The final table of Event #3 ($25,000 Pot Limit Omaha) of the 2018 Poker Masters was headlined by Brandon Adams making his third straight final table appearance but by the end of it all, two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Keith Lehr stood tall to claim the win. Adams, who finished fourth in Event #1 and then won Event #2, and Lehr were joined at the final table by Dan Shak, Ben Yu, Jonathan Depa, and Isaac Haxton. It took nearly three hours before the first elimination on Monday. From UTG, Dan Shak raised to 140,000 with [poker card="9d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2c"] before Jonathan Depa re-raised to 480,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2s"] and Shak called all in. The board ran out [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"][poker card="9s"][poker card="ad"][poker card="4c"] to eliminate Shak in sixth place. Even though he came into the final table with the second biggest chip stack, Brandon Adams fell short in his run for back-to-back titles thanks to Ben Yu. Action folded to Yu on the button and he raised to 175,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"][poker card="qh"][poker card="4h"] and Adams called from the big blind with [js[poker card="th"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8h"]. Adams then checked after the [poker card="td"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"] flop and Yu bet 125,000. Adams tanked for nearly a full minute, using a time bank in the process, before moving all in for 715,000. Yu called. The [poker card="4s"] turn and [poker card="4c"] river actually improved Yu's hand and eliminated Adams. It took almost a full hour before the next elimination happened. Isaac Haxton raised to 280,000 from the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"][poker card="9s"][poker card="3c"] and Jonathan Depa defended the big blind with [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="7d"][poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"] was followed by a bet from Depa and an all in call from Haxton. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] and the river was the [poker card="th"] to give Depa runner-runner two pair to send Haxton out in fourth. Ben Yu lasted just one more hand. Yu raised to 280,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6d"] on the button and Lehr defended his big blind with [poker card="qs"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6s"]. Lehr checked the [poker card="jc"][poker card="th"][poker card="9s"] flop to Yu and then snap-called Yu's shove. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] and the river was the [poker card="8d"] and Yu was out in third. Heads-up play started with Depa holding less than a single big blind more than Lehr and took just 20 minutes to get to a winner. Now down 3-1 in chips, Depa completed from the button with [poker card="7h"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2s"] and Lehr checked his option with [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5d"] to send both players to a [poker card="js"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2h"] flop. Lehr bet 240,000 and Depa raised to 720,000. Lehr announced he was all in and Depa called and found out he was ahead with two pair. The [poker card="8c"] turn flipped the script though and gave Lehr a bigger two pair. The [poker card="5s"] river changed nothing and Lehr eliminated Depa to claim his first career Poker Masters title. Final Table Payouts Keith Lehr - $333,000 Jonathan Depa - $222,000 Ben Yu - $148,000 Isaac Haxton - $92,500 Brandon Adams - $74,000 Dan Shak - $55,500 With his fifth-place finish, Adams continues to lead the overall points standings for the Poker Masters title and accompanying Purple Jacket.

