  1. In his tenth trip to a GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table, Aleks Ponakovs picked up his first victory in the event this week, besting the 235-entry field and taking home the $475,125 first-place prize. It was a bit of a positive reversal of fortune for Ponakovs who, over the past two weeks, made back-to-back final tables. Last week, he started the final table as the chip leader, sights set on the win, only to fall in fifth place for $172,271. This week, he started the day fifth in chips and made it all the way to the end, defeating two-time Super MILLION$ champ - and former #1-ranked online player in the world - Andras Nemeth to earn the win. It’s always an easy statement to say that the Super MILLION$ final table is one of the toughest in any given week, but this week there were simply no soft spots with top-tier players in every single seat. Ponakovs had to navigate a table that included the likes of Seth Davies, Chris Klodnicki, Ole Schemion, Rodrigo Selouan, and Elio Fox. In fact, last week’s Super MILLION$ champ, Sung Joo ‘ArtePokerTV’ Hyun started the day on the short stack. About 15 minutes into the final table, made a move to try and out of the bottom of the chip. counts. With the blinds at 30,000/60,000, Hyun moved all-in for roughly 10 big blinds holding the [poker card="ad"][poker card="7h"]. After Elio Fox folded his big blind, Andras Nemeth made the quick call holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="9d"], putting Hyun at risk. The board ran out [poker card="jc"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"] keeping Nemeth’s kicker in play and ending Hyun’s back-to-back bid in ninth place for $59,390. Nearly 45 minutes later, with the blinds now at 40,000/80,000, Seth Davies shipped his roughly 400,000 chip short stack in the middle with [poker card="ah"][poker card="2d"]. Nemeth in the small blind decided to flat with his [poker card="kh"][poker card="kd"] and Rodrigo Selouan made the call in the big blind with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"]. The flop came [poker card="jh"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7s"] and the action checked through. The turn was the [poker card="jc"] and once again the action went check-check. The [poker card="6c"] completed the board and Nemeth put out a small bet which prompted Selouan to immediately fold. Nemeth showed down his pocket kings leaving Davies to be eliminated in eighth place for $77,020. The very next hand, Ole Schemion opened from middle position to 160,000 holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"] and, once again, it was Nemeth looking to stack another opponent. On the button, Nemeth raised to 360,000 holding [poker card="9d"][poker card="9c"]. When the action folded back to Schemion, he shipped for just over 1.7 million and Nemeth made the call, leaving Schemion to flip for his tournament life. The flop came [poker card="kc"][poker card="jc"][poker card="3d"] keeping Nemeth ahead but giving Schemion additional straight outs and backdoor flush outs as well. The [poker card="jh"] turn changed nothing and when the river came the [poker card="2h"], Schemion’s day was done in seventh place for $99,882. With the blind up to 50,000/100,000 a major clash took place between Selouan and Elio Fox. Fox raised from the button to 250,000 with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"] and after Nemeth folded his small blind, Selouan moved all-in for nearly 5 million. Fox snap-called for his tournament, creating a more than 7.5 million chip pot. Fox was way ahead until the flop came down [poker card="ts"][poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"] giving Selouan bottom pair but also providing Fox with flush outs to go with his king. The turn was the [poker card="9d"], which added additional outs for Fox. It was practically a coin flip headed to the river but when the [poker card="9s"] hit, Selouan’s full house sent Fox to the rail to collect his $129,532 sixth-place prize. Although Selouan took over the chip lead with that hand, during an extended period of five-handed play Nemeth soared up the chip counts. When, at 100,000/200,000 Brazil’s Tauan Naves open-ripped his final 1.7 million from the button with the [poker card="as"][poker card="js"], Nemeth followed by moving the chip lead all-in with the almighty [poker card="5h"][poker card="5s"]. Selouan folded the big blind and Naves needed to hit in order to survive. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="9d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="6d"][poker card="8d"] board ran clean for Nemeth’s pocket fives and Naves was out in fifth, which was good for $167,982. Nemeth continued his assault on the table when, at 125,000/250,000, Chris Klodnicki moved all-in from the small blind for just over 2.8 million with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="5d"] and Nemeth woke up with [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"] in the big blind. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3s"] flop kept Nemeth in the lead but provided Klodnicki with some additional outs. The [poker card="7s"] turn increased Klodnicki’s straight opportunities but also gave Nemeth flush outs. However, neither came to pass as the [poker card="qc"] hit the river and Nemeth’s ace-king remained best. Klodnicki picked up $217,846 for his fourth-place run. With three left, Selouan was on the short stack. He picked up [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"] on the button and put in a raise to 500,000. Ponakovs, who was looking for his first elimination of the final table, looked down at [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] in the small blind and moved all-in for more than 8 million. Nemeth folded his big blind and Selouan made the call, only to find himself dominated. