Shaun Deeb and Brandon Adams both bagged up chip leads in "post-lim" events in the shadows of the Main Event at the 2019 World Series of Poker on Tuesday. Those two were the headliners in two of the five events outside of the Main Event on the calendar but Dan Zack also put on a show in his pursuit of WSOP Player of the Year honors. Brandon Adams Leads $50,000 Final Fifty Final Table Brandon Adams has already won one WSOP bracelet this summer and on Tuesday he took a gigantic step towards winning a second one. Adams finished Day 2 of the $50,000 Final Fifty event with the chip lead and just six players standing between himself and that second victory. Adams bagged up 11,970,000 and sits well ahead of the rest of the field. 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event champion Adrian Mateos has the second biggest stack with 7,375,000. Michael Addamo sits third with 5,765,000. Daniel Tang, Sam Soverel, Ali Imsirovic, and Keith Tilston round out the final table. There were 14 players who registered on Day 2, including Cary Katz. This presented the PokerGO owner with a challenge. He started the day with a healthy chip stack in the Main Event and was forced to actually multi-table between the two events. Katz managed to survive past the bubble of the Final Fifty before busting in 12th for $112,357.

World Series of Poker history was made this week when Orhan Ates topped the 3,170-entry field of WSOP Event #60 ($525 Bounty No Limit Hold’em 6-Handed) to take home his first gold bracelet, one that doubles as the first-ever gold bracelet won by a player from Turkey. Ates also walked away with a first-place prize of $114,584 and another $65,593 in bounties for a grand total of $180,177. It marks the second-highest score of his career right behind a $185,000 haul he won in Kyrenia back in 2018. Prior to being able to play in WSOP events on GGPoker, Ates only had two recorded WSOP-related results. Both came in November of 2019 when he attended a World Series of Poker International Circuit event in Holland. However, despite not having much experience at the WSOP, Ates has more than $900,000 in live earnings and experience dating back to 2012 which he used to etch his name in the WSOP history books. Although the tournament was six-handed, the final table got underway with nine players left and Ates holding the chip lead. Latvia’s Arsens Sakanjans was the first of the nine to depart when he shipped his 14 big blind stack from the small blind holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"] and was called by Caique Sanches’ in the big blind with his [poker card="as"][poker card="6d"]. Although Sakanjans held the dominating hand, the board ran out [poker card="5c"][poker card="6h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="qh"][poker card="5s"] to give Sanches a pair for the win. Sakanjans was out in ninth for $8,185 and another $6,670 in bounties. Minutes later Ates raised from under the gun and Jeff Hakim three-bet shipped his final twenty big blinds with [poker card="ts"][poker card="th"]. Ates quickly called holding [poker card="ks"][poker card="kd"] and the [poker card="5s"][poker card="ad"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5c"][poker card="2d"] board ran clean for the pocket kings sending Hakim home in eighth place for $11,383 and another $6,332 in bounties. Shortly after the first break, the bustouts resumed when Augusto Hagen open-shipped his seven big blind stack holding [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"]. Brazil’s Sanches then re-shipped, having Hagen covered, with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8c"]. The table watched as the board rolled out [poker card="2s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="7d"][poker card="qd"] and Sanches’s pair won the flip as he eliminated his second player of the final table. Hagen settled for seventh place and a $15,832 payday plus another $11,854 in bounties. Austria’s Tobias Schwecht found major momentum when play got to six-handed. He put in a late position raise with [poker card="qh"][poker card="qd"] online to be shoved on by India’s Gaurav Sood holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"]. Schwecht made the snap call and the flop came [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"][poker card="9d"] keeping Schwecht in the lead and giving both gunshot straight draws. The [poker card="jd"] hit the turn, giving Schwecht the straight. The [poker card="5c"] river was no help to Sood who exited in sixth place for $22,019 and $6,521 in bounties. Having lost his chip lead to Schwecht, Ates was looking to get back to the top of the chip counts. He shipped his final 20 big blinds with [poker card="th"][poker card="td"] but was quickly called by Sanches who woke up with [poker card="as"][poker card="ah"]. Sanches was well in the lead, but with the shorter stack of the two, he was also at risk. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="ad"][poker card="9c"] flop improved Sanches to top set while leaving Ates desperate for help. Some arrived on the [poker card="7s"] turn, giving Ates four outs to the gutshot straight. That four-outer came in when the [poker card="8s"] hit the river giving Ates an unlikely straight and sending Sanches to the rail in fifth for $30,624 and $20,676 in bounties. Schwecht then went to work as a bounty collector. From UTG, Schwecht made it 1,600,000 to go and Alexandre Reard called from the big blind. Reard then checked after the [poker card="6s"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2h"] flop. Schwecht bet enough to put Reard all-in and Reard made the call. Reard showed [poker card="as"][poker card="2s"] for bottom pair which put him ahead of Schwecht's [poker card="js"][poker card="7d"]. The [poker card="9s"] turn gave Schwecht outs to a straight and the [poker card="8c"] river filled that draw to end Reard's run in fourth for $42,591 and another $13,884 in bounties. Schwecht needed just two minutes to find another victim. Ates folded his button and Schwecht moved all-in from the small blind with [poker card="6c"][poker card="4s"] and Tomas Jozonis called from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="7h"][poker card="6d"][poker card="6h"] flop gave Schwecht trip sixes and left Jozonis drawing razor thin. The [poker card="3h"] turn had Jozonis drawing dead and he was eliminated in third after the [poker card="ks"] completed the board. Jozonis collected $59,236 for his bronze finish and another $2,174 in bounties. Schwecht began heads up play with a 3-1 lead over Ates but two back-to-back hands completely flipped the script. On the first, Ates held [poker card="tc"][poker card="7c"] and was all in after the turn against Schwecht's [poker card="kd"][poker card="8d"] with the board showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="ts"][poker card="6d"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="as"] river gave Ates a full house to double to just over 25 million. On the next hand, the players were all in preflop with Ates flipping with [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] against the [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"] of Schwecht. The pocket sevens held giving Ates a chip lead he wouldn't surrender again. On the final hand, Schwecht put in a raise from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="ac"] and Ates defended holding [poker card="qd"][poker card="tc"]. Ates checked the [poker card="qs"][poker card="6d"][poker card="3h"] flop and Schwecht put out a bet with his overpair. Ates check-raised his top pair enough to put Schwecht at risk. Schwecht made the call and the [poker card="3d"] arrived on the turn. Schwecht was in good shape to double up but Ates found the [poker card="qc"] on the river to improve to a full house and send Schwecht out at the runner-up, which was good for $82,386 and another $15,629. Ates brings home $114,584 for first place, plus another $65,593 in bounties for a total score of $180,177. Final Table Payouts Orhan Ates - $114,584 + $65,593 Tobias Schwecht - $82,386 + $15,629 Tomas Jozonis - $59,236 + $2,174 Alexandre Reard - $42,591 + $13,884 Caique Sanches - $30,624 + $20,676 Gaurav Sood - $22,019 + $6,521 Augusto Hagen - $15,832 + $11,854 Jeff Hakim - $11,383 + $6,332 Arsens Sakanjans - $8,185 + $6,670
