When the final table of Event #64 ($840 Turbo Bounty NLHE) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online started on Sunday night, India's Kartik Ved had the smallest of the eight remaining stacks with just 3.5 big blinds. Over the hour that followed Ved watched other players busting out before him while he continued to accumulate chips and he beat Konstantin Maslak heads-up to become the fifth Indian bracelet winner. Kirian Loeffler and Gueorgui Gantchev were eliminated in 10th and ninth place respectively on the final hand of hand-for-hand play on the final table bubble, setting up an eight-handed final table. Ricardo Da Silva was looking to become the fifth Brazilian bracelet winner of 2020 and thought he'd found a dream spot for a double up just five minutes after the final table started. Down to just 2.5 big blinds, Da Silva moved all in from late position with 976,618 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="ah"] and Maslak moved all in over the top from the button with [poker card="kd"][poker card="jh"]. Maslak made top pair on the [poker card="js"][poker card="7c"][poker card="6h"] flop and improved to two pair thanks to the [poker card="kh"] turn. The [poker card="ks"] river actually gave Maslak a unneeded full house to eliminate Da Silva in eighth. GGPoker ambassador and fellow Brazilian Felipe Ramos followed him out the door. Action folded to Ramos on the button and he moved all in for 2,215,249 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="th"] only to have Ved call from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="9c"]. Ramos picked up an open-ended straight draw on the [poker card="qh"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7d"] flop. Ved improved to two pair with [poker card="ad"] turn and the [poker card="9h"] river missed Ramos to eliminate him in seventh place. Ved found another spot just four minutes later to send another player to the rail. Jon Clark moved all in from the hijack for 3,699,024 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"] and Ved moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] having Clark covered. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="js"] flop gave Clark top two pair but left Ved with a set of jacks. The turn was the [poker card="5c"] and the [poker card="ah"] river made Clark's sixth place finish official. Four minutes later, Ved further moved up the chip counts at the expense of another player's tournament life. Dan Borlan moved all in for 618,764 on the button with [poker card="kh"][poker card="9d"] and Ved called from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="tc"]. The board ran out [poker card="6h"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="8c"] to eliminate Borlan in fifth place. At this point Ved had 60% of the chips in play. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver Tim West was the next player sent packing. Maslak moved all in from the button for 14,631,604 with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"] and West called all in from the small blind with [poker card="7c"][poker card="7h"] before Javier Fernandez called from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"] flop gave Fernandez control of the pot and neither West or Maslak managed to find any salvation with the [poker card="td"] turn or [poker card="9h"] river. West was eliminated in fourth place while Fernandez tripled up. Fernandez wasn't able to create any momentum with that pot and only ended up with a 10 minute stay of execution. Maslak folded his button and Fernandez moved all in for 11,282,860 from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="2d"] before Ved called from the big blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="9c"]. Both players caught a piece of the [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"][poker card="3d"] flop but Ved moved well ahead after the [poker card="kd"] hit the turn. The [poker card="6s"] river was no help for Fernandez and he was out in third. Ved had a better than 6-1 lead over Maslak when heads up play began. Over the first 30 minutes of heads up play, Maslak picked up a pair of double ups and eventually took over the chip lead. Ved battled back and reassumed the top spot before finally putting Maslak away. Down to an 11 big blind stack, Maslak moved all in for 17,097,520 from the button with [poker card="kh"][poker card="6c"] and Ved called with [poker card="jh"][poker card="8h"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3c"] flop changed nothing but Ved made top pair on the [poker card="jd"] turn. Needing a king to stay alive, Maslak got no good news with the [poker card="td"] river and Ved eliminated him to win the bracelet and earn Final Table Payouts Kartik Ved - $131,461.47 + $102,971.90 in bounties Konstantin Maslak - $94,520.60 + $24,270.31 in bounties Javier Fernandez - $67,961.12 + $11,534.37 in bounties Tim West - $48,864.65 + $8,093.75 in bounties Dan Borlan - $35,134.02 + $22,848.43 in bounties Jon Clark - $25,261.67 + $11,531.25 in bounties Felipe Ramos - $18,163.34 + $6,012.50 in bounties Ricardo Da Silva - $13,059.52 + $16,884.37 in bounties Gueorgui Gantchev - $9,389.90 + $11,268.75 in bounties
