  1. [caption width="640"] William Kassouf took down a big birthday payday (Image c/o PokerStars)[/caption] William Kassouf decided to celebrate his birthday, well, like a boss. The British poker pro took down the last-ever European Poker Tour High Roller Event after a heads-up deal with Patrick Serda. Kassouf put his table talk to good use, negotiating a heads-up chop where he took home a little over €530,000 but got the trophy and the winner photo in addition to credit as the winner. Patrick Serda took home €719,000 for second place. He may have wheeled and dealed his way to the win once it got to heads-up, but Kassouf certainly played a ton of poker to earn the win. The €10,300 buy-in High Roller drew a record-setting field of 407, resulting in an almost €4 million prize pool. When play began on the third and final day of the event, 24 players remained and Kassouf was near the bottom of the counts. He doubled up more than once to survive in the early goings. By the time the final table rolled around, Kassouf was one of the big stacks at the table. At the final table, Kassouf and Serda battled back and forth for the honor of big stack. Serda surpassed Kassouf when he eliminated Jens Lakemeier in eighth place. Lakemeier shoved all-in on the river of an [poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="tc"][poker card="9s"] board and Serda called with [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] for aces up and Lakemeier could only show a small pair and a busted draw. Kassouf took a chunk out of Serda, but Serda clawed back in contention when he eliminated Grzegorz Wyraz in sixth place, calling Wyraz’s all-in preflop shove holding [poker card="as"][poker card="7h"] to Wyraz’s [poker card="5c"][poker card="6c"]. Serda continued to plow through the competition, calling Paul Leckey’s three-bet shove with [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"] to Leckey’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="3s"]. His superior ace held up and the field was down to four with Serda way out front with more than double his next closest competitor, Kassouf. That lead got bigger after Viliyan Petleshkov was eliminated in fourth place. He ran pocket deuces into Serda’s pocket eights to exit. Serda was up to 13 million after that and picked up his fourth KO of the final table. With three players remaining, talks of a chop began, but Tue Ullerup Hansen wasn’t swayed by the ICM numbers and declined, willing to take his 3 million and change up against Serda’s 14 million and Kassouf’s 2.5 million. Kassouf doubled through Ullerup Hansen to get him rather short, but Serda was the one to finish him off. Serda shoved on the button with [poker card="qs"][poker card="7c"] and Ullerup Hansen called holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"]. Serda hit a queen on the [poker card="qc"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="tc"][poker card="3s"] board to take the action to heads-up. Outchipped by more than a 4:1 margin, Kassouf opted to take less money than an ICM chop would pay and take the winner photo to finish out the last High Roller event in EPT history. Here are the final table results from the EPT Prague High Roller William Kassouf - €532,500* Patrick Serda - €719,000* Tue Ullerup Hansen - €351,000 Viliyan Petleshkov - €283,850 Paul Leckey - €224,600 Grzegorz Wyraz - €172,910 Matas Cimbolas - €128,700 Jens Lakemeier - €93,170 * denotes a heads-up deal
  2. [caption width="640"] Patrick ‘prepstyle71’ Serda won 2,930.71 for taking down the PLO Championship[/caption] Thursday’s World Championship of Online Poker action included a No Limit Hold‘em tournament, a Pot Limit Omaha Championship and a low buy-in HORSE event. Each tournament smashed its guarantee, underscoring PokerStars’ strength in the online poker world, as well as the popularity of the series. The first event to finish up yesterday was a $530 buy-in No Limit Hold‘em tournament with rebuys. On Day 1, players made a total of 345 rebuys and 289 add-ons, pumping up the prize pool to $502,500, easily surpassing the event’s $300,000 guarantee. Only 24 players remained at the end of the first day, including poker pros Felix ‘ZhipOHoy’ Stephensen and Ole ‘wizowizo’ Schemion. In the end it was Netherlands’ ‘marcasa’ who came out on top to win the $91,540 first-place prize and add his first WCOOP title to his resume. A modest field of 406 grinders turned up for the $2,100 Pot Limit Omaha Championship Six Max event. The extremely tough field made a total of 169 reentries, bumping up the prize pool to $1,150,000, more than double its $500,000 guarantee. Highlighting the level of competition in the tournament, EPT5 Copenhagen champion and 2016 WSOP PLO Highroller bracelet winner Jens 'Jeans89' Kyllonen busted out in ninth place, leaving two-time WSOP bracelet winner Mike 'gordo16' Gorodinsky and five others to battle for the healthy $202,930 first-place prize. After a grueling hour-long heads-up match, Patrick ‘prepstyle71’ Serda finally pulled away from his Dutch opponent, ‘Bullitos’, winning the championship and the six-figure top prize. Event #64 was a $320 HORSE tournament that drew 356 runners and exceeded it $75,000 guarantee by more than $30,000 for total prize pool of $106,800. Five-time COOP champ ‘aDrENalin710’ of Russia once again proved his skills in mixed game tournaments by defeating the UK’s ‘LUFCBas’ for the title and $17,848. The victory gives the Russian six total COOP wins and adds to his first-place finish in the $1,050 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship, for which he took home $63,780 earlier this month.

