  1. Sunday at the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event saw 344 last-minute registrations put an exclamation point on the second-largest WSOP Main Event of all-time. The 8,569-player field means that sometime next week, one player will walk away with $10,000,000 and the title of World Champion. Day 2C saw the highly-anticipated arrival of Phil Hellmuth and the emergence of a fresh batch of names atop the end-of-day chip counts. Julien Milliard Inches Toward 1 Million Chips, Leads Day 2C Survivors Florida's Julien Milliard almost cracked the seven-figure stack code on Sunday. Milliard finished Day 2C with 947,900 to edge out Czech player Vlastimil Pustina, who ended up with 930,700. Andrew Brokos, co-host of the Thinking Poker podcast, rounded out the top three Day 2C stacks after ending the day with 895,400. The day started with 344 players taking advantage of the last chance to register to push the total Day 2C field to 4,008 players. Just 1,793 of those players made it through the five two-hour levels of play on Saturday. That group will combine on Monday with the 1,087 players who got through Day 2AB as the entire remaining field of 2,880 players will play on the same day for the first time. Eventual Champion Will Earn $10,000,000 Registration closed as the first card was dealt on Sunday and the final numbers show another year of growth for the Main Event and made this year's Main Event the second largest of all-time. A total of 8,569 players generated a total prize pool of $80,548,600. The eventual champion will win $10,000,000 and every player at the final table will earn at least $1,000,000. READ: 2019 WSOP Main Event Second Largest of All-Time, $10M to Champ Phil Hellmuth Arrives, Departs One of the 344 players who registered on Sunday morning was 15-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth. Just back from his vacation to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands, Hellmuth didn't take his seat until well into the first level of play. He didn't sit long. Hellmuth was part of one of the secondary feature tables on the ESPN broadcast and gave fans at home and his tablemates a little taste of The Poker Brat before busting at the hands of Timothy Stanczak's pocket fives. Familiar Faces Stay Alive on Day 2C Three-time bracelet winner Adam Friedman bagged up 549,600 on Sunday to advance to Day 3 with a top 50 stack. Sam Greenwood snuck into that top 50 with 535,800. Mike McDonald continues to apply pressure to those who bet against him, finishing Day 2C with 516,700. Other notables still in include Dario Sammartino (522,700), Jeff Madsen (488,600), Bertrand Grospellier (428,200), David 'ODB' Baker (418,700), Joseph Cheong (354,500), Chino Rheem (286,500) and Nick Schulman (278,000). Defending champ John Cynn battled back from just 24,800 chips to finish with 248,900 at day's end. All-time online poker tournament earnings leader Peter Traply finished with 234,800. Holz, Antonius, Imsirovic Headline Big Names Busting Hellmuth wasn't the only big name who didn't make it through Day 2C. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver Fedor Holz, Patrik Antonius, James Obst, Ali Imsirovic, and Adrian Mateos were all sent to the rail on Sunday. They were joined by John Racener, Ismael Bojang, Matt Berkey, John Monette, John Juanda, Denis Strebkov, Ben Heath, Jonathan Little, Shawn Buchanan, Sam Soverel, Joe McKeehen, Niall Farrell, Maurice Hawkins, and Sam Trickett. Nate Silver was also one of the Day 2C casualties. A Half Dozen Former #1s March On Kevin Saul leads a group of talented poker players who once held onto the #1 ranking on PocketFives.com. The Illinois native finished Day 2C with 623,900. Saul has cashed three times in the WSOP Main Event, most recently in 2016 when he wound up 466th. Saul is joined by fraternity brothers Calvin Anderson (459,400), Cliff Josephy (402,000), Fabrizio Gonzalez (328,800), Chris Hunichen (307,500) and Tim West (130,400). 34 Keystone State Players Survive Day 2C Chad Power leads 34 Pennsylvania poker players who managed to find a bag at the end of Day 2C. Power finished with 401,300 for the 97th-best stack on Sunday. Ralph Wong finished with 344,300 for the second-best PA stack. Kenneth Smaron, Jason Loehrs, and David Vasil round out the top five.

