Phil Hellmuth Challenges Tom Dwan to High Stakes Duel III Rematch

Info seputar HK Prize 2020 – 2021.

tom dwan phil hellmuth

More than a week after losing in Round 2 of PokerGO’s “High Stakes Duel III,” Phil Hellmuth told Tom Dwan he wants a rematch. The “Poker Brat” will pay $200,000 to enter Round 3, doubling the prize pool to $400,000.

The date for the rematch hasn’t been set but will likely occur prior to the start of the 52nd annual World Series of Poker, which begins September 30 at the Rio in Las Vegas.

Unchartered Territory

For the first time in his now nine matches on “High Stakes Duel,” Hellmuth will enter play with a loss under his belt. He won three against Antonio Esfandiari in 2020, then three more versus Daniel Negreanu earlier this year, one against Nick Wright in July, and then lost for the first time against Dwan last week.

In the first round of the current series of games, Hellmuth and Wright both paid $50,000 to enter, creating a $100,000 prize pool of which the 15-time WSOP bracelet winner scooped. Wright declined a rematch, opening the door for Dwan to enter in Round 2, and “durrrr” was required to contribute $100,000 to the prize pool to get in the game. He won the match, which means Hellmuth is now on the hook to double the prize pool — $200,000 — to $400,000 for Round 3.

The match, as always, will take place at the PokerGO Studio and air exclusively on the PokerGO app. Should Dwan win the rematch, there’s a strong possibility that will be the end of Hellmuth’s presence on the show. With the WSOP just around the corner, his focus will shift in that direction, potentially leaving the seat open for Phil Ivey or another big name poker star to step in and battle against Dwan. Of course, if Hellmuth wins Round 3, all bets are off on what will transpire in Round 4, if there is a fourth round.

Poker Masters 2021 Preview: Can Anyone Catch Up to Ali Imsirovic in PokerGO Tour Standings?

Promo menarik pada undian Data Sidney 2020 – 2021.

ali imsirovic poker masters

Since February, Ali Imsirovic has dominated the PokerGO Tour standings. At the upcoming Poker Masters series, held at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas September 7-19, he’ll have an opportunity to distance himself from the competition even further. Or, another player — perhaps Sean Perry or Sam Soverel — will make the race more interesting.

In 2019, Soverel won the Purple Jacket, awarded to the overall series winner. So, it’s certainly not out of the question for him to dominate the series. At present, Imsirovic holds asizable lead in the PokerGO Tour standings with 3,032 points, thanks in large part to his 10 high roller titles in 2021. He’s followed by Perry (2,021), Soverel (1,646), PokerGO founder Cary Katz (1,630), Sean Winter (1,614), and then David Peters in sixth place (1,392).

It wouldn’t be impossible for Jake Schindler (1,123), Alex Foxen (1,023) or Stephen Chidwick (890), three of the best tournament pros in the world, to get back in the race. But we’re already into September, which means it’s likely now or never for them.

Poker Masters Presents Opportunity

With Wednesday’s conclusion of the Super High Roller Bowl Europe series, which we live reported at PokerNews, the high roller scene now shifts back to the United States for the Poker Masters, a 12-event series in Las Vegas beginning September 7.

The schedule features nine no-limit hold’em tournaments, an 8-game mixed event, and two pot-limit Omaha tournaments. Buy ins for the series start out at $10,000 for the first seven events, then jump to $25,000 for the next three, and then the series concludes with a $50,000 NLH tournament September 17 and then a $100,000 NLH finale the following day.

Date Event # Tournament Starting Stack Re-Entry
September 7 1 $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 125,000 Double
September 8 2 $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 125,000 Double
September 9 3 $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 125,000 Double
September 10 4 $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 125,000 Double
September 11 5 $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 125,000 Double
September 12 6 $10,000 8-Game 125,000 Double
September 13 7 $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 125,000 Double
September 14 8 $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em 125,000 Double
September 15 9 $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 125,000 Double
September 16 10 $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em 125,000 Double
September 17 11 $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em 150,000 Double
September 18 12 $100,000 No-Limit Hold’em 200,000 Single

Each tournament is scheduled for two days, with the Day 2 final tables to air on the PokerGO app.

