  1. 34 pounds. That’s all that separates Jamie Staples and his younger brother Matthew Staples from winning $150,000 of that sweet, sweet Bill Perkins money. As a reminder, the brothers were offered 50-1 odds by Perkins that the brothers couldn’t weigh within one pound of each other. Jamie weighed 305 at the time. Matthew was just 130 pounds. “I weighed in about six days ago and I was 212 pounds, and my brother was 178 (Monday) morning,” said the elder Staples. That means that by March 26 at 5 pm, the pair only have to work off 34 pounds. Originally, the brothers were trying to get to 180 pounds, but that’s no longer the plan. “I would say we’re (looking at) around 187 right now. It will depend on how the next two months go. I think 180 would be ideal, but it’s maybe a bit optimistic,” said Staples.. Dropping 93 pounds over 10 months has been a challenge for Jamie. The brothers have worked with trainer Mike Vacanti even while traveling around the world. Staples has taken his live stream set up to Montreal, Vienna, and Split (Croatia) and even as he moves from city to city, he’s managed to find ways to eat healthily and get in the necessary work. “There’s good things to eat everywhere, and the brutal thing is I’ve lived with my brother, so I’ve seen him eating the chips and the pizza and the potatoes and the rice and the pasta. I’m just sitting there with my chicken breast and salad,” joked Staples. “I think it’s doable in any part of the world, so I didn’t want to sacrifice the lifestyle and the opportunity we have playing poker for a living to do it in a bunch of places, I thought that I could do both of those things, so I’m glad I did.” The Canadian Team PokerStars Online Pro admits that the hard work has been fun and it’s allowed him to discover ways he can live a healthy lifestyle while living life abroad or traveling from tournament to tournament. “We’re aiming for 1,300 calories a day, so every day you’re slowly starving yourself, and you feel the effects of that in terms of concentration and energy and mood and mindset, so it’s very draining, and I’m tired. I’m ready for it to be done,’ said Staples. If you read that and think that having any sort of issues with concentration, energy, mood, and mindset could have a negative impact on a poker player at a live tournament, you’re right. Jamie knows it too. “It absolutely does and I describe it to people as a sliding scale. There’s a bottom and a top, and previously, when I was really overweight - 300 lbs - my bottom was much lower and my top was much lower,“ said Staples. “I think most days I’m operating on 20% of normal energy, but that scale has moved up significantly to where my bad days now are where my good days were. So it’s progressively getting better all the time, and I just feel fresher.” Matthew, on the other hand, is literally and figuratively on the other end of that scale. The diet he’s on has him eating an average of 3,500 calories per day. It’s a lot of pasta, rice and potatoes, not to mention some other foods that will help him pack on some pounds. “It’s been difficult for him for sure. He’s lifting a lot of weights so he’s very, very strong but he’s just tired of eating. This is a guy that walked around at 135 or 140 pounds,” said Staples. “He’s just tired of it, he just wants to eat some normal stuff and not have to think about constantly eating. You’re tired as well when you’re eating that many calories, so it can really burn you out in the middle of the day when you’re on your second helping of pasta.” There are just 2.5 months left before the weigh in. They get one shot at hitting their number but have planned out that day already to make sure there’s no last-minute drama. “We’re researching the best scales so we can get it very exact and not have any fluctuations that way. There’s no regulations in terms of how much we can weigh in before that 5 pm time,” said Staples. “We’ll come into that day at the same weight and we’ll just be fluctuating water weight throughout the day, so at 4:59 we’ll be hopping on the scale, making sure we’re there.”
  2. The penultimate day of partypoker POWERFEST action saw 13 players claim themselves a title.

  3. After Day 1 of the 2019 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker yielded just three new champions, Day 2 gave us 12 champions including a long-time PocketFiver taking down a career-high score in the biggest event of the day. Russia's 'BilFray' beat Moritz 'MuckCallOK' Dietrich heads up in the Sunday Million Special Edition event after the two players agreed to a deal. 'BilFray' ended up taking home $175,632.72 while Dietrich had to settle for $145,084.74 as the runner-up. The previous best score for 'BilFray' came back in 2010 when he won $8,787 on Full Tilt Poker. Third place went to Matthew Staples. The partypoker Team Pro came just short of picking up his first six-figure score, taking home $92,812.18. The biggest winner on Monday was Canadian 'L1VeYRdrEamS'. Beating out 570 other players in Event #4-High ($2,100 Sunday High Roller SE), the final three players agreed to a deal that saw each of them take home no less than $133,000. Once cards were back in the air, 'L1VeYRdrEamS' beat out the two remaining players to win $177,085.12. Runner-up 'Ti0373' pocketed $153,063.22 and third place finisher 'neeno1990' banked $133,388.22.

