Kid Poker denied! The busiest day at the 2017 WSOP featured the conclusion of four bracelet events including a heads-up bout between Daniel Negreanu and Abe Mosseri. Event #9 $10,000 Omaha8 needed an extra day to finish up the final table. Day 4 went quick and Abe Mosseri beat Negreanu for his second-career bracelet. Also, David 'Gunslinger' Bach won his second bracelet when he took down Event #11 $1,500 Dealers Choice. Thomas Pomponio, a butcher from New Jersey, took down The Colossus for a $1 million score. And India-born Aditya Sushant and Nipun Java shipped Event #10 $1,000 Tag Team.

Busy day for hump day at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. Four different events, four final tables, and four bracelets... well, technically five bracelets if you include the dynamic duo who won the Tag Team event. But the biggest story of the day surrounded Daniel Negreanu. Kid Poker was seeking his seventh-career bracelet. Negreanu mentioned his intentions to win multiple bracelets this summer. He even backed up his quest with a couple of prop bets. Negreanu is hell-bent on winning another piece of bling to add to his collection. In the first week of action, he got a shot for a bracelet in the $10K Omaha 8 championship... alas, he fell short of the mark when Abe Mosseri took him out in second place.

The Colossus III donkament concluded its final table. First place paid out $1 million. New Jersey pro and former butcher Thomas Pomponio won the bracelet and biggest prize thus far at the 2017 WSOP.

Ship it to India! Aditya Sushant and Nipun Java won the second Tag Team event on this year's schedule. They chopped $150K for winning Event #10.

David 'Gunslinger" Bach once won the $50K Players Championship. He added a second-bracelet to his resume with a victory in Event #11 $1,5000 Dealers Choice.

Event #5 THE COLOSSUS III $565 NL - Final Table

DonkSlayer Pomp

Three cheers to Thomas Pomponio, the Colossal Donk Slayer!

Thomas Pomponio faded a massive field of 18K runners to win $1 million. The New Jersey-based pro and former butcher outlasted a final table that included pro Matt "No, I'm not Ben's little bro" Affleck. Although short stacked, Affleck couldn't rally and he busted in eighth place.

Thomas Pomponio listed his profession as a butcher. Fitting that the butcher/poker player was the last one left standing in the killing fields. Behold, the Donk Slayer... Thomas Pomponio!

The Colossus III started on Friday June 2 and ended on Wednsday. Thomas Pomponio defeated Taylor Black heads-up for the win... and $1 million in cash. Black had a nice score... $545K for second place. Not too shabby, eh?

Notables and familiar faces who cashed in the Top 250 included... Sebastian Pauli, Cate Hall, Happy Shulman, Mike Dentale, Ryan Laplante, and David "Bakes" Baker.

Event #9 $10,000 Omaha 8 - Final Table

AbeWins2

The $10K Omaha 8 Championship was scheduled as a three-day event. However, the final table went on much longer than any expected. Even with an additional "courtesy level", the tournament still had two players remaining: Abe Mosseri and Daniel Negreanu.

Both veterans wanted to keep playing, but rules are rules... as silly as they are. Play got suspended with two to go and Kid Poker trailed 2-1 in chips.

Quickie Day 4 in what the internet snark tank dubbed as the Hair Plugs Bowl. Abe Mosseri needed less than 30 minutes to defeat Daniel Negreanu heads-up for the win. Negreanu won nearly a quarter of a mil, but he wanted the bracelet... badly. With prop bets on the line, it was a tough miss.

Meanwhile, Abe Mosseri won his second bracelet. The New York native and pro won his first one back in 2009 in Triple Draw.

Event #10 $1,000 Tag Team NL - Final Results

Team India Wins Tag Team

Nipun Java and Aditya Sushant are gonna become rock stars in India after their victory in Las Vegas. The duo outlasted a tough final table to win their first-ever bracelets. Java previously won a WSOP Circuit ring, but this was his first bracelet victory.

DJ MacKinnon and Esther Taylor came into the final table with the lead, but they busted in sixth place. Ryan Laplante was the only remaining player with at least one WSOP bracelet, but he was denied another bracelet when his team (with Sam Cohen) busted in seventh place.

Aditya Sushant/Nipun Java defeated the team of Pablo Mariz/David Guay heads-up for the victory. Java, originally from India, is a pro based out of the Los Angeles area. His teammate Sushant currently resides in India. But after the win, he probably should move to SoCal to bask in the warmth and be closer to the action.

"It was destiny," said Sushant. "It was meant to be. I am so happy that he is a friend of mine. For two of us Indians to get it done, it's really big."

In a post-victory interview, Java added, "To win a bracelet with a fellow Indian and to have a huge Indian contingent coming here, you know, all these guys, they play their hearts out. It's not easy for them to travel all the way here, and there are tax implications. A lot of these guys have to literally lay it on the line, you know."

Event #11 $1,500 Dealers Choice - Final Results

DBach Gunslinger2

Gunslinger! You remember the dude in the cowboy hat and wild-shirts from the 2009 Poker Players Championship? He defeated on the most-stacked final tables in the history of the WSOP to win the Chip Reese Trophy and $1.2M in cash.

The pro from Georgia, who usually travels with his own chair, had previously made 11 final tables but with only one win in the 50K. Well, on Wednesday, Bach advanced to his 12th final table in this 6-max event... and he swiftly took his spot in the winner's circle.

David Bach faded a field of 364 mixed-game enthusiasts in a dealer's choice format. Just like your home game when you get to call what you want to play. Bach considered himself a strong Stud player, but decided to call games in which he spotted obvious mistakes/weaknesses from his opponents... such as Badacey and Triple Draw.

In his winner's interview Bach admitted, "One of the key games was pot-limit triple draw. Which is a crazy big game. When we played it at the final table, I think I was just kind of less scared of it than the other players and I think that really helped."

In less than four hours, Bach shipped his second bracelet. Bach edged out Kevin Iacofano heads-up for the win. Chip Jett bubbled the final table in seventh-place.

Tom Dwan wins $700K Pot on Poker After Dark

Talk about one heck of a re-boot! We saw fireworks on the first episode back for the popular cash-game program Poker After Dark. We witnessed one of those insane-cooler hands with Q-Q vs. K-K vs. A-A. Luckily for Daniel Negreanu, he had enough sense to fold when Tom Dwan six-bet shoved with Aces. Antonio Esfandiari, who has folded Kings in big spots before, made the call. They ran it twice and Dwan's Aces held up in a pot worth nearly $700,000. It's the hand everyone is talking about today, which is great P.R. for the Poker After Dark re-boot. Another episode airs tonight on PokerGO at 8pm ET or 5pm local time in Vegas.
