Camosci claims WSOP $2,100 Bounty Championship

(credits: Assopoker.com)
It took fewer than ten hours of play in the most recent 2020 GGPoker World Series of Poker Online Bracelet Events to crown a champion in Event #50: $2,100 Bounty Championship. Flying the Maltese flag, it was Italy's Enrico "GTOExploiter" Camosci that topped a field of 1,168 entries to take home the lion's share of the $2,336,000 prize pool.

Camosci entered the final table as the chip leader after eliminating Alex Difelice on the final table bubble and spent most of the time near the top of the leaderboard after. He subsequently knocked out three of the finalists and has earned his maiden WSOP gold bracelet along with $327,319 for his efforts.

The sheer magnitude of Camosci's bounty prize of $142,740, which is bigger than the cash prize for second-placed Omer "omeroz01" Ozsirkintis and nearly as big as the total prize of third-placed Aki "Seabossss" Virtanen, reveals the importance of the progressive knockout format which triggered most of the action throughout the day.

The final table also featured 2017 WSOP Main Event finalist Damian Salas, Dominik Panka and Connor Drinan who were the first three players to bust.

O'Dea wins first WSOP bracelet


After more than ten and a half hours, the next first-time winner has been crowned in the 2020 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events and it was Eoghan "DrRoche" O'Dea who triumphed in Event #51: $400 Pot Limit Omaha. The event created a field of 2,005 entries and prize pool of $753,880, of which O'Dea earned the biggest slice worth $100,945 after defeating Nital "4TheAnimals" Jethalal in heads-up.

While O'Dea is perhaps known to many as a finalist of the 2011 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas, he has a lot of cashes in PLO tournaments to his name. Most notably, he reached the final table of the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship in 2017 and 2019, finishing in 6th place both times.

O'Dea becomes the fifth Irish player to win the coveted WSOP gold bracelet and further grows the family legacy in a rare feat on the international poker circuit. His father Donnacha O'Dea, one of the most-well known Irish poker legends, left big footsteps to follow in as he was the first Irishman to earn this merit back in 1998. Perhaps, it comes as no surprise that the "The Don" also claimed his victory in the great game of PLO and Eoghan can now claim one of his own.

Romaine captures WSOP $1,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 6-Max

(WSOP)
On Tuesday night, the 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #28: $1,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 6-Max attracted 425 players who rebought 100 times. The 525-entry field resulted in a $498,750 prize pool, and after 12 hours of play, it was Connecticut's William "SlaweelRyam" Romaine coming out on top for $110,672.62 and his first gold bracelet

It was a bit of redemption for Romaine, who earlier in the series finished runner-up to Michael "miguelfiesta" Lech in Event #13: $1,500 High Roller Freezeout, which was good for $110,979. Romaine went on to notch four smaller cashes before getting his hands on a gold bracelet here two weeks later.

It wasn't the first time Romaine hit it big on WSOP.com; in fact, his lone gold ring came back in March 2019 when he won the WSOP Circuit WSOP.com $525 Main Event for $92,400. In the live realm, Romaine has $234,614 in tournament earnings including a career-best $142,215 for finishing 61st in last year's WSOP Main Event.

After two-time bracelet winner Anthony "heheh" Zinno bubbled in 81st place, the march to the final table began in earnest. Among those to fall short but earn a payday were Brian "tsarrast" Rast (69th - $1,596), Eric "circleball" Baldwin (59th - $1,695.75), Ryan "im.sorry" Torgersen (38th - $2,144.62), Erica "huckcheevers" Lindgren (30th - $2,992.50), Ryan "protential" Laplante (22nd - $3,690.75), ESPN commentator Norman "normanchad" Chad (13th - $4,638.37), three-time bracelet winner Upeshka "gomezhamburg" De Silva (9th - $7,880.25), and final table bubble boy Ralph "sosana" Perry (7th - $10,673.25).

UK delays the reopening of land-based casinos


After announcing on 17 July that land-based casinos would be able to reopen on 1 August, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson today postponed plans to allow "high-risk venues such as casinos, bowling alleys and ice rinks" to reopen on Saturday.

They will have to wait at least another two weeks, he said.

“Our assessment is that we should now squeeze that brake pedal in order to keep the virus under control,” Johnson said in a press conference on Friday. “We cannot be complacent. I won’t stand by and allow this virus to cause more pain and more heartache in our country.”

The decision was questioned by Betting and Gaming Council CEO Michael Dugher on Twitter:

"There is no evidence that casinos are “higher risk” venues + what happened to the Govt’s local lockdown strategy? Why should a casino business remain closed in Bristol in the south west, where Covid is low, because there’s a spike in greater Manchester? Big threat to jobs."

Meanwhile, in Scotland, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced a "provisional date" of 24 August for the country’s casinos and bingo halls to reopen.

