1. Jim Anderson Wins WSOP Hammond Circuit Regional Championship.
Jim Anderson navigated through a stacked final table yesterday to take down the first-ever $10,000 WSOPC Regional Championship, netting himself $525,449 in the process.
As mentioned, the final table of the event was teeming with talent, including the likes of Brandon Adams, Dave Sands and Shannon Shorr.
The final hand of the event saw Anderson and Gabe Patgorski get all of their chips into the middle pre-flop. They turned over:
Patgorski - Ac-Jc
Anderson - As-Ah
Patgorski was way behind in the hand and would need a small miracle to catch up. The flop didn't help Patgorski at all, as it came 8s-7c-3s. The turn brought the 7s, sealing the deal for Jim Anderson and giving him $525k and the bracelet.
Here is how the final table ended up finishing out on Thursday:
Jim Anderson, $525,449
Gabe Patgorski, $324,770
Bernard Lee, $236,368
Curt Kohlberg, $174,807
Dave Sands, $131,299
Shannon Shorr, $100,151
Brandon Adams, $77,556
Tony Hartmann, $60,952
Mark Owens, $48,615
2. Konstantinos Nanos Leads EPT Vienna Main Event After Day 3.
The EPT Vienna main event just came to a close for the day, with Konstantinos Nanos finishing with the tournament chip lead heading into Day 4 on Saturday.
Thanks to a late surge at the end of the day, Nanos managed to finish slightly ahead of Daniel Negreanu heading into Saturday's action. Nanos finished Day 3 with 2,007,000 in chips, while Negreanu finished with 1,954,000.
There are currently 24 players left in the tournament, down from the 578 that started play a few days ago. All of the remaining players in the event will receive a minimum of 16,000 Euros for making it this far, with the eventual winner of the event taking home 700k Euros.
Here are the top five stacks heading into Day 4 on Saturday:
Konstantinos Nanos - 2,007,000
Daniel Negreanu - 1,954,000
Umberto Vitagliano - 1,558,000
Martin Hruby - 1,403,000
Michael Eiler - 1,299,000
With a victory in this event, Daniel Negreanu would become one of just a handful of players that have won a WSOP bracelet, WPT tournament and EPT main event title. He would also move past Phil Ivey on the all-time tournament money list with a first-place finish in the event.
