  1. For the last five days, 38 poker players have been dreaming about having the possibility of becoming the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Main Event champion. That's how many players were left when the tournament was paused last Monday. Bryan Piccioli was the chip leader and online crushers Benjamine Rolle, Samuel Vousden, and Jonas Lauck were all still in contention. But as the 38 players began clicking buttons on Saturday afternoon, those four players were all pushed aside to make way for Serbian Stoyan 'Nirvana76' Madanzhiev. Piccioli was eliminated in 23rd place after coming out on the losing end of a massive pot with Julien Perouse before surrendering the remainder of his stack to Rolle. Lauck went out in 34th place while Vousden and Rolle went out in 12th and 11th place respectively. The final table started with Tyler Rueger in the lead and Madanzhiev in second place. Almost as quickly as Samuel Taylor took his seat at the final table, he was removed from it in brutal fashion. Wenling Gao raised to 1,400,000 from UTG+1 and Taylor, who started the final table with the sixth largest stack, called from middle position. The flop came [poker card="9s"][poker card="7h"][poker card="3c"] and Gao bet 1,750,000 and Taylor called. The turn was the [poker card="ac"] and Gao checked. Taylor bet 4,200,000 and Gao clicked back to 11,900,000. Taylor called. The [poker card="qs"] completed the board and Gao bet 8,750,000. Taylor moved all in for 9,918,268 and Gao snap-called. Taylor showed [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"] for a flopped set but Gao showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"] for top set to eliminate Taylor in ninth. It was 24 minutes before the next player was eliminated. Rueger raised to 1,400,000 from UTG+1. Tyler Cornell shoved his last 4,796,374 into the middle from Rueger's direct left. Action folded back around to Rueger and he called and showed [poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"]. Cornell tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"] but the [poker card="qs"][poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"] flop put Rueger in control. The [poker card="kd"] turn and [poker card="8h"] river changed nothing for Cornell and he was eliminated in eighth place. Gao found her second victim of the final table just a few moments later. Gao raised to 1,400,000 from UTG+1 before Stefan Schillhabel raised to 7,987,052. Gao re-raised to 25,606,156 and Schillhabel called off the last 2,100,000 in his stack. Gao tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"] and found out she was racing against Schillhabel's [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4c"] flop gave Gao the nut flush draw to go with her two overcards. The [poker card="kc"] turn gave her the nut flush and Schillhabel was eliminated in seventh place as the [poker card="5s"] completed the board. Rueger went back to work as the executioner just 35 minutes later. Rueger min-raised to 1,400,000 from the cutoff and Joao Santos moved all in for 9,061,138 from the big blind. Rueger called and turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"] which was bad news for Santos who tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="2s"]. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3s"] flop gave Santos some chop out and the [poker card="4h"] turn gave him extra outs for the win. The river was the [poker card="7s"] to miss both players to give Rueger the pot and eliminate Santos in sixth place. Four minutes later, Satoshi Isomae was sent to the rail. Madanzhiev raised to 1,540,000 from late position and Isomae re-raised from the small blind to 4,483,500. Madanzhiev called and the pair saw a flop of [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"][poker card="5c"]. Isomae bet 11,605,800 and Madanzhiev called. The turn was the [poker card="7h"] and both players checked to see the [poker card="6s"] river. Isomae moved all in for 23,411,295 and Madanzhiev called. Isomae showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"] for ace-high which wasn't good enough to beat Mandazhiev who flopped top two pair with [poker card="jd"][poker card="9d"]. Isomae was eliminated in fifth. On the very next hand, Gao was once again in charge of ending one of her foe's tournaments. Action folded to Thomas Ward on the button and he moved all in for 9,508,960 before Gao called from the small blind. Ward tabled [poker card="6c"][poker card="6s"] and Gao was ahead with [poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"]. The board ran out [poker card="qd"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8h"][poker card="js"][poker card="kc"] to eliminate Ward in fourth place. The inevitable confrontation between Gao and Rueger happened 14 minutes later. Gao raised to 1,400,000 from the button before Rueger raised to 4,395,000 from the big blind. Gao made it 9,800,000 to go and Rueger replied by moving all in for 48,697,202. Gao called and showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"] while Rueger tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"]. Rueger whiffed on the [poker card="8d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6c"] flop and got no relief via the [poker card="8c"] turn or [poker card="2c"] river and was eliminated in third place. Madanzhiev held an eight big blind lead over Gao when heads up play began. Madanzhiever ceased control as the pair battled for a half hour. On the final hand of the tournament, Gao raised to 1,600,000 and Madanzhiev called. The flop came [poker card="5c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3s"] and Madanzhiev bet 1,700,000. Gao raised to 3,944,000 and Madanzhiev called. The [poker card="8h"] turn got Madanzhiev to check. Gao bet 5,644,000 and Madanzhiev raised to 15,040,000. Gao moveda all in for 8X,000,000 and Madanzhiev called. Gao tabled [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"] but Madanzhiev showed [poker card="7d"][poker card="6h"] for a flopped straight that improved on the turn. The meaningless river was the [poker card="8s"] and Gao was eliminated in second place giving Madanzhiev the 2020 WSOP Online Main Event bracelet and just over $3.9 million. After his victory, the Bulgarian 29-year-old was ready to celebrate.   Final Table Payouts Stoyan Madanzhiev - $3,904,686 Wenling Gao - $2,748,605 Tyler Rueger - $1,928,887 Thomas Ward - $1,353,634 Satoshi Isomae - $949,937 Joao Santos - $666,637 Stefan Schillhabel - $467,825 Tyler Cornell - $328,305 Samuel Taylor - $230,395
