  1. Anthony Zinno won his second bracelet of the live 2021 World Series of Poker, and in doing so captured his fourth lifetime bracelet, taking the lead in the WSOP Player of the Year race in the process. Zinno’s latest triumph came in Event #27 ($1,500 H.O.R.S.E.), where Zinno beat Randy Ohel heads-up to claim the $160,636 top prize. Zinno Becomes First Two-Time Winner at the Live 2021 WSOP Event #27 was down to just 18 players still in seats as the final day of action began, with Zinno leading the way by some distance. The now four-time WSOP bracelet winner went wire-to-wire as the early stages of the event saw players such as Joe McKeehen, Ari Engel, and Brock Parker all bust before the final 10 players remained. When the final table reached six players, Zinno had more than double his nearest challenger’s chips, with Ohel clinging on to the chip leader’s coattails. That changed, however, as Ohel overtook Zinno at the top as both he and the overnight chip leader continued to gather chips at the other four players’ expense. The first player to leave was Paul Holder as he busted to Ohel in a Seven Card Stud hand where Ohel’s two-pair won the pot and sent Holder home with a prize of $26,523. Almost immediately, the field was down to four as Darren Kennedy bought it in fifth for $35,957 in a hand of Stud Hi/Lo where Christopher Adams won with kings-up to leap up the leaderboard. Four became three almost as quickly when Kao Saechao left in third place for $49,597 with a Limit Hold’em hand going Ohel’s way. Saechao moved all-in with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="8s"] on a flop of [poker card="Jc"][poker card="7c"][poker card="3c"], but Saechao’s audacious bluff couldn’t have had worse timing, Ohel’s flopped flush with [poker card="8c"][poker card="5c"] meaning his opponent was drawing dead. With three players left, the chips were remarkably even and as the trio of players went to the dinner break, Zinno had a marginal lead with 5.5 million chips playing against Ohel’s 4.5 million and Adams’ 4.3m. That all changed a short while after their return as Adams lost his stack to Zinno in a Seven Card Stud hand that vaulted the tournament favorite up to 9.5 million and sent Adams home in third for $69,585. Heads-up, Zinno’s advantage of almost 2:1 was trimmed to just a million chips between the pair as Ohel recovered to 7 million with Zinno sitting on 8 million. Zinno has enjoyed a phenomenal week at the World Series, however, and grew a big lead, building his edge to 4:1 before the final hand. In a hand of Razz, Zinno clinched victory and condemned Ohel to a runner-up result worth $99,276. Zinno’s victory for his fourth WSOP bracelet of his incredible career and second in one week saw the popular poker professional scoop the overall lead in the WSOP Player of the Year race and his latest major victory for the $160,636 top prize. WSOP 2021 Event #27 $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. Final Table Results: Anthony Zinno - $160,636 Randy Ohel - $99,276 Christopher Adams - $69,585 Kao Saechao - $49,597 Darren Kennedy - $35,957 Paul Holder - $26,523 Curtis Phelps - $19,911 Max Pescatori - $11,845 Michael Rosenberg - $11,845 Scott Ball Scores $5K Six-Max Title Event #25 saw just six players return to action to battle for the bracelet, with Scott Ball outlasting some legendary luminaries to capture the first bracelet of his career in an emotional night at the Rio. With six players left, it didn’t take long for the first player to bust as John Racener moved all-in with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qh"]. Racener might have hoped he would live up to his name and be in a race, but Galen Hall made the call with [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kc"] and won through on the board of [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9d"][poker card="Kh"][poker card="8h"][poker card="As"] which gave him a full house by the river. Next to bust was Bin Weng, who left the table after an extended period without any eliminations. Weng moved all-in for 17 big blinds with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Qd"] and was called by Hall with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Th"]. The flop of [poker card="Ac"][poker card="9h"][poker card="4h"] put Hall in a commanding position and on the [poker card="7s"] turn ended Weng’s faint hopes of winning through with the [poker card="Jh"] confirming his exit for $113,775 in fifth place. With four players remaining, Hall and Ball were both chipping up at the other two players’ expense, so it was no surprise when overnight leader Eric Tsai left in fourth place for $161,756. Tsai had a premium exit hand, however, pushing all-in with [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Qh"] and being called by Ball with [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Kh"]. Covered in both suits, the board of [poker card="Jd"][poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="8h"][poker card="3s"] ended Tsai’s event and made Ball the chip leader at a vital time. The next session of play saw each of the three remaining pros grab the advantage but eventually ended with Jonathan Jaffe on the rail in third place for $234,781. Jaffe shoved for over 20 big blinds with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Ts"] and Hall made the call with [poker card="8h"][poker card="8d"]. The ‘snowmen’ held firm through the [poker card="8c"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="4s"] board and sent Hall into heads-up with a 3:2 chip lead. Once heads-up was reached, legendary poker tweeter ‘Kevmath’ wondered if it was the first time such similar-sounding players had reached the final battle for a bracelet. https://twitter.com/Kevmath/status/1449263222779891712 The action began with Hall increasing his lead, but Ball took over the lead with a series of small wins before a straight flush gave him double his opponent’s chips. That was roughly where the chips lay when Hall checked to the [poker card="Jd"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6d"] flop with [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Td"] and three-bet all-in, with Ball calling with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="2d"] for a better flush draw. The [poker card="4d"] turn ended the event, with the insignificant [poker card="Th"] on the river leading to the two men sharing a moment of congratulations. Ball, emotional after his first-ever WSOP bracelet win was embraced by Anthony Zinno who had arrived to watch the last hand play out and Ball told his fellow player that the feeling was ‘the greatest moment ever’ as he posed with the gold bracelet that symbolized an epic achievement and the culmination of years work which came to a thrilling conclusion in the Thunderdome on Friday night. WSOP 2021 Event #25 $5,000 NLHE Six-Max Final Table Results: Scott Ball - $562,667 Galen Hall - $347,757 Jonathan Jaffe - $234,781 Eric Tsai - $161,756 Bin Weng - $113,775 John Racener - $81,736 Weisman Out To Huge Lead In $1K PLO Dylan Weisman takes a big chip lead into Day 2 of Event #28 ($1,000 Pot Limit Omaha), piling up a stack of 9,435,000 as just five players remain in the hunt for a bracelet. Alexander Yen is Weisman’s closest challenger, with just over 5.5 million chips, and with Tim Vanloo (4.5m), Ran Niv (1m), and Craig Chait (880,000) all making the final too, Weisman looks in control of the final day. Each of the remaining players have never won a WSOP bracelet before, with the longest-lasting former champion being Michael Perrone, who won already this Series and busted in 12th place for $8,598. WSOP 2021 Event #28 $1,000 PLO Eight-Max Final Table Chipcounts: Dylan Weisman - 9,435,000 Alexander Yen - 5,530,000 Tim Vanloo - 4,545,000 Ran Niv - 1,000,000 Craig Chait - 880,000 Chance Kornuth Chip Leader At Short Deck Final Table With just six players remaining in Event #29, the $10,000-entry Short Deck event, two-time WSOP bracelet winner Chance Kornuth has the lead with 1,266,000 chips entering the final day. With Chad Campbell (1,073,000) Kornuth’s closest challenger, there is only one other bracelet winner at the final table, with Joao Vieira (300,000) that man. Elsewhere, Dan Shak (425,000) will be hoping to win his first-ever bracelet, as with Moshe Gabay (663,000) and short-stacked Thomas Kysar (234,000). WSOP 2021 Event #29 $10,000 Short Deck NLHE Final Table Chipcounts: Chance Kornuth - 1,266,000 Chad Campbell - 1,073,000 Moshe Gabay - 663,000 Dan Shak - 425,000 Joao Vieira - 300,000 Thomas Kysar - 234,000 Moorman, ElkY Make Monster Day 2 The first flight, Day 1a, of the $1,500-entry Monster Stack saw 2,356 entries whittled down to just over 500 players with James Romero the chip leader after bagging up 620,000 overnight. Plenty of huge names took to the felt on Day 1a, choosing to play it ahead of the traditionally busier Day 1b, with stars such as Chris Moorman (229,000), a former world champion in Qui Nguyen (220,000) as well as GGPoker ambassador Bertrand Grospellier (64,000) all making the Day 2 cut. Anton Wigg certainly enjoyed his time at the felt during the event, as did everyone else at his table. https://twitter.com/Anton_Wigg/status/1449174603994177540 Although many made the Day 2 seat draw, plenty of others fell on the opening day of the event, with Barry Shulman, Niall Farrell and Martin Jacobson all hitting the rail. WSOP 2021 Event #30 Monster Stack Top 10 