  • As House Republicans move to consider the first bills to fund the operations of the United States government next year, Democrats are hoping to force votes on plans that would prohibit federal workers from staying at hotels and other properties in which President Donald Trump has a financial interest. The plans are being pushed by Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), a frequent critic of Mr. Trump, as Beyer hopes to bring them up for debate on four different funding bills that are scheduled to be voted on this week by the full House. The format is the familiar “funding limitation” amendment, in which ‘none of the funds’ can be used by the feds for certain purposes – in this case, staying at a hotel that is either owned or operated by the Trump family. The effort comes after press reports earlier this month, that the State Department spent over $15,000 to book rooms at the new Trump Hotel in Vancouver; the information was obtained by the Washington Post in a Freedom of Information Act request. For the bill that funds the operations of Congress, and programs of the Department of Veterans Affairs and Military Construction, the language spelled out above would block government workers from spending money to “pay or reimburse lodging expenses of a Federal employee or official in the course of official Government travel or business at any hotel or property in which the President maintains a financial interest.” For the spending bill that funds the operations of the Pentagon, Beyer’s plan would give the Secretary of Defense the power to waive those same prohibitions, “on a case-by-case basis,” on the grounds of national security. But in the funding bill for Energy and Water programs, Beyer’s amendment gets specific, listing over three dozen different Trump properties in the U.S. and around the world. It’s not clear if the plans will be considered during debate this week on these four funding bills, which are being grouped together into one ‘minibus’ funding measure, officially known as the “Make America Secure Appropriations Act.” The House Rules Committee will meet on Monday to sort through amendments proposed to the bill by lawmakers, and determine which ones should be debated.  
  • The Latest on the no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event in Las Vegas (all times local): 2:10 a.m. A Pennsylvania man who finished second in the World Series of Poker says the cards didn't go his way. Daniel Ott is from Altoona, Pennsylvania, and earned $4.7 million at the series' marquee no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event early Sunday in Las Vegas. Scott Blumstein, of Brigantine, New Jersey, won and takes home more than $8.1 million. Neither Ott nor Blumstein had previously played at the main event. Both had dozens of supporters who cheered and gasped throughout the night, depending on the hand. Ott tells PokerNews.com he 'got second place in the third largest Main Event ever' and he 'can't complain about that.' Late Saturday night, Frenchman Benjamin Pollak was eliminated in third place. ___ 1:05 a.m. A New Jersey man who just became this year's World Series of Poker champion and pocketed more than $8.1 million says he's 'really happy' with how he played but he's 'pretty tired of poker at this point.' Rookie Scott Blumstein won the series' marquee no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event early Sunday in Las Vegas. He eliminated another poker main event rookie, Daniel Ott, of Altoona, Pennsylvania, on the 246th hand of the final table. Blumstein's ace of hearts and two of diamonds were stronger than Ott's hand. Blumstein says he had to 'battle pretty deep' and he's 'really happy with the result.' Late Saturday night, Frenchman Benjamin Pollak was eliminated in third place. ___ 12:20 a.m. New Jersey's Scott Blumstein is this year's World Series of Poker champion. The 25-year-old won the series' marquee no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event early Sunday in Las Vegas. He's now more than $8.1 million richer. Blumstein is from Brigantine, New Jersey. He eliminated another poker main event rookie, Daniel Ott, of Altoona, Pennsylvania, on the 246th hand of the final table. Blumstein's ace of hearts and two of diamonds were stronger than Ott's hand. Ott went all in with ace of diamonds and eight of diamonds. The community cards were a jack of spades, a six of spades, a five of hearts, a seven of hearts and a two of hearts. Blumstein is also taking home a gold bracelet made from white and yellow gold and diamonds and rubies. Earlier Saturday, Frenchman Benjamin Pollak was eliminated in third place. ___ 9 p.m. Poker pro Benjamin Pollak has gone out in third place at the no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event of the World Series of Poker The Frenchman was eliminated Saturday, the third day of play at the final table. He leaves the premier tournament with $3.5 million. He started the day with over 45 million chips and put his last 35.6 million on the line on queen of clubs and 10 of diamonds. But the chip leader of the final table had the strongest hand out of the three remaining players. Scott Blumstein of Brigantine, New Jersey, increased his chip count to more than 232 million with his ace of hearts and queen of spades. Meanwhile, Daniel Ott of Altoona, Pennsylvania, reached a 128 million chip count with king of clubs and nine of diamonds. The community cards laid out on the table were jack of spades, three of diamonds, king of diamonds, four of clubs and six of spades. Blumstein and Ott are vying for a grand prize of over $8.1 million. ___ 7:50 p.m. An accounting error paused play for a few minutes at the final table of the no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Organizers were forced to recount chips Saturday after a hand in which Daniel Ott doubled up to almost 70 million, while Benjamin Pollak dropped to about 23.3 million. But Pollak did not have that amount of chips in front of him after the hand. Series spokesman Seth Palansky says 10 million chips were miscounted. He says the dealer had pulled chips from Pollak's stack, but he was unaware and ended up paying Ott, too. Chips have no monetary value in the tournament. Each player will have to lose all his chips before he is eliminated from the final table. Pollak, Ott and Scott Blumstein are the three remaining players vying for a grand prize of more than $8.1 million. ___ 5:42 p.m. The marquee no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event of the World Series of Poker is down to the final three players vying for the top prize of more than $8.1 million.

The players, who bested more than 7,200 others, at this point are guaranteed $3.5 million. The champion also will receive a gold bracelet made from white and yellow gold and diamonds and rubies. Blumstein will be joined at the table by Daniel Ott of Altoona, Pennsylvania, and Frenchman Benjamin Pollak. The 25-year-old Ott has more than 88 million chips, while 34-year-old Pollak is starting Saturday with over 45 million chips.
