Third Try's the Charm for Rex Clinkscales - Wins 1st WPTDS Title at 3rd Final Table

WPTDeepStacks regular Rex Clinkscales (pictured) topped a record field of 704 players to win the WPTDS Tampa Main Event on Monday at a final table that clocked in at just over six hours of play. It was Clinkscales third final-table appearance on the tour, and this time he took home his first WPTDS title along with $159,354 in prize money.

Clinkscales made a last-minute decision to travel out to Tampa from Las Vegas after he busted out of a World Series of Poker event, and it turned out to be a great call. “It feels amazing. It’s an incredible feeling. I’m just really blessed, and really fortunate to even be here. I’m just very thankful to be able to win,” said Clinkscales, who was very happy after he made his seventh cash on tour his first WPTDS victory.

Cards got into the air at Noon between the final nine players, and it took two hours of play before Karl Manouchakian busted in ninth place, and Danny Laboto exited in eighth place. Another hour transpired before Amelio Amato took his leave in seventh place.

Clinkscales then scored a key double up thru Zoltan Anda, and that eventually sent Anda to the rail in sixth place. After that, Ryan Luker doubled up once, but he wasn’t able to double up the second time he moved all in. Luker cashed in fifth place, and then a long period of double ups sustained a lengthy four-handed battle.

After holding the chip lead for most of the early stages at the final table, Andrew Boccia was knocked down to a short stack during this stretch of play, and Boccia eventually busted in fourth place. The chip leader at the start of play Sebastian Momtazi was eliminated shortly after that in third place to set up a final battle between Clinkscales and Michael Cohen.

Clinkscales held a large lead with 14,475,000 over the 3.1 million of Cohen, but Cohen was able to double up once to prolong the heads-up battle. Cohen moved all in on the button to start the final hand, and Clinkscales called to cover him. They then flipped over their cards one last time.

Clinkscales: ThTc
Cohen: 9d6d

Board: 5c4c3sKc5h

 Cohen was eliminated in second place, good for $92,374, and Clinkscales won the WPTDS Tampa Main Event. He took home $159,354 in prize money, a $3,000 WPTDS Championship package, and a WPTDS trophy. He also received a $5,000 seat in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event, and a Seminole Hard Rock guitar trophy.

Congratulations to our newest WPTDS Champion, Rex Clinkscales!

Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi Goes Wire-to-Wire to Win DSPT Calgary Main Event

Michael Mizrachi came into the final day of the DSPT Calgary Main Event with a monster chip lead after bagging 567,000 on Day 1A. In the early hours of Sunday morning, Mizrachi finished his wire-to-wire run and won the event and took home $72,150, a pair of Monster DNA headphones and a seat into the DSPT Championship after defeating Karim Chatur heads-up.

The day started with 78 players and the money bubble was looming over everybody's head, with just 54 players earning a cash. Samuel Ngai earned everybody a pay day when he turned a pair of eights after getting all in preflop with his 10♣ 8♣ against his opponent's K J♣. That guaranteed everybody left at least $1,870 and then the bustouts began to pile up and the tournament quickly began to shrink in size.

Among the notables who earned a cash were Calen McNeil, Reigning DSPT POY Ryan Smith, Jonathan Sanborn and Valerie Ross. Ross made it the deepest of the group, bubbling the official final table and finishing in 10th place for $5,975.

As the field size shrank, Mizrachi's stack grew. He hit his stride midway through the day and headed into the final table with almost 25% of the chips in play. He continued to chip up and when the tournament got down to three-handed play, he held just over half the chips in play. He sent Ryan Southworth to the rail in third place and then held a 3-to-2 chip lead over Karim Chatur for an upcoming heads-up battle.

The two agreed on an ICM chop and to just play for the headphones and a seat into the DSPT Championship. Mizrachi took home $72,150 and Chatur took earned $67,500. Mizrachi defeated Chatur in a short heads-up battle to guarantee himself an appearance back here in Calgary at the Grey Eagle Casino for the DSPT Championship in the first week of December.

We have crowned our latest DSPT Champion and taking home the prize is no other than Jason Ross. Ross will take home $68,310 + $3,000 DSPT Championship package after he reached a deal three handed with Richard Mullen and Ian Alvarado where both Mullen and Alvardo would lock up $70,000 and Ross would lock up $60,000, leaving $8,310 and the $3,000 package up for grabs.

Ross came into the day with a commanding chip lead and continued to build his stack throughout the day. There was no shortage of action was we immediately lost John Anga on the first hand of the day. Following Anga we saw Calvin Anderson hit the rail in 8th and Craig Einarson in 7th, both at the hands of eventual 2nd place finished Ian Alvarado.

After the initial flurry of knockouts the action did slow day a bit until eventually Mike Lu lost a massive pot holding 9♠9♣ against the A♥A♠ of Richard Mullen on a K♥7♦9♥10♣ board. The two got all of their chips in the middle and Mullen spiked the A♦ on the river to cripple Lu, as the Lu busted in 6th just a few hands later.

