2018 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Day 3: Scott Margereson Amasses Gigantic Chip Lead

The World Poker Tour (WPT) Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown is speeding to its conclusion, as Day 3 saw the field narrowed from 81 to just 14. Things will slow down a bit today, though, as the plan is to get rid of just eight players to set up the six-handed final table. One would think, though, that this would at least mean Day 4 will be relatively short. But with the money jumps starting to increase and spots at the final table on the line, you never know how things might play out. One thing we feel safe to predict is that chip leader Scott Margereson will be around a while, as with 9.210 million chips, he has more than double the stack of his closest competitor. Margereson is in search of his first World Poker Tour title. In fact, of the remaining 14 players, only Victor Ramdin is

2017 WSOP Europe Main Event Day 3 – Robert Bickley Vaults to Chip Lead on Final Hand of Day

Just 46 players remain of the original 529 entries in the 2017 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Europe Main Event after Day 3 of action at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. Sitting atop the standings is the UK’s Robert Bickley with 1.431 million chips It can be interesting to see how the standings change day to day in a large tournament. Going into Day 3, Vishal Maini was in first place with 651,000 chips and nobody was close to him, on a relative scale, as he had nearly 200,000 more chips than the second place player. Maini is still among the leaders, but he was unable to amass many chips on Tuesday, finishing the day with only 790,000, about half of what Bickley has. Whereas Maini had a substantial lead at the end of Monday, the top of the leader board is much more congested (again, looking at the

2017 WPT Legends of Poker Day 1B: Valentin Vornicu Makes Most of Second Chance, Takes Over Chip Lead

After coming up dry on Day 1A of the event, Valentin Vornicu got the most out of his second shot at the tournament on Saturday, emerging as the overall leader of the 2017 World Poker Tour Legends of Poker with one more Day One left. Looking to top Day 1A’s 155 entries, Day 1B saw another throng of poker professionals and amateurs looking to take their shot. At the sounding of the “shuffle up and deal” call, notables such as WPT Champions’ Club members Tony Dunst and Barry Greenstein were at their tables alongside Eric Baldwin, Ray Quartomy, and Matt Stout, who were all back from their Day 1A disappointment for another chance. Vornicu was on that list also, but the day didn’t start very well for him. About three hours into Saturday’s play, Vornicu found himself staring at a Q♠ 10♦ 6♣ 5♣ 8♣ board, Vornicu fired off a

Money Bubble Pops at PokerStars Championship Barcelona, Benjamin Richardson Holds Chip Lead

After taking a break for this summer’s World Series of Poker, the PokerStars Championships have come back with a bang. After Day 3 at the Casino Barcelona in Spain, Benjamin Richardson is holding down the top slot on the leaderboard with 2.804 million in chips. There were going to be some unhappy campers who came back to the felt on Thursday. 287 players remained from the sizeable 1682 player field, but only 247 of those players would partake of a piece of the €8,157,700 prize pool that was built. At the start of the day, Mauricio Salazar Sanchez was the chip leader with 507,000 in chips, but he faced challenges from such pros as WSOP bracelet winner Asi Moshe (411,500), Patrick Leonard (394,000), Kyle Bowker (392,500), Dario Sammartino (355,500) and Juha Helppi (335,000), just to name a few. With 40 players to eliminate, it was natural that the play was

2017 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event Day 1B: Top Four Survivors from Day’s Action Take Overall Chip Lead

The second of two-Day Ones is in the books at the 2017 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event, with the top four finishers from the Day 1B action taking down the overall leaderboard of the tournament because of their play. Before the cards even went into the air on Saturday, an important milestone had been eclipsed. With 212 players in their seats (at $ 5000 a pop), the $ 3 million guarantee was met for the Main Event. This was important because the last three SHRPO Main Events had failed to meet their guarantees, with the Seminole Indian operators of the Hard Rock picking up the overlay. Before the tournament even started, the Tribe was clear of any financial dues for the tournament, something that they had to be pleased with. As with Day 1A, top poker pros were more than willing to step back into the ring following
