  3. [caption width="640"] Maria Lampropulos won the partypokerLIVE MILLIONS on Sunday at Dusk Till Dawn (partypoker photo)[/caption] The European Poker Tour waited until Season 3 to crown their first female champion. The World Poker Tour didn’t have a woman win an open event until Season XV. PartypokerLIVE, the new live tournament series backed by partypoker, only had to wait until their second event. Maria Lampropulos beat Jacob Mulhern heads up to win the partypokerLIVE MILLIONS Dusk Till Dawn event and earn a cool £1,000,000 ($1,284,000 US). The £5,000 buy-in event attracted a field 1,240 players for a total prize pool of £6,017,395 - just a little over three buy-ins greater than the £6 million guarantee. The final table of eight actually included two female players. Lampropulos began the day third in chips, while Katie Swift was right behind her in fourth. It took just under an hour for the first elimination and it marked the start of Lampropulos’ incredible run to the title. With blinds of 2.5M/5M (500K), Lampropulos raised to 11,000,000 from the cutoff before Neel Murthy raised to 31,000,000 from the big blind. Lampropulos called to see a flop of [poker card="th"][poker card="9h"][poker card="2h"]. Murthy lead out for 22,000,000 and Lampropulos called. The turn was the [poker card="4c"] and Murthy moved all in for 83,500,000. Lampropulos called and tabled [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"] while Murthy showed [poker card="7h"][poker card="5d"]. The river was the meaningless [poker card="ac"], giving Lampropulos the pot and sending Murthy home in eighth place. Just 30 minutes later Swift moved all in for 37,900,000 from UTG+1. Action folded to Jeremy Pantin in the small blind and he moved all in over the top for just over 128,000,000. Swift table [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"] but was behind the [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"] of Pantin. The [poker card="as"][poker card="6c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="8s"][poker card="8c"] runout was no help for Swift and she was eliminated in seventh. After the very next hand, Stephen Chidwick found himself on the outside looking in. Pantin raised to 11,000,000 and Chidwick raised to 146,500,000 from the small blind before Mateusz Rypulak came over the top of 192,300,000. Pantin folded, Chidwick showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"] before Rypulak turned over [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5d"] flop was no help for Chidwick and the [poker card="6c"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river only served to give Rypulak a full house and eliminate Chidwick in sixth. The first three eliminations came rather quickly, but five-handed play lasted a little over 90 minutes. With blinds now at 3M/6M (600K) Lampropulos raised to 14,000,000 from the button, Pantin called from the small blind and Jon Spinks moved all in for just over 53,000,000. Lampropulos folded,m but Pantin called and turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="7s"] while Spinks showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="jd"][poker card="8h"] flop put Pantin ahead with a pair of aces and the [poker card="2s"] turn and [poker card="5h"] river failed to change anything, sending Spinks to the rail in fifth. Lampropulos picked up another elimination just over an hour later. Blinds were now 4M/8M (800K) and Mulhern opened to 16,000,000 from early position, Lampropulos called from the button and Rypulak also called from the big blind. The flop was [poker card="td"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5h"], Rypulak and Mulhern both checked, allowing Lampropulos to bet 26,000,000. Rypulak moved all in for 124,000,000, Mulhern folded and Lampropulos called. Rypulak had [poker card="8s"][poker card="7s"] for middle pair but got bad news when Lampropulos showed [poker card="qh"][poker card="th"] for top pair. The [poker card="ts"] turn sealed the deal for Lampropulos, sending Rypulak out in fourth place while the dealer dealt the meaningless [poker card="5d"] river. She wasn’t done there. Lampropulos limped and Pantin raised to 28,000,000, Lampropulos called and then checked after the [poker card="qd"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3h"] flop. Pantin bet 22,000,000 and Lampropulos called. The turn was the [poker card="ac"] and both players checked. The river was the [poker card="2s"] and Lampropulos fired out 35,000,000 before Pantin moved all in for 117,300,000. Lampropulos called and turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="3s"] for two pair while Pantin showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"] for a missed straight draw and a third place finish. When heads-up play began, Mulhern had 630M to the 617M of Lampropulos. The two players played for two hours, with Mulhern turning down talk of a deal because he wanted the £1 million score. The final hand basically played itself. Lampropulos raised to 20,000,000, Mulhern raised to 50,000,000 before Lampropulos moved all in for just over 840,000,000. Mulhern called and showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"] while Lampropulos showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3h"] flop kept Lampropulos ahead and after the [poker card="5s"] turn and [poker card="4s"] river, Mulhern was out and Lampropulos was showered in confetti as the winner. Final Table Payouts Maria Lampropulos -1,000,000 Jacob Mulhern - 650,000 Jeremy Pantin - 450,000 Mateusz Rypulak - 320,000 Jon Spinks - 220,000 Stephen Chidwick - 150,000 Katie Swift - 100,000 Neel Murthy - 72,395
