Some of the poker world's brightest shining stars competed in the 2017 Triton Super High Roller Series Manila HK$250,000 (approx. $32.2k) 6-Max Event over the weekend. The event drew a field of 43 entries, including 8 re-entries, which generated a prize pool of HK$10,113,600. It took just about 12 hours of play on the second day to boil down a very talented field of poker pros into just one player: Daniel Colman.
Today the final table of the 2015 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event will be played. A field of 907 players entered the tournament for $5,250 each, which means that that host of the tournament must add some $500k to cover the $5 million guarantee. Now, after several days of play, the original starting field has become a final table of 9 - who will be fighting for a 1 million dollar first-place prize!
The very first Annual American Poker Awards Ceremony (sponsored by PokerStars) took place in Beverly Hills on February 27th, 2015, and around 200 guests attended the event, including elite poker players, industry leaders and operators from the North American Poker World.