  3. [caption width="640"] Patrick Serda hit the biggest online tournament score of his career on Monday after winning the WCOOP K High Roller (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Patrick Serda was a pretty busy guy this weekend. On Saturday, he played Day 1B of the World Cup of Cards main event in Montreal and managed to end the day with an above average stack. On Sunday, he played Day 1 of the $10,000 buy-in World Championship of Online Poker High Roller on PokerStars and ended the day with the chip lead. On Monday he closed one out and moved on to Day 3 in the other. Serda beat out 243 other players to win WCOOP Event #82 High ($10,300 No Limit Hold'em High Roller) for $469,190.91. He eventually finished Day 3 of the WCC event with an above average stack. To win his second WCOOP title, Serda had to beat out a final table that included two players who have already won WCOOP titles this year, 'KumariOy', who won Event #3, and Jens 'Fresh_oO_D' Lakemeier, who won Event #23 on Sunday. He also had to outlast Andres 'Educa-p0ker' Artinano and Martin 'nizmo jiz' Kozlov. Serda's win was one of four WCOOP titles handed out on Monday. The other three events were all "Special Edition" versions of the usual PokerStars Sunday Majors. 'OMGACEACEACE' won just over $78,000 for winning Event #25 High ($215 Sunday Kickoff Special Edition). 'Rafal1337' finished second for $35,380.81 in earnings plus an additional $12,225.86 in bounties. Poland's 'wiciu777' started the final table of Event #26 High ($1,050 Sunday Warm-Up Special Edition) with the smallest stack but that didn't matter as he worked his way through a final table that included the likes Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland, former WCOOP winner 'nilsef' and Oscar 'MendaLerenda' Serradell to win his first WCOOP title and $222,246.70. Serradell took home $158,521.65. Nick 'PureCash25' Rampone won Event #27 High ($530 Sunday Million Special Edition) for $256,502.18. Alexandre Rivero finished second for $181,373.35.

