Jimmy's Boat Gets Steve's Chips


The devil of a flop ended up costing Steve Foutty all his chips in Level 12 on Day 1A of the $100,000 guaranteed Action8.

Foutty led out on the 6-6-6 flop and Jimmy Zeledon called.
Foutty led out on the 5 turn and Zeledon called.
Foutty shoved on the 2 river and Zeledon snap-called, turning over Sevens for a boat. Foutty's QTo went to the muck and the 200,000-plus pot went to Zeledon.

With their 1st and 4th place finishes in today's $160 HORSE, Mike Postle and Matt Boddorf moved in to the top 3 in the race to become the 2017 Ante Up Player of the Series.

Mason Rosenberg leads with 250 points, Postle is in 2nd with 182 and Boddorf is 3rd at 170.

There are three events left - the $100,000 guaranteed Action8 that should award 148 points to the winner (if the event plays out to its finish), a $160 PLO and the final qualifying event, the $400 Head-to-Head Championship with another 125 points to the winner.

The Series Title is far from over. If Rosenberg does not cash in Action8, any one in the top 75 right now can move past him with an outright Action8 win.

Growing the Game of Poker


At a $160 price point, the HORSE tourney here today not only provided seasoned mixed-game players with a chance to enjoy tourneys they are familiar with, but also an opening to introduce more players to Omaha, Stud and Razz.

There were 70 entries today as both vets and relative newcomers showed there's more to poker tournaments than just Hold'em.

Today's field is now in the money, including TVPokerRoom Ambassador Tyler Patterson,  former TVPokerRoom HORSE champ Mike Postle, Bill Watchman and HORSE newcomer Matt Boddorf. Boddorf is playing his first non-Hold'em-exclusive tournament.

With HORSE tourneys as part of the regular monthly schedule here at TVPokerRoom - and added to many full tournament series as well - the number of entries for HORSE, Omaha, PLO and more continue to grow.

5 Cashes for Series Leader Rosenberg


Sunday's $160 Bounty marked the 5th time in 10 2017 Ante Up Worlds events where Reno's Mason Rosenberg finished in the money.

Rosenberg - and everyone who cashes in Ante Up Worlds Events 1-14 - earns Player of the Series points that can turn in to a $500,000 Guaranteed Ante Up World Championship seat and more.

Bonus points are awarded for additional cashes in the series, and Rosenberg has maxxed out on the Bonus Points, up to the top tier of 25 extra points for each cash.

He's up to 250 points, a decent distance clear of the field, but every player in the top 13 can move to the Top-of-the-Leaderboard with a victory in one of the final four qualifying tournaments.
