  2. As we move into 2020, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of 2019. December saw one of the largest online poker tournaments ever, a new state regulating online poker, and Pennsylvania players getting their first taste of COOP action. MILLIONS Online Chopped Up Again For the second year in a row, the partypoker MILLIONS Online was chopped up by the final two players. This time, 'frenchsniperrr’ and ‘Lucio’ each ended up with a $2.2 million score. The official winner, ‘frenchsniperrr’, banked $2,259,113.58 for first place while ‘Lucio’ took $2,222,511.43 as the runner-up. After Day 1A finished, all eyes were on 'jiggidyjigjohn', who finished with the chip lead. A partypoker promotion offered the Day 1A chip leader a $1 million bonus if they went on to win the event. Unfortunately for 'jiggidyjigjohn', they had to settle for a 42nd place finish for $52,725. The event drew 2,109 runners to build a total prize pool of $21,090,000 to beat the guarantee and make it the second-largest online poker tournament prize pool of all time behind only the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online event. The buy-in for the 2019 event was bumped up from $5,300 to $10,300 - one of a handful of things that PocketFives Editor in Chief Lance Bradley believes need to be changed for the 2020 event in an effort to break the record for largest online poker tournament ever. Alex Foxen Wins WPT Five Diamond to Clinch GPI POY Alex Foxen captured the 2018 GPI Player of the Year title and spent all of 2019 doing his best to defend it. He ended up doing just that in dramatic fashion. Foxen captured the World Poker Tour Five Diamond Poker Classic for $1.694 million and more than enough points to lock up a second consecutive poker GPI POY title. The unlimited re-entry event drew 1,035 runners to break the record for largest Five Diamond ever. “It feels, I don’t know… surreal,” Foxen said in the moments following the win. “It’s kind of hard to put into words, but it feels amazing. The last time I got to this spot, I was a little bit disappointed in the way that I played heads up. It’s just incredible to get the opportunity again and be fortunate enough to pull out the win. I don’t have words.” Runner-up Toby Joyce collected $1,120,040 for his efforts. This was the fourth consecutive year that the Five Diamond field saw an increase. Season XV had 791 entries, Season XVI had 812, and Season XVII last year had 1,001. Pennsylvania Online Poker Players Enjoy First Big Series Just weeks after the launch of online poker in Pennsylvania, Keystone State grinders got their first taste of what a big online series was like. The inaugural PokerStars Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker actually kicked off in late November, but most of the events took place in December and PokerStars executives had to be happy with the overall turnout. PokerStars actually bumped up the overall guarantees for the series twice. First on December 2, going from $1 million to $1.125 million, and then again on December 4, with another $125,000 being added to the prize pools. The Main Event was won by 'Gyeao' for $31,335.64. The event had a $150,000 guarantee but the 640 entries in the $300 buy-in event helped the prize pool balloon to $179,200. PACOOP was the first time that some of the best online poker players in the state got a chance to show their mettle. Six players, lead by 'Gyea0', managed to earn more than $20,000 over the course of the entire series. Michigan Legalizes Online Poker - For Real In late 2018, online poker players in Michigan were excited and then heartbroken when the Michigan legislature passed a bill to legalize online poker only to have then-Governor Rick Snyder veto the bill out of spite just days before leaving office. It took nearly 12 months, but another bill was passed on December 10 and then signed into law by Governor Gretchen Whitmer on December 28. This made Michigan the sixth state to pass online poker legislation, joining Nevada, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
  3. The final day of the second-largest online poker tournament ever ended in an anti-climactic and yet completely expected fashion. The final two players in the partypoker MILLIONS Online, 'frenchsniperrr' and 'Lucio' agreed to a deal that saw each of them lock up a minimum of $2.2 million each. Thanks to to having the bigger chip stack, 'frenchsniperrr' banked $2,259,113.58 for first place while 'Lucio' took $2,222,511.43 as the official runner-up. Discussion on a deal actually began with three players remaining but 'nomeansyes' turned down the opportunity. Not long after, with blinds of 8M/16M, 'nomeansyes' moved all in from the small blind for 224,032,356 with [poker card="qd"][poker card="js"] only to have 'frenchsniperrr' call from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"]. The board ran out [poker card="kh"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="tc"][poker card="7s"] to eliminate 'nomeansyes' in third place for a $1,370,850 score. That hand was the last one played in the tournament. Within a minute of 'nomeansyes' being eliminated, 'frenchsniperrr' and 'Lucio' agreed to their deal and the tournament was over. 'Rank 1 Global', who began the day as the chip leader with 27 players remaining, finished in fourth place for $1,107,225 while European Poker Tour creator and Team partypoker Pro John Duthie finished in fifth place for $869,962.50. With a $10,300 buy-in, the 2,109-player field created a prize pool of $21,090,000 to make it the second-largest online tournament prize pool ever. The only tournament with a larger prize pool was the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS which awarded $21,835,000 after 4,367 players paid the $5,300 buy-in.

  4. For the next nine days, all eyes will be on 'jiggidyjigjohn' as the $20,000,000 guaranteed partypoker MILLIONS Online plays down to a winner. That's because 'jiggidyjigjohn' finished Day 1A of the event as the chip leader and is now eligible for the $1 million bonus should they go on to win the tournament without making a deal. Finishing Day 1A with 20,120,995 in chips, 'jiggidyjigjohn' narrowly edged out fellow grinder 'Triple Sexy' for the overall chip lead. 'Triple Sexy' ended up with 20,027,055 in chips on the day. No other player crested the 20,000,000 mark. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] There were 709 players on Sunday, the first of four starting flights in the $20,000,000 guaranteed event. In an effort to encourage players to take a shot on Day 1A, partypoker offered a $1 million bonus in the event that the Day 1A chip leader goes on to win the tournament. 115 players made it through Day 1A including notable online pros Kenny 'SpaceyFCB' Hallaert, 'Junglemandan', the current #3-ranked player in the world Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar, and Mike 'GoRapsGoEh' Leah. Team partypoker also had a solid showing with Anatoly 'NL_Profit' Filatov finishing inside the top 10 chip counts. He was joined by fellow ambassadors Isaac Haxton and Joni 'JJouhki' Jouhkimainen in advancing to Day 2.
