  1. Phil Hellmuth is in pole position to make it ‘sweet sixteen’ as he has made it to the final table of the 19th event of the 2021 World Series of Poker with a chip lead in the Seven Card Stud Championship. Hellmuth, otherwise known as ‘The Poker Brat’, bagged up 751,000 to lead the final seven, with Anthony Zinno close behind him in the counts on 730,000 chips. Hellmuth, Chidwick, McCelland Make $10K Stud Final Table It’s not only Hellmuth who will go into the final day of action as a recognized face looking to win more gold. Stephen Chidwick (266,000) and Jack McClelland (185,000) may have fewer chips, but anything can happen and the chips can change very quickly in mixed games. With James Chen (660,000), Jose Paz-Gutierrez (586,000) and Jason Gola (542,000) all still in contention, it is bound to be an entertaining final session on Monday evening. On Day 2, just three players made the money as the top 10 were paid with Daniel Zack busted in 10th place by Stephen Chidwick for a result worth $16,262, George Alexander eliminated in 9th place for $17,828, and Scott Bohlman losing his tournament life in 8th place for $20,480. Both Alexander and Bohlman were taken out by Jason Gola as the night wound to a close. WSOP 2021 Event #19 Seven Card Stud Championship Final Table Chipcounts: Phil Hellmuth - 751,000 Anthony Zinno - 730,000 James Chen - 660,000 Jose Paz-Gutierrez - 586,000 Jason Gola - 542,000 Stephen Chidwick - 266,000 Jack McClelland - 185,000 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball Event in the Balance as Early Hours End Play The $2,500-entry Mixed Triple Draw Lowball saw what should have been its final day end with heads-up on hiatus as Vladimir Peck and Venkata Tayi ended the action locked in a battle for the WSOP bracelet. The day began with 12 still in seats. Once play was down to the seven-handed final table, Brian Yoon had the chip lead, and several players were very short stacked. The lowest of the low was Carlos Rodriguez, who busted almost immediately in seventh place for $15,272 in A-5 Triple Draw, losing his stack to Joao Vieira. Hal Rotholz was the next player to depart, losing in 2-7 Triple Draw in a hand against Yoon and Venkata Tayi for a sixth-place prize of $20,828. He was followed from the event by Brian Yoon, but it was a protracted period of play that lasted beyond a dinner break and ended in a Badugi bust-out for $28,818 as Vieira again came out on top in the clash between the two remaining bracelet winners in the field. It was Badugi again that delivered Aaron Rogers from the event, as the American player fell victim to Vieira in fourth place for $40,443. Despite winning that hand, however, Vieira himself fell in third place for $57,558, albeit over an hour later. Losing in A-5 Triple Draw, Tayi was again the beneficiary, claiming a pot that gave him the leads heads-up with 5.3 million chips to Vladimir Peck’s 3.5 million. The heads-up battle that followed was so long that with the time approaching 3 am, both Peck and Tayi were asked if they wanted to play one more level or come back the next day. That level concluded with Peck on 3,275,000 chips, with Tayi in the lead on 5,575,000. Play will resume - and doubtless conclude - on Day 12 when the gold is finally won. WSOP 2021 Event #18 $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball Final Table Results: 3rd - Joao Vieira - $57,558 4th - Aaron Rogers - $40,443 5th - Brian Yoon - $28,818 6th - Hal Rotholz - $20,828 7th - Carlos Rodriguez - $15,272 The Field Narrows on Millionaire Maker Day 2 The Millionaire Maker has become one of the signature events on the WSOP calendar in Las Vegas and this year’s return to Rio has seen a total of 5,330 entries and a prize pool of just under $8 million. As the event name tells you, that means a million up top and after Day 2 trimmed the remaining 1,174 players down to just 170 hopefuls, it was Darryl Ronconi who bagged the biggest stack. Ronconi’s chip mountain of 2,545,000 is a three-bet and a call ahead of both Apolinario Luis (2,345,000) and Thomas Eychenne (2,275,000), both of whom have terrific stacks with which to attack Day 3, but they’re not the only ones. In the top 10 alone, there are some fearsome players armed to the teeth with raising chips, with Shahar Levi (1,955,000) and Faraz Jaka (1,625,000) standing out as ones to watch. A little further back in the field, Ryan Hagerty (1,100,000), Tristan Wade (1,500,000), Craig Varnell (765,000) Yiming Li (595,000), Stephen Song (1,385,000) all bagged up stacks at the close of play. So too did Vanessa Kade (1,520,000), who knows all about winning over a million after taking down the Sunday Million earlier this year. Kade detailed her personal experience of a fairly sour end to Day 1a on Twitter that has definitely seen some karma come her way on Day 2. https://twitter.com/VanessaKade/status/1446740649005367302 Every tournament win is a battle but perhaps never more so than at the World Series of Poker, with Ari Engel, who has already won a bracelet this series admitting it was some time before he hit his stride. https://twitter.com/AriEngelPoker/status/1447301982876626946 WSOP 2021 Event #17 Millionaire Maker Top 10 Chipcounts: Darryl Ronconi - 2,545,000 Apolinario Luis - 2,345,000 Thomas Eychenne - 2,275,000 John Fagg - 1,970,000 Shahar Levi - 1,955,000 Michael Mcnicholas - 1,670,000 Faraz Jaka - 1,625,000 Arie Kliper - 1,615,000 Luis Zedan - 1,570,000 Jeffery Wakamiya - 1,555,000 David Peters Survives Flip & Go Day 1 The $1,000-entry Flip & Go event, Event #20, saw just 23 players survive from a starting field of 1,232. David Williams had more tries than most at making the money in Event #20 and was applauded by most for his efforts on Twitter. https://twitter.com/dwpoker/status/1447343223844728832   When the dust settled, there were plenty of big names still in with a chance of adding what is a unique WSOP bracelet to their collection. Huy Lam (3,150,000) bagged up by far the biggest stack of the day and leads from Corey Bierria (1,880,000) by some distance. Players such as Rok Gostisa (1,115,000) and David Peters (1,105,000) will look to use all their experience to put themselves in contention for the top prize. Others, such as Daniel Negreanu, Shaun Deeb, and Gal Yifrach all busted before the close of play. WSOP 2021 Event #20 $1,000 Flip & Go Top 10 Chipcounts: Huy Lam - 3,150,000 Corey Bierria - 1,880,000 Krista Farrell - 1,700,000 David Towson - 1,600,000 Mark Ingram - 1,385,000 Joao Valli - 1,350,000 Fred Goldberg - 1,245,000 Roman Hrabec - 1,200,000 Rok Gostisa - 1,115,000 David Peters - 1,105,000 Daniel Negreanu, Ari Engel Bag Chips In $1,500 Mixed Omaha 8 There were 640 players who took on the $1,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better event and after a long first day of the tournament, only 199 players zipped up chips. It is local Henderson, Nevada-based player Scott Abrams who leads the pack with 275,000 chips, but plenty of other big players are still in with a great chance of a deep run, with Ari Engel (238,000) going for his second bracelet this live series. Others such as Daniel Negreanu (147,000), John Monnette (103,500), Randy Ohel (83500), Dylan Linde (106,500), and Derek McMaster (162,500) all bagged up chips, with stars such as Eli Elezra, Mike Matusow, Nathan Gamble, Jake Daniels, Ken Aldridge, Ben Yu, and Barry Greenstein. WSOP 2021 Event #21 $1,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo or Better Top 10 Chipcounts: Scott Abrams - 275,000 Ari Engel - 230,000 Nathaniel Katzoff - 222,500 PJ Cha - 215,000 Cody Scherer - 207,000 John Cernuto - 178,000 Yonatan Smith - 177,500 Edward Han - 167,000 Derek McMaster - 162,500 Julien Martini - 150,500 Chance Kornuth isn’t just a former WSOP bracelet winner but would not stand by and watch a dealer getting berated. The comments section on his latest act at the poker table tell how most players and fans back his actions. https://twitter.com/ChancesCards/status/1447361730598748166 The spirit of fun seems to have taken over players of the highest standard, with poker legend Erik Seidel joking about a ‘ruff’ time over at his table. https://twitter.com/Erik_Seidel/status/1447470233166307334 Finally, he may not be at the World Series of Poker yet, but if the Rio does play host to Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates, then it could be the closing story we all need. Just... unique. https://twitter.com/junglemandan/status/1447263387541557249
