  1. [caption width="640"] Harrison Gimbel now has a WPT title to go with his PCA Main Event victory (Joe Giron photo)[/caption] Harrison Gimbel burst onto the live poker scene in 2010 when the then 19-year-old took down the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure to become the youngest winner in the history of that event. On Wednesday night, Gimbel added another title to his resume after defeating Mohsin Charania heads-up to win the World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder event and pocket $275,112. Along with the cash, Gimbel earns entry to the WPT Tournament of Champions next month in his home state of Florida. Charania was hoping to become the fourth player to capture three WPT titles joining Gus Hansen, Carlos Mortensen and Anthony Zinno, but Gimbel wouldn’t be denied. Starting the TV final table with the lowest chip stack, Derek Wolters knew he had some work to do. Unfortunately, it just didn’t work out for the 26-year-old poker pro. Wolters raised from UTG to 90,000 and Gimbel called from the big blind. After a [poker card="9h"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5s"] flop, both players checked. The [poker card="th"] was enough for Gimbel to lead out for 85,000. Wolters responded by moving all-in for 565,000 and after 90 seconds thinking it over, Gimbel called and tabled [poker card="jd"][poker card="9c"], while Wolters showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="td"]. Wolters was ahead, but the [poker card="9d"] river gave Gimbel trip nines and Wolters was eliminated in sixth. Russell Garrett opened from the button to 80,000 and Hafiz Khan moved all-in from the small blind. Garrett called and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"] and was up against Khan’s [poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"]. The board ran out [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="9h"] to counterfeit Khan’s pair and send him home in fifth place. The third elimination of the night happened just 15 minutes later and again began with Garrett opening to 80,000. Gimbel called from the button before Markus Gonsalves made it 275,000 to go from the small blind. Garrett folded, but Gimbel took some time before announcing he was all-in. Gonsalves quickly called and tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"] and found himself ahead of Gimbel’s [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"]. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"][poker card="8c"] to put Gimbel ahead with top pair, but Gonsalves picked up a Broadway draw. The [poker card="qc"] turn put Gimbel further ahead with trips and the [poker card="jc"] river was no help for Gonsalves and he was eliminated in fourth. Three-handed play went on for 90 minutes before Garrett, who began the day with the chip lead, and Charania clashed. Gimbel raised to 120,000 from the button, Charania called from the small blind and Garrett moved all-in from the big blind for 1,770,000. Gimbel folded, but Charania eventually called and tabled [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] and found himself racing against Garrett’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="8d"][poker card="5c"] flop was no help for Garrett and the [poker card="kh"] turn and [poker card="3c"] river were both bricks, sending him out in third place and leaving Charania and Gimbel to play heads-up for the title. When heads-up play began, the two players were separated by just 55,000 in chips - less than one big blind. While it took a little over two hours and 107 hands to go from six players to two, the duel between Gimbel and Charania lasted much longer. The two players played 116 hands of heads-up play with Gimbel and Charania trading the chip lead back and forth at least four times before it finally came to an end. With blinds of 100,000/200,000 and Gimbel holding the lead, Charania limped his button and Gimbel moved all-in. Charania called and showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"], while Gimbel turned over [poker card="5h"][poker card="4h"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Gimbel extra outs for a straight. The [poker card="5d"] turn put Gimbel ahead and the [poker card="5s"] river sealed the deal to eliminate Charania in second place and give Gimbel his first WPT title. The next WPT stop is already underway as WPT Vienna began Tuesday and wraps up Sunday. From there the WPT heads to Florida for three events; the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale and the WPT Tournament of Champions. Final Table Payouts Harrison Gimbel - $275,112 Mohsin Charania - $192,132 Russell Garrett - $123,682 Markus Gonsalves - $91,616 Hafiz Khan - $68,712 Derek Wolters - $54,970