Chipcounts: James Romero - 620,000 Jeremy Shockett - 576,500 Brendan Shiller - 574,000 Greg Buonocore - 534,000 Andros Ioakimides - 497,500 Jason Hewlett - 485,500 Beriz Turnadzic - 457,500 Jason Riesenberg - 433,000 James Cook - 423,500 Tony Bracy - 415,000 Ali Imsirovic Out In Front In $1,500 2-7 Lowball In the final event of the day, it was the opening levels of Event #31, the $1,500 2-7 Lowball Draw. After 272 total entries, just 84 players reached Day 2, with Ali Imsirovic chief amongst them on 257,300 chips. Justin Lapka (206,700) and Jeremy Ausmus (158,600) were Imsirovic’s nearest challengers, with players such as Chris Vitch (157,300), David Funkhouser (147,100), and Andrew Donabedian (138,000), each of whom have enjoyed a solid World Series so far all bagged well above the average. While several big names survived, plenty more busted, with Daniel Ospina, Eli Elezra, Erik Seidel, Shaun Deeb, and Benny Glaser joined by Mike Matusow on the rail. Day 2 will see the action play down to the final table where yet another mixed game bracelet will be awarded to the winner, along with the top prize of $84,851. WSOP 2021 Event #31 $1,500 2-7 Lowball Draw Top 10 chip counts: Ali Imsirovic - 257,300 Justin Lapka - 206,700 Jeremy Ausmus 158,600 Chris Vitch 157,300 Matt Vengrin 152,300 Joshua Faris 148,800 David Funkhouser 147,100 Melanie Weisner 138,800 Andrew Donabedian 138,000 Koray Aldemir 137,800 Finally, a couple of extra days have been added to the WSOP Main Event, leading many to either celebrate or commiserate depending on when they were planning to play. https://twitter.com/Barry_Carter/status/1449269157548249090
  2. Jeremy Ausmus won the second WSOP title of his career, first of the series, as he defeated the final four opponents in Event #3 to win the $1,000-entry COVID-19 Relief Charity Event. With just five players returning to action on Day 2 of the event and the 2021 World Series of Poker, Ausmus overcame a chip deficit heads-up to overnight leader Jesse Lonis to claim his maiden bracelet and the $48,681 top prize. Ausmus Overcomes Lonis, Takes First Title of Autumn It took no time at all for five players to become four as Lonis busted Steve Gross in fifth place for $10,854 when Gross’ eight-four was crushed by queen-five when the chip leader made a Broadway straight on the river. Soon after, Asher Coniff was all-in with ace-six and Lonis was the caller again, this time with pocket sixes. The small pocket pair held to send play to three-handed and Coniff to the rail for $14,919. Lonis was running over the field, and that didn’t stop with the elimination of Mitchell Halverson in third place for $20,960. Halverson was all-in with the best hand, holding [poker card="Js"][poker card="Jh"]. Lonis called with [poker card="3s"][poker card="3h"] and would need a lot of help on the board. The flop was a safe [poker card="9s"][poker card="8c"][poker card="5s"] for Halverson, but the [poker card="3d"] turn spelt disaster and the [poker card="2s"] river didn’t save him. Heads-up saw Lonis go into the duel with a 3:1 chip lead, but Ausmus quickly doubled himself level when his pocket tens held against Lonis’ [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Jd"]. The final hand saw Ausmus all-in with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="9c"] against Lonis’ [poker card="Kh"][poker card="9h"] and when the board ran out [poker card="Js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2s"][poker card="5d"], Ausmus won the WSOP bracelet and $48,681. Event #3 $1,000 COVID-19 Relief Charity Event Final Table Results: Jeremy Ausmus - $48,681 Jesse Lonis - $30,086 Mitchell Halverson - $20,960 Asher Conniff - $14,919 Steve Gross - $10,854 Benny Glaser Leads $25K H.O.R.S.E. The biggest event of the day, in terms of buy-in, the $25,000 H.O.R.S.E., saw a total of 78 players as registration closed with the start of play on Day 2 of the three-day event. British mixed game specialist Benny Glaser dominated much of the day, busting players throughout vital stages of the tournament. While others, such as Stephen Chidwick, were shot down outside the 12 money places. Mike Matusow was another player who at one point looked very strong, only for two hands against Philip Sternheimer and Jesse Klein to leave ‘The Mouth’ on the rail. Cary Katz was the first player to sneak into the money, with his 12th place finish worth $42,162 after Yuval Bronshtein was the bubble boy in unlucky 13th place for no return on his investment. Daniel Negreanu (10th for $46,002) and Roland Israelashvili (11th for $46,002) were both busted on the final hand of the day, with Glaser the beneficiary as his two pair aces and tens beat both Israelashvili and Negreanu’s weaker two pair hands. When