Ship it to kiddchamp! A coveted WSOP Circuit ring was at stake in the 2020 WSOP Online Super Circuit Series at WSOP.com. The 18-event series began almost two weeks ago in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Las Vegas casinos shuttered their doors when St. Patrick's Day ended, but Nevada residents had online options to get their gambool on. The 2020 WSOP Online Super Circuit Series at WSOP.com could not have come at a better time for poker players in New Jersey, Delaware, and Nevada seeking some sure-fire entertainment while holed up in quarantine. Plus, 18 shiny pieces of bling were on the line.
The $525 buy-in Main Event crushed the $200,000 guarantee when 763 players fired 371 additional bullets for 1,134 total entrants and a prize pool worth $567,000. Only the top 150 players were paid out.
Eric Baldwin bubbled the final table in tenth place.
The final table of nine included Champie 'kiddchamp' Douglas, Scott '2Due4U' Blumstein, Gage 'greypoupon' Doyne, Brian 'JackBogle' Altman, Gordon 'veilleux' Vayo, David 'dwpoker' Williams, Marcus 'mjl56' Laffen, Robert 'Bob_Loblaw' Brown, and Jose 'deposit' Noboa.
David 'dwpoker' Williams bounced in sixth place, which paid out $22,680. Gordon 'veilleux' Vayo hit the road in fifth place, which paid out $28,350.
Brian 'JackBogle' Altman missed out on a shot at winning a second title this year, but he busted in fourth place.
Gage 'greypoupon' Doyne got picked off in third place, which paid out $45,360. His elimination set up the heads-up battle between former WSOP Main Event champion, Scott '2Due4U' Blumstein and Champie 'kiddchamp' Douglas.
Champie 'kiddchamp' Douglas lived up to his online moniker and knocked out Blumstein. Blumstein banked $68,890 for a runner-up finish. Not too shabby, eh?
