  1. There might not be much known about Patrick Kennedy, the winner of World Series of Poker Online Event #45 ($840 Bounty NLHE) on Friday morning, but at least five of his opponents at the final table will be cursing his name for some time. Kennedy eliminated five of the other eight players at the final table to take home the $140,768 first place prize and more than $100,000 in bounties. It took just a few minutes of final table play for the first player to bust. Chi Chung Ho moved all in from UTG+1 for 3,592,712 with [poker card="jd"][poker card="jc"]. Jose Severino called all in from the big blind and was racing with [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"][poker card="4c"] flop hit Ho the hardest but Severino was now drawing to a flush. Unfortunately for Severino, neither the [poker card="9d"] turn or [poker card="9h"] river brought the flush home and he was eliminated in ninth. Arie Kliper made it 600,000 to go from middle position before Kennedy moved all in for 16,001,688 from the button. Francesco Favia called off his last 2,482,628 from the small blind and Kliper folded when action came back to him. Kennedy turned over [poker card="6d"][poker card="6h"] and Favia needed some help after turning over [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="jh"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5s"] flop missed Favia entirely and the [poker card="6s"] turn gave Kennedy a full house. The [poker card="qs"] river was too little too late for Favia and he was out in eighth place. A few minutes later, Ho Yin Tai decided to make a stand. From the cutoff, Tai moved all in for 4,172,092 - just a shade more than 10 big blinds - with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9c"] and Franco Spitale woke up in the big blind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"]. Tai got no help on the [poker card="8c"][poker card="8h"][poker card="3h"] flop, [poker card="5h"] turn, or [poker card="td"] river and was eliminated in seventh. Kennedy ended another opponent's run just three minutes later. Kliper moved all in for 5,838,781 from the cutoff with [poker card="ah"][poker card="8d"] and Kennedy moved all in for 18,259,316 from the small blind with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9c"]. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="th"][poker card="8c"] runout didn't save Kliper and he was sent to the rail in sixth place. It took almost 30 minutes to go from five players remaining to four. Down to just 13 big blinds, Chi Chung Ho moved all in from the button for 6,541,828 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="4d"] and Josh Pollock called from the big blind with [poker card="7h"][poker card="7s"]. The board ran out [poker card="qs"][poker card="9s"][poker card="2d"][poker card="td"][poker card="ks"] to make Ho the fifth place finisher. Kennedy kept up his role of being the executioner at this final table. Action folded to Kennedy in the small blind and he shoved for 26,375,127 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] and Spitale called off his last 2,769,825 with [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"]. Spitale could only watch the [poker card="8h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="8c"][poker card="4c"] runout to end his tournament with a fourth place result. Kennedy continued to maintain the chip lead and then put it to good use to send the second-biggest stack out. Kennedy called from the button, Pollock did likewise from the small blind and Bernardo Dias checked from the big blind. All three players then checked after seeing the [poker card="9c"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2h"] flop. The turn was the [poker card="th"] and Pollock fired a bet of 1,005,000 before Dias made it 3,015,000 to go. Kennedy moved all in and Pollock folded but Dias called all in. Dias showed [poker card="td"][poker card="7d"] for two pair but Kennedy showed [poker card="js"][poker card="8s"] for a turned straight. Dias didn't fill up on the [poker card="qc"] river and was eliminated in third. Thanks largely to that pot, Kennedy had a slightly better than 3-1 chip lead over Pollock when heads up play started. That didn't stop Pollock, a two-time WSOP bracelet winner, from making it competitive. He worked his way into the chip lead but wasn't able to spend much time on top before meeting his fate as the runner-up. Kennedy raised to 1,200,000 before Pollock re-raised to 4,200,000. Kennedy moved all in for and Pollock called off his last 24,769,156. Pollock showed [poker card="td"][poker card="td"] but got bad news as Kennedy tabled [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="7h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3c"] flop didn't offer Pollock much hope and the [poker card="7s"] turn and [poker card="qh"] river completed the board to eliminate Pollock in second. Final Table Payouts Patrick Kennedy - $245,448.39 Josh Pollock - $101,212.03 Bernardo Dias - $72,772.29 Franco Spitale - $52,323.96 Chi Chung Ho - $37,621.40 Arie Kliper - $27,050.18 Ho Yin Tai - $19,449.31 Francesco Favia - $13,984.34 Jose Severino - $10,054.89
