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


A Marathon event deserved a marathon heads-up match and that's just what we got. It took over 200 hands, five hours and 12 double-ups for the short stack before Roman Koronev got the better of Jared Kopel to take his first bracelet and $477K.

By way of contrast the FT took just 90 minutes from the start of play to go from 6 players to 2, Dong Sheng Peng (who missed the first 10 hands of the day by arriving late) finishing in third place.


Event 30 - $1000 PLO, Day 4 of 3, 1526 entries


Luis Zedan managed to convert the chip lead at the end of Day 3 into the win, the bracelet and $236K without being headed.

He beat Thida Lin heads-up, her performance being the best by a female player so far this year, with the last British hope Sam Razavi bowing out in third.



Event 32 - Seniors NLH, Day 3 of 4, 5916 entrants


The plan was to play down to 6 on Day 3, but that wasn't possible as after the scheduled 10 levels no fewer than 19 players remained, and without any likelihood of getting to even a single table anytime soon looking slim (more than half the players had over 40BB), the sensible decision to pack up for the night was taken.

None of the 19 have bracelets to their name and it's anyone's guess who will win their first here.

Day 2 chip leader Howard Mash repeated the feat as Day 3 chip leader ahead of French player Jean-René Fontaine and Farhad Jamasi from Ocoee, Florida. I still have nightmares about Ocoee as a bus I was in broke down there back in the last 80s and left a group of us stranded for hours.

The good news is there is a British player among the 19 in Ali Zihni. Looking at his Hendon Mob profile he has been playing for a decade or so with his best result winning the "Mini Main" at the GUKPT Grand Final last November for £18K. Converting that into dollars gives about $23.5K, so he needs to survive just one more elimination to record a career best score.

The small stack of the 19 belongs to Peter Mullin whose stickability has been remarkable. He had less than 1BB on the final hand of the night and managed to hit trip twos (I hate calling them "deuces") and apparently increased the number of all-ins he has survived over the three days to "the mid twenties"! A barnacle to beat all other barnacles!

The eventual winner will take home nearly two thirds of a million dollars.


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


The WSOP have deleted all updates to Day 3 so I can't give you much other than the basic facts here.

The title and the bracelet went to 35 year old Robert Campbell, born in Australia but now resident in Ararat, Turkey. It's his first bracelet on his 7th FT.

David Bach was second, Jared Bleznick 3rd and defending champion Hanh Tran 7th.

Benny Glaser was the last British challenger, falling in 10th spot for a little over $10K.


Event 34 - $1000 Double Stack NLH, 5 Day Event, Day 1B, 6214 entries across the two flights.


1229 players made it through from Day 1B to join the 1111 from Day 1A, with Sean Getzwiller having the biggest stack from 1B.

It's another pleasingly international leader board, with Yasheel Doddanavar (India) 2nd, Andres Jeckeln (Argentina) 3rd and players from Lativa, Taiwan, Switzerland and Hong Kong all in the top 10.

We can't manage a Brit in the top 10, but 14th isn't too shabby, the position being occupied by Guilio Mascolo who cashed in Event 28 a couple of days ago.

Someone who did better than just cash a couple of days ago was Thomas Cazayous, and he invested a little of his winnings here and has managed to take a stack through to day 2 along with 3 former ME champions Jamie Gold, Scotty Nguyen and Chris Ferguson.

A few of the large number of Brits through - Lynne Beaumont, Craig McCorkell, Aaron Woodcock, Kenneth Broad, Paul Sokoloff, Katie Swift, Sam Razavi, Scott Margereson, Luke Schwartz, Paul Jackson and Simon Deadman


Event 35 - $10K Dealers Choice 6 Max, Day 2 of 4, 122 entrants


A few late entrants added to the prize pool, making the first prize worth over $312K, a little up on the figure Adam Friedman took for last year's win.

A back-to-back win is still a possibility, as he's not only among the 11 players who made Day 3, he's the chip leader.

What there isn't is any British players, although we did get three into the 19 who cashed, they all departed post-bubble. First was Luke Schwartz (18th), quickly followed by Xunen Zhang (17th) and a little while later Adam Owen (14th) joined then on the sidelines. All collected $14818.

Plenty of formidable opponents, as you would expect in a $10K mixed-games event including Shaun Deeb, Matt Glantz and Jeffrey Lisandro.


