  1. In a series of Tweets, poker pro Olivier livb112Busquet (pictured) seemingly called out the "old guard" of poker. He Tweeted last week, "This idea that current pros 'owe' some past group of pros for paving the way or growing the game is just nonsense." According to a later Tweet, the one person who could receive an exemption from Busquet's blanket statement is 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by William Hill Poker, one of the largest skins on the iPoker Network. The poker room offers a generous welcome package including a 200% deposit bonus up to $2,000 and a superb VIP program. Visit William Hill today! --- Moneymaker garnered support from several posters on Twitter, including 2010 November Niner Joseph subiime Cheong, who wrote, "Everyone owes Chris for winning with such an awesome last name." Busquet clarified, "If anyone should be 'thankful,' it's pros who were at the right place at the right unique time and made money without having to be good at poker." "Late Night Poker" host Jesse May responded, "But comparing poker skill in 2014 to skill in 2003 is like harping on Newton for being dominated by Einstein. It's relative." Haralabos Voulgaris said, "Right place right time and a real willingness to be camera whores can and did pay off back then." Voulgaris promptly called out Phil Laak and Antonio Esfandiari for "going through the Foxwoods buy-in line over and over again to make sure cameras were present." You can check out the full responses to Busquet's Tweet here: In response to Busquet's ambassador comments, one person called out his friend, Dan Colman, who has come under fire for ducking the media and refusing to promote poker while at the same time sounding off on message boards about the evils of the game ad nauseam. Another poster singled out Daniel Negreanu as being a face of poker, but Busquet responded, "Seems like you're assuming pros are doing this stuff for free? Usually, they are paid. It's part of their contract to promote, etc." Busquet has done a variety of poker broadcasting and won the Estrellas Poker Tour High Roller Event in August for $1.1 million. He has over $6 million in live tournament winnings to his credit, according to the Hendon Mob, along with another $359,000 online. What do you think? How much do the rising stars of poker, and the community as a whole, owe the "old guard"? And who should be considered an ambassador of the game? Leave a comment here and let us know.

  2. In 2013, the Millionaire Maker debuted at the World Series of Poker (WSOP), the goal of which was to give those who couldn't shell out five-figure buy-ins the chance to play in a massive live tournament for a whopper of a potential prize. --- 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. --- A total of 6,343 entrants bought in to that first Millionaire Maker, creating the largest single-day starting field in WSOP history. Benny Chen took the title and nearly $1.2 million. The following year, even more people showed up – 7,977 – and Jonathan Dimming won the top prize of over $1.3 million. This year, the numbers are down, but at 7,275 registrants, it is still a larger Millionaire Maker than the original. What has become interesting about this one is that while the tournament was originally designed to give relative low-rollers a shot at the big money, the remaining field of 17 people going into Day 3 of the event features a number of well-known, successful players. Many such players tend to focus on the higher buy-in events, but the possible payday for a cheap buy-in in a field filled with what one would assume are lesser-skilled players can be too tempting to pass up. Let's take a look at a few of the notable players who have waded through the 7,275 player field to the edge of the final table. Seventeen players remain. 