  5. The World Poker Tour has a new champion, after Patrick 'prepprepprep' Serda defeated a field of 792 entries to win the Season XVII WPT Montreal C$5,300 Main Event. Serda came into the final table at Playground Poker Club with the chip lead and successfully battled his way to victory to claim the C$855,000 first-place prize. At the official WPT final table of six, Serda defeated World Poker Tour champion Ema Zajmovic in heads-up play, and he also battled with Sorel Mizzi (3rd place) and WPTDeepStacks champion Upeshka De Silva (5th place). WPT Montreal Final Table Results 1st: Patrick 'prepprepprep' Serda - C$855,000* 2nd: Ema Zajmovic - C$556,000 3rd: Sorel Mizzi - C$410,000 4th: Kauvsegan Ehamparam - C$305,450 5th: Upeshka De Silva - C$230,250 6th: Jiachen Gong - C$175,500 *First-place payout includes a $15,000 entry into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions. The final-table eliminations began when Jiachen Gong was sent home in sixth place as the result of a three-way clash. Zajmovic, Gong, and Kauvsegan Ehamparam found all of the money in the middle preflop. Zajmovic and Gong both had ace-queen, and Ehamparam had ace-king. The ace-king held for Ehamparam and he won the pot to triple up, while Gong long to Zajmovic after she made a flush. De Silva was next to go, busting at the hands of Mizzi when his pocket fours couldn’t pull off the upset against Mizzi’s pocket jacks. Shortly after that, Ehamparam was sent home in fourth place by Zajmovic. Three-handed play meant Zajmovic was just two players away from her second World Poker Tour title. Serda and Mizzi were each looking for their first. After being fairly quiet throughout the final table, Serda woke up in a big way when he knocked out Mizzi in third place. Mizzi had fallen short and moved all in from the button for 3.2 million when the blinds were 100,000-200,000 with a 200,000 big blind ante. Serda reraised all in from the small blind for 12.6 million. Zajmovic folded from the big blind and it was Mizzi’s two sizes against the pocket nines for Serda. Mizzi failed to come from behind and was knocked out in third place for C$410,000. With the elimination of Mizzi, Serda was able to enter heads-up play with a slight lead. Serda had 16.15 million to Zajmovic's 15.675 million. Only a handful of hands were played between the two before Serda sealed the victory. The heads-up pots played between Serda and Zajmovic to start didn’t seem like much. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the two collided to end the tournament. On the final hand, Zajmovic raised to 500,000 on the button. The blinds were still 100,000-200,000 with a 200,000 big blind ante, and Serda opted to three-bet to 1.6 million. Zajmovic came back with a four-bet to 3.8 million, and Serda called. The flop was [poker card="Ts"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6s"] and both players checked to see the [poker card="Ac"] land on the turn. Serda checked, Zajmovic bet 3 million, and Serda called to see the [poker card="3h"] land on the river. Serda checked, Zajmovic moved all in for 8.5 million, and Serda went into the tank. He eventually made the call holding just the[poker card="7d"][poker card="5d"] for a pair of sevens. Zajmovic had air with the[poker card="Kd"][poker card="9s"] and was eliminated in second place. Season XVII WPT Montreal event marked the first in the new four-year partnership between the World Poker Tour and partypoker LIVE. The event attracted 792 entries but failed to reach the C$5 million guarantee on the prize pool. The top 103 places reached the money, and notable finishes were had by WPT Champions Club members Jonathan Little (8th - C$105,500), Amir Babakhani (12th - C$67,000), Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah (18th - C$36,500), Marvin Rettenmaier (45th - C$14,978), David Ormsby (55th - C$13,221), Matt Salsberg (99th - C$8,712), and Darryll Fish (102nd - C$8,712). Next up for the World Poker Tour is the Season XVII WPT Seminole Rock 'N' Roll Poker Open at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The full festival runs November 14-28, 2018, with the $3,500 Championship Event taking place November 23-28. Photo courtesy of the World Poker Tour.