Oksana Baiul joins celebrity line-up for online charity poker tournament


Global Entertainment Headliner and 1994 Olympic Gold Champion Oksana Baiul is going "all in" for a great cause as Miracle Flights, the nation's leading medical flight charity, hosts its first-ever online poker tournament on Wednesday, August 5 at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT. Other celebrities planning to lend a "hand" include comedic star Brad Garrett, Richard Kind, Michael Ian Black and poker pro Matt Berkey.

The tournament is open to the public, with poker players of all skill levels invited to join the action for a buy-in of $100. All proceeds will go directly to support Miracle Flights, the national nonprofit that provides free plane tickets to families who need specialized medical treatment far from home. Registration is currently open at https://miracleflights.org/poker.

This event marks the first online fundraiser for Miracle Flights, which has been flying families to distant medical care for 35 years. The organization has continued its mission amid the Covid-19 pandemic and even expanded its services to help more families in need—relaxing its income guidelines, coordinating ground transportation and providing face masks to every flyer.

"For so many families, postponing life-saving medical treatment is simply not an option," says Miracle Flights CEO Mark E. Brown. "Every dollar raised in this tournament will not only help alleviate the financial burden these families face, but also ease the emotional stress that comes with having to travel during the pandemic."

Brown will join Faded Spade Card Club CEO Tom Wheaton as co-host of the tournament, which will be streamed live on Twitch.

The Venetian Las Vegas announces new recycling program


LAS VEGAS - The Venetian Las Vegas expands Sands ECO360 recycling efforts as the first Las Vegas-based property, and one of the first in the nation, to develop an innovative program to recycle surgical face masks, which are being used by guests and Team Members as part of the resort's Venetian Clean initiatives.

As part of this pilot project, in partnership with TerraCycle, the discarded masks are collected on-site at The Venetian Resort and sent to a recycling facility where they are separated, shredded and densified into a crumb-like raw material. This material will be used to make repurposed products such as composite lumber for shipping pallets, railroad ties and composite decking.

"Our responsibility to the planet is one of our company's core values," stated George Markantonis, president and COO of The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. "Our Sands ECO360 global sustainability initiative was designed to help minimize our environmental impact, and it reflects our vision as a leader in sustainable resort operations. We continue our journey to a more sustainable future as we seek innovative environmental solutions."

"At TerraCycle, our mission has always been to eliminate waste, recycle the unrecyclable and use our innovative business solutions to minimize human impact on the planet," said TerraCycle Founder and CEO Tom Szaky. "It's through partnerships like the one we enjoy with The Venetian Resort that allows us to fulfill our objective and help preserve the environment for future generations."

Since re-opening in June, The Venetian Resort began diverting discarded surgical face masks from other waste being sent to landfills, through an industry-leading trash-sorting initiative that takes place on property.

In addition to this program, the resort actively sorts its trash, diverting 27 types of items that would otherwise be sent to landfills. Through this program, between 55-60 percent of waste is diverted from local landfills, a number that far surpasses the national average of 32 percent, or the state average of 23 percent.

"As a company that has put sustainability in the forefront of our operation, it was important to find a recycling solution for this PPE, to avoid sending them to our landfills," continued Markantonis.

This project, part of the company's Sands ECO360 initiative, will help provide "proof of concept" for such recycling, to encourage others to replicate the program. Currently, consumer masks are not recycled through main-stream or curbside recycling programs, due to the complexity of the recycling process. Surgical face masks are made of a multitude of materials, and need to be sorted and separated before recycling. In addition a magnet is used to separate the metal nose strips, which can melted and utilized in other recycled materials.

Second WSOP bracelet win for Helppi


The 2020 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events have crowned their second champion of the festival and it was high stakes poker legend Juha Helppi that doubled his gold bracelet tally in Event #35 $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship after defeating Jesus Cortes in heads-up. Both central Europeans seemed unfazed from fatigue despite their heads-up duel wrapping up at nearly 6 a.m. local time in Finland and 5 a.m. in Andorra respectively, and it was Helppi that claimed the lion's share of the $1,558,000 prize pool after topping a field of 328 entries.

Helppi had to wait a long time for his maiden WSOP victory after being present in televised poker for a long time and it came last year in Las Vegas when he took down Event #72 $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship for $306,622. The top prize for his second triumph in as many years was worth $290,286 while former EPT Barcelona runner-up Cortes had to settle for $213,270.

Once the nicknames were turned into real names for all nine finalists, Helppi's countryman Jens Kyllonen was also revealed. The PLO specialist was one of two further players with a WSOP bracelet to their name along with Brazil's Yuri Dzivielevski. Kyllonen played a vital role in the early stages of the final table by sending three opponents to the rail but eventually had to settle for 5th place.

