The third time was definitely the charm as far as field sizes go in the 2020 World Series of Poker Online. On Friday, Event #3 ($400 No Limit Hold'em), the lowest buy-in event on the schedule to date, drew the largest turnout to date with 2,091 total entries creating a $752,760 prize pool. After a little more than 12 hours of play, Robert 'bustinballs' Kuhn emerged victorious to win his first WSOP bracelet and $115,849.76. The win came just a few hours after he picked up another victory on WSOP.com to bring his daily earnings just north of $136,000. Starting the final table with just six big blinds, 'AndrewFreund' needed to find a spot to double up. After action folded to 'AndrewFreund' in late position, he moved all-in for 658,052 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"] and the second shortest remaining, Max 'ndirish50' Huster, moved all-in over the top with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3s"] flop put a quick end to any drama and 'AndrewFreund' was officially eliminated in ninth place following the [poker card="9s"] turn and [poker card="jh"] river. Kuhn and Roland 'prngls12' Israelashvili then engaged in a pre-flop raising war that saw the six-time WSOP Circuit ring winner sent packing. Holding [poker card="td"][poker card="th"], Israelshvili raised to 240,000 from UTG before Kuhn re-raised to 705,000 from the hijack with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. Israelshvili then moved all-in for 3,257,635 and Kuhn called. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="4d"] flop changed nothing and the [poker card="3s"] turn and [poker card="6c"] river sealed Israelshvili's eighth place finish. Ten minutes later 'pokeher2014' moved all-in for 1,641,622 from middle position with [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"] and 'kulbot' called from the small blind with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2s"] runout failed to give 'pokeher2014' any assistance and they were eliminated in seventh place. A multi-way pot led to the next elimination just five minutes later. Keren opened to 320,000 from UTG, Kuhn called from UTG+1, 'Doc33' called from the button, and Evan 'Escott121181' Scott defended his big blind. The flop came [poker card="th"][poker card="6h"][poker card="3s"] and Scott moved all-in for 2,671,929. Keren and Kuhn both folded but 'Doc33' called. Scott showed [poker card="td"][poker card="8h"] but found himself outpipped when 'Doc33' tabled [poker card="tc"][poker card="9c"]. The [poker card="5d"] turn and [poker card="jd"] river both kept 'Doc33' in front and Scott was eliminated in sixth. The momentum continued for 'Doc33' a few minutes later and he turned it into another elimination and the chip lead. Kuhn raised to 320,000 as the first to act, Max 'ndirish50' Huster shoved for 1,451,606, and 'Doc33' called from the button. Kuhn folded. 'Doc33' flipped over [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"] and he once again had his opponent dominated as Huster showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3h"] flop gave both players top pair, the [poker card="2h"] turn gave Huster the nut flush draw and chop outs, but the [poker card="qd"] river gave 'Doc33' two pair and the pot to eliminate Huster in fifth place. 'Doc33' continued to steamroll and a few minutes after ending Huster's bracelet run, they did the same thing to another player. From UTG, 'klubot' moved all-in for 2,259,071 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="jh"] and 'Doc33' called with [poker card="ah"][poker card="7c"] in the big blind. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="8c"][poker card="5h"] flop gave 'klubot' the lead and the [poker card="tc"] turn changed nothing. The [poker card="ac"] river, however, gave 'Doc33' yet another pot and sent 'klubot' out in fourth. Three-handed play carried on for 25 minutes and despite starting with the chip lead, 'Doc33' was the next one out the door. Kuhn raised to 810,000 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"] from the small blind and 'Doc33' clicked back to 2,332,500 from the big blind holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"]. Kuhn responded by shoving all in for 15,444,620 and 'Doc33' called all in for 10,045,975. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="td"] to eliminate 'Doc33' in third. Heads-up play began with Kuhn holding a 5-1 chip lead over Keren and through 45 minutes of play, Keren battled back to hold the lead himself only to see it fall back into Kuhn's hands one final time. Down to just five big blinds, Keren three-bet shoved for 2,075,000 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"] after Kuhn opened to 800,000 with [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="jd"][poker card="7s"] flop gave Keren all kinds of outs but neither the [poker card="4c"] nor the [poker card="2d"] river was any help and Kuhn eliminated him to win his first WSOP bracelet and $115,850.