  6. The World Poker Tour continues Season XVII of the WPT Main Tour on Friday, November 23, with the start of the WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The venue is home to the largest WPT Main Tour event in history, and this season’s event comes with a $2 million guarantee on the prize pool. The WPT RRPO $3,500 Championship runs November 23-28 and features two starting flights and unlimited reentry is allowed through the first nine levels. Per standard WPT Main Tour structure, players begin with 40,000 in chips, a big blind ante will be used, and the Action Clock will be entered into play once the field is one table off the money. Players will play 60-minute levels on Day 1 and Day 2 before the levels are kicked up to 90 minutes on Day 3 and Day 4. The final table of the event will be live streamed on WPT.com on Wednesday, November 28. WPT Events at Seminole Known for Huge Fields and Big Payouts The addition of the Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open to the World Poker Tour schedule is new, but the WPT has plenty of history with the host property, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, especially when it comes to $3,500 buy-in events. In addition to being home to the largest WPT Main Tour field in history, $3,500 buy-in WPT events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino have an average field size of 1,278 entries over the last seven. In those seven events, nearly $29 million in total prize money has been awarded, for an average prize pool of more than $4.1 million. The winner of that largest WPT Main Tour event in history was Eric Afriat, who topped an enormous field of 1,795 entries in the Season XII WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. The now two-time WPT champion Afriat won $1.081 million in that event. Other past champions of World Poker Tour events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino include Darryll Fish, Ryan Riess, Justin Young, Chino Rheem, and Taylor von Kriegenbergh. Von Kriegenbergh won the WPT event at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with the largest first-place prize in history. He took down the Season IX WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown for $1.122 million. Ruberto Leads Hublot WPT Player of the Year Race Heading In With a large field anticipated for the event, one of the storylines heading in is that of the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race for Season XVII. Two-time WPT champion Tony Ruberto currently leads with 1,800 points. Ruberto won his second World Poker Tour title this season when he captured the WPT Maryland at Live! Casino crown. He also made the final table of WPT Choctaw, placing fourth. In second place behind Ruberto is Erkut Yilmaz with 1,250 points, and then it’s Patrick Serda, Simon Lam, and Brady Holiman rounding out the top five with 1,200 points each. As the WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open $3,500 Championship has a $2 million guarantee on the prize pool, a minimum of 1,200 points will be awarded to the winner. Minimums of 1,000 points and 900 points will go to second and third places, respectively. The winner of the Hublot WPT Player of the Year for Season XVII will earn a $15,000 WPT Passport for buy-ins across the tour and a special Hublot watch. Appetizing Side Events During Championship During the dates of the Season XVII WPT Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open $3,500 Championship, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has three side events with buy-ins above $1,650. First is the $1,650 Deep Stack Purple Chip Bounty tournament that comes with a $100,000 guarantee. This event runs November 25-26. On November 26, the $5,000 Eight-Handed tournament kicks off. It is scheduled as a one-day tournament with a $250,000 guarantee. Also starting on November 26 is the $2,200 Deep Stack PLO tournament that is scheduled for two days and allows reentry. Thousands Already Showing Up This year’s Seminole Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open is already off to an impressive start. The opening event of the series, the $360 Deep Stack Reentry tournament that boasted a $1 million guarantee, attracted 4,558 entries and generated a guarantee-busting prize pool of $1.367 million. The event was won by Texas’ Trung Pham for $123,364 after a seven-way deal at the final table.
  7. November was a big month for attention-grabbing poker headlines. There was a hard-to-believe $100,000 prop bet that generated incredible buzz, the return of a high-profile lawsuit between a WSOP Main Event runner-up and the largest online poker site in the world, and the conclusion of a handful of prominent live poker tournaments that found winners. Here are PocketFives' top five stories from November 2018, plus a look at who won the PocketFives Monthly PLB title. Rory Young Reveals Details of $100K Pitch-Black Bathroom Prop Bet Poker players can be known to make wild prop bets, and that was certainly the case for Rory Young and Rich Alati. The two grabbed more than just poker headlines in November when their $100,000 bathroom prop bet was featured in headlines from several mainstream media outlets. It was one of the craziest prop bets we've ever heard of and will be one that is remembered for years and years to come. The bet was made to see if Alati could live in a pitch-black bathroom with no human contact and no electronics, among several other stipulations, for 30 days straight. Soon after the bet was made and began making its way around the poker world, PocketFives spoke with Young about the details of the bet and how it came to fruition. READ: Rory Young Reveals Details of $100K Pitch Black Bathroom Prop Bet Vayo Dismisses PokerStars Lawsuit; Stars Counters Alleging Forgery Back in May, it was made known that Gordon Vayo, runner-up in the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event, was suing PokerStars for the winnings the online poker site withheld from him from a 2017 Spring Championship of Online Poker tournament that was worth nearly $700,000. That story made headlines everywhere within the poker world, but it made even bigger news in November when a November 12 California court filing revealed that Vayo had voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit. What really kicked things up a notch, though, were two things. First that the lawsuit was dropped amid accusations of forgery committed by Vayo. Second, PokerStars was seeking repayment of their attorney fees for nearly $300,000 - quite the tipping of the scales.

