Darryll Fish Captures First Major Title, Wins WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open

Battling through one of the larger fields during the Season XVI schedule, poker professional Darryll Fish broke through with his first ever major tour victory in winning the World Poker Tour Lucky Hearts Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, last night. The hometown favorite at the final table, Fish was one of six players who had come through the 911 entry field to vie for the crown. He didn’t lead as the final table began, however. That honor went to Russia’s Aleksandr Shevelev and his 6.96 million stack, with Ness Reilly tucked into the second slot with her 6.295 million chips. Fish, for his part, hovered in the third-place slot (5.92 million chips) while the rest of the field – Brett Bader (3.16 million), Alan Krockey (2.81 million) and former WPT champion Andy Frankenberger (2.17 million) – needed quite a bit of help

2017 World Series of Poker: Elior Sion Defeats Tough Final Table, Captures $50,000 Poker Players’ Championship

Despite arguably not being one of the “bigger” names on the final table, the United Kingdom’s Elior Sion defeated a tough final table to capture one of the biggest prizes in tournament poker, the $ 50,000 Poker Players’ Championship at the 2017 World Series of Poker. At the start of the final day, the six-man pack was led by none other than Daniel Negreanu. Negreanu, who has been having one of the best WSOP runs of his career that hasn’t resulted in a bracelet, was the leader of that pack at the start of action on Thursday with his 5.93 million chips. That lead wasn’t a huge one, however, as Isaac Haxton was within about 700K in chips (5.205 million) of Canada’s favorite son. Sion started the day in the middle of the pack with his 4.75 million chips, with Germany’s Johannes Becker (4.56 million), Austria’s Ivo Donev (2.99 million

Martin Kozlov Stunningly Wins Event #39, Christopher Vitch Captures Elusive Gold in Event #40

At the 2016 World Series of Poker on Saturday, two events reached their conclusions and awarded the prestigious gold bracelet. On tournament would end stunningly with a conclusion that is rarely seen in tournament poker, while the second was a reward for a player who had come agonizingly close previously. Event #39 – $ 10,000 Six-Handed No Limit Hold’em World Championship 21 players came back to the felt on Saturday, looking to claim the title in the latest $ 10,000 event at the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino. Nick Petrangelo was atop the table holding nearly two million in chips (1.946 million, to be exact) and the list of challengers was plentiful and looking to add to their bracelet collections. Vanessa Selbst was nipping at Petrangelo’s heels with her 1.942 million stack, while Jonathan Little, Paul Volpe, Frank Kassela and Scott Seiver were all in the mix. But there

2016 WSOP Preliminary Events: Robert Mizrachi Captures Fourth Bracelet in $10K Stud, “Colossus II” and Dealer’s Choice at Final Table

It was a busy Monday of action around the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino as the 2016 World Series of Poker awarded two more bracelets and set the final table for two other events. Event #2 – $ 565 “Colossus II” No Limit Hold’em 78 players were back on the grind on Monday in “Colossus II,” with the goal by the end of the night to be at the final table of nine. Holding the lead at the end of Flight C and Day 2, Ben Lindemulder was in the best position of making the final table with his 5.325 million in chips, but players such as Richard Carr (3.55 million) and Vincent Moscati (3.3 million) were waiting for him to falter. Although everyone was guaranteed at least a $ 10,289 payday (not too shabby for a $ 565 investment), all eyes were on the million dollar guaranteed first

Romanian Vlad Darie Captures WPT Vienna Title, Dietrich Fast Makes Another Final Table

In what proved to be a highly entertaining final table, Romania’s Vlad Darie defeated start-of-day chip lead Zoltan Gal to take down the World Poker Tour Vienna title on Sunday afternoon (U. S. time). When the six men gathered at the Montesino Wien in Vienna on Sunday, they were the survivors from the 215 unique entries that the tournament had garnered. Along with 19 rebuys in the tournament, the total prize pool of €680,940 (a little more than $ 757,000 U. S.) had already seen some of it handed out to the previous 21 finishers in the tournament. These final six men, however, would divvy up the lion’s share of the wildebeest, with the eventual champion taking down a nice €157,000 payday. Although Gal held the lead at the start of the day, it was really anyone’s tournament as the men were tightly packed together on the leaderboard. Reigning L.
