2017 World Series of Poker Europe: Theodore McQuilkin Tops Six Handed Event, European “Colossus” and PLO Underway

The King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, has been a hotbed of activity over the past week with the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe in action on its grounds. It’s about to kick up another notch as the European version of “The Colossus” hits full stride, while it is also time to celebrate as the fourth bracelet of the schedule has been awarded. Event #4 – €1500 Six Handed No Limit Hold’em After being advised not to play in the tournament because it would be a “tough field,” France’s Theodore McQuilkin decided to go ahead and win his first WSOP bracelet and a first-place payday of €88,043. McQuilkin came into the final table on Saturday in the bottom half of the standings with his 754,000 in chips, better than only Maksym Shulga and Petr Setka.

PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo Underway with High Rollers Tournament Starting

After mixed results from their two previous stops in the Bahamas and Panama, the PokerStars Championship has churned on to one of the wealthiest places on Earth (the net worth of an average household in the city? $ 437,031), Monte Carlo, and the Monte Carlo Casino. The €100,000 Super High Roller tournament started on Thursday while a €10,000 tournament with a surprisingly low number of players wrapped up. That €10,000 tournament was a bit of a surprise. Only 110 players made an appearance in the tournament, but the price tag of the event ensured they would be playing for a million-dollar prize pool (€1,067,000, to be exact). After battling through a field that included former World Champion Ryan Riess (who started the day as the chip leader), Luc Greenwood, Steve O’Dwyer, and Koray Aldemir, Ole Schemion was able to defeat Murad Akhundov to win the championship. While Schemion picked up

2017 Aussie Millions Underway, Sam Ingham Takes Day 1A Chip Lead

One of the most popular poker events that isn’t the part of a major tournament “tour” or schedule – the Aussie Millions – has been underway for the past few days. On Sunday at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, the $ 10,000 buy in Main Event took to the stage with the first of three-Day Ones for the international poker world to dive into. With registration in the tournament lasting until Level 8 in the tournament, the players were relaxed about making their way to the tables. Add in the fact that there will only be seven levels of play (at 90 minutes per level) for each of the Day One flights (and, doing the math, latecomers could register up until the start of action on Day 2), the pace of the players dropping their cash at the cage was almost glacial. Still, there were some of poker’s brightest icon