  2. The latest round of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker titles have been won and there were some big names among those taking the top prizes. Polish poker legend Dzmitry Urbanovich, All-Time Online Money List leader Joao Vieira, and former Sunday Million winner Mantas ‘bagoch’ Bagočius all took home titles while notable pros Patrick Leonard, Parker Talbot, and former #1-ranked Chris Oliver all coming close. The biggest event on the WCOOP calendar over the last couple of days was easily the $25,000-entry Super High Roller, which was won by Hungarian player ‘kZhh’ after a thrilling final table saw players such as Justin Bonomo and Adrian Mateos both missed out. It’s worth looking back at this unique event in isolation, so here is how the final nine finished: WCOOP Event #34-H $25,000 Super High Roller: ‘kZhh’ (Hungary) - $657,557 Chris Oliver (U.S.A.) - $509,470 ‘spaise411’ (Russia) - $394,733 Adrian Mateos (Spain) - $305,835 Fabiano Kovalski (Brazil) - $236,959 Justin Bonomo (U.S.A.) $183,593 ‘CrazyLissy’ (Russia) - $142,247 Pedro Padilha (Brazil) - $110,211 ‘Sintoras’ (Germany) - $87,327 Chris Oliver came mighty close to winning that title but lost out heads-up to the first-time winner from Hungary, ‘kZhh’, who also took down the 2021 PokerStars SCOOP Main Event for over $878,000. Oliver, a former worldwide #1-ranked online player who took down the WCOOP $1k PKO Event back in 2019, will have been disappointed not to get over the line, but he was in great company in doing so. Adrian Mateos can claim to have had it harder than most, although it’s only down to his own skill that the Spaniard might have found the final table tougher than the others, as he was also playing the WSOP $25,000-entry event on the same day. Polish superstar Dzmitry Urbanovich claimed his latest major title under his online pseudonym ‘Colisea’ as he bagged Event #32-H ($1,050 NLHE) for a top prize of $77,614. Pipping last year's WSOP Main Event winner Damian ‘pampa27’ Salas to the title, Urbanovich, the former partypoker pro who left his pro team back in June, also outlasted ‘Piggysnipz’, who came in third for $43,587. Urbanovich has enjoyed a hugely successful last few years, and while he is known as a top professional in the live arena, this latest online victory will have reminded players and fans of just how good he is no matter where he shuffles up. In Event 33-H ($530 8-Max PKO Freezeout), Manuel ‘fellatiado’ Ruivo took the title, winning $30,528 in bounties and the $44,791 top prize, edging out ‘Mr.LuckyMan88’ (second for over $57,00 in total) and 'gabsdrogba’, who banked over - $38,000 for reaching the podium. Plenty of other events took place over Monday and Tuesday, with Event #35-H ($2,100 5-Card PLO 6-Max) won by ‘cmontopdeck’ for $62,020, beating Richard 'raconteur' Gryko into second place for $47,206. Gryko, who won $107,761 for another WCOOP runner-up result in September last year, will be distraught to have taken silver yet again. Elsewhere, former Sunday Million winner Mantas ‘bagoch’ Bagočius won Event #38-H ($2,100 6-Max PKO) to grab over $125,000, a massive proportion of the $646,000 prize pool spread out over 323 entries. This win may not quite have reached the heights of that $168,883 Sunday Million win back in 2015, but it was another major event. Few players being able to claim they have won both a WCOOP and the ‘Milly’. The Sunday Million winner this week was also the WCOOP Event #34-H winner, of course, with ‘MrHyde97’ winning the $245,066 top prize, edging out ‘THE MOVER 92’ heads-up. In the other high events, Parker Talbot won $12,880 in Event #39-H ($1,050 Razz 8-Max), falling just short of the title in third place. Event #40-H ($1,050 7-Max Freezeout) saw Joao Vieira claim yet another massive win as he outlasted ‘WhatIfGod’ to win the $64,680 top prize, with ‘ThePateychuk’ coming in third. Finally, in Event #41-H ($2,100 FL 2-7 Triple Draw 6-Max) it was the turn of ‘Assad91’ to get the better of all their opponents, with the top prize of $36,819 claimed by the Argentinian. It was a British duo who made the other two places on the podium as Luke Schwartz won $23,531 in second place and Patrick Leonard came third for $15,038. In low and medium events, there were wins for ‘stepibakins’ (Event #33-L), ‘Baca4b’ (Event #33-M), ‘Perrymejsen’ (Event #34-M), ‘anti-durrr’ (Event #35-L), ‘shrekpoker91’ (Event #35-M), ‘Durabo’ (Event #36-L), ‘$uperdecay’ (Event #36-M), ‘anth0nypappa’ (Event #37-L), ‘0PIGGYBANK’ (Event #37-M), ‘Gladi3’ (Event #38-L), ‘piton4479’ (Event #38-M), ‘DoePopoe’ (Event #39-L), ‘Jindujun0805’ (Event #39-M), ‘Hackysack27’ (Event #40-L), ‘PPthegod90’ (Event #40-M), ‘Mattuttes’ (Event #41-L) and ‘vpisjak’ (Event #41-M).