Event 36 - $3K NLH Shootout, Day 1 of 3, 313 entries



The 313 were split between 40 tables, all of which played down to a winner who will progress to Day 2.

Ryan Leng was the first player through after beating Phil Ivey heads-up, and he was joined by a number of other bracelet holders such as Justin Bonomo, Taylor Paur, James Obst and Kristin Bicknell.

Two Brits were successful, Harry Lodge and Ben Farrell. They've guarenteed doubling their $3K stake but to ladder up it will take winning their table as the next second, third and fourth on the day 2 tables all pay the same. The eventual winner will be over $200K richer.

The last 40 will play short-handed poker on Day 2, 10 tables of 4 to come up with a FT of 10.


To start today

Event 37 - $800 NLH Deepstack, 3 Day Event, $750K guaranteed

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


The top two players after Day 3 ended as the top two players after Day 4, as Howard Mash defeated Jean-René Fontaine heads-up to win his first bracelet and $662K.

Playing his first Seniors event (he's not long turned 50), Mash did lose the chip lead he's held since Day 2 briefly on the final day (Jim McNurlan had the lead at the start of the FT), but soon reasserted his position and although the stacks were pretty even for much of the heads-up match, 80 or so hands later Mash had done the job.

Frenchman Fontaine took $409K and McNurlan $303K for third.


Event 34 - $1000 Double Stack NLH, 5 Day Event, Day 3 of 5, 6214 entries


The players from Day 1A merged with those from Day 1B and at the end of Level 21, there were 359 players remaining with Arianna Son having moved into the chip lead. Her 2.3m is about 15% more than her nearest challenger Radoslav Stoyanov with Ignacio Molina a few chips further back.

Jack Sinclair, the 2018 WSOP Europe Main Event winner is one of a number of previous bracelet holders still active is the top Brit with James Millman, Guilio Mascolo, Neil McFayden, Angelo Milioto, Simon Deadman, Philip Ford, Andrew Hawksby and Nikolay Ponomarev the other Brits through to Day 3.

Not too many other recognisable names left in - Faraz Jaka and Marcel Vonk maybe the two best known so I'm reduced to looking for funny names or funny hometowns and I can't see many. Whoops yes I can. Many, Louisiana is the hometown of 169th placed Clay Henry.


Event 35 - $14K Dealers Choice 6 Max, Day 3 of 4, 122 entrants



A quietish day, playing down from 11 to 5 with the most noise about the end of play.

Philip **** was knocked out in 7th and in the next hand Nick Schulman went out too, leaving 5. There was a break soon after, and then discussions ensued about whether to play on or end, as scheduled, when they were down to 6 (or in this case a couple of hands later due to the imminent break). The decision was made to stop unless the 5 players were unanimous to carry on, and they weren't so the chip bags came out leaving Shaun Deeb and Matt Glantz to protest

Anyway, what have the following got in common - Johnny Moss, Doyle Brunson, Stu Ungar, Johnny Chan & Phil Hellmuth? Not just they're all ME winners, but they've won the same tournament two years running. Adam Friedman is still in the running to add his name to that illustrious list as he was second in chips overnight, behind only Deeb.

Glantz is third, Michael McKenna fourth and David Moskowitz is the short stack in an all-American final five.

With Deeb at least wanting to play the $10K Stud Championship on Monday, the dynamic will be interesting as the others might want to slow him up.


Event 36 - $3K NLH Shootout, Day 1 of 3, 313 entries



The winners of the 10 Day 2 tables are all set and will meet to play it out for a bracelet and over $200K, and we have a British challenger who will sit in Seat 1 on the FT in the shape of Ben Farrell.

Andrew Lichtenberger has already finished second to one British Ben this series when losing heads-up to Ben Heath in Event 5, perhaps lightning will strike twice.

He's one of three bracelet winners still left, alongside Alexandru Papazian of Romania and Justin Bonomo (3 bracelets)

Everyone at the FT is guaranteed a minimum of $12937.


Event 37 - $800 NLH Deepstack, Day 1 of 3, $750K guaranteed, 2808 entries



An unusual price point saw a massive entry, with 671 through to Day 2.

With 422 to cash, the plan is to play all the way down to a FT of 6 but I wouldn't be surprised if the number of players left at the end of the day is nearer 20.

