  1. The latest World Series of Poker Online event on GGPoker saw big names go close at the final table as Radmir Sadirov topped them all to win his first WSOP bracelet and $169,111. After a thrilling heads-up win against Portuguese player Joao Vieira, Sadirov bagged gold as his opponent missed out on his second piece of WSOP jewelry. Heading into the final table of seven players, it looked like it was the Russian player Sadirov’s title to lose. Sadirov had 258 antes, with a stack of 4.1 million chips, his nearest challenger being Yen-Liang Yao with 82 antes. It was Mukoro Gberevbie who was eliminated first, busting in seventh place for $24,159. Gberevbie called his stack off with [poker card="As"][poker card="Kd"] but couldn’t catch Joao Vieira, whose [poker card="Jh"][poker card="Jc"] rivered a full house on the [poker card="Ts"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7c"][poker card="9d"][poker card="Js"] board. With just six players remaining, Sam Greenwood lost his stack. The Canadian moved all-In for around 31 antes with [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Js"] only to be called by Sadirov with [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Qh"]. The flop of [poker card="As"][poker card="Qd"][poker card="6s"] gave Sadirov middle set, but Greenwood had a gutshot straight and flush draw. The [poker card="6h"] turn was no good for Greenwood and the [poker card="9d"] river ended the hand in the chip leader’s favor, busting Greenwood in sixth place for $33,413. The final table took 90 minutes in its entirety, and another quick bust-out sent a poker legend home without the bracelet. Dario Sammartino, who finished second in the 2019 WSOP Main Event too, busted when he called all-in with [poker card="Kc"][poker card="7c"] after Daniel Dvoress three-bet shoved with [poker card="As"][poker card="Qc"]. The [poker card="Jc"][poker card="Th"][poker card="7h"] flop put Sammartino into the lead, and that stayed the case after the [poker card="8h"] turn. The [poker card="Ad"] river, however, gave Dvoress top pair and that ousted Sammartino in fifth for $46,214. Four players remained, and while Dvoress had done well to eliminate a powerful foe, he couldn’t use that hand to propel a comeback. Shortest in chips, the Italian called all-in with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qs"] after Sadirov’s aggressive shove pre-flop with [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Td"]. The board of [poker card="Kh"][poker card="8s"][poker card="6d"][poker card="9c"][poker card="Jh"] saw Dvoress run out of luck as Sadirov hit top pair which was enough to send Sammartino home in fourth place for $63,918. After coming into play second in chips, Taiwanese player Yao busted in third place for $88,404 when his all-in move with [poker card="Jh"][poker card="Th"] met opposition with Sadirov’s easy call with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Ac"]. The flop of [poker card="9d"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7h"] almost locked up the hand for Sadirov, and Yao’s chances slimmed to a gutshot on the [poker card="As"] turn. Sadly for him, the [poker card="Jc"] river sent play heads up and denied Yao the chance to compete for the title. Sadirov held a lead going into the final duel, but it was not an insurmountable one, with Vieira holding 2.9 million antes against Sadirov’s 5.6 million. Those stacks stayed very similar in the early stages of the battle, and Sadirov only increased his lead shortly afterwards. Vieira, however, doubled up with pocket aces to close the gap to just a few antes to suggest a fightback was on the cards. Sadirov, however, was not going to be denied. Widening the gap a little, he then raised it up with [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Qc"] only for Vieira to shove with [poker card="Js"][poker card="Tc"]. The [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"][poker card="7s"] flop gave Vieira a gutshot straight draw, but the [poker card="As"] turn meant an eight and only an eight would do to turn it around. Sadly for the Portuguese player, the [poker card="Qd"] river gave Sadirov a full house and ended the event in the Russian’s favor. In what was an exciting event, 144 entries saw the top 20 places paid, with a $684,000 prize pool meaning Vieira earned $122,270 for his runner-up result. It was the eponymous Sadirov who won the top prize of $169,111 and his first WSOP bracelet in the $5,00-entry Short Deck event. WSOP GGPoker Event #18 $5,000 Short Deck Final Table Results: Radmir ‘KOPOBA’ Sadirov - $169,111 Joao Vieira - $122,270 Yen-Liang ‘yao_poker’ Yao - $88,404 Daniel Dvoress - $63,918 Dario Sammartino - $46,214 Sam Greenwood - $33,413 Mukoro ‘AnonAnomaly’ Gberevbie - $24,159
