  1. Richard 'raconteur' Grykosurvived a nearly 5 1/2 hour long heads-up battle with Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leahto win the €3,250 Eight Max Pot Limit Omaha event at WSOP Europe and his first career bracelet Tuesday in Berlin. The win also came with a €126,345 ($143,793 US) payday. Like many first-time WSOP bracelet winners, Gryko was overwhelmed by what he had just accomplished. "I haven't really begun to process it, to be honest. All I can say is I've been a poker player since well before I should legally have been a poker player. So, a long time has been leading up to today," said Gryko after his win. "The sight of the river card… I've never given a fist pump for winning a tournament before. That alone should tell you how much it means." The final table could easily be told as two stories. It took just over two hours to go from eight players to two. Ismael Bojang, making his fourth WSOP final table appearance this year, was the first elimination of the day, falling to Gryko just about 30 minutes into the start of the day. Max Pescatori, who started as the shortest stack, managed to avoid being the first one eliminated but couldn't muster much more, falling in seventh at the hands of Mikkel Plum. That's when Leah went to work. Leah eliminated the next four players in a little over an hour. Benjamin Pollak went out in sixth, Lawrence Lazar was eliminated in fifth, Roberto Romanello busted in fourth, and Plum was Leah's final victim, going out in third place. That domination got Leah heads-up against Gryko with a 2-1 chip lead. However, that would be as close as Leah got to bracelet number two. Gryko took the lead for the first time after just an hour of heads-up play. Gryko raised to 24,000, Leah called, and the two saw a flop of Ac Ts 4h. Leah check-called Gryko's 26,000 bet. After the Jh on the turn, Leah bet 66,000 and Gryko called. The river was the 7s and Leah bet 165,000 and Gryko called. Leah showed Ad 8d 8h 7h for two pair, but Gryko turned over Kc 9c 8s 4s for a rivered straight. After that hand, Gryko continued to chip away at Leah's stack and eventually busted him just after 8:30pm local time. Leah's runner-up performance came nearly one year after his first bracelet win at WSOP APAC 2014. In WSOP events this year, he's cashed ten times, made three final tables, and banked $230,000 in earnings. Gryko has had most of his career success in his native England. In August, he won the United Kingdom Poker Championships Six-Max High-Roller for £30,000 ($46,887 US) and this is his third six-figure score but first since 2009 when he won a GUKPT event in Luton, England. The next WSOP Europe final table is the €1,650 Monster Stack No Limit Hold'em event on Wednesday. Final Table Payouts Richard Gryko - €126,345 Mike Leah - €78,150 Mikkel Plum - €55,755 Roberto Romanello - €40,480 Lawrence Lazar - €29,940 Benjamin Pollak - €22,535 Max Pescatori - €17,240 Ismael Bojang - €13,445
  2. It's only Day 4 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker but Roman d'Rome0pro' Romanovsky has already secured his second title of the series after defeating his friend Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard heads-up in Event #16 (High). Romanovsky took down Event #2 (High) for $123,935 just days ago and repeated his triumph yesterday after Leonard, and he agreed to a chop before playing out for the title. The Ukrainian took away $135,121 for the win, and Leonard banked $109,898 to help 'TeamBITBRYE' extend their series prop bet lead over 'Team Sweden'. https://twitter.com/plenopads/status/994393136221900800 'Cem1994' was Day 4's highest earner after they became Event #11 (High) Super Tuesday champion for $183,292. 'despedespi33' took second-place for $133,081 after 1,149 entrants came together to create a $1.1M prize pool. There was a career-best online result of $66,395 for Brazil's Everton 'Bitoks' Becker after he won Event #11 (Medium) Mini-Super Tuesday. The Brazilian agreed to a deal with 'MonkeyRush88', who took away $56,503 in second after the UK's Richard 'raconteur' Gryko had departed in third-place for $35,564. Another bumper SCOOP field appeared in Event #11 (Low) as 15,003 entrants paid the $11 tournament fee to create a $147,000 prize pool. After 15,000 players had departed the field, the final three agreed to a deal. 'TazutZ' finished in third-place for $11,664, 'Chick2345' took the silver medal for $11,695, which left 'theillwill' to scoop the title alongside $14,083. 'CAZZETTEE', who narrowly missed out on the win in Monday's Event #3 (Medium) after taking second-place for $45,723, went one better in Event #10 (High) after they won the $2,100 Razz for $51,940. The final table action also saw Canada's Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah finish in sixth-place for $10,600 and Dzmitry 'Colisea' Urbanovich score $19,080 in fourth. 'aidanb4' took the top spot in Event #3 (Low) after coming through the 2,184 player field to win $7,426. While 'Maicoshaa', who won Event #9 (High) during last year's series, added another victory to their name, this time in Event #10 (Medium) for $17,024. Event #16 (Low) comprised of a $55 Six-Max Turbo High Roller tournament which saw 'ale6ka' come through the 5,977 field after they defeated '[Ro]Cristy' to win the $42,475 first-place. The $530 Six-Max Turbo Event #16 (Medium) was won by 'elhilario' for $75,035 after they came through a final table featuring PocketFives world no.#24 'th'Kick' and two-time PokerStars Super Tuesday champion Christopher 'Apotheosis92' Kruk.
