It's finally over. The 2020 World Series of Poker Online concluded with its final events at GGPoker. It's been a long and wild ride with the pandemic-version of the virtual running of the WSOP that was split between WSOP.com and GGPoker. Americans played on WSOP.com for a hot at a bracelet and poker glory, while the rest of the world competed at GGPoker for their chance at winning bling and small mounds of cash.
The final table for Event #82 Beat the Pros included... Melika 'Melirazavii' Razavi, Dylan "mezcal" Linde, Andre "ubermensch1" Difelice, Leonid Yanovski, Martin Zamani, Mike Leah, Peter "BIG CHI" Chien, Elio Fox, and Vadim "Danis_Love" Stoyanov.
Iran and USA got heads-up for the bracelet. Iran's Melika 'Melirazavii' Razavi picked off Linde and won her first bracelet and banked $239,180 for the Beat the Pros event.
Dylan "mezcal" Linde banked $147,447 for a runner-up finish. Not too shabby, eh?
Meanwhile, over in the 2020 WSOP Online Event #83 $10K WSOP Super MILLION$, that closing event attracted 899 runners and a prize pool worth $8.7 million, in the $5 million guaranteed event. The top 134 places paid out with the top two players earned at least a seven-figure payout.
The final table for Event #83 Super MILLION$ included... Connor Drinan, Daniyar Aubakirov, Viktor Ustimov, Chris Oliver, Sylvain Loosli, Suraj Mishra, Chris Kruk, Arsenii Malinov, and Kenneth Smaron.
Kazakhstan and USA battled heads-up for the bracelet in the Super MILLION$. Connor Drinan knocked out Daniyar Aubakirov and won the bling and $1.4 million. Daniyar Aubakirov busted in second place, but he banked $1.04 million.
Drinan also banked an extra $100,000 in a bracelet prop bet against Daniel Negreanu. It took Drinan until the final event to win the wager, but better later than never. Negreanu whiffed in his quest to win a bracelet and numerous bracelet prop bets during the summer online series.

He took advantage of the moment to ship his fourth career piece of hardware. The final event at GGPoker attracted 4,012 runners and a payout in excess of $2 million.

It was Belgium vs China heads up for the final bling. And Belgium was the last one standing.
Tyan Li busted in second place, which paid out $184K for a second-place finish. Not too shabby, eh?
Gathy banked $272,504 for the victory and he earned his fourth bracelet. Hell yeah! Heck of a way to wrap up the 2020 WSOP Online.