Sinclair made his way to the 2018 WSOP Europe Main Event final table and emerged victorious atop the 534-entry field to win the €1.222 million ($1.277 million) first-place prize. To claim victory, Sinclair had to defeat one of online poker's toughest players in heads-up play, Laszlo 'omaha4rollz' Bujtas. The victory earned Sinclair the largest payday of his poker career and first WSOP gold bracelet.

The event attracted 792 entries, and it was Patrick 'prepprepprep' Serda who came out on top after entering the final table with the chip lead. Serda defeated the first female winner of an open WPT Main Tour event, Ema Zajmovic, in heads-up play to take home the C$855,000 ($652,801) first-place prize, denying Zajmovic her second World Poker Tour title.

The series was full of big buy-in events, notables faces capturing huge sums of cash, and nine seven-figure prizes awarded. The first big tournament of the series to find its winner was the $25,500 buy-in partypoker MILLIONS World. The event generated 394 entries and fell just short of its $10 million guarantee, but enormous prizes were still to be had, including the $2 million first-place prize that Roger Teska took home after he defeated Steve O'Dwyer in second place. O'Dwyer scored $1.3 million for the runner-up result, and third-place finisher Charles La Boissonniere also took home seven figures, winning $1 million. READ: Roger Teska Battles Back to Win partypoker MILLIONS World for $2M We then saw a $3.685 million winner come from the partypoker $250,000 Super High Roller Championships event, and it was Steffan Sontheimer earning a new career-best score. The event generated a field size of 34 entries for a prize pool of $8.235 million. Sontheimer beat out Sean Winter in heads-up play, and David Peters finished in third place. Winter and Peters took home $2.43 million and $1.42 million, respectively. READ: Steffan Sontheimer Wins partypoker $250K SHR Championships For $3.68M In the $5,300 buy-in Main Event, another $10 million prize pool guarantee was on the line. The event fell short of the guarantee with just 1,815 entries, but the top three spots still gave out a million dollars or more each. Winning the event was Portugal's Filipe Oliveira, taking home the $1.5 million top prize. Craig Mason finished second for $1.2 million, and Marc MacDonnell took third for $1 million.

It was a dominating performance for 'lena900,' who racked up more than 4,900 points. The closest competitor was 'girafganger7' with a monthly point total of less than 3,900. A couple of the notable November scores for 'lena900' included a third-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday Million on November 25 for $80,555 and 569.39 points and a win in the partypoker Sunday Super High Roller: $100K Gtd on November 18 for $41,480 and 387.30 points.

  8. Mike Leah didn't get to play much of the 2019 World Series of Poker after his first child was born during the summer. The Canadian doesn't have to miss a single hand of the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker though and on Saturday he made the most of it by winning his third career WCOOP title. Leah topped a 219-player field in Event #38 High ($2,100 No Limit Hold'em Turbo) for $85,476.67. After the victory, he tweeted a winner photo that included his newest addition.

United Kingdom-based grinder 'rickv17' beat out former #1-ranked PocketFiver Chris 'Big Huni' Hunichen to win Event #32 High ($2,100 Eight Game) for $60,320.

