Michael Addamo scooped the Super High Roller Bowl VI title on Wednesday for $3.4 million, his third consecutive high roller tournament win. In the process, he became Australia’s all-time winningest live tournament player.

Addamo, now with $13.5 million, surpassed 2005 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Hachem, who has $12.7 million in cashes. Kahle Burns drops to third place in Australian history at $10.7 million.

Month to Remember

It’s been a memorable month for the SHRB champion. He started things off with a win in Poker Masters Event #11: $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em, for $680,000. In the ensuing Poker Masters tournament — Event #12: $100,000 No-Limit Hold’em — he again took it down, this one for $1,160,000, along with the Purple Jacket, which is awarded to the overall series champion.

The Australian poker pro looked to make it three straight in the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas. On Day 1, he busted out to a strong start thanks in large part to a massive pot he won against Daniel Negreanu in Level 1.

In that hand against Negreanu, he got paid off with the nut straight when he over-bet the river. Interestingly enough, he used the same strategy to finish off Justin Bonomo heads-up for the title on the very last hand of the tournament.

Alex Foxen’s Luck Runs Out

Heading into the final day, Addamo held a massive chip lead over his four opponents. The pressure was on given that 40% of the remaining players on Wednesday would go home down their $300,000 buy-in, and the minimum cash was just north of $1 million.

Alex Foxen entered play fourth in chips and was looking to rebound from a disappointing Day 2 finish. The former college football athlete held a huge chip lead throughout much of Day 2, but lost back more than half his stack before Tuesday’s session concluded. On Day 3, he couldn’t get anything going and was eliminated in fifth place out of 21, two spots shy of the money.

Unlike Foxen, Chris Brewer had been nursing a small stack throughout most of the final two days. He never could quite grind his way back into contention. With Bonomo holding a big stack on the button, he jammed {10-Hearts}{4-Hearts} with the two small stacks — Brewer and Sean Winter — in the blinds.

The blind stealing attempt didn’t work because Brewer woke up with {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades} and promptly made the call. But he would end up bubbling when the board ran out {q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{j-Spades}{k-Hearts}, giving Bonomo a winning flush. That set up three-handed play and the pressure of the money bubble was no longer a factor. The following is a look at the chip counts when three-handed play began:

Place Player Stack
1st Michael Addamo 3,055,000
2nd Justin Bonomo 2,740,000
3rd Sean Winter 505,000

Addamo Goes Wire-to-Wire

Winter was fortunate to have escaped the bubble, but he wasn’t able to hold on much longer, although he did pick up a few chips before his final hand. In that hand, Addamo raised the 30,000 big blind to 65,000 on the button with {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and then called an all-in three-bet from Winter ({10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}) for 815,000 total.

The board came out {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}{5-Spades}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs}, giving Addamo the nut straight and a huge chip lead over Bonomo as heads-up play was about to begin. Winter was out in third place and received $1,008,000 for his efforts.

Bonomo, who made his return to live tournament poker for the first time in nearly two years, made a few plays during heads-up play. He grinded for over an hour, but couldn’t ever catch up, and lost a rough hand to end the tournament.

From the button, Bonomo opened to 80,000 with {q-Spades}{10-Spades} and his heads-up opponent called the raise with {7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. The flop came out {4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and both players checked. When the {q-Diamonds} turned over on the turn, Bonomo hit top pair but was drawing dead. Addamo, who used the over-bet to his advantage multiple times during the tournament, bet 250,000 into a pot of 190,000.

Bonomo, holding top pair, made the call only to see, as PokerGO commentator Nick Schulman said, “the worst card in the world” on the river. That card was the {10-Clubs}.

Addamo again over-bet the pot, this time putting his opponent all-in for just over 2 million chips. Bonomo used a multitude of time extension chips before deciding that top two-pair was just too strong heads-up to fold. He made the call and found out the bad news. As a consolation prize, he received $1,890,000, and the winner took home $3,402,000. Final table results were as follows:

Place Player Stack
1st Michael Addamo $3,402,000
2nd Justin Bonomo $1,890,000
3rd Sean Winter $1,008,000
4th Chris Brewer $0
5th Alex Foxen $0

Find Out How Daniel Negreanu Busted Level 1 of $300k Buy-In SHRB

Daniel Negreanu lost his entire stack to Michael Addamo during Level 1 of the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl Monday afternoon. Was his play justified, or should he have folded his hand on the river? Take a look at the following hand and then vote in the poll to have your voice heard.

