by Joseph Smith Sr.

George Danzer will be enjoying his journey back to Germany with at least one WSOP gold championship bracelet and $294,792 in his pocket.  After having made eight WSOP final tables and cashed in ten events Danzer finally has a WSOP bracelet and a championship.

WSOP event #18 was the first $10K buy-in razz tournament ever on the schedule and attracted a crowd of 112 entrants, mostly pros.  A prize pool of $1,052,800 was offered to the top 16 finishers which included well known professional poker players Daniel Negreanu, Hoyt Corkins, Nick Schulman, and David Bach.

When the final table was down to the final two head-up players it was George Danzer facing chip leader and 2014 WSOP event #3 champion, Brandon Shack-Harris.  The two traded the lead stack until  George Danzer begin to pull away and finally had an 8-1 chip advantage.  After that Danzer went on cruise control and within a few hands had all the chips and the championship.

Brandon Shack-Harris will be adding $182,155 to his previous winnings in event #3 after his runner-up finish in today's Seven Card Razz Championship

The following lists the final table order of finish and prize money paid out to each player.

WSOP Branding Machine Part One: Players are the Stars

by Wendeen H. Eolis

Effel / Eolis / Stewart Confer at WSOPHours before the curtain rose on the 45th annual World Series of Poker, last minute wrangling amongst the collaborators was at a fever pitch. Behind the scenes, the organizers and the operator of the fabled tournament were still debating the planned theatrics to open the festivities. Time was running out to settle the latest tiff among the organizers. Players are rarely aware of the internal machinations, but they are often caught, unwittingly, in the cross hairs of the competing entities. In this case, a bit of free money was in the mix. The players were victorious!

Corporate Structure Creates Madness

Welcome to the world of complex corporate relationships that thrive on poker’s biggest stage. At the WSOP the customer is the buyer and the product.  The corporate maze of Caesars Entertainment (Caesars) and its related businesses is even more complicated. Here, you cannot tell the players without a scorecard.

A thumbnail sketch of the inter-connected cast of characters that impact on your experience at the WSOP follows: the WSOP is owned by Caesars Interactive Entertainment ("CIE"), which is a subsidiary of Caesars Growth Partners, LLC, ("Caesars Growth") which is a joint venture between Caesars Acquisition Company (“CAC”) and Caesars Entertainment Corporation (“Caesars”). The Rio All Suites Hotel which operates the WSOP is wholly owned by Caesars.

And—Caesars holds the controlling shares of Caesars Growth; 58%. 42% of the shares is owned by CAC. Mitch Garber is the CEO of Caesars Growth Partners, CAQ and CIE and has a notable equity interest in the businesses he oversees. Garber sums up for me a crucial point in these entangled connections: "The WSOP has no economic interest in the Rio, but the Rio has an economic interest in the WSOP."

For those who crave a more finite understanding of these relationships or further details that make more sense of the fancy structure, you are on your own! For the rest of us, suffice to say that the WSOP branding machine and the Rio operating team have natural reasons to lock horns as each seeks to pursue their own respective interests in the course of their collaborations.

2014 WSOP Event #16 $1,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball

by Joseph Smith Sr.
 

Todd BuiTodd Bui enjoyed a number of firsts in his life , all occurring within a few hours on Saturday at the WSOP being played at the Rio Las Vegas.  The Sacramento, California player, now relocated to Los Angeles where poker rooms are much more numerous and he can also be closer to his poker mentor, well respected J.C.Tran.

When Bui took his seat at the final table of WSOP event #16, Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball, he had the second shortest chip stack.  Bui didn't see that as an impossible barrier but rather as a challenge to produce hands and stack chips.  And that's exactly what he did.  Most fans would never guess this was his first real poker tournament.  Todd Bui survived a field of 348 players to win his first WSOP gold bracelet and he collected his first tournament money, $124,510, from the prize purse totaling $469,800.

Heads-up he faced a poker veteran that has played many tournaments and enjoyed much success, Captain Tom Franklin.  Like we said, Todd Bui had a day of many firsts.

2014 WSOP Event #11 $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed

 

by Joseph Smith Sr.

Justin Bonomo collected almost half a million dollars and his first WSOP bracelet that certainly helps him forget that 2nd place finish in the Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Championship event a few days ago.  
 

Bonomo begin heads-up play with second place finisher, Mike Sowers, looking at a 4-1 chip disadvantage, but after one level of play Bonomo had pulled even with Sowers.  Using the momentum swing to his advantage, Justin Bonomo never looked back and within the hour he had all the chips and his first World Series of Poker bracelet.

The $1,500 buy-in event attracted 1,587 players and offered a prize pool of $2,142,450.  Justin Bonomo returns home to Glendale, Colorado with $449,980 for his winning finish.  Mike Sowers of Charlotte, North Carolina takes away $278,518 as first runner-up.     

The following lists the final table six players order of finish and money won.
 

  1. Justin Bonomo ------ $449,980

  2. Mike Sowers -------- $278,518