2nd Place – 5,950,000 chips – Erick Lindgren Lindgren (pictured) was one of the stars of the poker boom, one of the Full Tilt pack whose face was all over poker television. Black Friday was the catalyst of a downward spiral for Lindgren, though, as the lack of income from the Full Tilt combined with a sports betting addiction put him in a massive, multi-million dollar financial hole. Reports surfaced in 2012 from many fellow poker players that he had not made good on betting debts and, earlier this year, Rational FT Enterprises sued him for $2.5 million for disputed money transfers from Full Tilt. Lindgren has $10 million in lifetime earnings, but aside from two $600,000+ cashes in 2013 (including a WSOP bracelet), he has been relatively silent at the tables for the last few years. 4th Place – 5,150,000 chips – Olivier livb112 Busquet A very successful tournament player, Busquet has over $6.1 million in live earnings and is currently ranked 30th in the Global Poker Index. His most recent significant score came last August when he won the European Poker Tour Barcelona Super High Roller for €896,434. Busquet is probably best known by poker fans as a commentator for ESPN's WSOP broadcasts. 6th Place – 3,300,000 chips – Mike Sexton Not much needs to be said about Sexton (pictured at top), the "Ambassador of Poker" and 2009 Poker Hall of Fame inductee. He is one of the most popular faces in poker history. Though many have had more success than Sexton – he only has one WSOP bracelet – he is one of the most important figures in the game, helping popularize poker during the boom as a PartyPoker spokesperson and commentator for WPT broadcasts. 16th Place – 1,340,000 chips – Andrew luckychewy Lichtenberger Lichtenberger (pictured) first made his name online under nickname luckychewy, amassing $2.4 million in tournament earnings and making it into the top 100 of the PocketFives Rankings. As recently as May, he nabbed a six-figure score, finished second in a SCOOP event for $135,300. He has made the transition into a very successful live tournament player, earning more than $6.2 million in live events, according to TheHendonMob.com. He currently ranks 71st on GPI. His best live cash came last December, when he won the $100,000 Alpha8 at the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, a $1.77 million score. Lichtenberger is seeking his first WSOP bracelet. Congrats to Hellmuth on his 14th bracelet! Stay tuned to PocketFives for the latest WSOP coverage, brought to you by Tournament Poker Edge. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  3. [caption width="640"] Ryan D'Angelo now has a WSOP bracelet to his name after winning the ,500 No Limit Deuce to Seven.[/caption] There were supposed to be two bracelets awarded Wednesday at the 2016 World Series of Poker, but Ryan D'Angelo ended up getting the spotlight all to himself. D'Angelo battled and beat John Monnette heads-up to win his event while the first $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event of the summer stopped with four players remaining and Michael Addamo leading. Event #6: Michael Addamo Leads Final Four in $1,500 No Limit Hold'em You could say the last few months have been pretty good to Michael Addamo. The Australian poker pro won just over $140 when he won a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker event and now he finds himself leading the final four of a WSOP bracelet event with $438,417 and the bracelet on the line. The $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event was supposed to finish on Wednesday night but hit the 'hard stop' just after midnight PT. Addamo ended the day with 6,595,000 chips - more than the combined total of the two players right behind him, Davis Aalvik and Peter Eichhardt. Aalvik finished with 3,630,000 while Eighhardt bagged up 2,640,000. 