Pro poker player Romain Lewis takes us back to the World Series of Poker.

Pro’s retrospective look at the World Series of Poker Lewis, Romain

The Frenchman is featured on “In the Mind of a Pro” and is now competing in a US$3,000 NLH event.

Winamax’s In the Mind of a Pro crew is prepared to film all the action from this year’s WSOP (WSOP). This year’s production highlights include the biggest poker festival in the world.

Even though this year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) has new rules and regulations, it is still the poker world’s most talked-about tournament. The In the Mind of a Pro team picks up exactly where they left off four months later, with the complete Winamax squad vying for the coveted bracelets in Las Vegas, thanks to the expedited timetable of the 2021 autumn tournaments in the United States and the summer venue refurbishment.

With the elimination of fellow Team Winamax member Francois Pirault, Romain Lewis now has the opportunity to compete for the $3,000 Freezout bracelet. This week’s episode of In the Mind of a Pro highlighted Pirault’s first final table in a $3,000 Freezout tournament. Now it’s Lewis’s time; he had a tremendous WSOP performance in 2017 and won a bracelet in a $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty event.

Lewis is a seasoned player who has won almost $3.3 million in live tournaments. Despite his impressive palmares, this WSOP 2021 showdown will not be a walk in the park for him. Will he be able to make it?

The World Series of Poker is held at Caesars, and the staff there has always made it simple for the In the Mind of a Pro crew to do their work and film the most thrilling moments of the game. The crew is prepared to record the heightened drama and breathtaking scenery of this year’s WSOP. Poker aficionados can anticipate a whole new level of excitement thanks to the introduction of exciting new settings, processes, and traditions.

The PGT PLO Series was won by Guerra, while Barbero was the overall leader.

The PGT PLO Series was won by Guerra, while Barbero was the overall winner.

Although the Argentine is leading the overall standings and the Spaniard has won his second largest prize ever in Event #5, both players cashed in on the event.

During the PokerGO Tour’s PGT PLO Series in Las Vegas, Spain’s first champion was Lautaro Guerra Cabrerizo, who came from behind to win Event #5 for US$10,000. The Spaniard beat off 112 other competitors to take home the $220,400 first place prize.

Guerra, Lautaro

Barbero now sits atop the PGT PLO leaderboard, putting him in prime position to win the tournament and an additional $25,000.

The last day of play began with the European just a few blinds ahead of Jesse Chinni for lowest chip total. He made it to the final table, unfortunately in second-to-last position, but he did it. In a few hands, he was able to treble his chips and take the lead with just six players left.

From there, Guerra played his cards until the last hand, when he was defeated by Finnish pro Joni Jouhkimainen. In that particular situation, the two parties involved agreed on a settlement that would award the winner an extra US$20,000. In the end, Cabrerizo was awarded the full prize and the trophy, while the runner-up had to be content with US$194,000.

According to TheHendonMob, this was the second largest cash award the Spaniard has ever won in a live event. This was his third victory in a live event, and all three had come in Pot-Limit Omaha. Guerra has won almost $700,000 in live events so far, the great bulk of which came through PLO competitions.

Third in the series standings, with 235 PGT points after this victory, behind leaders Nacho Barbero (256) and Sean Troha (240), Lautaro now finds himself in a tie for fourth. The Argentine finished in 13th place and took home $22,400. He had previously won a major title, fallen from prominence, and then climbed back to the top.

Renan Meneguetti takes first place in the Bounty Builder Championship.

Several Brazilian players departed PokerStars on Wednesday with full bankrolls thanks to the ongoing success of the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series. Renan Meneguetti, a native of Santa Catarina, is a prime example.

With the handle “xrenanx182,” the star completely dominated Event #98-H ($530 Bounty Builder High Roller) against a field of 180 competitors. Renan received a monetary prize of $20,077. Gabriel Schroeder “gabsdrogba” took third place and $6,913 in the same competition.

Similarly, Brazil led the 3,357-entry field for Event #98-L ($55 Mini Bounty Builder HR) in the same season. The winner, “muriLLoo.mrL” of Murilo Machado, took home $19,508. The runner-up, “ENG.Brito” of Haroldo Brito, got $10,473.

Ultimately, Samba Poker Team ace Saymon Dias, “$aymon9,” won Event #103 ($109 Phenomenon Special). The pro eliminated 777 amateurs from the tournament and ended up with $12,616 in winnings.

Guerra came back to the party and caused a Barbero Nacho

After the party, Guerra came back to see the effects Barbero Nacho

After his victory in Event #7 of the PGT PLO, the Spaniard dethroned the Argentinian as the series’ overall leader.

Guerra’s big-league comeback had an impact on Nacho Barbero.

Once again, it was Lautaro Guerra Cabrerizo. The Spaniard won Event #7: $15,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty, bringing his total winnings from the inaugural Poker Go Tour PLO Series to US$303,000. He also received 15 bounties for an additional $75,000.

Before Friday, Nacho Barbero had been at the top of the list, but now Cabrerizo has taken over and is in excellent position to win the PGT Trophy and the $25,000 championship award. Event #5 was won by Guerra Cabrerizo, who collected $220,400 as his prize money.

Nacho comes in at number two.

How Guerra came out on top

There were 114 participants, and the top 17 finishers split a prize fund of $1,140,000. Cabrerizo and Isaac Kempton, who finished second, played a pivotal hand with 11 players left. Kempton opted to go “bounty hunting” when the short-stacked Damjan Radanov moved all of his chips into the middle of the table with Guerra Cabrerizo already there. When Cabrerizo had a pair of aces and decided to stake his large stack, he amassed a massive advantage.

From that point on, Cabrerizo reigned as the chip leader until the last heads-up showdown with Kempton, when the latter briefly took the lead before being eliminated by the champion’s straight and the American’s three of a kind. Just Hispanic player Johann Ibáez finished in the money, placing fifth with $85,500.

PLO Event #8: $25,000 Event #9, a $2,200 5-Card PLO, will wrap off the tournament on Sunday after Saturday’s championship round.
