I've been waylaid fir a few days, so here's the catch-up.


Tikay10 said:

A lot of stuff to report on there Barny, must take an age, but it's appreciated.

Thanks Tikay. Most days it takes between an hour and a half and two hours. Here's today's ramblings with three tournaments reaching their denouement





Event 19 - $1500 Millionaire Maker, Day 5 of 5, 8809 entries



After five days, the winner of the Millionaire Maker proved to be 42-year-old John Gorsuch who, while has plenty of cashes on Hendon Mob, was actually winning his first recorded event with a $1.3m boost to his bank balance.

For a long while, it looked like the bracelet was going to Japan and Kazuki Ikeuchi - four handed he had 112BB while the other three players had less than 10BB each. But Gorsuch kept at it, got a little lucky in places, played well in others and benefitted by other players errors in others. Ikeuchi finished second in a WSOP event for the second year running, as he was part of the second placed team in the Tag Team event last year.

Third place went to Lokesh Garg.


Event 23 - $1500 Eight Game Mix, Day 4 of 3, 612 entries


Coming back for an unscheduled Day 4, it only took half an hour for Rami Boukai to see off John Evans in a hand of Limit Hold'em

Boukal takes $177K and his second bracelet while Evans settles for a career best of nearly $110K.


Event 25 - $600 PLO Deepstack, Day 3 of 2, 2577 entries


The third bracelet of the day went to Andrew Donabedian a regular placed player on the WSOP circuit, but only tends to win one event a year (always in PLO). He saved 2019's win for the big stage and collected $205K for his three days of work.

Todd Dreyer finished second ($127K) and Robert Valden ($92K) was third.

Of the others who I mentioned yesterday, Day 1 & 2 chip leader Corey Wright was 4th and Tom Franklin departed in 7th.


Event 26 - $2520 NLH Marathon, Day 3 of 6, 1083 entries



Three days down, three days to go with the lead now belonging to Matt Russell ahead of 51 other survivors.

Peter Hong and Johan Guilbert make up the top three, both of whom have recorded cashes dating back to 2010, but are still awaiting the really big one.

Joseph Cheong came close to getting one of the biggest of all the big ones, the 2010 ME but he finished third to Jonathan Duhamel when he won over $4m but he's still involved here but with an unspecified stack.

Previous bracelet winners Preston Lee, Mohsin Chanaria, Daniel Park and Ryan Leng are all still in, with a sole British challenger in Paul Hizer.

The current pay level is just over $8K, but the ladders will start to get substantial fairly soon with the eventual winner bagging $477K.


Event 27 - $1500 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or better, Day 3 of 4, 460 entries



Six players remain in Event 27, and for the second day running the chip lead is in the formidable hands of Michael Mizrachi.

He only has 23 Big Bets heading into the final day, but that is more than nearest challengers Michael Sopko (20) and Robert Gray (17)

There is a rare Bolivian presence on a FT in the shape of Jose Paz-Guttierez, while the short stack Jan Stein has been playing WSOP events for 19 years without making a FT and he's ridden his luck making this one - he's been all-in and doubled up four times on Day 3.


Event 28 - $1000 NLH, Day 2 of 3, 2477 entries


Six left in this one also, and we have a big gap between first and second. Stephen Song hit all the right notes and has over 24m chips with second placed Sevak Mikaiel having about a quarter of that.

The only bracelet holder remaining is Ryan Laplante who sits in 4th place, but with not much 2nd and 6th it's really Song against the field at this point.

Phil Hellmuth had a deep run in this, making the last two tables but eventually falling in 16th.

The German with a very Italian name, Giuseppe Pantaleo is the chip leader after Day 1 of Event 28 with local player Steven McNally and China's Yang Zhang second and third.

The biggest British cashes went to Andrew Hills and Nathan Watson (42nd & 43rd respectively for $7356), Louis Salter, Iaron Lightbourne, Samuel Simister, David Marshall, Yudhishter Jaswal and Wayne Blodwell


Event 29 - $10K HORSE, Day 2 of 4, 172 entries so far


Brian Hastings has, to put it mildly, a chequered past but is undeniably a very succesful player. He was third on Day 1 and moved in the lead on Day 2, pushing the Day 1 leader Daniel Ospina down into second. Together with Dario Sammartino, they are the only ones with over a million chips at this point.

11 of the 20 remaining players are bracelet winners, including Scott Clements who bagged his 2nd in Event 11 a week ago.

