Steve Aoki named World Poker Tour ambassador


Two-time Grammy nominated musician and producer Steve Aoki has joined the World Poker Tour as an ambassador and will play a pivotal role in guiding a full revamp of the WPT for what promises to be a historic 20th anniversary season.

"It's such an honor to be joining the WPT family. I have watched and admired the WPT for many, many years and to now be part of the WPT family; it feels so surreal and I am incredibly grateful,” Aoki said.

Having developed several brands of his own, Aoki’s new role will include helping the WPT raise brand awareness, while collaborating with the WPT as they develop a new look and feel. Aoki will also be engaging with poker fans at a number of World Poker Tour special events throughout 2022.

The Las Vegas-based DJ has a long history with the game of poker. While counting many of the world’s best players as friends, Aoki has also battled alongside them, most notably at the 2021 World Poker Tour Heads-Up Poker Championship.

“The passion and energy in which Steve Aoki approaches every aspect of his life is both inspiring and very much in line with the new vision of the WPT,” said Adam Pliska, World Poker Tour CEO. “Steve’s love of poker and his dedication to inspiring others to live life to the fullest makes him the ideal WPT brand ambassador. We are honored to have him play an active role in our transformation and in the celebration of World Poker Tour’s 20th anniversary.”

In mid-2022, Aoki and the World Poker Tour will partner on an invite-only charity event in Las Vegas to benefit the Aoki Foundation, the charity created by Aoki with a primary goal of supporting organizations in the brain science and research areas, with a specific focus on regenerative medicine and brain preservation. With entrepreneurs, thought-leaders, and global pioneers in attendance, this will be one of the can’t-miss events of the year.

While Aoki first made a name for himself in the world of electronic music, he has since developed into a renowned fashion designer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and NFT futurist. With a social media following of more than 35.2 million, Aoki has a devoted fan base with wide-ranging interests.

WPT Season XX begins in January with the Lucky Hearts Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida. More events will be announced in early 2022.

Ferro wins World Poker Tour Player of the Year

(via twitter)

Jake Ferro, a 32-year-old poker player originally from Syracuse, NY has captured the World Poker Tour Season XIX Player of the Year award by edging out WPT Champions Club members with a deep run in the final event of the season.

“The WPT Player of the Year race came down to the wire and Jake’s determination in the final event makes him a fantastic winner,” said Adam Pliska, World Poker Tour CEO. “It was an exciting way to close out Season XIX and certainly raises the bar for what will be an historic 20th anniversary season.”

Ferro cashed in three WPT events in Season XIX. The highlight of his performance came at the Seminole Rock 'N' Roll Poker Open in November when he outlasted 1,564 other entries before finishing runner-up to Gediminas Uselis. That result earned Ferro $573,605 and 1,200 POY points and set up the exciting finish at the Five Diamond World Poker Classic at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino in December where his 14th place finish earned him 300 more points and propelled him to the top of the leaderboard.

“I’m thrilled to have won WPT Player of the Year for Season XIX and am definitely looking forward to playing more World Poker Tour events in 2022,” said Ferro. “It would have been a dream come true to have etched my name on the Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup, but coming so close only makes me hungrier for the coming season.”

Along with the title, Ferro also earned a WPT Passport worth $15,000 that can be used on any Season XX events. He’ll also receive VIP treatment throughout the upcoming season, with complimentary accommodations and ground transportation at WPT Main Tour events.

Rok Gostisa, Chad Eveslage, and Brian Altman all tied for the second highest point total. Gostisa, who won the WPT World Online Championships Main Event in September, finished as the official runner-up after having won the most money amongst the three, while Eveslage finished in third place. Gostisa earned a $7,500 WPT Passport and Eveslage walked away with a $2,500 WPT Passport.

Albert Knafo earned the WPTDeepStacks North America Player of the Year award on the strength of his victory in the WPTDeepStacks Venetian in July. Knafo received a $10,000 WPT Passport which can be used in any WPT event worldwide. Albert Shainiuk finished just 50 points behind Knafo and won a $3,500 WPT Passport while Jason Young came in third place and won a $1,500 WPT Passport.

Season XX of the World Poker Tour begins later this month with the Lucky Hearts Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and will feature an updated Player of the Year system which will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Holiday gambling news from Las Vegas and Florida


It's our last show of the year, filled with holiday gambling news. We have a coronavirus update from Las Vegas, as well as a sports betting update from Florida and a disturbing report on problem gambling.

We’ve been following Seminole sports betting and Florida for weeks. A Judge ruled the agreement between the two to be ‘invalid’, as it violated the state constitution and the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.After the ruling the Tribe continued with online sports betting and filed a motion for stay pending appeal. The Judge refused to grant them a stay, so they stopped accepting bets. Now it will be up to a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Now DraftKings and FanDuel trying to get voter signatures on a petition to make this issue a ballot measure. Additionally, The Sands Corporation has filed a lawsuit against the Seminoles claiming “tortious interference with business relationships.” In other words, the Sands (along with DraftKings, FanDuel, and others) wants a piece of the sports betting action in Florida.