After Lu it was Raymond Trieu who hit the rail in 5th, when his short stack’s A♥3♦ couldn’t hold up against the 7♠8♠ of Jason Ross. After we lost Trieu it seemed as if the tides started to turn as each player took their shot at Jason Ross, all picking up chips off the leader. The chips continued to fly all around the table and would eventually land in the middle of the pot when Tam Duong shoved his last 1,500,000 into the middle holding A♠4♣. Jason Ross woke up with A♦K♦ and that would be the end of Duong as he exited in 4th leaving the remaining 3 to battle it out.

Three handed the action continued as each player took over the chip lead at least once. When the three of them cut a deal it was Ian Alvarado who held a slight chip lead over Richard Mullen and Jason Ross held the shortest stack. After a level of back and forth play, Mullen moved all in with A♣ 2♥ and would fail to improve against the 7♣7♠ of Alvarado, sending him home in 3rd. This would send us into heads up play with Alvarado sitting on 8,200,000 against the 4,500,000 of Jason Ross.

Heads up play wouldn’t last long though as Jason Ross quickly doubled through Alvardo and would eventually cripple him in a huge hand, leaving Ross with over 12.4 of the 12.7 million in play. The next hand Alvarado moved in blind and that was all she wrote for DSPT Edmonton as Jason Ross takes home the DSPT Trophy, $68,310 and the $3,000 DSPT Championship Package!

Winner's Interview:

Tucker Stone Wins WPTDS Iowa ($33,254)

The lights are off, the crowd is gone, and Tucker Stone is your newest WPTDS Champion. It was a wild day of action here at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort and after all was said and done it is Tucker Stone taking home the $33,254 top prize, $3,000 championship package and the WPTDS Iowa Trophy. On top of the first place prize, Stone’s victory also secured him the Player of the Series title which includes a one of a kind WPT VIP experience, custom WPTDS trophy, complimentary two night stay here at Riverside, and an entry into the Riverside Casino and Resort Anniversary Poker Classic.

Stone came into the day as the chip leader but after a few levels of play it was Colin Eric Lovelock who started to rise and eventually take over the chip lead. The day started off fast with the eliminations of Shawn Quinn in 9th, Garret Riley in 8th, Brent Luscombe in 7th, and Jacob Parsons in 6th.

Once we hit 5 handed play the action slowed down substantially as we went over three hours without an elimination. Returning from dinner it was Tristan Wade who would eventually hit the rail in 5th at the hands of Colin Lovelock. Shortly after Wade it was Matt Sztamburski who was eliminated in 4th leaving us two eliminations away from a new champion. Chris Gerhardt was eliminated in 3rd and we were left heads up with Colin Lovelock holding a small chip advtange with his 1,835,000 to the 1,400,000 of Tucker Stone.

Heads up started off with a lot of pre flop raises taking down the pots until fireworks erupted in what was the biggest hand of the night. Colin Eric Lovelock opened to 75,000 and Tucker Stone would shove all in for close to 1.4 million and his tournament life. Lovelock snap called and tabled the A♠A♣ Stone needed help as he held the 2♠2♦. The dealer spread the flop of 5♠4♦6♠ and Stone would need a 3 for a straight or one of the remaining twos in the deck.

The turn brought the J♦ and Lovelock was one card away from the victory. “Queen of hearts” yelled Lovelock before the dealer put the 3♠ on the river giving Stone the straight and the double up. Stone took over a commanding shipload as he would now sit with 2,850,000 of the 3,375,000 chips in play. A few hands later his A♣6♠ would best the 6♦6♣ of Lovelock and we were left with our newest champion.

Thank you to everyone who came out and we will see you guys in Turlock!

 

 

Josh Moua Wins WPTDS Central CA Main Event

 

The WPTDS Central CA Main Event has come to a close and Josh Moua (pictured above) has topped a field of 175 players to take home the top prize worth, a $3,000 WPTDS Championship Seat and Travel Package, the WPTDS Trophy, and a pair of Monster DNA Headphones. He claimed the title just before 1 a.m. on Monday at the Turlock Poker Room in the Central Valley of California.

The final day of the tournament saw the field reach the money when the final 19 players remained, and the final table was set around 7 p.m. in the evening. Simon Silas fell in quick succession in 10th place, and then the Day 1A chip leader Mark Johnson was surprisingly the next player to fall in ninth place. Jashti Kumar then took his leave in eighth place.

One of the largest hands of the tournament took place when Moua doubled up to a million thanks to a flopped flush against Miguel Lopez, who took a big hit on the hand. Lopez was actually the next player to fall in seventh place when his pocket sixes ran into the pocket tens of Aram Alexander. The final six players then took a dinner break just after 9 p.m.