The opening exchanges of the big HORSE events saw 161 entries, just 5 below last year's figure and with late reg still open we may well beat last year's total.

No Brits even managed to cash, and a few of the Day 2 casualties were Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey, Brian Rast and defending champion John Hennigan.


Event 30 - $1000 PLO, Day 1 of 3, 1526 entries


A long day of PLO with over 13 hours at the tables has ended with Stefan Ivanov coming through late to claim the chip lead with just 309 players making Day 2.

The Bulgarian leads Luis Zedan and Joseph Sabe in the top 3, with 229 to be paid and the eventual winner taking home $236K.

The two top Brits sit side-by-side overnight, Jerome Bradpiece 1000 chips better off than Peter Linton in 58th & 59th. Chris Moorman, Philip Long, Jan Collado, Dimitri Holdeew, Sam Razavi, Adam Owen, Gasam Alaaldin, Jaspreet Panchhi, Usman Siddique, Joe Beevers, Lloyd Muir, Warren Colman, Paresh Doshi and Mohammad Ladak make up a strong British challenge, both in terms of numbers and quality.

After winning the PLO Deepstack, Andrew Donabedian jumped into this and is still technically in with a shout of a quick fire double, but he'll have to do a double of a different sort pretty sharpish on Day 2 as he has one of the smallest stacks in the entire field.

Some familiar names still in include Anton Morgenstern, JC Tran, Dan Shak, Eoghan O'Dea and Vitali Lunkin.


Event 31 - $3K NLH 6-max, Day 1 of 4, 754 entries



754 players started but only 140 finished Day 1 with the leader being 2016 November Niner Griff Benger

Syvlain Loosli has made the FT of both the Main in the main Vegas WSOP and the WSOP Europe and he's still in, as is another who had a big run in the main, last years runner up Tony Miles.

Eight different nationalities in the top 8 places, with the British representative the 8th-placed Robert Bickley with Daniel Tang and Thomas Cazayous both inside the top 20 and Raul Martinez, Jonathan Proudfoot and Michael Kane inside the top 50.

Event 26 - $2520 NLH Marathon, Day 5 of 6, 1083 entries


Down to two tables (and 16 players) in the Marathon, with Russian Romanev ahead of two Chinese players Yicheng Xu and Dong Sheng Peng.

They play down to 6 today with an average stack on the table of 44BB so plenty of play still left yet.

I think there's two previous bracelet winners still left in Preston Lee and Daniel Park, but they're both among the shorties.

The last British challenger Paul Hizer bit the dust midway through the day and finished 30th for $11K.

Everyone left has earned at least $16K, but survive just one more elimination and that jumps to $21K and the ladders just get better from there.


Event 27 - $1500 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or better, Day 4 of 4, 460 entries


It's a fifth bracelet (breaking the tie with his brother) for Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, making him the most successful (in terms of bracelets at least) player of the 2010s.

After the Bolivian challenge was removed early, the 5 Americans were left to fight it out, Jan Stein was knocked out quickly after and Elias Hourani followed after the first break.

3-handed play was very swingy but eventually Michael Sopko swung down and out, leaving Mizrachi against Robert Gray. That started more or less even but it didn't take long for Mizrachi to establish an advantage which he drove home for that fifth bracelet and $142K.


Event 28 - $1000 NLH, Day 3 of 3, 2477 entries



In 2008, Peter Kay in an alter-ego as Geraldine McQueen had a number two hit called "The Winner's Song". His prescience came good 11 years later as in Event 28 was indeed Song. Stephen Song.

Song started the day with a big chip lead, but it took him nearly four hours to beat his five rivals after losing a couple of big pots midway through the day temporarily dropped him to third. He was all-in against Ryan Laplante but managed to hit a flush draw on the river to double up three-handed, and twenty hands later he bust Laplante in 3rd, and after ten more Scot Masters became his final victim.

He's had some success on the WSOP domestic circuit, but this is far and away his biggest win and the $341K he got more than doubles his biggest payday.


Event 29 - $10K HORSE, Day 3 of 4, 172 entries



Seven left jockeying for position on the final table of the $10K horse with Dario Sammartino at the head of the field, with three times as many chips as second placed Craig Chait.

The next three on the chip listings all have at least one bracelet, Scott Clements (who remember won his earlier this month), Greg Mueller and Daniel Ospina.

That leaves Mikhail Semin from Russia in 6th and Matthew Gonzales whipping them in with just 1 Big Bet in his stack.