2010 WSOP Main Event runner-up John Racener has the shortest stack with 2,490,000. The day began with 36 players still in contention for the title. Justin Young, who started the day with the chip lead, was eliminated in 22nd place for $13,786. WSOP Circuit all-time wins leader Alexandru Masek took home the same payout for his 20th place finish. Matt Berkey finished 18th for $17,134, his first cash of the 2016 WSOP. Anthony Zinno made the final table but was eliminated in eighth place for $45,582. Play resumes at Noon PT and will play down to a champion. Final Four Chip Counts Mike Addamo - 6,595,000 Davis Aalvik - 3,630,000 Peter Eichhardt - 2,640,000 John Racener - 2,490,000 Event #7: Ryan D'Angelo Beats John Monnette Heads Up in $1,500 No Limit Deuce to Seven Ryan 'g0lfa' D'Angelo overcame a player considered one of the best Deuce to Seven players in the world to win his first bracelet Wednesday night. D'Angelo defeated John Monnette to win the $1,500 No Limit Deuce to Seven event and $92,338. D'Angelo and Monnette were responsible for all of the eliminations at the final table. D'Angelo sent Alex Dovzhenko packing in sevneth place and a few minuteslater Todd Barlow, Konstantin Maslak and Dan 'djk123' Kelly fell at the hands of Monnette. Three-handed play lasted 90 minutes before D'Angelo eliminated Tom Franklin to set up heads up play. When heads up play began D'Angelo held 85% of the chips in play and he needed just 30 minutes to get the rest. “I feel like it all came together here in this tournament. I felt really centered throughout this tournament. The cards came my way," D'Angelo said. "It was like the perfect tournament, in a way. I was never at serious risk. I was able to pick up pots here and there. It’s such a fun game.” After his victory, D'Angelo praised Monnette. “(John) is obviously a terrific high-stakes player. He was definitely my toughest opponent," D’Angelo said. "There were surely some good players. Dan Kelly – he’s another tough one. It was tough to see him at the final table. He has a great track record and he’s good at all the games, so it was good to see him go out earlier. I’d say those two players were the toughest, probably.” Monnette, who has two WSOP bracelets to his credit, has now finished second in a WSOP event three times. The previous two runner-up performances came against David 'Bakes' Baker and Phil Ivey. Final Table Payouts Ryan D'Angelo - $92,338 John Monnette - $57,061 Tom Franklin - $38,582 Dan Kelly - $26,632 Konstantin Maslak - $18,775 Todd Barlow - $13,524 Alex Dovzhenko - $9,959 Event #8: Ben Ponzio Looking for Bracelet #2 in $1,500 HORSE Day 2 of the $1,500 HORSE event saw the field go from 202 player to just 20. Leading the pack with 837,000 chips is bracelet winner Ben Ponzio. But the group right behind, not surprisingly, includes a number of talented players. Justin Bonomo(559,000), Noah Bronstein (456,000) and Ismael Bojang (362,000) sit second through forth. Other notables still in the hunt include Scotty Nguyen (270,000), Andre Akkari (236,000) and Maureen Feduniak (100,500). Matt Glantz is the shortest stack with just 60,000 to work with on Thursday. It took over one hour for the bubble to burst and get all remaining 117 players into the money. Some of the notables who cashed on Wednesday but were unable to survive include Jared Bleznick, Adam Owen, Ray Henson, five-time WSOP bracelet winner Berry Johnston, Brandon Cantu, Chris Klodnicki, Matt Vengrin and Rep Porter. Naoya Kihara, who began the day with the chip lead, was eliminated in 48th place. The final 20 players return to the felt at Noon PT to play down to a winner. Top 10 Chip Counts Ben Ponzio - 837,000 Justin Bonomo - 559,000 Noah Bronstein - 456,000 Ismael Bojang - 362,000 Christopher Vitch - 357,000 Nick Kost - 340,000 Georgios Sotiropoulos - 335,000 Ian Johns - 317,000 Craig Carrillo - 306,000 Connor Berkowitz - 302,000 Event #9: Olivier Busquet Highlights Final Four in $10K Heads Up Championship Olivier Busquet is considering by many to be one of the best heads-up tournament players in poker. He's proving those people correct with his run in the $10,000 Heads Up No Limit Hold'em Championship. Busquet, who has also had tremendous success recently in the heads-up Global Poker League matches, is one of four players left in contention of the bracelet and $320,574. Alex Luneau, John Smith and Alan Percal are the other three players remaining. Busquet beat Chance Kornuth, Jared Jaffee and Orlando Romero on Wednesday to advance. He'll face Alan Percal in the semi-finals. Percal beat Alan Wehbi, Konstantin Ramazanov and Benjamin Geisman to get to the