The World Series of Poker Online is currently underway on WSOP.com and GGPoker. While WSOP.com only focuses on the US, GGPoker offers its events worldwide. In this article, we’re going to make a short overview of four GGPoker events in the last couple of days, so let’s check them out.
Event #32: $100 The Opener
Event #32 was the first GGPoker event, and it was one of the most affordable WSOP bracelet events ever, attracting 29,306 entries from all over the world. It lasted for more than a week and the player who managed to win it was a Brazilian named Marcelo “Marolo” Jakovljevic Pudla, who won a total of $265,880.
Pudla has just one cash recorded on his Hendon Mob page, meaning that this was his first WSOP cash ever, and it came with a bracelet. Other players who had a lot of success in this event were Ronit “Songjoy” Chamani and Dejan “627265” Karadjordjevic.
Event #33: $1,111 Every 1 for COVID Relief
This event attracted 2,323 entries, and it started last week. However, after a while, it was postponed due to some technical difficulties on the site, but that didn’t matter for Alek “astazz” Stasiak from Canada, who still managed to top the event and win the final prize of $343,204.
Most of Stasiak’s live cashes were recorded at the Playground Poker Club, where he has been playing the game since 2013. Apart from his most significant cash ever, the Canadian also received a gold bracelet by topping this charity event.
His final opponent was an Argentinian Martin “colinchow” Ilobera, who won $246,766 as the runner-up.
Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em
Event #39 saw Roberto Romanello win his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet, as well as the prize of $212,613. By winning this event he also became the Triple Crown winner, meaning he won a WSOP bracelet, European Poker Tour and World Poker Tour Main Event. This is something that only nine players managed to do.
His final opponent was Niklas Astedt from Sweden who held most chips during most of the event, but he had to settle for the second place and the consolation prize of $156,905 in Event #39.
Event #40: $2,500 Pot Limit Omaha
Event #40 was the third PLO event that was part of the 2020 WSOP Online on GGPoker. It attracted a total of 532 entries, and the prize pool they created was $1,253,500. Simon Klas Lofberg from Sweden was the one to take down the event, winning a total of $224,493 for his effort.
Lofberg faced fellow Scandinavian player in the heads-up, a Norwegian poker lover Andreas Torbergsen, who won $164,553.
Several additional events are currently underway on GGPoker, and several more are starting this week. The online version of the WSOP turned out to be quite successful, attracting thousands of players from all over the globe.