The record-setting WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic wrapped up at Bellagio in Las Vegas, with the $10,400 Main Event attracting a huge field of 1,001 entries and featuring some of poker's biggest names. In addition to the Main Event, the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic schedule featured several events with five-figure buy-ins and one with a six-figure price of entry. Here are the winners from a tremendous week of poker in Sin City. The biggest winners overall from these high buy-in events, excluding the $10,400 Main Event, were Jake Schindler, Jason Koon, Seth Davies, Chris Hunichen, and Dominik Nitsche. Although he didn't earn the most money, it's certainly worth noting that Sam Soverel cashed in four of these events for a total of $314,500. No one else cashed in more than two. Ladines Wins First $10,000 PLO Event The first two high roller events on the schedule were both $10,000 buy-in pot-limit Omaha tournaments. The first one attracted 35 entries for a $350,000 prize pool and saw the top five places make the money. Joshua Ladines took the event’s title and $128,090 top prize, with both Brian Rast and Sam Soverel finishing in the money. Joshua Ladines - $128,090 John Riordan - $102,910 Jonathan Abdellatif - $56,000 Brian Rast - $35,000 Sam Soverel - $28,000 Soverel Takes Second $10,000 PLO Event In the second $10,000 PLO event, a group of familiar faces was back in the money. Soverel topped the field of 29 entries to win the title and $116,000, Ladines finished third for $46,400, and WPT Five Diamond wonder boy Ryan Tosoc scored fifth for $23,200. Tosoc notably finished second in the Season XV WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $1.134 million before going on to win the event in Season XVI for $1.958 million. Sam Soverel - $116,000 Jonathan Depa - $75,400 Joshua Ladines- $46,400 Michael Song - $29,000 Ryan Tosoc - $23,200 Hennigan Captures $10,000 8-Game Mixed Title If you know Bellagio, you know it’s home to the most iconic high-stakes poker room in the world, Bobby’s Room. It’s where the game’s elite compete for astronomical cash-game stakes, but during WPT Five Diamond some of those players shifted their focus to tournament play, specifically in the $10,000 buy-in 8-Game Mixed High Roller. The tournament generated 24 entries, and it was none other than five-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner and WPT Champions Club member John Hennigan taking home the top prize of $110,400. John Hennigan - $110,400 Ben Yu - $67,200 Randy Ohel - $38,400 John Racener - $24,000 Loeser and Fox Chop First $25,000 High Roller In the first of three $25,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournaments on this year’s WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic slate, 42 entries were generated to create a prize pool of $1.05 million. The top six places paid, and the top two spots went to Manig Loeser and Elio Fox in a chop that earned each player more than $300,000. Loeser scored first place for $321,300, and Fox took second for $308,700. Manig Loeser- $321,300 Elio Fox - $308,700 Jake Schindler - $168,000 Dan Smith - $105,000 Cary Katz - $84,000 Nick Petrangelo - $63,000 Petrangelo Wins Second $25,000 High Roller The second $25,000 buy-in tournament attracted 47 entries and generated a $1.175 million prize pool. The top seven places reached the money, with several notables cashing. None earned more than Nick Petrangelo, though, who chopped the event heads up with Sergio Aido to take home the winning prize of $289,944. Aido scored $287,634 for second. Petrangelo was coming off a sixth-place result for $63,000 in the first $25,000 event of this series. Soverel, who finished in the money of the first two high rollers on the schedule, including winning one for $116,000, finished sixth in this event for $70,500. Nick Petrangelo - $289,944 Sergio Aido - $287,634 Seth Davies - $256,672 Ben Yu - $117,500 Kazuhiko Yotsushika - $94,000 Sam Soverel - $70,500 Rainer Kempe - $58,750 Davies Victorious in Third $25,000 High Roller The third and final $25,000 high roller tournament on the WPT Five Diamond schedule drew 50 entries for a $1.25 million prize pool. The top eight places reached the money, and it was Seth Davies taking the title and $341,920 in first-place prize money. The win came just days after Davies took third in the previous $25,000 high roller event during the series of $256,672, as you can see above. Davies did a deal with Isaac Haxton in second place, who earned $320,580. The money was filled with notable high rollers, including Alex Foxen taking third for $175,000. Foxen has had himself quite a 2018 and is closing it strong both on the live felt and the virtual felt. In the online world, Foxen recently achieved a new all-time high in the top 100 of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. You'll also notice Soverel's name appearing in the in-the-money places once again, this time for fifth place, worth $100,000. Seth Davies - $341,920 Isaac Haxton - $320,580 Alex Foxen - $175,000 David Peters - $125,000 Sam Soverel - $100,000 Christoph Vogelsang - $75,000 Rainer Kempe - $62,500 Elio Fox: $50,000 Schindler Defeats Koon for $100,000 Super High Roller Victory The final big buy-in event from the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic schedule this year was the $100,000 Super High Roller. The event drew 37 entries to Bellagio for a $3.7 million prize pool and the top six spots reached the money. Earning the $1.332 million first-place prize was Jake Schindler. Adding that score to the $168,000 he won earlier in the series for taking third place in one of the $25,000 high rollers, Schindler scored $1.5 million in prize money at Bellagio this December. Schindler beat out Jason Koon for the win, and Koon took home $888,000 for his second-place finish. Jake Schindler - $1,332,000 Jason Koon - $888,000 Chris Hunichen - $592,000 Dominik Nitsche - $370,000 Ben Tollerene - $296,000 Talal Shakerchi - $222,000
