  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. Next up on the European Poker Tour schedule is EPT Prague. The event heads to Casino Atrium Prague at the Hilton Prague December 7-18, for a plentiful festival that includes 43 events. EPT Prague is anchored by the €5,300 Main Event running December 12-18 and the series will also award two Platinum Passes to the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship. In addition to the €5,300 Main Event, the EPT Prague schedule features the €1,100 buy-in EPT National event December 8-12, the €50,000 buy-in EPT Super High Roller December 10-12, and the €10,300 buy-in EPT High Roller December 16-18. Prague Known for Its Big Numbers EPT Prague is one of the European Poker Tour’s most iconic stops, and it never fails to deliver with impressive field sizes and large payouts. If you include the one-year rebranded PokerStars Championship Prague in 2017, the Prague Main Event has attracted 9,065 entries over the years and generated a total of €43.8 million in prize money. That’s an average field size of 824 entries and an average prize pool of nearly €4 million. The first-place prize has averaged nearly €750,000, too. France’s Arnaud Mattern was the first EPT Prague Main Event winner when he took the crown back in 2007, and other past winners include Roberto Romanello in 2010, Martin Finger in 2011, and Stephen Graner in 2014. Jasper Van Putten won the largest EPT Prague Main Event, topping a field of 1,192 entries in 2016 to win €699,300 after a heads-up deal was made with Marton Czuczor. Graner’s €969,000 prize from 2014 remains the largest first-place payout in EPT Prague Main Event history. The €10,300 buy-in High Roller has also been a favorite of players heading to Prague. First installed in 2010, this event has attracted a total of 1,584 entries and generated more than €16.6 million in prize money. The €1,100 buy-in National tournament is Prague’s best mid-tier offering and known to attract tons of players, with 9,746 entries across six years and a total of €9.45 million dished out. That’s an average field size of more than 1,600 runners. Two Platinum Pass Packages Up for Grabs EPT Prague will award two coveted Platinum Pass packages, valued at $30,000 each. The packages include a $25,000 entry into the PSPC tournament in the Bahamas in January 2019, six nights’ accommodation at the Atlantis Resort in Nassau, and $2,000 in travel expenses and room folio credit. Details on how to win a Platinum Pass during EPT Prague have yet to be released, but stay tuned to PocketFives.com for an update. The Czech Republic Capital Delivers Off the Felt, Too If you’re a fan of poker and the winter holiday season, there are few places better than Prague in the month of December for the EPT’s trip there. The city is absolutely beautiful at this time of year, dressed from head to toe in holiday garb with incredible sights and delicious treats to delight. For the adventurers out there, Prague has a few must-see attractions, starting with the Charles Bridge and Old Town Square. Taking a stroll across the 14th Century Charles Bridge is simply charming. It’s as picturesque as anywhere in the world and comes full of life. Prague’s Old Town Square has become a favorite of anyone who travels to EPT Prague. The historic streets are lined with restaurants and holiday vendors for you to grab a bite or a pint while listening to live music or enjoying one of the many street performers putting on a show. While you’re down in Old Town Square, make sure you check out the Prague Astronomical Clock. The medieval clock is the oldest astronomical clock in the world that is still in operation. As you continue to stroll around town, you may want to check out Prague Castle. It’s stunning and provides amazing views of the city.

