Although there has been some discussion of live poker venues reopening in the United States, this weekend the real action remained online.

Online grinders across New Jersey, Nevada, and Pennsylvania enjoyed some of the largest prize pools of the summer over the weekend, including the over $500,000 up for grabs in the Main Event of the WSOP.com Online Finale Circuit.

New Jersey’s Frank ‘spaghettiii’ Marasco outlasted the 718 players (391 rebuys) of the $525 buy-in WSOP.com Online Finale Circuit Main Event to take home a career-high score of $127,535 and a spot in the WSOP Online Global Casino Championship. This is Marasco’s second Circuit win of the year, having captured a gold ring during the WSOP Circuit live event in Atlantic City back in March.

Thomas ‘OtB_RedBaron’ Lim finished in second place and earned the $67,372.75 second-place prize. ‘artiliu’ wrapped up in third place which was good for $44,360.
