The 2020 World Series of Poker Online on GGPoker continued over the weekend with three WSOP bracelets being awarded, and the final day being reached in Event #77: $5,000 Main Event.
Trygve Leite Wins First WSOP Bracelet in $300 Double Stack
The Event #75: $300 Double Stack No-Limit Holde’em kicked off Saturday action on GGPoker, and attracted 3,552-entrants and created a prize pool of $991,008 that paid the top 440 finishers.
Some players finishing in-the-money included Dara O’Kearney, Rob Hollink, Patrick Mahoney, Adrian Buckley, Chris Moorman, and Blake Bohn. Emanuele Monari entered the final table as chip leader but would inevitably have to settle for second-place as Trygve Leite emerged victorious to collect the $130,100 first-place prize and the added WSOP Europe package.
Leite had already cashed five times during the series with his deepest run being a 12th-place finish in Event #61. Leite also becomes the fifth player from Norway to win a WSOP bracelet as he joins Thor Hansen, Annette Obrestad, Sigurd Eskeland, and Espen Sandvik.
Gediminas Uselis Captures $400 FORTY Stack and First WSOP Bracelet
The Event #76: $400 FORTY STACK No-Limit Hold’em began Sunday action on GGPoker with a total of 4,461 entrants creating a $1,677,336 prize pool.
Mahoney collected his second cash of the day as some of the 548 in-the-money finishes also included Brian Rast, Christopher Kruk, Artur Martirosian, and Fabrizio Gonzalez. Andrew Wilson held the chip lead entering the final table – and nearly double his nearest rival – and in a similar fashion to Event #75, his fate would see him finish in second place behind Gediminas Uselis.
For his win, Uselis collected the $211,282 first-place prize and an added WSOP Europe package. Uselis also becomes just the second WSOP bracelet winner from Lithuania joining Vladas Burneikis who won the Event #49: $500 Turbo Deepstack earlier in the series.
Adnan Hacialioglu Tops $1,000 Turbo 8-Handed Field for $259,842
The Event #78: $1,000 Turbo 8-Handed attracted a 1,910-entrant field and created a prize pool of $1,814,500. It would take just over seven hours of play before Finland’s Adnan Hacialioglu was crowned the champion as he collected the $259,842 first-place prize, an added WSOP Europe package, and his first WSOP bracelet.
Some of the players finishing in-the-money included Tim West in third-place, along with Bohn, Joao Vieira, Kevin Eyster, Joseph Orsino, Kosei Ichinose, Ivan Luca, and Lars Kamphues,
