Raj Vohra Wins First Bracelet in $600 Deepstack Event #11

Raj Vohra beat Qing Liu to win his first-ever WSOP bracelet and $335,286 after triumphing at a tricky final table. After French player Renaud Cellini busted in ninth place for $31,574, the eliminations of Stanislav Snitsar (8th for $40,378) and Ralph Marquez (7th for $52,035), saw only six left in the hunt for gold.

After Junxiu Zhang (6th for $67,572) and Michael Lin (5th for $88,417) busted, Nicole Limo Greene ended her tournament in fourth place. Greene, who saw her ace-six taken out by the eventual winner’s ace-eight, cashed for $116,568 but missed out on the podium places. That left three men in the race for the title and after Hung Tran (3rd for $154,831) lost out on the heads-up battle, it was a two-horse race.

Liu, who started the final duel behind in chips and needing to improve, thought he’d found the perfect hand to close out the win when, marginally ahead, his pocket sixes were all-in against Vohra’s ace-king, but an ace on the turn gave Liu’s opponent almost all of the chips and a short time later, it was all over, Vohra the man to claim the top prize and a first-ever WSOP bracelet.

Schindler Claims Maiden Bracelet in $50,000 High Roller

Jake Schindler was the least popular winner of a World Series of Poker bracelet when he took down the $50,000-entry High Roller Event #12 for a score of over $1.3 million. Schindler, who has been accused of cheating by multiple high stakes players, has not been banned by the EPT as he has been by other tours, and so is playing tournaments, evidently very well by recent success.

It was the overnight chip leader Brek Schutten who finished second to Schindler, cashing for over $820,000 himself after another deep run in what is already a stunning summer for the American. Punnat Punsri finished in third place as the Thai player cashed for $593,481.

With other big names at the final table such as 2019 WSOP Main Event runner-up Dario Sammartino (8th for $151,942) and David Peters (5th for $326,464) both cashing too, the final table – which was streamed live on PokerGO – will be a memorable one for the winner whether anyone else tunes in to watch it on demand again or not.

Michael Moncek Wins Limit Finale as Zhu Comes Close

It didn’t take long for Michael Moncek to dominate the opposition in Event #13, otherwise known as the $1,500-entry Limit Hold’em event. Moncek won the top prize of $145,86 at a final table that saw former WSOP Main Event winner Joe McKeehen in the field on the last day.

McKeehen would bust in fifth place for $32,761 as the final day started with 16 players from the 522 players that took part and Yueqi Zhu busted in third place for $63,314.

Soma Claims Event #14 Victory

A dramatic Event #14 saw Leo Soma win the $1,500 buy-in 6-Max No Limit Hold’em event for his first bracelet. A fun final table saw WSOP Main Event winner from 2009 Joe Cada bust in seventh place for $61,098 as his pocket kings were beaten by Soma’s ace-king won the pot and started the ball rolling for what would transpire to be a dominant final table showing.

Soma roared to victory, claiming the best part of half a million dollars at a final table where plenty of players busted despite going all-in with the best hand. Ivan Zhechev lost in sixth place for $81,188 and when the overnight chip leader Daniel Wellborn lost his stack in fourth place for $148,171 Soma looked good for the win.

Soma’s runaway train to victory made a couple more stops before easing into the final station having skittled Gallardo in third and Schultz heads up. As Soma won, his rail of French supporters erupted with delight to celebrate his best career score of $456,889.

Dan Zack Wins Second WSOP Bracelet After Marathon Heads Up

Dustin Dirksen and Daniel Zack played out an intense heads-up battle for an incredible seven hours, with Zack eventually winning $440,757 and his second gold bracelet. It was a very busy final table, with Yuval Bronshtein finishing in third place for $195,203 before Dirksen and Zack began to duke it out.

Eventually, after seven long hours where each man had come from behind numerous times to take the chip lead only to lose it again, Zack prevailed to take his second gold bracelet at a final table where Jake Liebeskind (5th for $105,913) and Ray Dekhharghani (4th for $142,456) both cashed too. It was at past four in the morning that Zack’s pocket kings helped him become a WSOP champion for a second time, winning over $440,000 as he did so.
