Dan Smith Defeats Daniel Negreanu in $100,000 Super High Roller at Five Diamond

In one of the final preliminary events (if you can call a tournament with a six-figure buy in a “preliminary”) before the start of the World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic Main Event next week, Dan Smith vanquished fellow poker pro Daniel Negreanu to win the $ 100,000 Super High Roller on Friday night. While there has been plenty of action around the Bellagio leading up to the WPT Main Event, the $ 100,000 Super High Roller pulled plenty of eyes to its action. 39 entries would pony up the $ 100,000 entry fee to build a $ 3.9 million prize pool. Of that bounty, only six people would be walking away with any money, making the competition fierce. By the time Thursday night arrived, the money bubble was still intact as seven players battled it out for the right to get a return on their investment. Stephen

Nick Petrangelo Outlasts Mike Watson, Fedor Holz to Win Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge

In a rather rapid final table of five hours, Nick Petrangelo got his 2017 tournament poker season off to a good start by outlasting Mike Watson and Fedor Holz to win the Aussie Millions $ 100,000 Challenge on Saturday at the Crown Casino in Melbourne. Steffen Sontheimer was the leader of the event with 451,000 in chips as it entered its final day, but that lead was a tenuous one. Hot on his heels were Holz (394,500) and Petrangelo (381,000), with the remainder of the table filled out by Sam Trickett (265,000), Watson (146,000), 2016 Player of the Year David Peters (96,000) and David Steicke (78,500) rounding out the field. With only three players getting paid, the desire to remain at the final table for even the shortest of the stacks was high. Steicke was looking for that proverbial “double up and go home” early on and he would get

2017 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge: Germans Steffen Sontheimer, Fedor Holz Lead Final Table

After a bit of a fitful start, the $ 100,000 Challenge got off the ground earlier this week at the 2017 Aussie Millions. On Saturday at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, the final seven men will return to action to determine a champion in the tournament. This event was supposed to have coincided with the start of the $ 10,000 Main Event but, due to some apprehension of the players (some were in Day 1A of the Main Event and some weren’t sure they wanted to pony up that much if there weren’t going to be enough players to make it worth their while), the start date was moved to Monday to accommodate them. Additionally, Crown officials chopped the juice in half for the event, giving a bit of discount to those wanting to take part. Still, the players didn’t initially flood the tournament floor. When the tournament kicked off

2017 PokerStars Championship Bahamas: Main Event Begins, Koon Wins $100,000 Super High Roller

The Main Event of the inaugural PokerStars Championship stop is underway; Sunday saw the completion of Day 1A of the PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event while Day 1B is currently running at Atlantis Paradise Island. A total of 229 players showed up for the first starting flight of the formerly named PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and James Martyn emerged as the leader of the 112 surviving players, finishing the night with 197,400 chips. Martyn really got going in the final level of Sunday’s action, Level 8. With only 46,500 chips near the start of the level, he confidently raised to 1,400 chips pre-flop with pocket Aces and had to be thrilled to see Andrey Zaichenko re-raise him to 4,500. Action folded back around to Martyn, who four-bet to 13,500. Zaichenko then moved all-in and obviously Martyn snap-called, his Aces destroying Zaichenko’s K-T (oops). A Ten did flop, but Zaichenko got no

2017 PokerStars Championship Bahamas: $100,000 Super High Roller Event Kicks Off with Special Guest

The 2017 PokerStars Championship Bahamas (the artist formerly known as the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure) is underway at Atlantis Resort and Casino and the players have wasted little time in getting to business. The very first tournament of the 92-event schedule, the $ 100,000 Super High Roller, exploded out of the gates with a sizeable field of poker’s most well-known (or deepest pocketed) professionals taking their place at the tables. All-time money leader Daniel Negreanu (who is having that perch threatened by Erik Seidel), “Big One for One Drop” champion Dan Colman, Dan Shak, Stephen Chidwick, 2016 Player of the Year David Peters and a host of other notables were in the field for the tournament, but none of those players would draw the attention that one person was able to garner from the railbirds. Perhaps as a marketing ploy by Amaya Gaming to draw attention to the new PokerStars Championship
