  1. An exciting final table saw David Peters win World Series of Poker Online Event #25 ($7,777 NLHE Lucky 7's) and the $283,939 top prize after a decorated group of players produced a fast-paced finish. With four of the final eight already bracelet winners, the victory gave Peters his third WSOP bracelet as one of poker’s quiet greats further established his stellar reputation. Peters led the field into the final table and was the only player to have more than one million chips at that time, and it was another big name who busted first. Jason Koon was eliminated when his all-in from the sm
  2. Jason Koon started the final table of PokerGO Cup Event #6 ($25,000 NLHE) with the second shortest stack but over the course of four hours, Koon found himself on the winning side of a few dramatic hands and came through victorious for a $324,000 payday. The first hand of the final table gave Koon a much-needed boost. Chip leader John Riordan raised to 30,000 from UTG and Koon defended his big blind. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="5s"][poker card="4c"] and Koon check-called a bet of 20,000. The turn was the [poker card="9d"] and this time Koon check-called a bet of 75,000, leavi
  3. Sean Winter helped bring the U.S. Poker Open 2021 series to a close after besting the field of 42 entries in Event #12 ($50,000 NLHE) and earned his second career USPO victory and the $756,000 first-place prize. However, who would win the largest payday of the series wasn’t the only storyline taking place inside the PokerGO Studio on Tuesday. Final table short stack, Sam Soverel, started the day as the only player with the chance to catch three-time 2021 USPO winner David Peters for the overall series lead. Although Soverel hung around, giving Peters a sweat, in the end, Soverel busted and
  4. It was a super-sized week for the GGPoker Super MILLION$ in which Russian superstar and current #7-ranked online player in the world, Arsenii 'hellohellohello' Malinov took home the Super MILLION$ Week Super High Roller title and this week's massive $661,743 first-place prize. With it being the 2021 Super MILLION$ Week on GGPoker, what was normally a $10,000 buy-in for the regularly scheduled weekly high roller was bumped up to $25,500 creating a prize pool of more than $2.8 million. By Tuesday, the field of 114 runners was paired down to the final nine and, as can be counted on for this ev
  5. In the history of High Stakes Poker there are few players who have moved the needle the way that Tom Dwan has. On this week's episode of HSP, Dwan was his usual aggressive self, playing plenty of hands and when all was said and done he had in fact moved the needle this week, to an uptick of over $300,000. It didn't take long for the fireworks to start. On the first hand of the show, Jason Koon, who took Phil Ivey's seat last week, straddled to $1,600. Action folded around to Jake Daniels in the big blind and he raised to $4,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="3h"]. Koon checked his cards
  6. James Bord had a story about a bike ride. Chamath Palihapitiya had some insight on how the Houston Rockets changed basketball. And Phil Hellmuth had a rant about just how bad others play. That and a handful of six-figure pots were the highlights from this week's episode of High Stakes Poker on PokerGO. Joining Hellmuth, Bord, Palihapitiya, at the start of the episode were Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, Lazaro Hernandez, Jake Daniels, and Brandon Adams. As usual, the stakes were $400/$800 for the No Limit Hold'em cash game. As he is prone to do, Dwan decided to show some aggression early. Hernandez
  7. The Triton Super High Roller Series returned with a seven-event series this past week, offering some of the best players in the world the ability to compete at the highest stakes offered on the tournament circuit. Live from Jeju, South Korea the live-streamed action did not disappoint as every event featured some of the biggest names in poker battling for career-defining scores. Justin Bonomo Takes Down Event #1 Justin Bonomo continued to do what he does - take down big- buy-in tournaments for massive amounts of money. This time, Bonomo survived the 65-entry field of Event #1: HK$250,00
  8. The Imperial Ballroom at the Atlantis Resort & Casino in the Bahamas is full of some of the best poker players on the planet for the start of Day 2 of the PCA $100,000 Super High Roller. Of the original 56 entries, 33 players survived Day 1. With registration open through the beginning of Day 2, a number of pros who went broke in the first eight levels decided to fire another $100K bullet including Daniel Negreanu and Super High Roller defending champion Cary Katz. We decided to take a quick look around the room at some of the players who are taking part in the nosebleed tournament act
  9. Lot. Of. Action. Tuesday’s schedule in the partypoker POWERFEST was one of the most loaded yet, with two $10,300 Super High Rollers as well as ten other events in the High and High Roller tiers. When all was said and done, the day belonged to “mbtremendo”. He or she outlasted a 208-strong field full of the game’s best players to win Event #108 Super High Roller: $10,300 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event for a massive $424,112. The final table also included “Alien_Army”, who finished second for $307,840. He or she already won a title this POWERFEST, when they took down Event #082-HR: $2