ALSO... Most people visiting Las Vegas wear their masks how they're supposed to... even out on the Vegas Strip. Now, with the threat of a Las Vegas Omicron surge, the mask mandate is getting an update. The Governor’s policy adviser recently held a press conference where the updated mandate was unveiled. Masks are still required indoors without regard to anyone’s vaccination status. This will remain in effect at least through the winter months, which has traditionally been the worst time for flu. Las Vegas is bracing for Omicron and a surge in coronavirus.

The $10,400 buy-in event, which has been a WPT staple since the first season in 2002, will be the final event of Season XIX. The final table will be filmed for broadcast at the HyperX Esports Arena at Luxor Hotel & Casino, and will air on Bally Sports at a later date.

“The Bellagio holds special significance for the World Poker Tour,” said Adam Pliska, WPT President and CEO. “The Five Diamond World Poker Classic was the first World Poker Tour event, and it seems fitting to finish our current season there before launching our historical 20th season in January.”

The WPT Season XIX Player of the Year race will also conclude at the Bellagio. Through six events this season, there is a three-way tie for first between Brian Altman, Rok Gostisa, and Chad Eveslage with 1,450 points each. WPT Seminole Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open champion Gediminas Uselis is just 50 points behind.

“We are thrilled to be able to finish our season with a showcase event with one of our longest running partners,” said Angelica Hael, WPT VP of Global Tour Management. “From there, we are ready to head into Season XX and put an even bigger spotlight on our partners, our champions, and our tour.”

Starting in Season XX, all WPT seasons will now begin in January and run through December, marking a change from the previous schedule which typically began each spring. The first event on the Season XX calendar is the Lucky Hearts Poker Open which runs 13-26 January at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL.

Gulas Jr. wins World Series of Poker Europe Main Event


The coveted gold bracelet in Event #14: €10,350 WSOPE Main Event will remain on home soil as Josef Gulas Jr. defeated Johan Guilbert in heads-up. In the 2021 edition, a new attendance record for the WSOP Europe Main Event was set as 688 entries created a prize pool of €6,536,000, surpassing the previous record by 95 entries. Only the top 104 spots were paid and Gulas earned the far biggest payday of his career so far and walked away with the top prize of €1,276,712.

He has become the 8th player from the Czech Republic to win a WSOP gold bracelet and more than half of the victories were recorded on home soil. Martin Kabrhel won both of his career bracelets at the King's Casino, which has also been the home casino for Gulas as well.

"It's an incredible feeling. I am truly thankful and happy," an overwhelmed Gulas said in the interview after his victory. "It was a perfect tournament with a very nice structure in the best casino in Europe. Just incredible!"

During the entire festival, he only entered the Opener and then spent the days on the cash game tables while waiting for the Main Event to start, for which he had an entry locked up thanks to his third place finish in the €250 IPS Main Event this past June. He would have entered the Main Event via direct buy-in anyways as the many ticket winners at King's Resort promised a big field but instead did so at a bargain.

"It is something incredible, I would wish it to everyone. Everyone should participate and play in such circumstances, to feel the atmosphere and the feel of the final table," the winner said with regards to the special atmosphere on the live-streamed final table.

When asked what he will do with the money, Gulas was pretty certain he was going to build a house and save the remainder of the money. The 24 year old, who was railed by his family, usually sells cars but a career change may be in order. His father who bears the same name, was right there when everything unfolded and came up a few spots short of the money after bowing out on Day 3.

Runner-up Guilbert, also known under his online moniker "YoH ViraL", has become one of the most popular streamers and vloggers in Europe and padded his bankroll with a consolation prize of €789,031. The Frenchman resides in Malta and recently entered the fray in international High Roller competitions where he notched up six-figure cashes. Two years ago, Guilbert was heads-up for the coveted gold bracelet as well and missed out on the maiden victory in Event #36: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout.

Another three of the final eight players joined eventual champion Gulas in the event thanks to winning an entry to the flagship tournament in competitions with buy-ins below €500. Ilija Savevski earned €125,052 in 8th place, Thomas Denie collected €163,434 for his 7th place and Stanislav Koleno scored a payday of €292,862.

Final Table Results

1 Josef Gulas Jr Czech Republic €1,276,712
2 Johan Guilbert France €789,031
3 Alexander Tkatschew Germany €558,505
4 Athanasios Kidas Greece €401,344
5 Stanislav Koleno Slovakia €292,862
6 Aleksandar Trajkovski Macedonia €217,854
7 Thomas Denie Netherlands €163,434

Third WSOP bracelet goes to Ausmus

(via WSOP)
Just before 4 a.m. PT on Sunday, 21 November, Jeremy Ausmus defeated Phil Hellmuth to capture his third World Series of Poker gold bracelet and second title at the 2021 WSOP. Ausmus topped the 85-entry field in Event #84: $50,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller for a big $1,188,918 score.

“It feels really good,” Ausmus said of winning one of the last WSOP gold bracelets to ever be awarded at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. “My first bracelet was in Europe outside of Paris, so until this year I had never won a bracelet here at the Rio. I’ve had a lot of deep runs, so it’s cool to take a couple down. As long as the WSOP has existed as far as I’ve been a part of it it’s been here. It’ll be interesting to say goodbye to this place.”

Final Table Results

1st: Jeremy Ausmus - $1,188,918
2nd: Phil Hellmuth - $734,807
3rd: Daniel Negreanu - $519,764
