Vamooooooos! Brazil added another bracelet victory to the mix during the 2021 World Series of Poker Online at GGPoker. It's been a fun summer for the Brazilians, who love to play in the WSOP whether its a live or online tournament. In the opening days of the 2021 WSOP at GGPoker, Joao Simao binked Event #2 $1,111 Caesars Cares Charity for his first bracelet and the first bracelet victory for Brazil. Then earlier in the week, Brazil notched two more pieces of bling with bracelet victories in Event #4 Double Chance and Event #7 Milly Maker. Vamooooooos!
2021 WSOP Online Event #8 $5,000 NL 6-Handed attracted 479 runners and a prize pool worth $2,275,250. Most of the cheesecake was set aside to the top three places, but the final five locked up at least six figures.
Daniel Smiljkovic from Germany was the last player standing in the $5K bracelet event. The bracelet came down to Germany versus China with Smiljkovic knocking out Xuming "scplayer" Qi during their heads-up battle. Qi banked $306K for a runner-up finish in Event #8. Not too shabby, eh? Smiljkovic banked $423,426 for the win and snagged his first bracelet.
The final table for Event #8 included Christodoulos "P0t RippeR" Christodoulou, Marius Gierse, American George Wolff, Yonatan "itayalenbi" Koko, Aki "Seabossss" Virtanen.
2021 WSOP Online Event #9 $525 Superstack Turbo was one of those quick-fire events that are not for the faint of heart. Event #9 attracted a field of 2,229 runners and a prize pool that went north of $1.1 million.
The final table for Event #9 included Lucio "WizardOfAz" Lima, Anson Tsang, Krzysztof "ZryjGruz" Dulowski, Johnathon "Resolve" French, Stanislav Kuvaev, Joaquin Melogno, Yngve "IAMWILLIAM" Steen, Daisuke "REDJOE" Ogita, and William "BigCharles" Romaine. The international table included players from Hong Kong, Japan, Poland, Canada, USA, Norway, Uruguay, Poland, and Brazil.
Japan's Ogita busted in eighth place but missed out on Japan's first bracelet this year. Poland's Dulowski bowed out in third place, which set up a heavyweight bout between pro Anson Tsang and Brazil's Lucio "WizardOfAz" Lima.
Alas, Tsang could not rally back to defeat Lima. Tsang banked $66,918 in tournament winnings plus bounties, but he missed a chance to win his third WSOP bracelet. Lima aka 'WizardOfAz' banked nearly an equal share of bounties and prize pool winnings with a total haul worth $95,206.
The 2021 WSOP Online continues at GGPoker with Double Stack NL and Double Chance PLO on the slate for this weekend. Plus, there's the Super Millions High Roller, so don't miss out on the high balla action at the SUPER MILLION$.