  3. Over 9,000 Twitch viewers saw popular streamer and 888poker ambassador Parker 'Tonkaaa' Talbot take the silver medal in the PokerStars Sunday Million for $124,114 following a heads-up deal with eventual winner 'PokerDave476'. Talbot, who enjoyed success on the live poker felt after a sixth-place finish in the PokerStars EPT Prague Main Event last month for $203,626, agreed to a chop with 'PokerDave476' following 'Rus_us8''s exit in third place for $77,622. With $20,000 in the prize pool still to play for, the poker fans flocked to Talbot's Twitch stream to see if the Canadian could go all the way. Both players started with even chips before Talbot took a 2-1 lead, but the U.K.'s 'PokerDave476' pulled it back and was ultimately crowned victor for $144,114. Both players achieved their biggest online cashes to date in the process and added six-figures to their bankrolls. https://twitter.com/tonkaaaap/status/1087259669591150592?s=20 'Secret_M0d3' took down the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $48,431 after a heads-up deal with Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar. PokerStars Team Pro Igor Kurganov was the first player to fall from the final table of nine before his fellow Team Pro, and girlfriend Liv Boeree just missed out on a place on the podium after she finished in fourth-place for $24,182. Russia's 'Futti18' took the bronze for $45,435, before the final two agreed to a deal. 'Secret_M0d3' then got the better of Korsar during heads-up and banked $48,431, with Korsar settling for $45,435. 'Bjuran' came through a 1,005 player-field in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller to win over $76,000. 'DanielLUCKY' took the bronze medal for $22,243 + $7,710 in bounties and paved the way for the heads-up match. Germany's 'Tydarax' fell as runner-up for an online best score of $30,346 + $9,811, which left 'Bjuran' to be named the victor. 1,058 runners in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up created a $211,600 prize pool and a $34,334 first-place prize. Among the players at the final table looking to take down the title were PocketFivers 'Easterdamn', 'newguy89 ', and 'LlKE A G6', but they all hit the rail before the well-known 'girafganger7' binked a bronze medal worth $17,749. 'Dabledore7' was then the unlucky final player to depart and took away $24,685 as runner-up with Russia's 'Egor699' claiming the gold medal and top prize. 'Mr.Water99' got the better of partypoker ambassador Anatoly 'NL_Profit' Filatov heads-up to take down the partypoker $1,050 Deepstack-HR. A field of 111 players created a $111,000 prize pool with 'chadi6969' taking the third-place prize worth $13,875. Filatov was looking to score another victory on his partner site, but was unable to get through the challenge from his opponent and exited as runner-up $19,425, with 'Mr.Water99' banking $27,195 as the winner. 'pockjack0' saw off the challenge of 61 opponents in the partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller to claim victory for $50,375. The prize pool was set at $155,000, and just beat the $150,000 guarantee. When the final eight came together Canadian High Roller Sam 'DeanMalenko' Greenwood was the first player to hit the rail, followed by partypoker ambassador Roberto 'Welsh_Wizard' Romanello who departed in seventh-place and eventually saw his team-mate Patrick Leonard eliminated in third-place for $22,475. 'RedDwarf9' was then the final player that 'pockjack0' needed to depart for victory, and the former fell with the silver medal for $34,000.

  4. 'benasg' came through a colossus 13,228 player-field in the PokerStars Sunday Million to turn $109 into $129,213. This was just the second week of the revamped lower buy-in event, and it once again proved popular with the prize pool set at $1,322,800. PocketFiver Jonathan 'Gil3000' Gill just missed out on a place at the final table, after he fell in 10th place, before 'parisjoe', 'Fieldmice1', 'FiltrMan', 'Japa Bill', 'XuYandex', and 'verkannt' departed to leave the final three. 'pharaohus' ultimately took the bronze medal for $68,043, before 'Barkieboy NL' just fell short of the title and walked away with $93,762, which left 'benasg' to claim the glory. A heads-up deal in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up paved the way for 'dadowiec' to claim this week's title, with Finland's 'Hasseh922' finishing in second place. The entrants total once again crept over four-figures with 1,099 players creating a $219,800 prize pool. 'Tomatee' ended their deep run with a strong $18,437 score in third-place before the final two shook virtual hands on a money-deal. 'Hasseh922' then found themselves as the final player to hit the rail and took $28,847 for their share of the deal, as 'dadowiec' sat the top of the podium for $32,460. 'MCvisitor' defeated '8_Spizzico_9' heads-up to claim victory in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for over $81,000. 1,090 entrants created a $545,000 prize pool, with 'Progre69' walking away with over $23,000 for a fourth-place finish. Phil 'philroyal888' Mighall took the bronze medal for $23,822 + $2,738 in bounties, before '8_Spizzico_9' fell at the hands of 'MCvisitor' and departed as runner-up with $32,500 + $7,809. 'Remi Lebo_10' just pipped Anatoly 'NL_Profit' Filatov to victory in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller and banked $53,919 in the process. The prize pool was set at $246,000 after 123 entrants stumped up the mega-bucks buy-in. Former PocketFives World #1 Calvin 'cal42688' Anderson claimed third place for $31,939, which left Filatov in pursuit of his third gold medal of 2019. But 'Remi Lebo_10' had other ideas and sent the Russian to the rail in second place for $41,498. But Filatov wasn't done there and continued his rich vein of form with a third-place finish in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller for $23,000. The partypoker ambassador's exit paved the way for a heads-up battle between 'haddoken' and 'RedDwarf9', and it was the former who held on to win the $44,260 first-place prize, with 'RedDwarf' having to settle for the $31,800 runners-up prize. The new partypoker $3,150 Super Sunday High Roller attracted 66 entrants and saw 'MisterN411' taking away the biggest share of the $200k guaranteed prize pool. partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard was among those to reach the final table but departed in sixth place for $11,000.

