Jessica Teusl Claims Ladies Event Victory

Austrian poker player Jessica Teusl came back from having only eight big blinds to win Event #66 for a top prize of $166,975. In what was a thrilling Ladies Event, there was a great turn-out and some brilliant players made the final table.

Cherish Andrews had departed in ninth place on the previous day despite dominating much of the tournament, and first to bust at the final table was Natalie Hof Ramos, wife of Brazilian player Felipe Ramos. Sandy Tran and Lynh Nguyen, who led the final table, both busted next, before it got down to the podium places where the event was decided.

Christina Gollins had been a major player in the event, but she was out in third place for $73,604 as Julie Le made the heads-up. Austrian player Teusl then took over, and joining her boyfriend Stefan Lehner in winning a bracelet, took home the top prize of $166,975 after beating Le to the gold, leaving the American player to collect the second-place prize of $103,196.

Dudley Dashes to Super Turbo Bracelet Win

In the $1,500-entry Super Turbo Bounty Event #62, Dash Dudley won the $301,396 top prize, beating David Sanchez to the bracelet. It was a fast-paced final table, which saw Dudley take the crown, but a few levels earlier on Day 1, Dudley was almost on the rail. Down to just a chip and a chair, Dudley roared back and in Super Turbo tradition, came back to win.

With poker players such as Romain Guilbert, Chris Fraser and Shaun Colquhoun all exiting the event before the final table was reached, the final nine became six after a trio of homegrown players crashed out as Americans Ken Drewry, Dimitre Dimitrov and Kevin Davis all busted.

Down to six, Japanese player Yuhei Sanada lost out for $59,306, Harpreet Padda from Canada followed in fifth and Czech pro Jan Bednar left in fourth place.

After the overnight chip leader John Bredengerd was busted in third, Dudley was heads-up with David Sanchez for the win. Sanchez moved all-in with king-jack, but Dudley had him beat with king-queen and saw it home to book another bracelet win and collect his second gold bracelet.

Eli Elezra Wins Fifth WSOP Bracelet in PLO

“British player Robert Cowen fell two places short of winning his second bracelet of the 2022 series.”

Israel’s Eli Elezra won his fifth WSOP bracelet on a historic day for this year’s Poker Hall of Fame inductee. Overnight, it was Chino Rheem who led the field, and he continued where he started the day, slicing through a talented field with aplomb.

Last year’s event winner Josh Arieh made the final table, but while the WSOP Player of Year in 2021 outlasted players such as Amnon Filippi (15th) and Allen Kessler (11th), Arieh could only extend his run to seventh place after starting the final table shortest of the nine starters.

British player Robert Cowen fell two places short of winning his second bracelet of the 2022 series, with only Dan Zack managing that feat to date. Heads-up, Elezra had nine million chips to Rhee’s eight million and Rheem’s own bracelet curse carried on as Elezra denied him gold for the first time by winning his fifth.

Angelov Wins PLO Deepstack Gold  

Event #64 saw Konstantin Angelov win the gold bracelet as 102 players worked their way down to a winner in the $600-entry PLO Deepstack event. Legends of the felt such as Shaun Deeb, Koray Aldemir, Michael Mizrachi and Tommy Le all left before the final table of nine was reached.

With Chris Keller busting in ninth, Rafael Mota followed him from the felt in eight before Ben Miner (7th) and Frenchman Philippe Pelluault (6th) reduced the field to just five players. After Brazilian 888poker ambassador Vivian Saliba got close but fell just short in 5th place for $52,795, she was followed from the felt by the former chip leader Guillarme Soumier in fourth for $69,501.

After Igor Ioffe followed in third place for $92,200, the fina two battled for the bracelet and the all-American clash saw Angelov’s stack of 51.2 million chips prevail against Gregg Merkow’s 34.5 million, Angelov taking the $199,466 top prize and the first bracelet of his poker career.

David Jackson Beats Phil Hellmuth Heads-Up in $3k NLHE Event  

“Hellmuth’s ravenous destruction of a roast beef sandwich was something he’ll never live down.”

A dramatic ending that had it all saw David Jackson finally clinch victory against Phil Hellmuth in one of the most entertaining final tables in recent times. The $3,000 NLHE Event hadn’t been dominated by Phil Hellmuth, but when the Poker Brat made the final table, everyone had the feeling that it could be a special evening at the felt.

So it proved as, after Hellmuth got three-handed, some incredible play and hi-jinks at the table – Hellmuth’s ravenous destruction of a roast beef sandwich was something he’ll never live down no matter how many bracelets he eventually wins – made it a memorable event for fans to watch live on PokerGO.

In the end, Jackson got the better of Hellmuth, with the pair sharing three deals of pocket aces in the opening 20 minutes of heads-up poker. Both men had the lead, but Hellmuth for the briefest time, before Jackson grabbed it back then got it all-in in bad shape with king-jack, only to river a straight against Hellmuth’s ace-seven when 4:1 up in chips.