  4. [caption width="640"] Vojtech Ruzicka captured the partypokerLive High Roller event at the Dusk Till Dawn. (PokerListings photo)[/caption] Long before he made the World Series of Poker Main Event final table and the exclusive fraternity of November Nine members, Vojtech Ruzicka was a respected player and more than accomplished professional. Ruzicka added another great result to his poker resume today by winning the £10,300 High Roller at the Dusk Till Dawn as part of the partypokerLive series that is ongoing in Nottingham, England. Ruzicka defeated a tough final table filled with World Poker Tour champions and did so after starting the final table near the top in chips as he outlasted a phenomenal 110 player field. The nine-handed final table had its first casualty in the opening level of play and it was Ruzicka handing out the elimination ticket. Jason Wheeler opened for 125,000 from the hijack and Ruzicka jammed for 3,400,000 out of the small blind. Daniel Merrilees called all in for 578,000 in the big blind and Wheeler got out of the way. Merrilees was ahead with [poker card="qh"][poker card="qd"] against the [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] of Ruzicka heading to the flop. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"] flop was clean for Merrilees but the [poker card="td"] turn gave Ruzicka a set. Merrilees failed to catch up on the river and exited the stage. 45 minutes later, 2016 Bay 101 Champion Stefan Schillhabel was all in for five big blinds with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qd"] against the [poker card="as"][poker card="9c"] of Bartlomiej Machon. The board ran all low cards and Schillhabel finished in eighth place. Machon notched another bustout shortly after eliminating Schillhabel. Laszlo Bujtas moved all in for 693,000 from early position with [poker card="kc"][poker card="jd"] and found himself in trouble against the [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] of Machon. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="ts"][poker card="jc"] board did little for Bujtas and he took home seventh place. There was yet another elimination in a relatively short time span with Wheeler the next player on the chopping block. With the blinds at 30,000/60,000, Wheeler shoved for 1,252,000 from the small blind and was called by Machon in the big blind. Wheeler was live with [poker card="jc"][poker card="th"] but would need help against the [poker card="ac"][poker card="7h"] of Machon. No card above a nine hit the flop, turn or river and Machon took down his third straight opponent. Ruzicka gave Machon a breather and eliminated Joao Simao in fifth place to wrap up the first day of the final table. Simao got his last 522,000 in the middle from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="2s"] against the [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] of Ruzicka. After coming from behind the first time he took down a final table opponent, Ruzicka held with the better hand to make the final table four-handed. When play resumed, it over an hour for the first player to leave the live stream stage with Chris Backhouse the unlucky competitor. Satellite qualifier Chris Backhouse moved all in for 1,015,000 from the small blind and Machon called out of the big blind. Backhouse and his [poker card="qh"][poker card="js"] were behind the [poker card="kh"][poker card="3h"] of Machon and the [poker card="8h"][poker card="6c"][poker card="3d"] flop did Backhouse no good. The [poker card="8d"] turn kept Machon ahead and the [poker card="4h"] was the final nail in Backhouse’s coffin. Tom Hall advanced to the podium stage of the event but would have to settle with the bronze medal. Ruzicka raised on the button and Hall moved all in for 1,825,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="2d"]. Ruzicka called with [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] and managed to hold through the [poker card="jd"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"] board to bring the tournament down to heads up play. Once Hall was on his way to the payout cage, Ruzicka and Machon made an ICM deal that left £50,000 to play for along with the trophy. Ruzicka locked up £234,210 while Machon guaranteed himself £220,790. The players also agreed to shorten the levels to 20 minutes as they got ready to play out the rest of the event. The match went back and forth for many levels before Ruzicka locked up the title over the course of two hands. With the blinds at 200,000/400,000, Ruzicka was all in for 3,290,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="6s"] against the [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] of Machon. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5h"] flop was exactly was Ruzicka was looking for as he paired his ace to take the lead. Machon failed to catch up on the last two community cards and was down to just over 10 big blinds. Machon was all in for those final chips a few hands later with [poker card="as"][poker card="7d"] against the [poker card="ks"][poker card="4c"] of Ruzicka. As he did throughout the final table, Ruzicka found the right card when he needed it and hit the [poker card="kc"] on the flop to take the lead. Despite picking up the [poker card="7c"] on the turn, Machon improved no further and finished in second place. Final Table Payouts Vojtech Ruzicka - £284,210* Bartlomiej Machon - £220,790* Tom Hall - £142,000 Chris Backhouse- £110,000 Joao Simao - £85,000 Jason Wheeler - £65,000 Laszlo Bujtas - £50,000 Stefan Schillhabel - £40,000 Daniel Merrilees - £30,000 *reflects heads up deal
  5. [caption width="640"] Rob Yong is the brains behind Dusk Till Dawn Casino and one of the most talked about poker tournaments of 2017. (WPT photo)[/caption] Dusk Till Dawn Casino and partypokerLive aimed for the stars with their £6,000,000 guaranteed event that wrapped up last weekend in Nottingham, England. The event drew a total field size of over 8,500 entrants that played in online and live stages of the tournament before the field combined at Dusk Till Dawn. The guarantee was exceeded and in the end, Maria Lampropulos walked away with the title and £1,000,000 first place prize. Overall, the event was a huge success but none of it would have been possible with the guiding touch of Dusk Till Dawn Founder, Rob Yong. The casino set in the UK Midlands has gradually become a more popular destination for tournaments with each passing year and it is Yong who is primarily responsible for that. Yong’s passion for the game shines through in every decision he’s made since Dusk Till Dawn first opened 10 years ago, and knows that it was only a matter of time before a tournament of this magnitude took place. “It was always our target when we opened DTD to deliver a £1,000,000 for the winner event within the first five years, but it has taken us 10 years to get there, so it’s been a long time coming, I don’t think we got there earlier because of our problems finding the right online partner, I think we have changed online partners five times in the last 10 years which I would say is the reason why it’s taken so long," said Yong. "We have extended our partypoker partnership until the end of 2021 so we now have stability so I feel we can push the bar much higher both in the UK and internationally.” The initiative required by Yong to put a seven-figure first place prize up for grabs and cooperative nature to find the right online partner played a strong role in making the partypokerLIVE Millions happen. This is far from the first major tour stop to come through Yong’s casino and the learning experiences from the previous series over the years prepared him for one of the biggest events on the poker calendar. “(This event ranks) up there with the ISPT Wembley and Caribbean Poker Party, I don’t think WPT and UKIPT can really compare fairly as they were very UK focused events, whereas ISPT, CPP, and MILLIONS were global," said Yong. "ISPT Wembley had its logistical challenges which made it special, CPPs are great as they are holidays - but this MILLIONS was very special because of the atmosphere at the event. Overall, MILLIONS probably ranks at #1 because we had 2 x £1M side events which both hit, I know the £6M Main gets the headlines but the overall schedule was special.” Yong is the primary catalyst for pushing Dusk Till Dawn to reach this point but he is tremendously appreciative of his staff for their hard work. As much as he would like to, Yong isn’t able to work on every aspect of the events at his casino. The Dusk Till Dawn and partypoker staff received high praise from Yong for making sure it went off without a hitch. “It sounds a cliche, but I am more happy for the staff who have worked so hard and have taken some big hits over the years to build the reputation of the Club to a level when this type of event was possible. It’s not a massive deal for me personally, to be honest, I really just get enjoyment out of the DTD and partypoker staff feeling a sense of achievement and believing that we can do great things for the poker world if we work together. This is a decent start to a much bigger project.”