  6. Lukas Zaskodny might never leave King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. The Czech pro has already won himself a World Series of Poker bracelet and a WSOP Circuit ring there and on Sunday he added a career-best score to his resume after he took down the partypoker MILLIONS Europe Main Event. Zaskodny started the final table third in chips, just behind Romain Lewis but well behind Charlie Carrel. It took only 15 minutes for the final table to go from eight players to seven. From UTG, Carrel raised to 3,200,000 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"] only to have Rastislav Paleta make it 13,000,000 to go with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] as the next player to act. Carrel moved all in and Paleta called with his tournament life at stake. The [poker card="js"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6h"][poker card="jd"][poker card="3c"] runout wasn't able to bail out Paleta and he was eliminated in eighth place while Carrel increased his chip-leading stack to nearly 90 big blinds. The next three hours couldn't have gone any worse for Carrel. Josef Snejberg, Roberto Romanello, and Severin Schleser each doubled up through Carrel leaving the British poker pro as the short stack. Down to just nine big blinds, Carrel moved all in from the hijack with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qh"] and Snejberg called from the small blind with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. The board ran out [poker card="jh"][poker card="2d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] to end Carrel's run in seventh place. Pocket nines were responsible for the next elimination as well, this time on the other side of the winning hand. Action folded to Lewis in the cutoff and he moved all in for 45,700,000 with [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"] and Romanello called all in from the big blind with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"] flop more than double Lewis' outs. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] but the [poker card="ah"] gave Lewis Broadway and ended Romanello's run in sixth. Zaskodny picked up his first elimination of the final table 90 minutes later. Zaskodny opened to 11,000,000 from late position with [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"] before Sam Grafton shoved for 38,600,000 from the small blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"]. Zaskodny called and then watched the dealer fan out a [poker card="qs"][poker card="9d"][poker card="7s"] flop to give him bottom set against Grafton's top pair and backdoor straight draw. The [poker card="5h"] turn ended Grafton's run and he exited in fifth after the [poker card="ac"] hit the river. It took an hour before the next bust out happened, and once again it was Zaskodny doing the work. Zaskodny raised from the small blind with [poker card="qc"][poker card="4h"] and Severin Schleser called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. The flop came [poker card="qs"][poker card="th"][poker card="4s"] to give Zaskodny two pair. The Czech bet 11,500,000 and Schleser called again. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] and Zaskodny fired out a bet of 25,000,000 and Schleser responded by moving all in for 57,500,000. Zaskodny called and then sweated the river card, only to see the [poker card="jc"] complete the board and eliminate Schleser in fourth place. Just a few minutes later, the tournament went from three-handed to heads-up with an all-in preflop battle of the blinds. Zaskodny folded his button and Romain Lewis moved all in for 80,500,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="9h"] and Snejberg called from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="7h"][poker card="4s"] gave Snejberg a huge lead and while the [poker card="9s"] turn helped Lewis, the [poker card="5c"] river finished him off in third place. Heads-up play started with Zaskodny holding 312,000,000 of the 504,000,000 chips in play. The two players agreed to a deal that guaranteed Zaskodny €806,770 and Snejberg €718,230 and left €100,000 and the title to play for. Play lasted for about an hour before Zaskodny put a bow on his first major title by eliminating Snejberg. Zaskodny moved all in with [poker card="tc"][poker card="th"] and Snejberg called off his last 98,000,000 (12 BBs) with [poker card="as"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5d"] flop changed nothing and neither did the [poker card="5h"] turn or [poker card="6d"] river, giving Zaskodny the extra €100,000 and the victory while Snejberg was eliminated as the runner-up. Final Table Payouts Lukas Zaskodny - €906,770* Josef Snejberg - €718,230* Romain Lewis - €428,000 Severin Schleser - €300,000 Sam Grafton - €220,000 Roberto Romanello - €170,000 Charlie Carrel - €130,000 Rastislav Paleta - €100,000