semi-final. Alex Luneau beat Bobby Oboodi, former EPT Grand Final champ Adrian Mateos and Matthew Diehl to reach the semi-final where he will face off against John Smith. Smith, who finished 11th in this event in 2014, defeated Igor Yaroshevskyy, Antonio Esfandiari and Nicholas Yunis. The semi-final matches began at Noon PT with the finals scheduled for 3 PM PT. Event #10: Daniel Strelitz Bags Day 1 Chip Lead in $1,500 Six Max Day 1 of the $1,500 Six Max No Limit Hold'em event saw 1,477 players register but only 183 make it through the day. Daniel Strelitz managed to bag the biggest stack on Day 1, finishing with 250,800. Strelitz, alongwith Eric Afriat's 208,000, weret he only two players to finish above 200,000. Just days after watching his brother Robert win his fourth career bracelet and break the tie between the two, Michael Mizrachi finished with 163,100, good enough for sixth best. Former #1 ranked PocketFiver Fedor 'CrownUpGuy' Holz finished right behind Mizrachi with 150,000 on the button. Jesse Sylvia, Mike Watson, Simon Deadman, Matt Jarvis and Christian Harder are among some of the notables remaining in the field. The eventual champion walks away with the bracelet and $346,088. Top 10 Chip Counts Daniel Strelitz - 250,800 Eric Afriat - 208,000 Niccolo Steffanini - 187,900 Tom Cannuli - 179,800 Javier Garcirreynaldos - 178,100 Michael Mizrachi - 163,100 Fedor Holz - 150,000 Nick Rampone - 137,500 Phong Nguyen - 135,000 Mike Sowers - 133,000 Event #11: Bruno Fitoussi Leads Star-Studded Field in $10,000 Dealers Choice Another day, another $10,000 Championship event gets underway, this one involving a grand total of 19 different games. France's Bruno Fitoussihad the best Day 1 of the 118 players who registered, bagging up 318,700 at the end of the night. Right behind Fitoussi are two players with track records of WSOP success. Brandon Shack-Harris and Brian Hastings finished with 270,200 and 252,100 respectively. Dan Smith sits fourth while Jussi Nevanlinna, who finished sixth in this event last summer, rounds out the top five. Only 41 players surived the opening day. Other notables still in contention include James Obst, John Monnette, Mike Gorodinsky, Phil Hellmuth and Anthony Zinno. Top 10 Chip Counts Bruno Fitoussi - 318,700 Brandon Shack-Harris - 270,200 Brian Hastings - 252,100 Dan Smith - 247,000 Jussi Nevanlinna - 241,400 Philip Sternheimer - 241,400 Dmitry Chop - 232,400 Frank Kassela - 201,400 Richard Ashby - 196,300 Randy Ohel - 186,000

  5. If the 2019 World Series of Poker has any sort of theme, it might be centered around the great players how have eliminated the zero next to their personal bracelet count. While Day 1B of the Main Event was taking up most of the available tables on Thursday, two more talented and respected players picked up their first taste of WSOP victory. Juha Helppi Wins $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship Juha Helppi is an online poker OG. The 42-year-old Finnish pro has somehow managed to receive fewer accolades or hype during his career than fellow countrymen Patrik Antonius or Ilari Sahamies. That might change now though after Helppi beat Mike Lancaster heads-up to win the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship for $306,622 and a WSOP bracelet. “This means a lot to me to win a bracelet. It’s such a long journey,” Helppi said. The win comes 51 weeks after Helppi finished runner-up to Yaser Al-Keliddar in a $3,000 Six-Max No Limit Hold'em event. “Of course it feels great. I don’t feel that tired right now because it’s so exciting to play for a bracelet,” Helppi said. "I’ve been coming here since 2003." Lancaster earned a career-best $189,505 for finishing second. Josh Arieh, who just last week finished second in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, picked up a fifth-place finish for $53,095. Final Table Payouts Juha Helppi - $306,622 Mike Lancaster - $189,505 Tommy Hang - $133,718 Anthony Marsico - $96,272 Kevin Song - $70,750 Josh Arieh - $53,095 Kyle Ray - $40,709 Qinghai Pan - $31,902 Robert Como - $25,566 Joao Vieira Defeats Joe