Anthony Zinno wins

Back-to-Back World Poker Tour Titles

His win at the WPT L.A. Poker Classic is his third overall.

Not quite a chip in a chair, but close!

Already a two-time WPT Champion, Rhode Island native Anthony Zinno sat with only seven big blinds at the WPT L.A. Poker Classic at Commerce Casino with just four players left before surging back to win it all on Thursday night.

Last month Zinno took down WPT Fallsview Poker Classic which along with this victory makes him only the third player to ever win back-to-back WPT titles, joining the company of Marvin Rettenmaier and Darren Elias.

Zinno has also become only the third player to ever win 3 WPT titles joining the likes of Gus Hansen and Carlos Mortensen.

It is no surprise to learn that with this score of $1,015,860, Zinno has amassed more than $2.8 million in live tournament cashes.

The final table played down as follows:

Studies How Your Brain Reacts to Poker

New device attempts to get inside players’ heads while at the table.

Partypoker recently tested out a new high-tech device that supposedly can read your brain activity while playing poker.

As documented in an article by John Ward at the Daily Star, partypoker has set up a “task force” to collect data on the function of the human brain while at the felt. That info will then be handed over to their “in house poker psychologists” who will publish their findings on pokerbrain.com.

Until now, the Emotiv headset was only used in online play, but recently it was worn by a member of the Daily Star at a World Poker Tour event at Aspers Casino in London. Check out how it went and what the partypoker rep had to say.
