Ryan Tosoc Wins 2017 WPT Five Diamond Poker Classic

Let’s just say that Ryan Tosoc will be staying at the Bellagio whenever he is in Las Vegas. This weekend, Tosoc won the World Poker Tour (WPT) Five Diamond World Poker Classic Main Event and nearly $ 2 million, just a year after finishing this same tournament as the runner-up and earning over $ 1.1 million. Methinks he can splurge for the Bellagio’s Presidential Suite* during his next stay. Last year’s event was the largest-ever for the Five Diamond, as it garnered 791 entries. This one was bigger, with the re-entry format helping the field climb to 812 $ 10,000 entries. If you did the math above (with my rounded-off numbers), Tosoc has now won more than $ 3 million at the Five Diamond, accounting for the vast majority of his live tournament earnings. He has a nice list of cashes, but only one other is even in the low

2017 WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic Day 4 – Sean Perry Leads Final Table with Ryan Tosoc, Mike Del Vecchio in Pursuit

The penultimate day of the 2017 World Poker Tour’s Five Diamond World Poker Classic is set for play on Sunday afternoon at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. After almost a week of play Sean Perry, the son of poker professional Ralph Perry, sits in the first slot on the leaderboard, but Ryan Tosoc (making his second consecutive WPT Five Diamond final table) and Mike Del Vecchio (who has been around the top of the leaderboard all tournament) in pursuit. The final 18 players came back to the felt on Saturday to work to the final six. At the start of action on Saturday, Ajay Chabra was looking down at those in pursuit. It was quite a list of players in pursuit of him, with high stakes cash game player Lauren Roberts, ‘Big One for One Drop’ champion Dan Colman, Perry, Tosoc and Del Vecchio all arranged on the board behind

2017 World Series of Poker Europe: Ismael Bojang Leads Event #1, Defending Champ Ryan Hefter in Top Five

If it is an odd-numbered year, it means that the World Series of Poker is taking its show to Europe. This year the WSOP-E has landed at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, where the next fortnight will see 11 bracelets contested. Up first for the players is Event #1, the €1000 No Limit Hold’em Monster Stack tournament. Thursday afternoon saw the first of three-Day Ones take flight, with the players holding the option of playing in all three in an attempt to build a stack. Those three-Day Ones were going to be long ones, with 14 levels of play and late registration open until the start of Level 8. As Day 1A hit the felt, it was a bit of a surprise how many top players were a part of the proceedings. John Racener, who is vying with Chris Ferguson for the WSOP Player of the Year award,

Ryan Riess Picks Up Second Leg of Triple Crown, Wins WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale

Working his way through one of the final $ 10,000 buy-in events left on the World Poker Tour schedule, former World Champion Ryan Riess emerged from a tough final table to take the second leg of poker’s “Triple Crown” in winning the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale last night. Coming into the action on Thursday, Riess was second in chips (with his 3.09 million stack) behind only former WPT champion Alan Sternberg, who was on top of the final table with 4.605 million chips. There were potential trouble spots in every other seat, with 2016 “November Niner” Cliff Josephy (1.855 million) and top pros Tim West (1.995 million) and Jason Koon (1.03 million) awaiting the battle. Even arguably the least experienced player on the table, Terry Schumacher (1.385 million), had a lengthy international poker resume (with Hendon Mob flags from Australia, Spain, the U. S. and his native Belgium)

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
