U.s. Poker Pro Scores Third World Poker Tour Title

Darren Elias gets third title and $335,436 after victory in WPT Fallsview Poker Classic

US poker pro Darren Elias has joined the exclusive company of players who have won three or more World Poker Tour titles, becoming the fifth member of a group that includes Chino Rheem, Anthony Zinno, Carlos Mortensen and Gus Hansen.
He clinched his third title at the Cdn$ 5,000 buy-in WPT Fallsview main event in Canada this week, besting a stellar field of 489 to claim the honours and the $335,436 main prize.
Elias's previous wins took place in 2014 at the WPT Borgata Championship in which he took home $843,744, and the WPT St Maarten, which boosted his bank balance by a further $127,680.
Elias entered the heads up stage against fellow US pro David Eldridge with a small chip advantage, but managed to leverage it into a convincing victory after just three hands, sending Eldridge home with a still-impressive runner up prize of Cdn$224,613.
Other final table cashes were:
Jean-Christophe Ferreira Cdn$144,465
Andrew Chen Cdn$106,865
Manig Loeser Cdn$80,149
Abdul Hassan Cdn$64,316

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
