  1. Brad Zusman picked up one of his three cashes in the 2020 World Series of Poker Online the $500 No Limit Hold’em Summer Saver event, earning $1,067 for 177th place. Zusman’s first WSOP cash of the 2021 online series came in the same event, only this time it was for a first place prize of $79,683 and a WSOP gold bracelet. Friday’s event brought in 632 unique entrants and had 285 rebuys to build a prize pool of $412,650. Zusman had a roller coaster ride at the final table as he started with the second biggest stack at the table and fell down to below ten big blinds before eventually clawing his way back to the top. Nine-handed play lasted for 15 minutes before the final table had its first casualty of the night. Josh King min-raised to 160,000 from the cutoff and Jason Gooch re-raised to 480,000 on the button. Zusman folded in the small blind before David Nodes moved all-in for 1,311,374 chips out of the big blind with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"]. King folded and Gooch quickly called with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"]. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="6d"][poker card="2h"], bringing no help to Nodes who was knocked out in ninth place. About seven minutes passed before two quick eliminations occurred. Jeremy Menard was down to just 4.5 big blinds when he committed the majority of his stack with a raise to 400,000 in early position with [poker card="ks"][poker card="td"]. King called on the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"] and the two remaining players saw a flop of [poker card="9c"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4h"]. Menard moved all-in for his remaining 51,476 and King made the call. The [poker card="8d"] came on the turn and the [poker card="3s"] fell on the river to keep King’s ace-high in the lead and to eliminate Menard in eighth place. Two hands later, ‘KerriP’ went all-in with their remaining 855,024 chips from under the gun with [poker card="5s"][poker card="5h"]. Mark Ioli was next to act and made the call with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"], prompting folds from the rest of the table. ‘KerriP’ dodged trouble on the flop of [poker card="js"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2c"], but the [poker card="ac"] on the turn left ‘KerriP’ in need of a three or five on the river. The [poker card="6s"] completed the board and locked in a seventh place finish for ‘KerriP’. Six-handed play lasted for over 25 minutes before another elimination occurred. Orson Young min-raised to 240,000 and Gooch made the call in the big blind. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="9s"][poker card="2s"] and Gooch checked the action over to Young, who put in a continuation bet of 160,000. Gooch raised to 545,000 and Young called. The [poker card="kc"] fell on the turn and Gooch bet enough to put Young all-in. Young called off his remaining 1,142,272 chips with [poker card="qs"][poker card="th"] and found himself behind Gooch’s [poker card="9h"][poker card="2h"] two pair. Young was knocked out in sixth place when the [poker card="6c"] came on the river. Just under ten minutes passed before Gooch moved all-in for 2,920,773 chips in the cutoff with [poker card="ks"][poker card="jd"]. Action folded to Ioli in the big blind who quickly called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"]. The flop of [poker card="as"][poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"] added no drama to the hand and the [poker card="7c"] on the turn sealed the win for Ioli. A meaningless [poker card="8s"] on the river completed the board and eliminated Gooch in fifth place. The four players left at the final table continued to play for another eight minutes until Jeff Miller moved all-in for 3,007,504 from the small blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="6c"]. Ioli once again woke up with a big hand in the big blind with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"] and he made the call. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"][poker card="6h"] to give Miller a pair, but Ioli’s pocket nines were still best. The [poker card="2d"] on the turn and the [poker card="jc"] on the river brought no help for Miller, ending his night in fourth place. Less than five minutes passed before three-handed play came to an end. Ioli min-raised to 400,000 on the button and King moved all-in for 2,950,927 chips in the small blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"]. Zusman folded in the big blind and Ioli quickly called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"]. A flop of [poker card="jh"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2d"] brought in a flush draw for King, but the [poker card="7c"] on the turn and the [poker card="3c"] on the river sealed a third place finish for King. It took 90 minutes to get to heads-up play, and with both players sitting with stacks of over 40 big blinds, the stage seemed to be set for a long heads up battle. But the decisive hand came only 15 minutes after heads-up action started, including a five minute break. Ioli raised to 480,000 and Zusman re-raised up to 1,245,000. Ioli moved all-in for 7,944,932 chips holding [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"] and Zusman made the call with [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"]. Zusman jumped into the lead on a flop of [poker card="as"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3h"] that left Ioli in need of a queen. The [poker card="3d"] came on the turn and the [poker card="2c"] fell on the river to lock up the tournament victory for Zusman.

