Two Day Ones Completed in PokerStars Championship Panama Main Event, Overall Numbers Down

The PokerStars Championships have made their inaugural swing to the Sortis Hotel, Spa and Casino in Panama City, Panama. The $ 3500 Main Event has booked its two-Day Ones at this point, but it is arguable that the overall numbers might be a bit low for the side tournaments and the Main Event. On Day 1A, slightly more than 100 players would answer the bell for action, with a noted fighter emerging at the top of the standings. While Igor Yaroshevskyy reigned supreme over the Day 1A survivors with his 219,300 in chips, it was retired MMA champion Tito Ortiz who was drawing the lion’s share of attention. Ortiz, who has fought and won championships in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and most recently fought for Bellator MMA, was in second place behind Yaroshevskyy with his 182,000 in chips, setting himself up for Day Two well. Along with Jason Koon

2016 WPT bestbet Jacksonville Bounty Scramble: Two Day Ones in the Books, Jean “Prince” Gaspard Leads Final 142 Players

The two Day Ones for the 2016 WPT bestbet Jacksonville Bounty Scramble are in the books and, as the tournament comes together for Day 2 on Sunday, California pro Jean “Prince” Gaspard is at the top of the leaderboard of the 142 players left. The tournament structure was such that it was going to be easy to crack the $ 1 million guarantee. The tournament features unlimited re-entries (at $ 5000 a pop) up until the dinner break on each of the two Day Ones for the tournament. That meant that, needing only 200 entries to break the guarantee, it was highly likely that the WPT bestbet Jacksonville Bounty Scramble would be smashed. Toss in the addition of 25 bounties on certain players (at $ 2500 a pop) and the action was hectic over the first two days. 163 players came out for Day 1A on Friday, nearly reaching the

Michael Hahn Takes Overall Lead After Two Day Ones at WPT Choctaw

The two Day Ones for the World Poker Tour’s Season XV stop at the Choctaw Casino Resort in Oklahoma are in the books. Coming through the larger of the two, Michael Hahn ended Day 1B with a sizeable chip stack of 370,000 chips to pace the field heading to Sunday’s Day 2 action. With more than 1000 entries already received in the $ 3500 buy in tournament (easily outpacing the $ 3 million guaranteed prize pool) and late registration not ending until the start of Day 2 today, the tournament promises to be entertaining throughout the upcoming week. Festivities started on Friday at the Choctaw Casino Resort with 387 entries being registered by the end of the night’s action (the tournament featured unlimited rebuys until the start of Day 2). Despite their best efforts, players such as Brandon Cantu (who made a wild bluff on a J-10-9-5-4 board with only

2016 EPT Grand Final Main Event: Largest Field in Grand Final History Comes Out for Two Day Ones, Albert Daher Leads

The finale for its Season 12 schedule, the European Poker Tour’s Grand Final has exceeded expectations on the coast of the Mediterranean. After two Day Ones, the largest EPT Grand Final field of 1068 players had come to the tables in the Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco (potentially with more to come), making the EPT bosses look brilliant in lowering the buy in for the tournament from its former traditional €10,000 to its price in 2016 of €5000. Day 1A arose bright and sunny on Saturday with 286 players coming to the tables to stake their claim European poker’s biggest prize. The mixture of satellite winners was punctuated with the appearance of a significant tournament professional, but it was the showing of one of football’s best players that seemed to excite many in the tournament arena. Team PokerStars SportsStar Cristiano Ronaldo was on hand to take his shot at poker

2015 WPT Maryland Live! Main Event: Xin Wang Holds Lead after Two Day Ones in Inaugural Tournament

Not one to rest on their laurels, the World Poker Tour quickly swung back into action after the conclusion of the Borgata Poker Open. In fact, while David Paredes was wrapping up the championship of that event, the first of two Day Ones took place at the newest venue for the WPT, Maryland Live! in, of course, Hanover, MD. There was a bit of trepidation on the part of WPT officials when Day 1A started on Friday. Although notable pros such as Brock Parker, Christian Harder, Allen Kessler and Darren Elias (who must have caught the train straight from his 17th place finish at the Borgata on Thursday), the numbers just weren’t rushing the doors of the Maryland Live! Casino. With one reentry for each day in this $ 3500 tournament until the close of Level 7 (after the dinner break), however, it was sure to draw in some players