  2. The World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder stop in Lincoln, California wrapped up on Tuesday with former Sacramento resident Erkut Yilmaz pulling off the incredible feat of winning his second WPT Main Tour stop in the same season. Now a Philadelphia resident, Yilmaz took down the WPT Borgata Poker Open in September, taking home a career-high cash of $575,112 in the process. Now, after navigating through the field of 280 runners at Thunder Valley Casino Resort, and eventually defeating Jim Collopy in a grueling heads-up battle, he's become a two-time WPT champion and takes home $303,920 for the victory. Before he could celebrate his Sacramento homecoming, Yilmaz would have to face an incredibly stacked final table that included Season 13 WPT Player of the Year Anthony Zinno and WPT Champions Club member Dylan Linde. North Carolina business owner Jerry Robinson was at his first World Poker Tour final table when he looked down at [poker card="ah"][poker card="ad"] and put in a raise from the hijack. Ajay Chabra defended his big blind with the dominated [poker card="ac"][poker card="3c"]. The flop came [poker card="ks"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4c"] and Chabra checked it over to Robinson who bet. Chabra put in a healthy check-raise and Robinson moved all in with his tournament on the line. With the nut flush draw, Chabra made the call. The turn was the [poker card="6s"] giving Chabra an open-ended straight draw to go along with his flush draw. The river fell the [poker card="7h"], bringing in the runner-runner straight for Chabra and sending Robinson to the rail having his aces cracked. Robinson picked up $50,720 for a new career-high cash. Anthony Zinno started the day as the short stack and was able to find a double up which helped him ladder the payouts. However, he wasn’t long for the final table after a clash with Collopy. Zinno raised from the cutoff with [poker card="kh"][poker card="kc"] and both Collopy and Chabra made the call from the button and big blind respectively. The flop fell [poker card="5d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2d"] and when checked to him, Zinno put out a bet. Collopy made the call and Chabra folded. The turn was the [poker card="jd"] and Zinno open-shoved the rest of his stack. Collopy made the call and flipped over the [poker card="9d"][poker card="7d"] for the flush and Zinno was drawing dead to the [poker card="2h"] river. Zinno fell in fifth place and the three-time WPT champ earned $68,860 in the process. Dylan Linde was the next to move when he shipped his roughly 15 big blind stack from the small blind holding the [poker card="qc"][poker card="9c"]. He was quickly called by Collopy in the big blind holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="3h"]. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="9h"][poker card="4c"] flop was good for Linde who improved to a pair, leaving Collopy with the three aces as outs as well as running straight or flush cards. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] bringing in some backdoor possibilities for Collopy. The [poker card="as"] spiked on the river for Collopy which sent Linde out the door in fourth place for $95,530. The remaining players battled three-handed for the better part of three hours until an all in preflop clash sent the next player to the rail. Chabra limped the button holding [poker card="5h"][poker card="5c"]. From the small blind, Collopy put in a raise with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] and Yilmaz folded the big blind. Chabra then three-bet jammed his remaining stack only to get snap called by Collopy. With the cards on their backs, the players saw a flop of [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"][poker card="7c"], giving Collopy top pair and leaving Chabra looking for some serious help. The turn was the [poker card="3d"], leaving Chabra looking for a five to survive. The river was the [poker card="9s"], marking the end of the tournament for Chabra, who, settled for third place and a six-figure payday of $130,345. Collopy held a commanding lead for most of the first part of the heads up match and had multiple shots at closing it out, only to lose back-to-back crucial flips to Yilmaz. The duo trades blows for well over two hours, with both players having their opponent on the verge of elimination only for the other to spike the card they needed to stay alive. Finally, with the chip lead, Collopy raised from the button with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] and Yilmaz shipped his [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"] on the button. The [poker card="as"][poker card="qs"][poker card="th"] flop put Yilmaz in the lead but left Collopy with outs. The turn was the [poker card="9d"] adding an open ender for Collopy, but the river was the [poker card="qd"] giving the hand to Yilmaz. After the chips were placed in Yilmaz' stack, he held 95% of the chips in play. On the very next hand, the pair put the chips in the middle again with Yilmaz spiking an ace on the river to complete the feat of winning two titles in a single season. Collopy was eliminated in second place, receiving $200,780 as a consolation. The score sends his lifetime recorded earnings north of $2 million. Yilmaz earned the $303,920 first-place prize, a new Hublot watch, and an extra $15,000 in lieu of a ticket to the Baccarat Crystal WPT Tournament of Champions, as he has already won a seat to that tournament earlier in the season. With the victory, Yilmaz takes the lead in the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race. WPT Rolling Thunder Final Table Payouts 1. Erkut Yilmaz - $303,920 2. Jim Collopy - $200,780 3.