The two big named Phils are the main attraction - both Ivey and Hellmuth have enough chips to be going on with, but will have to watch out as blinds are rising every 40 minutes.

Some others in include Elio Fox, Kelly Minkin, Manig Loeser, Ismael Bojang, Kenny Hallaert & Jeremy Ausmus, while the top three are Jose Brito, Danny Ghobrial and Ben Gilbert.

For the UK, we have Miranda at 29th. Miranda who? I have no idea. It might even be a surname, but it's just listed as Miranda.

Joshua Boulton is 44th, Leo Worthington-Leese 49th and Dragos Trofimov 55th. Chris Moorman and our very own Adam Bromley are also still in the tournament. Moorman and Ivey will be sat in adjacent seats for the start of Day 2


Event 38 - $600 WSOP.com Online NLH Knockout Bounty, 1 Day Event, 1224 entries



I mentioned a few days ago that Upeshka De Silva wins bracelets in odd-numbered years. Well he's added 2019 to 2015 & 2017 by winning the online bounty Event 38.

He won just over $98K from the main prize pool, plus $1800 for 18 bounties at $100 a pop, taking his earnings fractionally over the $100K mark for 11 hours work.

David Nodes was the defeated heads-up player with David Fhima continuing a good week or so for France by taking third.


To start today

Event 39 - $1000 Super Seniors NLH, 3 Day Event

Event 40 - $1500 PLO, 3 Day Event

Event 41 - $10K Seven Card Stud, 4 Day Event

Event 34 - $1000 Double Stack NLH, 5 Day Event, Day 4 of 5, 6214 entries


40 players remain in the quest for the $678K first prize and the bracelet, already having ensured a payout of at least $15K.

There's only one previous bracelet winner among the 40, and he is Jack Sinclair, half of a two-pronged British challenge (the other prong being Andrew Hawksby) Neither hold one of the larger stacks in the room, but with 13 & 23BB respectively they've still got some play left in them.

The chip leader is one of an ever increasing number of Chinese players at the WSOP - Zinan Xu, with a reasonable lead over Ida Ashkenazi and Matthew Wantman.

There is also an Irish rep in the last 40 - Patrick Clarke.


Event 35 - $10K Dealers Choice 6 Max, Day 3 of 4, 122 entrants

A historic day for Adam Friedman as he joined the list of notable players I typed up yesterday, winning the same WSOP event in back-to-back years.

Michael McKenna was eliminated in 5th place playing pot-limit 2-7 Triple Draw, followed by David Moskowitz in his game of choice, PLO.

While Matt Glantz sat still as the short stack, Friedman was able to attack Shaun Deeb in NLH and managed to take the lead before Glantz was busted, also in 2-7 Triple Draw.

During heads-up, Deeb snatched the lead a couple of times but never for very long, and while Friedman swapped his choice of games up, Deeb went back to what he knows best, NLH for the last few hands which ironically cost him the tournament.


Event 36 - $3K NLH Shootout, Day 1 of 3, 313 entries



The event that plays like three single table Sit & Gos is done and dusted and the bracelet is on the wrist of first-time winner David Lambard.

The 44-year old, whose father was a poker pro, beat the 9 other survivors including 3 previous braclet holders to win the title and over $200K.

He beat French player Johan Guilbert heads-up, a major hand coming when Lambard ran a bluff with 5-3 with another of those Chinese players, Weiyi Zhang 3rd.

The British challenger on the FT, Ben Farrell, ended up in 6th for $37K.


Event 37 - $800 NLH Deepstack, Day 1 of 3, $750K guaranteed, 2808 entries


As I thought, the likelihood of playing down to just 6 on Day 2 was low, but even I under-estimated the number of players who would be left.

In fact it was 26 who made Day 3 headed by Hamid Feiz, ahead of one of the two previous bracelet winners in the field, Nick Jivkov from Bulgaria and the only British player left, Joshua Boulton.

The other bracelet holder left? Kevin Song. I don't he's related to Stephen Song who won an event a week or so ago!

Still no update on who the mysterious "Miranda" was, but she (I presume it's a she) just missed the top 100, finishing 102nd for $2018.



Event 39 - $1000 Super Seniors NLH, Day 1 of 3, 2650 entries


You've got to be 60 years of age to play the Super Seniors, and there are plenty of eligible players in the card rooms of Vegas this time of year - the 2650 is a record for this event.

