Doyle Brunson shall be the main feature of Poker After Dark's "Godfather Week" and he will be playing two special high-stakes mixed game sessions right inside Bobby's Room at the Bellagio in October 23 and 24.
Poker pro Scott Seiver shared on Twitter about his hardcore grind session at the cash game tables.
Seiver had been successful so far in his quest during this year's WSOP. He defeated a field of 114 entries and won Event #52: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship for $296,222, getting himself his second career bracelet in the process. He also cashed three times more at the WSOP.
The final table of Event #57: The Big One for One Drop ($1,000,000 buy-in) is set after two days of intensive play! Day 2 began with 31 players and Sam Trickett out in front. After 13 hours of poker action, Rick Salmon (FILM PRODUCER, ACTOR, TELEVISION PRODUCER, ENTREPRENEUR, PROFESSIONAL POKER PLAYER) bagged up the largest stack (23,575,000 chips) amongst the nine survivors.
Although a €1,105,000 first-place prize was up for grabs on the EPT Grand Final High Roller final table last Friday, it only took approximately 5 hours of play before a winner was crowned. The main reason for this fast-paced final table was that heads-up play only lasted for 1 hand!
68 of 328 players are "alive 'n' kicking" after two days of play at World Poker Tour World Championship (sponsored by PartyPoker) in Atlantic City, USA. The chip leader is Eric Afriat (Champions Club) with 1,003,000 and he's well ahead of the rest of the field.
On Monday, Day 1A of the World Poker Tour World Championship kicked at Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, USA. A total of 105 players (most them well-known pros from the U.S.) showed up and 62 made it through the day with Paul Volpe (US pro with over 2.4 million in live tournament earnings) out in front with 215,300. Other notable players that bagged up plenty of chip were Jerry Wong (198,000), Brandon Steven (195,500), Scott Seiver (192,500) and Anthony Gregg (190,600).
The second starting day begins at 11 a.m. ET. Players that fell during Day 1A will be able to register again today while registration remains open until the start of Level 7. We will be back with another brief update tomorrow morning!
Another day of play has come to an end at Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. A field of 668 entrants has been narrowed down to 36 players after three days of intensive play. The player with the largest stack heading into Day 4 is Sal Fazzino of Australia. Fazzino, who's been around the live scene for several years but still has no major score to his name, took the chip lead in the last hand of the day...
Day 3 of the 2014 Aussie Millions Main Event is currently on 75-minute dinner break. 48 players of 668 entrants will return after the break and play two more levels before calling it a day. There are still a few big names left in the competition, including Jason Mercier (picture - 250k chips) and Scott Seiver (600k chips), and all of the remaining players are now guaranteed to take home at least AUD$20,000 - with the chance of going all the way to the title and the AUD$1.6 million first place prize!
We will be back with a Day 3 recap in a few hours. Stay tuned!
A big congratulations to Sorel Mizzi, the winner of the star-filled $125,000 PartyPoker Premier League VII. The event, which consisted of 12 world-known poker professionals, wrapped up yesterday after several days of play at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal, Canada.
The second and final day of WPT Alpha8 (£100,000 buy-in) saw 11 players returning to their seats, and the number of participants increased to 12 after the late arrival of American businessman Bill Perkins who flew in from the U.S. to United Kingdom mainly for this event.
Event #8: €25,600 High Roller No-Limit Hold'em (the final gold bracelet event at the 2013 WSOPE in Paris) saw 80 entries and only 13 players remain after two days of play. Philipp Gruissem was the only one to bag up more than a million chips at the end of Day 2. The German poker pro won a 700,000 pot with AA during Level 17 against Jason Mercier's AQ on the board Q10366. Gruissem will bring 1.269 million chips to Day 3.

The cards will be back in the air at 1.00 PM local time and registration will remain open for the first 5 levels, so hopefully Phil Hellmuth will join in on the action and take a shot at bracelet number 14!

The final table was played last Saturday and included experienced tournament players such as Max Lykov and Scott Seiver. However, it was a famous online player who had laid hands on the title when the final table concluded...
On Thursday, Ronny Voth was eliminated from the main event after 4 days of play (50th place - €15,000), but the German pro had no plans whatsoever to take a break from poker given that he signed up for the €10,000 buy-in High Roller event. He and another 135 players battled it out for several hours before the tournament director called it a day.
On Thursday, the EPT London High Roller with a £10,300 buy-in (rebuy) kicked off. The tournament saw 127 entries and approximatly 75 players remained after 8 levels of play. Paul Volpe is the chip leader (239,000 chips) heading into Day 2 of the tournament. Volpe has been running extremely good in the past 3 weeks or so. Two weeks ago he finished second in the WPT L.A. Main Event for $651,170, then he finished third in the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Main Event for $435,610 last weekend.
We might see more entries today as players can register for the tournament until 11:45 am. Below are the top 10 stacks when the second day kicks off (in a few hours time).
The second starting day of World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star kicked off yesterday and saw a massive field that matched the size of this entire tournament last season. The total number of participants stands at 635, but the number is still unofficial according to WPT's website.

The 2011 WPT Championship has come to an end and Scott Seiver, who entered the final table second in chips, is the winner after knocking out Farzad Bonyadi in second place! This is how the final hand was played out.
Scott Seiver raised to 400,00, and Bonyadi called. Both players checked to the river on the board of 10[c]6[d]2[s]Q[c]K[s]. Bonyadi checked, Seiver bet 600,000. Bonyadi raised to 1,600,000. Seiver thought for a while before he moved all in. Then it took about 3 minutes before Bonyadi decided to call.