  6. [caption width="640"] Who are five gaming providers who might be setting up shop in Pennsylvania?[/caption] Last week’s announcement of regulated online poker in Pennsylvania was met with a great cheer from those within the state. The march to clicking buttons in the Keystone State is in its next phase and there are major steps to come. One of the primary parts of the process is for gaming providers to become licensed to operate within the state. Given the size of the Pennsylvania market, there are sure to be plenty of service providers looking to get in on the action with 12 licenses up for grabs. With that in mind, below is a look at five potential companies who are likely to be among the list of potential operators when the first hand of online poker is dealt in the state. 1. PokerStars This one is an obvious choice. The world’s largest online poker site has had a large impact in New Jersey since being licensed there in 2016. The first step for PokerStars to officially be in Pennsylvania is to find a property to partner with. There are a few potential options for PokerStars to partner with and perhaps that news will make itself known in the near future. Additionally, with the recent agreement of New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware to combine player pools, PokerStars would have a strong financial interest in the having both New Jersey and Pennsylvania players operating on the same network. 2. 888 Poker When Joe McKeehen made his way to the November Nine in 2015, he arrived at the final table wearing an 888 patch. Patching up McKeehen was part of 888’s efforts to gain entry into Pennsylvania when the state first appeared ready to legalize online gambling. With regulation now in place, expect 888 to be a primary place of play once the doors formally open. In addition to its online presence, 888Live has given the company an entry point for live tournaments. Given the location of a Harrah's property in Philadelphia, it would make sense for 888 to join forces there and with WSOP.com. 3. Rush Street Gaming The poker company that is the parent of Poker Night in America has many interests in being a potential gaming provider in Pennsylvania. On opposite sides of the state sit Rivers Pittsburgh and SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia. The sister properties are under the Rush Street umbrella and have been utilized for events such as King of the Hill. Rush Street already has a core audience of consumers and allowing consumers access to virtual poker rooms would provide another stream of revenue for the company. Armed with Matt Glantz already onboard as a brand ambassador, the likelihood of Rush Street tying their live and online market into one seems high. 4. partypoker Like 888, partypoker has grown their live brand immensely in the past year and has the chance to grow even higher in Pennsylvania. partypoker’s shared partnership with the Borgata in Atlantic City allows for them to offer online satellites for their live host. The Borgata runs five major series each calendar year and many of the thousands who enter live in Pennsylvania. Once Pennsylvania jumps into the shared player pool, partypoker is sure to be among the first to want to grab as many players as possible. If enough scenarios break the right way, the first partypoker Millions event in the United States might be in Pennsylvania. 5. Pala Poker One of the newest additions to the New Jersey market might be trying to make moves into another state. Should Pala secure themselves a live partner, there doesn't seem to be anything standing in its way in terms of aggressive expansion into Pennsylvania. A little bit of fresh blood never hurt the waters.
  7. partypoker’s award-winning tournament, MILLIONS North America, returns to the Playground Poker Club on April 21. The festival is headlined by an inviting CAD $10,000,000 guaranteed Main Event with a $5,300 buy-in. If the mere total prize pool wasn’t enough to get players adrenaline spiking, it’s a certainty that, at a minimum, the top three finishers in the event will all walk away with at least CAD $1 million. Three instant millionaires. CAD $10 MILLION Guaranteed As partypoker continues to expand on their "player’s first" agenda, they find themselves offering some of the most ambitious tournaments of the year. A CAD $10 million guarantee may not be an easy number to hit. In fact, even though they have five starting flights (beginning on Tuesday, April 24) they are going to need 2000 runners in order to cover the guarantee. That’s great news for players - if they get there or even surpass it, there’s a massive prize pool. If by chance they happen to miss, there would be some added value in overlay. Either way, if players have ever been inclined to make it to Montreal - partypoker MILLIONS North America is the tournament to enter. Qualify for MILLIONS North America Online In order to help them hit such a lofty attendee milestone, partypoker is running non-stop qualifiers on their site. Buy-ins start for as little as $0.50.

Buy-ins begin at CAD $110 + $10 and they will feed, in total, a guaranteed 65 total seats to the Main Event.

The path to partypoker MILLIONS North America starts for just $0.50 with qualifiers running right now around the clock online and in-person satellites starting on April 22.
  8. A long-awaited award for one of the most beloved players in Europe belongs to Bruno Fitoussi. The 59-year-old Frenchman is the latest member of the partypoker roster of ambassadors. Per partypoker, Fitoussi's official role is to be an ambassador for partypoker LIVE's global tour of events. Fitoussi's name is one consistent with excellence at the poker table both in tournaments and cash games. As partypoker moves to expand their tournament reach, Fitoussi is by their side to spread goodwill at all partypoker LIVE stops. The first stop for Fitoussi representing partypoker is at the end of September for MILLIONS LIVE UK at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. Fitoussi commented on his upcoming schedule saying, “I can’t wait to come back to Nottingham to Dusk Till Dawn for MILLIONS UK, and the Caribbean Poker Party in The Bahamas is a ‘must do’ for any poker player. To end 2018, I will head to Deauville for the WPT Deepstacks in December [3-9 December].” The Aviation Club de France in Fitoussi's home of Paris held his services for 20 years as their poker consultant. As Fitoussi shifts roles to the global side of poker, he remarked on the change and excitement for the partnership. “I am thrilled to join the partypoker LIVE team. partypoker has always held a special place in my heart, so to be working with them is a great privilege for me. I have a vast wealth of industry experience that I am excited to share, and I look forward to getting involved with all aspects of the business.” The peak of Fitoussi's tournament career came in 2007 when he took second place in the 2007 $50,000 Poker Players Championship where he earned his career-best score of $1.278 million. Four Poker Hall of Fame nominations later, Fitoussi's reputation is sterling amongst his peers at the table and on the business end of the game. In 2003, Fitoussi earned 15th place in the WSOP Main Event. Another silver medal at the WSOP went to Fitoussi this summer. He earned $150,990 for runner-up in the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better event.
