  1. He's back. After spending much of the last few years out of the poker spotlight, Phil Ivey made a statement over the past five days by beating some of the world's best poker players on his way to earning the inaugural World Poker Tour Heads Up Poker Championship title and $400,000. The $25,000 buy-in event was played online via PokerKing, though most of the 32 invitees were at a resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and played each face-to-face. The field included a number of the top players in the world, high stakes regulars, along with a selection of influencers and streamers from outside of
  2. When the inaugural World Poker Tour Heads Up Poker Championship was announced last month, the tournament clearly had the chance to become one of the most exciting events of the year. Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Nick Schulman, and Nick Petrangelo were among the names initially confirmed for the $25,000 buy-in event. On Monday, poker fans got their first look at the rest of the 32-player field. Along with the four aforementioned superstars, the field includes multiple former WPT Player of the Year winners, high stakes cash game regulars, and some of the best players in the game today. But as the
  3. Hosted by Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters, The Fives Poker Podcast runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker. This week on The Fives, co-hosts Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters recap Phil Ivey's appearance on the DAT Poker Podcast and explain why Donnie is - at least temporarily - back on the Phil Ivey Fan Train. They also recap the second round of the Daniel Negreanu vs. Phil Hellmuth High Stakes Duel II battle which saw Hellmuth walk away with another victory to move to 5-0 in that format. Ryan Beauregard, Executive D
  4. A new episode of High Stakes Poker on PokerGO came with a new cast filled with some of the biggest names to take a seat this season and wrapped up with two superstars clashing in what will undoubtedly be one of the most talked about hands in the history of the show. Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Bryn Kenney were joined by James Bord, Brandon Steven, Jake Daniels, and making his Season 8 debut, Doug Polk. Dwan wasn't seated when play began, leaving action to start seven-handed. After the second hand of the night, where Bord scooped a $36,900 pot with [poker card="6c"][poker card="4h"],
  5. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the land poker players were playing, getting in one last hand. The bad-regs were grinding at the tables with care in hopes that some run good soon would be theirs. The locals were nestled, all snug in their seats, with visions of jackpots brought on by bad beats. Playing live on the strip, no PokerBros app. Is that Mike Postle with his phone in his lap? When out in the lobby, someone backed up a truck. I sprang from my seat to see what the f**k. There was Doug Polk celebrating a win, and Joey beside him, a shit-eating grin. Th
  6. This year was the worst. The stress, worry, and isolation that was a big part of the global pandemic seemed to affect every part of everyday life. And while online poker received a renaissance of sorts, all of the biggest and best live poker tours were put on pause. The World Series of Poker, the World Poker Tour, and the European Poker Tour have all gone dark and the one "poker tour" that got away with a live stop, the Midway Poker Tour, tried to pay its players with gold bullions or some shit. So, yeah, all around this year sucked. But before anyone gets to break through to the other s
  7. Every year, history is made at the World Series of Poker. In 2018, poker fans were inundated with amazing accomplishments from some of the most notable names in the game. At the 49th annual WSOP, there was no shortage of superior stories and top-flight headlines to be had to help to make this summer series one for the ages. As the day-to-day details of the WSOP slowly fade from memory, there are some stories from this summer that will be retold for years to come. Here’s a look back at the stories that kept everyone buzzing during the 2018 WSOP. Cynn For The Win There’s always at lea
  8. One of the summer’s biggest surprises arrived here in the final days of the 49th Annual World Series of Poker. Fresh off his fifth-place finish in the 2018 Main Event, 2009 Main Event Champion Joe Cada found a way to close out Event #75: $1,500 The Closer for his second bracelet of the series. At the same time that Cada was making history, the massive $1,000,000 Big One For One Drop saw some of the biggest names in poker enter in what, no doubt, be an explosive finish for another epic WSOP. Cada Is The Closer When Joe Cada busted in fifth-place in the 2018 Main Event, he didn’t speak
  9. In what felt like a flash, the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event suddenly just has 310 players left with Barry Hutter standing on top of the entire field. Sunday's play started with 1,182 players all still hoping to become World Champ, but over 5.5 two-hour levels of play, 872 players were shown the door. Hutter managed to do some damage on Day 4 and ended up bagging nearly six million and the chip lead. Four former #1-ranked PocketFivers managed to advance to Day 5 with Shaun Deeb ending with the highest chip count at 2,175,000. Cliff Josephy (1,985,000), Paul Volpe (1,070,000) and
  10. The weekend brought out all of the superstars to the halls of the Rio for the 49th Annual World Series of Poker. As one more tournament came to a conclusion, one of the largest tournaments of the summer, the Millionaire Maker, saw thousands of players begin their latest journey. Here’s a wrap-up of everything that happened on Saturday (June 9) at the WSOP. Zhigalov Wins H.O.R.S.E. It only took 20 minutes on an unscheduled Day 4 for Andrey Zhigalov to defeat Timothy Frazin heads-up in Event #15: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. Zhigalov wins the $202,787 first place prize and his first career WSOP gold
  11. In 2020, the action of the World Series of Poker looks to be taking place entirely online. And as he has been in years past, Daniel Negreanu is here for all of it. Last week it was announced that the 2020 World Series of Poker was pivoting to a schedule of 85 online gold bracelet events in response to the live summer series indefinite postponement. The first half of the schedule offers 31 bracelets to online players in Nevada and New Jersey on WSOP.com. The remaining 54 bracelet events will be taking place on GGPoker where, for the first time, players outside the U.S. can compete in a WSOP
  12. For many who take the game of poker seriously, they can point to another player who has had a profound effect on their game. Whether it’s emerging from obscurity to win the Main Event of the World Series of Poker, pulling off heart-stopping bluffs on High Stakes Poker, or crushing the nosebleed stakes of online poker, some of the best poker players in the world have helped to inspire generations of new players find their way in poker. We've spoken with some of the biggest stars in the game today about who it their poker idols are. Brazil’s Vivian Saliba first gained the attention of the
  13. Hosted by Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters, The Fives Poker Podcast runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker.

