Two-time WSOP bracelet winner, Nick Petrangelo, took down the World Poker Tour Online Event #4 $3,200 6-Max Championship.

The 2020 World Poker Tour Online continued with its summer series of online poker events. Paul Tedeschi took down the kick-off event with a victory in Event #1 $3,200 PLO 8. Paul Tedeschi worked out a three-way deal with Dan Shak and Anssi Kinttala. In the second event on the docket, Alex Manzano outlasted a tough field to take down Event #2 $3,200 PLO Championship that included a final table with Mike Leah and Benny Glasser. Over in WPT Online Event #3 $3,200 8-Max Championships, Gavin Cochrane was the last player standing in the $3 million guaranteed event. Cochrane faded a final table that also included Thomas Boivin, Lars Kamphues, Daniel Colpoys, and Sam Grafton.
But in WPT Online Event #4 $3,200 6-Max Championships, a total of 999 runners took a shot at the glory and small mountain of cash. The top 120 places paid out with $494K set aside to the eventual champion.
The final table for WPT Online Event #4 6-Max included seven players... Nick Petrangelo, Artsiom Prostak, Arsenii Karmatckii, Patrice Brandt, Jiachen Gong, Elior Sion, and Jake Schindler.
Schindler hit the bricks in seventh place, followed by Sion in sixth place.
Belarus' Artsiom Prostak got heads-up with Petrangelo. Prostak busted in second place and earned $368,250 for a runner-up finish. Not too shabby, eh?
Petrangelo banked $494,550 for the WPT Online 6-Max Championship victory.

He edged out Elio Fox heads-up for his second bracelet. His 100K final table also included Stephen Chidwick, Bryn Kenney, and Jason Koon.
He almost shipped two WSOP High Rollers in the glorious summer of 2018, but he took third place in the $50K High Roller.

Petrangelo came close to winning a $100K Aplha8 High Roller when he busted in second place and finished as a runner-up behind Fedor Holz.
He also posted another runner-up in a High Roller event at the 2017 PCA when Petrangelo busted in second place in the $25K High Roller after he lost a heads-up joust against Canada's Luca Greenwood.
