  1. It has been a busy week of poker news, but one item we didn't want to overlook was Tom Marchese (pictured) winning back-to-back Aria High Roller Events. On January 30, he took down the first of two High Rollers, which have $25,000 buy-ins. He defeated former WSOP November Niner Ben BenbaLamb in that one to bank $383,000 after a heads-up chop; the final table also included the likes of Antonio Esfandiariand Jason treysfull21 Mercier. His first Aria High Roller win was in a tournament that had 41 entrants and a prize pool that passed $1 million. The second Aria High Roller, which took place one night later, featured Marchese chopping with Byron Kaverman, who made the final table the previous day as well, and Tony Gregg. This time, Marchese reeled in $298,000, the largest payday awarded. The tournament on January 31 had a field of 42. As PokerNews detailed, "Marchese moved to just under $9,800,000 in career live tournament earnings, and he's gotten himself off to a blistering start to 2015 after finishing up his best year ever from live events in 2014. Last year, Marchese won $4,472,478 and could challenge that if his early pace keeps going." Marchese is #21 on the all-time money list for the United States, according to the Hendon Mob, and is #2 from his home state of New Jersey. He is quickly closing in on $10 million in career live poker scores, as PokerNews pointed out, and was #6 on the money list for 2014. He won last year's WPT Alpha8 during the Five Diamond event in Las Vegas for $1.5 million and finished second in a Super High Roller in mid-2014 for $1.4 million. He has four career seven-figure live scores. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook. You can also subscribe to our RSS feed.
  2. [caption width="640"] Steffen Sontheimer beat Fedor Holz to win Poker Masters Event #2 and take the lead for the Purple Jacket (PokerCentral photo)[/caption] On Thursday night, in the opening event of the Poker Masters, Steffen Sontheimer had to settle for a fourth place finish as Nick Schulman went on to victory. Friday night Sontheimer made up for it by posting a comeback for the ages against his good friend Fedor Holz to win Event #2 for $900,000. Sontheimer started the seven-handed final table with a middle-of-the-pack stack, but it didn't take him long to get to work changing that. Just 20 minutes into Friday night's action, Bryn Kenney moved all in for 320,000 from the button and Sontheimer called from the big blind. Kenney showed [poker card="6d"][poker card="6h"] while Sontheimer had [poker card="as"][poker card="7c"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"] flop put Sontheimer ahead for good as neither the [poker card="jh"] turn or [poker card="5s"] river were any help for Kenney. Sontheimer only had to wait 15 minutes before he found another victim. Sontheimer raised to 70,000 from UTG and action folded around to Adrian Mateos in the small blind. The Spaniard, who finished seventh in Event #1, moved all in for 740,000. Sontheimer called and tabled [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Qd"] and found he was racing against Mateos' [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"]. The board ran out [poker card="ad"][poker card="8h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="jh"][poker card="9h"] to give Sontheimer the win and eliminate Mateos in sixth. An hour later, Holz took over the role of executioner. Christian Christner raised to 85,000 from UTG before Holz made it 235,000 from the cutoff. Christner responded by moving all in and Holz called. Christner showed [poker card="jh"][poker card="js"] and it was another race as Holz tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="tc"][poker card="9s"] flop put Holz ahead and when the [poker card="2d"] turn and [poker card="5d"] river were no help for Christner, he was out in fifth. The table dynamic shifted dramatically with the next elimination. Phil Hellmuth had been verbally sparring with both Holz and Sontheimer during most of the early play. Tom Marchese put an end to that though. After having nursed a short stack for a good portion of the night, Hellmuth moved all in for his last 495,000 from UTG. Marchese re-raised all in from the small blind, forcing Sontheimer to fold. It was yet another race with Hellmuth showing [poker card="as"][poker card="th"] and Marchese ahead with [poker card="6c"][poker card="6s"]. Hellmuth could only watch in horror as the [poker card="jd"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2c"] flop gave Marchese a set. When the runner-runner he needed didn't come, Hellmuth was out in fourth. Marchese's tournament didn't last much longer, but it took a bad beat for it to end. Holz raised to 165,000 from the small blind before Marchese move all in for 1,500,000. Holz used one of his time extensions before eventually calling and showing [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"]. Marchese was ahead with [poker card="as"][poker card="js"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7c"] flop changed all of that though and after the [poker card="6s"] turn and [poker card="3d"] river, Marchese was out in third. Heads-up play began with Holz holding a nearly 7-1 lead over Sontheimer. Over the next hour or so though, Sontheimer