  2. The 2019 Poker Masters kicked off this week and the first event is in the books. Winning Event #1: $10,000 No Limit Hold’em was Isaac Baron. Baron topped the field of 97 entries to take home $223,100. To win the title, Baron topped a final table that included Jeremy Ausmus, Sam Soverel, and Scott Blumstein, and he defeated Chance Kornuth in heads-up play. Kornuth earned $164,900 for his runner-up finish. Event 1 Final Table Results 1st: Isaac Baron - $223,100 2nd: Chance Kornuth - $164,900 3rd: Ralph Wong - $116,400 4th: Jeremy Ausmus - $97,000 5th: Sam Soverel - $77,600 6th: Scott Blumstein - $58,200 7th: Dan Shak - $48,500 8th: Thai Ha - $38,800 [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Baron entered the final table of eight with the chip lead and it was Pennsylvania poker pro Thai Ha to bust first in eighth place. Ha went out at the hands of Ausmus when his [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"] lost to Ausmus’ [poker card="8s"][poker card="7s"] in all-in preflop action. Dan Shak was next to bust, and it was Baron who sent him packing. Ausmus had opened to 120,000 holding the [poker card="As"][poker card="Tc"] with the blinds at 30,000-60,000 with a 60,000 big blind ante, and Baron reraised to 330,000 with pocket fives. Shak, who was on a severe short stack, then called all in for 75,000 with the [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Jd"]. Ausmus folded, and it was off to the races for Baron and Shak. No help came for Shak and he was out in seventh place. Although Soverel busted Blumstein in sixth place, he was the next one to bust, and it was once again Baron doing the deed. Baron’s [poker card="As"][poker card="Ac"] held up against Soverel’s [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"] and Soverel was out fifth. After Ausmus was knocked out in fourth and Ralph Wong in third, both at the hands of Baron, it was time for the heads-up match between Baron and Kornuth. Entering the duel, Baron had 8.415 million in chips to Kornuth’s 1.29 million. The two wasted no time getting the money in, as Baron shoved with the [poker card="5c"][poker card="3c"] against Kornuth and his stack of 10 big blinds. Kornuth looked at the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"] and made the call. Unfortunately for Kornuth, the board ran out [poker card="Th"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="Qd"][poker card="Kc"] to give Baron the victory. With the win, Baron took the early lead in the race for the overall Poker Masters title with 300 points. The player to earn the most points over the course of the series will be crowned Poker Masters champion and receive a $100,000 bonus plus the trophy purple jacket.
  3. Lauren Roberts overcame a final table full of end bosses to win Event #3 of the 2019 US Poker Open and a career-best tournament score of $218,400. Roberts outlasted the likes of Sean Winter, Brandon Adams, and Stephen Chidwick before overcoming a 3-1 chip deficit to beat Koray Aldemir heads-up for the win. Final Table Payouts Lauren Roberts - $218,400 Koray Aldemir - $159,250 Stephen Chidwick - $113,750 Brandon Adams - $91,000 Sean Winter - $72,800 Ralph Wong - $54,600 Rodger Johnson - $45,500 Within minutes of the official seven-handed final table beginning, Chidwick went to work. Rodger Johnson was down to just over six big blinds and moved all in with the [poker card="qc"][poker card="jh"]. Chidwick called with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="jd"]. The board ran out [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4d"] to eliminate Johnson in seventh place. It took more than an hour before another player was sent packing. Aldemir raised to 750,000 with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"] before Ralph Wong moved all in with the [poker card="3c"][poker card="3s"]. Aldemir called and the [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="7d"] flop moved Aldemir in front. He stayed there through the [poker card="9h"] turn and [poker card="ah"] river and Wong was out in sixth place. Ten minutes later, Aldemir scored an important double up against Winter, who was chip leader at the time. Aldemir raised to 210,000 with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] and Winter jammed from the button with the [poker card="as"][poker card="js"]. Aldemir survived the runout to double into the lead. Winter lasted just over an hour on the short stack. Action folded to Aldemir the big blind and he moved all with the [poker card="8s"][poker card="3d"] and Winter called with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="8d"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Aldemir top pair and Winter could only watch as the [poker card="jd"] turn and [poker card="4h"] river ended his tournament with a fifth-place finish. Adams got down to his last 2.5 big blinds and couldn't find a double up to stay alive. Adams moved all in for 285,000 with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="8d"] from the button before Chidwick called with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="3c"] from the small blind. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2h"] flop left Adams with options but the [poker card="as"] turn took them all away. The meaningless river was the [poker card="jd"] and Adams was out in fourth. Despite picking up that elimination, Chidwick found himself in a spot he couldn't escape from. Roberts folded her button, Aldemir moved all in with the [poker card="4h"][poker card="4h"] and Chidwick called all for 3,010,000 with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4s"] flop gave Aldemir a set. The [poker card="8h"] turn ended any hope for Chidwick and he was eliminated in third place. This finish was Chidwick's seventh career USPO cash in just 11 events. Aldemir began heads-up play with nearly 75% of the chips in play, but through 45 minutes of play, Roberts flipped the script after scoring a double up with the [poker card="ks"][poker card="qc"] against the [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"]. She then picked off a bluff on a [poker card="tc"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="as"][poker card="jh"] board with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] to double into the lead for the first time. Two minutes later, Roberts finished Aldemir off. Aldemir moved all in for 9.5 big blinds with the [poker card="qc"][poker card="3h"] and Roberts called with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="4d"]. The board ran out [poker card="6c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="8c"] to give Roberts the nut flush and the title.