  7. Former world-ranked #1 Steven 'SvZff' van Zadelhoff topped a 62-player field in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller to win $38,529. With seven places paid, 'x_zola25', 'kissyingui', and 'jays94' all cashed before RYE's 'bencb789' hit the rail in fourth place for $14,419. Sweden's Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar then took the bronze medal for $20,009, before 'edoiler' departed at the last for $27,765 and Van Zadelhoff was crowned the victor. For the second week running, the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million played out as a progressive knockout, with 14,139 entrants taking to the virtual tables. The prize pool reached $1,413,900, although this was over $200,000 less than the previous week. When just three players remained, 'Apoutsos' saw their chances of victory ended for $36,028 + $8,609 in bounties before the final two agreed to a chop and battled heads-up for the bounties. 'Armin2188' ultimately departed as runner-up for $59,038 + $16,188, and Brazil's 'FKAXM', who won a SCOOP Low title back in May, secured the win for $59,038 + $29,705. Matthew 'mjw006' Wakeman came through a 598 player-field in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up to bank $21,081. The former WCOOP title winner defeated 'offQbert45' heads-up, who departed with $15,298 as runner-up after 'Kakiers04' took the bronze for $11,101. It was a good day at the office for many of partypoker's Team Pro with Roberto Romanello, Patrick Leonard, and Jeff Gross all achieving podium places. Romanello just missed out on the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller Terminator title after 'Greenstone25' won the heads-up battle. Fellow Team Pro Gross departed in sixth place, with 'NewYorkJimmY', 'Und4d0gsonT0P' and 'Martin Fingered' the next to exit, before 'Greenstone25' picked up $11,108 + $11,403 (in bounties) for victory, with Welshman Romanello adding $11,096 + $5,683 to his online bankroll. Gross made his second final table appearence of the day in partypoker $2,100 Sunday High Roller Gladiator $100k Gtd. Renato Nomura of Team Pro exited in fifth place for $4,614 + $4,068 (in bounties) before Gross took the bronze for $9,558 + $3,871. 'BaBaDeBaBa' then took the title for $14,508 + $22,542, as 'NewYorkJimmY' collected $14,496 + $8,760. Patrick Leonard won $5,319 + $4,741 (in bounties) for third place in the partypoker $530 Sunday HR Bounty Hunter, but it was 'Dandelion32892' who took the glory. 172 entrants created a $88,150 prize pool and 'Dandelion32892' banked $7,295 + $10,504 (in bounties) as champion after a heads-up victory over 'happymermaid', who banked $7,286 + $3,072 in second place.

  8. In the sixth instalment of the 2020 World Series of Poker online Asia time zone events, Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla overcame 3,247 total entries and 426 other players on Day 2 to win Event #55 HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship. Garla secured his first career bracelet to take home $461,709.47. There were eight different countries across four continents represented at the final table of Event #55 (HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship). Brazilian Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla came into the table with a gargantuan 40,674,090 stack with American Alan 'TheCockroach' Schein second in chips with 22,737,151. It took almost two hours of poker prior to the first elimination of the final table. Ignacio 'Curandero' Moron, who was the short stack, raised to 2,178,853 with 350,000 still behind and was called by Schein in the hijack. The players then got it all in on the [poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2c"] flop, the turn brought in the [poker card="Td"] and the [poker card="4d"] completed the board. Moron turned over [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Js"] but Schein showed [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Th"] for the turned two pair ending Moron's tournament journey. It took another 16 minutes for the next final table bustout. Vadas 'Vladiator13' Tamasauskas, who finished fifth in WSOP #Event 52, moved all in preflop with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Ks"] from early position and was called by the [poker card="Th"][poker card="Td"] held by runaway chip leader Garla. It was a classic race but the at risk Tamasauskas finished in eighth for $43,180 as he failed to connect with the [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Qh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2s"] runout. Immediately following the break, in unusual fashion, the two big stacks in Garla and Schein got involved in a big pot against each other. Schein raised to 1.4 million from the cutoff and Garla defended his big blind to see the [poker card="Qs"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2h"] flop. Garla checked to the preflop aggressor who fired a continuation bet of 1.82 million, the Brazilian called. Garla then fired a 5.39 million bet on the [poker card="9c"] turn, which Schein called. Garla continued to apply pressure with a bet of 10.78 million on the [poker card="6c"] river, Schein snap-called with [poker card="Kd"][[poker card="Qh"] for top pair but was behind the turned two pair as Garla showed [poker card="9d"][poker card="7s"]. The Brazilian held a commanding chip lead with a stack of just shy of 95 million, over 70 million more than second place Schein. As the short stacks kept surviving, it took another 15 minutes for the next tournament casualty. Alexandros 'THE Sheriff' Theologis open-jammed with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8d"] and was snap called by the shorter stack Eduards 'lIlIlIlIillI' Kudrjavcevs who had a