Simon Webster comes off ropes, takes down RGPS Downstream Casino

The RunGood Old West Poker Series (RGPS) ran from December 4-9 and was a huge success, especially the Main Event. The events were held at Downstream Casino Resort in Quapaw, Oklahoma and the Main Event proved to be a huge draw. It set an attendance record for the casino, attracting 386 entries. That crushed the former record of 344 that was set four and a half years ago. In the Simon Webster comes off the ropes to take down the RGPS Downstream Casino eventend, a surprise performance by a player out of Texas showed that poker is still anyone’s game Dewa Poker 88.

Simon Webster took down RunGood Ambassador Daniel Lowery to win the Main Event and pocket the top prize of $44,391. Webster has a number of strong finishes this year – including ten final table appearances and one championship win – but this win was by far his best. He turned on the afterburners at just the right time to overcome a major deficit that, for anyone else, would have signaled sure defeat.

When he made it to the final heads-up battle,

Webster found himself against Lowery in a very precarious position. He was protecting a stack of only 915,000 chips, while his opponent was comfortable with 6,805,000 chips. It was all uphill from there.

Webster was able to secure a few small pots to give him an extra boost of energy. He then doubled up when he picked up a set that turned into a boat on the river. He moved all in and, perhaps thinking a bluff was in the cards, Lowery called. Webster had now increased his stack to 2.125 million in chips.

A mere 30 minutes later,

Webster pulled off another impressive win. He doubled up once again when his AK was too strong for Lowery’s A-J and the board gifted him with 9-5-5-A-3. Now, Webster added another 2.285 million in chips to his count.

On the final hand, Webster showed why he was the winner. Both players were betting slowly when the flop came J-8-6. Webster limped in, only to have Lowery raise about 2.5 times the amount. Webster called and the turn revealed a 4. At this point, Webster only checked, but Lowery wasn’t going to slow down. He moved all-in and Webster immediately called.

The eventual winner had scored a straight, and a possible diamond straight-flush draw, and sat in a powerful position. Lowery was playing with just a pair and the hopes of pulling off a miracle with a river card that might give him the straight as well, but a 2 secured his fate, forcing him to settle for second place and $27,406.

partypoker MILLIONS to host four $10k freezeouts in revamped 2019 schedule

partypoker make wholesale changes to the MILLIONS product including replacing re-entry events with freezeouts, dropping the name ‘Caribbean Poker Party’, and offering a brand new experience in Rio De Janeiro Raja Poker.

It’s not as if they had a flat tyre.

partypoker MILLIONS to host four $10k freezeouts in revamped 2019 scheduleIf No-Limit Hold’em is the Cadillac of poker, then in 2018 partypoker has been the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, but it hasn’t stopped the pit workers from making wholesale changes for 2019 and beyond.

It began, two months ago, in a Rob Yong blog post called Random Comments, when the Dusk till Dawn (DTD) owner, and left lung of the partypoker revolution, declared his romanticism for the Freezeout format.

Quoting Yong:

“I remember playing the original EPTs, the excitement sitting down at the start with hundreds of other hopefuls and famous faces, hearing ‘shuffle up and deal’ – the relief when I swerved an opponent’s nut flush draw, knocking out a top pro and him really being ‘out’, the feeling of accomplishment making day 2, chatting at the bar with friends about all the hands I played and the anticipation of getting a good table draw on Day 2.

“Apart from the WSOP Main Event, most players don’t experience this nowadays, you can wander in anytime and register, if you have deep pockets or are staked you don’t worry about busting, and you can easily make Day 2 – just skip Day 1 and buy-in on Day 2! You don’t often get seated with a famous player as they tend to late reg, sometimes you can start with less than 10% of the field, and it must be soul destroying to bust Fedor Holz and have to bust him again…and again!”

Well, those inkblots have become a reality.


During an interview with John Duthie, the partypoker LIVE President responded to a question on the future with some revelatory insights. Although in truth, had I looked hard enough; I would have found them lying around on the partypoker blog like German beach towels on a sun lounger.

“If you ever need a researcher, give me a shout,” winked Duthie.

There will be four MILLIONS events in 2019.

MILLIONS South America, Copacabana Palace Hotel, – 16-24 Mar 2019.

MILLIONS North America, PPC Montreal – 22-27 May 2019

MILLIONS Europe, Casino Barcelona – 10-18 Aug 2019

MILLIONS World Bahamas, 9-16 Nov 2019.

The Picasso in each event will be a $10,300 buy-in, $5m Guaranteed MILLIONS Main Event. The MILLIONS Grand Final in Barcelona is defunct, as is the $25,000 buy-in MILLIONS World. Instead, a smaller buy-in MILLIONS World ($10,300) will become the new Grand Final of sorts carrying a $10m Guarantee (The new event replaces the Caribbean Poker Party, but continues to take place at the Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas).

As John Duthie said:

“Players seem to prefer freezeouts, so the intention is for headline MILLIONS events to now be 10K (local currency) freezeouts combined with an appealing schedule of side events. So no more re-buys and no more multiple starting days. Just pure and simple like the old days. Rio De Janeiro in March 2019 is going to be just incredible.”

I think he’s right.

Given how much the Brazilians love the game I expect the MILLIONS tournament in Rio to be one of the events of the year, and here are the schedule highlights.

$1,100 Open

$10,300 High Roller

$5,300 Pot-Limit Omaha

$25,000 Super High Roller

$350 Ladies Event

$5,300 Six-Max Turbo

Qualification for these events will be a combination of PPLive$ and online satellite qualification.

There will also be partypoker Grand Prix events and the events organised in partnership with the WPT and WSOP.

The WPT and WSOP Pick Up The Slack

WPT Russia, Casino Sochi – 13-27 Jan, 2019

WPT Barcelona, Casino Barcelona – 3-17 Mar, 2019

WSOPC Russia, Casino Sochi – 14-28 Jul, 2019

Not bad for a concept that began with a 4 am discussion over a few beers between Yong and his right arm, Simon Trumper.

Simon Higgins Wins the partypoker Sunday Super High Roller; Trickett Hands Out Mosconi Cup

Moving from the live realm to the virtual one, and Simon “Fren96” Higgins had a profitable weekend winning the $2,600 buy-in $200k GTD Sunday Super High Roller.

Higgins blasted 93-entrants out of the water to secure the $62,275 first prize, the most significant sum of money he has ever won playing in a tournament on partypoker, and his fourth largest of an online career that has seen him win $1.9m.

A New Role For Trickett

Finally, if the poker action dries up, Sam Trickett could have another career as a trophy presenter.

The #1 All-Time Live Tournament Money Earner in the UK presented Team USA with the Mosconi Cup after the men from the land of guns, funny looking Presidents and huge meals beat Team Europe for the first time since 2009 in pool’s version of the Ryder Cup.
