Nipun 'Javatinii' Java won Event #71 ONLINE NL Championship for a score worth nearly $238K. Java won a bracelet in the tag team event earlier this summer. Java joined David Bach as the only double winners at the 2017 WSOP. Also, on Sunday afternoon, Heidi May shipped Event #70 $10,000 NL Ladies Championship. The Aussie pro defeated Deb the Destroyer from the U.K. heads-up for the victory. And over in Event #72 $10K Stud, Mike Wattel ended an 18-year drought with his second-career bracelet win. In the process, Wattel denied Jesus Ferguson a bracelet during an epic 6-hour heads-up battle.

Wild, wild, wild Sunday at the Rio. A couple of big-time bracelets were on the line. And over the weekend, only the second player this summer earned the designation: double-bracelet winner.

Nipun 'Javatinii' Java added his name to an impressive list of double-bracelet winners... players who shipped at least two bracelets in a single year. Java binked the single-day Event #71 ONLINE NL Championship. Java won the third online event of the year for a score worth approximately $238K.

Aussie pro Heidi May defeated Deb the Destroyer from the U.K. heads-up to win the Ladies Championship. May earned her first bracelet with a victory in Event #70.

And in one of the longest heads-up battles of the summer, Mike Wattel came-from-behind to defeat Jesus Ferguson for the Seven-card Stud Championship. Wattel took down Event #72 $10K Stud for his second-career win. He previously won one back in 1999! Wow, in the 20th Century, brah! Heck of a comeback from a pro's pro who had come close several times over the years. Wattel defeated Jesus Ferguson, who has been wearing the proverbial "black hat" trademark of a bad guy in American western lore. The hyper-majority of the online poker community had jumped on the Wattel bandwagon and cheered him on to beat former Full Tilt co-founder and co-owner Jesus Ferguson.

Yup, another wild Sunday in Vegas.

Heidi May WSOP

Quickie win for Heidi May. Only five players were still alive at the final table for Sunday's action. May quickly dispatched the remainder of the ladies to win the bracelet, the cash, and the bling.

It was Australia vs. U.K. heads-up for the title. The Aussie came out on top, thanks to the disco shirt. May faced Deborah 'Debs the Destroyer' Worley-Roberts... but May edged out DD.

"The disco shirt. It's our house shirt. Every time someone makes a final table we wear it," May told reporters in the post-victory presser.

Fear the disco shirt! May won $135K and her first bracelet.

Only the top 108 places got paid out any prize money. Notables going deep included... Mandy Baker, Lynn Gilmartin, and Vanessa Selbst, Allison Schultz, Wendy Weissman, Amanda Sizemore, Nathalie Schaeffer, Lexy Gavin, Gina Rossi, Judith Ezagouri, Nathalie Schaeffer and Estelle Denis.

Event #72 $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship - Final Results

Mike Wattel 2017 win

Jesus made another run. Yet, Mike Wattel stopped his attempt to walk on water. The 10K Stud Championship included a final table for the ages.

Perry Friedman, one of the original Tilt Boys, came into the final day with the chip lead. He was trying to recapture the old glory days of the poker boom.

Meanwhile, Jesus Ferguson was lurking near the front of the pack for Player of the Year... along with John Monette. Jesus has become one of the bad guys that the community loathes for his role in the Full Tilt scandal. Love or hate Jesus, the majority of the poker community were sweating this final table as it dipped into the wee hours of Monday morning.

David Benyamine busted first at the final table, but he walked away with a 24K score. Shaun Deeb got waffle-crushed in seventh place. Bryce Yokckey's deep run ended in sixth place. John Monnette was seeking another bracelet and fighting for POY points. But he finished in fifth place.

Sean Amir Mirrasouli bowed out in third place. With three to go, Mike Wattel led a pair of Full Tilters... Jesus Ferguson and Perry Friedman. The chatterbox Friedman busted in third place. A heads-up duel was set between Wattel and Jesus.

And they'd slug it out for nearly six hours. Action was almost called late on Day 3, but the two played out an extra level... and that's when the fireworks occurred. Wattel rallied from behind to win. Jesus Ferguson settled on second place, while Wattel went on to win his second-career bracelet.

Wattel previous won a bracelet back in 1999. He had final tabled a few events over the years, but he finally returned to the winner's circle... albeit 18 years later. Heck of a win, and a heck of a comeback for Wattel.

Notables who went deep and cashed included.... Todd Brunson, Dan Zack, Jason Mercier, Randy Ohel, Harry Thomas Jr. and Shirley Rosario.