  9. Bradley Ruben has had a successful World Series of Poker Online so far this summer, with six cashes, including the final table of Event #27 ($1,050 PLO Bounty). He finished fourth in that event for nearly $40,000, but on Sunday he was able to get to the top, taking home his first WSOP bracelet, and over $220,000 for winning Event #62 ($1,500 PLO). The final table ended up starting short-handed with eight players, as there was a double elimination with ten players left. At virtually the same time, Simon Mason busted in 10th place, while Adam Hendrix quickly followed him out the door in ninth place. This left Canadian Patrick Serda holding the lead eight-handed. After shipping a double up over to another opponent, a short-stacked Tal Peretz got his final 360,000 and change in the middle, and Sami Kelopuro three-bet the pot to get everyone else out of the hand. Peretz held [poker card="Jh"][poker card="Jc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4s"], and he was trailing the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ac"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="10s"] of Kelopuro. The flop of [poker card="As"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="5s"] gave Kelopuro top set, but also gave Peretz a flush draw. However, two hearts closed out the board, and Peretz busted in eight place, earning $17,858. Despite starting the final table as the chip leader, Serda was the next person out, busting in a huge pot against Dorel Eldabach. Eldabach raised to 280,000 from late position, and Serda defended his big blind. The flop of [poker card="7s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"] saw Serda check call bet of 215,151, and the [poker card="Ts"] hit the turn. Serda checked again, and Eldabach fired 310,000. Serda check-raised to 910,000, and Eldabach called. The [poker card="Td"] river saw Serda move all-in for 1,868,679, and Eldabach put him at risk, showing [poker card="As"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="7c"][poker card="3s"] for the best flush possible. Serda showed [poker card="Qs"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"] for a complete bluff, and he'd had to settle for $33,910 in seventh. Next out the door was Sami Kelopuro. He made it 560,000 to go from the hijack, and Blaz Zerjav three-bet to 1,920,000, a pot sized bet. It folded back to Kelopuro, and he moved all in for another 1,344,671 on top of his raise. Zerjav called with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="Jc"][poker card="8d"], and he was well in front of the [poker card="9s"][poker card="9c"][poker card="3h"][poker card="3c"]. Zerjav flopped top set, and Kelopuro was drawing dead by the turn. He earned $46,727.14 for his finish. Despite picking up that elimination, it was Zerjav who bowed out next in fifth. He raised it up under the gun, and Ruben three-bet to 1,500,000 on the button. Zerjav made the call, and the flop came [poker card="7c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="6s"]. Zerjav check, then called all-in for 2,500,000 and change after Ruben shoved. Zerjav showed [poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"], which was drawing very live against the [poker card="As"][poker card="Ac"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="Td"] of Ruben. However, the [poker card="Qc"] turn and [poker card="Jc"] river provided no further help. The Slovenian took home $64,389 for his efforts. Ruben made it back-to-back eliminations after taking out Naman Madan in fourth. Ruben started by raising to 420,000 in the cutoff, and Madan three-bet to 1,560,000. Ruben made the call, and the flop came down [poker card="Qh"][poker card="5h"][poker card="5s"]. Ruben checked, and Madan bet the pot, 3,420,000. Ruben moved all in for the one million Madan had left, and the cards were shown. Madan: [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="8d"] Ruben: [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6s"] Ruben had flopped top set, leaving Madan drawing rather thin. No further help came, and Madan settled for $88,727 in fourth. Jens Lakemeier just missed out on heads up play, bowing out in third. In his final hand, he made it 504,000 to go from the button. Ruben three-bet the pot to 1,752,000 and that was called by Lakemeier. The flop came down [poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6s"], and Ruben bet the pot, setting Lakemeier all-in. He called with [poker card="As"][poker card="Js"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5d"], and had a ton of outs against the [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="Qh"][poker card="Jc"] of Ruben. The [poker card="Kc"] gave Ruben top set, and the [poker card="Ac"] river changed nothing. Lakemeier bowed out in 3rd place, taking home $122,264.05. Heads-up didn’t last very long, as Ruben was simply unstoppable towards the end. On the final hand, Dorel Eldabach three bet after a raise from Ruben. Ruben called, and after the flop of [poker card="Jh"][poker card="8h"][poker card="4c"] flop, he called the all-in from Eldabach. Ruben: [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="6h"] Eldabach: [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2c"] Eldabach’s kings were in the lead, and the kings held on the [poker card="7d"] turn. However, the [poker card="Qh"] river gave Ruben the nut flush, ending the tournament. Eldabach will take home $168,477.54 for his runner up spot, while Ruben earned his first WSOP bracelet and $220,159. Final Table Payouts Bradley Ruben – $220,160 Dorel Eldabach– $168,478 Jens Lakemeier – $122,264 Naman Madan – $88,727 Blaz Zerjav – $64,389 Sami Kelopuro – $46,727 Patrick Serda – $33,910 Tal Peretz – $24,608 Adam Hendrix – $17,858