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7h"] flop gave both players a pair, but [poker card="8s"] turn and [poker card="8c"] river meant that Ponakovs’ kicked would play. Selouan, who started the day as the chip leader, settled for third place and a $282,511 payday. That hand was a big swing in terms of chips and when heads-up play began, Ponakovs held a very slight chip lead over Nemeth. It only took a few hands for Nemeth to wrestle back the lead, but Ponakovs was not about to fold so easily. For the better part of thirty minutes the players traded blows, each taking turns grabbing and relinquishing the chip lead. Eventually, the momentum turned in favor of Ponakovs and in a big hand where Nemeth moved all-in on the river with a made straight where Ponakovs turned a flush, Ponakovs opened up a 10:1 chip lead. On the final hand, with the blinds at 200,000/400,000 Nemeth moved all-in on the button for 3.5 million holding [poker card="qh"][poker card="6d"] and Ponakovs made the call with his [poker card="3s"][poker card="3d"]. There was no extra drama in the [poker card="ad"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="th"][poker card="jd"] board. Andras Nemeth was denied his third career Super MILLION$ title, finishing as the runner-up for $366,372, and Aleks Ponakovs, in his tenth Super MILLION$ final table, walked away with his first victory and this week’s $475,125 first-place prize. Super MILLION$ Final Table Results (2/22) Aleks Ponakovs - $475,125 Andras Nemeth - $366,372 Rodrigo Selouan - $282,511 Chris Klodnicki - $217,846 Tauan Naves - $167,982 Elio Fox - $129,532 Ole Schemion - $99,882 Seth Davies - $77,020 Sung Joo ‘ArtePokerTV’ Hyun - $59,390
  2. Germany’s Marius Gierse tackled the tough field of this week’s special edition of the GGPoker Super MILLION$ to capture his first Super MILLION$ title and the massive $1,242,190 first-place prize. It was Super MILLION$ Week on GGPoker which meant that the standard $10K buy-in event offered multiple Day 1 starting flights and, with 815 total entries, a super-sized $8,150,000 prize pool. Gierse picked a great week to break through. He’d been known as a regular in the tournament and had previously made six final tables with a pair of runner-up finishes. It looked for a moment like he was in for another second-place result this week, falling behind start-of-day chip leader Diego ‘Ushuaia1’ Zeiter during heads-up play. But Gierse’s Super MILLION$ final table experience prevailed as he dug himself out of the danger zone, found a critical double-up, and secured the win. It wasn’t just Zeiter that stood in Gierse’s way this week as a number of known crushers were in the mix for the seven-figure score including Wiktor ‘Limitless’ Malinowski, Ole Schemion, and Mikita Badziakouski. Badziakouski started the day seventh in chips, and 45 minutes into the final table was still hovering at the bottom of the chip counts when he ran into a critical spot against ‘TonyLin008’. With the blinds at 125,000/250,000 (30,000 ante), ‘TonyLin008’ open-shipped his final 2.3 million with [poker card="ks"][poker card="kd"] leading Badziakouski to also shove his 3.2 million stack holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"]. The rest of the table got out of the way and the board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"]5c][poker card="7h"][poker card="9c"], giving the double to ‘TonyLin008’ and leaving Badziakouski with less than four big blinds. The very next hand, Malinowski opened from under the gun with [poker card="7h"][poker card="7s"] and Badziakouski three-bet all-in holding the [poker card="4d"][poker card="4c"]. When it reached ‘Ushuaia1’ in the small blind, they put in the four-bet to 2.1 million with [poker card="js"][poker card="jh"]. Malinowski was forced out of the hand and the cards were turned up with Badziakouski looking for help to survive. The flop came [poker card="8h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="6c"], giving Badziakouski some additional straight outs. But the turn came the [poker card="ah"] and the river was the [poker card="td"], sending Badziakouski out in ninth for $155,273. Neel ‘Neel’ Joski had been holding on as the short stack, but when the blinds climbed to 150,000/300,000 (35,000 ante) he was forced to make his move. From UTG+1 he shipped his four big blind stack in with [poker card="qc"][poker card="ts"]. It folded to Daniel ‘Vanessa23’ Montagnolli in the big blind who woke up with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"] and he quickly made the easy call. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="3c"] shipping the pot to Montagnolli and ending Joski’s day in eighth place, good for $201,365. Early on it looked like ‘TonyLin008’ was going to be a force at the final table. But when his flopped set of queens got cracked by Malinowski’s rivered set of aces, he went from the middle of the pack to one of the short stacks. Another tough beat eventually sent the Hong Kong player to the rail. Gierse min-raised to 600,000 on the button with the [poker card="kc"][poker card="7s"] and ‘TonyLin008’ defended their big blind holding the [poker card="9c"][poker card="6s"]. The flop came [poker card="9d"][poker card="8d"][poker card="6c"] giving ‘TonyLin008’ a flopped two pair, but Gierse open-ended. When ‘TonyLin008’ checked it over to the German, Gierse put out a bet big enough to put ‘TonyLin008’ all-in. ‘TonyLin008’ quickly obliged, making the call. The turn was the [poker card="5s"], bringing in the straight for Gierse. The [poker card="jc"] river was no help for ‘TonyLin008’, who wrapped up in seventh place for $261,138. The blinds climbed to 200,000/400,000 (50,000) and Gierse continued