For Imsirovic, that’s 12 opportunities to increase his lead in the PokerGO Tour standings. And for the aforementioned players chasing the Bosnian poker star, the series presents plenty of chances to get back into the race. But if things go as well for Imsirovic as they did in 2018 when he won the Purple Jacket, he might be a shoe in to become the first ever PokerGO Tour champion.

PokerStars COOP Set to hit Pennsylvania, New Jersey & Michigan Sept. 10-27

Jackpot hari ini Result Sidney 2020 – 2021.

2021 COOP

The prestigious PokerStars Championship of Online Poker (COOP) returns to US shores in September, with players in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey enjoying opportunities at COOP glory.

All three PokerStars US-facing sites offer state-specific versions of the COOP, with each running concurrently September 10-27. While the World Championship of Online Poker currently runs on the PokerStars international platform, US players can look forward to their own piece of the COOP experience.

Both PokerStars PA and PokerStars MI offer the biggest COOP prize pool in the history of their states during the upcoming series.

The COOP is Back on PokerStars US Sites

The Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker (PACOOP) guarantees $2 million across 69 events on PokerStars PA. The two-day PACOOP Main Event runs Sept. 26-27, with a $300 buy-in and $200,000 in guaranteed prize money on the line.

The last time the COOP came around on PokerStars PA, the Main Event prize pool went well past the $200,000 mark.

The 2021 PASCOOP (Pennsylvania Spring Championship of Online Poker) Main Event ran in May, with the final prize pool ending up at $284,200. The championship went to “kingboss93,” who took home a $46,410 payday.

The 2021 Michigan Championship of Online Poker (MICOOP) offers 68 events, with a combined guarantee of $1.5 million. The upcoming series marks the second time the MICOOP has run on PokerStars MI, which launched in January 2021.

The $300 MICOOP Main Event guarantees $150,000 and runs Sept. 26-27. In May, the 2021 MISCOOP Main Event reached a $243,880 prize pool, and “Stozypokes” came away with the win and a $41,074 prize.

New Jersey poker players are well familiar with the COOP series, which returns to PokerStars NJ with a schedule of 60 events. The guarantees add up to $1 million for the 2021 NJCOOP, including the $300 buy-in, $100,000 guaranteed Main Event Sept. 26-27.

PokerNews will provide live reporting coverage on selected events from all three US COOP series. The COOP festival in each state can only be played from within their respective state, and will not run as interstate online events.

COOP Trophies, Satellites, and Freerolls

Each COOP series will award seven trophies, for the Main Event and six other selected tournaments. Across the three states, 21 winners will earn a COOP trophy.

Tournament buy-ins for each COOP series begin as low as $10. Satellites qualifiers into COOP tournament also run throughout each series.

Main Event tickets are on the line in $3 Spin & Go’s, which run up until the start of the Main Event on Sept. 26. ‘

Sept. 26 also sees Depositor Freeroll’s at all three PokerStars US sites, with all players that deposit at least $30 using a state-specific promo code (PACOOP, MICOOP, or NJCOOP) granted entry. The top 50 finishers in each depositor freeroll win a $300 ticket to their respective Main Event.

All players eliminated short of the money ladder in any COOP event also get entry to a Second Chance Freeroll the following day. The Second Chance Freerolls will award $5,000 in COOP tickets in each state’s series.

Which High-Stakes Poker Player Bought a Digital NFT Rock for $400k?

Dapatkan promo member baru Pengeluaran SGP 2020 – 2021.

digital rock nfl

One wealthy poker player bought a digital picture of a rock for over $400,000. That’s no joke, nor is it an exaggeration, but there’s a logical reason behind the unusual purchase.

The individual we’re talking about is Mike “Timex” McDonald, the once dominant high-stakes poker pro turned successful investor. And if you think “Timex” would just dump 40 stacks of high society on something useless, you haven’t followed his career.

NFT’s can be anything digital technically (rock cliparts, digital sports videos, you name it). The “non-fungible” part means it’s unique and can’t be replaced with something else. Most NFT’s are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Much of the excitement surrounding NFT’s centers around using the technology to sell digital art.

Learn more about NFTs in our WPT article here!

He Bought What?