  3. The latest PokerStars 2021 World Championship of Online Poker events have paid out some huge prizes as big names have again hoovered up some titles to add to their poker resumés. Winners across Wednesday and Thursday included the German high roller Christian ‘WATnlos’ Rudolph, who took down the High Event #24 for $71,404, former #2-ranked pro Ivan Zufic, and longtime Belgian grinder Thomas 'MarToMchat' Boivin. Rudolph, who has previously won two High Roller tournaments in one day, as we previously reported, saw off some top-quality opposition to seal an impressive victory. In what was an exciting final table in an event with 179 entries at $2,100, Rudolph saw off the challenge of Swedish player ‘fkiw’ and ‘luckyluck653’ in the podium places, with two Brazilians also making the final table. The massive prize pool of $358,000 saw Rudolph win the biggest prize, but the Brazilian contingent was an indication of what was to come over days ahead, as once again, South American players continued to fly high during what has been a spectacular summer for online poker in the continent. It was a big couple of days for Brazilian players specifically, with half a dozen more victories in low and medium events in a series that has seen the Brazilian poker game thrive, just as it is in World Series of Poker events too. In other events, Swiss player Dinesh Alt took down the $530-entry Event #12 (High) by beating former SCOOP Main Event winner ‘Alexgirs’ heads-up for the $37,306 in bounties and the $37,290 top prize. Other players at the final table included Fintan ‘easywithaces’ Hand, who finished seventh for over $8,300 in total. In other high events, ‘MarToMchat’ outlasted a field of 271 players to win Event #17 (High) for a whopping $130,500.00. Climbing the ranks of PocketFives, ‘MarToMchat’ is racing into the top 250 players in the world at the time of writing and is currently the best Belgian poker player online. Chris ‘ImDaNuts’ Oliver finished seventh for $18,000. Austria-based ‘stojamanu’ won Event #18 for $58,458 against Joao Vieira a.k.a. ‘Naza114’ who came second for $42,562, with ‘Andre_Hansen’ from Ukraine coming in third for $30,989. Event #19 was won by Croatia’s former world online poker #2 ranked player, Ivan 'zufo16' Zufic. Zufic won it for $62,438, with Malta-based ‘WhaTisL0v3’ winning $46,541 and another Brazilian, ‘edercampana’ winning $34,691 for finishing third. Joao Vieira came in seventh for $10,709. Event #21-H was won by British-based player ‘1b6121’ for $22,850, with fellow Brit and well-known super high roller regular Talal ‘raidalot’ Shakerchi coming third for $10,024. Finally, Event #25 saw ‘KennedyPK97’ beat 667 players to win the top prize of $24,588. Tuesday and Wednesday saw plenty of big winners at medium and low stakes too, with ‘Bib5300’ (Event 12-L), ‘edercampana’ (Event #12-M), ‘danieldl7’ (Event #17-L), diego07791 (Event 17-M), ‘zemachess’ (18-L in an event where Britain’s Billy Chattaway finished sixth), ‘ego_E_d_G_e_’(Event #18-M), ‘vncdzk1’ (Event #19-L) ‘dx2celt’ (Event #19-M), ‘ibrahim4272’ (Event #20-L), ‘Valaqual’ (Event21-L), Ami ‘UhhMee’ Barer (Event #21-M), ‘AlexandreAnd’ (Event #24-L), ‘joaoMathias’ (Event #24-M), ‘martinkom111’ (Event #25-L) ‘petpat123’ (Event #25-M) all winners across the two days.