Alex Difelice was one of Kyllonen's victims and confirmed his hot streak on the virtual felt in the last few months with yet another deep run. The Canadian was part of a three-way deal in the 2020 SCOOP Main Event and also claimed a WSOP Circuit ring during the previous festival on the GGnetwork after topping a huge field of 2,614 entries in the $1,000 PLO Main Event under his moniker "rubbherducky".

The action kicked off with more than 70 players in their seats and that number grew by the minute. Especially towards the end of the late registration and re-entry period, plenty of big names appeared and vanished without anything to show for. Jesus Cortes emerged as one of the chip leaders when he hit a one outer for quads soon after and the eliminations kept coming at a rapid pace

Third WSOP bracelet win for McKeehen


On Tuesday night, the 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Event #14: $3,200 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller attracted 368 players who rebought 128 times. The 496-entry field generated a $1,507,840 prize pool, and after 14 hours of play, it was 2015 WSOP Main Event champ Joe McKeehen coming out on top to win a $352,985.34 first-place prize and his third career gold bracelet.

Five years ago, McKeehen etched his name in poker history by topping a field of 6,420 players to win the Main Event for $7,683,346. Two years later, he showed just why he's one of the best in the world by taking down the 2017 WSOP Event #38: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship for $311,817. Now he's a three-time bracelet winner joining players like David "Chip" Reese, Dewey Tomko, and Lyle Berman – all Poker Hall of Famers.

McKeehen played a patient game at the final table, carefully biding his time and picking his spots. In fact, he didn't notch a final table elimination until the last one.

After Chris "camdi" Ferguson bubbled in 64th place, the in-the-money finishes included Maria "bluerat" Konnikova (56th - $6,031.36), Ryan "protential" Laplante (29th - $8,293.12), Loren "BabyJesus" Klein (18th - $11,459.58), Event #12 champ Ryan "joeyisamush" Depaulo (16th - $11,459.58), Minnesota Poker Hall of Famer Blake "CheeetahGirl" Bohn (15th - $14,022.91), and final table bubble boy Dave "Dunningkrugr" Alfa (9th - $22,316.03).

Clayton "nevarlucky" Maguire, who in 2016 won the second-ever WSOP online bracelet (Event #66: $1,000 WSOP.com Online NLH) for $210,279, began the final table as chip leader and the hope of becoming the first-ever two-time online bracelet winner.

David "newjerz05" Jackson was the first final table casualty after four-betting jamming king-queen suited only to run them into the pocket aces of Lee "SoccerDJ" Vlastaris, who in turn busted Nathan "innate9" Russler in seventh place ace-queen against ace-five.

Unfortunately for Maguire, he saw his lead evaporate as the blinds went up. He would eventually try to steal from the small blind with jack-three suited but Frank "thewholefunk" Funaro defended with ace-seven, which held to dispatch the bracelet winner in sixth place.

Vlastaris was next to go after his jack-ten failed to overcome Funaro's ace-three, and then Zhi Hong "Jaydestar17" Huang busted after defending the big blind, flopping middle pair, and running into the pocket tens of Funaro. A couple of hands later Funaro won a race with pocket sixes against Roland "prngls12" Israelashvili's ace-nine. Israelashvili, who was at his second final table of the series, had to settle for third place and $148,975 in prize money.

The heads-up match was a battle of New Jersey players with Funaro holding 9.1 million to McKeehen's 3.2 million. The former Main Event champ used his experience to seize the chip lead and close the deal when Funaro three-bet jammed with seven-six suited and McKeehen called with ace-nine. Funaro failed to catch and had to settle for second place and $219,089 in prize money.

UK casinos planning to reopen 1 August


The U.K. Government’s decision to give the green light to casinos to reopen in England has been welcomed by the industry standards body the Betting and Gaming Council as a major boost for the tourism and hospitality sector.

The trade body has urged the devolved administrations to "show their hands" and end the uncertainty for the 2,000 employees who work in Scottish and Welsh casinos who still have no end to lockdown in sight.

The Prime Minister today confirmed that casinos in England can re-open on 1 August after more than four months in lockdown.

Casinos in England employ more than 12,000 people and contribute nearly £300 million in tax to the Exchequer. Casinos also play a vital role in the tourism economy contributing nearly £4 million a week.

The BGC has been working with members to persuade the government to give casinos the go ahead to reopen.

The betting and gaming industry – which employs over 70,000 people across the U.K. and contributes over £3 billion a year to the Treasury – have introduced a range of strict COVID safety measures which have already seen betting shops and bingo halls re-open and now casinos in England will follow soon.

Betting and Gaming Council Chief Executive Michael Dugher said:
“After four long months of lockdown, it’s fantastic to see casinos will reopen safely for business again on 1 August. I am delighted that they can now play their part in supporting the recovery of the tourism and hospitality sector.

