It's a Sunday, so the WSOP awarded another online bracelet. Upeshka 'gomezhamburg' De Silva earned his third WSOP victory and his first online bracelet. He's previously won bracelets in a Shootout and by binking a donkament back in 2015.
Meanwhile, the Seniors declared a champion on Father's Day. The Seniors event is always a proper WSOP event. This year was no different with over 5,916 older runners.
Event #32 SENIORS $1,000 NL - Final Results
The Seniors flocked to the WSOP for Father's Days weekend. This year's event attracted 5,916 runners for the $1K buy-in event. Only the top 888 places paid out of the prize pool that topped $5.3 million.
This is so popular, when is the WSOP going to realize they should do a couple of these a year? They'd make a killing with some of the older folks (with oodles of money) that feel intimidated by the sharks.
Anyway, this year's SENIORS event had $663K set aside to the champion.
The final table included Howard Mash, Jean-Rene Fontaine, Farhad Jamasi, Mim McNirlan, Samir Husaynue, Adam Richardson, Mansour Alipourfard, Donald Matusow, and Mike Lisnati.
Howard Mash defeated France's Jean-Rene Fontaine heads-up for the SENIORS title, cash, and the bling.
Jean-Rene Fontaine banked $409,249 for second place. Not too shabby, eh?
Mash, a financial advisor from Florida, will have a little more money to manage with a score worth $662,594.
Notables who went deep in Event #32 Seniors included...Layne Flack, Julie Thomas, Cliff Pappas, Don Johnson, Ivo Donev, Barry Greenstein, Minh Nguyen, Andres Berg, Victor Ramdin, Peter COsta, Walter Davis, Kevin O'Donnoll, Rob Wong, Mark Napolitano, Ed Steele, Jacobo Fernandez, Louise Francouer, Allyn Shulman, David Simon, Per Hildenbrand, Joe Hachem, Gary Thompson, Minnie Kown, and An Van Tran.

Event #38 $600 ONLINE KO Bounty - Final Results
Every Sunday there's a piece of bling at stake for the Sunday grinders. Sundays are the holiest day of the week for virtual poker players. This weekend, a multiple-bracelet winner padded his stats with a third bracelet victory.
Upeshka 'gomezhamburg' De Silva outlasted a heady field of 1,224 runners to take down Event #38 $600 ONLINE KO Bounty. He defeated David 'dave419' Nodes heads-up for the title, cash, and bracelet.
Odd years are kind to De Silva. The pro originally from Sri Lanka won his first bracelet by shipping a donkament back in 2015 for a sweet score worth $424,577. He also took down a bracelet event in 2017 in the $3K NL Shootout for a score of $229,923.