play ended, some very big names were still in the hunt with just nine players remaining. Chip leader at the end of Day 2 was Glaser but plenty of big names survived, such as Jesse Klein, David Benyamine, Phil Hellmuth, and Day 1 chip leader Chad Eveslage all making the cut. WSOP 2021 Event #2 $25,000 H.O.R.S.E. Final Table Chipcounts: Benny Glaser - 2,590,000 Jesse Klein - 1,800,000 Chad Eveslage - 1,695,000 David Benyamine - 1,680,000 Phil Hellmuth - 1,640,000 Philop Sternheimer - 865,000 Ben Yu - 830,000 Matt Glantz - 410,000 DJ Buckley - 160,000 Barnett's A Bracelet Winner The first event on the schedule was Event #1, the $500 Casino Employees Event and that saw a dramatic conclusion crown Caesars Palace employee Jimmy Barnett as the winner. In an event where 419 players created a prize pool of $175,980, Barnett went into a heads-up battle against Jack Behrens with more than double his opponent’s chips and sealed the deal when his flopped flush held against Behrens’ middle pair when the chips went into the middle. Event #1 $500 Casino Employees Event Final Table Results: Jimmy Barnett - $39,013 Jack Behrens - $24,112 Danny Chang - $16,540 Leo Abbe - $11,587 Bryan Garret - $8,294 Bobby Schmidt - $6,069 Chris Minton - $4,542 Rick Cuevas - $3,478 Ronald Baltazar - $2,727 Justin Steinman - $2,191 The Reunion Gets Underway One of the biggest events of the series to look forward to for many recreational players was The Reunion, with a $500 buy-in and massive $5 million guarantee. Day 1a saw an incredible 2,649 players take to the felt in pursuit of glory, with many players simply happy to be at the felt after so long away from the action. For one player, the emotion of cashing in a WSOP event for the first time was too much to take in this heartwarming video captured by Kenna James and posted on Twitter. https://twitter.com/Kenna_James/status/1444163921712017414 It wasn’t only players comparatively new to success who were happy. Even with some long waits at registration desks, players who have seen it such as Mike Gorodinsky advocated patience and good humor as he praised the staff at the Rio who are making it so much easier for everyone. https://twitter.com/gordoMG/status/1444032253026127872 READ: 10 Do’s And Don’ts For World Series of Poker First-Timers At the end of Day 1a in The Reunion, it was Dave Alfa who totaled the biggest stack, with a massive 3,100,000 chips going into his bag. A slew of great players trail in his wake, however, with Konstantinos Gennaios (2,650,000), Ryan Leng (2,400,000), Joey Weissman (2,270,000) Ryan Laplante (1,700,000), and Cate Hall (1,500,000) all bagging up at the close of play. Others weren’t so lucky, with former WSOP Main Event legend Matt Affleck, James Romero, and Amir Levahot all cashed but failed to make Day 2. WSOP 2021 Event #4 $500 The Reunion Top 10 Chipcounts: Dave Alfa - 3,100,000 Kostantinos Gennaios - 2,650,000 Ryan Leng - 2,400,000 Joey Weissman - 2,270,000 Greg Armand - 1,890,000 Ryan Laplante - 1,700,000 David Danlag - 1,510,000 Kenna James - 1,500,000 Cate Hall - 1,500,000 Walter Atwood - 1,400,000 Heimiller, Mizrachi In Omaha 8 Top 5 A strong field of 607 played Day 1 of Event #5, the $1,500-entry Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, with players such as Robert Mizrachi (177,000), JJ Liu (160,500), and Ari Engel (89,500) all thriving on the opening day of the three-day event. At the close of play, Christopher Stephen had the chip lead with a massive 206,500 chips, trailed by players of the caliber of Max Pescatori (37,500), Dan Zack (123,500), and Ian O’Hara (57,000) all surviving the day. WSOP 2021 Event #5 $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Top 10 Chipcounts: Christopher Stephen - 206,500 Dan Heimiller - 177,000 Robert Mizrachi - 173,500 JJ Liu - 160,500 Anatoliy Zyrin - 143,000 Hernan Salazar - 141,000 Allyn Shulman - 134,500 Dan Zack - 123,500 Gary Kosakowski - 120,000 Frankie O'Dell - 112,500
  3. There was a new face in the PokerGO studio for 2021 Poker Masters Event #9 ($25,000 Pot Limit Omaha) and that was California-based entrepreneur Miles Rampel. Rampel, who decided to made his Poker Masters debut in a $25K PLO event, walked away with what was, reportedly, his first-ever tournament cash of $365,500. As told to PokerGO, Rampel, who does play cash games, started playing PLO this year but had never bought into any tournament for more than $100. When his buddies brought him out to Las Vegas he thought “You know what, I’ll take a shot.” And what a shot it was, besting some of the game’s top high rollers and making his first Hendon Mob entry a victory at the Poker Masters. "It hasn't hit me yet, but I feel great, I feel great," Rampel told PokerGO after the win. Five-handed