McDonald paid 125 Ethereum for what’s called a digital rock on August 20, the equivalent of just over $410,000 — at the time, one Ethereum ran for about $3,286. More specifically, he bought an EtherRock, a non-fungible token (NFT) that tokenizes cliparts of pet rocks. In layman’s terms, he bought a picture of a rock that looks like it was drawn using Microsoft Clipart on a 1990s PC, as you can see below.

But there’s more than meets the eye to this story. That digital rock he snagged and now owns has legitimate value. In fact, one buyer recently purchased an EtherRock for $1.3 million. Justin Sun, a crypto investor with over 3 million Twitter followers, spent $500,000 on one of these JPEG files and proudly displayed his six-figure purchase on social media.

Phil Ivey released his own NFTs earlier this summer.

Doug Polk Chimes In, Timex Discloses Investment Plan

McDonald isn’t the only high-stakes pro who sees the investment upside in EtherRocks. Doug Polk, an avid cryptocurrency enthusiast, understands the value.

“I think long term i really like punks as an investment,” the Upswing Poker founder told PokerNews. “They have a great culture of people who I don’t think are likely to sell them and have really managed to make it into to mainstream. Most of the people who own punks are just not going to need to ever sell them.”

“Punks,” or “CryptoPunks,” which Polk referred to, are unique collectible characters with proof of ownership stored on the Ethereum blockchain. EtherRocks are a form of punks, and as the popular YouTuber explains, “there are only 100 and they are one of the first NFT’s.”

“I think it’s at least a reasonable play but will have very high volatility,” Polk continued.

The value, or at least potential upside, in CryptoPunks is that the supply is low. As Polk explained, there aren’t many EtherRocks in existence. Assuming demand grows over time, “Timex” could be sitting on a goldmine down the road. And he doesn’t plan to turn his $400,000 investment into a quick flip.

“I’m pretty sure I could sell this rock for 1000 eth within 24 hours if I wanted to (which I don’t). Lets say someone had offered me 5000 eth for the rock -> am I still selling a large premium? How do you determine what a premium is?” McDonald tweeted.

“I just don’t like pump and dumps and try to own things I can close my eyes and be happy I still own in 10 years. I doubt any individual would pay 1% of the peak market cap NFD reached to buy as a long term hold,” the Canadian poker player also tweeted.

Find Out How Maria Ho Fared w/ Pocket Aces on Poker After Dark’s “Feeding Franzi” Part 2

Bonus harian di Keluaran SDY 2020 – 2021.

Maria Ho

On Monday night, PokerGO aired the latest episode of “Poker After Dark” Season 13, which was Part 2 of “Feeding Franzi.”

The seven-handed game, which was a continuation of last week’s episode, was $50/$100 no-limit hold’em with a $100 big blind ante. The minimum buy-in was $10,000 with no max.

Nick Wright, the host of FS1’s “First Things First”, recently lost his High Stakes Duel III match to Phil Hellmuth, but returned here for his PAD debut. He was joined by Eli Elezra, Maria Ho, poker couple Joelle Parenteau and Daniel Weinand, Hish Salama, and the man for which the episode was named Zach Franzi.

If you recall from our last recap, Franzi was on a bit of a heater while both Elezra and Wright were struggling to get anything going.

Here’s a look at the stack sizes shortly into the episode:

Player Counts
Nick Franzi $56,675
Eli Elezra $30,600
Hish Salama $26,375
Nick Wright $19,100
Maria Ho $18,625
Daniel Weinand $15,200
Joelle Parenteau $3,875

Below is a look at five of either the biggest or most interesting hands from this week’s episode.

Get to Know Joelle Parenteau

Joelle Parenteau
Joelle Parenteau

After Elezra raised to $300 with the {k-Spades}{q-Hearts} and Wright called with the {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, the short-stacked Parenteau looked down at the {a-Spades}{a-Hearts} in the small blind and three-bet to $1,200. Both Elezra and Wright call and it was three-way action to a flop of {4-Clubs}{5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}.

Parenteau was first to act and opted to bet all in for her last $2,675, which inspired a quick fold from Elezra. Wright double-checked his cards and then followed suit. With that, Parenteau claimed the $6,475 pot.

For those that aren’t familiar with Parenteau, she is a poker player and restaurant owner who operates “Wolf Down” locations in Ottawa and Las Vegas. She is also engaged to Daniel Weinand, who was also in the game.