  4. Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas, Kristen Bicknell made history by becoming the first woman to win a Poker Masters title after defeating a final table that included current Purple Jacket points leader Chance Kornuth and defending Purple Jacket champion Ali Imsirovic. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] “It feels incredible to win this event. I final tabled the World Poker Tour event last week and I did not feel happy with my final table play, so that run was kind of bittersweet. I wasn’t planning on playing this tournament but I felt the itch and in Las Vegas and I’m very happy with how it played out,” Bicknell said. A cooler just three minutes into the day sent one player to the rail. Ben Heath moved all-in from UTG for 125,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kd"]. Action folded to Ralph Wong in the small blind and he called with [poker card="ad"][poker card="6c"] before Andras Nemeth moved all-in for 525,000 from the big blind [poker card="ah"][poker card="as"] forcing Wong to fold. The board ran out [poker card="9h"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] to bust Heath in sixth place. Less than 10 minutes, action folded to Wong on the button and he moved all in for 590,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"]. Nemeth folded his small blind but Kornuth called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4h"] flop kept Kornuth ahead and the [poker card="ah"] turn kept Wong drawing to a nine but the [poker card="7s"] failed to connect and he was out in fifth. Kornuth moved all-in from UTG with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5s"] and Nemeth called from the big blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="3h"]. Nemeth failed to connect on the [poker card="8h"][poker card="4d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="th"] board and was eliminated in fourth place. Kornuth continued to be the aggressor and it resulted in finding yet another victim. Bicknell folded the button and Kornuth moved all in for 1,050,000 withh [poker card="jc"][poker card="3c"] and Ali Imsirovic called all-in with [poker card="ks"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4s"] flop was a safe one for Imsirovic, but the [poker card="js"] turn gave Kornuth the advantage before the [poker card="jd"] river finished Imsirovic off in third. Heads-up play began with Bicknell holding 3,470,000 of the 6,375,000 chips in play. Over the next two hours, Bicknell and Kornuth each took turns with the lead before Bicknell captured it for the final time and finished Kornuth off. Bicknell moved all-in with [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"] and Kornuth called all-in with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9h"]. The [poker card="7c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4h"] flop gave Bicknell a gutshot straight draw. The [poker card="ac"] turn was a brick but the [poker card="6c"] river completed her straight and gave her first Poker Masters title. This marked the third time in six Poker Masters events this year that Kornuth finished as the runner-up. He previously came second to Isaac Baron in Event #1 and Ryan Laplante in Event #2 and now leads the Purple Jacket championship standings by more than double any other player. Final Table Payouts Kristen Bicknell - $408,000 Chance Kornuth - $267,500 Ali Imsirovic - $178,500 Andras Nemeth - $127,000 Ralph Wong - $102,000 Ben Heath - $76,500 David Stamm - $63,750 Elio Fox - $51,000 Purple Jacket Standings Chance Kornuth - 630 Kristen Bicknell - 300 Isaac Baron - 300 Ryan Laplante - 300 Julien Martini - 300 Jared Bleznick - 300 Jonathan Depa - 300 Sam Soverel - 270 Jorryt van Hoof - 270 Alex Foxen - 270