play lasted through the first break, nearly an hour forty-five minutes into the final table. At 20,000/40,000 (40,000 bb ante) Jeremy Ausmus, with 10 bigs, opened from the button to 140,000 holding [poker card="as"][poker card="qs"][poker card="jd"][poker card="7s"]. In the big blind, Rampel looked down at [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"][poker card="8d"][poker card="2d"]. Rampel, who had assumed the chip lead, quickly three-bet to 440,000. Ausmus took some time, and decided to call, leaving himself with just 15,000 behind. The flop came [poker card="6d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2d"] giving Rampel bottom pair and missing Ausmus entirely. Rampel checked it over to Ausmus who checked back. The turn was the [poker card="4d"] giving Rample diamond flush outs. He led out enough to cover Ausmus’ final few chips. Ausmus took one more look at his hand before tossing them in. The [poker card="8s"] river was no help to Ausmus who tapped the table and went to collect his $86,000 for fifth place. It didn’t take long before another player hit the rail. Ten minutes later, Ben Lamb found himself with just 10 big blinds when he opened from the button to 140,000 holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"][poker card="8h"][poker card="3c"]. From the small blind, Rampel made the call with his [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2h"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"] flop gave Lamb a wrap and, once again, brought a pair of deuces for Rampel. Rampel checked it over to Lamb who moved the rest of his 290,000 stack all-in. It wasn’t enough to take Rampel off his hand, and the chip leader made the call. Although technically behind in the hand, with 17 outs twice Lamb was the statistical favorite to win. That changed when the [poker card="qh"] hit, nothing changed except Rampel’s chance of fading Lamb’s outs. He did just that on the [poker card="9d"] river, letting Rampel’s pair of twos hold and sending Lamb out in fourth place for $118,250. The final three players grinded for roughly another hour, passing chips back and forth. Lou Garza, who started the day with the chip lead, took it back, but Rampel stayed close. Sean Winter found his stack dwindling, unable to pick up the key hand that would allow him to get back in the thick of it. His time finally came at the 30,000/60,000 (60,000 bb ante) level. After taking a number of hits to his already short stack, Winter was sitting on just over two big blinds. He raised to 120,000 from the button holding [poker card="qd"][poker card="ts"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8h"] and was called by Garza in the small blind with his [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="8c"] and Rampel in the big blind holding [poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4c"]. The [poker card="8d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="4s"] gave Rampel trip fours, a pair and a flush draw for Winter, and a pair for Garza. It was checked to Winter on the button and he tossed in his final 20,000. Both Garza and Rampel called. The turn was the [poker card="5h"] improving Rampel to a full house and leaving both other players drawing dead to the [poker card="9c"] river. Winter walked with $161,250 for third place. The start of head-up play had Garza holding a slim lead over Rampel, both with more than 40 big blinds. It didn’t take long for Rampel to take the chip lead away from Garza once again, this time he didn’t give it back. He extended his lead to a roughly five-to-one advantage when the final hand went down. Blinds were up to 40,000/80,000 (80,000 bb ante) when Garza raised it up to 240,000 holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7s"]. Rampel made the call from the big blind with his [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2s"][poker card="2h"]. The flop came [poker card="jh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"] giving Garza the nut flush draw as well as a straight draw while Rampel hit top pair. Rampel checked it over to Garza who bet full pot, only to be shoved on by Rampel. Garza stuck the rest of his chips in the middle as a favorite. The [poker card="4d"] came on the turn and Rampel needed to once again fade a multitude of outs, this time to win the tournament. And again, he did that when the [poker card="qd"] completed the board. In his third straight final table, Garza again falls just short of his first Poker Masters victory, this time as the runner-up for $236,500. After Garza made his exit, Rampel was mobbed by a few friends on set as they celebrated his victory and $365,500 first-place payday. 2021 Poker Masters Event #9 Final Table Results Miles Rampel - $365,500 Lou Garza - $236,500 Sean Winter - $161,250 Ben Lamb - $118,250 Jeremy Ausmus - $86,000