to roll. From under the gun, Gierse made it 800,000 to go with his [poker card="ah"][poker card="ad"] and when the action returned to Montagnolli in the big blind with the [poker card="th"][poker card="td"], he shipped all-in. Gierse snap-called and the [poker card="jh"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="qs"] board brought little drama for Gierse who knocked out his countryman Montagnolli in sixth place for $338,654. The first hand after the second break, with the blinds at 250,000/500,000 (60,000 ante), Malinowski raised from the cutoff to 1 million with [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"]. In the small blind, Audrius ‘Audrii’ Stakelis three-bet shipped his final 3.3 million with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="qd"]. Back on Malinowski, he made the quick call only to see himself dominated. However, the flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="9d"][poker card="6c"], turning the tables and giving Malinowski the upper hand with his pair. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] giving Stakelis a few extra outs but the [poker card="js"] was not one of them. Stakelis’ run ended in fifth place for $439,180. Three hands later, the action folded to a short-stacked Ole Schemion in the small blind who moved all-in for 4.7 million with the [poker card="kh"][poker card="8s"]. Gierse looked at the [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] and made the easy call putting Schemion at risk. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="7h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="qd"][poker card="3s"] board kept Gierse’s ace-king in the lead the whole way and Schemion, who started the day sixth in chips, laddered to fourth place and collected $569,546. Three-handed play began with Malinowski and Diego ‘Ushuaia1’ Zeiter roughly even in chips and Gierse holding about 10 extra big blinds. Over the course of the next 30 minutes, Malinowski began to slip down the chip counts, and with the blinds at 300,000/600,000 (75,000 ante), ‘Limitless’ was sitting on just under 10 big blinds. Gierse opened on the button to 1.5 million with the [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"] and when it was Malinowski’s turn to act, he stuck his final 5.2 million in the middle with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="8h"]. Gierse made the call and the flop came [poker card="kh"][poker card="9c"][poker card="4d"], giving Gierse top-two and leaving Malinowski needing runner-runner to survive. The turn was the [poker card="8d"], bringing Malinowski a few extra outs but the [poker card="jh"] hit the river and Malinowski hit the rail in third place, picking up $738,610. Despite the knockout, Gierse was still looking up at Zeiter in the chip counts. However, there was only a roughly six big blind difference between the two. As play wore on Zeiter opened up a three-to-one chip lead. But Gierse hung around, chipped away, and eventually found a pure double up when he flopped top-two pair on a board where Zeiter flopped bottom-two pair. With the situation now reversed and Gierse holding the three-to-one lead, Zeiter limped the button holding [poker card="9s"][poker card="6d"] with the blinds at 400,000/800,000 (100,000 ante). Gierse, with the [poker card="8s"][poker card="4c"], checked his option and the pair saw a flop of [poker card="9h"][poker card="8c"][poker card="4h"], bringing Zeiter top pair, but also giving Gierse bottom-two pair. Gierse checked it over to Zeiter who put out a min-bet of 800,000. Gierse check-raised to 3.2 million and Zeiter made the call. The turn was the [poker card="2c"] and Gierse applied max pressure by shipping all-in. With no time left in his time back, Zeiter called with his pair of nines and needed help on the river to get back into it. The river came the [poker card="jd"], officially making Zeiter the runner-up for $957,859 and sealing the win for Gierse who collected $1,242,190. GGPoker Super MILLION$ Final Table Results Marius Gierse - $1,242,190 Diego ‘Ushuaia1’ Zeiter - $957,859 Wiktor Malinowski - $738,610 Ole Schemion - $569,546 Audrius ‘Audrii’ Stakelis - $439,180 Daniel ‘Vanessa23’ Montagnolli - $439,180 ‘TonyLin008’ - $261,138 Neel ‘Neel’ Joshi - $201,365 Mikita Badziakouski - $155,273
  3. British mixed game specialist Benny Glaser won his fourth WSOP bracelet of a career defined by his World Series of Poker greatness as he closed out the heads-up battle to seal victory in the $10,000-entry Razz Championship. Glaser the Closer as Carlton Finally Overcome Taking his seat on the final day of the event, Glaser had only one opponent to topple, after Everett Carlton had fought so hard yesterday that the finale had to be delayed by 24 hours. But in the end, there was no denying the British pro, who bagged his fourth WSOP bracelet after an hour-long rollercoaster heads-up battle to the finish. Carlton took Glaser’s lead at one point and threatened to put himself in a dominant position for victory. Instead, Glaser chipped away at his opponent before taking the lead back and grinding his opponent down to the point where he had simply no chips left to fight with. It was a powerful display of exactly the skills that Glaser has established over so many years playing specifically WSOP Events at the Rio. After the win, Glaser thanked his supporters online as he celebrated his latest incredible mixed game victory. https://twitter.com/BennyGlaser/status/1461897898124353537 WSOP 2021 Event #78 $10,000 Razz Championship Final Table Results: Benny Glaser - $274,693 Everett Carlton - $169,773 Yuri Dzivielevski - $123,254 Erik Sagstrom - $90,859 John Monnette - $68,025 Yehuda Buchalter - $51,739 Erik Seidel - $39,987 Phil Hellmuth - $31,411 Schemion Wins First-Ever