2020 WSOP Online Event #31 heads-up

After a month of online poker at WSOP.com, the folks at the WSOP awarded its 31st and final bracelet of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online. It's been wild year and despite the lockdowns, quarantine, and shutdowns, the WSOP pivoted in a way to provide poker players with a chance to compete against pros, top players, and poker enthusiasts. The 2020 WSOP Online is far from perfect, but they tried their best to give Americans a shot at winning a bracelet (so long as they figured out a way to get within Nevada or New Jersey state lines). Heck, even one pro won a bracelet in the parking lot of a Whole Foods... which demonstrated his ferocious intent on shipping a bracelet, but it also revealed the absurdity of state-by-state online poker laws in America. Just legalize it already!

Anyway, the 2020 WSOP Online played out at WSOP.com all July. GGPoker got into the mix for international players starting in mid-July and will run until the end of the summer.

202 WSOP Online Event #31 $1,000 NL Championship attracted 2,126 total entries and a prize pool worth over $2 million.

Over in WSOP Online Event #46 $500 Deep Stack NL, it was one of several events that kicked off in Asia's time zone in order to appeal to players in that region instead of adhering to Central Europe or "ET" in North America. Over 4,732 runners took a shot at the bracelet in Event #46, plus nearly $162K set aside to the winner.

The final table of Event #46 included... Sung Joo 'ArtePokerTV' Hyun, Yiduo 'Tr1pTripM' Yu, Jeffrey "hockeysyrup" Mallach, Nikita "VSMPZD" Kuznetsov, Yu "kris16" Du, Che Li "32bo" Lin, Jens "el_gazapo" Kerper, Wei "dugui777" Zhao, and Yesha "Iconic" Punjabi.
