Daily news from poker and online poker world

Sasha Salinger breaks down all the gossip, feuds, and intrigue from poker social media. First up, MIke Matusow calls out Maria Ho for not knowing correct poker terminology. But is it really Matusow who gets it wrong? I'm sure you can correctly guess the answer to that question. Next up, poker's favorite "over-share" couple (Daniel Negreanu and Amanda Leatherman) does just that. Lastly, elite poker player Jason Koon writes and releases a profound, honest blog post about the toll high stakes poker can take on even the most disciplined players. You can read that blog post below: https://problog.partypoker.com/author/jasonk?wm=4644300&source=Social&c=JOURNEY_JASON&utm_source=Social&utm_campaign=Jason&utm_medium=teampartypoker&utm_content=Jason

Sasha Salinger rounds up all the latest poker news. First up, the World Poker Tour held three final tables of three different events at the Hyper X eSports Arena at the Luxor Casino in Las Vegas. Last Monday, Poker player Darren Elias was stopped from getting his FIFTH World Poker Tour title. Instead, it was poker player David "ODB" Baker who took home over $1 million first place prize at the World Poker Tour Los Angeles Poker Classic. Last Tuesday, the entertaining, jovial Stephen Stepuchin won the WPT Gardens tournament for just over $500K. In the last filmed final table, it was Viny Lima who won the WPT Borgata Winter Open. Our last piece of news, also comes out of Las Vegas. After this video was filmed, the LVPD released the name of the attempted Bellagio poker room robber. Michael Charles Cohen robbed the Bellagio poker room last week and was caught and shot by police while attempting to carjack a car at the North Valet. He died later of injuries sustained during that shooting. The LVPD later confirmed that Cohen was the same suspect who robbed the Bellagio Poker Room back in 2017.

The Triton High Roller Series wrapped up last week in Jeju, South Korea. Highlights from the series included Jason Koon winning the short-deck ante-only tournament for $2,840,945. This win brings his total short-deck tournament winnings to just over $6.3 million. Short-deck poker is a variant played with 36 cards instead of the regular 52. The 2's, 3', 4's, and 5's are taken out of the deck, so the lowest card in play is a 6.
