  1. On Tuesday, Caesars officials announced the 10 finalists for this year's Poker Hall of Fameclass. There are four newcomers to this year's ballot: Italian poker ambassador Max Pescatori, Irish Open founder Terry Rogers, highly influential tournament director Matt Savage, and longtime British poker player David "Devilfish" Ulliott (pictured). --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- Ulliott passed away in Aprilafter a battle with colon cancer and, almost immediately, players from around the world began clamoring for him to be inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame, either through the traditional process or via a special exemption. Ulliott appears like a strong candidate regardless and should have plenty of support among voters. Three players who appeared on last year's ballot but were not inducted are back in the top 10 this time around: Chris Bjorin, Bruno Fitoussi, and Jennifer Harman. Bjorin and Harman have now been finalists for four consecutive years, but have not yet been inducted. They'll join three finalists from previous years to round out the final 10: David Chiu, John Juanda, and Carlos Mortensen. The fate of the 10 finalists is now up to the 23 living Hall of Fame members and a 16-person media panel, who will together determine up to two inductees. The induction ceremony will take place during the November Nine weekend in Las Vegas. As a reminder, in order to be considered for the Poker Hall of Fame, a player must have played poker against acknowledged top competition, be a minimum of 40 years old at the time of nomination, played for high stakes, played consistently well, gained the respect of peers, and stood the test of time. Non-players like Savage (pictured) can get in as long as they have contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker with indelible positive and lasting results. Daniel Negreanu and Jack McClelland were inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2014, bringing the total number of members to 48. Here's a look at the existing Poker Hall of Famers: Jack McClelland Daniel Negreanu Tom McEvoy Scotty Nguyen Eric Drache Brian "Sailor" Roberts Barry Greenstein Linda Johnson Dan Harrington Erik Seidel Mike Sexton Henry Orenstein Duane "Dewey" Tomko Barbara Enright Phil Hellmuth Billy Baxter TJ Cloutier Crandell Addington Jack Binion Berry Johnston Bobby Baldwin Lyle Berman Johnny Chan Stu "The Kid" Ungar Roger Moore Julius Oral "Little Man" Popwell Jack Keller Thomas Austin "Amarillo Slim" Preston David "Chip" Reese Benny Binion Fred "Sarge" Ferris Doyle Brunson Jack "Treetop" Straus Walter Clyde "Puggy" Pearson Henry Green Red Hodges Murph Harrold Joe Bernstein Tom Abdo Bill Boyd T "Blondie" Forbes Nick "The Greek" Dandolos James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok Edmond Hoyle Felton "Corky" McCorquodale Johnny Moss Red Winn Sid Wyman In the past, the voting panel has received 10 votes each that they can allocate however they see fit (i.e. all 10 votes for one person or six for one person and four for someone else). The top two vote-getters have typically been inducted in recent years. Ballots are submitted electronically and voters are free to discuss who they backed if they'd like to. This author has been on the voting panel for the past several years. Who would you vote for? Comment here and let us know. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  2. The EPT Barcelona Main Eventwrapped up on Sunday with poker pro John Juanda claiming the €1 million first place prize. The Main Event in Barcelona gained the title of the largest EPT Main Event ever held at 1,694 players, eclipsing the Season 7 PCA Main Event, which drew 1,560. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- EPT President Edgar Stuchly commented in a press release, "It hardly seems any time since we were celebrating the record-breaking EPT100 here in Barcelona, but the turnout this season has surpassed all possible expectations. We offer a huge thank you to all 5,738 players who came here for this amazing festival, making it not only the biggest EPT ever held, but one of the biggest poker festivals in the world." Juanda defeated the UK's Steve Warburton heads-up and 247 players out of the 1,694 made the money. Here's how the final table looked: 1. John Juanda - €1,022,593 2. Steve Warburton - €941,613 3. Frederik Jensen - €810,294 4. Denys Shafikov - €405,100 5. Rainer Kempe - €320,400 6. Andreas Samuelsson - €253,900 7. Amir Touma - €194,100 8. Mario Sanchez - €137,080 As you'll notice from the payouts, there was a deal made three-handed that involved Juanda, Warburton, and Jensen, the latter of whom won the EPT Madrid Season 8 Main Event. Last year, 1,496 players turned out for the EPT Barcelona Main Event and Germany's Andre Lettau took it down for €794. Here's how the event has looked attendance-wise over the years: Season 1: 229 players Season 2: 327 players Season 3: 480 players Season 4: 543 players Season 5: 619 players Season 6: 479 players Season 7: 758 players Season 8: 811 players Season 9: 1,082 players Season 10: 1,234 players Season 11: 1,496 players Season 12: 1,694 players Juanda came into this year's EPT Main Event with over $16 million in live tournament winnings, according to the Hendon Mob, good for #10 on poker's all-time money list. He has two previous seven-figure scores all-time: $1.5 million for winning the 2008 WSOP Europe Main Event and $1.6 million for taking fifth in the 2012 2012 Macau High Stakes Challenge Super High Roller.