“BGC casino members went the extra mile to meet strict COVID guidelines some weeks ago but were left in the dark as to when they would be allowed to reopen. I’d like to thank DCMS Secretary of State Oliver Dowden, Minister Nigel Huddleston and the many cross-party MPs who supported us and worked hard to secure a reopening date.

“Britain’s casinos employ thousands of people and pay millions in tax, and they were one of the few remaining leisure and hospitality businesses to remain closed.

“The uncertainty has been awful for the 12,000 people who work in casinos in England and we now call on Scottish and Welsh governments to follow suit and permit casinos to reopen without delay. The devolved administrations owe it to the 2,000 employees who work in Scottish and Welsh casinos to end this uncertainty and help them return to work.”

First gold bracelet of WSOP 2020 is awarded


The 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Bracelet Events kicked off on WSOP.com Wednesday afternoon with Event #1: $500 No-Limit Hold'em Kickoff. The tournament attracted 1,195 runners who rebought 520 times to create a 1,715-entry field and $771,750 prize pool.

For much of the tournament, all eyes were on Phil "Lumestackin" Hellmuth as he made a run at bracelet No. 16, but he eventually fell by the wayside two spots shy of the final table. Down the stretch, it was Ohio's Jonathan "Art.Vandelay" Dokler who sped to the finish line to capture the title for $130,425.75 and his first gold bracelet.

Prior to the victory, Dokler had $105,159 in live tournament earnings, nearly all of which came when he won the Borgata Winter Poker Open $5,100 High Roller back in January for $100,829. Two months later, he won the WSOP.com Online Super Circuit Series Event #9: $150,000 GTD NLH Monster Stack 2x Re-entry for $77,910 and his first WSOPC gold ring.

After Darren Elias bubbled the tournament in 249th place – the result of losing a flip with ace-king to the pocket fives of Shawn "SayGoodNight" Daniels – the in-the-money finishes came quick and included Taylor "gambol_time" Howard (26th - $3,935.92), Mike "mouth123" Matusow (44th - $2,623.95), Clayton "clayfletch" Fletcher (64th - $1,620.67), David "davedadonk" Gutfreund (76th - $1,466.32), Alex "RIP_Neiko" Rocha (95th - $1,157.62), Jesse "MrJesseJames" Sylvia (137th - $1,003.27), Katie "Katelin" Lindsay (149th - $1,003.27), Melisa "NJ_Melisa" Singh (173rd - $926.10), and poker lawyer Maurice "Mac" VerStandig (196th - $771.75).

As mentioned earlier, Hellmuth was the center of attention for a good part of the tournament, including when he took the chip lead with just two tables left. Unfortunately, a bad run of cards combined with some lost flips in crucial spots led to his demise in 11th place.

In his final hand, Hellmuth three-bet jammed his last 21 big blinds preflop holding pocket queens against Daniels, who had opened with ace-king. Daniels called and promptly flopped a king to take a commanding lead. Hellmuth failed to get lucky and just like that the fireworks fizzled.

At the final table, Dokler began to amass chips with approximately six players remaining and contended with WPT commentator Tony "Panoramic" Dunst, who was the last bracelet winner in the field. Dokler ended up notching four eliminations at the final table, including the last two.

Summer flights continue to increase at Las Vegas


Since the reopening of Las Vegas casino-resorts on 4 June, sustained demand from tourists seeking to return to Southern Nevada has led airline partners at McCarran International Airport to increase their flight schedules in the coming months.

At the lowest point of travel during the pandemic, McCarran saw only 110 scheduled arrivals for a single day. In May, the top 10 domestic carriers at LAS combined to average 145 scheduled arrivals per day. In June that total rose to nearly 200, and in July it will be in excess of 280 per day. By August, scheduled daily air arrivals into Las Vegas is slated to increase to more than 330. This increase in scheduling will continue to expand access from across the nation. Currently, 55 markets enjoy daily, nonstop service into LAS.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority reports more than 230 hotels – including Bellagio, Caesars Palace, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, The Venetian Las Vegas, Wynn Las Vegas, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa & Casino, The Orleans and The D Las Vegas – reopened during June. Before the end of July, properties accounting for 125,000 total local guest rooms are expected to be open.

“McCarran International Airport is at the forefront of the Las Vegas comeback story,” said Rosemary Vassiliadis, Clark County Director of Aviation. “The significant investment in increased scheduling shows the confidence our airline partners have in travelers’ demand to return to our incredible destination, and it underscores the hard work being done to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 here at the airport.”

“The reopening of Las Vegas was stronger than we expected,” said Steve Hill, CEO and president of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “We greatly appreciate our airline partners recognizing the demand by investing in increased flights as we continue to open up additional casino-resorts and attractions, and welcome our visitors back.”