The day 1 chip leader is Charles Bailey from Alaska, with 836 others accompanying him through to Day 2 ahead of Ken Gurley and Dennis Owen.

No sign of tikay, perhaps he isn't old enough, but we do have some GB players through led by Tony Bedford, Linda Iwaniak, Michael Davis, Murray Henderson and Mark McCluskey.

Some well known names left in - TJ Cloutier, Barry Greenstein and the two Toms, Franklin & McEvoy.


Event 40 - $1500 PLO, Day 1 of 3, 1216 entries



Exactly 200 remain after Day 1 of Event 40, with an Israeli at the top in the shape of Shahar Levi, with Sajal Gupta and one of the players of the series so far, Keith Lehr in third.

It looks like there is a Brit inside the top 5, but Dimitri Holdeew is an Austrian shown as being resident in Brighton. That means we have to look down to 50th spot for Adam Monaghan, and further down we see Gary Solomons, Barny Boatman and Jan Collado

Matt Glantz jumped into this after finishing 3rd in the Dealers Choice and that looks a good decision so far with him lying 8th overnight, while also in are Erik Seidel, meerkat Alexandr Orlov and Kenny Hallaert, and Pittsburgh Penguins ice hockey player Phil Kessel.


Event 41 - $10K Seven Card Stud, 4 Day Event



Early stages in a star-studded (sorry) field with less than 80 players entered on Day 1 with some late reg still available.

Almost half survive, 36 to be exact led by Scott Siever, with two of 2019's bracelet winners Scott Clements and Greg Mueller close behind and another, Michael Mizrachi in 5th.

No prizes for guessing the only Brit to make Day 2, Benny Glaser very rarely gets knocked out early in these $10K events, but he's on fumes after Day 1, with only about 10% of the stack of the leader.


To start today

Event 42 - $600 Mixed NLH/PLO deepstack, 8-max, 2 Day Event, $500K Guaranteed prize pool

Event 43 - $2500 Mixed Big Bet, 3 Day Event

So at the weekend we deceided it’s a pool day
What’s a pool day in Vegas ?
A quiet day sat there sipping cocktails n listening to mellow magic tunes ?
Nope if you’re not by the pool before 0915 am all of the beds are gone
At the nugget the pool is surrounded by people sitting on the edge or standing drinking buckets of beer ,not getting out to toilet so you can only presume they all pee in the pool unless they’ve got bladders like flood storage tankers .

So now it’s $10 admission fee to the downtown grand- pools warm like piss - which is 80% of its active ingredients
There’s almost no shade there too
a very loud playing rap music - no mellow magic
We look at binions on the 25 th floor ,a tiny pool , glass screening prevents much breeze circulating
So we try the plaza pool on the 5 th floor
Success it’s not mobbed
There’s sunbeds
Pools warmish
But there’s the nigga rap music blasting out
Oh well gg mellow magic
So we get sunbeds I’m partially in the shade ,Denise’s is in the sun perfect
We are the only people at the pool not smoking weed too
A good day is had by all
A cabana is booked for weds $50 plus $100 spend is required
Anybody around pop up 5 th floor south tower.

Pizza slice on the way out
Goodfellas pinball
$80 win on slots
$3 coronas in the Fremont casino bar know $7 in the nugget a binions burger for dinner and it’s a good day

Poker’s on pause and we had a good weekend

I try n eat healthily - says the fat bloke currently scoffing Morrison’s shortbread biscuits at 9 am
So I also bought some dates ,prunes and small bags of cranberries n raisins ,of which I’ve eaten a few in the last few days - I’m still not healthy or thin ?
Fk knows why ?
With the resulting effects on my bowels that heavy doses of fruit has .
The Rio is the nut worst place to get a mild dose of the shits / griping stomach pains as it’s a 200 yard walk with bum cheeks clenched to discover a 60 person queue at the bog
So my advice ?
Lay off the fruit 😂😂😂💩💩💩

No mate he had me covered - just
I was pretty disappointed as I’d played well and fancied myself to go deeper than that
A nights sleep and it’s history now

When I last visited The Nugget which I have always been a big fan of for overall value for money there was no resort-fee.

I never used the pool despite admiring the sharks in the adjoining tanks but are you saying that the resort-fee does not cover using the pool?
