Neither the [poker card="ks"] turn or [poker card="kh"] river were any help and Radcliffe was eliminated in ninth. Jaynesh Patel was one of four players who started the day with more than a million chips, but the opening hour of play didn't go his way. Patel got his last 800,000 in the middle with [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"] after the [poker card="6c"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"] flop only to have Reilly call with [poker card="6h"][poker card="6s"] for a flopped set. The board ran out [poker card="4d"][poker card="9s"] to officially send Patel home in eighth place. Another flopped set lead to the next elimination. With a board of [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"][poker card="6h"], Mark Milburn shoved for 200,000 and Ryan Ashman called. Milbrun turned over [poker card="qh"][poker card="th"] but Ashman showed [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="9d"] turn and [poker card="7c"] were no help for Milburn and he was out in seventh. The most high-profile player at the final table became Quail's first victim of the night. Jared Jaffee, a WPT Champions Club member, was all in for 930,000 preflop with [poker card="ah"][poker card="js"] against Quail's [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="3c"][poker card="jc"][poker card="5s"] runout improved Jaffee's hand but not enough to survive the hand and he was eliminated in sixth place. Quail continued to apply pressure on his way to picking up another elimination. After a flop of [poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="3d"], Jamie Rotellini moved all in for 545,000 from the small blind and Quail called from the big blind. Rotellini showed [poker card="2d"][poker card="2c"] while Quail turned over [poker card="7c"][7s. The [poker card="qh"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river made Rotellini's fifth place elimination official. Not longer after Rotellini left, Quail sent another player home. With the board showing [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"][poker card="6c"], Stan Lee moved all in from the button and Quail called from the big blind. Quail was ahead with [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"] against Lee's club flush draw with [poker card="jc"][poker card="9c"]. The [poker card="3d"] turn was a complete blank and the [poker card="6d"] river gave Quail an unneeded full house to send Lee to the rail in fourth. Quail's run to the title claimed yet another victim before heads-up play got underway. Ryan Ashman moved all in for 1,800,000 on a [poker card="8h"][poker card="7s"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2d"] board and Quail called. Ashman held top pair with [poker card="8d"][poker card="3d"] but was dominated by Quail's [poker card="ks"][poker card="8c"]. The [poker card="ac"] river completed the board sent Ashman out in third and Quail began heads-up play with 80% of the chips in play. Despite the overwhelming lead, Quail wasn't able to shake Reilly quickly. Reilly continued to pick up doubles up to stay alive, but after 3.5 hours of play, Quail finally found a way to finish things off. Quail checked his option after Reilly completed the small blind. The flop came [poker card="9h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3c"] and both players checked. The turn was the [poker card="6h"] and Reilly checked. Quail bet 300,000 and then called Reilly's all-in check-raise. Reilly turned over [poker card="6d"][poker card="5h"] for two pair but Quail showed [poker card="7s"][poker card="4h"] for a turned straight. The [poker card="8d"] river gave Quail an even better straight and eliminated Reilly in second place. The $1,100 buy-in event drew 386 entries - up from the 316 that played in April - to create a total prize pool of $374,420. The event wrapped up as many poker players in the state are anticipating the launch of the first regulated PA online poker site in the coming weeks. Final Table Payouts Ryan Quail - $80,001 William Reilly - $53,919 Ryan Ashman - $34,665 Stan Lee - $22,917 Jamie Rotellini - $17,642 Jared Jaffee - $14,615 Mark Milburn - $12,238 Jaynesh Patel - $9,961 Matthew Radcliffe - $7,700
