  1. Gediminas Uselis, one of Lithuania’s top online grinders, continued to add to his World Series of Poker accolades on Sunday by winning WSOP Event #76 ($400 FORTY STACK) for $227,186 and his first gold bracelet. With over $2.5 million in online earnings and another $330,000 in live tournament results, Uselis has been spending the past year racking up wins in WSOP events. In November 2019, he grabbed his first live WSOP Circuit ring with a victory in the first-ever $2,200 High Roller the WSOPC Choctaw stop. He followed that up with an online victory in the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series on GGPoker for his second ring. On Sunday night he used that experience (and three bullets) to navigate the 4,461-entry field of Event #76 to claim a career-high cash and yet another piece of WSOP hardware. It didn’t take long for the first player to fall at the final table. Uselis put in a raise from early position with [poker card="qc"][poker card="ts"] and Nicolau Villa Lobos shipped his short stack for slightly more holding [poker card="kd"][poker card="qd"]. Yucheng Xiao made the call from the cutoff with [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] and Uselis also came along. Uselis and Xiao checked it down through the [poker card="8c"][poker card="as"][poker card="5h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4h"] runout, giving the hand to Xiao who paired his ace. Villa Lobos departed in ninth place. Brazil’s Guilherme Dos Santos was running on fumes when he faced a late open raise from Andrew Wilson who opened with [poker card="ac"][poker card="6c"]. Dos Santos made his stand with [poker card="8h"][poker card="4d"] from the small blind. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"] flop left Dos Santos looking for serious help. The [poker card="th"] turn had him drawing dead to the [poker card="2c"] river and Dos Santos exited in eighth place. A classic cooler was responsible for the end of Michelle Roberts’ tournament as she got her stack in the middle holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"] against the [poker card="ah"][poker card="as"] of Israel’s Yaniv Bohadana. The [poker card="jh"][poker card="8d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="7c"] board ran clean for the pocket aces and left with less than a small blind in her stack, Roberts lost the very next hand to finish in seventh place. The rapid bustouts continued as Wilson put in a raise with [poker card="qh"][poker card="6h"] only to be shoved on by Xiao holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"]. Wilson opted to go with it and made the call. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="jc"][poker card="9h"] flop put Wilson in the lead but opened the door for Xiao to hit a gutshot straight in addition to his ace. The [poker card="2c"] was no help and the [poker card="qd"] improved Wilson to trip queens and sent Xiao to the rail in sixth place. From under the gun, Espen Jorstad put in half of his short stack in with [poker card="6h"][poker card="6d"] only to be shoved on for less by Bohadana holding [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] in the small blind. Wilson folded his big blind and Jostad made the call, leaving himself with only a few chips behind. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"][poker card="3c"] flop all but locked up the hand but when the [poker card="9h"] hit the turn, flush outs opened up for Jorstad. However it was the [poker card="qs"] that fell on the river awarding the hand to Bohadana and leaving Jorstad crippled. Jorstad was eliminated on the very next hand in fifth place. From the button, Silviya Kaymakchieva put in a raise holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="8d"] only to be reraised by Wilson in the big blind with [poker card="jh"][poker card="js"]. Kaymakchieva made the call with their tournament on the line. The board ran out [poker card="6d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="3h"][poker card="9d"] never gave Wilson’s jacks a sweat and Kaymakchieva fell in fourth place. At three-handed Uselis made his move, doubled through Wilson and climbed the chip counts to eventually take over the chip lead. He scored his second knockout of the final table when he shipped his stack from the small blind holding [poker card="2s"][poker card="2h"] and Bohadana made the call with his final ten big blinds with [poker card="qd"][poker card="js"]. The flop came [poker card="th"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3d"] giving Bohadana open-ended straight outs in addition to his overcards. The [poker card="7s"] turn didn’t help and the [poker card="2d"] river improved Uselis to a set and sent Bohadana home in third place. The thirty-minute heads up match saw the chip lead pass back-and-forth between Uselis and Wilson a number of times. The final hand was a big one as Wilson called on the button with [poker card="kc"][poker card="8c"] and Uselis checked his option holding [poker card="js"][poker card="7d"]. The flop came [poker card="7s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="9c"]. Uselis checked, Wilson put in a bet. Uselis called and the [poker card="7h"] hit the turn. Both players checked. The [poker card="7c"] fell on the river. Uselis, covering Wilson, open shoved his quads. Wilson, with the king-high flush, tanked but ultimately called, ending his run as the runner-up. Gediminas Uselis took home $211,282, a package to play in World Series of Poker Europe, and his first career gold bracelet. Final Table Results Gediminas Uselis - $211,282 Andrew Wilson - $159,705 Yaniv Bonhadana - $114,237 Silviya Kaymakchieva - $81,714 Espen Jorstad - $58,450 Yucheng Xiao - $41,809 Michelle Roberts - $29,906 Guilherme Dos Santos - $21,392 Nicolau Villa Lobos - $15,302
