  1. "I'm gonna make this happen. Somehow, I'm gonna win one of these damn passes." After calling his shot earlier this year, Nathan Manuel has done it. He's won a PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship Platinum Pass. Winning the Pass involved topping a field of 825 entries in the $86 buy-in Moneymaker PSPC Tour stop at Run It Up Reno. After 128 players hit the money, the field worked its way down to the final table. Manuel entered the final table with the chip lead and had to battle with a tough group of competitors, including three-time Run It Up Reno trophy winner Andrew Cha and Florida grinder Hayden Fortini, who finished in sixth and eighth places, respectively. In the end, Manuel was left to battle with Run It Up Reno regular Marty Gorenc. Manuel entered the heads-up match at a 3-1 disadvantage but ultimately prevailed. "I'm sure it has not sunk in," Manuel said 24 hours after the win. "I have not done the paperwork yet, but it'll probably feel more real once I do all of that and know what the situation looks like." Manuel has already been all over in his quest for a Platinum Pass, and knowing his opportunities were running out more and more by the day, he was prepared to jump overseas in his chase. "The thing that makes it the most real is that I was literally planning a trip to London to play two events there — a MegaStack and a £2,000 event that both had Platinum Passes, and I was trying to figure out any alternate ways that I might find to win a Pass. The fact that I'm not having to do that and go to these extra lengths to give myself more opportunities makes it feel more practically real, but I don't think the reality of accomplishing a goal has settled in yet." No matter how he won a Pass, Manuel would have felt a great success, but doing so in a Moneymaker PSPC Tour stop was something that resonated with Manuel as he drew some similarities between himself and Chris Moneymaker. "For me, poker is something that I love and something that I am passionate about," Manuel said. "I'm an everyday guy with a job, who, very much like Chris Moneymaker, lives a professional career, but this game opens up opportunities that are unique and that you can’t even anticipate. "I find myself in a place today where I have some opportunities and it's interesting to find myself in the position to play a $25K tournament that I clearly would never play based on my bankroll and based on the history I have playing poker," Manuel said. "My average tournament buy-in is sub-$1,000, so to have an opportunity to play something with the best players in the world in a field that’s going to be super unique in that it has all these people being added to it that likely are not professional players, it puts a really interesting spin on it. I do feel some relief that I’ve won a Pass because I came into this knowing that I was not a favorite to win a Pass." Now that he’s clinched a Pass and will be off to the Bahamas in January, Manuel is quick to change gears. Even though recognizes the odds weren’t in his favor to win a Platinum Pass, Manuel realizes that winning a Pass, albeit a very big accomplishment in itself, is only part of the larger goal. "All that I'm thinking about at this point is that the goal has now changed," Manuel said. "I'm not trying to win this Pass, I'm not trying to learn Japanese to win a Pass, which is something I wanted to do and I'm really excited I did, but now it's getting better at poker. Think about poker, think about poker at the highest level, think about poker at the level of $25K buy-in tournaments and the people who you’re going to be interacting with and playing with in that field, even though I know a huge percentage, probably half of the field, will be non-professionals. I hope and anticipate and expect of myself a lot. Part of that is expecting that I'll play well. Even if I don't make a deep run, that I'll play well for myself and be happy with the way that I play in that tournament for myself."

  2. 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.