  4. The 2021 Poker Masters schedule may be heavy on the No Limit Hold’em, but on Monday the schedule took a break from the standard fare to allow some of the high stakes mixed game players to enjoy some of the action. It was Maxx Coleman who enjoyed it the most, taking down Event #6 ($10,000 8-Game) to the tune of $120,000. In addition to No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, the two most popular poker variants, the 8-Game Mixed rotation included Limit Hold’em, Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud Eight or Better, 2-7 Triple Draw, Omaha Eight and Razz. The event drew 30 entries but only five who returned on Day 2 made the money. The first elimination took place during Pot Limit Omaha when Jeremy Ausmus, who had started the day as the short stack, found himself with just 35,000 in chips. With the blinds at 10,000/20,000 (20,000 bb ante), Ausmus stuck his stack in holding [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"][poker card="td"][poker card="9d"]. Coleman in the big blind committed the few chips necessary for a call with his [poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="5c"]. The flop came [poker card="7s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2d"] keeping Coleman’s pair of nines in the lead but leaving outs for Ausmus. The [poker card="2c"] turn changed nothing and when the [poker card="jh"] completed the board Ausmus was out in fifth for $21,000. Playing Omaha 8 with blinds at 25,000/50,000 a short-stacked Erik Sagstrom raised to 100,000 holding [poker card="kd"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3s"]. Stephen Chidwick, also very short but covering Sagstrom, made the call holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"][poker card="ts"][poker card="5c"]. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2h"] giving Chidwick top pair on the high and a wheel draw for the low while Sagstrom had a wrap straight draw plus possible lows as well. Chidwick checked and Sagstrom bet. Chidwick raised and Sagstrom called. The [poker card="qh"] came on the turn, improving Chidwick’s high hand to trips and he bet again (100,000) and Sagstrom put the rest of his chips in the middle needing help on the river. It didn’t come as the [poker card="7s"] hit the river, allowing Chidwick to scoop the pot and ending Sagstrom’s run in fourth for $33,000. Even after the elimination, Chidwick was still short-stacked when No Limit Hold’em came around. With the blinds at 15,000/25,000 (25,000 ante) Chidwick moved all-in from the button holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"]. He ran into Coleman who made the call in the small blind with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"]. The flop came [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"][poker card="5d"] leaving the 2018 U.S. Poker Open champion drawing thin. The [poker card="7c"] on the turn left Chidwick drawing dead to the [poker card="9c"] river. Chidwick collected his belongings and headed to the cage to collect his $48,000 third-place prize. Coleman and Chad Eveslage battle across the 8-Game landscape for the better part of an hour-and-a-half with Coleman eventually assuming a commanding chip lead. He sealed the tournament playing a hand of Razz. The game where the lowest hand wins determined the player who would take home the biggest payday. With the blinds at 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante) Eveslage found himself all-in with one card to come holding [poker card="jh"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3c"] while Coleman held the slightly better [poker card="qc"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8c"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2h"][poker card="ac"]. Eveslage’s needed some help but he didn’t get it when the [poker card="qs"] came on seventh street and Coleman’s final card - the [poker card="8h"] - was irrelevant. Eveslage said “I don’t want to go play No Limit now” as he finished in second place for $78,000. Maxx Coleman is the Poker Masters 8-Game champion and earned $120,000 Poker Masters Event #6 Final Table Results Maxx Coleman - $120,000 Chad Eveslage - $78,000 Stephen Chidwick - $48,000 Erik Sagstrom - $33,000 Jeremy Ausmus - $21,000