  2. Mitchell Halverson had earned seven cashes in the 2021 World Series of Poker Online events heading into Thursday’s $600 No Limit Hold’em Six Max Championship. His biggest cash over those seven events was for $2,878 when he finished 32nd in the $888 No Limit Hold’em Crazy Eights events. Halverson scored a much more significant strike Thursday, winning the tournament to secure an $84,057 score and his first WSOP gold bracelet. The $600 buy-in tournament drew in a total of 523 unique players and 260 rebuys, generating a total prize pool of $422,820. There were still some big names left in the mix with only three tables left to go including Bryan Piccioli (who was eliminated in 18th place for $2,875), Kristen Bicknell (15th - $3,594), Jesse Sylvia (11th - $4,524), Tony Dunst (9th - $5,835) and Ryan Laplante (8th, $7,611). But it was Halverson left standing tall when the dust settled on this event after over 10 hours of play. Drew O’Connell made it to the final table with just over one big blind remaining in his stack. As the other three remaining players in the tournament were moved to the final table, O’Connell was already in the process of moving all-in three-handed on the button for his final 118,170 chips. Joshua Faris called in the small blind and Nipun Java called in the big blind. Faris and Java both checked down through the river as the board ran out [poker card="ad"][poker card="8c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="ks"][poker card="8h"]. O’Connell’s [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"] fell short of Faris’s [poker card="kh"][poker card="3d"] and O’Connell was quickly knocked out in sixth place. The final table’s next elimination came just four hands later. Action folded around to James Gilbert in the small blind who moved all-in for his last 495,671 chips with [poker card="th"][poker card="5d"]. Gilbert’s attempted blind steal did not work out as Faris woke up with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="9h"] and made the call. Both players paired the board when the flop came [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"][poker card="5h"], but Gilbert would need help to survive. None came as the [poker card="4s"] fell on the turn and the [poker card="6h"] came on the river to eliminate Gilbert in fifth. Four-handed play lasted for nine minutes, although five of those were spent on break. Anthony Spinella folded under the gun and Halverson min-raised to 200,000 on the button with [poker card="ts"][poker card="tc"]. Faris folded in the small blind before Java moved all-in from the big blind for 2,402,264 chips with [poker card="ac"][poker card="2c"]. Halverson made the call to send the players to a flop of [poker card="kd"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7h"]. Java was looking for an ace or backdoor clubs until the [poker card="th"] fell on the turn to give Halverson a set and end the hand on the spot. A meaningless [poker card="jd"] on the river sealed Java’s fourth-place finish. Just over five minutes after Java’s elimination, all three of the remaining players had over 20 big blinds and it looked as though the fast-paced final table had settled down. Halverson folded on the button and the action moved to Faris who limped in on the small blind. Spinella checked his option and the two players went to a flop of [poker card="js"][poker card="9h"][poker card="7s"]. Fireworks went off as Faris checked, Spinella bet 142,500, Faris raised to 450,000, and Spinella moved all-in to 2,473,170. Faris quickly called with the [poker card="jh"][poker card="9c"], which was ahead of Spinella’s [poker card="jd"][poker card="7d"]. The [poker card="qd"] on the turn and [poker card="2s"] on the river brought no help to Spinella, who was eliminated in third place. Faris entered heads up play with 9,650,309 chips to Halverson’s 6,009,691. That lead only lasted for one hand as the two players got their chips all-in on the first hand of heads up play with Halverson holding the [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] and Faris holding [poker card="5d"][poker card="5c"]. The flop fell [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"][poker card="2s"] to give Halverson a substantial lead in the hand, which he held on to when the [poker card="jh"] on the turn and [poker card="6d"] on the river completed the board. The final hand of the tournament came about 10 minutes later. Halverson limped in to 120,000 and Faris raised to 442,500, prompting a call from Halverson. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="tc"][poker card="8d"] and both players checked. Faris bet 337,500 after the [poker card="9d"] fell on the turn and Halverson made the call. The [poker card="4c"] completed the board on the river and Faris put in a bet of 675,000. Halverson went into his time bank before moving all-in. Faris snap-called off his remaining 2,241,236 chips with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"], but his top pair was no good against Halverson’s [poker card="9c"][poker card="8h"]. The slow-played two pair earned Halverson the biggest cash of his career.