  4. 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.

  5. Brazilian domination over PocketFives Online Player of the Month honors continued in July as current worldwide #6-ranked Renan Carlos Bruschi became the latest player from the poker powerhouse country to take home the title. Bruschi joins the likes of Brunno Botteon, Yuri Dzivielevski, Dalton Hobold, and Geraldo Cesar in the parade of Brazilians who have claimed the top spot in the monthly race. In July, Bruschi earned 3,251 leaderboard points, more than enough to keep second place Christopher ‘basile28’ Basile at bay by 116 points and eclipsing Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira by 396 points. Bruschi’s results were bolstered by a pair of high roller victories including his win in the July 11 edition of the PokerStars $1,050 Sunday HR for $32,055 and 398.75 points. Then, on July 21, he bested the 172-entry field of the GGPoker $1,050 High Rollers Super Tuesday for $39,526.48 and another 414.73 points. The pair of scores both made it into Bruschi’s top-20 career scores, but they weren’t the only five-figure cashes of his month. At the same time he was taking down the PokerStars High Roller Club, Bruschi finished as the runner-up in the PokerStars $109 Bounty Builder for a score of more than $11,700. The very next day he continued his string of deep runs with another second-place finish in the GGPoker $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Heater for $12,382 and 194.04 points. By the end of the month, Bruschi recorded a total of 125 cashes for more than $242,000. This marks his second career monthly title, his first since 2015 and now he sits just $111,000 away from surpassing $7 million in total career earnings. it was also a mammoth month for current #1-ranked American grinder Christopher ‘basile28’ Basile who finished second in the Online Player of the Month race by grinding the World Series of Poker events on WSOP.com. In total, Basile had 59 results which earned him more than $266,000. While he wasn’t able to lock down a gold bracelet, he did pick up six five-figure scores including a career-high cash. On July 2, Basile fell just one place short of a bracelet when he finished as the runner-up in WSOP Bracelet Event #1 ($500 NLHE The BIG 500 Kickoff) for $64,935 and 500.13 points, which, at the time, was far and away the largest score of his online career. Days later, on July 7 he took down the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $17,835 and 247.39 points. Basile continued to accumulate scores but his largest of his month, and career-to-date, came on July 21 when he finished in fourth place in WSOP Bracelet Event #20 ($3,200 NLHE High Roller) for $71,990 and 423.91 points. When all was said and done, Basile racked up 3,135 leaderboard points, soared past $1 million in total lifetime earnings, and climbed to a career-high worldwide ranking of #52 in the world. While Basile is just getting started when it comes to racking up big-time scores, Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira - this month’s third-place finisher with 2,855 points - is a veteran in the game. With over $25 million in recorded lifetime earning, Vieira is currently sitting atop the Online All-Time Money List and spent the better part of July doing what he does best - grinding. Vieira posted 76 in-the-money finishes for a total of $244,784, the bulk of which came on July 5 when he finished as the runner-up to Damian Salas in the 589-entry field of the GGPoker $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Main Event for $86,179 and 506.34 points. He followed that up with another pair of five-figure scores including a fourth-place finish in the July 6 edition of the GGPoker $100K High Rollers Main Event for $17,950 and on July 19 he made the final table of the $1,050 Battle of Malta Sunday High Rollers for another $27,160.

