Notable Information

When the $1K Little One for One Drop NLHE tournament ended on Friday, it was James Anderson of Pennsylvania in the winner’s circle with more than $690K. After many successes in the past, he had taken a break from the game and then resumed play several months ago.

“I feel good now,” Anderson said. “My mind is a lot fresher now, I have a different perspective, and hopefully, it continues. It’s a good start.”

The $1,500 PLO Bounty tournament also wrapped on Friday, and Maximilian Klostermeier of Denmark was its champion for nearly $178K. Remarkably, he has only played professionally for a relatively short time and had little experience with PLO, though he said he worked through confusing situations.

“I feel great, can’t really believe it honestly,” he said. “I’ve only been playing poker professionally for a little over a year now, and I’m already getting a bracelet so soon.”

France was the country on top when the $3K NLHE event finished on Friday, as Ivan Deyra won the event for more than $380K and eclipsed the $1 million mark in career live earnings. “That was a goal for me,” he commented after the win, “but the main goal was winning a bracelet.”

As his friends supported him on the rail of the final table, as he had done for some of them on other occasions, Deyra felt confident. “When I was young, I watched the WSOP on TV with stars in my eyes, and now to be here and to win it, it’s amazing. It’s like a dream!”

Finally, the special $1,500 Bracelet Winners Only NLHE event finished with Shankar Pillai capturing his second bracelet and more than $71K. He won his first WSOP gold in 2007 in a $3K NLHE event, and this one happened for the New Yorker in a different place in life.

“I have a 16-month-old son, so I don’t travel that much anymore,” he said. But he did admit that he might be playing more tournaments near his home when he can after this win.