Bracelet After Long Wait Ends in Style German poker superpower Ole Schemion won his first-ever WSOP bracelet in the $1,979-entry Poker Hall of Fame Bounty event. At a final table where he went into play with a huge lead, Schemion used his stack and his considerable skills to get the job done in stunning fashion in the Thunderdome at the Rio. With six players making the final day, it didn’t take long for that number to be reduced. Jerry Wong busted in sixth place to Schemion when Wong shoved pre-flop with [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Jc"] and Schemion called with [poker card="6s"][poker card="6c"]. The board of [poker card="As"][poker card="Ah"][poker card="7d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="Ac"] saw Schemion win another important hand and increase his lead over the remaining four players. James Alexander busted in fifth place for $37,965 when he moved all-in pre-flop with [poker card="As"][poker card="7s"] and Marc Rivera called with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="Jc"]. The board of [poker card="Ks"][poker card="9d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="Kh"][poker card="6s"] saw Alexander exit, but his conqueror only laddered one more rung, busting in fourth for $52,569. Rivera’s final hand was a call from Schemion’s shove with [poker card="3c"][poker card="2c"]. Rivera was way ahead with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9d"], but while the flop of [poker card="Qh"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"] kept him ahead and the turn card of [poker card="Qd"] was safe, the [poker card="4h"] on the river gave Schemion the straight and sent the Philippines player home. Minutes later, Giovani Torre busted in third place to send play heads-up. Schemion shoved once again, moving all-in with [poker card="Td"][poker card="8d"] and getting a call from Torre with [poker card="Jh"][poker card="6h"]. The flop of [poker card="Jd"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2d"] looked to have all but locked the hand up apart from diamonds for the Portuguese player, but an incredible runout of a [poker card="Ts"] turn and [poker card="Tc"] gave Schemion trips instead to send Torre to the cash desk with a payout slip worth $73,175. Heads-up, Schemion had eight times his opponents stack, and it took no time at all after a short break for the event to conclude in the German’s favor. Canadian player Ben Underwood had made it all the way to second place, but his [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Jd"] couldn’t catch Schemion’s [poker card="Ad"][poker card="5s"] as a board of [poker card="As"][poker card="Ac"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4h"] gave the German the top prize of $172,499 and Underwood a runner-up result worth $106,618. WSOP 2021 Event #79 $1,979 Hall of Fame Bounty Final Table Results: Ole Schemion - $172,499 Benjamin Underwood - $106,618 Giovani Torre - $74,175 Marc Rivera - $52,569 James Alexander - $37,965 Jerry Wong - $27,951 In Event #80, the third bracelet of four to be won on a mammoth day of action went to Robert Cowan as an all-British heads-up played out in the Amazon Room at the Rio. At the six-handed final table, reached after the elimination of WSOP 2021 Event #80 $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha Final Table Results: Robert Cowan - $280,916 Robert Emmerson - $173,613 Uri Reichenstein - $116,106 Dylan Weisman - $79,368 William Benson - $55,485 Karel Mokry - $39,688 An exciting conclusion to the $800 Deepstack Event #81 saw Jason Wheeler take home his first-ever WSOP bracelet after many years on the professional poker circuit. On a day where Will givens held the lead going into the action, 121 players played down to a winner in dramatic fashion. After players such as the aforementioned Givens (39th for $4,605) joined other like Justin Lapka (47th for $3,920) and Melanie Weisner (66th for $2,933) on the rail, the unofficial final table was reached in record time, with Wheeler the shortest stack of ten. Doubling up quickly with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9d"] against the [poker card="As"][poker card="Jd"] of Antoine Goutard, however, Wheeler grabbed some chips and more importantly momentum as he began his ascent to the top of the leaderboard. After Maxwell Sabel busted in 10th place, Robert Hill busted in ninth place for $18,968 when his [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Jd"] couldn’t catch the pocket kings of Julian Velasquez on a queen high board after the chips all went in pre-flop. John O’Neal busted in eight for $24,165 when Goutard held again, his [poker card="Js"][poker card="Jd"] standing up to O’Neal’s [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Kd"]. When Ralph Massey busted to Velasquez in seventh place, his [poker card="Ad"][poker card="6s"] dominated and defeated by the Colombian’s [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Qd"], an ace and two queens on the board saw Velasquez take the lead, but with players like Garry Gates and Wheeler himself chipping up, the power dynamics at the table were shifting every orbit. Shelok Wong busted in sixth place for $40,376 when his ace-high couldn’t top Velasquez’ top pair on the turn, and Goutard busted very soon after when his [poker card="Th"][poker card="Ts"] was shot down by Diogo Veiga’s [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Qd"], leving the French player on the rail in fifth for $52,943. Garry Gates knows plenty about finishing fourth in a major tournament, as he came in that exact position in the Main Event just a couple of years ago, but he will regret this bust-out almost as much. ‘Not finishing fourth again’ was never said by Gates, however, and it was a good job