Nick Schulman spends a lot of time in the commentary booth during the World Series of Poker but on Monday he wasn't able to do the commentary for one of the $10,000 Championship events. He was busy winning it. Schulman was the sole bracelet winner on Monday as nearly every table was in play for the opening day of one of the new additions to the schedule. Nick Schulman Wins $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo for Bracelet #3 Nick Schulman arrived at the Rio on Monday with the chip lead and just six other players standing between him and the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship title. It took just a smidge over five hours, including four hours of heads-up play, for Schulman to stand tall against a stacked final table and earn his third WSOP bracelet. Schulman eliminated three of the six including Joe Hachem in third place and Brian Hastings in second. The four-hour long heads-up battle so each player hold the chip lead before Schulman ultimately prevailed. Schulman, who last won a bracelet in 2012, tweeted after his win a tongue-in-cheek Marlo Stanfield warning for the rest of the poker world. The win came with $463,670 for Schulman while Hastings, who was 4-0 when heads-up for a bracelet before Monday, took home $286,570 for his runner-up finish.

The 2019 PokerStars EPT Open Sochi Main Event crowned a winner on Sunday as China’s Yi Ye defeated the field of 879 runners at Casino Sochi to take home his first EPT title and the RUB19,306,000 ($301,378) first-place prize. Only six players remained at the start of Day 4 as final table participants from Russia Vladislav Petrov (7th) and Boris Kitov (8th) were eliminated at the tail end of Day 3. Ye started the day in the middle of the pack, looking up at the overwhelming chip leader Giorgiy Skhulukhiya. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] The first of the final six to fall was Russia’s Abdul Mamin Abdal Ali Han who moved in over the top of Natalia Panchenko’s initial raise with his last remaining 10 big blinds with his [poker card="ah"][poker card="2h"]. Panchenko asked for a count and made the call holding [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3c"] flop kept Panchenko in the lead, but offered Han a gutshot straight draw. The turn was the [poker card="8d"] and the river came the [poker card="ac"], pairing both but giving the hand to Panchenko. Han exited in sixth place for RUB3,659,600 ($57,129). Roughly forty-five minutes later Egor Sukhov found himself racing for his tournament life. Ye opened in early position with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"] and Sukhov moved all-in on the button holding the [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"]. Ye ended up making the call and the pair were off to the races. The flop came [poker card="jh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"] putting Ye in the lead. The turn came the [poker card="2c"] leaving Sukhov looking for one of the final two 8’s in the deck. The [poker card="5s"] river completed the board and completed the tournament for Sukhov who finished in fifth place for RUB4,889,500 ($76,328). Four-handed play lasted for hours as the players took turns doubling through and taking over the chip lead. Eventually, Lidiya Kozenkova, who was sitting on the short stack raised with the [poker card="as"][poker card="8c"]and was called in two spots, by both Panchenko and Skhulukhiya. The flop came the [poker card="ah"][poker card="jc"][poker card="2h"] and when checked to, Kozenkova put in a continuation bet with top pair. Skhulukhiya folded and Panchenko made the call, having Kozenkova dominated with her [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"]. The [poker card="4s"] fell on the turn and Kozenkov moved all-in. Panchenko ended up calling putting Kozenkov at risk and looking for an eight. The [poker card="7d"] river was no help and after hours of grinding Kozenkova was the fourth-place finisher taking home RUB6,202,000 ($96,817) for her efforts. The final three players returned after dinner and the chips continued to fly when Ye put in a raise on the button with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8s"] and Panchenko defended her big blind with [poker card="jd"][poker card="tc"]. The [poker card="9h"][poker card="8h"][poker card="3d"] flop was checked through and the pair saw the [poker card="8d"] come on the turn giving Ye trips. Panchenko checked and Yi slid out a bet. After spending some time in the tank, Panchenko check-raised all-in and Yi made the call. Panchenko needed her open-ended straight draw to come in but the river fell the [poker card="3c"] sending Russia’s Panchenko to the rail in third place for RUB8,269,800 ($129,097). As soon as Yi and Skhulukhiya found themselves heads up, deal discussions broke out. Unable to come to a deal, the pair started what would be a very short heads up battle. Two hands after the deal fell through Ye, with the chip lead, raised on the button with [poker card="6s"][poker card="6c"] and Skhulukhiya moved all-in with the [poker card="kh"][poker card="qs"]. Ye made the quick call and Skhulukhiya was at risk. The flop fell [poker card="ad"][poker card="7s"][poker card="5h"], keeping Ye in the lead. When the [poker card="6h"] hit the turn, it was all over as Skhulukhiya was drawing dead to the [poker card="8s"] river. Skhulukhiya finished as the runner-up, taking home RUB11,722,200 ($182,991). China’s Yi Ye closed out the tournament becoming an EPT champion, taking home the trophy and the RUB19,306,000 ($301,378) first-place prize. Final Table Payouts 1. Yi Ye - RUB19,306,000 - $301,378 2.
