  1. [caption width="640"] Kenneth Smaron took down the PokerStars Championship Panama Main Event Monday (PokerStars photo)[/caption] The second PokerStars Championship Main Eventwrapped up Monday night in Panama with Kenneth Smaron navigating his way through a tough final table on his way to winning $293,860. When the final six players bagged up their chips on Sunday night, Russia’s Denis Timofeev had the chip lead and Anthony Diotte, one of two Canadians still in contention, was the shortest. Starting the final day with just 16 big blinds, Diotte was in search of a hand to push with and he found one on just the third hand. Robin Luca Wozniczek raised to 70,000 before Diotte move all in for 450,000 from the big blind. Wozniczek called and turned over [poker card="2d"][poker card="2s"] while Diotte had [poker card="ah"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="8d"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Wozniczek bottom set and all but sealed Diotte’s fate. The [poker card="ac"] turn was no help and the [poker card="8c"] river was a formality as Diotte was sent packing in sixth. Despite the momentum that came with picking up that elimination, Wozniczek was the next to go, a little over 90 minutes later. Jonathan Abdellatif raised to 100,000 from UTG and Wozniczek and Timofeev called from the small and big blinds respectively. The flop was [poker card="6c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3h"] and both Wozniczek and Timofeev checked, allowing Abdellatif to bet 160,000. Wozniczek raised to 380,000 and Timofeev folded. Abdellatif moved all in for 1,760,000 and Wozniczek called all in. Abdellatif turned up [poker card="9h"][poker card="7h"] for a flush draw and double-gutter while Wozniczek turned over [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"] for top pair and a better flush draw. The [poker card="jc"] turn changed nothing but the [poker card="4s"] river gave Abdellatif a straight to eliminate Wozniczek. However, almost two hours later Abdellatif suffered the same fate. Smaron opened to 125,00 from the button and Abdellatif called from the big blind. The flop was [poker card="ad"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4d"], Abdellatif check-raised to 650,000 after Smaron bet 100,000. Smaron called and showed down [poker card="as"][poker card="7h"] for top pair while Abdellatif had a flush draw with [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="8c"] turn and [poker card="8h"] river failed to complete that draw and he was out in fourth. It took over four hours and 101 hands to go from three-handed to heads-up. Smaron raised to 160,000 from the button before Timofeev re-raised to 475,000 from the small blind. Smaron eventually four-bet to 1,100,000, Timofeev moved all in for 2,910,000 and Smaron called. Timofeev showed [poker card="th"][poker card="ts"] and Smaron was racing with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="7c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4s"] flop kept Timofeev ahead. The [poker card="2c"] turn did too but gave Smaron wheel outs. The [poker card="3c"] river gave Smaron a runner-runner straight and eliminated Timofeev in third. Smaron started heads up play with the chip lead and needed only nine hands to finish off Harpreet Gill. On the final hand Gill limped his button, Smaron raised to 350,000 and Gill moved all in for 2,615,000. After some delibieration, Smaron called and tabled [poker card="kc"][poker card="jc"] and Gill showed [poker card="td"][poker card="8c"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"][poker card="9h"] flop kept Smaron firmly ahead. The [poker card="9d"] turn and [poker card="5s"] rier changed nothing, eliminating Gill, who started the day with the second smallest stack, in second place and giving Smaron the Championship. The next PokerStars Championship event is scheduled for March 30 - April 9, 2017 at the City of Dreams in Macau. Final Table Payouts Kenneth Smaron - $293,860 Harpreet Gill - $217,860 Denis Timofeev - $161,340 Jonathan Abdellatif - $119,480 Robin Luca Wozniczek - $88,480 Anthony Diotte - $65,520 James Salmon - $48,520 Byron Kaverman - $35,920
  2. [caption width="640"] Steve O'Dwyer beat Sam Greenwood heads-up to win the PokerStars Championship Panama K High Roller (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Steve O’Dwyer has proven himself to be one of the best poker players in the world over the last 10 years, but he’s shown a real propensity to shine brightest in High Roller events. That was on display again Monday in Panama as O’Dwyer outlasted a talented group of players to win the PokerStars Championship Panama $10K High Roller and $240,451. Just five players remained at the start of the day and the short stack when action re-started was Brazil’s Felipe Ramos. It didn’t take him long to find a spot to get his chips but he ended running into the ultimate cooler. Ramos moved all in from the cutoff and Francois Billard called from the big blind. Ramos turned over [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"] but got the bad news when Billard showed him [poker card="ad"][poker card="ah"]. The board ran out [poker card="qs"][poker card="9h"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2c"] to eliminate Ramos in fifth. It took almost 4.5 hours before the next player was sent packing. Former #1-ranked player Chris Hunichen raised to 125,000 from the button before Billard move all in from the big blind. Hunichen called and was ahead with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"] against Billard’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="9h"][poker card="2c"] flop kept Hunichen in control as did the [poker card="js"] turn, but the [poker card="qs"] river gave Billard a bigger pair and eliminated Hunichen. Just 20 minutes later, Billard followed Hunichen to the cashier. O’Dwyer raised from the button to 115,000 before Billard re-raised to 285,000 from the big blind. O’Dwyer moved all in and Billard called off his remaining stack. O’Dwyer showed [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] and Billard was racing once again with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="8c"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="ks"][poker card="7d"] to eliminate Billard. Heads-up play began with O’Dwyer holding a 4-1 chip lead over Sam Greenwood. After just a few hands of action Greenwood had nearly evened the counts when the two players began talking about a chop. The pair eventually agreed to a deal that gave O’Dwyer $213,862 and Greenwood $223,149, leaving $8,589 to play for. Post-deal play lasted just over 20 minutes before O’Dwyer elminated Greenwood. O’Dwyer raised to 130,000 and Greenwood called. After the [poker card="7d"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2h"] flop, Greenwood checked, O’Dwyer bet 140,000 and Greenwood made it 400,000 to go. O’Dwyer eventually announced he was all in and Greenwood called. O’Dwyer showed [poker card="5s"][poker card="4s"] and Greenwood was ahead with [poker card="qc"][poker card="3s"]. The turn was the [poker card="4h"] putting O’Dwyer ahead and when the [poker card="th"] fell on the river, Greenwood was out and O’Dwyer picked up another high roller win.
