Another real money poker event that’s part of the World Series of Poker Online wrapped up successfully. It was an NLH Grand Finale event that required the buy-in of $500 and attracted a total of 1,355 players with 669 rebuys.
Therefore the field consisted of 2,024 entries, making Event #33 the largest in the series. The guaranteed prize was $1 million, and it lasted for approximately 12 hours, with Dan “Feeltheflow” Sindelar winning the main prize — $159,100.
Before this win, Sindelar had a total of 117 WSOP-related cash earnings, earning $1,802,580 from live poker. In fact, he was close to winning a bracelet just a couple of weeks ago, when he took part in the WSOP Online Event #12: $500 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo Deepstack, where he needed a runner up, winning $51,527.
Still, Dan Sindelar’s biggest WSOP-related cash was won in the 2014 WSOP Main Event, where he made it to seventh place in the final table and managed to earn a total of $1,235,862.
The entire 2021 WSOP Online series was pretty successful for Sindelair, as he managed to earn a total of $221,081, in addition to his first gold bracelet.
The first 290 players made it to the money list, and a player nicknamed “NoLimitFit” was the unlucky one who burst the bubble. Some of the players who made it to the money list but failed to make it to the final table are Mike Matusow, Jeff Madsen, Shankar Pillai, and Darren Elias.
The Final Table
Everyone at the final table had a chance to win the gold bracelet, but the first one to hit the rail was Dan Gallegos after his pair of queens lost to “chuckybrown9’s” straight on the river.
The next player to leave the tournament was Anna “Dusty4” Antimony, the last woman in the tournament. She lost all chips as eight-placed and earned a total of $16,700 for her effort.
Antimony was busted by Guy Dunlap, who continued his streak by scoring another elimination against Conrad Simpson, who ended in the seventh position and earned $21,900.
The next one in line was “chuckybrown9,” who had ace-five suited but lost to pocket jacks that Stanley Lee had. The unnamed player won $29,000. Stanley Lee continued scoring eliminations by sending Drew Gonzales to the rail in fifth.
The fourth place was reserved for Guy Dunlap, who managed to win a total of $52,400. Finally, the last player to leave the game before the heads-up is Fred “stakes” Li, who earned $71,500 from this event.
Dan Sindelar’s final opponent was Stanley Lee. In fact, Lee had a 3:1 chip advantage at the start of the heads-up part of the tournament. However, Sindelar managed to turn the tables and increase his chip size a lot until finally winning against Lee. Stanley Lee had to settle for second place and the consolation prize of $98,400, whereas Sindelar celebrated his first gold bracelet after so many WSOP-related tournaments.