  6. Almost 11 months to the day after Nicolo Molinelli won his first World Series of Poker bracelet on GGPoker.com, the Italian poker pro won his second by winning WSOP Online Event #3 ($2,500 Limit Hold'em Championship) on GGPoker for nearly $90,000. Molinelli eliminated three of his final eight opponents after working his way through the 180-runner field to make the final table. Mark Radoja came to the final table with the shortest stack and after just five minutes of play, made his stand. Radoja raised to 50,000 from the button and Stanislav Kuvaev called from the small blind. After the [poker card="ts"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4d"] flop. Kuvaev checked-raised to 50,000 and Radoja re-raised for his last 7,500. Kuvaev showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="tc"] for top pair while Radoja held [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"]. The turn was the [poker card="2s"] and the [poker card="8h"] river completed the board to eliminate Radoja in ninth. It took another 90 minutes of action before the next player was eliminated. Blinds had gone up to 30,000/60,000. Molinelli raised to 120,000 from the small blind and Kuvaev made it three bets from the big. Kuvaev then shoved for 281,775 after Molinelli clicked it back to him. Kuvaev tabled [6[6 and would need to hold against Molinelli's [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3c"] flop was a safe one for Kuvaev but the [poker card="jc"] turn gave Molinelli extra out to a flush. The [poker card="as"] river gave Molinelli a pair of aces and ended Kuvaev's run in eighth place. Once again, the deep structure meant that there was a wait for the next bustout. Just over 45 minutes after Kuvaev was eliminated, current #4-ranked Joao Vieira was sent to the rail. Vieira struggled to stay afloat. Alex Fortin-Demers opened from UTG+1 and Vieira called from the big blind. After the [poker card="7h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2s"] flop, Vieira check-raised to 160,000 and then called all in after Fortin-Demers three-bet. Fortin-Demers showed [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] while Vieira tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="3c"] for a wheel draw. The turn was the [poker card="7c"] and the river was the [poker card="6s"] to miss all of Vieira's outs and eliminated the Portuguese pro in seventh. Fortin-Demers carried some momentum for the next 15 minutes and in the process found another victim. Romain Dours raised to 240,000 from the big blind after Fortin-Demers had limped from the small. The flop was [poker card="jh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7h"] and Fortin-Demers check-called Dours' bet. He then checked again after the [poker card="ah"] river and Dours bet 144,000 all in and Fortin-Demers called and tabled [poker card="8s"][poker card="7d"]. Dours showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"] and was down to two outs heading to the river. The [poker card="qc"] completed the board and sent Dours out in sixth place. Exactly one half-hour later, Molinelli put another player away. Vince Cavailles pushed his last 378,500 into the middle from early position with [poker card="ks"][poker card="6h"] and Molinelli defended his big blind with [poker card="jh"][poker card="8c"]. The board ran out [poker card="td"][poker card="8h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="9c"] to give Molinelli a pair of eights which were good enough to beat Cavailles' turned pair of sixes and Cavailles was eliminated in fifth. Despite being responsible for sending a pair of players home earlier, Fortin-Demers was the next player to go. Down to just 826,050 and with blinds at 100,000/200,000, Fortin-Demers got all of his chips in against Renan Bruschi preflop. Fortin-Demers had [poker card="kc"][poker card="qh"] while Bruschi had [poker card="ah"][poker card="5h"]. The [poker card="td"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2h"] flop changed nothing and all Fortin-Demers could do was watch as the [poker card="2c"] turn and [poker card="2d"] river cemented his fourth place elimination. At this point, Molinelli was the shortest remaining stack but he doubled on the first hand of three-handed play to leave Milos Petakovic as the shortest remaining stack. Down to less than two big blinds, Petakovic was all in with [poker card="9h"][poker card="2h"] against the [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"] of Bruschi. Petakovic found no relief on the flop, turn, or river and was eliminated in third place. Bruschi began heads up play with the chip lead but with 20 total big blinds in play, it didn't take long for Molinelli to flip the script and take out his Brazilian opponent. On the final hand of the tournament, Bruschi had just 833,300 left to play with before paying his big blind. Molinelli had taken most of Bruschi's chip on the previous hand and collected the remainder by raising to 600,000 and then calling when Bruschi moved all in. Bruschi was ahead with [poker card="qd"][6] against Molinelli's [poker card="ts"][poker card="4s"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"][poker card="2s"] flop gave the Italian top pair and as the [poker card="ah"] turn and [poker card="5s"] river completed the board, Bruschi was out in second place and Molinelli laid claim to a WSOP Online bracelet on GGPoker for the second year in a row. GGPoker WSOP Event #3 Final Table Payouts Nicolo Molinelli - $88,461 Renan Bruschi - $66,336 Milos Petakovic - $49,745 Alex Fortin-Demers - $37,303 Vince Cavailles - $27,974 Romain Dours - $20,977 Joao Vieira - $15,731 Stanislav Kuvaev - $11,796 Mark Radoja - $8,846