  2. Las Vegas poker pro Jeffrey Dobrin’s persistence has paid off. After weeks of grinding the 2020 World Series of Poker, he not only made his first final table but ended up winning Event #80 ($600 Six-Max People’s Choice Event - Pros Vote) for $189,666 and his first career gold bracelet. One look at Dobrin’s Hendon Mob profile will tell you that he’s been on the WSOP grind all summer long. Prior to his gold bracelet run, Dobrin, a two-time WSOP Circuit ring winner, racked up fifteen total 2020 WSOP results both on WSOP.com and GGPoker. Although he had been cashing regularly, all of the results only accounted for just under $25,000 in earnings, an average of roughly $1,600 per event. While Dobrin hadn’t really even been close to making the big money this summer (his deepest result was a 31st place finish), when it counted he made all the right moves to capture what is one of the biggest cashes of his career. The action of the final table kicked off with one of poker’s most notable names hitting the rail in short order. After making an incorrect hero call just minutes before, six-time WSOP bracelet winner Chris Ferguson shipped his short stack in from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="2h"] only to run into the [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] of Joao Santos in the small blind. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="qh"][poker card="6h"][poker card="js"][poker card="qc"] board ran out clean for Joao’s pocket aces and the former Full Tilt Pro hit the rail in ninth place for $14,404. Nearly thirty minutes later, Japan’s Hiroki Morishita, with less than five big blinds left in his stack, moved in from the small blind with [poker card="8h"][poker card="6s"]. He was called by Marc MacDonnell in the big blind holding [poker card="qs"][poker card="7h"]. The [poker card="5c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2d"] brought Morishita some additional straight outs which he smashed on the [poker card="3s"] turn. However, the river brought the [poker card="6h"] giving MacDonnell a higher straight and eliminating Morishita in eighth place for $20,034. Next, it was Arvhin Malinab’s turn to ship from the small blind as he moved his short stack all in with [poker card="6c"][poker card="6h"] and was called by Sergio Veloso in the big blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="js"][poker card="8h"] flop kept Malinab ahead but gave Veloso some additional backdoor outs. The [poker card="ts"] turn helped Veloso by opening up both flush and open-ended straight outs. The [poker card="qd"] completed the backdoor possibilities bringing Veloso the straight and sending Malinab and his pocket sixes out the door in seventh for $27,863. Even with the knockout, Veloso was still one of the short stacks. He found his spot to pick up chips when, after a Vahe Martirosyan open, Dobrin three-bet shipped on the button holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] which allowed Veloso to move all in for less with the [poker card="th"][poker card="tc"]. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="7d"][66] giving Dobrin top pair and leaving Veloso looking for help. The [poker card="kd"] hit the turn and the [poker card="jd"] fell on the river sending Veloso out in sixth place for $38,752. Minutes later MacDonnell moved his eight big blind stack all in from under the gun holding [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"]. It folded around to Joao Santos in the big blind who snap-called with his [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"]. The flop came [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"][poker card="9s"] giving Joao a set and leaving MacDonnell looking for a gutshot straight or some backdoor help. All of that was put to rest though when the [poker card="jh"] hit the turn, giving Joao quads and leaving MacDonnell drawing dead to the [poker card="2c"] river. MacDonnell finished in fifth place for $53,897. Santos’ stack slipped for the better part of thirty minutes when he found himself all in and at risk. Idris Ambraisse shipped roughly fourteen big blinds from the button holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="js"] and Santos decided to make the call for less with his [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"]. The board ran out [poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2d"][poker card="8d"] giving the hand to Ambraisse’s ace-high and sending Santos out in fourth place for $74,960. It was anyone’s tournament at three-handed with stack sizes all running close together. Eventually, after a big hand that left Martiosyan short, he moved all in from the button holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"] and was called by Dobrin in the big blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="8h"][poker card="4d"] flop put Martiosyan in bad shape, looking for runner-runner outs. The [poker card="4h"] turn was not one of them, leaving Martiosyan drawing dead before the [poker card="3s"] hit the river. Martiosyan settled for third place and $104,255. Ambraisse held a slight chip lead over Dobrin at the start of heads-up play, however a few key hands turned the tide in Dobrin’s favor. Ambraisse found a late-game double but on the very next hand, Dobrin was able to close it out when both players woke up with premium heads up hands. Ambraisse called on the button with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"] and Dobrin raised holding [poker card="kd"][poker card="kc"]. Ambraisse shipped and Dobrin snap-called with the chip lead. The [poker card="8d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="5d"] board gave the hand and the bracelet to Dobrin. Ambraisse ended up as the runner up and walked away with $144,998. Jeffrey Dobrin earned the $189,666 first-place prize, a $12,000 package to participate in the World Series of Europe, and his first career gold bracelet. Final Table Payouts Jeffrey Dobrin - $189,666 Idris Ambraisse - $144,998 Vahe Martirosyan - $104,255 Joao Santos - $74,960 Marc MacDonnell - $53,897 Sergio Veloso - $38,752 Arvhin Malinab - $27,863 Hiroki Morishita - $20,034 Chris Ferguson - $14,404