The guys also preview the upcoming WSOP events on GGPoker a
  14. Day 1C of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event was definitely one for the record books, but it was also one of the strangest days in the 50-year history of the event. As more and more players piled into the Rio, two were escorted out by police and then Mother Nature had her say as well, as an earthquake shook Las Vegas and disrupted the tournament in an unprecedented way. Starting Flight Record Broken, Overall Record Close Last summer, 4,571 players made Day 1C of the 2018 Main Event the largest starting flight in the history of the WSOP. That record fell on Friday, as 4,879 players
  15. The World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players Championship is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the entire world. It’s full of elite players. Those that are considered to the best of the best will tell you that it’s the most meaningful poker tournament to them, while others spend entire careers just trying to build up enough skill, experience, respect, and bankroll to simply compete in it. When it comes to the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, who are the best? That’s what we're going to take a look at here. The event’s first year was in 2006 and it drew 143 entries. David 'Chip
  16. [caption width="640"] Daniel Negreanu and Kevin Hart are just two players that could round out the field of the PokerCentral Super High Roller Bowl (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Just about two weeks ago, Aria poker room management was faced with a difficult decision. When registration opened for the 2017 PokerCentral Super High Roller Bowl, a total of 54 players put down a deposit to lock up their spot in the $300,000 buy-in event. Only problem was there were only 35 spots open to the public while the other 15 spots in the 50-player event were being held for invited players only. Degens
  17. [caption width="640"] Phil Ivey loses court case against London casino[/caption] Phil Ivey has officially lost his £7.7 million UK-based court case against London’s Crockfords Club. As previously reported in The Guardian, Ivey, arguably one of the most famous poker players on the planet, had challenged a 2016 majority decision in the court of appeals which dismissed his multi-million dollar claim against Genting Casinos UK, the parent company of the Crockfords Club in Mayfair. The entire case stems from two days in August 2012 when Ivey and an associate, Chueng Yin Sun, brought
  18. A few days ago, Dan Cates (pictured), who is known as junglemanonline, posted the following on Twitter rather nonchalantly: "Sooo Manila didn't go well, only lost about 38m hkd(5m usd)... Gonna play some 5/10 online and take another shot." Yes, not going "well" meant losing $5 million in high-stakes cash games in Manila. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs
  19. It was a good weekend to be high-stakes poker pro Sebastian Ruthenberg (pictured), who according to HighStakesDBwas up $570,000 total on Saturday and Sunday. He plays under the handle taktloss47on Full Tilt and raked in $209,000 on Saturday. The German followed that up with a $361,000 haul on Sunday. The action on Sunday happened at Full Tilt's Triple Draw tables, where Ruthenberg won $20,000 from Viktor Isildur1Blom at stakes of $500/$1,000. Then, it was on to a three-handed game that involved Phil Ivey and SanIker, the latter of whom Ruthenberg eventually took for $82,000. By the time he
  20. [caption width="640"] Jason Somerville is bringing the Aussie Millions to Twitch[/caption] There's an entire generation that grew up playing or watching Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego? It was a game show and series of video games developed to teach kids geography as they took the clues provided and attempted to capture the criminal mastermind Carmen Sandiego. There's an entire generation of poker players and fans that are learning geography, but it's not a fedora-wearing, redheaded villain, but rather a 28-year-old poker-playing, live-streaming New Yorker who is showing his ever
  21.

  22. More details have emerged in Borgata's lawsuit against poker legend Phil Ivey, his supposedly accomplice Cheng Yin Sun, and card manufacturer Gemaco. Ivey (pictured) and Sun are being accused of using a technique known as "edge-sorting" to make off with $9.8 million at the baccarat tables, while Gemaco is being sued for producing the flawed cards that allowed the pair to gain the statistical edge over the casino. According to the lawsuit, Ivey contacted Borgata in April 2012 with a list of demands for playing a session of high-stakes baccarat at $50,000 a hand. Those demands included a dea
  23. According to NJ.comand a variety of other outlets, the Borgatain Atlantic City has filed suit against poker pro Phil Ivey (pictured) over a $9.6 million baccarat win that occurred two years ago. The site explained, "While playing,Ivey allegedly cheated by fixating on pattern flaws on the back of the cards, a technique commonly known as 'edge sorting,' according to the lawsuit." If all of this sounds familiar, it's because it is. In 2012, the same year Borgata alleged the cheating at its casino took place, Ivey booked a £7.3 million win at Punto Banco at Crockfords in London, but that casino
  24. We're three months away from the second-ever running of the World Series of Poker's Big One for One Drop, a charity tournament with a hefty $1 million buy-in that last took place in 2012.
