Event #43: DOUBLE STACK No-Limit Hold’em

After 5 days of play, Anthony Denove won the $1,000 event and its 3,991 entries for $446k. Denove, who had been playing cash since 6 years, had until then many small stakes tournaments cashes but never won more than $6,330 in a single tournament.

Denove crossed path with Michael Wang who started the day with the chip lead but an unfortunate turn of events made him lose in 9th place. Poker commentator Jeff Platt, starting 9th, climbed a few spots in the ladder to grab the 4th place and $160k.

Event #45: Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship

Tommy Le is definitely one of the best PLO tournament player of the planet! After winning the championship in 2017, Le won the tournament again for a second bracelet. The player is truly in top form: he finished second in the $1,500 PLO event #39 this year, and now totals eight WSOP final table appearances since 2010, showing how solid he is in Omaha.

Le said that “No Limit is more soft but PLO is still unknown and you kinda just play based on instincts,” also adding that “not playing conventional makes him tough to play against.”

Event #47: Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed

In the $5,000 freezeout event, Alexandre Reard came out on top to grab a nice $428k prize. The player is no stranger to the felt as he’s the proud owner of two WSOP Circuit rings and more than $3M in total live earnings. After the win, Reard talked about an “indescribable feeling”, “a sincere and strong moment” but truly came here for business: “I won’t party today, there are too many beautiful tournaments to play but we’ll definitely organize a big party with the french community at the end of the series to celebrate. I need to keep working and stay focused for now!”
