7-HOUR HEADS UP DECIDES WORLD SERIES OF POKER EVENT 44
2014-06-26


Event 44 at the World Series of Poker featured an epic 7-hour heads up that took evenly matched survivors Jordan Morgan (30) and Evan McNiff (28) into an exhausting additional fourth day of action before the winner was decided.

Day 3 of the event - a $1,500buy-in NLHE competition that pulled in 1,914 entrants and offered a prize pool of $2,583,900 - saw a final table formed comprising McNiff and Morgan, along with Jason Johnson, Raymond Foley, Bryan Dillon, Robert Chorlian, Joseph Iarussi, Ryan Spittles and Michael Anselm.

By early evening the heads up stage had been reached following the elimination of Jason Johnson at third for $204,464 and Morgan, who hails from Oklahoma, faced Californian McNiff holding a 4 to 1 chip lead.

It should have been a walkover, but instead the resilience and fighting spirit of McNiff turned it into a six hour marathon that had still not been decided when officials stopped play in the early hours of the following morning, ordering an extra day to reach a resolution.

On Day 4, Morgan and McNiff took their places with almost even chip stacks, but it still took an hour for Morgan to knock his very worthy opponent out for a runner up prize of $295,727 in a classic race result at hand 133.

It was a special day for Morgan, because in addition to his first WSOP bracelet and the main prize of $478,102, he was celebrating his ninth wedding anniversary.

The Oklahoman's win is the biggest so far in a career that has brought him success in both land and internet poker using the handle iMsoLucky0. His previous best win was in 2005, when he collected $405,072 after taking a second place in the NLHE event at the US Poker Championships in Atlantic City.

NEGREANU AND PANTLING IN POKER SPAT
2013-08-13

Matchbox.com chief executive Andrew Pantling's major Euro 800,000 victory at last spring's European Poker Tour grand final main event was reportedly a little soured by disparaging comments allegedly made by high profile poker pro Daniel Negreanu after the tourney, according to an interview with Pantling carried by the iGaming.org site this week.
Was it a case of sour grapes? Negreanu only managed a fifth placing but nevertheless felt qualified to voice a public and rather negative opinion on Pantling's game, triggering a wider conversation on various poker message boards and websites.
Pantling says the comment and subsequent discussion annoyed him
The reason is, I played with Daniel for a few days even before the final table, and I really beat him up with some big bluffs," Pantling claims in the interview.
"I felt, he was quite frustrated and irritated by this so after he was eliminated, he went on the live stream and vented by disrespecting my poker game.
"Since then, I had a chance to look at the final table footage and I didnt think it was a big deal, I just kind of laughed and wished I had the opportunity to play against Daniel more often," Pantling said....but then followed it with his own zinger:
That being said, as a brand ambassador for PokerStars, I think he represented himself and the company quite poorly.
If I was a true amateur, I wouldnt be overly keen to play poker on TV if I felt that a well-known PokerStars pro was going to publicly criticize my abilities in front of my friends and family, who were watching and know very little about poker. I know I wouldnt want my brand, Matchbook, represented like that."