bigger pair in [poker card="Ts"][poker card="Tc"]. Theologis delivered a fatal blow to the Latvian, flopping a full house on the [poker card="8h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"] flop. A ten didn't appear on the [poker card="5s"] turn and [poker card="3h"] river and Kudrjavcevs was eliminated. Things started to pick up as the blinds grew as the next elimination came immediately. Divanshu 'd0rk21' Khurana shoved all in for 5,816,672 and his compatriot, Kunal 'Alex_52' Bhatia, called off in the big blind. Khurana: [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8d"] Bhatia: [poker card="Kh"][poker card="9h"] Bhatia, the runner up in WSOP Event #52, connected on the [poker card="Kd"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"] flop. With an over-card and a flush draw, Khurana still had a chance of survival but neither came as the [poker card="Qs"] and [poker card="3c"] river brought the game to five-handed play. Garla claimed another victim after calling the 11,360,972 three-bet jam by Wenhao 'pwhwin' Peng. Garla, with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="4d"], was dominated by Peng's [poker card="Ac"][poker card="6c"] but the chip leader made three of a kind as the board came [poker card="Kh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="5d"]. Peng finished in fifth for $119,212.54. Theologis then opened the action and raised to 2 million with Garla and Schein calling from the button and big blind respectively. The flop came [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Qc"][poker card="6h"] and created a whirlwind of action, it checked through to Garla for took a stab at the pot with a bet of 2.277 million. Schein then min-raised and Theologis then clicked it back to 7.831 million, Garla folded and Schein then moved all in and was quickly called by Theologis. Schein, with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="6d"], surely thought he was ahead with top and bottom pair but found himself needing help as Theologis flopped middle set with [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Qs"]. The American ended the day in fourth as he failed to improve on the [poker card="4c"] turn and [poker card="9s"] river. With no player looking to give up any ground, Bhatia was sent to rail in third. In a button versus blind battle, Bhatia opened to 2.4 million and Garla three-bet to 6.6 million and snap-called Bhatia's 21,780,380 four-bet jam. Bhutia needed a miracle as his [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Kh"] was in bad shape against Garla's [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ad"]. Bhatia got now help on the [poker card="8s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="7h"] run out. Going into heads up play the blinds were 600,000/1,200,000 and the stacks were: Garla: 102,973,521 (85.8BBs) Theologis: 58,864,219 (49BBs) But it only took Garla a few more minutes to wrap up the victory after maintaining the chip lead for the duration of the final table. Theologis was then in the danger zone after falling to 11 blinds. Garla had chipped away at the Englishman's stack but took a 10 to 1 chip lead after winning a pot of 37.8 million. Theologis called a river bet of 11.76 million into a pot of 14.28 million with [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Jd"] for second pair on the [poker card="Ts"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="Qh"][poker card="Ks"] board but Garla rivered top pair with his [poker card="Kh"][poker card="5d"]. The killer blow was delivered two minutes later as both players were all in preflop. Theologis: [poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"] Garla: [poker card="Qd"][poker card="7d"] Garla sealed the win, his first career bracelet and a 3,551,611.32 HKD ($461,709.47) payday as he flopped top pair and held as the board came [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Ts"][poker card="4h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="Th"]. Final Table Payouts Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla - $461,709.47 Alexandros 'THE Sheriff' Theologis - $329,122.04 Kunal 'Alex_52' Bhatia - $234,609.77 Alan 'TheCockroach' Schein - $167,237.48 Wenhao 'pwhwin' Peng - $119,212.54 Divanshu 'd0rk21' Khurana - $84,978.95 Eduards 'lIlIlIlIillI' Kudrjavcevs- $60,575.74 Vladas 'Vladiator13' Tamasauskas - $43,180.48 Ignacio 'Curandero' Moron - $30,780.46 Faces in the Crowd A plethora of notable names made it to Day 2 and finished in the money. Bracelet winner Chris Moorman (159th - $3,712) added another WSOP cash to what has been an impressive series from the Englishman. Another player representing the United Kingdom was recent WSOP bracelet winner Roberto Romanello (120th - $4,234). Romanello became the first Welsh-born player to win a bracelet and latest player to join the prestigious 'Triple Crown' winners list with titles in the WPT, EPT and now WSOP. Alex Foxen (78th), Daniel Negreanu (77th) and Brandon Adams (75th) all cashed for $5,665. Kristen Bicknell (53rd - $5,665 ), Parker Talbot (34th - $7,948) and Steve O'Dwyer (25th - $11,149) all amassed big chip stacks at one stage in Day 2 but fell before the final table. The unfortunate final table boy was last years WSOP Main Event runner-up Dario Sammartino who finished in 10th place for $21,941.