The sixth SHRB from Las Vegas, hosted at the PokerGO Studio, kicked off Monday with 19 players. Each player began with 300,000 chips and the blinds started off at 500/1,000, giving everyone 300 big blinds right off the bat. Play is scheduled to run until Wednesday, so the tournament is a bit of a grind.

The Hand and a Poll (VOTE!)

During Level 1, Negreanu found himself in a difficult situation. Action folded around to the GGPoker ambassador on the button, who went for a raise to 2,500 with {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. Addamo, who won the Poker Masters Purple Jacket and $100,000 Main Event last week, came along for the ride with {8-Spades}{6-Clubs} in the big blind.

Both players watched the flop come out {5-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}, giving Addamo the stone-cold nuts. He checked it back to his opponent who also checked back. The turn was a brutal card for Negreanu as it was the {a-Spades}, giving him top-top while drawing dead. Again, Addamo checked it over to the button, and Negreanu fired out 3,500.

Addamo was done slow playing and was ready to exert maximum value out of his nut-straight. So, he bumped it up big to 36,000 and his opponent made the call. The {5-Hearts} on the river paired the board, but that didn’t stop the 2021 Purple Jacket winner from ripping it all-in for Negreanu’s 215,000-chip effective stack.

Facing a difficult decision for his tournament life, Negreanu used multiple time extension chips before he decided on a call. And just like that, he was out $300,000 before the end of the first level. Addamo nearly doubled up to just over 600,000 chips, giving him more than 600 big blinds.

Following his bust out hand, Negreanu took to Twitter to briefly describe the situation, although he didn’t provide details on his decision to call off his stack on the river.

PACOOP Final Hand

It took just under seven hours for a field of 335 entries to become one in the 2021 PACOOP Event #50: $250 NLHE Progressive KO Thursday Thrill SE Championship Trophy Event, $55K GTD, and when the dust settled, “MasterOf0ne” took home the lion’s share of the $78,055 prizepool.

Pot-Limit? How New Vegas Marijuana Laws Might Affect WSOP 2021

Las Vegas marijuana

Attention all ‘high’ rollers!

This year’s World Series of Poker may have its fair share of changes, including both vaccine and mask mandates, but another huge change is coming to the city this fall.

From October, new marijuana legislation will come into effect allowing the recreational use of cannabis in new consumption lounges. These lounges were given the green light back in June, and will go into effect from October 1.

Nevada Marijuana Law

Cannabis became legal for recreational use in January 2017, with licensed sales beginning later that year. Anyone over the age of 21 may buy one ounce of marijuana or 3.5 grams of concentrate at one time, the same amount an individual is legally allowed to possess at any given time, at state-licensed dispensaries.

However, with marijuana illegal under federal law, it wasn’t possible to consume marijuana products in public or in any of the city’s hotels.

However, that all changed earlier this year after Governor Steve Sisolak signed a bill allowing the operation of consumption lounges. These lounges will allow adults to purchase and consume cannabis products.

“Lounges create a space where cannabis products can be consumed legally,” said Layke Martin, executive director of the Nevada Dispensary Association. “We have many retailers that have been wanting to add lounges to their properties for a while.”

These alcohol-free venues will be able to obtain one of two types of marijuana business license, one which allows existing retail shops to add consumption lounges to the same property, and a second where lounges can be created for single-use products.

How WSOP 2021 May Be Affected

There is a certain overlap between poker players and weed usage, which was evident by the excitement from players such as Josh Arieh and Bryan Micon when recreational marijuana was legalized in Nevada.

However, before players heading to this year’s World Series of Poker get excited about lighting up at the Rio, the new law states that these cannabis consumption lounges must not be in or within 1,500 feet of a casino.

Cannabis products are also not permitted inside casinos and hotels, nor are they allowed to be consumed in hotel rooms.

Sheldon Adelson and Marijuana

Sheldon Adelson

Throughout his life, the late casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson donated millions of dollars trying to stop marijuana legalization. According to Forbes, Adelson spent nearly $6.4 million in 2016 trying to stop legalization in Massachusetts, Arizona, Florida and Nevada.

His attempts to curtail marijuana legislation had been dubbed a “passion project” by Las Vegas Sands Senior Vice President Andy Abboud.

The Washington Post reported that Adelson’s own son died from a drug overdose in 2005, with opioid treatment centres in both Israel and Las Vegas established by his charitable foundation.

However, there is no suggestion that the death of Adelson in January 2021 had anything to do with the passing of this new bill.