  2. Jim Lefteruk entered the final table of World Series of Poker Online Event #73 ($1,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed) as the only player at the table without a single registered result on Hendon Mob. He emerged from the final table with a first place prize of $299,511 and a WSOP gold bracelet. Lefteruk, a Canadian, outlasted a field that drew 2,202 players for a total prize pool of $2,091,900. The final table began with nine players and the blinds at 80,000/160,000 with an ante of 20,000. Jorge Abreu (2,228,653), Lefteruk (2,274,944), and Ivan Luca (2,552,832) all had right approximately 15 big blinds at the start of the final table, but despite their relatively short stacks, nine-handed play lasted for just under an hour. Anant Prohit entered the final table second in chips with 9,271,334, but after nearly an hour of play he was down to just under 13 big blinds. Lefteruk raised to 400,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="kh"][poker card="jh"] and Prohit moved all in to 2,526,982 from the big blind holding the [poker card="as"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8d"] gave Lefteruk the lead and the [poker card="kc"] turn left Purohit drawing dead. A meaningless [poker card="5c"] on the river eliminated Purohit in ninth place. Another half hour passed before Andrii Derzhypilskyi made an under-the-gun raise to 480,000 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="kc"]. Former final table chip leader Patrick Kennedy went all-in for his last 5,089,945 to Derzhypilskyi’s immediate left with [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"]. Derzhypilskyi quickly called after the action folded back around to him, and a [poker card="5s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="7s"] runout offered no help to Kennedy who was knocked out in eight place. Just three minutes later, Abreu raised over four times the big blind to 1,080,000 with [poker card="js"][poker card="jd"]. Derzhypilskyi three-bet on the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"] to 4,383,300 which was enough to put the remaining players in the hand all in. Seungmook Jung called off his remaining 3,676,430 from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] and Abreu completed his all-in to 2,240,612. The case jack fell on a [poker card="jc"][poker card="4h"][poker card="6s"] board to put Abreu way out in front. Jung turned some straight outs with the [poker card="qs"], but was eliminated in seventh place when the [poker card="9s"] gave Abreu a clean triple-up. Six-handed play went on for 50 minutes until Markku Koplimaa raised on the button to 1,600,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="8h"]. Luca three-bet shoved from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] to move Koplimaa all in, and Koplimaa called off his remaining 1,501,826. An uneventful [poker card="jc"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2d"][poker card="th"][poker card="5h"] board was enough to knock Koplimaa out of the tournament in sixth place. After about 15 minutes of five-handed play, two knockouts came within five minutes of one another. Derzhypilskyi raised to 2,944,000 on the button with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qc"] and faced an all-in raise from Endrit Geci in the big blind with [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"]. Derzhypilskyi called for his remaining 2,677,429 and couldn’t find the help he needed on an [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="9c"] runout. Moments later, Luca limped in on the button, Geci completed his small blind, and Lefteruk raised to 1,400,000 in the big blind. Luca and Geci both called and the flop came down [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"][poker card="qc"]. All three players checked through to the turn, which brought the [poker card="2d"]. Geci checked, Lefteruk bet 1,452,000, Luca called, and Geci folded. The [poker card="2s"] on the rover completed the board and Lefteruk bet enough to put Luca all-in for his last 6,567,556. Luca tanked for over two minutes before calling with [poker card="as"][poker card="js"]. Lefteruk’s flipped over the [poker card="2h"][poker card="2c"] to eliminate Luca in fourth place with quad deuces. Lefteruk dominated three-handed play to accumulate over 75% of the total chips in play. Abreu shoved from the button with 6,701,344 with [poker card="jh"][poker card="ts"] and was called by Lefteruk in the big blind holding [poker card="Ac"][poker card="4c"]. The [poker card="7h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2h"] brought in some flush outs for Abreu, who would need that flush to win when Lefteruk hit the [poker card="Ad"] for top pair on the turn. The [poker card="2s"] on the river knocked Abreu out of the tournament in third place. Lefteruk entered heads up play with a massive lead of 49,664,832 to 5,385,168. Geci lasted for about 10 minutes until Lefteruk limped in from the button with [poker card="jh"][poker card="jd"] and which drew an all-in raise to 6,380,336 from Geci, who held the [poker card="ks"][poker card="tc"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"][poker card="4d"] gave Geci some straight outs to go along with his king, and the [poker card="ts"] on the turn brought in two more outs. But the [poker card="qd"] fell on the river to leave Lefteruk as the last man standing. Final Table Payouts Jim Lefteruk - $299,511 Endrit Geci - $223,978 Jorge Abreu - $161,042 Ivan Luca - $115,791 Andrii Derzhypilskyi - $83,254 Markku Koplimaa - $59,861 Seungmook Jung - $43,040 Patrick Kennedy - $30,946 Anant Purohit - $22,250