as his [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Qh"] was shot down by Velasquez’ [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8s"] on a board where an ace on the turn ended the drama before 5th street fell. Gates cashed for an impressive $70,077, and he was joined on the rail soon after by Veiga, whose third-place finish earned him $93,627. Veiga’s [poker card="Ac"]6c] didn’t hold as Wheeler’s [poker card="Kh"][poker card="9s"] flopped the world on a board of [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Jc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"]. Heads-up, it was Velasquez who took an early lead, but Wheeler was not to be denied, getting there with an all-in with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="4c"]. Velasquez called with [poker card="6d"][poker card="6c"] and was favorite to lift the title, but a board of [poker card="5s"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="4d"] saw Wheeler jumping for the ‘wheel’ straight he made on the river. Shortly afterwards, Wheeler’s [poker card="Ac"][poker card="As"] held with ease against Velasquez’ [poker card="Ah"][poker card="2c"] as an ace on the turn ended all hope the Colombian had, his tournament devastated by the closing two major hands of the event. WSOP 2021 Event #81 $800 Deepstack Final Table Results: Jason Wheeler - $202,274 Julian Velasquez - $126,252 Diogo Veiga - $93,627 Garry Gates - $70,077 Antoine Goutard - $52,943 Shelok Wong - $40,376 Ralph Massey - $31,087 John O'Neal - $24,165 Robert Hill - $18,968 In the $250,000 Super High Roller event, just five players made the money and lasted to the final day’s play, with Spanish sensation Adrian Mateos a runaway chip leader with more chips than his four remaining opponents combined. With a busy day of action in the event that the elite of poker will be talking about for weeks, Adrian Mateos took the lead and dominated the latter stages as just five players made the money, with over $3 million up top for tomorrow’s winner. Michale Addamo led the field when Day 2 kicked off, but he and Ali Imsirovic saw their control of the field evaporate as the Spanish pro Mateos took over. With Ben Heath maintaining third place from Day 1 by the end of Day 2, he and the other three opponents, Keith Tilston, Seth Davies and John Kincaid, will all be threats to Mateos. Right up until German crusher Christoph Vogelsang’s elimination on the money bubble in sixth, though, Mateos was in control. It will take some performance to stop the young European superstar winning what would be his fourth WSOP bracelet at the age of just 27 years old. WSOP 2021 Event #82 $250,000 Super High Roller Final Table Chipcounts: Adrian Mateos - 25,500,000 Keith Tilston - 8,900,000 Ben Heath - 6,500,000 Seth Davies - 4,550,000 John Kincaid - 3,925,000 A Day 1a of drama in the Closer saw Turkish player Osman Ihlamur bag the chip lead with 1,765,000 chips by the end of play. With players such as Dimitar Danchev (1,635,000) and Wesley Belding (1,620,000) on his tail, Ihlamur will not have it easy on Day 2, but with just 25 players surviving from 802 entries, it was a fast-paced finish to the action as 121 players cashed. Big names such as Kenny Hallaert (1,250,000) and Chris Moorman (1,250,000) will be a threat when Day 2 takes place, but before that happens, there is tomorrow’s Day 1b to consider, where some players who busted bigger buy-in tournaments over the last couple of days will be doing everything they can to bag up one last Day 2 stack and close out the 2021 World Series of Poker in style. WSOP 2021 Event #83 $1,500 The Closer Top 10 Chipcounts: Osman Ihlamur - 1,765,000 Dimitar Danchev - 1,635,000 Wesley Belding - 1,620,000 Chris Moorman - 1,250,000 Kenny Hallaert - 1,250,000 Gergely Kulcsar - 1,200,000 Martins Adeniya - 1,190,000 Joao Simao - 1,100,000 Bin Liu - 1,000,000 Stephen Song - 940,000 An exciting first day of action in the $50,000 Pot Limit Omaha Event #84 saw Hungarian player Laszlo Bujtas (1,980,000) bag up the chip lead as Josh Arieh (1,355,000) continued his heater in pursuit of the WSOP Player of the Year title. Ben Lamb (1,755,000) is second in chips, but it is the appearance of Arieh in fourth place of the 33 survivors from 85 entries that catches the eye. The level of players in this $50,000-entry event is really high, and players like Jake Schindler, Dan Shak and Mark Herm all busted along the way as players such as Daniel Negreanu (1.12m) and Dan Cates (1.045m) both made the top 10. With others such as Chance Kornuth (625,000), Shaun Deeb (520,000) and Anthony Zinno (420,000) all still involved, players will battle attempt to win what will be a prestigious bracelet to claim late in the 2021 World Series of Poker. WSOP 2021 Event #84 $50,000 Pot Limit Omaha Top 10 Chipcounts: Laszlo Bujtas - 1,980,000 Ben Lamb - 1,755,000 Alexander Petersen - 1,355,000 Josh Arieh - 1,355,000 Jared Bleznick - 1,270,000 Alex Aleksandrovski - 1,130,000 Daniel Negreanu - 1,125,000 Jeremy Ausmus - 1,125,000 Scott Seiver - 1,070,000 Dan Cates - 1,045,000 After a stunning Main Event win, the new world champion Koray Aldemir tackled some of the fans’ thoughts in an intriguing post on Twitter. https://twitter.com/kooraay90/status/1461900448646848514 Phil Hellmuth is determined to chase down the top of the Player of the Year leaderboard and claim one of the only titles the ‘Poker Brat’ hasn’t won in what has been a glittering career. https://twitter.com/phil_hellmuth/status/1461670956775051270 He’s not going to have it easy, however, after the man at the top of the chart came out of 2021 WSOP ‘retirement’ to make a sprint for the line with just a few days of competition left. Can you imagine if these two are heads up for a bracelet late in the series? We can dream!