  3. The 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro is in the books, and several huge winners emerged from the high-stakes poker series held at the Maestral Resort & Casino along the Adriatic Sea. Chief among them was Bryn Kenney, who won more than $4.1 million total and jumped to No. 4 on poker's all-time money list, per Hendon Mob. Kenney only cashed twice in the series, but both times he won the tournament. In the first, Kenney topped a field of 79 entries to win the HK$500,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em event for HK$11.23 million ($1.43 million). In the second, he topped a field of 75 entries in the HK$1 million Main Event to win HK$21.3 million ($2.71 million). With those two wins, Kenney improved to just shy of $34.8 million in career live tournaments earnings, of which he's won more than $9.1 million in 2019 alone. Kenney’s previous best year on the live tournament felt was in 2017 when he won more than $8.5 million. Other big winners to come out of the 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro include Rui Cao ($3.61 million), Paul Phua ($3.59 million), Nikita Badziakouski ($2.91 million), and Daniel Dvoress ($2.71 million). Both Phua and Dvoress cashed five times in the series and a total of 12 players earned combined prizes of more than $1 million. Top 10 Triton Poker Series Montenegro Money List Bryn Kenney - $4,145,235 Rui Cao - $3,611,013 Paul Phua - $3,594,983 Nikita Badziakouski - $2,912,467 Daniel Dvoress - $2,717,155 Arnaud Romain - $2,130,372 Daniel Tang - $1,976,217 Sam Greenwood - $1,943,613 Peter Jetten - $1,865,303 Ben Lamb - $1,192,009 Just outside of the top 10 were Kenneth Kiang and Seng 'Ivan' Leow, who cashed for $1.08 million and $1.06 million from the series, respectively.

As already mentioned, Kenney jumped to No. 4 overall. Jason Koon, who cashed three times in Montenegro for just under $1 million, slid up one spot ahead of Antonio Esfandiari to be No. 8. Isaac Haxton, who, like Koon, won just under $1 million from this series, is now No. 13 and Badziakouski jumped to No. 15. John Juanda, who won an event in Montenegro for just more than $600,000, actually dropped back to No. 14. Then, looking a bit further down the leaderboard, Phua can now be found at No. 62 on the list after winning $3.59 million in Montenegro. High roller and super high roller events are as plentiful as they have ever been on the poker circuit. Numerous stops have $25,000 or $50,000 buy-in events, and some even push the envelope even further with $100,000 price tags on the schedule. Then, there are several festivals a year that are solely dedicated to ultra high-stakes players, such as the Triton Poker Series festivals. If there was ever a 'steroid era' in poker, similar to what baseball went through for an extended period of time, most commonly referred to as the latter half of the 1990s and into the 2000s. It's not that poker players are using performance-enhancing drugs to boost their earnings, but rather that there’s such an injection of these super high buy-in small-field events that are causing grand shifts in money lists. It doesn’t appear that these events and festivals are going anywhere, so poker will need to go through a bit of a market correction and rankings adjustments to correctly account for the juiced results.