Ho Shows the Bullets

Ho raised to $300 with the {a-Spades}{a-Clubs} and was called by Wright’s {q-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Parenteau’s {q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. Weinand then three-bet to $1,600 from the small blind with the {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}, Ho four-bet to $4,000, and both Wright and Parenteau got out of the way.

Weinand didn’t take too long before ditching his ace-queen and giving the $6,400 pot to Ho.

“Show it, show it one time,” Salama encouraged. Ho obliged and tabled here pocket rockets.

Weinand raised to $300 from the hijack with the {a-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Elezra called next to act holding the {j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Ho then looked down at the {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs} on the button and three-bet to $1,200. Franzi came along from the big blind with the {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}, Weinand folded, and Elezra called to make it three-way action to a flop of {7-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

Two checks saw Ho continue for $1,600, Franzi called with his pair, and Elezra opted to do the same with his gutshot straight draw. The {q-Clubs} turn saw Franzi check for the second time and Elezra, who improved to an open-ended straight draw, checked as well.

Ho kept the pressure on with a bet of $5,500, which left her $9,500 behind. That was enough to get both Franzi and Elezra to fold, giving Ho the $14,350 pot.

Wright vs. Weinand

Daniel Weinand
Daniel Weinand

Wright looked down at the {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} and raised to $400, which Weinand called from the button with the {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. The rest of the players folded and it was heads-up action to the {6-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs} flop.

Wright continued for $700 and Weinand raised to $2,300 with bottom pair. Wright called and the dealer burned and turned the {10-Hearts}. Wright checked, Weinanrd did the same, and the {7-Spades} double paired the board on the river.

Wright paused for a few beats before betting $1,200, but Weinand didn’t pay it off. He folded and Wright won the $6,850 pot.

Weinand Sets Up Elezra

Daniel Weinand vs, Eli Elezra
Daniel Weinand vs, Eli Elezra

After Ho straddled to $200, action folded to Weinand who made it $700 to go holding the {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} in the small blind. Elezra called from the big with the {a-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, Ho put in an additional $500 with the {6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, and the trio saw a flop of {8-Spades}{5-Clubs}{a-Hearts}.

Weinand, who flopped a set, led out for $800 and Elezra immediately raised him to $1,700 with top pair. Ho got out of the way and Weinand just called to see the {9-Hearts} turn.

Weinand coyly checked and Elezra didn’t fall for it as he checked back. Unfortunately for him, the {a-Diamonds} spiked on the river to give him trips while Weinand filled up.

Weinand came out with a bet of $5,000, which was almost the size of the pot. Elezra thought long and hard before laying it down. Weinand, who claimed the $10,600 pot, then showed Elezra that he had the goods.

Here’s how the stacks sat at the end of the episode:

Player Prize
Zach Franzi $54,950
Hish Salama $28,075
Maria Ho $21,075
Nick Wright $20,450
Eli Elezra $20,425
Daniel Weinand $16,650
Joelle Parenteau $8,825

Kristen Bicknell, Partypoker Part Ways: ‘It’s Been a Great Four Years’

Bonus harian di Keluaran SGP 2020 – 2021.

Kristen Bicknell

In a surprising move, Kristen Bicknell is leaving partypoker as an ambassador, the poker site she’s represented the past four years.

The Canadian poker star announced the decision on Twitter but didn’t give details on why she’s moving on.

Bicknell praised her now former employer, stating that it’s “been a great 4 years” working with partypoker. She continued by saying that despite stepping away from her ambassadorship role with a specific poker site, she will continue to “serve as a model for other women to play this great game.”

Bicknell, who recently got engaged to long-time boyfriend and fellow poker pro Alex Foxen, will certainly have many sponsorship opportunities should she choose to go down that route.

Impressive Poker Career

The split appears to be mutual as both sides praised each other on Twitter. The partypoker social media staff sent out a thank you to the poker pro who worked hard to represent the site for four years.

“A big thank you from everyone at partypoker for your contribution over the last few years as a partypoker Ambassador. We wish you all the best for the future!” a tweet from @partypoker read.