Sewnig Claims Second NJCOOP Sunday Title

Only two NJCOOP events took place on Monday including Event #37: $300 NLHE [4-Max], $22.5K GTD, which drew a 95-entry field and saw well-known Garden State grinder Dan “monkeyman067” Sewnig claim the title for $6,212.

It was his second win of the series after beating a 298-entry field to win Event #4: $100 NLHE [8-Max, Big Kickoff Trophy Event], $25K GTD for $5,187.

Sewnig learned poker at 11 years old when his cousin taught him the rules to Texas hold’em. In 2003 when Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker, Sewnig was in seventh grade and playing $5 SNGs with his friends.

“I’ll always remember our friend’s mom asked us who we thought was going to win. There were about 50 players left in the TV coverage and Ivey and Farha were the popular answers. I said, ‘I don’t know, I’ve got a good feeling about that guy Moneymaker.’ She gave me a look at the time that I thought meant she thought I was stupid. I had no idea at the time that these shows were prerecorded and she already knew that he had gone on to win!”

Lena Evans

Former California First Lady Maria Shriver will host a charity poker tournament October 1 at Jamul Casino in San Diego with a 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event seat up for grabs. She’ll be joined by Poker League of Nations founder Lena Evans and poker great Maria Ho in helping to raise money for the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement (WAM).

Shriver, the founder of the charity, isn’t a poker player so she’ll stick to hosting duties for this event. Previously married to iconic actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the philanthropist has become one of today’s most internationally recognized Alzheimer’s advocates. The mission of raising money for Alzheimer’s research is near and dear to her heart. Her father, Sargent Shriver, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, a disease that still has no cure, in 2003.

In a few weeks, she’ll join forces with the poker community to raise money for a great cause. Actually, two great causes. One being, and this is the main purpose of the evening, to benefit Shriver’s charity. The other to send someone to Las Vegas to compete in the prestigious WSOP Main Event.

Details on the Charity Poker Tournament

maria shriver charity poker

Jamul Casino, site of the RunGood Poker Series, will play host to the October 1 charity poker tournament. The buy-in for the event is $250 for those who register early online and $280 at the casino.

The winner receives a seat into the WSOP Main Event, which begins November 4, but there are some other valuable prizes up for grabs. Each final table participant will take home some Suited Poker Gear merchandise. Other prizes include a one-week stay in a beautiful Costa Rica home and private poker lessons from Phil Hellmuth, Chris Moneymaker, Antonio Esfandiari, Maria Ho, and Greg Raymer.

“A close relative of mine had Alzheimer’s for 14 years, and it was tough for all concerned,” Hellmuth told PokerNews. “It’s my pleasure to be a part of raising money to help eradicate this nasty disease. From a science perspective: it seems like we may be able to eradicate more diseases than anyone in my generation could have imagined. We just need money, we have the moxie!”

Phil Hellmuth
Phil Hellmuth will support the event.

Raymer added: “While it is a shame I can’t be there in person, I am thrilled to still be able to support this great event. Hope all of you who can make it do so. It will be a blast and support a great cause.”

The tournament kicks off at 6 p.m. and will conclude the same evening. For those who are unable to attend but still want to help raise money for the WAM foundation, anyone can enter a $100 buy-in 50/50 raffle from anywhere in the world. All proceeds from the event will go toward WAM’s programs and research for Alzheimer’s prevention and education.

“I jumped at the opportunity to be part of this event and support such a worthwhile cause,” Ho told PokerNews. “WAM is an organization that has focused its efforts on researching why this terrible disease affects women more than men and helps provide support in all areas for those affected. I hope everyone will join the fight and donate!”

Daniel Negreanu’s “Slump” Officially Over, Poker HOF’er Wins Poker Masters $10K NLH

daniel-negreanus-slump-officially-over-poker-hofer-wins-poker-masters-10k-nlh-1

Jackpot hari ini Result Sidney 2020 – 2021.

daniel negreanu poker masters

Daniel Negreanu went eight years without winning a live poker tournament, a stat that is still hard to believe. After Sunday’s win in Poker Masters Event #5: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $178,200, he now has two victories since June. And he just might have an old rival — Doug Polk — to thank for the recent success.

On June 11, Polk posted a video on his YouTube channel about the length of time it had been since Negreanu won a poker tournament. One month later, “Kid Poker” scooped a $50,000 buy-in PokerGO Cup event for $700,000 and would eventually be crowned the overall series champion.

