Tournaments and Cash Games
The WSOP may be in full swing, but that doesn’t mean that tournament poker in other parts of the world has stopped. In fact, this week’s big winners include prominent artists from Europe, the US and online. Of course, we can’t ignore what’s going on in Las Vegas, which is why we also picked some of the top WSOP champions. So, to see who won what in the tournament world over the last seven days, scroll down to see the big winners of CardsChat week ending June 5th.
Welcome to Hell
Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) main event.
WElcomeINnferNO might want to keep your real name out of the spotlight, but we can’t ignore your victory at the $ 10,300 main SCOOP event. In his own words, the professional cash game worked “like a god” at Wednesday’s final table. Speaking on the PokerStars podcast, WElcomeINnferNO explained how almost every major pot went its own way. With the chip advantage on his side, he eliminated four players in 30 minutes. From there, it took a little over 1.5 hours to complete his final table blitz and claim his first SCOOP title.
Millions of online edition KO
Partypoker ambassador Partrick Leonard could have taken the chip lead at the final table on Tuesday, but Brazilian Boianovsky clearly hadn’t read the script. Coach Run It Once would not allow Leonard to claim another high-profile win at the inaugural Millions Online KO event, even if he started the final with the shortest stack. A total of 1,249 players entered the $ 1,050 MTT, and Leonard was the favorite at the start of the game. However, Boianovsky soon changed that. After fattening and removing Patrick Hyllegaard, he shed tears for his first Millions title and a six-figure score.
The monthly monster
The Lodge Card Club
Lowry took advantage of the Lodge’s new and improved tournament program on Monday to win the $ 600 monthly “monster” event. The Texan got up in the poker room owned by the poker and did the job after playing with over 300 players and reaching a five-way deal. The final five closed out $ 45,000 each, but there was plenty to play in the restart. In addition to an additional $ 25,000, there was another impressive trophy from the Lodge Poker Club. Lowry got his hands on the ornate trinket and a higher pay day in his career after outscoring his last four opponents.
Partypoker Live Millions Europe Open
Colillas did not have to travel much to win his first live event in 2022. The Spanish professional lives in Barcelona and made the brief trip to his local casino to join 202 other players in the opening of the series of € 1,100 ($ 1,200). Colillas entered the day 1D, but did not pass the session. Fortunately, he was able to re-enter Day 1E. He passed that session, and the next, to reserve a place at the end of Sunday. From there, he embraced the shortstack dynamic of the final table and got the win at the casino where he first learned to play poker.
$ 200,000 guaranteed quantum event
Casino Lucky Lady
Although Quantum tournaments in Southern California are usually held exclusively at Bicycle Casino, Lucky Lady Casino hosted two different six-digit guaranteed events, with the $ 200,000 guaranteed main event ending on June 2. . In the end, it was regular SoCal and part-time player Paul Chauderson who ended up at the top of a three-way game, taking home as much as $ 40,000. Hyung Bae and Zelin Wang were also part of the game, and each player took home more than $ 24,000. This is Chauderson’s second big win of the year, as he also earned more than $ 60,000 on the bike in early April at one of his quantum events.
DACH Masters High Roller
King’s Resort Rozvadov
Bahri racked up his second live tournament score on Sunday after winning the € 660 ($ 710) DACH Masters event. The Frenchman was one of 76 players in the largest poker room in the Czech Republic. With 14 players exercising their right to re-enter, Bahri claimed the lion’s share of a prize pool of € 51,300 ($ 55,025) after beating striker Marius Alexandru Gicovanu.
WSOP High Roller Bounty
Peters made one of the best performances of his career to defeat a tough final table and win his fourth WSOP bracelet. The U.S. professional joined 45 high rollers last week for the first $ 100,000 WSOP event. Only seven reached the final table on Thursday, and with Phil Ivey in the mix, all the others seemed to play for second place. However, focusing on Ivey was good for Peters. He was able to make his way through the talent line of an assassin and beat Chance Kornuth in a head-to-head battle that lasted just 10 minutes to secure another $ 1 million payday.
WSOP Employee Event
Kopp went from short stack to champion of the first event at the WSOP this year on Thursday. The longtime Cleveland dealer was one of 832 players who entered the $ 500 employee event. With his mother chanting “I can’t stop Kopp” chants from the rail, he made an unbeatable run in the final stages of the tournament. When Wyatt Frost finally fell to second place, Kopp claimed his first WSOP bracelet.
