Qui Nguyen Dominates Day One of the WSOP 2016 Final Table

Qui Nguyen has dominated and taken over the lead in day one of the final table and has a major chip lead over the other players. His biggest hand of the night went to Nguyen when he took Kenny Hallert out with a pair of aces against Hallaert’s ace queen of clubs. Though that was the biggest hand of the night, Nguyen had been leading for most of the night. That hand was more or less the cap of a successful night at the table. He holds a sizeable lead over his opponents.
There were four bust outs. The rounds leading to the four busts were:
Fernando Pons went all-in with ace-six but lost when Cliff Josephy won with three of kind of kings. Jerry Wong was next with a pocket jacks being overruled by Vojtech Ruzicka’s pocket queens. Griffin Benger was next out when a pocket tens from Gordon Vayo won over Benger’s ace – nine combo.
The remaining players are guaranteed at least $1.9 million.
There are five players remaining.
Chip counts for the remaining players are:
Nguyen 128,625,000
Josephy 63,850,000
Vojtech Ruzicka 62,250,000
Vayo 58,200,000
Ruane 23,700,000
All the players who busted out are guaranteed at least a million dollars . First place finish will take home $8 million dollars.

Satellite Tournaments are a Great Way to Get In Highstakes Games with a Small Stake Investment

Satellite poker tournaments are a way to get into highstakes poker tournaments for a fraction of the regular buy-in fee. America’s Cardroom has dozens of satellite tournaments everyday. This article shows some of the satellite tourneys they have along with the results of main highstakes game.
Sunday is one of the most active days at America’s Cardroom . And for this reason I have included the Sunday 100k Warmup Tournament, yes that’s one hundred thousand dollar tournament.
The satellite tournament will give one winner a seat to this tournament. The cost of being in the satellite is $9. The regular price of this tournament is $109. For the top finisher it’s a dream come true. Afterall the main $100k Warmup usually goes over the GTD amount. Look at the results. The prize pool was 30% higher at $130,000 and the winner walked away with almost $25,000. So potentially you could go from $9 to $25,000 in one day!

These are the results which are pretty impressive.


But this is only a single winner satellite tournament. There are other tournaments with multiple winners. Some satellites tourneys have up to 20 top finishers who will get a satellite seat at a fraction of the regular buy-in cost.
The 115k Sunday Special is the next tournament I’m looking at. This is more generous as far as winners are concerned. The top $20 finishers will get a seat that usually is $215. The buy-in for the satellite is $30. There is a greater chance of getting a seat with 20 finishers than with 1 winner only. I like this type of satellite tournament. The results of the tournament are listed also. The top prize was over $30,000. Again, not bad for a few hours of work.

The final tournament I’m looking at is the $50k Sunday GTD. Satellites for this tournament have a buy-in of $9. There are 10 spots for the top finishers to get a seat for a fraction of the regular cost. The regular buy-in is $55. And as you can see the winner walked away with almost $12,000!
Americas Cardroom has multiple satellite tournaments daily. Not all are for these top highstakes tournaments. Check the satellite schedule and you will find a listing of the various satellites available. They’re a great way to turn a small stake into a larger stake.