Only one bracelet was awarded Tuesday at the 2019 World Series of Poker, but the table has been set for one of poker's biggest names to take center stage on Wednesday. Daniel Negreanu sits on top of the final seven players in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship, putting him in position to win his seventh career bracelet. Meanwhile, Joseph Cheong used Tuesday to improve his chances of winning his first career bracelet. Joseph Cheong Headlines $1K Double Stack Final Six Three times in his poker career, Joseph Cheong has finished runner-up in a WSOP bracelet event. On Tuesday he did everything possible to give himself the best chance possible to improve upon those results. Cheong finished Day 3 of the $1,000 Double Stack No Limit Hold'em event with 100,300,000 - over 40% of the chips in play - and heads into Wednesday's six-handed final table with the chip lead. The player closest to Cheong is David Ivers with 60,400,000. China's Zinan Xu, who started the day with the chip lead sits third with 53,900,000. Among the 34 players who busted on Tuesday were Jack Sinclair, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Tim West, and recent WPT ARIA Summer Championship winner Matthew Wantman. Action resumes at Noon PT. Final Table Chip Counts Joseph Cheong - 100,300,000 David Ivers - 60,400,000 Zinan Xu - 53,900,000 Andrea Buonocore - 17,800,000 Ido Ashkenazi - 11,700,000 Arianna Son - 4,500,000 Robert Mitchell Wins $800 Deepstack Vegas-based poker pro Robert Mitchell beat Italy's Marco Bognanni to win the $800 No Limit Hold'em Deepstack event for the first bracelet of his career and nearly $300,000. "Overall, that’s what poker players play for is the bracelet," Mitchell said. "To have one now, it’s on my resume and it feels good." The win comes a little more than a week after the 41-year-old came 17th in the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Shootout event. This is just the sixth career WSOP cash for Mitchell, but he felt the win was coming. “One-hundred percent I did. I knew I was going to have another shot at it. I’ve been playing poker for a long time and felt like it was long overdue. It’s awesome.” Bognanni had to settle for $183,742 as runner-up. Final Table Payouts Robert Mitchell - $297,537 Marco Bognanni - $183,742 Axel Hallay - $134,817 Francois Evard - $99,752 Benjamin Underwood - $74,435 Kamel Mokhammad - $56,019 Benjamin Moon - $42,524 Zachary Mullennix - $32,561 Nick Jivkov - $25,152 Just 120 Remain in Record-Setting Super Seniors Day 2 of the $1,000 Super Seniors event saw the field go from 838, through the money bubble and stopped with just 120 players still in contention for the bracelet and $359,863 first place prize money. Leading the way is Jay Hong, from California. Hong has a talented group of players chasing him though. Barry Shulman, co-owner of CardPlayer Magazine and winner of the 2009 WSOP Europe Main Event, sits second. His wife, Allyn Shulman, also advanced to Day 3 with an average stack. Other notables still holding on to a shot at the title include Don Zewin, Larry Wright, Tom Franklin, and Humberto Brenes. The schedule calls for an 11 AM PT restart with plans to play down to a winner on Wednesday. Top 10 Chip Counts Jay Hong - 1,838,000 Barry Shulman - 1,270,000 James Plateroti - 1,181,000 Clifford Pappas - 1,165,000 Miles Harris - 1,090,000 Steven Wenrich - 1,074,000 Stuart Hosen - 992,000 Jimmy Crouch - 916,000 Aaron Dolgin - 898,000 Jian Zhang - 858,000 Denis Bagdasarov Bags Day 2 Chip Lead $1,500 PLO Pennsylvania poker player Denis Bagdasarov finished Day 2 of the record-setting $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event as the only player over 3,000,000 in chips and leads the final 21 players heading into Day 3. The rest of the field includes Ben Zamani, Anton Wigg, Ismael Bojang, and Steve Sung. This is Bojang's 10th cash of the 2019 WSOP and puts him alone atop the leaderboard for most cashes. He also has 72 career WSOP cashes without a win, moving him into sixth all-time on that list behind Roland Israealashvili, Tony Cousineau, Tom McCormick, Allen Kessler, and Shannon Shorr. James Little finished with the fifth largest stack. This is Little's eighth cash of the 2019 WSOP. He's only had three other WSOP cashes in his career. There were 200 players at the start of the day, and after 17 eliminations all remaining players were guaranteed an in-the-money finish. Matt Stout, Ankush Mandavia, Dan Zack, Loren Klein, Kenny Hallaert, Erik Seidel, and Mike Matusow were among the 162 players to cash and bust on Tuesday. The final 21 players are back in action beginning at a Noon PT.