flipped the script and eventually had a 2-1 over his good friend Holz before finally eliminating him. Holz raised to 155,000, Sontheimer re-raised all in and Holz called. Sontheimer had his friend in a world of hurt with [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] to Holz's [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"]. The final board ran out [poker card="8s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3c"] to give Sontheimer the win. Sontheimer also leads the Purple Jacket standings with $1,104,000 in earnings thanks to his fourth place finish in Event #1 and win in Event #2. Final Table Payouts Steffen Sontheimer - $900,000 Fedor Holz - $550,000 Tom Marchese - $300,000 Phil Hellmuth - $200,000 Christian Christner - $175,000 Adrian Mateos - $150,000 Bryn Kenney - $125,000
  3. It's getting to the point where Stephen Chidwick winning a U.S. Poker Open event isn't news. Tuesday night in Las Vegas the British poker pro picked up his fourth career USPO title, beating Cary Katz heads up to win Event #6, the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. It's his second USPO win in 2019 giving him two wins in each year the tournament series has existed. Chidwick, who won the USPO title last season, now leads the overall standings this year with just four events remaining. Chidwick started Tuesday's final table with the chip lead and, along with Anthony Zinno, was one of just two players with a seven-figure stack. While Chidwick continued to build early, Zinno was less fortunate. After a little more than an hour of play, Zinno was down to just 365,000 and found himself tangling with Katz. Chidwick raised to 90,000 and Katz called before Zinno moved all in from the button. Chidwick folded and Katz called, tabling [poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"][poker card="th"][poker card="5c"]. Zinno was ahead with [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"][poker card="jh"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"] flop was a relatively safe one for Zinno. The [poker card="2c"] turn gave Katz a flush draw which came in on the [poker card="7c"] river to eliminate Zinno in sixth place. Chidwick then put his big stack to work 20 minutes to send Sean Rafael to the rail. Chidwick opened to 90,000 before Rafael made it 290,000. Chidwick called and the two players saw a [poker card="9d"][poker card="6c"][poker card="6d"] flop. Rafael bet 155,000 all in and Chidwick called. Rafael tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"][poker card="ts"] but Chidwick showed [poker card="tc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"] for trips. Neither the [poker card="3h"] turn or [poker card="qh"] river were any help and Rafael was out in fifth. Katz then picked up another elimination just 30 minutes later. Katz limped his button, Ben Lamb completed from the small blind and Tom Marchese checked his option. The [poker card="as"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5c"] flop got Lamb bet pot. Marchese folded but Katz repotted and Lamb called all in. Katz turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="8d"] while Lamb was drawing with [poker card="kh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="5h"] turn was no help for Lamb and after the [poker card="8h"] river failed to complete his draw, Lamb was eliminated in fourth place. Marchese actually started the day as the shortest stack but managed to outlast three other players before meeting his fate. Katz completed from the button and Marchese raised to 240,000 from the small blind. Chidwick folded and Katz called. After the [poker card="jc"][poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"] flop, Marchese bet 600,000 and Katz responded by repotting and Marchese called his last 240,000. Marchese tabled [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"][poker card="js"][poker card="5s"] while Katz was drawing wiht [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"]. The [sc] ended all the drama, completing Katz's flush draw. The meaningless river was the [poker card="6c"] and Marchese was out in third. Thanks to those last two eliminations, Katz began heads up play with 65% of the chips in play. Chidwick and Katz played heads-up for nearly two hours with the lead being traded back and forth before Chidwick finally put a cap on another USPO win. Down to just 3.5 big blinds, Katz moved all in for 410,000 after Chidwick had opened with a pot-size bet of 360,000. Chidwick called and turned up [poker card="as"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4h"] which put him behind Katz' [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"][poker card="js"][poker card="3d"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="6c"] gave Chidwick a wheel and eliminate Katz. Final Table Payouts Stephen Chidwick - $351,000 Cary Katz - $234,000 Tom Marchese - $156,000 Ben Lamb - $97,500 Sean Rafael - $78,000 Anthony Zinno - $58,500 Chidwick now has four USPO wins and nine final tables over 14 events stretching the last two years. He now sits atop the USPO leaderboard and is 100 points clear of his nearest competitor, Sean Winter. USPO Top 10 After Event #6 PLAYER CASHES PRIZE MONEY POINTS 1. Stephen Chidwick 4 $705,950 540 2.

