2017 WPT Montreal Main Event: Robert Rose Leads After Starting Flights

The weekend saw the start of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Montreal Main Event at the Playground Poker Club, a CAD $ 3,850 tourney with a guaranteed prize pool of CAD $ 2 million. Tournament organizers are hoping to match the excitement of last year’s WPT Montreal, which saw Poker Hall of Famer and legendary WPT announcer Mike Sexton finally win his first World Poker Tour title. Sexton is back this year – no longer behind the mic – and made it through Day 1C after busting at the tail end of Day 1B. The chip leader of Day 1C and the overall leader of the event going into Monday’s action is Robert Rose with 300,600 chips. As is evident by the opening paragraph, this is a re-entry event, though re-entries were not restricted to only those who lost all of their chips. Even those who finished a starting flight

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

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

2016 WSOP, Preliminary Events: “Colossus II” Lumbers to Finish Line, $10K Stud Final Table Set with Robert Mizrachi Leading

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. Starting the day, Flight F chip leader Norman Michalek

David Ormsby Denies Chip Leader Robert Forbes in Winning WPT Fallsview Championship

Although he came to the final table as the second shortest stack, David Ormsby would stick around long enough to become a thorn in the start of day chip leader Robert Forbes’ side, eventually defeating Forbes to take the championship of the World Poker Tour’s stop at the Fallsview Poker Classic in Canada on Thursday evening. It definitely looked bleak for Ormsby at the start. With only 1.55 million in chips, he led only Thomas Archer (880,000 in chips) on the leaderboard when play began on Thursday afternoon. Ormsby was looking up at some difficult players that included Derek Verrian (1.565 million), Soren Turkewitsch (1.83 million), Mike Bui (2.86 million) and the previously mentioned Forbes, who was dominating the final table with his 4.015 million chip count. Knowing he needed to make a move quick, Archer would push his chip stack to the center on the third hand of play