Negreanu finished Day 2 of the $10,000 Seven Card Stud event with 1,502,000, nearly 500,000 more than the second biggest stack, belonging to David 'ODB' Baker. Those two are followed by bracelet winners Frank Kassela, John Hennigan, Chris Tryba, and David Singer.

A total of 2,208 players were eliminated on Day 1.

Just over two weeks after winning a €50,000 Short Deck event at King's Casino in Rozvadov, Jonathan Depa picked up another short deck title on Thursday after beating Alex Foxen heads-up in the Poker Masters $10,000 Short Deck event. The last four cashes on Depa's Hendon Mob profile are all in the game of Short Deck. "Heaters are always fun," Depa said. "I don't really play that many tournaments. To win two tournaments in two weeks is pretty awesome and it's always nice when you're just basically winning every all in." [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] The final table included a Poker Hall of Famer, a former November Niner, the reigning GPI Player of the Year, the reigning High Roller of the Year and a three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner. None of them were a match for Depa though. Jorryt van Hoof, who finished third in the 2014 WSOP Main Event, limped with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"] before Sam Soverel raised all in to 940,000 with [poker card="qs"][poker card="th"]. Action folded back to Van Hoof and he used a time extension before calling. The board ran out [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"][poker card="6s"][poker card="qh"][poker card="ac"] to give both players two pair and leave Soverel, who won the PokerCentral High Roller of the Year title in 2018, out in sixth place. On the next hand, Ben Yu moved all in with [poker card="jd"][poker card="ts"] and Depa called with [poker card="as"][poker card="ks"]. The flop came [poker card="jh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="7c"] to give Yu to pair and a straight draw. The [poker card="kd"] turn gave Depa the advantage back and after the [poker card="7s"] completed the board, Yu was eliminated. First to act, van Hoof moved all in for 1,330,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"] and Foxen also moved all for 1,890,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kd"] forcing Depa and Seidel to fold. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6s"] flop gave Foxen a stranglehold on the pot and the [poker card="6c"] turn gave him a full house to eliminate van Hoof in fifth place as the meaningless [poker card="tc"] completed the board. Foxen continued to enjoy the role of executioner and his next victim was Poker Hall of Famer Erik Seidel. Seidel opened by moving all in for 1,230,000 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="9d"] and Foxen mvoed all in behind him with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"] and Depa folded. Foxen fell behind on the [poker card="9s"][poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"] flop, but the [poker card="7c"] turn gave Foxen straight and flush draws. The [poker card="6c"] river completed Foxen's flush and eliminated Seidel in third. Thanks in part to those two eliminations, Foxen began heads-up play with 72% of the chips in play. The pair played for more than 90 minutes before Depa completed the comeback. Foxen opened by moving all-in with [poker card="jh"][poker card="9d"] and Depa called with [poker card="qs"][poker card="jd"]. Foxen was unable to double up on the [poker card="qd"][poker card="7c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="8s"][poker card="9s"] runout and was eliminated in second place giving Depa the title. Final Table Payouts Jonathan Depa - $133,200 Alex Foxen - $88,800 Erik Seidel - $59,200 Jorryt van Hoof - $37,000 Ben Yu - $29,600 Sam Soverel - $22,200
