WORLD SERIES OF POKER LADIES CHAMPIONSHIP COMPLETES
2014-07-02

The $10,000 buy-in Ladies NLHE Championship competition - number 53 on the World Series of Poker schedule - came to a conclusion over the weekend with a heads up between two amateur players, businesswoman Haixa Zhang and digital marketing specialist Mikiyo Aoki.

It was the culmination of a three day affair in which 793 entrants competed for the lion's share of a $713,700 prize pool, with the heads up decided quickly after a 30-hand tussle at the three-handed stage saw third placed Meikat Siu eliminated for $61,114.

Mikiyo Aoki, who had held the chip lead at the start of the final table, was pitted against Haixa Zhang in the final hands of the event, with Zhang holding a slight advantage that she managed to build on with some good cards, enabling her to bust Aoki in a little over an hour and claim the main prize of $153,470 and her first WSOP bracelet.

Aoki took home $94,800, whilst the remaining players enjoyed pay-days of:

Meikat Siu $61,114
Elizabeth Montizanti $44,770
Patti Landis $33,279
Persia Bonella $25,072
Kendra Wray $19,120
Stacey Sullivan $14,752
Patricia Cahill $11,504

When InfoPowa went to press late evening Las Vegas time the star studded charity match Big One for One Drop (event 57) was in full swing with 37 of the original 42 entrants still in action and UK poker pro Sam Trickett leading the pack on 14.35 million chips - comfortably ahead of nearest rival Tom Hall on 8.25 million.

The prize pool for the event is $37,333,338.




DUTCH POKER ACE TAKES THE BERLIN CUP HOME
2013-04-25

The international poker action centred NFL Betting Lines on Berlin in Germany this weekend, where the European Poker Tour Berlin main event kicked off, and the Berlin Cup came to a conclusion, with Dutch player Pieter De Korver claiming the lion's share of the Euro 500,000 guaranteed Berlin Cup prize pool.

With a reasonably affordable buy-in of Euro 1,100, and the chance that 112 players would make the money bubble, the Cup tournament attracted a healthy entry field of 911 players, generating a prize pool well in excess of the guarantee at Euro 883,670, and a potential first placing reward of Euro 180,000.

By the time the final table was reached, Anatoly Filatov - a Russian pro - was in charge, leading a group of survivors that included Pieter de Korver (Netherlands); Sebastian Gohr (Germany); Jonas Garstick (Switzerland); Esben Guenther (Norway); Erik Scheidt (Germany); Gokhan Onal (Germany) and Vladimir Geshkenbein (Russia).

But it was middle-stack man De Korver who ended up the ultimate victor, working his way through his opponents and building his stack with patience and talent.

When the table was down to three - De Korver, Filatov and Ghor - a three-way chop was agreed before Filatov was eliminated and De Korver and Gohr faced off in the heads up.

De Korver's overwhelming chip lead was too much for Gohr to surmount, and the honours went to the Dutch player, albeit with a slightly reduced main prize of Euro 145,400 due to the earlier chop.

This was Gohr's third six-figure payout in the last half-year; he was the runner-up in the Master Classic of Poker main event in November, and finished third in the Pokerstars Hold'em Challenge Winter Edition main event in December.

Gohr took home Euro 93,600.

The main event of the Euro 5,300 buy-in season 9 of the European Poker Tour Berlin kicked off over the weekend with 347 hopefuls taking their seats for Day 1A. By day's end just 250 bagged their chips and officials prepared for starting day 1B.

Leading the first day survivors is Ronny Voth with 196,100 in chips, closely pursued by Mike Kunze (188,000) and Thomas Richter (176,100). Average chip stacks are at 41,640.

Last seasons EPT Berlin main event champion was Belgian pro Davidi Kitai, who won Euro 712,000 after besting a 745-strong international field.

SULSKY COMEBACK ON HIGH STAKES ONLINE POKER TABLES
2013-01-12

It's been an incredible introduction to 2013 for poker pro Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom, who has earned $4.1 million in just over a week, crushing some of the best players around on the high stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker.
But at some point there had to be a dip, and that occurred Wednesday when Blom took a half-million dollar bankroll to the $400/$800 PLO virtual tables and lost a chunk of it to his main opponent, Ben 'Sauce1234' Sulsky in an epic 5.5 hour encounter.
It was sweet revenge for Sulsky, who had lost large amounts of money to Blom - most recently $743,000 - as he rode his monumental heater. Over the 5.5 hours of intense action, around 30 six-figure pots were developed, with the number of $200,000 pots going into double digits, according to High Stakes Data Base. The biggest pot of the day - $303,700 - went to Blom.
Sulsky recovered $392,800 from his Swedish opponent, whilst Blom was down overall on the day by $509,000 after losing some triple draw clashes as well.
From Sulskys perspective it was not money easily won; HSDB reports that at one point just before the sudden and brutal downswing in his fortunes, Blom was up around $350,000.
The fact that he had conserved the bulk of his overall winnings for another day suggests that Blom's 'boom or bust' playing philosophy has been wisely modified by bitter experience, although the young Swede remains an aggressive and dangerous player.
Sulsky will be relieved to have recovered some of the $1.1 million he has handed over to Blom this year.
The two players agreed to meet again on the tables without settling on a firm date and time, but an early return session is expected.