Stealing the show was Pauli Ayras, who was victorious in one of the events for his second Poker Masters Online title. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] Ayras Wins Event #19 for $548,625 Less than a week ago, Ayras won Event #6 of the Poker Masters Online for $303,421.

  11. Daniel Dvoress entered the final table of the Super High Roller Bowl Bahamas with a less-than-stellar heads-up record. The Canadian poker pro had just one career live win and five runner-up finishes before Monday. He managed to avoid repeating that history by beating Wai Leong Chan heads-up to win the SHRB Bahamas and the $4,000,000 first-place prize. It took just over two hours of play for the first elimination to happen and a failed bluff played a key role. From UTG, Justin Bonomo raised to 90,000 with [poker card="tc"][poker card="9c"], Erik Seidel called from the button with [poker card
  12. Triton Poker set out to make poker history this week and they most certainly will and in more ways than one. Not only does the Triton Million’s £1,050,000 buy-in ($1,273215) make it the largest buy-in tournament in history, but with 54 players helping generate a prize pool of £54,000,000 ($65,611,361) the first place prize of £19,000,000 ($23,085,479) makes it the largest single tournament payout of all time. Million Dollar Payouts It’s not just first place that is going to find themselves flush after the Triton Million comes to an end. With an astronomical buy-in, Triton officials deci
  13. August is the time to go 'Big' or go home. The 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL and will run from August 1-13 with a 27-event schedule culminating in the return of their four featured tournaments, dubbed ‘The Big 4’.

The Big 4 Since 2015, the Sem
  14. Winning a World Series of Poker gold bracelet is widely considered by many to be poker’s ultimate achievement. For some players, it defines his or her career. For others, it’s the one prize eluding some of the game’s best. For years, Stephen Chidwick was considered the best poker player without a WSOP gold bracelet. At the 2019 WSOP, Chidwick bucked that monkey off his back like the most turbulent bull does to a rider at a rodeo when he won the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller for $1.618 million. Shawn Buchanan was another player in the "best without a bracelet conversation," but, like C
  15. [caption width="640"] Daniel Negreanu and Kevin Hart are just two players that could round out the field of the PokerCentral Super High Roller Bowl (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Just about two weeks ago, Aria poker room management was faced with a difficult decision. When registration opened for the 2017 PokerCentral Super High Roller Bowl, a total of 54 players put down a deposit to lock up their spot in the $300,000 buy-in event. Only problem was there were only 35 spots open to the public while the other 15 spots in the 50-player event were being held for invited players only. Degens
  16. Day 3 of partypoker POWERFEST included a number of well-known players picking up big scores, but it was a relatively unknown player who took down the biggest prize of the day. 'FrannersFeet' beat out 126 other players to win Event #25-SHR ($5,200 NLHE) to pick up $155,575. Finishing one spot behind him earned 'KETOandYOGA' $111,125 while Team partypoker pro Jason Koon came in third spot for $79,375. 'sims_or_sins...' beat 'ShipAndDate' heads-up to win Event #23-HR ($1,050 Six Max NLHE) for $61,805.01. 'ShipAndDate' had to settle for $40,765 and 'Thenut21' came in third place for $28,982.
  17. Sunday was a big day for the Poker Masters Online on partypoker. Three big tournaments took place and $3.76 million in prize money was awarded. The biggest Poker Masters Online winner of the day was Jason Koon, but he wasn't the only player to grab a title, as Eelis Parssinen and Linus Loeliger also claimed victories.
