WSOP Not Only Poker Action

The 2024 World Series of Poker has been delivering some great results up to this point, but there are other poker circuits taking place. While most of the top poker players will be involved at the WSOP in some form, there are other poker news stories out there as well. 

Some players have been able to cash in other events, while other poker organizations are trying to keep players engaged. Here is a look at three other poker news stories that shouldn’t be ignored while the WSOP is taking place. 

Mills Goes on Big Run

While players were gearing up for the 2024 World Series of Poker, Kasey Lyn Mills was picking up some big wins in other tournaments. Mills is a pro poker player from Oklahoma, and she became a big name in the poker industry post-COVID. 

There was a long run at the 2023 WSOP Main Event that really catapulted her career, and that momentum led to a ton of success already in 2024. Her first win came in January as she won $66,000 by taking home the title at the $1,000 Monster Stack Event. 

After gaining some momentum, Mills decided to participate in the World Poker Tour Voyage Championship. She was not able to take home the top prize, but it was a seventh place finish for $42,000. 

This is going to put her as a player to watch at the WSOP, and she is expected to participate in the Main Event yet again. 

Delmas Wins Big Online

There is also some big online tournaments taking place in 2024, and the PartyPoker Millions just recently wrapped up. Adrian Delmas was the biggest winner at the PartyPoker Millions event as he took home $76,412 in a field that included more than 1,100 players. 

This event was played over a number of different starting flights, and that lowered the field to just 116 players for Day 2. Delmas was representing the country of Canada in this online event, but there were many other countries in the mix as well. 

Players from Brazil had a ton of success in this tournament as players from that country took home five of the top nine spots. Delmas was alway in control of this tournament, but there were others players that kept thing interesting throughout the event. 

ACR Poker in the News

ACR Poker is trying to attract players that want to look outside of the WSOP by offering up a chance to cash in. The Fast Track to Vegas Turbo Series guarantees a prize pool of $2 million, and all of the action will take place from June 9-16. 

There are going to be more than 100 tournaments held throughout this event, and the buy-ins are for as low as $1.10. While that is going to lead to some small prize pools, there will also be plenty of winners. 

Players can also earn a trip to the WSOP by competing in this series, and that will keep players engaged.