Event 30 - $1000 PLO, Day 2 of 3, 1526 entries

Just 58 planers remain heading into Day 3 and amazingly 57 of them are looking for their first bracelet. The one that isn't is David Halpern who won a Stud Hi/Lo event ten years ago (but has only two cashes since, including 4th in this year's Event 4)

The chip leader is Gary Bolden ahead of Gregory Donatelli and Anton Morgenstern not far behind.

Two Brits, both familiar names who most people would love to see break their bracelet duck, Sam Razavi in 23rd and Joe Beevers among the short stacks in 54th. Two from Ireland too - Aidan Hynes & Zeik Tuit.

Finally 12th placed player Matthew Maggard is from a town called Floyds Knobs, Indiana. Make your own jokes here.


Event 31 - $3K NLH 6-max, Day 3 of 4, 754 entries


Exactly 20 players bagged and tagged at the end of Day 3 with a player who seems to specalise in odd-numbered years, Upeshka Da Silva in the chip lead. He has won bracelets in 2015 & 2017 and is looking to add 2019 to that list.

Along with Nicholas Howard and Thomas Cazayous, the top three have pulled away from the field a little but of course its NLH so one big double up from someone else could upset that order fairly quickly.

A couple of bracelet holders remain, Angel Guillen and Kyle Cartwright but the likes of Negreanu, Ferguson & Cada all went out on Day 3.

Cazayous is a French player resident in London and we have another EU national/London resident in for the ride in Raul Martinez while a 100% Brit survives in Jonathan Proudfoot, who already has a cash in the series back in the Shootout Event.

It was a big day for Toronto yesterday with the Raptors claiming the NBA Championship and there are two Torontonians (I think that's the correct word) inside the final 20, both great names that it's safer to cut and paste rather than risk getting them wrong: Veerab Zakarian and Demosthenes Kiriopoulos


Event 32 - Seniors NLH, Day 1 of 4, 5916 entrants

A tantalising two short of last year's record field, with 1778 of them making Day 2.

888 poker is one of the event's sponsors, but it may well be co-incidence that 888 players will make the money. Then again, it may not.

Dominick Scarola is the Day 1 chip leader with Adilson Moraes in second and Albert Halfon third. Halfon will have a story to tell his mates back home - Phil Hellmuth entered late and came to Halfon's table, and Halfon promptly busted him and added Hellmuth's chips to his already decent stack.

Mark Kroon is a long-time mate of Hellmuth's and as such was heavily featured in the TV coverage of the 2015 ME, making the Top 50 and lies 6th here after Day 1 while the top Brit is Keith Littlewood in 20th.

Some other well-known names making day 2 include Victor Ramdin, Barry Greenstein, Barbara Enright and Joe Hachem while amongst the UK challenge are Richard Chamberlain, Robert Parkin, Gary Solomons, Alain Bauer and Peter Costa all inside the top 300 with Paul Jackson is lurking a little (well quite a bit really) further down.


Event 33 - $1500, Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw, Day 1 of 3, 467 entries


It's a British chip leader at the end of Day 1 of Event 33. Benny Glaser leads the 139 who are playing for 71 places in the cash and eventually the bracelet and $144K first prize.

Early days of course, but good to see Ben Dobson, Nicholas Marchington also there with the Union Jack beside their names.

Other survivors include defending bracelet holder Hanh Tran, Phil Hellmuth who has lasted longer in this than the Seniors, Daniel Negreanu and Nick Schulman.

Report from 2p2, looks like Keith's idol is involved in some shenanigans Smiley

This is getting feisty. Matt Glantz just walked over to the table and him and Negreanu were really going at one another.

MG “You probably didn’t realise you were angleshooting”.
DN “I should probably break one of your teeth”
MG “What the **** for? You want me to expose what you did?”
DN “You stupid mother ****er. What the **** are you even doing here? **** off”.

Voices were loud, floor rushed over, Glantz escorted back to his table and things have calmed down a bit now.

Event 26 - $2520 NLH Marathon, Day 5 of 6, 1083 entries


The WSOP event that seems like it has been going on longer than the Cricket World Cup has at last reached its final table of 6.

Jared Koppel has the chip lead with 11.7 chips, almost double the stack of Dong Sheng Peng in 2nd (5.8m).