  5. Sean Perry was never really in any danger of elimination during the final table of the 2021 Poker Masters Event #2 ($10,000 No Limit Hold’em). He started the day with the chip lead, held on to it by taking out four of his final five opponents, and, in under three hours, walked out of the PokerGO studio with $206,400 for the win. The tournament was slightly larger than Event #1, as 86-entries created an $860,000 prize pool. For Perry, the victory, plus his eighth-place finish in the first event for $32,800, has made him the early points leader for the Purple Jacket something he said, “would mean the world to me.” Just six players returned to the PokerGO studio to battle for the Event #2 title, including John Riordan, fresh off his sixth-place finish in Event #1 for $49,200. Roughly 30 minutes into play, with the blinds at 30,000/60,000 (60,000 bb ante), Riordan found himself on the short stack with just eight big blinds. From the hijack, he moved all-in holding [poker card="ks"][poker card="qd"] and Jake Schindler, next to act, made the call with his [poker card="as"][poker card="js"]. The rest of the table got out of the way and the pair watched as the board ran out [poker card="9h"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7d"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2s"] giving Schindler a straight and, for the second tournament in a row, ending Riordan’s day in sixth place for $51,600. With the blinds at 40,000/80,000 (80,000 bb ante) Sam Soverel clashed in a big pot against Daniel Negreanu. All-in before the flop, Negreanu held the [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"], and Soverel, with the slightly larger stack, had the [poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"]. The flop came [poker card="ts"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2d"], keeping Negreanu in good shape. It got even better for "Kid Poker" when the [poker card="kd"] hit the turn leaving Soverel drawing dead to the [poker card="8d"] river. After the hand, Soverel was left with roughly two big blinds. Although he hung around for fifteen minutes, Soverel could build it back up when his [poker card="5d"][poker card="5c"] eventually lost to Perry’s [poker card="9d"][poker card="8d"] on the [poker card="th"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8c"][poker card="kd"][poker card="7c"] run out. Soverel, who won the Poker Masters Purple Jacket back in 2019, finished in fifth place for $68,800. Perry grabbed a commanding chip lead with four players left and began to apply the pressure. From the button, Perry made it 160,000 to go with the [poker card="kc"][poker card="4h"]. Negreanu bowed out in the small blind and then Schindler, with seven big blinds left, three-bet all-in holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="2s"]. Perry took some time to consider and ended up making the call. The [poker card="jh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4c"] flop gave Perry bottom pair which held through the [poker card="5c"] turn and [poker card="2d"] river. Schindler fell in fourth place and picked up $86,000 on the day. The final three then went to break. On the first hand back, with blinds up to 50,000/100,000 (100,000 bb ante), there was only one big blind due to the prior elimination. First to act, Perry made it 225,000 holding [poker card="6d"][poker card="6c"] and Negreanu quickly moved all-in on the button for 1.425 million with his [poker card="kc"][poker card="tc"]. Jeremy Ausmus folded the single big blind and Perry wasted no time in calling. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"] keeping Perry’s sixes ahead, but not the favorite to Negreanu’s over cards, flush outs, and back door straight outs. The turn came the [poker card="9d"] giving Negreanu 16 outs one time. But that was simply too many outs, as Negreanu missed them all when the [poker card="ad"] completed the board. “He had half the deck and missed somehow,” Perry shouted as Negreanu collected his things and went to collect his $103,200 prize for third place. Unlike in Event #1, the heads-up match between Perry and Ausmus didn’t take very long. With a two-to-one chip lead, Perry kept control for the roughly 25-minute match. On the final hand, Ausmus raised to 200,000 holding the [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"] and Perry raised it to 825,000 with his [poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"]. Ausmus called and the flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="9h"][poker card="2c"] and Perry led for 400,000. In position, Ausmus opted for a call and the turn came the [poker card="kh"]. Perry checked it to Ausmus and Ausmus bet 800,000. After taking some time, Perry made the call. The [poker card="6d"] hit the river and Perry once again checked to Ausmus. Having missed all his outs, Ausmus moved all-in for just over 2 million. Perry went into the tank and eventually called the bluff with his pair of kings and ended the tournament. Ausmus was eliminated as the runner-up for $146,200 and Sean Perry took home the win and $206,400.