  4. 2019 marks the 50th annual World Series of Poker. The most prestigious poker festival in history has played a pivotal role in creating many of the legends and superstars of the game. To commemorate the occasion, PocketFives editorial staff each ranked the top 50 players in WSOP history in an effort to define and rank the most important, influential, and greatest WSOP players of all time. #20 - Men Nguyen BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 7 95 $3,308,113 43 For over 30 years Men ‘The Master’ Nguyen has made his presence felt at the World Series of Poker. A seven-time bracelet winner with over $3.3 million in earnings, Nguyen’s success at the series is often accompanied by rumblings and allegations of cheating at points in his career (all of which he denies.) A player of all the games, four of his seven titles have come in a variant of Seven-Card Sud, the most recent of which took place in 2010 when he earned the bracelet and first-place prize of $394,807 in the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship Event. His 95 WSOP cashes currently puts him seventh on the All-Time WSOP Cashes list. READ: WSOP Top 50: Huck Seed, Shaun Deeb, David Chiu Make Top 30 #19 - TJ Cloutier BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 6 70 $4,468,559 42 Poker Hall of Fame member TJ Cloutier has earned just under $4.5 million over the course of his nearly 35 years attending the World Series of Poker. Cloutier has six bracelets to his name, two of which he picked up in the same year. In addition to his six titles, Cloutier finished as the runner-up in five other bracelet events. He’s finished in the top 10 an astonishing 42 times out of his 70 WSOP cashes. Additionally, Cloutier plays all the games, earning a bracelet in Razz, Pot Limit Hold’em and three in a variant of Omaha. His most recent bracelet was back in 2005 when he took down the $5K No Limit Hold’em, one of the most difficult events of the summer, for over $657,000. #18 - Joe Cada BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 4 35 $13,102,334 9 Winner of the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event for over $8.5M, Joe Cada has been a force at the WSOP for nearly a decade. He has four bracelets, two of which came in 2018 when he had one of the best years in WSOP history. Cada kicked off the 2018 series with his third bracelet in Event #3 ($3,000 No Limit Hold’em Shootout). Then he went on to his second post-Moneymaker final table, finishing in fifth place for $2.15M. Immediately after busting the Main Event, Cada register for, and eventually won, Event #75 (The Closer, $1,500 No Limit Hold’em) for his fourth bracelet and another $612K. "Joe Cada already has four gold bracelets and is coming off an incredible summer that had him contending for the WSOP Player of the Year award. When Cada won the WSOP Main Event in 2009, he was the poster boy of an online poker player. He's graduated to become one of the top tournament players we see at the WSOP and is someone who can be considered as legitimate a threat as any to win a bracelet each summer. Placing first and fifth in the WSOP Main Event in the post-Moneymaker era in nothing short of tremendous, and at just 31 years old, the sky is the limit for Cada at the WSOP." - Donnie Peters, PocketFives Managing Editor #17 - John Hennigan BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 5 44 $5,400,259 17 Five-time WSOP gold bracelet winner John Hennigan is a master of all the games. As one of the most respected mixed game players, his most notable bracelet win came in the 2014 $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship. The PPC is an event that he has made the final table of three times, nearly taking it down again in 2018. The Poker Hall of Famer has also won titles in $2,000 Limit Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo (2002), $5,000 Limit Hold’em (2004), $10,000 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship (2016) and $10,000 HORSE (2018). Hennigan has over $5.4M in earnings since his first WSOP cash back in 1999. "JOhn Hennigan might not have triple digit WSOP cashes, but for my money, he belongs higher up on this list ahead of some players who do. He plays a very limited schedule at the WSOP and focuses most of his energy on cash games. But when he does come to the Rio and buy-in to an event, he's always a threat to go deep. Three of his bracelets came in events that elite level players hold in high regard: $10K HORSE, $10K Triple Draw 2-7, $50K Poker Players Championship." - Lance Bradley, Editor in Chief #16 - Johnny Moss BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 9 27 $4,385,499 27 Nine-time bracelet winner Johnny Moss was a player in the World Series of Poker from the very beginning. Back in 1970 the very first WSOP Main Event was not the tournament format it is today. It was a cash game where the title was awarded through a vote by fellow players and Moss was selected to win, not a bracelet, but the inaugural silver cup. The series changed to a tournament the next year and Moss went on to win the Main Event. He won the Main Event again in 1974. A fixture of the WSOP, Moss, a Poker Hall of Fame member, was a Seven Card Stud specialist, winning four of his nine bracelets in a Seven Card Stud variant. He was a fixture of the series right through to 1995, when he passed away at the age of 88. READ: WSOP Top 50: Brian Rast, Chip Reese, Dan Harrington Make Top 40 #15 - Mike Matusow BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 4 62 $4,014,593 21 One of the biggest poker superstars to emerge in the wake of the poker boom is Mike ‘The Mouth’ Matusow. The television cameras were drawn to Matusow’s overwhelming self-confidence and his seemingly non-stop table talk. Matusow has nearly $4M in career WSOP earnings and four gold bracelets spanning his 20+ year career. A threat in any game, Matusow has bracelets in No Limit Hold’em, Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, No Limit 2-7, and Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo. He’s made two Main Event final tables and finished in the Top 10 21 out of his 62 cashes. Stats aside, Matusow’s personality is equally important to the WSOP brand as his exploits dominated ESPN’s televised coverage for years. “Bold, brash, and extremely polarizing, Mike ‘The Mouth’ Matusow is the archetype of the heart-on-your-sleeve old school poker player who seemed to live and die on every flop, turn and river. His antics at the table drew the television cameras to him and it left an impression on every up and coming poker player who tuned in to see what he would say next. But the things is, he’s the kind of guy who talks a big game and then shows up to back it up. A premiere mixed game player, Matusow is a player, still to this day, is a final table threat in just about any tournament he enters.” - Jeff Walsh, PocketFives Senior Writer #14 - John Juanda BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 5 65 $4,736,040 36 Longtime live grinder John Juanda remains one of the most respected poker players in the world and much of that is due to his success at the WSOP. This year will be Juanda’s twentieth at the series where he’s accumulated over $4.7M in earnings and five gold bracelets. In 2003, Juanda scored two bracelets in the same year taking down Event #21 ($2,500 Limit Seven Card Stud) and Event #33 ($2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha). In 2008, Juanda won himself the WSOP Europe Main Event title for over $1.5M. Dangerous in any game he plays, each of Juanda's five bracelets was won in different poker variants. Equally impressive is Juanda ability to go deep in tournaments as he has made the top 10 in over that over half of his 65 WSOP cashes. "It really is amazing that more than half of John Juanda's cashes at the WSOP have resulted in top 10 finishes, and his five bracelets speak to the diversity of his skills as they come in five different games. Juanda has been a model of consistency at the WSOP for a long period of time. He may be a quiet, unemotional player, but his presence is one of the game's most powerful and he remains one of the most feared opponents at the table." - Donnie Peters #13 - Billy Baxter BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 7 35 $1,100,207 16 Deuce to Seven specialist and one of the WSOP’s earliest attendees, noted professional sports bettor Billy Baxter has earned seven World Series of Poker bracelets, five of which have come in the aforementioned game. Baxter’s first recorded WSOP cash back in 1975 and four of his first five recorded WSOP scores were for wins. He has continued to appear at the series for over 40 years, having gone deep in the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball event in 2018. Baxter’s longevity has helped him pick up 35 cashes and over $1.1 million in earnings. READ: Ranking the 50 Greatest Players in World Series of Poker History #12 - Allen Cunningham BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 5 69 $7,222,077 23 Allen Cunningham has quietly crushed the World Series of Poker since he first cashed in the series back in 1998. Cunningham has won five bracelets and over $7.2 million in earnings over 69 total cashes. His first bracelet came back in 2001 in a $5,000 Seven-Card Stud tournament. After picking up his third bracelet in 2005 and reaching three additional final tables that year, Cunningham earned himself the WSOP Player of the Year. He came back in 2006 to make the final table of the Main Event, finishing in fourth place for over $3.6M. Then, in 2007, he returned to capture his fifth bracelet in the $5,000 Pot-Limit Hold’em Championship. His 69 cashes puts him in the top 25 on the All-Time WSOP Cashes list. #11 - Scotty Nguyen BRACELETS CASHES WINNINGS TOP 10s 5 62 $5,899,247 25 One of the most iconic players in World Series of Poker is Scotty Nguyen, baby. Dubbed 'The Prince of Poker', Nguyen is a five-time bracelet winner with over $5.8 million in earnings and nearly an equal amount of historic televised moments on the felt. He took home the Main Event title in 1998 for $1,000,000 and followed that up with his infamous bracelet-winning performance at the 2008 $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship (later renamed the Poker Players Championship) for another $1.98M. Nguyen’s flare and style combined with his poker prowess turned him into a poker celebrity the likes of which has endured to this day…baby. “There’s only one Scotty, baby. The only player to have won both the Main Event (1998) and the $50,000 Poker Players Championship (2008, then called World Championship H.O.R.S.E.) Scotty’s WSOP results speak for themselves. But Scotty is a standout personality like none other - he fled Vietnam and came to the U.S., discovered poker and turned his skill into the American Dream. He picked up five bracelets (so far) along the way and he's won over a legion of fans with his trademark gold chains, loose table talk and the ability to end every sentence with ‘baby!’. Some may say the game has passed him by, but over $600,000 of his nearly $6M in career earnings came in 2018.” - Jeff Walsh, Senior Writer
  5. The 2019 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker headed into its final weekend by offering a full slate of big-time tournaments and massive paydays on Friday.

Among those who captured a SCOOP title on Friday include GPI #1 ranked Alex ‘bigfox86’ Foxen, Jason ‘jakoon1985’ Koon, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson and Matthew ‘MUSTAFABET’ Ashton.