  9. Anton Suarez usually makes his living playing cash games live or online. For the last five days, however, the Swedish poker pro has been unable to do so as he splashed around on the tournament side. He'll be able to get back to his day job on Monday, however, and he'll have an extra $1,000,000 to work with after beating out the 529 other players to win the partypoker MILLIONS UK Main Event. While 12 players returned for the final day, the final table actually started eight-handed after Alex Lindop busted in 10th and Jamie O'Connor went out in ninth on the same hand. Maria Lampropulos, who won the inaugural partypoker MILLIONS at Dusk Till Dawn in 2017, started the final table as the short stack and managed to last just 30 minutes. From the cutoff, Jack Hardcastle raised to 3,500,000 with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"] before Lampropulos moved all-in for 19,100,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"] and Hardcastle called. The board ran out [poker card="jh"][poker card="td"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="6d"] to give Lampropulos a short sweat before eliminating her in eighth place. Hardcastle's stay only lasted another 45 minutes. From UTG+1 the young Brit raised to 4,500,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="td"]. Action folded to Christian Rudolph in the cutoff and he re-raised to 11,000,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"]. Hardcastle called to send both players to a [poker card="jd"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3d"] flop. Hardcastle checked, Rudolph bet 9,000,000, and Hardcastle moved all-in for 43,700,000. Rudolph called. The turn was the [poker card="6c"] and the river was the [poker card="ts"] to miss all of Hardcastle's outs and eliminate him in seventh. A blind-versus-blind battle lead to the end of the road for Weijie Zheng. Action folded to Zheng in the small blind and he moved all in for 38,400,000 with [poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"]. Rudolph called from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="8d"] after using two of his time extensions. The [poker card="td"][poker card="9d"][poker card="6c"] flop gave Zheng a gutshot straight draw. The [poker card="ac"] turn gave Rudolph top pair and left Zheng drawing to one of three eights. However, the river was [poker card="3d"] and Zheng was sent to the rail in sixth place. An hour later, the other Swedish player at the final table was eliminated. Fredrik Andersson looked down and [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"] in the hijack and moved all-in for 30,500,000. Suarez called from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="td"] before James Romero folded [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"] from the big blind. THe [poker card="jc"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="5d"] runout couldn't save Andersson and he was eliminated in fifth. The Dusk Till Dawn rail lost one of their own just a few hands later. Suarez called from the small blind with [poker card="9h"][poker card="4h"] and James Clarke checked with [5]d[poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="6h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="4s"] flop gave both players trip fours. Suarez checked, Clarke bet 2,500,000, and Suarez called. The turn was the [poker card="th"] and Suarez bet 12,500,000 before Clarke moved all-in for 71,000,000 and Suarez called. The [poker card="qh"] river gave Suarez a flush and forced Calrke to settle for a fourth place finish. Three-handed play lasted nearly an hour before Suarez found another victim. Rudolph folded the button, Suarez called from the small blind with [poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"] and Romero checked with [poker card="kd"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Suarez bottom set and Romero top pair. Suarez bet 3,000,000 before Romero made it 10,000,000 and Suarez called. The turn was the [poker card="8d"] and Suarez check-called Romero's 20,000,000 bet. After the [poker card="5s"] river, Suarez checked, Romero moved all-in for 42,000,000 and Suarez called to eliminate Romero in third and send the tournament to heads-up with stacks nearly dead even. Each player took turns as the chip leader over the next two hours before Suarez took the chip lead for good. Down to just 10 big blinds, Rudolph moved all-in from the big blind with [poker card="7h"][poker card="4h"] after Suarez completed from the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="8h"]. Suarez called and then watched the [poker card="kc"][poker card="9d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="as"][poker card="9c"] runout eliminate Rudolph in second place and give Suarez his first major title. partypoker MILLIONS UK Final Table Payouts Anton Suarez - $1,000,000 Christian Rudolph - $620,000 James Romero - $420,000 James Clarke - $311,000 Fredrik Andersson - $230,000 Weijie Zheng - $170,000 Jack Hardcastle - $130,000 Maria Lampropulos - $100,000 Jamie O'Connor - $80,000
