Halpern Doubles through Morishima

MattHansen • Niveau 29: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Rambo Halpern shoved for 1,200,000 and Yutaka Morishima re-shoved to isolate from the next seat over. The rest of the table got out of the way and action was heads-up with Halpern at risk.

Rambo Halpern: {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Yutaka Morishima: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

The board ran out {3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{7-Clubs}{a-Spades} and Halpern made aces and threes to leave Morishima with just a few big blinds.

Christopher McFarland Eliminated in 18th Place ($14,152)

Harrison Ashdown shared details of the hand and proudly stated that he got his money in well behind with {a-}{2-} against the {a-}{10-} of Christopher McFarland. Ashdown spiked a deuce after calling off about 13 big blinds and won the hand. He was at first hesitant to share the hand and initially attempted to trick PokerNews into thinking he made a great play before spilling the beans about the real hand history.

McFarland was noticeably upset at the call made by his opponent following his bust-out hand. He received $14,152 for 18th place.

The 2022 Wynn Millions is a series comprised of 16 events with more than $15 million in guaranteed prize money. There's a tournament for just about any type of poker player — high stakes, mid-stakes, no-limit hold'em, pot-limit Omaha, bounty events, etc. And there are two seniors events for players aged 50 and above — $400 and $1,100.

The series kicked off back on February 21 with the $400 No-Limit Hold’em $40K GTD, a tournament that attracted 313 entries and awarded a $107,985 prize pool to the top 35 finishers.

Among those to cash were Jesse Sylvia (34th - $809), Vivian Kreider (23rd - $1,033), Jack Hardcastle (16th - $1,334), Thi Nguyen (8th - $2,834), and David Poces (4th - $7,483).

The final three players worked a deal that saw Jeff Sluzinski, also known as the popular poker vlogger Jeff Boski, get the most money with $20,000, but it was New Zealand’s Gabriel Jin Goh who claimed the trophy and $17,000 in prize money.

An Gets a Shove Through; Stein Chipping Up

MattHansen • Niveau 28: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Aaron Massey raised to 220,000 from the cutoff and Anthony An spent a few moments thinking it over from the small blind before he three-bet shoved with Massey covered.

The big blind folded and Massey followed him into the muck, giving An the pot without a flop.

Elsewhere at the table, Z Stein has chipped up above the 600K mark and is setting the pace down the home stretch.

David Yokoyama: {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}
Chris Vickery: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

The board ran out {8-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and Yokoyama won a race to double back into a decent sized stack.

A Look Back at Last Year's Brutal "Wynn Millions Massacre" Hand

Chad_Holloway • Niveau 28: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante
Alex Foxen and Bryn Kenney
Alex Foxen and Bryn Kenney

Last summer, the inaugural $10,000 buy-in, $10,000,000 GTD Wynn Millions attracted 1,328 entries over three starting flights, which surpassed the seven-figure guarantee by creating a $12,483,200 prize pool (the largest in Wynn Poker history).

On Day 2ab, 240 players returned with Bryn Kenney, tournament poker's all-time money leader, and his stack 376,500 leading the way. Coming in with the seventh-largest stack of 295,500 was Alex Foxen. Eventually, the latter was moved to the former's table and a hand for the ages would go down.

At the time, Foxen had chipped up into the chip lead ever so slightly over Kenney, who appeared to still be the other big stack in the room. That is when the two poker superstars had a head-on collision.

The hand took place early in Level 12 (1,500/2,500/2,500) when Kenney raised preflop and Foxen called from the hijack. The players on the button and in the big blind came along and it was four-way action to the {a-}{a-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop.

The big blind checked, Kenney continued for 9,000, and only Foxen called to see the turn, which was another {3-}.

Kenney bet again, this time 10,000, and Foxen just called to see a {q-} complete the board on the river.

This time Kenney checked and Foxen over-bet the pot to the tune of 112,000. Kenney woke up with an all-in check-raise to approximately 240,000, and Foxen, who barely had the bigger stack, snap-called.

Kenney tabled {a-}{q-} for aces full of queens, but it was no good as Foxen rolled over {3-}{3-} for quads.

With that, Kenney was eliminated while Foxen pulled in the largest pot of the tournament thus far (by a wide margin) chipping up to 650,000. It was a standout moment in an event that would go on to be nominated for "Event of the Year" at the Global Poker Awards.

Vickrey More than Doubles with Big Slick

• Niveau 28: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Hesam Alagha opened from under the gun to 200,000 and David Yokoyama made the call only to watch Chris Vickrey three-bet to 500,000. Everyone else at the table folded except Alagha and Yokoyama, both of whom called.

The flop came out {6-Spades}{a-Spades}{6-Clubs} and Vickrey bet 850,000 after the two other players checked to him. Alagha folded and Yokoyama made the call. The turn was the {7-Diamonds} and Alagha checked to his opponent who moved all-in for 1.8 million. After brief thought, Alagha made the call.

Chris Vickrey: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
David Yokoyama: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The river was the {q-Hearts} and wrappd up the hand for Vickrey, who won one of the biggest pots of the tournament thus far.
