Ship it to Joon Kim and Alan Goehring. Those two added their names to the history books with victories in the last two 2020 World Series of Poker Online bracelet events hosted at WSOP.com. Every day there will be another new event at WSOP.com. So far, the folks at the WSOP handed out seven bracelets including a Knockout Deepstack bracelet and an old-school Freezeout bracelet.
WSOP Online Event #7 $800 NL Knockout Deepstack sounds like one of those fun online events in which you can earn bounties by knocking out players. The deepstack version of it makes it even a little harder to pick people off, but heck, it's online and it's the WSOP, so gamboool it up! Event #7 attracted 989 runners and a prize pool worth nearly $732K.
Layne Flack just missed the final table when he busted in 12th place.
The Event #7 final table included Joon Kim, Stephen McManus, Eric Baldwin, Jason, Gunn, Ian Steinman, Lee Gale, Jeff Platt, John Love, and Joe Hoffman. Baldwin, now playing under 'CircleBall', went super deep but busted in third place. Joon 'jykpoker' Kim defeated Stephen 'bunsamillion' McManus heads up to win the bracelet and $103,127.
The Top 408 places paid out in Event #7. Some of the notables names who went deep in the KO Deepstack included... James Romero, Hunter Frey, Eddy Sabat, Simon Deadman, Jared Jaffee, Ted Lui, Matt Stout, Kevin Sullivan, Jeff Lennon, Bakes Baker, Philip Tom, Maria Ho, Vanessa Kade, Jamie Kerstetter, Anthony Spinella, Tony Lewis, Jen Harman, Olga Steele, Ali Imsirovic, Shaun Deeb, Kevin MacPhee, Ryan Laplante, Andrew Lichtenberger, Raghav Sankararaman, Hye Park, Jack Salter, Tony Dunst, Jack Straw, Leif Force, Jon Turner, Ben Yu, Dan Brown, Matt Affleck, Alan Goehring, Ralph Perry, and Jack White.
Meanwhile, old-school WPT champ Alan Goehring got his online game on fleek with a couple of cashes and a piece of bling in the first week of action. WSOP Online Event #8 $500 Freezeout attracted 1,479 runners and a prize pool over $665K.
Final table in Event #8 included Alan 'GladiusIII' Goehring, Ross "BlueTang" Gottlieb, Randy "StayAlive" Ohel, Robert "bustinballs" Kuhn, Scott "miamicane" Davies, clembutt, dudeguydrew, aceviper, and xILoUieIx. Randy Ohel, playing under 'StayAlive', busted in third place.
Goehring defeated Ross "BlueTang" Gottlieb to win Event #8. Goehring banked $119,399 in cash plus his first bracelet.
Phil Hellmuth cashed in Event #8 but failed in his quest for another piece of bling. By the way, the Poker Brat's house in Las Vegas is still up for sale if you'd like to buy an overpriced piece of poker history.
