Three nights of “Voices Carry” on Poker After Dark saw three different lineups play $25,000 winner-take-all Sit & Gos. Matt Berkey, Ben Lamb and Liv Boeree each walked away with a win – all in their first appearance on the show – and $150,000.
Berkey defeated Nick Schulman heads-up on Tuesday night for his win. David Williams returned to PAD after appearing a few times originally, William Kassouf brought his speech play to set and irritated Mike Matusow and Jean-Robert Bellande to no end.
Ben Lamb kept Schulman out of the money a second night in a row with back-to-back runner-up finishes. Scott Seiver, Brian Rast, Jason Koon and Berkey filled out Wednesday’s table.
Liv Boeree and Igor Kurganov hoped a on plane straight from PokerStars Championship Barcelona to make Thursday’s game. Boeree took down the table as the couple prepares for the Burning Man festival and Kurgonav just won a Super High Roller event in Barcelona.
World Poker Tour Final Tables on PokerGO

High Rollers Dominate GPI Player of the Year
Bryn Kenney missed a lot of the WSOP in part due to a weight loss bet.
Bryn Kenney still tops the GPI Player of the Year standings after he started the year with an out of this world run in the Bahamas. He missed most of the World Series of Poker but still has enough points to keep Koray Aldemir, Dario Sammartino and Nick Petrangelo in the rearview mirror.
Broke Living on Heads Up
Jean-Robert Bellande played on both weeks of Poker After Dark for “The Return of Tom Dwan” and “Voices Carry”. Between all the poker he still had time to sit for an hour long chat with Remko Rinkema.
Bellande touched on the huge action he saw on PAD and how he’s rebounded from being broke several times.