Fast forward exactly two months later to Sunday afternoon at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, and the GGPoker ambassador is back in the winner’s circle. Negreanu beat out a field of 66 entrants to win his first ever Poker Masters event.

He earned 179 points for his second cash of the high roller series, giving him 281 overall, putting him atop the leaderboard in the race for the Purple Jacket. But there are still seven events remaining, so it’s still way too early for his fans to get too excited.

Polk’s video likely had no impact on Negreanu finally getting over the hump to win a couple of tournaments. But it’s still an odd coincidence either way.

2021 Poker Masters Event #5 Final Table Results

Place Player County Points Prize
1st Daniel Negreanu Canada 181 $178,200
2nd Nick Petrangelo United States 132 $133,000

4th Jake Daniels United States 66 $69,000
5th Jeffrey Trudeau United States 53 $52,800

Rough Hand Ends Petrangelo’s Run

During heads up play, with both players relatively close in chips — Negreanu slightly out in front — one pseudo-cooler hand propelled the Poker Hall of Famer to victory.

Nick Petrangelo raised on the button to 180,000 with {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and his opponent three-bet to 600,000 with {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} and the raise was called. The flop came out {q-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{j-Hearts} and Negreanu wasn’t about to play small ball. He bet out 725,000 and got a call. The turn was the {4-Hearts} and both players interestingly checked.

On the river, which was the {4-Spades}, Negreanu went big, betting out 1.8 million. Petrangelo made the call to find out the bad news and admitted the check on the turn was a tricky but strong play by his opponent. The hand left him with just 760,000, less than 10 big blinds.

Moments later, “DNegs” picked up {a-Spades}{a-Clubs} on the button and limped. Petrangelo took the bait and shoved all-in with {q-Spades}{10-Spades}. The board came out clean for Negreanu — {4-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{k-Clubs} — and that was all she wrote.

Negreanu, the champion, took home $178,200 for his impressive performance and the runner-up received $133,000. The PokerGO Studio also played host to Day 1 (of two) of Event #6: 10,000 8-Game. Registration was still open at the time of publishing but 30 players had entered.

Remember, Poker Masters will air daily through September 19, but is only available to PokerGO subscribers.

Straight Flush on the River Keys Adam Hendrix to $10K PLO Poker Masters Title

Adam Hendrix won Poker Masters Event #3: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha for $186,300, beating out a field of 69 entrants. But he momentarily thought he lost a crucial all-in during heads-up play against Matthew Wantman before claiming victory.

The 2021 Poker Masters has now crowned three of 12 champions. Shannon Shorr won a blind all-in pot to ship the first title of the series on Wednesday. Sean Perry celebrated Rosh Hashana with a big win the following day.

No-limit hold’em was the game played during the first two tournaments at the Poker Masters. On Friday, the focus shifted over to, as Joey Ingram likes to say, the “great game of pot-limit Omaha.” Six players returned from Thursday’s Day 1 session to compete at the final table. Here’s a look at how it played out along with the series points accumulated:

6th Chris Brewer United States 41 $41,400

Hand of the Series?

Pot-limit Omaha, given that players are dealt two extra hole cards, brings out more monster hands than no-limit hold’em. But that doesn’t take away from the wildness of an all-in river card during heads-up play on Friday.

The scenario was this: Wantman had 5,475,000 in chips when the hand began and Hendrix had 3,150,000. The board ran out to the turn reading {10-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{j-Spades}. Both players had gotten all the money in the pot with the tournament on the line for Hendrix. The hands:

Wantman: {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Hendrix: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

Both were chasing a flush, Wantman had two pair and also a gut shot straight draw to go with it (although his straight draw couldn’t win). The river turned over the {9-Hearts}, giving Wantman the ace-high flush. He briefly began celebrating while Hendrix dropped his head in disappointment. And then the both players realized that river card actually gave Hendrix a straight flush and he doubled into a huge chip lead.

Wantman would get some chips back over the next 15 minutes but could never catch back up. Hendrix, who surpassed the $2 million mark in live tournament cashes, earned $186,300 and his first Poker Masters title. The runner-up received $138,000 and now has $2.7 million in cashes during his career.

Event #4: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em also kicked off at the PokerGO Studio on Friday with 73 entrants. When Day 1 play concluded, only six remained with Brekstyn Schutten holding the chip lead. The final table on the PokerGO app will begin at 4 p.m. ET. Each remaining player is guaranteed at least $43,800 and the winner will take home $189,800.