Bicknell is now a free-agent in the poker sponsorship game, although she hasn’t publicly said she’ll seek out a new poker site to represent in the future. If another site signs her, they’ll be getting the three-time defending Global Poker Index Female Player of the Year recipient and a three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner. The former partypoker ambassador has over $5 million in live tournament cashes, and many consider her to be the best female poker player in the world today, and possibly ever.

Last summer, she earned that third bracelet by winning GGPoker’s Online Bracelet Series Event #44, $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed, beating out 892 entrants for $356,412. Her first two titles came in live events at the WSOP in Las Vegas.

2021 WSOP: Former Champ Chris Moneymaker Set to Miss This Year’s WSOP

Info seputar HK Prize 2020 – 2021.

Chris Moneymaker 2021 WSOP

The 2003 WSOP Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker has announced that he will not be attending the 2021 World Series of Poker.

In a tweet, the Poker Hall of Famer stated as one of his reasons that he did not want to bring the virus home, with his nine-year-old child unable to be vaccinated.

Many poker players and fans were quick to commiserate, including three-time WSOP bracelet winner David Bach.

Moneymaker Explains All

Pokernews reached out to the former Main Event champion to ask him about how he came to his decision, one that he admits he hated to make.

“I decided to skip the WSOP Main Event when I learned that even vaccinated people could shed the virus,” said Moneymaker. “If I go to the WSOP I will most certainly be exposed to the virus.”

Moneymaker cashed twice at the 2019 World Series of Poker, including a 687th place finish in the Main Event – the first time Moneymaker had cashed in the Main Event since his 2003 win.

“I was looking forward to live poker in general,” said Moneymaker. “Before the Delta variant, I started to play live locally again and added some stops live to my schedule. That is all gone for the foreseeable future.”

Masks and Vaccines

“If you are not vaccinated […] I cannot handle that kind of stupidity”

We asked Moneymaker whether he had anything to say to those who were hesitant to wear masks or were reluctant to get vaccinated against the virus. Moneymaker did not mince his words.

“If you are not vaccinated or don’t wear a mask at this point, there is nothing I can say to you. I will probably just not speak to you anymore as I can not handle that kind of stupidity.”

Moneymaker has since said that he would love to see the World Series of Poker go forward, and that he would love to play in it. In fact, he finished his tweet with the hashtag #nextyearihope.

However, while the rest of the poker community hopes to write their name into poker folklore, this is just one name they will have to go without for 2021 at least.

Harrah’s New Orleans First Casino to Require Vaccine or Negative COVID-19 Test

harrahs new orleans casino

The city of New Orleans isn’t messing around with the pandemic. Starting August 16, patrons at most New Orleans businesses, including casinos, will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result.

Harrah’s New Orleans, a frequent WSOP Circuit stop, will become the first casino in the U.S. to require guests to prove they are vaccinated or have a recent COVID-19 test result. Many locals aren’t too thrilled with the mandate, and some have voiced their displeasure on social media.

Even fans attending New Orleans Saints NFL games in the fall will be subjected to the new mandate. And some of even the most loyal Saints fans appear to be a bit disturbed by the news.

“Pay $100 per ticket plus concessions to watch in person in a mask or watch free at home? This is a tough one. Enjoy the Ls on attendance and concessions,” @dadbodXL tweeted.

“Yall about to be forced to take a massive L on attendance and people wanting refunds on their tickets. Not to mention any other profits you get from the dome ie concessions,” @Darb04 informed the football team.

Harrah’s New Orleans, a Caesars Entertainment property, has 20 card tables in the main poker room and is a favorite stop among tournament and cash game grinders in the area. But some of those players might be turned off by the city mandate and instead head to a casino outside of New Orleans or nearby.

With that said, Harrah’s New Orleans likely won’t be the only casino required to deny admission for non-vaccinated guests. The city of Los Angeles is considering implementing a similar policy, which means card rooms such as Commerce Casino and The Bicycle Club could soon be forced to do the same. And with businesses — restaurants, bars, retail stores — around the country contemplating similar requirements, poker players should prepare for the inevitable, at least in certain cities and states.

As for the WSOP, which begins September 30 in Las Vegas, vaccines aren’t required, for now. But those who aren’t fully vaccinated against the coronavirus and are determined to have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 could be disqualified from a tournament.
