Sirisakorn Earns His First WSOP Bracelet

There were 405 players who took part in the 2017 WSOP $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo event.


It was a keenly contested event and at the end of the day, it was Smith Sirisakorn who had the final laugh. He took home the first WSOP gold bracelet of his career and also the top prize of $215,902.

Sirisakorn did not have any live cash earnings to report about when he entered the tournament. He has only one cash from a tournament and that was many years ago. He mainly plays cash game in Los Angeles and loves playing the Stud/8, $40 or $80 limits or the Omaha/8 disciplines.

Smith said that he did not play in many tournaments. He is just a recreational player even though he has loads of experience playing in the cash games. Sirisakorn entered the final day of the event with a decent stack. He was in 3rd position among the final 14 players who made it to the final day. He was able to get the better of all players on his table from the start and ran over them. He climbed to over 1 million chips within the first hour of play. (more…)

Wong Goes Past 4,756-Entries To Win $250,000

Jerry Wong is a very happy man. He has won the 2017 WPTDeepStacks SHR Lucky Hearts Poker Open Ultimate Re-Entry Event getting the better of 4,756 entries to win $250,000.


He has bettered his record at the World Poker Tour event as he finished in the 8th position out of 6,737 entries in 2016 for a World Series of Poker main event. He has proved once again that he can find his way through a massive field and eventually get to a position of reckoning and that is to enter the final table.

It was a $360 buy-in tournament and the 4,756 entries recorded was the second largest tournament entry registered in the history of poker in Florida. The increase in the number of entries meant that the $500,000 guarantee was demolished and it went on to become a $1,426,800 prize pool. That’s a lot of money. (more…)

Montreal Nationals Victory On GPL 1

The poker champions Montreal Nationals made it to the top by defeating The Berlin Bears to become the first winners of GPL season 1.


They won $100,000 as the first prize in the Global Poker League. The winner Sorel Mizzi achieved victory with a win over Mike McDonald. He expressed his views on his victory by saying a few words. He always dreamt of playing poker, but was always contemplating if he could succeed in the game. Football has always been the true love for almost 30 years for the player, but he never thought that anything could match up to this lovely game. The player would have never played poker with enthusiasm if he did not have the ability to win or lose funding. Money is the main attraction that keeps you engrossed in the game and without it, there is no fun.

Soon after the GPL Draft was finished in the month of February, the player had 2 teams for him that stood out. One was the London Royals which looked competitive and the other one was the Montreal Nationals. Both teams made it to the Playoffs in Las Vegas. The second season will be yet another exciting event to watch. The event of the next season will certainly show the world how engrossing the game can be. (more…)