  3. The final table of the World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder stop was not hurting for storylines before play began on Tuesday afternoon. Defending champion Erkut Yilmaz had a shot at going back-to-back. Jake Schwartz had another shot at his first WPT title at his sixth final table. Robert Heidorn, who bubbled the 2019 WSOP Main Event final table, was hoping for a small piece of redemption. Tony Tran was hoping to win his second WPT title in just over 18 months. One of those came true, but it came with a twist that M. Night Shyamalan would have been proud of. [ptable zone=“888poker”][ptable zone=“Party Poker NJ”][ptable zone=“Global Poker Article Ad”] When Tran won his first WPT title at the bestbet Bounty Scramble in October 2018, he finished it off by beating Schwartz heads-up. Tuesday night he got heads-up with Schwartz again and once again he beat him. It was the first time in WPT history that the final two players in an event had already battled heads-up in another tournament. Tran started the final table with the shortest stack, but Shankar Pillai was right there with him. Neither player was able to gain much traction until the two players clashed in an all-in preflop pot. Tran opened from the hijack to 65,000 and Yilmaz called from the cutoff. Down to just 19 big blinds, Pillai moved all-in for 565,000 before Tran moved all-in for 655,000 forcing Yilmaz to fold. Pillai turned over [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"] which put him well behind Tran's [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"]. The board ran out [poker card="9d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="qs"][poker card="9s"] to send Pillai out in sixth place and nearly double Tran's stack. Tran continued to build and doubled through Yilmaz. Another 19 hands after that, Tran sent the defending champion to the rail. Action folded to Tran in the small blind and he moved all in with [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"] before Yilmaz called off his last nine big blinds with [poker card="9c"][poker card="5c"]. The board ran out [poker card="6h"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="7s"][poker card="kd"] to give Tran a pair of sevens to eliminate Yilmaz in fifth. Four-handed play continued for 51 hands without an elimination before Tran found yet another victim. Kevin Rabichow moved all-in from the button for 1,175,000 and Tran called from the big blind. Rabichow showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="4c"] before Tran turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"] flop cut Rabichow's chances down even further. The [poker card="9c"] turn gave him an extra out but the [poker card="jd"] river finished him off for good in fourth. Just a few moments later, Tran once again ended another player's run. Heirdon moved all-in for 1,625,000 and Tran called from the big blind. Heirdon showed [poker card="2d"][poker card="2h"] but was behind Tran's [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"]. Heirdon found no help through the [poker card="ad"][poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="4d"] runout and was eliminated in third. Thanks to his work eliminating the other four opponentns, Tran began heads-up play with a nearly 4-1 chip lead over Schwartz. It took 30 hands for Tran to finish Schwartz off to win his second WPT title. On the final hand, Tran raised to 250,000 before Schwartz moved all-in for 1,350,000 and Tran called. Schwartz showed [poker card="jh"][poker card="th"] but found himself dominated by Tran's [poker card="qc"][poker card="ts"]. Tran made gin on the [poker card="jd"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8c"] flop and Schwartz was unable to catch any of the three remaining queens to stay alive and was eliminated, giving Tran another WPT title and $279,270 including a seat in the WPT Tournament of Champions in late May. WPT Rolling Thunder Final Table Payouts Tony Tran - $279,270 Jake Schwartz - $177,680 Robert Heidorn - $122,105 Kevin Rabichow - $85,800 Erkut Yilmaz - $61,685 Shankar Pillai - $45,390
