Pavel Plesuv (pictured), who can be found on PocketFives under the user name 3p3nipa, rebounded from a downswing in impressive fashion by taking second in an FTOPS Two-Day Event, winning a separate FTOPS event, and taking down the PokerStars $162 Sunday Six-Max for $122,000 combined… all in just two weeks. --- Follow professional sports tipsters, make your own betting tips, and compete for real cash prizes. Tipdayis the ultimate sports tipping resource. Check it out. --- "I've been playing fewer tables and was trying to play my best," Plesuv told PocketFives, "but of course I was running hot and getting lucky at the same time." As we mentioned, he was coming off a not-so-stellar start to 2014, but he explained, "I understood that all I had to do was continue working on my game, trying to perform the best I can, and I knew the results would come. I think that confidence in yourself plays a big role in getting out of a downswing, so I never gave up." He'll be playing many of the high-stakes SCOOP events on his own dime now and could have had even more of a bankroll had it not been for top-ranked PocketFiver VnilaVader(pictured), who won the FTOPS Two-Day Event, beating Plesuv heads-up. "He played very aggressively," Plesuv said of VnilaVader. "He put a lot of pressure on players and the table wasn't resisting. Since I was trying to keep myself in second position in chips, I was his #1 target, so it wasn't easy. I think he is over-aggressive in some spots, but he definitely knows what he is doing." Plesuv got started in poker five years ago after seeing his college friends reading about strategy and rules. "At the time, I didn't even know about poker," Plesuv admitted. "So, I asked them to show me. I got very interested and give it a shot. I'm still passionate about the game to this day." The Czech player has not one, not two, but three WCOOP Second Chance wins under his belt, which came in 2010, 2012, and 2013. "I've had great success in WCOOPs, which are held in September after an enjoyable summer time," he remarked. "I would say that a good rest was very important both physically and mentally. Taking some time off from poker is very useful and, when you get back to playing, you have a fire in your eyes, if you know what I mean." Before he got into poker, Plesuv was playing pool semi-professionally and was also in university. He still has a few final exams to complete and, after he graduates, you'll see him playing poker more than he currently does. He forecasted, "I'll be playing more live poker during the next few years, hopefully, because I'd like to travel, see the world, and meet different people." Plesuv has $1.3 million in tracked winnings, nearly $1 million of which has come on PokerStars. He's currently at #171 worldwide in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, his highest position ever, and #2 in the Czech Republic poker community. FTOPS runs quarterly on Full Tilt Poker.

To say the Viktor Blom has long been the darling of the online poker world would be a bit of understatement. Whether it was playing the nosebleed stakes games on Full Tilt Poker back in the day or winning the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker in 2013, Blom has always found a way to capture the attention. On Sunday night in Rozvadov, the Swedish powerhouse added a second live win to his resume, coming back from a nearly 9-1 heads-up chip deficit to win the partypoker MILLIONS Germany Main Event for €1,000,000 ($1,048,153 US). Blom started the final table third in chips, but went right to work at changing that. On just the eighth hand of the night, Niko Wieland moved all in for 49,400,000 and Blom reshoved from the small blind. Rickie Silcock folded his big blind and Wieland got the bad news after tabling [poker card="qs"][poker card="jh"] and seeing Blom show [poker card="ah"][poker card="as"]. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="9c"][poker card="kh"] to send Wieland out in eighth place. It took nearly 90 minutes before another player was sent home. Aristeidis Moschonas raised to 7,000,000 from the button and then called after Ondrej Drozd raised to 20,000,000. Drozd then beat 16,000,000 after the [poker card="9h"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5c"] flop before Moschonas moved all in fro 83,600,000. Drozd called and turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"] while Moschonas was behind with just [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="ah"] turn was enough to eliminate Moschanas in seventh. The meaningless river was the [poker card="8d"]. It was yet another 90-minute wait for another elimination and this one again involved Drozd, but he was on the other end of the outcome. From UTG, Drozd moved all in for 106,500,00. Pavel Plesuv was the next player to act and he re-shoved for 362,000,000, forcing the rest of the table to fold. Drozd showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="jd"] but saw Plesuv table[poker card="ad"][poker card="ah"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5s"] flop offered very little help for Drozd and the [poker card="3s"] turn and [poker card="4d"] river made his sixth place elimination official. Radoslaw Wesierski started the final table with the shortest stack but managed to ladder his way up to the final five players before meeting his demise. Action folded to Rickie Silcock in the small blind and he moved all in for 91,000,000. Wesierski called all in from the big blind and showed [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] while Silcock held [poker card="jd"][poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="th"][poker card="8d"][poker card="3d"] flop gave Silcock a flush draw. The [poker card="6c"] turn was no help but the [poker card="2d"] river filled that flish and sent Wesierski out in fifth. Four-handed play lasted 90 minutes before Blom picked up another elimination. From the button, Blom made it 21,000,000 and Brazilian Joao Simao, a former #1-ranked online player in the world, defended his big blind. After the [poker card="kh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"] flop, Simao moved all in for 31,500,000 and Blom called. Simao turned over [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"] while Blom showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="8s"]. The [poker card="2d"] turn was no help for Simao and neither