  5. Monday brought another full slate of online poker action courtesy of partypoker’s ongoing $20,000,000 guaranteed POWERFEST series. In total, 43 tournaments concluded on Monday with ‘SunTzu’ emerging as the day's biggest winner. They outlasted the 146 entries that registered for POWERFEST #17-SHR: $100K guaranteed [6-Max, PKO] to take home the $13,983.54 first-place prize. However, the real money for ‘SunTzu’ came by picking up an additional $21,566.06 in bounties, creating a total score of $35,550.14. Finishing right behind ‘SunTzu’ in this event was ‘Stolewon’ who earned $13,968.88 as the runner-up and $5,291.01 in bounties for a grand total of $19,259.89. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] ‘PayAndPlay’ had a nice day on the grind as well. They made a pair of High Roller final tables on Monday including an outright win in POWERFEST #14-HR: $75K Guaranteed [8-Max] for $23,320. 'PayAndPlay' followed that up with a deep run in POWERFEST #18-HR: $20K Guaranteed [6-Max, PLO], finishing in fourth place for another $4,361.25. 'slayerv1fanpkr' also picked up a nice boost their bankroll in POWERFEST #14, earning $16,280 as the runner-up. The largest prize pool of the day belonged to POWERFEST #17-H: $150K Guaranteed [6-Max, PKO].

  6. It was another action-packed day on the virtual felts as Day 5 of partypoker’s POWERFEST continued to deliver massive prize pools and big-time paydays. The largest payout of the day was handed out to ‘iRunStims’ who took down Event #43-SHR ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max). ‘iRunStims’ navigated the 101-entry field to capture the $123,725 first-place prize and the Super High Roller title. Settling for second place was ‘aaabbb’ who also walked away with a nice payday of $88,375. The longwinded screen name ‘kgroqigmqtbmqom’ just missed out on a POWERFEST title for the second day in a row, grabbing the bronze and $63,125. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] ‘jerbi9999’ won the heads-up battle against ‘MrDatt’ in Event #40-HR ($530 NLHE 8-Max, Grind) to walk away with $28,258 for first. ‘MrDatt’ also earned a five-figure payday, taking home $20,448 as the runner-up. ‘MeisterYoda’ claimed third place for $14,342. Team partypoker ambassador Renato ’renato_nomura’ Nomura finished in sixth place for $5,538, one of two High Roller final table for him on the day. ‘Riverdave’ scored an outright victory in Event #41-HR earning a $45,673 score while ‘Van_Vian_Van’ was forced to settle for second place and $33,152. GPI Female Player of the Year Kristen ‘Krissyb24’ Bicknell also made the final table in this one, bowing out in eighth place and adding $5,152 to her over $3.5 million in career online earnings. One of the themes of Thursday was Team partypoker players making deep runs. This was highlighted by the victory of partypoker ambassador Joni ‘JJouhki’ Jouhkimainen in Event #42-SHR ($5,200 Pot Limit Omaha, 6-Max). It was a small field of 46 entries but in the end, Jouhkimainen, a PLO specialist, took home the $92,000 first-place prize. He defeated ‘Robbery9999’ heads-up, who also finished the day with a nice score of $58,867.35. Speaking of nice scores, ‘Stolewon’ avoided the knock-out in Event #44-HR ($2,100 NLHE, 6-Max, PKO) to pick up the $29,146.22 payout for first. They added another $51,171.13 in bounties for a grand total haul of just over $80,000. ‘Executioner_’ fell in second place, earning $29,114.39 plus another $8,137.49 in bounties. ‘kgroqigmqtbmqom’ finished in third place in a High Roller for the second time on Thursday, adding $20,484.23 plus $3,445.31 in bounties to their earnings on the day. It was nearly a pair of victories for Team partypoker. After a nearly nine-hour grind in Event #44-H ($320 NLHE, 6-Max, PKO), Team Online pro Matthew Staples was rivered by an 'ace from space' in what was the final hand of the tournament to come up one spot short. By the time Staples got to heads-up play against the hyper-aggressive ‘Coup_de_grace’, he had over 3,500 people watching him live on Twitch. He battled back from a 4:1 chip deficit when after flopping two pair ‘Coup_de_grace’ spiked an ace on the river giving them a higher two pair as the chips went in the middle. Staples added $18,339.34 plus an additional $5,68647 to his bankroll as the runner up. ‘Coup_de_grace’ logged off after collecting $18,366.47 and an additional $18,822,77 for first, a total of over $37,000.