  4. Mixed game specialist Benny Glaser had struck out on a few occasions during the 2021 World Series of Poker. After consistently putting himself in the position to dominate in the mixed game events he knows so well, however, the British player is just one player from victory in the $10,000 Razz Championship at the Rio in Las Vegas. Heads-Up For $10K Razz Championship As the final table of nine was set, both Seidel and Hellmuth had spun up their small stacks. Glaser had added a little to his pile, but remained some way behind the chip leader, who at that stage was John Monnette, who already has a 2021 WSOP bracelet to his name. He added a bit more when he eliminated Brad Ruben in ninth place for $25,086, before Hellmuth exited in eighth place, with Yehuda Buchalter’s nine-six the winning hand. Despite winning that hand, Buchalter was still short, but it would be the nine-time WSOP bracelet winner Seidel who was the next player to hit the rail. Busting after a period of play that saw Glaser rise through the ranks and take the chip lead, Seidel lost out to Dzivielevski before Buchalter busted to the Brazilian too. At the next break, it was Swedish player Erik Sagstrom who led the final five, but that situation flipped as Glaser took control of the table, constantly putting pressure on all four players to the extent that one hour later, he had 3.7 million chips, more than double Dzivielevski’s total and vastly more than anyone else, with the other three remaining players super short. John Monnette busted in fifth place, and shortly afterward, Sagstrom was following him to the rail, the second victim in a row of Everett Carlton, who was the player pushing for victory. Dzivielevski busted in third place after Carlton took him out, but the winner of that hand was still well behind Glaser. That was until a series of pots balanced things out and with Glaser holding a slim lead, that was where play ended for the night as the two men agree to come back to the Rio at 3pm local time to conclude the battle for the bracelet. WSOP 2021 Event #78 $10,000 Razz Championship Chipcounts Benny Glaser - 3,990,000 Everett Carlton - 2,570,000 Prizes 3. Yuri Dzivielevski - $123,254 4. Erik Sagstrom - $90,859 5. John Monnett - $68,025 6. Yehuda Buchalter - $51,739 7. Erik Seidel - $39,987 8. Phil Hellmuth - $31,411 9. Brad Ruben - $25,086 Schemion Takes Massive Lead In Hall of Fame Bounty The final six players have been reached in the WSOP Hall of Fame Bounty event, which costs $1,979 to enter, and featured players who had won the WSOP Main with a year-appropriate bounty on their heads. With the final table playing out tomorrow, it is the German player Ole Schemion who lead the way, with a big lead of 6.9 million to his nearest rival Giovani Torre, who has 2.7 million. With every other player having 1.5 million or less, Schemion has a huge lead, and is on the brink of winning what would be his first-ever WSOP bracelet despite a career that has seen him win $16m in live events alone. It’s not only Schemion who would be winning his first bracelet as all six remaining players have yet to win gold. On the penultimate day, players such as Michael Gathy, Christian Pham, Maria Lampropulos, and Joao Vieira all busted, so missed out on the $172,499 top prize. WSOP 2021 Event #79 $1,979 Hall of Fame Bounty Final Table Chipcounts: Ole Schemion - 6,905,000 Giovani Torre - 2,720,000 James Alexander - 1,530,000 Jerry Wong - 1,200,000 Benjamin Underwood - 975,000 Marc Rivera - 755,000 Addamo Ahead After $250K Super High Roller Day 1 In the $250,000-entry Super High Roller event, there were 25 total entries, including two rebuys from Jason Koon and Justin Bonomo as Koon bust but Bonomo survived to a top ten finish. In all, 10 levels of play saw just 15 players with their names already in the seat draw for Day 2 after completing Day 1, with Michael Addamo (4,965,000) and Ali Imsirovic (4,875,000) clear at the top. Elsewhere in the top ten, Ben Heath bagged up 3,545,000 as he spent much of the day in pursuit of whichever leader was wearing the metaphorical yellow jersey at the time. Daniel Negreanu (2,305,000) had a strong day at the felt, with Stephen Chidwick doing the same, bagging up slightly more with 2,540,000 chips. Players to bust included the luckless Koon, who sunk $500,000 but ended the day with nothing, while John Lilic busted first and didn’t re-enter. Dan Smith was one of the leaders at one point but lost his stack to Ali Imsirovic late in the day. WSOP 2021 Event #82 $250,000 Super High Roller Top 10 Chipcounts: Michael Addamo - 4,965,000 Ali Imsirovic - 4,875,000 Benjamin Heath - 3,545,000 Adrian Mateos - 3,420,000 Timofey Kuznetsov - 2,890,000 Christoph Vogelsang - 2,860,000 Stephen Chidwick - 2,540,000 Daniel Negreanu - 2,305,000 Justin Bonomo - 2,285,000 Sam Soverel - 2,190,000 Weisman, Coleman, Rheem Crack $3K