was the [poker card="as"] river, to send him out in fourth place. Plesuv and Silcock clashed just 30 minutes later to get the tournament to heads-up. Plesuv called from the button, Blom folded the small blind and Silcock checked his option. After the [poker card="8d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3s"] flop Silcock checked, Plesuv bet 10,000,000 and Silcock called. Both players checked the [poker card="4h"] turn. Action heated up after the [poker card="2d"] river. Silcock bet 35,000,000 and Plesuv moved all in, forcing Silcock to a decision for his tournament life. He called and showed [poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"] for trip fours but Plesuv showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="5c"] for the wheel to take down the pot. When heads-up play began, Plesuv had just over 55% of the chips in play. Over the first 10 hands of play between the two, Plesuv extended that lead to 86%. From that point on though, Blom navigated his way to even the chip counts before finally taking the lead for good. After 79 hands of battling, Blom raised to 35,000,000 and Plesuv called. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"][poker card="9h"] flop got Plesuv to check-call Blom's 45,000,000 bet. The turn was the [poker card="ad"] and Plesuv check-called Blom's bet of 105,000,000. The river was the [poker card="5h"] and Plesuv moved all in and after taking some time to consider his options, Blom called and showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="6d"] for second pair. Plesuv couldn't beat it though, turning over [poker card="qd"][poker card="7d"] for third pair to give Blom his first live tournament win since 2012. The €5,300 buy-in event, held at King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, drew 1,022 entries for a total prize pool of €5,110,000, just squeaking past the €5,000,000 guarantee. Final Table Payouts Viktor Blom - €1,000,000 Pavel Plesuv - €600,000 Rickie Silcock - €400,000 Joao Simao - €280,000 Radoslaw Wesierski - €200,000 Ondrej Drozd - €140,000 Aristeidis Moschonas - €100,000 Niko Wieland - €70,000
Pavel Plesuv made quick work of the final table at the World Poker Tour Seminole Rock 'N' Roll Poker Open on Wednesday for his second live tournament win of 2018. Plesuv, who won the $3,500 Mid-States Poker Tour Championship at the Venetian in June, eliminated the final three players standing in his way to pick up $504,820 which includes entry to the WPT Tournament of Champions event at the end of the season. The Czech poker pro, who also won a partypoker Powerfest High Roller title in September, started the final table with the biggest stack. After the two short stacks busted, Plesuv went to work. Ravi Raghavan started the final table with 17 big blinds and it didn't take him long to find a spot to get it all in. On just the second hand of the day, Plesuv raised to 175,000 from the cutoff before Raghavan moved all in from the small blind. Marius Gierse re-raised all in from the big blind for 6,100,000 and Plesuv folded. Raghavan turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"] but found himself in trouble after Gierse tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"]. The board ran out [poker card="5s"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="8d"] to eliminate Raghavan in sixth place. Just 13 hands later, Jeremy Joseph raised to 225,000 from UTG before Chris Kennedy called from the button and Plesuv defended his big blind. After the [poker card="9s"][poker card="8c"][poker card="7s"] flop, Plesuv checked, Joseph bet 225,000 and Kennedy moved all for 2,625,000. Plesuv folded, but Kennedy called and turned over [poker card="jd"][poker card="9d"] for top pair with a gutshot. Joseph showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"] for an overpair and then sweated through the [poker card="4h"] turn before the [poker card="kc"] river gave him an unneeded top set to send Kennedy out in fifth. Plesuv's stack got a major boost after taking down a massive pot against Joseph. With the board showing [poker card="8d"][poker card="7c"][poker card="3h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="5c"], Plesuve bet 3,000,000 into the 4,200,000 pot. Joseph used up four of his time banks before calling and getting the bad news after Plesuv showed [poker card="th"][poker card="6c"] for a turned straight. Joseph mucked his [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"] as Plesuv raked in the 10,325,000 pot. On the very next hand, Plesuv picked up even more chips and ended one player's run. James Gilbert raised to 250,000 from the cutoff, Plesuv called from the button before Gierse moved all in for 4,950,000 from the big blind. Gilbert folded but Plesuv called and flipped over [poker card="9d"][poker card="9h"] while Gierse showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"]. The [poker card="7c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3s"][poker card="6d"] runout gave Gierse no help and he was eliminated in fourth. Not surprisingly, Plusev was responsible for the next elimination as well. From the small blind, Plesuv raised to 400,000 and Joseph called from the big blind. After the [poker card="th"][poker card="7c"]6s] flop, Plesuv bet 550,000 and Joseph called. The turn was the [poker card="3h"] and Plesuv lead out again, betting 1,300,000. Joseph raised to 3,500,000 and Plesuv responded by moving all in. Joseph called and showed [poker card="qh"][poker card="9h"] for a flush and straight draw while Plesuv showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="ac"] river was a brick for Joseph and he was sent to the rail in third place. Heads up play began with Plesuv holding a nearly 6-1 chip lead over Gilbert. Despite this it took 68 hands for Plesuv to finish off his final opponent. Gilbert opened to 750,000, Plesuv moved all in and Gilbert called all in. Gilbert was ahead with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9h"] against Plesuv's [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"] but the [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"][poker card="3c"] flop changed that. The [poker card="jc"] turn and [poker card="qh"] river finalized Gilbert's bustout. Final Table Payouts Pavel Plesuv – $504,820 Jim Gilbert – $326,565 Jeremy Joseph – $240,945 Marius Gierse – $179,710 Chris Kennedy – $135,505 Ravi Raghavan – $103,310
