Winline Media Poker

Winline Media Poker 5 in Sochi ends tonight. This competition deserves special attention for a number of reasons. Firstly, the prize pool reaches a record £5,000,000. Secondly, the winner was the famous comedian Sergey Matvienko.

The last move of the game deserves special attention. Matvienko and Dmitry Likhanov in a one-on-one match. The future winner is the chip leader at that point and retains this position until the end. The final hand on the flop saw 3 of clubs Q-J and 3 of diamonds. Lixx decided to take a risk and went all-in on Hybrid J-8. Matviyenko responded with a 4-3 victory over the club.

The board worked well for both players. One has a pair of Jacks, the other has a pair of 3s and a flush draw. “This coin is a 50/50 chance for both players. The King of Spades comes on the turn, increasing Likhanov’s chances. However, Matvienko has 14 out cards, one of which is on the river 3 of spades.

The final hand of the tournament

This is the first time in tournament history that first place was taken by a participant whose main activity had nothing to do with poker. To win the main prize, Sergey had to defeat 23 opponents. Among them is Sergey Kefir Nikiforov, one of the past champions of the event.

The ITM for this event consists of three courses. Dmitry Likhanov and Anton Shastun also entered price territory. The next competition is scheduled for this summer.

Mobile Poker Club

MPC is one of the oldest rooms available to Russian players. It is famous among poker players for its large number of freerolls and conservative lobby appearance, which is reminiscent of the site’s design in the late 1990s. However, that all changed this weekend. Rum presents players with a new, modern client design.

The interface is now dark, and the icons and names look more visually appealing. In addition, space managers said the new lobby will be outfitted with updated features over time. If someone doesn’t like the current look, they can always switch to an older version.

EPT: Kim de Sousa wins big pot on final leg of ME Day 1B

Kim de Sousa breaks, evading a triple all-in with...

Kim de Sousa from the state of Goiás is the Brazilian who collected the most chips on Day 1B of the EPT Paris Main Event. He had a roller-coaster day. However, the last few hands were uneventful, with a very difficult cooler and a triple-all-in win.

The match took place with blinds of 600/1,200 and Kim de Sousa pressed the button after Iranian Nariman Yaghmai hijacked the opening with a small raise. Swiss player Bekim Murtezi was the big blind and decided to defend.

The flop came and Brazilian players won the top three. Bekim checked and saw Nariman bet with two pair. Kim was broke and had just called his opponent’s bet when he saw the big blind continue his hand. The turn came to one and the hand was finally over.

Now all three have strong cards. Bekim checked again and this time Nariman bet 14,000 chips. Kim decided to go all-in with a three-bet for 32,000 chips and saw the Swiss player go all-in in the big blind.

According to what the Goiás native revealed to Mundo Poker, the Iranian player pondered for five minutes, and at the end of the two games, it was a draw with a flush. After being called on the traditional “clock”, he decided to call with a stack very close to Kim’s and created a huge pot.

The Iranians still have a lot of out cards, while the Swiss and Brazilians only have 3 out cards. Divide equally to eliminate. However, Kim de Sousa saw the best hand on the river and took home a whopping 150,000 in chips on the second day of play. Bekim went on to take 87,000 chips and Nariman was eliminated. What a breakthrough!

Phil Hellmuth misses bad NFL weekend bets

Phil Hellmuth had a disastrous weekend after missi...

No one can doubt Phil Hellmuth’s poker qualities. The American is the record holder of 17 WSOP bracelets and is considered one of the best players in the history of the sport with an extremely enviable resume.

But Hellmuth’s poker skills didn’t always carry over. Enter other areas such as sports betting this way. The American often expresses his opinions on the NFL (American Football League) on his Twitter account, and during the 2023 season several bets he posted on the social network turned out to be wrong. This situation repeated itself in the wild-card round that marked the first week of the NFL playoffs:

Hellmuth’s bets were Cleveland Browns -2 and Detroit Lions -3 – which effectively means The Browns had to beat the Houston Texans by three points or more, while the Lions had to beat the Los Angeles Rams by at least four points; what actually happened was that the Browns lost 45-14, and The Lions won, but they couldn’t make up the margin needed to win the bet by a score of 24-23.

Well, the NFL playoffs are now divisional rounds instead of round-robin games There are currently eight teams still competing for the title. Two games will be played on Saturday and two more on Sunday. I don’t know about you, but I’m waiting for Hellmuth to post his bet for this round on his Twitter account: place the opposite bet and celebrate the win.