Top 10 In Event #80, Robert Cowan grabbed the lead as the British player bagged up 140 big blinds with which to attack the final day of the $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha showdown. With players such as Dylan Weisman (1,475,000), David Coleman (1,250,000), and Chino Rheem (1,000,000) all in the top seven, it is sure to be a very exciting final day, where the winner will receive $280,916. With 122 players starting the penultimate day, only 75 made the money. Those landing on the wrong side of that divide included Ari Engel, Jake Schwartz, Esther Taylor, Ali Imsirovic, Brett Richey, Noah Bronstein, and Mark Birdsall, with both final two players on that list bubbling when they exited the event in the same hand. All of the following made money, as Daniel Negreanu, Phil Laak, Christian Harder, Ben Yu, and Gabriel Andrade all claimed profit but missed a very deep run in the event, which has seen 496 players put up the $3,000 buy-in, creating a prize pool worth over $1.3 million.

His stack of 2,440,000 chips looked down from a great height on Marc Lange (1,865,000) and William Blais (1,500,000) in his slipstream, while Jason Wheeler (1.27m) also made the top 10. Just 289 players made the money and 121 survived the 1,921 entries, meaning players such as Pat Lyone, Brett Apter, 2021 bracelet winner DJ Alexander, Joseph Cheong, Shaun Deeb and last year’s world champion Damian Salas all bowed out.

  5. It was just two months ago that Anatoly Filatov celebrated a results surge that lifted him to more than $10 million in career online earnings. Since that time, the Russian poker superstar’s heater has continued and it all culminated with a victory in the massive $10,300 GGPoker Super MILLION$ Main Event where he bested a field of 748 runners to collect a career-high online cash of $1,193,332 and a WSOP Circuit ring. READ: Career Year of Online Success Takes Anatoly Filatov To $10 Million For Filatov, the past two months have brought him some of the best results of his career. In addition to this week’s seven-figure score, he picked up a fourth-place finish in the GGPoker $25K SHR Championship for $558,512 on August 30 and then followed it up a week later with a third-place result in the September 7 edition of the Super MILLION$ for another $250,053 - both top 5 career results prior to this current win. His success has pushed him into worldwide top 10 rankings where he currently sits at a career-high of #7 in the world. Although he didn’t start the day with the chip lead, he was sitting just a couple of big blinds off the lead. He quickly took control of the final table, amassed a top stack that he only lost for a short time during heads-up. In the end, Filatov sealed the deal and now has more than $12.2 million in online earnings. Roughly 15 minutes into the start of play, with the blinds at 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante), the action folded to the short-stacked ‘Graf Tekkel’ on the button who picked up [poker card="js"][poker card="jh"]. After ‘Graf Tekkel’ moved all-in for his final ten big blinds, it was folded to Filatov in the big blind who looked at [poker card="ac"][poker card="8d"] and decided to make the call. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"][poker card="4h"] put Filatov’s top pair in the lead which he held through the [poker card="9c"] turn and the [poker card="td"] river. Russia’s ‘Graf Tekkel’ bowed out in ninth place for $149,166. Just ten minutes later, as the blinds moved to 100,000/200,000 (25,000 ante), Ole Schemion was under the gun with just under ten big blinds when he open-shoved holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"]. In the cut off, Markus Leikkonen held [poker card="9d"][poker card="9c"] and made the call. The rest of the table got out of the way and pair were flipping for a 22 big blind pot. The board ran out [poker card="kc"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3s"][poker card="8d"] keeping Leikkonen’s pocket nines in front the entire time and ending Schemion’s day in eighth place for $193,445. Seven-handed play lasted the better part of 45 minutes as the blinds moved to 150,000/300,000 (35,000 ante). From the button, online poker legend Isaac Baron pushed his final 15 bigs in with his [poker card="kc"][poker card="8c"] prompting Austria’s Marius Gierse to move all-in as well with his [poker card="9s"][poker card="9d"] from the small blind. Leikkonen folded in the big blind and the cards were turned up with Baron’s tournament at risk. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3s"] offered Baron little help. When the turn came the [poker card="3d"], Baron was left looking for a king, but instead, it was the [poker card="5d"] and Baron hit the rail in seventh place for $250,867. Three hands later, a clash of huge hands took out the start-of-the-day chip leader Mark Radoja. From middle position, Gierse raised to 660,000 with the [poker card="5s"][poker card="5c"]. On the button, Filatov elected to just call holding [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"]. Then, in the small blind, Christian Rudolph also elected to just flat with his [poker card="js"][poker card="jc"]. When the action reached Radoja in the big blind, he made a move. He three-bet shipped all-in for just over 10 million. After Gierse folded, Filatov went into the tank and eventually shipped as well. Then it was Rudolph’s turn with pocket jacks, but he made a rather quick fold and Radoja was flipping against Filatov. The flop came [poker card="kh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8d"] and Radoja had his overcards as outs plus backdoor straight possibilities (blocked by Filatov). The [poker card="3h"] turn was a brick and Radoja was down to six outs. But the [poker card="4c"] hit the river and Radoja was eliminated in sixth for $325,334. Filatov soared to an overwhelming chip lead with five left as once again the play slowed down. Nearly two levels passed when at 200,000/400,000 (50,000 ante) Filatov felted another player. Brazil’s Pedro Garagnani picked up [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"] in the cutoff and raised it up to 2.4 million, leaving himself just four big blind behind. When it folded to Filatov in the big blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"], he raised enough that a call by Garagnani would put the Brazilian’s tournament life at risk. He did just that and the board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="jd"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="kd"] giving Filatov an unnecessary set to send Garagnani home in fifth place for $421,906. With the blinds as high as 250,000/500,000 (60,000 ante), Rudolph picked up [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"] under the gun and opened it up to 3.5 million. Right behind him, on the button, Gierse picked up [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"] and moved all-in for slightly more than Rudolph’s entire stack. Both blinds folded and Rudolph committed the rest of his chips. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5s"], giving Gierse top set and leaving Rudolph looking for runner-runner outs. The [poker card="qc"] was not one of them, and Rudolph was drawing dead to the [poker card="jd"] river. Rudolph walked with $547,145 for fourth place. Leikkonen and Gierse both had roughly 20 big blinds to Filatov’s massive stack of nearly 70 bigs. After taking a pot off Filatov, Gierse climbed to over 22 million putting him in position to deliver the final blow to Leikkonen. At 300,000/600,000 (75,000 ante) Filatov opened the button to 1.2 million with his [poker card="qs"][poker card="js"] and Gierse flat called from the small blind holding [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. Leikkonen looked at [poker card="4h"][poker card="4c"] and moved all-in for just over 11 million. After a short trip into the tank, Filatov decided to fold and Gierse quickly called. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2s"] offered Leikkonen little help, but it was the [poker card="9d"] turn that closed the door. The [poker card="7h"] was a meaningless river and Leikkonen, who started the day as the short stack, laddered to a third-place finish and a $709,559 payday. The knockout was huge for Gierse who has battled back to start heads-up play against Filatov in a near dead heat in chips. The pair battled back and forth and were nearly even once again, with Filatov holding a slight lead when the tournament ended on a setup. Filatov picked up [poker card="as"][poker card="ah"] on the button and raised it up to 1.4 million. Gierse, in the big blind, raised it up to 5.25 million with the [poker card="qs"][poker card="js"]. Filatov flatted his pocket aces and the flop came [poker card="qh"][poker card="8h"][poker card="6c"], providing all the action needed to bring an end to the tournament. Gierse led out for 3.5 million and Filatov called. The turn came the [poker card="3d"] and Gierse led again, this time for 9.4 million, leaving himself 18 million behind. A few seconds passed and Filatov shipped for 29 million and Gierse took just a few seconds before making the call for it all. The river came the [poker card="9s"], shipping the pot - and the tournament - to Filatov. Gierse ended up as the runner-up and walked with a stellar score of $920,184 while Anatoly Filatov collected a career-high online score of $1,193,332. Super MILLION$ WSOP Circuit Final Table Results Anatoly Filatov - $1,193,332 Marius Gierse - $920,184 Markus Leikkonen - $709, 559 Christian Rudolph - $547,145 Pedro Garagnani - $421,906 Mark Radoja - $325,334 Isaac Baron - $250,867 Ole Schemion - $193,445 ‘Graf Tekkel’ - $149,166
