Three more players won WSOP Online bracelets this weekend. An American online exile, Nick Maimone, took down his first career-bracelet with a victory in WSOP Online Event #69 $1,500 NL Marathon. Meanwhile, Anson Tsang snagged his second bracelet with a victory in WSOP Online Event #68 $500 Deepstack. Over in the Big 50, Huahuan 'F7588' Feng outlasted a staggering 44576 runners to win the $50 buy-in WSOP Online Event #71. Feng banked $211,282 for his victory.


Sometimes it takes a while for a great player to get recognized. Sometimes it takes a while before a player proves he's no fluke and wins a second bracelet. And sometimes it takes a dreamer and a lot of courage to stare into the deep abyss and gamble it up. At the 2020 WSOP Online at GGPoker, three players won tournaments and a slew of cash, but they also won an online bracelet, which is highly symbolic for each of the players on different paths and stages of their respective poker journeys.

In one event, an American pro became an online exile to pursue his career and he finally broke though to the winner's circle after a rough road to stay afloat in the hypocritical USA. In another event, a Hong Kong pro with nearly $3 million in earnings, secured a second bracelet of his career after taking down his initial bling in RozVegas a few years earlier. And then there's the so-called random guy and casual player from China who took a shot at a $50 tournament and outlasted a sea of players to win the bracelet and nearly $212K in cash.

2020 WSOP Online WSOP Online Event #68 $500 Deepstack drew in 2,315 runners and they generated a prize pool worth nearly $1.1 million. The top 332 places paid out with $150K set aside to the champion.

The final table for Event #68 Deep Stack included... Anson 'Tara@0z' Tsang, Mohaiman "Ironman3000" Ashrafee, Stephen "supernuts21" Holford, Amir "8ty4calling8" Dvir, Wong "SMLJtroll" Soon Heong, Malcolm "HappyWhale" Trayner, Marc "Face-O" Carola, Nobuaki "Sasa JHR" Sasaki, and Eder "BlueMoon" Campana.

Bangladesh and Hong Kong battled for the Deepstack bracelet. Bangladesh's Mohaiman 'Ironman3000' Ashrafee busted in second place, but still snatched a runner-up score worth approximately $117K.

Anson 'Tara@0z' Tsang banked the win and $150K in cash, plus his second bling. Tsang initially won his first bracelet at the 2018 WSOP Europe. He won a PLO event and slapped a bracelet around his wirst. He now has another bracelet for his other wrist.

Yigit "Gandhing1212" Aksoy bubbled the final table in tenth place. Notable players who went deep in the Deepstack and cashed included... Justin Lapka, Karl Marx, and Porter Lambert.

WSOP Online Event #69 $1,500 NL Marathon attracted 1,438 runners and a prize pool worth a shade over $2 million. The top four places earned six-figure paydays with $302K set aside to the champion.

WSOP Online Event #69 $1,500 NL Marathon final table included... Nick 'rdcrsn' Maimone, Diego "JaxTeller" Bittar, Giovani "Mandjocka" Torre, Nikolay "PROMsGT" Motsenko, Sebastian "Mustlaaaveit" Sikorski, Ermo "PublicEnemy7" Kosk, Murilo "RaiseBluff" Nascimento, Erik "FortySixand2" Lemarquand, and Bert "ILOVECATS" Stevens.

Once again, it was Brazil vs USA heads-up for the bling. This time, American prevailed. Nick 'rdcrsn' Maimone knocked out JaxTeller in second place. The Brazilian banled $228K for a runner-up score. Not too shabby, eh?

Nick 'rdcrsn' Maimone banked $302,420 for the victory. Oh and his first-ever bling for the old-school grinder.

WSOP Online Event #71 BIG 50 had a super-low $50 buy-in, which is wht over 44K players too a shot at the bling. The BIG 50 had a total of 44,576 entrants and a prize pool that topped $2.05 million. The top three places paid out six figure scores.

WSOP Online Event #71 BIG 50 final table included... Huahuan 'F7588' Feng, Xue Qiao "whattfboys" Zhao, Ronald "CorVanHout" Haverkamp, Daniel "Vanessa23" Montagnolli, Max "TheChosen1" Veyga, Di "LuXDi" Lu, Xiong "wwwyoujizz" Huang, Dean "JoogieJJ" Lipscombe, and Wade "JWNomad" Gillett.

It was an all-China heads-up finale in the Big 50 with Xue qiao 'whattfboys' Zhao vs Huahuan 'F7588' Feng. Feng knocked out Zhao for the victory and bling. For a runner-up finish, Xue Qiao 'whattfboys' Zhao banked $159,705. Not too shabby, eh?

Huahuan 'F7588' Feng earned a score worth $211,282, plus the Big 50 bling for his first bracelet victory.