  4. After four days of play, Tom Marchese defeated the 536-entry field of the inaugural partypoker MILLIONS Vegas at the ARIA Resort & Casino to take home the $1,000,000 first place prize. Packed with superstar talent, the $10,000 buy-in event exceeded the $5 million guarantee, generating a prize pool of $5.36 million in partypoker’s first foray into Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker. The trip to Sin City paid off for partypoker in what was a dream final table lineup packed with some of the biggest names in the game of poker vying for the MILLIONS title and seven-figure payday. Perhaps the biggest of those names at the final table was that of Chris Moneymaker. The Poker Hall of Fame nominee entered the final table as one of the chip leaders but after losing a clash with Sergio Aido, found himself with a vulnerable stack. After Marchese opened from early position, Moneymaker three-bet from the small blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. Marchese made the call holding [poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"]. The flop came [poker card="2c"][poker card="9d"][poker card="5h"]. Moneymaker bet the flop and Marchese called. The turn provided Marchese the [poker card="8s"]. Moneymaker checked and Marchese took the lead putting out a healthy bet, which Moneymaker called. The river was the [poker card="4h"] and after Moneymaker checked for a second time, Marchese moved all-in. Moneymaker quickly called with his overpair but after being shown Marchese’s set, the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champion headed for the cage to collect his $80,000 prize for finishing in ninth. Germany’s Tobias Duthweiler was the next to exit the final table after shipping his short stack in holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="js"]. 888poker sponsored pro Ana Marquez reshoved with the [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"]. The race was on and the board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="ac"][poker card="5c"][poker card="th"][poker card="ad"] giving Marquez the hand and Duthweiler $100,000 for finishing in eighth place. Rainer Kempe shipped his stack in holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="ts"] in late position, however Marchese looked down at [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"] in the big blind and made the call to put Kempe at risk. Kempe was going to need some help, but the board of [poker card="7h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="7s"] provided little drama. Kempe, the 2016 Super High Roller Bowl champion, finished his tournament in seventh place adding $130,000 to his over $20 million in career live earnings. The next elimination happened when Jeremy Ausmus opened the hand with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] only to be three-bet all in by UK online phenom Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford who picked up [poker card="th"][poker card="tc"]. Ausmus made the call and Beresford saw the bad news. The flop fell [poker card="3d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6h"] providing little help to Beresford who was going to need to spike a ten or running straight cards. The turn was the [poker card="qs"], leaving Beresford drawing to two outs. The river was the [poker card="7h"] and Beresford exited in sixth place, collecting a career-high live cash of $170,000. Already with a massive chip lead, Marchese added to his stack in a hand with Sergio Aido. Marches raised under the gun with [poker card="as"][poker card="qs"] and Aido put in his remaining chips holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="3d"]. After a short deliberation, Marchese called and the flop came [poker card="6c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="jc"] offering Aido a few extra chop outs. However the turn was the [poker card="9s"] and the river was the [poker card="th"] sending Aido to the rail in fifth place for $230,000. Marchese wasn’t done knocking players out and his next opponent was poker legend Freddy Deeb. Marchese put in a raise holding [poker card="9s"][poker card="9d"] and Deeb made his all in move holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"]. Marchese made the call and the flop came [poker card="7c"][poker card="8h"][poker card="9c"] giving Marchese top set. Deeb needed running cards to get out from under but the turn was the [poker card="2d"] and the river the [poker card="8s"]. Deeb finished in fourth place for $319,200, his largest cash since 2015. After Ausmus picked up chips off Marchese, the two of them had a large chip advance over Ana Marquez. After battling for some time, Marquez’ tournament came to an end in a blind on blind confrontation with Ausmus. From the small blind Marquez put her short stack in holding [poker card="ks"][poker card="2h"] and Ausmus made the quick call with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="9h"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="qd"][poker card="8h"] flop gave Ausmus a pair, taking away some outs for Marquez. The turn came [poker card="3s"] and the [poker card="5d"] river saw the 888poker ambassador exit in third place for $445,000. Heads up play began with Marchese holding a sizable chip lead that was quickly equalized by Ausmus. Although he got close to Marchese at one point, Marchese never relinquished the chip lead and Ausmus soon saw the gap widen as Marchese eventually opened up a 4:1 chip advantage. The pair of Aria regulars battled for quite some time until the final hand of the tournament saw Marchese open with [poker card="as"][poker card="jh"] only to be shipped on for 14bbs by Ausmus. Marchese eventually made the call and Ausmus turned over the [poker card="kh"][poker card="ts"]. The board ran out clean for Marchese with a [poker card="5c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="7d"] flop and a turn [poker card="ah"] which left Ausmus drawing dead to the river [poker card="4h"]. Ausmus finished as the runner-up, settling for $650,000. Tom Marchese picked up an even $1,000,000 for first place, the seventh seven-figure score of his career. partypoker MILLIONS Final Table Payouts 1. Tom Marchese - $1,000,000 2.
