Poe Won't be Hooked by Safaya

Bobby Poe
Bobby Poe

Blinds 200/400/50

Bobby "Katie1972" Poe opened under the gun for 1,000 and had one caller before Christopher "Mufasa5000" Safaya three-bet to 4,700 from the big blind.

Only Poe called and the two players saw a {4-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop appear. Safaya continued for 8,287 and then called the 22,750 all in raise from Poe.

Bobby "Katie1972" Poe: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Christopher "Mufasa5000" Safaya: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Both players held made hands but Poe was well ahead with his ladies and neither the {2-Clubs} turn nor the {9-Clubs} river changed a thing as he collected his double.

Watch Every Final Table of the 2021 WSOP Online Events on the PokerNews Twitch Channel

Through August 3rd, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) will begin hosting daily online gold bracelet events on WSOP.com. There will be 33 bracelets awarded over 32 days, and PokerNews is excited to announce we’ll not only be live reporting all the action but also offering poker fans daily live streams.

Every day, viewers at home will have access to watching the biggest names hunt for bracelets. In conjunction with PokerNews, Jeff Platt will host early action from each tournament at twitch.tv/jeffplatt, starting around the money bubble each day and taking players all the way to the final table.

“I am thrilled to team up with PokerNews to present coverage of the 2021 WSOP Online,” said Platt, who is a co-host of the PokerNews Podcast. “We learned last year that the prestige of bracelet events draws an incredibly passionate audience on Twitch. I can’t wait to interact with that audience again as we crown poker’s newest champions.”

After Platt’s streams, coverage will then shift to twitch.tv/pokernews where PokerNews’ own Jesse Fullen will cover final table action alongside a rotating cast of co-hosts including Alec Torelli, Ryan Laplante, Jesse Sylvia, KL Cleeton, Rampage Poker, and Jaman Burton, among others. The streams will also be featured on YouTube and Facebook.

“WSOP Online will certainly be the biggest online series of the year in the USA. We’re thrilled PokerNews has again stepped up to provide fans a way to follow the action,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the WSOP. “Jeff Platt’s personal streams were a highlight of last year’s online series and we have no doubt the PokerNews final table streams will be an entertaining watch.”

Ye "yuan365" Yuan Looking For Another Big Summer of Online Fun

Ye Yuan
Ye Yuan

Ye "yuan365" Yuan, also known as Tony Yuan, has a tiny amount of cashes on his Hendon Mob profile, with just $6,774 in career tournament earnings outside of one particularly big outlier. Yuan, a Ph.D Candidate of Mathematics and Probability at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, overcame the odds and made the final table of the 2020 WSOP $10,000 Main Event, after pushing through a field of 705 entrants.

“I still can’t believe it." Yuan told PokerNews about his run to the final table. "I don’t know how I made it, but someone I did. I was quite lucky to have some big hands. I won a coinflip when short-stacked with pocket nines against my opponent’s ace-jack offsuit." Yuan also was confident in the transition to the live final table, as opposed to online, saying, "I’m a live guy. I think my live play is better than my online play. I can read people.”

Yuan finally succumbed in fifth-place, losing a flip with ace-ten to the pocket fours of Joseph Hebert, but the $286,963 payday certainly helped put a big dent in his college tuition. Now, with another summer of online events waiting, Yuan will be looking to make another deep run payoff in similar fashion.

Marziotto Sets Up Coleman


Blinds 140/280/35

Dennis "DentheZen14" Coleman raised to 675 from middle position and Robert "Marz5223" Marziotto called from the small blind. When the flop fell {3-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{k-Clubs}, Marziotto bet 1,860 and Coleman called.

On the {j-Spades} turn, Marziotto bet 5,580 and Coleman called again.

After the {a-Spades} appeared on the river, Marziotto bet 16,740 and then called when Coleman jammed for 25,549 total.

Dennis "DentheZen14" Coleman: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Robert "Marz5223" Marziotto: {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}

Coleman had flopped a flush draw that turned into two pair, but it was no good as Marziotto had a set of threes.

Krista Gifford
Krista Gifford

Blinds 100/200/25

A series of preflop raises saw Joseph "jodoggy" Ordille six-bet jam for 49,231 on the button and Krista "Pollux" Gifford called off her 37,571 stack from the big blind.

Krista "Pollux" Gifford: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
Joseph "jodoggy" Ordille: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Gifford was well ahead of Ordille and the {3-Spades}{j-Spades}{j-Diamonds} flop didn't change a thing.

The {3-Diamonds} turn made things interesting as it brought possible chop outs but luckily for Gifford, the {9-Clubs} river secured her double-up.

Belz Finds Lady Luck on the River

Ryan Belz
Ryan Belz

Blinds 80/160

A series of preflop raises saw Ryan "Lovemy11cats" Belz jam for 37,155 from late position and Kathryn "azulciel" Cappuccio called from the cutoff.

Ryan "Lovemy11cats" Belz: {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Kathryn "azulciel" Cappuccio: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

Cappuccio had Belz crushed and nothing changed after the {j-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop.

The {3-Spades} turn paired the board and Cappuccio was looking good until the {q-Hearts} river gave Belz a full house for the double.

Richards Fails to Connect and Opts to Re-Enter


Blinds 80/160

Darren "darrenelias" Elias raised to 350 from early position and "VegasBlaize" called from the cutoff. Adam "shakusky" Richardson, who had just 1,838, called from the button, both blinds folded, and the flop came down {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}.

Two checks saw Richardson move in for 1,488 and Elias called. "VegasBlaize" then woke up with a check-raise to 3,456 and Elias got out of the way.

Adam "shakusky" Richardson: {8-Spades}{7-Spades}
"VegasBlaize": {10-Clubs}{a-Clubs}

Richardson had an open-ended straight draw, which he needed to hit as "VegasBlaize" had top pair. Unfortunately for Richardson, neither the {6-Clubs} turn nor {10-Hearts} river helped him and he was left to re-enter the tournament.