Cada to Ship $5,000 Six Max NLHE Joe Cada almost did it again. The 2009 WSOP Main Event champion came within a whisper of winning his fifth WSOP bracelet but Portugal's Joao Vieira had other ideas. Vieira, who had cashed six times this summer before this event, beat Cada heads-up to win his first WSOP bracelet. “In Portugal, we say that the finals are meant to be won. As soon as you get heads-up, it doesn't matter if it's Joe Cada, John Doe... it doesn't matter. At that point I'm just trying to compete, trying to do the best I can," Vieira said. "I made a big hand right away, and as soon as I took the lead, I tried to close the deal.” The 29-year-old recently made the decision to move from Portugal to London, England to escape the ringfenced online poker market. This past Spring he picked up two PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker titles and finished second on the leaderboard. “I just moved (London) really recently. Four months ago,” Vieira said. "It's a good place in terms of the tax situation there, and it's a good place to live. I have a lot of friends and family.” The win came with a $758,011 payday for Vieira. Cada, meanwhile, had to console himself with the $468,488 second-place prize money. This marks Cada's second career runner-up finish and eighth time winning more than $100,00. Last summer he finished fifth in the Main Event and then immediately entered, and won, the $1,500 Closer event. Final Table Payouts Joao Vieira - $758,011 Joe Cada - $468,488 Jamie O'Connor - $317,956 Pierre Calamusa - $219,468 Olivier Busquet - $154,112 Barry Hutter - $110,127
  6. Most of the poker world was focused on the start of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event on Wednesday, but there was plenty of other stuff going on on Wednesday including three brand new bracelet winners and another Championship event reached a final table. Jeremy Saderne Takes Down Mini Main Event The rail for the Mini Main Event was so raucous that some players in the Main Event complained. The noise was mostly for France's Jeremy Saderne as he won his first WSOP bracelet by beating Lula Taylor heads-up. "All of my friends were here. It was incredible," Saderne said. "I’ve never seen that before. It was better than Marseilles Stadium, in the south of France. I just want to say thank you to all of my friends. They gave me a lot of power and energy." Saderne earned $628,654 for the win while Taylor walked away with $388,284. Andres Korn, who started the day with the chip lead, picked up $287,219 for finishing in third place. Final Table Payouts Jeremy Saderne - $628,654 Lula Taylor - $388,284 Andres Korn - $287,219 Yi Ma - $214,047 Koji Takagi - $160,715 Stefan Widmer - $121,586 Philip Gildea - $92,686 Ben Alloggio - $71,199 James Stewart - $55,188 Rick Alvarado Outduels Mark Radoja for $888 Crazy Eights Title If Rick Alvarado has his way, the $888 Crazy Eights tournament would change its name to the Lucky #7 event. The 27-year-old Californian entered the Crazy Eights event seven times and turned that into an $888,888 cash and his first career bracelet. Alvarado started the final day as the third smallest stack with ten players left. He was convinced enough that it wasn't going to turn out the way it did that he told his mom not to bother coming to Las Vegas to be on his rail. “I told my mom not to worry about coming when I made the final ten because I was short-stacked. Then when I doubled up, she was like, 'Should I come?' I said, 'It's up to to you,' and then she talked to one of my friends and he said she should come. So she booked the flight this afternoon," Alvarado said. “She said she was running through the airport to catch it, and then my friend went and picked her up from the airport, not more than 20 or 30 minutes before I won the bracelet. She got here with five minutes to spare. She saw maybe three hands. I'm really happy that she was here in time.” Alvarado and Mark Radoja played just over 30 minutes of heads up before Alvarado won. Radoja, who won a bracelet in each 2011 and 2013, banked $548,888, also a career-high cash. Thomas Drivas was third for $409,888. 