  2. Georgios Sotiropoulos made his way through 6,359 other entries to end up at a final table with another previous World Series of Poker bracelet winner, a high stakes cash game crusher, and six other players in WSOP Online Event #6 ($200 Flip & Go) on GGPoker. He then eliminated six of his final eight opponents to win his second career WSOP bracelet and $117,022. The Flip & Go format sees eight players seated at a table with all players all in on the first hand. Each table plays until only one player has chips. Those players advance into the next round where all players are in the money and the tournament plays down to a winner in a traditional format. The turbo structure all but guaranteed a fast-paced final table and it took just five minutes to go from nine players to eight. With blinds of 50,000/100,000, Sotiropoulos moved all in for 1,407,262 from middle position with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"]. Wing Tat Yeung called all in for his last 773,564 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="ks"]. Yeung stayed ahead after the [poker card="qh"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"] flop but the [poker card="ac"] turn gave Sotiropoulos a pair of aces. The river was the [poker card="2s"] and was no help to Yeung as he exited in ninth. Five minutes later, Sotiropoulos, who won his first WSOP bracelet in 2015 at WSOP Europe in am €1,100 NNLHE Turbo event, did it again. Markus Prinz shoved from the small blind for 259,080 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="9h"] and Sotiropoulos called from the big blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="tc"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"] gave Sotiropoulos top pair and left Prinz needing one of three tens or some runner-runner combination to stay alive. The turn was the [poker card="4d"] and the [poker card="8h"] river completed the board to eliminate Prinz in eighth place. The steamroller that was Sotiropoulos only had to wait four minutes for the next elimination. From UTG+1, Quentin Roussey moved all in for 477,614 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"] and action folded back to Sotiropoulos in the big blind and he called with [poker card="ah"][poker card="3c"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="th"][poker card="5s"] flop gave Sotiropoulos a pair of aces while Roussey was needing a jack for Broadway or some runner-runner runout to stay alive. The turn was the [poker card="3h"] leaving only the Broadway outs for Roussey. The [poker card="ad"] river gave Sotiropoulos a full house and ended Roussey's run in seventh. The next bustout hand took the table from six-handed to four-handed and it was none other than PocketFives legend Chris Moorman who was on the winning side. Wiktor Malinowski raised to 490,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="th"], Erwann Pecheux called off his last 166,269 from the small blind with [poker card="7h"][poker card="5h"], before Moorman jammed for 816,256 from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="ks"]. Malinowski called and everybody caught a piece of the [poker card="ad"][poker card="8c"][poker card="7c"] flop. The turn was the [poker card="qs"] and the [poker card="jd"] river gave Moorman the pot and eliminated Pecheux in sixth and Malinowski in fifth. Despite picking up that pot, Moorman's run didn't last much longer and once again it was Sotiropoulos in the driver's seat. Action folded around to Sotiropoulos in the small blind and he moved all in with [poker card="jh"][poker card="8d"] and Moorman briefly tanked before calling all in with [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="9d"][poker card="3c"] flop gave Sotiropoulos an open-ended straight draw. The [poker card="8h"] gave him a pair of eights leaving Moorman drawing to either one of three kings for a bigger pair or one of three remaining jacks for a king-high straight. The [poker card="qd"] river actually improved Sotiropoulos to a queen-high straight and ended Moorman's quest for a second 2021 WSOP Online bracelet with a fourth place finish. It took Sotiropoulos just 15 minutes to send his last two opponents to the rail to take home another bracelet. First up was Michael Van Elsacker. Yen-Liang Yao folded his button and Sotiropoulos raised to 1,600,000 from the small blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jh"] and Van Elsacker called off his last 646,620 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"][poker card="6s"] flop hit both players but Sotiropoulos moved ahead with a bigger pair. Neither the [poker card="9s"] turn or the [poker card="qc"] river were able to save Van Elsacker and he was out in third. Sotiropoulos started heads up play with 81% of the chips in play. Down to less than 15 big blinds, Yao moved all in with [poker card="kd"][poker card="tc"] and Sotiropoulos snap-called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"]. The flop came [poker card="kh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="5d"] flop moved Yao in front with a pair of kings. However, the [poker card="as"] turn put Sotiropoulos back on top with a pair of aces and the [poker card="7c"] river was no help for Yao and he was eliminated in second place while Sotiropoulos took down the tournament and earned $117,022 in the process.
