The fast and furious fun continues at GGPoker for the 2021 WSOP Online. Brazil claimed a pair of bracelets over the last couple of days, including a fantastic weekend of bracelet hunting at GGPoker. At the same time, British pro Chris Moorman missed out on adding another piece of bling to his growing collection and missed a chance to pull off a double-bracelet bink on two different sites. He already shipped a bracelet at WSOP.com last month in the USA, but narrowly missed a chance at another bracelet at GGPoker over the weekend.
2021 WSOP Online Event #4 $800 Double Chance attracted 1,643 entrants. They generated a prize pool that was a tad shot of $1.25 million. The final table included Thiago "IneedWasabi" Macedo, Andreas "Duckzzz" Nasman, Mathias "Senor Perez" Siljander, Tomi "BAAABUUSKIII" Brouk, Ivan "Kewww" Babintsev, Stoyan "UncleToni" Obreshkov, Ido "idollar" Aboudi, Sung keung "skpang781" Pang, and Sergei "Igor Gofman" Pillpenko.
The fight for the Double Chance bracelet was Finnish heavy with three players from Finland going deep and finishing in the top four. Alas, a Brazilian emerged the victory despite being outnumbered by the Fins when action got down to the final four. Brouk busted in fourth, while Siljander hit the road in third place. That set up the joust between Finland's Andreas "Duckzzz" Nasman and Brazil's Thiago "IneedWasabi" Macedo. Macedo was the last player standing and IneedWasabi banked $161K for the victory, which will buy him several high-end sushi dinners and all the wasabi they want.
2021 WSOP Online Event #5 $315 Bounty Deepstack attracted 2,989 players and a prize pool that was just short of $900K. The final table for Event #5 $315 Bounty Deepstack included Kacper Pyzara, Evgeny "pro_nl" Kochubey, Moti "rtm6789" Ohayon, Baoyang "baoyang666" Xu, Takao "shimizu9" Shimizu, Takahiko "tanyaodora3" Nishiyama, Martina "Dopierdole" Ciklaminiova, Arkadiy "Kamsky" Tsinis, and Vicente Delgado.
Poland and Russia were heads-up for the bounty bracelet. Alas, Poland prevailed when Kacper Pyzara knocked out Evgeny "pro_nl" Kochubey. Kochubey earned $53K including bounties, while Pyzara won his first bracelet and banked $43,504 for first place plus an additional $36,285 in bounties.
Poker used to be fun and loose before it got super serious and all the nerds and ruthless jagoffs sucked the fun out of the game. GGPoker attempted to bring fun back into the game with their FLIP & GO format. Somehow and somewhat, they convinced the suits at the WSOP to run a bracelet event in the FLIP & GO format.
2021 WSOP Online Event #6 $200 FLIP & GO attracted 6,368 runners and a prize pool worth over $1.2 million. The final table in FLIP & GO included several notable players including Chris Moorman, Erwann Pecheux, Markus Prinz, Georgios Sotiropoulos, Yen-Liang Yao, Michiel "Easterdamnz" Van Elsacker, Wiktor Malinowski, Quentin Roussey, and Wing Tat Yeung. Moorman missed a chance at winning two WSOP online bracelets this summer in the domestic and international legs when he took fourth place. France's Erwann Pecheux hit the bricks in sixth place.
Greece and Taiwan were the last two countries standing, but Greece prevailed when Yen-Liang Yao busted in second place. Georgios Sotiropoulos banked $117,022 for the win and bagged his second bracelet.
2021 WSOP Online Event #7 $1,500 Millionaire Maker attracted 5,437 runners and a prize pool that ballooned to nearly $7.75 million. Heck of a draw, eh? The final table included three players from Austria and three from Brazil. As expected, Brazil and Austria were the final two players battling for the Milly Maker bling. The final nine included Eduardo Pires, Lukas "rustyhusky" Hafner, Tauan Naves, Xiongbin "zxb8553624" Zhang, Paul "PaulRisman" Fisher, Victor Begara, Lachezar "Psychedelica" Petkov, Tomas "CoronaMyAss" Jozonis, and Oskar “brudi030” Prehm.
Lukas "rustyhusky" Hafner and Eduardo Pires squared off for the bling and seven-figure score. Hafner could not pull off a comeback and bowed out in second place, which paid out $984,469. Not too shabby, eh? Brazil's Pires earned his first WSOP bracelet and a first-place payout worth $1,384,013 as the Milly Maker champion.