  3. When PokerStars first announced the creation of the PokerStars Players Championship and began giving away the coveted Platinum Passes, it was unclear how the Americans would be included. With PokerStars only real U.S. presence in New Jersey, it looked like there may be limited opportunities for U.S. based players to win their way into what will very likely be the largest $25K buy-in tournament of all time. However, after plenty of creative ways to include the U.S. player base, including the popular Moneymaker PSPC tour, PokerStars has now accumulated quite a number of Americans with Platinum Passes in hand. The PCA’s Team USA consists of recreational players, grinders, top-tier pros and even a few celebrities. Some of poker’s more notable names found their way to receiving a platinum pass. Super high roller David Peters was one of the first to win his way in when he picked up his pass through a random draw at the 2018 PCA. Other well-known poker names from the U.S. include vlogger Andrew Neeme, the First Lady of Poker Linda Johnson, author turned poker pro Maria Konnikova and poker's minister of information Kevin Mathers. Longtime pro Kenny Tran won one through the Moneymaker PSPC Tour in Los Angeles. Luke Vrabel picked one up at Foxwoods and Joey Ingram’s pass was part of a feel-good PokerStars promotion. So, while those players will garner plenty of attention there are plenty of other players on Team USA that have the potential to make some noise at the PSPC. New Jersey’s Anthony ’tonydatiger’ Maio has spent some time in the spotlight, having made the final table of a World Poker Tour Borgata event on more than one occasion. In the midst of a red-hot 2018, Maio closed out the year by picking up his Platinum Pass during NJCOOP. Maio’s online prowess was never in doubt. With $3.4 million in online earnings, he’s one of NJ’s most prolific grinders. A strong showing in the PSPC could really take his career to the next level. A deep run could push him up over the $1 million in live career earnings mark. Thai 'thaiha91' Ha may have lucked out to win his Platinum Pass, but he certainly hasn’t luckboxed his way to over $900,000 in live earnings. At the PCA in 2018, one of the first passes was determined by an all-in flip at a random table. Everyone at the table was seated, except for Ha. Running just a bit late, Ha got to the table just in time to see his seat win the pass on the river. Since picking up his pass, Ha has spent the better part of 2018 playing a ton of poker. He finished in second place in the Big Stax 1500 for over $78,000. He also had a final table finish this summer at the Planet Hollywood 2018 Goliath $2,200 Main Event for over $75,000. Perhaps the player on Team USA who fought the hardest for their pass was Brookyln’s Nathan Manuel. Dedicated to winning his way into the PSPC, Manuel took shots whenever he could. He flew to London to compete, followed the Moneymaker PSPC tour in the U.S. and even tried to learn a new language in order to win a pass. In the end, he defeated a field of 825 players in October’s Run It Up Reno event to book his trip to the Bahamas. Manuel has a live earnings total of roughly $170,000 and he is no stranger to traveling to play poker. In addition to his globetrotting for the Platinum Pass, Manuel has recorded cashes in the UK, Bahamas, Canada, and Australia - where he picked up a career-high cash of over $33,000 at the Aussie Millions. One member of Team USA that everyone will be keeping close tabs on is Jeremy Hilsercop. Hlisercop’s heartwarming story of a gift to the WSOP which turned into a trip to the Bahamas was the talk of poker community during the holiday season. What was once just a dream is turning into a reality for the man who’s largest tournament buy-in to date is $170. He and his wife Randi will be hoping to turn this Christmas gift into a life-changing sum of money. In addition to the 28 players that picked up a pass through a victory or promotion. PokerStars has handed out a number of passes to U.S. based celebrities. UFC announcer Bruce Buffer, NBA great Paul Pierce, comedians Norm MacDonald and Clayton Fletcher, reality star Tyson Apostle and legendary skater Tony Hawk will all be in attendance. Keep tabs on the entire slate of U.S. based players when PSPC play gets underway on January 6.

  4. Andras 'PokerBluff1' Nemeth was among the biggest Sunday winners after he took down the GGPoker GGS #151: $25,000 $750k Gtd Super High Roller for an eye-watering $475,311. The world-ranked #2 secured his second largest online cash after defeating 'AlfredDelia' heads-up, who took away $290,483 as runner-up, with 'HectorHermano', 'Chun Lei Zhou' and 'LuckyChewyFan' also securing six-figure results having reached the final table. Alex 'FkTheseGuysBro' Foxen, Mike McDonald, and Michael Soyza all narrowly missed out on a heads-up battle in the GGPoker GGS #155: $200k Gtd Super High Roller $2,500, with 'OtterPop' going the distance to win $60,921. Foxen (5th), McDonald (4th) and Soyza (3rd) hit the rail before 'nbvcxz' was the final elimination and banked $45,872 in second place. 'NOMANES' was once again a familiar name at the top of the GGPoker after they took down the GGS #157: $500k Gtd Super High Roller $10,000 for $178,729. 'FNC_Broxah' picked up the silver medal for $93,400, while 'tooothpick' had to settle for a very nice $119,456 as runner-up. 'vamossuerte' and 'carsonwentz' both picked up six-figure scores after they chopped the GGPoker GGS #156: $400k Gtd Super High Roller $5,000. After 127 entrants created a $603,250 prize pool, 'goodeggplant' departed in third place for $76,510. The final two then agreed to the deal before battling it out for the gold medal. 'vamossuerte' ultimately came through and banked $117,448, with 'carsonwentz' taking $115,356. 'Tomatee' had a Sunday to remember after winning two PokerStars gold medals. 'Tomatee' came through a 122 player-field in the $2,100 High Roller Club Sunday HR to bank $49,338, following a heads-up deal with 'Secret_M0d3', who received $45,304. The second win of the day for 'Tomatee' came in the PokerStars $1,050 High Roller Club Sunday Supersonic 6-Max Hyper-Turbo, this time navigating their way through a 240 player-field to claim the $47,110 first-place prize. 'Negriin' took the silver medal alongside $35,024, with 'B4NKR0LL3R' picking up the bronze for $26,039. 'bayaraa1002' turned $530 into $114,000 after they saw off 1,633 other entrants in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller PKO. 'slayerv1fan' hit the rail in third place for $32,863 + $13,007 in bounties, before 'drew.derzh' lost out heads-up and departed with $45,285 + $16,209, which left 'bayaraa1002' take the title alongside $62,404 + $52,033.
