Danzer wins 3rd bracelet, Ivey guilty in U.K.

  • Phil Ivey has lost the case against Crockfords Casino. Whether he will appeal? Also, in Melbourne George Danzer has won his 3rd WSOP bracelet and took the lead in POTY race.

  • George Danzer takes down WSOP APAC event, leads POTY

    Several poker players this year have given an incredible performance including Daniel Colman, Brandon Shack Harris and George Danzer who has won another WSOP event this year.

    Just a few days ago Danzer finished sixth in $1.650 Dealer’s Choice event. It didn’t seem enough for the German. In the Event #8 $5,000 8-Game Mix he managed to beat 47 players and win his 3rd WSOP bracelet. For his efforts he took down $84,600 from a total prizepool of $225,600.

    This, of course means that Danzer takes the lead in the Player of the Year race while Brandon Shack Harris has only two events left to win POTY race – WSOP Main Event and $25k High Roller.

    The battle is far from over. Especially because just today Danzer has been eliminated from the WSOP Main event while Harris has advanced to the Day 3 of the event.

    WSOP APAC underway with planet of big names

    Speaking of the Main Event, Day 2 has just finished. The event that last year brought Daniel Negreanu his fifth WSOP bracelet, this year has shrunk significantly. From 405 players in 2013 to 329 this year and generated a prizepool just over $3 million.

    Among confirmed Day 2 eliminations there are Phil Hellmuth, Greg Merson, last year’s final tablist Russel Thomas, Fabian Quoss. On a happier note, leading the pack is Jackie Glazer with 420,000 chips. Also advancing to the Day 3 are Brian Rast, Shane Warne, Johnathan Duhamel and 74 other contenders.

    Phil Ivey found guilty in case against Crockfords

    Just after we posted last week’s news, an announcement was released that High Court in London has ruled against Phil Ivey. Judge John Mitting said that edge sorting, a technique that Phil Ivey used to win $12.4 million at Punto Banco at Crockfords Casino constituted as cheating.

    Phil Ivey’s attorneys can still renew the case in Court of Appeals. If they choose not to, it probably will mean same outcome in the civil case against Borgata.