The half-dozen players that returned from dinner circled the prospect of a chop after their break but decided to keep playing until Adrian Bolanos busted in sixth place. They paused again after that took place and this time they decided to chop the remaining prize pool. Here is a look at the payouts in the chop agreement:

Seat 3: Dana Muse – 630,000 ($23,037)
Seat 5: Josh Moua – 2,060,000 ($36,341)
Seat 7: Aram Alexander – 505,000 ($21,068)
Seat 8: Francisco Loera – 1,035,000 ($28,215)
Seat 10: Robert Huff – 200,000 ($15,052)

There was still the matter of the WPTDS Title, trophy, $3,000 WPTDS Championship Prize Package, and a pair of Monster DNA Headphones to decide, so the remaining five players then played down to a champion. Francisco Loera was the first to fall after he was crippled in a hand where the pocket tens of Dana Muse found a ten on the river to beat his pocket jacks. Loera was out in fifth place a short time later and he was followed to the rail by Robert Huff in fourth place.

Aram Alexander exited in third place and that set up a final match between Moua (2,855,000) and Muse (1,520,000). Muse doubled up twice to take the chip lead in the heads-up final, but the stacks were still pretty close as they played past midnight. Moua regained the lead when the chips went into the middle a final time. Muse was all in preflop with 10♦6♥ in the hole and Moua had her covered holding 8♠6♦. The board was dealt J♦8♦4♠2♠8♣ and Muse was eliminated in second place. That made Moua the champion of the tournament. Congratulations to our newest WPTDS Champion Josh Moua!

Final Table Results:

1: Josh Moua – $50,594 + WPTDS Champ Package
2: Dana Muse – $30,015
3: Aram Alexander – $19,176
4: Robert Huff – $13,507
5: Francisco Loera – $10,423
6: Adrian Bolanos – $7,921
7: Miguel Lopez- $6,170
8: Jashti Kumar- $4,586
9: Mark Johnson-$3,252
10: Simon Silas- $2,585

That concludes our coverage of the WPTDS Central CA Main Event. Thanks to the Turlock Poker Room for hosting another great event, and congratulations to them on the 13.6 percent year-over-year growth of the Main Event field. The next stop on the tour will take us south to the Bicycle Casino for the WPTDS Los Angeles Main Event July 11-14.

 

James Gorham Wins WPTDS LA Main Event

 

The WPTDeepStacks LA $1,100 Main Event has come to a close and James Gorham has topped the field of 367 players to take home the top prize worth $,95,290 and the WPTDS trophy. This three-day tournament came to a conclusion on Tuesday evening after a quick final table decided the winner. Things did start a little slow before the first elimination of the day, and it was Keith Kwazar who hit the rail first in ninth place. Paul Chauderson (Eighth Place) and Jay Helfert (Seventh Place) fell in quick succession after that. Craig Berger started to pull away with the chip lead at this point in play.

Prashray Rai then doubled up twice to stave off elimination before William Zaiss was eliminated in sixth place. The last woman standing today was Dana Muse. She took fifth place after finishing as the runner-up in the WPTDS Central California Main Event just one month ago.

Chad Geske saw his tournament run come to an end in fourth place when his two pair fell against the straight of Berger, who further increased his chip lead before the start of three-handed play. James Gorham started the day with the lead though, and he reclaimed that lead after eliminating Prashray Rai in third place.

Gorham took 4,735,000 into the final match but Berger was close on his heels with 4,445,000. Play started slow between the final two players since the stacks were so evenly match but the fireworks eventually started. Gotham got low but he doubled up twice before the defining hand of the final match took place. Berger was dealt a Broadway straight but Gorham made a flush on the river to win the largest pot in the tournament.

Berger was crippled after that and he was all in a short time later with A-7, but Gorham did him one better with A-8. The final board fell 8-5-2-K-7 and that was it for Berger, his tournament run came to an end in second place. Gorham took home the top prize of $95,290, the WPTDeepStacks trophy, and a pair of Monster DNA headphones.

Dustin Fox Tops Record Field of 330 to Win Inagural WPTDS Reno Main Event

The WPTDeepStacks Reno Main Event came to a close late Sunday night at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Nevada. A champion has emerged from the record-breaking field of 330 players and his name is Dustin Fox. He takes home the top prize worth $70,054, the WPTDeepStacks trophy, and a $3,000 WPTDeepStacks Championship package.

There were 53 players that returned for the final day of this event at noon PT, and only the top 36 made the money. Allen Kessler, Dana Muse, Andrew Bedecker, and Nicholas Pupillo were among the early bustouts that missed the money. Notables that did cash included WPTDS LA Season 2 champion James Gorham (17th place) and Nicholas Revello (11th place).

The final table was reached around 6:30 p.m. and the final nine players took a dinner break before returning for the final skirmish. Dean Reno (ninth place), Ravi Shanmugam (eighth place), WPTDS LA Season 1 champion Steve Foutty (seventh place), and Angela Jordison (sixth place) busted during the first hour of play.

Scott Sherwood scored a series of double ups before busting out in fifth place. Ivan Holmes and Dustin Fox then doubled up through Cary Marshall, and that led to his exit in fourth place. The battle for third place lasted an hour before Brandon Jones took his leave, and that set up a heads-up final between Holmes and Fox. It took just two hands to decide a winner of the final match, and Fox won the tournament with jacks-up topping the nines-up held by Holmes.