888poker Ambassador Vivian Saliba finished fourth for a career-best $308,888. Final Table Payouts Rick Alvarado - $888,888 Mark Radoja - $548,888 Thomas Drivas - $409,888 Vivian Saliba - $308,888 Aleksandras Rusinovas - $233,888 Patrick Clarke - $177,888 Vlad Darie - $136,888 Mario Hofler - $105,888 Brandon 'DrOctagon' Adams Wins $3,200 Online High Roller The largest buy-in online bracelet event on the 2019 schedule drew 593 entries and after 12 hours of play, Brandon 'DrOctagon' Adams emerged with a bracelet and a massive $411,561 payday. Adams beat Nabil Mohamed Abdien 'thebrownbear' Cardoso heads up for the win. Cardoso walked away with $253,643 for his runner-up finish. Vladimir 'stuey_haxton' Alexandrov took home $173,241 for finishing third. Former #1-ranked online poker player, Calvin Anderson, finished fifth for $85,449. Final Table Payouts Brandon 'DrOctagon' Adams - $411,561 Nabil Mohamed Abdien 'thebrownbear' Cardoso - $253,643 Vladimir 'stuey_haxton' Alexandrov - $173,241 Michael 'VinnyV' Vanier - $120,422 Calvin 'projector52' Anderson - $85,449 Norbert 'balkan500' Szecsi - $61,653 Lior 'morningowl' Orel - $45,429 Harsukhpaul 'MjMafia' Sangha - $34,071 lowrider71- $26,139 Joao Vieira Leads $5,000 Six Max Final Table Joao Vieira is considered by many of his peers to be one of the best tournament players in the world. His 2019 WSOP includes six cashes but nothing even close to a final table appearance. That narrative took a turn on Wednesday though as the Portuguese pro bagged up 7,635,000 and the chip leading heading into the final table of the $5,000 Six Max No Limit Hold'em event. If Vieira hopes to turn that chip lead into gold, he'll need to get past a talented group of opponents including Olivier Busquet, Joe Cada, and Barry Hutter. Jamie O'Connor finished Day 3 with a second biggest stack of 5,190,000. Busquet and Cada hold down the third and fourth spots with 4,050,000 and 3,105,000 respectively. Pierre Calamusa sits fifth with 2,700,000 and Hutter brings in the short stack with 1,265,000. Day 3 began with 28 players still in contention. Some of the notables who saw their run end a bit too early include Christopher Brammer, Chris Hunichen, Patrick Tardif, and Ankush Mandavia. The final table begins at Noon. Final Table Chip Counts Joao Vieira - 7,635,000 Jamie O'Connor - 5,190,000 Olivier Busquet - 4,050,000 Joe Cada - 3,105,000 Pierre Calamusa - 2,700,000 Barry Hutter - 1,265,000 Taylor Carroll Leads $500 Salute to Warriors Event Taylor Carroll finished Day 2 of the $500 Salute to Warriors sitting atop the chip counts with just eight players left. Carroll bagged up 13,525,000 and holds nearly double that of any other player. Susan Faber holds the second-best stack with 7,280,000 while Dean Yoon is third with 6,845,000. There were 287 players still alive at the start of the and 28 of the 279 who busted on Wednesday did so without picking up a cash. Once the bubble burst, the eliminations came at a quick clip. Some of the familiar faces that finished in the money but did not advance to the final table include Vinny Pahuja, Mike Sexton, DJ MacKinnon, and Ben Yu. The players now get July 4 off before returning on Friday to play to a winner. Final Table Chip Counts Taylor Carroll - 13,525,000 Susan Faber - 7,280,000 Dean Yoon - 6,845,000 Christopher Canan - 6,105,000 Robin Stark - 3,650,000 Kulwant Singh - 2,225,000 Jordan Knackstedt - 2,050,000 Jose Annaloro - 1,265,000 Mike Lancaster Leads $10K Limit Hold'em Championship Just 15 players remain in the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship with California's Mike Lancaster the only player with a seven-figure stack. Lancaster bagged up 1,201,000 on Day 2. Juha Helppi sits second with 986,000 and Josh Arieh, fresh off of his runner-up finish in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, sits third with 772,000. John Racener, Eli Elezra, and Andrew Brown highlight the notables still chasing this bracelet. James Obst busted in 16th place for his 10th cash of the 2019 WSOP. Action resumes at 2 PM PT.