Behind that come Francis Anderson (3.7m), Roman Korenev (3.3m) , Joseph Liberta (2.5m) and Joe Curcio (1.5m)


Event 29 - $10K HORSE, Day 4 of 4, 172 entries


It's a third bracelet for Canadian Greg Mueller as he defeated Colombia's Daniel Ospina heads-up for the bracelet and over $425K. Mueller's first two bracelets came just a fortnight apart back in 2009, both in Limit Hold'em.

Dario Sammartino finished third and Event 10 winner Scott Clements was fourth.


Event 30 - $1000 PLO, Day 3 of 3, 1526 entries


Extra time will be needed here as 5 players are still involved at the end of the scheduled three days play.

There is still a British interest as Sam Razavi is the short stack of the table. Sam lost a hand to Thida Lin when her Aces made a flush while Sam's Aces didn't

The chip leader is Luis Zedan who went on a wrecking run and now has about 50% of the chips in play.

The other two players left are both Ryans, Robinson (USA) and Goindoo (Trinidad & Tobago) who also had a deep run in this same tournament last year when finishing 18th.

The only previous bracelet winner left on Day 3, David Halpert went out in 34th and Joe Beevers was knocked out in 46th for a little over $4K.


Event 31 - $3K NLH 6-max, Day 4 of 4, 754 entries


Can we claim this as a part-British bracelet? 24 year old Gallic pro Thomas Cazayous is resident in London and was shown as being from GB for most of the duration of the event, but is now showing (properly) as French.

It is his first bracelet on his first FT and only his 5th ever cash (for $414K) after being Nicholas Howard heads-up with Upeshka De Silva in third.

Raul Martinez finished 6th and Jonathan Proudfoot 10th ($31595)


Event 32 - Seniors NLH, Day 2 of 4, 5916 entrants


Two days down in the Over 50s event and 252 players remaining. It's Howard Mash who has been the most successful over the first two days being the only player to bag over 2 million chips.

Two local players, Anthony Martin and Victor Ramdin have over 1.5m in second and third.

The British challenge has been reduced to 5 - David Stonehouse, Keith Littlewood, Ali Zihni, Peter Costa and Julian Mann.

Edit - Add Antony Ringe to that list, although he's shown as Estonian.

Barry Greenstein and Layne Flack are two of the better known players remaining,

All the players are guaranteed a minimum of $3279 with the winner taking home over $662K.


Event 33 - $1500, Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw, Day 2 of 3, 467 entries


2018 winner Hanh Tran has moved to the top of the chip listings after the penultimate day of this, the Austrian one of just 17 survivors.

Jared Bleznick sits second while Frankie O'Dell is third. O'Dell together with 13th placed Daniel Strelitz are both looking for their second bracelet of 2019.

The only British player among the 17 is 3-time bracelet winner and Day 1 chip leader Benny Glaser, lying in the middle of the pack.


Event 34 - $1000 Double Stack NLH, 5 Day Event, Day 1A

It's always nice to see a familiar British name near the top of the overnight chip listings, and we have just that in Day 1A of Event 34. Sunny Chatha is the man in question. Preliminary reports actually had him at the top, but when all the stacks (of the 1096 survivors) were compared, he lies second to Juan Esirviez from Argentina but ahead of Imran Mukati in third.

There's some well known names giving this a whirl - Phil Hellmuth being the biggest one but there's also Ari Engel, Ben Yu, Dan Shak & Phil Laak.

From the UK, second Brit is Jack Sinclair while others in the upper to mid echelons include Usman Siddique, Timothy Chung, Gasam Alaaldin, Tsz Ho and Matthew Hunt. Barny Boatman, James Rann, Iaron Lightbourne and Ben Dobson have progressively smaller stacks, the last named precariously short.


Event 35 - $10K Dealers Choice 6 Max, Day 1 of 4, 114 or 115 entrants


The WSOP are showing 114 players in one place and 115 in another, either way it's marginally up on last year's 111 with still some late reg to come.

Jeffrey Lisandro has started off the best and holds the Day 1 chip lead with Shaun Deeb only a few chips behind and Phillip **** in third.

Xunen Zheng is the first GB player listed, with Adam Owen, Luke Schwartz and Patrick Leonard all also inside the top 24.

Last year's winner Adam Friedman (remember he beat Stu Rutter heads-up) has made it through Day 1 as have several other bracelet winners including Frank Kassela, Phil Galfont, another Friedman (Prahlad Friedman) and fresh from his 5th bracelet yesterday, Michael Mizrachi.
