Weekly Flop: Newhouse Ninth Again, Lederer at HOF Ceremony, Elias’ WPT Record

One year after being crushed by his ninth-place finish in the WSOP Main Event, Mark Newhouse got a second chance at poker glory. Unfortunately, the result was the same and even more heartbreaking… Howard Lederer has wisely kept a low profile in the three and a half years after Black Friday. But he made a surprising appearance at the 2014 Poker Hall of Fame ceremony… It’s hard to keep up with the WPT, considering all of the Main Event final table hoopla. But it’s worth discussing how Darren Elias set a big WPT record in this edition of the Weekly …

WSOP Main Event Final Table Set

Posted on by RTR Rachel

After nearly two grueling weeks, the biggest poker tournament in the world has finally played down to a final table.  The 2010 November Nine was set when Brandon Stevens figured his poker odds were better than anyone else’s and went all-in with A-K.  Unfortunately for Stevens, Matthew Jarvis used some no-brainer poker strategy in calling Stevens’ all-in bet with pocket queens.  The board didn’t help Stevens at all, and he was eliminated in 10th place with a measly $635,011 prize.  With Stevens gone, the WSOP Main Event final table is now set with the following players: 1.

Another Full Tilt player in Justin “Boosted J” Smith had the good fortune of playing for the title against Moritz Kranich.  Smith was at …
