Ari Engel Maintains Player of the Year Lead, Anthony Gregg & Dietrich Fast Rising

As the two major tournament circuits in the world prepare for their season finales ahead of the start of the World Series of Poker at the end of May, Aussie Millions champion Ari Engel is continuing to hold the lead over the field in the CardPlayer Magazine Player of the Year race. While he has held that lead since the beginning of the year, Engel is now facing some new challengers coming up the leaderboard to take him on. Engel hasn’t been one to sit back on his laurels since winning the Aussie Millions back in January when he had 2614 points to lead the pack. Engel has been out on the tournament circuit, winning a WSOP Circuit ring at Harrah’s Atlantic City and making a total of five final tables since the championship “Down Under.” Add in another three cashes to his total (making for a total of 12

2016 WPT L. A. Poker Classic Main Event Day 5: Anthony Spinella Leads Final Six for Million Dollar Payday

The final table is set for the World Poker Tour’s latest stop in southern California at the L. A. Poker Classic. Heading up the six-man final table will be 2015 World Series of Poker “hybrid” (online/live tournament) bracelet winner Anthony Spinella, who will come to the final table with a nice chip stack of 3.705 million. It looked as if it would be a quick day for the 14 men who returned to action on Wednesday to work their way down to the final six. Chip leader Mike Shariati, looking for his second WPT championship of Season XIV, was in the lead with a massive stack of 2.45 million chips, while such players as three-time WSOP and former WPT champion John Hennigan, Jesse Yaginuma, Ty Reiman, David ‘Doc’ Sands and Seth Davies lurked behind looking to take him down. From the moment the call of “shuffle up and deal” was

Mike Watson Outlasts Anthony Gregg to Capture PokerStars Caribbean Adventure EPT Championship

They came into the final table as the top two players, so it was only natural that they would be the ones who would decide the championship. After all was said and done, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson emerged as champion of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure European Poker Tour Main Event over Anthony Gregg, who was denied the championship in his third ever trip to the PCA EPT Main Event final table. The duo had paced the play through Day 5, ending up 1-2 with Watson’s 6.585 million chip stack taking the top of the leaderboard over Gregg’s 5.68 million at the close of business on Wednesday night. Someone else who had been fighting with Watson through the course of Wednesday’s play was Vladimir Troyanovskiy, who lurked in the middle of the pack with his 5.025 million in chips, while Toby Lewis looked to add a second EPT title to his resume

2016 PCA EPT Main Event Day 5: Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson Leads Final Six, Anthony Gregg Makes Third-Ever PCA Main Event Final Table

It was a day of history at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure European Poker Tour Main Event on Wednesday as the final table for the event was determined. When the final six men come back to the felt this afternoon, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson will be at the helm of the ship but he will face the visage of Anthony Gregg, who is making his third trip to the PCA Main Event final table in his career. Coming into the day on Wednesday, 19 players still had the chance to take home one of the poker world’s most coveted championships with Leonardo Pires atop the leaderboard. The remainder of the field was replete with challenges, however, including Fedor Holz, Toby Lewis, Taylor Paur, Ami Barer, Stephen Chidwick and Vladimir Troyanovskiy along with Watson and Gregg. Pires looked to almost be a lock for making the final six with his 4.566 million in

Anthony Zinno, Byron Kaverman Battle it Out for Player of the Year Honors

As we prepare to head into the final month of 2015, the battle for the two major Player of the Year awards have basically come down to two men. The man who has basically dominated the leaderboards since the 2015 World Series of Poker, Anthony Zinno, has now come under fire from another player who has had an outstanding year, Byron Kaverman. For the most part, it looks as though it will come down to these two men to determine the POY. (Due to the closure of their magazine and website, the Bluff Magazine Player of the Year standings have not been updated and, as such, have been dropped from our review.) On the CardPlayer Magazine Player of the Year review, Zinno has been the overwhelming leader for virtually all of the last half of 2015. He tacked on some points in winning the Borgata Poker Open’s $ 1000 Heads
