2017 World Series of Poker Europe: Final 13 Players Determined in Event #1 With Italy’s Carlo Savinelli Leading

It was moving day at the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe on Sunday as the kickoff tournament for the schedule, the €1000 No Limit Hold’em, tried to reach its final table. While it didn’t reach that audacious goal, the final 13 players were determined with Italy’s Carlo Savinelli holding down the lead. 115 players came back on Sunday afternoon to the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, for Day 2 with dreams of a WSOP championship dancing in their heads. Leading the way after a dominant Day 1C was Sander van Wesemael, who held a monstrous stack of 323,500 chips to start action. Following him up were nine-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Valentin Vornicu, Day 1A chip leader Ismael Bojang and Day 1B chip leader Sergio Fernandez. Although these men held big stacks to start the day, they still had to make sure they made it to the money.

2017 PokerStars Championship Panama Main Event: Igor Yaroshevskyy Continues Domination in Leading Day 2

After crushing what was the smaller of the Day One fields, Ukrainian poker professional Igor Yaroshevskyy has continued his domination as he holds the Day 2 lead at the PokerStars Championship Panama’s Main Event. Yaroshevskyy, sitting on top of 219,600 in chips, came into Day 2 with a monstrous lead over the remaining 171 players that remained after 366 players started the event. Second place was a bit of a surprise for many in the form of MMA champion Tito Ortiz, but those who underestimated him on Day 1A fell to his wrath as he amassed 182,000 chips. The Day 1B chip leader, Jiachen Gong, was in fourth place with 154,300 in chips, but he was looking way up at Yaroshevskyy as he strove to catch him. One of the bits of business that had to be completed at the start of Day 2 in the Solis Hotel, Spa &

2017 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Day Two: 22 Players Remain with Canadian Ronald Laplante Leading

Day Two of the World Poker Tour’s stop at the 2017 Fallsview Poker Classic is in the books. After popping the money bubble early in the day, the tournament was only able to work down to the final 22 players that will be headed by local player Ronald Laplante and facing a hectic Day Three for this afternoon. 148 hopefuls came back with the dreams of WPT glory in their minds and poker pro Ben Wilinofsky at the head of the field with his 275,900 in chips. As typical after surviving the Day One minefield, those that were on the short stacks tried to “double up or go home” and some were successful in that effort. Connor Drinan, not exactly hurting on a 100K-plus stack, doubled through Henry Tran after Drinan’s 5-4 found a miracle on an 8-4-4 flop against Tran’s A-3. The same couldn’t be said for Andre Defelice,

2016 WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic Day 5: Final Table Determined with James Romero, Ryan Tosoc Leading Justin Bonomo

The final table has been determined for the 2016 World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic Main Event and it is shaping up to be an impressive battle. While James Romero has been able to pull away from the pack a bit, players such as Ryan Tosoc and Justin Bonomo (just to name a couple) are poised to try to take him down. Starting the action on Friday, the 19 players remaining were looking to capture one of the sextet of seats that would be in action later today. Tosoc was at the helm of the pack with Bonomo in pursuit, but it was three-time Super Bowl champion Richard Seymour who was drawing the attention down the leaderboard. Unfortunately for Seymour, his deep run in this WPT event ended earlier than he wanted on Friday afternoon. About two hours into the Day 5 play, Tosoc pushed out a bet

The entirety of the humongous field for “Colossus II” came together for the first time on Sunday at the 2016 World Series of Poker while, off in its own quiet little corner of the Amazon Room, the deep-pocketed pros who came back for Day 2 of the $ 10,000 Seven Card Stud World Championship determined their final table. Event #2 – $ 565 “Colossus II” No Limit Hold’em After drawing in 21,613 entries for the tournament, the 846 players who came back on Sunday were all in the money. After calculations were complete, these remaining players were all guaranteed $ 2200 for their efforts (more than the $ 850 or so that players eliminated during the six Flights on Day 1), but no one wanted to depart with that pittance as $ 1 million was up for grabs for the champion.
