Maria Lampropulos, Christopher Kruk Take Early Leads in Player of the Year Races

Yes, it is very early in the year. Yes, these folks probably won’t be here when we come to June (heck, maybe even March). But, for right now, two players – Maria Lampropulos and Christopher Kruk – can lay claim to the title of “best poker player” as they lead the Poker Player of the Year races. On the CardPlayer Player of the Year rankings, it is the champion of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure who can lay claim to the crown. The Argentine sensation romped to the title and its million dollars plus payday earlier this week, earning 2100 points for her efforts. The runner up in that tournament, Shawn Buchanan, settles into the second-place slot on the CardPlayer rankings, earning 1750 points for his performance in the tournament. Also making a nice showing at the 2018 PCA was Koray Aldemir, who took third in the Main Event and finished

2017 World Series of Poker Europe: Maria Ho on Verge of History, Leads Main Event Final Table

After battling through 529 players, the final six competitors have been determined for the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event final table. Looking to make history (as she has already done in this event), Maria Ho will look to carry on the lead she’s held for the past two days and turn it into a championship. 12 players started the day at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, with several stories looking to unfold. While all eyes would have normally been on the historic run of Ho, there was another bit of history evident in the appearance of defending WSOP-E champion Kevin MacPhee. MacPhee was looking to do something that hadn’t been done since Johnny Chan in 1987/88 – win back-to-back WSOP Main Event titles – but he had his work cut out for him on the short stack (1.06 million). Add in two strong Brits –

2016 WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Day 3: Final Table Determined, Stefan Schillhabel On Top of Ladder, Shooting Star Maria Ho Remains

The final table has been determined for the 2016 World Poker Tour’s Bay 101 Shooting Star event in San Jose, CA and only one Shooting Star, poker professional/announcer Maria Ho, remains with their bounty intact. To say the Day 3 field was a competitive one would be a huge understatement. Dylan Linde brought the 36 survivors to the line for the start of action on Thursday, looking at a long day of work to reach the six-player final table before stopping. There were still five Shooting Stars left in the field at this time – Noah Schwartz (1.32 million chips), Dominik Nitsche (1.043 million), Connor Drinan (359K), Matt Salsberg (340K) and Ho (462K) – along with other contenders such as Kyle Julius and WPT Champions’ Club members Shawn Buchanan, Anthony Gregg, Alexander Lakhov and Griffin Paul. In addition to this title, two players – Jake Schwartz and Andjelko Andrejevic –
